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 37 Written Update and Review
There are only three major events in this episode
Hadi Keeps Weeping
Seriously, what’s with this guy? I mean, I understand that he liked/likes Khajista and all. But now he’s losing his mind just because he couldn’t “get” what he “wanted”. I expected more from his calm and composed personality.
Move on, bro!
Khajista Getting Ready for the Nikaah
Khajista is seen getting ready, wearing the traditional outfit and jewellery etc. By now, she has begun to appreciate just how much Darakhzai has changed.
Darakhzai also shows up, praising just how pretty Khajista is (that she is).
Later, Khajista talks to Biya about the changed man that is Darakhzai. While our heroine is ready to settle with her fiancé, Biya has also agreed to Dr Fahad’s proposal. See? Everyone is moving on with life, except Dr Hadi.
Anywho, so after accepting the proposal and all, Biya tells Fahad that Hadi shouldn’t have backed down so easily. It’s because of him that Khajista is marrying Darakhzai this Friday. Conveniently, Dr Hadi hears this.
Dr Hadi calls Khajista again. Yes, again. We saw him dialling Khajista’s number again and again in episode 36. She didn’t pick up. Didn’t he get the clue.
This time, he gets lucky, though. Khajista does pick up the call.
Why? Why does she entertain Hadi now? Isn’t she all googly-eyed around Darakhzai now? I don’t like what she did, but then, it’s not my story to tell.
So, they talk. Hadi is all calm and composed yet still hurting.
“Khush rahiye,” Hadi tells Khajista.
And then he hangs up, and then he bawls. My heart goes out to this guy. His family has betrayed him in every way possible. His ladylove had never encouraged him. He has nowhere to go.
Shehzad Sheikh steals the show with his performance, yet again.
Behram Khan’s Apology
Khajista has tended to Behram Khan’s wounds, and this was sure to bring a positive change. The change wasn’t limited to Shanzay alone. Behram Khan is also touched by this act of generosity and forgiveness.
Behram Khan comes to meet Daaji. After some kiddish threats from Darakhzai, he settles down to apologize for everything. From messing up with Darakhzai’s Jeep to firing on the bus, he takes responsibility of all the evil he has done.
Including shooting Dilawar Khan.
Cut to flashback where he vows to shoot Dilawar Khan just so Shanzay wouldn’t marry Amroz Khan.
Tch! Ever since the beginning of humanity, people have been murdering for “women”. Qabil killed Habil, and Behram Khan killed Dilawar Khan. The circle repeats.
The scene had some fine acting, especially the hurt and regret on Behram Khan’s face and Daaji’s weeping mourning his brother all over again. I liked this scene the most.
Sanobar Playing Her Game
This episode shows Sanobar forgetting all boundaries to “Darakhzai”. She seeks help from some old woman. Whether it’s something to do with Jadoo or poison, I’m not sure yet. But I don’t like it.
I think it’s time that our dramas go above and beyond these cheap tactics. The whole jadoo tona has become a thing in Desi culture. Instead of admonishing the same, they have made a whole drama on it. I don’t remember the name, but I watched a few clips in which one woman does kaala jadoo to get the boy she likes (it was some taboo relationship, I think).
The thing is, jadoo tona is real, legit, but also haram. Since people are already into it, we need to make dreams that instill hatred and disgust against the whole kaala jadoo business and not promote it. You know what I’m saying?
Why can’t Sanobar talk straight to Darakhzai? Even if Khajista is out of the way, Darakhzai would never settle for Sanobar; he has never even talked to her nicely. What exactly does Sanobar has in mind?
I wasn’t impressed with this track.
As for the best part of the episode, it was Behram Khan’s confession and Daaji’s emotional outburst remembering his brother all over again.
