Muqaddar piques our curiosity with a forced marriage and huge age gap

Drama serial Muqaddar introduced us to a unique storyline about the dark side of immense wealth and influence when it premiered two months ago. The story which revolves around a feudal lord who forcibly marries a girl of his daughter’s age Raima, recently picked up pace.

With a dozen episodes that showed versatile actor Faysal Qureshi portray the stubborn personality of Sardar Saif Ur Rehman – who believes he can acquire anything he sets his eyes upon – the drama serial has moved on to another climax and is now focused on the emotions of every individual in the story. This 7th Sky Entertainment presentation by the duo Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi has given us a story in which every other character will eventually turn into a rebel and Sardar Saif Ur Rehman will be seen putting everyone in their place.

The audience has already seen Raima’s fiancé Haris (Ali Ansari) face the consequences of going against Sardar Saif. His brutal beating in Sardar Saif’s torture cell goes hand in hand with emotionally blackmailing Raima (Madiha Imam), making her picture the worst scenario if either of the two lovers go against him again. Given that Raima had anticipated marrying her cousin Haris for a long time, this is a real test of their patience and resilience.

A few recent episodes brought us a roller coaster of emotions, helplessness, heartbreak and aggression when Raima takes the blame for marrying for wealth, only to makes it easier for Haris to move on. At the same time the audience’s hearts aches for Haris, as rejection and comparison are poison for anyone who truly loves someone.

Seeing a glimpse of Raima when she visits his house reignites his rage for Sardar Saif. Fearless and ignited inside, Haris storms to Sardar Saif’s house where his first wife lives, only to return home more furious than ever. The scene in which Sardar Saif’s first wife doesn’t shed a single tear upon hearing that her husband has married another woman truly shocks the audience — instead, she adds insult to injury and lies to Haris that Sardar Saif married again with her permission.

Ali Ansari’s dialogue delivery brings value to the scene when his character expresses his frustration to his family, asking how can a woman have so much patience? This brings us to Sardar Saif’s first wife, who is someone who tries to hold everything together and does not tolerate any attack on her family’s honour. Despite her unconditional love, she does not receive the same attention from her husband who wears his heart on his sleeves when it comes to Raima. She has, however, learned a thing or two about putting people in their place, from her husband. Although her inconsiderate daughter, Abeera, openly disrespects her and breaks her engagement with her cousin, Saad, the mother does not tolerate any violation of the house rules.

We have the rebellious Abeera (Saboor Aly) who falls in love for the first time. She is adamant that she will only marry Hassan, who impresses her shortly after entering her life. Her fiancé, Saad, who fails to find Raima after her abduction, is now more focused on where he stands in Abeera’s life.

Director Shehrazade Sheikh has helped Faysal Qureshi play the challenging character of Sardar Saif Ur Rehman, who is a doting dad to Abeera on one hand, but has no concern for her mother. He is gentle with Raima as long as she is obedient and becomes a threat to anyone who crosses the boundary, in this drama serial scripted by Iqbal Bano.
