Pakistan Drama Industry – Entertainment or Mental Torture: The most common leisure time activity is watching television for relaxation of mind. After having a hectic day or mood pressures people usually switch on the TV; So, that they can come out of the trauma they have faced the entire day.
But, unfortunately, television is aiding in increasing the anxiety and depression whether it’s a news channel or entertainment channel. Let us talk about the drama industry of Pakistan. Pakistani drama industry is no more a cause of entertainment but mental torture.
Currently, there are so many serials that have gained higher TRPs but the saddest part is that; they are getting this rating not for cheering the viewers but for making them cry; and triggering their emotions with every new episode. These dramas are all about swindles, disrespecting elders, murders, rapes, hypocrisy, jealousy and hatred.
The most talked-about drama these days is “Balaa”. It has given extreme mental torture to its viewers. The script has shown death after death which is the cause of depression. The world is already full of tensions and aches.
A person who is personally having a bad time of life gets to watch such serials to pass time; or to forget his own grief will definitely fell into more depression. Not only Balaa but almost every drama is showing the ending like culprit commits suicide by shooting himself; or to be sentenced for a lifetime. This should be stopped !!!
Pakistan Drama Industry – Entertainment or Mental Torture
I personally believe that the drama industry should show something progressive; and relax rather than those same old tortures of hypocrisy that ends with suicide or mental sickness.
The script should have some relaxing scenes of senses of humour and harmony along with the serious story. There are many other ways to grasp the attention of people instead of mourning and plotting against characters. The writers should think over it.
