We guess the title explains a lot about what we want to express! From some unknown and weird reasons, every other character in every other show of Star Plus, is passing through same symptoms!
Didn’t get what we said? Read On.
Recently, Raman Bhalla in Ye Hai Mohabbatein is getting slowly poisoned by his sister who is giving him a dose of expired medicines.
So Bhalla sahab fell down due to an overdose of the pills added with some stress to the guy and the poor man fell down in front of his family with everyone freaking out seeing him fainting.
Cut to Ishqbaaz, Shivaay Singh Oberoi is also poisoned, and the guy amidst family celebrations, falls down! And of course his brothers, sisters in law and his wife loses it seeing him like that!
And don’t even ask us about the miraculous cure he had! We were flabbergasted seeing him treated in a way as if he had an asthma attack instead of getting poisoned.
In Naamkarann, Neil supposedly was getting buried alive by Vidyut’s men but Avni appears there at the right time to save the guy!
Cut to Ishqbaaz again, somehow on the same day, Anika too is kidnapped by Veer’s wife Komal and is happened to be buried alive!
But thank God again, that Shivaay came at the right time and saved his wife!
The magical tear drops that saves you from life threatening conditions are also not exclusive for any show. It’s shown in Ishqbaaz as well as Chandra Nandni!
Then you have these common revamped but once upon a time evil kind of in-laws too in shows like – Ishqbaaz, Naamkarann and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai wherein Pinky, Shweta and Daadi are shown to be quite insecure about losing their raja bete to their loving wives! Pinky (Ishqbaaz) and Shweta (Naamkarann) actually take away the cake here for being exceptionally evil and then later becoming ‘good’ with time.
If Veer is obsessed with Anika in Ishqbaaz then you have Vidyut in Naamkarann too who is consumed with Avni. Both these bad fellows are after the life of our poor heroes, Shivaay and Neil. Several murder attempts and somehow still they are alive, all thanks to the miraculous turnarounds in the story.
And also not to forget this ‘acting acting’ theory between the leads. You see there’s a new trend of seeing these husbands and wives of Star Plus pretending to fight with each other to beat their villains and later on are showed in their perfect lovey dovey avatar! They love secretly and fight openly.
But even this sort of romance isn’t exclusive on Star Plus for anyone! You had Neil-Avni doing that in Naamkarann, you had Shivaay-Anika doing that in Ishqbaaz and we also saw Chandra and Nandni doing that in Chandra Nandni before! We aren’t really sure if Chandra Gupta Maurya had all the time in the world to pretend to dislike his one wife to his other queen though! That’s a different matter altogether.
Talking about abuse of bahus – That also happen almost on quite common grounds on Star Plus.
Anika has no ‘naam-khoon-khaandaan‘. So Pinky had a way with that! (Ishqbaaz)
Avni is her parents’ ‘illegitimate’ child. So Shweta had a way with that! (Naamkarann)
Naira spent her entire teenage life away from home – So Daadi had a way with that assuming all sorts of adultery ideas about her. She had her way too! (Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai)
All the three ladies were thrown out of the house by their respective mothers in law or grand mother in law using different ways of course!
But sadly, none of the three ladies could fathom why their raja bete were not bothered with the surname, legitimacy or past of their wives!
And here you go – All three blasted on their mother and grandmother like never before!
As much as it were entertaining to watch Shivaay, Neil and Kartik stand up for their respective wives, isn’t it too repetitive for someone who is watching all the three shows?
Yeah yeah, we know fans of these shows fight with each other on social media and hate the other shows and always shout about their respective favourite show being superior to the other, but ask someone who watches all of them – For the common viewers, we are shown NOTHING different!
Yes, execution of one might be better than the other but on the ground level, what’s different in the overall plot?
Dear Star Plus – Why do you think the viewer of your one show doesn’t watch the other?!
