Plot Summary

Nadir is struggling to find a job. His brother owns a vehicle and earns enough to earn the money.

Niggi is the elite class, class-conscious woman. She is trying to find a match for her Diya, a Ghar Damaad. Nayla takes her to Nadir’s house. Niggi is hesitant at first but somehow agrees to let Nadar and Gul Bano come and stay at her house. I like the role reversal as nadar moves in to Diya’s house before the wedding.

As the story progresses with comedy scenes, we find out that that Nadir is not Gul Jano’s real son. He’s son of late composer Nadeem Hasni and Gul Jano has raised him instead of focusing on her own son. Diya and Nayla meets Qadar on the road as her car breaks down.

Niggi and Kamal don’t get along well and Niggi insults him every scene. In one such confrontation, Kamal says this to Niggi.

جن لوگوں کا منہ چوبیس گھنٹے سڑا ہوا ہوتا ہے ان کا نصیب بھی سڑ جاتا ہے۔

Nayla doesn’t have any work, so she spends all the time with Diya. They go out for an outing, Things change as both couples switch their intended partners.

Niggi also changes her mind and they are finalizing the dates, they announce their decision.

Niggi and Kamal also resolve their differences.

Review

This telefilm introduced me to Asad Siddiqui. He is one actor who hasn’t changed much. I watched it back in 2016, by the way.

This telefilm attempts to tell us that the education and the riches aren’t the only things that make relationships work. We also see the being humble is a novel quality these days.  The issues between Kamal and Niggi also signifies the important of communication, no matter how old the relationship has been.

Performances

Asad sounds so well.

Gul e Rana plays Gul Jano a popular yesteryear singer of Punjabi films. She has two kids Nadae Asad Siddiqui and Qadar muneeb but. Nayla played by Janaan works at a beauty parlour, is friends with Diya and is quite modern for a parlour.

Muneeb Butt looks so cute when he speaks Punjabi. I didn’t like Hira in this one. Her acting didn’t seem as refined as she does now.

And, finally

Do watch to relax a bit and have a few laughs. Thanks for reading the review. Please leave comments below.
