Nijaat (Urdu: نجات‎, English: Liberation) is a thirteen-episode Pakistani television drama serial produced by Pakistan Television Corporation.[1] The drama shows the different roles of women in Pakistan. It compares the women in the village to the urban women. It emphasizes on family planning, child labor and community health reforms.[2]

Plot[edit]

This drama is based on the interwinding stories of three families in a village in Sindh, Pakistan: Zareena, a health worker, and her family; Sajida and Huzoor Bakhsh, who have so many children that Sajida has very poor health; and Ali Asad, a local government worker (Assistant Commissioner), and his wife Tania. The drama follows their hopes and frustrations as they strive for a better future while trying not to sacrifice the past.[3]

Social Impact[edit]

A study was undertaken to evaluate the social impact of this drama on contract to Johns Hopkins University/Population Communication Services (JHU/PCS) by Aftab Associates (Pvt.) Ltd., Lahore, Pakistan. The support for this study was provided by International Development Research Center (IDRC), Canada.[4] The usefulness of findings from qualitative evaluations of Nijaat (and Alang-Alang in Indonesia) has led to further collaborations between JHU/PCS and filmmakers.[5][6]
