I have been watching serials for a very long time and have come to the conclusion that somwhere something went wrong and they became totally inane and pointless.Sure there are some good ones but they are rare that its almost finding a pearl in an oyster.
I remember when you had serials like Buniyaad, Humlog etc which were long but they made some sense unlike KGGK which seems to show no signs of ending and get more and more meaningless as time passes.
Then there are those shows that started out brilliantly and then they got extensions and started going downhill like Tumhari Disha.Its almost like people have forgotten than serials can be short and sweet like Fauji.It lasted for thirteen weeks and that was it.
I think somewhere something went wrong.A part me thinks its the american serials like the bold and the beautiful that probably influenced our serials.They have characters who marry so many times and have children from half a dozen different husbands/lovers.
It works in the US but it always suprises me when something like that happens in Indian TV shows and people accept it.It makes me wonder if we have become so americanised that all this nonsense seems acceptable to us?
Some of these shows dont even have a storyline and that is the most tragic thing.Beautiful stories seems to be passe.It almost seems like if you wrtie somethng nice you may be excommunicated from the writers community.
Is it only me who feels like this or are there people who share my sentiments??

I completely agree with you.  TV Serials hit the mass more than the movies these days.  Junoon was another mEga like the B&B which draged beyond toleration and disappeared without notice.  B&B may have kicked off the idea of mEgas but, it fails to be a success till the last episode when it is strechted for too long right ? I have read in few magazines, where the directors are asked to bring the story to an end and the story ends just abruptly.

Pakistani Serials usually last for certain number of episodes. They don't drag on stretching the story.

I totally agree with u mema_ma.Remember serials like Nukkad,Circus,Buniyaad.There are so many old serials which are still on my mind.Tongue

I think Shanti was the first serial which was stretched like a rubber band.It continued for three years.I think it was the first Indian TV Soap.Some serials in recent times like Hum Pardesi Ho Gaye,Alpaviram were good and they ended well.

Serials should be short and sweet.I think serials like Kyunki Saa Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi,Kahaani Ghar Ghar ki,Kkusum,Kasauti Zindagi Kay should end and something new and fresh serials should be started.It will be also a refreshment for audiences.

Iam really bored of dramas,plastic surgeries,memory loss,polygamyAngry.I stopped watching these serials.Iam in search of fresh serials different from K series and other rubber band soaps.

It is just my opinion.Not intending to offend any one.

"the viewers are more to blame for the degradation"

I must applaud you for such a hard-hitting letter.  It is we the viewers who are contributing to the corruption of our mind.  Look at the ardent worship in this very forum!!!
