Plot Summary

Momina’s Track

Faisal offers to bear Momina’s parents’ expenses but he doesn’t want Momina to work. One thing leads to other, and the argument grows quite bitter in no time.

Momina makes her mind and goes for the shoot without informing Faisal. She leaves him a letter though.

Suraiyya talks to Momina, only about Faisal.

Renuka offers Momina to be her manager to make her a global star. She also has a Broadway show offer for Momina.

Qalb-e-Momin’s Track

Momin asks for a press conference to announce his most ambitious, big budget movie about spirituality. Forget the media, even Shelly and Abbas, his leads are unsure of the movie.

They all question his judgement. The actors aren’t happy, the dress designer isn’t keen, and the financers are backing out. Tina and Daud try to suggest that they should continue to work on “Sanam”.

Bad news arrives from left, right and centre. Qalb-e-Momin is still firm on his decision.

Momin sees the news about Momina. Although Daud tells him the details of her movie, Qalb-e-Momin is snobbish. History!

The scripting begins and the writers come up with lame ideas. Qalb-e-Momin fails to explain his motive properly so he ends up being irritated and annoyed, with himself and others.

Completely clueless, Qalb-e-Momin receives his letterbox from Abdul Alaa. Great, now it will become the inspiration for his movie’s script. And, hopefully Taha’s track will begin now.


Hamza looks SO GOOD, the best he has ever looked. It is a shame he left after this. But, good for him.

I have also posted my reviews for two other Saturday shows – Mere Paas Tum Ho episode 16 & Deewar-e-Shab episode 25. Check ’em out.

See you in next review.
