Pakistani dramas are a great source of entertainment! Most of them not only represent a true picture of our society but also perform the job of highlighting the social evils and suggesting few solutions for them. Right now many issue based plays are on air on different television channels, not sure which one to watch and which one to miss? Here are few suggestions for you:
Gohar-e-Nayab is a product of 7th Sky Entertainment which is written by a well known digest writer Samra Bukhari and directed by our very own Sakina Samo. Gohar-e-Nayab is the story of a young girl who lost her mother in her childhood and got abandoned by her father after his second marriage. She is compelled to live with her uncle and his family where she is mistreated. Story of this play doesn’t have anything particularly new and novel in it but the realistic portrayal of our society and praiseworthy performance of Sajal Ali makes it one of the best and interesting on air plays right now. Will coming days bring any happiness and relief for Gohar-e-Nayab? This suspense will be revealed in coming days, you can watch this drama on A Plus every Friday at 20:00 PST.
Stressed out or tired from your daily routine and need some fun family entertainment? Tune into A Plus on Thursday and give Aunn Zara a go. Without any doubt this is the best comedy play on air right now. Aunn Zara is the story of a young married couple who is trying to understand each other while living and adjusting in a joint family system where each and every character is extra ordinarily hilarious. Written by Faiza Iftikhar and directed by Haisam Hussain, Aunn Zara is a complete package for anyone who is looking for some entertaining family comedy.
After his block buster serial Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Fawad Khan is back on TV with his new play Numm. Numm appears to be a very unconventional social issue based play that revolves around the feudal culture and norms. The first episode of the play was somewhat slow, shocking but interesting simultaneously where viewers were introduced to Sania Saeed, who is playing the wife of Wali (Fawad Khan). Even though Wali is married, his father (Usman Peerzada) got him engaged to another girl Neelam, who is younger than Sania Saeed. Upcoming episodes will reveal what were the intentions behind Wali’s first marriage. You can watch Numm every Saturday at 20:00 PST on Geo TV.
MUJHE KHUDA PE YAQEEN HAI
We have all seen and appreciated Ayesha Khan in main leads of various dramas such as Vasl and Ijazat but probably this is the first time when she is playing a negative role. Mujhe Khuda Pe Yaqeen Hai is the story of Arham, who has been accused of some unforgivable act, and lost interest in life. The story is vague and unclear at this point but hopefully will be unveiled gradually in next few episodes. Despite of the fact that Arham’s mystery is still in dark, Mujhe Khuda Pe Yaqeen hai is an interesting play with a great cast that has all the qualities to glue the audience to their TV screens.
Kankar is a brilliant play written by Umera Ahmad that highlights a bleak aspect of our society where the bond of marriage is hardly established on the basis of equality. Husband is considered superior than his wife from day one just because he is the male member of the family who earns for his wife. Insulting woman, curbing her individuality and domestic violence are often considered trivial matters. The main leads are played by Sanam Baloch and Fahad Mustafa, both of them had done justice to their roles. The pace of the drama was very slow since beginning that made it little boring for the audience but now it is only getting better with every new episode. Kankar is broadcasted on every Friday from Hum TV at 20:00 PST.
