The much hyped drama on the life of Qandeel Baloch is now being aired on Urdu1 on Thursdays at 8 pm.
My first impression: it tells the struggle of a common man (Read: woman)
As the episode proceeded, I realized it goes deeper into highlighting the real side of male chauvinistic patriarchal mentality. Yes, regardless of owning an exotic villa, or simply living on the streets, men will always misuse their power and strength. The male dominance will always exist despite PHDs and billions.
The drama explicitly demonstrates the dreams of every girl. The mesmerizing world of glamour and the good that money can bring is a fascinating achievement for almost everyone in the world. The show takes the viewer on a journey; a route to what life has to offer. At one hand, it shows the infatuation between the two genders and on the other, it shows how marriage can turn this liking into the quest of controlling the weaker sex. It shows the love of father and at the same time, it represents the genuine concerns as a parent. In other words, Baaghi plays a major role in exposing gender roles. The drama coherently depicts the barriers laid on females and their struggle with doing what they want. Baaghi highlights the hate associated with media as a profession where people are too meagre to recognize art.
Baaghi is that drama we all need to watch as a reminder of scrutinizing our dreams and related actions. The show has an amazing cast where Saba Qamar already has the ‘best performance award’ from us. Ali Kazmi is another actor worth praise. He is the shop owner who falls in love with ‘Fauzia Batool’.
The show has captured our hearts where we are resenting Fauzia’s engagement with Sajid and hoping for a miracle to happen in the next episode. Let us see how the story proceeds. Remember to watch it on Thursday, 8 pm on Urdu1.
