A few weeks ago, Movie Review Preview told you about Pehredaar Piya Ki — this new daily soap that is so regressive that it has a 9-year-old boy chasing and even getting married to a 19-year-old girl.
Despite a host of telly actors talking against its basic concept and storyline, and even the masses shouting out to the makers to not telecast a show with such a regressive plot, the show has continued in its full pride and glory.
So much so that they have not only shown the lead actors – a small boy who has not even entered his teenage and an adult girl — tying the knot. Surprisingly, the plot of this soap is such that the makers as well as its lead actress claim that it is indeed a show on women empowerment.
But here’s how this show exceeded its limits – by telecasting a ‘suhag-raat scene’ of the newly married couple..
Thankfully, they did not show anything that was beyond bearable limits, else we would have really doubted the quality and the standards of Indian Television. No matter how much the telly producers claim that they record the highest TRPs on those shows which have a rural backdrop and a village storyline as their main plot, the rest of the world and the audience too believes otherwise.
The plot of ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ may have not shown any kind of adult content so far, but what if they further stoop to those standards wherein the forcefully married couple actually fall for each other? We are REALLY TOO SCARED.
