Iss Pyaar Ko.....Alvida Kahoon......?


Well, Star Plus' No 1. ranker series 'Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon' to go off air this week. The male protagonist, Barun Sobti has quit for personal reasons. The channel thought it better to wrap up rather than replace, considering his popularity. A first of sorts, I gather. 

The daughter who absolutely adored Arnav Singh Raizada and Khushi Kumari Gupta for their non stop banter, is feeling bad for them. Though, off late, we'd given up on the series as it wasn't going nowhere, post the marriage. However, she was real happy that she could meet them earlier this year, as a Valentine's Gift from Mommy dearest. She even made a card for all of them that Barun so sweetly read and kept. 

Unlike his on screen avataar, Barun was the prankster on the set. Khushi, poor girl was having a bad throat, yet was smiling and looking pretty. The wedding sequence was being shot. Payal and Aakash, pretty much the dedicated parallel leads, were gracious to talk to. Anjali who I met post a very long hiatus, pretty as ever. Shyam who we did not like in reel life but in real, quite the gentleman. Nanhe was just the cute boy next door. Mami was an absolute delight to talk with, in impeccable English, believe it or not. Mamaji, the dear friend who organised this outing for the princess. Nani who I'd seen as a child, was was a delight to meet after so many years. 













So goodbye to ASR who will now just be another hunk the daughter called the dibs on :)

Awww....... she looks so happy! And I adore the duo too - there is an element of humour which is otherwise lacking in soaps - sad to see it go :-(

Oh Yeah Nirvana, she was! It was her Valentine's gift...albeit a tad bit delayed to co-ordinate with the shoot dates :)

Reflections, thanks for dropping by. I could correct an error in the widget script because of your comment :)

Thanks for the good news.

These serials with their endless cycles of suspicious, primary-colored, doubt-ridden, scheming characters who are always dressed to the hilt, even in their bedrooms, and who cast no shadows ever, even in their bedrooms, are a part of the great conspiracy to ensure that no matter how much we progress, we still remain in the dark ages. If my opinion offends you, I couldn't be happier! :)

Junior will have to find other things that will make her beam with happiness, I guess. Till then she can stew in her anger at this comment. I just hope it is not another similar show.

How I miss life-affirming and entertaining shows like Nukkad, Karamchand, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, Civilization with Kenneth Clark, Bharat Ek Khoj, Picket Fences, and Boston Legal. They actually helped broaden your horizon instead of getting sucked into relationship struggles of imaginary characters inhabiting an unreal social world.

In all fairness, the male lead (Arnav) is attractive as a male lead, in spite of his pink lips and difficulty opening his jaws to speak.

Ha ha ha Shubho.....don't worry, the daughter just calls the dibs. We couldn't care for the story. The guy was cute, all said and done. And well it wasn't that devious as half the nonsense.

We were the lucky ones to have good TV, but bad cinema. Today the tables have turned!
