Kudos to both writer Saira Raza and director Qasim Ali Mureed for addressing two major complaints we have about Pakistani dramas. Namely, character growth and romance. Mere Humsafar proves that love heals and love strengthens.
Hala’s Character Growth
How beautiful is Hala’s change to a slightly more confident and happier person who is taking initiatives as well. From someone who felt lost & alone with every setback in life, Hamza’s love has given her the confidence to trust, to have hope and to be brave.
A shout out to director Qasim Ali Mureed for showing romance in such a cute, endearing way. At the same time, he gently pushes boundaries through Hamza, implying subtle, intimate gestures but never crossing boundaries or making it uncomfortable to watch.
Sameen’s character is also changing for the better.
The Little Things
Love, love how the writer and director use seemingly small instances like buying gajras & changing the setting of the room as romantic & connecting fleeting, yet sweet moments between the two. They not only make for an entertaining watch but also touch on minor yet significant moments that almost all of us can relate to.
What Will Shah Jahan & Khurram Do Next?
Shah Jahan you have us scared … this new strategy is worse than your previous obsessive-psychotic behaviour.
We hope the cold attitude directed towards Hamza by everyone makes him realise how Hala must have felt living in that house for so many years, being blamed for events not in her control.
The bitter Khurram with an injured ego will be interesting to see in coming episodes – he rejected Hala but refuses to be aware of his own mistakes.
Did you catch Mere Humsafar last night? What did you think?
