No Comparison between Waris, tanhayian and recent dramas written by novelist like umaira Ahmed. I have nothing against those novelist but this comparison is unforgiveable.
You missed Ghisi piti mohabbat and Dastaan
Waris, Tanhayan, Dhuwan, Alpha Bravo Charlie ki class in sab se oper hen bhai Ankhhen khol loo ab bhai. Comedy at its best level and in Waris and other PTV dramas are beyond today’s era of dramas.
