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




Kumkum - Ek Pyaara Sa Bandhan: Thanks to the wonderful getups by our own Sumit, this show is worth a watch!! He entered the household as Hasmukh and enthralled with his cute antics towards his own brother Ratan. Plus there was an icing on the cake when Kumkum too realized that Sumit is none other than her childhood friend and their sizzling chemistry which still makes the show alive and gives a refreshing change among the regular dramas!! We are enjoying!!Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil: Heer and Prem... will they, won't they? Besides that though, viewers finally got see in the past week, Heer confessing her love to Prem and asking him to marry her... definitely a must-watch scene! Gayatri also stood up against her husband finally, and it seems like things are definitely going forward in this show. We also can't forget Preet's humour and how he is trying to keep the family together as well... let's keep this show on its peak!Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar: The game is over, the results are out, and we had our first Superstar, Rahul Vaidya!! The show successfully completed its run, with weeks supported by lots of emotions and drama, quick and fast moments. The finale was a treat to watch, with the sophisticated Bipasha Basu, the charm of Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan, Sonu Nigam, the stars from serials and Chote Ustaads... nobody can be forgotten in this memorable finale! In the end, all's well that ends well!! We move on from here to just locate if there is another Superstar around, and let's not forget to congratulate all the participants, and all the best to them all!Banoo Main Teri Dulhann: Divya finally regains her memory regarding the past... and viewers get to see some memorable Divya-Sindoora 'battle' scenes! That was certainly a treat to watch, but the main question is that will Divya be able to convince Amar that Sindoora is evil?? The suspence is growing, but a major plus point for this serial is that Divya has regained her memory... now we are waiting for that to happen to Amar! Annu Ki Hogayi Wah Bhai Wah: Harjeet's entry into the serial has certainly added to the humour in the episodes! Viewers also get to see some great Ashu-Annu scenes, as Ashu is trying his level-best to find some ways to meet Annu. Although the storyline is kind of dragging, watching all the humour and cute romance in the show is definitely a treat for the viewers. Now we are just waiting to see what happens next!




Thumbs Down



Baabul Ka Aangan Chootey Naa: This show which started on a slow and good note, is a little bit on its receiving end. With Swayam's entry in the show, it did manage to grab eyeballs, but now the triangle between Swayam-Aastha-Shubh is showing its results. Aastha pretending to be Payal for Swayam and distancing herself from Shubh unintentionally is going little uneasy with the viewers, especially those who have loved this pairing from the beginning.Now that the shocking twist is around the corner, we just have to face more of Shubh-Aastha's separation and the trauma!! Not again, please! 
Teen Bahuraaniyaan: The track of Kajal posessing Bindiya's body is going too far now... can we see something else, please? Viewers miss the old Bindya and her sweet nature... hopefully the show can move on from this dragging track. Let Kajal leave Bindiya, and let there be peace! Definitely Payal is the one who needs this the most, as she is getting blamed for so many problems in the Gheewala house! Even if the family is getting suspicious of Bindiya, it's still not enough for Kajal to leave her body. Let the track move a little faster, please!Grihasti: Veera's endless animosity is really dragging. The viewers still don't know the reason of Veera's anger towards the family, and why her sister goes hyper everytime she sees a pic of Balraj! Not to mention Tauji being the annoying chauvinist, always going on and on about how worthless women are. When is the torture going to end and women going to finally take over?! Amrit is the same as well... come on, we need some boldness and bravery in this show, please!Saath Saath Banayenge Ek Aashiyaan: A show that started off on a unique storyline where East meets West, has now turned the typical Saas Bahu saga with the same old rona dhona. The show now revolves only around Rekha's endless schemes to kick the DILs out. Liza taking care of Vikrant is going a little over the top... she changes his clothes, feeds him with her hands, etc. A little bit too unrealistic! The only saving grace of Saath Saath are the cute scenes between Uday and Lajwanti, but unfortunately they aren't enough!
Santaan: Now it seems like Kartik is also distancing himself away from the family... which is exactly what shouldn't happen! Kartik is listening too much to his wife, and it seems like the family isn't as close-knit as before. We hope that his wife's truth will be revealed soon so it can clear the confusions!
Please note:
