If you looked at last week's TRP points, Sangini compares very poorly with Pavitra Rishta, Ram Milaye Jori and others. Its rank is way way down to 54 from 17 or 22 that it was couple of months ago. This is the result of a poor script and lack of a convincing story. This is a modern generation, and in order for love stories to be successful, they have to bring in a contemporary perspective, so the current generation can relate to it. Unfortunately Sangini's storyline is totally in the world of make-belief, with demonic men and evil Masis, unrealistic themes of memory loss, and love triangles. In this modern era of advancement of medical science, science, and IT, characters of Rudra, Gauri, Bhabi, Pihu, Masis, Villains are all frozen in the time frame. It is impossible for the viewers to connect with such a fragile and unrealistic storyline.
I am not a fan of Pavitra Rishta, but I am amazed at their popularity. It made me think. PR is the story of an ordinary modern-day couple struggling for a respectable life, and their relationship with their parents, in-laws, and siblings. Each person has a story. Though Maanav and Archana are the main characters, but their parents, brothers and sisters all have almost equal share in the story. All these stories reflect contemporary issues and values. And after thinking deeply about it I realized that viewers of all age, young and old, can relate to it.
Ram Milaye Jori is the story of a couple from two different cultural backgrounds with very different values, set in contemporary India. Again there are two families, and the lives of the main characters Mona and Anukalp, revolve round their parents, and other family members. The dialogues are witty, interesting and modern. A perfect story for old and young.
Please note that both the above shows have very few villains. Sure there are a few bad guys, but they are not those ancient demonic villain stereotypes.
I had a lot of hope for Sangini. I thought Rudra and Gauri will work hard to build a business of their own, both will be working shoulder to shoulder, and at some point of life will have misunderstandings that are common between modern working couples (not because of extra marital affairs, but other things, may be relationship with parents, issues with running their company, ego issues about who is better). Side by side they could have a parallel storyline with Pihu transforming from a spoilt egoistic girl to a responsible doctor, a true Sangini for Abhay. That would be a contemporary storyline. In fact, it was going in that direction. Suddenly, comes PC, Ram-Revathy, and now another Masi from the pre-historic zamana. On top of it an unrealistic storyline that can never take place in real life. These theories can no longer attract audience. In fact, Hindi movies have moved away from these ancient concepts a long time ago.
With the axe fallen on Geeta already, I do not see much hope for Sangini if this unconvincing storyline continues. We should hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst.
I agree with all that u said in the above. When Rg moved out of the haveli the stoyy was going good but tthen the Cvs had to introduce their maasis ,chachis and rams.
