With just five more episodes left to go on-air, Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon season 3 is all set to bid us goodbye on October 6th 2017. The show was launched on July 3rd which makes a total of just 70 episodes.
Reason? Low TRPs and the reason of low TRPs is credited majorly to all the online viewers’ constant negative feedback.
Some may complain about the not so appealing storyline of the show as well. Which probably is true. The show might have had a better story to start with.
But didn’t we see much more regressive stories surprisingly doing well on the chart? Then what went wrong? Well, the reason is definitely subjective.
Probably, this sort of a storyline didn’t click with the traditional IPKKND viewers who were expecting a much lighter plot like the earlier season as compared to this season.
Online viewers will come up with a lot of reason for disliking the show – The lead actress, the old background scores, the chemistry, to name a few.
But truth is, a show’s success rarely depends on the amount of viewership it gets on hotstar, voot or even YouTube. These online viewers do not really contribute to the TRP meters that have moved further into the interior regions of the country. Probably the real TRP contributors are not even present on social media to check on the regular spoilers of a show that keeps buzzing on internet or even to read about all the negativity around.
We feel for the viewers who invested their time in this show and are sad with its abrupt ending. One of the viewers, Alisha Meyers sent us the following pointing out what could have curbed the negativity around the show on social media, for the set of audience who hardly contribute to TRPs but rapidly do spread negativity around a show that probably deserved a longer run on television than 70 episodes only –
