Sinf e Aahan – First Episode, First Review
Sinf-e-Aahan – The first episode not only introduces us to the 5 main characters but also their current situation. Just when we thought Sinf-e-Aahan would be a feel-good drama about female soldiers, Umera Ahmed proves us wrong. The drama takes on the task of highlighting the challenges & mind blocks faced by girls in our society.
The OST at the beginning sets the right tone & it is with warm feelings & a hopeful heart that we step into the story that is Sinf e Aahan.
Sinf-e-Ahan – More Than Just A Story
Umera Ahmed aptly portrays the prejudices & issues faced by today’s women, shadee being the main priority for girls, even if they excel academically &/or professionally.
Parents often underestimate their daughters’ strengths & potential, perhaps being the first wave of discouragement.
Even if women perform better than their male counterparts, they are unable to gain access to the same opportunities. Moreover, the pressure of getting married often leads to girls being taken advantage of in relationships, despite seeing many red flags.
Super performances with a fast-paced script kept us engaged & before we knew it, the drama was over.
We wish Shaista’s Pashto accent continued throughout the drama. Also, it was a bit confusing as the accent did not carry through to the rest of her family, especially her mom.
The first episode has aptly set the stage for what’s to come and we’re expecting all eyes are going to be on our 5 Women of Steel to carry us through an intense watch!
