Mere Humrahi Episode 7 – The Story Progresses!

After watching this show for 7 weeks, I have come to the conclusion that this show is not going to become fast paced. It was very slow in the beginning, but now gradually it is progressing at a steady pace. The story is getting more focused now and this episode mainly revolved around three characters; Haaniyah, Ahmed and Ahad.

photo(53)The sad part is that Ahad does not feel even a bit guilty, and he actually had the audacity to put the blame on Haaniyah for not waiting for him. The flashback scene was brilliantly executed, and I am glad it was shown as it gave more insight to what kind of a rapport Ahad and Haaniyah shared. I simply loved Haaniyah’s jovial and talkative kind of nature which is a stark contrast from what she has become now; serious and quiet. Ahad has managed to break the spirit of Haaniyah who once used to be full of life.

We also got to know why Haaniyah is so cold towards Ahmed and why she is not able to adjust to the new situation. She thinks that Ahmed has made a huge sacrifice for her and this seems like a huge burden to live with.

photo(54)‘Mein Thoopi Gaee Hoon Un Per’, this is what Haaniyah said to her mother when she asked the reason behind her cold behavior towards Ahmed. Haaniyah knows that he has married her just to save her and his family’s reputation, and this hurts her self-respect. What she does not know yet is that Ahmed has whole heartedly accepted her and intends to keep her happy. She just needs to give him a chance!

Ahad is now trying to contact Haaniyah so that he can get answers to his questions and blame her for being unfaithful to him. After Haaniyah ignored his calls, he misbehaved with Haaniyah and they had a pretty intense scene. Technically, Haaniyah should be the one blaming him for leaving her but the case was the other way round. Haaniyah has been very calm so far but she lost all control when he accused her, and her reaction was fierce. Ahmed has faith in Ahad that he would respect Haaniyah as she is his wife now, but I do not think Ahad has plans to leave Haaniyah alone anytime soon. Soniya performed well in this scene, though she did go a bit overboard. Shehzaad had the same expression throughout the scene once again; he really needs to work on his expressions.

photo(49)Of course, Samina cannot be left out in any episode and she did get her share of screen space in this episode; though not as much as before. Her haughty attitude is just unbearable! Ahsan really has a lot of patience to withstand her intolerable attitude. Zaheer and Afshah’s scenes are still more bearable and I do not mind watching their scenes. Zaheer and Afshah is an ideal couple who understand each other; they are poles apart from Ahsan and Samina. But I still fail to understand the reason behind the focus on the problems they are facing in their house. Sidetracks can get really annoying at times!

photo(51)The scene where Ahmed sees Haaniyah hurt and lovingly puts medicine on her wounds was the best scene in the episode for me. For the first time, Haaniyah let him care for her and did not try to keep distance from him. She was moved by his concern for her and could not help but realize what a caring person he is. One brother gives the wound while the other brother heals it! Their chemistry in this scene was just superb!

The story is finally moving forward and we can now see an understanding developing between Ahmed and Haaniyah. I am looking forward to see more of their scenes in the upcoming episodes.

The preview of the next episode shows that Ahad is not ready to leave Haaniyah alone. Let’s see how Haaniyah deals with him!

Do share your opinion about the episode; I would love to hear them!

Till Next Week

    atlast story moved a bit further after seven episodes, haaniya and ahmed looked great together, finally hannaiyah has some dialogs after six episodes of ‘rona dhona’. you have rightly pointed that side tracks of this drama are not much impressive becoming annoying sometimes.

    • Mariam Shafiq

      Thanks for commenting Rashid!

      Oh yes, Haaniyah finally had some dialogues… I wish Soniya would not overact. She overacts at times and its a huge turn off.

      Hopefully we will get to see more interaction between Ahmed and Haaniyah!

  • Amna Salam

    I can”t understand from where did Ahad get the courage to walk in into his “bhabhi’s” room, grab her and shout at her that “she is still his??”.. I mean at times this stroy is making no sense to me! Agree on the pacing of the drama
    And one drawback. When Haaniyah’s hand got cut, the blood did not drop. Instead some of it was on the glass while the hands were just red. is it just me or its obivous that with such a huge cut, blood has to drip. Or atleast her clothes should have got some red spots.. They should consider this stuff..

    • Mariam Shafiq

      Ahad is such a behis insaan! Ufff! He has no conscience! After what he did to her he should not even show his face to her and here he is blaming and mishandling her. I wish Haaniyah had slapped him!

      Yes, sometimes these things get all screwed up.. It looked like a very deep wound to me too!

      Thanks for commenting Amna! 🙂

      PS: i posted the link of the promo you wanted to see on APL review..

      • Amna Salam

        And the cherry on top is ofcourse Shehzad’s acting… I so wanted Haniyah to slap him in the face .. Not all wishes come tru you know.. ;(

        PS. Did you see, Haniyaah’s wardrobe is designed by Sana Fahad.. Bus us ki beti kai anay ki dair hai and it would be a whole family drama.. Maybe she would make her entry as Haniyah’s and Ahmed’s daughter, you never know 😛

        Double PS: Did you see this article? The author raised the same question as we did on the “dulha change” 😛

        • Mariam Shafiq

          Oh i did not know that. Sana Fahad is a designer too now! 😮
          Lol! Yes! Its totally possible. Then the whole family would be present in the drama. :p

          No i did not see it.. Just read it… Its kind of hilarious ! And somewhat true too.

          • Amna Salam

            Knew you would find it funny.. 🙂

        • Rashid Nazir Ali

          This article is written by Hanif Sahar from Urdu Daily Jehan Pakistan, which is normally published three times in a week, Perhaps its the only TV drama review column now a days in any newspaper. I use to read it too and most of the time Mr. Hanif Sahar has been too critical of Pakistani dramas.

          • Mariam Shafiq

            Wow you have so much information. Thanks for sharing it 🙂

        • Rashid Nazir Ali

          Well amna, its home production of Fahad, and sadly normally in home production, the actor producer involve many family members whether they are fit in the role or not. Nabeel has already both his daughter and son in drama Bulballay quite a while ago.If its Usman Peerzada production, Samina peerzad, Imran peerzada were always in. For Javed Sheikh home production, saleem sheikh, behroz sabazwar, shehroz were there. If its yasir Nawaz production then Danish Nawaz and nida pasha are must. So it will be long list.

          • Amna Salam

            Ya, i agree.. We cannot just stop ourselves from favoruing our family in every walk of life..

          • Mariam Shafiq

            Yes you are right…

            Family is always casted when making a show for the home production. But it really does get monotonous!

    • Mariam Shafiq

      Look Amna what i found! This will explain why the blood did not drip. It was applied with a paint brush by the director himself. :p

      This video made me laugh out loud..
      Shehzad : ‘Is ka khoon ziada acha lag raha hai’

      • Amna Salam

        Ohkay, we know it wasn’t real blood. But is the director insane that he was tring to “show blood” and he overlooked this fact?? What is the world coming to? And the director was painting it like he was in an art class. Sir, blood does not drip/comes out in such straight lines! He was actually trying to make it look pretty? And Shehzad;s words were a cherry on top.. I guess it motivated him more 🙂

        Thanks for the share

        • Mariam Shafiq

          LOL! The scene was hilarious! 😀

          No problem 🙂

      Hello Fairy!

      Yes, its the story that is attracting viewers and of course, Fahad Mustafa himself is the main reason why people are watching the show. He has a huge fan following and I am one of them 🙂
