the spark of hope in a idle life---celluloid

Was watchin these "saas-bahu" types of programmes on tv today...*yawn* i know i know, but i'd nothin better to do...so was whilin away time channel surfin till my mom actually snatched the remote frm my hand n i had (n i mean HAD) to watch whtever was goin on on those lousy channels :(..cos my mom juss hates the music channels i like...
So one thing i noticed bout these so called "saas bahu" serials is tht they r soo very CLICHED...asin almost everyone has the same story goin on at approx the same damned time...lol.
Requisites of a typical "ekta kapoor" family drama are..
-----> thr MUST be atleast one mythological bahu (heehee...mythological becos such bahus r an extinct species these days...
-----> another MUST is a ultramodern choti bahu or devrani who is a complete contrast to our mythological mai ;) n who dosent miss the slightest chance to prove it n make it obvious...
I mean cmon folks,the audience is not thaat dumb (even though it watchin these soaps holds against this point), but yet..we dont need sinister music, some sudden seductive sounds, n tht loud makeup (wch usually has only the horns missin to prove wht they wanna make obvious)in the backdrop whnever she makes her entry...
----> a sudden death of one of the family members (usually of the most affectionate, lovable ,adored by all breadwinner of the family) who usually is the only one who juss got to know before the goddam accident tht their great greatgrandfather (who everyone blames for not leavin nethin behind him to support his mega family)had actually left millions behind..damn!! n they never even bothered tohang his photo in the hallway...if only they knew...sigh! howw sad!! ;p
----> now,the most important n expected thing is the body of the deceased remains unidentified wth only EXACTLY the face area completely burnt so tht noone can identify him if it isnt for his wallet n watch...damn! ppl ...how cliched can this get n how dumb can u viewers get...cant 2 ppl hav the same wallet n watch..*snigger*..
But NO!..our moms , dadis n aunts will yet continue to watch it wth misty eyes n sympathetic looks even though the same situation was viewed yest in the 1000056 episode of another friggin "k" soap...sigh!...whn will ppl learn...
---->n thn the famous "kangaal on the street " scenario...whn it was juss yesterday tht these guys were "ghoomin" in a merc...i still dont get it..how can they actually go bankrupt in a span of 24 hours...ok ok lemme answer tht...here our choti bahu usually makes a grand entry reminds the family of the papers they were soo dumb euf to sign...guess the music n liuyd make dint really make a impact on their teeny weeny brain cells did it??..or was tht only for ours?? :!...but heyy not to forget they still roam on the streets homeless but wth their heavy jewellery , diamond mangalsutra n "am goin to a weddin" sarees...all this whn thebadi bahu is actually faintin becos of the scorchin heatn not eaten for 5 days look...i can almost hear the director screamin "heyy watch tht saree..it costs 15000"...lol
---->n thn the one situation wch steals the show...lol..orshud isay not only takes the cake but the baker n the bakery too :p
3 yrs and 1500 episodes later our long deceased hero is BAKKKK!!
YAYYY...APPLAUSE......"sniff sniff..i knew he wud be bak..".thts wht one finds our dear ol dadis n nanis n even moms *surprised* sayin...i mean "CMONNN GUYS...GET A LIFE...WHO DINT??...we all knew tht he wud be bak...juss tht he took longer than expected...jatin came bak sooner in kumkum..."...lol.lol
But noone pays heedto my comments n they continue wth their "aw's" and "thankgod"s and "ow everythin will be alrite"s...heck!why wont everythin be..afterall its a damn friggin soap everythin HAS tobe alrite ...so very unlike life
Thr r soo many more situations, "bore me to death" scenes n "i cant beleive u still watchin thiswthout breakin the tv even once" plots...
But sigh!!...its a crazy world n everyone wants to relate life to happy moments well spent, everyone wants to hav tht lil ray of hope these dumb soaps manage to throw in...everyone wants tht "everythin will be alrite" and tht "god does everythin for the best so good has to come outta it" philosophy to be proved no matter how unrealistic n fake it may seem on the silver screen...
But guess thts y these soaps run...thts the reason for those high TRP ratings...thts the reason everyone runs tograb a seat infront of the "idiot box" everyday at 8...
So who am i to complain??/
HAIL EKTA KAPOOR !!
LONG LIVE BALAJI TELEFILMS!:)
KEEP GENERATIN THIS SPARK OF FALSE HOPE IN PPL...THTS LIFE ...SO KEEP ROCKIN IT!!


cheers...
