First of all there are ppl here in india as well as abroad..
i met one peculiar one/she used to say- Oh gog oh gOd..i love los angeles, i love hollywood, Bollywood is such crap ..Eeks..i dont watch this song and dance movies.Bollywood is not for me.Hope if Indian film industry cud make films like west."
Similarly there is another ppl..i can take one of my old college mates she says.- " Indian TV .No way.Yucks..i better watch Friends, the apprentice, the big bang theory. or better watch salman bollywood films .I wont watch these family dramas and all."
So these type of reactions had always been there andd will be there in coming times
the fact remains that Bollywood cant become Hollywood at all and Indian Tv cant become International Tv setup. Because in india an average audience is liking what is going at present.
Shows for 5 yrs and plus wudnt run if there was no market. Kyunki saas bhi was closed abruptly but even in its eighth year also it had more than 5 point TRP's . So there is a market for family melodramas. that is why it exists..and
I appreciate ekta kappor
all i can say is her shows were the flavour of that decade.Not now. I used to like those shows like kaisa yeh pyar hai,kahin to hoga during 2003, 2005 era. Not now.
But i cannot say it was rubbish. wen we were child we used to read comics..Now we dont read comics..so we cant say that how idiot i was that i read comics. Everything has a time.. the balaji era is gone..those formulas dont work now at all neither the interst me
But still i wud say people shout we dont make saas-bahu shows..we make nayi soch shows.
Its a big lie. The new shows are packaged differently and they claim that its a show with message.I dont agree. saathiya in star plus is totally a kitchen politics show..and star plus says we have stopped balaji type of shows. what a liar.. they hav thrown out balaji serilas but packaged their news shows as if they are not saas-bahu shows. This is hypocrisy
So why this thing??
the reason is theer is still a market , a huge market who watches these shows with interst..
eevn male members who hv got one Tv at home watches it.
These shows run for years cause they hv market..The day there is no market.it wud be over.
So dont feel that u dont like watching these shows that means others dont watch.There is sufficent audience available
Other things is that many of us here wud also might hv watched them .Its not about young or old ppl. All K serials used to be watched by young ppl too. cause there was not much internet savvy audience then.
Reason- Look its not the problem of TV content. basically.. these days young ppl spend more time on Internet. watching Tv has become boring. Youngsters watch Tv ..something which is immediate, different.quick. No one has patience to watch a daily soap and follow it.unless its damn intersting.
In todays times internet keeps youngsters occupied and when we dont find content of our choice ..we do feel Tv indystry is not that efficient enough.
I agree with that..even i dont like any daily shows at present...But i accept it that there is a huge market of hindi understanding audience who watch these shows whatever be the time period it runs..Ppl are addicted to Tv serials and Bollywood as a gateway of entertainment. and are accepting what is being offered.
No one is complaining apart from some urban elites..the main hindi heartland is happy with the programming.
For us we can only wait for change or shift to watch movies.
ignore typo errors.
