Green Entertainment through Tumharey Husn Kay Naam is destigmatizing single mothers choosing to remarry and oh so wonderfully…read on to find out why its important!
Produced by Eyeconic Media in association with Multiverse Entertainment, the Green Entertainment series is directed by Saqib Khan who has Ghabrana Nahi Hai under his belt, and written by Umera Ahmed and Sarah Qayyum. The show stars Saba Qamar and Imran Abbas in leading roles along with Salman Shahid, Asad Siddiqui and Sidra Niazi, Maha Hassan and Haris Waheed.
Tumharey Husn Kay Naam is a timeless love-story woven in threads of melancholic romance, philosophy, nostalgia. Salma and Sikandar epitomize true love as a condition that defies all man-made social divisions and differences; the only condition that transcends the human soul beyond the realm of space, time and gravity; the only divine truth to this mundane existence. With recent episodes the makers merge also, the modern love story of their Salma and Sikandar’s children.
Green Entertainment Does It Yet Again!
Both Salma and Sikander suffered for long but turns out they were destined lovers. They finally meet again 27 years later and this time they can decide for themselves, they aren’t bound and held back by forces beyond their control. As the dead poet in Sikander comes alive again and the season of spring in Salma’s life returns, Green Entertainment has done it again…with such a delightful portrayal of parents remarrying and how children can add ten folds to their parents happiness.
One Simple Dialogue Moves Mountains
We usually always hyperfocus on kids getting embarrassed, judging their parents and society declaring them possibly being right in doing so. Sarah’s one dialogue: “My mother is getting married and I can’t be happier” is a delight to hear. She is cherishing her mothers choice, accepting it and supporting it. With such a simple dialogue Tumharey Husn Kay Naam is aiming to move mountains and so powerfully yet subliminally normalize single mothers remarrying.
We must applaud the drama for working towards destigmatizing a subject that remains taboo and a source of dilemma for many, although it truly shouldn’t be. It’s crucial to remember that our parents have lives beyond us, and as individuals, they also deserve the freedom to make choices for themselves, about their future happiness.
Sarah’s Happiness As A Daughter
The sheer joy and happiness Sarah feels for her mom’s decision is such a wonderful breath of fresh air. Umer feels like he hasn’t seen a crazier girl in his life but we wonder what’s so crazy about it? Our parents deserve to be happy too! As a daughter, she is defying all of society’s previously and presently held negative beliefs and opinions.
Even we didn’t judge Salma at all and why should we? Everybody has the right to second chances in their lives, at love and to decide for oneself. We also loved how Salma calls her daughter before anything else, and tells her. She wasn’t obliged to ask her daughter for any objections but she still does and that does goes to show the even more beautiful bond between the mother and daughter. Salma was so confident in her daughter’s love, understanding and her upbringing she knew her daughter would be nothing but supportive but she still asked her. “Mujhay pata hai wo mana nae karegi.”
Our Parents Shouldn’t Feel Any Unwarranted Guilt In Remarrying
The best part was Salma and Sikander aren’t shown to be feeling in any way, guilty about their decision and they shouldn’t either! Rightfully so. Embracing their choice contributes to dismantling the negative connotations and unwarranted guilt often associated with similar decisions made by other single parents. The drama successfully alleviates the guilt that many parents experience when embarking on the path of remarriage.
Divorce Is Not An End-All Situation
This also emphasizes the importance of children growing up without internalizing the notion that divorce signifies an end-all situation, where there is no future life for a woman or a man afterward. Even post-divorce, individuals have the opportunity for a new lease on life, love, and marriage. We must support our sisters, friends and women in general in situations like this.
