From being overloaded with drama to weird sound effects, almost everything about an Indian television serial can make you cringe. But on the top is the never-ending story line of these shows.
As kids you witnessed your mother watching a particular serial and it is still running with the most weird twists and turns. And there is a very high possibility that the next generation may also watch the same TV serial. Many a times the main theme of the show is neglected and you see grandkids of grandkids ready for marriage or someone coming back after escaping death. Here’s a list of such Indian television shows that may go on till eternity but the madness needs to be stopped right away.
1. Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai: The show first aired in January 2009 and we still wake up with a #YRKKH trending on Twitter EVERY SINGLE MORNING.
The serial has completed 3,807 episodes so far and has become the longest running Indian daily soap opera.
If you remember the viral clip of actors wearing mask and the meme fest that followed, yes it is the same serial.

2. Crime Petrol: Crime Petrol started with the aim to help people stay alert. Yes, it is that show that taught us savdhan rahe satark rahe. But now it has become like any other television serial which is filled with dramatic plots.
Crime petrol started in May 2003 and is still running.
3. Kumkum Bhagya: The show premiered in April 2014. Seems like the show has promised an infinity and beyond relationship with the audience. It has completed more than 2000 episodes and the makers are not bored yet.
4. Naagin: It is hard to define this show. It tries to be scary, but it everytime it turns out to be silly and funny.
Naagin, launched in November 2015, gained popularity very quickly. It also gave several meme templates with the same speed.
