I'm sending this open letter without any expectations, because to have expectations would be sillier than Duttta lying in bed for days in sedated stupor.
I write it because one, I wish you luck in turning the story around, and two, to ask "what the hell was going on in your collective heads?" Really. Please, do explain.
Countries have wondered. Societies. Businesses. How can something so good, so strong go so wrong? And so fast? I mean societies have had less spectacular falls than LTL.
Your biggest mistake, which you continue to make to this day, shockingly enough, is you misunderstood the story you created. I don't think CVs misunderstood the story, wide majority is happy with the way things are going.
LTL was NEVER only about a love story. It evolved and became about personal exploration, redemption, making peace with pain and those who bring it about, understanding the past...and intrigue, suspense, and a Don's world. The title suggests " Laagi Tujse Lagan" and clearly signifies Love story Parul.. Its primarily a Love story and everything revolves around this thing.
LTL was NEVER only about Naku and her truth--that is just plain boring. The constant delaying of the face reveal, capped off with that do-it-yourself soot in the middle of the jungle, made me wonder if you thought we were stupid or whether you were stupid. Parul story started off as a curious tale of a housemaid whose own face is the reason of her troubles. I don't think it was stupid. They delayed FR for some genuine reason. They justified the initial teaser of the show (where man marries ugly Nakusha) Though when Dutta got introduced in the show, things changed altogether and it equally became Dutta's story.
We fans were not watching for THAT MOMENT alone--SR. I honestly think you thought that was your "secret weapon". Keep pushing it off--the fans will surely follow. Well I never liked teases, and it seems neither did most viewers. For me, "Tasha" has become synonymous with utter and hopeless boredom and annoyance. Whenever I hear "Saab" or see Naku go gooey-eyed, or call out to Bappa, I so want Bappa to come down and say "take your business elsewhere. My calendar is full." I guess CVs tried their best to deviate a little from Tasha, but they serious failed to do so. Do you know WHY? Because wide majority craves for Tasha..infact I can't find anyone objecting to Tasha and their love story. We all signed petition for that "BRING THE LEAD PAIR BACK" I so much love NAKUSHA for saying ' saab', its so much love and respect she has for him that make her say so. I love her faith in Bappa, as I seriously don't mind blind faith in GOD. We all are eagerly waiting to see Tasha's reunion, that is just not about SR alone.
Best of luck to you.
