Sujata: All’s well that ends well!! Well, the show has not ended, but good things did come up last week. Sujata trapped Menka with the help of Veeresh cleverly and sent her behind the bars. Veeresh wants to get back to Sujata and in the midst of the drama he does have Sujata with him forever, and finally their family is united... But this is just a temporary phase like always, with Sujata’s turmoil of facing death soon. Let's see how it can turn the tides here!!Saas vs Bahu: This reality show was worth a watch and totally unique as it was publicised. The competition between Saas and Bahus were totally noteworthy. The first week, Bahus stole the show with breathtaking performances and their guests adding the glitz to it, not to forget the splendid appearance by Husein who along with Juhi was a fire on the stage. Audiences definitely cheered this whole heartedly. Let's see in the coming weeks, how the show fares up!!Kuch Iss Tarah: The story was perfect when it started. The end didn’t match well with the audiences. Still it comes here, as it breathed its last, last week. The lovely adorable chemistry between Ranbir and Kanya now would never be on the screens. Sad to see the show in its abrupt ending, but the case is always like that when you only know how to extend the storyline and don’t know how to wind up. Anyhow, this was the ONLY show which was really a different tale among the usual K-dragged soaps!! We wish luck to all the actors in Kuch Iss Tarah and hope to see them in upcoming projects soon! Sapna Ka Baabul Bidaai: The show had indeed some interesting points, with Ranveer-Ragini fight and Sadhna-Alekh's attempt to make Ranveer and his Anamika together, the track was enough to glue in the audience.. Ever since Ranveer and Ragini's "Innocent" Love story has been initiated, the show has picked up ever since! As every day passes, it manages to keep viewers biting nails, so let's see what happens now!Banoo Main Teri Dulhann: Ever since one of the most Vital characters Bharat Singh has entered the show it has been captivating the eyes of the audience once again.... Bharat being Hanuman to his Vidya Mami aka Divya this week, and seeing the so-called 'Mother-Son' reunion, it was interesting to see that the audience knows that Bharat wants to destroy the evil deeds of his mother...However, the twist has indeed glued back the audience!!

Teen Bahuraniyaan: Something is surely wrong is this show now! Suddenly from happy versions it ended on a very sad note last week... all the three Bahuranis are shown not to lose hope and believe that one from their husbands is alive but don’t know whose husband it is!! This continued for a long time, and the three Maharanis supporting them too. But what provided a jerk was it showed that Rohit and Mahesh are dead, and Sameer is seen nowhere in the picture, and with new entrant Shaguna creating more troubles, the show is going in the doldrums for sure!!
Kumkum - Ek Pyaara Sa Bandhan: Sad to see this show here, but it’s true... Last week, the show dragged endlessly, with Chanchal as psychologist to treat Sumit and falling in love with him, on the other hand Kumkum too got involved in making Chanchal come closer to Sumit so that she can be freed, and with Ramola getting to know the truth of the so-called marriage between Sumit & Kumkum and Sumit sending Kumkum back to Sundernagar, this show right now is losing the charm, because even the humour element which was its plus point seems to have vanished all of a sudden!! People are expecting more from this show especially at this stage now, and hopefully in the coming weeks, we will have better and the best of it!!
Dil Mil Gaye: Though viewers will be shocked to see this show here, it is unfortunate that we must add it... Irrespective of the fact there were some interesting moments in the show, there has been a lot of unnecessary dragging offlate. Armaan is almost always held wrong in front of his Honewale "Sasurji" Dr.Shashank Gupta... We hope that Armaan's image can be cleared and the dragging cuts can end so that we can have some interesting moments in the show... and what has happened to being in a Hospital?? It has been a long time since we have seen some proper doctoral procedures, or medical appointments... come on Interns, bring some of the reality back!Baabul Ki Aangan Chootey Naa: When Aastha turned negative overnight, it came as a shock to the audience, and then the creatives didn't take long to reveal that Aastha's look alike Payal has been responsible for all the evil deeds. Shubh knowing it's not his Aastha makes him helpless and he can't do anything. It's depressing to see the much in Love Jodi Aastha-Shubh apart and Payal gaining false sympathy from the family, if it continues this way, the show will have a downfall. Tt definitely needs to have a twist where in Shubh and Aastha come back together!!Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki: Evil triumphs over good, this week, Trishna succeeded in her evil plans proving herself to be a "Mahan" bahu in front of all the shows juniour artists (news readers.etc) and Parvatti has been sent to mental asylum. Tannu's death which was a hot topic of controversy didn't work well for the show, but this twist seems to bring a downfall; at one end, the Agarwals can't do anything to save their ideal daughter in law... we hope this show will improve once again soon!
