Sang-E-Marmar

“Aurat par hath uthana mardangi nahi balke buzdili hoti hai” (There’s no manhood in hitting a woman but timidity), the quoted excerpt is taken from the on-going drama serial “Sang-E-Marmar”, being aired on HUM TV. Like the quote, Sang-E-Marmar also focuses on the typical mindset of feudal societies and its counterattack through script and picturization. Since its beginning, Sang e Mar Mar has emerged out to be a new TV sensation because of the broad canvas story raising social issues of honor killing, feuds, and patriarchy. The drama is picturised at beautiful valley of Swat, written by Mustafa Afridi and directed by Saif e Hassan.

Like the recent click Udaari, Sang-E-Marmar is an absolute wrap up of bold theme, potent script, and stupendous cast-acting. The story shows the inherited feud between two families Gulistan Khan (Noman Ejaz) and Saif ur Rehman (Tipu Sharif). Gulistan Khan is a strict rural man who dominates his whole family through his iron will and fear. Shameem (Sania Saeed) is his obedient loyal wife who put him as her first priority. Noman Ejaz has three sons and a daughter, Safi Ullah (Omair Rana), Aurang (Meekal Zulfiqar), Gohar (Agha Mustafa) and Bano (Uzma Hassan). Gulistan Khan is against the freedom of the woman and educated culture. He doesn't like his son Aurang because he is a cultured university student and against male-dominancy. One of the most important characters is Tora Khan (Masroor Paras), he is Bano’s husband but has some grudges against Gulistan khan.
Saif Ur Rehman killed one of Gulistan Khan’s sons, Gohar in the name of honor, he had doubt that Gohar and her sister Sheeren (Kubra Khan) are having affair. Gulistan Khan burst into anger and demanded the dead body of Saif Ur Rehman in return. The story took a new turn when Saif Ur Rehman’s wife (Kaif Ghaznavi) offered Sheeren in return to Gulistan Khan instead of her husband. Sheeren already had a childhood crush-love with Aurang (Gulistan’s Khan middle son) but her Nikah was done with Safi Ullah. So this has been a very tough moment for Sheeren, she couldn’t find her love and now living in Gulistan Khan’s house as a piece of paper.
Sang-E-Marmar delivers a strong message against women beating and patriarchy. The story portrayed in the drama is purely of tribal customs and its social issues irrespective of western culture and society. Tribal societies have traditional dogmas rather enlightenment and education. Such evil issues should be eliminated issues which we have in our society.
