Aakhir Kab Tak defies the norms we have grown up believing to be the standards we uphold as sacred, but is it not time we change them?
The ever sacrificing mom who takes on doormat status as she caters to her husband & in-law’s every whim. The submissive daughter who thinks of her parents’ izzat before all else, the husband who expects his newly-wed wife to fit in as the woman of his dreams, the police officer who is either totally corrupt or totally honest, but why not both?
Every character in Aakhir Kab Tak, from Juvaria Abbasi who experienced an awakening, to Saim who is super supportive to a socially nervous wife, to Noor who turns around her father’s failing business, to Inspector Nasir who is making us fall in love with dodgy police officers, we have a winner.
But why are these characters so relatable? Why don’t we say, Noor is too good to be true, or Saim is unreal. Why are we celebrating Fajar’s subtle yet noticeable wins in being able to express herself better?
It is perhaps because the drama has its pulse on the youth of the nation.
We are so done with doormat wives that we rejoice when Juvaria’s character celebrates her womanhood, finally. We feel relieved when Fajar finds a voice in Saim – a non-toxic male character who seeks to just be human & a friend before he’s a husband. Isn’t that what
Oh and what of Inspector Nasir – thank you for adding the comic relief to an intensely sensitive script.
Despite our better judgement, we are applauding your ability to take the villains to task – your day of reckoning will come, and we suspect Noor will have something to do with it, but for now, we sit back and enjoy the many shades of a police officer who is pulling off some seriously magnetic vibes!
Is AKT then, breaking stereotypes? You bet it is! And we’re here for it!
Onwards with the review
Aakhir Kab Tak ney to kul sixer per sixer lugaya hai.
Our heart was beating fast & we were screaming inside… oh no no! When Bisam entered the room & locked it, but then boom … it is Safia not Fajjer & we are singing “Muza aa gaya kasam sey”.
Both Noor & Inspector Nasir bring a smile to our face. Inspector Nasir, dabang style mein, Bisam aur chacha ko muza chukha rehay hain & we are not complaining.
Safia jee, we are as excited & happily surprised as Noor to catch you in this new roop. Bisaam ki to haalat kharaab.
We can go on and on…
