"You should be more understanding, iss tara marriages kaam nahi karti Sania" -Rabia.
As Rabia hears Sania telling her that although Zafar is an "extremely handsome husband", he's"laidback, has no ambition", Rabia says the above line to her. Sania doesn't expect Rabia to tell her this, jiski khudki marriage successful nahi rahi woh kaisey kisi aur ko nasiyat dera hai. No advice for me says Sania and with that, a hurt and upset Rabia decides to leave Lahore.
Sania sees a group of friends conversing and there she realizes how much she's hurt Rabia. We also realize that time goes by fast, friends stay behind or if they are still with you, the quality time you have spent with them has passed by. What's great is that Sania apoligizes to Rabia and so Rabia decides to come back.
For a change, Sania herself plans to have dinner in a nice restaurant with her very sweet husband Zafar. Yay for the change!
The next scene is very cute and annoying at the same time. While Sania is talking to a doctor about getting on board for her new clinic plan, Zafar is watching tv - both of these things are happening in the same room. Having such a big home, Sania could've talked in another room - this is the annoying part. However, the way Zafar is laughing while watching tv was definitely the cutest scene I have seen of him.
Sania then breaks the news to Zafar -she's decided to resign from the hospital as she plans to open a new clinic. Zafar gets upset as he says: "You are never satisfied, you want more and more and more". However, still supports her.
We see Abeer and Aman's slight dislike for their mother. They draw a really bad picture of how they see Sania as and as Bajjo sees this, she tells them to never do such a thing again. The strict behavior of Sania on her kids is surely having a bad effect on them.
The episode ends with a brand new clinic being opened. It was really heart-warming to see that the clinic is called Maimoona Memorial Hospital, after Sania's mother. Wish Dr. Ashraf could be there. While Rabia is the marketing head and brings in the funds to run the clinic, Sania decides to talk to consultant doctors. She also plant to open up a specialized unit that works on bone marrow transplant surgery and on the disease her mother died with - leukemia.
Episode 11 highlights:
-Abeer is told by her teacher to be more confident.
-Dr. Ashraf, who is now Uncle Mahmood says a very beautiful thing about old age. “Burrappa aik acchi cheez hoti hai, purani yaad ko taaza karti hai”. Old age is seen in a negative light as old people don’t get much attention but Uncle Mahmood highlights something about old age which we may have not thought about: in old age, one thinks about the fun times in life, about the wonderful memories shared by family and friends.
-Uncle Mahmood wants Sania to give more attention to kids, “uske mahnati honey say khauf aata hai”.
-Sania is unnecessarily troubling Zafar on being “laidback” when infact he has a great job; he is a good father and a good husband.
-Abeer is worried that her teacher will tell Zafar about Abeer’s lack of confidence and so she and Aman pray that this won’t happen - a very cute scene takes place in which Abeer wraps around her and Aman a comforter to use as a scarf for their dua.
-Zafar gets a training opportunity in Germany for 2 yrs, he can get a promotion but Zafar wants to give time to his family. Sania on hearing this might let Zafar go to Germany.
-Abeer is really hurt by the “good for nothing” Sania said to Abeer, Sania’s discouragement has really upset Abeer, Zafar consoles her that“she’s the best”.
- Super sweet scene – Zafar’s birthday celebration –yay Sania was there to celebrate!
-Uncle Mahmood says “yeh jo ghosht-phost ka insaan hai, yeh rooh kay bagair kuch bhi nahi… Sania iss baat ko nahi samajhti nahi... usney apne aap ko robot banadiya hai” while Zafar replies “aap mujey aik baap nahi, pareshaan maa lagrey hai”.
-Uncle Mahmood: “har insaan mai aik maa aur baap chupa hota hai” which I totally agree with – both spouses should have mother and father like qualities and Zafar is a true example of that. He is not only there to partially provide financial support but also there to provide time and support to his kids. However, can we really blame the busy Sania?
- Dr. Azhar Siddiqui – new transplant physician makes his entry- who is actually the director of Rung Ali Tahir and there the episode ends. Let’s see what changes if any he will make to Sania’s life. Will Sania be influenced by Dr. Azhar as he is a successful doctor while her husband is “laidback”? What do you guys think?
There we have another two episodes light as a phulki roti , no tensions yet. A sweet and supporting husband - Zafar, a strong willed wife - Sania, an understanding mother-in-law - Bajjo --- a fresh script by Amna Malhi and Maliha Haider and smooth direction by Ali Tahir - Keep it up Team Rung!
