When compared with the last decade, the camera performance and quality, engaging content, and the remarkable performances of the main characters have actually left the audience in an awe of the overall Pakistani drama industry. Making a lot of colossal strides with quality content, realism, and innovative stories, Pakistani dramas have nailed the purpose of a drama. In Site there are list of Top 10 Dramas of Pakistan.
One of the best parts about the Pakistani drama serials is the variety of content that they are bringing on the forefront. There are a lot more topics and social issues to discuss than only portraying “saas-bahu k jhagry and sazishain” as experienced in most of the Indian drama serials. Out dramas are not just nationally accepted but they have been internationally acclaimed as well for the past few years.
Moreover, there appears no dragging of the plot at all. Pakistani drama serials take up one fine issue and discuss it with length explaining the possible situations and how to handle such situations under available circumstances. You don’t need to wait for that melodrama or long weekends spent on the marriage preparations. Rather everything is explained to-the-point. This also helped us in our schooling and making us believe in the harsh and stark realities of life.

Mere Pass Tum Ho still comes on the top of the list whenever you think of top Pakistani dramas owing to its remarkable story and brilliant performance of the main characters.

The drama serial has been done under the perfect directorial skills of Nadeem Baig. Not a single episode of this drama serial has missed its mark.
The Spiritual One—Alif
Alif comes on the second number in the list of the top 10 drama serials in Pakistan. Alif comes with a multicast that includes Sajal Ali, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Kubra Khan, Ahsan Khan, and Osman Khalid Butt. The performances of these all characters have actually made this drama serial a blockbuster of the era.
Alif drama serial was based on a novel written by the very talented and versatile Umera Ahmed. The writer never disappointed her fans. She always comes up with quality content that usually revolves around the real stories while stirring up emotions.
The story is all about spirituality. It explains Man’s relationship with his creator, the Almighty Allah. Beautifully directed by Haseeb Hassan, Alif never misses the chance to lure its audience. The story appeared so engaging and everyone sticks to their television screens every Saturday night. Alif drama serial has a separate fan base. Each character has put his or her maximum efforts and this is the reason that it comes on number second on the list.
The Remarkable—Ranjha Ranjha Kardi
With such an enchanting plot and emotional story, Ranjha Ranjha Kardi really surprised its audience. The story appeared to the very unique as I myself have never experienced such content in my life. It speaks of a story of a girl named Noori, the role played by the very talented Iqra Aziz. She dreams of finding a prosperous and bright future for herself as she is the daughter of a sweeper. She rejects to accept her fate and strive for a better future. That’s where she felt a lot of hardships along with betrayal. She is betrayed by a man who claimed to be in love with her but simply denying the fact afterward.
The drama serial was internationally acclaimed too owing to the brilliant performance of Imran Ashraf aka Bhoola. Imran Ashraf never disappointed his fans. However, his performance in this serial has broken all records. His acting has earned him a great name in the Pakistani drama industry.
The drama serial is directed by Kashif Nisar while written by Faiza Iftikhar. Syed Jibran essays the role of the antagonist in this serial. He was the one who has betrayed Noori in their love affair. In order to witness a plot this much engaging and a story such an emotional one, then Ranjha Ranjha Kardi is the best choice you could ever make.
The Romantic One—Do Bol
When it comes to the most romantic on-screen couple of 2019, then everyone would definitely choose Hira Mani and Affan Waheed. The couple has been hailed for their remarkable on-screen chemistry in hit drama serial ‘Do Bol’.
Do Bol has been a huge success of its time. The exciting story along with some emotional and physiological twists is all that the modern audience love to watch. The plot and storyline of this drama serial differ from other serials that were airing at that time. This drama serial also offers remarkable acclaim to our stunning actress Hira Mani. She herself accepted the fact that her acting skills were polished on the set of “Do Bol”.
Hira Mani’s character was an example in itself and Affan Waheed too carried his role brilliantly. Taking up these two jewels for this drama serial was absolutely justification for the script. The drama serial was written by the versatile writer in our entertainment industry Sarwat Nazir.
The Real One—Ehd-e-Wafa
The blockbuster drama serial Ehd-e-Wafa has completely justified its title. The team behind Ehd-e-Wafa promises to bring something unique and natural through this script and they actually did it. It explains the journey of four friends who have gone through a lot of hardships and struggles and eventually ended up being together. Such experience of friendship was very amazing to witness especially for the youth. They find this serial quite relatable to their lives. It has been so long that the Pakistani industry hasn’t come up with such themes. So, it was indeed a treat for all of us.
Ehd-e-Wafa was produced by the ISPR. The cast of the drama serial includes Ahad Raza Mir, Osman Khalid Butt, Wahaj Ali, Ahmed Ali Akbar, Zara Noor Abbas, and Alizeh Shah. The serial is written by one of the best writers our entertainment industry has ever produced, Mustafa Afridi. Ehd-e-Wafa was completed under the wonderful directorial skills of Saife Hassan.
You may not get attached from the very beginning of the drama serial, but once you are onto it, the serial will gradually highlight some harsh realities of our society. The very beginning of the drama serial “Khaas” may appear to you dull and drab and just like the usual story of any relationship that we have been witnessing for the past years.
Khaas is indeed a masterpiece done perfectly by Sanam Baloch, Haroon Shahid, and Ali Rehman. With exceptional performance, these three characters have won the hearts of their fans. This serial was penned down by Sarwat Nazir, so, the success was quite obvious.
Khaas deals with all the issues that relate to abusive marriages. In Pakistan, very few writers come up with such stories. The directorial skills of Danish Nawaz were beyond expectations. He has put a lot of effort in giving life to the characters.
The Physiological Thriller—Ishq Zah-e-Naseeb
Ishq Zah-e-Naseeb is a physiological thriller of 2019 and its final episode was conducted in 2020. It explains the life of a person who suffers from a dual personality disorder. The exceptional performance of Zahid Ahmed was something that made this drama serial stand among the top 10 Pakistani dramas.
The plot and storyline of the drama serial Ishq Zah-e-Naseeb were genuinely extraordinary. I could not remember when a physiological thriller was made before this drama serial. It has its twists and turns jotted down by Hashim Nadeem. With a lot of suspense, a little bit horror, and brilliant dialogues delivery, Ishq Zah-e-Naseeb was indeed a masterpiece.
It portrayed the life of a man who suffers from a split personality disorder and how he manages to kill his other personality by the very end of the serial. The lead cast of the drama serial includes Sonia Hussain, Zahid Ahmed, Sami Khan, Zarnish Khan, and Yumna Zaidi.
A Trailblazing Success—Yaariyan
Capturing a record-breaking viewership, Yaariyan has been a huge success of the era. The drama serial features Ayeza Khan, Junaid Khan, Muneeb Butt, and Momal Sheikh in the lead roles. While the characters of Hina Bayat, Mehmood Aslam, and Shagufta Bhatti were of great importance as well.
Ayeza Khan has essayed the role of the antagonist in this drama serial. She was seen creating a lot of mess, betrayal, and misunderstanding between the leading characters. It was she who has plotted evil against her sister but eventually suffers everything on her own.
Yaariyan has been penned down by Samina Ijaz while it is directed by Wajahat Hussain.
The Daring One—Ruswai
Ever since the drama serial begins, it hooked its audience to its maximum. It gathers a lot of viewership and even still it is receiving rave reviews from the audience. It explained the story of a girl Sameera who has gone through a gang rape. The role of Sameera has been played by the talented actress Sana Javed.
Sana Javed has never disappointed her fans. She always comes up with some unique subjects or either socially relevant scripts. The issue of sexual abuse is rampant in our story and powerful women like Sana Javed who boldly opt for such topics are very much required to spread awareness among the women in our country.
The drama serial deals with the stereotypical behavior of the society towards rape victims. No one is willing to take her. The character of Mikaal Zulfiqar is that of a typical man who apparently appears to be in love with the woman but once she has lost her chastity while suffering from gang rape, he no longer stands with her leaving her devastated. The drama serial also explained the old concept of ‘watta Satta’ in our society and what consequences it has brought along.
The Love Comedy—Suno Chanda 2
After the success of Suno Chanda, the team behind this serial comes up with a sequel of it that also appeared to be a treat for the viewers. Usually, it is believed that most of the sequels do not come up to the expectation of the people. However, Suno Chanda has very well carried its responsibility of entertaining the audience. Suno Chanda 2 is purely a family comedy serial that you can enjoy while sitting with your family and munching on your favorite snacks. With a great amount of viewership, Suno Chanda 2 has been considered one of the best entertainment package for the Pakistani people.
The main cast of Suno Chanda 2 includes Farhan Saeed, Iqra Aziz, Nadia Afghan, Farhan Agha, Arjumand Rahim, Raza Talish, and Sabeena Farooq.
