Plot Summary

The episode opens with the press conference where Qalb-e-Momin announces the wardrobe designer, and the lead pair.

Neha and Zoofi walk out and are surrounded by reporters. Zoofi is angry but Neha handles them well.

The scripting session begins as Momin is talking with Shelly, Akhtar, and Daud.

Doesn’t script come first?

Akhtar describes the opening scene and Momin hates it. Momin describes the scene that he wants, confirming to his definition of commercial cinema.

Akhtar informs that his character was a dancer based on Husn-e-Jahan. It irked Qalb-e-Momin, for reasons that we know but it confuses Akhtar and Shelly.

The scene shifts to past as Husn-e-Jahan talks to Qalb-e-Momin and sends him to live with Abdul Alaa. That conversation breaks your heart but a kid cannot understand those words, can he? All he wants is that his friends don’t refer to his mother as a bad woman.

Momina is having trouble as she cannot sleep and is constantly worried. She feels that she should have died instead of Jehangir. I know the feeling, when you feel so useless that you’d want to die; or you want to take the pain the your lives one is going through.

Sultan is also hopeless and without a will to live. We see how they are dealing with Jehangir’s loss.

A nice performance by Sajal and Saleem Mairaj.

Neha avenges by leaking Momin’s photographs on Facebook. However, when Momin contacts she, she denies it outright. I mean, what was he expecting? The two are really meant for each other. They are equally evil.

Momina meets Ibrahim and talks as though she’s the biggest dinner of the world. Why? Not just because Jehangir died, and her family is upset, and she has a lot of debt. Because she couldn’t get Faisal. Wow!

I would like to refer Shehr-e-Zaat here. Momina is no different than Falak. Her life revolves around appeasing and getting the man she loves.


I am drafting this on my phone and some sections need movement but the app messes up alignments etc. Please bear with me. And don’t forget to read my review of Deewar-e-Shab episode 22.
See you in next review.
