Best Pakistani Dramas of 2022

Sang e Mah 

We can never deny Atif Aslam’s existence as a plus for this drama series, but there is a lot more to the plot of Sang e Mah than just star celebrities. The drama focuses on tribal families and their sacrifices in modern-day Pakistan in the name of traditions. The series is a sequel to Sang e Mar Mar, which ended in 2017 and picked up after that plot. Both shows played a vital role in highlighting the ugly parts of our society that we often turn our back on.

The themes include honour killings, domestic violence, bride bribes and patriarchy in feudal societies, and they tried to counter the issue via its script and strong plotline.

Paristan

This show has a lighthearted feel to it despite having painful character backstories. Paristan got most recognized due to Merub and Junaid Khan Niazi’s appearance as a couple. Everyone adores the two stars together, and let’s not kid ourselves – they look cute. The story has a lot of tropes, but since it’s a sitcom, it doesn’t leave us feeling wrong about anything too much.

Each episode promises laughs and giggles, and we are here for it!

Dil Awais

The story is a bit like the ones we grew up watching on Star Plus and revolves around the sufferings of the main character – Dil Awais. Unloved by her father due to her mother’s past, she is left at the mercy of her stepmother and sister, who treat her very poorly throughout. As the story progresses, Dilawaiz comes across Sikander and falls in love with him. However, Sikander likes her step-sister and chooses to marry her.

Stepsister, Fariya, runs away with her boyfriend, leaving Dilawaiz to soothe the pride of both families by marrying a man who never wanted her. The story is full of jaw-dropping moments and makes one rethink our society and the faces it hides.

Mushkil Drama

Mushkil Drama story unveils with every passing episode. It started with university life and Sameen and Faraz getting into trouble. The story has taken a quick turn. Sameen’s fiance left her. The fathers of both of them decided to get married.

Mushkil Drama

So far in this drama, Faraz and Sameen are married out of their consent. Faraz’s expressions throughout the episodes show his unwillingness to accept Sameen.

How can we forget our villain, Zainab Shabbir, as the harem finds no halt? Being a selfish friend, she tries to let Sameen down as her revenge for her. She is spreading bad words about her and cursing her for the mistake she made on her own. This was all about the Mushkil drama review. Let’s see what happens next.

Mushkil drama cast includes Saboor Aly, Khushhal Khan, and Zainab Shabbir, who are playing their roles dedicatedly. As far as the story is concerned, the plot has taken a fast pace that depends on no flashbacks; the audience is not in any suspense about what is to come. So, stay tuned for the Mushkil Drama Review so far.

Mere Humsafar

Mere Humsafar (transl. My Companion or Life Partner) is a Romantic Pakistani drama television series produced by Humayun Saeed and Shehzad Naseeb under the banner Six Sigma Plus. Directed by Qasim Ali Mureed and written by Saira Raza, it aired from 30 December 2021 to 29 September 2022 on ARY Digital.

​Mann Mayal

The plot of Mann Mayal is stretchy as Manahil is in love with Salah-ul-Din who also shares her feelings. However, when he falls for another woman, a heartbroken Manahil agrees to get engaged to Meekail.

Sadqay Tumhare

The plot of Sadqay Tumharey is simple, Shanno, an innocent and simple girl, is engaged to Khalil, but has not seen him in 10 years. Later, the two meet and fall in love but a mistake from the past disturbs their happy life.

1. Zindagi Gulzar Hai

Our television viewers seem to be obsessed with Cinderella stories. Tales with a heroine who is a lot like the famous Disney princess and a hero who looks and acts like Prince Charming are the latest fads. Combine these with a few elements like stepmother and sisters, and you’ve got a drama deemed a hit before it starts airing.
I am not criticising these light love stories; they certainly make for some easy entertainment. However, watching a Cinderella story filled with glitches that the directors and the public ignore makes me sceptical. One such fairy tale in dire need of scrutiny is ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’. Cinderella must come out of her childhood grievances, and Prince Charming needs to wipe that love-sick look off his handsome face and snap back to reality!
So, the story starts with Kashaf, the leading character, as a chronic pessimist. Her negativity is so infectious even the viewers have begun questioning the intentions of the people around them. She is bitter because their father abandoned her family and married another woman with the hopes that she would bear him a son. Fair enough; any daughter left alone without a father’s protecting hand would develop a negative attitude towards life. But Kashaf’s pessimism stands out from the rest of the family combined. Even her mother’s kindness and optimism cannot pull out the negativity from Kashaf.
