Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down - A weekly column in our News Hub - Telly Buzz that will give the latest twists and turns in the serials brought about to capture its' audience. A thumbs up is where the audience likes the track and a thumbs down is where it fails to meet the expectations. So watch out every week to see Aye and Naye By the Crazy Creatives.
Thumbs Up
Thumbs Up Saregamapa Challenge 2007: Salman Khan rocked on this show this week with some good singing, dancing, stripping etc. For a change, this week participants enjoyed but the mentors suffered as Salman played the role of Big Bully, with Himesh bearing the brunt the most. Favorite contestant Mauli back with the bang and Aneek went the Salman way i.e. bare body look.

Thumbs Up Boogie Woogie: This week the celebrity guests were none other than the adorable kids from Tara Rum Pum Pum and other movies. It was a total dhamakedaar weekend with “chote ustaads” showcasing their talents. Aha!! didn’t you all want to pinch their lovely cheeks?

Thumbs Up Khawaish: Ekta’s new serial is gearing all the interest as it is shot beautifully in Urdu dialect and the nook-jhhok between Afreen (beautiful name) and Kabir. This serial promises to steer Sony channel’s fate which  otherwise is lined up with some boring daily soaps.

Thumbs Up Kasamh Se: All the enemy’s of Walia House is finally getting what they deserve—Bani’s wrath. Pia the black sheep, Jigyasa the tormentor and Karuna the evil, are all fighting amongst each other with Bani I mean Durga having the last laugh. Well, its Jaise Karni waise Bharni. But our hearts go off to Mr. Walia for silently bearing all the insults.

Thumbs Up Sollah Singar: Mother is reciprocating what the daughter has done for her i.e. getting her widow daughter Shagun re-marry. We know re-marrying is now very common, but its still an issue in a stringent Hindu holy place like Varanasi. Inspite of some brilliant acting and strong performances by all the characters, this serial somehow does not enjoy high viewership. Is it the Sahara effect?



Thumbs Down
Thumbs Down Kasturi: Firstly, they separated two loving hearts as Kasturi suddenly realized her family values and prestige. Now, once she is married to Mr. 'Honest' Raunak, some unknown woman warned about the evil intentions of her husband. Now we will see three unhappy people, living in the same house, with flashbacks of Kasturi-Robbie. How predictable, isn’t it?

Thumbs Down Kasauti Zindigi Ki: This serial is heading no where as the viewer watches the same thing time and again, but with new characters. P2 and Saksham is trying to create the same magic as Prerna-Anurag. Anurag and Prerna hate each other, but at a same time cannot live without each other as usual. Gosh! We have seen this Nth number of time…

Thumbs Down Who Rehna Wali Mehlo Ki: The adarsh bahu will go on working like a slave to impress her in-laws but to no avail. Inspite of Soumya and Dadaji explaining it to Pari to teach them a lesson, Pari would obediently take all their curses and even work like a maid, while the maid of the house enjoys all day long. Pari, or rather Rajshri Productions, can you please tell me in which generation are you living? We want to see Aaj Ki Aaurat..

Thumbs Down Saathi Re: Prem, who once brought prem in Suman’s life, is all set to take the same 'prem' I mean love of her life, her husband Rajeev, away from her. Lover turned psychotic is now ruining Suman’s life and we are seeing the very predictable story once again.

Thumbs Down Ek Ladki Anjani Si: Well, yes this serial is still on air. So what if no one watches it.. So what if the same thing is repeated again… Before Anu wanted Nikhil to marry someone else when she heard about her illness, then Nikhil wanted Anu to settle with someone else when he learnt about his illness. Now, Nikhil is cured and wants Anu back but ofcourse there are new love interests who would not let this happen. Gosh.. I cant believe you are still reading it..
