Making dramas on sensitive issues has been what drama makers always wanted but due to the unreasonable barriers, the dramas that were either bold or religious were not the subject if you pick the history of Pakistani dramas. Now that there are a variety of channels, the sensor board seems to have updated its laws and regulations and probably because of the changing mindsets, people are now willing to see things with a broader outlook. It seems like a trend that religion is a good subject to make dramas on and definitely, dramas under this genre also excel and good examples are Paarsa, Khuda aur Mohabbat, Mi-raksam, etc. Express Entertainment is a not a very old name in the drama channels list of Pakistan but no doubts, the channel has done significantly progressive work in a few initial years of its career. Siraat-e-Mustaqeem is one of the most important dramas of the channel which attracted a good audience which, under an impression of witnessing a religious story, followed the show holily.
The drama however is not a religious one but a story about a man who falls in love with a girl in the rural areas while roaming here and there. The story gets its first twist when things do not work out in between them and he leaves the area and comes to Karachi. The story is totally different from this very point but what is to be appreciated here is the acting of all the celebrities especially Sami Khan and Firdaous Jamal. Urwa Hocane could have done better but yes, the flaws are so minute that you can ignore them even. Sami Khan has done something much better than he has always seen doing on screen and you cannot simply move ahead without falling in love with his character.
Overall, Sirat-e-Mustaqeem is a fair show that is interesting in bits and parts. It starts off well, goes downhill and then picks its pace again.
