Thumbs Up




Banoo Main Teri Dulhann: After the full-blown 500th episode of Dulhann last Wednesday, viewers certainly felt like they were cloud nine!! Amar apologised to Divya, and they both spent a romantic night together in the outhouse. The chemistry between the two actors really sparked, and it was a fantastic treat for the viewers to watch... 'In Lamhon Ke Daaman Mein' has certainly become a favourite for Dulhann, as it was played during this scene. Although the episodes following after showed Amar starting to get suspicious of Divya, Wednesday's episode was enough to enlighten the entire week. We definitely hope to see more romantic scenes like that one in the future!Dil Mil Gaye: If Dulhann's Amar and Divya had a romantic scene together, then it was Armaan and Riddhima who had the same... finally, both confessed their love to each other face-to-face and had their own bit of romance with 'Raat Ka Nasha' playing in the background. AR fans were surely thrilled to see this happen, and it seems like the two of them can't keep away from each other in Sanjeevani as well! Though Dr. Keerthi has made Riddhima stay with her, Riddhima still passes messages to Armaan through Atul and the others. Definitely a very sweet week for Dil Mil Gaye viewers!Kumkum - Ek Pyaara Sa Bandhan: This show now doesn’t know to lie down. An amazing story line is taking this show into greater heights, and last week, Sumit-Kumkum managed to expose Ratan in front of everyone and brought an end to this drama, as well as Sumit finally proved his innocence to his father, also the compilation of the celebrities for their successful run was worth a watch!! In the coming weeks, we are expecting an eternal love story of Sumit Kumkum to start, so that we could once again take ourselves back to this awesome chemistry!! Way to go, Kumkum!Fear Factor - Khatron Ka Khiladi: The second season kicked off with a bang. The stunts, the events turn you upside down. Plus, all the 13 actresses are successful enough in showing that they are no less than men in doing the stunts. To top it all, Akshay Kumar as the host of the show does a bravo job. Three cheers to the show, and to the anchor for putting up a difficult but a different show! Jasuben Jayantilal Joshi Ki Joint Family: This one show has managed to put up the interest of the audiences for a long time now. Right from its start till today, this joint family has entertained us. Jasuben as the head of the family binds together everyone’s mind and heart with her love and attention. Last week, Jasuben was finally retained her power from Pankor, in a fun filled fashion. Plus, the preparations for the celebrations around Bappa’s Jayantilal’s birthday was worth a watch!! Three Cheers, and Hats Off to this show!

Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil: Is Heer really dead? Or is she going to die? Unfortunately, last week was a dragging one for this show. Viewers were stuck in suspence with Prem and the rest of the family, and there seemed to be no signs of happiness anywhere around... though the only highlight of last week was Balraj finding out that Heer is the daughter of his best friend, the rest of the week was dismal.. we hope to see a faster-moving track soon! 
Main Aisi Kyun Hoon: Seems like this show is not moving anywhere, and we wonder why it's still there on air. So, what we got to see last week was that it seems the whole world has turned against Sanjana and her 'Apne' have once again gotten the better of her by causing hers and Rahul's break-up. Oberoi's secret still remains a secret, and he still seems to be after the Patils, specially Sanju. Mehek is still creating havoc in Karan, and in turn Rekha's life, and it seems no one is able to stop her. Overall, another show on the verge of closure please... either make things better or finish it soon!Kasamh Se: If Vicky, being the actual son of Meera, can turn against his mother, but unfortunately, his efforts to make Ganga and Krishna, step-children of Meera, see that their 'choti maa' is evil, are going to waste. The two girls are refusing to go with Pronita, and this is causing more problems in the house. Now, Meera plans to make Krishna go to jail in revenge of Pronita taking Vicky from her! We wonder what will happen now... atleast the family is being nicer to Pronita sometimes, but 2 out of the 3 children aren't, there is a problem. When will Meera's truth be exposed? We hope it will be done soon!Solhah Singaar: One can never understand why some shows run on air in spite of not having the audiences for the same. This show which started as a simple story of Shagun, is now being dragged endlessly for no reason. So many twists and turns came and gone but still it didn’t manage to hold interest and now when the stories are enough, we had Shikha as the new cat bailing it out with Shagun. Now whosoever is interested in watching these fights, can watch better shows on air!! Please, let us see something new!Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan: Sadness, sorrow, and even more sadness is all that we saw this past ween in Betiyaan. Kajri is definitely winning in adding to the suspicions for Niyathi, as she is beginning to suspect Yuvraj with Kajri. What's more heartbreaking is that Karan gets hit by Rasik on the road... why must one have to kill a character who is the one who is finding out all the truth? We hope to see some more sense in the show, and not always allowing the villains to win - it's high time now!
Please note:
There are lot of shows and to give fair chance to all we try to cover all the shows alternatively! The views expressed in this article are solely by the author.

miraclemun 12 years ago why did MP have to do that?
JA has faulty info and its only good to watch for historical fiction romantic entertainment. The movie is filled with lies about history and I'm glad the Rajputs banned it. The truth never comes out these days and the media will never tolerate the truth about the past in india.
Also, the Mughals are fennetics at record keeping and the the Akbar Nama does not mention the name of Jodha, Akbar did have a rajput wife, but not Jodha, he wasn't a saint either like it showed in the movie.
