The impact of Pakistani dramas on our society can obviously be found through the change in mindsets of general public. As the media has progressed immensely in the past decade in our country, it has brought with it much negativity to affect the innocent minds of our people especially the young generation.
This mobile documentary reflects the opinion of different people belonging to different age groups on the recent dramas that are shown on our televisions. Drama is a form of entertainment which is said to have the maximum viewership in Pakistan. The dramas telecasted in past were a trademark of the Pakistani media and they had their coverage not only in Pakistan but with their popularity, surrounding regions of Pakistan had also a great fan-following of Pakistani dramas.
Unfortunately, as the new trends are introduced in media, much of them have resulted in producing a sense of negativity and depression amongst Pakistanis. The dramas are mostly showing a different version of life whereby rich class is seen dominating every serial. Expensive cars, grand, luxury houses, trendy, designer outfits and breathtakingly beautiful interior produces a sense of inferiority complex in the middle and lower classes.
The typical Saas, Bahoo soaps influenced by Indian media, play their part in developing resentment, jealousy and disrespect among the Pakistani females. This pattern is gradually poisoning our society and it is also leading to increasing number of misunderstandings, conflicts and clashes between relatives.
The males are usually portrayed as the dominant decision makers and thus the male members of our society are considering themselves superior. Apart from all this, all the glitter and glamour of these Pakistani dramas do not reflect any modesty which is a trait of major proportion of our population.
The responsibility lies on government, producers, directors and actors to stop promoting this culture of wealth and pomp in our society and bring forth the real qualities of Pakistani society.
