And the biggest joke we Indians are actually suffering from variety of problems like, Job tensions/politics, client deadlines, traffic problems loan installments, school/college admissions,politics,sports competition, ragging, racism , property matters, health problems, corruption problems,water problems(and perhaps marriage problem)... All these problems continue to haunt everybody(and that is life is not it?). Of course we are not so creative where we can show a serial on water problem(that class is not there with us, at least currently ), but I am sure we can surely get entertained by showing serials whose central theme is not only marriage , and the solutions provided would not only be entertaining but would help society to grow in general. But that will need lot of creativity and energy, and will not come soon until the class of audience matures(and so the market demand!). If we see Tv serials from developed countries we see lot many interesting ideas, shown creatively. We do not want to improve?. I do not believe. Please give us serials with fresh ideas. And we can surely do that as we are also world class people in all fields. In past we see few people have tried new ideas, but they had lost the thread...
I appreciate your views, to name a few i think Asambhav, Anubandh, Lajja were not revolving around marraiges. Except ELDG, all the serials had suspicion, love-triangle, extra-marital, and kat-karasthana as essential ingredients. OMZ looked promising initially, but lost its way and went typical sas-bahu drama pattern rather than focusing on ramabai's social work.
