13 Indian TV Shows That Make Us Question Why On Earth They Are Here

Who remembers Tulsi from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi? I'm sure at least the 90's kids do!

Back then we as kids did not have the Internet, so all we could resort to was TV and the serials it showed. We didn't have much of choice, and so we watched whatever aired on TV. But what now? Why are there still hopeless and idiotic serials made? Like it's humanly not possible for my brain to understand that who writes these scripts and how do actors actually agree to play these roles? Like really, why? Why on Earth?

Today, I'm going to talk about some of the most bizarre, weird, illogical and what-the-fuck TV serials ever made in India. 

Scroll down and have a look!

1. Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi

1. Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi

This show was more of a science fiction than a family drama.


1. The grandmother aka Baa lived for seven generations and outlived many of her grandchildren too.

We think she genetically modified herself so she could choose the time of her death. Only plausible explanation.


2.  The producers seemed to have used a time machine take 20-year leaps whenever the show becomes mind-numbing and boring

Moreover, they dyed one strand of hair grey of the characters to make it look authentic.


3. They randomly replaced characters (actors) and no one seems to mind or notice the change.

2. CID

2. CID

CID has been aired on television for about 17-18 years and still continues. It is about an investigation team who apparently have supernatural powers, who definitely are the only humans capable of getting infra-red radiations with swimming goggles, breaking doors, finding the seller of a piece of material just by looking at a thread from it, detecting fingerprints just by looking, and slapping criminals right into the bureau. The content makes one wonder whether it's a comedy or…? We are at a loss for words.

3. Sasural Simar Ka

3. Sasural Simar Ka

Well, this serial started off with a sensible concept of a girl who wanted to continue her passion for dancing even after marriage; of wanting to live her life with freedom, something that she could not do while at her parent's home. From a practical storyline to suddenly switching to black magic and being a Daayan; the bahu of Bharadwaj's doing everything bizarre. Despite having everything absurd, the surprising part is that his serial stands in the top few ranks on the TRP list!

4. Ye Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai

4. Ye Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai

This show revolves around the life of two wealthy families. They pick on the most trivial issues to make a big deal out of it. They don't have any real problems; so, they make some up for themselves. Even a child can come up with a better concept!

5. Third Eye of Nirmal Baba

5. Third Eye of Nirmal Baba

This show is not just plain stupid but totally mindless and ridiculous too! It beats a lot of other programs to being completely unwanted on television! There was a rumour that he once advised a man/woman that eating samosa with green chutney could solve all his/her life problems.

For those of you who are not familiar with this serial, Nirmal Baba is a self-styled Godman known to advise and help people solve their problems. Like seriously?


We simply can't understand how people in this century prepared to throw a percentage of their salaries on this man!

6. Qubool Hai

6. Qubool Hai

We would never have thought that this love story would actually introduce a witch to increase their TRP. It started as a serial ready to crush the stereotypes related to Muslim women but slowly turned into something so dreadful that it lost its intriguing plot. The serial showcases things that bear no relation to real life. The main actors have been killed, and one of them is getting re-born.

You have to be absolutely jobless to watch this.

7. Balika Vadhu

7. Balika Vadhu

This serial was well thought of initially. It dealt with the rights of children, highlighted the issues of child marriage and the problems children face due to such practices. But now, it has been running for so many years and has joined the stream of other ridiculous Hindi serials.

8. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah

8. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah

We can't understand why this serial on SAB is so popular? Looks like the viewers seem to be suffering from some kind of disorder. There is absolutely no content, just annoying voices, pointless sound effects and makeup that will make you flinch, giving you an agonizing headache in only thirty minutes.

9. Splitsvilla

9. Splitsvilla

A nasty and demeaning TV show that attempts to entertain us with shameful feats by making participants take on lame tasks and fake relationships. It's not a traditional TV serial, but still annoying enough!

10. Uttaran

10. Uttaran

This has to be one of the worst serials ever to be telecasted. There is no proper concept and meaning to this program. Not only does this serial not relate to real life but it is the plot that is totally senseless and mindless. The women's makeup and dress up are ridiculous.

11. Diya Aur Baati Hum

11. Diya Aur Baati Hum

The serial started off with a decent concept of a 'Halwai' husband who supports his wife's career, but unfortunately, it began to drag out, losing its plot, message and charm. Sadly, it has now joined the list of other bizarre TV shows.

12. Pehredaar Piya Ki 

12. Pehredaar Piya Ki 

In just six episodes Pehredaar Piya Ki has been called everything from a regressive cringe-fest to a creepy concoction of stalking and child marriage. The show's makers have us playing right into their promotional trickery. What is being sold in the name of a unique love story is one of Indian television's most bizarre plots till date, with characters so unconvincing that guessing the show's trajectory is a no brainier. To begin with, Diya (Tejaswi Prakash), an 18-year-old Princess, is given the sole responsibility of Ratan Banna (Afaan Khan), the 9-year-old heir to a supposedly enviable Rajput empire, one that he stands the risk of losing his life over. Of course, the only way for her to be able to protect him is to be his wife.


I'll give you a moment alone with that logic.

13. Naagin 

13. Naagin 

This serial is a great show for all the snakes! It has everything going for it with two beautiful female protagonists, a handsome hunk an average VFX, except…a good script! Looks like the makers of this show have forgotten that we are in the year 2017; where the world is progressing at rapid speed. And what's even more surprising is that this show has topped the list with respect to TRP's. Ohh really?
