What a fantastic way to end a loved drama! Ehd e Wafa’s last episode managed to hit all the right notes with us and tied up all the loose ends in one go. It was bittersweet to watch the way Saad’s story ends, because in the end Saad was the main character that we all rooted for throughout the drama. However, the other three leads also got their own happy endings in a way with resolve and some sort of closure. Overall, not a bad way at all to end a drama that introduced us to some really fun, multifaceted characters that stood in their own right.

It can’t be said enough: Ahad Raza Mir was the frontrunner that made Ehd e Wafa so exciting to watch. The young actor truly has proven himself adept at providing each role with his own unique touch while maintaining a strong lead presence in each drama. Ehd e Wafa showed him in a new light where he made a character so loveable through his own way of acting.

Ahmad Ali Akbar was another young actor who broke through with this drama and proved how talented he is! Osman Khalid Butt and Wahaj Ali were also brilliant in their respective roles and no other actor could have been as perfect in their places.

Zara Noor Abbas and Alizeh Shah both played strong female characters that were not mere caricatures and actually had a huge role to play in the overall story. And not to forget some of the supporting actors such as Adnan Samad Khan and Hajra Yamin who were amazing and in some moments stole the spotlight from the main actors with how strong their presence was!

Director Saife Hassan had so much talent to manage and he did an incredible job not only on that end but also in the way the drama turned out so aesthetically pleasing! The young cast and the direction was excellent and we wish them best of luck for other projects!

The writing of the show had certain aspects that were criticized for various reasons, such as continuity issues as well as lack of coherence. But the last episode attempted to make up for all these plot holes and provide closure for every character overall.

Mustafa Afridi worked really hard on the characterization of each lead, and the way their stories intertwined was something fresh for us. He also managed to introduce to us and the industry in general to actual young people that could be looked up to and seen as representation for the youth of this country. Most dramas as we all are aware usually focus on house-bound issues and love, but Ehd e Wafa certainly strayed far from the usual and ended up being far more entertaining that your typical household drama.

Hopefully in the future we get to see more of such dramas where there are young people pursuing fruitful careers instead of being embroiled in conflicts about love, and female characters that have depth and reflect the reality of young women in Pakistan. In that regard, kudos to Mustafa Afridi who managed to take a risk and come up with something different and unique.

The way Ehd e Wafa ended was definitely bittersweet, but while we’re sad to see it end we also hope to see all the actors, the writer and director work on future projects. In the end Ehd e Wafa was a treat to watch with a few bumps on the road, but overall a well-made, entertaining show!
