Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi Episode 5 Written Update & Review

Main yeh nikaah nahin kar sakta

So, with a sullen face, Ahsan tells Mahek that he can’t marry her because of Shamsher. 

Just look at Ahsan’s face. It is the face of a man who feels sorry and helpless that he can’t marry the girl he loves. Full marks to Hammad Shoaib for this scene.

For Mahek and her family, this is as devastating as could be, as shocking as could be.

The way the camera panned on everyone’s face, it reminded me of our Indian soaps. With loud music in the background the camera zooms in on every person thrice. This wasn’t loud or anything, it just reminded me.


Shamsher and his tall claims 

Later, Shamsher calls Mahek. I don’t understand why she picks his calls. She should just ignore him, no?

Oh, I remember, because he can come to her house and send his father to jail. 

Mahek is saying jali-kati batein to him as if this would help.

“What else do you want us to do? Do you want me to die?” Mahek asks.

“Mere hotey huye maut bhi tum tak nahin pahunch sakti,” Shamsher says.

Yeh yaad rakhna, exam mein aayega, jab Mahek mar jayegi.

Talking to Shamsher is useless

Dilawar tries to tell Shamsher that this girl (Shamsher reminds her name is Mahek) is playing hard to get. It is fun to see this father-son duo because neither of them are willing to back down. Finally, Dilawar gets up and walks away. There is no point in wasting time with this psycho. Talking to Shamsher is useless.

The Supreme Court order

Dilawar tells his wife to go to Mahek’s house to settle the matter with money. They haven’t realized how serious Shamsher is about Mahek.  

Farwa and her plan to be rid of Mahek

So, Farwa and Mrs Dilawar come to see Akram and family. Both women were reluctant to come here, but Farwa ha a purpose. She wants to take this opportunity to be rid of Mahek once and for all. Farwa humiliates Akram and Ambreen equally. She talks rubbish about them, accusses them of using their daughter to rise up in the social ladder.

This is about all the shit that Mahek can handle.

She comes to the living room, splashes water at Farwa, tears the cheque and asks them to leave.

So, so good!

Mahek’s reaction to Farwa and Mrs Dilawar was very controlled. She didn’t let her voice raise beyond a point, which I like. Shouting isn’t necessary to show that you are feeling emotional.

Another twist to the already convoluted story

Farwa gives this a twist when she tells the story to Shamsher. She blames everything on Mahek and her family, lies about being insulted by them.

“They called us names, so awful that I can’t even say it,” Farwa tells Shamsher.

Dara (or is it Tara?), Mr and Mrs Dilawar all nod along as Farwa lies through her teeth. Shamsher is mighty pissed right now that his family is insulted (Irony?), but how would he react when he finds the truth?



Since this was quite fast paced, I liked the episode. I’m talking about the pace, the execution and the performances. All are superb.

Talking of the performances, I am all praise for this team.

  • Dur-e-Fishan has surprised me. She has acted well in this episode. Her reaction to Farwa and Mrs Dilawar was very controlled. She didn’t let her voice raise beyond a point.
  • Ayesha Tur never fails in a negative, rich, spoilt brat role.
  • Shahood Alvi is terrific as usual.
  • Laila Wasti is charming as always.
  • And I love, love, love Danish’s walking shots. Maza aa gaya hai ekdum. Swag hai bande mein.
