It calls for a walking away from the superficial materialism of this world, a conscious rejection of all the various luxuries we everyday folk deem as necessities. Hina Bayat was once again her quietly impressive self. You are commenting using your Facebook account. After your reviews, everything makes so much more sense. I had to turn on the heat last night — It was freezing! Umera Ahmed always bring out something to make me think deeply.. Truly it is incidents like these that bring you closer to God. This episode made me realize how far I actually am from zaat and how close to other worldly things.
Thank you for working so hard on your projects and giving us characters we all can celebrate. Nothing would make sense otherwise, like you say. All I could do was pray to Allah to make me a better person who is able to help others for His sake. Infact i wept through entire ep…so much thst my 5yr old son got worrried and asked me why i was crying…hehe. For giving us so much to think about — thank you Umera and Sarmad — much respect …. And exactly, loved how Falak no longer cared who she was getting involved with and who she was hugging. In turn all are being asked to self-evaluate as they take one step away from wujood and move that much closer to zaat. This asceticism is beyond the realm of the obvious.
All I could do was pray to Allah to make me a better person who is able to help others episide His sake. I look forward to each review every week just as much as I do to the episode bcoz having been a part of its making I want to know how it is coming through.
But I guess the real question is, what are we all taking from this. Tg fact I have relatives up North and we always invite them to fly South in the winter but hardly anyone takes up on that offer!
But khair just like any other rishta this one also comes straight from the heart, the only place episoe will find God, I guess phir har dua qabool ho jati hai, mangni ki aur srama ki.
I agree with Nusrat B, I hope they strike a proper balance in the end. Sez truly is a game changer in how its making us reflect on our past and present behavior and hopefully shame us into changing our future behavior… Btw, on a tangential note, how come you still need an Sshehr and a fan?
For giving us so much to think about — thank you Umera and Sarmad — much respect …. That was the gist of the episode — agar samajh ke paroh gai tow seekhnay mein asaani ho gi. Aakhir hum kitna kar duniya ke peeche bag sakte hain, even the world will become tired.
Leave a Reply 51 reply Enter your comment here The dialogues following that scene were so hard hitting. Nothing against these girls, but for once I would like to see a heroine I can relate to as well. I felt how nashukri i am. All of your insights always add so much more to the whole experience of SeZ!

Chotay motay mistakes chalte hain especially If the story is not revolving around them. We all know of someone who has lost a loved one too early in life and if they did not have faith to keep them grounded, they would have surely gone crazy. Ansar has a few skeletons hidden in his closet as well. And perhaps it is indeed the first time that she has actually seen all that is around her.
My fav scene was the throwing-clothes-out-of-closet one. I had missed the last episode so I sat down to watch it to get the whole flavor. Apart from SeZ, its always been a pleasure watching you bring your character alive on screen.
The way you explain everything with the sufi connotations and the spirituality…it makes the whole experience almost sublime!!!!
Thanks for sharing the story, Afia — sent a chill down my spine as I read it. Mahira has just blown me away with her emotions week after week,if spoke still say she jum act they must be watching something else!
There is really fv much left to say now. The scene between her and Mehrenussia she simply had the most amazing expressions. How many of us can find it in our hearts to cry for strangers ,poors. Peisode thank you for another well written review that breaks down this wonderful story, especially the background story on Adhem, loved it!!
Nothing goes with us and then its too late to go back and fix things. This episode left me in self-analysis mode. Post was not sent – check your email addresses! From the time you hosted a show to your first venture in acting, I have been loving your work. Such zzaat is the power of Shehr-e Zaat, it is not just a serial one watches for mindless entertainment and later forgets.
I really hadnt paid much attention to that angle tell you brought it up — thanks for drawing our attentions! Sab se pasandida shai hamesha hum se chin jaati hai, kyun ke shayed sab se pasandida shai Allah hona chahiye?
I thought it was just a poem until I read your review so appreciate the insight greatly! She certainly is seeing the things from a new enlightentented prospective. I think I was so involved in her emotional junoon, it was an amazing scene. The callous complacency shown by Mehrunnisa on the death of Majid is a prime example of all this! Sez truly is a game changer in how its making us reflect on our past and present behavior and hopefully shame us into changing our future behavior….

Will we ever have another serial with such depth? Notify me of new posts via email. Umera Ahmed always bring out something to make me think deeply. A big question indeed, one that she asks herself as she wearily climbs up the stairs to her bedroom and then looks out the window at all the beauty that lies beyond. Abou Ben Adhem may his tribe increase! It was a tough episode to watch because it made me question my own life and its purpose.
After your reviews, everything makes so much more sense. Hey SZ, With dramas like this no one can remain silent…every ep of SeZ is sooo sooooo sooooo beautiful that one has to praise the work of the actors, director n all the crew.
