After what seemed like 1 million torturous episodes, Mann Mayal has FINALLY ended. Surprisingly (not), many people are glad that it has ended, even though millions tuned in every Monday night to watch the show and then trend it on Twitter. Every. Single. Monday. Like clockwork. You may have hated it, but still couldn’t stop yourself from watching it till the end, hoping that maybe, MAYBE at the end all this wasted time will somehow get justified.
This is how Pakistanis are celebrating the end of one of the most polarizing TV shows Pakistan has ever seen:
Mann Mayal is(was?) like that catchy song you hate but can’t stop singing it.
Congratulations team #mannmayal.. you tested our patience, we criticized you but still watched it & made it a trending topic, every week.

The drama ended with *SPOILER ALERT* Salahuddin knocking at Mannu’s door, crying to let her in, to forgive her. But Mannu takes her time because she remembers…she remembers the time when she was also knocking at Salahuddin’s door and that door was never opened.
After some major emotional black-mailing by Salahuddin…
“Mein mar jayun ga, Mannu!!!!”
Mannu finally opens up the door and they look at each other and then a joke is cracked and among all these tears, they both smile and then they hug. THE END.
Yes, you went through all that for THIS.

Some people wanted the ending to at least have shown them both getting married.
Itna rona dhona dekhne k baad itna tu haq banta tha audience tha

I'd rather stare on wall for an hour instead of watching Mann Mayal. #MannMayal.

33 weeks of our lives could be saved if Salahuddin would've open up his door for Mannu earlier. #MannMayal

Some people think Mannu was mean and thankless
Okay but was she really in the place to play the victim role in the end when salahuddin took care of her and her kids for months?#MannMayal

And here’s a thought on the show’s script and direction
#MannMayal turned out to be the most poorly written and directed drama serial I have seen in a while. Lol.

This one person created a very interesting poll:
Man Mayal khatam hone pe kitne nafil parhne chahye?
— Saniya (@Saniyazing) September 5, 2016
While this one made a very logical comparison
Please tell me this is the last time this cancer of a drama serial is on our televisions #MannMayal

And this one made us LOL
Buddy, ab toh khatam ho gaya.
Getting real tired of all the mann mayal jokes now.
Jeena haraam kar diya hai.

While some ashiq mizaaj people found even this abrupt ending cute:

Mann Mayal has ended, but don’t worry about missing Mannu too much, as Maya Ali’s starring next to Osman Khalid Butt in a new drama that’s airing next week.
For those who’ll miss Hamza Ali Abbasi, here’s a picture
