Meray Paas Tum Ho Memes Saying It All about Drama
Let’s begin by brief summary of the serial. Meray Paas Tum Ho starred Humayun Saeed, Ayeza Khan, Adnan Siddiqui and Hira Mani in lead roles. The story revolved around Danish played by Humayon Saeed whose wife Mehwish played by Ayeza Khan leaves him because her husband can’t fulfill her dreams of living a luxurious lifestyle. After separation Ayeza starts living with Shehwar played by Adnan Siddiqui who later ditches Mehwish making her repent her decision. Other main characters of the story include Rumi son of Danish and Mehwish, and Rumi’s teacher played by Hira Mani who later wants to marry Danish.
Briefly, it was drama’s story, soundtrack, gripping but controversial dialogues and the brilliant performance by lead actors that made it popular. Finally, all that folks waited was whether Danish and Mehwish will patch up or not.
Most of the Meray Paas Tum Ho memes were from the last episode because Danish the lead character had died of heart attack and there was no happy ending.

Danish’s death in Meray Paas Tum Ho was not shocking for everyone as they knew that this was the likely fate of hero, in every Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar drama.

Pointing out those technical flaws…
Folks were really worried about the fate of Rumi as his father died.

What was so anti-women in Meray Paas Tum Ho
As mentioned earlier the story of Meray Paas Tum Ho was much tainted with controversies. What drew the attention of critics was the dialogues that depicted how it was imperative for women to be loyal or otherwise they were not women enough. While proponents defend that Meray Paas Tum Ho had nothing to do with portraying women in bad taste. The drama only showed the story of a man whose wife leaves him for a wealthy man. While there was nothing wrong about showing a woman choosing wealth over her lover, the real problem was those derogatory lines about women who don’t remain loyal with their men.
With respect to the story, there were indeed several loopholes in Meray Paas Tum Ho but drama surely was a winner for entertaining the viewers and raising a debate on where do Pakistani dramas stand in terms of doing justice with the women characters.
