The Life of Pakistani Dramas

Pakistani drama started its journey with PTV in 1964. With very little budget and other facilities the industry flourished on its talent .Pakistani drama set its own class and it gave a new introduction to Pakistan and its society.

PTV gave birth to some classics such as Waris, Afshan, Tanhaiyan Andhera Ujala and Chaon. It also introduced our great writer such as Anwar Maqsood, Haseena moin, bano qudsiya and there is a never ending list. It was the golden era of Pakistani dramas

“It has been said when ever new episode of Waris was casted; roads of whole Pakistan were become free of traffic”.

PTV reigned alone in Pakistan but late 90’s came with competition from the neighboring country. The historical Star Plus was introduced in our households giving birth to the “Saas bahu sagas”. For ten years our mothers, sisters and wives cried with Tulsi, Parvati and wore kashishs jewelry n clothes.

It was HUM TV who not just brought Pakistani drama viewers back but it made our drama popular in the whole world. Hum tv is only the channel who actually attracted me too because they introduced the new way of thinking. Most of their dramas revolved around the vicious circle of poverty, a miserable daughter-in-law suffering at the hands of her evil in-laws, societal customs, dowry issues, giving birth to a male child or the perfect “rishta”(proposal). Indeed these are issues which need to be addressed in dramas or movies .Hum TV tackled the norms in our society but with style and glamour.

One such example is “Humsafar” drama. It actually brought me back to the world of dramas. A very simple story dealt with style, suitable cast and attractive presentation was shown. The love between Ashr and khirad made us forget all Tulsis and Parvatis.

Once what Indian channels did to our industry now our dramas are doing to them i.e stealing our viewership. ‘Zingdagi” channel has seeped in all our blockbusters dramas in india. Humsafar is one such drama which has gained immense popularity there too.

Anupam Kher an Indian actor openly said:

“I am impressed by the perfection of diction and the smoothness with which they deliver Urdu dialogues in Pakistani dramas.”

“We have been teaching Pakistani dramas in our academies for quite some time and even the Indian audience admires Pakistani dramas like the Pakistani audience admires Bollywood films.”

Hum tv are doing great job as far as concerned about drama and our drama is now reflecting true picture of our society and its problems. Some channels are still playing dramas of other countries such as India and Turkey but these dramas are just good to fantasize and such dramas do not reflect our social issues. Therefore there is no need to play drama of other countries as our drama is too good to entertain a viewer and enough to give some good lesson to our society.

My Inner World

As we all know it’s very difficult to express one’s self in front of people. The other person perceives you differently but coming towards myself I believe I am a simple and straight forward person. What I think about myself is that I am very fond of exploring the world. Socializing can be called my forte and my hobby as well. I welcome every type of person. Meeting people from different walks of life gives you a good insight into understanding life. Socializing is not all about going to cafes with friends or random hangout I randomly go to different educational and political program to socialize people with different class and professions. I actively participated in social awareness campaigns and work for needy people.

I love to converse with people of different cultures and beliefs and hear how they conduct their life. I can easily mingle with every kind of person and have the ability to manipulate them and get desired result with help of my experience. I came across different types of people with different mindset so it’s easy for me to have a good long conversation. Information about their thinking as you know it’s very difficult to get someone personnel thinking. I go to different places in Pakistan and in other countries too to get their lifestyle and experiences. Meeting new people is such pleasure for me and I would love to travel the world now. This characteristic of socializing has developed my interest in going to travel the world. I have met so many people that I feel like writing about them. But I believe I need to explore the world more and gain more knowledge to write about them. The more I meet people the more I want to explore more.
