Indian television productions are famous for two major causes. Firstly, for showing the most cliched things in a senseless manner. Secondly, for their never-ending seasons. This is a matter of fact that the over-the-top bizarre that we see on Indian television, they can only be done by our television actors and actresses.
When Indian cinema tried to add some major to their production, they started with VFX. But Indian television daily soaps cannot do this because phir TRP kaise milegi? So, they come up with more drama and more 'stupidity'.
Here I am with such situations when Indian television took a step ahead. Among the ingredients that they added to spice-up their daily soaps, some of them were useful while some were even lamer.
C'mon, let's have a look at such instances.
Tejaswi Prakash starrer Pehredaar Piya Ki received a considerable measure of negative attention as the show's plot manages a strange romantic tale of a 9-year-old kid with an 18-year-old young lady. Sony Entertainment Television pulled off the show when viewers filed a petition against the show demanding it to ban.
A roast comedy show was held in Mumbai by All India Bakchod (AIB) starring Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor as the roast and Karan Johar as the host (roastmaster). FIR was filed against 14 persons which included filmmaker Karan Johar and actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
While many went against it, many came out in support for freedom of speech. According to the sources, makers of Qtiyapa, The Viral Fever, in a video on YouTube many broadcasted their feelings on online majority rule government, freedom of expression and freedom to see a variety of material on the web.
Intimacy for TV shows is getting as common as Bollywood.
Apart from arguments and fights, Bigg Boss with every season is getting bolder. And it is not just about one season, but most of them had contestants who got intimated on camera. It may be Ashmit Patel and Veena Mallik or Gauhar Khan and Kushal Tandon. Accept it or not, I think if there is one reason why the audience always looks forward to Bigg Boss, it is people getting intimated.
The time has changed now. The Indian television actresses who addressed stereotypical Indian Bahus and Betis are no less than any silver screen actress in titles of hotness and beauty. They are bold, open and hot. If you don't believe me, take a look at their social media profiles, and you'll get a clear idea how these television beauties totally kill people by their bikini avatars.
Now, the most absurd stuff that we have seen on our TV screens...
It isn't a big thing for Indian TV shows to cross the small line of something reasonable. They can turn women into a fly or a Naagin because for TRP, sab kuch jayaz hai!
Applying Karan Johar's formula of location shows like Beyhadh, Diya Aur Baati Hum, Bade Ache Lagte Hain or Saath Nibhana Saathiya took additional budget with its cast and flew to foreign nations to shoot a few important sequences.
The television has taken some good turns as well...
After creating title track for the show, now TV daily soaps have started creating particular verses for each episode.
I think it is right to say that now the barrier between daily soaps and Bollywood movies have disappeared. Now every other day, various superstars join the crew of some well-known TV shows in order to promote their movies.
What thoughts do you have regarding the crime related shows?
Though shows like Savadhan India are spreading awareness among the people, on the other hand, these days now even a kid doubts his father.
First, they made a gorilla fell in love with the main lead of a daily soap, then they let a lady be pregnant for a year and that too with a small bump... and don't get me started on the humshakal scenario. Indian television shows have leveled up by proving even Science wrong.
Now, it's your call to decide whether you like these daily soaps or not.
