Mega-serial - III

...you watch some hindi mega-serial. Almost all the male characters in all the serials are businessmen. And the ladies are the wives of such rich businessmen. They have no other identity. The ladies are always dressed like they are ready to attend a wedding. They wake up in the morning and lo, you see properly made-up face. The sarees are designer wear. All of them are home, taking care of the family. They are either
a. nice bahus (daughter-in-law) who suffer at the hands of the bad saas (mother-in-law) or
b. bad bahus scheming to destroy the good saas
And there is probably a rule that all these in-laws are supposed to sit in the living room all the time. They sit comfortably on the sofa/couch and once in a while get up saying "Kya?" or "nahiiiiiin" or "bilkul nahin".
(Whatever happened to the people that gave us Dekh Bhai Dekh or Tu Tu Mein mein?!!)
There is not much role for men in these tamil or hindi mega-serials. And the ones that act as fathers, uncles or fathers-in-law are the ones that have the most insignificant of roles.
I am so ready to pen a mega-serial. There is a template. Make the lead woman cry every alternate day. Introduce new characters every other day. Make sure the main family and these side families don't meet. The more you postpone this, the longer the serial gets. A few good characters that are close to the lead woman should die. Finally, somehow link all the characters/families and the lead woman wins (whatever).

THE END.

Deepz, ennoda friend is the senior Executive producer of an afternoon saas-bahu saga on Starplus. Her serial has been on for 4 years now. The other day she narrated the entire plot of her serial and wanted me to help her 'move' her story.
I was giving wondarphul suggestions like "Send the 2nd son to USA..","Get a villi-wife for the 1st son.." "Get the daughter addicted to drug..".. And i was most disappointed when she told me that my ideas had already been used in her serial.
To top it all, Madam kusboo is bit adichyfying her serial's story for her Kalki serial on Jayatv.. idu epdi irukku?

In deepa's defense, I think she has covered it all. The serials may be long but the template is sterio-typed -so thats all u can write.

Yeah these hindi serials are a real pain in the wrong place especially the K serials...No wonder the creative head or ass(sorry for my language)of K serials Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar (famous for his K movies) are still single...

Dekh Bhai Dekh and Tu Tu Main Main are ok types but I liked the Doordarshan serials better...Who can forget?

Humraahi, Circus, Fauji, Mongeri Laal Ki Haseen Sapne, Pachpan Kambe Laal Deewarein...

I know that there are some companies that offer the iPhone 3GS for cheap, without a contract, around $300. Sometimes the iPhone is unlocked. Does anybody know a company/seller that sells it for this cheap and is very trustworthy? The cheaper the better, and they must accept PayPal payments.
