The character of Dadi played by Samina Ahmed is portrayed as a lunatic old woman who has lost her senses after her son’s death and as a reaction she behaves badly with anyone and does not let anyone come near her. Well it gives a feeling that she has not really lost her senses in fact she is reacting over something very terrible done with her. Who did that! How her son died ? What is this mystery? Why Aiza is anxiously insisting for meeting Dadi despite of family’s disapproval? The first half of the episode raises so many questions in our minds.


Well the other half of the episode is bit unfolding. Apparently Aiza is making an impression on the family that she wants to meet Dadi as a good daughter in law who wants to care and shows love to an elderly person, when in real she is the daughter of Mani, the deceased son of Dadi!

Things gets complex when Dadi eats breakfast from Aiza’s hand when she reveals to her that she is her son Mani’s daughter. Dadi loves her and she talks with her and eats the breakfast. This change surprises everyone in the house and makes them happy except Aiza’s mother in law who scolds her nurse for not attending Dadi carefully and that she needs to be more careful as she does not want Dadi to get better at any cost! Furthermore she takes Aiza to her mother’s place and indirectly warns Aiza’s mother. Well Aiza’s mother’s later reaction reveals that she has planned all that and she is the one taking revenge. Aiza’s mother tells Aiza that she has to take revenge for her, the reason why she has married in the household in the first place. The end of the episode leaves us craving for more information and we are anxiously waiting for the next episode to unfold the story a bit more.
