Our fourth top favorite drama of the season is Dar Si Jati Hai Sila. It currently airs on Hum TV Network and is 22 episodes in.
What’s so great about it?
There are a lot of dramas being written about abuse these days but few have gone into the depth of abuse the way this drama has. It’s very realistic and clevely written as to how abuse occurs in families where victims are silenced
What’s it about?
Sila lives in a house called Noor Manzil. She is harassed by creepy Joi Mama. Joi Mama is Bari Apa’s munh bola bhai. Joi Mama and Sila’s Mom, Saadia, may have had an affair but Saadia regrets it all the time and wants Joi to leave her alone. The big problem is Hatim, Saadia’s son, is Joi’s son and not Sikander’s. Another one of Sila’s tayas, who lives with his wife and daughter in the house with them, is a kind, intelligent, supportive man but no one really hears him much – everyone is just sort of under pressure by Bari Aapa. Zainy, Sila’s cousin, is outspoken and strong and encourages Sila to speak about what’s happening to her. Sila’s engaged to Raheel, her cousin next door, but the engagement breaks because Sila is always disturbed and afraid. Sila is then betrothed to Joi but thankfully that betrothal breaks too and Joi eventually marries Nadia, a girl from a poor family but very outspoken and belligerent. Sila knows about how Hatim is Joi’s son and often resents and hates her mother for it. Sikander, who lives in Canada and comes to visit and treats Saadia very badly, is still unaware. However, on the night of Zainy’s wedding to the man she wanted to marry, Nadia chances upon Joi and Saadia and immediately calls out Joi. A fresh wave of twists and turns comes forth.
