Watch Aakhri Station

Kashf’s recent mini-series, Aakhri Station, received great critical claim and went on air on 13th February at 9PM on ARY Digital. It is a seven episode mini-series touching upon important social issues plaguing our society and aims to highlight women and gender specific issues in a sensitive and realistic manner. Like its predecessors Udaari and Rehaii, the serial is based on real life stories and narratives, developing strong female characters that are not shown as victims but as protagonists who deal with harsh circumstances. Depicting the concept that ‘women can be the heroes of their own stories,’ each episode is unique but brought together through a train journey.

Seven separate women who do not know each other coincidentally ride in the same train compartment. All of them are on a journey of empowerment as a means to change their circumstances and each of their stories illustrate important, yet often misunderstood, social issues.
