With entertainment becoming so niche, there is pretty much a channel for everyone. While all this is great, I wonder if this means the end of collective memories.
In today’s fragmented world of entertainment, I haven’t a clue about shows on the gazillion channels, much less follow their story.
With too many shows and each one watching their own, I wonder if we will ever have a cult figure like ‘Kroor Singh’ again, whose ‘yakku’s are still doing the rounds in our collective memories.
I know I sound like the elderly lady who sits in the courtyard and mourns today because yesterday was so much better.
I think I would give up ‘personalized entertainment’ for a Chandrakanta experience which still brings people together to reminisce.
So sing along for old time’s sake. Lyrics are below (I know it by heart, just in case you were wondering)
Chandrakanta ki kahaani badi lagati hai suhani
Yeh purani ho kar bhi badi lagti hai mastani
Naugadh vijaygadh mein thi takaraar
Naugadh ka tha jo raj kumar
Chandrakanta se karta tha pyar
PS: If any of you have the original soundtrack do lemme know. My obsession with it continues. Oh and a guy has sung it on youtube.
Update: Trivia by s4r4bh : Nazim and Ahmed were Kroor Singh’s sidekicks in the show
