Review: Humsafar Episode 13 Analysis
Review: Humsafar Episode 13 Analysis: I was actually in two minds about reviewing Humsafar this week – mainly because the story did not really progress much and I was seriously not interested in Sarah’s rants about Khizar asking her out to dinner and Farida telling Sarah her work was done and Sarah has to now step in and do the rest.
However, in the end, I decided to briefly review the episode mainly after seeing all the requests on the DP Chat. OK, so as I said, the story did not move forward at all. We know only that Khirad is still at Batool Khala’s and has had to swallow an enormous amount of pride in doing so. Ashar first had a nervous breakdown and then sought refuge in his usual workaholic self. He also turned down all of Sarah’s requests to discuss Khirad, go out with her and lighten up – and I watched this very contentedly.
Overall, the pace of the episode was mellow. Yes, I understand it was necessary to show the transition of the characters in the new situations and we could not have just expected the director to take a huge leap forward. However, the previous and this episode could have been combined with some crisp editing. The taking-out-to-dinner part of Sarah and Khizar could have been eliminated completely, methinks.
Also, those who were wondering why Batool Khala never calls Ashar got their answer. Honestly, though, I just don’t understand why she gave such a lengthy preface and then launched into Khirad’s innocence. Why not just get to the point and tell him the important thing – that he will soon become a father? I suppose if I ever got into writing novels, they would not be more than ten pages because I have so little tolerance for such depressing/sad scenes on the screen. Anyway, to move on, of course Ashar does not believe Batool Khala. He has blocked Khirad out of his life. And the precap of the next episode was just as depressing.
I fast-forwarded most of this episode and it does seem I will be doing the same next week. Hareem, where are you?
PS: Ashar and Sarah never even got engaged in the novel and I do hope they don’t in this drama serial as well. It was so cute the way Khirad realizes later that Ashar has not married again. If he does, it would totally destroy that part.
