unique shows that are currently running in television.

Television shows means sass bahu drama only. That’s what television is but there were some shows which actually broke stereotypes. They are till some shows which continues to do so. If I start making list of past shows it may take so much time. I’m going to make list of the current shows which I think actually breaking the stereotypes.

Kuch rang pyaar ke aise bhi season two : never seen such a practical show before I know it had some cliches but I loved how the female lead was not sacrificing , had her self respect and the male lead was flawed. If the season one was fabulous the season two raises the standards high. The questions never asked before I asked seeing it. Such a beautiful concept. Why is it women always sacrifice their career for children why can’t man do the same? . The Society can accept the women sacrificing her career willingly or unwillingly but when the men do the same they are not able to handle it. Kudos to the directors for taking such a topic for breaking the stereotype. I still can’t understand why this show does not get nice trps it deserves to be number one. Anyway I heard the season two has topped the charts in us lol the America people has better taste. This show and the topic actually deserves to be watched. Unique show .

Naamkaran : it was worst show before leap and holds many cliches Now also. It has sass bahu drama also but trust me it is far better than most of the other shows at least after the leap . The female lead is not all damsel in distress she knows to solve her problems, she prefers to leave the house than proving her character to the people. Maybe avni is little sacrificing but she is far better than all that crying bahus. But what stands out for me is male leads character. Neil not a mcp, respects women always stands for what is right even means going against the people and gives damn to the society. I always carved to see male leads like Neil and dev . Neil cares for avni’s self respect than her. Neil is not confused about his feeling and knows what he feels. Call him rude but he has the guts to call a spade a spade. Kudos for CVS for creating a male lead like him and breaking stereotypes of Mcp and rude male leads. Television needs more male leads who respects women not manhandle them. I don’t believe a man is one who controls women he is one who respects women and fights for her dignity, protects her and gives her wings to achieve something.
Neil is the nayi soch of star plus
The other thing about naamkaran is the characters . Neela actually breaks the stereotype of step mother and fights for her daughter like a lioness and prakash supports avni whenever needed. The shweta’s character which is actually grey shaded was handled carefully. The way she slapped Riya and said she may hate avni but will never wish hell for any women as a women was awesome. What stands out is Neil’s characterization and avneil’s story seriously I have witnessed many shows where male lead is all bad and grey and female lead corrects him but rarely comes a show where reverse happens. Avni is all what a female lead is not and Neil is not what a male lead is not. Even naamkaran tops the trp in USA looks like foreign people have really great choice.

Yeh un dinno ki battein hai : trust Sony to come up with something new it will come. I was disappointed with shashi sumeet’s tu sooraj main sanjh after watching diya aur bati who would not have been disappointed with the sequel. But this show actually brought the charm back. Trust me guys if you are not watching the show u are missing something best in television. Whenever the a episode ends it leaves a sweet smile on my smile . When I’m not born on ninety’s I could relate to it. The setting is done good it takes me back to my school days. The manner the first crush thing is dealed is one of the best things. I could totally relate with it. Awe I could never get over the show. Television seriously deserves some shows like this. Being in Sony TV the show got 1.0 trps was that not enough. The narration is quite good.

Rishton ka chakryudh : ok I love the writing of the show. The mother daughter dynamics is actually good. Something refreshing. I’m love with female lead character who gives a damn to anyone.

Kya kassor hai amala ka : this show seriously deserves a evening slot. Still angry for star plus for its decision. Wasn’t talking about a sensitive topic like rape and making people aware about the struggles of the race victim not nayi soch it’s better than showing some rubbish Chandra nandini and tu sooraj. Anyway the show made me cry, leave a great impact on me so where the actors. I will miss the show.

Ek aastha aise bhi : why instead of giving chance to that stupid show can’t star plus actually shift shows like this to evening slot. I was craving for a female lead who does not call for god when trouble beckons her.

Ishq mein marjawa : trust Yash pathak to give something unique he will give you . I know as the show is going many feel it’s normal but I know twist awaits ahead. Yash pathak brings best of actors .

Ok this are the shows I find unique in television right now. I do ship some other shows but I find them cliched.

  1. I agree regarding naamkaran and kuch rang pyaar ke..they are d bst shows..
    I hav heard more abt yeh unn dinon ke these days..bt I haven’t seen till now..I’ll watch for sure..
    I wanted to add one more show in this list i.e ishqbaaz acc to my opinion

    1. Kashaf

      Do watch yeh unn dinon it is just awesome. I almost thought to mention ishqbaaz even I watch the show but it’s just my point that it’s nothing compared to other shows other serial I mentioned here. Shivika and rikara are awesome. I watch the show. But when compare with it some really standard shows.

    2. Kashaf

      I don’t know dear. U just watch all this show and watch ishqbaaz u will really understand the difference. Even I watch ishqbaaz but it does not match the standards of the other shows I mentioned above

  2. All ur words r so true . And specially abt naamkaran u spoke my heart . In true sense only naamkaran and kya qusur hai are an example of nayi soch . Though I have not watched kqhak , I know it Is a good show . Rishton ka chakravyuh is a good show. There is a reason and motive for everything done on the show . They have not started any love story . That’s a plus for the show . All the shows somehow come and stop at a love triangle but I am glad that till now they r sticking on to the concept of mom-daughter relationship . Hoping to see more beauty of it . Ur dp is fab.

    1. Kashaf

      Thanks dear.

  3. Maha_Aijaz

    Amazing analysis Kashaf! Yeh un dino ke baat hai is the best serial of 2017, I’m seriously in love with the story and with it’s lead. It’s background scores and Sameer’s look which is similar to 90s Salman is worth watching. It has unique beauty which can’t be found in any other serial.
    Krpkab is making me amazed through it’s topic which is raised very nicely, both Erica and Shaheer are nailing their characters.
    I’m not watching RKC, KKAK and many others but knows something about Naamkaran, I really adore Neil actually. He’s sweet and looks good with Avni.
    A part from it Colors new show Tu aashiqui and Ishq mein mar jawan are doing great but personally I’m loving Tu aashiqui more, maybe because of it’s overload sweetness.
    Also waiting for Adhura Alvida which will go on floor soon, hope it’ll be interesting too!

    1. Kashaf

      Even I’m waiting for adhure alvida. Thanks

  4. Samm

    Simple words- I love reading your episode analysis ? I’m a huge fan of Naamkarann and Neil, and I have a few international friends who love it equally! So I totally found myself nodding along to everything you said about the show. I don’t watch any other show due to time restrictions, but I’m glad that more such shows with unique concepts are coming up. ??

    1. Kashaf

      It’s actually good to see something refreshing in television

  5. Very true….Manalapan is my most favourite and it is really very different from other show…Krpkab 2 is another mind blowing show I love it…..my third favourite is kundali bhagya…it’s also I am..can’t say anything about other show as I don’t watch them

    1. Kashaf

      Kundali bhagya even I watch the show but it’s just that I’m afraid of ekta kapoor that she will surely ruin the show because whichever show I watched of her she really had ruined that to me. I just hope she does not do the same with kundali bhagya

  6. Very sorry for the spelling mistake..it’s naamkaran not Manalapan….it’s all key board fault not mine

  7. preety kapoor

    my best show is rishtoon ka chakarvayu .i like saturpa and anami acting most . It’s totally different story which is full of twist and turns . i don’t like saas bahu show . This show is totally different show .

  8. i m also big fan of rishtoon ka chakarvayu.

  9. Kuheli_Banerjee

    Of all the shows u mentioned , i love ishq mei marjawa n yeh un dino like hell, especially naina n sameer soooo cute they are , aren’t they??????? and my arjun is the best

    1. Kashaf

      Even I love Arjun bijalani

  10. Aleya.marzan


  11. Shahina

    One n oly show I watch is KRPKAB….
    For me it’s the best,im happy that it has the first place in this list??

    And one correction,?
    The producer of KRPKAB n Ishq mein marjawan is Yash patnaik not Yash Pathak??.

    I’m thinking of watching IMMJ also cos of the fab production house.
    Beyond dreams gives unique and extremely good content.

    1. Kashaf

      That’s true. The show is fab. I’m sorry for the spelling mistakes

  12. Aastha_Reddy

    I would give first position to star’s “kya qusoor hai Amla ka?”, then “Yeh unn dino ki baat hai” in your this list. These are far away from Saas Bahu drama like you mentioned above your article. Other wise, I am proud “Dil hai ISHQBAAZ”…
    Rest of the shows…Naamkaran-Dayabanti and Sweta, Kuch rang-that psycho mother of Dev, Aastha-Laxmi, Gurumaa, you said about shows away from Saas-Bahu and mentioned saas-bahu serials names in this list , atleast a few I strongly believe are Saas-Bahu drama only, except for Rishton ke chakrabyuh adding to the list where YUDKBT and KQHAK…….

    1. Kashaf

      Yes but I find naamkaran and Kuch rang pyaar ke aise bhi better than other sass bahu drama shows. I have mentioned naamkaran has its own faults but the male lead breaking stereotypes it’s good to see , where do you find a male lead who has guts to stand against his family for right and does not accept their apologies and then krpkb let me let you it’s rare to get a show where gender equality is written in such a way society actually needs shows like this. Do watch the shows and then comment on it. I guarantee you it will never disappoint you
      I’m sorry I could not mention ishqbaaz because of my own reasons.

    2. Aastha_Reddy

      I wrote what I feel like suit the title of this article. I have nothing personal against you, but I judged your article there. I like direct refusal more then fake promises, so I may be missing a good show, but I will not watch KRPKAB.
      About Ishqbaaz, its your personal problem, I am glad you accept truth, but unluckily that doesn’t judge the show that way and not problem of other viewers..that is completely your personal choice which will not take this particular show out the list of BEST SHOWS these days. And that is not what other people feels along with you…

  13. Niyati

    I agree regarding ye un dinon ki baat hai , kya qussor hai Amla ka & Ishq main marjawan. These are better from Saas bahu drama .They are unique . Ya, Rishton ka chkaravyuh is also done great job .

  14. LuvIBN

    Trust me wat all u said is 10000000 % true. Accept with each and every word

  15. VINDY

    I totally agree with you dear.Perfect choices…………

  16. My favorite show on Star Plus is RISHTON KA CHAKRAVYUH the storyline is just too good. My second favorite is Naamkaran because I really like NEIL’S CHARACTER. And my third favorite is EK Aastha Aisi Bhi like you said I like the way she does immediately call for God wen she’s in trouble. My fourth favourite is KQHAK I really like the concept it’s just fab. I’m not happy with Star plus for removing EAAB and KQHAK they were my two favorite dopahar shows. My fifth favourite show is ISHQBAAAZ I really liked it in the beginning it was my favorite show but know it has fallen to fifth for me because of some reasons. Nd I also like Love ka hai intezaar. I wish it was either KQHAK or EAAB that shifted to the evening slot instead of Tu Sooraj. I also don’t like Dhhai kilo Prem.

  17. Harshaa

    Yes i agree with u . i don’t watch all the shows here except yeh un dino ki baat hai.Its a nice show.It suits to ur title unique. Really showing a 1990s love story and narrating of that time is not soo easy. Especially the sets and the mindsets.They took utmost care to collect and bring certain things of that era. Specially the magazines and all that.
    But when they are dealing with that era it is good if they don’t just stop in showing the love story but also changes in the mindsets and all that also

  18. Aarti32

    True analysis
    Luv Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, Kya Qusoor Hai Amla Ka n Rishton Ka Chakravyuh

  19. I agree with your points on Naamkaran
    I started watching this show after the wedding of Neil and Avni and had to go on line to update myself on the story.
    I read the comments on the show’s page and everyone pay more attention on Neil and Avni’s relation not that I don’t like it but the relation that touches me the most is Neela and Avni’s relation – it is so pure always got me glued to the tv when they are on together. What a pure mother’s love.
    So you commenting on that just made my day. Naamkaran does have very unique concept – just hope the CVs and producers do not spoil the show.

  20. Nice analysis

  21. Abhilasha

    Ishq me marjwan ha turned my favourite in few days….the themes is totally different an new twist is totally amazing… Moreover both ml and fl are playing grey shades which is really fascinating and apart from them is its music which i loved the most!!
    Tu ashiqui is really sweet…jannat has nailed the show and ml is too gud and theme is also good an based on bitter truth of society of so called rich people!!
    Krpkab is really marvelous and concept is outstanding!!

  22. I completely agree with u Kuch rang Pyar Ke , naamkaran , ye UN dino ki baat ha ,kya qusoor ha amla ka r all my fav . Even I didn’t watch RKC and IMMJ but heard it is also good.
    It’s sad that most of the shows u mentioned here can’t survive in trp chart.
