Tum Se Hi Taluq Hai Episode 17 Review  Sadaan- Consumed By Hatred, Regret or Jealousy?




Tum Se Hi Taluq Hai is a riveting family drama brought to us by the ever-creative Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi through their amazing 7th Sky Entertainment. As expected from the producers, there is never a dull moment in the story line, leaving the viewers to wish for just that something extra whenever the drama hour is up.
This story revolves around two cousins Aleena (Tooba Siddiqui) and Sadaan (Syed Jibran), who are divorced because Sadaan has not accepted Aleena as his equal and has found his soul mate in Rama (Faryal Mehmood), who is an ex-colleague and a trendy lady. But alas! Behind the vivacious Rama lurks a dark evil and she is always brooding about Sadaan and his ex-relationship with Aleena, now all the more evident because of their frequent interactions based on discussions for their 2 daughters. Each parent has one daughter and while Nimra, who is with Aleena is happily adjusted, Sidra, who lives with Sadaan and Rama faces untold mistreatment at the hands of her step –mother. Rama is fantastic in this stereotypical role and has Sidra terrorized out of her skin. She has now moved Sidra to the servant quarters and Sadaan has absolutely no clue as to what is happening to his daughter under his very nose in his own house.  
In the last episode we saw Aleena getting married to her cousin Nakheel (Ali Abbas), a widower also with one daughter, due to personal reasons. In this episode, we see Sadaan's shock on discovering about this marriage and it has consumed him. He feels lost and angry as well as confused, not knowing what to think. The final result of his intricate thinking process is that he has again laid the blame squarely on Aleena- that she planned for this marriage by withdrawing from him during her marriage to him which pushed him towards Rama, and thus absolves himself of his guilt at his second marriage. His lawyer meanwhile is seen to be provocating him to act in his daughters' best interests by not leaving her at the mercy of such calculating people.
Rama, meanwhile has her own demons to fight- she is upset with Sadaan's distractedness and confides in her friend who advises her to distance Sadaan from Aleena bit by bit because he cannot seem to shake off his habit of having his ex wife around, doing things that Rama does not. She also has a tete-a-tete with her cousin and friend, Asher, confiding her love for her husband with him. He informs her that she has become the owner of property worth 40 Crores as the property papers are absolutely original. Asher tries to get all cuddly with Rama, whose sirens blast and she leaves his house after telling him off. No doubt, Asher wants the prize, Rama, all to himself! We will have to wait and see what the next episode brings but my oh my! What satisfaction in watching the self-righteous Sadaan take a fall, which I hope will be even further in the episodes to come!
