Writers of Indian Television shows are taking creative freedom to a new level. I mean, I really want to know what do they think when they are writing a character sketch of the lead characters of our TV shows. Popular shows like Sasural Simar Ka, Beyhadh, Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi have characters that have left me dumbfound. Here, I list five characters (who play pivotal roles) from five most-watched shows. Well, this is my opinion but I bet, by the end of this article, you will totally agree with what I had to say.
Dipika Kakar – Sasural Simar Ka
Say hello to my first WTF character from Indian television. It is none other than our famous Simar from Colors’ popular show Sasural Simar Ka. I find this character (Simar) to be the most illogical one. I mean come on, who on earth turns into a fly and the show yet manages to be one of the country’s most-watched primetime soap operas. Hats off! From the normal saas-bahu soap to a fantasy-sci fi-mythological family drama, the show is a complete madness. While the makers had the character Simar to defeat all the supernatural powers like ghost, Naagin, Daayan, Patali Devi (why on earth would someone be called Patali Devi), to name a few, it made me wonder why Dipika Kakar even chose to play this bizarre role in the first place. Don’t you think?
Madhura Naik – Naagin
Another show that has ruined this beauty (Mouni Roy) for me is Naagin. Agreed, Mouni Roy is hot and all but why Naagin? That is still acceptable as Naagin concept has existed for years, but what in the universe is Icchadhari nevla (mongoose) and an Icchadhari mor (peacock) which will be portrayed by Madhura Naik. The question is not how do the makers come up with weird concepts but how do these stars sign up for these roles. Well, if you think who follows such shows, let me tell you, Naagin tops the BARC charts consistently. Isn’t that insane? This show is ahead of its time.

Supriya Pilgaonkar – Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi
Is Ishwari (Supriya Pilgaonkar), from Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, a bad example to good parenting? I don’t say it but give you facts. The makers were doing justice to the plot and the character until she was an insecure mother and can’t share her son with her daughter-in-law. Later, she came across as nothing but a flawed parent. If you have noticed, she had always loved her son more than her three daughters. She killed her eldest daughter’s (Neha) dreams for Dev to achieve his.
Rubina Dilaik – Shakti Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki
Another character just left me speechless that’s portrayed by the sizzling actress Rubina Dilaik. Firstly, who names their show – Shakti Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki and secondly, after building up to it for months, the show reveals the secret behind Soumya’s identity that she actually is a Kinnar (eunuch). This is nothing but hilarious. I’ll tell you why – How could she be a eunuch and not know about it all these years? There’s sheer lack of logic behind the premise and I give thumbs down for this character; it is such a fail.

Jennifer Winget – Beyhadh
With this last character, the original list of WTF characters does not end, it just ends my list. I am sorry, but I have to do this; the last one has to be MAYA. Well, Jennifer Winget, who plays the role of Maya is hot and her acting is spectacular as always, but you have to agree with me on this that the character is illogical. I mean, who kills so many people and gets away with it. Agreed, Maya is mentally unstable, but she is smart enough to make an attempt at destroying the evidence post murders but not too well. Her solution to every problem is DEATH. What? More than Maya, I believe Arjun (Kushal Tandon) is the dumbest character on the show. He knows he got married to a psycho yet chooses to be with her and believes her over his Dusky (Aneri Vajani) mother and his brother. No wonder, Arjun is in jail now. The trap Maya has laid for him is insane. I wonder, since how long has she been thinking this through. The character is beyond our imagination, but Jennifer is such a doll on that show. It’s awesome to watch her playing Maya, even though it is an insanely illogical character.
These five WTF characters are enough to tell you what the shows are all about. This was a heads-up. I did this as a favour to mankind. Let us know in the comment section below whether do you ever want to watch any of the shows above!
