Ekta Kapoor is the reigning queen of television daily soaps; there are certain traits in her shows that are immutable. This is no more a surprise for us as it's quite easy to guess considering the story tracks in her shows until now. Well, we don't intend to offend anyone; it's just what has been of late.
No matter how much the lead characters love each other, there will be nothing like "and they lived happily ever after". And even if it happens by chance, it will during the end of the show.
Sorting out the fighting sequence must take at least one complete episode of 25 minutes. It has to follow the rule of engaging the audience by narrating every single incident.
The convincing power of the negative character is simply commendable. She always has oodles of money to bribe anyone. Besides, she has no other work except to pester the lead characters even for basic requirements.
It's impossible to end an eloquent story with a strong message in a limited number of episodes. It's simply against the tradition. In some cases, the plot changes after a few months of the show.
Second marriage has to be a tradition either it's with the same person or with another. It's like if it does not happen, it's breaking a rule.
Miracles are bound to happen. For instance, Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi) from the show Ye Hai Mohabbatein was rescued from the debris of the collapsed building. And all she got was a few bruises.
If you have been an avid viewer of her shows, you can easily guess what's going to happen next in any given situation.
Aging is a miracle. No matter how old the characters are, they would never look older.
The lead characters would either be too innocent or extremely hyperactive.
It's easy to find the latest song tracks from the films. More than the happy ones, it's always the sad song tracks to entice you.
What television requires at the moment is out of the ordinary stories with limited episodes. Just like sequels. It needs something beyond prolonged episodes of shows with no gripping story which later ends due to decline in TRPs.
