Why Indians Prefer American Serials Over Desi Ones

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thiiiiiii…

Listening to this, I’m sure the annoying welcoming shot and music will come back to haunt you. The Indian television industry has been around for long but without any evolution. So, modern Indians stopped lamenting over our shortage of sensible and exciting TV series and have done something worthwhile. They have started watching the American sitcoms and other TV series to fill the gap.

While this is just one reason for the new generation to change loyalties, there are many other valid explanations for their preferences.

Here are some noteworthy reasons why Indians prefer the American serials over the Indian ones.

Script: The Ultimate King

They have comedy, crime, drama, mythology, politics; everything which will make you watch out for more.

Our TV products, on the other hand, are still obsessed with the saas-bahu sagas, a concept older than eternity.

To Improve Our Language

Who would not want to shine among a group of friends or amidst office parties and hangouts with their exceptional language skills and knowledge? So you learn science-related vocabulary from The Big Bang Theory, medical jargon from Grey’s Anatomy, legal terms through the popular series Suits, and so on. 

They Know When To Stop

'Keep it short and crisp' is an undervalued concept in Indian television. The American serials know when to stop. They have weekly episodes which means you can watch an entire season in just a week.

Production Quality

If you have watched the series and the larger-than-life depiction of love, lust, power, pain, politics and every human emotion in existence set in a fantasy land of magic and dragons, you will know what we mean by quality.

To Fit In

This doesn’t mean that we never had good shows on Indian TV. We had our share of intelligent content like Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, Khichdi, Malgudi Days and so on. But for current Indian shows to reach anywhere close to the standards of American TV serials, we still have a long way to go.
