Faris Chawla (Sami Khan) picks up Dariya (Mansha Pasha) from the airport. He receives a call from his uncle Siraj (Rehan Sheikh), who informs him that Maya (Ayeza Khan) has left. Faris is upset but also flirts a bit with Dariya, disclosing that he and Maya are getting a divorce.
Maya’s parents aren’t happy with her decision either.
Dariya asks about the background of Maya’s story, but Faris is upset to the point of being a masochist. We learn that Maya only married Faris to avenge Saif and now she wants to go back to him.
Faris is a very sensitive person. Dariya knows and understands him well, being his University fellow, a friend, and Siraj’s friend’s daughter.
For more, you’ll have to watch the drama. It sounds like a good mix of romance, revenge, regret and heartache.
That’s what I thought after watching the first episode. Cut to last episode, it gets overwhelming, annoyingly twisted, complex and bizarre. Spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.
The complex love polygon (It is certainly not a triangle)

Saif is paid by Abro, as Abro wants his beloved daughter Muzna to marry Faris.
Tipu is Muzna’s brother.
To give credit when it’s due, I like how the language switches from Urdu to English and back. I loved the costumes. The cast is hand-picked and does a fabulous job of becoming the characters they are playing.
I have seen all of these actors perform before but Zahid Ahmed was a treat to watch in a negative-ish role. Let me confess that I am a big fan, by the way, starting from his portrayal of Haider in Besharam.
I should note here that Sami Khan’s acting chops have started to impress me – from the lost and confused Zayeem in Tootey Huwey Per, to Zaid in Woh Mera Dil Thha, to now Faris; he has improved. Kudos!And, Imran Ashraf, oh, the man never stops to surprise you.
I was not impressed. But if you like bizarre twists and turns, go for it.
