Will they be able to cross the hurdles thrown their way by family or will they power through to come together as one? Watch Kaala Doriya to find out.

Drama Kaala Doriya Episode 7 Written Update and Review

Tanno sees Asfi and Mahnoor in the car, together. And, we all know what’s to come.

This episode begins as Asfi stops the car a little before their house so him and the two kids can walk home. As luck would have it, Muneer sees them together. Yeah, just what we needed. When Asfi and Mahnoor arrive at their respective homes, their respective parents give them a scolding of their life. Tanno is on her Punjabi best avatar and threatens to “godey gittey senk dungi” to Mahnoor. On the other hand, Muneer wants Asfi to change his subjects, and get a new car but never be seen with Mahnoor again. This is a golden opportunity for Asfi to get his own car. The whole scolding scene was done back and forth, so if Tanno asks something, we hear Asfi responding, and then Muneer’s question with Mahnoor’s retorts. I like this kinda writing, and Saima Akram Chaudhry is an expert in this.

Shuja is selling his car to make some money. Asfi learns this and wants to buy it. Nida doesn’t like that Asfi and Saleeqa are kinda sorta happy about Shuja’s current financial state. Asfi apologizes and all, but we can see Nida is hurting. These people just don’t think of other’s sentiments. Whether it is Tanno brutally refusing that Kukku will ever marry Bitto or Mahnoor hurraying on Muneer’s arrest or Saleeqa showing her contentment on Shuja’s financial problems, things are just too inconsiderate.

Ikhtiyar Ahmed and Tabassum Begum meet in the park, again. They discuss the childhood engagement of Asfi and Mahnoor and hope that if the two fall in love with each other, everything will be sorted, again. Foreshadowing, foreshadowing, foreshadowing…

We see Mahnoor and Asfi exchanging a few voice messages. So, dosti hone lagi hai. Asfi also buys a dress for Mahnoor when he knew she couldn’t afford it. Isn’t that sweet?

I’m guessing the love story will begin by episode 10 and then the rest of the drama will focus on bringing the two families together.

Nadia Afghan is terrific as Tanno but it’s Zainab Qayyum who surprises me. She plays Urdu speaking bickering mother generally. Her performance in a romcom is so refreshing.

Over n out.
