I agree... Who knows someone is reading this and may think that we actually sometimes need something better than being presently dished out to us.  Last night, I was watching Sarabhai on Star One.  It was so hilarious that I was in splits.  That again is a take off on a saas bahu thing, but it is just so hilarious that its unbelievable.  Why cant we have more of them.

Star one has got some pretty decent stuff going on now.  The Special Sqaud on Mondays is nice.  So are most of the weeklies at the 9.00 p.m. slot.

A very good topic indeed.  Thanks Flash for starting it.  The Indian serials are not at all realistic.  

Ektas's productions are the worst.  They are long and ridiculous and I am surprised to see that KSBKBT completed 1000 episodes...  

Sometimes I really wonder how the censor board (if there is any for TV) permits such nonsence.  Ekta had a marital rape scene in KSBKBT and what surprised me was except for Tulsi all the memebers of the fiamily  supported Ansh who committed the crime...  The produces should not assume the audience to be stupid.  AngryAngry

Whats even more sad is that they all claim to show traditions, culture and family values but make a mockery of it.Cry

its not only ekta serials that are really annoying... remember ek mehel ho sapno ka? MOST ANNOYING SERIAL EVER!!!!Angry It took such a long time 2 end! Many people blame it on the people that are watching the serials, but we have no other choice in U.S. We get 2 indian channels with tv serials for alot of $.

STAR ONE is the best option.

On Star One, try watching the following shows- Special Squad, Siddhant, Remix, Hotel Kingston, Sarabhai, Instant Khichdi, etc.

It's much better than Star Plus, Zee, Sony etc.

hi flash
        firstly i have to congratulate u about ur topic.really nice and interesting topic.well said dude.its true about our indian serials what u had said.
but one thing i have to say ki our mother,grand parents who nothing to do for the whole day think ki just wasting their timee in faltooo ki cheeze why not go and find out what parvati and tulsi do.i think they r right,u tell me then what else they can do.they don't have any option.

but from our piont of you if we talking about youth or teenagers then definately i m agree with u.but i think now indian television is improving.starone channel has some of the very good serials and shows in run.great indian laughter challenge,siddhanth,special squad,sarabhai vs sarabhai are some good example of good quality of serials.
but then also i don't understand how this balagi serials are still going on when we can see that people are not liking these serials now.then it means still somee majority of the public enjoying these shows.and i think thats quite fine,its upto their choice.and thats what always called generation gap.isn't it.and it will reamin same for always.right.
so division is equall.protestors and supporters both are always their for same reason and for the same topic.
so u and i we both can't change them but we can express our views and points always.

Most of the TV serials, especially produced by Ekta Kapoor start out with decent messages like family values, respect for elders, benefits of joint families, best friends for ever and Best couples like Tulsi and Mihir or OM and Parvati. But all of a sudden these producers start dragging the story with non sense twists according to their convenience. All these makers of Serials are only money minded. They play with the viewers feelings. Any time viewers try to relate the good story with real life, the serial takes a wide turn and you start thinking, this is not what I was expecting. This does not happen in real life.

Ekta Kapoor or Ajay Sinha or any other producer, Director are showing that every main character has to marry at least more than two or three times. Why? I do see this in real life that every man or woman either has to marry more thn once or have to have extra marital relationship.

If any character quits from the serial, if they cannot find the replacement, producer will either kill the character or in coma or accident etc. It TRP's not high enough, they will force the writers to change the story to get the high TRP's at any cost.

Now the rumor is that Ronit Roy has resigned Balaji Films. You will see Ekta showing a big twist in both serials to show Ronit that she can make money without him.

This is totally wrong. When we loose a family member, what rest of the family goes through, Ekta Kapoor or other makers can never understand the pain.

ur so right.. i agree wit each word!
