If you too are a drama freak, don’t miss the dramas listed below!
Baaghi is one of the drama serials which totally deserves every bit of attention it has received so far.
It is based on a tragic event, one of many that take place due to misguided mindsets of a few.
Qandeel Baloch was a bold and considerably different Pakistani media star, who spurned many controversies. She came from a small town, and was an ordinary girl dealing with the toils of life when she decided she wanted more.
Baaghi takes a look at her life before she came to the attention of the media.
She was unfortunately shot dead by her brother in the name of ‘honor killing’.
O Rangreza is another acclaimed drama serial being run on Hum Television.
The story is based on the life of a girl called Sassi. Sassi’s father is a poet named Khayyam. While severely mistreating his sweet wife, Khayyam claims to be in love with an actress named Sonia, with whom he works.
His daughter begins to wish she could be like the actress her father holds in such high esteem!
Alif, Allah aur Insaan
This particular drama has incredible potential in inspiring Pakistanis to truly begin working hard.
The drama holds special significance as it attempts to deliver a message to those who watch it, rather than providing mind-numbing entertainment.

Muhabbat Tum Se Nafrat Hai
Kaneez Begum and her family are the central characters in Muhabbat Tum se Nafrat Hai.

Zindaan plays on ARY Digital. This serial too tries to deliver a lesson for its viewers that in life, there always will be a struggle between good and evil.

The list is by no means exhaustive.
There are many other drama serials in Pakistan which are truly remarkable in terms of the issues they highlight and the lessons they attempt to deliver. One such drama serial worth mentioning is Adhi Gawahi, which attempts to bring to light a subject particularly sensitive in our society, which is Nikkah and consequently divorce
Another drama that deserves to be mentioned is Mubarak Ho Beti Hui Hai. While society has vastly progressed, the birth of daughters is still looked down upon even in educated households. Worth a watch!
