Pyar Ke Sadqay Episode 26 Story Review – Emotional & Meaningful

Tonight’s episode of Pyar Ke Sadqay was emotional, well-executed, and well written. Although the most important development in the story was Munshi sahab’s exit, the way the writer used it to show the evilest side of Sarwar we have seen yet was pure genius! The characterizations and the performances continue to be the most compelling aspect of Pyar Ke Sadqay. Tonight for a change the viewers got to see Mansoora’s confusion and the preview of the next episode clearly showed that even though she knows everything she chooses not to do anything about the situation because she cannot live without Sarwar. The writer, director, and actor Malik Raza did justice to Munshi sahab’s character by giving him an exit which was impactful. Even though killing a character is not the best way to solve a conflicting situation and it would have been good to see an actual change in Mansoora’s character but that was not meant to be. Overall, the entire development was taken forward and covered realistically. Yumna Zaidi performed exceptionally well tonight and the director used the flashback scenes effectively in this episode.

Abdullah In The Office

Tonight’s episode opened with a really interesting scene, Abdullah sitting in his new office getting all the respect and validation he had been looking for his entire life. For a change, even Shanzay was quite supportive and her father seemed to have more faith in Abdullah than himself. Through this scene, the writer and the director showed that even at a time when Abdullah should have been living in the moment and enjoying the appreciation, he couldn’t help but think about Mahjabeen. Abdullah is constantly comparing his present situations with different events of the past. He thought about how Sarwar insulted him when it was his first day in his father’s office and how differently his father-in-law treated him. When he was appreciated for his skills, he thought about Mahjabeen, the person who was the first one to show the kind of appreciation which made him feel special. She was the first person who actually believed in Abdullah and was sure that he could achieve great things. These flashback scenes were brilliantly put together.

This scene also showed that Abdullah was so good with numbers that he could easily monitor such data in his own office as well if Sarwar wasn’t there to tell him that he was not good enough. All Abdullah needed was someone who would believe in him. This was also a bitter reminder of the fact that Sarwar has done so much to destroy Abdullah’s personality and shatter his confidence. This was such a meaningful scene that told so much about Abdullah by showing so little!

Sarwar’s Conversation With His Mother

I never thought I could despise Sarwar’s character more but his reaction to Munshi sahab’s death showed how evil he was! He considered his death a loss in a completely different manner. And then he thought he was the ‘victim’, the one who was misunderstood. Sarwar always shows his true colors when he has these conversations with his mother. His mother’s dialogues also show why he is such a sick person. The only gratifying aspect tonight was that Sarwar was actually shown losing his mind because he had tried everything to make Mahjabeen and his father do whatever he wanted yet they did not let him dictate to him.

Mansoora and Pho’s Meeting

After Pho and Washma’s confrontations with Mansoora in the previous two episodes, Mansoora finally decided to pay Pho a visit. This visit gave an insight into Mansoora’s present state of mind. She is not a fool, she knows she should not be trusting Sarwar but she does not know if she is strong enough to follow what her mind is telling her and not do what her heart says. I absolutely loved Pho’s character and the way it has been translated on screen. She is so poised, intelligent, and definitely the kind of person who always gives the right advice. Although she has given up on Mansoora, she listened to her and gave her the kind of advice which did make her want to visit Munshi sahab.

Washma and Munshi Sahab

Although Munshi sahab’s exit made this episode extremely sad, the good thing was that in the end, it was Washma who was with him. He asked Washma to protect his daughter and she is the kind of person who will go all out to do that. She was doing just that even before he said his final words but now she will definitely try harder to make her mother and Abdullah see the truth. There was nothing new about the scene covering Munshi sahab’s death but it was definitely covered more convincingly than other such scenes which we have seen in dramas! The credit for that goes to both the actors involved and the writer as well who did not write an entire speech! There were only a few dialogues that were used to get the message across and they were powerful enough.

The Most Emotional Scenes

Mahjabeen’s reaction to her father’s death, the way she combed his hair, the lie she told her mother to ease her, and later on her conversation with Abdullah were the most emotional scenes in this episode. Mahjabeen is in a way always looking out for the people she loves even when she is going through the most difficult times. Washma was there right by her side and Abdullah for once seemed to believe Mahjabeen even though this was the kind of ugly truth that was not easy to grasp. Yumna Zaidi and Bilal Abbas Khan’s outstanding performances made these scenes even more powerful.

Final Remarks

Tonight’s episode was well-put-together; the performance, direction and script were all impressive. The preview of the next episode was intelligently put together since it did not show Abdullah’s stance at all. I am waiting to find out whether there will be a change in Abdullah’s character or not. He should take a stand now and set his priorities straight. Mansoora, it seems, will remain ‘addicted’ to Sarwar till the end.

  • Great review. Very touching episode. I mean I’m pretty cynical and most drama deaths/funerals are so over the top. But I honestly cried watching this episode – everyone did a great job.

    I also don’t like killing off characters … seems too easy. But in this case, it did render Sarwar powerless and we got to see how horrible he is.

    I feel like I missed this – but why is Abdullah not working at his own company? I mean it is good for Abdullah do be able to show his abilities without the shadow of Sarwar. But did I miss the reason for it?

    • Thank you so much Moszs. Yes, it was really well-executed, kudos to the director and the actors involved.

      Yes!! Sarwar’s frustration is growing, it seems he is finally helpless now.

      Abdullah was going to his office, working under Sarwar but Sarwar is more than happy with the present arrangement because all he wanted was Abdullah out of his way! Muneera as you can see couldn’t care less, she does whatever Sarwar wants her to! Abdullah wasn’t too keen on working with Shanzay’s father but then he was forced into doing so.

  • I could never write a review after such a heartbreaking episode. How do you do it? You said everything! That shut up call Mahjabeen gave Sarwar won my heart. She is a strong girl more than Mansoora. She has nothing but she is still strong. Pks made me cry tonight. You are right very intelligent of the writer to use munshi jee’s death to serve bigger purposes. Round of applause for the entire team and you for doing justice to this drama.

    • Thank you so much Nimra for your continuous support and appreciation, it means a lot to me. Totally agree with you, Mahjabeen has some strengths which make her character different from others and more appealing as well. Yes, it was a really emotional episode. I hope we start seeing a change in Abdullah from the next episode.

  • This was a really sad episode. Srha and Yumna did an excellent job in this episode. Btw why haven’t you reviewed Kashf?

    I hope you’re doing well. I’m not watching this drama because of Zanjabeel’s previous works and also in different writers groups on Facebook, there are rumors k yeh script zanjabeel nay khud nhi likhi 😂 kisi aur ki mehnat per hath saaf Kiya hai. Kyun k ye zanjabeel ka andaaz he nhi
    What strengthens this rumor I’d the fact that she happens to be a content head so she gets dozens of scripts by new writers. Digest writer wali Rida Anmol bnNa is hence not difficult for her.
    Do you think it is true?
    And kindly suggest me some of the dramas that I can start watching. I haven’t been following any since Yeh Dil Mera

    • Waelukum Asalam Shorbaan, I know a lot of writers personally and I am good friends with them too lekin meinay aisi koi baat nahi suni. I don’t think something so big can simply be brushed under the carpet. I think kisi par ilzam nahi lagana chahyeh, unless the actual person comes forward and says that this is my script. I can only give my opinion but I strictly believe ke aisi batein tu social media pe hoti rehti hei zaruri nahi ke sahi hoon.

      You should watch Pyar Ke Sadqay, it is worth watching:)

      Ameen Summa Ameen. May Allah keep you and your loved ones safe too.

    • cannot blame Zainjabeel or not but these days scripts are written by so many assistants/ content heads, but only main writer gets credit.
      Active example: javeria saud used to do this with Huma Hina Nafees, but they got their credit and are now big writers in soap category

  • this episode was so sad, i didn’t know weather to watch it or forward it because i didn’t want to miss anything, why am i not surprised that next week there will be no change in Mansoora’s feelings

  • The ending was rather abrupt. The whole episode revolved around Munshi Ji’s death and that’s it. This meant there was no constructive change occurred in anyone’s life. In fact they ended the story with another huge disaster in Mahjabeen’s life without any moral message. It reflected evil Sarwar’s victory and it felt very disappointing.

  • I believe it was last episode and the drama ended. If this is the case then the ending was rather abrupt. The whole episode revolved around Munshi Ji’s death and that’s it. This meant there was no constructive change occurred in anyone’s life. In fact they ended the story with another huge disaster in Mahjabeen’s life without any moral message. It reflected evil Sarwar’s victory and it felt very disappointing.

  • Thank you for such a comprehensive and heartfelt review, Fatima. You are such an outstanding reviewer! Coming to the episode, I am not a fan of flashbacks (an overdose of those in Ishq Zahe Naseeb was such a matter of irritation for me….and the weird part is, Farooq Rind and Yumna Zaidi were part of that project as well) but this episode used flashbacks in the MOST intelligent way possible. Just the right amount to create an impact….LOVED Yumna Zaidi to death in this episode……there was nothing OTT about the whole death scenario……poignant gestures, concise yet hard-hitting dialogues…..I loved Bilal Abbas as well…..together him and Yumna create magic…..for a change, I even liked Shanzay and her dad and the way they were supporting Abdullah………Mansoora, as usual, was annoyingly helpless! Its a wonder that Farooq Rind casts her as an immature teenager in the garb of a grown woman (She was just as annoying in Besharam as a woman who takes wrong decisions at the wrong times)…..last but definitely not the least, Omair Rana was FABULOUS as Sarwar…..he doesn’t scream and doesn’t have an appearance of a villian but his hatred and evil is so effortlessly pronounced with him…..his soft-spoken discourse accentuates his terrifying charm…..once again wonderful review, Fatima! Thank you so much.

    • You’re most welcome Mehreen. Thank you so much for your kind words. I also enjoyed reading your comment and completely agree with you about Bilal Abbas, Omair Rana and Yumna, they are amazing!

  • Hye Fatima!! Hope you are doing good! ❤️ So should I start watching it again now? 😂 ( I still don’t want too because there are still 5 episodes left)
    Why can;t the admis remove this restriction of 2 reviews :( With so many webseries coming out, that too by great writers, directors and actors, we would wamt you and Zahra to review them too along with dramas and I don;t think that would be possible with 2 reviews/week.

    PS: Is everything okay with Zahra? She didn’t review Kashf this week and now hasn’t reviewed DeJ yet.

  • Oh what an episode it was….intense!

    The opening was quite light with Abdullah joining his would-be-father-in-law’s office. It gave me feels as if parents have come with the child on his first day to school. However, the flashbacks Abdullah had made the scene wonderful as we could see his confidence boost with it.

    Munshi ji’s death was also covered in a convincing manner. Washma’s dialogues when she informed Abdullah of Munshiji’s death were hard hitting and had the required impact. Sarwar’s reactions made him look the evilest person ever! However, I think it is not right to show the police involved in such things….I know many dramas show the corruption at this level but, I think, here it could’ve been easily avoided. First of all beating him so much wasn’t justified and then he died in the cell too! These scenarios can be implied rather than shown.

    Yumna did a wonderful job and so did Srha! Bilal was good too but now I think it is high time Abdullah should think things through. He has been under an influence for so long and it’s time to come out of it on his own. In an interview Bilal has said that at some point it will be shown why Abdullah is in Sarwar’s influence. I’m happy that Washma knows of Sarwar’s intentions now and she’s not someone who’ll brush it under the carpet.

    Waiting for the next episode to see what Abdullah does now.

  • Right Fatima, it was an emotional episode. Yumna has been exceptional throughout and has given an award worthy performance.Even Syra Asghar has been excellent and nice to see her also getting some powerful scenes to show her talent. Im disapp by Atiqa Odho, I dont think she has given a good perf, she fails to change her expressions, its always the same whether humsafar, besharam or this one, I feel Hina Bayat Khan is far better in such roles and she proved her versatility by doing a light hearted role in Aun Zara too.

    Its high time they move things fast, and i know it will go till 30 episodes, but really fed up of OST now, literally after even scene of Yumna or Bilal, the OST and same lines keep playing, just to drag, rather than OST, just an instrumental would have been better.

  • Today’s episode is big disappointment for me.. how every time pregnancy is shown as marriage savior in drama.. talaq na dene ke liye bacha ka ana itna jaruri hai kya… kabhi biwi ka nature ya wafadari hi sirf wajah nahi ho sakti shadi ko barkarar rakhne me?..
    And pregnancy is so unconvincing in mahjabeen n Abdullah case.. kaha to dono pe pyar hua hi nahi tha… achanak pregnancy… really not convinced at all..
