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.

In general , the popular mass media in print media industry are Urdu Newspapers and among them the most popular one is Jang , specially for the purpose of classified and display advertising and they claim to have largest circulation .Even the English readers prefer to look for jang ,if they need to see some ads in any specific category .
However, it does not make jang an only popular Urdu language newspaper in Pakistan, daily Express, daily nawa e waqt , khabrian , pakistan and some other are important and these are considered as second tier newspapers in Pakistan.
