What is the most essential ingredient to make a marriage work?
Love, power, understanding, mutual respect and sense of responsibility or just plain money?
While most marriages work on the basics of the other factors, there are some who ruin a perfect life, family and marriage just because they don’t have an abundance of money.
Meray Paas Tum Ho, the 2019/2020 super blockbuster Pakistani drama which broke every previous record, is based upon the greed of a wife and her hunger for power.
It started with a simple narration in the first episode of the depiction of a very happy family of a young couple with their child.
The discontent of the wife was apparent from the first episode itself. Her greed for jewellery they could ill afford, her hunger for more expensive clothes, her complete disregard for the love of her husband and her son.
The couple Danish Akhtar and Mehwish have a child, Rumi, who is much wiser for his age, should be content and happy in their little world, but are not.
She has a rich friend, who Mehwish idolises and wishes secretly to live her life.
As is wont, through her, she meets a very rich and powerful millionaire Shehwar Ahmad, who takes to her bewitching beauty from the word go.
He leaves no stone unturned to woo her, with the sole intent of luring her away from her home and hearth.
Which doesn’t take much efforts anyway.
He offers her a fake job and a handsome salary. She enters the web willingly and they start a whirlwind romance resulting in the outcome of Mehwish leaving her husband, son and home, in the middle of the night.
Shaken by her infidelity, Danish is totally devastated at the way his wife left him.
After much thought he leaves his government job and sells his house and invests the entire amount in buying the shares of Shehwar’s company. Resulting in a turn of fortune for him making him wealthier..
Meanwhile Shehwar’s wife, Maham, returns from the US and stops their wedding which was about to take place.
Shehwar is jailed for misappropriation of funds and Mehwish is turned out of the home.
Rumi’s teacher develops an interest in Danish and proposes to him, he accepts her ring and the wife returns to him in the hope of a reconciliation.
She stays with his friend and tries her best to reconcile.
She buys his old flat and starts living there, using her neighbours to woo him back.
He’s unmoved even by her suicide attempt and doesn’t visit her.
She then tries some divine intervention, which does fructify in his visit, which turns out to be fatal for him as his heart collapses with the pressure of his emotions and he eventually breathes his last at the hospital leaving his son and entire wealth to her.
The story that was written by Khalil ur Rehman, created a worldwide dialogue about the morality and the importance of moral values in a marriage.
One dialogue created a worldwide backlash, which addressed Mehwish as a woman not worth two pennies, Khalil Ur Rehman stood his ground and refused to apologise for his firm stand.
The drama was based upon a previous drama, Zara Yaad Kar.
It is said that the lead female role was refused by many leading actresses as it was an antagonist and that too such a negative role of a woman who leaves her child.
Ayeza Khan accepted the role and did full justice to it.
Humayun Saeed as a humble, god fearing government officer, having high moral standards was just the right choice for the role.
Adnan Siddiqui as Shehwar had the right amount of sophistication, polish and screen presence, looking every inch the millionaire he was supposed to be. His cunning and scheming attitude apparent in every scene.
The role of Maham was played by Savera Nadeem who brought the house down with her entry and the subsequent slap to Mehwish resulting in a plethora of memes on the internet and social media.
Hira Mani as Hania, Rumi’s teacher who falls in love with Danish looked very beautiful and elegant with her lovely and measured acting.
The entire cast did a great job, the drama was declared a hit from the first episode garnering billions of views across the world, breaking all boundaries.
The OST was an instant hit and many singers tried their hands at cover versions sung but Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
The OST has every emotion and the required pain that depicted this saga of betrayal, infidelity and failed marriages.
The direction by Nadeem Baig is faultless and the last episode was aired in cinema halls due to the unprecedented success of it.
The only sore point was the disappointing end. None of the viewers liked the death of Danish and Mehwish getting away Scot free with literally no poetic justice meted to her.
Still, the drama is a super blockbuster and anusar watch for all.
I’d give it 4.5 stars, but for the disappointing end.
