Mere Humrahi Episode 4 – Emotionally Loaded!

This week’s episode was way better than last two and I personally liked it a lot. The pace was still slow but we got to see a lot of interesting scenes in this episode. If they would have showed the wedding sequence immediately after Ahmed offered to marry Haaniyah, then it would have made no sense. I am glad that they showed the inner turmoil that Ahmed was going through. He had made this hasty decision to save his parent’s reputation but now he had doubts about the future of his relationship with Haaniyah.

“Kya Mera Faisla Sahi Hai… Mein Aur Haaniyah Aik Doosre Se Muhabbat Nahi Karte. Kaise Face Karunga Mein Haaniyah Ko”

photo(11)His indecision, confusion and turmoil were clearly depicted by his thoughts above. I loved the way he put up a brave face in front of his sister and mother and did not let them know how unsure he was about his decision. His mother was a bit shocked by his decision at first, but now even she was just as proud of Ahmed as his father.

My heart completely went out to Haaniyah in this episode. She was so happy to hear that Ahad has agreed for the marriage again and she instantly forgave him for what he had done just a day before. She was happy again and preparing enthusiastically for her wedding, until her father came and burst her bubble. The heart-to-heart conversation between father and daughter was an emotionally charged scene and both Soniya and Munawar Saeed were brilliant in the scene. This scene literally gave me goose bumps and I could clearly feel the emotions of the two characters.

photo(14)Soniya perfectly portrayed the initial shock, followed by hysteria and finally acceptance of the situation. Her father first tried to explain the situation to her and when that did not work he resorted to emotional blackmailing to make her agree and since she had already made the mistake of not listening to her father in Ahad’s case, she agreed to her father’s decision this time. The sad part was that she still did not give up on Ahad and kept calling him again and again. Her chant of ‘Mein Ahad Se Muhabbat Karti Hun’ did not end till the very end!

“Hum Apni Aulaad Ko Sab Kuch De Sakhte Hai Per Naseeb Nahi”

photo(10)This dialogue was spoken by Haaniyah’s father after he witnessed her breakdown. Every parent wants their children to be happy and all their wishes to be fulfilled but Haaniyah’s parents were completely helpless in this situation. In this episode, they focused on what every character in this show is going through. They even showed how worried Haaniyah’s mother and Ahsan’s were for Haaniyah and her reaction to the news of her marriage with Ahmed.

It might be a slow episode but I did not get bored even for a bit and I am glad Samina got less screen space this time. Samina is back in Ahsan’s house to create more problems for everyone. She is truly the most annoying character in the show!

I must add that I find Soniya Hussain really pretty and she has the most beautiful smile. She just needs to tone down her acting a bit otherwise she is perfect! I even love her overall look, especially her hairstyle in the show.

The Humsafar background music in this show was a total turn off for me. I wish they had not added it! My whole attention diverted from the scene to the background music.

I was expecting the wedding to happen in this episode but now hopefully, it will happen next week. It will be interesting to see how the story will progress now.

I would love to hear your views about the episode, so do not forget to comment!

    I just hate haniya crying… she looks so weird and childish in this drama…. 😀 … !! for me still this episode was very slow… i didnot get the point of dragging the wedding so long………. and the most weird thing is “the day” is not ending … haniya came back from the hospital , her father told her that she is now getting married to ahmad, samina came back… but still its afternoon or i mean to say daytime… !! i think these all things took alot of time or they should have taken… the day could have been passed in reality….

      Hello Silver Eyes!

      Thanks for commenting! 🙂

      I actually found Soniya good in this episode. It is just her acting style that makes her look childish and yes, she does overact alot. But overall, i liked her scenes in the episode.
      Lol! I had thought the same! So much happened but its like time has stood still !
      They really need to move on and from the promo i saw on TV, they will definitely show the wedding next week.

      I have a feeling next week will be good! Keep watching 🙂

        its episode 4 and still dragging… all this stuff should have been covered within 2 episodes… there is much to show what will happen after wedding… Hope ur words come true and next episode brings a change… especially in the day,.. :p

        • Mariam Shafiq

          Yes, I totally agree that this all could be covered in 2 episodes. I have no idea why they dragged it so much…
          Lol! Day will be the same, since the wedding is in the night and its still Day time. So ya… Don’t expect the day to change for one more episode! :p

  • Rashid Nazir Ali

    despite some flaws mostly editing wise and familiar background music, still drama is interesting, but they have to move further now after showing the wedding just move on to next events.

    • Mariam Shafiq

      Thanks for commenting! 🙂
      Yes, i agree that the drama is interesting. I did not find this episode boring at all for some reason. Maybe because it had some really intense scenes.

      Yes, they really need to move on and from the promo I saw on TV this week, the wedding is definitely happening next week.
