I do update 20 December 2021: Asad is sleeping on the ground while zoya on the bed, both being tied together by handcuffs. In a sharp tug, she falls on him and they share aromantic eyelock. zoys’s notices some silhouettes on the ground and she takes him out to check.
There again, she sees somebody’s shadow but before asad can see, it disappears. Asad doesnt believe her but the commotion wakes up yash who asks him whats the matter. She says what she saw. yash presumes it might be the people who are after them while arti says that it could be some hotel staff too. yash tells them to inform them if anything wrong happens. They then go inside. Seeing them again hand in hand with each other, Yash and arti too think of holding hands and go inside. Meanwhile, prashant, sees this from the shadows and thinks that if due to this girl, he couldnt accomplish his mission tonite, he would see to it that she too would be in trouble.
2.Ayan is shocked at mamu’s descision of humaira and ayan’s marriage. Mamu says that he would have beheaded if it was someone else, but since its him, therefore they are settling on marriage. Razia and mamu says that marriage would definitely happen and that they should this marriage’s preps with nikhat’s only. Ayan is shocked and leaves too.
3.He goes to humaira and sympathises with her saying that now they have to prove people wrong and asks if she knows anything, that could prove to their advantage. When humaira doesnt reply, remembring razia’s threat, ayan says that now they would have to talk to mamu and explain everyone that they dont love each otherc and hence wouldnt want to get married. Humaira is devastated to hear this.
4.Razia is shocked to hear that humaira wants to tell ayan the truth, since he doesnt love her and doesnt want to marry her. She pleads razia that she should not force her as she cant see him living in suffocation. Razia says that its for her benefit and warns her not to say anything, threatening her again. She informs that she would get engaged tomorrow and tries to talk her into it. Humaira is speechless.
5.rashid’s mother tries to talk sense showing him razia’s conspiratorial scheme behind all this. Rashid says that there’s no compulsion and as it is they like each other. She still says that ist juts friendship. He says that what happened between them, is far beyond friendship. She asks him that she shouldnt believe so easily and lose faith in his son. Rashid resigns in saying that there’s no end to this arguement. But she says that he cant bow in front of mamujaan’s wishes, feeling indebted for what he has done for him. She asks him to tell whats the helplessness that forces him to be quiet in front of mamu. But rashid, citing a headache leaves from there. Rashid’s mother thinks that.
6.Ayan tries to talk nikhat and she is surprised to find that he doesnt love humaira and is really not interested in marrying her. Nikhat says that she believe in him but didnt know that he didnt like te idea of marriage. Ayan says that he’s already dicussed with humaira and she is okay with the idea of not getting married. Ayan leaves determined that he wouldnt get married under family pressure, as a punishment for a crime he didnt commit. Nikhat is upset at the tension in the house.
7.When ayan refuses that he wont marry or get engaged today, mamu says that things are beyond the point of discussing, but yet in the limits of his tolerance. Ayan says that they both dont want to get married. Razia says that humaira has said yes, but rashid’s mother says that ayan has said no and treats her as a friend. Razia says that its not a matter of kids’ choice now, but the family’s respect. Ayan defies razia again saying that he wouldnt let them be forcibly married. Razia asks rashid to try and talk to ayan. rashid tries to say that he thought the kids liked wach other. razia says that the descision has been made. Ayan says that even humaira can be called and asked about her wish. He takes them to humaira’s r4oom where everybody is stunned to see humaira sitting in a pool of blood, with her wrists slit.
8.As zoya and asad are about to go out of their room to leave, they are confronted with the villagers along with their sarpanch. Arti and yash too are taken out forcibly from their rooms. The groom says that now they would have their revenge while keeping pistols and swords targeted at them. The sarpanch says that they wouldnt kill them here, but at some other location, where they would torture and kill. When asad and zoya ask them to leave yash, arti and their kids since they are not at fault, the sarpanch says that they had helped asad and zoya and hence would face their wrath now. While they are taking the two couples away, prashant watches this from a distance saying, that now artio would know upto what lenghts a father can go for getting his son back, revealing that he has in fact, kidnapped ansh and takes ansh with him, leaving the girls behind. While the villagers are taking them away, zoya sees somebody taking ansh away from there, but cant see the man’s face.
9.Both the couples are bondaged to a chair. Zoya tells and upsets arti about how she saw ansh’s kidnapping. Arti asks the villagers as to who has taken ansh and they tell her that they dont know anything about it. The villagers threaten them , that they entered their village run by thir rules, and disrupted its working, hence they would now have to face the consequeneces of messing with the functioning of the village. After they leave, asad and yash try to free themselves from the bondages.
10.Meanwhile, in captivity, asad and others are trying to break free from their bondages. They finally succeed but they are in arguement about who gets to runa nd who faces the villagers, while the villagers are approaching towards their room. Zoya finally convinces arti and yash to leave, and they comply. After they leave, the hooligans barge into their room and asad hiding behind the door, fights with all of them and along with zoya, manages to successfully run from there.
11.Zoya and asad try to stop a car but it wizzes past them. Zoya sees ansh in the car and tells asad about it. They are tensed as to how to inform yash about this since they dont have his phone no.
12.Zoya says that she’s scared and unable to run any longer. They settle down for resting for some time. Zoya, out of habit, again starts chattering up much to asad’s discontent. zoya notices somebody in the bushes and is very scared. The man comes out and fires a bullet aiming at their handcuffs.
The person says that its impossible for them to leave without the guidance of someone who knows the way out, hinting at him. Asad asks the reason for him helping them. He says that he has an old score to settle with the panchayat. While zoya sys not to take his help, asad says that they have no other option and starts walking, asking zoya to follow them.
13.The person takes them through the woods, and asking them to stop at a place, says that he would be back soon and help them out further. He gives them water, promising that when he returns, he would get food. while he’s gone, asad and zoya again start bickering about petty issues, as usual, after zoya finishes up the entire pitcher that their guide gave to them, much to asad’s irritation who said no for the time being so that he could drink it later.
14.Zoya is lamenting at the present condition of india and mariam being treated this bad. Asad sarcastically says that he would not be a part of any reform movement, that he plans to bring to india and that he just wants to get out of this safely. Zoya tries to tell her side of the story and mariam’s plight too. But he says that she unnecessarily gets involved with others’ life and puts their lives at stake. He says that he dreams of the day when he would be rid of zoya finally. While saying all this, he notices a red cloth sticking out in the ground. As he pulls at it, he also finds a hand. He remembers the news piece he saw in the tv. He turns around to tell zoya that she was right in not trusting the man and finds her unconscious. As he tries to run carrying her, he is surrounded by the hooligans who have come as the person, they trusted betrayed them. When asad asks how could he do this to them, when he’s dilshad’s relative. He says that what they did coming into their town and defying their rules.
Asad is asked to leave and when he goes to get zoya too, he is told that only he can leave. Asad is shocked to hear this and in his trance, is asked by his mamu to come along with him. He moves with them, while others start burying zoya in the ground. Asad argues that zoya wasnt at fault. His mamu says that she should have let mariam die instead of facing insult in the tribe due to her. He goes on to tell the entire story of mariam and the groom. asad remembers how he had been told many times by zoya to listen to mariam’s side of the story. He turns back to find men digging her grave and he being unable to do anything. His mamu takes him to the main road and asks him to go to bhopal with one of his men, and never turn back to this town.
15.The people take asad to the highway and drop him off there, to take a bus to bhopal. asad still doesnt almost believe whats happening to him. He says to himself that he wont let zoya die like this and runs back into the woods. He runs inside and starts screaming out for zoya. He starts digging random and screaming for zoya. Hew sees yash and arti too in the woods. They together start searching for her. yash finds damp sand and they all start digging there frantically, to find something that shocks them all, zoya’s unconscious and probably dead body.
Location: In the woods in mangalpur
Arti, yash and arti are shocked to find zoya’s hand buried in the ground. They keep digging and finally get zoya out of the ground, but she has gone lifeless and stays limp in asad’s arms while he tries to get her back to breathe. He screams out in rage and terrible sadness. Asad places her on the ground. He warms her hands and tries to pump her heart, but to no avail. Yash and arti too are horrified to see zoya like this and asad all broken down over her. Asad doesnt give up and continues stroking her, addressing her to get up.
Yash and arti try to comfort asad. He places her on the rgound again, and is filled with an overwhelming guilt of having caused her death, and sinks in the ground himself. He gets up and remembers all the times when he had mistreated and talked rudely to her. In his anguish, he hurts his own hands with a thorny branch.
Just then, arti finds zoya breathing low, but breathing yet and informs asad and yash. Aasd rushes upto him and takes her in his arms and kisses her on the forehead, overwhelmed with emotions while yash and arti look on joyously. Zoya opens her eyes, to find herself in asad’s arms and him crying over her, and is surprised. Arti too comforts her and asad, disbelieving what he just witnessed, gets up and starts retreating. Yash follows him and says that he took a long time to tell arti what he felt for her, and he hopes that asad too wouldnt do the same mistake. Arti too advises the same to zoya, describing asad’s tension while she was buried. Zoya tells arti what she saw. arti says that she knows who did all this, and breaks down into tears. Yash comforts her and zoya asks them to leave soon to rescue their son from prashant. They leave.
Zoya then looks at asad, who is at a loss of words himself. He comes upto her while she lowers her gaze. He kneels down beside her, and places a reassuring hand on her shoulder and teary eyed, picks her up while she’s still dozing in and out of consciousness. He carries her in his arms and leaves from there.
Location: Ayan’s residence
Humaira wakes up to find ayan mocking her of being a coward. he tries to cheer her up, while jokingly mocking her that since didnt have the courage to face her family to say no to the marriage and cut off her wrists to escape the scene. He smilingly reprimands her that if she ever tries to do such stupidity ever again, he might change his mind and actually marry him. He is finally able to get a feeble smile on her face.
Razia and mamu, sitting beside humaira’s bed, discuss why she had to do this and didnt event hink about her family. He reprimands himself for being so strict on her, while razia says that he did what he had to, as a father. he says that he would take care now, that he doesnt say anything that might force her to take a step like this ever again. Razia again tries to join humaira’s happiness to ayan’s presenc in her life and instigates mamu to do something regarding that. He leaves thinking deep. After he leaves, humaira, who wasnt sleeping, calls out to razia, who is angry and sad too that she did something so stupid. Humaira is sorry but says that she couldnt see herself and ayan, falsely accused and being forced into a marriage that they dont want. Razia in a nonthreatening tone, tells humaira that they both are too young to realise what they want, hence the descisions should be left on the elders. She firmly tells her daughter not to do anything so stupid ever again and leaves.
Rashid, along with his family, too is discussing the recent turns, the events have taken. Rashid’s mother tries to talk sense into rashid to think about what prompted humaira to take a step like this. Razia barges in saying that her daughter had to take this step due to ayan. she again goes on about her false story of that night and to top it all behaving so rude, the next day, and saying that this is what prompted her to take such a fatal step. Rashid’s mother tries to defy saying that nothing happened between them. Shirin says that she also tried to talk to humaira but she keeps asking for apology. Rashid’s mother says that she might be apologizing for something else. But razia pretends to be shocked that she is scandalized that she could suggest something like that and says that it might be because she is not the mother to a daughter and hence cant empathise with the pain that she’s going through right now. Rashid’s mother again tries to speak but rashid asks her to stop arguing about this anymore.
Razia asks rashid to inform his mother on what have they decided for tomorrow. When she asks what, rashid begins to tell her, while razia starts walking towards the door. Razia,wiping her crocodile tears, is listening to the mother-son conversation intently with a victorious look on her face. The screen freezes on her face.
