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! 🙂

Satyamev Jayate 5th episode reviews and reactions – “Where is the love?”

“Satyamev Jayate” episode after episode it’s creating a lot of buzz (on iDubba the show commands 5/5 ratings from 89 users and has received 41 reviews) and audiences have been exposed to the real world out there. The show is almost a mirror which is showing us the bitter truth of the society that we live in and just to take this to the next level, it was time for the 5th episode of “Satyamev Jayate” .The earlier 4 episodes were about Female foeticideChild sexual abuse and Marriages and dowry harassment and  Does Healthcare Need Healing? So it was time to focus on the 5th social evil of our very own society.

The show started with a famous sher “Ishq Par Zor Nahin Hai Yeh Woh Aatish `Ghalib’”. And to add to that an 82 yr old (young) man did say Mohabbat ki nahi jaati ho jaati hain. Aamir did mention about the films that we watch and the romance that is created. But the main aspect was about the real life romance and love. The first story was about a married couple running for cover despite protection order. The story was a about two families and two people who fall in love. You might have guessed the story as it happens in the movies, but in real life it’s totally shocking.  Lokendra & Fehmida have lived in fear for the past 2 years without support from the police.

You might think that at least these two are alive and living their life, wait till you hear the next story about Priyanka and Rizwan, and their tragic ending. In this case Rizwan was not lucky enough to live with his love. Based on the story narrated by Rizwan’s Aami, you might ask yourself “What is the honor in killing someone..that too for falling in love?” Tears were just trickling down of Rizwan’s mother and from most of the audience in the studio. It is strange that Indian families like all the love stories & all the romantic songs from old movies but they can’t accept love marriage. If Priyanka’s family didn’t have so much hatred, Rizwan’s mother says she’d have her son & daughter-in-law with her today.

The first two stories were of two people falling in love who were for two different cast. But the next story was about two people of the same cast, but Manoj & Babli were killed brutally for marrying within the gotra. And to add more to this pain, Manoj’s family was threatened with death & ostracized from the community for filing a FIR.  But Seema , Chandravati & Jagmati . 3 women have stood against unimaginable odds, Khap Panchayat – HaryanaIs. Is this our real society is!!!

The show always talks about the problems and the evils of the issues that are being raised every week, but as always also talks about how we, we the people can discuss the issues and be a solution to our problems. And soon it was time for Aamir to speak to Khap panchayat members and know their opinions. It was shocking to hear their views and their thoughts. They refuse to believe in the Indian Law and make their own decisions and khap panchayat says that media reports about punishment meted out by them are false. Do you agree??

To have a detailed discussion on this issue, Aamir invited Dr. D. R. Chaudhuri and he was of the opinion that traditions can change with the need of the times. And there was also a shocking statistics that there are 25-30 cases coming everyday for police protection. Based on the stories you might think that such stories mostly happen in and around Harayana, but this is not the case. There are thousands of such cases from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

Soon Sanjay ji the founder of Love Commondo was invited and he opened with the statement “Pyaar karna paap nahi hai aur virodhi hamara baap nahi hai“. He mentioned that if a 18 yr old can choose the PM of our country, cant they choose their love !!!! So the question is Do you think inter-caste marriages should be encouraged to prevent the country’s fragmentation? Now it was time for the 5th song of this series and as always some amazing melody by Ram Sampath and Swanand Kirkire.

IPL 5 is over and its best positive effect has been witnessed in Diya Aur Baati Hum ratings! It had lot of drama last week and performances of lead actors were worth all praises. Surprisingly even with most interesting matches in its last week, Max ratings decreased!

Bade Acche Laggte Hain completed one year today. Last year the show was launched with great promotions and high expectations. And for a while, it lived up to it too but now the tables have turned. There is lot of happening on its front and a time leap is expected in the show sometime in mid June. Let’s wait and watch what ‘different’ or ‘new’ stuff is in stored for the audience.

Little presence of Barun Sobti aka Arnav in Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon has got little increase in the ratings. Barun, your fans love you a lot, and we wish you finish your movie shoot ASAP, so you can stop playing hide and seek in your show. 😉

Latest offering by Zee TV, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke which replaced Choti Bahu season 2, has got an opening of 1.6 which is OK. The promos were good, first week story was more of establishment of characters and gradual story progression. The show does look promising. All the best to the team!

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

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!

Satyamev Jayate 4th episode reviews and reactions – “Does Healthcare Need Healing?”

It was time for the 4th episode of Satyamev Jayate and time for one more social issue. The earlier 3 episodes were about Female foeticideChild sexual abuse and Marriages and dowry harassment. Hence as expected the 4th episode too was about serious issues that we are facing in our daily lives. The audience was eagerly waiting to know about this episode and it was about “Doctors and their intentions”.

The show started with Aamir Khan talking about health and how important it is for us. He had invited youngsters who want to become doctors. Most of them said that they want to serve the people who cannot get quality health care facilities in India. The show started with a shocking story of Venkatesh and Arvind and their story about how the treatment went wrong. Venkatesh lost his toe, more than Rs 2 lakh towards treatment & underwent severe trauma and Arvind developed a fear of doctors due to being misdiagnosed and forced to spend 1.4lac. How often do we hear this? I guess most of us might have heard it from friends or relatives who have gone through this. After hearing this it is obvious that you might ask this question “Has the noble profession of medicine lost its nobility?”

There was a shocking revelation that Doctors were asking for 40 to 50% commission to refer patients to path labs. And Aamir did also share a term called “Basin test”. In this the doctors refer patients for a blood test, even though it was not required and the blood given as sample was literary thrown in the basin. Yes Basin. There was also a story of Dr. Pichad who initially did resort to malpractices to run his lab, but he changed his stance later despite losses. Wait till you hear this “Dr. Pandit says big hospitals encouraged him to scare patients into opting for treatment” and he had to leave India because it was against his ethics to agree to what he was told. Shocking? Once again the audience in the studio was shocked to hear such stories. Are our doctor’s really becoming SICK?

Soon it was time to hit the nail on the head. Aamir had invited ProfK.K.Talwar who is the Chairman, Board of Governors of Medical Council of India. And it was time to ask tough questions and show the real world.

How many licences have been cancelled permanently for medical malpractices? The answer is Zero since 2008. And on the other hand almost 60-80 licences have been cancelled in England. So does this mean that Doctors in England are worst that the ones in India? There was one more issue that was raised “Capitation fees for medical colleges”. Do you think the high amount of capitation fees for medical colleges is responsible for this issue? No wonder Doctors end up trying to recover the money that was invested.

PS: Aamir did repeat many times that the idea is not to defame the doctors but to ensure that the doctors give justice to their profession.

Dr. Gulati says that more government hospitals need to be set up & medical care needs to be given top priority. And soon Aamir was ready with statistics about Medical Colleges in India. Guess What? In 2001 there were 31 Government Medical colleges in India and 106 Private Medical Colleges in India. Strange? 

Dr. Gulati says that 6% of GDP must be spent on health care for medical care to be given to all, like Belgium does. And India spends 1.4% on the GDP on Health Care. Dr. Devi Shetty was also invited to talk about the programs that they are currently running successfully. Dr.Devi Shetty’s Yashaswini scheme no doubt is a super example of coming together and support each other’s healthcare needs.

The show always talks about the problems and the evils of the issues that are being raised every week, but as always also talks about how we, we the people can discuss the issues and be a solution to our problems. No doubt being a Doctor is a very Nobel profession but now a days it’s a business and many are misleading their patients. Now it was time for the 4th song of this series with some amazing melody by Ram Sampath and Suresh Bhatia. I’m sure that the audience who watched the show on their television sets must have gone through some of these cases. Be it visiting the doctor, or buying expensive medicines or paying extra money as donation to the medical colleges. But it is in our hands to stay safe and be aware of the events around us.

Even though IPL matches were interesting and there was a lot of buzz about match fixing; it’s steady in terms of the ratings. Surprisingly Life Ok’s Mahadev has gone up immensely; from 1.1 to 2.3. That’s an awesome hike! It took Life Ok to another level altogether, and the difference is noticeable in its GRPs. Even Saubhagyavato Bhava rose to 1.4 from 1.1. Kudos to life Ok team!

Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon and Pratigya have dropped dramatically! Seems like, Mr. Barun Sobti’s MIA trick is not working in favor of Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon. And about Pratigya, well, there has to be less of drama and more of story to keep people hooked on.

Sony TV’s over all GRPs has decreased and there are only 2 shows with good ratings viz. Kya Huaa Tera Vaada and Bade Acche Laggte Hain. Rest all shows have low ratings and nothing exciting to look forward to in terms of the content.

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs, followed by Zee TV, Colors and Sony TV respectively. Few weeks back, Sony was on number 2, then number 3 and now it’s on number 4.

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. As it’s the last week of IPL 5.

KKR fans are on a super high as the team has qualified for the finals!

Say, IPL ki Jai and next week Tata Bye-Bye..!!! 🙂

Satyamev Jayate 3rd episode reviews, reactions and Video (Marriages and dowry harassment )

It was time for the entire nation to find out about the 3rd social evil that our society is living with, you can also say that we are used to this issue. As always the suspense was kept till the last minute about last episode of Satyamev Jayate that aired yesterday. There was also a short promo that showed Aamir talking about about the passion of Indians. And then on Sunday he revealed the issue,  Indian marriages and the evils of dowry harassment.

Did you know that the earlier two episodes that dealt with social issues like female infanticide and child abuse, had marked a milestone with 90 million viewer ship, which is the highest ever for any Indian TV Show.

The 3rd eposide was about the custom of demanding dowry from a bride’s family when a wedding is fixed has been prevalent in India for several decades. You might say that is a well know fact and everyone knows that it happens almost everywhere in India. Well this event often takes an evil turn when the bride is tortured or killed just because her family is unable to meet  demands from the in-laws. As shown in the previous episodes there are laws in India about this but this social evil continues to flourish.

In this eposide there was a sense of keeping the shock value down, yet it managed to make an impact on the audience. As you might have noticed that there were a lot of young people in the audience in yesterday’s episode. May be Aamir and team were trying to send a message to the youth about this important issue. The show did focus on the ways to combat this evil and made a lot of emphasis that best way to do this is by empowering women. Also it was evident that Aamir did not want to hold anyone guilty nor did he mention about the Indian Laws unlike previous eposides. But he stronlgy feels that families and the members of each and every community must come together and take a stand against it.

As always the guests and the stories shown in the show are very shocking and one of the guest just kept asking one question “Is this the kind of society we live in?

Every Sunday there is a lot of activity in the world of twitter about the show and the topic. Following are some of the tweets related to yesterday’s topic :

Sagarika Ghose ‏@sagarikaghose

Satyamev Jayate was very good again today. The plight of abandoned NRI brides told sensitively. A true hero @aamir_khan

KABIR BEDI ‏@iKabirBedi

I have never taken, or given, #dowry. But a seismic change in old beliefs must happen for Indians to reject it @smjindia

Satyamev Jayate ‏@smjindia

#RaniTripathi says, she can do everything a man can & more, then why should she pay #dowry?

Satyamev Jayate ‏@smjindia

“No band, no baaja, no baraat”, a Tanzeem Khuddam-E-Millat initiative says marriages should be simple without #dowry

Do let us know your views about this Big Fat Indian Wedding and the ill effects of the same. Also let us know if you felt that the shock value was a bit limited in the 3rd episode compared to the 1st two episodes.

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 !!!!!!
