What Happened In Episode 2?
Episode 2 begins with a scene from childhood where Shamz is trying to tell Falak that he likes her. But she pays him no attention. Cut to today when they are madly in love with each other and want to get married. Geeti being in her dream world, already tries to run away with Shahid to Multan but fails.
While everybody thinks Shamz is at his father’s shop, he runs away with his friend ‘Logic’ to gamble. His father knows he is up to something dangerous. On the second day, even Falak catches him leaving the shop. On being asked about the money, he lies about him investing in the business. At the place where he gambles and always wins, he gets the offer from the boss. Saying that he will invest 2 million bucks if he is willing to play a game of the bigger hand.
At Falak’s house, her mother is worried about his son-in-law losing his job and her daughter barely surviving. While for Falak, she gets an opportunity to play qualifications match for badminton if she can devote more time to practice. But on her bad side, Geeti is now thinking to ask Shamz to marry her. Her constantly trying to get in between Shamz and Falak leaves her on Falak’s bad side. Even Falak herself telling her to back off. As Geeti tries to blackmail both Falak and Shamz about their secret relationship.
How Did The Reveal Go?
Threatening that she will tell their parents about the ongoing situation. Taking a stand for herself and her relationship, Falak tells her to get off of their faces. Saying that she will talk to her parents herself. As Geeti is shocked at her sudden outburst, Falak and Shamz go to their parents to talk about them wanting to marry. On one side, Shamz’s family is happy as Falak is the idol daughter-in-law, but Falak’s father seems confused considering Falak wanted to study and take up his position in the Railways. To confirm his doubt, his elder daughter also talks about her situation that she doesn’t want Falak to struggle financially or socially. As she has the potential to be a govt official, why would she marry a man who doesn’t have a secured future or even a present?
Thinking about the time when Shamz’s father talked to him about Shamz leaving the shop with his friends. Including the thought of him not being on the right path. Falak’s father denies their relationship and refuses to agree to their marriage.
When Is The New Episode Coming?
The new episode of the Laapata drama will premier on August 4. The episode will be telecasted on the Hum TV app and website along with the Hum TV Youtube Channel. Within four days of release, the show has a viewership of 3 million online already. The new episode will continue from where it left off i.e. Falak’s father denying the relationship of his daughter with Shamz. The production team released a teaser for the third episode. The teaser hinted that Shamz might start working for the sake of his possible marriage. We can also hear Falak asking him to work and settle a bit till the time she is studying. So her father can agree to the marriage.
But with the possible twist and turns that can take place in the movie, we do have some possible guesses. There might be a chance that Geeti might make a move and ask his family to marry her to Shamz as she is coming in between him and Falak. And with the big offer in the hands of Shamz to gamble. That gives him a huge sum of money in return but with a much higher risk. To prove himself, Shamz might take the risk.
