    yup...copying tracks of movies shows lack of new ideas...but in such competetive environment ...when the shows have a long way to go but feel short of ideas...they are forced to copy some tracks from some movies...but some shows pick up the whole concept from some or the other movie which some times seems very boring too...but even copying needs brains na..??...nd once a show does it successfully..who cares..!!..no one minds the copied tracks when its entertaining...nd why only soaps...80% of the movies are also copied from any hollywood or tollywood movie..!!...so why only soaps to be blamed for lack of creativity.!??!!...movies also fall in the same category..!!...so its just an old nd popular trend earlier only in movies but now in soaps too..!!!...
