Chakku, I agree with you, may be 80%, but yes I do. People often take advantage of the twists to bash this show. The comparison between Indian shows and Western shows itself is foolish. Because Western shows are based on concrete story and preplanned concept. But Indian shows and Indian producers never prioritize story or concept and run the shows only on fan-demand or on random experiments. Because unlike Western Producers, Indians are more interested in quantity rather than quality. In our shows, glamour and cliche romance are given more priority than plot. Makers just look forward to completing 1000 episodes or so and running the show for years, even if 90% of it is filled with crap. Ironically this trend was started by Ektaa herself.
As for Siddharth and Abhay-Piya, I feel Abhay and Piya are the pivot of the show but, as of now, Siddharth is the torque which gives the driving force to the story to revolve around that pivot. Without this driving force, the show will be stagnant. Before, Siddharth's arrival, it was all about Piya finding out Abhay's secret and that's why Siddharth's absence did not matter. But now things have changed. I am not saying that Siddhant Karnick should not leave or that we must compel him to stay (as Abanti suggested and I even opposed her idea). But they could have proceeded with Siddharth's character with a new suitable actor. I, for one, would have welcomed that. But completely killing off the character all of a sudden might prove to be a setback for the show.
I saw few comments saying that now the 'villains' are gone, they'll get Abhay-Piya all the time and it will be a treat. Well are you sure? But what do you want to see? Piya skeptical about Abhay, falling in love, finding out the truth, hating, loving, making up, breaking up, the umpteen 'near kiss' scenes, eyelocks, Piya falling and Abhay grabbing her...Won't you all get bored by watching these predictable scenes every day? Believe me I have seen many Star One shows and in most of them, after a few months, the makers run out of story and then they drag the show with these crap and immature 'romance'. And remember, this is Ektaa we are speaking about. She's a master in dragging shows for decades with absurd twists and turns. I believe she has already started showing signs of her 'creativity' with this memory loss and time leap thingy. So watch out!!
On the whole, I can't say that the show will go to drains with Siddhant's exit, but yes, if they plan to take it back to those college romance days, the show is over for me. They need to try new and sensible concept and bring a character as charismatic and as influential as Siddharth. If that doesn't happen and they rely upon Abhay-Piya's 'Dark love' and stereotype romance, then only the die hard fans of the couple will stick to the show and drool over 'passionate romance' and 'sizzling chemistry'. But the general audience, who look up to the show for a nice story will feel bored, even irritated and pissed, and will stop watching it.
very well said
red-i wish this system should be in our television industry.then sid wud have not left the show in middle only
