Kuch Ankahi latest episode review and Samiya’s future is on our minds!
On the one hand, we appreciate the poignant representation of a daughter’s emotions, sentiments and willingness to do anything for her mother, but at the same time we also question if this could validate girls’ ruining their lives because of their parents’ wrong decisions.
Those for whom Samiya is a winner
“Mein unka maan tor ker, unhee kay ghar mein nahin reh suktee”. A clap for all the daughters who accept all the decisions of their mothers or parents simply because maa ka dil rukhna , maa ka maan rehany dena is more important than anything else. And not because she doesn’t have a choice.
We appreciate the emotions, respect and hope in this situation rather than making it all about bitterness and toxicity. We do believe Samiya will have a journey to do the right thing.
Those who feel Samiya’s self-sacrificial spirit can be harmful
Are we saying that we should keep silent in the face of parents’ wrong decisions, decisions influenced by society’s double standards, even if it will ruin our life, even if it will make us bitter later on? Can examples like Samiya become a reference point for other girls to give up on their rights and settle for a life of unhappiness?
At the same time the drama calls out to all parents with the dialogue
”Unki nazar mein jo bhala hai woh ho sukta hai keh, tumharay haq mein behter na ho”
Winners Of The Show
Samiya and Phuppo were the clear winners in last night’s episode. We loved Samiya’s silent strength to go along with her mother’s decision for the sake of her happiness. Phuppo owns up to who she is, from love marriage to claiming her share in the property. Vaneeza Ahmed just makes you fall in love with the refreshingly bold, straightforward yet so loving phuppo’s character.
Aba was clearly disappointed when Phuppo didn’t bring a present for him, so he decided to leave the scene with a smart comment. What do you guys think?
Salman washing the dishes, Thanvi Sahib cooking … love the drama for showing this side of men and normalising it.
Appreciation for the entire team for the minority representation in the drama. It shows the following:
1: How minorities are a part of everyday life in Pakistan
2: The manner in which the three sisters interact with Meena was very relatable – that the average person in Pakistan treats them like one of his or her own. There is no discrimination or bias in behaviour towards them
3: The drama also highlights the challenges they face everyday.
It was so sad to see the mom leaving Deepak with the tailor. The drama also addresses child labour and child abuse in work places under the garb of training and hard work. We hope Samiya can put some sense into that child.
Lovable moments & messages from last night
Array yeh kiya huwa … Aliya managed to fix her car without Salman’s help! We are also surprised and shocked like Salmaan – woh garee kaisay theek ho gai? We were prepared to enjoy Salman’s winning moment but this round went to Aliya.
Appreciate the drama for beautifully employing a variety of background musical scores which added so much more to each scene; communicating the sadness, sometimes humour and sometimes, even the power balance between characters as in the case of Phuppo’s arrival.
We were pleasantly surprised to hear the Phuppo asking Samiya’s mother:
“Mein larki ki baat nahin kerehee, larkay mein kiya heeray hain, us mein kiya khaas baat hai?” We always focus on a girl’s age as the reason for getting her married but we forget, is this reason significant enough to get her married to any guy?
Thank you for shedding light on a different POV.
