Ramazan special Hum Tum is breaking gender stereotypes and Pakistani Twitter loves it
Drama Hum Tum, a "2022, modern and Gen Z rendition of a hate to love story," is here for a month-long journey in Ramazan and after just two episodes has won over viewers with its refreshing content by reversing roles and smashing gender stereotypes.
Starring Ahad Raza Mir, Ramsha Khan, Sarah Khan and Junaid Khan in lead roles, the story takes on the concept of opposites attracting as couple Mir and Ramsha clash till their hate transforms into love. The duo play college-going cousins in the drama and chemistry students are well on the path to develop chemistry of their own.
The first episode aired on April 3 and a new episode will release daily at 9pm.
Hum Tum may only be at the starting line but it has already developed a fanbase as viewers rave about the drama, characters and the storyline. Netizens particularly pointed out the "role reversal" with the women portrayed as "independent and ambitious" while the toxic "chauvinistic" male stereotype has been thwarted.
Viewers also enjoyed the diversity in professions displayed in the drama, especially professions that are overlooked.
