But this is really not even close to how good Gulaal was.
Gulaal had suspense everday, everytime I would see an episode I knew the forums would be heating up afterwards with discussions. It was also a tear jerker, crying over it was the norm it was that emotional. The characters had alot of dimension and changes. We all went from hating Dushyant for kiling his own brother to really feeling sorry for him and respecting him. That is good acting! Gulaal was exciting, powerful and moving and Neil Bhatt was amazing, but it was great before he came as well.
Hope this new show steps it up, because so far it seems very one dimensional. I can't believe Star Plus thought that this would do better than Gulaal. We shall see.
Don't try so hard to enjoy the show !!
..Just let go of the inevitable comparison which u r making...see this show as it is without bringing in past shows and judging the current one with the past one...Understand the essential difference , this serial comprises of rookies whereas Gulal was filled with Seasoned actors, who already had a fan base...
As for the contents, Gulal moved u, it left me cold..The only thing I appreciated was the cinematography of it..But there is something about DABH which keeps me interested , mayhaps there is a innocence, a heroine who is viavacious , is not the too goody sacrificing angel who always keeps the family's khushi in mind while scuttling her own desires, happiness [ I never could stand such sort ] ..
I think u r missing the forum more than the Show...pretty soon u will be at home here too
