From time to time, we encounter a TV drama that tugs at our heartstrings, evokes emotions, and offers us a chance for introspection.

Kabli Pulao is one such masterpiece. With just six episodes released so far, this drama has already captured our attention with its captivating narrative, exceptional acting, and flawless direction. The camera work is an added bonus!

Kabli Pulao centers around Barbeena, an Afghan refugee widow (portrayed by Sabeena Farooq), who marries Haji Mushtaq, a middle-aged man known as Haji saheb (played by Mohammed Ehteshamuddin).

Haji saheb introduces her as the household help, not his wife, upon bringing her to his family home. However, suspicions within the family arise, hinting at a more complex story.

Without revealing too much of the plot, it’s safe to say that despite its limited episodes, the drama has managed to offer profound insights into the human journey, highlighting themes of resilience, cultural amalgamation, and evolving relationships.

Here are several life lessons that we’ve gleaned from Kabli Pulao thus far:

1. Finding Positivity in Adversity

Barbeena exemplifies resilience in the face of adversity. Having lost her beloved Baraan, she becomes a widow and seeks refuge in Mardan, Pakistan, along with her brothers. Her marriage to Haji saheb leads her to a life as a housemaid, where she must conceal her true relationship for her husband’s sake. Despite facing passive-aggressive behaviors, she responds with gentleness. Barbeena’s character underscores the idea that even in the toughest circumstances, humans can endure and persevere.

2. Embracing Diversity

At the core of the narrative lies the union between Barbeena and Haji saheb, shedding light on the biases and preconceptions we harbor towards those from different cultural or social backgrounds. Through Barbeena’s perspective, we experience the emotional turmoil arising from unfounded accusations due to her Afghan heritage. As the story unfolds, we witness transformation.

3. Cultivating Relationships

Kabli Pulao skillfully portrays the evolution of relationships. It reveals that initial awkwardness in new relationships can evolve into genuine connections. Characters begin to see beyond the surface, reminding us that relationships require time, effort, and mutual understanding.

4. True Partnership in Emotional Support

The central marriage between Barbeena and Haji saheb challenges conventional notions of love and companionship. The drama prompts us to reconsider our assumptions about age, culture, and societal expectations. It underscores that genuine love and respect transcend boundaries, and authentic companionship arises from shared experiences and emotional support.

5. Reserving Judgment

Perhaps the most pivotal lesson from this drama is to refrain from making snap judgments based on appearances. Each individual and family carries their own burdens. It’s easy to jump to conclusions. The internal struggles of characters like Barbeena, Haji saheb, Shamim, Chammo, Abdullah, and others remind us that kindness holds immense value.

Kabli Pulao isn’t just a TV drama; it’s a genuine social commentary. It holds up a mirror, urging us to reflect collectively as a society and as individuals.
