If you or your mother is a frequent viewer of seeing Indian TV serials then you know the kind of drama that unfolds on screen. Even if you do not know then there are enough memes being made on the utterly ridiculous scenes. A family drama or rather a saas-bahu saga has worked wonderfully over the years. Now a new TV serial named Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum has started airing on Star Plus. Starring actors Karan V Grover and Dipika Kakar Ibrahim, a video clip from this serial has impressed netizens for the lovely spoof they presented of a hospital scene. This video shows how a doctor's role in undermined over a wife's power to regain her husband. It directly hints the kind of content that is shown in some of the TV serials. While one TV serial has made a spoof of other TV serials, we thought it would be a good chance to look into other instances of ridiculous TV scenes.
Over the years, some things have become so common that it is no more shocking. For example, the lead couple will visit the same temple at the same time so they can 'coincidentally' bump into each other, shocking news has to be repeated thrice so that viewers can finally get it (Kyaaa), and one of the epitomes is that if a character dies, more than his./her death, their reincarnation is certain. So we have seen the plot being presented differently in different shows. And the latest trend is supernatural powers. But then there are some scenes that go beyond imagination. Ekta Kapoor Is Miffed With the Indian Audience For Liking Game Of Thrones And Mocking Naagin!
Let us take a look at some Ridiculously Funny TV Soaps
Washing Laptop Like Clothes
Star Plus' TV show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, aired an episode in which the lead heroine cleans the laptop like clothes and then dries it on the rope. The husband shocked looks at it hanging on the rope!
Slap Scene Gone Too Far
This is a very recent scene from Sasural Simar Ka which again went crazy viral for the sheer stupidity. A slap so hard, that even the curtains fall could be a good tagline here, don't you think? Also, someone needs to slap some sense before even thinking such a scene, you'll know when you see the next video.
Simar Turns Into a Bee!
The show stings. Enough Said!
Special Effects FTW!
A show aired on Zee TV called Kasamh Se experimented with their editing techniques or rather had only one technique of zooming in and zooming out. The drama, the music, the changing of effects fit in at regular dialogues too. But given it was aired a decade ago, we can say it started the trend of creating drama, even if unnecessary.
If we sit down and list such scenes from Indian TV soaps it would be a day full of entertainment. In fact, these scenes are so bad that they are good. If you are having a dull day, we hope this brightens you up. On a serious note, the above scenes leave us wondering, whether it is the viewers' lack of intelligence or the maker's lack of creativity to make such quality content for the masses, who depend on TV as a sole medium of entertainment.
