Family traditions make relatives can rest easy and make a feeling of personality, security and having a place. Indeed, even basic ceremonies like a melody before bed can hold extraordinary importance for youngsters and families. Ceremonies are things that lone your family does. Ceremonies enable you to state, ‘This is our identity and what we esteem’. A few ceremonies may have been passed on from your grandparents or different relatives, and so Naulkha continues, a family that’s supposed to sing together, eat together, and live together is a force to fight over materialistic tradition. With her strong on-screen presence and identity as an artist Bushra Ansari ‘ Noor Jehan ‘ begun the Naulakha dispute at the first, and later it became so important for the rest that Naulkha might snap the relationship in just a few episodes. However, it’s crystal clear that everyone other than Akbar Ali and Zain hates Noor Jehan #BushraAnsari for being greedy for Naulkha, also Tehreem #SarwatGilani opposes her mother for hating Shafaq #KiranHaque and her Noor Jehan. On the other hand, Naulakha is just a metaphor, and the main focus of the female characters is Zain, who is a young bachelor, who is an educate feudal lord, and knows to stand for the rights. But Naulakha and the history doesn’t seem to intrigue him until his father made him understand about the importance of the tradition this week. Moreover, his cousin and best friend Tehreem #SarwatGillani also fails to understand the gaga over Naulkha, and she might not fall for it soon. The first episode was more like and the introduction of the character, and naulakha of course, but it left us wanting for more especially when Shafaq #KiranHaque and Tehreem #SarwatGilani got together with Zain at the end of the first episode. Also, Noor Jehan #BushraAnsari was against because she knows her sister in law won’t accept Shafaq #KiranHaque presence, and the closeness she wants to create between Zain #MirzaZainBaig and Shafaq #KiranHaque against Naulakha. Will Noor Jehan #BushraAnsari will be able to face the fingers pointed on her greed for Naulakha or she will save Shafaq #KiranHaque from his uncle and his daughter?
