that was beautifuly expressed. creatives are the ones who etch the character and nurture it. and then they kill it. well the only answer to your question is there is no room for emotions these days. sadly, things have become very fake, superficial, mean and emotionless. all they want is TRPs and they can do anything to get the numbers. they can even kill their own creativity for that.
i believe Ekta Kapoor is far mor better than other producers and actors. she not only makes her main leads look beautiful and loving but also sees to it that they remain in the hearts and eyes of the viewers. separation tracks are shown but then the couple get back, death is shown but the story is twisted and the loved character gets back to life. whatever u say but she listens to the audience's hearts and wishes.
secondly, i really dont understand the trp system. its killing the essence of TV and story telling. on one hand viewers are getting so attached to the characters and their fav actors, we have forums to discuss, we have access to FB and twitter profiles of the actors, directors and producers, fans are coming closer to each other and their fav actors as well AND on the other hand channel people and the PH are killing the essence and also hurting the sentiments of the fans for numbers.
why cant they just have a stipulated time for their show, a specific story line, specific time period and then end the story like a story book ends. that's it. with this the actors wont be made to leave the show before hand and the fans wont be disappointed also. actors would know when to start searching for new work and more stories would come up as well. moreover good shows wont be axed just because of the trps.
m really gonna miss Rohit now. have been so upset since the news was out and now even more upset. feels like something is missing. he's fabulous in his work. all the roles he has taken till now has been unconventional and have been welcomed as well as loved by the audience. he managed to overpower the well welcomed jodi of veer and iccha in Uttaran with his entry as vansh. people started drolling over vansh and loved watching him with Iccha. he managed to gather a huge fan following as Dhruv in MJHT even when his character was there to separate the main couple--Nupur and Mayank. and then even in Dor he managed to woe us Bhaskar.
Ehsaas is an addition to the love Rohit has spread with his work. gonna miss watching him now...hope he comes soon.
Thank you very much, Neha!
I completely agree with you on each of the concerns you have raised. I agree that there seems to be no room for the viewers' emotions at all. The adjectives you have used : fake, superficial, mean and emotionless- aptly describe the state of affairs on Indian television these days. Also, I agree on the Ekta Kapoor issue. Initially, we were relieved that her monopoly ended, but now even I feel that she handled her characters with atleast some more sensitivity. Also, all of us stand together when it comes to criticising the TRPs system.
Well said, Neha!
