Ratings today – interesting also, not so interesting also!
The second week of Madhubala and Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka has not been that good for them. Ratings have gone down. In Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, the curiosity of the title has yet not been revealed and still the establishment of the base is going on! It’s been 2 weeks now, story has to move forward! Madhubala’s week 2, was so far so good. It has lots of drama yet to be unfolded. Let’s see what twists and turns next week follows; in terms of show as well as ratings!
After opening 11 pm slot and shifting Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, show enjoyed a great jump in the ratings and now its job is to maintain it and increase it. But, seems, the current story is not liked by the audience. Time for a reality check, team!
Also, Sab TV launched its new show along with Hats off “Bhai Bhaiyya aur Brother” and sadly, it has also opened with 0.4 that is very low! Let’s see how next week shapes up! The promos seem funny but not that hilarious too!
After almost, 3 weeks or even more, Bade Acche Lagte Hain (Sony TV) has regained the ratings of 3.1, has also become a slot leader in 10.30 PM slot! After all the leap promos and Priya going to Jail, Niharika’s truth revelation; high pitched drama has got ratings! Kudos to the team! Fans, be happy and wait for some more OTT drama of accident sequence in the upcoming episodes!
Mahadev on Life Ok has increased to 2.1 from 1.6! After the sati track, this Parvati track is also loved by the audience. Way to go !!!
GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Zee TV, Sony and Colors.
There’s just negligible difference between the three channels and everyone is fighting for number 2 position.
Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep yourself entertained!

Too many things happened in last week! Sony TV opened 11 PM slot and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge is shifted to the same. It gained 1.4 ratings. A superb answer to all those who thought the show will not work. Interesting step!

Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka which replaced Kuch Toh Log Kahenge did not quite live up to the expectations in terms of ratings. It is too low for the opening week. Well, the show is practically good, all the best to the team. Wish next week brings out the maximum ratings!

Madhubala- Ek Ishq Ek Junoon on Colors TV, which replaced Veer Shivaji got an awesome opening of 2.8; spontaneously super hit! The entire concept, execution and editing has been crisp and interesting. Let’s see how far it takes colors TV in terms of GRPs. But, as per first week, the show is a HIT HIT!

Indian Idol opened with 2.1. Again, it was not as per expectations according to the intriguing and heart touching promos. Last week was a major one for Sony TV; too many new steps taken by them, one turned out to be great, others not so great! Also, it lost GRPs as well.

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; Zee TV has again regained its number 2 position, followed by Colors and Sony TV.

Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep yourself entertained! 🙂

Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka – First Week, First Look!

“De re na na na … ra ri raa ra ra ra ra ra…” 

Mind blowing MUSIC!

The blissful and soul touching music of the show is a master piece. One can’t just get enough of it. After really long time, the music of any show on Indian Television has been remarking! Background music is something without which the show will not be able to create its impact on the minds of the audience and I’m very proud to say that Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka team has absolutely HIT the jackpot in this term. The music of the show is a complete 10/10 for me!

Caring & Cute CHARACTERS!

Baa is a typical Gujju character and almost every household in Gujarat would be able to relate to it. Maa and Papa are very humble, down to earth and have warm feelings for their family. Maa has her own way of respecting elders and teaching youngsters to do the same. She wants best for her family and her kids. Even if she’d hurt someone, she’d not hesitate to ask for forgiveness. And that’s the best thing about her character. Her takiyakalam is “sahi kahaa baa aapne’. The little sister is too cute for words. Servants in the house are also typically gujju and ‘bhawai’ is something which is funny to watch! Krish on the other side is a complete modern person with rooted traditions in his mind. Paulomi is modern, broad minded, sensible, little childish (situational) but completely adorable. She shares a great chemistry with her mom which is outstanding! Many people will be able to relate to their emotional mother-daughter bonding. The research effort is clearly depicted on-screen, with the peculiar nuances of all characters.

Splendid SET!

The house (interior + exterior) is just GREAT! Right from the small thing to any big thing, detailed description in terms of screenplay is maintained. Color co-ordination, neatness, soothing properties and overall it does not look FAKE. Set design and art direction add a lot to the flavour of the show.

Curious CONTENT!

Writer Aatish Kapadia says, “Usually, a title gives away the concept of the show, but this one’s unique. It makes the viewers question it and builds curiosity.” And Producer JD Majethia adds, “This is a unique show with fresh content, characters and great performances. It’s a show of ‘today’ which will also attract the youth along with the family audience.”

Shows based on Gujarati culture are often a ‘safe’ game. Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka is a Gujarati family story based in Baroda (Gujarat). The family is conservative but progressive. They all have a family business under the name “Kanahaiya Dairy Ltd.” Krish and Paulomi are business partners as well. Their friendship is more like Rahul and Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Sure thing! The storyline so far has been simple yet interesting. The unfolding love of Paulomi for Krish has been revealed and Krish doesn’t know of his feelings yet. But he does sure likes her and that’s why agrees to get married to her. But he doesn’t want to hurt his mother’s feelings as he is also a mumma’s boy. So, he is ready to meet different girls for an arrange marriage in the “Vivah Aayojan”. Mumma, here, does know of the girl’s feelings, but doesn’t want to accept it until and unless her own son comes up to her and tells her the same. As according to her, she is not the right choice for this family’s BAHU to be.

Hatss off always comes up with path breaking concepts. They truly live up to the saying “the toughest talk can also be simplified and broadcasted!” Hats off to Hats off!

Sony TV’s next SUPER HIT!

Hats off to Sony TV for always trying and experimenting new and fresh content! I’m in love with your conviction for your shows and by offering Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka you have won not only mine, but a lot of other hearts too! It sure is a keeper in your kitty and it is going to be a splendid HIT.

So, how will Krish get married to her soul mate Rajnibala? What will happen to Paulomi then? Why Rajnibala will be remarried? All these questions shall be answered with the gradual progression of the story! But even after all this sorted stuff, “kyun ho raha hai vaishnav parivaar mein byaah unki bahu ka?

Jaanne ke liye dekhiye Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka on Sony TV, Monday to Friday at 8.00 PM.

Cheers !!!

TV ‘shows’ must go on!!!

Ever wondered, how many TV shows have shut in past 2 months? Let’s put some light on it and see who replaced who!

Off Air Shows Replaced By
Maryada (Star Plus)
Sasural Genda Phool (Star Plus) Ek Dusre Se Karte Hain Pyar Hum
I Love My India (Sab TV) Bhai, Bhaiyya aur Brother
Ram Milaye Jodi (Zee TV) Phir Subah Hogi
Choti Bahu (Zee TV) Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke
Havan (Colors) Kairi – Rishta Khatta Meetha
Laado (Colors) Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha
Zindagi Kahe.. Smile Please (Life Ok) Aasman Se Aage
Meri Maa (Life Ok) Amrit Manthan

Above all shows ended with very low ratings, except Sasural Genda Phool. But Sasural Genda Phool team along with Star team felt it’s good to end up a show on a high note rather than unnecessarily dragging it. But, one just cannot blame ratings for the same. There are a lot of other issues to be dealt with while making a TV show. And to shut it, is a big decision for channel as well as the producers. Soaps are such, one track doesn’t work and the story is changed. After a while, the original plot or the crux of the show is lost. This has been witnessed in a lot of shows. And that could be one of the major reasons for them to shut. Moreover, creatives can’t experiment a lot these days as they all have to work with lot of limitations.

Also, as Imagine TV shut, its all 5 shows shut too! 14 shows being shut in a span of 2 months and a few new ones have already replaced them. So, what happens next? A few new ones are in pipeline which will be launched post IPL; such as, Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, Indian Idol and post that KBC on Sony TV. Also, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’s next season is around the corner, but this time on Colors.

There are rumors about Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya (Star Plus) and Shubh Vivah on (Sony) soon to go off air. Nothing has been official about it, but there have been talks about it. As they say, there is no smoke without fire. So, which shows will replace them? Will the new shows be able to garner the same ratings for the channel or prove to be otherwise?

My question for you all is –

What kind of shows you’d like to watch? What kind of quality would you prefer? Do you want any sequels? If, yes, which ones?

Till then, do enjoy watching your own favorite shows with their own twists and tadkas in it! 🙂
