Thumbs Up

Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan:

This show had rocking weeks lately. Finally Bhavishya was charred to death by Saraswati and her sisters with support coming from Savitri - their mother, thus bringing an end to his evil acts. Now what follows is Saraswati’s trial in the court and it’s to be seen how she will be seeking justice with the help of Damini. On the other side Kajri getting pregnant and using this pregnancy as a means to reenter Garodia household is adding to the drama as well. As of now the viewers are happy to learn one lesson that there is only death for the heinous crime you do to torture a woman!!Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi:

The ardent viewers of original Tulsi were ecstatic to have her back in Virani household and that too in typical Ekta style. She was brought to ShantiNiketan in a true style by Karan – her adorable son thus exposing all the evil acts of Juhi and Mandira and putting them in jail. On the plus side we had Lakshya in a new avatar coming back to the household and Eklavya back in action giving a way for a love triangle with KT. So we have lots in store to watch as there is a mystery still revolving around Karan-Nandini’s long-lost son and Mandira being out of jail too for the umpteenth time.Kasamh Se:

As of now this show comes here. Well the reason is quite simple with Jai getting married to Pronita in true Ekta style again without knowing the fact that Pronita is his BANI!! They have their task cut out as they wish to tame the kids and also to expose Meera. Well this is what we call high intensity drama where as of now the stage is set for some cat and dog fight between Meera and Pronita aka Bani while Jai holds on to Pronita as support!!Dus Ka Dum:

This show had a blatant start!! With a superstar like Salman Khan around, the show is full of energy, emotions, songs, dance and full masti along with really whacky questions to win the amount. He is the prime reason for the show getting so much of accolades since he puts his effortless charm and brings glitz and glamour in his own way and the contestants though have not won money on a larger basis, get excited to be with the star i.e. Sallu mia... As of now the show is a winner, we just hope it doesn’t get boring as weeks pass by!! As of now welcome Salman Khan to the world of television as we say “Tummein hain Dum”!!Mera Sasuraal:

Celebrations all around in the television circuit!! Here too, we finally had Omi-Heer marriage after a lot of trials and tribulations. Samar gets thrown out of the house for his evil acts against the family but not before he takes pledge to destroy the family in true filmy style. So we can imagine that this marriage will not be easy for Omi and Heer in the coming weeks, but till then enjoy the blissful marriage of the couple and bless them, what say!!

Thumbs Down


What will be the show without its main lead!! Nothing right, yes it is!! The last week was a full packed drama, where one thought that finally Raunak will get exposed but alas, in return we were given 440 volts by seeing that Maasi is a supportive factor to Raunak in his heinous acts, and shoots Kasturi, giving her the so called death , not only that she blames Robbie for shooting Kasturi. Before this we had to see some horrid acts by Raunak on Kasturi which literally gave a feeling that censors should apply for television strictly. Alas! What can we say, again a long separation for Robbie-Kasturi in store, and the evilness to be continued, can’t we have a decent out coming for the show ever!!

Yahan Ke Hum Sikandar:

The show has failed to draw attention of the audience...This youth based show, has been dragged with many unnecessary tracks and needs a twist or simple end...

Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii:

Journey of Om, Parvati, which started off few years back and maintained to glue in controversies is now losing its charm..Be it Agarwal's loosing their wealth or the rebellious grandchild or the controversies with which the show was filled, failed to get back the viewers interest...The present track is indeed too monotonous, dragged and predictable....The show needs a twist which gets back its loyal audience.


The show had witnessed a beautiful love story between the main patrioginist Soham and Kalyani. However the misunderstandings between the love birds has been sorted out, but they are still maintaining distance for the sake of Kalyani's sister and Soham's wife Kritika, who does work as per her mother in law's wish which has got many tears in her little sister's eyes...Audience is simply tired of the unnecessary triangle and wants to see Soham Kalyani reuniting and Krithika knowing the entire truth....

Pari Hoon Main:

The show which started off as a breadth of fresh air, following footsteps of "Cindrella" and inspired by "Prince and the Pauper" has now started to follow basic mantras of the daily sagas..Raj and Pari's romantic journey has a big obstacle of misunderstandings created by Jhanvi...However at one end Karan has a broken heart as he finally comes to know the fact that Nikki loves Raj, on the other hand Raj hates Nikki/Pari as he thinks she cheated on him and is going around with Karan. Now this confusion is loosing the attention of the audience as this fun filled show is becoming depressing...

Please note: There are lot of shows and to give fair chance to all we try to cover all the shows alternatively!The views expressed are solely by the author.

Kasturi is definitely a rocking serial mainly because of Robbie rock star- but agree that it is trying viewer patience with the evil Raunak having an upper hand and Masi turning out a villainess- When will the lovers unite?
