Indian television has covered a long journey since its inception. Two decades back, it was only Doordarshan that entertained millions of viewers. Viewers across India used to flock around the television and enjoy the journey of the characters that resembled them.
Today, with changing time the options have increased. Several channels rule the television sets present in most of the home. What have perhaps remained the same are the Hindi daily soaps. What started with the advent of Doordarshan is still continuing in its full glory. The serials have changed and so the characters but what remained same is the emotions and the journey of the characters. And perhaps it is because of these changes that it has been able to reflect the current society. This reflection of our societal and individual life attracts and retains viewers of all age group. Viewers are able to associate their pains and joy with those they watch. The characters have become a part of daily discussion and life largely affects the audience in daily life.
Hindi television has also matured to a great extent. It often questions and raises topics that are still considered taboo in some parts of the country. The serials, especially family soaps, have been able to portray each character with sincere honesty. These characters resemble someone among us and not a larger than life character that only remains restricted to the television screen.
Serials like Bade Ache Lagte Hain and Hongey Judaa na Hum are some of the family soaps that have wooed the viewers. Further, serials like Crime Patrol bring in the dose of reality that we often unintentionally overlook. Today, hindi television has become a major part of our life more than cinemas. They entertain us every day without failure and also natures the fragile human bonds.
