Can “Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke” impress the audience?

The moment we talk about cousins we all go back in time and recollect loads of childhood memories. Zee TV too is all set to bring back this unique feeling of spending time with cousins with their new show – Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke. You might very well remember how fearless, confused, love struck, hopeful, elated, curious, nervous we felt at that age? Even after years we can never forget those days when we thought that every thing was possible and we could get away with almost everything. Zee Tv has just done the same with Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, a new show that promises to take you on that journey. You might have seen the promos which look quiet fresh and full of so called masti that we used to have when cousins were around. iDubba is on a journey to find out more about the show and what to expect from this new show. 

The show is produced by Shakuntalam Films, who earlier came up with ace shows as Na Aana Is Desh Laado and Sapno Se Bhare Naina.

The story is based on the life of two cousins named Rachna and Gunjan. As expected one is a simple and introvert girl (Rachna), while the other is a playful and fun-loving girl (Gunjan). Soon there is a twist in the plot and due to some issues, Gunjan is a smart 16- year- old girl who lives in Mumbai and shares a wonderful relationship with her mother Sneha. As fate would have it, Gunjan’s life falls apart when her mother passes away and her father sends her to her maasi’s (mother’s sister) place in Varanasi so that she’s well taken care of. Gunjan moves to Varanasi to stay with her maasi, Shail (enacted by Vaishnavi Mcdonald) and here, begins the story of Gunjan and Rachna. Interesting? Predictable?   

Lets try to find out more about the 2 lead characters. Rupal Tyagi is playing the bubbly role of Gunjan. She was seen in serials like Chhoti Si Zindagi and Hamari Betiyoon Ka Vivaah. Where as Mahima Makwana is playing the role of the introvert Rachna and was seen in Sawaare Sabke SapnePreeto serial earlier. Well the show has already started airing on Zee TV from 21 May 2012 and as expected has replaced the show Choti Bahu 2. Based on the first few episodes and the promos there is surely an attempt to make the show look youthful and appealing. With such a story line its a must to show the contrast between the two girls, both by their looks & nature. As one is a  typical big city girl who is in tune with the latest trends in clothes, while the other comes from a conservative family in Varanasi with a strict father. So can Zee impress the audience with this new attempt?  

Do let us know your views and feedback about this new show. Also do set in a reminder regarding this show on our iDubba App, so that you don’t miss the show.

Happy Viewing.


TV ‘shows’ must go on!!!

Ever wondered, how many TV shows have shut in past 2 months? Let’s put some light on it and see who replaced who!

Off Air Shows Replaced By
Maryada (Star Plus)
Sasural Genda Phool (Star Plus) Ek Dusre Se Karte Hain Pyar Hum
I Love My India (Sab TV) Bhai, Bhaiyya aur Brother
Ram Milaye Jodi (Zee TV) Phir Subah Hogi
Choti Bahu (Zee TV) Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke
Havan (Colors) Kairi – Rishta Khatta Meetha
Laado (Colors) Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha
Zindagi Kahe.. Smile Please (Life Ok) Aasman Se Aage
Meri Maa (Life Ok) Amrit Manthan

Above all shows ended with very low ratings, except Sasural Genda Phool. But Sasural Genda Phool team along with Star team felt it’s good to end up a show on a high note rather than unnecessarily dragging it. But, one just cannot blame ratings for the same. There are a lot of other issues to be dealt with while making a TV show. And to shut it, is a big decision for channel as well as the producers. Soaps are such, one track doesn’t work and the story is changed. After a while, the original plot or the crux of the show is lost. This has been witnessed in a lot of shows. And that could be one of the major reasons for them to shut. Moreover, creatives can’t experiment a lot these days as they all have to work with lot of limitations.

Also, as Imagine TV shut, its all 5 shows shut too! 14 shows being shut in a span of 2 months and a few new ones have already replaced them. So, what happens next? A few new ones are in pipeline which will be launched post IPL; such as, Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, Indian Idol and post that KBC on Sony TV. Also, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’s next season is around the corner, but this time on Colors.

There are rumors about Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya (Star Plus) and Shubh Vivah on (Sony) soon to go off air. Nothing has been official about it, but there have been talks about it. As they say, there is no smoke without fire. So, which shows will replace them? Will the new shows be able to garner the same ratings for the channel or prove to be otherwise?

My question for you all is –

What kind of shows you’d like to watch? What kind of quality would you prefer? Do you want any sequels? If, yes, which ones?

Till then, do enjoy watching your own favorite shows with their own twists and tadkas in it! 🙂
