Thanks Angie for your thoughts. Liked them. Now mine will be short compared to what you have written.
Actually I will be extremely worried if you start writing short thoughts...
So the things I liked regarding yesterday's episode. Some of the points I have already mentioned in the update thread.
1) Lakshman's anger and him wanting to teach Ravan a lesson. I had a big smile on my face seeig him angry. Now the real Laksman is back and I hope he stays like this. Actually now I want to see an argument between Urmila and Lakshman.
2) Also liked Ram protesting to Vishwamitra and his restrained anger.
3)Liked watching Sita's expressions and he apprehension. Also liked the exchange of glances between Sita and Ram. Felt very bad for Sita when Janka allowed Ravan to take part. Sita does not know that Janak knows that nothing wrong will happen. I also liked Sita running to the idol of Gauri to voice her fears and still being apprehensive regarding what is going to happen.
4) Liked Urmila telling Sita that even f Ravan manages to string the dhanush, she does not have to marry him.
5) Like Narad's background commentary
What I did not like...
The way they are projecting Ravan. He is too one dimensional for me and is irritating me. I also have this urge to hold his horns and shake his head.
Misti, thanks. I know you will be worried about my health if I start writing in your concise style.
Angie it is not only me who will be worried but I think quite a few in the CB crowd will also be.
This week, I was working on a project and person of incharge of that project asked us to send 4-5 bullet point about key conclusions from our respective areas. I ended up typing 3 pages (single spaced) even though it was still 5 bullets, while cursing him simultaneously for making me do all this work at the last minute when I am already busy writing a lengthy paper for the project. But afterwards it occured to me that more than likely he just wanted a half page of conclusions and I didn't have to write so much in detail. So let me guess you wrote almost half a page for each "bullet point"...
Coming back to Ramayan, I too had the same likes that you mentioned. I liked both Ram and Sita's reactions. But of course Lakshman was the star and Urmila approving glances were hilarious. I really liked Urmila's advise to Sita that it was swayamvar and she didn't have to marry a guy even if he breaks the dhanush. I like the way they are showing Urmila.
Urmila is turnng out to be such a delight.
I have always liked Naarad in Mahadev. His background commentary was hilarious.
I have always liked Narad and his ways regarding winding up people.
I have not seen episodes with Ram's family. So I don't know how they have showed Kakayi, Kaushalya and Bharat. But so far Raavan is the one that I don't like that at all. He was just too irritating with all that nonsense he was talking yesterday. I want to take off those horns altogether. They really need to improve Raavan.
Yes to all here.They need to improve Ravan. He is too one dimensional here and is being reduced to a carricature.I have nothing against the actor...it is the characterisation that needs to be improved.
