Mere Paas Tum Ho created much drama outside the TV screen with its controversial stories and the representation of women. Not just that, but the drama writer, Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar, was also found speaking in a derogatory tone concerning women. But he still has a fan base about his previous dramas. These dramas included Hamza Ali Abbasi starrer Pyarey Afzal and Mahira Khan’s Sadqey Tumharey. But did you know that there are many more dramas written by the same writer and you probably did not know about them?
So just for you, we have assembled this list.
1. Mera Naam Yusuf Hai
Imran Abbas and Maya Ali started in this show. In the beginning, to me, it seemed a bit like ‘Khuda Aur Mohabbat.’ You know, a rich guy meets a beautiful girl from a conservative family. The girl’s father is very attentive towards the girl and any kind of na-mehram attention. The story made its name over time.
2. Zara Yaad Kar
Zara Yaad Kar starred Sana Javed, Yumna Zaidi, and Zahid Ahmed. It’s a story about a woman undecided about love. Her mother gets married, but she is not able to commit to the man. So she leaves him. Things do not work out for her, unfortunately. But would I want our youth to think that they should not have their adventures, be it love or any other kind, and adjust in their marriages even if they don’t want to? Not so much.
3. Tau Dil Ka Kia Hua
I do see a trend here. Women choosing to leave their husbands painted in a bad light. In this one, a woman leaves her husband for what she believed to be love and gets conned. But she is a bad person.
On the other hand, the man falls in love with his ex-wife’s sister. And that’s fair game…
I did love the dialogue exchange and the intricate backstories in the drama.
4. Mohabbat Tum Se Nafrat Hai
A girl falls in love with a guy. After much opposition, their wedding gets approved. But the man reads something in the girl’s diary and leaves her (ON THE WEDDING DAY). How strong is a man’s love, who is no Danish?
Some of these dramas were sure very good. But do we ignore the fact that Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has such a mentality? He can, through his dramas, influence lots of young minds of Pakistan in embracing the toxic patriarchy he enforces through his dramas.
