The sudden rise of web series in India sparked the youth because it doesn’t show the same old melodrama as those mediocre daily soaps do. We have grown watching the same content over the years about how a simple lady marries a person with a big family, where she does everything to please others, yet being hated by everyone. This story is being repeated over the years in every show with some twists and spice, here and there.
Web series in India earned the heart and attention of many Indian youths because it offers content over melodrama. Close to 70-75 % of the Indian population is the youth, and the majority of these youths are on the internet. Most of the viewers of web series can relate to the content it displays. Like live-in relationships, homosexual stories, crime thrillers, the life of a common man in some crappy place. The web series brings us these types of content which attracts us also because the television world wouldn’t dare to touch and bring it to their shows. This happens because censored board exits and they have made a rule not to allow mature content on their platform. But the web series can push all these boundaries as it is an online platform. The writers can take it to their limit with all the freedom, and because of it, they can show the reality of society.
