Laapata is a new HUM TV drama starring Ayeza Khan, Sarah Khan, Ali Rehman Khan, Gohar Rasheed. Written and directed by Khizer Idrees, this dram ais produced by Momina Duraid Productions.
When I heard about this drama, I had no plans to watch it, because I don’t want an overdoze of Ayeza Khan. But, I like Sarah Khan and Ali Rehman just as much. So, here goes.
We’ve met the cast and the characters. Now, let’s take a walk.
Laapta Episode 1 written update
In this episode, we meet all the characters and learn about their relationship and the dynamics of their turbulent relationship. This drama had me so hooked from the get go that I forgot to take notes.
Gaiti has an affair with Shahid, and plans to elope but Shahid ditches her at the last moment. She isn’t brokenhearted, if that’s what you think of her. Gaiti always has a thing for her cousin Shams, but Shams like Falak, and Falak likes him back. We also learn that Shams is a good-for-nothing guy who doesn’t do anything except being Majnoon after Falak.
Enters Gaiti, who threatens to blackmail them.
So, Ayeza isn’t the naive and tame girl as she was in Chupke Chupke.

I like how Ayeza knocks at Shahid’s door. So superfluous! It adds a nuance to the scene. I also like that gaiti isn’t always made-up. It would have been an over
Ali and Sara’s chemistry sizzles in the terrace scene.
Let’s part with a solid line from Falak:
Iss muashre mein aurat ko sab se zyada bay purdah mard ki nazrein karti hain.
In this society it’s the men’s ogling that puts a woman out of her purda.
Alright, off to review the second episode.
