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 35 Written Update and Review
I had apprehensions watching this episode. I haven’t watched any episode, not even a clip ever since episode 14 (you can read the review here: Drama Review | Meray Humnasheen | Episode 14).
20 missed episodes, that’s a lot, right? I wondered if I would be able to follow the story, or if the story was still as engaging as I remmeber it to be.
The answer is yes on both accounts.
Without much further ado, let’s start the show.
Chor Ki DaRhi MeiN Tinka
Dr Shahryar, Dr Sabika and Dr Aima are sitting in the lounge discussing Khajista’s speech. Aima pretends to be all innocent and naive as she asks questions about the whole fiasco.
The Huge Outburst
Haadi comes home. He has clearly learned that Hassan was behind this scandal. He is out of his mind, and goes straight to grab Hassan.
In a long and painful monologue, Haadi accuses Hassan, and his parents for everything. Dr Shahryar and Dr Sabika can say nothing except bowing their heads in shame.
Haadi doesn’t stop here. He insinuates that his parents were behind this as they never wanted him to marry Khajista. Ouch!
Shanzay’s Tape is Stuck
For once, Shanzay isn’t worried about Khajista luring Amroz Khan. For once, she has believed that Amroz Khan sees Khajista only as a sister. But… Wait…
This peaceful Shanzay isn’t the one we are used to see.
“Amroz Khan Khajista ko apni behen samajhta hai. Lekin kya woh bhi Amroz Khan ko apna bhai samajhti hai?” Sanobar bitterly adds.
That is all it takes for Shanzay to be suspicious again.
Khajista is seen doing dua.
“Allah, jo mere naseeb mein behtar hai usey likha rehne de, baqi sab mita de,” she says.
Kitni jame’ dua hai mohabbat ke chakkar se nikalne ki. I am impressed by Misbah Ali Syed’s writing. The story and the dialogues, especially Khajista’s, never fail to impress.
After dua, she steps out in the verandah and runs into Amroz Khan. The two get to talking. And, guess who’s watching them from behind the doors?
Yep, you guessed it right.
“Woh dehleez meri behen ki hai. Kitni baar bataya hai?” Amroz Khan reprimands Shanzay.
Kya Shanzay? Get over it, sis!
Darakhzai is a Changed Man
Darakhzai vows to handle everything that comes Khajista’s way. This otherwise tactless man has noticed that something is bothering Khajista. Isn’t that sweet?
Yeh kya, Darakhzai?
Yep, Darakhzai got emotional. Awnnn!
I love their conversation. This truly shows how far Darakhzai has come. He has changed himself for Khajista. That is quite impressive.
Khajista’s Change of Heart
Earlier, it was Shanzay standing behind the door gawking at Amroz Khan. Now, it is Khajista leering at Darakhzai. I think her prayers are answered. Perhaps Allah has chosen Darakhzai for Khajista, huh?
I’d like to see these two together, even though I immensely like Dr Haadi. Call me weird.
Haadi Knows, Finally!
Dr Shahryar and Dr Sabika finally tell Haadi why they kept quiet–because it was Hassan and they were protecting their son (without worrying that it put an innocent girl’s dignity at stake).
The look on Haadi’s face, priceless! He is so disappointed in his parents, and rightly so.
So, that’s about everything that happened in this episode.
As I mentioned already, I had apprehensions watching this episode. I wondered if I would be able to follow the story, or if the story was still as engaging as I remmeber it to be. It has been 20 episodes since the last time I watched Mere Humnasheen. The answer is: Yes, absolutely!
I had forgotten how loud and slow this could be. The whole confrontation scene between Haadi and his family, then Shanzays’s evesdropping on Khajista and Amroz Khan, Haadi reminiscing the roadblocks in his “relationship” with Khajista… It all seemed slow even on 2X speed. I had to skip through some of it to keep myself from stopping the video altogether.
To sum up, Meray Humnasheen episode 35 was entertaining, but slow.
Oh, and the continuity issue: Khajista’s dupatta has changed from the time she was praying to when stepped out in the verandah.
Let’s talk about performances for a bit.
I have always appreciated the performances of this cast barring the Pushto accent that Hiba Bukhari and Ahsan Khan have acquired (and the overacting of that wide-eyed girl Moomal who scars me). This time, again, almost all of them were good. Whether it is Haris Waleed’s quiet and grim face when Haadi was yelling at him, or Farhan Ali Agha’s hurt face upon Haadi’s accusations; whether it is Hiba Bukhari’s confused expressions upon seeing a different Darakhzai, or Ahsan Khan who showed the softer side of Darakhzai; everyone was so so good.
It is, however, Shehzad Sheikh who won the best performance of this episode. From his outburst in front of his family, or feeling the pain after remembering the ups and downs of his “relationship” with Khajista, to the final scene when he learns who was behind trapping Khajista into a scandal; this lean dude has nailed every single scene. I particularly liked when he shaked his head with disappointment staring at his father. Shehzad Sheikh, a pat on your back. Bhai waah!
So, that was my review of Meray Humnasheen episode 35. How did others enjoy this episode?
