How To Make A Drama Successful 101: Add A Rich, Toxic Male Character Into The Mix

With a swagger that screams “I own the world” our male heroes strut along, exuding an air of nonchalance, clad in a tailored three-piece suit that could make a tailor weep tears of joy. A swift slap here and there, and they become the perfect heroes. They toss objects from one corner of the room to the other with a finesse that leaves us swooning, all because, well, they just look so darn good doing it.

And who doesn’t adore a damsel in distress? As she enters the scene, her hair flawlessly blow-dried, every strand falling into place as if by divine intervention. Ah, the moment when our male protagonist and the distressed damsel cross paths – it’s as predictable as it is irresistible. I mean, really, why would any sensible girl turn down the advances of a male chauvinist? Especially one who’s rich, powerful, and utterly obsessed with you? What more could a girl possibly desire, right?

Hey, no judgment zone here, folks! We’re just here to highlight the pulse of the masses, those millions of eager eyes glued to their screens week after week, soaking in the melodrama with plotlines as familiar as an old friend’s face. Let’s face it, when it comes to viewership, numbers don’t lie, Chico.

And speaking of the latest buzz in town, let’s talk about ‘Shiddat‘.

The drama stars the dashing Muneeb Butt portraying Sultan, a walking red carpet. He’s a self-made man, independent, unstoppable, and doesn’t take no for an answer. The drama follows Sultan as he finds himself head over heels for Isra, played by Anmol Baloch, and suddenly, stalking and scheming become his new favourite pastimes.

And you guessed it, the drama’s skyrocketing to the top of the charts, raking in millions of views and leaving fans on the edge of their seats. Ah, the sweet, sweet allure of obsession – who can resist?

This tried-and-true formula of featuring toxic male characters continues to reign supreme. Producers opt for this storyline knowing it’s a surefire way to attract viewers and drive up ratings, resulting in commercial triumphs. From ‘Kaisi Teri Khudgarzi’ to ‘Muqaddar’ and countless others, audiences are drawn to the drama and tension these characters bring, making them perennial favourites despite their predictability.

Of course, the star power of actors like Danish Taimoor adds an extra layer of allure to these projects. With his striking looks and charismatic presence, Taimoor effortlessly embodies the role of the perfect hero, winning over audiences’ hearts in the process. And let’s not forget about Faysal Quraishi’s captivating performance in ‘Muqaddar’ as Saif – his portrayal added depth and intrigue to the storyline, contributing to the drama’s exceptional success. As viewers revel in the entertainment these talented actors provide, producers earn great profits, making it a win-win situation for all involved.

While we’re all drawn to the magnetic appeal of a male-toxic hero in drama, let’s not forget the importance of not glorifying such characters. Sure, creative freedom knows no bounds, but it’s crucial to emphasize that these figures are products of fiction, not models for emulation. An ending that refrains from glorification is imperative, serving as a reminder of the distinction between fantasy and reality. Let’s keep the drama gripping without romanticizing harmful traits, ensuring our entertainment remains both captivating and conscientious.
