Lately, Indian television is airing some shows that will require high tolerance on your end. The content is nothing but the dumbest concept of saas-bahu struggles that was introduced by Ekta Kapoor with the shows like Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Kyunki SaasBhiKabhiBahuThi. Since then, the small screen has been overflowing more of the same nonsense ‘dramas’.
The success of those shows had led the makers into believing that mindless melodrama is the magic ingredient that could keep the show going and hence we keep on having that again and again.
The following listed TV Soaps are few of those endless ones whose continuity is highly questionable for more reasons than one:
- Balika Vadhu
The serial took off as an unbeaten fighter of girl child’ rights and totally focused at featuring the problems and issues of child marriage. It became a daily routine in Indian households and the actors received much appreciation for their performances. However, today it is no different from the rest of the stuff we have on TV. Rather, it is just full of stereotypes.
- Sasuraal Simar Ka
This show is just not ending and the name is now interchangeable with problems and vamps. There are people who believe that this show should not only be banned but the makers should be sentenced to punishment for torturing the viewers!
- Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai
There is nothing but leaps in this serial. There was a point where it was a household name but now it is just stretched on and on.
- Saath Nibhaana Saathiya
A typical Saas-Bahu story where the Saas treats her Bahu as if she is a maid and the expressionless Bahu who allows herself to be treated so. This one is yet another never ending serial, which is full of mindless crap.
- Kumkum Bhagya
Most of the Indian daily soaps are making cheating in a marriage their TRPs.KumkumBhagya is EktaKapoor’s yet another serial whose content will leave you feeling that there can be nothing more stupid than this.
- Big Boss
Though it might be one of the highly rated shows in terms of TRPs, there is a big section of viewers who feel that it is totally scripted. Starting with the controversial contestants to the discussions regarding per episode amount charged by Salman Khan, the show is in limelight because of many wrong reasons.
- Yeh Hai Mohabbatein
This particularly addresses the child abuse issue that the Censor Board always has a problem with. The way the mother is shown to use her children in her evil plans is outrageous. Women are demeaned and disrespected. The show is offensive on so many levels that it’s unbelievable.
- Crime Patrol
Thia show basically aims on telling you that they show the real cases which have taken place in India but little do they tell you about the disclaimer which says they fictionalize the cases, add certain elements to increase the entertainment value of the show.They clearly misguide you in name of real cases.
- Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani
The show started off with great ratings and once was one of the most watched shows in 2015. However, due to poor and very repetitive tracks, it slowly lost its grip. There were rumors that the show will go off the air, but that hasn’t happened yet.
Swaragini is the story about two step- sisters who have a good relationship with each other and are bestest of friends. However, the plot would make you wonder how can anyone life’s be so full of problems.
While almost all of the above shows were quite popular during their early days, it’s high time that the makers understand that the audience does get fed up!
