Pakistani dramas have always been very popular in the entire Indian subcontinent. The golden era of drama industry of Pakistan started in the 1970s and ended in 1990s. During that period, a number of interesting and attention-grabbing dramas forced Pakistani viewers to stay at home and watch these interesting and absorbing dramas. That was undoubtedly the peak era for the Pakistani dramas. Today, things have changed a bit, but still, some channels like Hum TV have a huge viewership for its interesting dramas.

At the beginning of 2000s, Pakistani drama industry saw a major drop in its popularity. It was because of the emergency of glamorous Indian dramas. They gained remarkable popularity and damaged the drama industry of Pakistan. It is true that Pakistani drama industry is still recovering from the shock that Indian dramas gave it. In the mid 2000s, the popularity of Indian dramas declined considerably. That was the time when new and intelligent Pakistani writers appeared on the scene and gave some really interesting dramas to the Pakistani audience. Some of the best dramas of that time are Humsafar, Yeh Zindagi Hay, Bano, Durr-e-Shahwar, etc.

Today, Pakistani dramas are not as popular as they used to be, but still they have a good viewership in both Pakistan and in the neighboring countries like India. The dramas that are dominating today are Turkish and are very popular among Pakistani audience. Some Pakistani actors, directors and producers have strongly criticized TV channels for telecasting Turkish dramas. According to them, Turkish dramas have damaged the drama and entertainment industry of Pakistan. The real challenge to these actors, writers, directors and producers is to bring something better than Turkish to the screen. Some Pakistani TV channels, such as Hum TV dramas, Geo Kahani dramas and ARY digital dramas work really hard to regain the lost popularity of dramas and they have succeeded to some extent. During and after this temporary revival, a slight increase in the demand of Pakistani dramas online has been seen. However, sill the drama makers need to do do more efforts to please Pakistani drama audience.
