*Disclaimer: Epk aims to review every new drama as it starts however we continue with only those that have quality content or are a popular choice.
Last night’s episode dug a little deeper into Donia’s past while the others pretty much tackled their present. Every character is going through something at this point in the drama, whether its mourning the loss of love, suffering from betrayal or trying to live with the monster that resides within.
This drama offers so much variety yet does not overwhelm us with the variation of occurrences happening in the lives of the characters. The story is beautifully written and it is the sort that instantly pulls you in and keeps you engaged throughout.By now we are fully invested in the lives of all the characters of Ishq Zahe Naseeb and we want to see how things unfold for them.
Gohar (Sonya Hussyn) seems to be getting a hang of things while Sameer (Zahid Ahmed) is accepting the changes she is trying to introduce. Whether it is out of guilt or if he is genuinely impressed, we are not sure yet. Donia (Zarnish Khan) is showing another side of her character one that has been wronged and betrayed. She may come off as a strict cold person but her harshness is her armor to block out the heartbreak in her past.
Jehangir is your typical eastern man who likes to control everything under the banner of his toxic masculinity and precious ego.Khalid Malik depiction of him makes him even more convincing and hateful. At times he comes off a bigger danger to Gohar than Sameer. Kashif (Sami Khan) on the other hand is an epitome of sincerity and his character makes you love him as well as feel sorry for him.
The episode remained crisp and eventful. The dialogue and performances were at par. The director excels at maintaining the uniqueness of the story telling of this drama. Every episode leaves us with some questions and we remain wondering what is next.
