Yunhi Episode 29 Written Update & Review

Assalam Alaikum, dramatic lovers!

This is your host, Shabana Mukhtar, bringing you the delightful recap and review of the most recent episode of “Yunhi”.

In the latest episode of “Yunhi,” we witness the unfolding of complex emotions, as well as the clash of personal desires and responsibilities. Here’s a recap and review of the key developments:

Daniyal is so awfully selfish and one tone. He is rude to everyone. Even when he was tlaking to Husna, he reeked of arrogance. Now he blames everyone for coming in the way of his marriage with Husna, and he is still rude with everyone. The way he talks to his parents, Kim and Dawood. He behaves as if everyone owes him something.


Daniyal’s Selfishness Unveiled

The episode casts a harsh light on Daniyal’s character, revealing a depth of selfishness that leaves a bitter taste. His arrogance and rudeness are on full display, not just in his interactions with Husna but also with those closest to him. He seems to believe that the world revolves around him, blaming everyone but himself for the complications in his relationship with Husna.

Daniyal’s rudeness and arrogance are portrayed with remarkable consistency, which adds depth to his character. However, it also leaves the audience increasingly frustrated with his self-centeredness and lack of empathy . The portrayal of Daniyal’s character is both compelling and frustrating. His selfishness and arrogance make him a character viewers love to hate. I hope that his journey will be one of self-discovery and, hopefully, growth.
At the same time, Daniyal conveniently places blame on everyone but himself for the hurdles in his relationship with Husna. He seems to think that the universe conspired against his love story and that everyone around him is responsible for his woes. This blame-shifting behavior is not only unfair but also grating to watch. Daniyal’s tendency to deflect blame onto others creates a sense of tension within the storyline. It becomes increasingly clear that he is unwilling to accept responsibility for his actions, which makes him a complex and, at times, unlikable character.

Kim’s Rendezvous

Kim is helping Zulfi do some shopping for Iqbal. Correction: Kim had plans to help Zulfi do some shopping for Iqbal. But she has a distraction.
What is that, you ask?
Her ex-boyfriend George. George comes to Pakistan and asks to meet Kim. Our “bold and confident” Kim meets George. There conversation was a pain to listen to, as George had the stereotypical image of Pakistanis. Bhai, aaya hi kyu tu Pakistan? But the bigger issue is: Daniyal sees them together and clicks a picture.

Daniyal’s Little Blackmail

Showing George’s picture with Kim, Daniyal asks Dawood to arrange for 30 lakh rupees for a visa. Or else he will show Kim’s picture with George to everyone.

Dawood’s Dilemma

Dawood finds himself at a crossroads in this episode. He’s offered the opportunity to take charge of a new hospital branch in a village, a chance to make a significant impact on the lives of patients. However, this decision puts him at odds with Kim.
Kim wants him to come to USA but he doesn’t want to, and he really does want to take this opportunity to help the patients in the village, but there is no way Kim would agree to that. What would he do? Would he cave to love and tag along Kim? I really hope he doesn’t.

Dawood’s dilemma adds depth to his character. His desire to help those in need clashes with the expectations of his partner, Kim. It raises questions about the sacrifices we make for love and whether compromise is possible when two people have such differing aspirations.

Zulfi isn’t pleased to hear that Kim met George.
Kim: Dawood doesn’t mind.
Zulfi: Don’t push him too much.
Kim is the most arrogant girl I’ve seen. She’s so adamant and hellbent on changing people around her but she doesn’t want to change one iota. How’s that fair?


Kim tells Dawood about her meeting with George. Things escalate quickly. Kim is as arrogant as ever and Dawood is as understanding as ever. At times I want to lash at Dawood. Why is he so sweet and kind?

Some Rant

Can I say how much I hate Kim? I mean, sure, her character is consistent, and she is shown to be courageous and she never lies and all. But there is no growth in her person. Since day 1, she thinks that she is the only person whose opinion matters. Since day 1, she judges other people and mose of these assumptions are baseless. And, since day 1, she shows no consideration for Dawood-she doesn’t address him by his name, she doesn’t dress the way he likes, and she still thinks that moving to America is the right decision to make.

Kim: I won’t change my mind because you’re wrong (for wanting to stay in Pakistan).

And now, since she has met George, and even after Zulfi has tried to explain that it isn’t in good taste to meet ex-boyfriend; she wants to meet George because of her committment. What about her commitment to Dawood? When a woman enters in a nikaah with a man, as per Islamic rules, she shouldn’t meet anyone without her husband’s permission, and she shouldn’t step out of her house without her husband’s permission. It’s a very small ask from the woman, and Kim fails to do that. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.

Kudos for zero transformation. I don’t mind if the writer wants to show the main lead as an arrogant woman. It’s just that of late, most of the heroines are shown to be faux feminist-main strong hoon, main kabhi ghalat nahin ho sakti, and shit like that.

P.S. In case that was no clear, I was being sarcastic when I said “kudos”.


The standout character and scene is Suraiyya and her confrontation with Daniyal.
Suraiyya: What are you doing? Blackmailing your own brother.

The episode concludes with tension hanging in the air. Viewers are left wondering whether Dawood will follow his heart and choose the village hospital or give in to the demands of his relationship with Kim.

“Yunhi” continues to explore complex human emotions and dilemmas, making it a compelling watch. Daniyal’s character transformation and Dawood’s internal struggle promise to keep viewers engaged and eager to see how these storylines evolve in future episodes.


That’s my take on the episode. What did you think of this episode?
