Showbiz Pakistan review:
Honestly writing this series is a must-watch, the story is depicted amazingly, the actors have played their characters so well, and their delivery of dialogues, their conversation and screenplay are just amazing.
The beauty of this series actually lies in its cast which has taken the story to a new level of entertainment, for this web series I would say it’s just nicely done.
The story duly covers sensitive topics like patriarchy, harassment, homosexuality, women abuse but there’s nothing vulgar about it apart from few dialogues.
The scene where a mother is told about her son that he had pinched a woman’s butt, and when the mother goes back to her house and ask her son about it her husband interrupts and tells her he’s just kid and after all men will be men, this particular scene has drawn great attention of the audience.
The only drawback about this web series is its length because these ten episodes of one hour each are making it hard to watch with complete consistency whereas few people are saying the story doesn’t feel so real. After all, everything is happening so fast and easily for the characters, but indeed the web series is great and a must-watch.
