When Andaz-e-Sitam began a few months ago, we were hooked, mainly because the story Enam Hassan gave us, was quite unusual. Initially, the kidnapper in the play doesn’t rape the victim, he marries her and then carries out the act only to burn proof of their matrimony the very next morning. But with 18 episodes down and the story moving six years ahead, the once exciting plot does not seem to offer anything new lately.
Directed by Ali Hassan and produced by Big Bang Entertainment, this week saw Wamiq (Aagha Ali) trying to get closer to his daughter, whom he saw last week when he was released from jail. He had gone to see Ayat (Kubra Khan), but with her married to Salman (Faris Shafi), Wamiq meets Samar in front of his daughter. This does not go down too well. Obviously the little girl isn’t aware of her relationship with Wamiq so everyone decides to quietly move away from one another.

Coming back to last night’s episode, Ayat and Salman are not on good terms. They talk to one another but not like a couple in love, even after becoming parents. One can tell because of how Salman refers to Ayat as aap.
Wamiq is currently broke, ever since his ex-girlfriend got his mother to have everything put under her name when he was in jail. He’s basically hit rock bottom, but still determined to get to know his daughter. Luckily, he gets a job in the same school as his daughter, Aqadus. He had applied there earlier and didn’t think his daughter would be attending the same school or that he’d end up teaching her class. But fate had its own plans, that end up in Wamiq’s favor.
Ayat is not happy with Wamiq back in their life. She is seen quite tense because she can’t share any information with Salman, in fear he’ll react harshly. Salman has always thought of Aqadus as his own.

Aagha Ali and Kubra Khan continue to perform well in the drama. Though, one actor who needs to experiment with his wardrobe is Faris Shafi, who dons the same look in every play.
We look forward to seeing next week’s episode of Andaz-e-Sitam on Urdu 1 at 8 pm, especially with Wamiq trying to get more involved in his daughter’s life, despite Ayat’s efforts to make sure that doesn’t happen.
