Of Ekta Kapoor & K-Soap Screenplays!


Over the years, I have seen more than my fair share of Television. This includes religious following of every television fad from the "Popular-American-Show-Dubbed-in-Hindi" Phase (Small Wonder, Superhuman Samurai Cybersquad, & the like), to the "Quiz Show" Phase (BQC, KBC), to the current "Unbelievably Scripted Reality Show" Phase . However, there is one TV fad that never really caught on with me.. The Star Soap Parivaar! I guess I never really got the novelty of the thing. Lemme rephrase that. No one, other than bored housewives, really got the novelty of the thing. I mean, I can understand a 'Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki' here, and a 'Kyunki...' there, catching on TRP fire. But going by the sheer volume of these mondo-hit soaps, there is obviously something that we're all missing here. 

Having said that, just because we don't get it, doesn't mean we can't profit off of it, right? Primetime Soap Operas have been going through a lull lately. So I thought we could scoot in on this market and come up with our own scripts to sell. Click below to create your own (Insert Auspicious Letter)-Serial!

  2. psst.

    An independent, morally upright feminist probably wouldn't have a husband, a mother-in-law or a sister-in-law.

    hmm. actually, now that I think about it - an independent, morally upright feminist would be in a K serial period. :)

  3. Thank you peoples! =D

    @freeflowingsalt: Hey man, we're talking about a world where people wake up with impeccable make-up on... Where people come back from the dead... Where time and space are dimensions that are as useless as common sense or logic...

    Hehe, I think we can make room for an independent thinking housewife along the lines of 'Tulsi Virani' here.. =p

  4. Came across this page today and found it really interesting! Just like Gandhiji's age old wisdom still holds good, these K-serials are still topping the popularity charts...it's unbelievable!
