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!!!
As Far as kritika is concerned - She's an amazing actress - It'll be completely unfair and biased to rule her out in the first episode...Every actor/actress grows with each performance..Dr.zoya's character is evergreen, but nobody has to portray each and everythign EXACTLY THE SAME WAY...
As far as her accent is oncerned - She's apunjabi, so obviously she'll have that accent..i find it rude to comment on somebody's accent...She's an actress, but that doesnt mean she should change the way she originally speaks...We will need to watch the show from a new perspective and if we continue comparing it with DK - it'll be unfair..the only thing taken from DK is the story and the character sketch - how each actor makes the character their own, is their strength..
The language of DK was good, because it was a Pakistani Urdu show - KTLK is an Indian show, and the language is bound to be more influenced by hindi..not URdu..
So it's very unfair to mark down an actor based on comparison with another seasoned actress who performed that character almsot 10 years ago...Give it some time! Marina Khan is extra-ordinary and made Dr. Nidhi's character as her own..Kritika will give it her own feel and InshAllah will bring to light a new Nidhi - nothing has to be the same...
