Thumbs Up:

Featured Video

Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan: Betiyaan is surely back on track and is proving to be very entertaining. Kajri taking over the household and making Menaka pay for all those deeds of her is truly worth-watching,although you cannot deny that your hearts go out to Menaka. After some downfall in the creative ideas..Betiyaan is back again to its original form.

Chhoona Hai Aasmaan: The new show on Star One, a sequel to the once popular Saara Aakash is surely following the lead of its predecessor. Abhimanyu's character is definately going great guns with the ladies, and Samrat is not far behind..his flirtatious nature comes across very well. The character of Sameera is quite different from what we see in other shows, and comes across well with the viewers. This new show on Star One is a definite watch out and if you still haven't tuned your channel to this not waste more time.

Dharti Ka Veer Yodha-Prithviraj Chauhan: An offbeat serial, Prithviraj Chauhan has created a niche for itself. Rajat Tokas and Mughda Chapekar had surely created an audience for themselves and had immortalised their characters. The sudden change in the cast and the change from bal prithviraj to yuva prithviraj has definately come as a shock to the viewers..but nevertheless, the young actors have done a brilliant job and this thumbs up to the serial is all because of them.

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs International: The second season of this kids talent show has kicked off with a bang. With Sonu Nigam and Suresh Wadkar adorning the judges places and those innocent looking faces with such powerful voices that can blow you off...this season is sure to do well.

Virrudh: This show has had its peak and has also seen the lows but now its definatly picking up again. Sushant and Vasudha's cute innocent romance reaches out to the viewers. Vasudha's sudden meeting has left every shocked and her handing over all the responsiblity to Vedika is sure caused Vedika a little tension. A lot of loose ends that need to be tied and what happened to Naina and what will Vasudha do many questions and answers that will surely take you by surprise.
Thumbs Down:
Rakhi: This show does not catch the eye of the viewers and the story line is not exceptional either.Raja's decidion to not bring Nilima home and Nandini's 'rakhi ki kasam' brekas him to agree to bring her home but for that he has to face insults from dadi and Aryan...nothin going in the correct path for the serial.

Kaajjal: The new entry of Rakshanda Khan in the serial might cause it to come out of its depressing dullness... but till now it hasnt changed it. Hoping to see some improvement in this show as at one time..this show had the juice and the matter to make it big.

Meri Awaz Ko Mil Gayi Roshni: This show has faded off with time.. a unique concept that it had started with is lost now in the battles of stealing other people's love away. Conflicts and misunderstandings between Raj-Sudha and Ria's constant tries..nothing is working in the favour of the serial.

Raavan: The weekend slot for this mythological serial seems to be non-existent. Based on the life of Raavan, a name that is often associated with evil has not been able to get itself loyal viewers.It has come across as a disappointment on how the producers of the show have not been able to capitalise on such a fascinating story.

Four: The journey of four friends that it started still stands with the tag of 'the journey of four friends'..only that now this journey has become monotonous and it is very easy to pick up your remote and change the channel while your watching it. Although the last episode was surely a treat if you've been loyal to it and have seen every episode till date. Though I would like to applaud the producers of the show for having the ending right on time and not stretching it long for years...for if it wouldnt have ended it would have sure saved itself a spot in the thumbs down column week after week.
