Indian TV projects unhappy lives- Do you agree?

Sounds strange? Surprised? Well, this is just a statement made by one of the most successful film director and producer. But do you think he is right is saying “Indian TV projects unhappy lives”? Some of you might agree, some might not. Also i am sure that there will also be a section that might not like to accept this harsh reality. Well by now you might have been eagerly waiting to find out who has made such a statement. Here you go, it’s our very own “KJo” aka Karan Johar.
You will soon be able to see him back on television as a judge for “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa“. So what does he exactly mean by this statement? In one of the interviews he was asked “How aware are you of TV content? And this is what his answer was –
I know it because when I have dinner with my mother, I watch them all. I know exactly what’s happening in “Pavitra Rishta“, I know that “Bade Achche Lagte Hain” is going to take a leap, and I know the trauma going on in “Balika Vadhu“, the trauma that went through “Uttaran“, and I know all the problems that go on in these shows because I spend the maximum time with my mother between 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., which is when she watches all this.”

But the real question is that is it right to talk about television, when almost similar drama is been served in Bollywood? It’s a tough question to ask. But off lately Television has taken its content and quality to the next level. Although there might be some shows that still run the old fashioned drama, but majority of them have moved on with the time. Shows such as “Pavitra Rishta“, “Bade Achche Lagte Hain” are setting a trend and creating their loyal audience base. You might question that they too took help of the “Leap Factor” to regenerate the interest of their audiences, but that is the need of the hour. The same is also true for Bollywood, when all you can see south remakes, one after another. After a time this formula might not work, but it is so far so good.

There are eras that come and go, some shows are successful and some fail. Some try to add in loads of emotional content in order to ensure that the audiences will connect with their story. Indian audience have been through Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kahani Ghar Ghar ki era and they have also been through the trauma in the shows such as  Balika Vadhu and Uttaran. But such shows have also delivered a strong message to the society and with an emotional quotient. So can we say that Indian Television projects unhappy lives? Well you can’t rule out the fact that such shows are Prime Time Shows 😉
