This episode of Naulakha has been, most of the time, the aftermath of the marriage of Zain Ali (Mirza Zain Baig) and Tehreem (Sarwat Gillani) as well as the possession of naulakha. Noor Jahan Begum (Bushra Ansari) is still in the grief of losing Zain Ali for Shafaq (Kiran Haque). Shafaq is also trying hard to cope up with the toughest pain of her life. Others are worrying about the ownership of the most precious piece of the family jewel. A lot of lies, tensions, and schemes were there by various characters.

Mumtaz (Gul-e-Rana), Noor Jahan Begum, and Anwar Ali (Behroze Sabzwari) are the three persons who want to have naulakha in their own ownership. Family politics and conspiracies are on the peak. Sentiments and feelings are left far behind and the biggest loss has been of Shafaq.

Few of the dialogues were also good, expressing the story in a few lines. Like Shafaq said to Noor Jahan Begum, “you talk about it again and again and my heart burns. Seeing them together is not easy for me.” And Tehreem said to Zain Ali: “why everything in this home starts from naulakha and ends it on the same? I’ve been hearing the stories of naulakha since my childhood…”

The materialistic thinking of today’s people has been brilliantly exposed by the writers, producer, and director of Naulakha. This Naulakha is a perfect metaphor of materialism which is the most important in our age, unluckily. We can very well understand by seeing Naulakha how ruling over the family, status, and substantial interests become dominant as compared to relationships.

In this episode, there was a great miss. The honeymoon event of Zain Ali and Tehreem was established through dialogues only. No scene of the event was there.

Turning toward the technical side of Naulakha, let’s talk about its production value. We see a clear difference in the dress code and styling of the people of the two families. Noor Jahan Begum, Shafaq, and male characters of Hawaili wear gharara with gold jewelry, shalwar suits, and formal dresses. While Tehreem wears jeans with the top/shirt, light jewelry, and modern hairstyle.

Still, Noor Jahan Begum is making plans to break the marriage of Zain with Tehreem and make Shafaq his new bride. She is ready to go to any length to execute her plans for bringing naulakha back to her. Zain and Tehreem have got their love in the form of marriage but they perhaps don’t have any idea what is coming their way. Misunderstandings are also going to develop between both the leading ladies of the story in the upcoming episode.
