The storyline doesn't ask for a "hunk"...it asks for an actor who can act...and Kunal is quite natural in this role...he's portraying all the shades to Mohan very well...be it the comic timing or the scenes when he's threatening the corrupt officials or the general carefree/brusque air to Mohan...he's doing it all smoothly.
I doubt Mohan-Megha can have a typical "lowe story"...there's a lot of baggage for that to manage to happen...the characters are being established as such...I would like to see a connection built b/w two individuals...the storyline calls for more than superficial crap that is there in every other flying dupatta/trip-catch story on TV.
I guess optimistic toh main bhi hoon about the show.. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't.. But you know the whole once-bitten-twice-shy routine.. *sigh* Dekhte hain. So far, I'm judging the show on it's content and not by the channel it's on. And as long as the show maintains its class, I'll be a fan.
And as far as Kunal goes, I'd never seen him act before in any show toh when I'd seen the promos I'd had my doubts. But this past week is bandey ne sarey doubts clear kar diye.. Like you said, he has good comic timing and he is good in his serious scenes too.. Aur phir his chemistry with every character/actor so far is commendable. Ab baar baar har character k saath coincidence toh nahi ho sakta.. Clearly this guy is well suited for this role and it shows in his work!
And WORD about wanting to see a connection between Mohan-Megha! Clearly they both have their share of baggage - Megha with her kids and husband aur Mohan with his family issues and Rashmi (whoever she is).. Toh that needs to be taken into account and adjusted accordingly when developing their love story.
