Maybe not top ten but definitely up there is “Uncle Urfi” lead actors: February 26, Literary festivals FOR a country with a literacy rate of only 58pc, Pakistan seems to host an abundance of literary festivals. Dhuwan and Sunehray Din are missing but I see all this happy nostalgia and longing for the old Pakistan. Pakistan wants to change, says US envoy for religious freedom. Dr S I H Zaidi. These are tooooooooooo good tv drama series. Never tired of watching the old goldies on youtube or any other medium.
Much ahead than others on many accounts. With Laila Zuberi etc. In India we loved these programmes as there was nothing comparable made in India. There is a need for India to revisit its security policies in the occupied region. If the PM was focused on the wrong questions earlier, his approach to UFG is focusing on the wrong answer. The one missing ‘ Dhoond’, with handsome Mahmood Masood. However, after looking her picks and the order she arranged, it is obvious this list is compiled by someone who is either born or raised and or spent a large portion of life in Karachi. Although it had only 13 episodes, drama-watchers remember the streets being deserted at the time it would air.
I voted for Waris as No 1 as I remember the city of Lahore had a deserted look when this particular drama was telecasted. I would love to add Andhera Ujala n fifty fifty instead of Ainak wala Jin.
And also that this list should’nt be complete without Bano Qudsia’s plays. Dear reader, online ads enable us to deliver the journalism you value. Our society has regressed Big time. For me the TV dramas ‘angan teraha’ and ‘taleem-e-baslighan’ are exceptionally good.
List of Pakistani television series
Waris is the best Drama that i have ever watched. Equally liked in India. It follows the lives of three young, happy-go-lucky friends who have just joined the army, and teaches the very important lesson of leading a purposeful and passionate life.
Initially it ran for half an hour which was converted into one hour due to public demand. I totally agreed that Aik Mohabbat Sau Afsanay should be serlal this list.
PTV Drama Serial Aagosh Ep# 01 – video dailymotion
Are episodde available on DVD’s? That begs the question why don’t you go out and reclaim your country? I miss my Pakistan of that era. I am Indian and always adore these dramas!

A rerun of some of these on International Channels would be highly appreciated by the older as well as the present generations, and enable the Pakistani as also the Indian communities living abroad to understand each others’ cultures and ways of life which are common in many ways so that there is more cordiality and congeniality among them henceforth.
Is there any way to bring back those good old times? It was an adaptation of draa Book “Fathers and Sons”.
I was told that PTV does not even have print of the original version and it had to be re-shot with different cast to re-telecast. Dhuwan and Sunehray Din are missing but Much better than the nonsense we get to see now in general!
Known for its witty dialogues and the strong, endearing, candid character of Sana played wpisode Shehnaz SheikhAnkahi was quick to reach cult status.
Please someone bring back that old seral, peaceful, powerful and glorious Pakistan. Missing ‘Dhundh’ from the list.
This a very incomplete list. Mandhan yes agreed we used to run towards homes in the evening leaving our favourite game of cricket to watch ainak wala jin. Today’s drama on television has no basis in our culture and country and worth nothing.
AAGHOSH EP 1
Just by reading, Ainak Wala Jinn, I had flashback of the best 10 years of my life. Naye Silsilay was aired in All of these drama’s are worth to watch, even now sometime I search and find some epsode Aalif Noon on YouTube and show to my kids.
A fast paced story of doctors working together in a hospital in Karachi, serila actors Marina Khan and Rahat Kazmi quickly became a favorite on-screen couple the old school equivalent of Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan.
A very interesting and good picks by Bismah.
This list is just a glimps of all the blockbuster drama Pakistan ever produced. Good old days, and thank you Zia for taking away that Pakistan and giving the present Pakistan to it’s present generation. Top 10 lists are usually debatable, however its difficult to understand how masterpieces like ‘Aangan Tera’, ‘Andhera Ujala’ and ‘Jaangloos’ failed to make the cut and yet relatively lightweight stuff like ABC and Ankhaee did.
