Ehd e Wafa: The story finally picks up in Episode 3
By Fatima Shaheen Niazi
Review Episode 3: The show starts off with where it finished last time – Saad’s (Ahad Raza Mir) love story with Dua. In the previous episode, Saad bumped into a girl while roaming about the streets of Muree in the night. Surprisingly, he couldn’t take his eyes off her and Shahzain (Osman Khalid Butt) took it upon himself to follow the girl home.
When they return to college, Shahzaininforms the rest of the SSG gang about Saad’s crush. It turns out, the boy has been smitten by her since he was studying in matric.
The first time Saad laid eyes upon Dua was at an art workshop. The second time he crossed her path was a random bookstore. Unfortunately, he hadn’t gathered the courage to speak to her either time and had resorted to simply drawing sketches of her in a notebook.
When Saad’s obsession with Dua is revealed, the SSG gang takes it upon themselves to kickstart a love story that is purely based on Dua’s attractive appearance.
However, things take a bad turn when the gang heads out to roam the streets of Murree like every other night. Food for thought: We understand the lot are young and energetic, but isn’t sneaking out of their hostel every night a bit of a stretch?
Luckily, sneaking out this time actually helps as the gang run into Dua once again. Shahzain, the most shameless and courageous member of the group decides to cease the opportunity and reveals Saad’s feelings to the stunnedDua. The blushing Saad tries to intervene but fails to stop his friends from embarrassing him in front of the love of his life. While the situation might seem harmless on TV, the fact is, in real life this could be termed as harassment.
Things finally go south when Dua’s over-protective cousin arrives and finds a bunch of boys trying to get chummy with her. The boys then get into a tussle and the police arrives almost instantly.
Scared mindless, the SSG gang makes a run for it, while Saad and Dua’s cousin are arrested. The events that take place from this point onwards change lives of the four friends forever.
The warden of Lawrence college is called in and he takes this opportunity to manipulate Saad into telling on his friends. Could things get worse than this? Apparently, yes. The parents of the group of friends are called in and we see tears in their eyes for the first time.
Will Saad forgive his friends for deserting him when the police arrived? And most importantly, will the gang be expelled from college for their misdemeanor? Whatever the conclusion, the least we can assume is the lives of the four will never be the same again.
