Tonight, Mere Pass Tum Ho came to an end. The first 20 minutes of this special episode were devoted to rehashing the previous 22 episodes. This recap was well-crafted, but a commercial break immediately following the recap was not the ideal way to kick off the most eagerly anticipated final episode of Mere Pass Tum Ho. I must admit that I was anticipating this final episode to be spectacular, but there were very few memorable moments or discussions in the first 20 minutes. We’ve seen a lot more powerful episodes of Mere Pass Tum Ho than this one. Because of the overall execution, the ending was anticipated but not as impactful as intended.
The most dramatic part in this episode came at the end, but it didn’t work for me at all. Which doctor would allow a patient like him to remove his oxygen mask and converse with a child? Rumi was the one character I felt sorry for — poor kid, he’d already been through so much, and now he’d had to watch his father’s death firsthand. Danish’s conversations were moving, but watching him have this protracted conversation in his current state was amusing…not impressed! I’m already anticipating the avalanche of memes. Danish died of a heart attack at the end, which was the only logical conclusion for his character because he could never live a happy life without Mehwish. The entire scene surrounding the heart attack was depicted in such a way that Danish could say his final goodbyes before passing away — been-there-seen-that.
Shehwar’s chat with Maham revealed that he was sincerely sorry and convinced that he did not deserve to spend the rest of his life with Maham. Maham, on the other hand, did not want him to depart so quickly, but he also did not want to abandon him. Shehwar basically left because he wanted to, and he blamed Mehwish fully in the end. Maham’s talks and position were unsatisfactory.
This final episode failed miserably since Danish’s death was the most foregone conclusion, which most of us expected. Unfortunately, the death of the one character who the viewers adored was not even adequately covered. The sequences between Rumi and Danish in this episode were sweet, and I believe the writer chose to focus the ending on the father-son relationship because of their popularity.
The beginning of Mere Pass Tum Ho’s story was familiar. The outstanding ensemble cast, anchored by Nadeem Baig, was what set it apart. Like all of Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar’s earlier dramas, this one focused on his theory of love and unfaithfulness. Some of the exchanges were just mind-blowing – razor-sharp to be precise – while others might have easily been cut down. Finally, there were a few conversations that beautifully explained commitment and love. Danish was, without a question, the show’s star. The way he hid his feelings, especially after he realised Mehwish was about to leave him, was incredible. Humayun Saeed and Nadeem Baig deserve credit for that. Humayun Saeed performed admirably, particularly in the moments that dealt with loss and the realisation that his wife had gone on. That will be the most remembered feature of this moment for me. Humayun Saeed’s outstanding performance in Mere Pass Tum Ho will undoubtedly make viewers eagerly anticipate his next television debut.
The tale was somewhat sluggish and monotonous, but it kept the audience guessing until the very end. Some of the producers’ tricks for luring viewers in also helped to keep the audience’s interest alive. Most of the drama’s controversies, in my opinion, were misinformed and ill-informed. Shees Saji Gul is a charming, self-assured, and humorous young actor who was occasionally thrust into situations in the play that were inappropriate for a youngster his age. Rumi’s last few episodes were clearly over-the-top and at times inappropriate for his age, but his love with Danish was always endearing. It would have been so much nicer if the father-son bond had been explored more innocently.
Adnan Siddiqui took command of his persona immediately away. If Adnan Siddiqui had not done such an excellent job translating Shehwar’s character to the screen, he could have become simply another unpleasant character. Hira Mani’s attitude and acting in the drama did not pique my interest. Hania has a reputation for being a judgmental and sanctimonious persona. Savera Nadeem made a brief but memorable cameo, but the climax was a big letdown. Throughout the film, Ayeza Khan looked lovely, but her character didn’t have anything to contribute. I believe she had her best performance when she decided to leave Danish and in the two episodes about her regrets. Muhammad Ahmed’s performance, particularly in the final moment, was one of the most affecting we watched during the drama. Apart than Hira Mani, all of the other actors did an excellent job of matching their appearances to the various settings they were in. With the exception of a few sequences at the end that had minor continuity concerns.
By focusing more on faces in some of the sequences, filmmaker Nadeem Baig ensured that the audience felt every single emotion. Throughout Mere Pass Tum Ho, the camera work was absolutely outstanding. The director even introduced Dewan sahab’s character in such a way that you could sense he was a little strange right away. The drama’s OST was also cleverly utilised throughout. It was one of the best OSTs of the year thanks to its lyrics, composition, and Rahat Fateh Ali’s powerful vocals.
Overall, it was a thrilling ride! It was a wonderful experience to watch and evaluate Mere Pass Tum Ho. I had a lot of fun reading everyone’s comments, and I’d want to thank all of the lovely readers for making sure that the debates on reviewit were sometimes more intriguing than the episodes themselves.
However, I must state that this ending offered nothing new, and I pity the viewers who purchased tickets to see this final episode! It wasn’t even interesting enough, and it lacked the rhythm that other Mere Pass Tum Ho episodes had. The dialogue between Danish and Rumi was heartbreaking, but it might have been depicted much more effectively.
