What a cliffhanger this episode ended on! This week’s episode of Mere Paas Tum Ho showed a more positive and mellow side of Danish’s (Humayun Saeed) life as things start to look up for him; a new house and a new car show that financially his life might be getting better. However, it seems that there still is a huge hole left in his heart.
Hania (Hira Salman) seems to be the solution to this problem according to Roomi, who tries his best to bring his teacher and his father together. On the other side of things, Mehwish (Ayeza Khan) prepares for her engagement to Shehwaar (Adnan Siddique) until a shocking surprise at the end occurs when Shehwaar’s wife Maham shows up and brings the engagement to a halt.
Where to even begin with this episode! Firstly, a huge applause to Humayun Saeed who at this point has become the shining star of this entire drama series with the way he portrays his character’s struggles so well! Ayeza Khan’s on-screen presence is also felt and the way Mehwish is so easy to despise should be chalked up to the actress’ prowess and talent only! This episode’s highlight for me in terms of the acting was definitely Hira Salman and Shees Sahi Gul, who plays Roomi.
The interactions between these two was so sweet and wholesome that it gave a nice break from the tense drama in everything else. The young actor who plays Roomi definitely deserves so much credit for managing to outshine everyone else with his genuine wholesomeness. We hope to see more of the cute actor in other dramas!
Since this episode was more focused on how Danish emotionally handled the way Mehwish was moving on from him, everything from the cinematography to the background score complemented this aspect very aptly. Nadeem Baig’s directing was well-paced and provided the actors ample space to showcase their emotions without being overshadowed by unnecessary details. The background score of this episode in particular was something I thought heightened the emotions really well and created a tense and dark atmosphere at all the right times, and definitely a detail that worked well with the mood of the episode overall!
Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has weaved great detail into the characters which makes them larger than life and not only dependant on the star power of the actors themselves, which is not usually the case with most dramas. Danish’s development throughout this has obviously been the highlight, but what I find an aspect to look forward to is Mehwish’s entire character arc.
Now that Shehwaar’s wife has returned, things will not be so easy for Mehwish. Will this make her realize how many people she has hurt, or will she continue on this path? These uncertainties are what make the story itself so interesting to keep up with, and the writer deserves the utmost credit for keeping things fresh and interesting!
