Anu.. so glad to see you are following this show..
may get to discuss it with someone while I try getting some of my friends on board
hmm interesting I saw the director's name and was like Bong sensibility
but dk his body of work.. also Zama Habib is handling the screenplay and story and the guy can be good if given space..
speaking of the show in the last week.. I am totally in love with Kanwaljeet/ Zor and in fact his equation with Kittu and his Madamjee (till now I didn't figure Supriya's screen name was Amrit) .. I love all the scenes between the duo/ parents. there is this old-school feel to it.. like the good old day's shows.
the bro- sis scene about the dhoop holding was poignant . All of last week was the buildup and establishment of the premise has been good with the climactic revelation on friday. I was looking forward to the scene where Zor finds out.. And wow was Kanwaljeet's reactions heartbreaking.. there was this pathos in his silence.. my fave bit is this silent understanding and volumes spoken btw Zor/ Amrit when he says Madamjee wo humare kamre mein rahegi and she assures him.. there was a lot of undercurrents to that bit. seriously what veteran actors can do to a good script..
the young cast is good and has pleasing presence.. one show that is looking good.. let's see how long.. I only hope the light/ positive feel remains - it does have the old DJs shows feel. loving the family moments and looking fwd to more.. each and every equation is cute.
P.S the lil kid is naturally cute if you know what I mean. nice to see they havent overdone the cutesy- bits with him yet. I loved the bit where he goes - we could have had cake if we were with Nanu.. had me smiling.. that's innocence..
P.P.S Idk if its the physical distance with folks.. but I got a tad-bit emotional at the exchange between Zor and Shraddha on friday.. the softness in his fatherly authority was soo real.. Its like no matter how old a child is and is living their own battles- the parents tender touch in their voice of assurance/ support even from miles away gives this strength.. hard to explain.. its like the feeling of being sheltered even in your toughest battles..
Lovely to see you here too...hopefully we can get some nice discussions going...lol
I was also waiting to see the scene when Zor finds out and Kanwaljeet's acting
...the LOOK in his eyes...not a single word but that LOOK...the pain in those expressions...that heartbreak for the daughter that is his world...so beautifully done.
I also wonder if I feel these scenes more emotionally now cuz of the physical distance from my parents, my father too...I couldn't hold back the tears in the father-daughter scene when tells her to come home...Kanwaljeet is SUCH a brilliantly natural actor...and the father-daughter bond is so poignantly shown...I feel a deep connect...I totally agree that it's hard to explain...but I was totally pulled into the scene and couldn't help but cry either cuz it made me badly miss my father, my brothers too...and it's very hard to explain as you move on to new phases in life or if you go through crisis in your own life that you don't want to burden your parents with...this scene captured all those emotions...Shraddha's pain and inability to face her father, not wanting to shatter him...and his UNDERSTANDING in that moment...just telling her simply to talk to him...and then come home...
I also love Zor's scenes with Kittu...the tenderness and loving way in which he tells her she is his daughter...and the way Kittu dotes on him too.
Truly veteran actors make a world of a difference...like the silent understanding you pointed out when Zor says Shraddha will stay in their room...or even the way he tells his other DIL that Shraddha is not a guest...and Supriya ji toh...words can't do her justice...she is the ultimate loving mother figure on TV...you feel the warmth of her presence so strongly through the screen...and just the way simple moments are woven in like her talking with Kittu about a woman being pulled from both sides vis a vis her in-laws and her parents...and her whole life goes in this only...such a simply said thing but it strikes a chord.
DJs do come up with good concepts from time to time and I like the one they've picked in this show vis a vis a single mother and the way her family supports her...I hope the sense of naturalness and poignancy continues in the show...the lack of gaudy makeup and gaudy characters so far is refreshing...even Kittu isn't the typical decked up bhabhi...I love Amrit's styling too...not the typical saas...only minor irritants are Zor's other son and DIL...but let's see how the story picks up in the coming weeks with Shraddha being back in the Shergill house.
P.S. Forgot to mention...the director is one of the classiest directors on TV from whatever I've seen of his work...his sense of depth vis a vis showing the emotions of the characters in a scene is amazing...his body of work includes Balika Vadhu, Gulaal and Ek Chaabi hai pados mein.
Zama Habib is a nice writer as well...liked his work in SGP
