Indian TV Serials Or American Series – What’s Your Pick?

Saath Nibhana Saathiya or Game Of Thrones? Difficult choice isn’t it? Though more than half of the ample time is being consumed by smart technology these days, youngsters, I should say people following into the age group of 15-30 are more inclined towards watching English TV Series. However, the percentage of people watching English series is comparatively less than the Hindi serial followers. Is it because it’s only Upper middle class or elite people who can relate to those series much? Or Is it English speaking percentage? We may call it a beginning of a revolution, when there would be a time Indian mass would watch the American and British Series dubbed in Hindi.

There are plenty of reasons for why people are more interested rather desperate to download their next season of Game of Thrones or just keep on watching The Vampire Diaries and roll on floor laughing out louder while watching How I Met Your Mother. Be it thrill, intrigue, suspense, horror but not really horrific, mystery, twists, romance, convincing genuinity, name it and you will find it in foreign TV series. While Indian TV serials lack logic to the life.

What makes Indian TV serials less fun, which is dooming its very popularity day by day?

The English content is far more challengeable. They come up with fictions flourishing from Vampires to original high-breed of Wolverines, from aliens to ancient throne thirsty tribes so genuinely in-genuine but attention worthy, that at times we wish to live a life like theirs and often questioning the existence of the fictitious characters portrayed.

Though I am not the sheer English content follower, I do watch some of the best one’s not ignoring the ace that Indian TV had given us: Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai and current Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma. By the way, what’s your interest? Is English content to be aired on Indian channels so that people do not save the pirated versions in their laptops? or Indians still will glued to the old Saas-Bahu plots?
