Ok so I know I disappeared on all of you, and most of, if not all of you have probably forgotten me by now! But I just came by to say hi, apologize for disappearing but honestly I can't completely bc I will disappear all over again LOL. I just have a SUPERBLY busy schedule, and for me it's best to go back to my silent member status and roam around on IF thru my phone than actually be active/post bc sadly there is no actual DEK on air to obsess over. I joined/became active on IF for DEK and DEK only. Sigh. I really do wish you all well, but I honestly can't be obsessive anymore, I mean everyone who did read my posts know about my mom's strict control over my IF obsession when DEK was on, so honestly the only way I am allowed to be on IF is if I am silent bc of my busy schedule. sigh. You win some, you lose some, na? So I shall use this rare miracle allowed by mommy dearest wisely and just post this message for everyone! =) I hope all are doing well, I too miss DEK and hope for a season 2, considering the Sony line-up of their new fiction shows, I am NOT impressed, more on that later, first you guys! LOL
Again, I am SO SORRY! But yes I will not be active, I will try to like stuff more, but I will be on silent member status, as you know strict restrictions as told by mommy dearest . As for not replying to PMs...EEEk SORRY! LOL. Sorry I know is not enough, but I know myself, I start PMing..I will NEVER stop...but I did feel guilty so like i said before I wanted to drop by and say hi for those who do rmr me or if you don't that's fine too, a friendly hello I hope is always welcome on this forum! =)
So wow a lot of things that have happened in the past couple of months LOL. Some of things I am hopeful for.Or annoyed with, whichever LOL
OK before I start, I must have this disclaimer. You may agree or disagree, that is fine. This is JUST my opinion/analysis. PLEASE do NOT get offended, this is NOT an attack on anyone, well maybe Sony...but again this all STRICTLY my opinion. If I hurt your feelings/perspective on certain things, this is not meant for that, I am just trying to get two months of stuff out bc this is probably the ONLY moment in time I will be allowed to post ANYTHING for the foreseeable future...sigh.
1. LMYAM- First off, what an awful show. I tried watching the first week (which btw was SUPER difficult with DEK just ending and I, still grieving) and just gave up. Or so I thought...Then I tried to be nice, try again week 2, it was just as awful. For me how promising a drama will be, is witnessed in the first week. This show did NOT impress. It is UNORIGINAL, and honestly the pathetic copy of Ek Hazaaron, except they took out the sister part, and made them friends who are like sisters to each other, to make it "different." This show honestly had the potential to be smart, funny, witty, but honestly its NONE of the above, with such an unoriginal style of writing the shows screenplay/script. The creatives are a SUPREME disappointment. Not only in casting the LM couple (seriously where is the chemistry in LM couple?? OR development BTW--again you don't have to agree, this is just my personal thoughts/feelings), then the storyline which BTW is there any sort of storytelling going on??? I think the CVs are confused every week as to what they want to do, and furthermore what's the concept or whole point of this show??? Is it a saas bahu drama masquerading as a mature show about LM and AM, or a mature show masquerading as a saas bahu drama?? PICK ONE option creatives!! UGH!! Preferably the one where you don't have kitchen politics and stupid conflicts that make NO SENSE! Sorry I just can't believe THIS show replaced DEK...SERIOUSLY??? Honestly DEK was getting its TRPs back towards the end, slowly but gradually. LMYAM? this show never rated above 1!!! At least DEK started off STRONG and had an ACTUAL storyline with potential for MUCH MUCH more! *SMH*
2. Sony- Is just ridiculous. Their ENTIRE line-up, excluding Kya Hua for now, this year have been creative/TRP failures! Let's start with 1. Kya Hua: a show about how its okay for a guy to cheat on his wife bc marriage is more important 2. Shubh Vivah: 5 sisters. I dont' have go further bc you know what 5 sisters reminds me of?? KAHIN TO HOGA! MY GOD another Sony pathetic version of an iconic show. Also I think this SV show was suppose to be a copy of a Marathi drama which was apparently about a suffering bahu and a mean saas. YAWN. Been there done that Sony. HOW they thought this show was a good idea?? I just don't know. *smh* THEN the hattrick of all crap comes along, Byah Hamari Bahu Ki!!! W*F??? Did this show even have a storyline?? BC I am sure they betrayed their original concept, whatever it was, within a month of its being on air! I have already talked about LMYAM, so moving onto Honge Juda Na Hum. OK now this show seemed promising, but it has proven to be a snooze fest like LMYAM, well LMYAM is worse, but still snooze fest which is SUCH a shame since the lead pair actually had great chemistry unlike a certain couple in LMYAM. HOnestly HJNH seems like the pathetic version of IPK, where the characters drive each other crazy but love each other, they tried to make that different with the amnesia twist, but honestly, its a disappointment. OH and Anamika?? I am not a horror story show fan, so that's a personal bias, but seriously?? Why can't Sony DO better?? They just seem to jump on the bandwagon these days, I mean Zee has Fear Files so now Sony is like oh we need a horror show now too?? Honestly Sony was onto being creatively different, last year at this time when they had groundbreaking shows like Parvarish, Kuch toh log Kahenge, BALH, DEK being released. 2012, they have shown faith in stupid run of the mill concepts, copying other channels, but not being creative themselves. Honestly the ONLY Sony show I am curious about is the Beauty And the Beast show, otherwise this once at the top, creative channel has lots its touch to me. Honestly if they did a DEK 2, maybe they could be no. 1 again, bc this show was creative, different, characters with depth/growth, and a potentially great storyline. Honestly, why not?? Sony seems to be sucking at creating new interesting shows...SMH.
3. Things that I am thankful for- Byah is officially dead. LMYAM will soon follow, THANK GOD (sorry to all who like this show, but I don't, I rather wait for AK to get an awesome role/show that will actually give him success rather than see him be wasted playing a one tone character with no depth, even though he tries, poor guy can't help being given such a terribly written storyline/characters---AGAIN, this is just an opinion guys!) Also DIGITIZATION!!! THANK GOD!! Finally a more representative, not perfect, way of counting TRPs! And honestly I am so glad bc it means MORE diverse content, well EVENTUALLY lol. But I hope digitization brings a much needed effect on the content we are served by major GECs!
4. PG is in Pakistani Fear Factor?? WHOA. Girl really is a wild cat LOL. Shri in a new show BFF? Playing a grey shades character again? LOL. Best of luck to both of them, although I think PG is already done shooting, but still best of luck LOL!
That is all! LOL. THanks for bearing my rants LOL. And again sorry for being MIA, as I will continue to be, but I do think of you guys, its just not possible to be active here for me, but I did want to drop by to at least give a reason/explanation.
As for everyone else, agains thanks for reaching out to me and remembering me, its really sweet of you all! I honestly found it really hard to even stay on the forum, bc losing DEK was just awful. The only show I have been super attached too. Anyway like I said, dropped by to say hi and share thoughts/feelings about stuff LOL. I won't be able to reply back, if indeed any of you rmr me, but I will surely hit like to let you know I have read your comment if you have!
Sidenote to Kat: Anyways Kat, I know you had a SUPER personal question to ask me thru PM, so I will respond back to that, I actually even tried, but your inbox is full??? I will just post a scrap in case you don't come on the DEK forum
