As the drama ‘Mere Humsafar’ nears a close, dropping its 28th episode just yesterday- Twitter applauds Farhan Saeed for smashing the ‘mard nahin rotay’ stereotype through Hamza’s character in the drama.
While most Pakistani drama heroes are still stuck in toxic masculinity, Hamza breaking down in the drama- smashing the “men don’t cry” stereotype- and bravely confronting his pain and heartbreak has left fans in love with him.
The drama released episode 28 featuring an emotionally charged scene where a heartbroken Hamza faces his wife Hala – choosing to talk through difficult and painful emotions “as equals”- instead of just shouting, screaming and putting up a maniacal show of power and anger. He holds her hands and cries, communicating with emotional intelligence instead of just bottling up difficult emotions as men are ‘expected’ to.
Fans took to Twitter to express how touched they were by the scene, saying “let men be soft” because “tears do not belong to any gender”.
“Mard Nahi rotay”, this line doesn’t let men express their emotions. Men do cry, they feel pain too, and they have hearts too, because of this stigma men suppress their emotions. Yes, men are meant to be strong but they bleed when they fall. #merehumsafar #FarhanSaeed pic.twitter.com/8avCbaagMc

Hala – “kuch toh bolo hamza gussa hi karlo ya gali hi dedo ”
Hamza – “kaash kar pata hala kaash ”

#FarhanSaeed did an excellent job in yesterday’s epi, the EXPRESSIONS, the DIALOGUES and the sorrow his eyes conveyed! Everything was Amazing. The best thing about yesterday’s epi was that
nothing was overdone, Hamza’s PAIN and ANGER were just on point.#MereHumsafar pic.twitter.com/fs7nmjHgNB
