"Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well"
Its been a wonderful journey with NBT! Be it the story, the characters, the star cast, the sequences, the ups and downs! It had everything that had us glued to the screen, even in its down times!
The concept of widow with two kids and a bachelor! Ofcourse a salute to them for their bravery in trying out amidst the regular soaps! Hope more such makers come forward to try out something different, not to give in for any pressure and prove to stay different all throughout!
"The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness!"
So its only goodness that I'm thinking of NBT and of course we are all in praise for those wonderful things that were brought onscreen!
I do admire elegance and appreciate for things that are beautiful and awesome in life! But more than that to me beauty lies in simplicity! And NBT brought that simplicity out in a manner that it became the grand effect and gave a new form for simplicity!
Bravo! To the team!
We are a bunch of different people, showing difference in everything about us! But what we all have in common is an appreciation for kindness and compassion! And we all lean towards love, in whatever form it is shown! We had this love and appreciation shown in every positive character of the show! Hats off to them and our appreciation are bound to happen for such an effort!
MMNAGJ - Every character can be talked about for hours and hours together! Analysis and Appreciation can be written for pages and pages! They brought in the flavor to our living rooms and filled it with pleasant feeling! Their positivity were so contagious that we were engrossed in them thus wanting to have their essence in us as well!
Inspiration, Awe effect, Awakening, Enthusiasm, Influence, Motivation, Fancy, Sparks... NBT brought various effects in us, in different forms! Not only that, it also brought out after effects in the viewers in the form of - Creativity, Stimulus, Brainstorm, Deep thinking, Visions, Thoughts...
And what more to say, the actors lived their roles to do justice to every character we saw onscreen! We cudn't have related to those characters if not for the actors! Wonderful job perfectly done by each one of them!
I firmly believe in making it a habit to tell people thank you and to express my appreciation! And that too sincerely without the expectation of anything in return! If we truly appreciate those around us, and soon we will find many others around us with positivity filled everywhere! If we truly appreciate life, then we will find and have more of it!
NBT has been special and will remain a special show for me, for very very long time! And the players, be it the team behind the camera or in front of it, will also be! Followers show their appreciation not just by uttering words but also by living them in different ways! I would like to be a follower by wishing them the best in their career and life! And if possible, to appreciate their work or efforts in their future projects! And for NBT 2 my hopes are high and I'm waiting to watch it with the same enthusiasm as for NBT 1!
Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha ' sneaked into the telly world early this year, quietly amassing a cult following. Much smaller compared to some of the great dramas on TV, the show had big things to talk about, making it easily one of the best experiments on Indian TV.
A simple story of a happy go luck reporter, Mohan, as he finds love in a widow with two children and in turn, the story of a widow, Megha, who gets a second lease of love and life, is not something we see often on TV.
Mohan Bhatnagar's perpetual journey towards infinite happiness, his struggles as they unraveled new experiences and emotions truly awakened the deepest of emotions in viewers. Mohan's compelling desire to love and to be loved allowed his journey to transcend through times of trials and tribulations.
Mohan Bhatnagar will remain in the hearts of viewers for a long time to come.
An utterly magnetic performance by Kunal Karan Kapoor at its center, a well-formed lead role by Akanksha Singh with the other supporting characters and actors, and its simple, realistic execution made it easily one of the best show viewers have witnessed in the recent times.
My salutations to the cast and the crew ' each and every person involved with this wonderful show.
Truly one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in a long time.
'A journey of a thousand miles starts with a step' they say. Let this be the first step towards that journey.
It's tough to start writing this but can't postpone or delay it anymore as the farewell day is upon us. Anyways, it's important for me to recount my journey, mostly smooth, sometimes rocky, of these 9 months with NBT and around 7 months with this forum.
I have seen quite a few members here saying that NBT is their first ever experience of regular Indian telly. I claim the rights to same category of people, I used to literally despise even the name/mention of Indian soaps. My mother and sister being regular avid watchers of soaps, always insisted that it's good time pass but me being me, had been eternally revolted towards anything related to soaps.
Anyways, was going through a major down phase in my life when even work was not proving enough to keep my mind occupied, not enough to shoo away the dark depressing thoughts. Mother's phone counselling is what brought NBT to my most vague notice. Mid-february, i finally decided to give my mother's words a chance (:p) , googled the name of "na bole tum na maine kuch kaha - watch online" and wow!! I got it and watched the then latest episode, and guess which one it was?? Had the good fortune to watch the "toy shop" MM scene as my first taste of them. Right then, it was enough to get me hooked, I went back, researched, opened big boss 5 finale ceremony and checked out NBT's short segment in it, it's promos and the works. Since then, there's been no looking back.
Had been acquainted with the existence of IF already, so decided to become a silent reader of forum updates/news segments. First venture of getting my account active was during the holi celebrations.
Feeling immensely sad about having to say farewell to my beloved show. It's been like a most-dear friend to me. It managed to pull me out of an abyss of darkness and blessed me with an alternate universe where all my spare hours, and more, went into following the dilchasp encounters of Mrs.Vyas and Mohan. Mrs. Megha Vyas so to say, was just a fictional character but in this case, everytime I saw her, the unreal became real and most tangible. This character, a portrayal of a lone woman's strength and code of going about her life, nourishing two beautiful children in such a way as to make Nanhi's every mannerism hold light up to her perfect upbringing. It was the moment when Mohan came running to an abrupt halt in front of a hands-outstretched steel-eyed Megha, that was the moment when i also came to halt alongside Mohan, since that point onwards, Mohan and Megha just became like my most cherished friends. Two individuals, who gave the term "being poles apart" a new meaning.
Mohan, an outwardly carefree bachelor and focused strong-minded professional, had his heart's eye unknowingly grappling to get hold of a mainstay, a foothold in the fast rushing life. Megha, a delicate vulnerable 28yr old girl serenading in the guise of a dry, stern widow. Pretending to presumably live her life for her kids' sake while letting isolation, desolation thrive and take veiled roots in the deepest recesses of her heart. Then came Nanhi, the cupid in disguise of an angelic adorable 8year old cutie pie. Mohan Nanhi's special friendship, is and will definitely remain a watershed concept in tellyland , for years to come. A friendship, free from the bindings of pleasure and mutual benefit, enduring hardships and attaining heights of adorability, week in and week out.
As these three characters and their mutual relationships went through the rigour of highs and lows of fate, i remained with them. I remember being in suspense, at the same time cheering the three musketeers on when the school gates were being shut in the face of Mohan's racing Damru.
Oh how i remember literally bouncing in anticipation to see Megha Mohan's reactions on their first ever encounter in Prabhat Leher office. It proved upto and went even beyond my expectations, they actually fought over "meri desk tumhari desk" :)) And of course, my heart skipped beats, whenever mohan threw those intense glances megha's way. Megha's pro-love and Mohan's anti-love lectures to a bewildered and hapless Karan. That memorable Jannat ka corridor where silence reined supreme but still, the eyes talked and oh did they talk!! Oh yes!! Some of my fav lines were the ones that were communicated in silence between MM :D
Mohan finally breaking the walls of cool reserve around his heart, to realize and accept that it's the warmth and music of Megha's laughter, her peace of mind and welfare that leads his heart. Megha struggling valiantly, against her very heart, by tying Amar's memories around her throat like a death noose, all but nearly killing her urge to live a happy life and find happy love.
All in all, the more that MM walked forward, the distance separating them stretched longer and longer. Their dream to attain their destiny but that destiny always ended up becoming just their dream. Yet they plod on, getting themselves lost in the way of their wishes/dreams but at last finding their happiness together.
All this and much more, like the wise person of Guru, sulking angry cutie Addu and sweetest Jiji, all of them combined formed my little friends circle for so many past months, it seems like a part of them has grown inside me hence i hope the gate of these memories always remains open, not in sad but in a sweet happy way. Thanks to the makers of NBT and it's whole star cast, so much for making me experience a wide range of emotions, the fleeting passion, hope, joy, pain and sweet depression. Thanks Nanhi for your angelic dialogues of wisdom and innocence, Guru for being GURU with his Maa-baapu stories, Mohan for giving a lesson to us in resilience and persistence, Megha for being an inspiration of self-confidence and high self-respect.
Will miss you NBT but not in sad way, not at all :D
Hi Dearies.. Finally the D-Day has arrived and like always I am too tongue tied to say anything..Should I be happy or sad ?? I am unable to conclude it. I am happy because it had been saved from severe butchering and might come back with original creatives team and sad because the massive appreciation could not saved it from the Dragon ratings. Its been a tumultuous ride since January 9, 2012 ..we laughed, we cried , we pulled our hairs, we offered to become assassin to kill someone unwanted and still some of us stayed till its last breathe. I am sure there would be many like me for whom this must have been first daily soap which I watched religiously from start to end.This is an achievement for us to sustain with humor, wars,loathe and peace.
Thought of writing more but words never help me on write-ups.The day I noticed the promo, I was hooked to it. This was one picture perfect, feel good story of some people whom I had not seen on TV circuit for long years. It has that simplicity which no other show had it.There are few things which keeps NBT stand apart from its contemporaries. And the credit goes to Original creatives..
USP of the show :
1) A Male protagonist, who is a Maa-ka-laadla son, but not Maa-ka-Palloo holding son. A child-man Hero who does not resemble a bit to any hero of TV land.Still he walks tall ..one who does not compromise on his principles but can give everything for the love of his life..
2) A Female Protagonist, who is a widow but not a typical "Abla-Naari".she is a strong, mature mother of two kids who never cried for the sake of her loved ones. never had a second thought to disbelieve her late husband and she kept struggling.
3) A super intelligent yet adorable child who understands her mother more than herself.a kid who never appeared obnoxious in terms of speaking "Badon waali Baatein". befriends a man whom she consider her problem solver, not a calculator ,not a computer. he is the one who makes her mummy happy. A child belief in Spider-man,who has the power to set everything right..And there is no doubt that spider-man never ran away from his responsibility.
4) Another Maa-ka-laadla son, but completely Maa-ka-palloo son. ok granted, since he is too young to deal with ugly world. he has been that innocent mind which can be moulded into anything.
5) A middle aged widow lady, who is not cunning..who is not plotting against any of DILs in house.she is an epitome of a strong willed lady who is financially independent and never holds grudges for anyone..a friend, guide, confidante of our Mirchi madam. 6) He does not need a mention ..rather deserves an applause .he has been one of the best character in recent times.no one considers helper as their brother, a guide , a friend..but he was not considered a helper even. An intelligently sketched character which portrayed the soul of Mohan. We often lands up in two minds and take helps from our closed ones..And he has been the one who without any question stood by Mohan through thick and thin.
7) Juna Mohalla and Vyaas Niwaas had been quite a realistic setting for a Middle class family which the entire characters belong to. I am happy that we were never showed any palatial homes..
8) Some non-livings sweet things which helped story movement..no, its not Bhaang induced effect and who was the partner in bed..Its our Favorite"Rumali" and "Amar ka Photo".. 9) No loud make up, No garish clothing and accessories..I am barring Renu..though she was still far better than other shows.. 10) Technical Team - A very crisp editing till long time, no unnecessary camera zooming-panning & rolling techniques (except some real dark times )
11) Festivals shown with apt natural vigor and underlying messages (except when Channel started raping it)
12) Last but not the least..A "dilchasp" story which touched many hearts and a dilchasp audience who fought hard to get it back * crossing my fingers* This is my first time to try hands on Farewell VM because I am one super lazy lady..There have been lots of fabulous VM makers in our forum ..Finally I could get inspiration from them ..It has come out bad,so please don't hit me if i wasted your time..But I really want to credit those who had encouraged me to give it a try.. Credit: Thanks and hugs to Fari, Siree, Sumi, Dhwani .
I could still very well remember the Saturday when i was returning to Central Secretariat from AIIMS in the metro and saw the Ad of a new upcoming show named "Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh kaha" from 9th Jan 10:30PM onwards. I could vaguely remember the male lead from LRL and Zee TV's Maayka which my mom used to watch. The lady too caught my attention but i didn't took it seriously since that slot was fixed till then for BALH. I missed the first week and luckily or unluckily (since feeling sad on its end) that Saturday my plan of outing got somehow cancelled and so i just turned on the TV set in afternoon. From 3: 30 to 5:30 they ran the entire week's telecast. That two hours of just one week made me understand, neither such kinda stories come often in small screen nor the show will be like any other popular potboilers of recent times.
I still thank in my mind the friend who spoiled my week-end plan on that specific saturday (though i cussed him until then)and thereby providing me with the chance to catch hold of this wonderful show. If that saturday i wasn't sitting idle, i dont know whether i would have followed this iconic show.
Dear friends, hope you are all doing well. On this last day of NBT, I am overwhelmed with the thought of parting ways (though temporarily) with NBT. I feel depressed, lost, blank.. But then I remember something almost similar or bigger happened to me a little while ago. I would like to share it with you. Hope I am not emotionally bugging you!
My father had a farm. A small farm filled with fruit-bearing trees, beautiful garden, seasonal crops, animals that had become like family... And it was in the middle of a thick forest! I grew up there, spent the first six years of my childhood and subsequent summer and winter holidays.
From my backyard, I could see numerous wild animals, various kinds of birds. Roaming in that forest admiring the beauty of it, making some wonderful observations about the nature was my favourite past time! I have once seen a real wild tiger in that forest, I saw a flying bird getting covered with the thick smoke of forest fire and finally falling in to it after a futile attempt to come out of the smoke maze! The life there was so real, so unique, so natural... no ready made pattern, no two things were same... no cages, no sign boards, no rules...!
I was very much attached with that farm and the forest surrounding it. Even after I grew up, moved to a city, got married and moved in and out of country, visited many wonderful places... this was the place that I held close to my heart! It was special. It made me feel happy, comforted me whenever I felt depressed of lonely.. Whether I was physically present or not, It was the place I could find myself in when I needed some 'me, myself' time!
But my father had to sell it, as he could not take care of it anymore. it was a painful decision for all of us. I felt heartbroken, my whole family was sad. But we had to move on. And we did! I still cherish the memory of that wonderful place. It will live in my memory till my end! I don't feel sad as I used to earlier, because I have understood that 'it (my attachment with that place) is worthy enough to be counted among one the finest things to happen to me in life'!
NOW, 'Na Bole Tum...' was like my father's farm for me (though at some other level)! I feel the same way I felt when father decided to sell the farm. But I firmly believe everything happens in the way it is destined to happen. So, I would like to bid farewell to it with happiness. I am happy that I still have loads of good moments of it with me- the serial and the forum, permanently inked in my memory book ! I am glad I could earn so many good friends because of NBT.

Hoping to c u all on NBT 2.
I had watched NBTNMKK from the very first episode, up until the honeymoon. Then I decided to stop watching it. I used to be posting predictions and making VMs on NBT forums all the time (I was also one crazy fan lover of Kunal). So today, I decided to watch the last episode of NBT.
The last 5 minutes...where Vyas and Bhatnagar family talked to the camera and the way they brought back all the past memories with flashbacks...I had goosebumps the entire time. Then I started to tear up. I realized, that even though I didn't like the last track, I'm really going to miss NBT for the next few months.
I can't wait until season two begins. Until then, I'm going to start the episodes from episode one again.
Looking forward to see what's in store in season two in January!
Finally the day is here...just watched the last episode of our fav NBT. sad that from monday onwards there won't be any NBT or i won't wait for clock to strike 10:30 however, happy that all the efforts of you all fans here paid off n we l get to see NBT 2 soon. the official confirmation at the last was so reassuring leaving no room for doubt n i was like "yess man aab to ayega hi"
i felt as nanhi was actually crying when they were talking about going away from sometime. oh man i l miss nanhi-mohan a lot.
junna mohalla ke Mohan aur uski Mirchi madam ki dilschap stroy ne dil jeet liya tha. it did not take me long to get hooked to the show.
flashbacks in the last episode made me nostalgic!! nanhi and her innocent way of praying is really really cute. her devotion is so pure. she asks for happiness with extreme faith and then thanks god too. there no exchange offer with God...u give me this I l do that. its so sweet.
nanhi ka spiderman uska papa bann hi gya. aur mrs vyas apne monu ki Mrs bann gyi...mohan ka unconditional love made all this happen. mohan is a guy every girl would want.
can't find any more words for mohan-megha-nanhi... jiji has been megha's support system n our Guru has been mohan's support through out. there are the support system of NBT...
Teri vo pyaar ki intehaan (mohan)
Tere inkaar me bhi haan hona (megha)
Tera vo hamare dil pe chah jana (MN)
Teri vo choti choti pyaari pyaari batein (nanhi)
Teri vo kahaniya (guru)
Naahi Bholenge HUM (Fans)
I'm proud to be a fan of NBTNMKK,
NBT has given the most beautiful love stories forever! The two people(Mohan & Megha) when they come togetehr become the perfect lovers ever! Its given me a wonderful cast which i will always remember! &i'm proud to be a fan of 2 talented actors (Kunal & Aakanksha) and beautiful people and thankful to NBTNMKK for giving me these two people in my life, Thanks alot & Thnx again to NBT becuz if this show will not start so how i will find wonderful friends, like Anshu, Manesha, Deb, Ami & all of u i cant say all name right now, here are many good friends, thnx to all for helping me & making me as ur friend
Will miss you all
Mohan & Megha ki dilchasp Love Story (Lets Watch what happen from the Start till the End)
Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha (Must watch season 2)
And finally, Our most beloved show has come to an end!
I'm happy they're gonna be back with a season-2, but the pain caused by NBT 1.0's end cannot be hidden! I dont know what to say, and how to express what I really feel now! Right now, a feeling of depression, pain has completely over-taken me!
I've seen my Mom watch several Indian soaps and I, myself have tried quite a few! But nothing ever succeeded in keeping me hooked, quite like NBT! I always thought, addiction never lasts for long! One wrong thing, it just fades away! But NBT proved it all wrong with me! Even though, we faced some worst situations in the show, I could never say 'no' to NBT. I daily used to wait for the show with the same excitement! And now, when it has finally come to an end, I feel as if, I've lost something really really precious to me and life has lost its all motives along!
Talking of how I got hooked to the show, well, I was pretty late! It was during March, when I was home, for holidays. While I was browsing through the channels, totally bored! Thats when, I saw a guy talking to himself, 'Nahi Mohan, ab tu aur koi help nahi karega' Aftering saying these words to himself, I saw him running with a file towards the cabin, which I later got to know is Mr.Mohan Bhatnagar and is running to help the girl he refused to, moments ago! Thats it! I sat back with my lappy, and found links to all the episodes. Then there was no looking back! Dheere se haule se, I fell for the show!
Mrs.Vyas! What do I say about this women? People say, if you admire a women at your first sight, then thats mainly coz of her looks. But in this women, not only her serene beauty, but also her simplicity and courageous attitude made me not only admire but also respect her. She've taught me and all of us, a very important lesson in life, that life is certainly not easy and we have to struggle. Struggle to live. A women,who taught her children the best, and always remained strong for their sake. Hats off to her will power! Women, capable of giving immense love, except for Amar being the only Man to have recieved it and as destiny played a brutal game, her love was snatched forever! Thats when, this show taught us and the society that being a widow is never one's mistake and every soul deserves a second chance! :') Now I can say, that yes, I'm strong enough, infact, someone has made me strong enough, to face all the difficulties in my life, smiling! I'm ready to go through the path, and situations life has in store for me.
Because someone said, 'Zindgi hamein jitna rulaayegi,
hum utna haske dikhaayenge..
jitna humein rokegi..
hum utna aage badte jaayenge..
jitna humein aasmaayegi..
hum utna uska band bajaayenge' Here comes another personality, whom I'm in love with..head over heels! Mr. Mohan Bhatnagar! Where do I start? If I begin with his looks, then I'd probably end up even describing what I saw in his each tangled curly locks! Be that his most expressive eyes, that pointy nose, or his 'rare' smile. All kept me drooling over him and drowning in his love. A Man with his own principles and rules. A Man, so careless but also would sacrifice his everything for people whom he love. Here, I learnt one more lesson. One should always follow their heart, and should stand with truth, whatsoever and to remain hopeful. A man, who loved a women like no other but had to lie and laugh at his own truth about his love. Because In his own words, 'Use khone ka dar..use paane ki khushi se kayi zyaada hain.' But, he fought. He fought for his love even after thousand refusals. And this often kept me wondering, that what is that thing, that connected them through their heart and not through words. Hats off to you! We love, admire, and respect you and are also inspired by you! :')
Talking about Mohan-Megha, it might take a day long, and yet would be unfinished! A love, so pure and so magical! Two lovers, who made me believe that it is possible to mum those thousand words just through your eyes, without a word being spoken! I felt so drowned in their love, that the fact that I used to crave for weekends was a past, and the time came, when they actually used to drive me crazy!
This show introduced me to some of the rarest, purest and the most beautiful relation in this world. Chawanni - Spiderman. Mohan - Guru! Honestly, I find no word..which could exactly describe the kind of love they share. It is beyond the relation of love,friendship and brotherhood we know and they take it altogether to a different level. Bless them! <3
Not only Mohan-Megha, But I fell in love with each of the characters! Each one of them, taught me some or the other facts about life. Be that Jiji, Addu,Papaji, Maa ji, Renu, Sanjay. They were always like a simple, middle-class family next door. And we saw ourselves in them. :))
And also, NBT has the biggest hand in bringing me back to IF discussions and introduce me to some awesome personalities I found here, in MMT! You guyz are so special to me and I love you all so much! Now, I'm so attached to you all that life without MMT and you all has certainly become unimaginable!
Here I conclude my part, tying a knot, praying to god, that our season-2 should be equally beautiful, taking us through some different shades of life. Like My heroine taught me, I'm not gonna break down, instead, I'm smilingly ready to welcome the three months and as My hero taught me, I'm gonna remain hopeful and positive about a new and fresh start! :)))
"I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars." - Stephenie Meyer! :))
'Dhinchak Dhichak Dhinchak Dhichak' rang Mohan's mobile in the promo of NBT. Mohan fumbled before he could find his mobile in his pant pockets. The kids laughed, Mrs. Vyas was amused. The scene froze and a voice in the BG said 'Yeh hai Mrs. Vyas aur Mohan ki... dilchasp kahani'. The promo was so interesting that I started waiting for January 9th 2012. Oh and did I forget Addu's 'Wait here' gesture when Mohan asked for Mrs. Vyas with a lollypop in his mouth. That was the cutest part of that promo . The subsequent promos were just as interesting but this one stands out in my memory. And honestly speaking I never thought this would be a love story. The promos never hinted at that. I have seen loads of television soap pr0mos which just screams out that it is a love story. Hero serenading the heroine, dupattas flying all over, leads dancing away in dreamland like sets. Everything just screams that it is a LOVE STORY! But the NBT promos was so refreshing. A definite puller for people like me who had never watched a daily soap from start till end earlier. And I saw the promo at such a time when I had started despising Indian telly shows. Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans said John Lennon. I can tweak it to say NBT is what happend to me when I was busy despising Indian Television soaps.
On January 9th, the 1st episode was aired. I loved the simplicity of Mrs. Vyas. Her attire, her make up, her behaviour everything was simple. Quite a refreshing change from the usual OTT heroines we see on television. And she was meant to be simple almost austere in appearance, because she was a widow. But this simplicity was the beauty of this woman. She was shown missing her husband, craving for that one moment where she could just have one cup of tea with him. My heart went out for her. And then came Mohan. I must say though his entry in the show was very filmy where he was shown chasing a girl with camera focussing on his shoes for most parts, it was by far the best entry of any male lead. I thoroughly enjoyed it because it was interspersed with the prayers of a innocent little angel of a girl Nanhi who prayed for that someone who can make Mrs. Vyas her pehli wali Mummy.I got curious to know how Mrs. Vyas was before Amar died.
But the first episode was really not reason enough for me to get hooked on to this show. My love for NBT grew over a period of time. Just like Mohan's love for Megha, as he had described it 'Dheere se, Haule se kab pyaar hua pata hi nahi chala'. I really did not realise when I had fallen head over heels in love with this show. So much that I started hating weekends when this show would not air.This was one show where I loved the supporting cast as much as the leads. Infact at times I loved the bonding between Mohan and Nanhi more than Mohan and Megha. Perfect cast and genius makers. God bless them. Mohan is one of the best characters and one of my main reasons for falling in love with this show. Mohan Bhatnagar is one of the best male character I have come across in any medium of fiction. At one point I had rated him next to Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind - my favourite fictional male character. I fell in love with Mohan Bhatnagar when he started to look out for Mirchi Madam when he got to know Prateek's lecherous intentions. In any other show if the male lead who is not in good terms with a female lead had seen a male getting physically close to the female lead, he would have misunderstood the lady. But Mohan knew Megha so well even when he was not in good terms with her. He knew that she was innocent and started to feel protective about her. My respect for him grew by leaps and bounds. And I fell in love with him. Megha. I wondered what about her connected with me. Then I realised, Megha by character is just like one of the closest people to me. My Mother-in-law. My Father-in-law was a very nice man. He helped everyone who came to him for help in the best of his capacity. He died one day and left a heap of debt to be cleared off. My mother-in-law, who for most part of her life, was confined to looking after the house and her kids stepped out after that to look after my FIL's business and made sure that all the debts were cleared. I could totally relate to Megha because she was just like my MIL. A person who is so courageous, who has a never say die attitude and someone who does not take shit lying down.
I can go on and on about the various characters in this show. The various bonds we got to see. MN, MG, MJ (Megha-Jiji), Renu-Guru nok-jhok. But words will fail me. Especially if I start writing about MN and MG. Needless to say one of the purest relationships I have seen in television. I dont know if I will be able to do justice to them. So I will let them be. Untouched and Pure.
To the entire team of Na Bole Tum.. - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Honestly I'm overwhelmed right now. Feeling nostalgic when I think of the moment I fell in love with this show after watching Mohan, his Chawanni and Mirchi Madam.
Proud to be a die hard fan of such a classic show. I've always considered the characters as my own buddies and so, I actually lived their journey with them; laughed my heart out in their joy, smiled and blushed in the moments of bliss and cried buckets in their pain. I'm attached to this show in such a way that while watching the finale episode, I felt as if something "APNA" is being taken away from me, even though, for a short period of time.
NBT is now an integral part of my life and it's going to be tough to live without it for sometime but anyways, anything for the show and you all.
Thanks a zillion once again to this fantastic show for making me happy whenever I felt sad or upset in any moment of my life and giving me the BEST days of my life. God bless you all. :)
Can't wait to watch NBT back on screen. So happy. Thanks a million Sonal ma'am for writing the story and the characters with all your heart and Kunal, Aakanksha and all the cast for putting your 200% all the time.
We live like a family with our favourite show NA BOLE TUM NA MAINE KUCH KAHA since 9th Jan,it is sooo hard to let the show go off.I start watching this show casually,the promo attracts me...a different type of love story between a bachelor and an widow with two kids...but I dont know when and how it comes so nearer and nearer to me...now i am so totally drained out,feel so sad and painful..I never know this will hurt me so much.I feel so grateful to NBT and also so depressed that we cant celebrate its 1st anniversary.
Thanks you all the crew and casts of this show.
Thanks Kunal,Akansha,Ashnoor,Dushyant,Madhuriji and all to make the so beautiful and believable.
Best of luck for your future projects.
I honestly don't know what to write about the show or how to frame my feelings into words. NBT was something much more than a daily soap to me, it was like a stress buster in a usual hectic life those 30 mins would always leave a smile on my face and I enjoy those 30 mins to the fullest.
I remember watching the teaser and getting curious. At first it appeared to be a common love story of a landlady and her tenant but the sentence "Mohan aur Mrs. Vyas ki dilchasp story" triggered something within. I had seen many love stories but a story of young lad with a mother of two kids was something new to Indian television and apart from liking for Kunal from LRL days, the concept which came into focus through those 30 seconds teasers contributed in making me anxious for the show.
And NBT proved out to something entirely different perhaps a show of substance with logical characters. It explored so many different relation, introduced so many shades of a human personality.
A show where there was no evil Saas to provide masala and to make life of the Bahu a living hell instead it gone through the life of a common man.
A clumsy young lad who believes in living a carefree life but not at cast of his morals and principles. He was man of principles but was not an ideal figure, He was a perfect example of imperfect humans.
A domestic help who was a brother like friend of the lad and was innocent like a baby.
A woman, mother of two kids whose life was not a cake walk. Each day would bring a new struggle but in she knew how to spread happiness in those miseries and shield her kids from those hardships. Almost every woman could see her image in her as at one point or other they had been through same.
A l'll kid who was forced to grow up after her father's unfateful demise but with her innocence intact. She was her mother's support system, always tried her level best to ease some of her mother's pain. All daughters could visualize themselves in all her actions.
A mother like aunt who was always behind Megha. Gone through the same and knowing how difficult life is of a single woman she was always there to spread joy in Megha's life, to find a way to get all the colours of her life back.
NBT had other special characters too. Everything about NBT was just special and always meaningful. But I don't know how to go on further since words are not supporting me anymore.
I just want to say a big T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U to the entire cast and crew for thinking something like NBT and pulling it so well.
And now when season 1 has met with its end, I can say it had been a wonderful journey since 9th Jan 2010. NBT would certainly get counted in the classic pieces of Indian telly.
Waiting for season 2 anxiously. May it gets all it dues that it could not get with this season.
Hoping for another wonderful show by the same amazing ensemble.
For years, Indian daily soaps were synonymous with 'Saas-Bahu sagas'. But, what mattered is the point that they still worked. As popular with the audience as could be. Flying hair, intense eye-locks, damsel in distress falling right into her knight in shining armour's arms. Well-behaved leads, and their bubbly, small town leading ladies. Shows kept on coming, same stereotyped, with different characters.
And then one day came a promo of a new show. A guy at the door, irritated it seemed. And to describe him, I find 'Jhalla' is the best word. Unkept hair, a hilarious ringtone, clumsy, untied shoe-laces ah ! Imperfect. The first ever thing I noticed that was UNIQUE about this show. Then came the leading lady. Simple, with hair tied in a bun and a plain sari. Beauty in simplicity. And then came two wonders - a little lady and her brother. That day, I was blissfully unaware of the tremendous effect these people would have on my life.
I have so many memories with this show, so many 'first-times' associated with it.
I joined IF in 2008 and came here on and off. Was a newbie when this show started, and am a Dazzler now. This show made me want to come here and express my disbelief at how refreshingly fresh the concept seemed. How every single day we had something unique to boast about, discuss about. For the first time in my life, I had predictions that went terribly and miserably wrong. For the first time, a daily soap story seemed mature, REALISTIC. And well...magical!!!
It was this show, that made me want to write. I don't know how I write, but I realised it didn't matter. The characters of this show, their beautiful relationships made a special place in our hearts. Memories like Spiderman-Chavanni scenes, Guru-Bhaiyya scenes, Jhalla-Mirchi madam scenes and the magical Mohan-Megha scenes are memories each Na Bole Tum fan will cherish for a lifetime. Here are two poems I wrote - on Monu and his Chavanni
Poem on Monu aka Mohan Bhatnagar
Cute sa banda
Office ka star
Maa ka laadla
Guru ka guroor
Par banda ye
Aadat se Majboor !
Vaise to hai ye
Dil ka achha
Par baaton mein
Hai bilkul kachcha
Madad ke irade se
Kehna kuch chhahe
Par ye bichaara
Kehke kuch aaye
Samajhdar bhi hai,
Hai thoda shaitaan
Bachpane se bhara
Aur thoda nadaan
Chhoti si Chavanni
Hai iski jaan
Aur Spiderman ye
Us bacchi ki shaan
Bada hi anokha
Inka ye rishta
Ek hai pari
To duja farishta
Mirch madam se ladaai
Aur apni 'biwi'
Guru ki buraai
Par dil se karta
Hai dono ko salaam
Maanta hai asan nahi
Dono ne jo kiye kaam.
Chhoti si problem
Aur "Arrey YAAAR !"
Banaye hum sab ko
'Sunna'deewani baar baar
Aisa ye Monu humaara
Gadbad ki pudiya
Sweet iska middle name
Aur hathyaar media
And this one's on Nanhi aka Navika Vyas
Ye chhoti si Nanhi
Monu ki chavanni
Dikhti hai bachchi
Par ise samjho na kachchi
Apni maa ki bhi maa hai
Sab pe ye bhaari haa hai
Guru-Mohan ko sunaye
Safai pe taane
Vo dono bichaare
Iski saari baatein maane
Maanti hai dost
Karti hai pyaar
Aur dil se bharosa
Apne spiderman pe yaar
Kehne ko to ye
Hai bas 8 saal ki
Par samajh anokhi
Ise hai halaat ki
Maalkin Guru ki
Thodi si shaitaan
Ye hai Monu ki jaan
Sab ki dulari
Maa ki pyaari
Dadima ye humaari
Hai sabse nyaari
With characters that made us fall in love with them, relationships that made is believe in them, emotions that made us feel with them and a storyline that kept us glued to them, this show had all that is required to be Magical.
Now comes one of the most important thing for a show to run successfully - acting. That's a word we rarely got to associate with the characters in this show. Be it Mohan Bhatnagar, be it Mrs.Vyas, be it Guru or be it Nanhi, we lived the charaters like the actors did. I doubt there have been as many topics on "OMG KKK is FANTASTIC !! His acting today was FLAWLESS" anywhere else ! Not only fans, even critics had to give him that. Be it 'jhalla', be it 'crime reporter', be it Nanhi's 'spiderman', be it the smitten 'Monu', he played all the roles flawlessly, beautifully. So did Akanksha Singh and Ashnoor.
NBT was the reason I learnt to make avis and siggies. Beacuse I wanted to celebrate it, brag about it, boast about the face that I was, am, and always will be a die hard Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha fan. Waiting for the season 2 impatiently
Here are some of my creations on some magical moments of the show..
