Well, the scene was similar to the Humsafar scene concept wise, but one would soon disregard that and be engrossed in the episode as many events took place after that scene. Do you feel the same?
Writer Saira Raza and director Qasim Ali Mureed explained the reason for Hala-Khurram relationship and its dynamics beautifully. It suddenly made so much more sense and turned Hala’s action from a silly ghalti to the desperate need of a lost girl.
It also resonated with lots of girls who fail to find a friend, a person who can comfort them within the family. Ironically Roomi is undergoing exactly the same experience. A note of appreciation for the writer for highlighting a very relevant issue faced by the youth today.
It was nice to see the turnaround in Khurram’s behaviour and how he delicately attempted to explain to Hala, the reasons behind his actions.
We are glad dadi was able to understand where Hala was coming from. We are happy about the balance of negative vs positive that is maintained within the script.
Hamza, We Feel For You But…
Hamza was heartbroken and we can totally understood that. He was shocked at multiple levels. Not only to discover that there was a relationship between Hala and Khurram, but also that Hala was dishonest with him. He must also be feeling sad that his love failed to give her the confidence that she could have trusted him. But should he not at least have given her a chance to explain herself? His anger about Hala’s dishonesty with him is justified but without hearing her out, is it fair to assume she is not happy with him?
Does Hala deserve a chance to explain things to Hamza, when she broke his trust on so many levels…?
Sadly, we always show our male characters to act unwisely… why didn’t Hamza think about how his mother tried to frame Hala? Why didn’t he realise that she already knew about Hala & Khurram’s past relationship and never bothered to tell anyone or stop Hala till Khurram showed up? Why would a mother want to hurt her own son? We expected better from Hamza here, (which is entirely separate from the fact that he is justified in his anger towards Hala for lying to him).
Last but not the last, we wish the drama had not employed a similar concept for the Hala-Khurram scene as the one we witnessed in Humsafar. There could have been so many other ways to let Hamza discover the truth – the most obvious one being through Shafaq…
But perhaps that might not have been as sensational as this one?
