Parizaad Episode 27 Story Review – Giving Up

This was yet another episode covering Parizaad’s never-ending inner struggles versus the outer appearances he keeps in order to make sure that his outer persona matches his status! It is interesting that even though his entire journey was focused at getting loved by someone unconditionally, he still does not have a problem accepting himself and holding himself accountable towards the end. There have been so many instances where the writer made us believe that even with all his struggles, Parizaad always accepted himself wholeheartedly. Tonight’s episode yet again showed that Parizaad is still the same person he was back when he was rejected by Naheed! I am glad that the writer kept the beauty of this character alive right till the end. Annie’s feelings for Parizaad appeared to be much stronger in this episode than ever. This was another episode that belonged to Ahmed Ali Akbar who has always kept the essence of his character alive by translating its different shades impeccably on screen. The writer Hashim Nadeem’s dialogues definitely stand out and the director Shehzad Kashmiri has made sure that these meaningful dialogues are not lost in translation.

Making Important Decisions

Parizaad met yet another person from his past whose selfishness and insensitivity impacted his entire life. Seth Noman was perhaps the one who made Parizaad realize more than ever that he needed money in order to live a life on his own terms and conditions. This meeting was quite interesting since the tables had turned completely and just like most of the people from Parizaad’s past, Noman was more than willing to give Parizaad the kind of respect which his status demanded! The expressions on his face were priceless when he found out who P.Z Mir actually was!

Nasaaz got his happy ending in this episode but Parizaad was just as lost today as he was back in the day when he met Nasaaz for the first time. The writer has through Parizaad’s journey established the fact that money cannot buy happiness! Parizaad has not been able to change himself entirely even though he tried. His conversation with Behroze Karim made his mental state more clear than ever. Parizaad’s scenes tonight showed two completely different sides of his character. There were times when it felt as if he was more than comfortable being the person he was. He refused to get cosmetic surgery done because he did not want such a change to alter his personality. However, he also considered himself a coward and a failure because he has not been able to make the changes in his personality that were needed to make him attain the unattainable!Parizaad Episode 27 Story Review – Giving Up

I must say that Parizaad’s decision to spare Sharjeel’s life did not come as a surprise at all. The most pleasant aspect of this development was Parizaad getting a reality check from the person in the mirror which represented Parizaad’s actual personality. By the end of this episode, Parizaad made yet another decision that involved helping others and it seems as if he is going to distance himself from this life which he has been living as P.Z Mir. While watching this episode I felt that Parizaad did stand a chance had he decided to be there when Annie got her eyesight back but it seems as if he has made up his mind that Annie deserves better than him! Even though Annie has more than once expressed her reverence for him yet somehow Parizaad does not feel worthy of all the love and appreciation he gets from her. Since Sharjeel shared his actual feelings for Annie with him, he feels obligated to be the “giver” this time around as well! Annie’s praise for Parizaad was a little too long; these dialogues could easily have been chopped down. Other than that, this episode was perfectly put together and had my undivided attention.

Final Remarks

This was another meaningful and engaging episode of Parizaad. It was directed brilliantly which definitely added to its appeal. I am looking forward to an ending that will be in line with the main theme of this drama. A happy ending is highly unlikely since Parizaad is not even willing to try but there could also be a surprise in store since Annie was much more expressive tonight than she has ever been. Will Annie choose Parizaad over Sharjeel? Or will Parizaad’s journey end on a sad note? I am waiting to find out!

  • Nice review !!

    Hashim nadeem is the one who puts thoughts to the words . But m anxiously waiting that what PZ will navigate his ways onwards ..
    Neither his sincerity nor his wealth met him the true love .
    So what are the parameters of finding a true love ?
    Is it ok to live in this world without love ?
    Or the external beauty is that much important to find ur love ?
    Or the writer wants to prove that true love in this world is very rare ? Coz we can see in PZ case ..
    m very curious about the message in last episode

    • I think it is because Parizaad’s experiences in life has been bitter enough for him to feel this way. I can completely understand his insecurities as he doesn’t feel confident enough that Annie likes him. The only saving grace could have been Parizaad’s confession of his feelings to Annie but Sharjeel telling him about his feelings stopped him from going that way.

      I think the way the writer has written this thought of Parizaad, he has thought everything through and has left no loose ends there. As a viewer, we are able to see Annie holds him closer to her heart but Parizaad, due to his past experiences, is not confident enough of this happening and he just wants to leave as a pleasant memory from Annie’s life, rather than a bitter thought (from Parizaad’s perspective). Also, the fact that he went to the extent of getting someone killed to get someone’s love makes him feel miserable.

      He did say that he has now understood why Behroze killed the one who he loved so dearly and that he isn’t brave enough to handle another heartbreak.

  • He should express his feelings in front of ainne , idk what’s wrong with him why he’s not telling her about his love for her , insecurity itni next level q ha k acha khasa intelligent insan yeh bewqoofi krha ha .. Ainne doesn’t deserve that she’s constantly trying ko make him feel his level of importance in her life but why he’s unable to understand or if he’s well aware about her love, then that’s not a sensible decision to leave her behind when he knows he meant everything to her .

    • Understanding the character deeply is very important to get your all answers. It’s always about Parizaad’s inferiority complexes and his longing for love gaze… He has made up his mind that if Annie will get a chance to choose between him and Sharjeel then she will definitely choose Sharjeel.. Not only because he is more handsome, lively and loves Annie but also they share a bond with each other too.. He just simply doesn’t want to take the chance of being rejected once again because this time, it’s deeper than ever and he doesn’t want to feel humiliated by his true love of life. It’s all in his mind because of his complexes and past experiences.. Kesy parizad ka complex usay bulandiyo tak ly kar gya or kesy us ka yehi complex use dobara mehroomio me ly kar jaega or kya usy kabi wo aik payar bharri nazar mil sky gi ya nahi.. this is the entire plot.

  • Thanks for the wonderful review, Fatima. I liked your statement, “I am glad that the writer kept the beauty of this character alive right till the end.” Dropping the killing idea made me relax that our Parizaad is the same old guy. The meeting with Seth Nouman was good & you detailed it out correctly. I will add only one observation. After the whole conversation happened between them, the hand offered by Seth Noman with palm up and at a much low level, was great to show that he now accepts the offer with great respect. The usual handshake with palm touching vertically are for the deals among equal partners, here he makes Parizaad bigger than him. This episode also has good dialogues, my favorite one was between Nasaaz & him when he says; “Bahot der karta hun main, zaruri baat kehne mein (for Naheed), wada nibhane mein (for Bubbly), use awaaz deni ho (for Lubna), use wapas bulana ho (again for Naheed).” The reference in brackets makes the dialogue special. The meeting with Majid have also one highlight. When he says giving sweets to Mirza sahab has gave you good fruit (in terms of Naheed) then Kanwal see Parizaad & appreciate his greatness that how beautifully he hides his own feeling towards Naheed and did not give any hint till now, to Majid. And Parizaad says through eyes to Kanwal that no matter what happens he will always respect his first love. Finally, the decision made by Parizaad going aloof will have good surprises, I guess so. As I think, he will not go to meet Annie post her operation due to the complex that she will reject her, but she will start looking for him everywhere and finally, she will find him in his isolation and confesses her love.

  • Another great review! I am glad that Parizaad had a pang of conscience and gave up his plan of killing Sharjeel. Even though it seems that Annie feels more than respect for him, I think his inferiority complex has ensured that Annie won’t find him in time to reciprocate his feelings.

  • 1st time in my life most most most…….Drama. I don’t have the words to use for this play.
