Nina I am not big fan of Saath Phere but the Purani dowari ka raaz was FAR more powerful than the PR raaz. Ekta's way of revealing secrets are so tiresome and predictable. Its not necessary for secrets to be the main highlight for so many months.

In Dulhann (Haha..yes it rocks the most)...Sindoora has a RAAZ which was hinted upon a few times in the beginning of the serial but then that was it. Dulhann has so much potential even after 5-6 months of running, when usually most serials lose their steam during this time. We are yet to see a change in the 3 principle characters in the serial, Saagar recovering, Vidya becoming bold and Sindoora's secret. Nothing much has happened storywise yet it has pulled the audience!!!

I totally agree with the aricle…after the success with Kyunki….not only ekta but other producers also flooded the every television channel  with mega serials of same type where  Kesar Tulsi, Parvati, Prerna, Kumkum and Bani became the eternalcrusaders of justice even after successive generation leaps, sacrificing everything for the sake of their family….and be it a Saloni from sath phere or bani from kasam Se …all r same   *sigh*.

 

Characters cross several scores of age, hardly appealing to our reason, whether life expectancy works wonders on television. Needless to say most of the serials flaunting the lifestyles of the wealthy are far removed from reality without bearing an inkling of similarity with the life of the common people who derive vicarious pleasure from the onscreen heroes and heroines. The time-tested formulae to retain the TRP rates are generation leaps, death of the lead heroes or heroines, their re-birth or even bringing them back negating their death, elaborate wedding ceremonies, etc…..(All shows are same "hum sab ek hain " ….where logic is a strict no no)…..most of us watch those shows to just drool over the guys in the show
The innumerable number of serials endlessly repeats the same stories and also same kind of back ground music  over and over again due to dearth of original and creative ideas. The plot is essentially the same, the underlying message is uniform - family unity, but the characters are persistently changed to impart a sense of freshness to the otherwise musty serials

All those serials  are  soo much depressing that I don't now what type of entertainment ppl (including my mom and sometimes me tooLOL</????????>)  get by watching those show…Karan Johar's movies are absurd too but they are not depressing and most of the time don't get on our nerves

A devoted fan of ekta mai

Nina, in Sindoor...Vedika recovered within a month or so which was a stupid move by the makers because they could have done a lot with the storyline. With Koshish, there was a relationship between Kajal and Neeraj but with Saagar-Vidya there is romance,cuteness and they sizzle even the in the sweetest of scenes. Its their chemistry and scenes which make the show different from others. Barring the initial episodes of Dulhann, I haven't once thought of Koshish when I watch Dulhann. And Koshish ended where neeraj got better, Dulhann will begin when Saagar recovers. Smile

Aak most people here.They either watch the soap for the heroes ( Embarrassed ) or the heroine's dresses !! Wink
No one watches soaps for their storyline specialy ekta soaps which seem as if a new character is born everyday. Tongue
And when we do have path breaking soaps we need to check wether its copied from somewhere...( like we Indians cannot think!)
Somestimes I wish they had this SMS service even with soaps..we could dictate some meaningful stories!! LOL

d main problem today is d very fact dat TV soaps show wat dey think ppl want 2 see..
ekats soaps became a hit 5 years ago,becoause at dat time,dey were "different"..if 2day...indian soaps try 2 be "diffrent" either dey fall prey 2 d channels TRP demands, or 2 deir own money problems...
channels like Star One started out wid new concepts..but now,even dat channels riverted 2 family sagas...its like ppl cant see changing times...dyey all want 2 watch d same old "gu-gurl-sitting-at-home" or woman fiting for justice themes...
n ppl who are sensible enuf 2 know dat deres nuthing in dese shows,watch dem coz deres nuthing else 2 watch on TV...
as sum1 ritely mentioned, ppl watch most of dese soaps either 4 d hero,or d heroines clothes...coz dese soaps offer nuthing like either a storyline or gud entertainement..
