It has been more than six decades that Pakistan has been carved out as an independent nation on the map of this world.

Today, with the emergence of many new television channels and competition, the making of fine Pakistani comedy plays has become very challenging yet the Pakistani television channels continue to hold their age old perfection and they are certainly producing great Pakistani comedy plays even today.
A new life has been brought to Pakistani television when Geo Network aired the drama Azar ke aeygi Baraat followed by Dolly ke Aeygi Baraat and now, Takay ke Aeygi Baraat. These are one of the most hit Pakistani comedy plays and the dialogues of different characters are almost on lips of every Pakistani in particular. The most hit character of this series is Saima Choudhary which is played by the ageless actress Bushra Ansari. Her most popular dialogue “Main Sayy-ma Chowdhary Fayslabad di desayner” enthralls the audience like anything. These series of Pakistani comedy plays has surely brought in a wave of love, inspiration and light-heartedness in the otherwise tense atmosphere all around us and the characters of these series are very well put and speak amazingly about the everyday topics of the regular households in Pakistan. Bushra Ansari is surely one of the best actresses that Pakistani television can ever have in times to come.
Apart from the Azar ke Aeygi Baraat series in Pakistani Comedy plays, another comedy play which is making its mark tremendously is Bulbulay which is aired on the ARY television network. The fine acting of Hina Dilpazeer as Momo is crazily loved by children, youngsters and elderly people alike. Her accent, the way she walks, absent-mindedness and exceptional body language and expressions surely add sparkle to the play. Moreover, the way she calls her husband “Mehmood Saab” through different names and in different tones, it is really very interesting.
Indeed, Pakistani comedy plays truly depict the essence of the talents that the people of Pakistan have. May it be the Late Moin Akhtar, Hamid Rana, Rafi Khaawar, Bushra Ansari, Salman Shahid, Sohail Ahmed or Adeel Hashmi, Faisal Qureshi, Hina Dilpazeer of today and many others, the class and perfection that Pakistani comedy plays have brought out is surely something commendable and it is even more commendable to witness that Pakistani television continues to make its mark by coming up with better and great quality work.
As Pakistani individuals, we all should work to support our television industry and bring a wave of difference through the television platform so that the world can see a better and positive side to Pakistan especially in this age of bitterness and hatred when terrorism and extremist activities are ruling the world. If a slight difference can be created just by promoting the Pakistani comedy plays then it is a very big achievement for all of us as a nation.
