Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon: Did Vivian DSena’s return to the show, ruin it?

Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon: Did Vivian DSena’s return to the show, ruin it?
Colors Twitter

Everyone’s favourite hero is back on the show as a mentally challenged person, but does the new plot work for the show?

When the makers of Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon decided to take a 20 year leap and kill Rishab Kundra (Vivian DSena) and Madhubala Kundra (Drashti Dhami), they faced a lot of criticism, but gave into it. They decided to retain Drashti as Madhu and brought in Gunjan Utreja as Abhay Kapoor a new hero. We were just getting adjusted to them and suddenly the makers decided to bring back Vivian. While we were okay with the idea, somehow the current storyline is a little too concocted.

When Abhay met Madhu for the first time, he couldn’t think, eat or sleep ‘coz he was disturbed by the similarity between her face and RK’s wife. So why didn’t he face the same dilemma face when he saw a mentally challenged Raj Kumar (the new character of Vivian)? When Abhay learnt that Madhu is his arch nemesis RK’s daughter, he decided to take his revenge by getting her married and punishing her. All this while, Drashti believed that she was marrying AK, the love of her life. But when Abhay reveals the guy behind the sehra – it is RK – reincarnated (not literally, but just his face). We wonder how Abhay found someone who looks like Rishab in such a short span of time; doesn’t that seem a little too convenient? Not only that, he also legally adopts him, and get’s him to marry Madhu! Would you believe that!

The story line seems simply too convenient and unbelievable, not that we are expecting much reality here but a little sense is essential, no? Marrying someone who looks similar to your father is freaky. It’s true women look for their father in their partners, but not a lookalike for sure. The story was going good with just Gunjan and Drashti in it; while Vivian’s entry adds more star quotient to it, this new sub-plot simply ruins the story. And we are not the only ones who think so. According to a source, Drashti is not too happy with the twists in the story either. Well we hope they pull up their act and get the story together before we lose all hope.Subscribe to me on YouTube

  • Jayasree

    Its tamanna who brought RK’s look alike face wala Raju.. not AK.. and AK did get shocked seeing him and did asked about this similarity to Tamanna… and the Vivian is back on this MOnday and still a day left to finish off this week.. So how can you say its not working or ruined.. if its ruined it ruined teh moment they decied to Kill Rishbala nd went for Leap..
    For me Now the Story is picking up and looks promising..

      correct this article published by GujanfansorGeet fan. VD HATERS.

    Disclaimer: I am not morally preaching nor am I reproaching Forum wasis.

    I understand quite well that it’s hard to have faith and remain patient but we must show some restraint. Abhinav Shukla and Nautanki Films just started new track less than a week ago and they haven’t even stepped into the meat of the plot. Saurabh Tewari and Co. have made a mess of the plot post leap and AS with his new team is doing his best to clean it up.

    It’s obvious that he is more amenable to listen to fans. So please let’s not jump to conclusions and start trending, petitioning, calling NF and aggravate them. There’s a saying that we can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Clearly we need to adopt this policy in our dealings with Nautanki Films. Frankly speaking, demanding that they change a track that they just started would be just counterproductive. We have to be smart about it so we don’t lose Abhinav Shukla’s receptive ears. We don’t want him and Colors TV to make the executive decision to end Madhubala post the IPL Season.

    Furthermore, AS is well aware of VD’s strong point, to play a grey, anti-hero. Also please trust Vivian that he wouldn’t just sign up to play a regular, run of the mill type of character. As I have been saying for the last few days, RajKumar has the potential to be a new age, anti-hero. In each episode, there are these tiny clues that he is not as he seems. The current plot can go in some interesting directions. My Brain Twin and I have been discussing several options.

    Option 1-Raj is pretending to be Mentally Challenged (Preferred):
    He can have his own ulterior motive, his own revenge plans against the Kapoors. Perhaps the Kapoors, AK could have been responsible for his family’s financial loss and his father committed suicide. Raj can hold them responsible and wants to take revenge. This is quite similar to Mohan Kundra’s suicide and since his was never explored. So it could be interesting.
    AK could have been directly responsible for a beloved family member’s death. Imagine just like our Right Kameena in Season 1, AK gets behind wheels drunk. On his father’s death anniversary, he gets roaring drunk and ends up hitting and killing a bystander/pedestrian who could be our Raj’s family member. And our Raj was a witness. He doesn’t just want to take revenge against AK and the Kapoors but want to make them slowly suffer. And the way to do it is to get access into the RM. As the saying goes, keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Who would ever suspect a sweet, innocent boy stuck in a man’s body of anything?
    This would be a fun twist and we will get a new version of Right Kameena towards the end of the track!

    Option 2-RajKumar condition is due to trauma (Typical)
    Raj could have a traumatizing experience as a child and never came out of it. We know that he is already terrified of the dark and is not fond of human contact. Raj could have also gotten into an accident as adult. Sometimes with serious head trauma, patients can regress into childhood. Anyway, so we can go through Madhu Jr curing Raj process and then the two of them will band together to deal with the Kapoors.

    Option 3-Madhu Jr is playing revenge game against AK/Kapoors, Right Kameena Style (Preferred)
    What if Madhu Jr is well aware of Rishbala, how they died and the Kapoors truth? What if Radhaji and Bittuji actually told her about Rishbala and she moved to Mumbai to start her revenge game against AK? In today’s precap, how did she know about the stipulation of AK retaining his property past age 38? This can also tie in with Option 1, Raj and Madhu Jr join hands from the beginning and play their revenge game against AK. Just imagine the thing Raj wanted to give to Madhu Jr could actually be information that she can use against AK? This has most potential to show two strong characters and would pay homage to an amazing, unexpected twist from last year the Prem Game. But this time its Madhu Jr and Raj teamed up against AK/Kapoors to fool them. This would be fun to watch and would be an excellent twist in the story.

    Anyway whatever options this track may take it has the potential to be interesting. I know some think that VD playing a mentally challenged character won’t lead to any romance between him and Madhu Jr. Some are not enjoying Raj’s current weak state but if all of this can lead to an excellent twist, then the story would be most interesting. So darlings please be patient, stay calm, sit back, relax, trust Abhinav Shukla and Vivian Dsena and watch Madhubala.

    Nice planted story – good job publishing some vested interest’s story! And this mysterious source doesn’t seem to have checked with Drashti either. Please do your homework. And by the by, has the writer considered that a bunch of viewers don’t care for Abhay (that charismatic soul ha ha), a man twice Madhu’s age?

  • komal

    why r u posting this type of article???????if we fans have don’t problem then why r u guys getting worry abt it ?????????? give makers one chance and keep patience

    • sadhika

      well set

  • Tainar Syed

    Dear Bollywood Life,
    I suggest you stop writing articles without getting your facts straight. You are NOT a valid news source. So cut the crap. MOST of the fans are delighted with Vivian Dsena’s return. As for my view on the track, please see the Nora Mahmoud’s post. I listed the track’s potential as well as direction the show can take. Most of us are looking forward to it. Now enough of your gossipmongering and unnecessarily stirring up drama.
    Sincerely,
    Jungli Billi

    • sadhika

      agree

  • Rishbala

    I think this new twist is good as AK is not matching with Madhu. I really like to see the story change into option 1 that Nora Mahmoud said. The story will be great and the show once more will gain MORE rates!!! Hope to see a better end for both RK and Madhu jr.

  • SADHIKA

  • Salu

    We MEIEJ fans truly believe and consider it as a DRAMA which entertain us with twist and turns and not looking it as a reality show. So even VD married DD again we dont consider him as her father. By the way as per the story line Abhay didnt bring Raju it was Tammana so please try keep finding faults which doesn’t bother the fans

  • CHERRY

    JUS GIVE TYM TO D STORY ITS JUST STARTED AND Y WILL DRASHTI NOT HAPPY ABT IT AS SHE WAS SOUNDING SO GOOD IN ALL HER INTERVIEWS ON VIV S RETURN SO PLZZZ STOP ALL UR NONSENCE AND GET A LIFE

  • Noopur Chaudhary

    Why would Vivian’s return ruin the show? In fact his return will work magic for the show. This is such a cheap tactics of making your gossip article spicy. Maintain some credibility in your story and don’t make sensational story to gain cheap publicity and quick popularity.

  • Lina Dutt

  • Priyanka

    I have exactly the same opinion as this article !! Only fans of Vivian Dsena can’t see how bad the show has become after his return

  • Bhagyasri Myla

    freak what is this?even this madhu is looking like her mother then what is the problem in it?when madhubala is at starting stage it was also suffered due to dip in trps but later showed it magic and entered into top 5 serials list.Now its takes some time to accept VIvans role but im sure it will repeat their magic again but i feel that now there is high of TRP n hope reach more high.But im happy with present track

  • Sandy Naz

    there is nothing left to show,they should end the show with rishbala.i donot understand why they r forcefully dragging the story..totally illogical

  • Admirer

    very true article!

  • Samantha

    Yes, he came and ruined it! U r right, the show was just picking up with Gunjan & Drashit in a rom-comedy and they chucked the story and are now trying to make something out of older shows, Biddai,Karol bagh,may be choti bahu too.Disappointed.I quit, the day,VD entered.I thoroughly enjoyed the way he played RK but, then I signed up for a new show post leap, and not interested in watching the hackneyed hyper drama, that is devoid of logic.

  • Mahi

    Miss Letty u r the one na who wrote that article about soaring TRP By Gunju,I think u get the answer in the next day itself when TRP drop to a new level.But u will never accept ur mistake here comes another article from you.And I was right at that time u r paid by that Gunju.VD has entered this Monday only TRP has not come yet so how can u predict anything u pighead.Majority people were not interested in ur Gunju so TRP drop,So producer has to bring back VD.U r saying as if TRP was 4 + during Gunju time.About Dharsti intead of relying on some so called sources u should have ask her personally before writing anything about her.Let me tell u one thing the people about whom u r talking that they are liking that Gunju they are the one who always hate VD.Go to hell Miss Letty.Think twice before writing anything stupid.

  • #100KDrashtiholics

    ahhh its funny that people blaming geet or gunjan fans for this article ..whats ur problem I mean really we r that strong to control such sites no ? and geet fans damn care about this crap story but till DD is here we will watch it just to see her daily … secondly people must open their eyes and sense too …look at the story ,it must be the worst track of the story and nothing else ..they are just using DVD’s talent and this is the FACT .. I agree with BL for the first time …,

  • Samantha

    So true! the show was doing fine and picking up new audience before they hastily switched the hackneyed track from Biddai & Karolbagh etc

  • Guest

    Glad to see a view not pandering to a particular fandom. I was enjoying this show Post leap, it was different and nice,now everything is back to square one.Hope they shut shop and release everyone the agony of watching the crap fest.

  • riya

    Do u have any personal problem with Vivian miss Latty why u always right negative about him.And for your kind information your so called Gunjan is not at all fit for hero role with ugly face and zero acting sense ,. If u r so impressed with Gunjan why don’t u make a serial with him.Next time write something good like ur smile ur article are also very ugly.
