When asked about the negative reaction the show got, Sana Amanat replied: “I think it comes from a place of anger and a sense that their identities are being threatened. If they can’t connect with it, then that’s OK. I just wish they wouldn’t try to put it down,”


She continued: “It’s amazing to see how they’re internalizing that imagery. I just hope it gives them a sense of competency that, frankly, I didn’t have growing up, and a sense of connectedness inside of their culture and who they are because I think that’s incredibly important,”

One interesting aspect of the show was its exploration of The violent partition of India in 1947. Amanat explained: “One of my favorite things, when I came onto the show, was that this is the anchor point of the series, this idea of what the Partition has done to multiple families, but also what it’s done to women,” she said. “And how often, women are forgotten in stories of trauma, but also in the big story and big historical events. It’s the women who bear the brunt of the pain but whose stories are not told.”

Despite all the negativity, Ms. Marvel turned out to be a success. It had a fascinating storyline and solid performances. Fans all around the world loved it and can’t wait for season 2! What do you think of the show? let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
