Deewar-e-Shab | Episode 40 | A Predictable Finale

Welcome to TOMU ‘The Other Me Unfolded’. Let’s review last episode of Deewar-e-Shab, episode 40.

Oh, and you can read the review of previous episodes here.

The final episode opens on a good note – Zartaj shoots Nabeel.

Joya is hospitilized. Izhar has finally realized his mistakes. Shakera hams through the hospital scene.

The next scene shows a showdown between Dildar and Nageena. Look at her smile when Sitara asks Dildar to leave.

And, finally Shaista Begum admits that she was wrong.

Khayyam is now living with Yousuf, and he is still bitter AF. Itna sarcasm kyu bhai? Now, that it is the last episode, Yousuf conveniently suggests to being Rabia as his daughter-in-law. Islam later tells Khayyam to meet Sitara Jahan and seek her forgiveness. Bushra Ansari and Shehroz Sabzwari overact in that scene. Did anyone else feel that?

Almas leaves with one of her many aashiqs.

The best scene, however, is Izhar and family’s final confrontation. Gul’s husband is going out with another girl. Shakera first slaps her for talking shit about Joya, then Akbar slaps her and gives her divorce papers.


This was one good looking cast. From Osama Tahir to Shehroz Sabzwari to Shahzad Shaikh; and from Sara Khan to Rabia and Joya, gorgeous people.

Sara Khan looks very pretty and her acting chops are okay for the role.

Kamran, Nausheen Shah and Shahzad Shaikh impressed me. Rest were okay and did justice to their roles.

The best performer was Saleem Mairaj. Faiq Ahmed comes to a close second in his portrayal of Salman.

I didn’t like the inconsistency. Kabhi dupatta sar pe, kabhi shanoN par.
