The TRP's of the episodes of Teri Meri Love Stories are hovering around 1 or are below 1. The buzz is that producers end up spending more on telefilms as they want higher production values but don't end up making money from it.

We asked a few producers whose telefilms had been telecast on Teri Meri Love Stories about the economic aspect. They however wished not to comment on this commercial aspect but did give their opinion on why the telefilms were fetching low TRP.

Rajan Shahi of Director's Kut said, "I would not like to comment on the economics of telefilms as that is between me and the channel. I would however like to say that telefilms have a fresh and innovative presentation. It will take time for telefilms to pick up. We should experiment instead of going by the safe tried and tested route. We shouldn't have just daily soaps and reality shows. We need to look beyond that. It is too early to jump to the conclusion that telefilms have failed to appeal to the audience by judging the performance of the initial weeks."

Neeraj Sachdeva of  Shontara Productions too was tight-lipped on the commercial aspect of losses and gains. He explained, "When I made my telefilm for Teri Meri Love Stories I didn't want to be calculative in terms of money. About the not-so-high TRPs of the telefilms, let me say that  one episode was pitched against the DID finale. Yet another episode was pitched against the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa episode with Salman Khan and Katrina. We have strong shows on Colors, Zee and Sony also going on at the same time. The popularity of telefilms isn't dying down. In fact I think the popularity will pick up soon."

Myleeta Aga, General Manager of BBC Worldwide Productions India told us crisply, "I don't know much about the commercial aspect. I think it will take some time till the viewer gets used to this new concept. Getting viewership on weekends is anyway difficult as families go out."

The TRP of the show last week was Sun (0.7) Sat (1.0). The TRP this week is Sun (1.0) 1.5 (Sat). The producers are right. The TRP is gradually climbing it seems.

    I love this concept and I don't want it to end because of the number drama. What irritates me is that the already very short film was further shortened by half hour. THATS JUST NOT FAIR. I DEMAND THAT THEY SHOW ONE TELEFILM ON SATURDAY AS WELL AS SUNDAY, SO ATLEAST WE HAVE A STORY AT A REGULAR PACE AND IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE WE ARE SEEKING SOME NICE STORY IN FAST FORWARD MODE!!!!!

    I think the indian audience is used to watching daily soaps that's why thwy will only watch that never ending bakwaas. I Like tmls..it's short sweet and simple. I like the mix match and to be honest you don't see same people over again in american shows either. Anyways I hope the TRPs improve and it's a good attempt can't say great..but definitely Indian tv directors should learn from Pak shows as to how to project stories ..you don't need glam and all that to make audience appeal to you. Trust me tmls is thousand times better then typical shows so I'm not complaining.

    I think there is too many songs etc for the short time period - therefore the story suffers - and also there needs to be a variance - it has become routine

    --> two people meet, fall in love, have and issue, realise, confess, happily ever after

    we need some sort of variance, I wouldn't mind seeing an incomplete love story - keeps the interest level up.

    and story lines need to be meatier - the amount of actual story can be wrapped up in less than half the time, which makes it boring to a certain extent.

    But I'm still enjoying it :)

    Its because they dnt have interesting concept! Thats why!.. So far the only concept i liked was KSG's one!.. Yesterday was a good epi, but yet again everything was rushed, so it made me jjust want to turn off my tv! I hope we get to see more interesting concepts and better executions!

    Agree with masin, seeing same couple just for love of fans is too much dosage, give fresh couples, so far i liked all couples, my fav are simran - raghu and Kareena-Aryan...

    Avoid songs and dances on them and work little more on script ... show will rock

    Exactly mismatch of jodis ,is the reason of low trps,trps wont increase in future also ,bc SP is not listenining to veiwers choice,demand of favs jodis like Hiten n Gauri ..:) why cant SP listen to viewers request thats the reason of these trps,n in 1.0 these also consider low trps if they have taken famous jodis then trps would cross 2 diff but they dont want to listen .
