.....as I see it its been a month, where r u????
Great to be writing to you all after a self imposed exile cum hiatus:)
Before I proceed, I salute to thee for I do not share the enthusiasm with which you still evince and sustain interest, bordering on divine adoration for the show despite the very flawed script.
The title of this post is..." A wake up call...' and since CV chose to stay in doldrums I could only sneak off from IF. pretty much of what I had envisaged as the future of the show came true.
Unfortunately for me, I am hard to please. There are people like us too in the audience base. So no hard feelings there!! One just needs to keep pace to have us swear by you. GHSP is not the only show that runs 6 days a week. And PH is very aware of that and also remain informed of the gravity of the situation. If they choose to take the easy route and say this is the best we can dish up for a 22 minute episode 6 times each week then I am sorry you just killed my ravenous appetite for your show.
Star one is a youth channel and the shows are designed with a purpose and for a niche audience. Its not Star parivaar saas bahu affair and the distinction was glaringly defined from the beginning. Why CV would resort to mindless scripting is beyond me. Some times keeping it short is really keeping and leaving it sweet. wrapping up the show on its 1st anniversary would be a better idea to bow out gracefully than to make a mess of it all and leave a bitter aftertaste for an otherwise unforgettable show.
Even Ms Nikunj manages to learn the ropes of acting and emote slightly better than a cutting board , sadly the same cannot be said of the storyline for the script went to the shredders.
Consider this... We have millions of atheletes yet only about 12-16 qualify for lets says Olympics or World championships. The dozen odd best sprinters make a dash for the 100 mts and yet the last 5 mtrs is decisive of who the winner is. Its not the say the other 11 are any less deserving but the world will only remember the one who won. Reason..."Sustainance".
And only winning WC or Olympics doesnt make the runner world number. They ought to be running better and better day in and day out to hold on to it.
Thats way to much funda-ism for today. I dint mean to preach.
If I were wrong I wouldnt see as many threads on IF which i fllow dilligently, more than the show itself. I did not wish to contribute to the prevailing negative mode at the forum concerning the show, the character assasinations and ripping apart of well etched roles... the worst of the pack... Geet's characterisation is going downhill and so is Maan's.. I had zilch expectation out of any one else really... so its deeply disappointing.
I found better use of my time instead. So infact its a thank you to the CV. Not a GHSP addict anymore.
I am a greedy fan and selfish too.. I dont want the occasional 'take-my-breath-away ' Maan-Geet moments. I demand more. I think we deserve more of it and better of it.
I randomly pick 10 reviews of each episode and take an average opinion into count and decide in favor of watching the episode online. What i never miss though are Sanjh's take on them. They are hilarious beyond belief.
Purely my PoV. Hopefully I havent hurt any of the loyalist sentiments at this forum. My apologies if I have.
Good day all!!!
