The Pakistani Television was a restricted medium since the regime of General Pervaiz Musharaf. In his regime, the television industry boomed and enjoyed freedom of speech. Many news channels got their license during this time including Geo News and ARY as well. In the last two years of his tenure, thme edia went under certain restriction and soon, the protests from civil society and political parties joined hands for this matter.

Currently there are 22 news channels working under PEMRA. Apart from news, news channels are known for their current affair shows as well. These shows are responsible for a channel’s TRP. The ever changing political scenario of Pakistan has led to vast variety of political talk shows. For a nation like us, the talk shows are a source of entertainment. We are not only informed about the current situation of Pakistan but also views from the analysts. Every day with a new topic is discussed in talk shows and the anchors become a voice of their audience. Few talk shows are also providing call-in facilities where audience from home takes part.

The overall situation of Pakistan is spiced by few talk shows. They increase negativity in the minds of people about their future and theirpakistani talk shows country.  No doubt, these political talk shows can be held responsible for breaking the country as one of many factors. Many people think that it’s a huge conspiracy that anti government agents and organizations or even political parties give money to a specific anchor or show or even channel to talk against the state.In a country like Pakistan where the media has become a powerful source, if all these people work together in the betterment of this country, it will be very helpful. Being powerful in this industry does not mean that you do not have responsibility on your shoulder. You are responsible for disseminating a positive message amongst masses. Power must be used fairly if one has the choice to become nation’s voice. Rather than imposing your view on audience, it is important to create awareness about the issue. Talk shows should not spice up the information and let the common man decide on issues related to Pakistan.

The Shortcomings of FM Channels in Pakistan

Why Radio needs attention?

Radio has been a major source in media of Pakistan. The role it has played when Television was not present is appraisable. As soon as black and white television came to Pakistan, the radio’s role went out of focus in 1964. It took many years for the people in villages and small town to become audience of Television. Their source of entertainment was radio and FM channels. Technology and latest satellite versions helped the radio to reach the audience. There was tremendous increase in the listeners of the radio overall.

The role of radio channels specifically FM Channels has been awareness and source of information. With better coverage at less cost, the FM channels beat other forms of media in this. In the past few years, there is no focus on the development of FM channels. The role of this important has been overlooked and needs utmost attention at the moment.

When talking about shortcomings of FM Channels, the major concern is content being on aired. The majority of content is Indian Content. Just like, we have revived our Drama Industry that was under influence of India years ago, we now restoration of our radio industry as well. There should be a proper check and balance on it. Our RJs want the audience to be patriotic for this country but the content they are airing is on the opposite side.

fm channels in pakistanCurrently there are 34 FM Channels working under Radio Pakistan. There are few channels that have coverage in specific cities of Pakistan at the same time while few have International Coverage as well. It is made sure that patterns of the shows attract the youth of Pakistan majorly and they can participate via calls in the shows and connect with their favorite RJ. Recently, few universities have also been awarded license for radio broadcast for their campus.

With such vast network of transmission, it is important that shortcomings of FM Channels in Pakistan should be overcome. Take full advantage of this coverage and let radio show its power!

Effect of Talk Shows in Pakistan

pakistani talk showss

Political Talk shows have gotten to be very prominent in Pakistan. They have offered climb to mindfulness and in spite of the fact that it has not helped much in changing the political scenario of the nation however it’s too soon to judge its effect on political scene too. All the more over the commitment of the Talk indicates on numerous essential issues can’t be overlooked. In any case these television shows themselves are getting to be “mafias” in spite of the fact that it’s a hard word to utilize, however it’s the truth. They have enormous an effect in making a clamor on the scene about any issue or occupying the general population’s consideration from any basic issue. So it’s vital to know the inclinations of the political grapple so we don’t acknowledge all that they say yet apply our own sound judgment and understanding to the issues and the host from which foundation he is impending.

Each individual has some alliance and predisposition in him/her. Be that as it may the best individual is the people who keeps his predisposition out of contention & exchange and chats on legitimacy with rationale and truths & figures and listen without prejudging and pre-labeling anybody and any contention.

Among many political talk shows, there are few that are extremely popular. Let’s take an example of Talat Hussain who has recently joined Geo Network after doing successful talk show “News Night with Talat Hussain.” With an unbiased approach as a journalist, Talat Hussain has a point of view of a nationalist. All guests are given chance to speak about their stance over the matter rather than host imposing his own ideas and thoughts on the show.

Talk shows in Pakistan are informative and the content broadcasted in well connected with facts and figures.

Is Pakistani Media presenting a true Reflection of our Society?

pakistan media and its role in society

Defined role of media for the society betterment

In a society like Pakistan where there is a variety of media working inside including print, electronic and social media that is still at a very initial stage. Electronic Media has a vast target audience because the person listening to the radio or watching TV does not have to be a literate person. The print media on the other hand needs the audience to be literate enough to read the newspaper and magazine text. Since the literacy rate is not high in Pakistan, the Pakistan Media especially Electronic Media can be titled as a true reflection of our society. Electronic media has its impact on society-changing value system in Pakistan as well.pakistan media and its role in society

In the past few years when Pakistani Media has its restriction, the impact was not visible enough. But today, Electronic Media has freedom that has powerful affect on the audience. With the power to shape up the opinions and lifestyles of the masses, the media has become a mirror image of our culture and social norms. What makes a society? Well, beliefs, civilization institutions and aesthetics all together make up a society. Media being an influential factor in our society, the affect is suspected. In short, media is an influential body in society.

The effect of Media in society brings out better things overall. For example, the easy flow of information and education are not possible without media’s influential factor. The media has played an important role in social developments in Pakistan like racism, gender bias, poverty and awareness on peace.

Apart from this, one cannot deny that media is a reflection of our society. But the role of media is a lot more than this. It has to put limelight on certain issues that need attention and sensationalize and exaggerate accordingly. With the tremendous growth in the media, Pakistani Media is now a fourth pillar of the state. It is an agent to change but in which direction the change will come this varies.

Impacts of Modernism in Pakistani Dramas

modernism in pakistani dramas 2Modernism has not touched West only, its impacts are visible in East as well. Anything new in our society and lives is considered modern.  Our old culture is replaced with modernism and same happens with customs and the overall beliefs of the society. Modernism has touched every industry just like technology.

Media has also modernized in its own way. From depending exclusively on Print Media and now 24/7 dependence on Electronic Media is a form of modernism

.Media is considered as the most important element in spreading current aspects and traditions among the individuals all over the World. In Pakistan, media is exceptionally critical so as to advance Modernization by creating Western depiction of society and the characters.

In Pakistan Drama is an imperative zone in the field of media. Pakistani dramatizations are going to be prominent among youth; you can say it’s a reflection of Pakistan in today’s date. People talk about dramas in their daily conversations at offices, school or college everybody seems to be interested in the Pakistani dramas. Ever since the privatization of tv channels, the concept of dramas have changed in Pakistan. From using modern techniques in production and direction of dramas, modernism has touched our actors through clothes, acting and language. Modernism has made our dramas popular amongst us.

modernism in pakistani dramas 2The majority of Pakistani dramas are about feminism. They are portrayed as liberal human beings who are not oppresses and submissive. But on the other side, the content portrayed in our Pakistani dramas is not related to religion. There is a loss of religious values in our dramas that is an important point to consider for the youth of Pakistan.

The major drama channels include Urdu 1, ARY, Hum TV, Geo Entertainment . All these are true example of modernism that are influenced by Western Culture and try to compete with the neighboring drama industry. In the aim to win this race, we are losing our cultural, religious and social responsibility by showing modern content on air. Glamour, on screen romance and modern topics shown in the drama content are a true example of modernism. Also western dresses and physical contact with the opposite gender actors have tried to modernize our society and can be considered as an initial step.

Pakistani Theatre at its revival

The Pakistani Entertainment Industry has been trying hard to get up from its fall since last few years. Looking at the art’s footprint in thepakistani theater history of Pakistan, you will see that there were two forums for such activities. One was street performance and other one was formal style mostly practiced in the educational institutes. In 1980’s era in Zia’s reign, the NGO’s were given permission to create awareness through theatre performances.

Lahore and Karachi were two main hubs for such art performances. Lahore’s performances were more of hilarious since the residents had command over Urdu as well Punjabi language. Being a bilingual city, the city enjoyed a lot more! On the other hand, Karachi owns communities of Parsi and Christian residents that enjoyed English plays as well Gujrati. The overall flavor of theatre industry in Karachi was western.

With a lot of potential, Pakistani Theatre Industry has created decent projects in the past and got appreciation from all across the world. With great performers like Umer Shareef and Moin Akhtar, the stage dramas were being directed to the vulgar side. With no story portrayed on stage, women added vulgar dance elements and became a source of an entertainment.

pakistani theaterWith a lot of change, the stage dramas became an entertainment to a certain class and the concept of family entertainment totally vanished.  This door of entertainment closed its door for most of the people of Pakistan and lead to indecent activities later.

Last year, the well known writers of Pakistan Imrana Maqsood and Amra Alam played their roles to bring back the audience into the theatres again with their drama “Dhani”. Produced by Shan, 2 famous actresses Sanam Saeed and Sarwat Gillani led the story of Dhani. The show lasted for almost 15 days in Arts Council Karachi with jam packed audience. The revival of our theatre industry is only possible through acting, costume, story, props and how the stage space is used for the performance.
