Sabaat Episode 11 Story Review – Realistic

This latest episode of Sabaat showed some character development and laid down the foundations for the much-needed progress in the story which we all have been waiting for. Hasan and Anaya finally got married. The ceremonies and everyone’s reactions were covered convincingly. This entire episode had a realistic feel to it. Miraal’s madness continued, her father was manipulated into siding with her yet again but the best part of this episode was Hasan and Anaya’s sweet relationship. The romance and their mature personalities made their scenes a treat to watch. Usman Mukhtar will finally make an appearance next week therefore all those viewers who initially tuned into this drama for him must watch the upcoming episode!

The Wedding

I really enjoyed watching a traditional wedding on-screen with the joota chupai and doodh pilai perhaps because the weddings we watch in dramas nowadays are covered differently. This entire wedding had a real feel to it, from the preparations to the actual function, it looked like these were scenes from an actual wedding. Anaya’s father’s fears were in a subtle manner translated on screen. It was also good to see Hasan’s father going ahead with everything genuinely until Miraal set the room on fire! This step by Miraal was extreme but it made perfect sense. Someone like her would actually do whatever it took to take things in her control.

In the previous episode, the viewers were shown how Miraal was losing her grip. In this episode, we watched the aftermath of everything she had been feeling for weeks. First Hasan and then Ali, she was more desperate than ever to show everyone what she was capable of doing if things did not go as she planned.

Sabaat 2

Hasan handled the situation in a mature manner. His character growth is much more convincing and likable now. Miraal’s father seems is actually scared of her now and does not want to face her ‘wrath’. Every time her father makes such decisions to please her, he gives her more control. That is how he must have contributed to making her the monster she is. Hasan covered up intelligently and ultimately with his mother’s support whatever Miraal did had little impact on their relationship.

I absolutely loved Mawra Hocane’s performance tonight especially when she was left alone after everyone rushed to call the rescue services. Anaya has always been shown as a sensible young lady therefore the fact she was willing to be more flexible made perfect sense. Anaya and Hasan’s scenes in her house showed that all they needed was each other to be happy, no big ceremonies. Their relationship also shows how easy it is for someone to be happy if they choose to enjoy little things in life, like a conversation or an interaction with someone you love. Hasan was equally lovable when he decided to go to Anaya’s place with her family members instead of his own car. These small gestures added more meaning to their scenes.

Miraal’s Madness

Miraal’s madness continued in this episode as well. The preview of the next episode made it quite clear why she was shown going crazier than ever! On the one hand, we have characters like Hasan and Anaya who find happiness in everything, and on the other hand there is Miraal who is constantly finding reasons to hate people. She is full of hatred and is simply incapable of loving anyone at all. Her friend is turning out to be her biggest supporter and that is obviously the only reason that she is with her all the time!

Miraal’s meeting with Ali’s mother showed how difficult it was for her to let go and move on. She really needs professional help, I am waiting to find out how she ultimately ends up getting the helps she so desperately is in need of! When Miraal was headed towards Ali’s house her thoughts suggested that she saw herself as the ‘victim’! I hope Miraal’s character development in the upcoming episode is worth the wait since for now, Miraal’s character lacks the layers needed to make it more appealing.

Final Remarks

Tonight’s episode of Sabaat was entertaining overall. Anaya and Hasan make a cute on-screen couple. It was also good to see Hasan’s mother playing an active role within the family set up since for the longest time her character did not have screen presence. I am sure many of you are looking forward to the next episode because of obvious reasons ;) I just hope that Usman Mukhtar does not make an entry in the last scene!

  • It was nice episode of sabaat. Good thing is that mother of hero is playing important role now. Both hero and heroine were good and their chemistry was cute. Waiting for next episode as it is first time i will be seeing usman in any drama. Per jo addiction dushman e jaan sey ab hei woh kisi aur dramay sey nahin except kashf

    • Yes, it is good to see the mother in action for a change, she seems to be the wise one now among the other two loons LOL!!

      Yes airing more than 1 episode a week is always a great idea. DeJ is pretty interesting. I need to watch the latest episodes of Kashf, a different and appealing storyline. I am glad we are getting variety of interesting dramas to watch this season.

      I appreciate your feedback.

      • DEJ is amazing, Fatima, cant understand why its not promoted well, already teh actors are very underrated, they deserve much more appreciation.

        • Yes, sometimes dramas are not promoted until they get the attention they deserve. Tiger, I am sure once they realize that it is getting good viewership, they will start promoting it.

  • Realistic is the perfect title for this episode. In this lockdown situation these shadi scenes were like a reminder of the good old days. Who would’ve known this will happen. Anyhow Mawra looked pretty as a bride. You are right this onscreen couple is cute. I am liking sabaat, not the usual stuff something out of the box. It just needs to move on faster. Thank you for the excellent reviews.

    • You’re most welcome. Thank you for your encouraging words Natasha. Yes, she was looking really pretty and I loved her performance too. I agree the drama needs to pick up pace.

      Keep reading and commenting.

  • I liked today’s episode. Indeed the wedding and dawat following it were shot well. Not only her parents and 3 friends but some relative also made it to Hasan’s house made sense.
    When Hasan confronted Miraal, madness could be since in her eyes. And Sara decipted that part well.
    Since Aagan, Marwa has given really good performance.

    • Yes, it did make a lot of sense which made this episode enjoyable. I am finally intrigued and waiting to find out more. I agree with you Pakistani, Mawra performed well in Aangan too.

  • Perfect review!! Also the wedding part was so refreshing, like it was so good!!

    Honestly, a few years ago I couldnt have imagined Mawra bring such a great actor. Like remember her in Sammi?

    Btw will you review Zebaish? It started this Friday.

    • Thank you so much Sara. Yes, it was really refreshing, it was covered so well.

      Sara, I can only review two dramas therefore can’t review any more right now but thank you for the suggestion, I appreciate it.

  • the review was perfect, i like the way Miraal waited for them to come home before she set the bedroom on fire, i don’t understand why the bedroom looked so ordinary, when they are so rich,

  • Fatima I started watching this drama after reading your reviews. I found the storyline intriguing and of course Usman Mukhtar. I really hope he enters earlier on in the episode otherwise I won’t be a happy chappy lol. Thank you for these amazing reviews, the effort you put in is obvious from your writing. Keep writing.

    • Thank you so much Asma for reading the reviews and for having faith in them. I liked Usman Mukhtar in Ana, waiting to watch what he has to offer in this one. LOL @ happy chappy. You’re most welcome.

      Keep reading and commenting.

  • This episode was realistic for sure! Hassan and Anaya’s scenes were quite heart warming….even after the fire scene, Hasan covered it up quite nicely.

    Whenever Miraal’s father tries to be good, Miraal pulls him back to her with her extreme behaviour and he does so to please her! That shows why Miraal is the way she is, as her father has always let her have things the way she likes. Miraal needs serious help and her father needs to realize this. However, they show that her friend has realized this before her parents could. Somehow, her father lets her get away with everything. I wonder how and why Miraal would turn to Dr. Haris, will that be by chance or a deliberate attempt to get herself treated.

    Nani was missing in this episode and I’m glad to finally see Dr. Haris making an entry in the next episode. However, I think it will be the last scene and the closing scene for the next episode.

    • Sheetal I totally agree with you Miraal is a master manipulator and her father gets manipulated so easily. Same here, waiting to see how the meeting takes place and what is the result.

      I appreciate your feedback.

  • This latest episode of Sabaat showed a spoilt girl, Miraal, who on the wedding night sets the bride and groom, her brother’s, bedroom on fire. When confronted by her brother as to what she did, in front of the parents, she threatens to set the house on fire if the valima is held the next day. Surprisingly the parents do not scold or punish her for doing so but just sit there meekly listening to their crazy daughter’s threat. I wonder why the parent’s are so afraid for her and not behaving like parents. Why is she so pampered by them? What kind of a message is given to the viewers that it is alright to behave the way she did and they can do anything and get by it? The rich, spoilt children do such things to others they hate, but never to their own families.
    I would have thought that after Miraal’s threats to burn down the house, the parents would have scolded and beaten Miraal, locked her in a rubber room, or better still put her in mental asylum which she deserves, and not let her leave the house for her to cause more damage, like she threatened.
    At this point of the drama, it irritated me to the extent that i stopped watching the drama completely. I could not understand what the writer was trying to convey as such behaviour is not tolerated in any family whether rich or otherwise.

    • that is sooooo true….Miraal makes this drama unbearable to watch…..and hasan’s reaction to his sister setting his bed on fire was so stupid……like bruh SHE SET YOUR BED ON FIRE and all you do is ask her with a straight face: why did you do this?….I guess they are used to such psychotic behavior from her…..and the parents…..get up and slap some sense into your monster of a daughter

    • I think the message that is being given is how not to raise your child haha!! I think that is exactly what they are trying to show, upbringing makes a lot of difference. Many spoiled brats like Miraal have parents or friends who are enablers. Watch Dr. Phil, maybe you will understand Miraal’s character better. She is annoying, doesn’t have layers but there are plenty of such parents out there and people with these psychological conditions who need professional help which I hope she will get soon.

      • Your observation and knowledge impresses me Fatima. I was married to a Miraal, male version. His mother was what you call the enabler. When I read people commenting that such people don’t exist it hurts because when I used to share the tormenting details of my married life with my friends and family I got the same response that I exaggerate. People like Miraal should be treated and they should never be married. Thanks to Allah I am free of those 7 years of torture. Miraal’s character reminds me of him, it is tormenting. Sometimes people who are like Miraal don’t even know how sick they are. I hope this drama spreads awareness about mental health.

    • Thanks pal, I agree with your comments, totally. I’m surprised that no one else noticed. And the spineless lovey brother is also likely to face the music from his ‘strong character’ wife for lying to her, supporting the lie of his mother. And the father, have mercy on our intelligence!

  • hey fatima!! Great review :D but i have one question….Don’t you think all problems in this drama will be solved if someone kills miraal? :P

  • Hi Fatima mam
    Sabbat ka review to perfect
    Ap ne banday aik door say ka teaser and song daika mujay to ye bi just aik love triangle lag raha hai among ahsan, Ushna and hina altaf. As usual geo tv typical love triangles stories just for making trps
    Ranjha Ranjha kardi k baad faiza iftikhar aisa hi script lejaygu I can’t believe it

  • Wonderfully reviewed. Miraal needed more layers but even without them her character is that of someone who is suffering with a psychological disorder. Oh yea!! That wedding was so real and so beautiful. Hasan and Anaya are adorable.

  • Good review fatima, it was a nice episode and looking forward to the next one. I think Sarah Khan was excellent today, her body language was superb, she has just become the character. Rest all were good as usual.
