  • no matter these serials are the blockbusters of their times .. but Dastaan ???? it was a master piece … is there any way from where i can het its TRP's ?? plzz tell ??

  • where's Dastaan? and where's Maat? Durre Shahwar?

    Uraan isn't even a blockbuster…never heard of it being so famous…weird list.

  • i am surprized where's daastan, where's mera naseeb and where's mana naa yeh dil,besides i never knew jahez was that famous…was a mediocre drama at best

  • Where's Shehr e Zaat and Mera Naseeb? They had a really high rating too.. Shehr e zaat's rating was higher than Jahez, Meri Laadli and some others in this list! I loved Mera Naseeb! I haven't seen Dastaan, so, I can't say anything about it but I have always heard that it was really good, so, I expected it to be in this list as well!! Are you sure that this is official??

  • I cannot believe that this list does not have Dastaan. That serial was a masterpiece…a CLASSIC! It beats all these dramas hands down – yes, it even beats humsafar :P
    Unbelievable to see it being snubbed from a list of all time block busters.

  • i only see humsafar and meri zaat zara banashan and the ranking you people give i m agree hope the rest of ranking is correct
