Sapna Babul ka Bidaai: The show has delivered what the audience expected!! Ranvir-Ragini getting engaged was the highlight of the show during last week. People got to see their engagement amidst all the sacrifices being made by them for their families, and Aalekh playing a pivotal role in uniting them. Also what was heart rendering was to see Vasu-Aalekh bonding over the decision of Ranvir-Ragini's marriage. The show truly has blended beautifully with the script playing a major part in the success, and a belief that a dark skinned person can have the right to love and get back the love which she enhances. And for the audiences it continues to be a major treat as they are in for some romantic moments to blossom between Ranvir & Ragini!!Shree: The tag line "Pavitra Bandhan par Ashubh Saaya" has worked for the show at the initial stages at least. The unknown ghost causing hell lot of trouble in Hari's life by not making him  getting married in spite of all the practices, preaching by his sister –in-law has held the nerves of the audiences. Plus Hari & Shree's chemistry is a welcome change to witness!! Now what remains to be seen is how the story is taken.
Miley Jab Hum Tum: Last week in Miley Jab Hum Tum, the audience got to see their two favorite jodis struggle and prepare themselves for exams. On one side we had Mayank and Nupur, who aim to top their class!! On the other hand, Samrat who has made a "cool dude" image for himself and struggles his way to study with Gunjan without having to loose his status in college.Jai Shri Krishna: The little Krishna has captivated the hearts of millions of fans..His baal leela and the cuteness in which makers have shown it is beautiful!! Last week the high points were Durvasa Rishi having Shaksatkar of Krishna and bowing down forgetting his "Ahankar" Indeed something which was loved by everyone.
Chand Ke Paar Chalo: Few weeks back the show went for a complete makeover... Aneesha works under Rahul, and his friendship and fondness for Aneesha is increasing, while Aneesha respects her direct boss Rahul . Rahul's strict brother Arjun and Aneesha have become friends but Aneesa doesnt know one little thing that Arjun is atually the big boss of the company..However there are some fresh cute moments in the show which is loved by the fans...Triangle seems to be on the cards here, next but how and what would happen next seems interesting!!

Maayka – Saath Zindagi Bhar ka: The evil continues to rule!! Yes, this holds true since Durga who changed for a while, once again showed her true intentions of getting Soni out of Jeet's life forever by setting her on fire!! We do understand that a mother can do anything for her son's betterment, but this was the most annoying torture the audiences went through, and if that was not enough, she was successful in throwing Soni out of the house. Another story continued of Angad getting back on the show and into Mahi's life who is already struggling with Shabd's yet to be told reality!! Now comes next is the replacement of Soni, which might work too!! But the script needs a change here, as it is getting monotonous to see Soni crying all the time and Mahi struggling with her own crisis!!Teen Bahuraniyan: We are afraid to say that at its winding up stage, the show lands up here!! We have seen the daughters-in-law getting framed by their evil mothers-in-law innumerable times here.. Plus the change of timings also has not worked for the show lately!! Though now everything is set to be good, we just have to say, that this was another show that in spite of its good cast failed when it came to the story line!!Sangam: Why does it happen that often the lead pairs are left alone to cry, to such an extent that the audience starts getting jitters at the very thought of them getting together??  Well certainly we don't have an answer, but this could be the finest example of Sangam, whiat initially had the promise of Saagar-Ganga love story, but failed to hold audiences' interest! Sagar getting married to Kaveri was the worst scenario, and to add up more, Kaveri's character was replaced not once but twice!! Now with the leap round the corner, we presume that the show will not breathe any further in spite of its last ground-saving strategy!!Kasturi: Will they unite or wont they?? Inspite of the fact that Robbie Kasturi love each other, they are seperated yet again...While there are new enterants in the show, fans are disappointed as they want to see Robbie-Kasturi reuniting. But the story has left the viewers confused and crying for betterment!!
Kasamh Se: Veer the illegitimate child of Jai and Pia comes to know the half truth, that Jai is his biological Father. However he is made to believe a fake story by Jigyasa and he schemes as a result kills Pushkar who brought him up and makes it appear an acciden. However, the twist wherein he wants to unite Pia and Jai is unbelievable!! Once again relationships are found brutally murdered..However its said "Serial Ki Duniya main har gunah maaf", so the family has forgiven Veer's nadani..

Please note: There are lot of shows and to give fair chance to all, we try to cover all the shows on rotation basis! The views expressed in this article are solely by the author.
