Star One changes to Life OK, with Madhuri Dixit on board

With Madhuri Dixit Nene being the celebrity announcer in a hype-loaded launch, is Life OK the TV channel she was supposed to start after coming back to India? We wonder

There is noise and there is noise, but the noise that the Star-wallahs made while they were launching their new channel has got to have beaten all other noise hollow. Actually, it was not a launch, but a re-launch of Star One, which is now Life OK and believes in the catchphrase Kal ki soch kar dhat teri ki karte reh gaye – toh aaj ka kya hoga pyaare? It happened with a week-long digital engagement plan, as the honchos for the channel said, and an eight-hour-long rockathon for the web, starring Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Euphoria, Agni, Shaa’ir and Funk, and Indus Creed, along with Salim-Sulaiman, Kailash Kher and Shilpa Rao. Programming has begun, each new show introduced by a rather matronly and buxom Madhuri Dixit Nene playing sutradhar (narrator). Which made us wonder – is this the new TV channel she is said to have been starting? And what role will she play in it long-term, if she does? Any which way, things in telly-land could be changing for the better, if the tiny glimpse of the new shows that we got delivers on its promises. There is of course the rather pathbreaking Sach ka Saamna anchored by the dishy Rajeev Khandelwal, and Tum Dena Saath Mera (which makes us want to break out into the old-gold song), with a strong moral message. And then there is Mahadev, with a startled-looking Mouni Roy overdraped in fake jewellery, Meri Maa with a grubby child with a predictable sob story and Smile Please, about a family and its various madnesses. The show that we hope will be truly hatke is Saubhagyavati Bhava, about a young wife married to a deceptively ‘worthy’ man (Karanvir Bohra, who uses his naturally evil looks wonderfully) who abuses her – we look forward shudderingly to an episode where he actually threatens her with a dead (we hope) cockroach! A promising line-up, but only time will tell us whether it will all end up with highly decorated women making halwa!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Starone, you have made a huge mistake by ending GHSP.
    GHSP was the reason for your fame and popularity.
    Gurmeet Choudary and Drashti Dhami are thought of as higher than SRK-Kajol, you have created history; get them back in a season 2 or new show before its too late.

    • Kanchan

    actually i have seen all indian shows from ksbkbt till now but the show which touched my heart is ghsp actually a show dont need only a good story it need a best actors as well who tell the story by thier acting and expretion so i must say no one can bet gurti in acting and specailly when they r together exemple is ghsp which created a history and they aslso known as kajol&srk of small screen so please bring them back onscreen and they will hit and rock the show again

  • sakina

    we want ghsp season 2 back with same lead gurti and ofcourse gurti gonna rock season 2 again

  • hib

    Our favourite show GEET which was previously aired on StarOne was abrubtly ended and we came to know hardly before 10 days. This happened just cos of the revamp. It was no less than a shock for everyone cos it was the only show we used to watch.. We love the show and its leads Gurmeet & Drashti commonly regarded as GurTi , They were the USP of the show who shared a sizzling chemistry. So we want you to give us our beloved GurTi back in GEET-2 or a new show because we are missing them badly. For the channel, it was only a show , but for us it was everything. The channel has snatched our smiles by ending the show.

    They are turning star one full of youth to something called life ok with full family drama. Thats my thought. no offence

  • Ferdouz Khan

    The channel has nothing new to offer. Same old sob stories. U need popular shows like Geet Hui Sabse parayi which is a world wide rage. Plzzzzzzzz bring back Gurmeet and Drashti with a new show. The present shows are not at all appealing sorry to say.

  • Mohit Singh

    U r a Preffect actress… I love u vry much

    nice………………………………………………

  • joya

    some solid information abt this channels show….
    Dil Se Dua…Saubhagyawati Bhava? is the ditto copy of movie AGNI-SHAKSHI… by manisha / nana /jaki……. it shows 15-20 min how nana abuse manisha… 1 n 25-30 min jaki manish lov story and rest how jaki n manisha tackle nana….
    as viewer 3 hour of this – I really enjoyed… cz off course good acting and those abuse shows more mentally then physically.
    but for daily basis ,, when I get to see.. same kind of manhandling… wo hi ghisa pita.. over-acted “plz believe , I’m a psycho man“ story line.. like over pushing…. really not tolerable… and come on they dnt even change the dog name for haven sake.

    MERI MAA…….. go on you tube… type – star jolsha…… then type MA…. we wll get the ditto copy daily drama which is still on air… difference sirf itna hi hy — that was JHILIK and BANGOLI FAMILY…..but here its JHILMIL and MARATHI FAMILY…..

    and dnt even want to talk abt other show feed back….

  • y desai

    Hello Mrs Dixit ,
    This is good news that you wish to promote good and sensible tv however I was not pleased to see one show on your star one (now called life ok !! ) and that is such ka samana ! Ofcourse you should and have to face truth in life one day but if you have committed crime before that day than you should be punished rather than earning some money for their wrong doing in life .
    Dont you thing that you are promoting or conveying wrong message to people who believe in you ??
    If you beleive in laws than you must not encourage this type of show on indian TV here in uk.
    I hope this message reach to you .
    Best regards,
    Yogesh Desai.

  • S Desai

    Re: Such Ka Samana
    The people who appear on this show are greedy and would go to any lengths including appearing on this show for money.

    • asmashahzadi

      ok ager life ok a gya a to plz pyar ki yeh ek khani 2bara start ker new on life ok

  • Mumu

    Plzzzzz brng back pkyek 2 with d same cast….mostly my visu jodi!

  • Dev

    I sometimes wonder who’s the main character of your serial Mahadev? It isn’t the lord mahadev for sure. sometimes it is lord Vishnu, some time it is daksha or someone else. because it only Mahadev who is giving request to everyone. every one calling him shiv. Regarding the episode of lord Rama ,things can be told differently .Did any of other director has done like you?see late Ramanand sagars RAMAYAN where lord Rama worship Shiva at RAMESHAWAR where he(Rmanand )entirely changes the meaning of Rameshawar,because it was Rama”s serial.What about the fact that when devi Sita asks boon from devi parvati in the temple before her marriage?but gori or parvati is the rebirth of devi Sati. how come devi sati return back to take pariksha of Lord Rama.
    Your serial has seriously hurt the feeling of devotees of shiv ji.why everyone always misuse Shiva’s nam ,i don’t understand this.just keep insulting bhole BABA like this,iam sure you will get some thing out of this.
    Dev.

  • rita

    We are very annoyed that dev ka mahadev is not available for us to watch. We have issues because the serial is only for 5 mins. How can we follow the whole story, especially for our children. As wehave managed to sit them with us and have enjoyed every thing about the serial. Please give us the full episodes.
