Another episode where Aswad from Hum Kahan Sachay Thay is reeking toxicity but after last night’s episode, people are questioning why Mehreen is choosing to stay in an abusive marriage. She confesses her love for Aswad for the second time, we can’t help but feel for her, yet, also feel angry. Can’t she see the amount of hatred he has for her? Why would she sign that Affidavit? Doesn’t that completely disregard the pain she went through whilst proving her innocence ever since Mashal’s death? Why why why!?
Just like us, the Twitterati had these questions as well. #Aswad is trending on Twitter since last night and here are some of the reactions people had after HKKST’s latest episode.
Have Our Dramas Regressed?
“I honestly could not watch this- our shows haven’t evolved. They have regressed. No trigger warning. Just keep glorifying abuse and suffering in silence. Pitting women against each other.”
Will We Ever Stop Showing Women As “Becharees”?
“There are other stories in the world, people trying to start businesses, women running businesses, their entrepreneurial struggles, men and women trying different sports. Lekin dikhana saas ya mian ka zulm hi hai end mai”
Aswad Is Toxic But Mehreen, We Expected Better From You!
“Okay aswad is a toxic person but why mehreen is accepting to live with such a toxic person. She has the choice to leave him and her khala is also supporting her. Novel is way better and close to reality than drama.”
“Ok Thats it Mehreen Mansoor You lost me Signing that paper made me hate you more than Aswad #humkahankesachaythay“
ZQ Says It’s Too Late To Change The Story Now!
“we wrapped up shooting in August, ab kuch nahin ho sakta….”
Some Aswad Fans Spotted
“Haters gonna hate…but we are still loving it. Today’s episode was Aswad’s. Brilliant performance by @MukhtarHoonMein#HumKahanKaySachayThay.”
“Usman Mukhtar however, is perhaps the big winner though. For the first time he’s getting to show his skill on tv, and he’s done such a good job playing the horrible Aswad! Why Mahira Khan chose this to come back to tv, I guess we’ll never know.”
And Of course, The Aswad Hate Club!
“Aswad is the reason I’ve stopped watching hum kahan k sache that.”
“Nahi what I meant to say was that there was an initial response to the critic that Mehreen had a disturbed childhood hence her role but what disturbed childhood Aswad had? The content we are feeding to the society is poisonous”
And in walks Parizaad to save the day … the hero who’s always no. 1!
“In a world full of Aswads (a cruel, mean and apathetic), be like P Z Mir (a kind hearted, helping and empathetic). #HumKahanKaySachayThay #parizad“
“Aswad is trending on Twitter, All the Galiyaan making him trend”
“My amma is watching hkkst rn and she just said “Kash wo nend ki goliyan aswad ki chai mein huti.” and I couldn’t agree more. Can’t stand him for even a second. Toxic and spineless man.”
“Today’s motivation is, “Hum kahan k sachy thy” k Aj k episode me Aswad ko thappar pare ga…..!
Perhaps, There Is More To Aswad’s Character?
“the whole drama has no purose but expecting aswad to change just because he came from america is also unreasonable. but in 1 epi aswad recalled how he changed over the time because of mashal death, from not hitting to getting violent”
“When Aswad said: death is not; punishment life is! I felt that real quick”
Can’t Wait To Prove Aswad Wrong!
“I am actually waiting for upcoming scene where Aswad hopefully get to know the truth and innocence of mehreen.”
We can’t wait for the story to unfold further. Do you think what Mehreen is doing is justified? We hope there is a valid reason behind Mehreen’s silence and we hope the drama doesn’t glorify staying in an abusive marriage just for love. What did you think about last night’s episode?
