‘Hum Tum’ is so much more than a light-hearted comedy and here’s why everyone loves it!

The Ramazan special relays exemplary messages of friendship, property rights, mental health among other things

Entertainment Desk April 20, 2022

After the raving success of Suno Chanda in the past two years, screenwriter Saima Akram Chaudhry returned with two new Ramazan special romantic comedies this year to entertain audiences after they break their fasts. Hum Tum and Chaudhry & Sons see a talented bunch of actors in their dysfunctional families finding love as they go about their daily lives.

While both of these shows are a major hit amongst the masses, Hum Tum is being lauded for being much more than just a light-hearted comedy. The storyline follows a hate-turned-into-love trope as sisters Neha (Ramsha Khan) and Maha (Sarah Khan) grow up with their neighbours and family friends, Sarmad (Junaid Khan)  and Adam (Ahad Raza Mir) who are brothers.

Their love stories remain a focal point of the Ramazan special, but Saima made sure not to reduce other characters to the sole purpose of entertaining with loud jokes and quirky traits. Hum Tum is filled with conversations surrounding the rather hushed topics of depleting mental health of the elderly in our families as they age, as well as a message about how in case of no male heirs, fathers should divide property amongst daughters while they’re still alive to ensure they get their rights. Another amongst the favourite topics of discussion by social media users is the importance of friendships and support systems.

As the comedy-drama nears its end, with ten days left on screen, here are some messages that stuck with fans apart from the romance and striking chemistry between the couples in the show.
