Actress Pranitaa Pandit of Colors TV show ‘Kawach Mamta Ka’ has spoken about festive scenes in TV shows and how well they work.
“It’s true that festive sequences really work well on TV and there is always some drama that happens around that time and that is true in real life as well. There is so much happening and it’s so interesting.There are people whom you meet, you dress up and socialize. It’s obvious that something or the other happens and that is what people really love about the festive sequences on TV and real life too,” she said.
“It’s all about enjoyment and celebration, and in real life also in our culture, these festivals are supposed to happen to unite people and to celebrate together. So these festival sequences really add up to the storyline and audiences also get ideas on how to celebrate special occasions and how to make it more fun,” she added.
She thinks such sequences give rise to better TV ratings because people are really intrigued by what their favourite characters are wearing, what their style is, and what twists and turns are going to happen.
“Usually in a show there are few characters who are linked by the main lead but in a festive sequence such as a Diwali sequence or Holi sequence, you know that everyone is going to come together and the drama is going to be more intact, so of course it gives a very good backdrop. Like even when we go for a wedding in real life we know that we are going to meet our relatives and there is so much gossip that is going to happen,” she shared.
On why such glamorized sequences work in the case of a daily soap, she said, “It is because there are a lot of interesting things that happen like the songs, the dress, how they conduct themselves and handle situations. It is all about togetherness and enjoyment and the drama, so it does interest people a lot because they want to see their favourites on television and get inspired by them.”
