There are many elements to creating a successful socially conscious running serials which can be recognized for an award through creative writing. It requires a good on screen characters, believable story line, dedicated writers, supportive producers and most importantly an audience who will tune into the next episode. If all these elements come together a story can be a real catalyst for social change and can be recognized for an award.
I believe a drama is a imitation of a human action that has a beginning, a middle, and an end, where as serials belong to a a separate genre cause of an indefinitely expandable middle.
If anything ITA should have a separate category for soap opera but not story writing. </font>
Very well written Aarya!!
I agree with you on most of the things youhave said about the serials and their stories.
We do have socially conscious serials like Balik Vadhu, Pratigya which have consistently doing well because of the strong storyline only.
But I think I would disagree with you on the point of expandable middle in relation to serials.There are serials who do end early as well.Moreover, a serial always ends with the point from where it has begun( With a few exceptions of K-serials like Kyunki).For instance,Maryada ended on a very good note and so did DMG finally in the end.
So, I think no matter what twists and turns happen in serials,serials always have their focus on the story of the main leads and eventually keep the audience glued to them till the end.In the past we have seen some really beautiful serials which have created magic and people still adore them.
So according to me serials, should have the best story writer award.
