Churails, is a Karachi based web series. It have ten episodes that are woven perfectly to make an amazing show. The show is about a Karachi-based group of women, who have just one motto, and it is to take revenge from men who have made their lives miserable. Directed by Asim Abbasi, Churails is all about feisty, feminist, fast-paced fun. ‘Mard ko dard hoga’ isntye tagline of the show and this is what they promise.
Concept: Churails is a ZEE5 Exclusive Zindagi Original series starring Sarwat Gillani, Mehar Bano, Nirma Bucha, and Yasra Rizvi. Set in Karachi, the series revolves around four young women who form a secret detective agency under the guise of a fashion store named ‘Halal Designs’ with the purpose of finding and exposing unfaithful husbands amongst Karachi’s elite.
Script: The show is all about 4 women, Sara (Sarwat Gilani), Jugnu (Yasra Rizvi), Batool (Nimra Bucha) and Zubaida (Mehar Bano). All four of them belong to a different societies, they live a different life throughout but there is one thing in common, they all are let down by the patriarchy and pre-defined norms of society. Circumstances bring them together and than a boutique named Halal Designs is born. The store is a way to camouflage the spy agency, run by these four women, to help other women in pinning down their cheating husbands.
The scripts shows glimpse of their lives, how they come together, the making of Halal Designs and how their life proceeds after that. The story have many ups and downs from the characters life that keep you glued throughout.
Screenplay: Churails is created sets if Karachi and shows the spark and shine of high society of Karachi. The series have some amazing songs with beautiful lyrics. All soundtracks add a new oomph to the narrative. Mo Azmi’s cinematography is par excellence. The beautiful play of different colors and contrasts take the entire series a whole new dimension. The story goes well with #MainChurailHoon. Waitching it is a treat.
My Critique: Churails is a story of bunch of fiesty women who themselves take a responsibility to teach abusive men. They are unapologetic towards their attitude and that’s why Churails is an unapologetic and unbashed tale. The story give the patriarchal society a very strong message, that they will not forget.
I love the way this show presents the issues related to patriarchy and shows how women uproot the system of patriarchy. The show is all about challenging patriarchy and misogyny.
It’s very beautifully conceptualized show, and its executed perfectly. The way story is executed, it will keep you glued throughout. The performance by entire cast is terrific.
