Another Thursday brought with it another episode of Koi Chand Rakh which was as engaging as the last one, with a few new twist and turns. In the past few episodes the drama has finally gained momentum after dragging on the same story line for a while. Despite love sagas being played on almost every channel, this drama has carved a niche for itself in the hearts’ of its viewers. Boasting an ensemble star cast, that includes the famous onscreen couple of Ayeza Khan and Imran Abbas as the main protagonists, every character is delivering good performance.
The drama starts with Zain (Imran Abbas) and Zia’s argument where the latter warns Zain that he will bring out Zain and Nishal’s truth in front of everyone. Zain on the other hand is torn between his love for Nishal and the promises he made to his dying father of remaining faithful to Rabeel.
Meanwhile, Nishal (Areeba Habib) continues to find ways to somehow break Zain and Rabeel’s relation. For a while she is shown having second thoughts about executing her evil plans but eventually her selfishness triumphs. This drama is a perfect example of how love makes you vulnerable. How it takes away your sense of judgment between right and wrong. How it wipes away your moral conscience.
A character that I am finding hard to understand is that of Rabeel (Ayeza Khan). She is constantly being used, insulted, and betrayed by her aunt for her own benefit but still she continues to fulfill her requests. Not only that she is now also at the disposal of her mother-in-law and sister-in-law who exploit her to their own advantages. Rabeel is highly educated woman and surely she can do better than that at understanding people. Let’s hope she soon becomes conscious of her surroundings.
Tired of Umair’s drinking and smoking habits, his father disinherits him and tells him to leave his house. Although Muneeb is totally doing justice to his role as the inconsolable, heartsick Umair, I would like to see his character evolve into a mature person who can do better than sulk around all day. And from the looks of it my wish may be granted soon enough as Umair gets to know that something is cooking between her sister and Zain. For that I am keeping my fingers crossed for the next week’s episode of Koi Chand Rakh.
