Making of a Mega Serial

This infinite abyss of vettiness has pushed me into watching Mega Serials. I already am a fan of many English Series but Tamil Mega Serials which air during Dinner Time caught my attention only in the recent times. Everytime i see an episode of these serials, i wonder how much effort the story writer or the director would have put for this particular show . And thus this blog post takes shape . Every serial now has a Ex Top Kollywood Actress in the lead role . This is one more thing i don’t understand ; All series have strong female leads while there is no importance given to Men . Men in tamil series are usually old and drunkard father, useless husband, arrogant brother, cunning brother-in-law,  comedian sidekick etc. no strong roles given . And they call us MCP . Duh. Alright Alright now moving to our post . It is a simulation of what possibly happens in a shooting spot of a Nedumthodar .

[Heroine arrives in Innova half hour late, while the rest of the crew is drinking tea and not to mention the story writer is waiting for inspiration to strike]

Heroine: Hi director , innikku shot enna ?

Dir: Onnum illa madam. Unga thangachi unga sothula pangu kettu sanda podranga .

Heroine: Atha thaane pona vaaram eduthom .

Dir : Athu unga modhal thangachi Vimala , Ippo sanda podrathu unga rendavathu thangachi Kamala .

Heroine: Oh . Ok Sir . Seekaram shooting mudichidalam , enakku pala appointments irukku .

Dir: Dei Madam kku touch up pannunga da . Dialogue oru thadava padichu kaatidunga .

Asst . Dir : Madam inthaanga unga dialogue .

Heroine : ‘Ippadi aniyaayam panriye di paavi

Sir oru half hour time kudunga , dialogue memorize pannanum .

Sir , namma episode half hour la . En scene poga innikku vera yaar scenellam irukku ?

Dir : Unodathu mattum thaan ma .Half hour runtime a irunthaalum , advertisement llam poga 15 mins thaane footage time .

Heroine : Seri , 15 mins intha shotukku adhigam thaane .

Dir : Cha Cha . Neenga kovama unga dialogue solreenga . Unga face close up onnu podrom . Apram oru flip horizontal . Konjam Camera va shake panrom . Minnal effect podrom . Kadal la alaiyellam nikkudhu , Paravayellam parakkama pause aaguthu , roadla vandiyellam odama kedakkuthu , indha footage llam podrom . Apparam unga thangachi pesum bothu thirumbavum ithe sequence follow panrom . Aana namma inga oru twist vekkarom . Ellam reverse la oduthu !

Ithu mattumillame background sound . ‘Ho ohh , oh hoooo , ohoohohoh‘ . ‘ Jum ja Jum ja Jum ja jumja jum ja ‘ . ‘ Papapapaaaa, papapaaaa ‘ . Aprom unga perla oru rap . ‘ Here come arasi , she’s the man ‘ ‘ Yo people ‘ . Intha maarilam bg la asatharom .

Opening song oru 2.30 + shot oru 10.00 + special effects 2.30 . Avlo thaan episode over .

Heroine : Romba nallathu director .

Dir: Madam, take porathukku munnadi innoru matter . Innikku namma serial 1200 vathu episode . So openingla oru cake vetra scene vechirukkom . Unga 2 thangachinga , auto otrare andha kozhundhanaar , apram namma kudikaara gopi , appa sir , villan thambi ellarum serndhu cake vetramaari . Apparama sandaikku poidlam .

Heroine : Cake vetna porumla ? Cake Sappadra maarinna en dietitian a thaan call panni kekkanum .

Dir: Vetna podhum ma . Vetnale podum .

Dei, Ungala ellam modhalla vetnum da . Velinaatlellam evlo yosichu , plan panni , season 1 season 2 , season finale, Fall Break nnu release pannittu irukkan . Neenga ennanna setukku vandhu than kadhaye yosikkareenga . ‘Dr. Who‘ llam 1963 la irunthu oduthu , ippo varaikkum 750 episode thaan vandhirukku . Aana namma Kolangal , Arasi llam ippove 700 touch panni stronga poittu irukku . Villana pathu ‘ Vandhutan paaru sandalan , Kattaila poravan , Abhi seendalanna ivanukku thookame varathu’ nnu solra thaaimaargal irukkara varaikkum indha serialkkelam mudive kedayathu’ .

    Dae enga arasi ah paarthu thappa pesariya ??? Iruda unna encounter panren !!!! Jokes apart , really Tamil serials are far better than the bollywood movies🙂 These serials are also a great platform for emerging directors in Kollywood ex: Samuthrakani, Tirumurugan.

      He He . Some episodes are really good but seeing the big picture, TV serials just screw around a lot. That’s a fact everyone of us have to accept .
