Was real happy when Ram mention he was doing something new and different in this show.
Watching the first episode of Bade Achhe Lagte Hai last night, one couldn't help but think they
were watching Jai Walia in a repackage version of Kasamh Se with unrecognizable faces.
Too bad Ekta couldn't create something more comprehensive than this show for two talented
people.

Koi bhi nahinCoolLOL...We truly were...ARE one of a kind fangirlsLOL...It is very rarely do I consider calling myself fangirly over something...and PM are deffo on top of that listLOL...they gave us plenty of material/reason to :-)

@Anu: Point on establishing the characters in the first episode itself. Contrast on LTL where layers of every character got peeled off bit by bit. No wonder EK soon runs out of a story to show and resorts to her usual gimmicks.



Exactly, Ksh...I was watching vintage last night and was once again moved by the sheer DETAILING LTL provided to its characters/scenes in every manner...just a brief scene at Morey's police station also...to simultaneously show Morey's lechiness, Babi's growing fear/frustration/helplessness as she curls her fist on the table as she watches how Morey is looking at Nakku, Nakku's discomfort, Ganpat rambling on about the mutton dishes...all of this show simultaneously and in such AMAZING detail that you FEEL each character...Can Ekta find it in herself to show NUANCES to her characters and stories and not just follow her standard formula book for once? Presentation MATTERS, Ekta ji...cuz stories are all the same...it's HOW you tell them, HOW you present them that REALLY matters...you should make us WANT to know more about the characters, what makes them tick...how they think, what they feel...and that will only draw us in if it's done GRADUALLY and with DETAILING.

I agree that Ram deffo has a Jai Walia repackaged vibe...although Jai was more of a brooding types I guess...but funnily enough they even used the Kasamh Se wala Walia mansion ka set to show the first Ram scene...when he's in "Singapore" for that meetingLOL...I was really amused to recognize that...KS hangoverLOL

I agree with you that Ekta deffo could have created something FAR more great for two such talented actors...more detailing to their characters.

@psawyer and nureat01 AMAZING analysis guys...I agree with everything

my take on the episode- yeah it was filled with bloopers and 100 year old background music..but I loved it none the less. I've been watching Ekta shows since I was a baby so I knew what I was expectin,g so I had no expectations from the technical aspect. I was only waiting for Sakshi and Ram. Sakshi was refreshing and Ram was amazing (esp in the cutlery scene). The guy who plays Vikram(remember him from BB, Glad he's playing a mature character here) loved him too.

I loved how they didnt exaggerate Priya's entry, it was so simple and sweet, in fact I think Ayesha got that cliched entry. I loved how they showed the similar loneliness of Ram and Priya. It was quite random how Vikram just randomly started to think of how someone is made for Ram, but I did think the dialogue was thought worthy.

As for the Keats and love bhashan...I KNEW that something like that was coming, so I didnt think much of it lol. Also I knew since Ram is portrayed as a business man, some illogical business scheme will also be part of the episode.

Actually now that you guys point it out I do see the Pride and Prejudice connection with the mom and Priya. Ram's step mom looked like his wife's ageConfused and I'm betting that in real life she is younger than Ram anyways, that was a bit creepy seeing that but hey its Kekta's show right, I've seen worse stuff


overall I loved the simplicity of the show. Especially Ram and Priya's characters, I loved how they were not complete carbon copies of Parvati and Jai Walia. I also think Ekta herself knows that she show is riding on Ram-Sakshi and thank God that they can ACT, so they carry the story forward. I do hope Sony curse doesnt hit this showOuch



PS- Doris Day is writing the show???! I LOVE herEmbarrassed...she's the genuius behind Tere Liye (before Vikas Gupta and Sandeep what's-his-name stepped inAngryDead)

Doris Dey is a veteran K-soap writer...Tere Liye and all came much later...she's written for the original classic 3 which were frankly much better shows...these days her K-shows don't live up to the originals.

Wasn't Doris fired (or she left at some point of her own accord) during the KZK era? I remember because the writing distinctly went down immediately, earning the show the title KrapZK LOL LOL 

Good to know she's back. She has in the past done some good work.
