Pakistan drama serial Hum Tum’s hero, played by popular actor Ahad Raza Mir, is not a chauvinistic or toxic character.
Previously, in Pakistani drama serials, the hero characters frequently are represented in a negative light. They are either toxic, chauvinistic, or misogynist. This may illustrate a reflection of a fraction of our society, but also promotes this kind of behavior. Worst case scenario – set a precedent for the young audience.
In Saima Akram Chaudhry’s latest drama serial, Hum Tum, the lead character comprise none of the characteristics mentioned above. Instead, the drama serial shows supporting male characters. Other drama writers must take inspiration from Hum Tum and produce similar positive characters.
A user on the micro-blogging site appreciating the writer wrote in a tweet, “Unlike previous toxic and chauvinistic leads of Ramzan plays, I am so freaking glad Saima ji ensured her hero this time is actually a man with a spine who, despite “hating” the heroine doesn’t put her down or talk behind her back.”
