Television shows come. They entertain people. And after playing their parts, they go. But what remain are the feelings that they create, the turmoils that they addressed, the subtle nuances that they touched. Just like a human being, life becomes a stage for them, where they perform and then walk away.

With glories, some mistakes here and there, rectifying it, learning and making us learn lessons along the way, sometimes it seems the show Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi was itself the hero of its own story.

It brought forward the different ‘rang’ of love, showed a simple story, made us like the characters, reason with them.

Shows may come and go, but there are some shows which have a major section of society following them and believing in them, long after these are gone. In short, such shows are said to be ‘cult’ shows.

Probably the word ‘cult’ itself has relation with the word ‘culture’ and the reason why the continued obsession is called a cult, makes sense now. The stories which show a particular face of the culture, something which is rampant, and well attract the attention of a major chunk of people too, are considered to have a cult following.

For these shows do not come and go. These shows don’t actually go away after the last episode is aired. For these shows live within the viewers who have dedicated precious hours from their lives to it. Be it in moments, shades, instances or situations – Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi will continue to live in the hearts of people who love it best.

Here are 3 reasons why the show continues to be so popular even after its gone –

Breaking Conventional Norms Of Indian Television

For some viewers, there won’t be any other show like Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi for years to come. Some hadn’t seen a show like this in a long time. In short, Kuch Rang was a good show that managed to attract attention from a wide range of people.

Many good shows may have traced their journey on Indian television, but barely they get the recognition that they deserve.

They don’t garner the attention of people and finally they have to find their way out of the television world, just within months of their inception. The television world can be ruthless sometimes and truth to be spoken, well there is nothing wrong in catering to the audience.

But what makes Kuch Rang so special is the fact that the show stayed on our idiot boxes for a duration long enough to get appreciated and not for that long enough to get the storyline itself stretched to non-stretchable boundaries.

In a way, it was one of the first shows of the genre which was original, simple, which dared to go beyond the conventional market and yet achieve success. Such shows attract the audience. Such shows become a cult.

A ‘cult’ show is not made in one day. It is a process. It is a process of dealing with situations, feelings, one at a time. It is a process of constantly respecting your audience and making efforts to keep the standards of the show as high as it is. It takes a lot of courage to give wings to your convictions and have immense faith in your idea.

The makers, the writers definitely deserve their share of praises. It takes absolute dedication to put your best foot forward everytime and ensure every single episode has a purpose and is served well on the platters. The actors deserve applause for being the characters and reflecting their ideas on screen.

We are glad that the show didn’t succumb to the conventional norms of the Indian television. We are glad that the show didn’t get lost in the multitude of many other shows just like that. We are glad that it is on the way to have a cult fan following.

Erica As Sonakshi of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi

The show broke the conventional norms of Indian Television in so many ways that not every single point can be put on this piece. And talking about the characters and scenes again may seem a bit repetitive, so please bear with us.

Talking about the characters, Dr Sonakshi Bose is what comes first in my list. The story is essentially about Dev and his journey, and of the hurdles and struggles that came way in the path of Devakshi, but would the show retain the same charm if our Sonakshi weren’t the same Sonakshi?

The confident, sassy, no-nonsense nutritionist who knew how to deal with all types of patients, was also lovable and one who dreamt of having her own fairytale. The way she showed Dev and Ishwari their places when they came with the proposal after her engagement was broken, was commendable.

The dialogue where she says that she never played the game of who has more right on Dev, and also that one where she says that she is not a lock screen on Dev’s phone to be changed as per wish – are personal favourites.

Dev is something which we all have felt within ourselves, at some phases in our lives. People work hard day and night for their families and when their family doesn’t support them at their most crucial phase, one is bound to get hurt.

Dev has shades and he is a human. He had flaws and he overcame that. And that’s what matters. You may love him, you may hate him, but no matter what, the absolute truth is, that only a few can love like Devrat Dixit. Only a few can, and those few who love from their hearts become Devdas in real lives.

  1. Sangita Khandual, Thanks a million for an awesome article about one and only unique show “KRPKAB”. We were so cexcited to read Saheli’s article’s and i was so happy to read your article too.There’s no show on Indian TV like Kuch Rang and left a bench mark in our life. The word you used “Cult show” made me proud to be a fan of the show. Specially DevAkshi (ShaRica) had stamped their character in our heart for a life time. Thanks again for an innovation article about “KRPKAB”.

  2. Sangita… brilliant article…. however for me article is incomplete if we dont talk abt proposal… the legendary proposal of dev proposing sonakshi is one of my fav and one of the unique proposal

  3. Yes, you are right Sangita. I know I am inspired by the show in multiple ways. I love the initial phase when they both confessed their love and till the time they got separated. I still miss the show, I sometimes listen to its songs, sometimes watch it online. Sometimes just discuss it with someone who I know also followed this show, sometimes follow the hashtags on twitter. I still follow the producers and the actors. You are right, I have not followed any other series in the way I followed KRPKAB before it or after it. And there are multiple others who are like me.

    Thank you for writing about this. I also miss the articles by Saheli, how she gave us in-detail explanations on every episode and every character. Thank you for reviving the memories. With Love.

  7. Wow!! Thanks Sangita to pen down these beautiful articles on KRPKAB which on a stray day just brings a huge smile on our faces….recollecting DevAkshi….
    You made my day and as I go back to work, humming
    “pehli dafa hai ki mujhme tu chhalka hai,
    mere Rangon me kuchh dhang hai tere jaise bhi,
    Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi”
    ………..my mind prancing just like Sona on that Sofa πŸ˜€

  8. Damn! Goodness me! Well,these were my initial reactions Sangita when I read this article.

    You’ve written lots and lots of lovely articles Sangita but this one has to be your best. Surely it has to be! The language and the fluidity in the writing is commendable.
