Despite all the backlash towards the subject matter and the drama serial, everyone was left moved by the emotional performance by Yusra Rizvi and Bilal Abbas. These two actors stole the show.

 

 

Dunk Subject Matter

The drama series followed our protagonist Professor Humayun, a victim of false sexual harassment allegations. The fictional series followed the hardships of a man falsely accused by his student.

 

Naturally, the series was heavily criticized online over choosing to dramatize false harassment claims in a patriarchal society like Pakistan where victims of sexual harassment are already silenced.

There are several instances of sexual harassment in educational institutes where actual culprits get away scot-free. Most recent examples include the Lahore Grammer School (LGS) expose and the University of Balochistan (UoB) scandal.

Dunk even projected how the ‘weapon’ required for a victim of false harassment claims to come through is trust. However, trust is what’s weaponized in real harassment cases as well.

Perhaps the lesson that should have been pushed is to trust no one but the evidence. What do you think? How would you have wanted this story to be told? Let us know in the comment section.
