2016 has brought lot of good news for Pakistani entertainment industry, especially for the big screen. Sharmeen won another Oscar, her second, for a short-documentary film while a lot of Pakistani films generated handsome revenue during their opening weeks.
However, it has been a little lack-luster for TV other than Pakistan Super League so far. The only drama that is gathering some real momentum is Mann Mayal and I’m not sure even if that would end up being in any top list for the decade. So it seems like perfect time to go back and remember some of the best of TV.
Here are 3 vintage and classic Pakistani dramas that you’d definitely love to watch anytime of the year!
