Pakistani society has problems deeper rooted in its foundation. At this point we have been seeing problematic saas-bahu, chick flic, Rona dhona is our dramas but few writers have taken the torch of enlightenment and leading the way forward. Some of the topics in our society are real but still brushed under the carpet very casually and considered taboo. Finally, the new-age writers are breaking the stereotype bravely. Amna Mufti is one of those writers whose drama Dil Na Umeed Toh Nahi touches many dilemmas of our society.

We can’t get running far based on what is our own – we should possess it one day, and soon, with the goal that the way toward remaking, correcting wrongs, and ‘not living outside of reality is started eventually.
The PEMRA notice
Furthermore, the saddest reality to digest is that the drama with so many dark realities of society got notice from PEMRA, due to its bold script. Even though according to the writer Amna Mufti, she knew she had this coming. For similar reasons, ARY, Digital, and GEO Entertainment rejected the script.
