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



Grahasti: This show has taken a good start in the afternoon slot. What we saw was that Doctors tell Balraj that he doesn’t have enough time to live now, he gets shattered and decides to be with his daughters and fulfill the dreams he saw for them, and also provide a shelter to them before he dies by giving good families to them; this indeed was a well emotional saga covered through out the week. Let’s see how this show now moves ahead!!Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi: This entire week was a celebration for Karan-Nandini fans. Tanya’s truth got exposed and eventually Karan – Nandini got married, bringing an end to the bitterness and trauma which existed through out. But what still holds the question is this – If Tanya didn’t have Karan-Nandini’s son then who is holding their son now? Is this an entry for Mandira or someone else…well, one can expect anything, right? For now, we give Kyunki... a Thumbs UP!Amber Dhara: Last week, this serial received a Thumbs Down, but this past week, the storyline certainly got better and moved faster. Amber finally admits as to why she has been taunting Dhara, and we see the sweet relationship between the two sisters again. Unfortunately, they have agreed for separation - but will this happen? Hopefully the efforts of Akshat and Kunal will not go to waste in trying to arrest Monty... we all hope for the best!Chaldi Da Naam Gaddi: This show is definitely not losing its spark... with the new tricks and pranks of Lollypop continuing to ensue, the "Balle Balle Bhatinda Waale" is continuing to also have problems but always solve them with a bit of comedy and humour to it! The sense of 'family' and humour is still being maintained and this show is surely a popular one for all the families to watch.Dil Mill Gaye: This serial definitely gets a Thumbs UP, due largely in part to KSG's extraordinary performances with Riddhima in Kasauli and also the rest of group when he returns to Sanjeevani. It was also because of the return of Nana, one of the show's most popular guest characters who comes back with a bang. For once, one of the patients has been given more of a track than just playing cupid to AR and it was truly entertaining. The guy jumped on to a fellow patient's bed, then he demonstrated "flying" to Dr. Rahul. We definitely got some fine moments from the actors!


Thumbs Down


Kasturi: Again, Kasturi had a disappointing week for Robbie-Kasturi fans. Robbie getting angry over Kasturi and getting desperate to marry Anita, Kasturi deciding to be a mutual and loyal wife to Robbie, and getting into a fight with Anita over the same and not let her succeeding into her plans is all that we can talk about with this show... Seems like the plot is dragging, please move the storyline faster!Raja Ki Aayegi Baarat: What started as a good start for the show is now resulting into a dragging one. Rani getting harassed at every step and all the time someone or the other trapping her for their good evil reason is somewhat becoming monotonous... Also the poor display of the main protagonist is turning the tables upside down for the show. People would love to see more of Yudi & Rani but eventually are not getting their worth. For this time it’s a downer, let's see what comes next for us!

Teen Bahuraniyaan: Unfortunately, though this show has been on the high spot for sometime, it sadly gets a Thumbs DOWN for this past week. Although Sumeet finds out the truth about his children, what is the rest of the family going to do? With Smriti Irani taking a break from the show, where will the character of Vrinda Massi go? Bindiya's story is also getting sidetracked, as viewers are also awaiting to see how she continues to try and make her mark in the working world. A little more flow and focus would be beneficial for this show.. let's hope it does better next week!Khwaish: What is going on in this show? Azaan's mum seems to be completely against Afreen now. And Afreen is compelled at the moment, to not tell the truth to Azaan and the rest of the family... which results in more distance between Afreen and Azaan. It seems like this loved pair is slowly distancing apart, and with Nadira also trying to push Azaan's mom to go against Afreen, things don't seem to be getting better. Hopefully Afreen and the others will speak up soon!Saat Phere: There is a lot of confusion going around in this serial, with property problems arising. Though Jiji is still not aware of the fact that the 'real' Saloni is alive, she throws water on the property documents and doesn't realise that she has brought the real Saloni and given all the property to her. Now, everyone knows Saloni is real except the person who brought her... can we have a more clear version of this sometime soon?
