My problem with the CVs response was not so much characterisation of RASAM...honestly no...but the statement on shanak was a SLAP on our face...the statement said..shanak will be shown in purity....WHAT does that even mean???? and eye opener??? LOL...for us surely...

See end of the day, what are we cribbing about really? 

How can a team that gave us such a well crafted story not be able to pull it together - when they moved seamlessly from dhulwaadi to bombay to khanak leaving house-paathshaala-relaisation of love..what happened after that??? 

To me it started with a Public Relations disaster....you have decided to have a 6 day format...you need to have more actors in the series to make 6 day work...I get that!!! but you go and announce that suddenly nine months after building a story you will bring in a SECOND LEAD....that was the beginning of the end...not only that this lead is coming with a whole new deviated track....

And just when you started getting it together by announcing that you have abandoned the track, your lead falls ill and you stoop to a non story and caricaturisation format...

IN midst of all this your whole background technical team has changed.....

IMHO, our expectations from this new RBO must be nil...we need to start watching this RBO with a whole new mindset...we ahve to forget their background stories...this is a new serial....

and how did they expect this will work????

I will tell you how...because unlike some of us at CCorner, there are hoardes of us who will watch for SHANAK...no matter what..even today we start and end our conversations here with "no comments until Shaan comes back"....How many of us are ready to quit becos of lack of story and deteriorated quality in execution....very few,....

so until viewers demand more...the state of Indian TV will not change....I for one shall use this corner to demand better writing because that is what drew me to this serial...hell I praise the writing in another show;s forum all the time...becos right now according to me it does have the best writing in town...



Good points. It was the writing and characterisation that drew me to the show. But I have just realised that there are expectations about viewers too...

Krishna, that comment by Duck as to why Shaan never told him he had a sister, I suppose it is to make us realise that Duck is not the brightest of the gang. Shaan didnt tell him because he doesnt have a sister. Thats why. But poor Duck is not that smart, so he is unable to figure it out and thinks Shaan actually kept it from him that he had a sister. Oh well... see, that part of Duck being so clueless, its missing in the way the Duck-Boo scenes have been conceived. It could have been shown in a very funny manner...but its not coming thru. I only figured that out after your explanation.

Hey Friends!!
 
Sorry for not being able to be as active as I'd have liked to be.....recession still looming large, guys!!WinkLOL
 
My quick take on the past 2 days.....
 
Thumbs up for...
 
Khanak and Shaan's past (read: reference to Suraj).......undoubtedly, making way for the introduction of Sunny's character, but at least it was discussed.....needs to be 'dissected' now!....what a wonderful subplot it can be to make the ShaNak equation stronger.....the insecurities.....the introspection.....the realization.....and finally.....the acceptance!!!
 
Loved Yashu's interpretation of the whole going down memory lane vis-a-vis Suraj/Shaan....especially liked 'aur phir kismat ne paasa palta'!! Truly, a twist of fate really, for this beautiful love story to unfold......
 
Thumbs down for...
 
'Logical' progression of events completely 'illogical'!!!....here is a woman who inspires her husband to get up and surmount the obstacles, despite the 'obstacle' being Rahul....and here is the same woman making 'hara bhara kababs' for the same 'obstacle'!!!! Beats me completely....nothing 'hara' about it and definitely not 'bhara'!!!! LOL
 
Khanak and Sam 'bonding'?????.......seemed totally 'scripted' to me.....two actors who were definitely 'acting' to their respective potentials, but me somehow just went through the motions, without actually feeling for them and their 'eureka' moment! (read: discovering that Rahul's fiancee was no fiancee, after all!!!).....couldnt help going down memory lane yet again during the Khanak-Sam moment outside the elevator in front of K mansion's entrance.....the same premise, yet a different setting.....Gosh!! and so different......the classic "Bell Bajao" scene!!!!ClapClap
 
In conclusion, would like to say....Khanak definitely brings out the best in her co-stars.....her scenes with Duck, Rahul are a clear indicator of that.....but with Shaan, its something else altogether....difficult to zero it down to one thing really......the talented people on our forum have penned beautiful poems, written wonderful FFs, OSs, not to forget the superbly innovative Shanakisms as an ode to the ShaNak magic.....but for me the simplest testament to the same is that without one, the other is truly, truly incomplete....Shaan and Khanak dont just complete each other because of the ways their characters have been etched, but 'cos with each other, KT and Yashu reinforce the fact that one truly requires quality to let quality shine!!!
 
Welcome back Shaan....not just Khanak, we were missing u badly too......

Doc D, I guess we shld welcome u back here:) Too busy, eh?

Oh... btw, I think u meant the Khanak-Shaan scene in front of the elevator, the'bell bajao' thing.... not Khanak-Sam!

U said it beautifully abt ShaNak.... The two characters are incomplete without each other and credit goes to the makers of the characters, and to the actors.

Thanks, Gaayu for the welcome.....me welcomes myself  back whenever I manage to sneak in the timeWinkLOL.....actually on second thoughts, isn't that what we all do.....despite our respective commitments, definitely manage to make time for RBO!!!! Only wish, that would be gratified a little better than is being currently............
 
As for the elevator bit, me meant Khanak-Sam only, Dearie.....their scene outside the elevator in front of K mansion's main entrance, yesterday......got me thinking about ShaNak's "bell bajao!!" scene.....shot at the same location, but so differently done.....the effect lingers even to this day!!!ClapClapClap

Miss them...OuchCryLOL
 
@Gaayu..yes they could have done it better....the comedy Duck-Boo...bad execution really...Ouch
 
Oh and Dyo yes that whole Khanak scene....at the elevator brought to my mind the same scene Bell Bajoo....LOLLOL What an impression all Shanak scenes have left on us.....sigh..Day Dreaming
 
Annd me too loved the whole scene where we can see her expressions while narrationg her past and present story to Sam...from Suraj to the bright smile while thinking of Shaan..awww.....mae us all go sigh and down memory lane again....sigh....Day Dreaming

@dr.d

d! huggies!Hug and loved your analysis...................like always!LOL



@all

read wooster's post on the TOI article. i will be very honest guys. i am kinda glad that rucha declined. we have already seen the shaan khanak natasha story. it's time to see the shaan khanak and sooraj angle now. if natasha had returned, it would have been once again khanak who'd have to deal with shaan's past. same old story. sunny paves the way for the other way round.


@gaayu

i think sooraj's look alike return is a much bigger dhamaka than if natasha had returned. i mean shanak are married and in love now and natasha herself blessed them, but the sooraj angle has remained an untackled issue till now and i am excited to see how that'll be explored!

@ Zennn
I was thinking more of Natasha-Rahul, than Natasha-Shaan-Khanak angle.. I mean, we don't need another love story in RBO but logistics demand more characters. In which case, why not Natasha-Rahul? Natasha would have been a perfect foil for Rahul and his idea of friendship...

but it dont matter now... Suraj look-alike is also a good one...
