English TV shows –We Indians are bored with the same saas-bahu drama on TV and are always looking for something hatke.
We often watch English shows on TV or binge-watch downloaded episodes. But desi ki to baat hi alag hoti hai.
Ever wondered what it would be like to have an Indian remake of your favourite English TV shows? We already have a few shows like Karishma Kaa Karishma, Suite life of Karan and Kabir,
Sumit Sambhal lega among others that claim to be the Indian adaptations of American shows.
Today we bring you 5 English Series that in our opinion should have an Indian remake!
Top 5 English TV Shows that could be re-created in India –
5. How I met your mother
How I met your mother is a story of a father telling his children, through a series of flashbacks, the journey he and his four best friends took leading up to him meeting their mother.
Indians feel thrilled to say “Mere paas maa hai!”.
But the mystery behind how we found her could make for a legen – wait for it – dary Legendary Plot.
Keeping an audience hooked up for 9 seasons around a single mystery is a very difficult task.
But Indians have great enthusiasm for suspense bound up with comedy. So this show’s Indian version would be well received.
4. The Simpsons
Talking of holding an audience for a long-time, we have The Simpsons that has been running successfully since 1989 and is about to air its 700th episode.
The series is a satirical depiction of working-class life, epitomized by the Simpson family, which consists of 5 members.
The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield. The Simpsons is also famous for having storylines that come to life and is said to be predicting the future.
Well, to break the monotony of regular shows, Indian TV viewers are ready to watch an animated satirical translation of middle-class Indian life.
Recently everyone’s favorite show FRIENDS cast announced a reunion after 15 years of the show’s last season airing.
Fans went crazy after hearing the news and social media was loaded with their excitement. With such tremendous popularity, this sitcom’s remake would be a huge success in India.
Although we highly doubt if the essence of the show could be retained in India as the show’s storylines were mostly based on the characters’ romantic affairs, breakups and other concepts that are still a taboo in India.
But Given our track record of movies and songs on friendship, this show deserves an India version!
India has had some famous detective series and movies like Bobby Jasoos, Byomkesh Bakshi and Karamchand.
But Sherlock Holmes is the Father of all detectives. Sherlock is a British crime television series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories.
13 episodes have been produced, with four three-part series airing from 2010 to 2017. Sherlock has been praised for the quality of its writing, acting, and direction.
The genres of crime, thriller, and mystery are a hit in India. So Indian makers can give it a try re-creating it.
1. Game of thrones
HBO’s immensely popular show Game of Thrones demonstrated unparalleled viewership over 8 years.
With each season the curiosity of fans grew and they could hardly wait for the next season every year since 2011.
The show became the most popular one of all times with 170 countries showing it. Politics is something we Indians love.
So why not re-create a show entirely based on war among nine families in order to gain control over a mythical land, in India. It’s totally worth a shot.
