Pyar Ke Sadqay Episode 9: Abdullah and Mehjabeen Begin Their Married Life Together
Bilal Abbas Khan and Yumna Zaidi play Abdullah and Mehjabeen in “Pyar Ke Sadqay,” two characters that wind up married in a twist of circumstances
Episode 9 of “Pyar Ke Sadqay” follows Mehjabeen (Yumna Zaidi) and Abdullah’s (Bilal Abbas Khan) newlywed moments now that the two are married. Marriage isn’t an easy transition and it’s even more difficult to get used to when the decision was a spontaneous one. While the show was initially criticized for various things such as unequal screen time and overly long comedic sequences that did not add to the storyline, the story has now picked up to a place where viewers are very happy with the show.
As the episode opens, after hearing Abdullah’s conversation with Shanzay (Yashma Gill), Mehjabeen quietly cries, prompting Abdullah to apologize for his words. Later, the conversation turns to Abdullah’s education. When Abdullah answers Mehjabeen’s “impossible” math questions with ease, Mehjabeen is floored and instantly begins praising Abdullah and showing him respect. It’s clear that Mehjabeen is attracted to intelligence and after this display, Mehjabeen has given her heart to Abdullah – which is both adorable and hilarious at the same time. As Mehjabeen and Abdullah navigate through this new relationship, several cute and downright hilarious sequences are shown as both Mehjabeen and Abdullah’s families get to spend time with the couple. By the end of the episode, Mehjabeen has whisked Abdullah away with her family on a mission to “recover” the items stolen by her ex-fiance, which promises to be a wildly entertaining scene next week. On the other end, Sarwar (Omair Rana) continues to plot his future and, supported by his mother (Gul E Rana), how to throw Mansoora (Atiqa Odho) to the side while still holding on to her finances.
The way Bilal Abbas Khan plays Abdullah is so genuine. Abdullah feels real, he’s the boy you want to protect – and yet, he has stepped in to protect Mehjabeen. His reactions towards Mehjabeen are all over the place as he’s attracted to her in moments and, at other times, he’s thinks she’s completely brainless and through all this, Bilal reacts solely through his expressions. While it was initially a question of why Bilal Abbas Khan took this role, now it’s clear and viewers are overjoyed that Bilal took such a role that displays his talent to this level. Yumna Zaidi continues to be a laugh riot in episode 9. While Mehjabeen is more than just “innocent,” she’s simply too dim to be real, she is a character that makes the viewer laugh uncontrollably with her silly antics. Yumna is doing a great job in this slightly crazy, goofy role and Mehjabeen keeps the viewers (and other characters) on their toes.
Maybe it’s because of the coronavirus quarantine, but this episode of “Pyar Ke Sadqay” offered much-needed laughter and relief. The chemistry between Abdullah and Mehjabeen is so sweet and innocent, they are a couple viewers are rooting for and want to protect. And protection they will need once Sarwar realizes what has happened and begins to target Mehjabeen under the same roof. For now, this show continues to be a joy to watch.
