@Shanti: Before I post a reply to your post, let me introduce myself as a viewer.
I watch shows that have a unique concept and then I lose my interest along the way -- as I don't have the patience to watch the story-telling quality dip by each passing day. Watch a show at a time. I don't watch show for the actors if I had, I would have seen Pyar Ki Ek Kahaani for Siddhant Karnick as his brief appearance in the show Kismat completely blew me away (Still in love with the character of Madhav Merchant). I rarely watch reality shows and if I watch, I see only the performance and not the comments or the tears.
I, however, know that the majority love the drama and then there is a group that loves watching chemistry between the leads. Indian audience loves drama and emotions, being part of the industry for some time, DC knows how it all works. But, can one really read the mind of a viewer?
DC ideas may very well backfire too. In the show, he is shown as the brain behind the MMS. It creates the news but how many will be comfortable watching the show with such a content in real at prime time with family? As majority of the viewers is women.
All said and done: fiction is not fact but then it gets its ideas from facts.
I am loving this show -- though direction and production value still have to get better.
