Discussion of the week

 We are going to post one very controversial topic every week and invite your opinion on it. However I request you to follow a few basic rules

1) these are just opinions and do not reflect a person's moral/social/ idealogical values so please refrain from name calling and personal attacks

2) keep the post decent (some topics might be infuriating). rest assured they are from what we encounter in our daily life and we expect a honest , healthy and intellectual debate.

3)if you have any ideas for the topics...please forward them to the moderators.

         I hope you will take this opportunity to participate in this debate without being judgemental. Open mindedness and tolerance have been the greatest asset of this forum. Also please feel free to send us feedbacks if you would like to continue with these discussions or not.

Ok let's start: Our topic for this week is

 "DO TV SHOWS IMMITATE REALITY OR REALITY IMMITATES TV SHOWS"

      TV show producers and directors often claim that thier story is influenced by true story of someone somewhere, on the other hand tv shows often influence public perceptions, lifestyle, fashions and trends.they also have a great impact culturally. are tv shows really an interpretation of twisted reality or they are the one that cause the reality....

Let the debate began.....

I think that reality imitates TV shows. I belive some of tv shows will be based on reality but not all.

Now-a-days we get to see such TV shows in which we dont have any reality. All growing kids.watch such shows and do grow in that path only. Sometimes Tv leads us to good path but not always. It even shows us wrong way especially Ektaa's shows. She is spoiling todaysgeneration kids.

But on the whole we cant even balme on TV shows bcoz person must have their own thinking also.

But i feel that Reality imitates Tv shows more.

I agree with cutereems.  I also want to add that some shows (all of kekta's) are extremely unrealistic and can't mirror anyone's life.  I mean who goes to bed wearing such heavy saris and makeup only to wake up looking so perfect??? Confused  Kekta also alwas has this plastic surgery plot where a character meets with an accident and their face is disfigured so their face changes to look like someone else (two examples come to mind...Koi Apna Sa and Kutumb).  How realistic and feasible is this????Confused

However there are shows out there, like JJKN and Astitva which are more realistic and deal with the concerns of average middle class people and not rich business families. 

So I would say that in shows like JJKN and Astitva, tv imitates reality, but in the case of kekta, her shows DO NOT imitate what is reality or the lives of the average Indian viewer.

TV shows imitates reality, the shows usually start of being realistic, they have some of the same issues and problems, but as the show continues, to keep the rating up, producers and directors come up with un-realistic situations(plastic surgery, coming back to life, or the 20 year leaps having everyone look the same) that doesn't happen in real life
