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 6 Written Update & Review
Assalam Alaikum everyone,
So, I watched the 6th and final episode of “Sar-e-Rah” today. I know, it’s been 23 hours too late.
Sar-e-Rah has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions, and the final episode was no exception. The show ended on a high note with all loose ends tied up neatly. The final episode was all about closure, and it was nicely done. However, there were a few points where I didn’t agree with some of the statements made by the show, but that rant is for later.
Let’s dive into the final episode of Sar-e-Rah.
The episode starts with Maryam getting an indecent proposal from Salman. Maryam is outraged, and she drags him, literally, to her boss’ office. She delivers a long, heartfelt monologue about how women are hardworking and shouldn’t be objectified. Salman is reprimanded, and both Omer and Maryam’s boss sympathize with the Maryam and her stance. This scene was a powerful reminder that women should be treated with respect and dignity. Hareem’s performance did not impress me, though.
Next, we see Sarang giving a speech where he talks about the problems he has faced and how he wants to bring a change in Pakistan. He discusses issues such as corruption and nepotism and urges people to take action. This scene was particularly inspiring, and it showed that even one person can make a difference if they have the passion and drive to do so. I am still not sure where this drama stands on the whole LGBTQA+ spectrum, and I am not a religious scholar, but from what I see, Sarang led a respectful life as a man, and not as a transgender, so they got that right. Muneeb Butt’s performance was nice.
Sarang’s conversation with Rania after the speech is the seque into Ramee’s life. In the following scene, we see Rania meeting Rammen. Later, Rameen meets her family and seeks their forgiveness and her share in the property. Her parents forgive her, and they distribute the property equally among their children. This scene was heartwarming, and it showed that forgiveness and acceptance can go a long way in healing family relationships. As for asking for a property distribution while the parents are alive, I’m saving that rant for later. Saboor Ali’s acting almost never impresses me, and this was no different.
Then, Amir comes to meet Muzna and takes her home. He tells her parents that he is “the problem” they can’t have kids. He has decided to financially support Shifa but Shifa will now live with her own mother. This scene was emotional, and it showed that sometimes, the best thing to do is to let go and move on. I like how Meekal’s character finally had something worth doing in this episode.
Finally, Rania gets a call from the social activist she met in the first episode. Her NGO is willing to financially back Rania if she has a business plan. This scene was empowering, and it showed that with determination and hard work, anything is possible. Rania has two(because she’s a heroine)-a driving school for women, and a cab service for women. Wallah, things are all fine now. Her parents, her brother, her phupho and even her fiance Faraz are happy for Rania. Who wouldn’t be? Ab toh woh maaldaar ho gayi hai.
While the final episode of Sar-e-Rah was overall a great end to the series, there were a few points where I don’t agree with the show’s statements. For example, the show seemed to suggest that forgiveness and moving on were easy, which is not always the case in real life. Additionally, some of the characters’ actions seemed unrealistic, such as Rania’s sudden ability to come up with a business plan and everyone else just having things sorted out conveniently. While these issues did detract from the overall experience of the final episode, they didn’t take away from the show’s overall message.
This mini series tried to cover a lot of issues, and keep a safe stance on many. Some of these viewpoints clash with Islamic values, some don’t. Overall, it was a nice series to watch because of it’s excellent performances, even if I don’t agree with some of the statements this series tries to make. I will probably draft another post about that.
In conclusion, Sar-e-Rah was a powerful and emotional journey from start to finish. The final episode was a great end to the series, and it tied up all loose ends neatly. While there were a few issues with the show’s statements and some unrealistic character actions, they didn’t take away from the overall experience. Sar-e-Rah was an important reminder that change is possible, and that with determination and hard work, anything is achievable. Overall, I would definitely recommend this show to anyone who loves a good drama and wants to see powerful storytelling.
Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you enjoy watching “Sar-e-Rah” as much as I did.
