If there’s one drama that has us stunned with its heart wrenching story line, it’s Ruswai. Ruswai tells the gruesome tale of a rape victim and each and every member of the cast has had us blown away with their acting.
Starting with Sana Javed who plays Sameera, we cannot praise her enough for how brilliantly she’s played the role of a strong lead who is shattered by tragedy. This is probably one of the best roles that Sana Javed has executed till date and within just 5 episodes, she has everyone admitting that she’s one of the best artists in the industry right now.
When it comes to the rest of the cast, they’re no less. Sameera’s father played by Muhammad Ahmed to absolute perfection. The younger sister played by Natalia Awais is spot on, she stole the show with disbelief and trauma of her own when she saw her sister come back. Osama Tahir’s silent but very strong reaction, Simi Raheel being the ever so protective mother and Mikaal Zulfiqar being the conflicted husband to the helpless Sameera. As viewers we felt every emotion in the latest episode, from the heart break to frustration to the helplessness and the realness of it all.
And the drama just didn’t have us blown but everyone who watched it was moved to tears after the latest episode:
“Ruswai” that airs on ary is by far the most realistic pakistani drama in years. Real issues portrayed just the way they’re dealt with in this country. Cannot appreciate the most beautiful and underrated Sana javed enough.

That’s the scariest part, the reality of the situation:
Just finished watching #Ruswai. Kudos to the whole team as especially to the Rubina Ashraf and Sana Javed for pulling it off so nicely. Almost made me cry in todays epi.
The show is showing some real problems that exist in our society.

Are you keeping up with Ruswai? Let us know in the comments below!
I started watching Ruswai thinking it was going to be about woman empowerment but I’m very disappointed. I’m on episode 17, sameera is not a strong character she’s an oppressed woman like Pakistani dramas always show. When are they going to show strong female characters?
The superb story with a perfect acting of all characters. the topic of exchange marriages has discussed so relate able and real.
