Amidst the barrage of new shows nowadays, we often depend on recommendations from our friends or family. I got to know about this show from a school friend who was going gaga over this Pakistani drama with strong female lead characters. Last weekend I binge-watched this drama and decided to pen down my thoughts for you all.
We have to give it to ZEE5 for constantly adding such engaging content and making sure to appease their audience with such a fabulous collection of shows or dramas.
Cast: Sarwat Gilani, Nimra Bucha, Meher Bano, Yasra Rizvi
Director: Asim Abbasi
The name of the show “Churails” sounds quite intriguing and brings your undivided attention to this drama. There are ten episodes of this drama on ZEE5, each being an hour-long, approximately.
Churail which translates to witches in the English language is a depiction of women who neither give in to the unfair social norms of the society towards women nor bow down to the limits set by the patriarchal world.
Four strong female characters Sara, Jugnu, Batool, and Zubaida manage to get the attention of their audiences from their first appearances in the drama. The show is set in Karachi, Pakistan.
These four women come together to run an agency to hunt cheating men. The narrative of the story moves fast and keeps you hooked to know the characters well. The show unmasks the bitter side of the search for the truth. I absolutely love the background score of this drama and the cinematography by Mo Azmi really sets the mood too. After watching the resilient spirits of these women I can proudly say #MainChurailHoon
After ages, I found a binge-worthy drama with such strong women characters and yet so close to reality. The show is not men vs/ women but it challenges patriarchy and misogyny. The acting skills of all four women are absolutely brilliant. The dialogues are so well written that they leave quite an impact on you.
It is definitely one of a kind series to have premiered on ZEE5 originals with perfectly placed cliffhangers and indeed a must-watch for everyone.

I watched the series and enjoyed watching it. There are so many characters one can relate to and what I liked the most is the strange resemblance of Pakistan to India. Lovely characterisation and casting.
This show has a compelling plot that highlights the journey of these women. Churails name itself is so dramatic and instantly gets your attention.
I have been binge watching on zee5 this weekend, just finished a series last night! reading this in time for starting something new today.
nice review – enjoyed reading it.
I have watched this show and loved it. After a long time found something interesting to binge-watch on TV. But I must say that ZEE 5 shows & movies are way better than the others.
This is one of my most favorite women-centric shows of recent times. I love the fact that such liberating shows are coming from the land where females are suppressed. Glad to see you have too liked and reviewed it on your blog.
I have watched churail and I love the concept so much. It is a women centric show and the storyline is the highlight.
I have heard a lot about Churail. I like the shows which highlight women empowerment.
This sounds super! I had been hearing the name of this show but knew nothing about it. But after reading your review, it’s a must watch. I love the idea… And that of calling these women churails….I have always believed that witch burnings were actually persecutions of smart women who challenged patriarchy.
Thanks for this wonderful review..and it’s so uncanny..only today I was trying to locate it on ZEE5 but my search option isn’t working. It is on my view list for sure

I have watched this show; trust me. Initially, I thought it would probably have some horror plot, as the name Chudail suggests. I was amazed to see the way they have encouraged the power of women throughout, indeed incredible.
