Thumbs up or
Thumbs Down - A weekly column in our News Hub - Telly Buzz that will give the latest twists and turns in the serials brought about to capture its' audience. A thumbs up is where the audience likes the track and a thumbs down is where it fails to meet the expectations. So watch out every week to see Aye and Naye By the Crazy Creatives.






Thumbs Up




Baa Bahu aur Baby: This is one show which has been unique right from its conception, and we are proud to say that it has stayed unique!! The weekend is treated by The Thakkars who entertain us with a meaning. The audience were indeed given a huge shock with Pravina’s death, but the new arrivals in the form of Devki and Birju have set the show rolling again. The crispy masala of the Thakkar household is all set to entertain us as usual... We would just say that ‘Hats off’ to the creatives for not relenting to the usual melodramas we see for the other shows!Left Right Left: Captain Rajveer left the show and the show lost its tempo. But still it has managed to grab our attention with its dwindling storyline. Naina is in full action this time to expose Lala Gehlot in front of the entire world, and does it with style... But the question remains – will the show ever have the answer of getting back their whole 6 cadets? Only time and the makers can tell!! Till now they managed to entertain us and we hope we get entertained till it’s on air, so let's hope the Creatives can continue to keep its audiences gripped to this show!Champion Chalbaaz No.1: 'Wow' is what we can say here!! This show just started on Saturday, and it's already attracting many viewers. The judges, Cyrus Broacha and Sajid Khan, are both hilarious and the concept of the show is very interesting. We can't wait to see what the contestants do next to others, and what fun they have... definitely a fun-filled show to watch!Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan: Although the family is full of sorrow from Suryakant's death, there is a possibility that he could still be alive. Lakshmi is now fighting for her own rights, and it seems like Dev and the sisters are winning against Pavitra... Although there are some setbacks, the show still seems to be moving on in terms of the 'vamps' of the show. We hope to see some happiness and for Pavitra to be caught soon!Choona Hai Aasmaan: This week, Choona Hai Aasmaan was full of twists and turns, as everyone in the HAWKS have proof that the traitor is one amongst them. This caused a lot of different things to happen - Sameera almost wanting to quit the team, and Samrat having a huge anger outburst... but who is this "unfaithful HAWK"?? Hopefully viewers will find out this week, as the suspence continues to grow and grip the audiences!


Thumbs Down



Kasturi: To come or not to come was the question of this show in this section, but finally it made its way out here. The creatives don’t know what they are showing and the audience don’t know what they are watching. Kasturi wants revenge of her first husband Raunak from her current husband Robbie and her mother-in-law is dead sure to foil her sweet daughter-in-law’s plans. Did that sound ‘clichéd’? Did we hear it somewhere before? Have we seen it somewhere before? Yes we have, and that's why Kasturi is a Thumbs Down this week... please show us something fresh and new!!Kumkum - Ek Pyaara Sa Bandan: Either the creatives of this show have lost their creativity or the audiences are not tired to see this ‘so called’ creativity. First Sharman married Sia, and now Neeti married Rahul -meaning that Neeti now became readymade mother of Rahul’s two teenage girls... sounds confusing, doesn't it? And to worsen all of this, Sumit-Kumkum - the very lovable and adorable pair of Indian television - are not showing any signs of patch up. This show which is always packed with powerhouse performances, now seems to be deteriorating... please, bring it to a Thumbs Up!Kasamh Se: Unfortunately, this show deserves a Thumbs DOWN for this week. Although Jai and Bani finally met, why did the scenes of their meeting have to be prolonged for two days?? The storyline continues to drag, as Jigyasa continues to try and think of some other plans... Meera turns into the "other woman" in Jai and Bani's life, and once again we have to see this triangle... please Creatives, move the storyline on a bit!

Virrudh: When Vikram told Sushant that his and Vasudha's relationship is not one of love, we, as the viewers, thought that hopefully, the storyline would move on in a good way. But it seems like Vedika is not ready to accept this, and the misconceptions between Sushant and Vasudha are growing as well. Please Creatives, bring back the interesting storyline here and don't break up Vasudha and Sushant even more!Love Story: This show, although usually always interesting the viewers, is brought down to the Thumbs DOWN section of this week - however, it's not because it has stopped attracting the viewers. The Akash-Shruti is continued to being loved by all, but why are the Creatives slowly showing Dev as negative? His shades of grey are scaring us all, because we are so used to seeing him as a positive character all this time. Hopefully he isn't a negative character in the story!
