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...





Thumbs Up




Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki: This show has started its new life with a fresh cast and fresh story. The show now focuses on Pari’s daughter Rani and her journey towards love and freedom. New families comprised of Rani’s future-in-laws were brought up for us, and Rishabh as Rani’s husband was introduced. Overall it saw a fresh lease of life, and with its simple narration we hope we will enjoy the journey as much as we enjoyed Rani’s and Pari’s journey!!Main Teri Parchaii Hoon: Another Rajshri show needs to be counted here!! This show again carries the same trend of Rajshris, saying the story with simplicity. The children who get deprived of their mother due to an accident find Aanchal as their predecessor. And Aanchal too wants to be with them as she herself has not come over the fact that these children has lost their mother because of her fate. The story has successfully managed to hold the interest of the audiences till now and we hope it continues to hold even further!Waaris: Talk about a full-blown first week! The new serial Waaris on Zee TV has definitely managed to capture its viewers already. We saw the introductions of the main characters, and the show is unique so far. Viewers got to see the on-screen chemistry of Shankar and Gayatri, and the two brothers, Shaurya and Shankar. The entry of Rudra Pratap Singh was also certainly another episode to keep in mind, as he and his wife, Yashodara recollect some moments. Though the exact reason for Rudra and Shankar's dealings are yet to be outwardly spoken, the suspence of this show continues to grow. Who exactly will become the next 'waaris' is also unsure... We hope it stays unique and as interesting as the first week was!Mohe Rang De: The channel and its shows define the concept “Difference” in its true style!! This one show talks about two different individuals Rajbir and Kranti and their ideologies. A period drama set in 1942 – in a Quit India movement, where it speaks on a greater volume about the freedom of this country. Right now, we just saw how these two different people meet and exchange their views. The show is surely a different attempt from the regular dose of entertainment; let’s see how it marches ahead!! For now, it’s a sure shot winner!! Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat: It's definitely refreshing to see some sweet Yudhishtir and Rani scenes. Now that Yudhishtir has no problems in proclaiming his love for Rani in front of the family, he will go to any extent to save her, even making Bhanumati apologise to Rani. Now, that was certainly something we were waiting for! We hope that Rani herself will also stand up for her rights, and be more open to Yudhishtir and the family... now the only problem is when the family will know the real truth of Choti Rani Sahiba. We hope that happens soon, but for now, let's keep the sweet Rani-Yudi scenes coming, please!




Thumbs Down



Pari Hoon Main: This show really started on a sugary note, as a story of two identical people Nikki and Pari who managed to hold the interest of the audience with their journey initially. But right now both are struggling with their identities; Nikki wants to reveal her truth to Raj, but doesn’t find a way, here Karan and Pari are getting closer, but as far as the story is concerned nothing is moving right. When will this hide and seek game find its own place, the creative of the show only knows! Let's hope for less confusion and a faster-paced track, please!
Grihasti: Sad to see this show here, after its promising start! The story is heading nowhere. It seems the evil is winning over good... again. Veera creating enough problems for Simar and now Rishi supporting his mom over Simar is leading to this pair’s breakup. Now this we have seen innumerable times in innumerable shows. The entire week was gone in showing this cat and mouse game. Let’s hope that Rishi gets able proof against Veera and support Simar for a change. At least it would be different to get away with the tag of Mamma’s boy!! Till then, the audience will just have to bear with the show and keep their patience!Annu Ki Hogayi Wah Bhai Wah: Although the track with Harjeet is quite humourous, it needs to end soon for the serial to move on. Viewers are waiting for more Ashu and Annu scenes, and with Harjeet in the way, it doesn't seem like it's going to happen soon. If this track ends soon, then viewers can see something new and fresh, and different in this show. We hope we can see more of that freshness soon!Sujata: Unfortunately, this serial is dragging. With the mysterious woman yet to be revealed, Sujata keeps seeing her but is unable to identify her. Also, it seems that Menka is not going to leave Viren anytime soon, as she keeps imagining herself in Sujata's place, as Viren's wife. When will Sujata find out about Menka? And once she finds this out, will she talk to Viren about it? We certainly hope that Sujata will get her justice soon!Humari Betiyon Ka Vivaah: Unfortunately, this show deserves a Thumbs DOWN based on last week's episodes. When will Raj and Trishna unite again? And how long will that keep going? When will Trishna answer back to Deep's mom, since it seems like not a very good relationship is brewing between them? We hope to see happier times in this show!
