TV shows- the mindlessness of India!

How meaningless can Indian TV shows get?

How meaningless can Indian TV shows get?

Once upon a time, we loved the TV. Doordarshan or even the early days of cable TV, we were immersed. All those old shows and little comedy serials (where no judge sat and did THE hahahah!), would win our hearts. Waiting a week for them was no less than a task but it was totally worth it when the episode was broadcasted.

But then came year 2000 and every thing changed. Literally. Shows became a Monday to Thursday then Friday and then even Saturday affair as if the torture in office alone was not enough. And do you know the worst part? Everyone on the family enjoys those typical over the top drama, repetitive angles, loud voices, complicated relationships and mind games then blame games. Ain't life already full of too many problems to take care of that even these were added?

The drama serials, the reality shows and even the cartoons for kids have become utter stupid. No stories, no morals, only uninterrupted senseless drama that took the absent mindedness to another level.

.

The in laws are portrayed as if they are the most evil people on the earth and their daughter in law, the perfect 'bahu.' Seriously?

While the families in real prefer being friendlier with one other, these guys are adamant on going more orthodox and creating dramas that are sometimes week long and which continue forever. Daughter in laws are being treated as the part of the family nowadays where as these people are stuck on the same chord. What is it that one gains out of making such bad examples?

.

Nobody behaves like these people anymore. The full made up, caked up faces with ornaments from a jewellery advertisement, heavy sarees worn all day and talks so loud that can pierce your ear drums. It is like being hurt by two arrows- one in eyes and another in ears!

.

How many times can we be changed or re-incarnated? It all depends on the love of the public in form of TRPs. This is perhaps the most shocking ideology.

A is dead.

Hue and cry, a dead body covered from head to toe, identification very difficult.

Some years pass.

Voila! A is back. The plane crashed but he survived and was on a remote island all these years. All are happy.

Now enter the problem- he had lost his memory so he ended up marrying another woman and now has a child from her!

And more countless crap! We would definitely not love to meet the writers!

.

What'e even funnier? The fact that the lead actor is a heart throb of all and has a typical girl who is behind him from ages. Now this vamp as we know her is shown to be the cruelest of the species and is always in awe of too many mindgames, happens to have a signature background score, dresses skimpy (even in the case of saree where the blouse is almost absent if shown to be sanskari), is loved by the hero's mother and she is so revenge seeking that she even plots murders! Woah!

.

And the never ending sadness and tears? We do not even wish to touch that topic. The serials are so gloomy that the lead actors go through the most struggles at one point of time. They will turn poorest at one minutes, someone will dies, there will be no food, no job, no car, no hospital, no place to stay, no relatives and friends and after a few episodes, bang!They are rich again.

My dill goes arrrrggghhhhh....

.

One another typical slot being that the couple who is dipped in love, gets married, has misunderstandings due to their family and divorces. They then marry different individuals but end up meeting each other almost every other day and then the flashback starts. Why Lord why?

.

What intrigues us more is that the child of the good couple will be even better and the one from the evil couple will bring hell on earth and find the good couple's child and trap her/ him. Who has all that time? To top it, the child from the joint family and good couple side will face more troubles than what his/ her parents did. Is there a rule or something?

.

The superstitions are back in vogue too! Logic just died!

.

The length? Years and years! Ages- 150 years to 5 years! Everyone!

Phew!

And the Indian Reality Tv Shows?
