The on-going drama ‘Cheekh’ has made quite a stir around the country and people just cannot stop talking about it.

Starring Saba Qamar and Bilal Abbas in the lead roles, the TV serial highlights the issues that are typically considered taboo by our society.

The drama revolves around the character of Bilal Abbas, Wajih, who killed her Bhabi’s bestie Nayab and confessed to the crime in front of his sister-in-law, Mannat, played by Saba Qamar. Soon after, Mannat files a case against him, and then he tries to destroy her.

Surprisingly, a number of netizens pointed out that the drama is a copy of Bollywood film ‘Damini’ with only a slight difference in the storyline.

Damini features Meenakshi Seshadri in the title role alongside Rishi Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Tinu Anand, Paresh Rawal and Sunny Deol. The Bollywood movie was about a woman who witnessed the rape of their house helper by her own brother-in-law. It furthers showed how the woman fought against the society for justice of the victim.

This similarity between Damini and Cheekh left the people all curious and they just cannot stop talking about it.

Have a look at what people have to say!

I wonder why most of the Pakistani Serials running have Indian movie plots for ex #Cheekh is like the movie #damini about honest daughter in law, #inkar is like #pink where no means no , #baandi is a poor version of #vivaah … Can’t we have #zindagigulzarhai or a #humsafar again?

Someone sat down and watched movie Damini, really liked it and then watched it few more times.
Then years later wrote drama serial Cheekh.

Damini is exactly what came to mind when I saw the 1st Episode of Cheekh- no reason however to not repeat creatively something as important as what is being said here. The cast is excellent- the narrative appears to be in very capable hands- so looking forward to how it plays out

Don’t know Damini but cheekh sounds interesting …police inspector created too much suspense for no reason lol

And no way I’m watching it now …why watch Damini when u can see Cheekh!! 🙃🙃

Someone told me Damini too was inspired by The Accused. I saw that one a long time ago and I don’t it was quite like that because the rape survivor sued her rapists herself. Damini is basically Cheekh so far.
