And the actor playing that role should have had that cuteness and naivety like how the one playing in DK had struck us in the first episode itself.
The camaraderie that she shares with Nidhi should look more friendly but this one looks like her younger sister.
I was slightly disappointed even with Nidhi's father's characterization. Zoya's father was so hilarious and his one-liners were worth a mention.
Hence we could feel his distress later
... Nidhi's father is caricatured and we have seen such characterization in many shows on TV now.
These were the 2 characters I was so curiously awaiting to see them adapted in Indian version.
Totally and completely with you...
Even if I have to adopt Angie's new characterization, I would have to start fresh, loosen my memories of DK Angie and accept this new character...
But Nidhi's father...Well, it started off well and I thought, he was going to nip the b**t at the right spot...The character seemed as if he had a hold of the scene, he was just starting to be hilarious, he started he roller coaster ride and suddenly by end of the scene, I fell flat...It wasnt an abrupt fall but not a joy ride...His lines need to be reviewed and made more funny...the actor is doing a good job and reflects a lot of the DK but the dislogues need improvement...I am sure things would get better in few episodes..
