Release of new dramas left, right, and centre

Shiddat on Geo Entertainment

Under the direction of Zeeshan Ahmed and penned by Zanjabeel Asim, ‘Shiddat’ has taken the drama scene by storm, becoming the talk of the town. While the plot may not offer groundbreaking innovation, it’s the execution that truly sets this drama apart.

Starring Muneeb Butt and Anmol Baloch in the lead roles, the chemistry between them is undeniably intriguing. Following a familiar narrative of a wealthy man enamoured by a modest girl from a lower class, the twist of his obsessive behaviour adds a new layer to the storyline. Despite its predictable premise, the drama’s popularity speaks volumes, with viewers finding entertainment in its engaging twists and turns, as evident by its viewership statistics.

Fanaa on Green Entertainment

Helmed by director Najaf Bilgrami and scripted by Muhammad Qurban Ali Rao, ‘Fanaa’ unfolds as an enthralling tale of complex characters caught in a fierce battle of pride and intense romantic scenes. With Shehzad Sheikh and Nazish Jahangir portraying the central on-screen couple, the series promises an engaging narrative filled with complexities. Supported by the dynamic performances of Aijaz Aslam and Shaista Lodhi in pivotal roles, alongside a talented ensemble cast, the drama is poised to captivate audiences with its compelling storyline and stellar acting.

Presenting yet another romantic love story, but who’s complaining about a little romance? The audience eagerly awaited the release of ‘Burns Road Kay Romeo Juliet’, starring the rising star Hamza Sohail alongside the versatile Iqra Aziz. Directed by Fajr Raza and penned by Parisa Siddiqui, this drama is a promising addition to the genre. While we’re still in the midst of forming our opinions, there’s a sense of anticipation surrounding this production. With such talented leads and a creative team at the helm, our hopes are high for what ‘Burns Road Kay Romeo Juliet’ has in store.

In daring to tackle the delicate topic of mental health, ‘Pagal Khana’ takes a bold leap, and the audience response has been unexpectedly positive. While not breaking records in viewership, its appreciation signals a growing appetite for diverse narratives.

Dramas that concluded this month


Mein has left audiences stunned with its unexpected conclusion, revealing Zaid, portrayed by Wahaj Ali, living alone with both of his wives. Directed by Badar Mehmood and penned by Zanjabeel Asim Shah, the drama garnered significant viewership, but its finale elicited a mixed reaction from viewers. Despite its commercial success, many are relieved that the series has concluded after being drawn out. Congratulations to the team for their achievements, but it’s a relief for some that the story has finally come to an end.

Breaking News

The underdog has pleasantly surprised us with its compelling storytelling, maintaining a steady pace throughout and concluding with a realistic ending. ‘Breaking News‘ is about Mishal and Hussain’s journey, while ending happily, also reflects the harsh reality that justice doesn’t always triumph over evil. Credit goes to writer Aamir Raza and director Kashif Nisar for their skilful execution of the narrative, which has captivated audiences with its depth and authenticity.

Serial Killer

Penned by Umera Ahmed and directed by Fahad Noor, ‘Serial Killer’ kicked off with a strong start, boasting excellent execution. However, the conclusion proved underwhelming, succumbing to predictable storytelling and a lacklustre final episode. Nevertheless, the drama’s brevity offers a silver lining, making it a relatively short and enjoyable watch despite its flaws.

In the news: Abdullah Pur Ka Devdas

Although we’re currently unable to watch ‘Abdullah Pur Ka Devdas’ on Zee5, the anticipation for this intense romantic tale starring Bilal Abbas and Sarah Khan is palpable. The chemistry between the leads sizzles, and the storyline holds great promise. Here’s to hoping we’ll be able to enjoy the web series soon.

With its captivating saga of revenge, centred around the Pashtun tradition of Khaie, this drama has shattered records and earned widespread acclaim. Written by Saqlain Abbas and directed by Wajahat Hussain, despite ‘Khaie’ being surrounded by controversy around the number of episodes, audiences continue to shower it with love and praise.

What’s next for Jaan-e-Jahan and Ishq Murshid?

Jaan-e-Jahan’ and ‘Ishq Murshid’ have garnered considerable praise for their sweet romantic tales, boasting exceptional casts and marvellous production values. However, audiences are eagerly anticipating what lies ahead for these dramas.

In ‘Ishq Murshid’, viewers are eagerly awaiting the resolution of Fazal Baksh’s character, portrayed by Bilal Abbas, who has won hearts with his adorable moments.

In ‘Jaan-e-Jahan’, viewers hope for a balance of interesting scenes without excessive melodrama, culminating in a conclusion that offers something fresh and unexpected beyond the typical twists and confusions.
