The Pakistani entertainment subject is definitely peaking with very short films coming out, a large amount of whom have also gone to make international fame. However , at the core of this development lies the actual Pakistani TV drama car parts market that’s responsible for the enjoyment and socialization of many. So , shouldn’t these dramas become responsible and progressive? Seems they aren’t because this pathogens like hero culture is excessively prevalent. Here’s how:

Aye Musht-e-Khaak

Aye Musht-e-Khaak will probably be latest drama starring Crueldad Javed and Feroze Khan. It has been the talk of the village for all the wrong reasons. Often the drama shows Javed to be the “sweet” and religious partner who meets Bobby, Feroze, who is a narcissistic all. Bobby believes whoever definitely marry will fall head-over-heels in love with him.

My drama stars Danish Taimoor and he, too, is a pathogens like hero. The same trope in the wealthy businessman and a very unafraid lower-class girl. Individual scene that is beyond noxious from this drama is during the time Taimoor buys an entire bus’ ticket so he can commute alone with the girl. Where creepy is that? However , its drama chooses to show your dog as a lover who would proceed to any lengths for that love.

Prince Charming

This current ? latest short film by Sheheryar Munawar was a great treat. However , it is important to question what the film really wanted to show or change. The film also shows a toxic husband who mistreats his wife clearly going through a mental illness yet he expects her to do all his work. Sure, it doesn’t promote it. Nevertheless , does it show in some manner that these relationships must be condemned? We doubt it.

“He Hurts You Because He Likes You” Must Go

This thinking has long been the norm within our culture. Women are taught that men’s anger is just a form of protection. That their harassment is their dedication and commitment. They are taught men’s abuse and toxicity is them fighting all odds to be with them. This thinking has not only bred harassers, abusers, molesters, and rapists but it also breeds women who suffer alone.
