Pakistani dramas really changed the game this year. In this ongoing pandemic, when the world stopped and masses were stranded indoors, some amazing dramas kept the audiences entertained with interesting storylines and beautiful soundtracks.
So many amazing dramas were released this year and there was a lot of debate about which drama truly ruled 2020. However, that’s a story for another day.
Here, we have a list of Pakistani drama OSTs reigned our playlists this year. From romantic melodies to heartbreak anthems, we have got you covered.
Which Pakistani dramas made it to the list? Let’s find out.
1. Mere Pass Tum Ho
There’s no doubt that Mere Pass Tum Ho was a dramatic blockbuster. It broke and set new records for the drama industry and left audience hooked to their television screens. Although, MPTH was a 2019 hit, we are still not over the soulful voice of music maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
The OST was written by Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar himself and with Rahat Sahab and Naveed Naushad on board, it stirred up powerful emotions.
Another hit from 2019, Alif was masterpiece in its own right. The drama had a strong plot and the actors really did justice with the characters they played. But we can’t neglect the beautiful impact its OST left on the audience.
The powerful duo of Momina Mustehsan and Shuja Haider spun their magic, to create this melodious number and a song which had great depth and meaning to it.
It would be unfair to not include Ehd-e-Wafa‘s OST in this list because this song, really gave us all the feels. Again, music maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan made us fall in love with the anthem as it taught us so many great things about life. It’s definitely one of best OST ever produced for a Pakistani drama.
No no, that’s not it! We have another great soundtrack from Ehd-e-Wafa which is absolutely beautiful. The amazing vocals of Asim Azhar, Ali Zafar, Aima Baig and Sahir Ali Bagga is a treat for your ears. Not to mention, the lyrics will make you fall in love with your friends.
4. Kaheen Deep Jalay
If we had to name a song that we can never not stop crooning to, then Kaheen Deep Jalay‘s OST would be our first pick. Written by Qaisera Hayat and Sahir Ali Bagga, the song is a 2019 fan-favorite heartbreak anthem and it still remains a masterpiece in 2020 as well.
5. Ye Dil Mera
Like Ehd-e-Wafa, Ye Dil Mera also had two official soundtracks and both of them are worth listening to. While the one Sajal Aly and Naveed Nashad sang, i.e. Tip Tip, is more of a slow and sorrowful melody…
…Shiraz Uppal gave us a very cute and happy-go-lucky melody. And we are in love with both of them.
6. Thora Sa Haq
While the drama itself didn’t live up to its hype, the OST is definitely one of the best soundtracks of 2020. Shafqat Amanat Ali’s soulful voice made up for the lacking plot of Thora Sa Haq.
Sahir Ali Bagga singlehandedly managed to rule over Pakistani dramas with his amazing vocals. He deserves an award for singing, composing and writing the beautiful soundtrack of Deewangi. If you haven’t listened to this rare piece of gem, then go ahead and click that ‘play’ button here.
8. Pyar Ke Sadqay
Everything about Pyar Ke Sadqay was adorable. Ahmad Jahanzeb and Mahnoor Khan gave us the sweetest OST of 2020 and it seems that we will never get over it. The lyrics perfectly define Abdullah and Mahjabeen’s love for each other in this unique, playful composition.
Sabaat had the most powerful and meaningful title track and Ali Sethi’s soothing voice was a bonus. Not only was the drama a carefully written masterpiece, but the OST also left a positive impact on the audience.
10. Mohabbat Tujhe Alvida
Mohabbat Tujhe Alvida did not please drama fanatics as it was an alleged rip off of Bollywood movie Judaai. However, the OST was phenomenal and we are still unable to wrap our head around the fact that it is an underrated song.
Sahir Ali Bagga and Afshan Fawad lended their voice to Imran Raza’s song and had us cry over the line Ja Mohabbat Tujhe Alvida Kar Diya.
Another great song to add to your playlist is Raaz-e-Ulfat‘s title track. It’s slow, has that beautiful melody and the gorgeous voices of Aima Baig and Shani Arshad makes it your perfect partner for a long drive or a walk.
Sahir Ali Bagga has dominated this list with yet another great track. Fitrat‘s OST is one of the best things that happened this year and the credit goes to none other than Sahir Ali Bagga and Aima Baig. O Zalim rightfully remains at the top and we are glad to share it with you.
Mushk‘s OST gives you best of both worlds. The lyrics are in Urdu and Punjabi and Ali Zafar did complete justice to it by adding all the powerful emotions. The songs is beautiful and it has a tragic yet hopeful feel to it
