The wait is over and finally we have a Pakistani web series on an acclaimed streaming platform! Cake’s director, Asim Abbasi’s much-awaited web show Churails is all set to premiere on the newly relaunched Zee Zindagi platform of Zee5.
The web series stars Sarwat Gilani, Nimra Bucha, Yasra Rizvi and Mehar Bano as the four churails shown in the artwork posted by all the actresses. Designed by Samya Aarif, the poster is a statement in itself with guns, snakes, scissors, boxing gloves and all sorts of paraphernalia along with the boss ladies. You can also spot all sorts of abusive remarks written on a burka. Churails will premiere on 11th August on Zee5 Premium.
While much has been kept under wraps about the series, a few posters reveal what Churails mean: “wronged women looking to avenge themselves.” According to the official statement, ‘Churail’ is one who takes ownership of her life and is unapologetic of her being. She who breaks the glass ceiling and every prejudice that society has created against women. She who is strong, fierce and stands for what she believes in. The show aims to challenge the hypocrisy of patriarchal societies that vanquish women and their rights.
Talking about his series, Asim said in a press statement, “Zindagi’s commitment to truly original content that has a voice and can transcend borders, has provided me with the perfect platform to create a show like Churails. A story about strong women, embarking on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment and sisterhood, I believe Churails is a timely show with pertinent themes that will resonate with audiences globally.”
It seems that this one is going to be a captivating experience! Take a look at the motion posters as well as pictures:
Churails narrates the story of four self-proclaimed ‘churails’ who come together to open a covert detective agency to expose cheating husbands amongst the city’s elite. As their operations expand, they become saviours of abused, harassed and mistreated women. The gripping and fast-paced storyline covers myriad issues such as child abuse, sexism, domination of class and race.
