    Is anyone watching Sanjay Leela Bhansali's SaraswatiChandra serial on starplus.
    I find t very similar to Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Makes me think, is this story close to his personal life? wonder if he had this love-anger-ego-misunderstanding relationship between him and his GF??

    saraswatichandra is a famous gujrati novel.

    it is written very beautifully, it took the author 10 years to complete it, it is in 14 parts.

    unfortunately bhansali has ruined it!! he tried to make it modern, while keeping the earthy feel, which has backfired.
    it confuses the audience...why would a girl, who can operate a computer, run around in a ghagra choli at home?

    nevertheless, it is very much like HDDCS, like the typical four doted tattoo below kumud's neck is similar to that of aish's in the movie.

    the whole treatment of the serial is very poor. it is a flop.

    had bhansali kept the original rural backdrop, and made it a period serial, it would have been a masterpiece just like the novel.

    i dint like the actors playing the lead roles. Jennifer keeps holding her breath all the time for no reason. It is annoying. :rantAnd this saraswatichandra guy is blank with no expressions. :spin dint they get any better guy while auditioning? :hide:

    Kumud's clothes are also not good. Ghagra which shows her entire body. Transperant duppata!! What did Bhansali want to prove, i just dont get it :bonk

    Ofcourse Bhansali was the director of HDDCS. So most of the settings/costumes/makeup etc is same as HDDCS.

    So far also it was not interesting the story. I expected lots more but this show is :thumbsdown

    Ah, Kumud does try to prove glamarous but is not. Hero was good in Nach baliye not in this serial. Just to make a moment happen between these two, I feel the scenes very artificial.

    Some characters are really annoying.

    The singing brother- who has no work except singing songs and his wife dressed up all pretty even though husband is one waste fellow.

    The aunty (dugba) - dont know what flashback she has but gives horrible expressions.

    Another aunt - khoti baat na bolu - is one extra waste character.

    Yash /kusum/kumari - Well grown up adults who get excited to fly kites as if that is the only excitement left on earth.

    Kumud's dad - Trying to get fake gujrati accent and overacting with false tears.

    Hero - Fully shaved with 'chaka-chak' jeans even though he sleeps outside Ila ben's house doing the 'prayaschit'. I hope Ila ben does not fall for this 'chikna' guy instead of Kumud.

    ( I dont remember but this Ila ben did some funny character in some serial, can anyone remember?)

    Monica bedi - Sitting miles away in UAE, she gives expressions which no one can see in Ratnanagari.

    Sister- Just one vamp character with no added value.

    Overall, I only like Kumud's mom but not her wearing flowers everyday.

    I think i saw her in "Sasural Genda Phool", where Suhana and Ishaan come to mumbai they stay in her house.

    This is so true. Flowers everyday that too fresh...:rant

    yeah thats so true Jenny keeps holding her breath.. transparent duppata..yet when that is being pulled she feels shy as if that duppata is covering her any better. Bhansali should read our comments and take some measures.. You ladies agree??

    Yes Bhansali should read reviews from IL and make changes accordingly if he wants his serial to survive.

    Jenny is awful as the heroine. To say 1 dialogue she keeps holding her breath and dragging it. awful :drowning

    Monica Bedi looks lot better. Except for her bitchy expressions/attitude like a vamp that her character requires, she is so well shaped and acting well. Amazed to see her :thumbsup

    This serial is really really boring.:hide:
