One of the major reasons for the drama garnering attention and appreciation from viewers is the fact that the story revolves around issues that are highly relatable to an average Pakistani. It is no secret that majority of the country’s population is living in joint family structures while nuclear families are only a handful. The drama takes viewers on a journey that explores the inticate dynamics of a joint family household, shedding light on the challenges, joys and conflicts that arise. The characters are well-rounded and the story is compelling, people who are watching can highly relate to the daily joys and struggles faced by Baby Baji and her family who is a family of four brother all living under one roof.
Baby Baji and Her Family
The drama follows the story of Baby Baji and her family of four sons, out of which two (Jamal and Naseer) are married with kids and the third son, Wasif just got married. Now that Wasif is married, the story is now showing us how the new daughter-in-law is finding it difficult to adjust into the huge family setup, for those who married into similar joint families will definitely understand the woes of Farhat the newly wedded bride who is having to understand the different relationships and the struggles she is facing while dealing with her sister-in-law Azra. The drama sheds light on the importance of mutual understanding and how communication is key to maintaining healthy relationships within a joint family.
Similar to any average Pakistani family, Baby Baji’s family also has all sorts of people with different temperaments that have learnt to deal with each other and to get along with one-another even when the going gets tough. The importance of family, respect of elders, cultural values and traditions in shaping family dynamics is highlighted articulately with every situation in the drama giving a lesson to the youth of today, from emphasis on Friday prayers to quoting different Hadeeth’s as per the situation to learning how to handle complex relationships such as Azra and the people around her.
It is great to see that the show-makers have chosen to show the mother and father in law in a good light, where we have seen Baby Baji taking her daughter-in-law Asma’s side instead of her own son’s when he was wrong, and although she does not get along with Azra, she asks her son Jamal to keep his wife happy even if that means he needs to give her a new phone or whatever it is that she wants instead of putting her son in a difficult spot where he is forced to choose between his mother and wife.

Biggest Masla in #Babybaji is who used jahez ki istry
Silly issue may lead to divorce While it sounds hilarious ( & it’s quite funny at times )
Ive noticed people especially women take small issues & turn them into nightmares to control & dominate relationships .. https://t.co/hFcdIBSRHL

The daily soaps are not my cuppa tea. But #BabyBaji is almost a perfect collaboration of a good writer and a smart director supported by a stellar cast. It has the style of Ramzan dramas with بھگار of the saas-bahu war. #SaminaAhmed
