Which brings me to the million-episode question: even when the new serials are not saas-bahu dramas, why aren't they rocking our TV sets? A possible answer is the very format of the daily soap. To shoot and edit and package one episode every day, five days a week, is a tough call. Production houses seem to have tackled this by sticking to a cookie cutter story-telling style. To give just one example: the excruciatingly slow pace of most serials. (The rationale seems to be to shoot less, then stretch the few scenes as much as possible. That's why a lot of the time, nothing actually happens in an episode. Directors get around this lack of forward movement by seeking to build a couple of 'moments' in every episode. But that's not enough, especially if the moments are not arresting enough).
Someone needs to throw away the cookie cutter. Quickly.
