Okay, I stand corrected. In one scene, Affan mentions that it has been a few months since his father passed away. So, Meru’s iddat is over. Fine, fine, fine.
Affan isn’t happy with the way Mehrunnisa is acting these days. At the same time, he also asks to meet Sehr’s mother. Mehrunnisa, being a concerned mother, suggests that Affan should focus on his studies first. Durdana phupho intervenes, and promised Affan that she would meet Sehr’s mother.
I feel for Mehr. Everybody is against her, except Minal who’s neutral and supportive of her mother.
Mehr isn’t tame. She knows that Sehr doesn’t have good intentions at heart, but for Affan’s sake, she’s willing to meet Sehr’s family. That’s a good mother. All mothers sacrifice for their kids. I’m not sure if Mehr would continue to listen to Affan in future.
Mahir makes his parents Jehangir and Madiha to meet Narmeen’s mother. He has already stolen grandmother’s jewellery to give it to Narmeen.
While Madiha and Jehangir are trying to convince Narmeen’s mother for Mahir’s proposal; Aziza finds out about the theft. It is established that Mahir’s step-sister knows Narmeen’s sister Sharmeen. Bas, the duo arrives at Narmeen’s place.
Aziza comes just in time and creates a much-anticipated scene. Narmeen isn’t happy, her mother is pissed, and they are asked to leave. I know, a mother would never agree to give her daughter’s hand to a man who’s accused of stealing. She wasn’t convinced about Mahir in the first place.
Narmeen isn’t happy about the whole drama, and things are over between them. We all expected it to, because how else would Mehrunnisa marry Mahir. Technically, Mahir can marry four women at once, but I know this isn’t that kind of story.
And now, the much-awaited run-in
The two tracks converge in this episode. Mehrunnisa is out for her walk when she runs into Mahir. Mahir strikes open a conversation with Mehrunnisa. This is just the beginning. Mehrunnisa likes Mahir’s nature. He calls her young, shares her passion for tennis, suggests her to be a little selfish first.
This crossover was one episode too late. The first two episodes had established the two protagonists pretty well. I was expecting Mahir to meet Mehr in the third episode. Anywho… Der aaye, durust aaye… Let the love story begin.
