11 New Insanely Addictive Pakistani Dramas You Have To Start Watching Right Now

By Iman Zia | 13 Mar, 2018

If you feel like you’re suddenly burdened with an unbearable palette of dramas on telly, and have no idea which ones to follow, then fret no more. We’ve condensed the best guide to the best of television for you right here.


‘Aakhri Station’ – ARY Digital, Tuesdays 9 pm

The mini-series isn’t anything quite like what you’re used to on recent television. It’s raw, unpolished and ruggedly real. The Sarmad Khoosat production’s only seven episodes long as it focuses on seven female protagonists fighting poverty, HIV, marital abuse, and rape. It’s four episodes in, and boy oh boy is the acting absolutely gobsmackingly marvelous.

‘Pukaar’ – ARY Digital, Thursdays 8 pm

Starring Zahid Ahmed and Yumna Zaidi, ‘Pukaar’ keys in on haveli life, and the aftermath of Yumna marrying into a feudal family. While Zahid is yet to make an appearance, the story is unfolding brilliantly!

‘Tabeer’ – Hum Television, Tuesdays 8 pm

‘Tabeer’ marks actor Imran Ashraf’s debut as a screenwriter for the Iqra Aziz and Shahzad Sheikh starrer. ‘Tabeer’ revolves around two couples, both pregnant and both hopelessly in love. Fawad (Shahzad Sheikh) and Zarnish (Seemi Pasha) are from a richer background, and Yasir (Imran Ashraf) and Tabeer (Iqra Aziz) hail from a lower economic class. It’s great so far, (and a bit tragic) so have a box of tissues at hand!

‘Bela Pur Ki Dayan’ – Hum Television, Thursdays, 8 pm

Sarah Khan and Adnan Siddiqui lead this supernatural drama, with the former possessed. While the horror genre within dramas is still relatively untapped, ‘Bela Pur Ki Dayan’ is directed by veteran Saifee Hassan, the man behind the extraordinary ‘Sang-e-Mar Mar.’ So we do have high hopes for this, and the first few episodes have not disappointed in the slightest! If you scare easy, don’t watch alone!

‘Shayyad’ – Geo, Saturdays, 8 pm

It’s still on telly, and it’s honestly bloody fantastic (excuse my language). Starring Uzair Jaswal, Sadia Khan and Noman Ijaz, the family orientated drama has maintained storyline throughout. Sadia is the orphan taken into Uzair’s incredibly well-off family, and the two grow close. Saad (Uzair) falls for Hani (Sadia), but she’s more interested in the mysterious Noman Ijaz (who’s an abusive too btw). It’s beautifully set up, with each scene aesthetically very pleasing.

Noor Ul Ain’ – ARY Digital, Saturdays, 8 pm

This drama is starkly different to Sarmad’s other show currently aired – ‘Aakhri Station.’ Starring Imran Abbas and Sajal Aly, the rom-com orientated drama is a guilty pleasure if you love indulging in quirky, sappy stories within city life. The two marry each other against their parents’ wishes and try and make it work (also, the OST is divine).

‘Ghughi’ – TV One, Thursdays, 8 pm

Adnan Siddiqui continues to prove he’s one of the best as he takes on this taxing partition drama. Adnan is the Muslim man who kidnaps Hindu girl Nirmala (played by Aman Khan) in seeking redemption for his family’s honor. It’s achingly twisted and very well written. Adnan is simply fabulous, and although a little darker than its counterpart dramas on air right now – it’s very addictive!

‘Teri Meri Kahani’ – Hum Television, Wednesdays 9 pm

Pakistani model Saheefa Jabbar Khattak makes her debut with Azfar Rahman and Saboor Aly. The three are tangled up in a love triangle, where Azfar’s character is in love with Saboor’s character, but somehow marries Saheefa’s character. It’s great so far, and Saheefa really proves herself as a splendid actress.

‘Ishq Tamasha’ – Hum Television, Sundays 8 pm

Starring Aiman Khan, Faizan Khawaja, Junaid Khan and Kinza Hashmi ‘Ishq Tamasha’ centers around a mistreated orphan, a single girl looking after her family, and two brothers who are eventually torn apart. It’s riveting, and all four protagonists are fabulous. It’s not as light-hearted as it seems, and is a bit heavy, but a great watch nonetheless.

‘Ghar Titli Ka Par’ – Hum Television, Thursdays, 8 pm

Starring Shahzad Sheikh, Aiman Khan and Sanam Chaudhry, this love triangle is strangely addictive. Sanam pretty much plays a vindictive psychopath who uses her friendship with Aiman’s character to get close to Shazad’s character. It’s another guilty pleasure, and it’s a great watch. Sanam is so cruel you kind of root for her in a weird way. The drama’s premise is jealousy, and how it really can ruin lives.

‘Khamoshi’ – Hum Television, Saturdays, 8 pm

Starring Bilal Khan, Iqra Aziz and Zara Noor Abbas, ‘Khamoshi’ tells the tale of a girl struggling to make her own in society’s harshness, and how often you cannot trust even your own. Greed and money are themes throughout, and it’s been on air for a while so definitely binge-watch this one!
