2019 and 2020 were among the two best years in the recent best years of Pakistani entertainment and television industry. With more and more local content being produced, the standard of the productions is increasing slowly but gradually and at a decent pace. This is why, now more than ever, it is your time to watch the best Pakistani dramas or rather binge-watch them.
The best thing about Pakistani dramas is that they do not exceed more than 35 episodes generally, so you can easily binge-watch them when you are free. So, let’s get onto the list of some of the best Pakistani dramas you can watch in 2021 and beyond (trust me on this!):
Which Are The Best Pakistani Dramas?
Here is the list of some of our best Pakistani dramas I think you should watch:
Alif is one of the most spiritual and thought-provoking dramas of recent times. It is a must-watch, not for 2021 but for another decade, so or even beyond. The relevance of this drama and the message it gives is for every Muslim who wants to feel connected to the Creator. Penned by Umera Ahmed, the plot and the dialogues are sure to give you goosebumps.
In short, Alif is the absolute masterpiece of recent years and everything from storytelling to acting, direction, cinematography, and actors is beyond perfect. A treat for the sore eyes.
Yeh Dil Mera
If you follow us and go through the lists of the Pakistani dramas that we discuss, again and again, Yeh Dil Mera makes it to the list every time. The story is unique, the characters are mind-blowing, and the special spotlight on mental health makes it all the more interesting for the viewers.
Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly once again shake the screens as a strong couple and like always Adnan Siddiqui acts like a doting father but a gangster is appealing. A drama worth binge-watching indeed.
Ranjha Ranjha Kardi
If there is one drama Imran Ashraf Awan is known for, it is Ranjha Ranjha Kardi. Although it aired in 2019, watching and rewatching it will never get old. Hence, it makes it to our list of some of the best Pakistani dramas to watch in 2021. The unusual story, strong acting by everyone (especially Imran Ashraf), and the twists & turn won the viewers over.
Ranjha Ranjha Kardi keeps the viewers glued to the screen and even with the good number of episodes, this is that one show you can binge-watch without blinking your eyes.
Mere Paas Tum Ho
Though this name is controversial and there are a lot of people (like me) who feel strongly about it, but you can watch Mere Paas Tum Ho without getting bored. There is a lot in the drama that’s questionable but the acting and how the story unfolds is interesting.
So, if you are someone who hasn’t watched the show yet, you can watch it for the sake of watching while killing your time in a good manner as well.
Another drama that a lot of people do not exactly agree with for its ending, but the start and all the way through the end is worth it. A very complex drama with a storyline and the plot that will make you scratch your head, but the performances are worth it. It is a unique show as well, so you might feel hooked to it because of the newness of everything.
Ishq Zahe Naseeb with its murder, mystery, and thriller is the perfect definition of a drama that doesn’t want you to leave your binge-watching session for anything else.
The most-watched ARY drama of 2019, Do Bol is the one that gave new life to Hira Mani’s on-screen career. With a simple or let’s say cliched story, Do Bol has what it takes for you to enjoy. This can be probably because of how the story unfolds and some strong acting as well. So, leave everything and watch this drama whenever you get a chance in 2021 because it is one of those simple kinds that you wish to watch again and again.
Which Is The Best Drama In 2020?
Though I have made a complete list for you, if you wish to know more about that one drama that was a total hit for more this year, I will answer that as well. It would be Yeh Dil Mera. For someone who doesn’t watch dramas and only gets to know about them because of the usual food-hunting strolls passing by the TV lounge, Yeh Dil Mera makes it to the mark.
From the drama to the storyline, acting to the plot, locations to the cinematography – this one cuts the mark definitely!
Which Pakistani Drama Has The Highest TRP?
This is yet another question a lot of viewers are interested to know. Obviously, we all want to know if our favorite drama made it to the list of the most popular ones or not. If we come to a Pakistani drama with the record-breaking overall TRP, it would be Mere Paas Tum Ho. Definitely not an answer you didn’t know already, because it was publicized enough.
On the other hand, in recent months (among the current dramas being broadcasted through various networks, not talking about the ones that have gone off-screen) Nand from ARY Digital is taking the lead. Another news that is being publicized on social media enough already.
Why Are Best Pakistani Dramas So Good?
A lot of viewers, especially from those across the border who watch the dramas on YouTube, ask this question. The simple answer would be that even though Pakistani dramas are filled with unrealistic masala and damsel-in-distress kind of scenarios, there is still so much that portrays the real-life struggles and examples. The dramas from domestic abuse to child abuse rape to molestations, social work to mental health, and so on are surfacing day by day and making their marks on our screens.
Hence, let’s just agree that even though we all might have our grudges with the local content, it is improving and is still better than the dramas produced in many other places around the world. Also, check out best Pakistani drama list for 2021
