Hum Dono Episode 3 Written Update and Review

First up, a disclaimer: I watched the episode two days back but didn’t have time to review it until now. Office work keeps me engaged for 12-14 hours every day. There is little time or energy I am left with once I logout.


This episode begins with a nice montage as Mahi and Omer play with Palwasha. We hear Palwasha’s voiceover as she talks about Mahi and Omer, and how they have come to treat her like family, and how she brings happiness to them.

What she doesn’t tell, is that she also brings a lot of problem between them. Once, Mahi is watching a recipe (I presume) on her phone and Palwasha crawls to the socket nearby. Omer picks up the kid just on time, but than he lashes at Mahi. He calls her careless, that she could not keep an eye on the baby, that he would never trust her with the baby.

Mahi is hurt, so hurt, it hurts to see her hurt. On the other hand, Omer also ponders over his intense reaction. He apologizes to Mahi. She forgives, of course.

Or does she?

Later, we see Omer in the lounge while Palwasha is playing. Every now and again, he looks at Palwasha, so we know he is paying attention. A moment later, thought, Palwasha disappears. Omer panicks and starts looking for the baby. This is Mahi’s turn to lash at Omer.

“What were you doing? Why couldn’t you watch the baby?” she asks.

Ahem, the same questions Omer asks Mahi. So, Mahi has not forgotten about the incident, has she?

Palwasha comes back, again, relieving Omer. He starts to laugh, but Mahi isn’t amused.

“Why are you laughing?” she asks. “Get serious in life!”

Her words, her tone, her expressions… We just know that it isn’t just about Palwasha missing. The problem runs deep in this marriage. There are unspoken issues in this relationship that neither Omer nor Mahi are addressing.

“Take things seriously. You are so careless. I don’t like it…” Mahi adds.

Omer opens his mouth to say something, but Mahi doesn’t let him.

“Nahin achha lagta…”

Her reaction is so intense… I was like, typical woman… She keeps things buried deep inside. And then brings it all out the moment she is upset. Again, it makes me think that there are other issues that bother Mahi, and she blames it all on Omer whenever she gets a chance.

There are two important takeaways from this scene. One, the narrative hints that Palwasha missing suddenly could be because she is a jinn. Second, Mahi has issues with Omer but can’t express it.

The jinn theory is further strengthened as Shabana and Gulrez Khan go to see an abandoned, seemingly haunted place. Shabana thinks that the place might belong to jinns.

I am not sure if there are jinns involved in this story. I mean, do jinns’ babies use diapers? I don’t know. Honestly, I think the jinn theory is just to throw us off the track. But I could be wrong.

So, that was the episode. How did others like this one?

P.S. The baby is so so cute. The way she crawls briskly and stands up holding the glass-door, I just wanted to reach  out and pick her up. I am back to Pune, leaving my nieces 5 months and 11 months respectively. I miss them terribly.
