YES. Seems like its finally time to see Danish (Humayun Saeed) stand up for himself and fans of the drama are loving it. Episode 15 promises that the future of the drama isn’t going to be with weak and sad little Danish but someone who is ready to be strong, for the sake of his son.
Mehwish (Ayeza Khan) is adamant to take her son with her and Shehwar will go to any lengths (for now) to make her happy. Shehwar calls Danish and tells him to make sure that Mehwish meets her son in three days or else.
Danish, scared that Shehwar and Mehwish will take his son away because they are rich and powerful, tries to convince his son Rumi to meet his mother.
Rumi looks at his father and says, “you are not my strength, you are my weakness,” which could mean two things: he will do anything for his father or he believes that his father is not strong enough to take a stand against his mother and her lover. Danish believes its the latter and finally gets the courage to stand up to Shehwar.
He barges into Shehwar’s office and grabs him by the collar, threatening him against physical harm if he ever comes near his son or tries to take his son away. Shehwar’s employees watch the whole thing and one thing is obvious – money cannot buy courage.
Finally, finally, we see Danish as the hero. A man who didn’t stand up for his wife (not that what she did was worth standing up for) but as a father, he realizes that his strength is his child and he won’t let anyone take that away.
He speaks to Rumi on the phone before he goes to warn Shehwar and tells him that Rumi doesn’t need to meet his mother if he doesn’t want to and that he, Danish, really is his son’s strength.
The strength isn’t about physical strength at all but it is about standing up against being bullied and bullies is exactly what Mehwish and Shehwar are. Danish has sold his apartment as well and is about to start his business and with his newfound strength, he is bound to be successful. What is so riveting about this drama is that it is no longer going to be about the love of a woman but the love of family and children. And one has to give it to Rumi (Shees Sajjad Gul) for his fantastic acting in this episode. The way he cries, silently, in his bed, while the scenes change between a deliriously happy mother and her lover and a lost father, reflects brilliant acting. We actually feel for him.
Mehwish tells Shehwar in one of the scenes that Danish will give into anything because he is a coward. After last night’s episode one thing is for sure. He’s not going to give up on his son – come what may.
