Parizaad Has So Much To Offer

Interactions between characters is when we really get to see those heartwarming dialogues.

What the audience slove, in particular, is the narrative the drama presents. How there can’t be one antagonist behind a man’s woes. Therefore you can’t blame women for men being rejected.

The way the drama serial approaches toxic beauty standards is so mature and realistic, rather than painting everything with the misogyny of ‘good women and bad women’.


Too bad nothing can be perfect, and the fact that they cast a light-skinned actor and had him use blackface is a sore spot.
