I do 29TH NOVEMBER 2021: Asad comes home in the evening.But finding zoya absent,assk nazma and is told that she is out.he looks at the watch.And comments on it being 8:30 and she being still out of the house.Dilshad asks him about his day,he comments that the account head of his company told him that his would be wife ran away on the day of marriage.Both dilshad and nazma scared hearing this.Dilshad tries top defend but asad says that there’s a time for everything and that if she had to say anything she cud have done that sooner. Then the groom’s side wouldnt have been the laughing stock of the town today.Just then,the doorbell rings and nazma opens the door to let in zoya who wishes everybody gudevening but asad replies back that its better to say good night looking at the time.He tells her that they dont inturde into what she does and whom she meets in the day and therefore she should reciprocate the respect by following atleast one rule of the house while she’s here and that is to be back in the house before 7p.m.
Before zoya can even justify herself,he excuses himself saying good night. Zoya looks at dilshad with discontentment but she tells her to have dinner instead of worrying over what he said.In the middle of the night,when zoya is sleeping,she wakes up screaming,after seeing a nightmare involving a burning house and with the voice of a girl screaming for help.Nazma,asad and dilshad come running.Dilshad comes upto her and tells her not to worry on a bad dream as they are all with her.She calms down.On dilshad’s signal,asad and nazma leave.She stays back with zoya trying to talk her fear out but zoya says that she’s fine and retires for the night.While switching off the light,dilshad sees a scar of a wound on zoya’s hand and demands to know about it.But zoya ccovers it up and makes an excuse. Dilshad leaves.
Outside dilshad tries to convince asad of zoya’s innocence but asad doesnt seem to believe citing that the reason for his anger is not her wearing jenas but the way she flouts everything indian culture entails and therefore he wants her to be out of the house before she can influence nazma’s thinking.Asad leaves.While the girls are playing,ayan butts in bringign coffee for everybody and then on winning a round of the game proposes that they now have to see a movie of his liking since he won,thereby sparking off a debate of english movies versus hindi movies.Finally they agree to see a film of humaira’s choice.Nikhat tells him not to get an evening ticket as she’s expecting her in laws in the evening.She is teased but amidst th fun and banter,nuzrat realises that ayan has forgotten to get gifts for the guests and he scurries off.While discussing work strategy with his team,asad receives a fax from ayan which,when he picks up ayan’s call,finds out is the list of gifts for nikhat’s in laws’ who are coming in the evening and since he forgot aqnd has just two hours left,has been given the task of completing the shopping by then.Before asad can say anything,ayan cuts off the phone after emotionally blackmailing him to do the same.
Nazma looking at the photo that zoya gave her,tries to find out the building of which the photo is,and makes 8 guesses each doubting the previous one that she was so sure of.Finally she gives in and gives the photo back to zoya apologizing for not being able to accurately determine.Zoya thanks her for whatever lead she gave her.Nazma asks zoya what did she have a nightmare about.She is about to tell her the story when she checks herself and makes up an excuse of being interested in old buildings. Dilshad while looking at her rack of casettes,reviving old memories,picks one up and when she puts it back,disturbs the whole line and they fall off the rack.She looks at them strewn on the floor and again picks on eup and plays it in the music system.As the song starts,she is taken back to the time when she and rashid were together and has tears in hr eyes.
Shirin and razia are getting ready for receiving the guests.Razia takes this oppurtunity to tell shirin tht she should never ever mention about dilshad,rashid’s second wife to nikhat’s in laws’ or the fact that he has 5 children instead of five.Shirin again innocently asks why and wouldnt that be wrong.Razia is frustrated but convinces her that they should never know about dilshad and second she should never let rashid meet dilshad.Shirirn has a confused look on her face.The screen freezes on her face. Mamujaan and rashid enter the house talking among themselves.seeing ayan,maamu calls him and enquires about the gifts.he takes one small packet out of his pocket and starts to give an explanation to them,but before his ji is up,two servants come in carrying lots of gift packets.He gets confidence when he sees asad’s message on his mobile confirming that he has sent the gifts.Rashid and mamujaan too are happy and leave from there.
Asad calls up ayan to tell him that he didnt get the time to check each gift as he had to hurry up in shopping.Ayan says that he would do it an thanks him for being there for him ass his elder brother.Asad tells him not to waste time and go look at the preparations.Ayan coments that it would have been so perfect if she knew that her brother,asad brought these for her but she would never know.Asad tells him not to talk about stuff thats impossible.Ayan goes over to the girls’ who are busy packing the gifts and says that he is too tired to help them pack and tells them to move faster.Humaira oblivious to ayan’s presence comes in showing off her new jeans but seeing ayan is embarrasesed.Ayan takes this oppurtunity to mock her and goes out.Humaira who is in tears is comforted by nikhat and nuzrat about ayan’s behaviour being immature and not to mind what he says.The people are receiving the guests with sweets and snacks and talking to each other with small cribbing andleg pulling ggoing on between rashid’s mothr and razia.The men enter and ayan is instructed by mamu to get the gifts for them.He goes in and gets them.
Rashid gives the gift to imran.He drops one by mistake and is helped by nikhat leading to their first eye lock.Shirin introduces nikhat to imran’s sister.Haseena ben as usual asks nikhat if sh liked the gifts and particularly the fairness creams and whther she started applying them so that the effect shows within6 weeks.Nikhat is hurt and everybody else paricularly ayan is again angry at this comment. When razia asks everybody to open their gifts,Hassena takes a look and walks of saying that she has seen enough and doesnt want to stay anymore and asks her husband and son to gt up and leave along with her,while nikhat’s family is trying to find out what did they do to hurt her like this. Razia continuously prays to her to tell what was their mistake.As usual she begins with a superiority complex about her son gtting world class offers fro marriage,but they settling for a dark complexioned girl,nikhat only because razia was involved but they wont be insulted and goes on to show the price tag left on her gift.Razia immediately apologizes,but mamujaan enters and says the guilty would be punished not forgiven.He demands to know whose fault it was,the sisters says that they were responsible for packing the gifts and must have made a fault.But ayan,to save her sisters,takes the blame on him and is asked by rashid to apologize to haseena which he does.
Her ego having been satiated,she returns to her charming self that she is not on who creates a drama for something so petty after having done just the same.Ayan is infuriated at her but doesnt say anything.Rashid’s mother too comments on it being not that big a deal but is shushed by razia saying she never finds her grandson at fault.Zoya sits on the bed in despair wondering why is god not helping her in her quest for the truth that has landed her in India all the way from New York.She looks at the wound on her hand and thinks that the wound isnt just on the hand but on her heart as well,for her whole life.Her search would end only when she meets her father,one who she has never seen.Ayan narrates the happening of the day to asad while telling him about how vicious and cunning and egoist is nikhat’s future mother in law and how she harps on the slightest possibility of putting them down.Ayan questions why should they always bow down to her.Asad replies coz who dont they break and they are after all the bride’s side.
Rashid is being explained the same by mamujaan that ayan’s carelessness and immaturity would cost them their respect in the society one day and still cant believe how he could have been so careless as leaving a price tag on the gift meant for the groom’s side.He says with regret that he cant understand how in his house,a boy so immature,so ill mannered and so irresponsible as ayan could grow who cares for nobody.Ayan says that he cares for nikhat more than anything else in the world.And thereforre sensing that she is happy with imrana nd likes him,he doesnt say anything.But revolts the fact that they have to be quiet on any issue just because they happen to be the bride’s side.And that haseena always keeps hinting at her dark complexion and puts her down.Asad says that if they have to bow down just for nikhat’s happiness then that is too less a price to pay for her sister’s lifetime happiness.Mamujaan says that no price can pay for their respect in the society.He fears that one day ayan would day somethign that would forever stain their respect in the society.rashid says that its his son and he wouldnt do anything like thsi.Mamujann says thats what he fears and tells him to never let the truth out about dilshad and asad in front of haseena.Also guarantee that ayan breaks off al relations with him. Asad on the other hand is told that he cant stay for one day without meeting him,ayan.He tells ayan to stop being sentimental and look after the preps in the house.
