PlotEdit

Ram Kapoor is an unmarried, wealthy, established, and well-reputed Mumbai-based businessman in his early forties. Priya Sharma is a working woman in her early thirties and comes from a middle-class Mumbai family. Ram's half-sister, Natasha Kapoor, and Priya's brother, Kartik Sharma fall in love and have to consider the Hindu culture taboo of younger siblings marrying before their elder siblings. Ram has yet to select a prospective spouse so the marriage of Kartik and Natasha is pending.

There is a solution. Ram and Priya agree to the Punjabi practice of watta satta although Priya dislikes the economic disparity between their families. Ram and Priya considers each other arrogant and quarrelsome. They become closer with time and consummate their marriage.

Kartik and Natasha divorce as Natasha is unable to adapt to her reduced economic status. The divorce provokes disagreements between Ram and Priya. Priya is pregnant, has an accident that others believe has killed her. She moves to Dubai.

This makes Pihu to hate Priya. Priya finds Pihu and Varun together. Pihu accuses Varun of raping her. Priya finds the truth and tries to rectify Pihu's misdeeds. Varun is shocked by Pihu's betrayal and kills himself. Priya and Pihu meet with an accident and Priya falls into a coma.

7 years laterEdit

Priya finds this and objects to Pihu's relationship. Pihu threatens to kill herself if she cannot marry Samar, so her parents acquiesce. Suhani is pregnant with Samar's child.

Guest appearancesEdit

ProductionEdit

The name of the soap opera, along with its title track, has been inspired by a song of the same name, composed by R. D. Burman, from the soundtrack of the 1976 Bollywood film Balika Badhu.[6][7][18] Based on the Gujarati play Patrani by Imtiaz Patel,[19][20] the soap opera is created by Ekta Kapoor and produced by her production company Balaji Telefilms.[21][22][23] Ekta Kapoor had got the name, Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, registered about six years before the soap opera premiered.[24]

ShootingEdit

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain is reportedly one of the soap operas in India which broke the monotone of endless indoors-only sequences.[25] Most of its shooting has been done in India. But many episodes of the soap opera have also been shot in foreign locales. Sixteen episodes of the soap opera (episodes 102–117) were shot in Australia over 14 days, in partnership with Tourism Australia, in late 2011, to portray the honeymoon of Ram (Ram Kapoor) and Priya (Sakshi Tanwar). Bade Achhe Lagte Hain also received support from Destination New South Wales, Sony Entertainment Television India and Balaji Telefilms.[A]

During the summer of 2012, Ekta Kapoor introduced a five-year leap in the narrative.[28] After this leap, thirty six episodes of Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (episodes 235–270) had content which was shot in Dubai, UAE over a period of 10 days.[B] These episodes portray Priya (Sakshi Tanwar) living with her five-year-old daughter Peehu (Amrita Mukherjee) in the city until she has to return to Mumbai, in India. The production team failed to obtain the correct permits to shoot in Dubai and had to briefly stop shooting until the paperwork was processed.[C]

MusicEdit

The title track of the soap opera, inspired by the song Bade Achhe Lagte Hain is composed by R. D. Burman, from the 1976 Bollywood movie, Balika Badhu.[6][7] The lyrics of the soap opera's title track have been penned up by Nawab Arzoo and the title track has been sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Trijayh Dey. Lalit Sen provided the music to the title track.[19][better source needed] The background music or the incidental music of the soap opera has been provided by Abhishek Singh and Mintu Jha.[19][better source needed] It also includes songs from soundtrack albums of few Bollywood movies. The Tamil version of the title track song was sung by Shweta Mohan, with hummings of Shreya Ghoshal reused.[35]

BroadcastEdit

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain premiered on Sony Entertainment Television in India on 30 May 2011.[36][37] It was initially intended to run for 150 episodes but it went on to telecast a total of 644 episodes, going off-air after completing a run of 3 years, 2 months and 41 days.[D]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain was dubbed in Telugu and broadcast on Gemini TV as Nuvvu Nachhavu, an afternoon soap opera, premiering on 9 April 2012.[43][44][45] Bade Achhe Lagte Hain has also been dubbed in Tamil under the title Ullam Kollai Poguthada, and it premiered on Polimer TV, on 10 December 2012, with some of the characters' names changed.[35]

ReceptionEdit

ResponseEdit

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain had a television viewer rating of 1.3 in the debut week after its premiere, which increased ten weeks later to 3.7.[54] It became the fifth most-watched Hindi television show in the thirty–fourth week (14–20 August) of 2011 in India, helping propel the broadcasting channel, Sony Entertainment Television India to number two in the rankings of the Hindi general entertainment television channels.[55] The soap opera had a television viewer rating of 3.7 that week while Sony Entertainment Television India recorded a gross rating point of 245.[55] In the forty eighth week of 2011 (25 November – 1 December), the soap opera became the fourth most-watched television show in India with a TVR of 4.30,[56] and is the seventh most-watched of 2011.[57]

Episode #166 of Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, directed by Anil V. Kumar[19] and telecast on 12 March 2012, portrayed the protagonists (Ram and Priya) consummating their marriage.[E] The episode was backed by a teaser to draw hype and interest.[60] Within minutes of its telecast the episode went viral on YouTube with nearly 150,630 hits and counting.[F] It also trended on social networking and microblogging sites such as Twitter.[G] India Today described the episode as "aesthetically shot" whileTimes of India described it as "action packed".[61] There was mocking of the episode and the overweight Ram Kapoor from some segments; Ram Kapoor responded that he would not lose weight for the television industry.[H] IBN Live commented, "Indian television is still a good few decades immature when it comes to sex on the TV screen. So much for all the matured relationships and relevant themes – love making on Indian TV is as painful and archaic as the shaking flowers replacing actors on screen when they kiss or make love. A small sigh of relief and Ekta Kapoor and the director can congratulate themselves for the real onscreen peck on the lips."[58] The episode was hyped as a couple on an Indian television had never before been so bold.[I] The episode worried certain viewers who did not want to watch the episode with their children.[60][63] Emirates 24/7 called it a "shocker to the Indian families".[64] Yet India Today described it as a "big surprise for the audiences". Times of India rated the consummation scene as the Top Intimate Moment on TV.[J] The last couple who had kissed on Indian television was Aditya Jakhar (Raqesh Vashisht) and Priya Jakhar (Ridhi Dogra) in the STAR Plus soap opera, Maryada...Lekin Kab Tak? in 2010.[61] Following the telecast of the episode Ram Kapoor tweeted a thank you.[61]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain is the second most-watched fictional Hindi television show in the weekdays of the twenty-ninth week of 2012 (15–21 July) with a Television Rating Point (TRP) of 4.2, which was 0.5 points up from the TRP of the previous week (8–14 July) when the show had a TRP of 3.7.[67] In early January 2013, the soap opera's TRP went down to 2.3.[68]

In a 2014 poll conducted by Shaadi.com, Ram and Priya were voted the Favourite TV Couple by 42.3% of Indians.[69][70] Fans even dub the on-screen couple Raya (also written as RaYa), which is a linguistic blend of the pair's names.[71] Ram Kapoor was also called "the Indian husband we love" by a Sunday publication in 2012.[58] Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar later came together to portray the role of a couple in the ALTBalaji web-series Karrle Tu Bhi Mohabbat, which premiered in 2017 and was noted for its common plot elements with Bade Achhe Lagte Hain.[72][73]

Gone are the days when television was looked down upon as playing second fiddle to Bollywood. Soap stars, too, are now as many household names in India as their Bollywood counterparts. Typically, they are associated with their screen names and personas. Thus, Tulsi in Kyunki (Smriti Irani); Parvati in Kahaani and now in her new avatar as Priya in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (Sakshi Tanwar); Ram Kapoor, the eponymous protagonist in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain...all have achieved iconic status and are instantly recognizable...the actors often become so strongly associated with an image that audiences are unable to accept them in other kinds of roles. Thus, when Sakshi Tanwar, the dutiful and always upright Parvati bhabi from Kahaani, played a cameo as Teepri, a home-breaker in Balika Vadhu (episodes in 2010), it did not go down well with audiences, who were unable to accept their role model as a negative character. Tanwar has since successfully morphed into her role as the thirty-something Priya who marries the rich tycoon in his forties, Ram Kapoor, in Sony's top-rated soap opera about finding love in an arranged marriage, titled Bade Achhe Lagte Hain
