We are back for all the restless viewers of Indian Television with what is new and what is good. Look at the wide spread palette of so many soaps aired on every channel with some story or the other, and you are truly spoilt for choice. We will tell you what are a hit and a miss. Without further ado then, let us find out the top seven for this week. Get entertained!
‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ on Star Plus: This series has been occupying the top position these days with its old story that has been given an all new twist, complemented by the generous and magical helping of Rajasthani flavors. ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ returns to the number one position with a TRP of 5.01 this week. With the potential of Sandhya and Suraj’s legendary love story and her aspirations to work in the civil services, ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ looks like it is here to stay.
‘Balika Vadhu’ on Colors: After a much-hyped falter in the audience loyalty levels, ‘Balika Vadhu’ has pulled itself back with a blast and a TRP of 4.0 bespeaks the same. Truly, this is one series which has proved that accidental experiments can hook audiences across diverse cultures. With a bubbly Anandi, a Jagat or ‘Jagiya’ with inferiority complex, his other wife trying to justify her point of view and Shiv, the new and much loved man by audiences for Anandi—the characters have become part of our drawing rooms for good now!
‘CID’ on Sony Entertainment Television: Truly speaking, this series has seen it all– great audience loyalty, faltering viewership and everything in between. Seems like people are simply watching ‘CID’ to see how it finally ends. On the other hand, even after a long run of more than a decade, ‘CID’ has occupied the third spot with the TRP of 3.99. Cheers to the patience, of both the audiences and the producers.
‘DID Li’l Masters’ on Zee TV: The greatest reality about TV is that– everybody loves reality shows. No doubt the return of this dance show with a TRP of 3.79 has made it to the top five countdowns– occupying the fourth position. Thing is, it is kind of adorable and sometimes really young kids dress up and dance in front of the highest paid choreographers in India and a celebrity actor and director, who is the main judge. A special attraction also comes in the form of other celebrity judges, every now and then. With the aam junta scaling new heights in dancing, we are hooked on indeed!
‘Crime Patrol- Dastak’ on Sony Entertainment Television: Rounding off yet another countdown of top five soaps of the week is ‘Crime Patrol’. With a TRP of 3.69, this show, which portrays real life crime and unfounded punishment in India, is still quite the favorite amongst the audiences, making it to the top five shows of the week.
‘Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai’ on Star Plus: This soap seems to be steadily climbing up the popularity charts! What began as a show based on the tender and all-important relationship between two sisters, is now grabbing eyeballs for the interesting turns that the story track has been taking of late. Moreover, the cast of – (Krystal D’Souza), Maanvi (Nia Sharma), Viren (Karan Tacker) and Viraat (Kushal Tandon) – has garnered massive popularity specially so because of their freshness. The tag line about how far you could go for your love appeals to the modern audience who cherishes relationships without being overtly showy about the same.
‘Satyamev Jayate’ on Star Plus: Finally, India has a show on Lines on Oprah Winfrey’s world reckoner. Yes, we are talking of our very own Intellectual Khan’s take on truth every Sunday morning—‘Satyameve Jayate’! Having garnered popularity even before it hit the screens, the steady TRPs the show has been getting of late is well justified. Right from dealing with and throwing light on sensitive issues like female feticide and child marriage, the show has ventured into the gullies and lanes of India—figuratively and literally– like no other news channel even could in these many years!
That is it for this week. Watch out for the countdown next week, as it is bound to be different with some series having dramatic tracks to move forward on.
