When we watch a show, we usually like the aspects of it that are fun filled, romantic. We rarely want to see what is unpalatable for e.g. revenge, hatred, duplicity or even jealousy. While we face these in our life (though we wish that we all have a picture perfect life, it is still not a movie). While we try to find some sort of escapism in Television shows or movies, we do see some parallels in our life with what we see on TV.
Zoya Farooqui (Surbhi Jyoti) has run away from the reality that she saw. Tanveer (Amrapali Gupta) and Asad Ahmed Khan (Karan Singh Grover) have supposedly betrayed Zoya with their act. She wants to forget, however, memory is a thorn (we actually wanted to use a more harsh word, but we are trying to mind our language) that keeps pricking at the wrongest moment. She has found refuge in an orphanage and is trying to sweep the memories clean.
On the other hand we have Humeira Siddiqui (Ketki Kadam), who also has shunned her reality. Reality of her fiancé not being in love with her. She was going away and met with an accident. And now she is someone else. Is this a memory loss or willful attempt at wanting to forget her reality of a love-less marriage. Is that the reason she has become a woman who is perhaps loved by her husband as that is her eternal wish?
We want to know, if there was something that you would want to forget, the one memory that you would want flush out of your brain, what would it be? And will it bring peace to you? One can run away from things, people, places, can one run away from oneself?
In Qubool Hai, each character wants to not face their reality. There is Gaffur Ahmed Siddiqui (Tej Sapru) who wants to forget his reality of having had an illicit affair and fathered a child out of wedlock (at least that what we see in the story so far). His way of escaping that reality is find solace in religious books, rituals and charity.
Razia Siddiqui (Alka Kaushal) has her reality of being a criminal which she hides behind a garb of a caring mother, however, the evil streak surfaces ever so often. She has killed a woman in her need to secure her marriage and keep her man. She went a step further in her efforts to secure a future for her daughter by blackmailing Ayaan Ahmed Khan (Vikrant Massey) in a marriage of convenience.
Warped thinking is what one would say. But if we were to look at it from their perspective, they are all desperate people, taking desperate measures. Are the means justifying the end? Each one wants to find their share of happiness, however, is it fine to trample over others to create your world.
