Amitabh Bachchan starrer Yudh, has been on air
for over a week but the ratings along with the pace of the story
seem to have taken it's own long route to success. Although the
characters on the show and their acting is impeccable, the show is
said to have fallen into the "art show" category than a TRP
churning, money minting, mass following TV shows, like that of Ekta
Yudh, which is said to be the Indian answer to
Hollywood's Breaking Bad, seems to have lost somewhere in
the transition. Even in Breaking Bad, the show started off
slow but took pace soon after(in like 3 episodes). But in
Yudh, the emotional drama seems to have taken centre stage
and getting back to the plot is asked to wait.
The show sure got a spectacular start, but was unable to sustain
the viwership due to the slow pace in the initial episodes. Trying
to make the show intense in every scene is sure a difficult task
for the makers, but the same applies to the viewers who are forced
to digest it episode after episode.
Amitabh Bachchan's acting cannot, again cannot, be criticised
and the same goes to the other artists, be it Kay Kay Menon,
Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sarika, Aahana Kumari and others. But the shows
like Yudh and Anil Kapoor's 24 are "quality"
shows, which can't be and might never get ratings like Ekta
