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 09 Written Update and Review
In the mountains
We see very little of Khajista’s family, but whatever we see, it’s very impactful. Amroz Khan and Daji discuss Behram’s constant threats and interference.
“If he wants to reignite the old rivalry, we aren’t going to back down,” Daji tells Amroz Khan.
Incidentally, Shanzay overhears this. More killing would only mean more forced marriages, and in her case, end of a love story. How could she let that happen again? She calls Behram and yells at him. She doesn’t want a blood bath again.
I like that she is protective of Amroz Khan. The problem is, that she is also very possessive, so possessive that she forgets all boundaries, so possessive that she finds a target for all hatred-Khajista.
Khajista’s “other” rival
Khajista isn’t the target of Shanzay alone. There is Aima also who’s after Khajista. Yun kahiye ki hath dho kar, naha kar Khajista ke peechhe pari hai.
Khajista’s slap has caused a havoc in her “supposed” sasural, so she goes to yell at Khajista.
Aima: Tumhari wajah se mere ghar ka mahaul kharab hua hai. Tum jahil log, 10 saal ki umar mein to school jate ho.
Khajista: Haan, lekin jab school jate hain aur jo seekhte hain to matan (text/content) and maqsad (purpose) dono samjhte hain aur yaad rakhte hain.
I watched the scene three times; that’s how much I loved it. Her reply is a subtle hint that Aima ne padh likh ke sab duboya hai. That was great.
It is established by now that Khajista is savage AF. Even though she is from the mountains, she doesn’t give two hoots about Aima or others or if they are any different. She holds her ground on her own. This is the kind of heroine we need, More power to you, Khajista.
Does this face scare someone else?
An apology? Really?
Aima isn’t done with Khajista yet, especially after the insult. So, she talks to Hassan and tells him of a way to avenge Khajista. Hassan asks for an apology. While Hadi is against this, Sabika still asks Khajista to apologize to Hassan for Hassan’s badtameezi (I know, irony!)
Our dear Khajista questions the logic, she doesn’t agree to apologize so easily. Sabika says that the Hassan has tried to commit a suicide, and the apology would be “for the greater good.” I don’t buy that logic, but Khajista does, because she doesn’t want to go back without getting a medical degree. I have immense respect for her determinition and her resilience. Khajista has her eyes set on the target, and nothing can deter her. So proud of her. I feel as if she’s my baby.
So, she apologizes to Hassan.
Khajista: Aap ne mujh se badtameezi ki, uske jawab mein maine hath uthaya, uske liye I’m sorry.
Hassan: It’s okay
Read that again. Even while apologizing, she has mentioned that she wasn’t at fault. This girl is so smart. Although, why has Hassan recorded her apology is beyond me. He is a psycho, and he scares me.
Darakhzai is fun
That was way too intense, right? On a lighter note, we see Darakhzai coming to city to take Khajista home. His little encounter with the warden was quite fun. Poor Darakhzai! He doesn’t get to meet Khajista as his name isn’t listed in “Visitor’s list”. I’m sure more drama is about to come.
This episode was good. Although I still have a problem with the amount of negativity and evil in this drama, the episode was fast-paced and engaging. I have praised Khajista a lot in this episode, so I must mention that brilliant writing of Misbah Ali Syed. I’m truly and genuinly impressed, even tempted to go and check other work by this talented writer.
