“Ishq Zahe Naseeb” is one of those trend-setting dramas that continues to win over its audience with a beautiful story of unlucky lovers that have hit a large road bump in their lives together. 22 episodes down, we have seen Sami Khan (Kashif) struggle with moving on with his fiancée Zarnish Khan (Donia), while Sonya Hussyn (Gohar) and Zahid Ahmed’s (Sameer) marriage is set to take place. However, a major twist is coming in Gohar’s life, one that she hadn’t really anticipated.
So what went down in episode 22 of Sonya Hussyn and Zahid Ahmed starrer Ishq Zahe Naseeb, this week? Read on to find out;
The episode kicks off featuring Zahid Khan (Sameer) and Sonya Hussyn (Gohar) getting married. Sameer is once again thinking about all of his complexes, misjudging Gohar for getting married to him because of his wealth. Even though these things are shown to be coming from the hallucinations of his dead wife, Yumna Zaidi (Sameera), in reality, these are Sameer’s own feelings which he channels out.
Sameer is seen being berated by Sameera over and over until he finally succumbs to her power on his wedding night. Gohar waits for Sameer to enter the room and, in a particularly shocking and miserable scene, Gohar is introduced to Sameer’s alter ego Sameera. This is the scene of the night with brilliant acting by Sonya Hussyn.
As Gohar stares at her new husband entering the room and gets a clear view of him, in full makeup and dupatta, the expressions given by Sonya pull the viewer’s heart up their throat and we’re undoubtedly blown away with her expressions. The disbelief, confusion and just pure shock is mirrored on Sonya’s face in a way that can only be described as real and priceless. Seeing, her go through so much in one episode – love, happiness, self-doubt, heartbreak and then, ultimately, getting introduced to the other side of Sameer i.e. Sameera and letting it destroy her wedding night, one can’t help but feel for her.
A special mention of the acting prowess Sonya Hussyn effortlessly flaunts is awe-inspiring. Gohar is a character that, despite wanting Sameer to know the reality of his life, one wish could get a happy ending. All in all, this is one of our favorite episodes of ‘Ishq Zahe Naseeb’.
With the previews showing Sameera threatening Gohar’s life, this end seems to be approaching soon enough. We just can’t wait to see the next episode!
