The race for higher ratings has ruined our television industry: Anwar Maqsood

The legendary scriptwriter, Anwar Maqsood opens about the current situation of our television industry. In a recent interview with a local news channel, Anwar Maqsood shared his writing experiences and the situations he had to face because of his writings. Anwar Maqsood has all-time hit drams like Aangan Terha and Fifty Fifty to his credit. But he left Fifty Fifty when it became a hit with the viewers as he was not given the due credit for the success of this program.  Anwar Maqsood showed his disappointment over the quality of the content of television dramas these days, especially comedy-dramas. According to Anwar Maqsood, there is not even a single writer in this whole world at the moment who is writing quality comedy content. Anwar Maqsood also mentioned that a society like Pakistan doesn’t deserve media freedom. In Pakistan, media freedom equals destruction, as the uneducated try to emulate what they see in the dramas. Anwar Maqsood expressed with sorrow that the race for higher ratings has ruined our television. The more pointless, shameless, and disrespectful you will get, the higher ratings you will have.


Higher ratings ki daur ne hamari television industry ko tabah kar dia hai: Anwar Maqsood

Legendary scriptwriter Anwar Maqsood ne hamari television industry ki maujada surat-e-haal per apnay khayalaat ka izhaar kia. Haal hi main aik local news channle ko apnay interview main Anwar Maqsood ne apnay writing ke dinon ke tajurbaat aur apni tehreer ki waja se honay walay masaail ka zikar kia. Anwar Maqsood ke credit per tareekhi kamyaad dramas jaisay Aangan Terha aur Fifty Fifty shamil hain. Lakin unhon ne FIfty Fifty chhor dia jab ke wo nazreen main bohat mashhoor tha kun ke unhain in programs ki kamyaabi ka proper credit nahi dia gya tha. Anwar Maqsood ne aj kal ke television dramas ke content aur khasoosi tor per comedy dramas ke content ki quality per mayoosi ka izhaar kia. Anwar Maqsood ke mutabiq, puri dunya main iss waqt koi aik bhi aisa writer nahi hai jo ke quality comedy content likh raha ho. Anwar Maqsood ne ye bhi kaha ke media ki azaadi Pakistan jaisi society ke lye bilkul bhi nahi hai. Pakistan main media ki azaadi tabahi ke mutradif hai, kun ke yahan per un-parh log waisay hi karana chahtay hain jaisay wo dramas main dekhtay hain. Anwar Maqsood ne bohat dukh se izhaar kia ke higher ratings ki daur ne hamaray television ko tabaah kar dia hai. Ap jitna be-maqsad, be-hooda, aur tazheek amaiz content likhain gey utna zada hi ap ko ratings milain gi.
