Unusual Female Characters

The female characters are unusual and progressive. The girls in the drama are confident, absorbed in the work they are doing and are not bothered by the criticism of their father and his friends who are always saying and complaining about not having a son. The drama breaks stereotypes like no other. It has intelligent and independent females who cannot do housework and do not feel the need to do so! On the other hand, the men are more independent in this department. Along with the progressive main female leads, young and old, the main male characters Adam and Sarmad have great respect for all these women. Even though Adam and Neha are constantly fighting, Adam does accept the fact that Neha is an intelligent young lady. Also, he is against the idea that having a son is a must or that girls cannot do things that men can. Even Tammana Nani believes in financial independence.


Hum Tum has a variety of characters and there is something new and likeable about all of them. Whether they are the independent females such as Maha, Neha, Milli, or Sasha or the male leads, all these characters bring something new to the table. The most important element of this play which stands out is the older characters such as Daddu and Tamana Nani. They are not just the older parents in the story but they are also characters with life and objective of their own. Both of them have their own careers and aspirations in life. They are full of life and question the idea that a person should stop living their lives to the fullest at a certain age. These characters are just as strong as most of the leading characters. Even though the writer has successfully broken so many stereotypes, she has done so while keeping things as realistic as possible. Obviously, comic situations are over the top, but characterisations are on point throughout.
