Bear in mind the time when evening meal has 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 time when your dad answered every question that Amitabh Bachchan asked the contestants of Kaun Banega Crorepati? And even those occasions when grandmoms thought that her four sons signified the personas of Kahaani Ghar Ki? Bigg Boss 12
Yes, these are all the unforgettable memories that were, and even now, symbol the power of Hindi Tv programs and what it has done to all of us in the the past few years.
All of us Indians are always at the top of the emotional quotient and anything at all that strikes our mental chords would be an immediate hit. That is why, family soaps have handled to hook up in people, which in return gave the shows their TRP’s, accolades 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 commemorated when they prevailed. These types of reality shows gave a chance to the normal people to change their destiny and acquire recognition. It made people assume that they have the same chance to be on television, and that looking attractive or running around production houses to display their talent has 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.
Although the point also to be noted here is that folks change their personal preferences in a short time with new shows. Channels like Zee, Colorings, Star and Sony are trying very difficult to come up with the best mixture of family cleansers and reality shows to increase their TRP’s.
At present, Colours stands second in TRP charts with the shows like India’s Got Skill and Balika Vadhu. Nevertheless, 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 using their show Diya Aur Baati Hum, after their drop in the chart with the end of Satyameva Jayate season one.
But all in all, these amounts really don’t matter to the Hindi television set audience. What really matters to them is the psychological hook up which they find in the reality shows and family soaps that these channels have to offer them.
