Creative content goes missing from TV channels

It’s  high  time  that  the  TV  channels  should  opt  for  a  makeover, for  the  past  few years  there  has  been  an  explosion  of  channels  in  the  Indian TV  business  and  there has  been  immense  competition  resulting  in  shows  which  are  created  only  for  the purpose  of   getting  high  TRP’S. The  era of   Dooradarshan was  the  golden  period of Indian  television  specially the  shows  they  had  be  it  “Flop Show”  the   first  sitcom  aired  by  the  channel  or  serials  like  Ramayana  or  Mahabarat the  actors  were  worshiped  like  gods  in  every  household, the  quality  of  the  programs  were  much better  than  what  we  have  today. The  name  of  the characters turned  to  be a  household  name this  was  the  popularity  of  the  shows  aired  by Dooradarshan  and none of the  current  channels  enjoy  this status. It  was the  content  that was  the  sole reason for  those serials/sitcoms  being  a hit  most  of the  content  was  on  the socio-cultural  problems  faced  by the common  man  of  India. The  current  serials  after  its  10  episodes  all  start  looking  the  same  and  since  there  are  so  many  other  options  on TV  people  have  started to keep  on  changing  channels  looking  for  creative  contents. In   this  industry  if  one  type  of  format   is  successful, everyone  follows  suit  and  hence  there  is  repetition  of  content. There  is  a lack  of  structured  training  or  guidance, the  push  for  excellence  is  missing  today  . These  producers  should  look  at  international  channels  and  see  how  natural  and  new  are  their  concepts. Sitcoms  like  ‘FRIENDS’ have been aired  for  more  than  10 years  only  because  it’s  simple  and  we  can  relate  to  the  characters ,  their  serials  have  no  exaggeration  of  events  they believe  in  minimalism  and  don’t  follow  dramatic  portrayal  of  characters  or  narration , drama  is reserved  for  stage and  not  for  screen.  It is  about  time  that  TV  channels  go  for  a makeover  hire  people  who  are  talented  and  make  something  original,  not  just  concentrate  on   the  entertainment  factor  but  also  give  importance  to  quality.
