Shut Down Sasural Simar Ka
After years of tolerance, I am signing up for this petition to shut down Indian TV serial name Sasural Simar Ka. After watching some episodes and many glimpses of the idiotic Hindi soap, “Sasuraal Simar Ka”, I’d like to share my experience. For some reason I tuned in and realised that this is of the most ridiculous TV shows I’ve ever seen and represents the lowest level Indian Television has reached so far.
1. Women Sleep, Eat and Bath in Style
The actresses sleep in saree, salwar suits (complete with dupatta), and full jewellery on like they have to attend a wedding in their sleep. Even Rekha doesn’t do that at home.
2. Superhuman Abilities
Needless to mention, “Simar’s eyes” are always in tough competition with the monsoon. Possessing some supernatural powers, she, with her sister-cum-companion “Ro-Lee” does a hell lot of inane stuff which provide female viewers with false hopes for women empowerment. For both of them, empowerment means fighting with ghosts & nagins.
Accident happens → Roli dies, 50 episodes later → Roli is back after plastic surgery with the same face. The creators of this show apparently have more advanced technology as they manage to place a character that is exactly similar to Roli! Lol.
4. Men Don’t Work
Wives and mothers manage the home and handle the business as well. Males can be seen wearing sherwanis and business suits all the time and standing speechless behind their female companions while the ladies argue and handle complex matters.
5. Super Advanced Weapons Technology
Roli uses weapons developed by Gods! She uses the trishul as well. This show proves how creative Indian television writers can be. They can write anything that to attract an audience. You should only take up the challenge of watching this show if you want to die of laughter.
6. They Never End
Being an Indian audience, we’re used to being served TV series which go on for years and years, till TRPs tank and then the show ends abruptly.
To top it all off they call the family ‘ The Bhardwaj Family’ like they are the Ambanis.
I can’t believe Indian TV shows show so much fake drama and nautanki. I watch it coz my mom watches it and I happen to be in the same room.
