Shymaladi I don't know what the final message would come in, but I somehow feel it will be good and not regressive how much ever sloppy the screenplay and how much ever loop holes they have. Talking because of EHT experience. The entire forum was lamenting the premature shutting down, the rushed screenplay, bloopers and loopholes. Even I had lamented, shouted a lot those days. But in the end if the soap won it was because of 3 things
- One the scene where the rape victim herself brings down the perpetuor of the crime( When Payal slaps Shaurya and hits him with all her might after extracting his confession doing a abla nari act, you as a viewer feel vindicated that you didn't invest your time on a wrong soap)
- They showed the rape victim's honour restored in court and not any vindicative justice.
- They showed the difference between a man who uses woman and a man who respects woman between Shaurya and Dev. It also showed a woman wins when she knows with whom she needs to be Nithya and with whom she needs to be Durga. If she understand the constructive and destructive forces within her and use it in the right way, no one can stop her.
All this I can write about EHT because it finished, for MK I can write this only in the end. But I don't have it in me to shout on MK as the energy for that is lost and well for any TV show my expectations are always low knowing TRP system, so I rate things only from that perspective.
I don't expect any major change in TV scenario for the next 5-10 years. Even if new concepts are introduced they will fall flat in the TRP race and will have to fine tune things to accommodate TRP. Else we should get more shows like Everest where shooting is done and dusted with before the commencement of the show. I sometimes really feel sad for the directors, producers, script writers who are really trying to give something new, but in the end has to walk the same line for TRP as in the end it is all business.
@happy TRP wont come just like that and with the changes only loyal fans gets more hurt
. MK for me the core problem was whole Maya Bhajan. I am damn sure many viewer's were simply put of by it. There was no chemistry between the leads and people simply couldn't understand the need of that character. CVs simply should have cut down that portion even if they were intending that as illusion. That would have given him time to concentrate on the script for the later part which was much necessary.
Just look at the new BARC rating and look at the top 5 shows. Everything is same khichdi. I know the 10 and 10:30 shows on SP is pretty decent, but look at their TRP, bottom of the chart in the channel. Sad thing, but that is how Indian TV scenario is. Sometimes I just feel like I am not watching any more shows and will switch to my music channels or channels like Safari or the max episodics like Yeh hai Aashique or Savdhaan India
