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. So watch out every week to see Aye and Naye By the Crazy Creatives.
Kasturi: This week saw quite a lot of things happening in Kasturi, RaKa fans celebrated as Raunak-Kasturi came together. Before we knew it, RaKa time is up as Raunak is shown to have drowned. Apart from this,the other tracks in the story seem to be developing as well and well..if you agree or not, the Alka-Pooja track sure provides a good laugh and is entertaining.
Baa Bahoo aur Baby: It was hardly a week earlier, that the entire Thakkar parivaar was celebrating and the air around them was filled with laughter and joy..,when suddenly the track has taken a turn. The latest twist in the tale with Praveena being dead has left everyone with their mouth wide open. Also, would like to mention that all the actors gave a brilliant performance in this week of BBB.
Amber Dhara: This new off-beat serial has started off well. A new concept that has been packaged well is going smooth so far. The debutant actors Amber and Dhara are doing a good job with their roles. Now that the two are in Mumbai, everyone who has been following the show are surely dying to know what the future holds for them.
Love Story: This week of Love Story was by far the most thrilling. Kunal's murderer is finally unveiled and we know that it is Bhatti who killed him..but is it really him?? This is where we would like to give the creative directors special credit, as even after unfolding the mystery..,there lie deeper and darker secrets below it, that have left the viewers biting their nails and trying to predict the future.
Saath Phere: The creatives have chosen a different approach to the track this time and we sure like this new attempt. Saloni who has always been portrayed as the epitome of truth and generosity is doing something that noone would have predicted. She wants to put her career in front of her and have it as the top priority leaving back her personal life. Now we know that whatever Saloni does..she afterall does everything for the benefit of her loved ones...but what is it this time is what we want to know.
Rakhi: Zee's soap Rakhi has not been able to impress the viewer's with its storyline. Occupying the afternoon slot, it continues to stay in the dark corner unnoticed. The story of a brother and sister..,it is not able to bring out its best and is a total disapointment.
Kasamh Se:The new Daksh angle of the story is not able to bring back Kasamh Se, its original viewership. Arushi'a constant taunts on the age difference between Jai and Bani get on your nerves after some time, and Ram's character from the charismatic Jai Walia has been reduced to a weak Jai. Also, Prachi seems to be sizzling more in a rival reality show on another channel than her trademark character of Bani.
Karam Apnaa Apnaa: The number of times KAA has appeared in the Thumbs Down column would have surely created a record figure. Shiv's death, followed by Jagmohan's death has not been able to reassure the serial the position that it held a year back. Think new..think out of the box, is all that is left to say.
Naagin: A genre very popular in the 80's..the naagin is back with the same story and the same concept of revenge ..just with new faces and choosing television as the medium. A fantasy story that has been exploited by the silver screen..this new serial has not been able to create a separate audience for itself.
Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein: Running for long on Star Plus,ACHPM till date hasn't been able to find itself a place on the charts. Even though it does have some good points...the packaging of the show is lacks lustre and hence the audience seems to overlook it.
