Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (pronounced [bəɽˈeː ətʃˈtʃʰeː ləɡət̪ˈeː ɦɛː ̃]) is Hindi-language soap opera on Indian television which ran on Sony Entertainment Television India from 30 May 2011[4][5][10][11][12][13][14] to 10 July 2014 after telecasting 644 episodes.[4][5][15] Based on the Gujarati play Patrani by Imtiaz Patel,[16][17] the soap opera was created by Ekta Kapoor and was produced by her production company Balaji Telefilms.[4][5][14][18][19][20][21] The name of the soap opera, along with its title track, has been inspired by a song of the same name, composed by R.D. Burman, from the soundtrack of the 1976 Bollywood film Balika Badhu.[4][5][19][20][22] Ekta Kapoor had got the name, Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, registered about six years before the soap opera premiered.[20] Bade Achhe Lagte Hain is the seventh most watched television show of 2011, in India.[23]

The show explored the worlds of its protagonists Priya Sharma (Sakshi Tanwar) and Ram Kapoor (Ram Kapoor), who accidentally discover love after they get married.[9][4][5][12][13][14][15][21][21][23][24][25] After the storyline moved five years ahead in June 2012, many new actors and characters, including Samir Kochhar and Amrita Mukherjee who played the roles of Rajat Kapur and Peehu respectively, were introduced.[7][4][5][26]

Sakshi Tanwar and Ram Kappor received the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award for portraying their respective roles in the soap opera while Ekta Kapoor received the Best Producer award.[27] Bade Achhe Lagte Hain has also won the Kalakar Award for the Best Serial in 2012.[28] The soap opera was also voted the Most Inspiring Soap in 2013, receiving a vote count of 43.68%.[12]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain was dubbed in Telugu and broadcast on Gemini TV as Nuvvu Nachhavu, premiering on 9 April 2012.[29][30] It ended its run on 31 August 2012 after airing 105 episodes. Bade Achhe Lagte Hain has also been dubbed in Tamil and is broadcast by Polimer TV as Ullam Kollai Poguthada. It premiered on 10 December 2012.[31]

Plot[edit]

Ram Kapoor (Ram Kapoor) is a well-reputed, rich and powerful businessman in his early 40s. Priya Sharma (Sakshi Tanwar), who is in her late 30s, comes from a middle-class family. She is sensible, philosophical and more mature than Ram. The story begins when Ram's younger step sister Natasha (Sumona Chakravarti) and Priya's younger brother Kartik (Mohit Malhotra), who fall in love with each other. Kartik does not think he should marry before his older sister marries. To solve this problem, Ram agrees to marry Priya to allow Kartik and Natasha marry. Initially, Ram and Priya dislike each other but as time passes and they spend more time with one another and they begin to respect and love each other. However, their relationship remains difficult—every time Priya and Ram grow closer, problems arise and drive them apart. As the story progresses, several antagonists are introduced and the narrative moves between discontinuous time periods. However, finally Ram and Priya's love wins and they succeed in removing all hurdles from their life, and they live happily with their family ever after.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain was initially intended to run for 150 episodes but as its popularity increased it went on to telecast a total of 644 episodes. Bade Achhe Lagte Hain went off-air after completing a run of 3 years, 2 months and 41 days.[4][5][15][32][33][34][35][36]

Shooting[edit]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain is one of the soap operas in India which broke the monotone of endless indoors-only sequences.[37] Most of it shooting has been done in India. But many episodes of the soap opera have also been shot in foreign locales. Sixteen episodes of the soap opera (episodes 102-117) were shot in Australia over 14 days, in partnership with Tourism Australia, in late 2011, to portray the honeymoon of Ram (Ram Kapoor) and Priya (Sakshi Tanwar). Bade Achhe Lagte Hain also received support from Destination New South Wales, Sony Entertainment Television India and Balaji Telefilms.[8][4][5][37][38][39]

During the summer of 2012, Ekta Kapoor introduced a five-year leap in the narrative.[40] After this leap, thirty six episodes of Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (episodes 235-270) had content which was shot in Dubai, UAE over a period of 10 days.[4][5][26][32][39][41] These episodes showed Priya (Sakshi Tanwar) living with her five year old daughter Peehu (Amrita Mukherjee) in the city until she has to return to Mumbai, in India. The production team failed to obtain the correct permits to shoot in Dubai and had to briefly stop shooting until the paperwork was processed.[41][42][43][44]

Music[edit]

The title track of the soap opera has been inspired by the song Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, composed by R.D. Burman, from the 1976 Bollywood movie, Balika Badhu.[4][5] The lyrics of the soap opera's title track have been penned up by Nawab Arzoo and the title track has been sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Trijayh Dey. Lalit Sen provided the music to the title track.[16][better source needed] The background music or the incidental music of the soap opera has been provided by Abhishek Singh and Mintu Jha.[16][better source needed] It also includes songs from soundtrack albums of few Bollywood movies.

Dubs and rebroadcasts[edit]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain was dubbed in Telugu and broadcast on Gemini TV as Nuvvu Nachhavu, an afternoon soap opera, premiering on 9 April 2012 .[29][30][45] Nuvvu Nachhavu ended its run on 31 August 2012 after airing 105 episodes. Bade Achhe Lagte Hain has also been dubbed in Tamil and airs on Polimer TV as Ullam Kollai Poguthada, with some of the characters' names changed. Ullam Kollai Poguthada premiered on 10 December 2012.[31]

Guest appearances[edit]

Integration episodes[edit]

The show had two integration episodes with Kya Hua Tera Vaada on 4 and 5 December 2012[54] and one with Kehta Hai Dil...Jee Le Zara on 6 December 2013.[55][56]

Reception[edit]

Response[edit]

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain was the fifth most-watched television show in the thirty–fourth week (14–20 August) of 2011 in India, helping propel the broadcasting channel, Sony Entertainment Television India to number two in the rankings of the Hindi general entertainment television channels.[57] The soap opera had a television viewer rating of 3.7 that week while Sony Entertainment Television India recorded a gross rating point of 245.[57]

The teaser released by Balaji Telefilms for Bade Achhe Lagte Hain's episode of 12 March 2012

In the forty eighth week of 2011 (25 November – 1 December), the soap opera became the fourth most-watched television show in India with a TVR of 4.30,[58] and was the seventh most-watched of 2011.[23]

Episode 166 of Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, directed by Anil V. Kumar[16] and telecast on 12 March 2012, was much hyped and anticipated. It showed the protagonists consummating their marriage.[11][59][60][61][62][63] India Today described the episode as "aesthetically shot". It was also backed by a teaser which drew the required hype and interest.[60] The consummation sequence was so much anticipated that within minutes of the episode's telecast, the episode went viral on YouTube with nearly 150,630 hits and counting.[10][59][61][62] The love making scene also trended in social networking and microblogging sites such as Twitter.[10][11][59][61] Times of India described the episode as "action packed".[61] Many viewers made fun of the episode and the overweight Ram Kapoor.[10][11] However later the actor said:

Indian television is still a good few decades immature when it comes to sex on the TV screen. So much for all the matured relationships and relevant themes – love making on Indian TV is as painful and archaic as the shaking flowers replacing actors on screen when they kiss or make love. A small sigh of relief and Ekta Kapoor and the director can congratulate themselves for the real onscreen peck on the lips.

The episode was so hyped as a couple on an Indian television had never before been so bold.[10][10][61][64][65] The episode worried certain viewers who did not want to watch the episode with their children.[60][63] Emirates 24/7 called it a "shocker to the Indian families".[10] India Today described the episode as a "big surprise for the audiences" while Times of India rated it as the Top Intimate Moment on TV.[59][60][65] The last couple who kissed on Indian television was Aditya Jakhar (Raqesh Vashisht) and Priya Jakhar (Riddhi Dogra) in the STAR Plus soap opera, Maryada...Lekin Kab Tak? in 2010.[61] Following the telecast of the episode and the overwhelming response Ram Kapoor tweeted:

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain was the second most-watched fictional Hindi television show in the weekdays of the twenty-ninth week of 2012 (15–21 July) with a Television Rating Point (TRP) of 4.2, which was 0.5 points up from the TRP of the previous week (8–14 July) when the show had a TRP of 3.7.[66]

In early January 2013, the soap opera's TRP went down to 2.3.[67] It recorded a TVT (television viewership in thousands) of 2715, 2662 and 1843 in the thirty-seventh week (9 September–15 September), thirty-eighth week (16 September–2 September) and thirty-ninth week (23 September–29 September) of 2013, respectively.[68][69][unreliable source?]

In a poll conducted by Shaadi.com, Ram and Priya were voted the Favourite TV Couple by 42.3% of Indians.[12][70] Fans even dub the on-screen couple Raya (also written as RaYa), which is a linguistic blend of the pair's names.[4][5][71] Ram Kapoor was also called "the Indian husband we love" by a Sunday publication in 2012.[11]

Accolades[edit]

Sakshi Tanwar and Ram Kapoor received the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award for portraying their respective roles in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, while Ekta Kapoor received the Best Producer award.[27] Bade Achhe Lagte Hain also won the Kalakar Award for the Best Serial in 2012.[28] In addition, the show has won six Indian Television Academy Awards,[72] two Global Indian Film and Television Honours,[73] three Star Guild Awards,[74][75] five Indian Telly Awards,[76] three FICCI Frames Excellence Honours and two People's Choice Awards.[77]

Gone are the days when television was looked down upon as playing second fiddle to Bollywood. Soap stars, too, are now as much household names in India as their Bollywood counterparts. Typically, they are associated with their screen names and personas. Thus, Tulsi in Kyunki (Smriti Irani); Parvati in Kahaani and now in her new avatar as Priya in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (Sakshi Tanwar); Ram Kapoor, the eponymous protagonist in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain...all have achieved iconic status and are instantly recognizable...the actors often become so strongly associated with an image that audiences are unable to accept them in other kinds of roles. Thus, when Sakshi Tanwar, the dutiful and always upright Parvati bhabi from Kahaani, played a cameo as Teepri, a home-breaker in Balika Vadhu (episodes in 2010), it did not go down well with audiences, who were unable to accept their role model as a negative character. Tanwar has since successfully morphed into her role as the thirty-something Priya who marries the rich tycoon in his forties, Ram Kapoor, in Sony's top-rated soap opera about finding love in an arranged marriage, titled Bade Achhe Lagte Hain
