Nice post!! Good analysis in view of depletion in trps. Some desperate measures need be taken immediately to save the show.
There has been lot much talked & discussed about baby track. So, I am not jumping into those detaiils Harshalji. But, I admit that they cannot stretch this 2 yr.s wait issue till long -- at some point they will have to deal with baby issue for sure. And yup, CVs have totally failed in introducing/handling subplots in the show. They introduced Ahana & Amar but kidnapping track was a huge fiasco because they didnt handle it properly. BKM track needs a closure, CS ki shaadi could be a parallel track providing comical relief. BB's illness is a good emotional track & ppl love his character. So, viewers will be intrigued by his illness track. But they need to promote this track like 'What will be BB's decision about surgery'. Many loyal viewers quit the show with khushi track, they need to be informed about this track. FS was also good but was not promoted at all.
As far as TRPs are concerned, I believe no major twist in story, late timeslot & no promos/marketing is affecting the ratings. However, acco. to me, trp meter itself is a highly questionable metric for measuring any show's popularity but in my opinion khushi track repelled the viewers away the most. Ppl could not connect to her character at all; there was no sympathy for her due to her OTT portrayal. 99% viewers were not interested in seeing her in AshNi lives and what happens to her -- Her mama-mami were torturing her or not--nobody was interested in all that. We were not given KC celebration like sweet, emotions filled episodes too & just to keep that disgusting character khushi in the show, they made Anji infertile and Ranji had to adopt khushi
If RanJi had their own baby, it could have been shown how they raise their child & how AshNi also feel that a child would make their bond even more stronger and all that but instead when RanJi were thinking of baby, they gave Anji a stupid dialogue:"Mujhe kya karna hai, bachche ka toh sab kuch Mummy sambhalegi"
And, honestly I dont think anybody is happy with khushi as RanJi's adopted child even...
B'day blooper was truly embarassing & its justification from wall is even more illogical
Last time it wasnt BB's birthday but Ashu's birthday which was more highlighted that since he was an orphan; didnt know his bday and thats how BB started celebrating his own birthday as Ashu's too. This generated lot of sympathy for Ashu. Also, Ashu's yearning for child to revive his own lost childhood & someone of his own bloodline etc. talks started with this Bday celebration only so this time its hard to digest for ppl to see BB's b'day again but not Ashu's.
And, 100% agreed with what u mentioned about professional track - hospital casualty drama would be excellent track & Rohan's track too with his letter would be a wonderful track. Rohan's comeback could be major twist in story & trp booster - only if handled with some new ideas rather than the stereotype jealousy track. And, of course, NO mallu and NO khushi pleaseee...
