Once you sin, your conscience never lets you rest in peace. Hashmat Ali gives us the proof of this in tonight’s episode. After marrying Roshni off with Umar, and exacting his vengeance in the last episode, this week’s episode was an eye-opener for Hashmat Ali’s guilty conscience.
Under the direction of Siraj ul Haq and
produced by Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi, the 6th episode of Ramz e Ishq
aired tonight on GEO TV. Although it was a bit slow-paced, tonight’s episode
had a little bit of everything from remorse to the toxicity of revenge and the
pangs of heartache & lost love.
The stepping stone for this week’s
story was already laid in the last episode and we saw a subtle shift in the
narrative from revenge to remorse. The episode begins with Hashmat Ali having thinking
over his appalling actions. As he is taken to the hospital after suffering from
a heart attack, we cannot help but think that bad deeds always bring about bad
We see two narratives running parallel
in tonight’s episode with Hashmat Ali (Abid Ali) being remorseful and Saffiya
(Nida Mumtaz) still burning with the hatred for Khadija. Not even slightly
ashamed of what she did to Roshni, all she does is reek of evil, revenge, and
With a lot of moving scenes in tonight’s
episode, Hiba Bukhaari could have done more justice to her character. Although
her acting was perfect, sometimes the dialogue delivery and facial expressions
seemed a tad bit forced. “Aap mjhe apna
khoon maantay hain badday sahib?” was a powerful dialogue whichwas delivered with a face devoid of any
expression, be it pain, or skepticism. All other actors did justice to their
roles and portrayed their avatars flawlessly.
The best scene of the episode was
undoubtedly the confrontation between Roshni and Rayyan, where Rayyan(Mekaal
Hassan) holds his kismet responsible for everything & Roshni terms him a
coward for not standing up for their love. A story of unrequited love,
the drama doesn’t bore us at all rather we are literally on our toes waiting
for the story to unfold. Being a girl who holds family values close, we cannot
see a scenario in which Roshni will go against the wishes of her family, even
at the cost of her own happiness.
As in the previous episodes, the dialogues
captured emotions perfectly. Delivered with crisp perfection, we felt that
drama’s writer Misbah Nosheen did absolute justice to the storyline. Be it
desire or despair, malice or hopelessness, the script captured them all
With Rayaan back home and Roshni married to
Umar, we can see the emotional turmoil awaiting both our protagonists. This
week’s episode ends on a heart-wrenching note & we are anxiously awaiting
for the next week’s episode. We had high hopes for this serial and so far we
haven’t been disappointed. Fingers crossed that a bit of happiness finds its
way in the life of Rayaan & Roshni!
