Considered one of the most realistic depictions of Pakistan, Waris is a story of a feudal family, their struggles to maintain their land and wealth, and the inter-family differences and tussles that lead to their downfall. Oh man, I am a 90s kid. Mandhan yes agreed we used to run towards homes in the evening leaving our favourite game of cricket to watch ainak wala jin. This loose fiction can’t make its place among Urdu Literature as it contained unrealistic characters and unwanted length to make it more long and to entertain every casual reader. Return to Book Page. Osama Siddique rated it really liked it Mar 29, Jangloos wasn’t commercial literature to entertain but it dealt with major corruption and fidelities in our society. There was also some commercial literature avialable in market which published in various magazines in parts including few marathon series by Ahmad Iqbal such as Shikaari Madaari Khilaarri Anaarri and Juwaari.
Later watched its dramatized version on PTV. Maybe not top ten but definitely up there is “Uncle Urfi” lead actors: A picture of our system Pkistan drama have been always strong in every part. Although not a drama but a drama in real life, “Kaliyan”, a children’s program that gave us innumerable artists of top most level. If the book surprized me towards the end, I will revisit the review and change the rating. Mostly agree with your choice but I am most disappointed that you did not include the name of most important person, the writer Things have not changed a lot since these plays were aired years ago. It can be added with those two books of rich work which I mentioned above.

Such a shame that no such programmes are made in Pakistan anymore. Did I write running? I wouldn’t name the authors here. Equally liked in India. Ironically Laali who’s born crook but still possessed moral values and faithfulness but Raheem Daad who was respectful but small land owner originally kept going jngloos steal which he didn’t deserve.
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.
The list of Pakistani top dramas will be incomplete with out Ashfaq Ahmed’s classic dramas! I think Kalyan of Farooq Qaiser should also be included inline the list and people still remmber haiga and uncle sargam. After 27 years of not getting enough of Tanhaiyana sequel named Tanhaiyan: Stories within a story I enjoyed that one. Return to Book Page.
Jangloos: Vol. 1 / جانگلوس: جلد اول
People from different cities and provinces would work together and speak their national language Urdu. All listed dramas are worth review much more than any drama of today but, “Alpha Bravo Charlie” is the Titanic of all dramas ever played on Pakistani TV’s.
That song from Niyara Noor!
All of these drama’s are worth to watch, even now sometime I search and find some like Aalif Noon on YouTube and show to my kids. Mostly agree with your choice but I am most disappointed that you did not include the name of most important person, the writer Things have not changed a lot since these plays were aired years ago.

I think shahnaz shaikh epitomizes women in Pakistan. Agreed with above ALL It will be interesting to see viewers from Lahore, Rawalpindi, Peshawar or Quetta put forth their top 10 and rank them 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.
A part from first one which is Skikaari, remaining work of Ahmad Iqbal can’t be taken seriously. This list is missing several of many iconic drama serials. Assad Mehdi rated it it was amazing Feb 19, Hardcover4th editionpages. Osama Siddique rated it really liked it Mar 29, Ohh God read late, I voted All. Most popular ‘Give peace a chance’: Mandhan yes agreed we used to run towards homes in the evening leaving our favourite game of cricket to watch ainak wala jin.

Today our dramas are more of big houses, cars and luxury show-off then original acting and stories.
Best days of my Life. It can be added with those two books of rich work which I mentioned above.
No “uncle Urfi” in the list. All above mentioned dramas are masterpiece Thanks for telling us about the problem.
No Iphones, no ipads, Rs. On that time Bhutto had a charisma and that’s why many youngsters were hopeful that whatever they tolerated is gonna come to an end.
