Jhakaasss 1 years ago This whole article seems like a sarcastic comment to Ekta Kapoor and her ways that ruined whole ITV serial industry.😂
Before her even in 90s, there were shows like AArohan, a show about Air Force about aspirations of men and women.
Flop Show, a satire on society.
Malgudi days, no introduction needed here, we came to era of shows such as Nagin 1 2 3 4 5 and Bhagya series. Serials that shows different ways to harrass woman of households. All credit goes to Ekta Kapoor who ruined the everything with her good for nothing K series and made people resistent to anything new or fresh. Now every show is running in this blind race of TRPs where shows like Seven and Maahi ve are shut down for low trps and shows like Kumkum Bhgya are running on god knows what number of kidnap and memory loss.

BiloxiBlues 1 years ago As I've said before and repeat here: Someone, anyone please, please, please, please, I'm begging you from the bottom of my heart! Take away TV content production from Ekta Kapoor as one would a sharp knife from a child. She has single-handedly absolutely devastated the Indian TV entertainment industry and continues to DUMB DOWN the masses. A country with a storied culture and history should not be allowed to lose its glory like this. It's such a shame that a powerful tool is in the hands of such a completely inept person. The earliest Doordarshan productions are absolute masterpieces compared to the forgettable obnoxious garbage she spews out. She is the reason TV was delayed in India as it was intended only for productive, culturally enriching, and uplifting content for the betterment of that country. When will the Indian population WAKE UP and drive her out of this environment????
