Meray Humnasheen is a mesmerizing narrative encapsulating the struggle between aspiring dreams, hopes and greed for power.
Khajista is a smart, intelligent girl who belongs to a conservative and traditional family that hails from mountainous areas. Her passion to become a doctor stems from her childhood trauma when she lost her mother early on in life. To revolutionize healthcare services, Khajista is filled with hopes and dreams. On the other hand, Khajista’s cousin Darakhzai is a hot-headed and arrogant man whose backward thinking makes him insecure about Khajista’s higher studies and wishes to keep her under his control.
Coming from an educated and well-off family, Hadi is in his final year of medical school and his composed demeanour makes him highly likeable amongst his batch mates. Studying in the same college, Khajista and Hadi’s first encounter leaves them with mixed feelings for each other.
In a dream of becoming a doctor, will Khajista be able to overcome all the challenges? With constant pressure from her family particularly Darakhzai, will Khajista be able to fulfil her dreams or will she remain caught in the dilemma of love and dreams?

Meray Humnasheen Episode 11 Written Update and Review
Khajista is back home but life isn’t easy for her. Darakhzai keeps bugging her and their (initially) juvenile bickering turns serious when Darakhzai breaks the bone that Khajista was studying (the same bone she picked up angrily from the table when Aima was insulting her and Khajista delivered the infamous “matan aur maqsad”). This causes a havoc in the house. While Daji and Moray think this isn’t serious, Amroz Khan takes it a bit seriously and offers to reimburse for it. Darakhzai goes one step ahead and offers his own limb… I know… So sweet… Khajista refuses, of course but look at the emotions and the gesture.
Sobia kinda sorta pressurizes Shahryar for Aima-Hadi marriage. Hadi gives a clear no, clearly pissed off by Aima’s habits and behaviour (specially when it comes to Khajista, ahem). Shahryar promises Sobia that Hadi “will” marry Aima. I was like, wow. There is no difference between these people whether they belong to the mountains or the city, they force their kids to marry per their wishes. I’m not saying parents have no say. I’m saying that the ones getting married have a say, too.
The best conversation of this episode was Khajista-Hadi conversation in the vacant classroom.
Mere pichhe pahad hain, doctor parents nahin. Khajista tells Hadi.
Hassan knows about the broken bone, so I’m sure he will use this against Hassan.
This review is three days too late, and I’m off to watch the next one Meray Humnasheen Episode 12.
