The release of the ZEE5 original Black Widows is right around the corner. The show is essentially a crime thriller that revolves around three abusive husbands. A similar scenario was also seen in ZEE5’s Churails. Take a look at how Black Widows takes things forward that Churails had started.

Parallels between Black Widows and Churails 

Murder mystery

In Churails featuring Sarwat Gilani, Mehar Bano, Nimra Bucha and Yasra Rizvi, the four women are detectives who are looking to expose the city’s unfaithful and abusive husbands.

Shattering the stereotypes of society 

Both shows are extremely progressive when it comes to women’s rights. Churails is the first show in Pakistan which was so progressive and focused on some of the major social issues. In Black widows, the wives are initially shown as victims. However, they later break the shackles of society to prove that women should get what they want. The show majorly focuses on how women should not be a part of domestic violence and should raise their voice against it.
