Old Pakistani dramas were just a world apart from the dramas we see nowadays. These shows had soul, substance and wholesome stories. Apart from the scripting, the acting talent ‘back then’ was just impossible to hate- lines were delivered so perfectly and don’t get me started on comedic timing was just on point.
