13 Times Pakistani Entertainment Industry Terribly Disappointed Us In 2017

By Sarah Babar | 27 Dec, 2017

Pakistani entertainment has recently seen a crazy hike, in terms of the quantity of projects. However, we also saw a massive dip in quality. With storylines becoming either repetitive or boring, films that came packaged with loopholes and lapses in stories, and dramas that started off great but then we were left wondering whatever the hell happened, along the way. We’ll get into films, first, and then dramas, so brace yourself for the worst of 2017


1. We start off with whatever ‘Thora Jee Le’ was

2. And dive straight into ‘Raasta’

3. While ‘Chalay Thay Saath’ was a film we were all looking forward to watching, but we weren’t feeling the same kind of excitement when we left the theatre

4. Wow, with ‘Yalghaar’ we don’t even know what happened – bad editing, zero continuity and bad lighting coupled with some patriotism was the package that we got

5. ‘Chain Aye Na’ waS SUCH a huge disappointment that Shahroz Sabzwari had a massive meltdown over the way the audience reacted

Contrary to what fellow colleague Mr. Yasser Puri says, btw (he’s a big, BIG fan).

6. There were mixed reviews when ‘Mehrunissa V Lub U’, it received an average of 2 stars out of 5 from critics

7. ‘Verna’, too was one of the most anticipated movies of the year, but it also ended up being one of the least liked

Right when the year was ending, we thought our industry would have made up for the decline in quality, but we were wrong…

8. ‘Rangreza’ was so terrible it put many off of the good looking star cast

9. With ‘Arth – The Destination‘, was even worse… commercially and critically

In spite of Shaan aggressively defending his film all over the internet, it failed to cut it for the audience.

And yes, Shaan had a meltdown over it, too.


10. While our drama industry didn’t disappoint us as much as the people on the big screen, we saw Baaghi‘ start off absolutely wonderfully, and then trickle down into stagnation and a poor continuation of the story

11. We also saw Alif, Allah Aur Insaan‘ started off as a very balanced equation of four plots, it just feels like they’re dragging the plot as far as they can stretch it

Guess, the fact that it was tackling FOUR PLOTS, was a recipe for disaster.

12. With ‘Daldal‘, they tried saving the show, very obviously, by suddenly shifting the story and the main character to London but no one could save it… not even Zahid Ahmed

However, we felt the audience lose interest in the drama and that the makers were trying really hard to keep the show interesting

13. But the biggest disappointment of this year was the fact that Yakeen Ka Safar’ ended, leaving us with all the other disappointments to watch

Sorry, but ‘Yakeen Ka Safar’ has got to be one of the best dramas to have aired on recent television, and that’s one time we were genuinely sad a show ended.
