Pakistani dramas or film industry revolve only around women's marriage, divorce and gossips that oscillate between saas, maika, trapped with in-laws. Been a while now I have started to feel depressed, sad and very sad.
Show us some unusual stories. How about bringing women to front who are good hikers, against all odds chose to play, how about feminists who say , " cook your own food" , " do your own dishes" ? We are interested in knowing about women who break the taboos. Show us what it means to be a rebel, and how there are women who are punching patriarchy right in the face. There are hidden women behind the scenes who should be filmed, who should be seen as role models.
We are fed up with divorce, tears, bewafaii, no wedding proposals. ! We know these problems prevail.. show us how do we face them. Show us how to enjoy nature, be philosophical, enjoy deep conversation, show us those women who before the TV screen, with sigh! silently desire the film industries to be creative and mourn the curse of society being portrayed over and over where a woman is victimized. There are women who stand like rocks in the face of no proposals, they go out like random guys do, without make up, fearless, free ; they are into sports, hiking, thinking, writing, analyzing.
This world is wide open! There are working badass women despite this land feels like belonging to men only, wrap their scarf around, and see dead in the eyes of gender discrimination, smile at life with a hope that someday they will be included in the bigger picture of the society too, and they fight for it. There are women so unknown to you!! AAh!!
Please don't fix it to marriage and divorce only, for GOD SAKE
