But WTH! i was majorly disappointed with this girl KK...she is terribly miscasted!!!...her acting is average, her accent terrible and her voice modulation needs a lot of work...plus she is just too conscious of her looks to be anywhere remotely close to marina Khan in the original dhoop kinare!!!! her contant flicking of hair, etc is just so irritating.,...she comes up extremely wanting in those scenes that have been directly copied from dhoop kinare...BAD CASTING!!! The 2 fathers and bua seemed to be casted very close to the original DK ..Mohinish behl is fine...but Anji-again a disappointment!
Directors Cut , u better do something abt ur female lead else she is going to bring down the entire show...!!!
I havent seen the epi bt i wud say tht yes Kritz modulation wasnt up to the mark in promotion videos.. and yes she is look conscious..
.. bt she is a gud actress.. esp in role of bubbly girl and emotes quite naturally unless she tries to overact..
.. in fact she is one of few leading young ladies who can actually act well and have promising future...and she is a very quick learner..I have to give it to her..
.. she takes criticisim very positively...
... I know bcoz I m both severe critic and grt fan of Kritz.. and have panned her grossly for her poor performances and praised heavenly for the good ones.. and had communicated the same to her personally...so i would not rule her out of this role so easily..
DK and KTLK r both from totally different era.. in fact wen i saw DK.. i was disappointed with Zoya.. but very impressed with Dr. Ansari.. bt i gather the direction, the camera angles, and the acting was so theoritcal and looked very crafted those days.. (even re-watching my fav shows.. Farmaan.. Tehkikaat gave me same feeling
)... bt the characters and plots were well written.. bt todays is different generation.. and tht kinda treatment wud seem pretty slow.. so the treatment has to be different.. if its same thn KTLK wont work with today's generation.. ironically..
bt i would reserve my final opinion for KTLK and Kritz till i watch the epi..
i am willing to give her more time but frankly, this is not a teeny bopper role she is essaying...this role goes from being a bubbly, immature girl to a woman who comes into her own...marina khan did that fabulously coz she wasnt at all hesitant of making her fool of herself on TV...Kritika comes across as a barbie doll...she needs to improve and quickly..and that punjabi accent of her needs to go-fast!! her voice is flat!!
i disagree with u that DK today will not work..if replicated with the support of the production values available today, it will be historic!! provided the casting is correct...imagine, what they created at that time purely on the basis of strong writing, great direction and good acting! plus the language-UNFORGETTABLE!!!
