the CVs seem tobe a heartless and insensitive bunch
... who neither care for the story/characters nor the audience... they want their trps at any cost even making the very audience, who give them their trp, unhappy.
There is nothing wrong in expecting the CVs to have a special place in their hearts for the characters they have produced and nurtured... on the contrary its really surprising and shameful to see how easily they can eliminate a character who is the main theme of the story, the main lead... so easily!!
If they want to increase the trp then it shud be the story which shud be made interesting ... bring all the twist and turns they want, but just eliminating the hero only proves that the creatives are not at all creative... they really suck...
as u said... the audience who helped them maintain the little trp they cud gather, wud atleast have felt justified with a happy ending rather than the crapy change they have brought in the serial...
Most of us are frustrated and angry, to say the least... and I for one have quit watching it...
Thanks for your appreciation of my debut post, Cjs!
I concur with the issues you have raised in your reply.
Firstly, twists and turns are always welcome as you said, provided they are sensitive and not cruel. They can always be used to fuel the TRPs when required.
Secondly, atleast the makers of the show/ channel should have given us a happy ending as a mark of their gratitude to our loyal viewership. But, now it seems they want to punish us for not being able to supply the TRPs they wanted! Appaling!
There are many twists and turns which keep the shows in top slots running. Insensitive tracks can never bring Trps.
Maybe better writers on other channels could have handled the concept well. The first mistake was the Daadi drama and now Madhav's cruel death.
& yes, on sony most of the shows have Low Trps around 0.6/0.7/0.8/0.5
But only DKNSK viewers have been punished.
Well said, Arunima!
TRPs can be gained in various other ways that donot heartlessly hurt the viewers' sentiments:
a) Parallel sub-plots : Which are used by Ekta Kapoor serials.
b) Character alteration plots : Where some positive character turns negative to add to the lead actor's problems.
c) Monetary status plots: Again used by many Balaji Productions soaps, where the lead pair/ family has to go through some economic hardship where their relationship strenghtens and new dimensions are added.
There can be many such ways to gain TRPs. Such tracks not only interest new viewers but also strenghten the existing viewership.
The Sony Entertainment Television team is equally responsible for not encouraging such tracks and they should blame only themselves for continously lagging behind among the Hindi general entertainment channels.
u r right Abhishek.its the channel's fault.sony always comes up with diff n unique thing but they don't know hw to execute it.their fiction's main plot always end within 3 months,the fictions of sony lacks sub-plot.generally the execution is fast.characters presented r always flat n typical.side characters r mostly for embellishment.its time for the channel to reinvent themself.i really feel sad that there is nothing left in this show other than Madhav's Aradhya's punar vivah
Thats a very good analysis, Rtms!
This shows where exactly the fault lies with the channel! I completely agree with you that all Sony shows hold a lot of promise in the beginning and till a certain period of time and then suddenly they seem to run out of fuel and fizz away without fully exploiting the potential they seemed to have initially.
I completely agree that Sony's shows are fast-paced, but I dont feel that should be a problem till the essence is not lost. In fact, fast paced shows are interesting as they dont test the viewer's patience. For example, before the arrival of cable television in India, Doordarshan had fixed number of episodes per show. This not only helped the maker decide the pace and content, but also helped the channel bring various shows and genre to the viewers and also gave each show a fair and sensible ending. No wonder then that most of the shows were landmarks in the respective genre and remain etched in the viewers' memories till date. This simple methodology doesnt seem to find resonance with today's CVs and Channel Heads!!
Perhaps, the one thing Sony's shows miss is a good and sensible closure to each show that would allow viewers to carry good memories of the show with them forever.
Sony needs to change the people in control now!
