Tum Yaad Aye was the only good drama Big Bang Productions had to its credit this year. Tum Yaad Aye was primarily a story relationships and the beauty of this drama lied in the fact that the writer did not rely on unrealistic or over-dramatic twists and turns to keep the viewers engaged. Another aspect of this drama which made it a must-watch was the fact that all the characters in the story were beautifully etched-out and while their relationship with each other was rather complicated at times but the emotional connection between them always overshadowed these complications. Zainy’s character wasn’t anywhere near perfect but it was appealing in its own way. Viewers got a chance to see a heroine who wasn’t holier-than-thou but her character made perfect sense. Agha Ali and Seher Afzal played their roles exceptionally well and the chemistry between these actors made their scenes a treat to watch. Sania Saeed, Erum Akhtar, Nadeem Baig and Moomal Khalid gave some very steady and impressive performances, making this drama one of the best ones of this season. Unpredictable, emotional, well-thought-out and brilliantly directed, Tum Yaad Aye truly deserves to be in this list.
