“Hum Tum” stars Ahad Raza Mir, Ramsha Khan, Junaid Khan, Sarah Khan, Uzma Beg, Mohammad Ahmed, Farhan Ali Agha, Adnan Jaffar and more. The story has been written by Saima Akram Chaudhry and directed by Danish Nawaz. “Hum Tum” isn’t a storyline driven show where one can hash out the goings-on in each episode. Rather, this is comedy based and slowly progressing with relationship-building as the basis. Still, in episode 3, we see Adam and Neha continue to clash, Sarmad continue his attempts at impressing Maha, Dadoo (Mohammad Ahmed) continuing his career as a TikToker and, finally, Neha showing true female empowerment when she tackles a harasser fearlessly in public. The pace of this episode keeps the audience hooked, not only with its fresh presentation, but also funny, humorous quips without being over-the-top comedy.
While the two chemistry students, Adam (Ahad Raza Mir) and Neha (Ramsha Khan), cannot stand each other for different reasons with entirely different personalities, they cross paths quite often due to their being neighbors, their fathers’ friendship and the fact that Neha’s father is Adam’s mentor. With Neha’s public beating of a young man going viral, Adam is recruited to convince Qutubuddin (Adnan Jaffar) to go easy on Neha – and Adam’s words in Neha’s favor come as a great surprise, leaving Neha shocked…..and untrusting. The banter between Adam and Neha was initially forced and awkward in the premiere, but with each episode, it’s only getting better and better. Ahad Raza Mir and Ramsha Khan’s comedic timing is great and the two work really well together.
The relationship between Sarmad (Junaid Khan) and Maha (Sarah Khan) is one of the highlights of the show, their characters so vastly different from one another that watching them together is automatic entertainment. While Sarmad is a chef who loves to win others over with his cooking, Neha is incredibly diet and calorie conscious. This clash is what makes these two so root-worthy as we watch Sarmad in his attempts to win over Neha, who has been the object of his affection for quite some time. Sarmad is a very good, down-to-earth guy and his belief system is progressive, so this is an immediately likable character – and Junaid Khan is playing the role in a very sweet manner. Sarah Khan suits her role as well and Sarah and Junaid’s chemistry is great.
Danish Ali also makes his introduction as an actor in this drama, though his role appears to be a small, minor one as he is seen as Adam’s friend at university. Still, he is one of those entertainers who is always a joy to watch. Adnan Jaffar and Farhan Ali Agha are brilliant in their roles as well, playing an odd couple sort of best friends with Qutubuddin highly educated and principled while Sultan (Farhan Ali Agha) is educated, but lazy and scatterbrained. Both men are thoroughly entertaining in their scenes, particularly when together. There’s a lot to praise about “Hum Tum” and the episodes only seem to be going from strength to strength. “Hum Tum” is a winner!
