Of Drama in Switzerland
Okay, so the much awaited Switzerland track is on. And to be honest, I don't even know what I expected. That doesn't mean I enjoyed what was shown, just because there were no expectations.
The two things I liked were Kokila trying to blatantly to bring Gopi and Aham together, and two, the beautiful locales!
I didn't get the whole fuss about the damned jeans. Yes, the Modi bahus cannot wear jeans, but the girl is on her freaking honeymoon!!
And I didn't know that I actually had it in me to feel sorry for Rashi when Kokila "punished" her when she said Rashi will sit inside the hotel and not go outside!!!
And for what, for brainwashing Gopi to not bring the sweater?!
I usually love Koki's character, but she made no sense to me today at all!!!
Oh and the constant, "Aham Dikra" was kind of wierd... once or twice was okay, but when she constantly said Aham Dikra, I was like whats up with her, then I remembered that's the way Kokila is - possessive of her kin - she does it with Gopi (Meri Gopi Vau, Gopi Vau this.. Gopi Vau that...) and obviously with Aham too!!
Jigar - Can I just say I feel sorry this dude?!
Where was Gopi's brain? She left it back home, kya?! I mean Rashi brainwashed her so easily, and she was like theek hai, I'll leave the sweaters back in the room!
And then the dream sequence - now this was obvious that it would be Gopi's dream!! I felt sorry for Gopi again, when at the end of the whole sequences, she looks wistfully at the sledge and Aham. ( Loved Kokila noting that!)
The entire dream sequence, I thought was wonderfully written - beautiful locales, and well written sequence. The choice of song.. well, not the most appropriate, but I love this song!!
The title track would have been a better choice or even something like Dekho Na
So did I like the dream sequence? N-O! Why? Read on...
Okay, so I know I am gonna have so many people here after me once I am done with this review, but, honestly, Nazim has never looked so "wooden" before!!
I think this dude has mastered the "being irritated with Gopi" look, that the romance, frankly falls flat!!
What hold me to SNS is that Aham and Gopi seems so impossible that I am intrigued how they will happen - and today, we did get a small glimpse of how they would be as a couple and I am disappointed!!
Somewhere, Nazim's expressions were off - the part where they are not in the snow, the lifting, twirling, almost kiss - he was intense, but I didn't see the love.
I hope this changes soon!!
To give credit to him - the expressions just after he handed Gopi the jacket, and the precap were great!
Okay, so how many of you are coming after me now?! Feel free to share your views regarding today's "dreamy" episode! Like, or No Like?!
