Today there are very few shows like Ba Bahu Aur Baby, Ek Chaabi Hai Pados Main which has still not fallen to those stupid, repetitive, ghisa-pita story lines yet and which is not regressive.

I think they should look at some of the Fan-Fictions written by our members and get inspired. LOL

Forget about kitchen, Vijay, they have their makeup and jewelry and well combed hair even when they just woke up after a whole night's sleep! I mean how dumb is that!

I think the major problem with today's directors is that they want to drag the show if the audience is liking it until they start hating it and yell at them to end the show.  I think that's a wrong technique.  IF you end your soap at a good corner instead of dragging it then the audience will be waiting for your next show and boast up its TRPs.

Today's shows lack the essence of reality and creativity.

Hi All!

I don't think that new TV shows put the creativity on backburner,infact the TV shows have  moved to front runner.Those characters  are far ahead of our timesLOL.

I agree that same stuff is shown in almost all the serials but each one displays their character in their own way(on a prolonged time of the serial they all become very foolish that's different issue).

Consider poor heroine and rich hero concept:

Its shown in different manner in JJKN.Where ArmaanSir( Apurva AgnihotriEmbarrassed) and Mona Singh really acted well.On a long run the serial got ruined Jassi turned to Jessica and all those weird stuff was shown.Even then, I say JJKN is best serial.

The same conceptis shown in different manner in Kaajal.In this also Apurva and that heroine(I donot know her name) are acting well.

How can serial writers bring concepts from heavens.There is nothing wrong in having serials realted to our daily lives.This is not an indication of creativity loss !!

If people think like that

No new invention will be made

No new product will be launched

Cheers,

Mythili

I think it's the 'housewives' category who are more easily influenced by these soaps, people like to watch others problems and enjoy watching how they manage to hide things and handle the matter in a 'way' that we people won't really do in real life because of the norms and values which we have to respect in society. So for most people it's crazy and damn spicy thing, packed with twists. on the other hand intelligent people don't get easily influenced and are less apt to become addicted to them.

We are given what the majority WANT to see!! Don't we face harsh realism every day of our life? So whats wrong with seeing these saas-bahu serials or the hate-love stories if they fulfill our needs. I do agree that Ekta recycles her work TOO much, esp. with Kasam Se which given the popularity, she rolled in to Karam Apna Apna.

But we do have serials like Saath Phere,GKLB or Dulhann....even though they do seem like your typical serial. Their style of telling the story is different!! They don't need the whole lot of twists and turns to get the viewer hooked. Its the content!! And thats why these have given major competition to Ekta K serials.
