Time pass/Time waste

I really don’t understand how can anyone watch these serials.Serials like choti bahu,Pratigya,Pavitra rishtey and many more.I agree people who are retired and want to pass their time by watching these serials. These serials producers are minting money.In some telugu channels a question is asked after the end of each episode and they will send one pattu (silk) saree for each winner chosen in a draw.I just hate to watch these serials.

The most common things i have noticed are :-

All the females wear cheap designer sarees/outfits

All wear high heels in the house

All the married females wear those black beeds chains

There is always a vamp who wants to spoil the relationship between a newly married couples.

All the actors go to sleep with their shirts tucked in.

All the stories revolve around the same plot.

There is always a granny in all the serials who holds the beads and does jap.

Most of the families live in palatial houses.

There is always a bahu (d-law) who is snubbed.

Each scene has a different back ground music.  And this back ground music makes people run to the TV not to miss the scene.

Most of the actors and actress participate in reality shows.

I don’t know how much these serials reflect the society…..

PS:- This post was there in my drafts since long. Uma post made me to post this.

  1. I hate these serials too… whats worse is at any point of time I am forced to watch them… I can turn up and actually guess what is going to happen… they are so predicatble too !

    better to watch the comedy soaps or maybe the detective types… but these family drama’s seriously suck !

  2. What you say is right, Saritha! They come out from their bedrooms with high heel chappals! The women work in the kitchen even though they live in palatial houses with full make up…expensive looking cheap sarees, cheap jewellery etc.

    With all these, I watch ‘Balika Vadhu’ and like it! Nothing else!

  3. I can add a few more to your list

    (1) The heroine goes to bed with designer saree and jewellery on

    (2) There is one single expression on the actors’ faces when they are sad, surprised, elated, angry…or feeling any other emotion

    (3) The camera keeps panning on their faces when there is no expression

    (4) The heroine is a superwoman – an excellent housewife, mother, daughter, housemaid, cook, sister, s-i-l and d-i-l , all rolled into one

    (5) You just have to give them a chance to distrust the other and all the characters jump into the fray

    (6) The vamp/villain is always smarter and more gorgeous than the hero/heroine

    Oh I can go on…

  4. hehehehehe.. My first time here Saritha. Came through Swaram’s blog – can’t agree more.
    As a family we did not watch much TV other than cricket, news, cartoons and the like. I do have aunts watchign some of the serials you mentioned and I wodner pretty much along the same lines.
    also, have you noticed that the bigger the bindi and more intricate, the more evil the villain is? Something that summers at an elderly aunt’s place taught me. But yeah, she is retired and says she watches it to kill time 🙂

  5. 😆
    you nailed it!!!

    LOL @ ‘All the actors go to sleep with their shirts tucked in.’
    so true!!! 😀

    I don’t watch any of those serials!! Thankfully, we haven’t subscribed to any of the Indian channels here!! 😀

  6. ha ha…made me laugh reading this post, what you wrote is true, too much makeup, too many sentiments, dramatizing every scene, trying to make the viewers emotional every episode, all that is far from reality!! I simply walk out of the room when people get carried away on an emotional journey, watching the daily soaps. 🙂
