Last Night, I Watched Indian TV Reach Peak WTF When Its Most Popular Character Turned Into A Fly

Couldn't make this shit up if I tried.

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.

When you scrape the bottom of the barrel for ideas to further the plot. Sasural Simar Ka. You've set a new standard.


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.


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?)
