Maria, the answer to your first 3 points is that ST never wanted Balraj to be killed off..they had planned the heroine track with Balraj bec. this is what they showed..Madhu will bring his downfall..but the whole plot was changed bec. Mr. somebody had to be accommodated...We must thank ST , it was only bec. of him tht RK and Madhu got married...otherwise channel was insisting on changing the whole plot to suit Mr. favorite... it was only after his exit that the channel gave a freehand to ST, when they saw tht TRPs plummeted bec. of their poor decisions...it was ST's mistake that heroine track wasn't implemented properly...but there also i won't blame him completely, he was under pressure to get the TRPs going...they had to change the tracks every week and month bec. they never got the TRPs..their execution was poor...heroine track was never planned this way...that is entirely their fault..but now when the TRPs r showing some improvement and a track is acceptable to the fans, after probably RM's wedding, and they are working hard on it, the actors are not cooperating?
ST was busy with RR and MB was ignored...but tell me, who doesn't face this problem? When IPK started Geet was ignored and when QH was conceptualized, IPK was ignored..this is what I heard from their fans...It happened with Ekta too..does she create mind blowing soaps?
leads taking an off is a different issue..these questions will come to anybody's mind..why consequitive holidays ? have them spaced out...have them coordinated with your co stars...i am not guessing this, my sources are very reliable
the twitter !! She herself said tht Goa was a last minute decision..and this leave taking business wouldn't have blown out of proportion if she didn't bark on the fans on twitter..
Charu, I am sorry but I give credit where I think it's due. I understand that channel meddled a lot and also understand that it was because of ST that RishBala got married but this does not undo the fact that he has ruined the story in many ways also. I blame both channel and ST for ruining the show!
Okay... the channel wanted AM in the story... there were several ways to bring in a third angle... why do they have to go for the clunkiest and most idiotic storyline? Just to get back at channel? Just to make sure that AM does not stay for long?
Trust me... I was not even in the IF back then but I started to feel that whoever is writing deliberately making a fool of the third angle. He could have been made anything. They could have very well showed heroine track along with that third angle right?
There is nothing I believe a determined mind and the power of pen cannot do. But they kept on making the story more idiotic and the characterization of AM and for him , Madhu clunky! They subtly rescued RK's character by making him a couple of shades darker yet still keeping the essence of the character. Tell me, is RK their only responsibility? What about the rest of the characters?
I know many people won't agree with me on this but that's how I see this.
I will praise ST for creating RK but I will criticize him also for making such weak characters and keeping them underdeveloped. The writing team should be attentive to every character or at least all the major characters and not just one character!
He is freelancing for his own show. Writing parts that he is interested in and leaving the rest. So much biased he is.
And TRPs wouldn't have fallen if audience was given a good track to watch. The tracks that we have been given have all been clunky and stupid one way or the another ever since after the unwedding... we have had good episodes here and there... but no track as a whole made sense! As I said, there was no research needed to know why the show is not working.. the CVs should have watched their own damn show and they would have known why is it crap only!
About Balraj! Well, there was no need to kill him even if he wanted to accommodate AM.. he could have gotten him imprisoned and fake killed him or anything, he is toh very creative na... couldn't he think of something else? But they ended his character for good! That was not needed!
And just because other PHs do it, it doesn't give license ST to ignore his shows for the sake of his new shows! I don't care about other shows and other PHs... this is the only show I watch! I will call him unprofessional because he is acting like that only! If other PHs do that they are also unprofessional.. but I don't care about them.. as I said.. I only watch this show and only care for it! He tends to lose both interest and control over his storylines after a certain point of time.. one can see very clearly!
Oh and I won't believe that they are working hard on MEIEJ until I see it happening. I don't believe this man's words because he does not honor them! So, I will just wait and watch...
About DVD, yes it bothers me quite much that they took holidays as I said before, but they have been the only saving grace of the show for months!! Had CVs worked on any of the supporting characters they could have very well made a parallel track but they didn't!! DVD may have taken holidays but they never compromised on their performances and it was not because of their absence that the TRPs fell from 4+ to 1.8.. I am not a DDian or VDian but I will still think it's not much of their fault as it's the PH's! Also as Chakku said, VD got slogged so much before he was given the days off.
I won't comment on Lady VD... will just say we are on the same page on that!
