While reading Bin Roye Aansoo, one thing that I loved about Saba was that she was very relatable. She is not an evil person but has all the emotions like all of us rather than the leading ladies of most of our serials. She can get jealous, can get angry and is also aware of it all. This episode cemented it further that Mahira Khan was the right choice for the role.
In this episode, Saba found out that irtiza has fallen in love with Saman and not her. She, all of a sudden, seems to have lost control over everything. Saman is now the favorite child of her parents and irtiza is love struck. she is the older, prettier, wiser and sughar beti but the only thing that bothers saba is that irtiza has chosen Saman over saba. she tries to be rude to be Saman but Saman being her ‘good’ self keeps on loving saba. Saba shares her feelings with her dadi and her dadi tells her to accept the fact that irtiza is in love with Saman and saba must not be jealous. during the engagement ceremony, saba tries her best to look happy but there is sadness in her eyes that no one notices except for her dadi.
The episode belonged completely to Mahira Khan. I’m loving her minimal make up look which is in complete contrast to armeena Rana khan’s. And yes, her performance is simply brilliant. I cried with saba when I read the novel and I cried today with saba while watching the scene where she over heard irtiza proposing Saman.
Next week I will be tuning in to see saba only. she is my favorite character on screen right now
