I love the sound of some words like “Takhliya”. I wish it was still used or maybe I can start using it and everyone would see me as a crazy person. Mujhe takhliya chaiyeh = I need takhliya. Someone bring takhliya! ahhaha it’s so fuuny, no? No? Okay and Takhliya means privacy but if you don’t know the meaning you would be running around looking for takhliya. Now is it funny?
The game is heated up for the successor to the throne. Who will be the winner? For now there are two candidates, Taimor, Wazeer begum and the emperor’s 19-year-old son who for some reason isn’t allowed to meet his mother and Shujat, emperor’s brother and son to Badshah begum. It seems sooner or later Shujat is going to commit treason.
Emperor has issued a coin of his name and he gets a surprised visitor and I was truly shocked to learn that the emperor won Surraya in a gambling game. Her old husband has come for her as promised with the money Eeeppp emperor thought he’s dead so he ended up marrying her. What a twist!
Akhtari uses her powers? she sensed Mehr bano’s presence and captures her. I was wondering why wasn’t Mehr bano getting caught now I won’t have to worry “bites nails”. The graveyard scene was spooky and creepy. Wait! There’s a graveyard in the palace?
With the trump card, Mehr bano, in hand Badshah begum calls for her son Shujat again but he doesn’t wish for the throne but that girl. Mor Mahal is emperor Asif Jahan’s so is every soul living in it. Shujat asks his brother for Mehr bano and he declines and this of course doesn’t make Shujat happy.
Why didn’t Badshah begum saw the girl who has bewitched her son? I was waiting for that because she would have recognized Mehr bano as she’s the only one who has seen her.
Mehr bano’s brother sends gifts to the emperor and it’s a baby’s crib/bed. Great! the emperor hasn’t consummated his marriage where will the baby come from? And moreover the maid Banki has taken the role of Mehr bano. Once again Banki’s heart sways and she thinks of becoming the queen.
The end was a bit surprising Shaista maid of Wazeer begum meets the emperor in a very unusual way.
