in Uzbek: uzoq o'tgan zamon fe'li
Also called: distant past.
The pluperfect expresses an event or action completed either in a distant past or at a time anterior to a time of reference,
the latter having been previously set in the course of the discourse, and situated in the past (pluperfect).
It may also mark an event or action which had already been experienced by the agent.
When expressing distant past, it may still imply an implicit time of reference in the past:

Last year, we took part to the competition.
Ular yozuvchi bo'lgan emas edilar.

As a pluperfect, the event or action is set to a time anterior to a time of reference, itself in the past:

Shundan keyin qornim og'ridi.

Men to'yni kichikroq qilamiz deb o'ylagandim.

That past time of reference may sometimes be situated in the very near past:
