People are going to laugh. But Punar Vivah
. Seriously. (This is coming from someone who LMAO-ed at the promos--especially the first one. No lie. I LMAO-ed in a bunch of posts on IF.) I watched it because someone told me to. There are some faults in acting, yes. There is some annoyance with the female character's friend and the female character's idiocy--but it's minor... and best part... it's now cleared up.
During the engagement it did drag and go crazy with the whoosh whoosh and reaction shots. But they stopped with that and now it's fine. I really like the show overall and technically the show is pretty damn good.
And if you want some proof, certain fangirls dislike the show and would always make topics against it with complaints.
The other one I haven't watched but someone recommends is Afsar Bitya. I just haven't had the time to watch. Also many people seem to like Na Bolo Tum on Colors.
The reason I laughed at the promo was his stoic face and then that last shot--his deep cut sherwani and his stiff posture with his stoic face.
I had to eat my words. I really wasn't planning on checking it out at all. Rolled my eyes thought they would just make it all ~you know~ even if the topic was remarriage with kids. But that's not the case at all.
And they use music very well too. If you've seen the performance clips in the show, especially Aditi Gupta's.. you'll see how good their production values are. As well as the cast's sangeet's performance. Took Hum Saath Saath Hain's medley and changed the words to fit their characters.
It will pleasantly surprise you.
