It's just that at first, it was considered that Ekta will copy Twilight to the core considering the resemblance in its storyline which was disappointing for me initially. But, then she changed the story a little with Piya's duplicate, Maithli bringing in inspiration from Vampire diaries. So, I was like "Okay, so the show is not entirely a copy of Twilight or Vampire Diaries, just a inspired from the mixture of the two while adding a bit of Ekta's own masala." I just wanted the show, to have its own concept even though taking ideas from other shows but, to be something different in its own way.
But, NO! If there's going to be an entry of the evil brother of Abhay then that sounds too closely related to Vampire Diaries. I just hope Ekta doesn't divert from the love story direction and try to create more drama like the sequences in Vampire Diaries with the evil brother in love with Piya too. I hate triangles and for one I was looking for a proper love story with the feel of Romeo & Juliet or Edward & Bella type of love stories, where's its all about the leads.
I don't mind other characters' entry but, the show's direction seems to be heavily built upon Vampire Diaries as like VD, it consists of Abhay's evil brother, both guys are vampires, Piya the modern girl and Maithli, the look alike of Piya (possibly a vampire too). There are even talks that Ekta might have Piya be the reincarnation of Maithli or bring back the character of Maithli too like in the case of Vampire Diaries. Looks like this show is aheaded for some heavy drama...............I just don't want to feel like I am watching another Vampire Diaries in the making. I mean evil brother..............as if all that drama right now wasn't already enough!
Also, if you look at it...........there's another blopper in the story. I thought in the introduction of Abhay, his father says to him that, "Tum mere ek laute bete ho" (You are my only son!) And if I am not wrong, his mother has said to him on many occasions mentioning something about him being their sole heir and how he needs to control himself?" And now, all of a sudden he has brother!
Payal, you just spoke my mind, i too feel disappointed! why are they adding so much drama now?, cant they have an original story for once that was only inspired from other shows but has its own flavor!
we have enough characters to concentrate on , yet they bring some more! Abhay & Piya dark love story has becoming weaker by the day as they have already diverted to many unnecessary drama at first like Maya track and then many unfunny comic fillers! @ bold that what i was hoping for but no!, they had to bring love triangles and rectangles! why o why i get hooked to any Indian shows, seems i don't learn my lesson! @blue that what i was thinking too! how can they say that then suddenly he has brother out of blue, i think maybe they lost him as a child in Mailla like old movies and now he came back! how lame is that?!
all said and done, its not in our hand as poco said! its all in the hands of creative team who seems cant think beyond twilight and TVD, and that is really sad!
