International Women’s Day witnessed women marching across the country to celebrate womanhood, demanding equality. Alongside this, Shoaib Mansoor in collaboration with 'Superstar' actress Mahira Khan dedicated a song to all these women of indomitable will.

The song ‘Dua-e-Reem’ is a unique take on one of Allama Iqbal's’ poems ‘Lab Pe Ati Hai Dua Ban Kay’. The verses of the original poem have been tweaked, and ladies, as seen in the video, are singing it to give prayers to a bride to be (played by Mahira Khan) during a sangeet ceremony.

Ladies in the song pray for the bride’s strength to tolerate her husband’s brutalities without complaints and submit to all his demands. Mahira Khan, who doesn’t approve of this prayer makes a prayer for herself to lead a loving life with her husband.

Directed by Shoaib Mansoor, the song is sung by Damia Farooq. Dua-e-Reem is a prayer to all women, an anthem that celebrates their strong will and supports their demand for equality.

The powerful lyrics paint a picture of a progressive mindset where a woman is not to be treated as a man’s shoe. She deserves to be treated right, and with respect. What do you think?
