Merging 'Ishqbaaaz' and 'Dil Boley Oberoi' - a smart move or another blunder?

Ishqbaaaz was the first show on Indian television to have a spin off...

2017-07-11T20:41:00Z


Star Plus' two popular shows, Ishqbaaaz and Dil Boley Oberoi finally merged to become one yesterday, and we couldn't wait to review if it works out well or disappoints us yet again. While the very idea of a spin-off did come across as fascinating initially, it did not work well in terms of TRP.

But, with yesterday's episode, we think that things for the show will surely be on a rise. The episode from yesterday marked an important start for the 1 hour episodes as it portrayed the knok-jhok between all the three couples, and, at the same time, gave us a hint at things getting better as well. The announcement of Shivaay (Nakuul Mehta) and Ragini's (Additi Gupta) ENGAGEMENT happens post which, the latter is happy, while Anika (Surbhi Chandna) and Shivaay are broke.



The good, or rather the best thing about the merger turns out to be the greater screenplay that the other two couples, Gauri (Shrneu Parikh) - Omkara (Kunal Kulbhushan Jaisingh) and Rudra (Leenesh Mattoo) - Bhavya (Mansi Srivastava) will get. So that means, no more complaints from the viewers.



While the screenplay of the three couples will run longer, the brother trio and the girltrio will display some khidkitod performances as well. And, all that'll follow in the form of the girls V/S the boys. This would be an equally worthy watch.



Lastly, just like the end of yesterday's episode saw the two trios rejoice, gradually, the three couples will come together as well, thereby keeping the viewers entertained and satisfied at the same time.



After the first one-hour episode, we think that the idea to do this was definitely a smart move on the makers' part, and this sure will work wonders in the near future.

Elation 2017-07-12T10:49:43Z The reason for bad trp's is due to bad story. Instead of merging they could have focused on story n see the results.
Shrenu Parikh, u deserve the best :)
