I wish Ekta would take someone from this forum as a consultant, or take a leaf out of SRK's book. Open a hotline or SMS service for people wanting to tell her whats the best way to handle her serials. Sometimes her attempts to bring in elements from the real world are so ridiculous that one feels insulted watching such fare.

I agree with you!! Thumbs Up 

How I wish Sony had promoted Kismat with such pomp and hype! Stern SmileIt would be unfair to compare but Kismat started itself on a high note which is not in this case. The thing here is I wish the person who wrote such subtle promo concepts for BALH would have done a better job if he had written the show. LOL

I'm still hoping to see Ekta keep this show different from her other shows by dealing mainly on their post-marriage scenes and spare us with torture your leads with vamps concept. Smile

Just finished watching Episode 3 of BLAH BLAH BLAH.

So Ekta find time for some more cliches.  The loud, garrulous, gold-digger bimbo, the over the top shrieking shrew of a wife, and the stiff as a cardboard beau. Oh yes, we've been through it all.

So while first episode had a family straight out of Dhadkan, the second had an overkill of bad, overworked VO artists filling in for stiff actors who are to understand what dialog delivery is all about. Lo and behold we have the third episode now - heading for a scene out of DTPH and like DTPH, we will have to wait till interval for the hero and heroine to actually meet. So for the next two months we are going to be inundated with scenes where the two nearly meet.

Now why is it that Ram's friend would've taken him to a restaurant where the waiter reels off the dishes like an Irani Cafe, instead of presenting the menu. And isn't this guy concerned about Ram, so why take him to place that has such delicacies as Cheese Pakoda and Bread Pakoda, as the Day's Special. Or is that how Ram gets his girth.

I would've been insulted if my date was looking at someone else while sitting with me. And at the very least I would've had at least 3 clumsy moments - first when I spill the water on his shirt, the second when I upset the soup bowl in his lap and the third when I ensure that the tablecloth gets snagged while he pays the bill. (Is that why I'm happily single @ 40? Could be, who cares, am too busy enjoying life, and no I wasn't paying for my sister's education or looking for sympathy from random strangers.)

I am giving BT till Monday to get their act together. I anyways have to watch BLAH till tomorrow, coz Kismat airs right after, and can't afford to miss a single episode of that one. Monday is when I watch BLAH for its own sake, else will just follow it here.

@ Shreya

Sony has always been unfair to YRF serials. Khottey Sikkey and Kismat were both good shows that did not get their due either in promotions or time-slots.

@Red: How can we ever ever ever forget that!Ouch

I remember Ekta in her interviews saying she loves to watch american shows, well why does she like watching them?  If they are well made because the script is written in a way it makes sense, the actors are capable and it does not think the viewers out there are dumb then should she not consider that she should be trendsetter where she respects the audience out there, be it the metro crowd or the rural masses and give them shows that reflects that.

What can I call you? Smile I cried today at the end of Kismat Cry  Gosh, will miss shows like Kismat and Khottey Sikhay.  Kismat even doesnt have a repeat which is such a sad thing. Ouch 

 I hope we get to see more of YRF shows. Like you said, they are fresh and can give a whole new meaning to Indian television. Smile

I kinda liked today's BALH episode. Much better than the last 2 epis. Big smile
