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?

3 Things I liked About Meray Humnasheen
I might have missed a few episodes of this drama, but I enjoyed most of it. The performances, the characters, the dialogues… everything was likable most of the time. Of course, every drama has it’s low moments, and Meray Humnasheen had its fair share of those unlikable bits. Let’s talk about the characters for a moment.
For the most part, Khajista was an endearing, bold and confident girl. She never hesitated from speaking her mind, she wasn’t the kind who would suffer injustice. Whether it was Haadi’s prank, or Aima’s villianous attempts, Khajista always had a retort, a come back, a witty reply. She is, in my opinion, one of those heroines that we can look up to. The first one in the list is of course Kashaf Murtaza.
Both the heroes were also good. While Haadi had always been goody two shoes, Darakhzai’s character showed us a gradual change. From a guy who couldn’t be “not angry”, a guy who always thought with his rifle, to a guy who would take up studies and mellow down just to impress Khajista, he came a long way.
Similarly, Hassan’s character also showed a lot of transformation. In the last episode: Hassan meets Amroz Khan. He actually wanted to talk about Khajista and Haadi, but as he finds about Darakhzai’s death, he doesn’t have the courage to talk about his own motive. Hassan is shown to be a man who can consider other’s feelings. From a boy who always thought about himself, and only himself, to a guy who can restrain himself from voicing his opinion and thoughts, Hassan has come a long way.
I may not agree with the story at some point, but the performances are so good. Whether it is Shehzad Shaikh or Haris Waheed, Salma Hassan or Farhan Ali Agha, Ahsan Khan or Syed Jibran, they are all perfect in their roles.
Whether it is Sang-e-Maah, Yeh Dil Mera or Meray Humnasheen, seeing the northern areas with its lush greenery and breathtaking view of mountains is always refreshing. I can’t go to these places, but I sure can enjoy them on screen.
