Nach Baliye 9 NOT In Top 10 List Since 3 Weeks: Blame It On The Galat Soch Of Trying To Make It Into Bigg Boss
Well, look at the TRP ratings of Nach Baliye 9 and you don't have to be even in Secondary Section to endorse that the numbers have dipped- and how. This is an iconic show which you and I grew up on. This is a show which was Appointment Viewing. Since the past 10 days, I was wanting to write that the show looks nothing short of stage-drama and so frankly, I am not surprised that the numbers reflecting are lower than expectations.  NB 9 was 5 in the coveted Thursday List for its first episode, but has lost steam thereafter.

What I am surprised is that why did Star Plus decided to deviate from its original format. Why has the bickerings among exes and their playing up to the gallery become inseparable from the show? If that is not so, why is Star Plus promoting Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Aditya so much on their social media handles? I must tell you about a certain press release which was floating the other day- Madhurima was slowly but definitely being linked up with Aly Goni!

Hats off to Urvashi Dholakia for saying it as is. You need guts for that and Ekta Kapoor's Komolika of the original Kasautii Zindagii Kay has them.

Star Plus and Salman Khan (producer) may put up a brave front and say, 'Times are changing. People have too many things to see'. Agreed but I still find it difficult to digest that the reason for Nach Baliye 9 is the change in environment and the change in how the audience thinks'. But, look at the way that Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has climbed. This just means that it has connected with the viewers and Nach Baliye 9 has not. Look at the way that Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya held on to the first two spots for the longest time, and if they deviated, it was just a little here or there.

What we certainly don't want is another Bigg Boss. Let Bigg Boss remain Bigg Boss on Colors. Let's stop this herd mentality. If 5 people make web shows, 200 line up to do the same. If a particular section of the media is doing well, others try to become its clone. If a bhoot-pret show gets good TRPs, we are surrounded by ghost-n-spirit stories in quick time. If a certain bipic clicks (and this was so evident especially after The Dirty Picture ran away to glory), hundreds of filmmakers are reading up reference books to weave another biopic.

Why are we losing our own identity? What is the character of our own product if we are just aping and trying to be someone else? Copying others and closing the doors of your brain is just barking up the wrong tree.

What is immediately required on Nach Baliye 9 is a Damage Control. Who will stand up and say: We goofed up? Who will say: Let's go back to only nach, naach and naachna in the upcoming episodes? And the 64-million dollar question is: Who will bell the cat?
