Call it a tendency of ours of referring the world’s most popular entertainment rating website, IMDB, to know where films or shows we love, or intend to watch, critically stand on the global scale. Working majorly on user votes, the website of IMDb makes sure it accommodates every film, short film, show, that is made. And by every, we mean, every. Including Hindi TV daily soaps.
Talking about the audiences that watch daily soaps and the audiences that refer IMDb ratings, we are talking about two different generations of people. And talking about user votes which rate these shows, it is the fusion of these two generations that bring to us the IMDb ratings of these shows. Really. Ever checked the IMDb rating of shows like Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Naagin, or Ishqbaaz? And in case you do watch them, this is for you. And since we discovered this phenomenon, we just couldn’t wait to put it out there.

Clearly, the winner among the others, the love for the show never ceases. A user on IMDb eloquently pens the show, its characters, and its prowess:” Honestly If you are insane or you want to become insane…and then please watch 5 episodes of this serial and you are there. You may not need to watch this serial anymore because every time there is same story SAME dialogues and hard to believe that people are actually watching this for six years. What has happened to the basic intelligentsia of Indians and Daya Bhen, Can you please speak in simplest way possible. Entire Gokuldham took 2-3 days pursuing Tappu to stop him from shaving his head and I mean c’mon – “Who does that??””
Evidently, the love for India’s current favourite TV shows is unceasing. And IMDB only outlines it further. It was about time we referred the leading website to witness the ratings and be proud of our shows getting breathtaking ratings of 4.8, 5.0. Such proud, many wowe.
