Saife Hassan’s magnum opus Ehd-e-Wafa is all set to treat its fans with a big-screen experience for its finale episode on 14th March, Saturday at selected cinema halls across the country and then again the following day for the television audience. Being one of the most ambitious projects in recent memory, the show has managed to shine bright despite overwhelming competition from the likes of Meray Paas Tum Ho and Alif.
Right from its announcement to what is a much-awaited conclusion, the serial has kept the newswire running, be it its supposed similarity with Alpha Bravo Charlie, the star-studded ensemble cast boasting of names such as Ahad Raza Mir, Osman Khalid Butt, Ahmed Ali Akbar, Wahaj Ahmed, Zara Noor Abbas, Alizeh Shah, and Hajra Yamin, or its multi-layered narrative with interesting sub-plots.
Recently the drama has been trending on social media for a series of emotionally charged sequences such as the one between Shehryar (Ahmed Ali Akbar) and Khursheed (Muhammad Humbal) in jail as well as the one featuring Saad (Ahad Raza Mir) and Dua (Alizeh Shah). The penultimate episode too was also high on emotions with Osman Khalid Butt’s Shahzain owning up to his grandfather and Shehryar about his mistakes.
The action-packed trailer of the finale episode was released by the makers about two weeks back, catching everyone by surprise with the featured guest appearance by superstar Humayun Saeed. Going by feedback on social media, the preview generated much positive buzz and naturally has us all excited to grab our popcorn to watch the concluding act unfold on the big screen.
Here’s everything we are excited about and needless to say, we do expect quite a bit…
Saad’s LOC experience
One of the major highlights of the finale episode will be Saad’s war combat sequence. It has already been much in the news lately for the question on the mind of every fan of the show i.e. “Will he die?” The ardent viewers of the play are waiting with bated breath to see whether Saad survives the war turmoil. The trailer, which concludes with Saad leaving for Kashmir, showcases some grand action-packed visuals which are said to have been shot with a hefty budget. Dua’s track will also be tied to Saad’s story arc takes.
Rani and Shahzain’s camaraderie
The teaser shows Rani and Shahzain sharing some light moments together which builds up the hope of them providing this high on emotions episode with some relief and humor. Zara Noor Abbas has been appreciated for making Rani a very relatable character and for never going overboard with her expressions since she provides the play with comic relief. Shahzain had the best scenes in the second last episode and hence it will be interesting to see what more does his character has to offer.
Shehryar’s final moment with Masooma
In the previous episode, we see Shariq pressing Shehryar to reciprocate Masooma’s romantic feelings for him. He even offers to be the mediator between the two but Shehryar dodges the conversation. The teaser promises Shehryar and Masooma’s reunion although there might be an emotionally charged monologue by Masooma involved.
Masooma’s character thus far has been successful in receiving viewer’s empathy and hence a lot of the viewers are rooting for a happy ending for Masooma and Shehryar.
The twist in the tale is that Masooma hints at a wedding that her parents are planning for her, making things a bit more intriguing.
So, will they end up together or won’t they? We have our fingers crossed.
Shariq was shown being appreciated by his boss for his contribution to his channel’s success and it will be amusing to see if Shariq has something in store for fans who can’t wait for him and Ramsha to be together. Shariq’s journalism credentials might also come into play as the play wrap’s up Saad’s fate with the war combat scenes.
‘Surprise Nahi Shock Dena Hai’
The drama has churned out many interesting one-liners, such as Surprise Nahi Shock Dena Hai. The teaser had this winner of a line penned by the drama’s acclaimed writer, Mustafa Afridi. This line has been trending on social media ever since the trailer is out and it also promises shocking content for its viewers in more ways than one.
Considering that the team has gone for a theatrical release, a few surprise sequences are definitely in-store and we just can’t wait anymore. Something to surely watch out for will be how Abhinandan and Humayun Saeed’s character fit into the plot.
Seems like the finale has literally all of the play’s characters’ fate riding on it. We are quite sure this one is going to be a nail-biter, packing in quite a bit more than its trailer gives a glimpse of. Let the countdown begin…
