Good post, Shilpita
To me, the biggest blooper of today's episode was the dialogues. The dialogues were completely out of character and cheesy. It felt as if the channel had meddled with the writers, telling them: "We want as many lovely words spilling from Tasha's mouth as possible in this episode. Write anything, but spill words of love. The audience are gonna love it, 'cause they only watch the show for Tasha."
Mishal saved his part, but honestly, I can't believe that the CVs put him in a position where he had to "save" anything. It's ridicilous. I felt like they made a total joke out of D's character today.
Naku's dialogues about "main aapko sambhalu" (I mean, come on, he's Dutta Bhau, he needs her to be with him, not carry him - again they focus on Naku as the strong one in the relationship whereas they should've shown their strength combined - she'll support him, but he'll still lead) and then she said "when I return to PN, I want to bring with me a man who is only filled with love"... I mean, seriously? Naku has always admired her Saab. She loves him as he is, so why would she want to change him now? Bring back a changed man, my foot.
I've never watched an episode of LTL where the dialogues were this ridicilous. Hats off to Mishal for saving every one of them. Dutta's character was made weak today, out of it completely. His confession to Naku... no matter how long it's been since he's been with her, no matter what, he's still Dutta. He would tell her that he loves her and he's sorry, but that's it. But the purple prose they made his dialogues out of... gosh, it was... not Dutta. And it was not Naku.
If they didn't have anything to fill this episode with, then they could've just had Tasha being silent for most of it - just like during the first jungle track when words weren't needed. They could've held hands and supported each other like that. But spilling one cheesy love-line after another just isn't them. They speak through touch, through action, through silence when it comes to their love. They don't need cheesy lines that every other couple has uttered a million times in other shows.
Finally, the scene where she said she'd be back in two minutes? Yeah, right. The Dutta we know would've insisted on going with because he's lost her once and he wasn't about to take any chances with enemies trying to find them... but nooo, the CVs place him on the ground to wait like a good boy...
In short, biggest bloopers can be found in this episode. I wouldn't even call it mistakes from the director/CVs side, I would call it carelessness. It's like they're just about putting the episodes together, make it look good, and out to the audiences.
