Being beautiful has been a virtue in cultured and civilized societies. But the same thing in ugly and stinking societies becomes the trial of your fate. In our society, a woman faces miserable experiments as mother, sister, daughter, wife, servant or working woman if she has a beautiful face and these horrifying stories never comes out because the victim herself and her family wants to keep it a hush.
Haqeeqat a series of disjoint stories to highlighted the good, the bad, and the ugly of a woman. Sometimes, she is the victim. Other times, she is just pure evil.

Cast & Characters
Ghana Ali as Sonia
A wife seeking her husband’s attention. They are childless and that adds to the bitterness in their relationship.
Azeem Sajjad as Amir
Sonia’s philandering husband.
Hassan Niazi as Muzammil
A shrewd businessman who always has a business plan.
The story begins as Sonia and Amir argu. She accuses him for not spending time together. He accuses her for not giving him a child.
Sonia does car deals and Muzammil is a good friend. He also likes her.
Amir decides to marry his girlfriend Anila. Brokenhearted, Sonia confides in him and he sweet-talks her into getting a divorce. She marries him.
Her mother’s property. Sonia tries to play safe – that we should split the money and invest in separate businesses; tht we should open a joint account; but he outsmarts her.
What’s his angle? ‘Dealing’ his wife with his friends. Ewww!
Her friend helps her escape and takes her to a police station. The police officer is Muzammil’s friend and talks rubbish instead of filing a report.
I would like to say it again – nothing new in the story. Remember Akhri Station? Similar story was executed in a much better way in that.
I was hoping there would be a redemption arc. There was none. She braves and reports her story to media. Muzammil leaks her videos and her story is twisted to show her in bad light. In today’s #metoo age, this story was necessary.
I have seen Azeem Sajjad in Ehd-e-Wafa, as Shahzain’s father. After seeing this drama, there are a few observations.
- Different clothes and getup can change a person so much. I mean, look for yourself.
- He looks so young to be Shahzain’s father, doesn’t he?
Ghana Ali, the lovely Ghana Ali. She impressed me in Besharamand in Bahu Rani Saas Sayani. This performance is also good. I like her, very much.
Hassan Niazi kills it as a menacing, shrewd, wife-beating husband who rents his wife for money. Great performance, awful character.
Until next time, allah hafiz.
