Her wide eyed looks and same kind of expressions are killing the essence of the lead pairs scenes..Mahi has delivered some really good scene before but since February i find that same spark missing in her portrayal. the finishing off of chaskar seemed very hurried to me and i wanted that character to stay on as the actor was very good....madhu's character had been botched up too badly..soni is a very good actress and its sad that her caliber is not being used properly.
I feel as if - recently - LTL has been moving either way too slow or way too fast. There doesn't seem to be a balance in terms of speed. It's from one extreme to another. Like Shilpita, I was quite disappointed with how quickly they ended Chaskar. I mean, he was not only a great actor, he was also an important villain and they should've given him a more memorable end. Anna got a fantastic end. Chaskar deserved the same. The much awaited confrontation between Dutta and Chaskar could've easily been given two episodes. It was an important confrontation.
The way that Madhu's character has been treated just continues to astound me. I just cannot fathom that the CVs neglected her to the point of even having Dutta mentioning his blood-related sister just once.
Naku's character is imbalanced. She sways from being boring/passive to boring/active and it's disappointing. Naku has always been strong in mind and spirit. She's endured a lot for Dutta and that strength should remain even when she's not physically searching for a flower and such. But even during the scene where she was caught by the BGs, I was missing force behind her dialogues. They were just said and there wasn't much of an expression on her face or in her voice. In fact, her eyes were squinted because of the sunlight and I fail to understand why the director/team doesn't make sure that the scenes are shot in part shadow or that something shields the actors from the sunlight in their eyes when they're performing in a scene?
Usually, a crew has equipment for such situations. But I've noticed how during this JMM track, the actors have been squinting way too much while performing.
Regardless, my biggest concern is the Dutta-Kala confrontation. It's the most important confrontation between Dutta and his villain - EVER. And the way that LTL has been speeding through important moments and events, I'm just concerned that the brother-sister confrontation won't be given the amount of time and effort (director-CVs-and dialogoue wise) as it deserves. I know that, in the end, the actors will be saving each and every scene, but it'd be nice to know that the confrontation will be given its deserved time from the writers/crew's side.
Hoping. Just hoping.
