Although it carries a very dark, dark plot, what we really like about Meri Guriya on ARY Digital, is that its not only educational but fast paced. Right from the beginning, the drama has not only addressed the issue of child abuse and rape, it has focused on educating the masses as well. The way Shehnaz (Sania Saeed) educated her daughters about strangers and good touch and bad touch has been examplary. Even if we cannot sit with our children to tell them this, the drama is doing a good job of actually explaining to us how the subject can be approached.
Ali Hassan’s direction is brilliant and under his watchful eye, actors have delivered their 100%. Radain Shah’s script will move your heart because it talks about everything, from love to hate, to helplessness and pedophilia as well, explaining reasons for each.
Coming to this week’s episodes, a lot has happened this week. Dabeer has succeeded in his evil attempts and now Abida has gone missing.
The episode begins when Dabeer very cleverly tries to put whole the blame of poisoning Samreen to Safeena but Samreen understands the whole situation and takes the whole blame on herself saying that she attempted to poison herself because she don’t want to marry an aged person. What we want to know is why Samreen, knowing the fact Dabeer actually wanted to kill Safeena is still calm and quiet about the matter. Even Safeena doesn’t say anything about it.
Dabeer, who failed in his attempts last time, this time again uses Jahan Ara to execute his plan. The whole incident appears like a coincident when there is a function going in the house and Dabeer asks Shameer for a glass of water and coincidentally Shameer calls Abida to give Dabeer water. Dabeer takes advantage of this situation, he intoxicates her and abducts her by putting her in a sack. He very cleverly takes her in to an abandoned house. Now what he did with her is not shown. It is not shown that he kills her or not.
Again the play also reflects the inefficiency of police who does not facilitate the victims. How the police’s delay in filing an FIR is actually facilitating the criminals. Abida is missing for now and Shehnaz is hysterical. Sania Saeed is exceptional in this week’s episode, you cry with her, you cry for the child and all this just happens while you look at the screen. Also Sonia Hussyn and Mohsin Abbas Haider are brilliant. We praise the actor in Mohsin because to carry off such a despicable role with such conviction and not let the repulse show on your face is very difficult but Mohsin nails it.
To know what happens next with Abida, watch the next episode of Meri Guriya only on ARY Digital, Wednesdays 8pm.
