That is a first to be disappointed in a show without watching. No offense, but I found that hilarious.
And no one is saying don't expect more, just don't expect it to be realized.
It is different, which show has a middle age couples love story.
Ekta jee has this uncanning ability to put me off shows entirely. Also, I've seen way too many Ekta shows to know EXACTLY how a scene would go without having to see it. However, if my comments will be looked at with a more analytical approach should I have watched the show, then I'll go ahead and watch them right away. Because clearly, out of everything I said, the only thing that stuck with you is the fact that I hadn't watched the show (the "WHY" I didn't watch it, never did register..?
And I did expect more and I was fairly skeptical about them being realized too - TRUST ME when I say that I KNOW how Ekta jee works. So I knew I shouldn't expect a lot of my hopes to be realized. I'm just saying that just because I know Ekta and just because she has reputation for spewing nonsense doesn't mean that that nonsense should be excused..
I am okay with anyone who enjoys her shows - really, more power to you! But why should the members who don't enjoy her repetitive tracks be dubbed "negative" for their criticism.
It's constructive criticism - we expect more from her because she is old enough in this industry to finally be able to challenge herself. But I guess, then the question really becomes, does she even have to challenge herself if everyone else is absolutely okay lapping up her stale story tracks as long as they get to see their favorite actor/actress/jodi on screen..
Khair.. My apologies. I will definitely watch the show before I dare to make an educated opinion on it. Because as far as Ekta's concerned, her past track record cannot be used to support the criticism against her - it can only be used to justify her present mistakes. @bold:
Middle aged couples need to act like a middle aged MATURE couple. Middle aged people are a bit more experienced and mature and self confident, from what I've seen. Middle aged couple acting like a couple of 20+ years old (being pushed around and neglected without having the gall or the backbone to put their foot down and be more assertive..) does NOT make it different. It just makes it repetitive - what we've seen with young couples, now we see with old couples. That makes it different? To better demonstrate my point, if a 30+ woman is wearing the same dress as a 20+ woman, it does NOT make the dress different..
