#AudienceVerdict: Have supernatural shows lost their CHARM?

MUMBAI: Over a period of time, television as a medium has attracted a lot of flak and criticism overall.

The urban middle class feels that the medium has been reduced to being an idiot box and that the golden era is missed in the race for higher ratings.

But there is more to that. There was a time when the script was just a clichéd narrative where mothers-in-law connived, daughters-in-law were smeared in vermillion, property disputes were frequent, and regular kitchen politics were shown. And among them, entertaining us were the supernatural shows like Naagin, Manmohini, Brahmarakshas, Nazar and many others.

While they are viewed and much loved there is a section of the audience who feels that supernatural shows have lost their charm.

Parag Thakkar, a student shares, “While I love watching all the drama from the shows and the supernatural content, I do believe that it has got a little monotonous. The shows have a similar format and there is no outstanding USP that would make one watch the shows until and unless you want to kill your time.”

Akshay Parekh says, “I like watching the shows and I find them to be a better watch that the daily soaps. The revenge drama is very entertaining.”

Hemani Uppal expresses, “I feel the concept of revenge drama has become boring. The concept and narrative all streams down to the same plot eventually even if they have a good start at first.”

Jignesh Thakkar opines, “One may call these shows regressive, some may call it monotonous, the very fact that they are still launched and viewed is because there is a demand for such shows and how much ever we refuse to accept, supernatural shows add a different flavour to the overall palette of entertainment.”
