@Sandhya don't be surprised if they show Ganga poisoning has happened by the mass manufacture of nag vish in Dr Rao's factoryLOLLOLLOL. Remember he had taken Maya's blood sample in the pretext of finding an antidote.
Coming to how the dand took the poison well sab Maya hai ROFLROFL. I had put in Arshics thread from this week MK has become Bollywood mirch masala. Watch it, but don't think. Don't feel script has anything more for thinking people

.Hi...I have a very poor memory shyamala...but I think ( most probably) once when first time charles grand dad and Balivesh met in DM's office first time and later when Balivesh complained to Greyson abt Charles grand dad then Greyson who was in Poland had seen him and laughed and said that Rao is his man..(Greyson was with his secretary I think).Infact I remember this remark of Greyson only becoz I have been very surprised to see this goody goody Rao..I think it was made clear in the begining that Rao was after amrit..
anyway thanks for pm..Wonderful analysis Shymala..

And here Rudra can do lumos with his huge wand that is  powerful  enough  to  cleanse the  Ganges.

Thanks a lot for such supportive comments, but by now my muse is beginning to run dry as far as  Mahakumbh is concerned. I have been bemoaning the mess it has become, on your last 2 threads, and I shall not repeat any of that here. 

Shruthi's gallant defence notwithstanding, plus Shubha's support for that, I personally feel that the promise of the serial has been very largely belied. I am not inclined to cut Arvind Babbal any slack, and I am not hopeful of a neat wrap up either. There is just too much to be tied up and they do not have the time.

And to cap it all,  now they are introducing not just another sadhu baba  for the 'Veshes, but one more naga guru,  a Guru Emeritus with an even longer forked tongue!  I begin to think Babbal either has a forked tongue fetish, or he sees too many C grade horror films. Ugh..Angry

First of all the title is great, and really befitting the week that was. 

And all points raised by you are absolutely on dot. 

It's as if, the writers forget their own words and take off on different tangents 

Your take on rudras visit to the Vishkendra clearly shows up the weak script with huge loopholes

This kind of juvenile writing - the forked tongue, and the way that naga kept brandishing it around

Rudras 5 min 56 sec of reeling and falling only to get cured by the teen boond khoon 

The non scary pasty Rao, with slurred speech and unclear diction 

The inane and blank garudas and contortionist shiva 

All made for a show that seems to have lost its way 

The only highlight were the dansh bhairavi scenes 


You have raised a very interesting turn in the story

Rudra Leela vivah, and Maya Kya anth - I don't know, My expectations from the writers are an all time low

I agree with that. Arijit. She is not just consistent, she is superb in both conception and execution.

Also, Rudra is improving steadily. I was delighted when he landed Shivanand a juicy punch.

My dear Shubha,

I am very pleased that you liked this one too. My muse is drying out as far as Mahakumbh is concerned, and so is my readership, so much so that I begin to wonder if these long post facto analyses are at all worth it.  Given this, you are  a morale booster, and I shall try and stick it out till the end.

I think Utkarsh fell out with the rest on the destruction of Shivanand as a character. That began a month or so ago, and he responded to my message saying that had become pessimistic for a month now, but had hung in there and done his  best. Whatever the truth of that - and it must have been a serious matter for him to leave with nearly 3/4ths of the duration of the show finished -  the  fact is that the Mahakumbh script,which never lived up to either its potential or the hype surrounding its launch, is now in parlous straits.

I admire your unquenchable optimism about the serial, something  you share with Shruthi, but I am thoroughly disillusioned  by now. The latest Guru Emeritus of the nagas,   with a forked tongue that ought to qualify for the Guinness Book of World RecordsWink, was the last straw. It just goes to show that they have by now NO idea what to do or show, adn are flailing around at random.

On the plus side, apart from the unfailing excellence of MB, Dansh is good most of the time, and Rudra has been improving dramatically of late. I am looking forward to his landing Shivanand a juicy left hook on Monday. These days, Shivanand seems even worse than Dansh, and to me the plunge in his character is unbelievable and disgusting.

As  for your @blue, I am of the same mind as you on this, as you would have seen from the post.

Thank you Shyamala for putting our thoughts into such well-articulated passages...

You have hit all the nails on their heads, and these are multiplying like rabbits as well...
What a sad letdown. I now watch for the actors sake and inspite of the writers!! Wonder what led to Utkarsh's exit. We can set our expectations appropriately now..

About Rudr's vish odyssey it was wholly pointless was it not? If his purpose was to save Maya then even that was an abysmal failure! For after Leela cured him, he had no vish left in him! ! Why does the writer have to dish out such inane stuff?  Bah

Shymaladi precap looked more interesting, Rudra finally forced to fight his father. Symbolically it is the direct fight of head vs heart, logic vs conscience. I simply loved it.
This was what Bairavi knew will happen. That is why she was beating up Shiva. She knew he might be capable of spreading the fear pshycosis and Rudra will be forced to fight his own father in the line of duty.
If Rudra had allowed her to do what she was doing, he wouldn't have faced with the conflicting choice of fighting his father.
One more message. If you don't take harsh steps to correct your kith or kin due to the love you have for them, day wont be far when you have fight with them for your own rights.
Also I don't think UN's point of contention would have been Shiva. That looks logical only to me. I guess his contention would have been more about Maya-Leela chakkar. Because that track is very very poor yet, not convincing. Rudra going to Vish Kendra, Maya's antics. I don't know for me that love story has been the most unconvincing and poorly written script part.

My dear Purnima,

I see that fatigue is setting in all around - writer's fatigue on my side, readers' fatigue, and worst of all, scripting fatigue in the Mahakumbh team. Nothing else  can explain the  multiplicity of  holes in the script.

Some of them, like the Mississippi, Colorado, Nile and Ganga statement by Rao, are very serious and knock the stuffing out of the story as narrated to us so far. They might have started out with an 80% locked script, but it has long been unlocked, with highly undesirable results.Angry

This past week was even stranger: part Mahadev instead of Mahakumbh,  when Rudra's Garuda  Pramukh wand (or sword, as MB calls it) dispels the halahal  twice over, and part like a C grade  horror flick, as when the latest addition to the tribe of naga gurus  sticks out a forked tongue that would surely qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records! Ugh...Angry

The good things are that MB is consistently excellent, Dansh is mostly tolerable, and Rudra has been  improving dramatically this week. I am waiting to see him sock Shivanand one good and proper on Monday!

That definite does not seem to be the case...the story makes no sense...the characters are inconsistent, the plot is full of holes... sigh...
