What does it take to be Sardar Saif Ur Rehman?

Over a decade and a half, 7TH Sky Entertainment has raised its curtains on various fictional characters which actually take root from the society we belong to.

One one hand, the production powerhouse condemns acid spilling, workplace harassment, unfounded accusations, abduction and other human tragedies in its drama serials. On another, it drives the audience through similar journeys that help them identify those black sheeps early on.

Featuring Faysal Qureshi as an antagonist, Muqaddar introduced the audience to Sardar Saif Ur Rehman, a fictional character known to be an influential feudal lord and a philanthropist. Seeing how far he has come with his abuse of power, we really wonder if there was anything Raima could have done differently in the beginning so Sardar Saif wouldn’t have set his eyes on her in the first place. Sadly, it seems the answer is no.

For even a highly professional person like Raima (a young character played by Madiha Imam), it became apparent that one cannot really do much to save themselves from a person who is sick to the core. Seeing her get abducted by Sardar Saif’s goons, even her strict work ethics and commitment to her fiancé (played by Ali Ansari) could not save her from a man as selfish as Sardar Saif.

Although every influential character comes with some weakness, Sardar Saif doesn’t seem to ever get vulnerable. With 18 episodes so far, the writer Iqbal Bano has shown how he feels more invincible with each day that passes.

His soft corner for his Raima doesn’t give her the liberty to change his mind. His immense love and freedom for his daughter Abeera (Saboor Aly) doesn’t give her the power to break her engagement with her cousin Saad (Haroon Shahid). Although Sardar Saif felt his family was incomplete in Saad’s absence at a recent family dinner, another scene revealed how he didn’t hesitate to put Saad in his place when he questioned his second marriage. Then it’s also pretty ironic how Sardar Saif’s servants get to see him more often than his first wife does.

With the recent episode, Sardar Saif has controlled Raima’s emotions to a point that despite seeing her former fiancé, Haris (Ali Ansari) in her dreams, she tries to brush away all her feelings. Her only wish is to remain loyal to Sardar Saif. As miserable her life could get, Sardar Saif goes on to say that she is bound to fall in love with him. Despite the fact that she told him earlier how love is never planned; his aggression further leads her to convince herself that she has to fall in love with him at any cost.

For once, even we are convinced that this year is lucky for Sardar Saif at least. Especially when Raima and Sardar Saif run into Haris again, the news about him getting married to his neighbor was enough to jolt Raima—leaving a slight smirk on Sardar Saif’s face.

Abeer’s mother, who had the guts to pay a newspaper to run a fake scandal against Hassan to separate him from her daughter, stands helpless when it comes to the situation her husband has put her in. As for Hassan, his mother is planning to marry him off to his cousin, hoping that will help him forget Abeera.

It seems that there isn’t anyone strong enough in this scenario to tackle Sardar Saif Ur Rehman. Which brings us to think. Will Raima really spend a lifetime with her half-hearted appreciation for Sardar Saif? Or is an unexpected turn of event going to teach Sardar Saif a lesson?
