Watching Jhok Sarkar every week is like enjoying a hot cup of Karak Chai. Thanks to ASP Arsalan aka Farhan Saeed’s karak avatar who with his supreme acting chops puts up a great show. Directed by Safie Hassan, written by Hashim Nadeem and produced by MD Productions Jhok Sarkar airs every Tuesday on prime time.
ASP Arsalan Investigates Iqbal’s Kidnapping
ASP along with his force reaches Iqbal’s place for a detailed investigation. Inspector Ramzan of Shorcort district gives the task to detective Fakira who with his old-school techniques can gather some evidence from the crime scene. ASP is a bit skeptical about Fakira’s ability to do the job. Ramzan explains that since there are no laboratories of forensic services available near the district they aren’t left with much options. Fakira succeeds in his task and gives them important clues that the kidnappers have headed toward Jhok Sial. He also gives an earring that must have been dropped from the kidnapper’s ears.
Jahan Dad Isn’t Happy Being Sidelined
On returning from Shorcot, Jahan Dad (Malik Raza) complains ASP Arsalan about Inspector Ramzan investigating the jewelry markets of Jhok Sial without his permission. He further opens up about being sidelined from all the matters of the police station. He feels that he isn’t trusted by him. ASP is glad that Jahan Dad himself initiated to talk on this topic otherwise he would have maintained the silence a little longer. ASP schools him that they work for the government for which they get paid too. There aren’t any personal likes or dislikes on the job. Jahan Dad defends himself for being helpless and being controlled by powerful people. ASP sets the record straight that her gets salary by the government and not by these feudal lords. He warns him that if he finds any solid proof of his disloyalty, he won’t be a part of the force anymore.
ASP Arsalan Raids At Peeral’s Haveli
The investigation in the jewelry bazaar confirms that the earring belonged to Meeral (Usman Javed) special henchman Mukhtara (Adeel Afzal). ASP leaves no time to raid Peeral’s haveli. Jahan’s Dad cannot believe his ears when Inspector Asghar (Mazhar Suleman) tells him about the raid. Surprisingly ASP meets his ex-girl friend at the haveli who is now married to a rich politician. ASP in front of the entire crowd arrests Mukhtara.
Jhok Sarkar should have been aired at least twice a week. We say this because the intensity and intriguing level of every episode is so high that it becomes an uphill task to wait for an entire week to watch the next. The protagonist Farhan Saeed is simply magical. We can’t think of any other actor doing justice to the role of ASP Arsalan. With every episode, his act leaves a lasting impact on us. The return of ASP’s ex-girlfriend will surely add some more drama to the proceedings.
