Buzz·Posted on 16 May 2016Last Night, I Watched Indian TV Reach Peak WTF When Its Most Popular Character Turned Into A FlyCouldn't make this shit up if I tried.by Sahil RizwanSocial News Reporter, IndiaFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Ever since it hit Indian television screens in 2011, Sasural Simar Ka has been one of the country's most watched primetime soap operas. Colors Yes, that is an actual episode summary. However, if you're anything like me, your only exposure to this show would have been through its many contributions to the viral web. india-forums.com Yes, that is a trailer they copied from Game Of Thrones. Last week, this nonsense teaser for its May 15 episode started going viral, and I decided I just had to see if the show is actually THAT insane. Rameez @Sychlops When you scrape the bottom of the barrel for ideas to further the plot. Sasural Simar Ka. You've set a new standard. 07:38 PM - 14 May 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite Spoiler alert: The show actually is that insane. Colors Here's the lowdown – the 20-minute episode begins with a dying supernatural fairy type person, which first of all... What? Colors So I read up, and it turns out that at some point in 2014, the show went balls out and pivoted from a normal saas-bahu soap to a fantasy-sci fi-mythological family drama. Colors Apparently, Simar The Logic Slayer has battled everything from evil demons to an actual snake woman. (I knew time-jumps were an Indian TV thing but, guys, am I the only one who didn't know about genre-jumping wtf?) Coming back, the show's titular hero Simar has to save the fairy whatever by finding a cure in a jungle. She, of course, decides to do this alone, in the middle of the night. Colors Unfortunately, all she ends up doing is pissing off a guru who has been meditating there for 5,000 years (I'm serious). Colors So pissed off is this charming dude that he decides to curse Simar... Colors And turn her into a MOTHERFRICKIN' FLY. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Colors What... Colors The... Colors Fuck. Colors Say hello to the new lead character of India's favourite primetime TV show, ladies and gents – a fucking housefly. Colors It should be noted that as WTF as this twist was, it's not even an original idea. Telugu blockbuster Eega already did the same thing way back in 2012. SS Rajamouli Films So, is Indian television crazy? Hells yes. Is there any chance I'll be watching this show again? I mean...
