“Don’t mess with the lady in black”
Indeed. In the first animated series ever to be produced in Pakistan, the Burka Avenger is Pakistan’s latest superhero, and she doesn’t play. Armed with books and pens, Jiya is a teacher at a girls’ school by day, but when she dons her burka to conceal her identity her books become weapons used in a special martial arts style Takht Kabbadi that she learned from her father, and she becomes Burka Avenger, a fierce defender of girls’ education.
The musical hook to the trailer shouts out “don’t mess with the lady in black”, and ya know what, her weapons might be pens and books, but it looks like she can do some serious damage with ’em.
