Kawach fails to impress again...
The show lead by Mona Singh and Sara Khan has lost any bit of charm since Maheck Chahal's exit. The writing is getting shoddier. The editing is getting messier. Acting, well there's only so little even a good actor could do for show that is driven by such a ridiculous plot and cheap looking VFX. Seems like we haven't grown in terms of VFX and CGI since the time of Shaktiman.
Is it really that tough to come up with a compelling storyline? Is it really important for the characters to speak out loud everything they are thinking?
Today's episode opens with Saudamini (Ashwini Kalsekar) still worried about the disappearance of her daughter Manjulika (Sara Khan). Ashwini used to be a good actor, even for the first few episodes of this show. What happened now? All of her dialogues look sadly improvised. She seeks help from her son Shakti Bundela to uncover the truth behind the Kavach and her daughter's state. They successfully lure Paridhi out of the house and attack her, of course Arhaan has to come out to save her, blowing his cover in the process.
Saudamini's Guruji is rather happy about the new discovery (that Arhaan is a jinn). As now he can complete his black magic ritual and extract all of a jinn's powers. A war of words ensues between Saudamini and Arhaan, where the former challenges latter to avoid Saroj's state of dead body to be revealed to the Bundela family. A doctor comes for a check up in the house later on. He asks Saroj (who is actually Arhaan inside her dead body) to come for a full check up. The result is left as a cliffhanger.
Rajbir, the most idiotic character ever, not just on Kavach but on any Colors TV show., finally confronts Paridhi about his doubts on her. Paridhi breaks down in tears. A few minutes later he find Arhaan in his room talking to Paridhi (about Paridhi's horrifying visions) and threatens him. Paridhi reveals to Arhaan that he is doubting her of infidelity. Arhaan offers to come out...as a jinn.
Meanwhile Minty drools over Arhaan's hot bod while he is running on a treadmill. A jinn running on a treadmill to get in shape. That is right out of some sitcom.
Saudamini figures something is fishy with Paridhi's ring (it's where Manjulika is kept captive).
A revelation might change the course of the story. In order to destroy the ring Paridhi and Arhaan would have to get married. Why? The writers of the show have stopped trying. I give up on this show.
