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.

Thumbs Up Koffee with Karan: Viewers rate the episode last week with bollywood superstars Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol as a must watch.The koffee got hot with the duo shooting back witty answers to karan’s tricky questions. Kasamh Se: Kasam se & Ekta  are on a roll this week. We saw a moment of "de ja vu" as Bani once again took Pia's place at the mandap. Though the motive behind the switch is sweet revenge, however,  it  may turn out to rekindle 2 starcrossed lovers. Indian Idol: There is certain freshness among the singers that makes this realty show hot favorite. With all the singers giving their best week after week, we sure have something to look forward  to. Less of controversies… This show is surely progressing to finding “bharat ki shaan”. Left Right Left: Captain Rajveer has been attacked and Pooja has the red box,Naina realizes her mistake and she and Abhimanyu search for Rajveer, Aalekh has been declared royal guard by Abhimanyu and the audience finally has Rohit. With many gripping plots and secrets to be unveiled this show has the audience glued to their seats. Love Story: This new show directed by Anurag Basu has already weaved a separate audience for itself. An adorable love story between the main lead, this serial has surprised many.Also discovered by this show is the acting potential of the new faces,Mishal and Payal…this Love Story is definitely blossoming.

 

Thumbs Down Betiyaan Apni ya Paraaya Dhan: Krishna’s getting engaged to Karan and what do we see… Parth is alive. Alive just the moment Krishna is to get engaged and ofcourse he’s the good boy, he would sacrifice his love. No..no..thats not the end… things cant end when everything is crystal clear… Karan never did change. Is tellywood running out of good stories and writers? Amul Star Voice of India: While this show has unveiled some great talents, something else has been unveiled as well. The judges’ acting abilities…with the drama that takes centrestage everytime, maybe the show should be renamed as "Stars Fight of India".Ek Ladki Anjaani Si: Husband wants wife to be happy after his death and so makes her hate him…heard this somewhere?? An old formula used unconvincingly, we wonder if the serial doesn’t become anjaana. Karan Apnaa Apnaa: The truth is finally out…Gauri’s tumour and Shiv’s betrayal. Where we on one side have the improved double role of Shiv…on the other hand, once Shiv’s and Gauri’s  best friend Ipshita is trying to make the best use of this emotional gap between them. How come just at the right time, at the right moment… the villain becomes the hero and the heroine becomes the vamp? KumKum: Sumit keeps lying to his dear wife because of Nivi and we now have KumKum as Katara’s murderer. A track that has left everyone sayin ‘enough’… we have the same to say…please do something new.

Jonaki 2007-06-19T08:02:18Z How can KS be given a thumbs up for a bigamist? The star-crossed lovers married each other (supposedly) but how can we forget she came from one mandap to another? In a country where marriage is considered sacrosant, how can a bigamist be given a thums up?

Glad LRL made it in Thumbs up!

Kasamh Se indeed seems to b doing so much better :)

I am disappointed wid Kumkums track too...Have had enough of Nivi n her tricks...Wish we cud get to c a lil bit of younger generation as well...Wats the use of these generation gaps when the story still focuses on Leads being betrayed...Wish we cud c a bit of togetherness btw Sumit n Kumkum as they try to settle their kids down...
