Like I said, fictions basically are stories. It only depends one the viewer's perspectives. A person with a sensible disposition who seeks meaning in everything would call Barfi the best movie of this year. On the other hand if someone is everything Cheesy and seeks glamour and grandeur in their stories, Student of the Year will be their pick. Neither can be called 'story-less' because movies cannot be made without a story. But then since I belong to the first category, I simply cannot get myself to even watch Student of the Year because it's not the kind of movie I'd watch. (:
Similarly, there's a reason why Hindi soap operas are called 'Saas Bahu Dramas' - every story for a LONG time has been directly or indirectly inspired by Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Then came the 'Youth Based Shows' who were all at the basic level of em feeding you with an AR-style of romance and that's it. Eye-locks and flying dupattas and secret passages, y'know?So I will call them two stories for like 200 different shows. But Qubool Hai seems like an integration of both these kinds in moderation to me. For now it is unique, and hopefully may not succumb to mainstream TRP issues. Because story or not, as long as they've got KSG, TRP never gets affected.
I must say you have said all what I wished to write here but didn't.
You are so correct in saying all youth based shows following our beloved AR's style romance..
Similarly Kyunki is an inspiration for all saas bahu dramas.By the way I myself watched Kyunki for a good amount of time but slowly drifted away by the time serial ended.
Qubool Hai surely has got an entirely different concept and has definitely a few things that have never been previously shown on Indian television before.
Absolutely correct.As long as KSG is there in the show,serial will continue to gain trps hopefully.
I simply wish that Qubool hai may not get ruined ever in future coz of external factors like trps,channel pressures etc etc.
But then again we have to say that Serials do have stories and the story writer award must be incorporated in ITA.
Regarding the movies,I could not get time to watch either of the 2 movies you have mentioned but I can understand very well what you are trying to say.
Your posts are always wonderful to read dear.
