RBN Web Desk: Popular Bengali television serial Ke Apon Ke Por is likely to see a major change in its storyline in the coming days. The serial, since its first broadcast on 25 July 2016 on a private channel, has managed to return commendable ratings on the Broadcast Audience Research Council India (BARC) television rating point (TRP) charts.
However, over the past one year, Ke Apon Ke Por has been in and out of the top five But it has managed to stay among the top 10 by introducing fresh plot twists in the narrative. Pallavi Sharma and Biswajit Ghosh play the two lead characters of Joba and Param respectively in the serial
According to sources in the Bengali television industry, Ke Apon Ke Por is all set for a time leap with Joba and Param likely to grow older by about 10-15 years. The child characters in the serial would grow up to be adults, leading to a ‘track change’, as it’s known in the television production parlance. The new storyline will revolve around the grownup child characters. In fact, shooting has already started with a new set of artistes though it’s not known who is playing what role, sources added.
Time leaps in a narrative has not always augured well for a serial. Several popular shows were taken off air after a time leap failed to bring back the audience. Serials like Dweep Jwele Jaai and Potol Kumar Gaanwala were shut down within months of introducing a new time leap. But Milon Tithi and Mayar Badhon, on the other hand, ran for more than a year after incorporating a time leap and plot change.
A twist in the Ke Apon Ke Por storyline, in the face of falling TRPs, is the need of the hour. The production team, however, is keeping its fingers crossed regarding the time leap.
