Thanks you so much Sukhi for all your wonderful updates! I just finished watching the first two episodes and have to watch the third.
So far I am loving it - everything is very realistic. I am Gujarati and can see that almost everything is very, very authentic.
I agree with what Soapie has written that the producers seem to have done quite a bit of research for this serial. The clothes, the jewellery (especially the kadas and baajubandh) that the lead wears, the big red bindi in the center of her forehead - everything is bang on. Also, in the firs episode, instead of showing a garba at the mela they show another authentic folk dance that village folk in Gujarat do - the tippani.
The amount of money that nanaji owes is also realistic - Rs.32,000/- and some some crores as would be in a typical serial.
And finally RR is just fantastic as DM - his demeaner as an egoistic man terrorizing just about anyway who dares to cross him. Brilliant!
I am one of the few who have not see any other serial of Ronit Roy. I used to watch Kasam Se but had lost interest in that serial about the time he came on board as AD so really did not pay much attention.
Hope Ekta and Balaji are able to maintain the simplicity and depth that they have started the serial out with.
Thanks for liking the update Soap-critic .. lol can I call you by any other nickname? This ones' too big .. lol
The realistic quotient is very high indeed .. especially the detailing is very good - a good example being nanaji refusing to take the money from the jewelers' left hand .. telling him to give lakshmi
only by his right hand ..
That was a great watch absolutely .. Bandini is surely heading for a emotional crescendo .. awesome stuff !!
Do tell me how you liked the 3rd episode as well !

Thanks for a lovely update once again!
The episode was fantastic, both in terms of emotional and dramatic content as well as in the performance department!
Nanaji rocks big time! This actor is really good and the best part
is that he looks absolutely like a remote Gujrathi villager! The whole
incident with the girls and the cow was thankfully not melodramatic but
actually quite moving! Well shot scene and all the actors did a decent
RR / DR was amazing once again! Three days in a row, one great
performance after another! Kudos to both the actor and the character.
The whole Canteen scene was just fantastic and loved the aura of
absolute tyranny and power that DR exudes, in such an aloof, detached
Btw, I love the twirling of his moustaches, it is such a typical
village thing you know...can see that the producers have researched
quite a bit before shooting for Bandini!
Also, still having a tough time to believe that it is a Balaji
Telefilms Production, considering that everything has been kept so
subtle and low-key yet able to make a visible impact! Great job and
hope they keep it up.
Now waiting for DR to find out about Jagmohan's kartoot and see the fury burn him down to ashes!
Wondering why they haven't shown DR's family till now?
I always wait for your comments/analysis on the episode gone by .. heheheh .. always brings a smile to my face becase you put through all the things I am feeling - always !
I luuuurved him twirling his moustaches as well .. it's like he's processing somethingi in his mind and this happens as a Pavlovian response.. loved the way he made Jagmohan pay for the lost time of the employees and firmly put the message across that - Dharampuar ma EKACH leader che !
Oh MY GOD Ekta!!
You rock or what?!
Ronit is continuing his golden run .. getting better every day!
Cant wait for tonight ..
