Hania Aamir rules this show. She is just spectacular as Rumi, a chirpy and extrovert girl who doesn’t hold back from speaking her heart out. Rumi is funny, bold and sensitive. She steals the limelight here.

Then there is yet again another brilliant performance by Ramsha Khan (who plays Hamna, Rumi’s elder sister) to mesmerise you with her character that’s exactly opposite to that of Rumi.

The plot revolves around the marriage of both sisters. Things take a very awkward turn when Humna’s ex-boyfriend ends up marrying Rumi to seek revenge on Humna but falls in for the younger sister. Many uncomfortable encounters and the after-effect of making rash decisions to seek revenge lie as the undertone of the show.


Released in 2011, Humsafar is about Khirad (Mahira Khan) and Ashar (Fawad Khan), who are forced to marry due to the untimely death of Khirad’s mother, who is also Ashar’s aunt. Despite being cousins, the class difference between middle-class Khirad and millionaire Ashar causes rifts between them. The show is beautifully written and has many heart-touching scenes. The OST of the show was a huge hit and, even now, is one of the most popular songs in the charts by Qurat-ul-Ain Balouch.

This show is based on the novel of the same name by Farhat Ishtiaq.
