Latest Episode of ‘Dil Na Umeed To Nahi’ Puts Us On the Edge! [Review]

Major Spoiler Alert ahead!

The latest episode of Dil Na Umeed To Nahi was intense. Now a drama about child trafficking and forced prostitution is bound to illicit extreme discomfort, but lately, we’ve been on the edge of our seats.

The audience certainly agrees, there’s no looking away from this drama serial.

While we had some heartfelt moments in the last episode, like Jamshed (Wahaj Ali) recognizing Sumbul is Allah Rakhi (Yumna Zaidi), this episode didn’t have as much light in the dark.

Including Sumbul’s heart to heart with Jamshed’s baba (Nauman Ijaz).

Why Yumna Zaidi’s ‘Dil Na Umeed Tou Nahi’ Not Airing On TV?

We see Savera (Yasra Razvi) has run away from the brothel effectively stopping operations because the ‘madam’ was killed in the last episode. While Jamshed assured her that he’ll get her to a safe place, she was almost ambushed by Ikram (Adnan Shah Tipu) last time.

Will she finally get to safety this time? Thank goodness she did. The anticipation of whether Ikram would get to her first was brutal.

However, that relief was brief as we move on to learn that Xulfi (Omair Rana) is colluding with ‘Big Brother.’ He directs Xulfi to help him ‘start afresh’.

“Now we won’t pick up girls from villages. Too much time and energy is wasted on them. It’s too difficult to kill the rebelliousness of rural women. So I decided we’ll pick up lower-middle class girls from urban areas.”

According to ‘Big B’ they won’t bother with ‘nikkah’ this time around. They’ll cut straight to luring girls into pursuing their dreams.

Now we’ll see if Xulfi cares for Sumbul as much as Jimmy does. Is he willing to endanger himself to save her? Or will he sell her out?

Speaking of high stakes, Jimmy is even willing to risk their lives to help Allah Rakhi visit her family. That is why we’re in love with Jimmy. Should they make that treacherous trip to their village?

Based on the trailer they manage to get there. However, episode 18 did end with Ikram opening fire on Allah Rakhi. So we don’t know what to think.

Meanwhile, the trailer for the next episode shows Savera and Sumbul worried about Ikram killing them. After all, he can’t leave any loose ends or it might lead back to ‘Big Brother.’ If something happened to them, they’d all die inside.

We still don’t know who this elusive ‘Big Brother’ is with his connections and most of the police on his payroll. That’s not all that has us hooked to this drama serial, but we do want to know who’s behind the trafficking ring.
