Kamya Panjabi talks about the reason behind shows wrapping up quickly; says, “Shows should be given time to connect with viewers”
Kamya Panjabi who is all set to play a cameo in the TV show Raazz Mahal is super excited to essay a strong and different character from what she has played on the small screen so far.
Ideally, Kamya prefers taking up full-fledged characters. The actress talked about it in an interview and shared, “The reason I prefer doing full-fledged roles is that when I am given a character, I focus on every aspect of the role. I work hard on the dialect, body language, and the way I want to portray that character. When I put in so much effort, I want my character to run longer and connect with people. But this time, I found the role interesting, which is why I agreed to do a cameo.”
Kamya, who has acted in shows like Shakti, Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki, and Do Dil Ek Jaan also talked about TV shows winding up in no time. She said, “Earlier, the shows used to run longer because the makers were patient and were willing to wait for the show to pick up. Even now there are a few shows that have been running for a long, but yes, there are more shows that end quickly. A show needs at least 2-3 months for the storyline to connect with the audience. So, the makers need to be patient.”
I disagree, presently shows start with great potential but get bogged down in politics or the typical saas-bahu drama and lose their direction. I think there are not enough good stories out there that create loveable characters who viewers can connect with. All of the big shows like SAAKK, IPKKND, Tere Liye, Sasural Genda Phool, stand out because they didn’t get bogged down in the usual nonsense that plagues shows today.
Rajjo is a good example of this, it started off with wonderful chemistry and potential, but the writers and makers were so muddled and didn’t know what to do with it. In the end, it’s cancelled and didn’t accomplish what it set out to do. It brought in the tedious Urvashi track, the plotting MIL and repeated negativity which made it tiresome to watch. I feel bad for the actors, but I’m relieved that at least it won’t drag on needlessly like Kum Kum Baghya. There has to be a limit, and if the makers don’t know what to do with their show, please end it.
In this day and age there is no reason for bad shows, please do better.
