My count : 7
1)Escalator - UP and down
2)Phone - No idea how it suddenly acted cranky
3) Help desk -
4) Bookstore - #Bangs head
5) Elevaator - Same floor but diff ones #Facepalm
6) Hotel room
7) Daughter Dad pic
I think Iam gonna stop stressing on the essence of the show. This is beyond redemption. We might get some diluted and convoluted reasoning of Raya meant to be together. I would rather focus on 3 things that would remain the essence of Nayi Shuruat.
Aise mat kaho yaar :-( There is some scope for redemption.
Ha ha Santhi!! That's for getting less disappointed and frustrated coz whatever happens, those three would always be consistent.
1) Ram Kapoor - Actor and Character - Droolathon/Expressions unlimited
2) Peehu - Chotu dynamite - Phataka.. cuteness unlimited
3) Sakshi - Queen of expressions - Performance unlimited
The rest - Lesser said the better
The best part of today was simply the PRECAP. Darling is back and his reassurance to Peehu is sooo cute. Love that little convo and the icing on the cake would be a hug between them on Monday. Enough for a Shandar Somvar.
Darling returns. He said it to Neha in season 1 and now to his own daughter. Loved it.
It was a nice touch. And even Washroom was back!
1) Iam not too selfish wrt a complete RaYa licious episode and hence enjoyed the flashback for our own Kadus with a U. Except that our poor little X-tra haddi cannot act to save his life.
2)Kady Kady Kady.. My dear lady.. You are in deep Shit. And thank you for pulling along Priya Sharma too.
3)Priya sharma rocked in those scenes where Peehu gets locked inside. The retort on hearing those nasty words from Rajat was ST bang on again. Would have loved a slap in addition. But well. Another time.
She rocked completely. When Peehu says she will she stop herself from going to bathroom, did u see Priya's reaction. So real, so good.
That was really well done. She rocked those scenes.
4)Ram and Rajat convo - Iam actually enjoying their bromance. Just that one bro is stonefaced but well.. cant have the cake and eat it too. Priya made it to the convo again showing Ram going all the way to keep Priya's ghost happy.
Each time he takes Priya's name, I get happy and also scared for Priya. And you love it. RB act building up.
They have clearly managed to portray RK not having moved on and living with Priya's words cum memories.
5) Peehu was really cute once again. Her expression of glee on hearing the word Chips. Baap pe gayi hai. The reactions of wondering if she spoiled the jacket and being an inquisitive kid who is busy exploring a hotel room were really cute. They really show her as a caring kid in more than one occasion. Even when she is stuck and crying for help, you feel like jumping and opening the door. Looked lovely in her green dress with open hair.
God bless her. But hope CVs are more consistent.
True!! She is talented. hope Cv's dont' go overboard with the Dadi amma there.
6) Haddi falling for Priya is being written all over the episodes these days. Ek toh miyya biwi are out to convert him to get back to love by gifting him BALH book. Dai jaan is also wishing he finds the right girl. Sab bhukto baad me.
You cracked me up. In that last sentence - you sounded like a seasoned dadi ma is mouthing it. Ingenuity.
Ha ha!! Everybody is busy with apne pair pe khuladi marna. Ab audience kya karen?
7)Ayesha the super model is going to attend Tushar bhai's party in Dubai. Kisi ne usko bataya ki nahi? She climbs the escalator and lands up on the other side in Mumbai - make do - Dubai set. It is smelling Satynash since rumors were galore about a family member seeing Priya before RK. Shipra Ayesha lovey dovey scene spelled FAKE all over. LPK is surely sharmas incase u missed Shipraa Dadi giving a long list of items to be bought to Ayesha.
Shipraa Naani :-)
Oh haan!! But does it make a difference. She has dropped off Japan nighties and moved onto Co optex Bedsheets!
8) 2 days no shirt da button and here I was thinking they finally listened. Nope. They said. Sc*ew the song.. Lets promote the movie. Deep breath Angie Deep breath. Listen Ek Maiyaa. Please don't drive that 98% viewers away.
9) Have I been dreaming or has the word 'Abla Nari' been overused for 2 episodes in a row?
Donno how Priya took it so quietly. But given the situation she is in, she does have to draw a line and can't yell at Kady.
For starters, she might want to be a responsible adult and tell KAdy off! Feels like Neha all over again just 25 years younger.
10) A big thumbsup for the wardrobe of RK, ST and Pihu!
So we go around another week of hit and miss, relationships messed up, Nutz,Ayesha and Shipra back to Season1. Doesn't it sound like the rhyme ' Here we go around the mulberry bush?'
Nutz atleast is still sensible. Ayesha and Shipra seem to have worsened.
Dont' even get me started on those two maa beti!
Note to CVs - Important
It's an earnest request. You have successfully butchered Priya Kapoor. Now what's with the treatment to Priya Sharma in Season 2. Priya is a responsible character who has taken care of Ayesha and Karthik for a long period of time. But to show her being unmindful of Kady's studies or actually following her stupid ideas doesnt' show up well. you have shown little regard to Priya talking about Ram on her own except when it is related by Pihu. And to top it, There was Koi tha reply a couple of days back added to a similar response today on seeing the blazer. Don't make it so hard but provide a scene or two to show Priya missing Ram and her parents. Its a massacre for someone who lived her life for her family and now doesnt' even remember them for a second. Pihu is supposed to be her life line. And in a week, you have showed two moments where RK finds her alone and missing her mom. If that's your explanation for an angry Ram later, there are better ways.
Bang on. But Priya of season 2 is in many ways an enigma. She can't take control of situations as she is in an alien land. She has to draw a line with Kady on how far she can go. But I do have my own explanation on her thoughts on Ram. Priya right now lives on her own false premise that Ram moved on. And thats what she wanted. So I think she avoids thinking too much about Ram lest she feels jealous/hurt which is natural but again something she wouldn't want to. A debate between heart and mind. Priya tells Ram to listen to his heart but is listening to her mind so she wouldn't get into negativity. For me this is not an idealistic concept but very real. Nevertheless the love is seen in her face and eyes but the dialogues are not there. The koi tha dialogue to Kady was good in my opinion as she wanted to hide it, but today when she was thinking out loud the words were misplaced. Waiting for the moment.
Santhi.. By Showing Priya moving on based on her false premise, the Cv's aren't doing a favor but deepening the pit. If she believes, Ram has moved on, what about her Dad who was her pillar of strength? Her mom, sister whom she gave an unconditional forgiveness or her brother for whom she fought with RK.. There are no memories or regrets on not being with them. How can 5 years of moving on wash away 33 years of your maternal home? She is a single mother desperate to meet ends, not willing to go back to her husband because he has moved on. Tell me how much of Priya Sharma in season1 do you see in this? Here we see a disarrayed lady who is not even regretting denying her husband the right of a father. I hope Cv 's need to show that real Priya Sharma somewhere coz its already 2 weeks behind.
Why Vikram and Neha's divorce HURT
Vikram and Neha were a couple with their plus and minuses but they surely felt more real. There was not a khadus falling in love with a sacrificing lamb. It was a story of two real people who met in an appropriate age,fell in love and had a family of 3 kids. They were adorable, funny, annoying but they were together. The man would work long hours, the lady would take care of the family. They would fight over their work, have their jealousy tiffs. But before the night, they would make it up. For me, they were a more ideal and realistic couple. And to see them fall apart after 17 years of married life for reasons unsaid, it was disheartening especially with the way it was shown. A moment of sadness followed by them signing their paper as a matter of fact was a huge shocker. If you needed tracks to show them as parallel leads, they could have been utilized for bringing Raya together again. Their financial condition to grow up kids becoming difficult and Neha taking up a new profession could have been another track. It somehow felt really crazy to mess up the whole structure to recreate since the Cv's don't have a better way of story telling.
My heart sank yesterday. I was miserable. But now I think there were some pointers always. Vikram being a Casanova(his character sketch on Sony website and recent comment by Ram and Vikram accepting it). Remember, Ram asking about any new chakkar to Vikram(pre-wedding days). Later, she said she will ask him about his GFs when Ram and Priya come to their house for the first time. And again over condolence messages for Priya. But CVs took it too far and to unrealistic level. Whatever it is , I was heart-broken.
I totally remember the Casonova bit but was portrayed in Season 1 was a man who had moved onto being a wonderful husband and father for a decade. Its just gonna be disheartening if they take this route to butcher Vikram inroder to justify the mess. I was heart broken too coz these two were really close to my heart as a couple.
Nayi Shuruaat doesn't have to mean all characters have to lose their core.
That's what my point is! Else let them change the name of the show!
Another thing on Ram liking books. He might not like Shakespeare but when he asked PRiya what she was reading(Karwa Chauth night?) she says 'Neither night nor day' and he says good choice. He has it in him :-)
Very true! But he wasn't an avid reader who would run around bookstores to buy books. Rem,he is the guy who can get the book details at the touch of his tablet as they showed in season1. Maybe they could have done a better job at connecting the BALH book alone rather than the sudden burst of book loving.
