I'm not saying it's useless Anku, as even I love watching mythos than any other shows if they're good, but when it comes to the same epic, it gets repetitive seeing it onscreen just with different actors. Plus, I believe that if Ramayan ever came from a different production house, they have full right to make it but coming from the same production house as Sagars, it most definitely is a money making device. The Sagars have two Ramaysn which became a hit, so they don't need another one. They have one for the older generation and one for newer generation, so tell me what purpose is this new Ramayan going to serve? They lost money because of DBSK, so they're doing Ramayan to gain it back. As for fans, it's not necessary that it wont gain new fans. It doesnt matter if Imagine's fans old Ramayana's fans don't watch it which also I cant say for 100% cause I don't know these 1000s of fans personally. IF doesnt constitute all the ppl in India. Plus, people who are saying they wont watch are more of Gurmeet fans rather than Ramayana fans. Ends the story right there. Not necessarily. Some fans won't watch because they're satisfied with what's already been made, and that's because of their love for the epic, not just the actors. If people don't watch it, they're justified because just because we're fans of Ramayan doesn't mean we have to watch every single depiction made on it.
Correct story is hardly the recipe/formula for making a mytho series hit in today's time Jaanu. If that was the case, LO's Mahadev show wouldn't be such a massive hit. I don't necessarily agree with it, because complete fictional stories like Mahavir Hanuman, Dwarkadheesh, and Jai Jai Jai Bajrangbali have not become hits. People do need the correct story even if it has taken some liberties. The reason ASR, JSK, and Mahadev have become hits is that while they have taken creative liberties in some parts, majority of what they showed is still the true story. Compare that with other mythos which have become total flops. The flops had 5% truth and 95% fiction, and viewers don't want that. Moreover, Mahadev isn't such a bad show now. Yes they took some creative liberties during the Sati phase, but Parvathi phase is being shown more accurate so as you can expect, TRPs have shot up from before. And I am not going to judge the new Ramayana yet and call it money-making device etc. I want to see it first and then decide. I'm not going to judge the new Ramayan without seeing it either. I have nothing against the new Ramayan and may see it if I have time, but I am going to judge the Sagars by what I've understood about them. They're money hungry people, you can't deny that. Anyway, like many others I'm satisfied with RSR and ASR because one was RCM-oriented and one Valmiki-oriented, but if this new Ramayan teaches me something new which neither of the previous ones has covered, then I will be happy. Although, I do not prefer mytho shows being made at all these days cause ppl hardly research but if there is one being made then I want to see then judge.
And anyways, my comment wasn't even at the new Ramayana as much as it was at being aghast how people can say that they have accept GurMina as Ram-Sita. Like W*Fish much? GurMina just played the ROLES. They're not Ram Sita. That angered me a lot. And GurMina come nowhere close to Arun-Deepika ji yet they were accepted so new ones should be given a chance as well. It's that simple. I love both Arun-Deepika and Gurmina as Ram-Sita, but if one prefers one over the other I don't think we have the right to dispute it. Actually, I don't think either couple has done 100% justice to the couple because they are Gods and no one can portray the Gods realistically. Anyway, I don't think any of the commenters in that article have "accepted" Gurmina as Ram-Sita. Everyone knows they're actors, and most people who commented there are Geet and Punar Vivah fans who are commenting just for the sake of bringing Gurmeet's ranking up. They don't really care about the new Ramayan, and neither have they accepted him as Ramji. No one is that stupid to accept actors as Gods, but sometimes their comments may seem like that because they're obssesed with the actors themselves.
