Dil Lagi Episode 10 Review
Although our heroine blames halaat very often for all the twisted decisions she made which changed the course of her life forever but actually Anmol’s overactive imagination and an obsession with assuming things is what landed her in the position she is in today. All through tonight’s episode Anmol kept on judging Mohid and while she did that she did not of course give him even a little benefit of the doubt. Even if Mohid does something good, Anmol manages to think of at least one solid reason which will convince her and everyone around her that he is not a good person. Anmol’s character has always been bold right from the start but until she made the decision to get married to Mohid, she used this strength for the right reasons, now all Anmol does is find ways to convince herself and even Mohid that he is the most despicable person on earth!!!
This episode opened with Sabiha telling Anmol details of her married life. There was nothing new about this conversation except for the part about the ‘kasm’. Anmol is someone Sabiha can confide in and it was rather ironic to see Anmol who is anything but happy telling someone else ways to be happy!! Anmol’s ego might have been satisfied the day she decided to take revenge from Mohid by getting married to him and investing all her energy into making his life a living hell but is she really happy? Anmol also tried to prove to Sabiha that sometimes you have to be selfish to win your happiness. Anmol is stubborn, egoistic and yes at times very unreasonable but somehow I don’t see her as a selfish person.
The references to all those Indian films which Anmol mentioned made me laugh because she said exactly what might be going on in the mind of some of the viewers but she made it very clear that this story was not going to end the way these films ended. Anmol and Mohid continued to argue about everything and anything in tonight’s episode. Although Anmol is no longer my favorite character in the play but Mehwish Hayat has certainly done what was expected from her character. Every time Anmol is around Mohid, she has disgusted expressions, which pretty much sum up how she feels about Mohid. She will do anything to hurt this man with her words and actions and there isn’t anything which Mohid can do to prove that he isn’t that bad after all! Anmol is so full of hatred for this man that she fails to see anything he does in a positive light.
It is so good to see a drama for a change in which the girl’s family in particular has not disappeared completely after she got married. All the characters in the play are given enough screen time in every episode which is something that should certainly be appreciated since nowadays there is a new trend of introducing the characters in the first few episodes and then completely relegating them to the background until they are needed to take the story forward. Anmol’s mother and her sister are a very important part of the story and even when they do not add to the story in any way they are given ample screen time. You are not left wondering where they went!!!! In this episode Anmol’s mother gave the same advice to her daughter which she gave in the last episode but this time she had a different tone. The reason Anmol’s mother gave for coming to meet her was touching! Good to know that there are still mothers in our dramas who we can relate to unlike Mannu’s parents who have decided to play numb all of a sudden!
The twist at the end of the episode was the most interesting part of this entire episode. Mishaal finally told Mohib the truth and the most amusing bit was that she had no idea what she had done!! The music in the background every time Mishaal and Dastagir meet and their nok jhok is always spot on! Dastagir’s character and Imran Ashraf’s acting is simply brilliant. There was a time when I thought that Dastagir was not the right match for Mishaal because she is a completely different person than him – much more groomed and educated – but now I think they look really cute together. And honestly speaking I would like to see Dastagir getting his happy ending.
I have not been able to connect to Sabiha’s character right from the beginning. Her track is repetitive and I find it really hard to feel for her. Mohid and Dastagir have to be the most interesting and likeable characters in this serial. Hamayun Saeed has managed to bring out the best in his character. I always find myself rooting for them. I am waiting to find out what Mohid will do now that he knows that Anmol had been playing games with him. Saba Hameed’s wardrobe and acting is always flawless but there are times when it is very difficult to like her character. She has a lot in common with her bahu.
