    ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ and ‘Saath Nibhana Saathiya’: What do they have in common?

    ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ and ‘Saath Nibhana Saathiya’: What do they have in common?

    They are just two of the several Gujarati shows on air currently that are doing extremely well
    Gujarati culture came right into Indian drawing rooms with the popular television show Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka in 1999 and, after more than a decade, it is still one of the strongest flavours on the tube. Those based in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Maharashtra too abound on the small screen. Be it a weekly or a daily soap, the regional flavour is everywhere. But Gujarati shows dominate. Shows like Saath Nibhana Saathiya, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and Ram Milaayi Jodi are continuing the trend that started 13 years ago and hit a high with Baa Bahoo Aur Baby and Khichdi.

    Ekta Kapoor, Kya Hua Tera Vaada?

    Ekta Kapoor, Kya Hua Tera Vaada?

    The show was touted as being a different mature love story, but has now slipped into predictable regressiveness
    Kya Hua Tera Vaada was launched with much fanfare. It was touted as being Mona Singh’s come back to fiction shows, as Ekta Kapoor’s next big offering after Bade Acche Lagte Hain, as a “different” mature love story. It will push Sony ahead in the TRP race, they insisted. The first episode aired on January 30, 2012 and garnered positive response. But it didn’t take long for all those hopes and dreams to come crashing down. Click here to read more

    Women’s Day special: Sandhya is a ‘worthy’ daughter-in-law in ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’

    Women’s Day special: Sandhya is a ‘worthy’ daughter-in-law in ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’

    Move over, Rajini, Shanti and Jassi. It’s time for women to live with downcast eyes, manage the household and engage in kitchen politics

    The depiction of women in Hindi TV shows has changed dramatically over the years. Sadly, it hasn’t been a positive change. For a while it seemed as if Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin would herald the return of powerful women such as Rajini and Shanti, but Tulsi and Parvati continued to rule. Flip through any channel today and you are bound to see women pushed into unrealistic slots and then portrayed in a totally unbelievable manner. Of course, there are exceptions. Priya of Bade Acche Lagte Hain works as a lecturer even after marrying into a rich household. Widowed Megha Vyas of Na Bole Tum… Na Maine Kuch Kaha gets a job so she can supplement her family’s income instead of depending on her brother-in-law. But they remain exceptions, not the norm. Here are a few of the norms that had us groaning: Click here to read more

    The producer of hit shows such as Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge reveals the secret behind their success
    Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai completed three years last week and Rajan Shahi, the man behind the success of the show, tells us that the formula is very simple: there is no formula. Rajan and his production house, Director’s Kut, conceive shows that are different from those on air – simple enough, you think?
