Shows that have left an impact
Shows come and go but there are only
few who leave a major impact on us. These Shows bring about the
charisma, the drama, the grandeur in a grand manner . The characters ,
and sets are larger than life. We as a audience see something which we
have only dreamt about. To be a part of this in real life is not
possible so sadly we have to make do with them in reel life .
To list a few shows that have created a " hulchal " in the industry and in our lives are..." the big block buster of all times which rocked the tellywood is Ekta kapoor's " kyuki Saas bhi kabhi Bahu thi " and " kahani ghar ghar ki".. These took the nation by a storm. Suddenly everyone was talking about Virani parivar and Aggarwal khandaan." Tulsi Virani and Parvati Aggarwal became
a sensation overnight . Ekta kapoor weaved the stories in such a manner
that women and even men got hooked on to it big time. These shows
became a huge success as she played with the concept of huge extended
family . This worked wonders with the audience as the importance of
family values and rituals came about strongly and strenthened the
Another show which created a wave through the industry was " Kasauti zindigi ki" where characters like Prerna and Anurag epitomized
romance and love. The story became very powerful with the entry of Mr.
Bajaj who had an magnetic aura around him.The intense love saga genre
was started by this show. Ekta kapoor marked her presence with these
shows and did a beautiful job. These shows ran for over a period of 7-8
years , which cleary differentiates them from today's shows who manages
to stretch for a period of 1 year only.
Another beautiful love story which brought about the new beginning to StarOne channel was" Dill Mill Gayye" which is a sequel to " Sanjeevini ".
It's basically a rom com with beautiful moments of love mingled in. The
channel did a wonderful job of creating romance in a hospital
backdrop. Doctors in love and with that came about the birth of the most
gorgeous couple " Armaan - Riddhima". The show created
hysteria to the point that fans started to write fan fiction about how
they wanted Armaan -Riddhima to be in their story. The show gave
upcoming artist KSG and Shilpa Anand a huge stature to remember for a
life time. The show got immense popularity and took StarOne to heights.
If we go back 2-3 decades , we would get shows like "hum log "and " Tara"
too...Tara in those times was a benchmark for women as it was female
centric..Back then, it was a huge deal to come up shows like this.
Reality show also have and will go on in future to create big dhamakas
on the channels. Be it "Kbc" or Indian idol" or Sa Re Ga Ma,
they all have rocked the country and therefore second third seasons
of these reality shows did come about.Especially reality shows like Sa
Re Ga Ma which have given undoubtedly given platform to the upcoming
artists and groomed their hidden talents.Its with this kind of reality
show any lay man can dream about doing big in life.Our play back
singers like, Sunidhi chauhan, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Goshal ,Shaan are a few popular names to begin with who have made name from these shows.
Hence ,shows whether reality or
fictional always have a good and a bad side to it.. Today's shows are
short , sweet and switch over fast to give variety to the audience,
where as shows back then would run for 7-8 years with generation
leaps. That was also an era and so is today.. Hence enjoy what the
makers give us and place them in a sweet memory box, as shows which
come and conquer do not come again...
