We want soaring, inspiring, floating-on-the-clouds-after-all-the-heartache love stories where, yeah, the two male and female leads make sacrifices for each other, for a LONG time in this case, and in the end it works out.
But its turning into a major depression fest.
That is a danger signal for the CVs, time to listen up to what your viewers are saying.
Many here are saying they didn't even get what the CV guy said on FB...so right there, you have proof you're not on the same page as your viewer, which spells doom for the show.
We want a return on our ROI. We want to be rewarded for tuning and giving you a 1/2 hr of our precious time out of our lives, and it is precious.
So, if the viewer is actually telling you their not happy with what's been written, you might like to make changes. You may think its good, but your viewer has the final authority on how they feel about the finished product. And you are selling a product, aren't you?
Look at what happened to Pavitra Rishta. The leads were never supposed to be together, marry, consummate, live together, leave alone elope. And now looks like soon the female lead will get pregnant. None of this was on the script-writers cards!
But the the viewers did a major balva because they got tired of the downward, depressing slope the show was on, and got what they wanted and now PR has better TRPs than TL, both of which are awesome shows.
Listen to your viewership, scripts can be changed, esp. on the small screen.
Give your viewer what they want before they tune out. They're the reason the TV mill runs!
Do we want depression? Nope. A crazy script where everything always works out for everyone all the time? Ah, no. We want....A well balanced script with sadness and elation mixed in all the right places and at all the right times, and you've got it made.
You've got our attention, we're telling you what we want, now its up to you to deliver. Remember, the writers should give the viewer what they want, not what the writers want...
The viewer wields the ultimate power.
well said archana we need orginal essense of the track back.actually in original story (original version)of pr the leads never seperated(thy do but not bcoz of stupid shravani like track) they changed story during shravani track which contradict from original version now they returned to bring the flavour of orginal version in their own way bcoz pr story is different from original version.
hope cv's wont go for ritesh -taani ,they will bring someother way to seprate taanu
