Bade Acche Laggte Hain – Ek Saal Baad, Ek Nayi Shuruwat!

“Kehte hain na, har kahani ke 2 bhaag hote hai. Pehla aur dusra. Pehle mein sab accha hota hai. 2 log milte hai, pyaar hota hai, phir shaadi. Dusre mein sab kuch  jo kahani kabhi kahi nahi  jaati and in the end they live happily ever after.. Har kahani wohin khatam hoti hai… Aur woh kahani ka beech ka hissa hai.. wahan se kahani actually shuru hoti hai..

Confused? You should be not! Bade Acche Laggte Hain completes a year today; it’s time for celebration, to revive old cherished memories and to take a positive step forward to welcome the LEAP! 🙂

Happy 1derful B’day to Bade Acche Laggte Hain – The most popular and most talked about show on Indian Television since its inception till date! Party hard peeps! Big shout out for the entire Bade Acche Laggte Hain cast & crew- for making it possible, for the viewers- for watching it, loving it & admiring it and also for all analyzers and critics – for selling it in your own way. 😉 Well, it’s a collective team effort and everybody deserves a pat on their back. Where is the CAKE? 😀

Let’s go down the memory lane. 30th May 2011, Ekta Kapoor, Balaji Telefilms and Sony TV collectively came up with one of the most promising shows on Indian Television, Bade Acche Laggte Hain. The name soon became a household one with the promos itself. When it started, everyone was going ga-ga over it. Who thought Ram & Sakshi would make an awesome and a beautiful couple? Surely ‘K’ween of Television did! Her vision could never be questioned! Atleast, I’d never do that. Sincerely, adore her just too much for that. With every show of hers, she sets a higher bench-mark not only for others, but for her own self too. Today, Ram and Sakshi are better off known as Ram and Priya too or as fans like to call them “RaYa”. Yes, this is how fans are attached to the show. It promised to be different and a mature love story and obviously lived up to the expectations.

First took place the takraar, then engagement, then shaadi, then honeymoon, not to mention, our dear RaYa enjoyed the most Rayalicious honeymoon in Australia for good 2 weeks. It was such a delight to watch them in the beauty of Aussie. Ain’t it? Post this; their aesthetically shot consummation sequence followed by Holi and finally Priya calling her husband by his first name and not “Mr. Kapoor”! Kween Kapoor gave us almost all the fruits on the platter and now we are waiting for the cherry on the cake.

But, wait a minute; I guess the fruit platter just got over before anyone could put a cherry on it. Yes, call it a buzz, rumors or whatever, now that it is confirmed, the cat is definitely out of the bag. iDubba predicted RaYa separation which audience will see happening soon enough. But, LEAP was something which we were not expecting!

But as Harivansh Rai Bachchan has quoted “Mann ka hua toh accha hai aur agar nahi hua toh aur bhi accha hai…” Well, we should go by this, and positively accept a change with broader minds and keeping aside our wishes. If we have adored a show for a year, why not give it a second shot? Why can’t there be “ek nayi shuruwat”?

Well well well, the promo is so adorable; one can’t just get enough of it! The little baby is a complete replica of a chotu Ram Kapoor. Cuteness personified. ‘Ek Nayi Shuruwat’ is what we should be waiting for now! The storyline seems to be interesting as well as mysterious. It has definitely created an anxiety among the fans. Loads of discussion has been happening on various Television sites as well as social networking sites. The promo is a complete HIT with more than 80,000 views in less than 4 days! Do I need to say more?

Fans, be positive and enjoy a new joy ride with a new storyline and new characters. I’m sure, after seeing it, you’ll say to those adorable kiddos “Bade Acche Laggte Hain with your own RaYa…” 🙂

Cheers !!!! Happy Viewing!

Well, well, well… More than 10 shows have shown a hike! Unbelievable! Ratings have kept fluctuating since 3 weeks now. Last to last week, IPL had fallen, then it rose and this time again it has fallen. Same is the case with a few shows. Once a particular track works, ratings increase, else, vice versa. Is it too difficult to judge Indian audience? The answer lies in the question itself! Nowadays, in this fast paced life, people do not have time plus they get bored very easily. They have ‘n’ number of options. It doesn’t take any time for them to switch the channel if they do not like a particular show or its track. It takes a lot, to get your TG hooked on to your show. Curiosity works the best. It’s a tried and tested formula. Hardly goes wrong. You create some curiosity and your audience is bound to come back and watch your show the next day!
Diya Aur Baati Hum still tops the charts followed by Ek Hazaron Mein, Yeh Rishta and Balika Vadhu. EHMMBH, YRKKH and BV have shown an awesome hike in ratings! Current tracks of all 3 shows are working completely in their favor. Kudos to the team!! Also, Balika Vadhu completed 1000 episodes last week! Another milestone in the history of Indian Television after “Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka” on Sony TV and “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi” on Star Plus who respectively completed their 1000 episodes years back.
Zee TV’s Punar Vivah is going really well with the audience. This week it has also become the slot leader in 10.30 pm slot; followed by Pratigya, Bade Acche Laggte Hain and Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha.
And the much awaited ratings of Satyamev Jayate are out! Great effort by the team and I wish and hope it does bring about a change!
Last week, DID Li’l Masters ka bahot halla tha, and this week it dipped! But the kids are adorable plus, you get to watch fine performances by them!
GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs, followed by Zee TV, Sony TV and Colors respectively.
Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep supporting your favorite IPL teams.
Say, TV serials ki Jai !!!!!!

Some other reality television shows or other crime based shows and how they performed last week:

DID Li’l Masters toh chhaa gaye hain !!! Jahan dekho unka he bol-bala hai..

The show has got 6.2 TVR, which is Remarkable!

Again, I’m very happy to see so many numbers in Blue. But this time, IPL has ruled again; as you can see above, Max has the highest TRPs. Star Plus has still maintained its top position in GECs and this time have also shown a hike in its GRPs. Zee TV fans be happy; as it has gained its number 2 position after competing with Sony TV for quite some time now. Sony is now on number 3 as per GRPs, followed by colors on number 4.

Kyaa Hua Tera Vaada has picked it up so well. ‘Kaalit potna’ track managed to actually gain ratings. The current track is very interesting and it clearly depicts that audiences love it. Last to last week its rating was 1.7 which increased to 2.2 and now it’s 2.4. It has shown a consecutive hike past 3 weeks. Now, I really hope this consistency is maintained!

Shocker is, now Bade Acche Lagte Hain is not the only top show on Sony TV, it has to share its position with Kya Hua Tera Vaada. Now the big question is; will the magic of Kyunki-Kahani be recreated? Considering both the shows and the time slot 10-11 pm; will that happen? What do you think?

Sudden decline has been noticed in Tarak Mehta Ka Oooltah Chashma on Sab TV. The creative team needs to show something very different and not make it so monotonous every week.

Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behena Hai, Saathiya and Yeh Rishta have managed to increase. Last week’s decline helped them to come up with newer tracks and a fast pace story which has been witnessed today in terms of ratings. Good Job!

Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep supporting your favorite IPL teams.

Some other reality television shows and how they performed last week:

I feel really good to see maximum numbers in BLUE!!! Ratings of your favorite shows have increased 🙂

  • Diya Baati Aur Hum has regained its ratings of 5.0 and still there are 100 percent chances of increasing it next week; as Mr. Amir Khan will be making a special appearance on the show in order to promote his own offereing ‘Satyamev Jayate’ starting 6th May, Sunday, 11 am.
  • While, Saathiya fans might be sad as the ratings have kept on declining for a while now. But nevertheless, I’m sure writers are working hard to gain back it’s number 1 position. Let’s wait and watch how soon that happens!
  • The new show Ek Dusre Se Karte Hain Pyar Hum which replaced Sasural Genda Phool has got an opening of 1.9; while Sasural Genda Phool ended with 2.2. Let’s see next week, how the show helps Star Plus in TRP charts!

Remarkable increase has been seen in Kyaa hua Tera Vaada -2.2 (1.7). Balaji is rocking with all 4 on-air shows of them! Last week Bade Acche Lagte Hain showed a hike of 0.4 and this week it’s Kya Hua Tera Vaada with a hike of 0.5. Time to celebrate! They’ve also done quite good promotions on Sony Max during IPL matches. The promos of Kya Hua Tera Vaada and Bade Achhe Lagte Hain were and are really rocking! But I guess it has declined IPL ratings! Is this the case? Do you feel airing promos of Sony TV’s serials and increase in their ratings is the reason for IPL ratings to decline? IPL saw considerable loss in GRPs of Max. It is 299 this week in comparison to 344 last week.

@undercoverpro smartly tweeted: “Nice Ratings management. Max loses 40 odd points and Sony gains about the same. It’s like Transfer Pricing.”

GRP wise Sony happily regained its number 2 position back and has given tough competition to Star Plus. There is just 15 points of difference between the two. This gap can be filled with such awesome content of the shows.

Well, that’s it for today. Sony TV fans Rejoice! All the best to all GEC’s as well as IPL. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep supporting your favorite IPL teams.

Say, Jai TV serials ki!!!
