This day marks the end of a decade for the Pakistani drama industry. Tomorrow, with a new date, a new decade will begin and Pakistani drama fans can only keep their expectations high, hoping to see some more iconic and substantial dramas in the years to come. This entire decade was nothing short of a treat for Pakistani drama viewers and fans because this is when the drama industry saw a shift in the paradigm. After the influx of content from across the border, the Pakistani drama industry suffered and had to work really hard to bring back the viewership and retain it. This is when everyone joined hands and brought back the glory to the Pakistani dramas that they deserved and since then, the industry has only unlocked one level of success after another.
This decade was when the popularity of Pakistani dramas soared high and with the help of social media, it skyrocketed even more. Viewers and fans got a portal to discuss what they liked in the dramas and with that, more and more people ended up joining the discussions. This entire decade, Pakistani drama fans have seen some brilliant dramas and because those dramas were widely spoken about, there were also some of the dialogues that became unforgettable. These dialogues have stayed with the fans and have probably become a way of recalling the specific dramas.
Here is the list dedicated to the memorable dialogues of the decade from Pakistani dramas:
There is no denying the fact drama serial Humsafar is one of the blockbusters that the Pakistani drama industry produced this decade. After a long time, there was one such drama that blew everyone’s minds and it was probably the most-watched show of the year with its worldwide popularity. Humsafar became a phenomenon and just as much as people loved the pairing of Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan, as much as people loved the story, the Pakistani audience didn’t miss the chance of using one of the dialogues for comedy. The iconic ‘mummy ye app kya keh rahi hain’ became one of the most memorable dialogues of this drama and it was used in memes. Although it was said in a scene where Khirad was being accused and her world was falling apart, the repeated usage of this dialogue gave the viewers enough reasons to find the humor in it.
Durr-e-Shehwar will always be remembered as one of those few dramas which tackled the issues of an early, arranged married in the aptest manner. Durr-e-Shehwar attempted to highlight the problems faced by a young woman early on in her marriage in an attempt to highlight the importance of helping a girl adjust to her new house and not having too many expectations from her. Umera Ahmed always writes the most soul-stirring dialogues therefore it was no surprise that most of these dialogues truly resonated with everyone who watched the drama. Among other things, Durr-e-Shehwar’s conversations and exchange of letters with her aba (father) became a fan favorite. In a letter, she tells her father that she feels like she is zero because she was made to feel that way in her new house. Her father wanted her to settle down in her new house therefore even though his heart ached for her, he gave her a piece of advice that was penned down so beautifully. Her father redefined zero by saying, ‘Sifar ki zarurat har addad ko hoti hai. Kuchh bann ne ke liye sifar jis addad ke saath lage uski kadr aur keemat kai guna badha deta hai’. Syed Muhammad Ahmed and Sanam Baloch’s impressive performances made their interactions a treat to watch.
