Unpredictability is the forte of Pakistani dramas. At times, you get the entire package, and at times, you get a problematic storyline. For instance, in 2019, we saw a Pakistani drama, Ishq Zah e Naseeb which had an amazing cast, good acting, well-developed characters, and a great OST too. At the same time, the industry is also capable of producing Mere Paas Tum Ho which may have a great OST but the story was controversial. Moral? Never judge a book by its cover.
But how about, we rate the cover for today? Let’s look at the Pakistani drama OSTs of 2021 that struck a chord with you.
1. Hum Kahan Kay Sachay Thy
Mahira Khan starrer, Hum Kahan Kay Sachay Thy is a Pakistani drama we were looking forward to. It is based on a novel that did not show Mashal fighting with Mehreen for a guy. She makes it clear that she is not fighting for Aswad. In the drama, however, on her last day, Mashal is seen looking at Aswad’s picture longingly. They may have tried to keep the story intact but these subtle cues make Hum Kahan Kay Sachay Thy another of the run of the mill Pakistani dramas with two girls fighting over a man.
That said, Yashal Shahid did a great job for sure. Ever since its release, we have been humming the song all day long.
After Ishqiya, Shehnai is another song by Asim Azhar that has us in a trance. The song perfectly blends with the genre of the show, which is comedy. It is rare to find comedy-themed dramas that are not telefilms or Ramadan specials in the Pakistani drama industry. A new concept, ARY Digital did give its best attempt because the drama started out great. Midway, it started dragging. However, even now, if someone plays the ‘Hum Tu Hare Sub Tere Hi Agey‘ we sing with all our might, ‘Thay Dewane Teri Adaa Pe Youn‘
3. Khuda Aur Mohabbat Season 3
Two seasons under its belt, the name, Khuda Aur Mohabbat gets another story. Starring Iqra Aziz and Feroze Khan, two iconic actors, the drama is sure to be a masterpiece. Although, those who have followed it are not that excited the OST has won our hearts most definitely. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is already a star who has transcended boundaries but Nish Asher also gave a performance that people will remember for years.
We have already spoken too much about Azmaish and our reservations about it. But Nimra Mehra and Rizwan Anwer have sung a song that brought us back to the drama every time the story made us quit.
Sarmad Khoosat, a director who has a great track record, and Shaista Lodhi, the renowned morning show host; the two unite for Pardes. Amanat Ali and Sithi Saha sang the OST for Pardes that resonated with a number of families because of the idea in the story. It is based on people who go abroad and do hard labor to give a better lifestyle to their families.
Another 2021 Pakistani drama goes by the name of Fitoor. Shani Arshad and Aima Baig led their melodious voices for the creation of the song. Given how great of a singer Aima Baig is, it does not come as a surprise that the OST made it to this list.
7. Raqs e Bismil
Vicky Akbar gives the voice to a story that is different from the other stories. Of course, it has elements that show a man’s toxic love that continues because he finds himself to be genuine and continues to pursue the girl no matter how much she says no. But the OST was good enough to be on the list.
