Like there can’t be a dark hero or a villain with some positive shades to his character. It’s all about the black and white. No wonder it clearly reflects in their stories, dramas and well, their day to day lives too. To sum up, we Indians are just so amazingly loud and we are pretty much proud and consistent of that fact. Take the movies for an instance, be it the biggest film of Indian cinema with dialogues such as, “Yeh Haath Mujhe De De Thakur!” by the evil Gabbar Singh in Sholay or be it the predictable Indian mother yelling, “Mere Karan Arjun Aayenge!” or in another version a mother walking up with a plate of offerings towards the door of her house as she senses the entry of her son, we Indians absolutely love drama to the core. And the drama has to be loud in terms of actions, dialogues, music, colours, costumes and characters.
While this drama is very much a part of our reality unconsciously, we just can’t do away with it in our choices of entertainment, be it watching the infamous ‘K sagas’ with Mihir Virani’s come back from the dead on Star Plus or Anandi and Jagya getting married, divorced and getting married again after falling for each other, on COLORS TV. And why would the level of melodrama be an excuse when it comes to our choice of comedy serials?
The bell rings right in the head with Daya bhabhi’s loud unmelodiousness playing at the backdrop. Had it not been for Taarak Mehta’s simplified characters with an unusually loud shade on SAB TV, we Indians would have definitely missed our chances to laugh out loud! Yes, yes everything needs to be loud.
It doesn’t get so bad, after all that melodrama less spared by yellow journalism and TRP driven news channels, even political debates are no less than a comedy show! Adding to the fuel, even news channels often spent hours of their air time telecasting scenes and behind the scenes of what could be the peak of ‘loud laughter’ comedy shows like Comedy Circus and Comedy Nights with Kapil!And the same drama is taken from offline to online grounds on various platforms and portals. But none the less, we Indians come in strange and happening packages and we really like these, don’t we?
