Heey, guys this is probably my first topic here ever..
 
I had always wonder why and i wanted to open a topic and see what others mean about it...
 
So i'm a bit confused or curious u can say... We all watch some kind of India television like serials... then i mean any serial.. And it happens in indian television that if a serial has  low TRP the show will shut down or be replaced and i've seen it happening with lots of serial... But theres notthing like that in pakistan ( & I'm extemely happy for that)... But what i'm wondering why do you think it's like that? Maybe Inda makes too many serials or something.. Do tell ur views...Big smile
 
 
 
Note: I'm not comparing the two countries or anything... I'm just a bit curious to know why it happnes there and not in Pak... Though i would like it to stay like that....Smile and please let this be a healthy discussion....

Heyy Laiba Smile
Welcome to the forum...
Well, the biggest difference is ecsapism and realism!... our previous DOTW... pakistani serials  are mostly extremely very close to reality... whether they show an elite class... lower middle class or Lower class people and/or families!
I think, Indian serials are tooooo fictitious... and people over there like it so they get TRPs... bt then.. yet again... same old stories... i mean have u ever seen a drama's story so relatable and same/similar in paki serials????? HARDLY any!
whereas most indian serials [not talking about all or youthbased...] they have the typical saas bahu story... and the girl/boy either of them has to be extremely rich... son/daughter of a HUGE HUGE industrialist... and the girl is poor... or the guy has to be poor... they have to get married forcefully... due 2 sumthing... or if theres a love marriage... they ought to get separated in the near future and we have to be ready for that...
i hardly hardly watch any indian serial now.. unlike previouslyy ... i just watch a few reality shows... thats it! LOL
Hope u gt my point =)

Agree with AfridiMalik..and one other point which I'd mention is that Pakistani serials are limited..they start off really well and end right when they should unlike the Indian shows where just to increase the number of episodes the story or the track is changed. All of them start off as if its a new story and at first some if them do have good stories but again the problem with the number of episodes ! After a year or so if you watch the same show it'd have different characters and a different story from what it started out to be..If only those serials would finish on time then they'd be better to watch as well..I simply hate this trend in India of a drama stretching up to 4, 5 years !

Hey,

Thanks... Sorry i missed that... i just noticed this forum... I thought there were no section like this on I-F...Tongue

That's a act, and happy it's like that... Well thats true as u , mention it... i can't name one serial based on realism...Confused Well i think that clears  the confusion...Big smile

Yup... Even that one serial who resembled Tahir-e-Lahooti aka Pratigya it turned totally into a saas-bahu serial... (even though i don't watch it) Ouch

Yup i get it... thanks for clearing some of the confusion...LOLYup.... i don't watch any indianserial either... I did watch a youth based show but it ended...and whats let is Saas-Bahu dramas...Thumbs Down But i do watch Jhalak Dikla Jha... but on Hum tv...

Well i do agree Aliza...  I think thats the biggest reason isn't it? I'm so happy that does not happen in Pakistan... In indian serials if a show runs 2 yrs they often they  change the protagonist...

Pak dramas are doing very well.. But now pak is following behind... Like TPM it has been on air for along time now right...

With all the hype from some members on IF for Indian soaps I went off and watched a few episodes on NDTV imagine. My outcome to it all is that Indian dramas are hella sucky. No touch to relaity with their storylines, the women sleep and eat with make up, always dolled up with fancy sarees. Anyhow, I went back to watching Pakistani soaps, right now Rani beti raj karegi.

basically, pakistani dramas (most of them) are made with a spesific number of episodes in mind. They are suppose to tell a story from beginning to an end. They don't change the story midway just for the trps or to drag it. The ending is already decided, most of the dramas have already completed filming when they come on air and the actors have moved on to new projects.
