Hum Kahan Kay Sachhay Thay Episode 5 Written Update

Let’s see what this brings to us.

The epsiode begins with another lie. Mashal tells Aswad that she’ll play guitar. Aswad is still pondering over the past and why Mehreen stopped taking any interest in music. The poor fellow doesn’t know just how many lies are wrapped around him.

Aswad clearly likes Mehreen but he judges her more now because Mashal has told him a million lies.


Mehreen meets Safi’s mother. She seems a nice lady, and also mentions that Safi didn’t let her remarry. It reminds Mehreen of her troubled past. That distant look on Mehreen’s face will tug your heartstrings for sure.


Aswad has brought several gifts for Mehreen. We see a little cute moment between them. Aswad wants to talk to her. It’s about the same old topic that Mashal has fed to him a million times–that Mehreen has many boyfriends. Mashal comes just then, as is the case in most dramas. Saleha spots the cigarette’s mark on Mehreen’s sleeves.

Aswad tells Saleha that Mehreen smokes. Saleha doesn’t believe him, of course.

I don’t understand why Mashal goes to Mehreen’s room? I mean, don’t they have any concern for privacy? She reads Mehreen’s diary again. And, she gets fodder to torture Mehreen further. Mehreen should either stop writing diaries or start locking her stuff. Doesn’t she know how evil Mashal is?

Mashal is psycho, gone case. Look at her face.

She’s so paranoid about everything related to Mehreen. She fights with Aswad, then calls him, goes out for coffee, and again fights about Mehreen. Why can’t you just talk about yourself.

Parting Thoughts

I love Laila Wasti’s expression when she talks about Mehreen. And that peach colour looks so good on her. Radiant!

Yet again, love the bond between Saleha and Mehreen.

Kudos to Kubra Khan. She has done a phenomenal job showing one expression at one second and then immediately turn it 180 degrees around.

  1. I’ve read the novel, and I’m eagerly waiting for the time that it digresses from the novel’s storyline.

    When I review the drama, I try to dive into it as if it’s real world. Mashal entering Mehreen’s room can also be explained as a simple line: because that’s how the story will progress. It’s a plot device.

    As for Aswad, I’ve already mentioned in the book review post that he’s the bigger culprit for trusting Mashal blindly and everything that she says.

  2. Zaman says:

    Mehreen does lock her room. Mashal has somehow (I’m guessing via her mother) managed to get the keys to Mehreens’ room. If you watch the scene again you’ll see Mashal enters with a set of keys. Also the fact that Aswad gets a unilateral view of mehreen from Mashal is disturbing. Saleha who supposedly loves Mehreen so much and wants her as a daughter-in-law seemingly doesn’t speak to Aswad about Mehreens talents, her achievements, her good grades, etc throughout his years abroad and even back home. It is weird how easily Mashal passes off everything as her own. But then again the writers are working off, of the material from the novel. Though we know they’re going to digress from the novel at a later juncture because in the novel Aswad doesn’t get old, but we have seen Usman Mukhtar make a Instagram post in Aswads old avataar. So I want to see how that has been weaved into the story. I kind of have a feeling that they will show how their stories progressed in the later years to give the drama a more conclusive ending. Whereas in the book it ends with Aswad making a resolve. Won’t mention more because I don’t want to give spoliers, as you seem to have not read the novel.
