And just when we thought Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai : Take 2 has started catching its pace, the season aired its finale episode. Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai : Take 2 was a huge disappointment if we compare this season with the original, Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai. Having said that, we cannot deny that last 2-3 episodes of season 2 were relatively better, funnier, if nothing in comparison to the original.
Here are the 5 things we missed in this season:
1. Indravardhan’s mischief:
It was disappointing to say the least to see Indu all matured up, not playing his usual pranks or being a Naradmuni. We missed seeing him bickering with his beloved wife, troubling his least favourite child, Rosesh. Also, the equation he used to share with his lovely daughter in law, Monisha was missing in the Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai : Take 2.
2. Weak and easily defeated Maya:
Maya got a match in terms of a terrifically strong character in Jasmine who unlike any other character in the show, refused to bow down to her highness Maya. Maya all of a sudden became a weak, feeble poor mother with her every tactics and tricks failing in front of Jasmine. Needless to say we missed the older and domineering Maya Sarabhai.
3. Too less of gadget freak:
In whichever scene Dushyant made an appearance, the scene lit up with excellent comic timing and wit. In this season he was hardly there, had he been used in the season, Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai could have been saved.
4. Why gave Sahil Sarabhai a backseat?
Sahil was one character who shared an excellent equation with each and every character. Be it the uber cute romance with his wife, Monisha, love-tease relationship with Rosesh or him being an ideal son cum friend to his parents, Sahil Sarabhai was one perfect Sarabhai. However, in this season there was hardly any stress on his romance with Monisha, his sibling love cum rivalry with Rosesh or the partners in crime relationship he used to share with Indravardhan. In fact in this season he was shown only falling apart with every character though thankfully to patch up with them soon.
5. Why was the season not an episodic?
Unlike the original, Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai: Take 2 was not an episodic but a series with each episode connected to each other. And that was a major dud as the series on its whole did not make any sense. It lacked a serious plot line, it lacked an apex and it lacked a proper running story. In fact things were just happening and the characters were made to do what they usually do, and least to say, it was as awkward as it gets.
Let’s look back and think what really was the plot line of the season, nothing. Rosesh torn between his girlfriend and momma and the others doing something something, we are not exactly sure what.
