Most Illogical Situations In Top Pakistani Dramas

Many popular dramas on air right now have some scenarios which are impossible to relate to. Even though most of these dramas provide quality entertainment but there is something or the other which irks the viewers. These illogical scenarios make the viewers wonder why the writer who otherwise wrote a good script, added something so illogical. Such situations and scenarios make it difficult for viewers to relate to them.

There is a lot more pressure today on the drama writers than before. They are expected to write dramas with more than 20 episodes and they have to write often! This definitely hampers their creativity and at times their reasoning.

Here are some of the most illogical situations from the top recent Pakistani dramas.

Ruswai

Ruswai is a popular drama serial which deals with the serious issue of rape, well at least that is how it started! Ruswai started off really well and the main protagonist Sameera was introduced as a strong and intelligent young woman. As the story progressed, the writer completely lost track and the entire story focused mainly on Sameera blaming her doting father for her kidnapping and rape. The way Sameera kept on blaming her father and how she treated him after the tragedy shifted the focus from everything else and made Sameera’s character annoying. This was the most illogical and annoying part of the drama for weeks.

Watching her take out her anger on the father who always loved her made absolutely no sense. Now that her father has died, she is left with nothing but remorse. And as if this was not enough, somehow Sameera’s intelligent brother too completely missed how Sameera’s attitude hurt their father. The heroine who had so much going for her was conveniently turned into a monster who indirectly is responsible for her father’s death! She continues to be so ‘understanding’ when it comes to her bhabhi Warda but never paused to understand her father. The writer definitely did not let sense prevail and perhaps took this route to make the viewers feel for Sameera’s father. Weren’t the viewers supposed to feel for the victim and not her father?

Yeh Dil Mera

Yeh Dil Mera is a thriller/mystery drama which is keeping the viewers engaged and entertained. Yeh Dil Mera is a story of revenge and it revolves around the main protagonists Amaan and Ana. The most illogical situations of this drama also center around these two characters. Even though there have been a lot of editing glitches in the play but the glaring flaws are more obvious than anything else. The most unconvincing scenario was Amaan surviving the killings without the knowledge of Mir Farooq. The writer gave an explanation for this and informed her fans that the director was responsible for this glitch. There is more, Mir Farooq’s transition from an over-protective father to one who was more than willing to let go of his daughter made little sense.

A criminal minded person like Mir Farooq who does not even trust his own wife and lives by the rule that no one should be trusted, did not even do a background check on the man with whom his daughter who was already mentally disturbed was going to spend the rest of her life! Ana’s relationship with her father and everyone in her house after her marriage has been the most illogical part of the drama. People move on after they lose someone but in this drama, the father and daughter have literally moved on after Ana got married. Why couldn’t the writer show a normal, functioning father-daughter relationship between these two after Ana’s marriage? Bua’s disappearance too has been a joke. Everyone needs Amaan to tell them there is something fishy going on!

Jhooti

Jhooti is another popular play on air right now which has been illogical right from the first episode. The writer has relied wholly on the black and white characters. Nasir is not just all white but his character has to be the most illogical one we have ever seen in Pakistani dramas. The way Nirma asks for his shop to be transferred in her name and everyone is more than okay with it was the first indication that this drama was going to show many illogical scenarios.

After that one after the other, the viewers have been watching Nirma playing havoc after her marriage and putting forward the most unreasonable demands yet her husband takes being joru ka ghulam to a whole new level. Perhaps the writer took inspiration from drama serial Dillagi but surely Nirma is not Anmol and Nasir is nowhere near Mohid! The way no one in Nasir’s family saw through the most transparent vamp/heroine ever, has been the most illogical element of the drama throughout.

Ishqiya

Ishqiya recently started and it is being watched by many viewers. Although for the most part drama serial Ishqiya has been written well but this drama too has one main illogical situation so far which is hard to digest. Romaissa has been shown as a happy go lucky young woman but she is also wise and sensitive. Yet for the past few weeks her sister Hamnah has been going through hell and she has not been trying to hide it, yet Romaissa has not once even asked her why she is so depressed. It is also quite obvious that Hamnah was never interested in getting married yet that is also something which has been ignored by her family somehow.

The way Hamnah got married in a rush and no one can see what she is going through has been the most illogical scenario which makes even Romaissa’s character unconvincing.

Can you think of any other drama on air right now which showed illogical situations? Feel free to share your thoughts.

  • Good post , and I only watch Ruswai among all the dramas mentioned here.
    In Ruswai Sameera paid a very heavy price because of her father’s labarwayi. He chose to help his friend’s daughter insteed of his own daughter, he even didn’t support his daughter to get justic after the rape. But he encouraged her to go with her husband and forget the past. When the father realized that he was wrong for trusting his friend and he saw how selfish his DIL and SIL turned out to be ..it is his regret which killed him , not Sameera..because she was angry since the day she got raped. Yet he didn’t kill himself.

    • Nooo you are wrong. He tried to save both of them. He tried his best. Sameera’s behaviour towards him was so wrong in every way. He did not deserve it. I never. Understood why she kept on blaming the poor man. I don’t feel sorry for Sameera. She is so forgiving of warda but blamed her father without any reason. It is stupid.

      • No he didn’t try to safe both…it was the basic story line…he should fight to save his daughter…untill those criminal shot him..he was a weak father nd didn’t support his daughter in her worst time.

  • I have watched only a few of Ruswai episodes, the only convincing part of it was presentation of issues in “watta-satta” marriages. Dialogues and situations were quite realistic.

    Ye Dil Mera is totally manhandled, or else it could be a chart- buster play.

    Jhooti to khair ajeeb hee play hai, aik qist dekh ker hee dil bhar gaya. Such a waste of talented log.

    Ishqiya is simply a re-run and it’s one of the unconvincing areas is Rumaissa’s chattering.. uff it’s super annoying now. Kon baat kerta hai bhai aisay.

  • I thinks ruswai story shifted from rape victim to problems in wata satta marriages and specially warda(directers daughter) which got more coverage as compared to main lead.

  • Agreed with every word. Ruswai should end now. What have they shown? Whatever is written is exactly how I feel. I don’t like sameera any more. What she did with her father was so wrong but no one can see that why??? Why did they show the rape if it was only gona be used to break the marriage so ridiculous. In Ye dil mera Ana and her father situation also the same as discussed in this article. What is wrong with these people. It is better that they end drama in 12 episodes instead of doing all this and destroying the story. Good post by reviewit.

    • Agreed. More problems because of writers trying to stretch the story. Ruswai’s writer criticized MPTH so much and look what she came up with herself.

  • In ruswai they only used rape as a tool for conflict and to start a chain reaction of watta satta polygamy marital abuse. This wasnt story of a rape survivor, but of a ‘susral survivor’.

    • Rape hona wali girls ka saath kitni problems hotee hain yah dikha raha hain but obviously this is not the main topic

      • Sis ap Agar khud ko dunya ke saamne zahir na karen to shayad ye prblm apke saath kam ho skti plzzz don’t mind
        Apna libaas aur apni nazreen
        Dono ko bacha kr rakhein

      • Agar problems hi dikhani hain to hum khabarain hi sun letay hain. If you are making a drama on social issue, then show the problem’s solution. Survivor dikhana hai victim nai. Udaari bhi yhi issue tha but it was handled properly. 29 episodes main ‘society ki reality’ dikha Kay aakhri 2 episodes main society ka ‘change of heart’ nai dikhana hota.

    • I think they are trying to show how the families get destroyed and have to be rebuilt after big crisis like this. It is not focusing on the victim only but focusing on the other members of the family related to the victim.

  • I watch only Hum Dramas therefore as regards Ye Dil Mera I find it to be immensely interesting.Yes,there are a few discrepancies but they are present in almost all our plays because I feel that the writers keep on writing the stories while the dramas are being aired.No wonder there are inconsistencies.The continuity and order is deeply affected in a story if it is being written erratically.

  • Geo is just producing Saas Bahu, Bhabi, Dusri Bivi, Zalim husband again and again.
    Ary is over doing the social issues and is unable to handle any of them properly.
    Hum TV brings some good scripts but they all eventually become victims of dragging and bad direction.

  • جیسا کہ پہلے کسی نے لکھا ہے کہ بہتر ہوگا کہ ڈراموں کو طول دینے کی بجائے قسطیں کم کر دیں کیوں کہ کہانی کو طول دینے کی کوشش میں لکھاری کہانی کا تسلسل ہی بھول جاتے ہیں۔ ڈرامہ کہیں سے شروع ہو کے کہیں پہنچ جاتا ہے اور کہیں ختم۔ ہوتا ہے۔

    • کبھی کبھی یوں محسوس ہوتا ہے کے رائیٹر نے کہانی شروع تو کردی پر اب اسے سمجھ نہیں آرہا کے ختم کیسے کرنی ہے

  • You can also add kahy deep jaly … The drama was great but her bhabi is a vamp ..nd lieing through out the drama seriel… nd the unusual hero he loves rids but he can even trust her what a rubbish…

  • Well,iam totally agree with your comments about ruswai,no one blaming sameer for her father death and also surprised about the reaction of their 2nd daughter,how she openly discussed the news of salman 2nd marriage in front of all don’t she knew the reaction and the mess which is now happening in their home actually they both are responsible for their father death .

  • I’m sorry but sameeras behaviour in ruswai is completely understandable. Her father protected his daughter in law rather than his daughter. When someone goes through that sort of trauma of course they will be bitter. She still cared for her dad as she was checking his blood pressure etc but he still chose not to save her when she was being abused by her husband. Her character is absolutely spot on. Stupid mentality where shes expected to forgive her dad so easily just because hes her father. As with her babhi, you can tell she has some resentment towards her too but shes thinking of her brothers child and also trying to save his marriage b
    ecause ultimately she knows her brother and his wife loved each other

  • so true… I can’t tolerate Salman ki maa in RUSWAI…Her dialogue delivery is so irritating and not natural at all. Who agrees?

  • In my eyes, drama “Mera dil mera dushman” also moves along some illogical situation, the bhabhi is full of negativity. Showing such family drama brings a worse impact on the surrounding.

  • Ruswai is very good drama.i like smeeras charecter..drama story boht achi hai.rape victom kese survive kerti hain.es bat ko dikhaya gya hai

  • I wonder why noorulain who was so intent on doing internship n learning is suddenly at home with nothing to do!! Amaan being such a broad minded person never once suggests her joining the office?
