Ever since Khaani ended, we cannot seem to recall a drama that had the potential to captivate and enthrall the audience the way it did. While Meri Guriya was emotional, impactful and socially relevant, it did not actually lighten the mood of course or entertain the viewers as such. The lack of quality content available on television is frustrating for those of us who love watching Pakistani dramas. Well, it’s about to change now that we will finally have some interesting dramas lined up for this month, and onward…
Here’s a list of Pakistani dramas we’re actually excited for:
The play is written by Attiya Daud and went on-air last night, 13th October at 8 pm on A-plus. Starring Sanam Saeed and Mohib Mirza as Resham and Zardaab, Deedan deals with forbidden love and its complications in a different cultural setup. Directed by Amin Iqbal, the drama also stars Ajab Gul, Rasheed Naz and Huma Nawab.
Romeo Weds Heer
Earlier this year Feroze Khan and Sana Javed paired up for drama serial Khaani and later for an Eid telefilm titled Dino Ki Dulhaniya. The two won many hearts with their great onscreen chemistry and are now set to return with Romeo Weds Heer which is scheduled to air on October 21 on Geo Entertainment.
Romeo Weds Heer is a romantic comedy, which promises to present a unique love stories. In an earlier conversation with Something Haute, Feroze spoke about the drama and his hopes attached to it. “I’ve seen a couple of episodes, teasers, and OST and I can assure you that it’ll be ‘S I C K’. You’ll be left impressed Insha’Allah,” he said.
While Haiwan might not be light and refreshing, it is a play dealing with a social stigma which requires attention. The first two episodes were on-aired on 10th October, and it will telecast every Wednesday at 8 pm on ARY Digital. Starring Faysal Quraishi and Sanam Chauhdry in the lead, the drama not only addresses the threats our children face, but also highlight the inattentive behaviour of parents who are often careless and blindly trust acquaintances around their kids.
Written by Sara Sadain Syed and directed by Mazhar Moin, the play also features Savera Nadeem and Iffat Omar in pivotal characters.
Aangan is on top of the list of dramas that the viewers have been impatiently waiting for. While it was said to air last month, news came that shooting for the last spell was still on. The period play is based on the novel Aangan by Khadija Mastoor which is set in the 1940s. Directed by Mohammed Ehteshamuddin, the star-studded project features Mawra Hocane, Ahsan Khan, Sajal Aly, Ahad Raza Mir and Sonya Hussyn among others.
