Bakht & Meerab’s dhakka start love story has us! The drama airs twice a week now, and each time, we tell ourselves, they can’t top the last episode, you know what? They do!
Shehnai gave us some so relatable laugh out moments, we’re almost wishing we were part of the cast! Tell you what? Let’s do the next best thing and relive them here and now. With Covid taking over our lives – yet again – perhaps this is the break we need to take our minds off a bleak news feed! So let’s dive straight into it!
1. When Iffy Discloses Her Forwarding Error To Everyone
Well done there writer Radain Shah, we were not expecting such a simple twist in the plot! With all of Kafi bhai’s insidious scheming, we imagined Iffy to have been part of a greater plan, but this simple explanation made it all the more entertaining, especially Meerab’s expressions, who, for the first time, registered real and raw frustration at the disclosure!
2. When Ahsan Takes Kafee Bhai’s Fingerprints
How to get that phone and delete the image? The cousins conspire to get it off Kafi bhai, but the execution was gold! Could you not stop yourself from laughing out loud along with holding on tight to your post iftar chai ka cup (for fear you spill the tea in your enthusiasm)? Well done there team Shehnai!
3. Saima Contemplating a Sneaky Move, and Then Executing It – So Smooth That!
Yes, she did. Before delivering (and deleting) the precious image, Saima is hit by last minute brilliance. Let’s take our chances with this one, she takes the risk – Send Samreen the pic and use a last ditch effort to save the (happy)? union that is Bakht & Meerab
4. Meerab & Bakht Faceoff
After the affectionate, caring feels in the previous episode where Bakht felt for Meerab and Meerab felt for Bakht – here we go again as Meerab is now losing his patience. Post the image reveal to Samreen, we see a livid, seething Meerab drive off into the sunset with our heroine (not Samreen) to settle scores. But, that didn’t turn out quite right as Bakht hits back with full force, grabs the car keys and leaves Meerab stranded car-less, and, we might add, hope-less in moving any closer to a solution!
5. When Phoppo (Juvaria Abbasi’s character) Sleep Talks
Jawaani nikal gayee, armaan nahi nikle
And the cousins ki toli treat it like a normal occurrence – oh yes, she sleep talks often – this is so normal!
6. Phoppo Telling Off Kafi Bhai
Aapki bemaari – yeh jo aap doosron ko takleef dene ke liye bechain rehte hain …
Of course Saleem Meraj is hitting all the right notes with this role. We have a feeling he’s enjoying it, such is the lack of character in Kafi bhai, he is able to do and conspire anything he wants – no moral limits there! And he does it so connivingly that we anticipate his next fall, with equal sadistic pleasure! (laaton ke bhoot haathon se nahi marte – oops, where did that come from?
7. The Kitchen Gossip Exchange
A 5 minute scene gave so much disclosure with the final cut as Saiqa enters the frame and is apprised of Ahsan and Saima’s love interest in each other! We didn’t know whether to be impressed at the speed of lightening with which desi family gossip reaches (un)intended ears or once again, Juvaria Abbasi’s dramatic exit from the scene.
Did you miss any of the 7 laugh out moments above? If yes, do go back and check them out, the episode is definitely worth a re-watch! And, we have to hand this one to Juvaria Abbasi as the queen of comic. Although the entire cast pulled through adding wit and comic moments, this one was hers to take home!
Shazia likes to pen her thoughts when she feels passionately about a life experience, a person or an event. She is mother to 3 lively boys and along with her husband, attempts to settle in her new country by taking German lessons so she is able to soak in the culture, language and spirit of the region.
“Wake up in the morning, take a deep breath and exhale! Keep on living with a passion that inspires others! “
