Twist in Tale: Aasman Se Aagey!

As viewers have already seen that there is no love lost between DC played by Apurva Agnihotri and Meenakshi played by Ojaswi Oberoi in Life OK’s‘Aasman Se Aage’, produced by Sagar Arts 72 Degree North.
Now it seems that the show is set to further raise the level of fun and excitement soon. DC, who never misses any opportunity to show Meenakshi in a bad light, will once again enter into a rift with her. It so happens that after the striptease act performed by Akshat in the round, DC will ask Meenakshi to perform an item number, landing her in a fix.
On refusal by Meenakshi for performing the act on moral grounds, DC goes ahead and supports her competitor Karishma. These will lead in creating differences in both their relationship. Will Meenakshi be able to overcome this situation? 
This and more only on Life OK’s ‘Aasman Se Aage’.

Men – In Black, White and Gray!

No, we are not talking about Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in “Men In Black 3”, although they are fighting to save the world, my mention here is the “Men” in the current show “Phir Subah Hogi”.
What an interesting array of colors! Every human is bestowed with the richness of these colors, except that one dominates the other two shades in all of us. The men in “Phir Subah Hogi” are not spared either.
The men in this show are more dynamic than women and fascinate me to no end; no pun intended. Yes, granted the show is all about women rebelling against abusive traditions and customs, but the men are the main instigators of these rituals and customs. Men are the only animals in the world to fear! Of course barring a few exceptions…maybe.
All men are not slimy warthogs.  Some men are silly giraffes, some woebegone puppies, and some insecure frogs.  But if one is not careful, those slimy warthogs can ruin it for all the others.  ~Cynthia Heimel~

Very well said, as we see these very slimy war…

The Invisible Crack Emerges

My last article reflected on how Viren has emerged as the perfect husband to Jeevika ,a perfect brother-in-law to Manvi and and perfect brother to Viren-in whole "The perfect man". Also I had put forth my views and fear as to Jeevika and Manvi's close sister bonding becoming a source of concern in Jeevika and Viren's relationship.Viren has always stood by Jeevika through her most trying phases.He has been exceptionally patient with her and her thoughts on Manvi. Off late with Manvi being diagnosed with cancer, the fear of Jeevika obsessively turning into a basket case , ( sorry for using that ) has come true. Jeevika has always been shown the mature and sensible sister of the two , but now is a  complete wreck(understandably) who is constantly keeping a check on Manvi and monitoring her every move. Don't get me wrong, it's great to have such a wonderful sister who is there always unconditionally but her paranoia concerning Manvi  is creating problems not only…

‘How I met your Mother’ returns with season 7 starting tomorrow @ 11.30 pm on Star World India

Missing Barney and his barneyisms? I sorely do and am thrilled my wait will soon come to an end. I have no idea when my enthusiasm to find Ted’s wife dulled and the need for a daily dose of Barney’s quirky one-liners and crafty pickup lines took over but whatever be the hook, you wouldn’t want to miss season 7 of ‘How I met your mother’ starting tomorrow @ 11.30 only on Star World India.
‘How I met your mother’ is an American sitcom about the everyday life of five friends – Ted, Marshall, Lily, Barney, and Robin - with the voice over of Ted Cosby from the year 2030 telling his son and daughter about how he met their mother. The narrative traces Ted and his friends’ journey from the year 2005 charting their romantic entanglements in a humorous vein. Marshall and Lily are Ted’s best friends from college who end up a married couple after long courtship in season two.
Robin enters the group as Ted’s love interest but their romantic relationship fizzles out and they remain friends though i…

Messengers of Love Welcome Mohan back into Meghas Life!!

I have always been a die hard romantic and moments that capture the walking in of love always have left me anticipating for more! Having watched the show for over a while, I have always enjoyed the subtle yet sweet Mohan and Megha romance blossom slowly yet steadily. Last night as I noticed Mohan corner Megha, though it was something that I felt came too early in their story ( well, they could have saved the moments for a more mutually consented confession) I also felt Mohan needed some answers. Lets not forget he is a man in love and his heart knows no logic at the moment.

He did his bit as a worthy reporter, but he also did what he did because he loves Megha. He wanted to see her happy but he also knew his happiness also somewhere is intertwined with hers. That is why when he was hurt he decided to leave as he knew he would not be able to take the pain of having her around and not having her at all as it would kill him!

But the moment she stopped him, his heart signaled h…

Twist in Tale: Amrit Manthan

Dramatic elements are going to be infused by the makers of ‘Amrit Manthan’ on Life OK in a filmi style. This will be seen in upcoming episodes and is done with an intention of drawing viewership.
The upcoming track of this show seems to have got some inspiration from Shor, a Manoj Kumar film, wherein the hero takes part in a cycling competition for the purpose of earning some bucks.
In this show too, Navin Bangu, who plays the role of Agam has taken the decision of participating in a cycling competition because he is in need of money for setting up his Dhaba.
After participating, he will cycle 3 days non-stop. Dimple Jhangiani, who plays the role of his wife, Nimrit, supports him throughout. Agam succeeds in winning this competition and these tough times will bring Nimrit and Agam, closer.

The Little Munchkins – Ansh, Payal and Palak

Children are great imitators. So give them something great to imitate.
Give them hugs, you get bountiful hugs back; shower them with love, compassionate they become; instill values and morals, good human beings they grow into; reprimand them with the right discipline, they know to differentiate right and wrong in life; give them plenty of kisses and blessing and you get kids confident in their parents’ love and support. Love and support that can only give the children the much needed courage and security to become successful as they grow.
Ansh, Payal and Palak – the three little munchkins stealing our hearts in the show “Punar Vivaah” are no exception.  They are sweet little toddlers who have a loving family, pampered to the hilt and their whims and fancies fulfilled.  Yet they come with insecurities, they miss the unconditional love from a mother or father; they miss that steady and comfortable blanket of security that only a father and mother together can give to a child. This the ten…

Madhubala---Parda Style se utth hi gaya!

Nautanki films---it’s all in your name. Kahaani fultu filmi hai boss! It was worth the wait. What a magnificent launch for the much awaited Madhubala- Ek Ishq Ek Junoon. The curtain raised and it unveiled a spectacular world on the other side where we got to see an enthralling casting sequence, magnificent sets and glimpses of a show which is adorned by perfect cast and excellent work behind the camera. Undoubtedly the premiere was grand and lived up to the hype surrounding the show- an Ooh la la episode. Hats off for this attempt of paying tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema on television where the viewers will get to witness what lies beyond the whims and fancies associated with stardom. 
When it’s a tribute to the world of glitz and glamour how can the serial be devoid of it? The one hour episode with just a short popcorn break made me forget that I was watching a serial and not a movie of the 70s.The opening scene reminded me of Gabbar Singh and his sidekicks from the movie Shola…
