Pakistani dramas are entertaining as long as they don’t get overdramatic in no time and lose their appeal. How many times did you start watching a drama, expecting it to be the ‘best drama of your life’, only to end up regretting your decision because it just lost the plot? Probably more than 10 times we reckon.
It’s annoying and unfair, to the point that you start cursing the makers and the actors for ruining it. The struggle is real.
With repetitive storylines, twists, and the character’s dilemma, Pakistani dramas can be too much. And the sad part is, the makers don’t even realize what is wrong here.
Today we are going to highlight dramas airing right now that need to end already.
Yeh Dil Mera
This Sajal Ali and Ahad Raza Mir starrer has overstayed its welcome. Granted, it just ended yesterday, but gosh, did it ruin the promise it held at the beginning.
Yeh Dil Mera was supposed to be a thriller with flashbacks and memories from a tragic character. However, the drama failed in this respect, and we are unable to relate to the characters anymore.
The serial dragged the story at times, with minimal character or plot development. It won’t be wrong to say the drama did not live up to its mark.
Mera Dil Mera Dushman
This ARY Digital drama did not hold our interest from the start. But most of us believed that things could better in subsequent episodes. Now with 33 episodes down the line, it still doesn’t have the public interest.
The story was not unique or new in the first place. We have been seeing older men getting married to women half their age, causing a lot of chaos to his already settled family, for ages now. So this wasn’t particularly a great plot to start with.
But even as they proceeded with it, they should have made sure it does not overlap with the previous stories. Plus, the characters continue to go through the same struggles they are trying to get out of since the first episode. So a lot of repetition is going on here and we can’t waste our time with the recycled plot.
Jo Tu Chahay
Another drama that has been dragging on for far too long is Jo Tu Chahay. 40 episodes in and they are still not over with their ‘rona dhona’?
This drama has all the cliched themes, and keeping that in mind, it should have ended by now. But the makers of the drama are here to torture us with the monotonous, cliff-hanging plot that is just getting ridiculous with each episode.
Thora Sa Haq
It looks like Imran Abbas did not take a good project this time. Thora Sa Haq again deals with the cliched subject of toxic masculinity, but somehow, two women with low esteem end up fighting for this man. Imran Abbas’s character has disappointed on so many occasions that we have literally lost count.
The writers are just dragging this drama with unnecessary family politics and misunderstandings that needed to end months back.
