SASURAL GENDA PHOOL

Though i dont watch TV much, but on my trip I saw...SASURAL GENDA PHOOL, and liked it, it has a very nice story where two families are shown, one extremely proper, affectionate and nice one, whereas other one is a dysfunctional one. Main family is joint one where love flows and when a super brat girl gets married into it, all try to make her feel welcome and how she changes forms the core. The girl is shown a spoilt brat , but intelligent and affectionate, and she realises the flaws of her personality when she says, she doesnt want her child to be like her, instead a disciplined hard working one.The serial was going so well so far, but now they have spoiled it with misery..cant a story run without such things?

Then there was this Ma exchange..the same type of serial comes in US,and it was a very good one, where they change the mothers for a week  in two families with contrasting values and everything and then what positive changes come after one week form the main story..here it was petty bickering all the time like..I didnt get bread for BF etc etc.with this serial I knew how a good idea can be twisted and wasted.

Now even Koffee with Karan has also lost his charm with insipid guests and Karan in his off repeated same boring style.

Now a days I am reading Pt. Ram Sharma Acharya's literature and he says...man is made of environ ment, whatever he sees and listens forms his views, so if good thoughts are read and listened  all the time, they are seeped into our mind and they become our life style.

It's not what we eat but what we digest that makes us strong;
not what we gain but what we save that makes us rich;
not what we read but what we remember that makes us learned;
and not what we profess but what we practice that gives us integrity.”

I watch sasural genda phool;.Sometimes it goes boring with silly jokes and long and long conversations and sometimes too happy go lucky type behavior.But overall concept is good.
The quote at the end was good.

Ok, I haven't seen this serial but have heard about it. But, I guess, it is the same story with all serials. They start by telling some story and taking up a cause but then descend into the same boredom. And, it would be really nice if the characters are relatable instead of feeling so alien. Oh yes, Maa Exchange is such a bore and seems scripted. You are right; they seem to just bicker about silly things and it seems staged. Koffee with Karan is also boring. The only serial I watch is Balika Vadhu and that is mighty boring too. Nowadays, it's news, cricket, TLC or music for me.

Renu, there is only one serial I watch, that's this Sasural Genda Phool. Luckily, I record it on DVR and watch a whole weeks worth in an hour fast forwarding through all the unnecessary melodrama.
Right..why do they have to bring in the misery?! But, I guess they are building up to show that the "bad" MiL will have a melting moment.:-)

I don't watch any Hindi serials from the time Ekta Kapoor entered this field. All the serials these follow the same pattern, there is no story. Karan has really lost, he seems to thrive on gossips and scandals and creating mischief, there is no decency left in his shows.
There is one talk show which comes in Tamil in Vijay TV, it is called Koffee with Anu, that is really very decent and interesting, it is in Tamil(of course you would not understand).
I miss those days, when they used to show Chekov's stories translated into good Hindi Plays acted by talented actors, it was called Kashmakash, then there was this long running serial Humlog and so many others of that kind like Bankim Chatterjee's stories and so on.
Now there seems to be no way in which those serials would ever be aired, I have even written many times to various channels, but looks like there is no interest to revive or to make serials that would be intellectually stimulating.

I watch mostly musical shows and balika vadhu. Even that serial is boring nowadays. All the serials look the same with gaudy dresses and saas bahu stories.

I used to watch Koffee with Karan, but now am bored...

Bikram's

Raji: I liked it because of its positive way of showing everything and now that is changing:(

Shrutzz; Many viewers are feeling the same, may be when TRP goes down, they will understand.

Rachna; I used to watch Baalika Badhu earlier, but when they started repeating the same patterns of incidents again and again , I lost interest.

Gaytri: But they are making the good family suffer unnecessarily..even otherwise i dont like to see wailing, suffering and death on TV.

Rama: oh Rama, we too think so much in the same way, even I wrote to few channels about what we would love to see but to no avail..earlier there were so many good serials, some comedies and some good stories from literature.and I feel sad that we have such a vast treasure ofstories andstill we atch those silly soaps.

Sandhya: now a days there is nothing interesting on TV:(

Bikram:..I think it was Wife swap only in US too with certain rules and its quite enjoyable.

You have mentioned about Pt Ram Sharma Acharya.Will you kindly elaborate more of him. His books,
his thoughts etc.Can you recommend some books?

The reason why I ask you is I also believe that human has developed his intelligence from the environment.Not as a God's gift. This is a very crucial thing.

Charles Darwin also believed in environmental role in the development of human intelligence.

I used to love Sasural but with all serials after a few weeks, it loses its story track and goes into the common track, so stopped watching it

Despite its silliness, I still like SGP as that's the only serial in a long long time which I would have watched continuously for 4-5 months now. Did not watch even one episode of Ma Exchange, the concept itself was just so repulsive and promos were too stressful & disgusting :)
