The purpose of this study was to discover the effect of extramarital affairs being shown in such a light and dismissive manner on the female audience which the dramas seem to be representing. By interviewing five middle-class married women, the results showed that there were certain emotions and themes that arose during each individual‘s experience of watching these dramas. The emotions varied amongst each participant, along with their opinions and approval or disapproval of the patriarchal plots of each of the three dramas under analysis: Dil-e-Muztar, Choti Si Zindagi and Ghar Titli Ka Par. However, despite their differences, the participants were all in agreement that this depiction was not too far from the truth of our society.
