Bub­ble com­edy

Slogan - - LETTERS -

This is with ref­er­ence to the com­edy drama se­ries named ‘Bul­bu­lay,’ which is con­sid­ered as the most suc­cess­ful sit­com with high TRPs (tele­vi­sion rat­ing points). I doubt the cur­rent stan­dards of com­edy writ­ing, where a play like Bul­bu­lay keeps hit­ting the charts de­spite a poor story, pa­thetic di­a­logue and me­diocre act­ing. Com­pared to clas­sics like Alif Noon, Taleem-e-Ba­lighan, Khawaja and Sons, and many oth­ers, Bul­bu­lay is noth­ing more than a se­ri­ous joke be­ing aired in the guise of com­edy. Its suc­cess also raises many ques­tions about the logic be­hind the ex­ist­ing rat­ing sys­tem. Da­nial Muneeb, Is­lam­abad.
