Peeral is a big player he calls the minister and complains over the posting of ASP Arsalan without informing him. He is irked that a new boy will dictate the state of Jhok Sial. The minister assures him that the ASPs posting is temporary by the top management. He will soon be removed.

Farhan Saeed showcases his supreme acting chops with aplomb. Apart from emoting through his expression and body language, it was a delight to watch Saeed doing some real action sequences. Brownie points to the action director for realistically choreographing the sequences. Farhan’s voice and the way he faces the camera itself bring life to the character. In fact, a lesser actor would have failed to do justice to this character. His confrontation with Jahan Dad is exemplary. We are in love with Farhan’s new avatar and can’t wait to watch the exciting journey of ASP Arsalan.
