I happened to catch last night's episode b4 going out to do the fireworks. Won't comment on the credibility of the story - nothing to add to what others have said, and nothing new there anyway. Obviously, the new PH is trying the same formula that was such a hit when the show started, but just like a cake that was baked a year ago is no good to eat now, likewise...
Was this the last scene of Gayatri and Sunishta? In the breakfast table, while watching them, it was sad to see them not wanting to eat, while if Sundar goes like this for a few months, he would lose his obesity. On another rote, it was painful watching Sia in all-white, as her being a widow has sunk in. Of course, it's her choice, but I don't recall seeing Komal in all white - she'd wear normal clothes like everyone else.
Also, the filmy dialog they gave Viraj - this is not your answer, it's your anger - that's not Viraj @ all. The real Viraj would have intercepted her slap, hit her back or something.
Sia took however many months b4 she fell in love w/ Raghav. Now, a mere shock treatment is supposed to make her forget him and go back to Viraj? I've often read in other forums how serial and movie makers know squat about medical science, and this is one more. There is no electrical therapy that would just erase the Raghav parts of Sia's brain, while leave her w/ Viraj's. Also, how does that even compute? If all she is left w/ is Viraj's memories, they are ugly memories - why would she want to marry him based on that?
I was hoping that the shock treatment would kill Sia, so that she'd be out of her misery and that Sriti would get freed up. Then make it a bare knuckles war b/w Viraj and Rana, and make that the rest of the serial - a cat & mouse game until one of them wins. Viraj disabling the 2 guards just like he was Raghav - too filmy as well. Also, I know that the CVs may think that Raghav's family is dull, but if Sia has been abducted, wouldn't her family - Gayatri & Sundar - swing into action?
