I saw Dhoop Kinare years ago. And I am very glad it is being done again. Ashutosh, Nidhi,s father Anjasi,s parents, Ashutosh's Baba and his trusted Kaka are wonderful choices. But the female cast leaves much to be desired. Dadibua's characterisation is shabby, Both Nidhi and Anjai look plump and nearer 28 rather than 22 in age. Mallika should be much more alluring in her ways. Actually the lady lawyer's persona suits the role of Mallika. The clothes that all four wear don't suit them. The connectivity of this serial is dependent on dialogue. If your background music is going to make such a din the dialogues cannot be heard. The background music --if you continue like this people will get fed up with the din its making and lose interest. Come on all concerned no offense made ---I am sure India can do much better.
A random observation---Is the female cast underplayed on all counts so that Nidhi does not get overshadowed--Obviously Moshin Bhel can stand his ground---Rangnathan should take a leaf out of Sumeet Raghvan's book ( Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai---Sahil--) Even then I must admit Rangnathan is good. I used to watch Kasturi and the chemistry between Shubangi Attre ie Kasturi and Moshin Bhel was very apparent even though the story had taken a bizare twist at that point.
I agree with you on some points and disagree with you on others. I like the female cast and I especially love Nidhi and Anji's chemistry
Dadi bua is great too and I think she acts well, except that she looks a tad too young to be Nidhi dadi bua, bua would have been good enough. Initially, I found Mallika a little artificial, but now I think she's doing a great job
I agree with you on the BG music being a little too loud though. Sometimes one cannot hear the dialouges, especially when Ashatosh is talking.
I don't like Nidhi's costume either. Kurta and leggings is great for a young women, but I somehow don't like the designs much.
And as I read in another article, the Saiyan is used too often and must be cut down.
I like Ranganath too
Monish Bhel is given a lot of importance, but the same amount of importance is not given to Kritika. The other females are given equal, if not more, screen space. Maybe because they too are seasoned actors with experience in the film industry. So no, I don't think the other females are being underplayed. On this note, I feel Kritika's doing a fab job and I like her as Dr. Nidhi
