Oooooh interesting couple! But an Ekta show...given her current record, I'm not that hopeful.


Her current record isn't that bad if I look at PR
LOL......and hey atleast SOMEONE is trying to come up with a mature concept apart from the usual wooden-faced newbies ki "love stories"......hope this show works out....only thing that sucks is that Sony will shortchange it when it comes to PR and marketing as usual.


LOL...her current record is still that bad if I look at PR...lol..not that I've followed it after the couple of initial months but isn't it full of Ekta cliches?

Well, Ekta always thought of good concepts, her shows start out well too but then after a point she convolutes them  and turns them into a farce

LOL.....I guess I can't really explain it....the show does have the usual Ekta cliches or rather I should say soapland cliches cuz EVERY soap has those basic cliches.....but in some senses, the show stands apart cuz of how she's managed to maintain that middle/lower class tone to the characters by making Manav-Archana almost eternally poor....lol....and not to forget mahaan....haha.....the show has a pretty strong supporting cast of characters and the way Varsha, Satish, Ajit etc's stories have been developed is something I've liked....yeah it stagnates from time to time and gets unbearable too....but I've seen a lot of Kekta shows....and I can safely say that PR is different in a sense....there is a relative simplicity and sincerity to the characters.

Yes but her actors can act LOL and most of the other shows simply start off being a farce and go downhill from there LOL

@Anu - yeah, RR is busy with Adalat, but he was doing Bandini till recently as well, and anyway he gives 30 days a month to his shows, esp. if Ekta is involved. He's said before that he doesn't understand how people can take such a great opportunity and then throw it away with unprofessionalism, laziness and sheer stupidity. I really admire his work ethic. Sigh....but this is all just my fantasy anyway LOL but I'm just super excited to see Sakshi back on TV, and she works really well with Ekta, so we'll see. I don't mind a convoluted and pathetic story as long as there are good actors to sustain me. Dude, I watched KZK for yeeeeeeeears for PM and PRBLOL


No, haven't see Udaan....dude, I haven't seen much of anything recently....sigh....

I remember I used to love Nimmo- it was a good comedy - Kantaben, Kunal, KK and Nimmo were a riot together , the show had a light hearted romantic  feel to it laced with bittersweet moments but then Ekta's pyschotic alter took over and she turned the show into something else -sigh!

@Vasu: You really should watch Udaan....it's got your RR in it too....so maybe that will motivate you enough :P lol



@Kavya: Nimmo was only good in the initial two months despite the fact that Sanjeeda was quite raw back then and overacting a lot....but Kaantaben's character was fun, true.....that show got WAY stupid quite quickly....then Kekta recopied that concept with the Kuch Is tarah show....LOL.....

Kekta does try different concepts from time to time apart from her usual saas-bahu family dramas but they all end up descending into convoluted saas-bahu crap sooner or later.

I loved Nimmo too! 

Kantaben: "Pizza Hut ka opposite kya hai? Pizza Hutna Mat!" ROFLROFLROFL Oh, and I remember her calling one of the awful aunties "Shahadpav" = Honeybuns ROFLROFLROFLROFL

But yeah, that story went waaaaaaaaaaaaaay cuckoo Wacko

@Anu - it's not about motivation, yaar, it's about time....LOL motivation ki baat hoti toh I would have watched the 6 other things I wanted to watch last month LOL

Well, relatively (i.e when we compare her shows to the ones that are worse than hers) then she IS definitely better or rather the lesser of the two evils. But if I have to compare her shows to better ones, say shows like SGP (not that it is going great guns now but still it is better than the typical Ekta-ruins-it-again story) or the YRF ones like R.Com (I am not comparing the genre here but the CONTENT that you give in your chosen genre) or for that matter even a show like LTL despite its pace, I have to say that she is not worth having expectations from...
