I thoroughly enjoyed this week’s episode as it was full of surprises that were least expected. Aaliyan is slowly realizing the gravity of the situation, and that it is not as easy as he thinks!
Natasha created havoc after hearing the news of his marriage, and the situation got worse when Qudsiya entered the picture. Aaliyan was already trying really hard to convince Natasha that the marriage was a sham, but Qudsiya’s pleaded him to not give her divorce and this made Natasha angrier, and Aaliyan was left in a difficult situation. It is about time he realized that Nikkah was not some casual matter and it has to be taken seriously at any cost!
I always had the feeling from the start that Qudsiya would find any ally in Dudi, and this is exactly what happened. Dudi is the only one who thinks that Qudsiya is not after money and wants to stay at their house because she is in Aaliyan’s Nikkah, which is a justified demand. She patiently heard her side of the story, and also made it clear that the real daughter-in-law of the house would only be Natasha because their family matches up to their status. She wanted to make everything crystal clear to Qudsiya about this situation, and she understood Qudsiya’s problems too. I hope Dudi sides with her in the future because she is in for a rough time ahead!
Mehmood’s reaction to the whole situation was completely justified. No father would continue the engagement in such a situation even though he was given the surity that the marriage would not last long. Mehmood seems like a very practical man because after what Aaliyan did to his daughter he should have broken ties with the family. Sultan’s lie also got revealed when Qudsiya came in front of Mehmood; she made her position clear that she does not want divorce because of her father’s deteriorating condition, and I was shocked to see Mehmood showing kindness to Qudsiya instead of being hostile towards her. I wish Natasha had also inherited some of Mehmood’s traits; she is such an immature person!
The highlight of the episode for me was Aaliyan and Qudsiya’s first fight. I am glad that Qudsiya spoke up for herself instead of pleading and crying in front of Aaliyan. After hearing Aaliyan’s rant on ‘my personal life is getting disturbed’, ‘I went against my family to help you’ Qudsiya got angry and gave him a reality check.
‘Mujhe Nahi Pata Apko Is Neki Ka Mashwara Kis Ne Diya Tha’
Aaliyan was totally shocked to see Qudsiya angry and his ‘bas bas kitna bolti hai ap’ dialogue made me laugh out loud! The scene was power packed and Sajjal completely nailed it. It is just surprising to see Sajjal’s versatility in such a short span of time. Actor takes decade to show the kind of versatility she has shown in the matter of 2 to 3 years. She has done unique roles in shows like Sannata, Nanhi and the telefilm Behaad which I had thoroughly enjoyed! I wish I could say the same about Sheheryar; his dialogue delivery did not impress me in this scene and his expressions were also overdone in my view.
Another surprising discovery was that Sultan’s current wife is not Aaliyan’s real mother. In her discussion with Sultan about the current Nikkah situation, she told him ‘uski ziada tar aadatein apni maa per gaee hai’. I am sure we will get to know more about the past in the upcoming episodes. I am also looking forward to Emaad Irfani’s entry. I am curious to know what role he will be playing in the show.
Really looking forward to the next installment!
