Sadaf’s sister Deeba is in the hospital and requires a blood donation from Fareed but he’s unreachable. We then learn that he’s been leeching money off of Sadaf to pay a friend who has promised to help him get to Australia. Sadaf is completely devastated by her brother’s betrayal when she finally learns he got expelled from university seven months ago and she’s been paying for his fees and other expenses this whole time. We knew Fareed and Mehak are beyond selfish, but Fareed hit a new low when he stole the money meant for Deeba’s operation and practically murdered his grandfather, who tried to stop him from doing so in the process.
Two major deaths in one episode! In one day, Sadaf loses her sister and her grandfather, and Fareed is pretty much responsible for both. First he wasn’t available when his sister needed blood and then he stole the money needed for her surgery because he couldn’t see past his own myopic desire to escape the difficulties of living in Pakistan and move to Australia. It’s clear that the motivation behind each character’s actions, good or bad, is the harshness of poverty, and this drama serial underlines how extreme circumstances can potentially distort one’s morality, ethics and humanity. However, I feel like most of the characters are too black-and-white, like Sadaf who never wavers in her principles and Mehak and Fareed, who are always inconsiderate and selfish. Their mother is the only character who seems genuinely conflicted, as she tries to balance and consider the best interests of all her children.
