Kuch Toh Log Kahenge: A Poor Copy of Dhoop Kinare

When promos for the new serial Kuch Toh Log Kahenge
on Sony TV were being shown, I had a feeling that it would be based on Dhoop Kinare. I was really excited to see our own Indian version of Dhoop Kinare. The intial episodes of Kuch Toh Log Kahenge were xerox copy of Dhoop kinare. Even the heroin's friend's name is same ( Anjie). But I am sadly disappointed. The lead actors Mohnish Behal ( Dr. Ashutosh) and Kritika Kamra(Dr.Nidihi) are no match to Rahat Kazmi and Marina Khan who played Dr. Ahmar Ansari and Dr. Zoya respectively in the original drama.
Mohnish Behal is unable to deliver the understated charm that came naturally to Rahat Kazmi. So is the case with Kritika Kamra. She has played bubbly and chirpy girl in her previous serials on star plus. But the innocence and stubbornness of Dr. Zoya Ali Khan is lacking in her. May be the comparison if unfair. But one can't help it. Dhoop Kinare is a classic and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge is a futile attempt to recreate it.

This serial has a very good storyline (Because its an adaptation of a Pakistani play) and its very nice to watch the lead pair. However its ridiculous how these serials drag on and on and on.. My suspicion was confirmed in this article by Chandan who think it will run for 3 years. PLEASE GUYS GIVE US A BREAK!! Its insane for a serial to be stretched and stretched that the audience lose interest and no long want to watch it. Its like slow death.

I understand theres competition and everybody is after TRP's, but come up with a nice story and finish it up quickly. You can then move on to other better stories. Theres no dearth of good writers in the country.

For me personally and im sure this is the case with millions of others, I will stop watching it after 6 months on air. Even with 6 months, thats about 240 episodes. Thats enough to sustain the audience interest and tell a meaningful story.

I REALLY REALLY HOPE THE PRODUCERS WILL NOT FOLLOW EKTA KAPOORS LEAD and extend this serial like Kyunki.. which lasted many many years. Fingers crossed for good content on TV
