Having rarely followed dramas on Express TV in the recent past, “Inteha” came as a pleasant surprise in terms of a distinctive storyline albeit poorly executed.
Produced by the prestigious brand of Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi and directed by Irfan Aslam, “Inteha” aired its first episode this Tuesday at 8.00 pm and it is all about female power and woman empowerment.
Falaknaz (Sumbul Iqbal) serves as the right hand of her father in his extensive business instead of her younger brother Zaeem (Muneeb Butt), who is more interested in being a singer. Consequently, she is egotistical, bossy and self-assured. Their youngest sister, Shehwar (Sanam Chaudhry) is demure and unambitious.
Falak, on the other hand, has her parents, Mr and Mrs. Jawed, eating out of her hands, as they find her to be the beta that their original son failed to be. Every major decision, including the fate of the younger siblings, is decided majorly by Falak, something that irks her only brother Zaeem tediously.
On one of such days, Falak’s father’s health deteriorates suddenly in the middle of the night and Zaeem is unreachable since he has forgotten his cell phone in his car while he is busy jamming with his friends. Falak steps up once more and takes her father to the hospital.
By the next morning, her father recovers considerably and she steps out for her morning walk where she becomes a victim of the wondering eyes of the married Dr. Sheheryar (Farhan Ali Agha), unbeknownst to her.
Dr. Sheheryar’s wife is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs Rafiq (Mahmood Akhter and Semi Pasha), who are family friends with Falak’s parents and they want Falak to be wedded to their younger son, Moid (Junaid Khan).
Unaware of all this, Dr. Sheheryar is shown daydreaming about Falak occasionally, despite being in a happy marriage (men!!). He bumps into Falak once more when she visits the hospital, to collect her father’s reports. He introduces himself and Falak seems quite impressed by his personality.
When her mother talks to her about her marriage to Moid, she refuses flatly saying that her father needs her assistance in the business for now and she can’t abandon him. On her mother’s coercion, she agrees to think about it though stating that she prefers a man with a strong personality and self-confidence.
In sharp contrast to Falak’s no-nonsense attitude, Moid possesses a happy-go-lucky nature, and assists his brother in their business instead of being the front-runner. He is also secretly in love with Falak.
The storyline is definitely quite intriguing though the sheer amount of praise lavished on Falak, in a single episode, got a tad bit annoying because it felt repetitive and tiresome.
The acting of the entire crew was commendable. Sumbul Iqbal’s portrayal of the rigid Falak was pretty convincing. She got the attitude and facial expressions right but her dialogue delivery lacked the effortlessness that some of the other actresses posses.
All in all, it will be interesting to watch the progression of the drama to see how Falak gels in with her in-laws considering her dominating nature and her reaction to Moid’s boyish demeanour. And more importantly what role will Dr.Sheheryar play in all this.
