Ashar and Khirad – what a pair! Collectively, as a nation we all fell in love with this charismatic couple. No guy could be as droolicious as Ashar and no gal could be as beautiful as Khirad. Individually stunning, as a pair they were drop dead gorgeous. They re-defined romance on the miniscreen, and the heat they generated with their fiery onscreen chemistry made it seem implausible that any other couple could come anywhere near to recreating that aura – until now. Enter, Nusrat and Mutma’in! I said this before and am happy to reiterate – Nusrat and Mutma’in have to one of be the hottest joris onscreen these days. Move over all the wannabes, Zaroon and Kashaf included, Nusrat and Mutma’in came, they saw and they conquered!
Check this video and see for yourself – from one sizzling couple to the other equally hot one!!
I had planned on skipping the review for this latest episode, but after watching Mutma’in Uncle pack lunch for Nusrat Aunty, I just could not resist – the review had to be written and my excitement about this pair had to shared. Heart-stopping as Ashar’s “I love you Khirad” might have been, I have to say Uncle Mutmain’s pyar bhari naseehats to Aunty-ji were equally heart warming. How cute was he giving her bees rupay to pay off the would-be hasslers – this, for me, is what romance is all about. Long after the lovey-dovey filmi dialogue baazi is over and done with, this kind of support, affection, understanding, and accommodation is what defines and sustains a relationship. I just could not stop smiling as Uncle Mutma’in cautioned Rayan to drive safely and ungli pakar kar road cross karana aur classroom tak chor kar aanaa and later as he waved a forlorn goodbye to Nusrat Aunty — awwww!!
Seriously, we should give a huge round of applause to the writers, director and producers for bringing us such a fabulous serial. Loaded with meaning, and explicit and implicit messages, Coke Kahani has something for everyone. From the youngsters to the young at heart, each and every viewer can find an issue they can identify with. In this latest episode, we saw Nusrat going through with her decision to go back to study. It was heartening to see Mutma’in supporting her choice – what a lovely role model for our older generation; rather than sitting around complaining about heir children, there is much they can do with their lives and so much they can contribute to society.
Maya and Asfand, the other hot couple here, are also gradually opening up to each other – not there yet, but certainly closer than before. It was very cute to see that even though Maya pretends not to care, she still does. Her call to the absent Nawab, that she was going to eat salad for her next meal was pretty funny. I love how the entire family is so involved in making this relationship work. Can hardly wait for the moment when Maya announces her decision to stay – the sparks are already flying, now waiting for the flames!
While the older couples dealt with their issues, the younger ones too were trying to figure out how to deal with their nascent relationships. Clearly these are hard to maintain and need a lot of nurturing – from the initial awkwardness of acknowledging the very existence of a relationship to keeping one going through thick and thin – we saw all stages essayed beautifully in this week’s episode.
Yes, this one was another winner from the CK team – all elements are coming together beautifully in this very well-told story. Looking forward to more next week!!
