Isn't 'Sar-e-Rah' the need of the hour?

The drama Sar-e-Rah overall discusses the idea of embracing change and flying high by losing all the weight for the women of Pakistan.

Sar-e-Rah is an exceptionally well-written drama, which discusses the stories that are scattered all around us but unfortunately, we tend to shy away from shedding some light on them.

Sar-e-Rah will share the stories of women who are the victim of child marriages, girls who are being suffocated solely because of their gender, daughters who are unable to help their fathers as their honor will be at “stake” and transgenders/intersex persons who are being humiliated for their identity.

Belonging to a lower middle-class background, Rania, played by Saba Qamar always wanted to be a doctor, but her circumstances didn’t allow her to be so.

Sunita Marshall as Mizna was made a doctor just because she could get married into an affluent family and that’s exactly what happened. But after marriage, she has to face the stress given by society for not having a child.

Saboor Ali as Rameen is studying for her Master’s Degree. She is beautiful and stays updated with the latest fashion and beauty trends. She gets famous when one of her friends leaks her private fun video on social media and it gets viral.

Sarang’s father has always been very supportive and has trained his son to face the world with courage and resilience. Sarang is studying to clear civil service exams while fighting societal evils simultaneously.

Women around us are dealing with a lot of suffering, criticism, and injustice. As a society, our responsibility is to take care of them and give them their deserved space and rights.
