9 Indian Daily Soaps We All Were Forced To Watch Because Of Our Moms

8 Indian Daily Soaps We All Are Forced To Watch Because Of Our Moms

You are not an Indian if Indian daily soaps haven’t been a part of your day. Sometimes purposely and mostly because your mom didn’t let you change the channel, the melodramatic and tear-soaked daily soaps are certainly our mom’s favorite things to watch. 

Though made for entertainment purposes and some with a good social message, these shows sometimes crossed the line of weirdness. Not only are they stretchy, but they also miss logic and a proper storyline and have often been problematic. Here are some of the popular Indian daily soaps that we have all watched but never liked. “Mujhe Maaf Karna Maa!” 


9 Indian Daily Soaps We All Were Forced To Watch Because Of Our Moms

Saath Nibhaana Saathiya

Saath Nibhaana Saathiya

This show was spotlighted, especially after Yashraj Mukhate’s song, “Rasode Mein Kaun Tha.” Though this daily soap had the highest TRP, some comical and ridiculous flaws existed. Cleaning a laptop with running water, unending plot twists, and propagating regressive ideologies made this show bizarre, absurd, and unrealistic. It was meant to be a family drama, but Kokilaben’s Pariwaar failed at it badly. 

Sasural Simar Ka

The only thing this show made us think was, “Kehna Kya Chahte Ho?” Aired for over six years, the all mom’s favorite daily soap Sasural Simar Ka had some comical and ridiculous storylines. Initially started as a soap portraying women empowerment, the central idea was lost somewhere among Poonar Janam, Icchadhari Naagin & Dayaan. All this weirdness reached the height when Simar, the lead, turned into a fly.

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai

Even that’s what we want to ask. This parents’-loved daily soap has turned out to be highly ambiguous. The creators’ have somewhat changed the idea of family drama to somewhat toxicity. The lead couple getting married and separated multiple times, a dead character returning after five years, and many such instances are ridiculous and mind-boggling. Seeing the regressiveness and toxicity, we are just left to say, “Bas Kar Bhai” 

Kasauti Zindagi Kay

Kasauti Zindagi Kay

This daily soap from the early 2000s was loved a lot by our parents. Pictured as a romantic drama, Kasauti Zindagi Kay was retrogressive, and female characters were portrayed as frail and controlled in many instances. In 2020, season 2 of this show was aired, which seemed more like a remake with more unrealism and flaws.

Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki

The lack of options in the 2000s was solely the reason for this daily soap’s high TRP. The lack of a rigid plot was not an issue when this soap portrayed women as husband’s property, to be precise, “Paon ki Jutti” and normalized marital rape.

Kum Kum Bhagya

Kumkum Bhagya Daily Soap

Airing since 2014, this show was popularised as a sweet & innocent romance drama. But soon, it went too far when regressive and toxic outlooks began to be publicized, even normalizing the husband’s ill-treatment of his wife. Unrealistic plot twists and suspense, abusive behavior, and unnecessary tragedies have made this daily soap irrational and absurd.

Uttaran

Uttaran

This daily soap is based on the friendship of two girls from different economic backgrounds, Iccha and Tapasya. While this show was immensely popular, the plot grew unrealistic day by day. Aired from 2008 to 2015, this daily soap had some unnecessary villains and cunning characters that made the show a bit stretchy. The female leads giving up on their careers for the sake of a happy family was indeed problematic.

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi

This daily soap must have been a favorite in every house. Aired in 2000, this family drama would often go over our heads with those reincarnations, bizarre plot twists, and woeful female characters. The show had so many characters that it would sometimes startle us. The most comical thing was the sudden deaths of the characters and their return after plastic surgery. Was it a family drama or just propagating plastic surgery?

Balika Vadhu

We bet you couldn’t avoid watching this daily soap. It was initially created to propagate awareness of child marriages, but the theme was soon lost. The plot could have progressed to portray empowerment in women; instead, it portrayed regressive ideas and women being controlled. Despite being regressive, unrealistic, and weird, this show became popular in every household. A second season was aired in 2021, but it had the same flaws.
