Sinf-e-Aahan: Women of Steel

Sinf-e-Aahan

From the catchy slogan to showcasing strong women from different cultural backgrounds across Pakistan, this show has got me hooked from just the first episode. Here’s why you should watch Sinf-e-Aahan too (if you haven’t already)!

1. What does getting married mean to you?

Sinf-e-Aahan, the star-studded drama features über talented actresses Kubra Khan, Ramsha Khan, Sajal Ali, Syra Yousuf & Yumna Zaidi. You’ll also get to see the pawri-famed girl Dananeer Mobeen in the upcoming episodes. Also, Srilankan actress Yahali Tashiya will be debuting in Sinf-e-Aahan.

Each female character represents cultures, backgrounds and mindsets that in this country & how each of them join the Pak army, despite discouragements from people.

2. Some impactful dialogues

For me, the highlight of the first episode was Rabia Safeer played by Sajal Ali’s lines after the ‘rishta-rejection’ where she reveals the ugly face of our society & how unjust it is for women. She describes how other girls in her batch were achieving their goals while she was meeting potential sasurals only to have them find flaws in her.

Other dialogue that really stood out for me was Ramsha Khan AKA Pariwesh Jamal’s where upon being stopped by her mother to hold a gun because it is ‘mardon wali cheez’, she says ‘aurat uthaegi toh aurat wali ban jayegi’, depicting there’s nothing a woman cannot do.

3- Rebelling against toxicity:

Two male characters that were introduced in the first episode played by Ali Rehman Khan & Asad Siddiqui as friends of Kubra Khan & Syra Yousuf, respectively, were highly toxic. When both girls expressed their desires to join army, instead of supporting them, the boys told them they were cut off. In other words, they were incompetent.

If it weren’t for Sinf-e-Aahan, we would have seen the female character agreeing with the male because of ‘male supremacy’ and probably getting married off in the next few episodes. But, this was not the case here. The girls were determined and focused on their goals – hats off to the team for pulling off such strong female characters!
