Mushk continues to move forward at a steady pace. Tonight’s episode showed how the important decisions taken by some of the leading characters affected their lives and others around them. The way they went ahead with executing their plans, said a great deal about these characters. While all the other characters are smart enough to predict the results of their actions, Shayan continues to be the naïve coward who always ends up getting into trouble. Even when he thought that everything was under control he was shaking with fear and his body language suggested that he lacked confidence. I haven’t warmed up to Roshni and Saqib just yet. Their scenes were also meaningful and gave us reason to believe that Saqib indeed is in love with Roshni and this time around he has made up his mind. It would be interesting to watch how his khala adds to their story. Some of the dialogues today were more verbose than usual.
The best thing about Mushk so far is its unpredictability and how all the characters add something different to the story. None of the characters is just a side character, each one of them has some significance or the other. Qavi Khan’s character played an important role in saving Roshni and Saqib today. He also adds a spiritual element to the story which is perhaps Imran Ashraf’s way of sharing his own beliefs and ideas with the viewers. Qavi Khan was the perfect choice for playing this role since he makes this character meaningful yet light-hearted at the same time. You feel that this person is genuine and even though most of his dialogues have been deep and serious, he delivers them in a simple and playful manner.
Malik sahib ended up in the hospital after finding out what had actually happened. Once again he asked Adam to look for Roshni since he is the only one he trusts. I felt for Adam yet again tonight since everyone seems to be relying on him and there isn’t a single person he can share his own ordeal with. It won’t be wrong to say that Guddi is perhaps the only one who actually understands what Adam might be going through. The way she interrupted Mehak and Adam today suggested that she knows that Adam is not just a ‘friend’ who is helping Mehak out. Watching Mehak put someone else before Shayan was a pleasant change and it was also good to see her acknowledging the fact that she has been really selfish. This basically goes to show that the writer wanted to show her as someone who made quite a few selfish decisions in her life. She has not been shown as a victim but as someone who put her own happiness about that of her grandfather who trusted her.
Guddi continued to enjoy the aftermath of everything she had managed to achieve! She is the smartest character in the drama who knows exactly what she wants. She also gets things done with the least bit of emotions involved. The preview of the next episode suggested that she will take her plan further quickly as the story progresses. Roshni and Saqib’s conversations gave a background to their love story for the first time. Saqib is not scared anymore and he wants a quick nikkah. They have managed to escape and it remains to be seen how loyal the khala is. If she also turns out to be greedy then the story might take a different turn.
