Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi Episode 21 Recap

Mahek isn’t leaving Shamsher, that’s clear by now. Shamsher and Mahek lives at Shahmeer’s after leaving Nawab Dilawar’s house. However, Shamsher’s real life has only just begun. He has a lot of challenges ahead of him.

Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi Episode 22 Written Update & Review

Shamsher & Ahsan 

This episode begins with Shamsher-Ahsan facing each other. Ahsan lightheartedly teases Shamsher for being a changed man.

“Mere jaise lag rahe ho… Chup rehna bhi seekh liya hai…” 

And stuff like that. But, we can all see that Ahsan means well.

By the way, they do look similar, at least their jackets are almost the same, with slight difference in colour.

Ahsan & Neha

So, what is Ahsan doing at Akram’s place?

Well, he knows that Neha isn’t happy about his proposal. So, he’s there to talk to his future wife. Neha is miffed, upset, even blames everything on Mahek. She expresses her disappointment in front of Ahsan as well. However, Ahsan has a strong argument in his favour, one that is sure to win our heart, and hopefully Neha’s. 

“Tumhara faisla hi Mera faisla hoga,” Ahsan tells Neha.

Neha & Akram

After this little chat with Ahsan, Neha agrees to marry Ahsan. And yet, she is still sulking. Girl, this is too much. Her converation with Akram revolves around the same fact that she can’t say no. Sis, you either accept it or say no to it. Yeh munh latka ke rehne ka kya fayeda?

Ahsan & Andleeb

On the other hand, Andleeb isn’t happy with this proposal, either. Ahsan sits down to talk to his mother and explains why he’s marry Neha. It is the best possible option to save the embarassment and keep the two families together. 

“Neha aur main khush rahenge,” Ahsan promises Andleeb.

For once, Andleeb looks like she’s convinced. Or maybe she’s thinking, mera beta itna samajhdar kaise nikla? Haha.

Shamsher’s Family

We see Shamsher and Shahmeer looking for a house to rent. The landlord is quite rude and humiliating, but Shamsher controls his anger. I quite liked the little montage when the two bros cleaned up the house. Shahmeer sweeping the floor was simply the best scene of this episode.

Dara comes home to find his mother grieving. Mrs Dilawar is missing Shamsher and is worried about him. She remembers that Shamsher is habituated to luxuries, and he might not get the same in a rented house.

Back in his rented house, Shamsher reminiscing his time in his house, with her mother. How he had two new expensive phones at once, and how his room’s AC was never switched off. And, now, he’s living in a room without a fan (Mahek has taken the bedroom that has a fan).

Shamsher & Mahek

So, those expensive phones come to Shamsher’s rescue. He sells his phone worth 2.5 lakh for 30K only, as he doesn’t have the papers etc. This is so real, but his hurt is real, too. The rickshaw wala is sympathetic on the outside, but he is playing his cards, too. 

After grocery shopping, some goons snatch the bags from Shamsher. While Shamsher couldn’t stop it, he sure challenged one of the goons to shoot him. Typical Shamsher vibe in that scene.

As a result, he comes back with a cross on his forehead, haha. 

These are the challenges of a non-priviledged life, my boy.

Contrary to my expectations, Mahek is quite understanding of Shamsher. She makes tea for him, offers him to swap places to he can sleep under the fan, she talks nicely… I quite like how their relationship is shaping up.

Now, since Shamsher has realized how ruthless this world could be, he asks Shahmeer to find a job for him. Anything and everything to run the kitchen, you see. I suppose Nawab Dilawar wouldn’t let Shamsher work anywhere; he might use his influence to have Shamsher fired. 

Shit is getting real. Eagerly waiting for the next episode.
