Here we will discuss the success of the Turkish drama series, and see ” Why are Turkish dramas more successful than Pakistani dramas”. Let’s start with the Pakistani drama industry. It seems that the Pakistani Drama industry running out of New content. We have seen that Pakistani TV production particularly PTV in the 1990s produced much comprehensive and appreciable content. Several artists, producers, and directors ruled over the Pakistani production in that era. But now we believe that Pakistani production running out of sensible scriptwriters and directors. But it is still better than Indian content.
Pakistani TV broadcasted many famous dramas like, Khuda ke Basti, Dhoop kinaaray, parchaiyain, Anik wala Jin, Alpha Bravo Charile , Dhuwwan , Dastaan, and most Recent Hit were Khaani & Mere pas Tum ho.
In the 1990s where the Pakistani Drama series was highly demanded. The only Dramas that kept PTV ahead. Even there was a time when Pakistani television PTV on decline. It’s the sheer carelessness that destroyed the PTV.
As a government institution- PTV’s biggest strength was its biggest weakness. At a time when audiences were demanding more color on their screens than standard content, PTV was disappointing the audience by not keeping up with the changing times. They stick to traditional sets and contents until they are considered obsolete and give viewers more reason to switch. PTV’s screens remained in the 1980s as its competitors entered the digital age.
What TV dramas have achieved today would not have been possible without PTV. The world has moved on, embraced technological advances, and is eyeing international platforms such as YouTube, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. Making up for the lost time is a chore for PTV and other Pakistani TV channels, but there’s probably a lesson to be learned from it: once again, to make room for yourself, it’s best to follow the steps of private channels.
