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.

The trends are changing and we are moving back to our roots, that is, homemade desserts. There was a time when we would dine out to soothe our sweet tooth but now, we simply go to a food forum, type dessert and find the best in town. Although food is never associated with any gender who cooks the best, we found some incredible women bakers that have been in the dessert making for a while now and you have to agree with our choice while the bring something delicious every time they put their oven mitts on. 

Here are the 4 power-packed women that are bringing the best sweets to complement your sham ki chai and coffee.

Devine Appetite

This lady Anam Malik knows how to attract customers with her yummy chocolate bars, appetizing caramel crunch cake, moist chocolate fudge cake and many more. You name it and she will make them for you. It was a treat to try her divine desserts just like the name of her bakery. Not only this, she will treat you with customized chocolates wrapped in your pictures printed on it.

Jaweria Usman

Jaweria Usman’s lotus cheesecakes are pure heaven. We don’t remember any restaurant in Lahore that served as good stuff as she makes. Even after being pogged, you will still not feel enough. Made with love and rich in cheese, she has a solution to your bad mood. Ranging from dipped in chocolate to covered with raspberry buttercream; she has got you covered.

The Meetha Cravings Co.

Bushra knows her way quite well. Her chocolate and the cream-filled jar is a great way to brighten your day. Book her for any event and she will not disappoint you. We ordered her chocolate jar which had a moist cake topped with melted caramel. The texture and taste were totally on point. Do not forget to try her yummy chocolate chip cookies whenever you order her chocolate jar.

Moreish by HT

People meet by fate, we met by Besan ka halwa. We saw this girl making Besan halwa dipped in desi ghee and garnished with cashew nuts and instantly ordered a box. To our surprise, it was the same as our Nanis used to make. It had the same taste and love spewing from each bite. This one is especially for the desi buds. If you are too occupied at your house and want to fulfill your tummy with the conventional meetha i.e kheer, halwa, etc. Henna Tassawur is your go-to person
