Personally I see ZERO chemistry in the two leads
. Ahem needs to get the girl he wanted - WOW she was gorgeous - Gopi looks like she has rasgolla stuffed in her cheeks, plus she is a dull, and boring girl. Niceness is great but to assume that only an uneducated girl can possess these traits are wrong. Gopi has no personality; she has nothing interesting to offer, to discuss. She has NO hobbies or interests except doing what her mother-in-law commands. And someone, please do something but her look - it is so unflattering - reminds me of how actresses used to look in the 80s.
sorry Laila....i hv t disagree with u on bold lines.....
here we all can die for them and their Chemistry....which is not shown enough coz of Dumb CVs
and the best example was Dandiya Dance Scene....u can watch it esp when Aham removes her pallu.....u can feel the Chemistry.....as Chemistry necessarily needs to be shown by Closeness between A Couple and same is here...GoHam is all about their Stares, Gazes and Looks........and if by any chance CVs had mercy on us they showed Dandiya, Fire, Dupatta, Terrace, Kitchen and many other scenes.............
Gopi's character is shown as A Gal who did not have anything in her life to say her own from the childhood and what can u expect from a gal who was Bossed by her cousin, Bullied by her Aunt.............agree she is from 80s and I cant expect anything else from her as she is like that coz what she got in her life........
No Hobbies...its usual......Rashi-Urmi dint let her live her Life as A Kid......
Lata, we are going to have to agree to disagree here, but stares, gazes and looks don't create chemistry for me. What makes it happen is by creating an interesting character. The actress who plays her is not unattractive (saw her FB pictures), but her make-up and look is done to make her look like a frumpy 12-year old. It doesn't do ANYTHING for her.
It's fine that she is a young kid with no self-esteem etc, but she is not material for Ahem. Exactly what makes them a good match? Plus the girl who played Anita, she is very attractive. So you've got two issues going.
The creatives are doing the typical part where her "niceness" will win him over, but I believe in the following quote by the famous Fran Lebowitz, but "humility is no substitute for a good personality." Meaning, a good personality is more appealing - and often good personalities encompass humility as well. On its own, all you have is a "nice" person, not an interesting one. Gopi Bahu is the "traditional" protoypical bahu of a bygone era that reflects the idea woman of some of these writers. She's safe and good and obedient.
At the same though, I got to admit, her overall character is practically halrious and rather than feel sorry for I actually find her interactions with Kokila pretty funny, and in essence that is supposed to be her character - the not so bright bahu. And I suppose the look really enhances it.
Just a note, Ahem needs to work on his temper and his arrogance. He can't spend his life taking out his anger on Gopi - it was his mother's choice for him to marry her.
