Internet has found a ‘Devdas’ in Saad from ‘Mujhe Pyaar hua tha’

the unrequited love is killing us slowly but surely




The love triangle trope can be a slow burn and ‘Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha’ is proving to be exactly that. The drama shows the story of Saad (Wahaj Ali), Maheer (Hania Aamir) and Areeb (Zaviyar Naumaan). Saad has been in love with his cousin Maheer for a long time but is unable to confess his feelings for her. Now that Maheer is showing a romantic interest in Areeb, Saad is torn between his happiness and Maheer’s happiness.

What we love is how Saad’s character distances itself from the dominating, wrist grabbing, forceful main lead who coerces the girl into romanticizing him in a toxic manner, Saad on the other hand values Maheer’s feelings and is deciding to let go of his desire to be with Maheer.

What viewers really appreciated was how Wahaj did not have many dialogues in the last episode but his silence was screaming, he delivered through his expressions and was a true winner in the viewer’s eyes. One user wrote ” when he cries, we all cry”. Oh boy, oh boy! We didn’t cry, we bawled our eyes out!

The drama has been written by Sidra Sahar Imran and directed by Badr Mahmood. It airs every Monday at 8 p.m on ARY Digital.
