Ohkay so, as clichéd as it may sound but I hated chemistry as a subject but this chemistry is something else & surprise surprise I love it, well I am sure everyone else does too. It is such a relief that after weeks of being stagnant & slow, Yakeen Ka Safar has picked up the momentum & even though there are a few happenings in every other episode, the way they are conveyed compensate for all those slow episodes. It is commendable how the writer has maintained a balance between professional & personal lives of the characters & it shows how being in such a profession, it affects them on a personal level too. Yakeen Ka Safar has all of a sudden become a treat to watch & it is amazing!
So, Faryal came back with an ulterior motive, even though it was good that she learnt how to apologize, she realized her mistakes, she learnt how to say sorry but it is heart-wrenching that in all these years, one thing she couldn’t learn was acting. Seriously, all the scenes of the girl playing the role of Faryal despite being serious were amusing to me because I couldn’t divert my mind off how bad bad bad her acting was, whether she was crying, or pleading or looking at Asfand with some hope in her eyes, this girl really shouldn’t try her hands on acting & should give the characters offered to her in the future to someone else because I am sure they would do a better job than her or simply put, they’d be able to act at least!
I loved loved loved each & every scene of Asfand & Zubiya & I loved that there was so much focus on them & their feelings throughout this episode. Just because Zubiya lost her patient, Asfand knew that it was taking a toll on her & obviously he wouldn’t have shown support to someone else but because it was Zubiya he went out of the way to make her feel at ease because he could see that she was suffering. Asfand has obviously fallen for Zubiya & despite seeing how she keeps herself distant, Asfand continues to throw hints every now & then to let her know that he is thinking about her, that he is seriously considering her as his life partner.
Zubiya not only understands what Asfand says, she also feels the same way about him but just because she has had a bad experience in the past, she now walks on the eggshells, that is the reason why she reminded herself of her mother’s advice & immediately grew cold towards Asfand. I love how Zubiya never responds to Asfand with straight forward answers, like she always says something which he never expects. Throughout this episode I loved how short & sweet the dialogues were but still the characters were running high on emotions & the chemistry was oozing out of the TV screen.
Since Asfand finally got a chance to tell Faryal that he has changed & he has moved on & since he got rid of the burden that may be he was carrying in his heart, he got a clear vision & a chance to take some steps towards Zubiya. All those glances, all those smiles, every single expression that Asfand had while looking at Zubiya was beyond perfect & what I loved was how even Zubiya was taking note of everything but continued to ignore him as she was still unsure!
