Review – Mere Paas Tum Ho Episode 14
The drama has gathered a suitable pace where some unnecessary events are excluded from the script. In the previous episode, events aftermath of divorce were skipped and drama started after elapse of a few months. In this episode too, the funeral scene of Mateen’s Sb is excluded and the episode starts when the storm has pacified for Hania.
Shewaar hypocrisy is more exposed when he regards Danish as mean and inferior. Though he used to term Danish a great man previously but all pretention was to fulfill his malicious designs.
Like I mentioned in the review of the previous episode, a significant change has appeared in Danish’s personality. He screams at his ex-wife and orders her to get out. She is wondered to observe his behavior.
Overall episode 4.2/5
