Questo non saprei dove metterlo, ma ne vale la pena: Indian Soap Opera
Dovete sapere che:
- The K Phenomenon
: based on predictions made by celebrity astrologer/numerologist/tarot-card reader Sunita Menon, almost all serials made under the Balaji Telefilms banner are supposed to begin with a ‘K’, regardless of what language it’s made in.(Nota: non è un Wanna Marchi, pensate che prima di far sposare due persone in genere si va dall'astrologo/numerologo e si fanno confrontare l'equivalente dei nostri tema astrali de due sposi, e si fa scegliere DA LUI il giorno propizio del matrimonio - info ottenuta grazie a cose come Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, )
MA ANCORA MEGLIO:
- Dialogue in Indian serials, in addition to being largely melodramatic and filled with historical and religious references, is widely thought lacking as far as dialogue goes. If seen very carefully, one would notice that there is, in fact, little or no conversation that takes place during the 30-odd minutes of a typical Indian soap opera’s episode. Actors’ lines in scenes are often delivered one large monologue at a time
(even longer in scenes of “conflict” between the protagonist(s) and the antagonist(s)), there are often dance scenes
based on the exact same encountered in the parent film of the song (this being less parody and more of a filler, often seen during idle amorous fantasies of the “goof” of the cast), and features elaborate sound effects, which are actually repeated in different serials which are under the same banner
For example, female antagonists often enter the room with screeching cat noises being played in the background
, perhaps an allusion to the character’s invariable cattiness; though often antagonists that are well-known and widely-spurned by the TV-seeing public often have their distinctive entrance sound effects.
[...]Male antagonists that are young often have Indianised strains of rather obscure hip-hop songs working for them in the background, and those that are older often have deeply resonating kettle drums booming in the background
The camera often spins wildly from character to character during scenes in which shocking news is revealed
, shaking vigorously when a character faints, and showing the same slap hitting the same cheek thrice during a confrontation, keeping in sync with the overall melodramatic touch most of the serials prefer to incorporate.
sux, THAT'S TELENOVELAS MESSICANA/SUDAMERICANA
!!! ( anche a Bollywood ci sono parecchie di ste cose tipo "il rumore dell'arrivo del personaggio x o gli zoom spastici in caso di rivelazioni)
- Neither has an Indian serial dealt with homosexuality or AIDS
which are burgeoning issues in India. An ironic fact, considering Ekta Kapoor, Creative Head of Balaji Telefilms, which is believed to produce the largest number of Indian soap operas, was quoted in a film magazine in an interview as saying one of her favourite shows was Queer as Folk
(unavailable for purchase in India
, incidentally), and that the actor who played Brian, Gale Harold
, was one of her favourite TV drama actors ( madò
)(nota: nei film si sta iniziando a parlarne, anche se ancora con toni licenziosi - è già qualcosa però!)
- Many Indian serials run for over five years, and, analogous to Bollywood film stars being deified to Godhood, many soap opera stars are treated with a demigod-like quality.
IL COMMENTO SPASSIONATO DI UNA TIZIA SU YOUTUBE:
1)Man oh man. I just detest these soap operas from the inner cores of my heart. They're a bit like MARMITE, u either love em or hate em. I just don't understand how people can bring themselves around to watch these shows that have THE most over dramatical acting in 15 minutes (elongated shrewdly to make 30 minutes)
and some of the most ridiculous plot lines EVER to be broadcasted on TV
. what's up with the background score & sound FX? They're more like compositions from Himesh Reshamiya (ndkalla: compositore di musica bollywoodiana per film un pochetto merda, in generale. Il più bello ebbe 7 da imdb)
on a good day.
2) Not pleasing to the ears at all..."KYA?" (tadum tadum tadum tadum tadum)
"RASS-GULLAY KHATAM HO GAEY?" (patish patish patish patish patish- slap)
"JAO MERI NAZARON SEY DUR HO JAO MAIN TUMHEIN ISSI WAQT APNI PROPERTY AUR ISS 'PROJECT' SEY BE-DAKHAL KARTA HOUN" (nahin nahin nahin nahin nahin nahin)
The only benefit that they might have is that they could be adequately used as torture devices....Tell me everything u know mofo or I'll make u watch and LISTEN to kum kum pyara sa bandhan!
However, a lot of criticism is bring meted out on these new age serials. The 'K- serials' have been thrashed by critics as being very highly melodramatic
, endorsing bigamous marriages
, mindless resurrections of favourite characters
, filmy narratives, unauthenticated medical information
and well worked out miracles for the 'goody' bahus.Nevertheless, soap operas serve as a staple diet for our daily dose of evening entertainment. For some viewers, it may be entertaining and for the rest it's pile of thrash
