Sar-e-Rah | Episode 5


The drama 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 over 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 a transgender who is being humiliated for his identity.

Sar-e-Rah Episode 5 Written Update & Review

Assalam Alaikum everyone,

I recently watched the fifth episode of “Sar-e-Rah,” and I have to say, it was a powerful episode. The drama continues to explore the theme of women’s empowerment and how women navigate the challenges of a patriarchal society.

This episode showed us the story of a self-admitted corporate slave Maryam who deals with misogyny, harassment, office politics and whatnot. This is the only story which doesn’t end in one episode. I appreciate that, because this story needs more time to unravel the lecherous person that is Salman.

This drama continues to address many ugly issues of our society, and continues to impress us. One thing that I appreciate about this episode is that it tried to cover so many women-centric issues. It showed how women in the corporate world face sexism and discrimination, but it also showed the struggles of every woman who has to step out of her house because of her majboori. The drama did an excellent job of highlighting the different challenges that women face and the different ways that they cope with them.

The two male characters with Maryam, Kashif, and Salman, were also interesting. They showed just two types of evil men, but that’s more than enough for us to know the plight of women. The way they objectify and belittle Maryam

is both frustrating and heartbreaking.

Overall, “Sar-e-Rah” is a well-crafted drama with excellent performances from the cast. The themes of women’s empowerment, gender inequality, and social norms are explored in a way that is both realistic and engaging. The drama is doing an excellent job of shedding light on important issues that are often ignored or overlooked.

I am looking forward to seeing how the story progresses and how Maryam continues to fight against the odds. It is inspiring to see a strong female character who is not afraid to speak up and fight for what she believes in.

Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you enjoy watching “Sar-e-Rah” as much as I did.

Assalam Alaikum!
