When a show works for exceptionally a long time, we must recognize that there must be something the makers are doing that is absolutely correct.
Today, when most of the daily soaps are short lived on screen and come with an age of max 1 or 2 years and people come and give you lectures of how romance, youth or social themes don’t work anymore and that only mythology, historical and saas bahu dramas are the way to sure shot success, we have one word for them – Can you kindly watch Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai please?
The show has content that can appeal to every elder and youth of a family and its ability to change with time and still stay relevant has been the big reason behind the show’s success. Hats off to the brilliant team of writers of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai for coming up with such great tracks everytime to keep the viewers hooked.
Now coming to the current track – I belong to that era of TV viewers when the genre of romance ruled the TV screens. At that time, Star One, Sony, Star Plus were the GECs that didn’t shy away from producing youth content. As young adults of that time, we loved Sanjeevani, Dill Mill Gayye, Left Right Left, Just Mohabbat, Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi, Kahiin Toh Hoga and more.
Somehow in the past few years that sort of romance has bid adieu to TV. You know that kind of love that make you feel butterflies too? Or may be just make you smile unknowingly while staring at the two cute lovers on screen? Or simply go ‘awwwww’ effortlessly? Or fall in love with the theme song used on them on screen?
Such impactful romance is absent on TV now. Barring a few exceptions, all the romantic scenes in majority of the shows now appear repetitive and predictive and more often, too dramatic.
Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is one of those exceptions. The current memory loss track of KaIra in the show is like their story being re-written again. And it’s nothing less exciting this time. In fact, may be more exciting than the original KaIra story, as the passion, relativity and attraction is more this time – Both on screen for Kartik and off screen for the viewers.
The beauty of the scenes lie in the way they are written, executed and the simple dialogues of the characters that touches our heart. For example recently the way Naira casually accepted to Kartik saying, “Pata nahi kyun, tumse mujhe koi awkwardness feel nahi hoti.”
Don’t know how many balloons did blow up within Kartik then, but as a viewer definitely I found myself smiling hard and just loved that moment of confession. You see, there comes a time in a love story when more than that ‘obvious to happen’ ‘I love you’ every other minute confession matters and means a lot. And this was one confession from Naira that Kartik really really needed to know at this point of time in the story.
With wonderful scenes and great moments, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has set the pace for a memorable romantic track in the show. And that also during a time when those ‘butterflies’ and ‘pink’ kind of ‘romance’ isn’t really the ‘in thing’ on TV.
The current KaIra scenes, especially Naira’s monologues for Kartik are literally ‘feel good’ kind of moments. The way she finds him cute, gets attracted to him, runs behind him, an unknown man for her just because his presence felt familiar to her, unknowingly draws the sketch of a toad (mendak), dances in the temple like Radha for her Krishna – Each and every moment are romance personified.
If you really want to watch a good romantic track where there’s passion, fascination and unknown attraction (on part of Naira), Yeh Rishta can be a great watch for you.
Thanks YRKKH for giving us our dose of a beautiful ‘Notebook’ or Nicholas Sparks kind of love story yet again on TV.
We are quite excited to watch how Kartik re-write his love story yet again and yes, we are with our hero in this! He has the will and we are sure, some day his love will find its way.
