In an absolutely delightful episode last night, Noori finally becomes the character we fell in love with in the beginning and shows why she is the star of the drama! When she sees the truth about Sahir, Noori reevaluates everything she had done at that point and realizes how she had taken the wrong side in all this.

While Noori’s feelings had always been genuine, Sahir revealed himself to just be a greedy and conniving person who had taken Noori for granted. But Noori shows that she is not to be messed with and she finally turns back to her old version and will try to save Bhola and Fehmida.

We do not get to see more of Bhola this episode which was disappointing. But by showing less of him, and highlighting the other actors as well, it becomes clear that every actor in the drama has extreme talent.

Specially Syed Jibran who plays Sahir showed a new side to his acting as he plays the villain with dedication and conviction. He really  has become one of the most convincing characters as he uses Noori for his own greed and fulfillment. He has truly done justice to his complex character with his brilliant depiction of Sahir. He portrays Sahir’s many shades to the best of his abilities and the complex character keeps us guessing his next move.

Amma Janate also shined in this episode as we get to see more of her insight as she talks to Noori, as well as Fehmida as we find more about her background and Bhola’s childhood.

The way everything is unveiled in this is impressive, and a proof of how great the script is written. Faiza Iftikhar has made the dialogues so beautiful and heart-touching that every line by any actor carries so much meaning and depth. The writing and acting of the drama compliments each other perfectly!

The direction the story is taking is something I did not predict,  because most of the viewers had accepted the fact that Noori was going to be the villain from now on and she would abandon Bhola. But the development in Noori’s character is shocking and impressive! She certainly is not a naive person, but her love is so genuine that she expects the same from other people. By seeing how distorted Sahir’s type of ‘love’ is, Noori sees the light finally and that Bhola’s love is much more pure.

While this change might be a positive thing, Sahir and Nusrat are still hell-bent on acquiring the wealth through any means necessary. Nusrat starts to show some hesitance which means he might just have a turn of heart soon, but Sahir is still cold-blooded. The story’s development and its characters are genuinely unique and natural in the way they are written, and every episode leaves us wanting for more!

Now that the story is turning out in a different way, there really is no way to predict what happens next! But we definitely are excited to know how Noori stops Sahir and Nusrat as well as find a way to bring Bhola back to his normal self. There are so many things happening in the drama yet nothing seems overwhelming. Regardless to say, Ranjha Ranjha Kardi has impressed us once more and exceeded our expectations!
