K Syndrome

From the past five or more years the K syndrome has dominated the idiot box and has prompted many more such production houses to follow suit and make similar, repeated and boring family dramas with never ending episodes.

Mihir jaroor wapas ayega, so many re-births, the grand old lady of the serial, Ba is 200 years old if we go by the generations and actors that have added to the serial, the Virani women have the most gaudy of wardrobes and make up sets. Its Anurag once and another time its Mr Bajaj, the daughter in law wins sometimes and the motherinlaw the others. Its not only these two charechters fighting over silly matters the whole family is fighting with each other and then there is one ridiculously dressed con woman who is the wamp of the whole serial, sh eplots and plots and plots schemes which win sometimes and loose the other times. There are love stories which have good startings but end up being another run of the mill serial. There are stories of young women with dreams in their eyes and saying, 'yeh meri life hai' but again become the same scheming ladies when they end up getting married to their boyfriends.

These are our serials, and whats the message they give, that life is nothing but a game where one has to win. People keep playing games and revenge and gameplay and fouls are all they show. they are slow moving, boring, and full of useless masala and are repeated. Though our janta is glued to it as our producers dont give us any better options.

I want to know y cant we have more serials like Dekh bhai dekh and Ye jo hai zindagi. Why cant we have serials made on real life? Why cant we have something like Everybody loves Raymond which has so many family issues hidden behind the humour in it. Why cant we have a scrubs with real life humour in it. we have to have a painted tulsi and a over rated Ba, crying day after day.. these serials dont get over and our people arent taught anything more than quarelling over petty issues. If you are living together you will have fights and nothing else. this is what our serials today are full of. They are petty, silly, repeatetive and morally so low. Sure they are women oriented but show women only as scheming and quarelling people who put on makeup and dress up and only think of the next PLAN OR GAME to play..
