In search of logic

Gone is the time when just any fantasy sequence would work on the small screen. Actor Vikas Sethi says that even in fantasy shows, there needs to be some logical justification behind sequences. "They need to be done tastefully and there needs to be some coherence in the story. See even if you create a fantasy world, you have to create some rules and logic of that fantasy world. You can't just show things because it's convenient and for a thrill factor. We need to learn from Hollywood to create good fantasy shows which also portray basic human condition in them, even though in a very imaginative sense. There has to be some logical grounding to fantasy shows. In fact, human fantasy is more interesting and there is a lot more drama in it," he says.

In fact, the actor says that many shows have improved their content after the advent of the web. “I feel, this new medium has provided us with great new opportunities and there can be a lot more exploration. In fact, some of the content has even improved and certain kinds of shows that we wouldn't have even imagined getting on air or reaching the audiences before, are now seeing the light of the day. It's an exciting time to be in the business of storytelling,” he says.

However, Vikas adds that the way of acting remains the same in all three mediums, all that changes is the pace. “Acting is acting, irrespective of the medium. When it's a TV soap opera, which I have the most experience in throughout my career, the time for preparation is less. A daily soap opera production involves constant shooting because new episodes are telecasted almost every day, so its hectic. But good actors always pull it off nonetheless. In OTT and movies, the environment is a bit more relaxed, but it also depends on how the production is scheduled and many other factors,” he says.
