When the children and Waqar reject Nargis and do not treat her equally after the second marriage, new problems emerge.

Samjhota’s Unusual Tale Puts Into Perspective A Number Of Fascinating But Little-Discussed Topics:
1. Remarriage and the difficulties some people may face after being married at a later age in life and after spending years with someone they genuinely love is at the centre of Samjhota’s story.
2. The role of Nargis illustrates how challenging it may be to adjust to being both a mother of grown children and a mother-in-law. Both of the characters are superb examples of how a relationship that develops later in life may be.
3. The drama also emphasizes the effects of divorce on women’s lives, such as social alienation, emotional and psychological pain, financial problems, and difficulties getting remarried.
4. In our society, getting married after a particular age and remarrying after a divorce or widowhood are incredibly difficult for both men and women. Samjhota presents this much needed topic in a very interesting manner.
