Who doesn’t like a good laugh every now and then? We all have our preferences when it comes to comedy. Some of us enjoy situational comedies, some like romcoms (romantic comedies), some have a liking for satire (yup, guilty), there are also some takers for dark humor. But one of my absolute favorites is parody or spoofs.
Below are some of the best parodies I’ve seen:
Bushra Ansari is the undisputed queen of mimicry and here she does a wonderful impersonation of Tahira Syed and her mother.
One of the greatest talents of Pakistan, Moin Akhtar was the master of laughter. His comic timing was spot on and he was a true genius. There are countless ones I enjoyed watching but this one takes the cake for me.
Anwar Maqsood- the mastermind behind many popular shows is a treat to watch. This parody of him made by The Awaein Show is just hilarious.
This parody about Amir Liaqat made my day!
I can’t believe this is the same guy who played the ruthless Chacha Ishaaq on UBFN. Here on Hasb-e-Haal, he did an excellent parody of Meera.
And here we have Meera mimicking the actress Reema.
Saba Qamar nailed this parody of Veena Malik
My list wouldn’t be complete without my absolute favorite- Osman Khalid Butt and his sensational parody of Humsafar.
What are some of your favorite parodies? I’ve stayed clear of political satires and just focused on the ones around TV artists. P.S. Since many of our readers in Pakistan were unable to watch the videos on YouTube, I’ve uploaded them on Daily motion and I’ve added the links. Please let me know if you are able to watch them now :)
Yours in watching,
