Dil Mill Gaye: Dil Mil Gaye definitely deserves a Thumbs Up this week... Since Armaan's wound starts bleeding on duty, he goes off to fix it and then Riddhima offers to help him. Finally, after a few dialogues, the big moment occurs... Riddhima confesses her love to Armaan, which is a big day for AR fans!! They share some cute moments, and this past week definitely marks the beginning of this special relationship growing even more... Dil Mill Gaye is still continuing to win the hearts of many with this cute and loving jodi, plus all of the other characters!Kuch Iss Tarah: This past week, Kuch Iss Tarah was definitely a treat to watch for all of the viewers... with Aamir Ali's entry into the show as a tapori taxi driver. His character definitely adds some humour, as he tries and makes a fool of Ranbir... now, Ayaan is kidnapped, but it's all for the better, right?? Kanya is still continuing to stand up to Ranbir, and her relationship with her father has once again come back... the show is definitely moving along now!Saarthi: Bhoomi marries Rudr in the crossover episode of Kumkum and Saarrthi. Rudr’s intention to marry Bhoomi is to get her out of the way, as she is becoming a hindrance in his quest to destroy the Goenka’s. It will be interesting to watch if Rudr and Bhoomi fall in love with each other. Does Rudr succeed in taking his revenge from the Goenkas? The suspence is continuing to grow and grip the viewers... let's see what happens!Sangam: The show finally found itself a position in this category. The week was entertaining enough, seeing Janhavi aka Ganga ready to start a new chapter of her life, getting to know that Kaveri is marrying none other than Sagar and knowing his real identity, was more than enough for audiences to raise anxiety whether these two long lost lovers will actually meet or not, and if this was not enough then we had Madan back on our screens. What else we want? A promising drama ahead for sure!!Doli Saja Ke: There is nothing better than seeing one given a second chance in life. This past week, exactly this was shown in the show. Anupama, the widow of Chaitanya finally gets her second shot at life with Daksh through the permission of her dad. Though evil forces are at bay waiting to create more misunderstandings, Vikram is all set to give Anu what she deserves and that is a happy married life. The thrill builds up as the wedding day approaches... definitely a Thumbs UP for Doli Saja Ke!!

Thumbs Down

Meri Awaaz ko Mil Gayi Roshni: Sometimes good things come to an end, and unfortunately, this is the case with this serial. It’s sad to see Sudha suffering so much, and her dismay of not loving her own daughter. This show really has lost its grip, and thus becomes our first show of this year to be closed down in 2008. One advice for these kinds of unique shows which start on a really different note; keep your originality intact, otherwise you are bound to lose the audience’s interests.Kasamh Se: There is too much evilness in Kasamh Se, as mockery of marriages are being made. Meera assumes that Bani can't be a single parent and wants to take care of Ganga, just because she is a waitress and leaves in chawl. The creatives are showing no hope on returning Jai and Bani, and much to viewers disgust, they are apparently showing Jai and Meera closer together. The misunderstandings between Bani and Daksh are still growing as well... creatives, please wake up!

Alladdin: This show is normally so good, but unfortunately, it deserves a thumbs down for this week. But no worries... atleast for now, right? Jafar "chacha" is still winning over Alladdin, and once Alladdin finds out that he's evil, then hopefully the show will become better... for now however, this show will remain in thumbs Down. Let's hope for a better outcome in the coming weekend!Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi: Once again, the Viranis are dumped out of the house... and what does this mean?? More repetition in the show! They are shown being in the "dumps", and the storyline isn't moving any faster now... can we please have something more exciting this week? Please and thank you!Banoo Main Teri Dulhann: Although hopefully the next few weeks will be better, this past week was not so great. Sindoora is continuing to reign, with only a few Sagar-Vidya scenes... when will Vidya go to Benares? And will Sagar want to find her? The suspence will continue to grow, but until we see a good improvement, it's going to be a thumbs down... atleast for this past week.

Doli Saja Ke... my latest favourite show! The new characters are interesting and the episodes are usually engaging. Now all that's left is for the creatives to cut down on the sadism a bit (poor dear Anupama... how much can she suffer?) and this show will rock even more!
