Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha Ends on A Happy Note; Do the Fans Feel the Same?

MPHT ending

With a melodious soundtrack, some romantic, some (too) melodramatic moments, Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha surpassed expectations as it not only garnered millions of views but also trended in the country.  

A production by Fahad Mustafa and Dr. Ali Kazmi under Big Bang Entertainment, ARY Digital’s Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha grew to popularity for its dynamic casting of the lead trio of Wahaj Ali, Hania Aamir, and Zaviyar Nauman. The starring Wahaj Ali and Hania Aamir, both of whom have an undeniable strong fan base, alongside the integration of one of nation’ biggest hit singles Kahani Suno by Kaifi Khalil as its original soundtrack, the makers did a job well done to create significant buzz around the drama.  

Th efforts did not go to vain as the first episode of Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha has 45 milllion views on YouTube, as of now. Seven months down the line and with thirty-two episodes in, Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha continued to enjoy its popularity with a few bumps in the road.  

Before we dissect the reason for what made the drama stand on the pedestal it is now, let’s delve into the last episode.  

Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha wraps on a high note

The last episode begins with a banger as fans finally see the much-awaited scene where Maheer finds her voice and courage to refuse Areeb. Saad also takes a stand for his wife as he receives his bail.  

An elated audience couldn’t be more grateful to see things heading towards a conclusion but, alas, their happiness did not last long and the drama headed towards an anticlimax.  

Instead of seeing some Saad-Maheer scenes on-screen, the last episode was dedicated to Areeb, his sulkiness, and his path to redemption.  

The only saving grace was the last few minutes of the episode where the viewers saw some awe-worthy moments of their favourite couple, as they sat together relishing their time together with each other. The cute banter followed by the declaration of his love by Saad had the audience thrilled.  

However, we could not help but wish to see Maheer confessing her feelings to Saad as well, after all the poor guy deserved that at least.  

Nevertheless, the drama is done and dusted, concluding on a scene we hoped to see a few episodes early.  

Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha: Another run-of-the-mill story or something more?  

Written by Sidra Imran and directed by Badar Mehmood, the drama follows the story of a girl Maheer (Hania Aamir) who is a free spirit. Her parents aim for her to live a comfortable luxurious life. We are also introduced to the character of Saad (Wahaj Ali) who is Maheer’s cousin and is in love with him.  

At a friend’s engagement Maheer is introduced to Areeb (Zaviyar Nauman Ijaz) who falls for her. The story progresses as Maheer and Areeb develop feelings for each other and eventually decide to marry. However, at the wedding day Areeb’s father has a heart attack and due to confusion and anarchy that follows after Abeer doesn’t show up, Maheer is married off to Saad. 

Following the radical shift in Maheer and Saad’s life, Saad spares no effort to please Maheer and to make her comfortable in her new home and life. However, problems continue to unfold as Saad fails to catch a breath after Areeb returns in Maheer’s life.  

The saga continues as misery befalls Saad and Maheer refuses to accept him as her husband. The story goes around in a circle, agitating the viewers who wait to see a turn of events in the favour of Saad.  

In addition, we have seen this plot countless times integrated in our narratives where the bride or groom are married to a different person, to safe face, when their partner cannot make it to the wedding due to some confounding confusion created in the drama. This addition to create a plot twist has become tiring to see for most viewers.  

Saad: The destitute figure of Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha 

The character of Wahaj Ali as Saad is portrayed to be a spineless character who is hopelessly in love with his cousin, and in his attempts to please her, he forgets that he has other duties and responsibilities.  

Furthermore, essaying Saad as a defeated man who can never catch a break as misery befalls him, whether it is emotional or financial, creates a frustrated experience for the viewer who wish to see Saad fight his problems. Instead, he replaces the stereotypical female protagonist in our dramas who does not voice her opinions.  

That being said, we also have to mention that Wahaj Ali did an impeccable job in playing his role, as he was able to deliver the emotions of Saad eloquently on screen and his body language reflected Saad’s character.  

Notable performances: 

Perhaps the saving grace of the drama was its cast. Firstly, audience appreciated Hania Aamir and Zaviyar Nauman’s on-screen chemistry in the initial episodes, especially after watching them together on-screen in Sang-e-Mah.  

Moreover, Hania Aamir and Wahaj Ali were also able to create a great on-screen chemistry and the audience craved for them to have more time together on-screen.  

Rabya Kulsoom also won hearts as Saad’s sister Neelo. Rabya played the role of Neelo with all her heart and delivered an exceptional performance. 

The rest of the cast also did a good job. The cast members included Shahood Alvi, Salma Hassan, Angeline Malik, Noor-ul-Hassan, Shaheen Khan, Malaikah, Ambar Khan, Sabeena Syed, Ayesha Mirza, and Washma Fatima. 

To conclude, Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha was able to entertain the audience by amalgamating strong performances and a star cast that made the drama top charts and be among the most popular currently airing dramas. While the story might seem ordinary to some, others enjoyed it thoroughly.
