Who doesn’t remember the time when Zindagi Gulzar Hain aired on Zindagi TV back in 2014 and for the first time Indian audience fell in love with the refreshing content of Pakistani family dramas? And not just the dramas from our neighbouring country, it has brought to us the popular shows from Turkey, South Korea, Spain, Colombia, Ukraine, Pakistan, and Brazil as well. We were relived to watch the short-run shows, instead of having to gobble up the indefinitely run serials.
But now with the rise of OTT platforms we no longer have to wait for the shows to come on TV on a set time and watch them whenever we want, exclusively on Zee5. This is especially good news since we are already five months into the Lockdown and most of us have exhausted the list of good shows to watch. This is why I have come up with 5 most popular and loved Zindagi shows you can binge watch over the weekends.
It’s biographical drama on the journey of famous and controversial Pakistani model, actress, social media celebrity and activist Qandeel Baloch whose life came to an untimely end when her brother murdered her in the name of honour.
The show obviously created a lot of controversies, but also became the most watched serial in Pakistan. That happened not only because of the fast paced, authentic production, but also because of the strong and bold performance by Saba Qamar.
- Aunn Zara
Aunn is painfully pampered by his overprotective family and wants to have some independence in his life, while Zara is the only female in an uptight army family and wants to lead a normal family life.
Sparks fly between when they come face to face and eventually they get into a marriage of convenience. Post their marriage a lot of twist and turns come into their conjugal life, like in all romantic shows, but its fresh take will make you feel poignant.
- Badi Aapa
Zubeida – the eldest daughter of the family – has a very dominating and controlling nature. This drama aka Pakistani telenovela is the story of her family’s life struggle and how they overcome the adversities.
Apart from fitting performance by the characters, the script of the show is highly gripping and relatable to all Indians.
- Baba Jani
The story follows the journey of a middle aged man who has taken care of his manipulative sisters all his life, but now wants to get married to the woman of his choice, but due to the evil plans by his sisters he faces a lot of trouble to live a life of his choice.
This is another gripping show available on the OTT platforms, but what makes it more endearing to watch because the hero of the show is not the hero because he is supposed to be. He establishes himself as a hero because despite his human flaws he always does the right thing.
- Bunty I Love You
Here is another powerful performance by Saba Qamar who plays the lead in this romance drama. This is the story of a recently widowed woman Dania who falls for Bunty – much younger than her.
She keeps sending his cues and spends a lot of money on him with the hope that he will love her and take away her loneliness. But Bunty doesn’t understand her feelings and keeps flirting with other girls. This entertaining show has already bagged a few accolades for the performance of the cast and refreshing script.
