Tehreem (Sarwat Gillani) is completely traumatized by the loss of her child. Her mother(Gul-e-Rana) and sister in law Qurat ul Ain (Sana Askari), try to bring her back to normal life but to no avail. Sarwat Gillani is a seasoned actor and this can be seen in her portrayal of a woman who has not only lost her child, but also her ability to produce any offspring forever. Her character Tehreem tries to find solace in her nephew. Zain (Mirza Zain Baig), on the other hand is worried about her behavior towards him. He is shown to be a good human being as mostly in our society, women’s infertility issues lead to men getting married for the second time. But Naulakha has tried to break this stereotype.
On the suggestion of Zain’s mother in law/aunt, he considers adopting a child. Since Tehreem is extremely attached to Samar (her nephew) Zain requests Nabeel and Qurat ul Ain (Sana Askari) to give them their son. Qurat is reluctant at first but after Nabeel makes her understand Tehreem’s situation, she agrees.
Meanwhile, Noor Jahan Begum (Bushra Ansari) and Anwar Ali (Behroze Subzwari) are leaving no stone unturned on their respective parts to make the family wealth their own. Family properties are usually the bone of contention between family members resulting in family feuds. How a mere piece of jewellery (the Naulakha necklace) can pit true relatives against each other? This has been shown brilliantly. From Noor Jehan Begum to Qurat ul Ain, everyone is eager to get their hands on the Naulakha(the necklace). Shafaq (Kiran Haque) continues to care for Tehreem and her adopted son.
The production team has done a good job in showing the true essence of the life within the walls of the haveli. Also Noor Jahan Begum’s trousseau adds a traditional feel to the overall look of the drama.
It would be interesting to see how each character further evolves in their quest to achieve their hearts’ desires in the next episode. Watch out for the ugly side of Qurat ul Ain, Noor Jehan Begum’s obsession for the Naulakha and Anwar Ali’s lust for wealth.
