Finally, we have a female lead who is saying exactly what we want to hear – Noor you are killing it in Aakhir Kab Tak!
It is not often that we get to watch a Pakistani drama heroine say and act exactly the way we want her to. But from the get go, Noor has been telling us how it’s done…and done right!
Noor Is Giving us Goals!
From standing up for her sister, to her haalaat say maari huwi mom, to her arrogant (and very obnoxious) cousin Bisam, to professor Zafar, and now – handling the family business with great courage – Noor is the embodiment of all that girls aspire to. The praiseworthy character trait in her personality that stands out is not just the gumption to take a stand, but also to do so with a sprinkling of respect for her elders.
The latest episode gave us a super treat as Noor struggled to cope with the truck theft. Ushna Shah is nailing the character for sure. Her nervous anxiety, bold clap back to the police inspector (ahem, yes, Adeel Hussain aka Inspector Nasir has entered the frame) and ability to take charge when the going gets tough are giving serious career goals to young girls.
A shout out to the writer director team of Radain Shah & Syed Ali Raza Osama for writing a sensitive script & depicting it, keeping in mind, the finer details so that we are treated to a production that is raising the bar already and it’s only the 11th Episode!
It is true that we wait every Sunday to anticipate the relationship progress & cute interaction between Fajar & Saim. Their story is definitely winning our heart. Good to see the return of Adeel Hussain after sometime in a different & intriguing role from his previous work.
Noor is a tower of strength, determination & breath of fresh air amidst the typical rotay female characters that plague Pakistani dramas. We loved that she was honest with her father & told him about the power of attorney.
Finally, we see a slight change in the mother’s behavior. We hope she begins to support Noor.
Although Fajar going for therapy was mentioned, we do hope it will be shown in more detail in order to normalize therapy & encourage others to consult when in need.
Some food for thought: Is it true that parents also start valuing (& respecting) more, the child who helps financially support the family?
