TV serial or a film?There is one famous serial that is aired on a very leading Tamil TV channel, which has created all records for viewership in recent times. It is on air at exactly 8 PM.
It has all the masala that we normally associate with crime thrillers. The plots and the sub-plots and the precision with which the leading lady takes on the might of the bad man, who had actually murdered her own father to take over the wealth, is simply gripping. One really wonders if there are smart MBA marketing wiz kids suggesting these kinds of stories or whether the director himself has become so smart to spin off such TV serials. He had actually created records in India. His previous TV serial was watched by an estimated five crores of Tamils all over the world, and that was said to be a big record for all Indian language serials, including Hindi.
We have never had it so good. So, instead of watching a movie, the thirty minutes of our time, mostly over dinner is well spent. Do you have such serials in other languages too?
