Time to review the latest episode of Ishqiya – episode 16 that aired on May 18, 2020.

Check out the Cast and Characters before you read the review. It won’t make much sense otherwise. And, you can read previous episodes’ reviews here.



Now that Hamna knows about the “surprise”, Hamza continues to torture her. He asks her out for dinner. She listens to him, for reasons nobody understands. Azeem doesn’t know about this rendezvous and Hamna’s mother-in-law also does some chughli. Now, worried Azeem is trying to call her. Hamza’s next order is to tell him where she is and she is clueless as usual. Bahen, Azeem aur Rumi ko bol ke chutti kar na!

Azeem is suspicious about Hamna now because she had told a bucketful of lies.

Rumi, the ever so thoughtful Rumi is still worried about Siddiqui Sahab’s health. I like her character even though Hania’s portrayal makes her a bit childish and annoying.

She cooks special dinner for Hamza and refuses to let anyone eat until he comes back. What is Alishba doing there? Don’t ask. This drama has many unanswered questions.

Hamza’s game is very strong. He is torturing Hamna and flirting with Rumi. Nothing wrong, she’s his wife but… Bhai, leave Hamna alone.

Hamna’s permanent expression is so boring. Anyone?

When Hamza asks her out…

When she’s talking to Hamza…

When she’s lying to Azeem…

When Azeem takes all the blame…

When she meets Kiran…

Even Azeem has copied her expressions.


تربوز کو دیکھ کر خربوزہ رنگ پکڑتا ہے، یا الٹا ہے، کچھ تو ایسی کہاوت ہے نا؟

Azeem, I mean Gauhar Rasheed appears in only a couple of scene but he is so effing good.

Bored, I don’t want to watch this drama.

Enough said. See you in next review.
