Drama Review | Aye Musht-e-Khak | Episode 2

Alrighty, let’s review the second episode of Aye Musht-e-Khak. I wasn’t ready for this. I mean… I didn’t know that there will be two episodes.

A little recap of episode 1

Shakeela has given Mustajab’s proposal for Dua.

Aye Musht-e-Khak episode 2 written review and update

Dua’s family refuses the proposal. Bobby doesn’t take it well.

Sajjad tries to convince Dua to reconsider her decision. Dua doeskt want to go awya from her family.

“Electronic devices are like painkillers, temporary relief,” Dua says.

Loved the line.

Now Bobby is sulking, partying. Our boy has taken the refusal to heart. Shakeela knows her son well, and she asks Bobby a poignant question.

“Why are you holding on to the refusal?”

She is so on point.

“You should meet Dua again, Maybe Dua didn’t get to know you better in one meeting.”

Haw! Aise bol diya apne laadle ko?

Party for dayaan

Shakeela is full-on ashiq on Dua.

“I want the next family member to add peace to our family not bring torture,” Dua says.

And then comes Mustajab. Kya swag hai bhai ka… Kuch zyada hi… itna matakne ki bhi zaroorat nahin thhi.

Dua attends to him but he ignores her as if this will settle the score.  He is a bit childish in that sense… nice detailing of the character. Nimrah and Sajjad insist that Mustajab and Shakeela join them for dinner. The way Bobby looks at dua as if he is already smitten. But, to his surprise, Dua excuses herself.

Tch… Bobby doesn’t shy away from asks to meet Dua, alone. Dua’s family uncomfortably agrees. We all know why he wants to meet Dua – ask her for her reason to refuse the proposal.

“Miane aapko nahi aapke proposal ko mana kiya hai,” Dua calmly says.

Now, he’s hitting on her.

“I’m falling in love with you,” Mustajab says.


I love the story telling. The way each episode ends is the perfect of writing a serial. I have been trying to learn the art of serial writing. I think this drama will help me. This and elevator girl… What a novel.

Iffat Omer looks more like Bobby sister and not mother. I wonder why she was picked to play the mother. I don’t want to say this, but I am not impressed by Sana’s acting. Feroze does what he does best – be intense.

I like Imam Sahib character. I was wondering, what is his role in the story. I guess he will play a pivotal role in making Mustajab walk the path of righteousness. You know… Sirat-al-Mustaqeem…

Until next post, do check my books on Amazon.
