Dear Friends,

I am new to this forum, but certainly not to India-forums.

A few days back I found myself hooked to this show for a lot of reasons. I really don't know what attracted me in the first place because my reaction on watching an episode around a month back was - "who watches this show ?"

And guess what, I wsa doing exactly the same after just a few episodes.

I resisted hard even coming to this forum, as I have a history of getting hooked to a forum before.

But Today I Had to !!!!

I am mesmerised by the Rajasthani backdrop. I happen to hail originally from Jaipur and Ajmer, which is at half and hour distance from Pushkar. I have been to Pushkar numerous times and I am in awe of the place and the premise in the show.

I saw the episode last night and was deeply moved.
Suraj is, on one hand, trying to read what is written about her wife with her photograph in an English newspaper. And he even regrets not completing his education. Sandhya, on the the other hand, has managed to secure such high marks but cannot rejoice in the glory. She cannot even share this with her husband.

People congratulate Suraj for his extra-ordinarily meritorious wife and he is zapped. He doesn't know whether he should feel happy and proud or feel sad as he knows his family's views about an educated DIL.
The Lead has emoted extremely well and I really felt for the character and his state of mind.

He is confused, shattered, worried and amidst all this...he doesn't know which side to take. He understands Sandhya as much as he does his family and almost knows about what the response would be.

Amazing !!! Written, presented, acted, characterised really well.
All in all...an awesome show.

( And the pleasant surprise was Jaya...JustJ...that I have had the privilege to know ... ...Wow, another reason for staying hereBig smile )

Thanks for welcoming Jaya.

No, don't get surprised...I was on my previous show, mainly due to good storyline initially and then ...out of habitROFL

You know, Buri aadat aasani se nahi choot-ti haiLOLLOL

Lack of time also didn't give me space to explore other shows, so I kept stciking to one.

I first saw DABH around Diwali...and didn't watch more than one episode. Then once a week, I would just happen to watch an episode and though I loved the simplicity and staright forward approach, I used to think that it must be some regressive saas-bahu show. ( prejudices, you know...)

But around a month back, I saw a few more episodes and next was that I was telling my folks, "don't change the channel,,,,,,,,,,I watch this show."

Voila...I am just loving it every passing day and it has a grip and gravity that is the mark of good story telling.

I somehow know that it won't disappoint.Smile

Welcome to DABH forum..
For me it was a show summary at 11.30pm which led to total addiction..I had to know what happens next.

Then ended up watching the title track which got me completely hooked.

I think you can safely get addicted to the forum.It is pretty much non crazy YET.

The show and how the relationship is progressing is very well executed..To this date there hasnt been an instance where the progression has been halted making the viewers wait...

My lecture is over...Again welcome to DABH.




@ Gold - Thank you so much for welcoming !!

I agree...am loving how the relationship is progressing in a subtle and non - OTT way...
the correct flavour in a proper mix of ingredients...it's delicious and definitely addicting, as of now !!

Welcome Manita, I'm not surprised at your getting hooked to the show.
I too got hooked despite not wanting to add another show to the already many ones I watch, but it was too difficult to stop watching LOL
 
The forum is a nice place with sensible people; no gushing over how lovely the lead couple looks or bashing if someone writes something less complimentary about the show.
