Arattai Arangam

I rarely tune in to this obnoxiously shitty show. Unfunny jokes sprinkled with 'messages', songs sung without a scale or a tempo, nonsensical metaphors about social commentary, 10-year old kids talking about foreign relations... What pisses me off is that the audience are just so rotten it's as if they're waiting to laugh and applaud if the speaker paused for a couple of seconds.

About Indian TV and its audience, read a column recently about 'Balika Vadhu', a show about child marriages which has become highly popular in the North, thanks to the controversies it is creating.
