The Mega Serials Parade
Theme: "I am this character as the title of the movie, and I usually am the centre of the story, every other character sucks and they plan to dismantle my popularity. There is hardly any character with good will and they are picturised as the pathetic and helpless creatures. The spot light goes to me and the villians around. Of course, the title song belongs to me and it runs for a ridiculous 5 minutes everyday between 5 minutes of commercial before and after. There is a camera trick that you should like, I stand in the centre and the camera would go around me with the wind blowing at hurricane katrina speed, playing a dramatic music. This footage alone will occur for 30 seconds every minute in the 5 minute title song that will be aired daily ".
Alright, so why am I rambling about this so much ? I am not going to try and justify that this is bad or good. It just happened. They saw the demand and they do the business and the housewives (and some exceptional husbands) are intrigued by watching it, as the story usually is more like their own lives. I have no problem in them watching that and even being addicted to watching that. My only pledge to those who watch is, Don't live by what you watch. It is just an entertainment thing and one shouldn't try to relate or adopt what they see. I have seen people behave/think dramatically just the way it happens in those serials. The worse thing is the toddlers and kids seem to be enjoying the song and the ads between the serials. They are so glued to a "Sakthi Masala" ad that they refuse to eat food if they are not allowed to watch it. So I am going to cut this post short by saying the one line:
"Watch it, but don't live by it and most of all, keep your little kids away from it."
