A few of my favourite things...(I)

I don't understand why Pakistanis (and also we Indians) waste time watching Indian TV serials, especially those being made in the here-and-now. A couple of months ago, I decided to see some dramas written by the famous Haseena Moin, and like everyone else, concluded that she was fantastic and had no match in India. 

A list of some of my favourites:

Parchaiyyan
Dhoop Kinarey
Ankahi
Tanhaiyyan
Padosi

  2. They're doing a remake of Dhoop Kinare on an Indian channel right now... See how badly they've messed it up! Me thinks its the "daily" phenomenon that has ruined Indian serials.... A story can hardly stay very good beyond a hundred episodes (and hundred is the uppermpost limit)...These days they make serials with the intention of making it run for a couple of years with 4 episodes a week... So well, you know where it is heading from the word GO

  3. Yup! Kuch toh log kahenge is the name of the Indian 'Dhoop Kinarey'. It was fun to watch earlier. Now, it's a BIG BORE. Would love to watch the original though

  5. I can name at least one great Indian tv serial Subarnalata.It a bengali serial based on a classic novel by Padmashree Ashapurna Devi and the lead role is played by Ananya Chaterjee ,a national award winning actress.
    I think that Ashapurna Devi is certainly a good match for Haseena Moin.
