I’ve never been a fan of Indian films, for the first quarter of the show’s time is allocated to singing and dancing, the second quarter for shopping and cooking spicy foods, the third quarter talking about marriage and the final quarter…poor acting.
Despite my prejudice, I did give a try to the new Indian-Kenyan PREM TV drama show.
Just like every other Indian story, PREM is about filthy rich Indian and influential families that live up to their caste and look down upon the poor blacks. This story line sort of makes me feel like I am re-living another South African apathetical era.
Plus I couldn’t help but note that all characters all tall, light skinned and good looking
I’m not going to lie to you that I liked the program, but I have to make clear that I didn’t hate it. Must be something to do with the high quality visuals, clear sounds, scenic locations and the well dressed actors and actresses, a thing I have come to appreciate from all productions by Insignia Kenya.
Early in the year, PREM would air on Fridays at 7.30 pm but has since been moved to Thursdays and Fridays at 6.00 pm. Really, who watches TV at 6.00 pm?
Let me make it clear though; the show is amazing. The characters are very strong, don’t struggle with speech and the quality of the visuals, AMAZING!!! But, if this rich Indian poor Kenyan story-line isn’t killed before it’s too late, I doubt if it will be renewed for a second season.
