I loved to watch National Geographic as a child. Then I grew up and began watching Indian drama series and Indian Television that are just like Nat Geo shows when it comes to showing animal life-but with an added bonus of drastic plotlines.
I mean, who can’t see a triangle of love between a gorilla and two people? As a person who hasn’t found a single dateable man in years, it’s interesting for me to see a woman choosing between an animal and a more developed version of the animal. It’s a dilemma I’m digging.
So, I mentioned here my favorite’ animal shows’ and a brief description of what they’re all about. “Mada magarmacch ko dekhta hua nar magarmacch” stuff is far better than this!
The tale of a lizard ruining things by marrying someone else’s man.
You don’t need to delve much into the plot for this one. Just understand that after a divya metal (like infinity stones) there is a lady named Lavanya. Things didn’t materialize so she channeled her shaktiyan to transform into a lizard with Drishti’s man to have a false wedding. Drishti and Divya, respectively, are sisters able to see and change the future.
I would say this is very typical of lizards. “Ye hoti hi aisi hain chipkaliyan.”
Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum:
A wedding destroyed on certain days of the year by a boyfriend who turns into a tiger.
I will cite a source engaged in the show for clarity (and that, frankly, should be enough): Rahul (Karan Kundra) and Manvi (Saanvi Talwar) will decide to go for their honeymoon in the coming days.
It will be disclosed during that moment that Rahul is actually a shape-shifting tiger. Karan’s character will face the implications of turning into a tiger on specific days of the year due to a curse provided to his family.
Thapki Pyar Ki:
Girl is bringing home gorilla, fucking everything up and falling in love with her.
So after a rather painful encounter with him, Thapki, who already has a few lovers, takes a gorilla home. Things quickly get strange (as they always do) and the gorilla falls in love with her as well. Not at all uncomfortable.
A’ pyaari’ naagin leaves her home in Naagistan to alter her perceptions of Earth’s snakes.
Because she’s a pyaari, she takes the peaceful route to planet Earth to persuade people that after all, snakes aren’t that bad. She falls in love with a human being in the process (what about the obsession of these creatures with us?) and the remainder is history. #NotAllSnakes
Sasural Simar Ka:
What began as a show about marrying a lady against her wish-turned into a supernatural saga, turning the protagonist into a fly.
I still don’t understand what that was all about. My small, dumb brain is unable to maintain up. The manufacturers came with the plot Interstellar-meta as the makkhi was going to move to other dimensions and things. All this while performing household tasks as an ‘adarsh bahu.‘
Love and vengeance story. Snakes, buffaloes, nevla and any other animal on the planet are also shaped. Any animal can become a human, how fantastic is that?
Explaining Naagin’s plot will take me years. Let me just say, assuming you already understand about the existence of this show, that there is one precious stone, one dead lover, and tons of lady-snakes roaming around attempting to take vengeance on people while sometimes falling in love with them.
Nazar has a half-human, half-snake personality called ‘sarp‘ (duh), supposed to be a show about witches.
Sarp’s task is to snatch from a primary personality all the powers and that’s about it.
National Geographic sincerely requires to upgrade its game. They’ve lost a spectator in me already!
