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
 
 
 
 
 Maakya: This show is keeping the viewers at edge with new twist and turn. Viewers learnt more about Shabdh sister Kamya and are now eagerly waiting about the secret of her charred face.

 Banoo Main Teri Dulhan: Much wanted recovery of Saagar will take place on 25th after a successful operation in Singapore. Well the creative heads are definitely getting scared whether Sagar recovery might lead to low TRPs. Comeon folks I am sure you can think of something out of the box as always.

 Indian Idol - This musical show has somehow managed to stay away from all the unwanted controversies. Like always this week was full of masti and dhamal with some great duet and trio performances highlight being "Ek Chatur Naar". Sunidhi Chahuan's guest appearance added the zing in the show. Suhit failed to make a cut in top 13 finalist.

 Meri Awaz ko Mil gaye Roshini: This serial is soon catching up viewers interest. Sudha and Raj has a small tiff and misunderstanding at the launch party of rich brat Rhea. We all are sniffing that the Creatives will soon plan a triangle love story amongst them. Well unlike hindi movies, serials never unite two loving hearts.

 Thodi Khushi Thode Gam: Happy days are back again at Shah Pariwar House with Dhansukh solving all the problems. Now the much awaited mystery is whether so called twin brother Dhansukh Lal is actually Mansukh Lal. Till then viewers will have to wait and watch the twist and turns.
 
 
 
Thumbs Down
 
 
Sa Re Ga Ma Pa:  As the show got to the Agnipariksha round many talented singers were elminated and controversy child Mouli made it through which as upset some and brought joy to others. The judgements of the latest judge Anand ji have come into question especially regarding Mouli!
 
 Titan Antakshari: This musical show need to be revamped as host Himani and Kunal Asbeen lack lustre. Even the presence of three little champs are unable to steer the show through. Well, for Antakshari to be hit one needs host Anu Kapoor.
 
 Teen Bahuraniya: The show does have a very good comic timing but the Gujrati-Punjabi fight is leaving things on a bad note. Some unwanted insults on Punjabi has created quite an uproar amongst viewers. The producer and the director should be little careful on implanting humor as it might have serious repercussions.
 
 Voice of India: This show has always made news for judges antics and fight. With Aadesh declaring war with Alka that either she stays or he the whole drama has taken quite an ugly turn. Wonder whether Gajendra Singh will ever sing Sa re ga..
 
 Kaajal:  The viewers were glued to see Dev and Kajaal getting married but ofcourse like all serials two loving couples cannot reunite. Amnesia funda came in with Kaajal loosing her memory. The much awaited Dev Kajaal confrontation was a whimper as more misunderstandings were created.

kriti_mahajan 12 years ago LRL should be added to the thumbs down category caus now a days its become very prdicatble and boring.The story line stagnates too!In fact its not just LRL its with all seriels esp the K seriels who in their bid for higher TRP's stretch the story line like gum makin it borin and completely out of context.
Good article there!well written.Well done

snowflake0555
snowflake0555 12 years ago How can you give thumbs down to SRGMP Challenge 2007? Sorry but I don't agree. This week and last week, the contestants have game pretty awesome performences. Most of them improoved but just because of the Mauli thing and bad choices of elimination doesn't make the whole show 'thumbs down'.

&& yay for Maayka and Banoo Mein Teri Dulhaan! =D
memsaab
memsaab 12 years ago Mayka has become interesting but I really hate to see Durga and do not believe that any mother-in-law would stoop soo low. Since I live in US, I still got to know about Kamya but they showed her pic in US episode... so her face is charred.. hmm must be big story.. maybe she got burned by her ex- or in-laws..... as she is also living in her Maayka..

Dulhan.. same old story dragging.. stopped watching some time back. Would love to watch again after Sarad is treated.

Thode Khushi Thode Gam: Only serial in my life that I have not missed a single episode.

Saregamapa: I think Mouli should have been OUT. I wonder why Kalyanji bhai selected her. It reminded me of last year’s Kumar Sanu selecting Debojit over I Sandeep (I think that was his name, guy who wore specs and no hair). I can bet that Srestha sang way toooo far better than Mouli. Mere roungte khade ho gaye when she sang Dama dam mast kalandhar. I felt bad for Raza and Wasi, both good singers but bad luck with their nose and throat problems. Hope to see them back in the show. One of my fav Richa is also out. L

Teen Bahurania: I think the show is good. It is a Gujju show and I think they are not making this serial to make fun of Punjabi but the issue comes as the Gujju mother-in-law hates her Punjabi bahu, first because she was not able to get a Gujju bahu and second because she doesn’t come from a rich family. Well in US episodes, I have not seen any insults. The girl’s parents run highway Dhaba and she is a poor girl.

delhi_princess
delhi_princess 12 years ago this is just 4 indian idol...i don't agree....i think the sunidhi thing was good and all but the writer didn't write about padmanav and i think suhit n padmanav were a big loss 2 indian idol so i don't agree
advil
advil 12 years ago Zee SaReGaMapa gets a thumbs down? On what basis ?

This week perhaps for the first time had a fine display of talent and some just awesome performances from all the contestants.In fact the guys who got eliminated were also very good. There was a questionable decision agreed,its not that she sang badly but compared to her others sang better.Just that one and the whole two episodes get a thumbs down? I dont agree at all.Elimination of good singers is cited as a reason, but when there are so many good singers pitted aginst one another,only the four would make it to the next round.Thats the format of the show.Does that mean every week for every elimination, this show will get only thumbs down?

I wish someone clarifies the basis of this anlysis..
