Habs storyline

The show starts with a graduation ceremony scene and let’s be honest, I’ve never seen a graduation ceremony in a ill-lit small pea-sized auditorium and the longest applaud. So, right from the start, there was a lack of execution. Ayesha Sadiq (Ushna Shah), the protagonist, received a gold medal in her graduation and plans to continue her education. But then comes her mother (Saba Faisal) who is a victim of her own mother’s financial exploitation. This is simply because she works and supports her family is tantamount to robbing her of her basic human right. Not only that, but the mother’s financial abuse is so severe that she refuses to let her keep any of her money. Bano intends to marry Talal and as usual because of her greedy mother the proposal gets rejected for the fourth time leaving Bano shattered.

Feroze Khan (Basit), who plays the main protagonist, comes from a damaged home. Marriage is something he despises. Feroze’s father died, and his father’s final request was for him to forgive his mother and ex-wife so that he might have someone in his life, but Feroze is unwilling to forgive and forget the betrayal he and his father experienced as children. Not only that, but he is unwilling to trust any other woman in his life. And it is for this reason that he is opposed to marriage.

Marriage is important than father’s property

Javed Sheikh portrays Feroze Khan’s (Basit) father in the film. Who has a will that stipulates that he is only entitled to his entire estate if he marries? Which he still flatly refused. Ayesha Omer debuted as Soha in the first episode. Feroze Khan’s character has a very sweet and tranquil demeanour, which is a welcome surprise. Basit, on the other hand, is perplexed by his father’s absurd demand that she marry before taking over the business. With this, he considers marrying Soha. The plot of Habs drama sure is exciting and engrossing for the audience.
