Review: Cake Webisodes – How Zara Begins A New Life!


Asim Abbasi’s Cake was released earlier this year and created waves not only at home but also internationally. The audience loved the characters especially that of Zara and Zareen played by Sanam Saeed and Aminah Sheikh respectively.

Following the film’s success, webisodes regarding Sanam Saeed’s character were released on YouTube and were appreciated by the audience.

The webisodes of the movie consist of only five episodes with the final one uploaded on May 8. Each episode is only 1:30-2:00 minutes long with exceptional visuals that gave us goosebumps.

The series tells the audience why Zara returns to Pakistan and what made her choose her home country over the adopted one. Let’s go through the webisodes and find out how this prologue series helped in understanding the making of Cake.

Episode 1

The first episode follows the story of Zara, plays by Sanam Saeed, who had gone to London for her studies. She meets a guy named Adnan and they both fall in love with each other and get married. We absolutely loved the chemistry between the two which made us fall in love with them, as well.

Episode 2

In the second episode, everything between the couple seems to be going well but suddenly things begin to change. They start to ignore each other because of their professional commitments. We loved the short dialogues between the couple and how they portray the story in just a minute.

Episode 3

In the third episode, the professional commitments and work start to interfere in their personal lives and they don’t get enough time to spend with each other due to which Zara refuses to start a family. It was heartbreaking to see them parting their ways.

Episode 4

In the fourth episode, Zara demands for space and time to end the grudges between them but Adnan ends up divorcing Zara. “I will find someone hotter and smarter than you”, said Adnan to which Zara responds, “I know.” We were left all heartbroken!

The webisode ends with a poignant song with meaningful lyrics and that’s why Zara decided to move back to Pakistan and never go back. She later got married to Mikaal’s character in the movie and lives happily ever after.
