shows should have a some sort of conscious social msg as what they show enables justification for the corrupt practices of society. If you see people being segregated by colour or caste or social standing on tv, you seem to find a means to justify your prejudice because it is on tv, we acknowledge such bias happens and so be it!

However, Bidaai seems to have found a way to ridicule those who put such serious emphasis on skin colour by the contrasting of Vasu/Ambika - the darker sister is actually smarter, Sadhna-Vasu - the one who doesn''t judge by skin colour is more loved and the protagonist Ranvir-Indrajit contrast also shows how Indrajet is miserable because he gave so much emphasis to beauty when choosing a life-partner and how ranvir will probably be happier because he chose someone based on more than just beauty. In that way Bidaai has been able to pass a good social msg but to appreciate it, you must think deeper and applaud the use of literary techniques to subtly deliver these msgs!!!

Thanks for the article.

These shows are made with the sole purpose of entertainment and not to give social messages. Audiences prefer it that way.

so agree with the article balika vadhu was suppose 2 show why children should not be married but here we have girls being married n living happily anandi-jagya n sugna is dying 2 go 2 live with her husband n even consumated her marraige before the gavna abt gehna she was fighting but she gave in for house peace n all n now she is forced 2 go through the pregnancy which will cost her life i eman abortion 2 be done ya not should be completely a woman''s decision she has go through 9 months so its her right

abt bandini again girl married 2 a man thrice her age n bidaai it should show ppl should not judge person on their skin colour but here we have vasu n ambika blood sisters but their relation constrained cause of skin colour n ragini facing so many taunts n problems cause of her colour ranvir is supporting ehr now but at a time he will be fed up ppl laughing at him

abt black magic its the recent TRP masala for serial previous birth ghost haunting their lovers n would be brides plzzzzzzzzzz

maya balika vadhu is a documentary drama giving out social message even bidaai

I totally Disagree with the doesn''t make sense..these are shows meant for entertaintment n not documentries yet balika vadhu n bidaai have good messages n Shree is quite entertaining..ya it shows ghosts n black magic but its just a show n ppl''re sensible enuf to distinguish between reel n real...the main reason we watch these shows is for entertaintment n for fun to bust the stress of the day so if these shows''re like boring documentries then whats the point...if ppl need educational programs watch news or discovery channel n skip serials
