Slow, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if You don’t mind seeing a play that is spoken 80% in the Pakistan language, with some very bad actors, and others speaking so low.

Don't see it if You want to see a well acted, and well written play.

Heart-warming, Profound, Masterful, Refreshing, Resonant

See it if Heartwrenching and raw. documents the lives of brown folk navigating through sexuality and mental illness so beautifully brought me to tears

Don't see it if hard to relate to if you're uncultured, so dont see it if you're not empathetic and dont like brown people or their stories Read more

Thought-provoking, Profound, Masterful, Great writing, Enchanting

See it if You’re ready to better understand the experience of Pakistani Muslims in the U.S. through amazing and fresh writing and acting.

Don't see it if You don’t want to be enlightened and you’re not ready to learn about a new group of people.

Thought-provoking, Profound, Must see, Intelligent, Delightful

See it if you care abt -dialogue surrounding underrepresented communities -supporting young upcoming POC creatives -family narratives -mental health

Don't see it if you're not ready to cry or really consider the way shame is perpetuated in our society/lives/the home. or if you want to stay ignorant.

Don't see it if culturally eye opening to better understanding the south Asian you come across in your day to day life. I'd say everyone should watch it.
