5 Dramas that have Changed the Dynamics of the Entertainment Industry with Powerful Story-lines and Deep-Seated Lessons

Published

on

After having a long trail of stories on our watch-list, we have got 5 dramas that achieved the limelight by using acting as a strapping tool to spread a positive and strong message and successfully stole the hearts with their unique plot and powerful story-lines.

 

Cheekh

Being the favorite show in the week, with its impeccable cast, Cheekh has rightly posited the message of women empowerment, women dignity and importance of truth in the society. Saba Qamar and Bilal Abbas’s acting skills have put all of us in complete awe. The drama has got the potential to fight with the little demons that are silently eating up our society.

 

Inkaar

Inkaar has shown the real face of power in our society. How many Hajras get buried under the influence of strong men without getting justice from the most sacred doors that we call “Palais De Justice” I.e. our courtrooms. Yumna Zaidi left everyone spellbound with her fine acting and how she absorbed herself in Hajra’s character is nothing but plainly commendable. According to Yumna Zaidi, Khadija’s case of stabbing was used as an inspiration for this drama.

 

Khaas

Sanam Baloch has always come back with a strong narration and even a stronger character. We have never seen her bow down in front of the patriarchal system in any of her dramas be it Khaas, Teri Razza or Kankar. She has always given a message through her characters that led many minds to change their perspectives towards the loopholes in our relationships in general. Khaas deals with the deep rooted patriarchy in our society and how problematic is the sense of superiority in one gender that makes it difficult for the other gender to survive without having any complexities in their normal life.

 

Hasad

Arij fatyma has been doing roles of antagonists with an utter perfection. The leading lady always makes it to the list of favorites with her charm and inviolable aura. Refinement has always been the main element in her character and acting skills. Hasad caters to the most discussed topic in women oriented groups on Facebook as well as conversations in general. How bad is the evil eye, how important has it become to hide happiness even from the closest people and how easily the element of “jealousy” can affect our normal life and turn it into a nightmare.

 

Anaa

The stupendously good-looking cast of Anaa has definitely made us fallen in love with the story and the diegesis. The plot revolves around an elite family being caught up in their egos and fighting for themselves on the cost of the happiness and consent of their own family. The drama has rightly been named after the word “Anaa” as the whole game is about power, selfishness and self psyche. Apparently, the drama shows each character living their life according to their own terms but, in actual, this puts forward the message how the manifestation of fragile egos that we all are surrounded by can make us suffer in a long run.

Published

on

Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.

Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:

 

  1. Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life

 

Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!

 

  1. Don’t wait, just take the first step

 

The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.

 

  1. Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely

 

The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”

 

  1. Respect the competition

 

Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.

 

  1. Change is important

Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
