Pakistani Dramas of 2020 Worth a Binge Watch

Pakistani drama industry produces a lot of dramas each year. All these dramas are categorized on the basis of their popularity, viewership, story, or the way they have been executed. Where some dramas become extremely popular, some fail to get the recognition the drama makers had hoped. In all the seasons throughout the year, there are certain dramas that the drama buffs find themselves recommending to their friends or family members. These are those kinds of dramas that can be binge-watched because they have the kind of content that is going to keep the interest alive in the show.

It has now become a sad reality that almost every single Pakistani drama is dragged, however, while binge-watching the drama, the best part is that those slow and probably uninteresting bits can always be skipped and the entire show can be watched with a lot of interest, that too without having to wait weekly for the next episode to air. This is the reason that these kinds of dramas make it to recommendation lists easily because they have interesting storylines and characters that makes it enough to qualify as decent entertainment.

Here is the list of Pakistani dramas of 2020 that are worth a binge-watch:

Director: Amin Iqbal
Producer: Six Sigma Plus
Channel: ARY Digital
Cast: Mohib Mirza, Tooba Siddique, Madiha Imam, Irfan Khoosat, Kashif Mehmood, Saba Hameed, Imran Peerzada, and others.

Dushman e Jaan was one of the best dramas of 2020. Although it was quite a short journey because the channel decided to air 4 episodes per week, but somehow it added to its popularity and then it was quite evident that the audience does like watching episodes back to back because it cuts down the waiting time and somehow also fastens the pace of the show.

If you haven’t watched Dushman e Jaan, you definitely need to because this drama has all the flavors to make it quality entertainment. The twists and turns, family dynamics, strong sibling relationships, a budding love story, and most importantly a meaningful transition of a bitter person into a selfless and giving soul makes Dushman e Jaan worth a binge-watch.

Fitrat

Writer: Nuzhat Saman
Director: Asad Jabal
Producer: 7th Sky Entertainment
Channel: Geo Entertainment
Cast: Saboor Aly, Ali Abbas, Zubab Rana, Mirza Zain Baig, Adla Khan, Ayesha Gul, Seemi Pasha, and others.

Drama serial Fitrat is currently on air and when it started, it garnered a lot of negative attention too because the audience found the content to be a bit too bold. However, now when the story is pretty much established, Fitrat is getting quite popular and is also attaining viewership. The fact that Fitrat airs 6 days a week makes it very easy to follow. The best part of this drama is the strong execution because so far, the story has stayed on track and the director’s to-the-point approach makes the situations and scenarios quite interesting.

This drama is based on the story of Faria, a gold digger who dreams big and doesn’t really have a moral compass to assess what’s right and wrong. She continues to do what she deems right without any consideration towards the people who are associated with her. This drama also has shown a relationship of a husband and wife based on truth, trust, and open communication which is again a rarity in Pakistani dramas. Drama serial Fitrat currently is at that stage where things might slow down but the fact that the audience gets to see it 6 times a week compensates a lot. It has quite a lot of twists and turns and has been executed perfectly, which definitely makes it worth a binge-watch. It definitely is a very interesting show with the acting and scenarios on-point!

Deewangi

Writer: Sadia Akhtar
Director: Zeeshan Ahmed
Producer: 7th Sky Entertainment
Channel: Geo Entertainment
Cast: Danish Taimoor, Hiba Bukhari, Ali Abbas, Mehmood Aslam, Ismat Zaidi, Faiza Gillani, Zoya Nasir, and others.

Deewangi is another drama which people might find themselves recommending others because of the very strong start which showed a love story of another kind. Deewangi did take a typical turn in the middle but the fact that the writer continued to show a husband who supported his wife through thick and thin and stayed loyal to her was one of the strongest aspects of the story. Deewangi does have typical scenarios too which revolve around the mistreatment of a girl at the hands of her mother in law but there are enough twists and turns which keep you going.

The fact that the character of an antagonist was so layered made it even more interesting to follow Deewangi’s journey. It showed how a person torn between his love and revenge ends up ruining everything. The drama also had a happy ending for someone and a sad ending for the other but it was a perfect entertainment package that can be binge-watched!

Fatima Awan & Zahra Mirza

  • Interesting list . I love to add Munafiq to the list , just for the good performances and the twists and turns in the story.

  • I have watched Deewangi and it is not worth binge watching at all. There is nothing different in it. Fitrat is also very hard to watch. Ghissi Pitti Mohabbat is a very good drama has a very different story and great acting. It is not listed here because of reviewit.pk’s animosity towards Fasih Bari Khan.
    Mushk is also a very nice drama

    • We’ve all got our views, but just because you’ve mentioned it, a show a year or two back titled “Ab Dekh Khuda Kya Karta Hai” had a similar storyline and less of stereotypical plotlines. Would highly recommend it.

  • Aoa ZM and FA!

    Cant believe this.
    There must be a strong reason for chosing nand, fitrat, log kya kahen gy.

    Well you haven’t added many of the great dramas of 2020.

  • The only ones i like from here is ALIF and pyar ke sadqay. Fitrat is okay but there is so many episodes, but ig the more episodes the better for binge watching.
