Mujhay Vida Kar has been one long-running drama on ARY Digital that rightly addressed the reality of South Asian households and how women suffer from the hands of toxic in-laws.
So much so, the story has been painstakingly true. Some of the twists in the plot gave us goosebumps, making us feel for the characters, their fears, their losses, and the hurt they were subjected to.
Despite a melancholic plot, the ending of the drama restored our faith in kindness, love, and happiness. It proved that that Karma hits back harder and you get what you deserve in life.
Starring Saboor Aly, Haaris Waheed, Madiha Imam, Muneeb Butt, Raza Talish, Tara Mehmood, and others, the thought-provoking tale has been written by Samra Bukhari and directed by Sabir Zafar.
Let’s take a quick review of the grand finale of Mujhay Vida Kar.
Justice is served
Dark days are finally over for Rida (Madiha Imam) now that she has agreed to get married to a loving companion, Safeer (Raza Talish). Though she still gets flashbacks of the torture she survived in the past, she is willing to leave it all behind and start a new life with a guy who truly loves her.
Saadia (Saboor Aly) continues to be her best guide in all these times, encouraging her to move ahead in life and leave the torment of the old days behind.
But the most reassuring scenes for the drama’s end where we see Usman (Muneeb Butt) aching for Rida and drowning in his misery. Now that he has become a drug addict, his parents (Saba Hamid and Shabbir Jan) are helpless and are praying for a miracle that could save their son. Even worse is Kashifa’s (Maira Khan) mental health. She too is reaping the seed of what she sowed, now that her husband has left her as well. They are moments when she feels someone has put her on fire, exactly like she did with Rida. It’s heartbreaking to see her like this but the realization that what goes around, comes back around is strongly highlighted in the story.
The best scene was when Usman’s father is shocked to see Rida thriving and running a trust for
the needy and underprivileged. It is the same center he admits Usman to in the hopes that his drug addiction could be resolved. However, Usman’s death was the most tragic of all the moments of the final episode- one that we surely didn’t see coming.
All in all, the ending reflected that God indeed is the best judge. Rida found happiness in the form of Safeer and so did Saadia got the fruit of her patience in the form of Aneeq.
Eye-opening story supported by power-packed performances
Like it or hate it, we need stories like Mujhay Vida Kar to restore our belief in karma and good fate.
Almost every year, we hear tales of daughters-in-law set on fire or abused by in-laws for not bowing down to their orders. The drama rightly exposed the true toxicity that is buried in our culture and how parents play a major role in making or breaking their children’s marriage.
Kudos to Madiha Imam and Muneeb Butt for displaying their best foot forward and delivered their best performance throughout the drama. We couldn’t help but love Saboor Aly as the doting friend and Raza Talish as the humble, soft human we all need in our lives.
Mujhay Vida Kar is a must-watch story and has the power to change our society! We are glad that we stuck by this tale till the very end
