History Has Repeated Itself For Junaid And Batool Has Paid The Price…..


 Balaa has been produced by Big Bang Entertainment. The story line revolves around love and revenge in both the lead and the side relationships. Lead roles are played by Nigar (Ushna Shah), aka THE BALAA. Taimor (Bilal Abbas Khan) plays the male lead role. Joined by this couple are Nigar's brother Junaid and his first wife whom he killed in a fit of passion only to be remarried to Taimoor's younger sister Batool, which we saw in the last episode.
Episodes 25 and 26 revolved around Batool's murder by Junaid after just a single day of marriage. When Nigar gets to hear about it from her father, she wishes her brother dead but now realizes her own fragile position and instructs him to tell one and all that Batool was secretly meeting her admirer in the lawn and being a man with pride, when Junaid caught them he aimed his gun at her lover, whereupon she came to stand in front of him and got fired at instead. Ahemmmmm… isn't it stretching coincidence to think Junaid's wife died in dubious circumstances and now his second wife is dead right after the marriage? When the episode started with the bang and Batool grotesquely fell into the pool I was waiting for someone's dream to end but when it didn’t I realized that this is actually part of the drama!
Anyway, Taimoor and his mom are informed, they come running and get suspicious of the whole situation but decide not to pursue a case against Junaid due to the honour and shame attached to the concept of dragging the poor girl's name through the court.. strange, I would have thought that being accused of an illicit romance the day after her marriage would have tainted the girl's reputation more than getting it cleared and proving her husband's evil – who has become a mental basket case by the way.. no wonder, with the people he lived with and grew up with, it’s a mystery how he looks composed on the outside as well.
Shama, Batool's mother is distraught with grief and goes into emotional withdrawal, whereupon Taimoor gets upset at her instead of consoling her. He also holds himself responsible to some extent, having known of Junaid's emotional health and his uncle's manipulative character. Slowly, he is beginning to realize his wife is not just the pretty face he married. Nigar is fretful for her role in Taimoor's life, post the murder and keeps on insisting that Batool died due to her own deeds. However, in the hope that falsehood cannot sustain for long, we await with baited breath what the next two episodes will bring. Will Junaid be brought to justice? What will become of Nigar? How will her deceitful plots see the light of day and enlighten the dumb minds around her? Who will hold her accountable?
All these and more answers that we are anticipating will be unraveled in the next episode. Stay tuned!
