Zee Classic seems to have gone where no other Indian channel has hitherto gone until now, which is that of showcasing Indian classical tradition and culture, through films and music. Clearly, there have been many programs which have intermittently showcased the same but till date there is no channel which has been exclusively dedicated to the same. So in that regard, one can easily say that when it comes to showcasing the above mentioned, no other channel has even managed to come anywhere close to all that Zee Classic has managed to achieve.
Excellent instances would include say music from the golden era say in the form of songs sung by stalwarts like Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar or Lata Mangeshkar. It also includes scenes from a variety of films of that era. Likewise, we also find that when it comes to Zee Classic, one of the biggest draws for the audience is certainly the fact that there are so many films from say the 1950s and 1960s – as well as ones prior to that era, which are showcased on it. This was a time when actors like Dev Anand and Madhubala ruled the roost and that is precisely where we find that Zee Classic has worked out its niche really very well.
Accordingly, we also feel that the overall potential for a channel like Zee Classic is also enormous, when we consider the fact that there are simply so many people out there who are all very nostalgic about films, music and other such pieces of content from that era well behind us.
However much people may admire and appreciate contemporary films and music, there is no denying the fact that films of that era had a certain class and charisma which one simply cannot see today. For instance, music that time had a certain rhythm and charm which again is missing today. The same can also be said of storylines of films of that era which again were simplistic and reflective of the era of that time. Today, films have become a lot more complex, which can often get a little hard to comprehend.
Altogether, it is amply clear that Zee Classic has touched upon numerous chords which no other channel managed to, all this while. Accordingly, if you are looking for a truly nostalgic experience from an era gone by, look no further than Zee Classic, especially when you have WatchIndia.TV by your side for the same.
