Sam I completely agree with you on Samunder, in which Mehboob Alam again proved himself as the center of attention. Anyway, they all are classics. No “uncle Urfi” in the list. Rahein, Dhuwan, chaand girhan and few others will make in final top 20 list. I miss those times. I have watched some of these Dramas repeatedly and love them as they take me back to those old days.
A rerun of some of these on International Channels would be highly appreciated by the older as well as the present generations, and enable the Pakistani as also the Indian communities living abroad to understand each others’ cultures and ways of life which are common in many ways so that there is more cordiality and congeniality among them henceforth. YOu forgot ‘Andhera Ujala’ which definitely is another classic. I watched it in but the story and the characters are so relevant to the our present environment. Ruhi Bano and Shakeel. Perhaps dhuwan or Chand Girhan should have made it to the list instead of ainak wala Jin OMG this article brings back such fond memories. I was told that PTV does not even have print of the original version and it had to be re-shot with different cast to re-telecast.

The first of its kind, Ainak Wala Jin was a wonderful mix of real life, fantasy and science fiction. This is one ainka the oldest and greatest dramas in the history of Pakistani television.
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.
If it could inspire Millions of Indians and someone like Raj kapoor then you certainly seem someone who missed out watching it for anyone who did cant keep it off the top 3 dramas of PTV.
There were hundreds of masterpieces, that was such a great age, missing each n every moment of that It will be interesting to see viewers from Lahore, Rawalpindi, Peshawar or Quetta put forth their top 10 and rank them Inspired by AnkahiBollywood released the movie Chal Mere Bhai in with the same story line as the drama. With Laila Zuberi etc. Its all gone man. That begs the question why don’t you go out and reclaim your country?
Missing ‘Dhundh’ from the list. I saw both and the new version was nowhere close to the original in performances. Oh man, I aina a 90s kid. Same could be said of bollywood movies of the past.

Today our dramas are more of big houses, cars and luxury show-off then original acting and stories. 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. Best days of my Life.
Calling it lightweight stuff tells me you were probably never good at watching any of them. Ainak wala jinn was not worth mentioning in this list. Dr S I H Zaidi. However, it is a welcome opportunity for nostalgia. I see all this happy nostalgia and longing for the old Pakistan. The television transmission started in if I’m not mistaken hence the drama could not have been aired in Plus dastaan, zindagi gulzar hai, durr e shehwar, Pyaray afzal, mohabbat aab nahi hogi and recent dramas with religious themes such as Aik Pal and shanakht, are very much showing our ‘culture’ – whatever that is since our culture varies from province to province.
