Don't get me wrong the concept of this show is really great!  But it made me wonder why is it that  a lot of Indian entertainment, movies especially, are copies of American films and television shows? 
 
I stopped watching Indian movies as I already knew the endings!  I had seen the American movie first. 
 
I remember watching older Indian movies and the concepts and stories were all based in India and on India.  I wanted to watch that, now I don't, unless it's a period movie like Jodha Akbhar or Laggan, which don't come that often.

Oh totally, American movies are copies from other countries as well; but Indian cinema was doing alright on its' own for a long time.  Are there really not any writers left that can create a genuine story?   For the television series, the real genuine revolve around the "saas bahu" issues (which are so exaggerated I laugh when I watch), there is so much in life that can be portrayed why are Indian televisino producers and channels so narrow in their show content?

Yeah i know wat u r talking about.. to an extent i do agree..

We all scream that there r number of saas bahu dramas n all that!!! so if we get something which is totally different, fresh n genuine i wont mind at all even if its a copy of some movie or a novel.. as long as i m getting something different, i m happy... Big smile
