Sarabhai V/S Sarabhai. The title alone reminds you of what a landmark the show has been in the history of Indian television. Much after our prayers, requests and social media rants, the show is making a comeback, but this time on the web and I couldn’t be any more elated. Why you ask? Read on as to why Sarabhai vs Sarabhai deserves the web space.
1. The obvious analogy: Other than the fact that time consuming content on web > time consuming content on TV. Web may also open wider avenues for this epic show to the 1% of audience who haven’t watched the show on TV before. These are aged 13-16 who are unaware of TV and now spend all their time on the internet and they may discover the show for the very first time.
2. The true potential: One of the shocking reasons, the sitcom didn’t run as long as another daily soap is because of its reach. Despite its popularity, pan India wasn’t watching the cult comedy show on TV. And thankfully, the excitement on the web tells us that’s where all the show’s loyalists are. Besides, we already know the kind of views the shows will be getting. Who wouldn’t want to watch re-runs of this amazing show?
3. Breath of Fresh air: The Web series game in India has been going down off lately since a lot of makers have swooned in the industry. After all the I would rather be watching a Japanese documentary moments, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai comes with a breath of fresh air for the web series viewer.
