WORDS RIDA .
YOU SPOKE MY MIND, IN FACT YOU SPOKE FOR US
Copy paste from Aditi's post "Where has the original show gone?" because I am lazy. Sorry
It was the story, crisp writing, well executed plot with proper pace and the imperfectly perfect flawed multi-layered grey characters of the show, which where intriguing and most importantly realistic which we could connect, forced me to take up this show. When hardly anyone knew about the existence of show.
All the characters had plots and back stories. There was a commendable set ups and proper build ups for each character and plot. It had a solid story which was always unpredictable. All episodes ended up on an edge which made us to speculate and analysis, most importantly which made us to anxiously wait for the next episode.
This was a show where either I love the characters or love to hate the characters. I was invested in all characters. Almost all the characters had a mystery element in it all and were easy to connect to them.
MaNan was the most consistent among the lot. But lately we find their scenes random and repetitive without substance or progression. Few scenes were silly and unnecessary. Any day quality above the quality. MaNan is the USP but a show can't solely run on them always, it takes away the essence. They are losing the freshness and charm somewhere down the line because of script, it is solely PaNi's chemistry that sell few scenes.
I have watched earlier episodes umpteen times. Nowadays I don't feel like going for a second watch that itself say a lot. Earlier there wherein any scene which I would skip. Nowadays if I go for a second see I end up killing the FF bottom. Now what does that say? we can't connect either with story, plot or the characters. Sad but the truth.
We understand growth and look for it but butchering of character, taking away the basis traits of the character for the sole purpose of selling a plot is never justifiable.
Unnecessary dragging of plots and show are bound to put off people. Stretching of the plot beyond a point made the track boring and has stolen its essence. Pacing of the story has been a legit issue.
Many potential tracks disappeared into thin air.
Few tracks weren't up to the mark and few were good in paper but execution fell flat.
Ky2 itself have set a benchmark for itself.It is known for simple story telling. It is known for its realistic and subtle approach of tracks and not dramatic.
Buck up Cvs you know your job. You still can get the grip back. You have gold in the forms of the characters. There are still open plot which are either untouched or not utilized to the optimum. Please get back on the track.
Please bounce back otherwise you will definitely lose those ardent fans following the show from day 1 who has a hand in making the show where it is now.
Though I have issues still I neither hate the show nor MaNan. The early excitement to tune in to the tv at 6:30 no longer exists.
Addition: You pinpointed individually all the pitfall in each track. Even I feel like rating on each track's issue (I may, don't know).
They should close all the open tracks. Just hope when they bring back the show to the right track original story, it won't be jaded or seem inconsistent or indifferent at this point. But I think it will be inevitable to an extent, purely depends on treatment, set up and build up should be strong. Execution has been an issue since a while.
And most importantly no more drag fest or making khichdi out of tracks.
They have to get back the grip on the story and their original style of storytelling simple, subtle and realistic. The scripting should be crisp and tight like the initial days.
Just hope Cvs open their eyes.

It was few weeks ago that I started losing my excitement to watch this show. But nevertheless, I watched just for the sake of it as it had become a sort of habit. I'd watch it and convince myself that the show will turn good next week. We'll have a better story next week. Well, next week became the week after, and then the week after that, and so on. I think you get my point. During this time period, my brother who sometimes watches the show with me, would start to laugh at this show and me and comment on how illogical and stupid this was. And I would instinctively defend it. I was then extremely protective of this show and could not accept anyone else calling it lame. So I would defend it everytime. When he asks, "Why is that girl always crying?" I would explain to him about her "faith in hope" and how she "disappointed ams" When he asks why the girl is still going to pandit's classes even though he clearly gives of bad vibes. I defended and told him that she was a 17 year old girl and was clueless about the big bad outside. So this said, we were watching Friday's episode, neither of us that interested, and my brother started commenting on the stupidity of the kidnap track. strangely, this time I couldn't think of a good excuse. I couldn't defend this show anymore. I just agreed, and said "yeah, it is stupid." And BAM. THAT WAS WHEN I KNEW... That something has changed between me and this show. The connect that I had initially is clearly missing. So where do I start...
Let me start where everyone starts. From the beginning. The first episodes.. showed a young girl capturing fireflies, caring fro her brother, talking about the fatal accident that killed her family. They talk about her father's pen. Her ambitions of becoming like her father. The first episodes showed a boy who thought the best thing to him was his best friend, the boy who ran as he got the call to calm his buddy down. The boy who was part of a bond between 3 children: the band of brothers.
This show was about a boy who feared society. His story was his fight for acceptance. And the boy who fought for his rights as well as love from his mother.
It was a story about a nave girl who believed everything in her world was her boyfriend and the latest in' clothes. It was the growth of her to form an identity of her own, and to get over her insecurities and gain maturity.
It was a story about a boy who lacked self-confidence. He was hiding behind his best friends shadow, and haunted by his strange illness. He was a boy who would not open his mouth, yet spoke through his eyes. He was a boy who knew this best friend inside out, and was always there to help.
It was a story of a broken girl trying to move on. It was her struggle with drug abuse as she tries to maintain a bad girl image on the outside, but slowly breaking in the inside .
It was the story of a nave and innocent village belle entering a new city. A girl who did not know how cruel the world could be. Ti was her growing, her learning from her experiences
It was the story of a dark hero with very grey shades. It was the story of a bad boy with a mysterious past. And it was the sotry of him seeking vengeance to those inolved, yet still remaining humane to everyone outside.
It was a journey of 8 individuals. It was a story of growth. When I first saw this show, I saw struggles of acceptance, the feeling of togetherness, and the understanding of what is right and wrong. It was a tale people connected through of friendship, love, revenge, happiness, sadness, excitement, and most of all, MUSIC.
After the 100th episode or so, the above things have been in pause mode it seems. Everything seems to be revolving around Manan these days. And hey, I love manan as much as the girl-next-door, but please. Manan ARE NOT THE SHOW. They are simply a part of the show, which further enhances the viewers to watch the show. I admit post valentines, things were exciting uptil a point. The hope vs hate tally was initially very nice. But the repetition of that (and the making showing random shit like merger and bloody campaing) diluted the effect and left me getting annoyed whenever that word came up. Also, it seems that the writers were so infested on making nandhini want manik and her to sing together in FC that they actually lost track of WHY they should sing in the first place. The whole point of them singing together was nandhini believed that if they sang together, manik will accept her. Okay, got that. But then, Manik accepted her and forgave her WAY before the fusion concert. By the time FC finally came around (after all that dragging and dragging) Manan were pretty much secured, so it's a bit ambiguous as to why she was still dersperate for manik to be the one singing with her instead of dhruv. Really, what difference does that make, as they are going to be simply singing, and Manik had already forgiven her so I never really understood the point... anyway, moving on.
It was a youth show meant not only for pure entertainment but to change ideologies and thinking styles of people. and I have to give an applause for the way they handled Cabir's coming out and Navya's premarital sex. Unfortunately, although the initial stages of these tracks were EXCELLENT, they makers have failed to progress it further. What the heck are they doing with the Marriage and Cabir's mom and Navya's mom and Sunny sharma and all that shit!!!! Furthermore, what happened to nandhini's passion, her dream? Why does she not spend some time improving her musical career. Why did dthe writers make it seems as if she needs manik all the time? What happened to rishab/dhruv and his attacks. Why doesn't nandhini ever share the radioactivity theory to Manik. Is she THAT preoccupied with her love life to not share this crucial information? Sigh. Also are fab 5 just gogn to accept dhruv now. No questions asked, no hard feeling? AFTER ALL THAT HE DID, they are just going to brush it under the carpet? Alya is the only one actually telling him that she will not forgive him that easily. They others jut don't seem to care about the things he did and are welcoming him with open arms... (one more thing. Nyonika is nly good when she appears once in a blue moon. Lately she's constantly hovering around making schemes with the pandit. It makes wonder does the owner of a business empire have nothing better to do than cook up ridiculous schemes on how to ruin a girl's and her own son's life.)
Next Cameos. Cameos are exactly what they should be. Cameos. They are meant to enhance and develop the main characters. To bring out their flaws, and make the main character and plot grow. I this show, all the cameos ALWAYS linger longer than needed. The only cameo that I really liked was rose. No, not just because she was funy, but because she brought out the insecurities in cabir and showed the views the extremes of him fears. He was so afraid that he got himself a fake girlfriend in hopes that she will help hide his sexuality. Another good cameo was raghav. They showed him as the perfect teacher who built strong foundations for Fab 5 and NH3 for their musical careers. He established strictness and discipline, yet he did not go overboard. He was non-biased when in came to music. Inside the college he may have been a perfect teacher, but outside he still stuggled with society. He did not stand by cabir when he most needed him. His presence made cabir both weaker and stronger. He was weaker because raghav kept discouraging their relationship., yet stronger because cabir was finally learning to understand the reality of his situation. The other cameos.. well what did they do to the story/character/plot? Nothing. The answer is nothing. Lets talk about soha. Soha was very very random, and totally unesaccary. She made nandini look like a creepy jealous girlfriend who stalked her boyfriend everywhere, even to a farm house. She was very unrealistic with the whole burnign the storeroom' thing, but then again she was an actual psycho. Abhimanyu was good with nandhini, but damn.. he came and ruined mukti for me. I seriously used to like mukti back then, but bleh. This guy ruined her. Pandit... lets not even go there shall we. I don't know what this new guy has in store, but hopefully it would be something USEFUL.
There is still a lot to say, but I'd rather not weigh you down with my thoughts. This post turned out to be WAY longer than I wanted it to be, so apologies for that. I Just wanted to share my thoughts on this show somewhere. As I said, this is not a rant. Instead this is a list of things that cvs should look to improve in the coming episodes. Peace
