A disappointing final episode of a potentially great idea.
Sadly, even the last episode of Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha couldn’t deliver what we were promised – some precious romantic moments between Saad and Maheer. In fact, there were more scenes of other characters than the two main leads, whose “together scenes” we have been dying to watch forever.
2 fake rape twists… really? Do we not understand the solemnity of such sensitive issues and how they must not be trivialized. Again, the fact that no one in the entire team thought the narrative shouldn’t be featured in this manner is unfortunate. Have drama creators really run out of ideas on how to bring about certain situations and plot twists without ruining the story?
Speedy Wrap Up?
We find it hard to digest how everyone had a miraculous changeover in the final episode, especially Areeb, who suddenly realized (in the last 10 minutes), how wrong he had been. And his mother who had been the instigator of the entire conspiracy, very conveniently blamed everything on him.
The Villain Loses All?
For any drama, a villain is as important as a hero. But the drama compromised on Areeb’s character beyond necessity, especially in the final episode, reducing him to a foolish, ridiculous character rather than staying true to his psychopathic twist. His desperate call to the police station asking them to arrest Saad again was equally feeble and really turned the entire situation into a laughable matter. We wish he had been shown as a more powerful and imposing villain rather than an innocuous nobody.
To add to this fiasco, there was really no “makafat-e-amal” for Areeb’s mother and Faha? What about Areeb, he ends up going to jail – nothing that puts him through enough pain for what he did to Maheer.
Maheer was merely acting, pretending that she will leave Saad. Aah, we the innocent audiences really thought that maybe, there will be a more exciting or interesting twist. But alas, that was not to be! The final episode was not only disappointing on many levels, but it also offered us illogical scenes and twists, like Areeb’s mother being gullible enough to instantly believe that her son had actually raped Faha, especially when Faha just told everyone that she had planted fake rape allegations on Saad. When a girl herself is willing to marry you, why would you rape her? Does this make sense to you guys?
Romance Promised But Not Delivered
Saad and Maheer needed to create some mystery between them, but we couldn’t see the slightest trace of that. So, all scenes and interactions fell quite flat between them. As you can see, even in the final review, we couldn’t think of much to write about Saad and Maheer (sadly). The only thing we can report is that Saad eventually managed to say “I love you” after sooooo many episodes and after Maheer’s repeated insistence.
While Maheer did learn to appreciate that respect comes first over everything else in a relationship, and value Saad’s relentless support for her, we wished we had also seen Saad learning that when you love someone and value someone, you must let them know. Can the final scene make up for all our broken hopes and wishes for some cute romance moments between our lead couple?
