2020 was the year of the Pakistani entertainment industry. Many dramas saw the light of the day and many entered the hearts of people as well. 2021 is also expected to be the same because we have already so many dramas flooding our TV screens. This is why I have prepared this list of new Pakistani dramas 2021 that have already recently aired or are coming soon.
New Pakistani Dramas Of 2021
Let’s take a look and decide which drama will take your prime time 8 pm spot this year, and which you might have to adjust in the replays.
Qayamat on GEO TV
Qayamat’s first episode aired on 5th January 2021 on GEO TV. It stars Neelam Muneer, Ahsan Khan, Amar Khan, and Haroon Shahid in lead roles. The drama is the production of Abdulla Kidwai, Asad Qureshi and the direction comes from Ali Faizan while the story is written by Sarwat Nazir.
As the drama progresses, we get to see how Neelam Muneer plays the bold, young woman while the elder sister Amar Khan is the exact opposite. Muneer will be married off to Ahsan Khan, and then the series of ups and downs will happen. The how’s, why’s, and what will happen is yet to be seen but the drama does look interesting.
Fitoor on GEO TV
Fitoor’s first episode recently aired on GEO TV on 14th Jan 2021. The drama casts Fayal Qureshi, Hiba Bukhari, Wahaj Ali, and Kiran Haq in the leading roles. It is Abdullah Qidwai and Asad Qureshi production again with the direction from Siraj-ul-Haq.
While the drama’s direction is good, I feel it has the same old story. Leads forcefully getting married to those they do not like and somehow, they might end up falling in love or getting back with their former loves. The first episode was good but very predictable and the drama looks boring in the long run.
Khuda Aur Muhabbat Season 3 on GEO TV
Entering season three with a new cast and story, Khuda Aur Muhabbat will be releasing on GEO TV at a date not announced yet. It has a coveted cast of Iqra Aziz, Junaid Khan, and Feroze Khan. The drama is written by the same novel writer Hashim Nadeem, directed by Syed Wajahat Hussain and produced by Abdullah Kidwai and Asad Qureshi.
It is the third installment of one of the most popular dramas Khuda Aur Muhabbat and is said to have the same story revamped differently. Nothing much has been revealed yet, but we do know it is all about intense love and muhabbat.
Dil Na Umeed To Nahi on TV One
Dil Na Umeed To Nahi’s first episode aired on 14th Jan 2021 on TV One. The drama has a colorful star cast including Yumna Zaidi, Wahaj Ali, Omair Rana, and Samia Mumtaz among many others. The writer is Amna Mufti, the director is Kashif Nasir while the drama is the production of the famous Kashf Foundation.
From the first episode and the other trailers, the drama looks quite unpredictable which is a good thing since most of the Pakistani dramas have turned very predictable recently. The story is of oppression, love, hatred, extremism, and a lot more. I think this drama is very promising and has a lot of thought-provoking stuff to offer to the audience.
Raqeeb Se on HUM TV
Raqeeb Se’s first episode aired on HUM TV on 20th January 2021. It casts Sania Saeed, Iqra Aziz, and Noman Ijaz. The drama is written by Bee Gul, directed by Kashif Nasir, and produced by Momina Duraid.
The first episode went great and is very different from the current HUM drama. We did a complete review of the first episode so you can check that out here.
Pehli Se Muhabbat on ARY Digital
Pehli Si Muhabbat’s first episode is slated to air on 23rd January 2021 on ARY Digital. It casts the much-awaited couple Maya Ali, Sheheryar Munawar, and Shabbir Jan. It is written by Faiza Iftikhar, directed by Anjum Shahzad, and produced by Abdullah Seja.
This drama can easily be termed as one of the most hyped-up and the most-awaited dramas of recent times. It is an intense love story with a lot of ups and downs that we will only see once it hit our TV screens.
Jannat Chor Di Maine on APlus TV
Jannat Chor Di Maine will be aired on APlus TV, and we do not know the release date yet, as only the initial trailer has been launched. It casts Summaiya Baksh, Imran Aslam, and Adnan Jeelani. The drama is written by Abida Ahmed and directed by Shahid Younus.
Nothing much was revealed from the trailer, but it looks apparent that the story is about trials and tribulations in the face of life and love.
