Pakistani dramas makers have always taken pride in showcasing the realities of life through their work. This is the reason why Pakistani dramas have sat well with the viewers because one way or the other, they end up seeing their story being reflected which makes the drama as well as the characters relatable to them. Pakistani drama industry is at this stage where the makers also acknowledge the fact that a huge responsibility lies on their shoulders because they do realize that television is one of the most powerful mediums of educating the masses as well as creating awareness. In this regard, where some of the drama writers do not really pay much heed to the fact that they should be a bit more responsible with their writing, there are a lot more drama writers who take their job very seriously and understand that the kind of work they do will eventually make an impact in the lives of those who are watching their dramas. This is the reason, at this stage, Pakistani drama viewers have become more vocal about the kind of content they expect to see and the kind of content they are not a fan of because the audience is also getting more aware of how important it is for the drama makers to use the medium of TV cautiously.
Pakistani dramas have always been popular because of the great messages and lessons they impart by showing different stories. However, in some dramas, the miseries of characters are prolonged in order to generate ratings, and in the end, the consequences are shown quickly which ends up defeating the entire purpose of the drama. In other instances, the dramas which continue to give out a lot of great messages along the way always earn a special place in the hearts of the viewers because this is the kind of story-telling that establishes the connection between the viewers and the characters of the drama.
At this point, there are a lot of dramas that are on-air right now. In this season, Pakistani drama viewers have come across some brilliantly written dramas as well as they have come across some controversial themes too. Pakistani drama writers always make the viewers believe that they are showing what happens in reality and the ugly face of the society but in all honesty, it all boils down to how the actual drama has been conceptualized because the clarity in the execution sets the tone for the viewers to grasp whatever is being shown.
Let’s take a look at the messages that have been given in the Pakistani dramas this season:
Drama serial Sabaat has perfectly highlighted the issues faced by the younger generation of today, especially those who step into the practical life and struggle hard to find their paths. The writer of Sabaat has skillfully shed a light on what different individuals go through and all the challenges they are faced with one after another, which either makes or breaks them. The writer has touched upon different aspects, such as mental health, financial stability, financial independence, self-assurance, and all these dimensions that are the defining factors of one’s journey.
Drama serial Sabaat did receive some criticism from the viewers when they found the flaws in the overall execution of the drama but as the story has progressed, the substance that the story of Sabaat has compelled the viewers to overlook the errors. In Sabaat, the character of Anaya is inspirational and although she has been through a lot, the writer has shown how important it is for an individual to believe in oneself. Another beautiful message that this drama has given is the importance of a healthy relationship that parents should have with their children. The writer has perfectly shown the contrast where a father has fed on the negativity in his children by literally spoiling them and then, there was Anaya’s father who has nurtured her with love and has instilled confidence in her.
