Thanks for the post.
I was really excited when I heard about the Show and was looking forward to it. In fact, I have been waiting patiently all the while. So when the promos started, I was ecstatic.
Forgive me friends, I know Ram is a great actor, but I wish he was a bit leaner. I know this issue has been beaten to death over here, and I don't want to relight the fire - it's just my personal opinion. Over 40, doesn't mean one has to be literally over the hills - am talking about the character here. Many of us had seen Mohnish Behl in KGGK and he was so dashing. Not comparing absolutely. But I am sure Ram will make up for it with his expressions and acting.
Well, I really liked Sakshi - only I wanted her to be a more stronger character. Maybe that will be revealed as the story progresses. Agreed there is a sense of loneliness in such a situation, but she doesn't need to be feel like a doormat or be a Ms. Goody Two Shoes. In fact, I liked her interactions with her Father. That relation is growing on me. Actually.
Guess for an Ekta show, I was expecting too much. I agree with viewobs. Since this is a special show, the treatment should have been different and Balaji should have stayed away from the obvious - in terms of similar background score, garishly made up Moms, plastic expressions on some faces and the oh-so-angelic leads. A bit of spice is definitely needed.
And the bloopers - My God! Will someone please look into them and ensure that they are not there?
