Makafaat reminds us to think twice before harming someone else

Our belief in death, the afterlife and accountability discourages us from malicious deeds. However, it is also believed that some people are destined to face makafaat-e-amal even before the afterlife.

What we have here with Makafaat’s second season is a variety of fictional stories that speak volumes, making us reflect on our attitude towards people and the way we perceive life.

Producer duo Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi sought inspiration from the ‘what goes around, comes around’ dictum about life. The overwhelming response to Makafaat’s first season encouraged them to work on the second season which compliments Geo’s ‘Ehsaas Ramzan’ transmission.

The drama series shows how our willful actions influenced by negative virtues such as greed, envy, ego, selfishness, dishonesty, disloyalty, and other traits take a toll on us sooner or later in life.

Makafaat recently brought us a tale of hypocrisy, malice, misogyny, lust and the inability to fear the consequences of such actions in the episode ‘Nadamat’, which shows a brother who places several restrictions on his sister but is involved in many corrupt activities himself.

When we think of what makes it difficult for people to trust each other, this episode really helps us connect the dots. Ali Ansari essays the role of Junaid, who finds it difficult to let his sister out because he fears someone as immodest as him will take benefit of her. His ill intentions towards his sister’s friend make him doubt the society even more.

He goes to the extent of bribing his friend, Shahbaz, to befriend Alina’s friend and trap her in his house. What Junaid comes across as, should serve as a reality check for the audience, especially when his own deeds come back to haunt him.

The writer, Huma Hina Nafees, then worked on the elements on greed, envy, covetousness, heedlessness and hatred in another story ‘Cousins’ which showed us the ugly side of sabotaging another person’s happiness.

This episode makes us think of the unfair reality of life where the victim is made to suffer only to teach a lesson to those at fault. Namrah Shahid plays the role of an innocent girl who is divorced soon after her wedding when her cousin creates a trap, so she can marry the man who was to be her husband. Fate however does not take long to give her a taste of her own medicine.

Makafaat is directed by Saleem Ghanchi who helmed this 7th Sky Entertainment presentation last year as well— making the moral-based series speak volumes through a silver screen.

Makafaat airs every day at 7:00 PM as part of Geo TV’s ‘Ehsaas Ramzan’ transmission.
