I asked this question a few days back, but was told to post it in this forum:
Does anybody have any suggestions for good Pakistani dramas? I have some old ones at home, but i've gone through them.
I don't mind if they're old or new, as long as they're descent. oh, and also, can you please be kind enough to give a short description to what kind of drama it is. For example, comedy, serious, romance, thriller, mystery etc.
Some of the ones i've seen a long time ago, i can't remember their names, but the ones i recall are:
Sanyaarei Dil (i think) - about the army.
well, that's about it.
I'll be most grateful for your responses.

Hmmmm..let me think,
Ankahi -M. Khan or Shehnaz shaikh--old one--romantic ..excellent.
Dhoop Kinaarey--M. Khan--medical romance!
Marvi--superb drama about feudal/modern clash of cultures and women's oppression cum love story; brilliant--MAHNOOR "kya baat hai! " Balouch, Ghazala Siddiqui...
Babar - Babar Ali, and many others! Historical drama about the founder of the Mughal Dynasty. Superb.
Alpha BRavo Charlie--brilliant drama about life and love in the PAkistani Army. Shot on location and starring real soldiers as actors! Dir. by Shuaib Mansoor.
Yeh Zindagi--MAHNOOR again with Qaisar Khan and Humayoon Saeed and,...I can't recall his name! Brilliant romantic/social drama about impotence and it's taboo in our society.
Hum Bhi wohi, tum bhi wohi--model Sadia Imam ( )and Shakeel--romantic comedy. quite lighthearted but excellent!
Ghulaam Gardish --Abid Ali, Amina Haqq, Iffat Raheem (two gorgeous models--this is a new trend to put the top models in PTV dramas
)...brilliant social drama about a Sufi Shaykh [Abid Ali] and the problems he faces with his modernised close family and biradari/politics. One of the very best.
Shab Daig --tragic comedy about the consequences of a person who is ashamed of his culture; Ali Ijaz stars Very funny and poignant.
Awaazein ---excellent drama about the problems of Pakistanis living in the West. Shot mostly in London. Huma Nawaab....many stars.
ChoTi si duniya -- quite old comdey about an anglicised Pakistani who returns to his village in Sindh. Very very funny but relevant at the same time.
UDaan--the life and loves of PIA aircrew members; big budget--shot all over the world!
Resham makes an appearance as a bride...
Ghalib/Mirza Ghalib in America --two dramas about the great poet; the first a serious biographical/musical the second a great comedy and social commentary--Ghalib comes back from Jannat to help an ABCD!! Mohammad QAvi Khan as Ghalib in both!
Aashiyana -- good drama about the problems of the domestic problems of a v. rich daughter...stars the gorgeous Seemi Zaidi :0
There's another romantic triangle drama with Seemi Zaidi and Mohsin Khan about what happens when a younger brother marries his elder brother's former mehbooba....
hope this helps

Oh yeh, Hasnain ji ,
this you HAVE to watch:
Aik Mohabbat, Sau Afsaanay --dramatisation of the famous short stories by Ashfaq Ahmed; each play [story] is about an hour long--absolutely top class with all the top actors making appearances; all the stories deal with a certain aspect of love. BRILLIANT.
Nadia --aap dramoN ke baare mein kaafi baa-zauq lagtee hain It's a pity our religious viewpoints are so different!!!

Hasnain.....mmmmm.....well! I think ASIF SAHIB has listed all the good drams for your attention.....but there is one really old Drama based on novel written by Fatima-Surriya-Bajiya..."AFSHANN...named after the heroine of the novel….it is a classic….and encapsulate almost every aspect of our culture…it is a story of a family….full of love, jealousy and sacrifice for each other. You'll be very lucky if you get a copy of that over here.
ASIF JI for your attention…..Iffat Raheem top model…I know she really looks gorgeous on screen….but if you ever have a chance to look at her from the front don't blame your eyes……one thing I don't understand about you guys….your standard of beauty are so weird. Khair app ki app hi janaiN http://www.pak.org/gupshup/biggrin.gif
