Jai, I agree about Ankita, for she was the only good thing about the show, and at that she was wasted, especially towards the end. She looked very nice throughout, but then she could not help that even if she tried!
I would not be anywhere near as tolerant of Sachin. He was wooden throughout and stupid at the end.And as for the daayan,
the less said the better. But Jai, Rasika was good till the end, and it is she who slashes at her son's face and makes the demon disappear. I think you must have dozed off, which would not be surprising!
As for the firewalking, I have seen that done at temple ceremonies in Tamil Nadu, and the devotees emerge without even a blister on their feet. It seems to be a case of the mind dominating the body.
I think I understand why Ekta made this opening episode with Ankita. It was to silence our constant complaints about her CVs by making us feel that even PR would be better!

The only good thing about the show was Anki.Anki and her acting kept me watching.The storyline unfortunately was not as impressive as the promos. It was bit flat and not scary but Anki acted brilliantly and liked Anki-Sachin pairing,
Was refreshing to see Anki in a slightly different avatar.
Well Ekta is a clever woman ,she knows how to sell her stuff and she is using her top actress to promote her movie which seems to have a medicore storyline.Well it sells and this show will be a hit for sure.
Good job Anki n Sachin too
I was wondering how come our Rasika thai was shown good initially as Anki's saas but then in the end we know our Rasika thai is Rasika after all
Shyamala dear well said.Well its what you call fighting fire with fire.
I feel that Ekta through this epi not only knew that her promotion strategy would be successful as she is using Ankita but also in a way to silence any upcoming rumors that might arise of Anki quitting and all is not well between her and Anki. Perfect strategy.
hahahaha yes Shyamala true about Rasika. Actually that was a surprise to me in a way (probably only surprise element to me) about Rasika how they kept her positive in the end.
When I read the reviews of the first epi ,I understood this strategy has worked for Ekta as the tag name "Ankita" was needed and it worked for her.Ekta knew it would work as Anki has done this before "taking onus of carrying a medicore storyline of PR after the 18 year leap."
Similarly I am sure she has other top actress in coming weeks to follow which will also work.The idea of selling a medicore storyline with exemplary actors is nothing new to Ekta and currently she is doing that by using her top actress.
