Although Pakistani dramas aren’t the first thing we think of when looking for entertainment, it appears that the trend is finally changing. The challenges that women in contemporary culture endure are explored in the drama Sar-e-Rah, which follows the enduringly popular Kuch Ankahi. Female taxi drivers are welcomed into public settings in the first episode.

The drama examines the problems that four women and a transgender man confront in society via the lives of these individuals. The life of Rabia, a woman who has been waiting for her aunt and fiancé Faraz to set the date of their wedding for five years, is introduced in the first scene of this episode.

Rabia makes the decision to become a cab driver after her father, the family’s head suffers an unexpected heart attack and it starts to affect the family’s household expenses. The programme didn’t hesitate to discuss the types of pushback and harassment women see from men in public settings.

A customer enters Rabia’s car in one moment and realises that a woman is driving. God’s anger is upon us, he begins, and he walks away murmuring that this is a sign of the Day of Judgment. When Rabia bravely ventures out into the streets to work, her family members, particularly her fiance, tease her with the proverbial “Log Kya Kahengee” (Woman, Go Earn Your Keep). Rabia responds forcefully, telling them that no one is nobler than a woman who chooses to support her family through work.

Twitter users have already praised Saba Qamar for her strong performance and praised the show for being timely and much-needed.
“I’m thrilled about Sar e Rah and the compelling, forward-thinking, and uplifting story it has sparked. So many subjects are being handled naturally and (so far) without being preachy or condescending. I’m excited for the upcoming episode, a drama critic named Aamna Isani wrote.

“Such a novel and potent idea. This show has an old-school Pakistani feel to it. Hats go to #SabaQamar for consistently attempting to be innovative, another user commented.

The emotional sequence in which a client advises Qamar’s character to never be scared to charge her customers the price she deserves and also encourages her to maintain her confidence strong and gaze back at the same men leering at her received particular acclaim from viewers.

It has been a long time coming, but it appears that Pakistani dramas are finally catching up with the times and beginning to write stories that reflect the lives and challenges of Pakistani women. We are interested to see how the next few episodes will develop as the drama is a breath of fresh air for introducing female cab drivers to the public realm.
