Last night’s back to back episodes of Surkh Chandni showed many developments and surprisingly, the track is finally giving us some hope. With Aida and Amaan (Sohai Ali Abro & Osman Khalid Butt) being united again and their baby on its way, we surely expect that good times are ahead for the couple.
The tables have turned for Shumaila (Mansha Pasha) as the walls are closing in on her. At one hand, Aida’s mother has revealed her evil schemes to Aida and Amaan, on the other hand, she is emotionally overwhelmed by Jawad’s (Asad Siddiqui) attachment. Now her husband Mukhtar (Hasan Ahmed) has found out khula papers and expensive jewellery in her possession, which has given him enough reason to suspect betrayal.
Jawad, who was earlier shown to be nefarious but sensible, has lost control over his plans in pursuit of his desire to get Shumaila, irrespective of the cost. He is willing to kill Mukhtar or transfer his own house in Shumaila’s name. He is adamant to cross any limits to get Shumaila in his life, so much so that even his own mother (played exceptionally well by Gul-e-Rana) is concerned. We can’t say that he is head over heels in love with her; he is just unwilling to let go of his obsessions. And this time, his mother, who was his partner in crime, is also afraid of him.
Mukhtar is up to something; although he has promised Aida that he will help them take Jawad and Shumaila down, but he couldn’t resist asking Shumaila why she ruined their marriage. Later, he tied her down in the store room upstairs and tried convincing Jawad to go to Hyderabad. This could easily turn out to be a disaster for Aida.
Aida and Amaan have hired a lawyer through the women shelter home and now the drama is heading towards a court room drama. Yes, you heard it right, we are soon expecting another drama with court room scenes as Aida will fight against Jawad and Shumaila. However, we are eagerly waiting to see if Surkh Chandni will also try to hit viewer’s emotional chords by lowering down the perpetrator’s punishment or showing him in remorse (like we have seen in Inkaar and Cheekh).
Will Shumaila and Jawad get what they deserve? Is Jawad going to murder Mukhtar or will he use Shumaila yet again. That’s a burning question and as per the teaser of the next episode, we believe Shumaila will lose her senses after Mukhtar’s murder and Amaan will yet again suffer from another injustice. We are eagerly waiting to see how the story unfolds.
