Mere Humsafar Episode 1 Written Update & Review

We meet Riffat Begum and her family. Raees is an obedient son who doesn’t listen to his wife, at all. 

Shahjahan gives her own money to buy Hamza’s books, but Raees gets his mother’s medicines instead. Things get out of hand soon. Everyone argues, and Dado is about to leaave the house when her youngest son Nafees comes home. He is divorced from Hala’s mother, re-married to a foriegner and now wants them to take care of Hala.

This family is dealing with problems, a lot of financial problems. She wants Raees to take advance salary, but Raees doesn’t agree. Jalees was shot at a bank robbery, and now sits at a shop. Nafees doesn’t help them at all.

Nobody is willing to look after Hala. So, Nafees sort of bribes his mother with golden jhumkas. Bas, ho gaya faisla.


This drama brings us an usual pairing of Hania Amir and Farhan Saeed. The first episode does its job well. It does a fine exposition of Riffat and family. We know the backstory of all the characters, and we also know the archetype of every character. We also know where the story will go – a cousin romance with tayi chachi jhagda. 

Since Hala is a burden on Shahjahan, and Raees fights with Shahjahan over littlest things, it is certain that Shahjahan would hate Hala. But, after growing up, if Hamza falls in love with Hala, the clash is inevitable.

Waseem Abbas is playing a version of Tameezuddin from Bebasi, which he had played earlier as Imtiaz in Kashf, and Murtaza in Zindagi Gulzar Hai.

Saba Hameed, uff… what a performance as a jali-kati aurat… Tara Mehmood doesn’t look different from her Salma from Amanat, or Kaneez from Chupke Chupke or even Masooma in Suno Chanda. This woman doesn’t age at all. Argh, envy…


Aren’t Saba and Tara too old to play moms to such young kids?
