Keep in mind the time when evening meal had not been served at home before 11 PM because your mother did not want to miss the episode of Kyunki Software Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi? Or remember enough time when your dad answered every question that Amitabh Bachchan asked the contestants of Kaun Banega Crorepati? Or perhaps those occasions when grandmums thought that her four sons signified the character types of Kahaani Ghar Ki?
Yes, these are all the unforgettable memories that were, and even now, tag the power of Hindi Tv shows and what it has done to all of us in the the past few years. Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi
All of us Indians are always at the top of the emotional quotient and anything at all that strikes our mental chords would be a quick hit. That is why, family soaps have maintained to hook up in people, which in return gave the shows their TRP’s, honours and the tag to be the most successful show in the Indian television set history.
Similar is the situation with reality shows. The group cried when the contestants failed and recognized when they prevailed. These types of reality shows gave a chance to the normal people to change their destiny and acquire popularity. It made people believe they have the same chance to be on television, and that looking attractive or running around production houses to show off their talent had not been required any more to be a part of a show. Therefore it is not wrong to say that Indian tv set shows offers us a lot of drama, entertainment and opportunities, which connects all of us to it.
Nevertheless the point also to be noted here is that folks change their tastes right away with new shows. Channels like Zee, Colorings, Star and Sony are trying very difficult to come up with the best blend family soap and reality shows to increase their TRP’s.
Presently, Colours stands second in TRP charts using their shows like India’s Got Skill and Balika Vadhu. On the other hand, Sony Entertainment stands large with Kaun Banega Crorepati, CID, Bade Acche Lagte Ho and Crime Patrol, and walks away with the chunk of top shows in the graphs, both in the daily soaps section as well as the reality shows section. Star marks third with the show Diya Aur Baati Hum, after their drop in the graphs with the end of Satyameva Jayate season one.
But by so doing, these figures really don’t matter to the Hindi tv set audience. What really matters to them is the mental hook up which they find in the reality shows and family soaps that these channels have to offer them.
