The new digitalization system for trapping TRPs have not made any difference with the fans of Life OK's celebrated show Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, produced by the Traingle Film Company as the show continued to rock the ratings on the channel. 

Accordingly,the makers continue to bring in twists and interesting story tracks in a contemporary way to grab larger eye balls. 

Soon after, Ganesha and Kartikeya's track, the show will move towards another story related to Mahadev, where the show will see the entry of Raavana's grandsons, Mali and Sumali. Hence, to make justice to the character, the makers have roped veteran actor Naresh Suri, seen in Adaalat as judge and acted in many television shows, to essay the character of Sumali, the grandson of Raavana

Sumali along with his two brothers will pray to Brahma and will ask that their brotherly love would be unbreakable and no one would be able to defeat them. 

When contacted, Naresh Suri confirmed him being part of the show but was busy in the shoot. 

This particular entry is expected to telecast soon.

Triangle Film Company's mythological saga Devon Ke Dev.. Mahadev aired on Life OK is witnessing new entries one after the another. And the latest actor who will add some more drama to the on-going plot is Deepraj Rana.

Sources inform that well-known actor Deepraj Rana who has Bollywood hits like Saathiya andMangal Pandey- The Rising to his credit will essay the role of Parshuraam. With Parshuraam's entry the story behind one of the 108 names of Ganesha will be revealed. In an interesting turn of event Parshuraam who wants to meet Mahadev (Mohit Raina) will get into a fight with Ganesha as he doesn't allow Parshuraam to meet Mahadev. During this fight Ganesha will lose one of his teeth. Hence, Parshuraam will play a significant role in giving Ganesha, a new name Ekdanta. Deepraj Ran's entry will be aired next week around Thursday.

When contacted, Deepraj Rana said, "I always wanted to be associated with Devon Ke Dev... Mahadev. So I am very excited to have finally got a chance to work on this show. It's a very interesting co-incidence that I always wanted to play a role like Parshuraam since childhood and finally my dream has come true. I have already started shooting and I am looking forward to the show."

sadhil kapoor and salman khan

He is all of seven, but Sadhil Kapoor has already made a place for himself in the heart of viewers with his heartwarming portrayal of Lord Ganesha in the popular mythological show "Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev". The child actor hopes to become a bigger star than his ideal Salman Khan one day.

"I want to be an actor in future. I am a huge fan of Salman Khan and want to be a bigger star than him," Sadhil told IANS.

"I even met Salman once on the sets of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. He gave me a chocolate and autograph too," he added.

This is not the first show that Sadhil has been a part of. He was previously seen in "Chintu Chinky Aur Ek Badi Si Love Story", "Bhai Bhaiya Aur Brother !!!" and even features in Surf Excel's latest ad.

The young one is enjoying being Ganesha to the core as he has a ball on the sets.

"It is fun to play Ganesha. I play a lot on the sets with Kartikeya (Rushiraj Pawar) and Ashok Sundari (Ahsaas Chanana). We play 'pakdam-pakdai' together," said Sadhil.

The current track of the show focuses on the growing angst of Kartikeya over Ganesha, which eventually leads to a race between the two to decide who will be worshipped first.

The special episode featuring the race will be aired Sunday on Life Ok.

Sadhil also impresses with his flawless dialogue delivery. The dialogues, he says, are "difficult for me to learn as they have heavy Hindi words. Sometimes I don't understand them, but my father helps me to memorise them".

A class IV student at the Seven Square Academy, Sadhil has fans among his friends and family and says: "All my friends and family members are very happy to see me on TV."

Glad youngsters have connected with Mahadev: Nikhil

Glad youngsters have connected with Mahadev: Nikhil
Triangle Film Company's Devon Ke Dev... Mahadev seems to be touching new heights with each passing day.

The show has not only garnered impressive numbers since day one but has also managed to be the number one show on the channel ( Life OK). Recently, the show achieved a feat of completing 300 episodes.

On accomplishing this landmark Producer Nikhil Sinha says, "It feels great on turning 300 episodes old. It's an overwhelming moment. We are living up to the expectation of audiences and we will continue making the same efforts. I am thankful to the entire team as well as the channel. New characters are coming up but the focus will remain to be on Mahadev and Parvati's life as the story progresses."

With this the trend of mythological shows also seems to have caught on again. When quizzed about the reason behind this, Nikhil says, "Mythological shows always interest the audiences as Indian audiences relate with mythology and our own history. How a story is told is also very important. Audiences are intelligent they want to see something fresh and relatable."

Nikhil adds, "'Devon Ka Dev... Mahadev' clicked with masses and classes as the story of Shiva has appealed to audiences and the show is very contemporary. I also believe the perception and mind set has also changed. Initially people believed that mythological shows were mostly watched by older generation but I am happy that even younger generation has connected to the show."

In conversation with Campaign India, Ajit Thakur, general manager, Life OK, opens up on expanding the market base, targeted channel share for 2013 and more.


 

Life OK, the second Hindi GEC from Star network, completed a year's run in December 2012. Campaign India caught up with Ajit Thakur, general manager, Life OK, to understand the strategies that worked in the channel's favour and the ones that didn't. Thakur also shed light on plans for2013 and how a second GEC in a network operates. Edited excerpts:

What is the current channel share of Life OK in the Hindi GEC genre? How has it grown?

The current channel share for Life OK is 10 per cent. When Star One was transformed into Life OK, we had a 3 per cent share in the Hindi GEC market. We started off with 30 to 40 GRPs and today we hover around 120 GRPs on most weeks. In places like Uttar Pradesh and New Delhi, we garner 180 to 200 GRPs at times. Clearly, we have been among the fastest growing GECs in the country.

What were the highlights of this viewership growth phase?

First would be the take-off of Saubhagyavati Bhava. We asked people to tell us how they'd want the story to proceed and got a tremendous response from over two lakh people. And these were all paid calls.

Second was the turnaround of Devon ke Dev Mahadev. The show didn't get much response initially. We decided to treat it like it were being launched every month. And now it has become an event. The Mahakali episode was the highest viewed episode across all GECs in the last year. It registered close to 8 TVR.

'Savdhan India' would be the third highlight. It was a total experiment in the crime show genre wherein we didn't talk about police or authorities solving crimes. Instead, it shows you stories of common folk battling crime and setting a precedent for others to follow. The show opened with a 6.7 TVR.

Any specific strategies you tried in the last year that didn't work out?

When we started off, we were clear that Life OK is going to be an anti-GEC Hindi entertainment channel - in that it will have shows that are entertaining but they'll be relevant at the same time. They will have a social message at the end of it. And we were clear that we will not have anySaas-bahu series. We stuck to it but in the process we realised that some shows, which had a strong social message, were not very high on entertainment. Tum Dena Saath Mera was one such show. Some of these shows didn't deliver.

Secondly, we were slow in expanding our market base. We started in the North with UP and Delhi and got an overwhelming response. But we could have continued to expand further which didn't happen. That's going to be our agenda for this year now.

We also realised that we didn't utilise outdoor marketing initially. We intend to change that this year as well.

What does your media plan look like?

We still spend more than half of our marketing budgets on TV given its wide reach. Our online engagement is pretty strong, be it via Life OK's website, Facebook page or our Twitter account. In fact we launched online eight hours before we went live on TV. We had different music bands performing for us (at the launch), where they'd sing their respective Mahadev themed songs and we'd introduce our chief characters from different shows through the gig.

Life OK was the first to air shows without any commercial breaks. How has that worked so far?

It worked well. But as inventory grew and the channel gained momentum, we have had to change that pattern.

How different is life when you're working for a second GEC of a big network?

It's interesting to say the least. Uday (Shankar) and Sanjay (Gupta) encourage us to compete with Star Plus all the time. Our biggest ambition is to rival Star Plus, in fact. We have separate teams so there's no overlapping of any kind. We work at a good arm's length and enjoy a healthy competitive relationship. Sometimes, we compete for producers and fight to get the same show. But there's no such thing as one channel being given more importance than the other within the network.

How strong is the traction toward Life OK's Live TV service? Are there plans to enhance online viewership?

I don't think there's regular sampling happening online on our website. People do go online to watch promos and navigate what's new but chances of them watching an entire show online is highly unlikely. In that sense, the Live TV service hasn't really broken through. But that's got more to do with the internet penetration than anything else.

There are enough changes happening, and the scenario will change soon. For now, we are not looking at trying to push viewership online. But we will constantly focus on enhancing online engagement with our audience.

How have advertisers responded to the online service?

Quite positively. But that's because advertisers have their own opinion on the content. Yet, online TV at the moment is not sizable enough to become a revenue stream for us. In future, of course.

What is the channel's approach to social media, and what are the budgets like?

We are not spending a significant amount of money on social media. But we are constantly growing our fan base. Social media is critical for us in three aspects. It allows our online audience (mostly men and youngsters) to see our content, to engage with it, and most of all, it facilitates a feedback mechanism for us. I love going through all the love-hate mails/messages they send us on Facebook and Twitter. It helps you devise future strategies as well.

What should one expect from Life OK in 2013?

We plan to double our share from 10 per cent to 20 per cent. But without compromising on our core philosophy - relevant entertainment. Our shows are finite and they'd have to be replaced. We plan to launch one new show every month. We'll continue to tell new stories and if there are old classics, we'll try to tell them differently but you'll find a distinct element everywhere. Getting Madhuri Dixit as a sutradhar (narrator) was a good idea. We're planning to get another big celebrity (relevant to Life OK's proposition) who will take that role to the next level.

Life OK launches Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav
 
Star India's popular Hindi general entertainment channel, Life OK, recently announced the launch of Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav, an awareness drive to find plausible solutions to conserve river Ganga. Life OK, guided by the philosophy of 'Cherish what you have', has strived to make a real difference to people's lives in its year-long journey. Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav takes the channel's intent forward and is a step to encourage general public to make efforts for preserving their beloved Ganga.


Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav will be held in eight cities across the states of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi and West Bengal between January and May 2013. After Haridwar, it moves to Varanasi followed by New Delhi. With hopes of becoming the harbinger of change, it promises to take small differentiating steps that are essential to ensure a brighter future for Ganga.


Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav covers four modules that include the Samvaad school contact program, Mohalla door to door contact program and ghat contact program. Samvaad involves children in creative activities while educating them on river Ganga's glory. It's a platform for discussing and ideating ways to clean and save Ganga and motivate people to take action. Mohalla will engage with women on a large scale and create awareness on the cause among the masses. The ghat contact program will have a two-fold impact by involving students for a ghat cleaning programme. The Mahotsav will be concluded with an entertaining evening hosted by Manoj Tiwari and other well-known performers.


An esteemed panel consisting of Vijay Bahuguna, Chief Minister, Uttarakhand; Shrimati Amrita Rawat, Environment and Tourism Minister, Uttarakhand; and B.D. Tripathi, environmentalist and member of National Ganga River Basin Authority; will discuss pertinent issues, including dumping, pollution and other factors that impact the health of the river at the launch of Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav. Reputed thought leaders and opinion makers such as Dr. Chinmay Pandya, Pro Vice Chancellor, Dev Sanskriti University, and Gandhiwadi Purshottam Sharma, VP, Shri Ganga Sabha, will also participate in the Samvaad to deliberate on the current state of Ganga and efforts required to restore its health.


Speaking about the initiative, Ajit Thakur, GM, Life OK, said: "Mahadev Ganga Mahotsav is an awareness drive aimed at educating masses on the deteriorating condition of river Ganga. It is also a well-intentioned step to jolt them from their slumber and inspire them to do their bit for India's national river. We are delighted to have launched this initiative in Haridwar and hope that people will take responsibility and transform into agents of change. Life OK and Samvaad will set the tone of action that is required to preserve the revered Ganga. It will aim at providing a hope to the residents of Haridwar in the future their city and its lifeline Ganga. India's lifeline river Ganga continues to suffer from pollution despite efforts put in by various bodies to restore its lost health. The worsening state of the Ganga has affected millions of lives and requires firm resolve from all stakeholders to unite in their efforts to protect the river."
