    I agree with Apara Mehta!!!!

    Indian shows are far from reality!!!!

    And shows like MJHT and DMG were nowhere close to modernity!!!!!

    As for giving freedom, no one gives freedom, one just has to take it!!!!!

    Indian shows should be like how YRF made the shows, with one heroine struggling to make her career, another an established owner of a company, another a wife of an industrialist yet teaching at schools for the poor to keep her identity (and that too in a period drama), etc!!!!!

    Indian shows need to be more light n fun rather than showing only huge drama day by day...we have enough saas-bahu dramas..what we need is a change of concept!

    OMG I was just talking about this issue when Meri Bhabi came out on our screens. You just don't see those types of relationships in reality of a happy family. However I will say that I'm glad that Shows like YRKKH are traditional as it really hits home and keeps us grounded to our roots. Yes I admit there is loads of melodrama but doesn't all soaps be it western and eastern have some melodrama to show effect? I'm born and bred in the UK however I personally prefer Indian soaps way over western like eastenders or the big bang theory. The only eastern series I watch are the Apprentice and Sherlock,lol. Sooo...overall love tellywood the way it is. Don't become wannabe western shows. Stay true to roots.:)

    I think melodrama need to be banned. There have been shows in the past that have shown a better grasp of reality. Not all American shows, show their reality but it has more realistic concepts and ideals compared to Indian shows that still work in the old mind set.
