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

Banoo Main Teri Dulhann: Dulhann viewers were filled with treats this last week, as Sagar confesses and realises his true love for Vidya, and wants to go to Benares to find her. The picturisation of "Tumse Hi" with Mahi-Shabd, Priyam-Kangna, and Nahar-Saloni pushing Sagar along the right path was also one of Dulhann's best scenes till date. The storyline is moving, and yes, nobody can keep Sagar and Vidya apart for too long... we can't wait until they have their reunion, hopefully next week! Dharam-Veer: The audiences missed Rajat Tokas in action for a while and were praying that he comes back very soon on tellydom, and the actor didn’t disappoint as he is back with this new show. A show which talks about friendship and brotherhood giving prominence to its pre-historic saga, it's jam-packed with some action sequences along with some good performancesas well! Plus the famous pair of Prithviraj Chauhan is back with this show…now the question is - Will it be able to keep the same intact? Let's wait and watch!
Teen Bahuraniyaan: Finally, Nisha's truth is exposed, and best of all, Sameer exposes it in front of everyone! All the Sameer-Janki fans have time to rejoice now, as the loving couple is back together. Times are getting better for the teen bahuraniyaan... they are standing up to their saasumas, but one mystery still awaits - who is the killer of Vrinda's children? We hope it's not Sameer... we'll have to wait and see what happens!Say Shava Shava: This 11-day musical reality show is gripping the audiences everyday with the performances from the contestants - and the judges, Mr. "K" Karan Johar and Simi, are just as great in the show as well! Besides already showing us their acting talent, these 8 actors have to prove their singing abilities as well - although we witnessed the three sad eliminations of Manish Goel, Aman Verma, and Juhi Parmar, we can expect to see a lot more in this short but fun-filled show - and we are waiting for the upcoming performances!Raja ki Aayegi Baarat: This serial has got a good start. The show has a good ensemble cast and everyone is acting really well. It is refreshing to see a story of simple people being told so nicely, and in an innovative manner as well. We can hope that the serial will take a great story ahead and won't disappoint us!

Thumbs Down

Kasturi: This show now at least has come to a saturation point. The Revenge track is over, and also the show took a year leap & we see Kasturi still believing that Robbie is Raunak's killer. Here the audiences want to see Robbie-Kasturi union and once again we are disappointed over the same reasons. How long with the creatives thirst the audiences' expectations like this? It's high time... please do something!Santaan: The story lost its charm from the past weeks. What started as a struggle for Parikshit-Gayatri is now turning to be a sore one!! The changing hair line of Gayatri and the constant ups and down of her children is lessening the interest. To prevent losing the essence of the show, we're definitely going to need some kind of new twist - but when will this happen? We'll have to wait and watch... for now, please move the storyline faster! 

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi: Surprisingly, TRPs call this show as "No.1"... But really, there's not much anything new to offer - this past week saw Karan-Nandini’s engagement but what could not be understood is if you are so poor and are struggling to survive then how could you even think of this ceremony? If this question is answered, we've still got loads more... but aren’t we tired of seeing chawl tracks which keeps on repeating somewhere or the other?Baabul Ka Aangan Chootey Naa: Unfortunately, although this show just started last week, the beginning has not been very promising. We have happiness in one episode and then sadness in the next ones?? It doesn't seem like Aastha's character is bold either, and it turns out that her brother Vinay doesn't care much about the family either... Let's hope that next week, Aastha's love interest and our 'hero' enter the story and add to something here!Ramayan: Sadly the show which emptied the streets few years back, doesn't seem to find its place for today's generation. The show has marvelous sets, and an effort from the creatives is also worth applause but still the show won’t catch the nerves of today’s generation as it has really nothing new to offer as a face value. A little disappointing show from the makers who themselves created history some time back!

This is the most shameful act from the part of a polician. It is really the politicians who do not want to eraticate the caste system. In the 21st century are we still going to cry about the caste system in India. In fact when there is a mention of punjabis, maharashtrans, bengalis etc there is no hue and cry about anything. Why pick up these words and try to make it a National Issue.

There are many more things to do to improve India. The politicians should stop finding faults of petty things and start working for the benefit of the society.
