Can Sony retain the viewership after KBC? [two new shows on air]

After the huge success of Kaun Banega Crorepati (Season 5), Sony introduced 2 new shows on the same prime time slot last week. The new shows, “Parvarrish” and “Dekha Ek Khwab” both belong to Drama genre that premiered on Monday. Where KBC Season 5 has put Sony on the top of the list of channels with highest TRPs, it will be a challenge for the channel to maintain the same position.

Let’s give you a short synopsis of the shows:

Parvarrish – Kuchh Khatti Kuchh Meethi is a family drama about two sisters – Sweety Ahluwalia and Pinky Ahuja. They compete as rivals to become better parents. Both families have different sets of beliefs and approach to raise their kids. Pinky believes in becoming friend with her children while Sweety believes in becoming a disciplinary mother. It is a story based on depiction of parent-child relationship. The show is about nurturing, supporting and guiding children in different walks of life. One can experience their own thoughts and beliefs of parenting through Parvarrish. There are different sets of parents everywhere and their varied approach about upbringing their kids and that makes it easier for viewers to connect with the roles portrayed.

Dekha Ek Khwab is about the lead character Muniya (Priyal Gor), a simple down to earth girl who wishes for her own princess story. Somewhere in us all of us have for us a large dream. A dream we visit now and then secretly. A dream which we ourselves believe is out of our reach. But when dreams come true overnight they bring with them a set of challenges, complications and difficult decisions. Muniya’s dream of turning into a princess has come true, thanks to Rajmata Mrinalini Devi and Maharaj Brijraj Singh. But will her luck stick around for long?

The concept of Parvarrish is simple yet attention-grabbing, however the way show is being treated with few overboard performances it is difficult to say anything about the success of the show. The positive point is that this show caters to a lager section of audience in respect to age.

Dekha ek Khwab on the other hand disappoints as it seems to be coming out straight as a poor inspiration of the show “Princess Diaries”. The show doesn’t have anything exceptional or original contrary to what makers have been talking about it. The show started on a low note and with some poor performances, it fails to impress at all.

However, the other prime time fiction shows on Sony like Bade Ache Lagte Hai,Saas Bina Sasural and the recently launched Kuch Toh Log Kahenge have gained massive popularity with the viewers. The bosses of Sony Entertainment Television will be sorely disappointed because it might get difficult to retain its leadership position on the top.
