Daughter by Law
Sarah comes to Pakistan with her husband and is faced by her old school mother-in-law Farah – a widow and disciplined novelist, under whose reign the Isfahani House follows a strict routine. She doesn’t approve of Sarah’s shenanigans and even finds the smartphone gifted by her a useless commodity. Sarah being a vegetarian has nothing to eat on the table, just when Neetu Chacha, Farah’s lifelong housekeeper comes to her rescue.
Farah decides to use the gifted smartphone but fails. Sarah gives her a brief tutorial. However, in trying to search for some Munawar Isfahani, Farah mistakenly starts messaging her daughter-in-law. Sarah sees this as something fishy and stalks Munawar, ending up calling him to meet her mother-in-law. The enraged Farah asks him to get out, warning Sarah to stay within her limits. Anticipated, she starts digging in to find out the truth.
While on her spying spree, Sarah finds some old love letters and asks Neetu Chacha about the details. Neetu explains how young Farah and Munawar used to be in love but Farah’s father didn’t approve of their marriage and Munawar had to flee abroad.
Sarah notices Farah avoiding Munawar’s calls and urges her to at least listen to what he has to say. The next day, Farah heads out with Munawar and tells Sarah that he is all set to return abroad in a few days. Sarah advises her to not let love go this time and propose to him. Farah does the same, but she wants to talk to her son about it too and plans to get married once he approves. Sarah’s husband is upset about knowing this and walks out. Sarah still encourages Farah to go ahead and don’t worry about her son as there are things he too does without her consent.
