Is Alizeh’s mental and emotional breakdown now complete? If yes, then what happens next in Jaisay Aapki Marzi?
A Story Going Round In Circles
We can’t decide what is frustrating us more… the drama going around in circles, Natasha taking toxicity to another level, a weak character sketch of Aleezay that is not letting us feel any sympathy for her, Ramza’s insolence being presented as the voice of an independent woman, or the immature behavior of Aleezay’s parents.
Why Did Natasha Marry Meerub?
Did she want a toy boy in the likeness of Meerab to fulfil all her needs and whom she can mold as per her mood? We thought she needed someone submissive and obedient so she can get her way around him, but to get him to make tea for her, apply lotion on her feet etc. seems completely out of character for her. These actions seem beneath Natasha. Will Meerab take all this from her? He will also have to think about how his actions can affect his sister’s life. But we have already seen him resisting her. Natasha’s behavior will be a constant mental and emotional torture for him.
Both Natasha and Sherry seem completely unstable. So, what is the reason behind their behavior? We wish the drama had shown us past events in their life that have affected them in some way for us to understand their manipulative & destructive personalities.
Alizeh’s sadness at the fact that both her father and husband were busy in their own egoistic agendas, not thinking about her even once is causing her to be stuck between the two and it is ruining her emotionally. It represents a situation many women undergo when they have to take sides between their family and husband.
Alizeh’s Leaves No Room For Sympathy
Alizeh’s dialogue to her father: “You taught us to call out what is wrong and that was not the right thing to teach us. I have learnt not to do that”, seemed strange coming from an educated and well exposed girl, that she supposedly is shown to be. She can say she chooses to accept who Sherry is simply because she loves him, but surely, to justify something wrong as being right, is beyond understanding.
The father and mother decide to be completely childish and immature. We still can’t figure out how Alizeh’s mother suddenly decided to leave the house? Why did her father not return the cheque Alizeh gave him, if he is so conscious about his pride.
What proof does he have that Sherry has been abusive towards his daughter? For one partner to give up work is something a husband and wife mutually decide. Though as audiences we can see aware of everything and know about Sherry’s toxic behaviour, but her father doesn’t know all this. So his extreme reaction and creating so much hungama doesn’t make sense at all.
We ask at the end of the day …How can we feel for Alizeh’s character? How can the drama make people realize what really happens, how a strong person is gradually broken down? Why are we supposed to be okay with Ramza’s extremely rude behavior? Why and how can we take the father’s immature approach as being the right attitude a parent should adopt?
