Small screen apes big; creativity down the tube

Where has all the creativity gone, wonder television viewers who find that an increasing number of soaps have annoyingly familiar stories, taken from one Bollywood blockbuster or the other.

    love karanvir for his acting as viraj, fantastic acting as over-possessive husband.

    It happens with all indian shows at some point or the other :P

    Ravindra Gautam's words explain it all plus if viewers find the stories and characters entertaining: so what is the problem??

    And even if there is resemblance cannot it be coincidental?? I mean there are several tracks which are very common among many shows and movies. Like having a extra marital affair: is Biwi no. 1 only movie and KHTV only show which shows this?? No there are many infact. Plus how can they b similar when many a things and like Mona said treatment is different and even characters are different. So I have no problems untill it looks like a carbon copy to me and I feel bored to watch the same thing again!!
