TV wedding and TRPs

TV wedding and TRPs
A still from Kya Huaa Tera Vaada
How can there be a happily ever after on a soap? After all, the rifts, twists and misunderstandings fetch more TRPs! Showmakers are now coming up with shaadi mein twist formula to rake in more eyeballs. 

Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch KahaAmrit ManthanMadhubala — Ek Ishq Ek Junoon,Rab Se Sohna IsshqPavitra RishtaRishtoon Ke Bahwar Mein Uljhi Niyati, Ruk Jaana Nahin, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, Pyar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyara Pyara, Kya Huaa Tera Vaada, Kairee: Rishta Khatta Meetha, Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki, have tracks running with complicated twists.

When the sympathy factor associated with the tribulations of the protagonist lets the viewer relate to the show, the makers feel it's worth the effort. "Engagements and marriages are such occasions which get maximum eyeballs and Indian audience loves drama. Nothing can be better than creating complications during these important days," says director Ravindra Gautam.

Producer Sumeet Mittal, says, "Complications are present in real life successfully, you need to hook the audience, and that is why writers are bringing out the finer details of relationships — simple as well as complicated." Prashant Bhatt, fiction head of a GEC says, "The intensity of drama differs from real and reel life. Colors, cultures, expectations, emotions, all come under one roof during these occasions. Everyone wants to have the perfect moments, and both families that are involved make sure nothing goes wrong on such prestigious days. But with ego clashes sometimes situations change. TV shows are eye openers for those who are in love, but sacrifice their relationships for their families."

TV show makers always say that they take inspiration from real life for their shows, but does one have so many complications in real life as shown in the show? Producer Hemal Thakkar says, "Fiction has to make sense. We add more drama because a TV show is a progression of moods and feelings. Complicated relationships always make the story interesting and take it forward. The story has to be told in a way which makes the audience's desire to watch the soap, connect with it and follow it regularly." Actor Adaa Khan says, "Complications in relationships sell on TV as the viewer gets a momentary pause from their own problems and see extreme possibilities in a dramatic way."

Actor Pawan Shankar says, "Content on TV is more subtle than reality. Real life is too complicated. There are so many issues that one can't show on screen. The canvas of life is far more varied and filled with more turns and twists."

As to how much these 'complicated' twists can impact viewers, only TRP ratings will tell.

@ tanu :
thanx for sharing. and if the creatives really believe that daily soaps are inspired from real life incidents, then let me tell them one thing, " all real life stories are not complicated with people committing bigamy or extra-marital affairs ". hope they get my point .

Did any of our NBT twist or drama or complication brought higher TRP? Are we having only audiences who love drama! Something to talk about spreading negative energy around the people! I think its more to do with what is being delivered than what is being accepted! The trend has been set by the makers and they give the same! The viewers have no other choice than to accept what is being offered! Yes, I do understand that few makers try something good but fail to impress the majority of the audience! Shudn't this be more to do with the competition among the makers! Why blame the viewers and find reason saying that this is what the viewers want! I think there shud be a Norm set among the TV Soap producers and they come up with standards! Compared to movies, TV has a wider audience and so these makers can easily capture the trend! Only if they can stand the competition among the drama set trend that is already existing! The newer generation may not want the same! So shows wud require to be produced catering to different audience thus having elements within to satisfy that level! Trying to have everything in a single product may not be applicable, which might bring a big failure at a major level! Advertising and Marketing the product also makes a big difference thus bringing in the right audience to the show!
