As Pehli Si Mohabbat warms up & Rakshi & Aslam are about to zero in on the samaaj ki dewar – we ask, what next? Is this a Ghisi Piti Love story, or something more?
Aslam & Rakshi
Aslam finally takes a stand & Sheheryar Munawar wins as a young man frustrated & trying to break out of the chains of family pressure… Aslam bhai don’t give in, lagay reho.
Rakshi on the other hand, is totally testing our patience with her silly attitude towards her step mom, who clearly wants to protect her.
Nargis gives us a refreshing approach and breaks the stereotype that ‘all step moms are evil’ and are always up to mischief. So, a round of applause to the writer, Faiza Iftikhar for this refreshing perspective!
Points To Note
Expecting Aslam to become financially independent is a valid point on the part of Bushra’s family, though we wished Bushra had finished off the mangni on her own (knowing where Aslam’s heart lies).
On another point, does Aslam not feel the need to continue his adhoori education? He left halfway, & so consumed by ishq now he is, that he seems to have lost all track of reality. We clearly recall him begging Akram to let him stay and finish his parhai – and now, we wonder if THAT’S ever gonna happen?
Akram is the unmoving brick (or steel) wall that nobody goes past … Prem kahanian inpe aake khatam ho jatee hain. Will he ever let this one pass? Seems the drama will go through quite the climax before the troubled lovers see the light at the end of the tunnel – a very dark tunnel indeed!
What was Aslam even thinking, having watched Zainab’s story play out earlier?
Pehli Si Mohabbat has been criticized for being a ghissi pitti love story – yes, it might be that, but it’s more than that too – just look at the social issues under the spotlight, they too deserve a second glance – just like Rakshi!
