Aik Thi Rania
Quran Sab Ke Liye
Tu Mera Junoon
Shees Aur Allama Sb.
Drama series Makafaat tells stories of fate’s connection with our deeds, showing how people are often held accountable for their willful actions even before the afterlife.
This masterwork comes from the producing powerhouse 7th Sky Entertainment which released Makafaat’s second season earlier this Ramzan, capturing how negative emotions take a toll on us when we refuse to have empathy.
Makafaat captured the essence of a toxic relationship in its recent episode ‘Shak’, in which a woman spends a lifetime bearing her husband’s baseless accusations. As Rabia lives on with endless compromises, her daughter Nida, also begins to misunderstand the whole concept of marriage. Looking at her parents’ marriage, she assumes that such torment is a part of marriage and a successful marriage is only one that lasts forever.
Her parents never show her that a successful marriage resolves conflicts with communication, compassion, reasoning, forgiveness and most importantly, teamwork. Their daughter instead goes on to believe that the only resolution to conflict is silence.
Naeem’s mistrust towards his wife backfires when his beloved daughter Nida falls prey to domestic violence in her new married life. The episode closes with a hard-hitting realization when Naeem’s daughter blames him for the suffering. Director Saleem Ghanchi captures the moment with intense dialogue delivery where Nida tells her father, “Yehi tou makafaat-e-amal hai Abba, shak ka jo beej aap ne boya tha, uski fasal aap ki beti kaat rahi hai.”
Domestic abuse has always been a problem in Pakistan. This episode prompts us to think of those vulnerable spouses who bear domestic abuse for years because they have mistaken the idea of ‘compromise’ with endless suffering and assault. Writer Anwar Gillani has scripted this sad reality of the many marriages we see in our surrounding, with great skill.
Makafaat airs every day at 7:00 PM as part of Geo TV’s ‘Ehsaas Ramzan’ transmission.
