It is Jinn the main protagonist
Everyone perceive Jinn as dark and scary character. One who troubles humans and create mess in their life. Here we see a completely different Jinn family. They have values, look fabulous and are helping. Jinn itself is very bright and shiny in personality. It sings songs, plays piano and bansuri and is cheerful. It amuses others with his witty talk. Shehroz khan fit in character although his makeup was too bright for his complexion.

Not a love at first sight. Jinn never entered in mehro body. He never played with her. It is a pure cute love of a Jinn who has an empathetic nature. He understands troubles of family. Helped them to sooth. Make them lough. He helped mehro to regain her self value and respect.But Jinn himself never realized that he fell in love with someone. He get used to the family which started considering him as a member. Despite all rumors and gossips they lend him upper storey of their home. The girl who started hating her husband also get used to the enchanting personality of Jinn without knowing his reality. Jinn’s objective was to help family overcome trauma so never promised or wished to marry her. The Jinn mother tried to keep her son away from falling in love with human but in vain. Eventually Mehro falls in love with the jinn. Shabnam’s daughter, Giti also fell in love with Jinn. Here started a triangle love story. When Jinn truth was revealed, Mehro refused to accept that and was scared of Jinn now. On another hand Giti thinks Falak or Jinn is playing as Jinn just to scare her and keep her away from him. To take revenge from Falak she gave poison to mehro. Falak who decided to become human to support Mehro; an orphan now; returned and found Mehro dying. Then he realize how painful it is to loose all powers and face the pain. A jinn cant experience that pain. He was helpless, holding Mehro in his arms walking around streets to escape her from death. And eventually seeing her die.
He was not Deewana because he chose to love deeply. He was Deewana because he chose to become Human just for his love. Living powerless, facing ups and downs of life and still love others is what makes human different and superior and a Jinn cant bear it. For them easy to escape troubles and conquer what they want to.
