EFFECT OF PAKISTANI DRAMAS ON FAMILIES/MARRIAGES

 

Hello Folks!

 

Have you ever wondered how Pakistani Dramas and entertainment shapes our families/ marriages? I am sure most married people/families will second my thoughts. So let’s start.

 

Nowadays, due to the pandemic and all, the new focus is on dramas and entertainment, etc., but what are we deriving from it. There was a time when the whole family would sit together at drama time to watch their favorite dramas.

 

But now, what is being shown in the dramas is nothing like old times when all members would sit together and watch. What is our new generation learning from these dramas? How to get hold of a rich man irrespective of him being married and happy in his life and family?

 

The underlying purpose is to make him yours even if you have to turn a villain for it.

 

Another thing that is being taught is to keep a spare tyre in reserve. If one doesn’t work, change the other to enjoy the benefits of all the worlds. Virgins and non-virgins or likewise.

 

On the other hand, what are men gaining from these dramas? Only nonsense and applying that nonsense to their wives. The characters in the dramas are primarily fictional. Very few might be based on reality.

 

This, however, does not give one the privilege to treat their better halves on the same level. And it is simply unjust to do such a thing.https://www.sabahataamir.com/why-modern-marriages-fail/

 

Another effect on marriages is regarding the culture that is being portrayed in these dramas. Our society is a cultural society. How open is the husband toward a wife having university or college friends or let alone office colleagues? Their thinking will always remain the same, no matter how cultured or educated they become.

 

A wife has the heart to accept the man with all his flaws without saying a word but the man does not have the heart to accept one small mistake of a woman and may always be in search of catching her on the wrong foot.

 

Then, the zero-sized figures in the form of models are truly unrealistic. Even if one getting married is a zero-sized barbie, there is no guarantee she will remain the same after marriage. One goes through a lot of hormonal changes and can become a bharbie (heavy) doll in no time.

 

The same is the case with men. When they will have tasty foods to eat all year through, how lean can they remain? They too might turn into a potato. But potatoes are fine with models and bharbie dolls are not.

 

Similarly, not to mention the dressing. Seriously, can a mediocre class afford a branded dress if the monthly expenditure of a household is 10,000 rupees? Who is the entertainment industry fooling?

 

Not to mention the makeup which changes with every scene. In a poor household who can afford a full puck up face with the latest products.

 

The entertainment industry is a sadist in disguise who enjoy at the expense of spoiling marriages through their unrealistic portrayal of Pakistani society and its cultural values.

 

If you want to see a real Pakistani married couple, visit your next-door neighbor or any family you know. You will find the real drama going on in their lives and believe me, it’s no entertainment. Its reality. Think about it.

 

Until next time stay safe and healthy.

  1. The theme and content of Pakistani dramas nowadays have done more harm than good to our entrenched patriarchal societal patterns. It is believed that since most of the directors in Pakistan are male, they come up with the ideas that promote a male chauvinistic society. In almost all of our dramas, female characters are painted as innocent, submissive, quite, shy and least talkative. Contrary to that, males are portrayed as spoiled, rich boys having illicit relationships but finally ending up getting married to a pious lady. The character of Zaroon (zindagi gulzar hai) and Altamash (Ana) who repeatedly says “mujhe larkion ki kami nahi ha” (I’m not short of girls), endorse and provide impetus to this absurd idea in the society. Taking inspiration from such characters, boys take pride in hanging out with girls, going to clubs, partying and finally getting married to a pious woman; a homemaker who would spend her whole life life loving and caring her husband.
    It is noteworthy that, on one hand, dramas are painting happy endings for fun loving and ambitious guys, while on the other hand depicting the gloomy picture of a girl who either speaks up for her rights, or dares to choose her own life partner and resists against her family to go on a pursuit for a career. These female characters in dramas face dejection and in the end they would give up their ambitions and lead their whole lives as perfect housewives and caring mothers Happy Endings.

    1. Thank you for your feedback. I second your thoughts on the subject and agree that many times both hands are needed for clapping and only one person is not responsible for making things worse for the other. But the stereotypes being portrayed in the industries too are giving a very wrong impression altogether. Keep pouring your thoughts and ideas as well as your suggestions.

      Regards,

      Sabahat.
