The BARC report for week 8 of 2017 is out. It is Shani that has taken the third spot in the Urban sector. It is noticeable that the top two fictions shows Naagin 2 and Shani are ones that are loaded with VFX effects. Kumkum Bhagya has managed to take the fourth spot while Shakti- Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki is on the fifth. In the past few weeks, there has been a tough fight for the fifth place. Some of the shows that took the slot are Udaan, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Saath Nibhaana Saathiya. One thing is clear that long-running shows need to constantly up their game to give competition to the shows launched in 2016. In fact, the success rate of shows launched last year is quite high with many of them taking up positions in the top 20.
Let us take a closer look. Yeh Hai Mohabbatein is on the 9th place this week. It was a regular in the top five till 2016. Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel's drama revolving around marriages, children and villains has never had a peaceful month for the protagonists. But we can understand the audiences fatigue with the constant troubles in IshRa's paradise. It was the separation track and the Australia segment that last pushed it into the top five.
Udaan is the most fluctuating show in the top 10. In fact, it is the only show that whenever it re-enters the charts lands up straight on the fourth or fifth place. The track where Suraj (Vijayendra Kumeria) was made a bandhua (slave) only to be rescued by Chakor (Meera Deosthale) was a huge hit. The show is watched both in urban and rural areas and its interesting tracks always get terrific response. The show has been on air for a little more than two years and is a complete success.
Devoleena Bhattacharjee's Saath Nibhaana Saathiya also fluctuates greatly on BARC. The show has a regular fan following with ladies (mostly housewives) in both urban and rural areas. While some find the show downright annoying, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya has generated the masala to reign on TV for five years straight. Gopi Bahu (Devoleena) and Kokila (Rupal Patel) are an unbeatable jodi. It is a similar case with Sasural Simar Ka, which was a top five show for almost three years. A survey has declared Shani as one of the most loved characters right now on TV. Well, the TRPs reflect that. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates....
