you have all brought up great points and I agree with a lot of your points.  I just wanted to add that there is a new show on Zee tv called "Sarrkar" which is really different, and in my opinion, a cut above the rest.  It is about politics, so if you aren't into politics much, it may not be your cup of tea.  But I'm not really into politics and i think it's great.  Instead of made up women who cry all day, it's about a strong woman who's husband (who is a CM) passes away and she becomes the new CM.  I would say if you're sick of the same storylines, then this is the show to watch.

Hello All,

You all have made very vaild points. From the Indian to American  serials all drag on but the only good serials are the Pakistani ones. Pakistani movies may be crap but the serials are just excellent and we have many examples. They don't drag and the story line is just too good.

Yes, I agree with everybody that a majority of the Indian TV Serials start off very well and eventually end up dragging and stretching! But isn't that the most serial creators' or TV company's business? They want to create a story and at the same time, try to keep it running as long as they can so they can make more money! So, I guess for most of the shows, we have to be prepared to watch some of the serials be dragged or stretched at times since that is probably one of their goals. Just my thoughts.. 

And despite all the stretching and dragging of the show at times, I still continue to watch JJKN and some other Indian serials every day!Tongue

i dont watch astitva and piya ka ghar anymore if they are going to do same with tumari disha i think i will stop watching it, i agree with Rifhat that Pakistani serials are good that way at least they do not drag and donn't change the characters as well.

I don't know if any of you have noticed it. The serials are supposed to run in 30 minute-slots (as opposed to major serials in the US which run in 1 hour-slots), but the actual serial time is only 13 minutes or less! And in that thirteen minutes they waste a minute or 2 on the so-called recaps. So you get to watch only an actual 10-12 minutes, but spend 30 minutes in front of the boob-tube, per serial. (In the US, the alternate commercial slots are as long as 2 minutes, the rest are of smaller durations, but with at least 10 minutes serial-time in between.)

The rest of the time is occupied by commercials (ads), which rakes in money for the TV channel, which in turn gets money for the serial-producer.

See how the TV moghuls and the Ektas fool the adoring public!
