Written by Hina Huma Nafees, Munafiq explores the story of Ujala in the most unique of ways, as we explore her life in a marriage of inconvenience, and class issues. It does away with just being yet another black and white narrative of love and romance, and instead, adds a bit of dark ethos in the story. There are characters who have definite grey areas, and that has added quite a bit of interest in the storyline.


The Message

Exploring the existence of hierarchy between different social classes, Munafiq is one of the few dramas on air that have picked up quite a realist/socio-cultural theme and made it work by making it simpler for the audiences. There are tons of questioning the elite in this drama, and for those looking to ponder on the realities of life, Munafiq should be a good watch.


The Format

At a time when Pakistani dramas have stuck to the one episode a week format, 7th Sky Entertainment has revolutionised the market by making sure Munafiq airs every weekday! From Monday to Friday, you’re ought to find the drama running at 7 pm, and for fans, nothing could be a bigger delight!


The Production Value

A drama is as good today as its production value is, and that’s a fact. We all have our 4K televisions and even the smallest of intricacies is visible. That’s why it’s no surprise that Munafiq takes extra care of making the production value second to none as it keeps the set looking impeccably perfect!
