From the looks of it, it has even made the British Pakistani writer and journalist Mohammed Hanif jump on the binge-watching bandwagon. https://twitter.com/mohammedhanif/status/1293236759426408448  Mahwash Ajaz tweeted out about the brilliant performances and direction – pointing out that ‘Churails’ isn’t just making a social statement; it has a lot more to offer than that. https://twitter.com/mahwashajaz_/status/1293100369120235520?s=21  https://twitter.com/mahwashajaz_/status/1293100830627962880  One thing that most of the discussions over twitter had in common was of the show’s gripping storyline – that is both humorous and thrilling, making it for one of the biggest factors of ‘Churails’ appeal. https://twitter.com/Sarthak93182533/status/1293068843078709248  https://twitter.com/afiaqazi/status/1293157394009251840  https://twitter.com/UrduMom/status/1293125054687895553  Where journalists and critics take a wider perspective celebrating the brilliance that is ‘Churails’ for being the first-of-its-kind series coming out of Pakistan, with a creative freedom that has been denied to the industry for long, ‘Churails,’ it seems, works for more than just breaking the social norms.  As aptly put here, ‘Churails’ is a celebration of women deemed ‘difficult’ by society, giving them a voice they never had. https://twitter.com/anachatterjee/status/1293279446510772225  https://twitter.com/RajaSen/status/1293118298624679936  If not for all that it offers, ‘Churails’ still seems to have been enjoyable enough to indulge in without expecting much – because the thrilling show keeps you hooked, as it seems. https://twitter.com/FariaSays/status/1293134172064800768   https://twitter.com/pkpopculture/status/1293332978517540866  https://twitter.com/mahwashajaz_/status/1293051629625905153  So far, ‘Churails’ has managed to deliver its promise. Starring the talented Sarwat Gilani, Yasra Rizvi, Nimra Bucha, and Mehar Bano as the self-proclaimed witches, the show has garnered quite a lot of attention and good reviews for the unique and bold storyline, performances, and managing to call-out the misogynists with just the right amount of humor. Breaking free from the storytellers who were the bearer of tradition & not knowledge, bringing old wives tales that lacked depth – ‘Churails’ set its roots on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Bringing to screen the grueling realities of modernity without hiding behind escapist fantasies, the show has done a noteworthy job in combining humor with depth to bring a clear message.  The reign of patriarchy is over - and they want you to hear it, loud and clear.
