The First Episode of 'Sang E Mah' Won the Hearts of the Fans; Some Pashtuns Were Angry

While the first episode of the mega-cast drama 'Sang e mah' won the audience's hearts, some Pashtuns were unhappy with the drama and expressed their anger over the drama's story and character offerings. The first episode of 'Sang e mah' was released in cinemas on January 7 and 8, while the first episode aired on TV on January 9.

In the first episode, Atif Aslam's character 'Helmand' was praised, and people appreciated his drama debut performance as well the story of the drama, dialogues, presentation of characters, and imagery.

 

 

Most of the fans praised Atif Aslam's performance. Still, at the same time, people appreciated the roles of other actors, including Sania Saeed, and after the first episode of the drama was aired, the names of various actors remained on top trending on Twitter.

 

But while people praised 'Sang e mah,' people from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa expressed anger over the story of the play and the presentation of its characters, accusing the play of 'misrepresenting Pashtuns.' 

 

 

After watching the first episode of 'Sang e Mah,' Pashtuns tweeted that while the male character of the play was shown doing wrong by wearing a hat like Manzoor Pashtun, Sania Saeed was also misrepresented portrayed in Swabi women's clothing.

 

 

Some people shared the photos of the play's characters and wrote that presenting the characters, story, and scenes of the traditional tribal drama based on the ritual of 'Ghag' (forced marriage) is the best.

 

Some fans asked which part of Pakhtunkhwa is represented by the tradition of "Ghag" shown in "Sangmaha"? He also claimed that there was no such ritual.

Some people also talked about the historical significance of the chador worn by Sania Saeed's character in the play and wrote that they knew from watching the play that the people who were injured in the battle of Swabi with Sikhs in 1800 were killed by women. She was covered in her white chador, and to this day, the women there wear this bloody chador.

On the other hand, some people also linked the misrepresent of Pashtuns in the drama with the injustice done to the Bengalis.
