Thumbs Up
Ghar Ki Laxmi Betiyaan: This serial is going great guns again. With Kajri’s secret out everyone is waiting with bated breath for this week’s episode. Kudos to creative head for moving the story at such a fast pace.

SaReGaMaPa: Bringing the essence of 60 years of independence...this week the celebrity in the house was the legendary Kapil Dev. While Aneek and Raja shone past the horizon, Mauli, the maiya maiya girl is still fighting past her image and this week didnt help her wither as she fell victim to another bad performance. Challenge-2007 is really heating up as each contestant is evolving with the passing weeks and performing to themselves at their own game.

Meri Awaz Ko Mil Gayi Roshni: Going at steady pace, this week saw Ria's launch and Raj and Sudha's love for each other as Sudha to save Raj, put her own life in danger...this is the true power of love. Also with Sudha's innocence helpig convince Khalil Hasan to be present at the launch, this serial is gathering its audience.

Parivaar- kartavya ki Pariksha: This serial is proving to be the dark horse.Radha impersonating as Malishka and Shaurya by her side, the serial is definately creating ripples in the industry.

Banoo Mein Teri Dulhan : This week has surely brought a smile across the Dulhan fans as after months of wait, Sagar and Vidya have united. Even though Sagar beleives this to be a mistake, we are happy that the story is progressing and with Sindoora's truth in front of Vidya.. this bhartiya naari will go any length to save her husband.

Thumbs Down
Left Right Left: The second season of this "unconventional" serial has come as a major disappointment. After winning the hearts of the nation with its first season, but the serial has lost its natual charm. Rajveer kills Colonel Chandra , Abhimanyu arrests him and Sparks flying for Naina... the serial has not been able to regain its position and with the independence day exit of Rajeev Khandelwal's character, the serial will be losing out on its USP.

Durgesh Nandinii: This show has been stagnant from the past few months..starting off as the story of a strong-willed village girl, this show has changed its route. House fights, constant arguements and children suffering the deeds of their this all that is left for Indian Television?

Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai: Starting afresh, this serial hsa not been able to capture its audience and is still fighting for a place in the industry. This week we saw that Akshay and Prarthana move to their new house and also Sanskriti getting into trouble at a wild party. This serial has been non-existent and we hope that the director and script-writers come up with a good way to promote the show.

Virrudh: A father going stoops so low to destroy his own daughter's life and we have him right here as Dhirendra Rai Singhania. An arrogant, stubborn and cunning man who has spoilt Vasudha and Vedika's life and is now diong so with Shreya and a sister in Shreya who has totally lost her senses and is being influenced by anyone around her. The only good thing left in this serial is the fact that Vasudha-Sushant have set right to forget their misunderstandings and start afresh. This serial has a lot of potential and we hope that with the coming week, it will change its position from thumbs down to thumbs up.

Ek Ladki Anjaani Si: We dont think any serial has made a record like this one, to be spotted on thumbs down week after week.This show has tried everything that the writers could think...from brain tumours to plastic surgery to new characters...the only solution to this problem is- end the show and we think the viewer's wouldnt oppose this either.
