The other story in The Married Woman is that of Piplika (Monica Dogra) and Eijaz (Imaad Shah).

Much like the so many of The Married Woman reviews, we’d like to praise the leads as well. However, the writing deserves just as much credit for it doesn’t deepen any existing stereotypes. While there’s a lot that the show explores in terms of politics and homosexuality, it also sheds light on patriarchy. The social scheme that women are forced into, is one that is often not what they want.

Over the due course of the 10 episodes of The Married Woman, we see things that might go unnoticed in everyday life. However, it is the emphasis on those things from time to time that adds quality to the show. Many may find that the ALT Balaji show doesn’t bring anything new, but the fact is that it does, and it does so with a strong impact.
