Qubool Hai (English: I Accept) is a soap opera on Zee TV produced by 4 Lions Films. The show focuses on the Muslim community and aims to dispel stereotypes regarding Islam,[1] and has been credited with leading the way for more Muslim oriented programming.[2] The story is based in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India and was shifted temporarily to Punjab, India in April 2014 after the 20 year leap focusing on the life of Asad and Zoya's daughter, Sanam. The story moved was moved back to Bhopal in May 2014 with Sanam traveling back to the city where her parents lived and the introduction of her long lost identical twin, Seher Ahmed Khan (also played by Surbhi Jyoti)

Plot summary[edit]

The show revolved around Zoya Farooqui (Surbhi Jyoti) and half-brothers Asad (Karan Singh Grover) & Ayan Ahmed Khan. Zoya is introduced as a bubbly NRI who comes to Bhopal alongside cousin Zeenat and brother-in-law Anwar, for an arranged marriage. After escaping from the venue, she decides to find her long-lost father and upon Anwar's request, moves into his relative Dilshad's (Shalini Kapoor Sagar) household. Asad, Dilshad's son, is a very traditional and disciplined man, and immediately dislikes Zoya's bright personality. He believes she is spoiling his sister Najma and her actions anger him, leading to frequent misunderstandings even with her innocent intentions. Eventually, Asad's childhood friend Tanveer (Amrapali Gupta) is introduced, and it is revealed that she is evil and power-hungry. Asad and Zoya fall in love in due course and anticipate their marriage, but Tanveer intervenes consistently. Desperate, she attempts to murder Zoya however her endeavor is discovered by Asad, who promptly expels her from the house. The family then celebrates Najma's marriage with Imran Qureshi, who had gotten Tanveer pregnant prior to her expulsion. Soon it is revealed that many years ago, Zoya's mother Zeynab was killed by Ayan's aunt Raziya Siddiqui (Alka Kaushal) in his father Rashid Khan's (Vaquar Shaikh) doll factory. Gaffur (Tej Sapru), Raziya's husband and Zoya's biological father, blackmailed Rashid into marrying his sister Shireen (Surabhi Vanzara), after forcing him to leave Dilshad and their children.

It is shown that Raziya's daughter Humaira (Ketki Kadam) has developed feelings for Ayan, who accidentally gets into a community marriage with Zoya. The two fail to hide the accident, resulting in Zoya's forced stay at the Siddiqui household. After a few months, Asad claims Zoya as his love and brings her home. Rashid has an accident, after which his feelings for Dilshad are rekindled and he brings her to stay at Siddiqui house. This causes Ayan, who is angry at the event, to leave the city. Initially heartbroken, Humaira finds solace with the introduction of her love-interest Haider (Mohit Sehgal). The families are devastated when Rashid is murdered by Tanveer, but soon Asad and Zoya are married at the Taj Mahal. Zoya discovers that Gaffur is her father, also learning that he implicated her mother's murder. After a two year leap, she finally forgives her father and introduces him to her twin daughters, Sanam and Seher. Shireen and her daughters are shown to have moved to the UK, while Humaira and Haider are shown video-chatting with Asad and Zoya from Dubai. On the very same day, Tanveer escapes from jail and murders the family while Dilshad manages to escape with the twins and Najma's deaf-mute daughter Haya Qureshi.

The story takes a leap of 20 years, and shows Sanam, Zoya's look-alike daughter, as an adult in Punjab with her grandmother, Dilshad and cousin, Haya (Surbhi Chandna) while her twin Seher's whereabouts her unknown. Sanam frequently encounters Aahil Raza Ibrahim, who is introduced as Tanveer's step son, and eventually moves to Bhopal where she coincidentally ends up as a cook in his house. The mansion, unbeknownst to Sanam, is where her family's murder took place. Tanveer, now blind, wishes to inherit Aahil's deceased father's property, and is unaware that Sanam is Zoya's daughter. Rehaan Qureshi (Shehzad Sheikh), who resides as an assistant, is soon revealed to the audience as Tanveer's biological son. In order to acquire the property, Tanveer must arrange Aahil's marriage before his 30th birthday and she chooses Nida, Aahil's evil college friend, as the bride. He agrees for the marriage, being extremely loyal to Tanveer because she had always protect him from his abusive father. In the meantime, both Aahil and Rehaan develop feelings for Sanam, which triggers Nida's attempt to murder her. She is saved by Aahil, who is later disturbed by witnessing Rehaan and Sanam's friendship, causing him to interpret it as mutual love. Tanveer realizes that Nida plans to murder her, and decides to place Sanam as Aahil's bride, even after Rehaan tells her of his desire to marry Sanam. She then manipulates circumstances to force Sanam to agree to the marriage, surprising Aahil and disheartening Rehaan. Aahil falls under the illusion that Sanam married for money and treats her badly, choosing to act like a real couple only for the lawyer to confirm the marriage, so that they don't lose their property to a trust fund. Soon, Tanveer is horrified at discovering that Sanam is Zoya's daughter, and decides to make sure Sanam doesn't learn of her parent's murder. Her identical twin Seher is then introduced as a modern con-woman/thief, whose personality parallels Sanam's. Meanwhile, Haya falls in love with Rahat (Deepak Wadhwa), an ex-military who resides at the house where she is temporarily staying. However she incidentally accepts marriage to Rahat's younger brother Faiz, who also loves her, and Rahat and Haya are heartbroken.

Reception[edit]

Shraddha Bhandari, writing for IBN in December 2013, stated that Qubool Hai was typical of "All serials start off brilliantly with immense promise and somewhere in the middle they get lost in the maze of TRPs, cheap publicity and making what sells.[4] Bhandari had appreciated that the series had started with " Zoya Farooqui was a jeans wearing, very modern women, raised in the US, yet very close to her culture and roots. The story moved on with her clashes with the very orthodox, Asad Ahmed Khan and how she changed his conservative thinking and start of their love story." but stated that "the serial became lost in multitude of vamps, warring families, crude language and events that in real life are unfathomable. Slowly it lost its creativity and that eventually drained the morale of the leading cast".[4] Neha Maheshwari, writing for Times of India in July 2014, stated that the show "has failed to impress the audience."[5]
