I have said this before and I say this again–this drama is so well written. The dialogues are so poetic at times that I want to jot down all of them.
“Main tumhari tarah ayyash aurat nahin hoon,” Zargoona says. “Jawan beti ke saamne maa ka mazaq udate tumhein zara haya nahin aayi?”
“Badi behen ko ayyash kehte tumein tumhein haya nahin aayi?” Zarsanga says.
Zargoona is too adamant and rude, or so it seems. It seems that her whole purpose to get Zarsanga to her home was to insult her. And despite the insult thrown at her, Zarsanga handles her well. This whole drama is about people who are well-versed in turki-ba-turki. Be it Zargoona and Zarsanga or Hilmand and Marjaan; the wordplay doesn’t stop.
I also loved Hilmand’s monologue about shikast aur fateh.
“Kaun jeetega?” Gulmeena asks.
“Wahi jis ki zidd bari hogi,” Mastan Singh says.
“Aansu jangli bhains ki tarah hote hain, khud bakhud nikal aate hain,” Marjaan says.
“Jis tarah ek myan mein do talwar nahin ho sakte, waise ek ghar mein do ainak nahin ho sakte,” Gulmeena says.
This episode reveals a little bit about everyone-that Hilmand is Marjaan’s stepson, that Zarsanga was earlier married to someone named Nasrullah, that Marjaan is Zarsanga’s second husband, that Hilmand spends his day at his father’s grave talking to himself, and that Nasrullah Khan was killed.
We see a little bit of Sheherzaad as she is interviewing peopele about ghaq. Someone has directed her to Laspiran. Would she run into Hilmand in next episode.
It’s time to speculate a little bit.
- Mastan Singh is repenting something, and he might like Zargoona.
- Guru Baksh knows something about Hilmand’s father’s death.
- Hilmand hates Marjaan for killing Nasrullah.
Zaviyar Noman Ejaz acts well in that scene when Hikmat confronts Zarsanga. I mention him especially, because he is new. Others are veterans – from Omair Rana to Hassan Noman to Noman Ejaz, from Samia Mumtaz to Sania Saeed, they are all so established in their craft. We can’t even see expect them to falter.
Hania has also acted well, especially when you compare her performance to that of Haala in Mere Humsafar.
Aur rahi baat Atif ki, to he is holding his ground with these veterans. I think the drama should credit two characters to Atif-Hilmand, and Hilmand’s voice!
Speaking of his magical voice, did anyone watch Sajan Das Na featuring Atif Aslam and Momina Mustehsan? I think it’s high time Momina makes her acting debut. Daniyal Zafar, Asim Azhar, Omair Jaswal, Ozair Jaswal, all have done their acting bits.
