Ratings today – Haven’t juggled a lot.

Diya Aur Baati Hum still manages to be at number 1 position but this time it has fallen! Its ratings are really unpredictable. Last to last week it was 5.0, then last week 5.6 and this week again 5.0. Agree, it’s consistently on number one, but this much difference in ratings?

Jhalak Dikhla Ja’s second week has also been so-so, nothing great; neither in terms of performances nor in terms of the ratings!

Byah Hamari Bahu Ka finishes a month and finally there is a 0.1 rise in ratings of the show. But, viewers are in here for a major twist to be revealed – aakhir kab tak chupayenge ki kyun ho raha hai byah hamari bahu ka? Wait for the mystery to unveil!

Pavitra Rishta has managed to pick up, finally the big drama sold off! Even Balika Vadhu managed to pick up really well. It has helped Colors in GRPs as well.

In 10.30 pm slot, Punar Vivah and Pratigya are still ruling and Bade Acche Lagte Hain fans are not so happy with this! My message to all Bade Acche Lagte Hain fans, please try to enjoy the show and wait for ‘ek nayi shuruwat’, do not lose hope, you might not know, it just become BIGGER and BETTER!

Pyaar Ka Dard Hain – meetha meetha pyaara pyaara opened with the same ratings with which Sajda Tere Pyaar Mein ended – 1.5. Not that great opening as per Star Plus!

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Colors, Zee and Sony. There’s just negligible difference between Zee and Colors channels and both are competing for number 2 positionSony has been consistently falling and this time it’s a huge fall for it! Buck up Sony team!

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!

Ratings today – Have juggled a lot!

It’s party time for Diya Aur Baati Hum team as well as fans! It has regained its 5.6 ratings and more the drama, more the ratings. Aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya!

Jhalak Dikhla Ja opened with 3.1 which is considerably good! So, let’s see will the shaking of celebs shake the TRPs too?

The third week of Madhubala and Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka has not been that good for them. Ratings have gone down. In Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, there is no clarity as to what is happening or what is about to happen; the story is just going nowhere. Sincerely, time for some major twist in the tale! Madhubala has not been able to live up to its expectations and that’s why it’s obvious for the ratings to decline.

Surprise package was Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuyeh on Zee TV. It has gone up to 2.7. Wishing all the best to the team to maintain it!

After almost, 3 weeks or even more, Bade Acche Lagte Hain (Sony TV) had regained the ratings of 3.1, had also become a slot leader in 10.30 PM slot, last week! But what happened now? It is no more the slot leader…Punar Vivah and Pratigya both are at top most position with same ratings of 3.0! This is a huge fall for Bade Acche Laggte Hain. There was a huge outrage even on this baseless courtroom drama which audience did not like it at all. But nevertheless, we shall look forward to ‘ek nayi shuruwat’, I’m sure, ratings will soar then!

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Colors, Zee and Sony. There’s just negligible difference between Zee and Colors and both are competing for number 2 position. Sony has been consistently falling and this time it’s a huge fall for it! Buck up Sony team!

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!

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 !!!

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!

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!

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..!!! 🙂

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! 🙂

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 !!!!!!
