5 Worst Dramas On Air Right Now

Pakistani drama industry is touching new levels of popularity. It is thriving and producing the kind of dramas that are leaving an impact in the lives of the audience. Pakistani dramas have always been popular because they showcase such stories which are based on reality. Sometimes, the drama makers impart great messages through these dramas, which in a way is their attempt to bring awareness to the people and educate them. Pakistani drama industry has given its viewers some unforgettable dramas and the trend continues till date. Every year, we get to see some amazing dramas which not only end up being mega hits but also stay with the viewers for a long time.

Nowadays with the drama industry producing more dramas than ever before, we see channels competing with each other. It has now come to a point where the quality is being compromised due to quantity. Where some drama makers are putting in continuous efforts to make different dramas and highlight different subjects, there are still such drama makers who are very much stuck in the rut and produce the kind of dramas which revolve around family politics, mistreatment of women, damsel in distress and one-sided atrocities. It is unfortunate that these dramas do end up getting a lot of viewership as well, which then gives the drama makers encouragement to produce the similar kind of content and not break free from the monotony. However, it is a good sign that dramas with different topics are also becoming popular, which sends out a clear message that the viewers have had enough of these typical stories which revolve around miseries of a women and want to see something different. It is definitely hard for the drama makers to maintain the quality, therefore they just come up with tried and tested formulas which grab them the ratings.

Currently few of those dramas can be seen which have bad story line, execution and rely solely on typical miseries and mistreatment of women, these dramas definitely are getting the viewership but we can not overlook the fact that they are probably some of the worst dramas on air right now.

Let’s take a look at the 5 worst dramas on air right now:

Mein Na Janoo

Writer: Noora Makhdoom
Director: Furqaan Khan
Channel: Hum TV
Cast: Sanam Jung, Zahid Ahmed, Affan Waheed, Komal Aziz Khan, Wasim Abbas, Huma Nawab, Sangeeta and others.

When Sanam Jung announced it to be her come back drama, her fans were excited. Another intriguing part of this drama which was promoted heavily was the character of a visually impaired man, played by Zahid Ahmed. Main Na Janoo is a perfect case of expectations gone wrong. It is just a story of a woman Farah, who has been wrongly accused and due to that accusation, Farah and her daughter Saira have always been mistreated. Farah’s husband gets married again and has a daughter with his evil second wife. It is a sickening story of family politics and forced marriages. Saira’s cousin Nihaad loves her to an extent that he is obsessed with her and now when she has gotten married to Nain, Nihaad refuses to mind her own business. If this wasn’t enough, another reason why we feel this is the worst drama is the way Nain has been constantly taunted about being ‘andha’, not once, not twice, repeatedly. The only good thing about this drama is the fact that Nain is shown to be a confident, self-assured and independent man but people around him are mentally impaired, that is why they constantly remind him of the fact that he can not see. Sanam Jung shows clear signs of good-actor-turned-host-turned-bad-actor because her caterwauling and screeching sort of cries and dialogue delivery is nothing less than a pain to endure. Affan Waheed tried to experiment by opting for a negative character but he should stick to the Do Bol kind of characters because he can do justice to them.

Thora Sa Haq

Writer: Adeel Razzaq
Director: Ahmed Bhatti
Channel: ARY Digital
Cast: Imran Abbas, Ayeza Khan, Mashal Khan, Firdous Jamal, Saba Faisal, Nida Mumtaz, Behroz Sabzwari and others.

If you are confused whether you are rewatching Koi Chand Rakh, you’re not alone. Thora Sa Haq has striking similarities with Koi Chand Rakh. Ayeza Khan Imran Abbas pair being one. Imran Abbas getting married to someone because his father made a promise being the second. His unwanted wife is the best woman to have walked the face of the earth being third. Currently, his second wife in Thora Sa Haq has not gone the evil route like the one in Koi Chand Rakh did, but you never know what the future holds because her mother definitely has those germs. It is amusing seeing an actor of Imran Abbas’s stature opting for majboor becharay roles, where he can not fend for himself and ends up being a victim of forced marriages. Ayeza Khan must have signed Thora Sa Haq immediately after Mere Pass Tum Ho, to soften her image in the eyes of her viewers because in every episode, she gets slapped casually, like it is her dose of antibiotics. It is also amusing that Zamin being the culprit has not been held responsible. Zamin tried to make things right just before he was about to say Qabool Hai the second time, but then his second wife to be went ahead with the marriage only to later tell her mother to shift her back to her room! RIP Logic. Oh, just when you thought you’ve cringed enough, there’s this character of Hareem’s cousin who has absolutely no life of his own. He only keeps tabs on Zamin and records the time when Zamin goes to Seher’s room past midnight. This unwanted cousin wants to get married to Seher but has been bhai-zoned a million times, but still fails to get the hint. As if his character wasn’t bad, his makeup is worst. Imran Abbas is guilty of worst makeup yet again in Thora Sa Haq.

Deewar e Shab

Writer: Aliya Bukhari
Director: Iqbal Hussain
Channel: Hum TV
Cast: Bushra Ansari, Sarah Khan, Asma Abbas, Nausheen Shah, Shehzaad Sheikh, Shehroz Sabzwari, Zainab Qayyum, Zara Noor Abbas, Ayesha Toor, Saleem Mairaj, Kinza Hashmi and a lot of others.

This was one such drama which started on a good and different note. It had a lot of tracks and we thought we were signing up for an interesting drama but they didn’t fail to disappoint us immediately. The story of this drama fails to move forward. Sitara Begum’s family is struggling to make ends meet and it continues to be that way. Nagina fails to age and has been a background dancer in the movies all her life. Gaitiara’s character played by Sarah Khan has no purpose whatsoever, other than looking pretty and wearing heavy makeup and clothes. Dildar Begum and his daughters continue to plot against Sitara Begum’s family but no one confronts them – Nagina does but doesn’t make any different. Islam and Izhar ended up being brothers from different mothers, probably after the 20th episode passed. Khayyam’s character has shown zero growth and development, even after he has left his grandmother’s place and is fending for himself. Zoya mourns her breakup but there’s absolutely nothing that the viewers feel for her. This drama is a hot mess. As if it wasn’t enough, it is so obvious that they have now started introducing more and more characters to drag it further – as if people were crazy about this drama and didn’t want it to end. 30 episodes of Deewar e Shab have gone on air and we are still wondering what the purpose of this baseless drama is?

Dar Khuda Se

Writer: Sarwat Nazeer
Director: Anjum Shehzaad
Channel: Geo Entertainment
Cast: Imran Abbas, Sana Javed, Kiran Haq, Qavi Khan, Sajida Syed, Ali Ansari and others.

It is unfortunate that a drama which has been written by Sarwat Nazeer ends up in this list due to poor execution and slower-than-a-turtle pace. The story of Dar Khuda Se is moving around in circles and fails to move forward. It highlighted the issue of workplace harassment but in the end, the damsel in distress ended up bearing all the laan taans and tanas because no one chose to believe her version of the story. She got blackmailed with the photoshopped images and the harasser boss ended up becoming her elder sister’s husband. Imran Abbas has surely acted well in Dar Khuda Se but that’s all there’s to it. Dar Khuda Se has also touched the 30 episode mark proudly but the story doesn’t seem to have any purpose. The set of parents shown in this drama are also cringe worthy who fail to trust their daughters and just treat them as a liability, that too when their two kamaoo-poot sons have more or less disowned them!

Kahin Deep Jalay

Writer: Qaisera Hayat
Director: Saima Waseem
Channel: Geo Entertainment
Cast: Imran Ashraf, Neelam Munir, Nazish Jahangir, Ali Abbas, Saba Faisal, Saba Hameed and others.

Heavily inspired by Balaa, Kahin Deep Jalay is all about evil bhabhi who has already exposed her reality on her mother and sister in law but they being too simple minded fail to call a spade a spade. Shameela is full of inferiority complexes and is someone who only sees the negatives in simplest of situations, therefore she twists everything according to her perspective and no one bats an eyelid. Shameela’s mother in law, who also happens to be her khala has more or less understood the kind of game Shameela is playing but she chooses to stay silent, for reasons best known to her. She also saw Shameela igniting a fight between her two younger sons but chose not to clarify the situation. The writer has very much tried to hold Shameela responsible for everything but all those who choose to stay silent to her atrocities are equally in fact more responsible for everything that is happening. Imran Ashraf and Neelam Munir’s track started off on an unrealistically sweet note that it gave us a toothache but we’re still trying to cope. However, Imran Ashraf’s sweet character has turned sour because now the social status difference between him and his wife is making his restless – which was something Zeeshan was totally aware of before he decided to get married to Rida and was having sleepless nights wondering if she will say yes to his proposal. The minminmin Zeeshan does is cringe++, we’re hoping just as much as the drama picks up the pace, he adjusts his playback speed to 1.5 (youtube settings) too.

5 Worst Dramas On Air Right Now

This concludes the list of 5 worst dramas that are on air right now. Which one of these are you watching? Feel free to share your thoughts about these dramas in the comment section below.


My name is Shozib Ali. I have done Bachelors in Media Sciences. Currently Working as an administrator and content writer for reviewit.

  • I’m enjoying “Thora sa haq”, it’s just lovely to watch. Kahin d jaley could have been an excellent drama but it’s too “Star plus” …such great actors and such beauty. I wish they had focused on the story. It had so much potential.

  • Still the admin of this website which cannot review more than 4 dramas is watching all of them and had the time to write about them in great lengths. Koi dekhay ya na dekhay admin tu dekhay ga. Bhai admin nahin pasand tu na dekhein. It is your own personal opinion no one cares about. How crazy must the admin be watch the plays he hates so much every week. Aisa farigh waqt chahye.

    • I cudnt agree more hassan raza. V well put. Mtlb if they r the worst dramas to y r u watching each n every episode? Like agr admin ko aik drama ni pasand to wo drama worst ho gya chahie 80% viewers ko pasand ho. Tats smthng new.

  • Thora SA haq is also cheesy but a bit better than others especially deewar e Shah but I think you don’t know deewar e shab is based on a novel of digest that’s why it is being lengthy and it’s story is no doubt intehai fazul

  • At least deewar-e-shab aur kahin deep jalay to na pasand karnay waalay nahi hyn. Dono achay dramay hyn.kahin deep jalay jaisi byshumaar bhaabiyaan apni aankhon sy daikhi hyn.aap logon ko pata nahi phir kaisay dramay pasand aatay hyn samajh sy Bahir hai.

  • I would have said Agree to this article had it not included Deewar e Shab. Behen are you for real? If you look for story, it is stronger than every drama currently on air. It’s execution might not be very up to mark but storyline is top-notch. A complex story with so many characters that actually make you feel like you are reading a novel. And you have failed to get the reason behind Nani Sitara and Co’s suffering. Living in Bazar e husn has put a stamp on them and this has made their life miserable. Shall it even end? Wait for the drama to end
    And you talk about it being dragged. Behen this novel was written almost a decade ago and has been considered as one of the most successful novels of digest fiction. Dramay mein tou kafi characters cut kiye gye Hain wrna iss say b lmba hona tha. Every character is contributing in taking the story to an ending. And to talk about Nageena’s age, my dear just take a look at her make up and dresses and then you will realize the change in her personality after Sandal’s film. In novel, Nageena was fond of turquoise eye shadow and pretentious make up which she stops doing after Sandal bags a film.
    And Nani Sitara is undoubtedly among my most favorite fictional characters till date. No doubt Bushra did not justice to this character but it has been written very beautifully, without heavy dialogues but with very decent words. For novel readers like me, DS is a perfect drama that offers a variety of characters and showcases their journies.
    I might sound harsh but believe me only Fatima baji and Zahra baji deserve to write such articles on reviewit. I’ll end my comment with this: حکومت کو چاہیے کہ انٹرنیٹ پیکج مہنگے کر دے ورنہ ایسے پانی میں مدھانی ڈال کر بننے والے تجزیہ کار بڑھتے چلے جائیں گے

    • Completely agree… I started reading novels from past some years… If u don’t mind can u plz suggest me some novels.. And yes what is the name of the novel.. Of this drama diware shab.

      • Thanks for agreeing. And why not
        Deewar e Shab is the name of the novel. It was published for 65 whole months in Shuaa Digest.
        And you must have read popular writers like Nemrah or Umera. I will suggest you some non famous novels
        یہ دل یہ سودائی از سعدیہ عزیز
        دل من مسافر من از عنیزہ سید (عنیزہ کا کوئی بھی پڑھ لیں۔ پسند آئے گا آپ کو)
        میرے چارہ گر از رخسانہ نگار
        زندگی اک روشنی از رخسانہ نگار
        دست مسیحا از نگہت سیما
        عہد الست از تنزیلہ ریاض
        سیاہ حاشیہ اور دیمک زدہ محبت از صائمہ اکرم
        اس کے علاوہ آپ سائرہ رضا کا کوئی بھی پڑھ لیں۔ مایوسی نہیں ہو گی۔ خالی آسمان، سرسوں کا پھول، پھر بھی دل دھڑکتا ہے، حسن المآب اور، محبت داغ کی صورت، یقین کامل ہی بندگی ہے، جب ہم ملے، یہ سب سائرہ کے ہیں۔ آپ کو پسند آئیں گے

        • Thank u so much shorbaan….I’ll try to read amap..& yes whatever I have read so far are from nimra and umera ahmed only..like peere kamil , alif, z.g.hai, mohabate kamil, matae jaan of F.I
          And yes “Namal” the latest one I read..wht r ur thoughts about it..I personally liked it alot..for someone like me who’s a lot into a eng and other language literature it’s masterpiece and gave tough competition .
          And are you on goodreads?…just asking out of curiosity!

          • True. Namal is a masterpiece no doubt. I miss those days when I used to wait for it’s new episodes in the digest. Oh good old days !!

          • Yes it was fun
            I read Haalim too while it was being published in digest. Have you read it? Do give it a read
            Infact most of the episodic novels in Idara e khawateen digests (Khawateen, Shuaa, Kiran) are amazing. I follow most of them regularly. Aur wait krny ka b apna he maza hai 😄

          • No need to say thanks. A book lover feels happy when he finds another book lover 😄 And I knew it, Umera and Nimra happen to be the first choice of new readers. I have read Namal and I love it. Writing a long book about 1500 pages long isnt an easy job and Nemrah has nailed it. She is indeed an amazing writer. I like her stories better than Umera’s since Umera’s stories revolve more or less around the same loop so they kinda bore me. In fact Alif itself looked more like a blend of Man o Salwa, Shehr e zaat and Peer e Kamil. Have you read Haalim? Do read it if you haven’t. It is amazing

            And so glad to hear that you downloaded YDYS. Believe me it is going to leave you teary eyed. Do you live out of Pakistan? Sadia Aziz in my opinion is a very underrated writer. You are going to love her writings.
            And I think I am on Goodreads. Will have to check it. Kindly tell me your username. I’ll just add you there

          • Yes even I like nimra ahmed more than umera ..true about alif, I was expecting more in the story.and yes I’m not from Pakistan..I learned urdu in very early age but couldn’t find any books to read..
            Definitely reading ydys…not read haalim yet..but will definitely do..going to read all of the nimra’s work.
            I searched u there(gd reads)..but may be u r there with some other name..acha are you in Pakistani readers group or urdu lover group..I’m there in both of them..so searched u there only..

          • It’s such a good feeling that people are still reading urdu inspite of all English odds
            Kudos to all of you!!

          • You penned my thoughts. Nemrahhh is amazing. She is bringing diversity in her novels. Every new novel of hers touches a new genre and this is sth umera has failed to. All these years, she has been writing love stories and if change intended, family politics with some religious touch.
            How are you finding YDYS? I’d read it some 5 years ago. Don’t remember the story but it got me very much emotional at instances. Lol
            No I’m not in any group. I had made an account long ago but never used it. My username is Moiz. Tried finding you but couldn’t

          • Don’t worry …I gave friend request…it’ll continue only after you’ll give a confirmation.

          • Are you the one currently reading Raja Gosh? I sent you a friend’s request. Joined both of the groups as you mentioned

          • No I’m not reading that…wait…I added u .. u accepted the request
            U came in my friend list…I don’t know to whom you sent the request…

        • I downloaded the pdf of yeh dil yeh sodai…as here I can’t get any hard copy…will let u know how it is..Thanks again..

      • Glad to see we are on the same page Tuaha. No doubt Deewar e Shab is currently one of the finest dramas on air. Different storyline, so many characters – a combination we rarely see

  • Deewar e Shab? I’m liking this particular better than many of other currently on air. It’s story is better than even Alif or MPTH

  • dewaar e shab n hum tv k dramy aj kl bht bore han baki geo n art digital k to sb he achy han sary bewafa ruswaii thora sa haq ghalti dar khuda se dewangi kahin deep jaly mohabat na kryo Alif ye sb achy dramy han sb ek dusry se bilkul different han . ramz e ishq nae acha bs lolzz

    • Ap ehd-e-wafa nahi dekhti Kya wo b hum tv sa hi aata ha….and no doubt super excellent ha jo hum tv k sare drama serial pr bhari ha

  • Ohhhh admin bro khin deep jaly is favorite or bro if you have any problems regarding dramas like thora sa haq khin deep jaly then apny tak rakho or i do agree thora sa haq is toooo boring

  • Stop scolding bechara admin.
    because in comment section, every 1 has diff opinoion . Not necessary k sab k opinion mily.

    i dnt like Dassi, and stopped watchin Dewar e Shab, Thora sa haq.

    but, kahy Deep jalay is my FAV. love Zeeshan n Neelum as a sweet couple.
    shamela jasy bhabhi Allah ksi kona dey Ameen

  • I don’t like drama serial alif. I watched one episode n failed to understand.. it was so dull n boring n it’s pace was so slow..

  • Thora Sa Haq in my opinion is a million times better than Koi Chand Rakh. I mean it’s much better than any other dramas on this list and I also want to know your opinions on Daasi.

  • What do you think about Daasi? Also, Thora Sa Haq shouldn’t have been second on the list. I mean all the other dramas here are much worse than it. Also, Jo Tu Chahay has became insufferable too.

  • Mere Paas Tum Ho is undoubtedly the worst on air drama right now with dollops of misogyny and stupidity. Another worst drama is Ishq Zahe Naseeb which serves no purpose.
    Rest all of the dramas in the list are boring but not stupid.
    Kahi Deep Jale is a really good drama which was written as a novel and was scripted nearly 5 yrs ago. Obvously Shameela’s track is explored more but the insecurities of married couples and also discusses the issues of male fertility, is reproduction the only purpose of marriage.
    Rest discussed, Thora Sa Haq is a poor ripoff of even worst drama Ramz e Ishq.
    Darr Khuda Se has long lost its purpose and doesnt seem to end for another 10 episodes.

    Real worst 5 OR MORE dramas are
    Mere Paas Tum HO
    Yeh Dil Mera
    Main Naa Janoo
    Sharukh Ki Saaliyan
    Ramz e Ishq

  • I did watch Kahin Deep Jalaycso can’t comment on that, but others are no doubt there to test viewers’ patience.

  • I think this list is only about the worst famous dramas. I though agree with you, am still watching TSH and DKS .

  • Diwar e Shab is the worrrrrrrrrst drama in the history. I wish I could hang the whole team. Aur Main na Jano wali team ko to torture cell main dalna chahey.
