Tulsi, Prerna or Parvati, Ekta Kapoor always place women in the peak. Peak in the sense sometimes she portrays her as Sati Savitri and sometimes goes to the extend of Daain. May be she is of the opinion that women could play both these roles very well.
Women protagonist is more prominent in Ekta Kapoor's serials.She has touched their nerve.Though the K-serials speaks basically about kitchen politics which is the interest of the middle-aged female but she has successfully roped in young girls as well as males.
The television channels are flooded with Ekta Kapoor's Serials.Even her serial shows nasty politics, rivalry among family members which go upto the extent of murder and rape, still she has the magic to drag audience to their drawing room.Let's have an eye on the special feature of the K-series.
Characteristic of Ekta's soap opera
Women are always considered to be the Demi God, ready to forgive her husband no matter how many times he gets married.
She possesses so big heart that she is ever ready to except her husband's illegal child whole heartedly.
Jewelery and attire are quite prominent in her soaps.
The make-up of the female artiste remains intact even if she is overloaded with problems.
There is no end to problems in the character's life.
One more indispensable thing in the soaps is the overpopulation. Characters have uncountable children.
She never kills the main protagonist. Even if he or she dies accidentally it's sure she will make them alive in the forthcoming episode with his humshakal.
Men always get involved in extra- marital affairs.
Women are shown stereotypes.For instance, Prerna in 'Kasauti Zindagi Ki' and Parvati in 'Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki' never make mistakes. They are very ideal women. Whereas Komolika of 'Kasauti..' or Jigyasha of 'Kasamh Se' always involved in conspiracy.
Women dominate men .They are bold enough to handle both office and house.
Last but not the least, when the TRP rate of the serial goes down, Ekta uses her trump card i.e, the generation leap and enters a brand new face.
These features are only bits of the k-series hotchpotch drama running everyday. It's too difficult to digest the innumerable facets of the Ekta's serial in the true sense, but she has succeeded in brain washing the audience. So full credit should go to her.Her serial need to have some balances, which is seen nowhere. But inspite of these the TRP rate does not goes down. She has got too much stock in her bag which she opens when the enthusiasm somewhat diminishes. Hope we people continue to enjoy those ghisapita drama and does not get bored. If we become smart enough and reject them then it would be an end of the K-saga. So, it's better to intake all that she gives and keep watching Balaji Telefilms product.
