Pyari Mona Episode 5  Written Update and Review 

Ayan is mad at Mona for leaving without seeing her and saying goodbye. Khalid is such a cool father and such a cool grandfather.

Samia is ready to go and see a therapist. Despite her resolve, Babar doesn’t let her. 

Later, Samia and Babar talk. It is evident that Babar married Samia for her beauty and her family background. I think the drama also hints that Babar “uses” Samia for his business deals. 

Samia is clearly depressed. But nobody understands her. Neither Babar not Shaista.

Irfan’s mother kinda forces Irfan to see Hira and take her for dinner. 

At dinner, Hira tells Irfan that she’s compromising by agreeing to marry him. She also talks rubhish about Mona, perfectly being the example of “a woman is the worst enemy of a woman”. 

At the restaurant, Mona has also come with Yawar. Seeing them together is the tipping point for Ifran.

Irfan comes to Mona’s house late night and confesses that he loves her, more than as a friend. He is so understanding that he doesn’t even pressurize Mona to give an answer. The way Mona shut the door and Irfan stood on the other side, it reminded me of the most famous Rachel and Ross scene from FRIENDS.

Irfan’s mother isn’t happy about this. But Irfan seems quite confident about his decision. 

Later, Mona brings Yawar to meet Irfan. They play a skit of sorts to show that they have been engaged the day before. They are so bad at playing the skit that Ifran knows they are lying. 

Irfan convinces Mona that they will make a good couple. Will Mona agree? We will know soon.

And that’s the episode.



This episode was so funny, the Lahore bits were so hilarious. Samia is depressed her and so is her track. But that wouldn’t deter me from watching it.
