Badshah Begum Episode 10 Written Update and Review
Qaisar sows the first seed of doubt
So, in the previous episode, Qaisar comes to meet Shah Alam and Shah Mir. Knowing Qaisar, we all know his unannounced and unwelcomed visit has a purpose. And it has. Just before leaving, he casually remarks that this isn’t the season for snakes to be out and about. He also prays for Jahan Ara’s speedy recovery. This subtle hint is enough to sow a seed of doubt in
Shahzeb and his “behen”
Since Shahzeb is the one who brought Jahan Ara to the hospital, he is anxiously, and rather rudely if I might add, asking the doctors to do something for “meri behen”. I liked how concerned he was. He might have had his differences with Shah Alam and his three kids, but for now, he is only thinking like an older brother. I liked this scene. Needless to say, I ogled at Farhan all this while. Banda kamaal hai!
Bakhtiar runs away
Bakhtiar gets a chance to untie himself and run away, so he does, only to be chased by Shahzeb’s men. The chase is long and tiring, from daylight until the night sets. And, then he is captured again.
My immediate question was: itni bhag daur ka kya fayeda?
Anywho! At least he tried. Our hero has guts.
Roshan Ara’s dilemma: To BB or not to BB
Clever, isn’t it?
So, Roshan Ara is befuddled with the new forced duties of being a Badshah Begum. She has always been ignored, and this is the first time she is getting attention. Let’s all be honest: we all seek attention, and Roshan Ara is no different. Now that she is getting attention, she still doesn’t seem happy. Hakim Bi tells her that being Badshah Begum isn’t temporary.
“Badshah Begum banne ki tayari kar lo, Roshan Ara. Jahan Ara nahin bachegi.”
We also see Rohan Ara praying self-admittedly the first time since her mother passed away.
Was she crying? Was she praying for Jahan Ara’s life or death? Does she want to be the next Badshah Begum instead of Jahan Ara? Whether she was crying because of happiness or sadness, that remains to be seen. My analysis says that she was praying for her sister’s life. I could be wrong, but we will know in next episode.
After Jahan Ara regains conciousness, Shahzeb talks to her. And the conversation subtly hints that Shahzeb knew the snake was released on purpose. He even praises Jahan Ara to be the perfect choice for Badshah Begum.
“I don’t have any objections on you being Badshah Begum, and I have also let go of Bakhtiar, but only as long as he keeps away from Piranpur,” Shahzeb says.
