Plot Summary

The premise, or the video’s description gives away a lot. But yet, the execution is interesting and funny in most cases. The antics that Anaya pulls to irritate Zaviyar are hilarious.

So, the two estranged families reunite, and Junaid let’s it slip what dadi’s last wish was. The families are happy, but Anaya is not. She overacts as a very bold girl leaving Junaid and Naseema puzzled.

Anaya says and does everything that would surely tick off Zaviyar and family.

The conflict comes when Anaya thinks that Zaviyar broke his promise, even though it was both parents who set the date without bride and groom’s consent.

Anaya calls Munib and flirts with him only to irritate Zaviyar.  It works, Zaviyar gives up.

You win and I lose he says.

When both families find out about this mess, they aren’t very happy, but they are very understanding as a family.  They know that they shouldn’t pressurize the kids when they aren’t happy.

Anaya’s family knows but they also know nothing can be done.

But now Anaya is upset. Dada asks Anaya to talk to Zaviyar once and apologize. 

And things end on a happy note. 


I like some scenes like when Hina Bayat gently slaps madiha’s head. So cute! Moms do that and it’s so lovely!

“Ghar se bhagna koi mauroosi marz nahi hai,” Junaid says.


Anaya sends a very tacky outfit for Zaviyaar and he rocks that gaudy maroon salwar kameez thingy, all thanks to charming Affan.

I love all the tactics they both try to push off each other.

I like the telefilm, fun and light. Although, the resolution was half-baked, I felt.

Get this: Anaya goes to Zaviyar’s house and apologizes to her aunt and uncle. Zaviyar is already on the way to the airport. She chases him, apologizes to him, and that’s all.

We don’t know why Zaviyar forgives her so easily.

Isn’t that too quick?

Zaviyar was mad at Anaya like anything, and then suddenly all iz well?

Anywho, a fun watch!
