Mein Episode 4 Written Review
Assalamualaikum dear followers,
It’s Shabana Mukhtar back with the recap and review of the latest episode of Mein.
The Sibling Rivalry
Sibling rivalry alert!
I was right. Rehan (Rayan) isn’t very sincere with Mubashshara because Jaafar never thinks of anything except Mubashshara. He even thinks that his mother should have taken him with her. Tch, a lot of angst buried there.
Rayan provokes Mubashshara every chance he gets and calls it therapy. He’s the most interesting character of this lot. Ayera is annoying and (pretend) coy, Mubashshara is just extreme and Kashmala is silly. Hina is scared of life, and Asif and Jaafar are just worried father’s. Rayan has layers and I can’t wait to see when these layers peel off.
Zaid’s father Asif sends Zaid to get some papers signed by Jaafar. Mubashshara meets Zaid and thanks him for the support.
Zaid: I came to save you from the bloggers because your father asked me to, and I would have saved any woman in that situation.
Just the way he says those words, it screams-I’m not interested. Even though Mubashshara was only thanking him, he was like: nah, not a chance.
Now, let’s talk about Jaafar and his grand plans to turn Muhib’s life into a rollercoaster ride. The guy seems to have some twisted enjoyment in playing puppet master. He’s been throwing curveballs at Muhib left and right, from the police station drama to sending legal notices, and even threatening to yank Muhib’s job out from under him. The poor guy’s patience is being tested, and it’s causing a ripple effect of emotional turmoil in his house. Muhib’s trying to maintain his cool exterior, but between you and me, I think Hina might just crack under the pressure. Could this be the breaking point that leads to her leaving Muhib? We’ll have to wait and watch.
Ayera and Zaid
Ayera spends the whole day with Zaid and then comes home to waiting and anxious family. Bhabhi isn’t too thrilled that she had to excuse from another family who wanted to come and see Ayera. Why couldn’t Ayera call and tell her? Her bhabhi has a fair question. Can I just say how much I hate Ayera? All she does is roam around with Zaid knowing her brother would always be supportive of her.
Khairunnisa assistant brand manager, talkative, wants to get married asap 26 years old but pretend to be 19 years old. Then she mistakes Zaid for Ayera ‘s brother. Long story short, Khairunnisa knows that Ayera has a boyfriend. Also, she kinda forced Zaid to take her out for lunch. Seems like a gold digger to me, something she denies to be.
Kashmala’s Outing with Rayan
KaKashmala comes home and talks to Zaid. One thing leads to another and…
Kashmala: why do you hate Rayan?
Zaid: Do you like him? If you do, please tell us.
Zaid is smart, then, I assume. From one sentence and a look at his sister’s face, he just knew ki daal mein kuch kaala hai.
The Mess at Muhib’s House
Mubashshara comes to see Muhib the moment her iddat is over. She threatens to avenge, insult and destroy Muhib. I love how Muhib held his own and proved how Hina is superior over Mubashshara.
Mubashshara: Self-respect ke liye “main” ahem hoti hai. Ab yeh meri “main” aur tumhare “hum” ke beech mein hai. Dekhte hain kaun jeetta hai.
Rayan and Mubashshara’s ongoing feud is like adding a dash of hot sauce to an already spicy drama. Rayan’s got a chip on his shoulder the size of a mountain, and it’s all because he felt neglected due to his sister’s spotlight hogging. Now, he’s on a mission to even the score, and it’s making their interactions juicier than a ripe mango. The layers to this subplot are unfolding beautifully, and it’s becoming one of the best dynamics in the show.
Now, can we take a moment to appreciate Ayeza Khan’s absolute mastery over her character? Seriously, her acting is a full-course meal for our drama-hungry souls. From the styling to the wardrobe choices, she’s slipped so effortlessly into the skin of this character that it’s a little eerie. And those venomous expressions? Man, she’s serving them up like a five-star chef. I’m in awe of how she’s breathed life into her role, and honestly, she deserves a standing ovation.
The way she captures the complexity of her character’s emotions, balancing vulnerability with strength, is nothing short of remarkable. Hina’s journey from a happy-go-lucky soul to someone caught in the crossfire of life’s chaos is being portrayed with such authenticity that it hits you right in the feels.
So, in a nutshell, if there’s one thing you need to do this week, it’s to catch up on “Mein.” Ayeza Khan’s acting prowess alone makes it a must-watch. And with the way the story’s unfolding, you’re in for a ride that’s equal parts heart-wrenching and exhilarating.
