Now Miley Jab Hum Tum is about to end on 19th November. Star One is now looking on a complete makeover, and is ending its old shows and bringing in a new flavour. But will this really work with the audience that is left to be seen. For the moment the news is that another popular show Miley Jab Hum Tum is going to end in a couple of week’s time. This show started 2 years back and gained really good popularity as it was about the college youth, and so attracted a lot of youngsters. But now the sources say that it is coming to an end.

Earlier just about a week back, Star One ended its one of the most popular show ever Dill Mill Gayye. It has left many fans disappointed. Now with MJHT also coming to an end, it might be sad news, especially for people like who generally watched only these two shows. I guess the creatives of the show had the closure in my mind for some time now, and that is why did were trying to get everything well and on track as the initial story line suggested.

In the DMG’s case as well, the show suddenly ended but I am happy that it had a happy ending to it. Hopefully MJHT will also have a similar happy ending. I won’t say that I am happy with the changes happening, but if they have to happen why not happen with a good end to it. The news is that all is going to be well before the end.

A new show titled Dhoondh Legi Manzil Hamein is to replace Miley Jab Hum Tum from 22nd Nov. There are already speculations of the next season of the show to start. In fact for DMG people are already talking about the next season starting in January. Though all this looks very difficult since almost all the shows at the moment are relatively new and the channel would not want to end them abruptly.

Anyways I am hoping to see these shows again, in a new season. If not the show at least the actors again maybe in some other show. Well in the end I just hope the show ends in a grand style.


I have not been watching the show for a long time now, in fact even before the leap. Though I was keeping myself updated about the show, I left that as well once the leap took place. After a long time I happened to watch the episode, and I was happy to see the changes.

It looks like that the main characters Gunjan and Samrat are back together, Diya is also back on the show, and yes the show might bring Nupur back (very Ekta Kapoor like story). But is this does happen I might not complain as I am happy that they are not spoiling the true love stories, something what the creatives of DMG have done. I do like love stories a lot, and to no surprises I like happy endings. So though getting back a character from the death sounds ridiculous I am still happy as it might mark a happy ending.

Although I am not sure if all this is going to happen, but it is just my understanding and interpretation of the three episodes I did watch, and my experiences that I have had for so many years watching various Ekta Kapoor shows. But I hope that my interpretation is correct. Also if that is true I am not sure why did the leap take place, what I mean is why were the new characters introduced in the first place, what has been their role so far in the show. Maybe I have not been watching the show that is why I am not aware of it.

Also if all this is true there is a possibility that MJHT might end or I can say wind up very soon, I mean after all the happy ending. Though again with all these extra new characters the creatives might bring in a lot many twists further, maybe extending the run of the show for a little longer.

I have just seen about three episodes so far, I have been happy to see Diya back, but also have missed Uday and Benji a lot. I feel they were equally important as the four leads, since their comic timing was something that never made one get bored after seeing all the old romantic scenes.

Again I hope that all this is true, and yes I also hope that Uday and benji also come back on the show to add that extra spice. And yes I hope that the DMF creatives are watching it and learn a lot more about love stories from here.


I had written in my last post about MJHT going to take a leap of 3 years. I had the news that Uday and Benji will not be part of the show. But now it has been confirmed that even Diya will not be a part of the show. Also shocking is that one of the four main characters will be shown dead. So in a way they have removed more than half of their lead cast. They are also planning to get in new faces into the show, I guess to bring freshness to the show. Hopefully these steps do not backfire as they did in the case of Dill Mill Gayye. There also similar steps were taken between season 1 and 2. And it badly backfired, and so they had to bring their two leads back into the show. Here is the complete article.

Star One’s Miley Jab Hum Tum will go in for a major revamp, with the introduction of few new characters…

Star One’s Miley Jab Hum Tum, produced by Sunshine Productions and Endemol will be going in for a major revamp with some fresh new characters entering the show. The show will have a new set of students, and along with it the old popular faces will be seen in a new avatar.

The show will also complete a milestone of 400 episodes on May 26th, and the big makeover has been planned to kick start around this time!!

According to our source, “Rapid changes in story line will be aired from May 24th to May 31st, and in the first week of June, a leap will be shown with which the story line will go ahead in time, by three years. This will be called the Season 2 of Miley Jab Hum Tum”.

However, very popular characters of Season One, Uday, Benji and Dia played by Jas Karan Singh, Abhishek Sharma
As per our source, “The trio have been informed that they will no longer be part of the show. They will be shooting for the show for another one week or so”.

Jas Karan Singh confirmed the news and said, “Yes, Uday will not be seen in Season 2”.

Naveena Bole too confirmed that she will not be part of the show. Abhishek Sharma was unavailable for comments.

A little birdie from the sets tells us, “The makeover will also be in terms of the sets. A new set is being erected for the Season 2. The old actors will be seen in new avatars, and their costume would also see a sea-change”.
When contacted, Producer Sudhir Sharma confirmed the revamp and said, “Yes, Miley Jab Hum Tum is going for a major revamp. Few new characters will be introduced. We will see fresh and exciting story lines, and the viewers will surely not be disappointed”.

As per our source, “None of the new characters have been finalized, and auditions for the same are going on. But the biggest shocker for the audience will be that, one amongst the four principal characters, Mayank (Arjun Bijlani), Nupur (Rati Pandey), Samrat (Mohit Sehgal) and Gunjan (Sanaya Irani) will be shown as dead at the end of Season One. And this will change the lives of the other three forever. However, the character who will be killed has not been decided yet”.”

Well I have anyways stopped watching both the shows, but I try to keep myself updated by reading on what is happening around. I just hope that the season 2 works well; maybe I will give it a try to the show once again when the season 2 starts.


Now it is heard that Miley Jab Hum Tum will go the Dill Mill Gayye way, and take a three year leap. Another thing that MJHT follows is that it too removes it’s characters from the first season. Jas Karan (Uday) and Abhishek (Benji) have to bear the brunt of having been dropped from the show. Here is the main article.

“Miley Jab Hum Tum one of the most popular serials on air currently is in for a change. The makers have decided to go in for a season 2 for this youth show. In view of this change, two of the most popular actors Jas Karan (Uday) and Abhishek (Benji) have been dropped from the second season.

Sources have informed TellyChakkar that there will be a major twist in the story line. One of the popular characters amongst the four (Mayank, Nupur, Gunjan & Samrat) will die in an accident followed by a three-year leap in the serial. If sources are to be trusted, this leap is going to happen in the next couple of weeks.

If this was shocking enough, think of how to react to a Miley Jab Hum Tum sans Jas Karan and Abhishek Sharma. Their characters Uday and Benji are no longer there in the storyline for the second season.

Sources inform us that both the actors were told of the development and the fact that this was a creative team’s decision yesterday.

Adds a hurt Jas Karan, “This is a very unfortunate development. We had been hearing about a leap in the show and thought that there would be newer characters along with us. I never really thought of being axed in season 2.” The popular actor still cannot believe what happened and says, “They tried the same in Dill Mill Gaye but had to bring back Karan Singh Grover on popular demand. I hope the creative team here has a plan B in case the new season 2 plan does not work. Whatever it is, I wish the team all the very best.”

While Abhishek confirmed the news that he will not be there in the second season of Miley Jab Hum Tum, he refused to comment any further.

However, the mystery of who is going to die in season 2 still continues!

The current track focuses on Mayank and Nupur’s misunderstandings, while Samrat and Gunjan have kissed and made up!”

Well I can only say is that hopefully Miley Jab Hum Tum does not fall apart as Dill Mill Gayye did. After all this has happened, one can only say that probably instead of going to the next season, they should shut down their shows and allow new ones to enter. With the season 2 no one is bringing anything new in fact they are losing almost everything.


While searching over the internet I came across one of these articles that speak about that Star One channel is looking for a makeover and possibly try to shut down quite a few shows and start others that will attract a little wider generation. I am pasting the article here for everyone. I am not sure this is true or not but it comes from a source that I trust at least.

” Star One shows which have been centering around youth based subjects have not clicked too well with the masses!! While COLORS, the #1 General Entertainment Channel sits cozily with a soaring GRP of 314, Star One lags far behind with a GRP of a meager 51.

According to our source, “The channel is now looking for a major reconstruction in terms of its programming. This includes plans of considering the closure of youth based shows Dill Mill Gayye and Love Ne Mila Di Jodi”.

It is heard that the Shakuntalam Telefilms show Love Ne Mila Di Jodi has recently been served a notice to better its ratings. However, when we called Chandana Sharma, the lead girl of the show, she denied the news.

Producer Shyamashis Bhattacharya, Shakuntalam Telefilms too denied having received any notice and said, “Lots of high points are coming up in the story, with which hopefully the ratings will go up”.

Coming to Dill Mill Gayye, sources say that this long running medical drama might wrap up in December. Earlier, it was suggested that the creatives may attempt to resurrect the once highly popular Cinevistaas show with the return of Karan Singh Grover. But with his recent bad publicity owing to the problems in his personal life, the channel is skeptical if he will again click with the audience. Also, chances of Karan and Jennifer Winget working together look dim after all that happened between them.

An insider who is part of Dill Mill Gayye, on terms of anonymity said, “It is fine if the channel wants to take off the show. It has lived its life, but you cannot blame it on the TRP, as the channel’s ratings itself don’t rock”.

Another insider further added that no decision has been taken as of now, but if the ratings of Dill Mill Gayye don’t improve, then anything can happen.

It is also speculated that the channel is looking for a complete image change. “In place of the current youth based content, the channel may opt for social and family drama based shows which are popular with other GEC. In such a scenario, even the new property Hum Dono Hai Alag Alag might end. The only show that might survive the purge is Miley Jab Hum Tum, as it is doing well, and of course the newly introduced show Jaane Pehchaane Seh Yeh Ajnabbi”.

Another source said that the reason why the above college based show rocks is the freshness of the story and the college back drop, which is nowhere to be seen on television.

Well, let’s see whether the existing shows on the channel manage to pass the acid test or not!! “

Well this article disappoints me further. I had just somehow started to like the new interns and then I read this article. Another disappointment is that Love ne Mila Di Jodi is a show that I had started liking as it has got a lot of twists and turns and the story here is moving quite fast. But one can never say what exactly is in the mind of the channel heads. Anyways Star One is known to end its shows abruptly and this is not something new to them. The number of shows it ended abruptly is endless starting from the days of Remix. This is one of the reasons why no show has continued for a long time on the channel. Remix had stayed for about 1 and a half years or a little more and now Dill Mill Gayye has stayed for more than two years making these the only two shows that have survived for such a long time on the show. This is sad and I guess that is one of the reasons why the channel does not get high GRP. Otherwise this channel had good shows running, for example, Remix, Siddhant, Special Squad, Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai, India Calling and now Dill Mill Gayye and a few more to add to this were shows that did click with the viewers.

Now talking about the makeover of the channel, I think it’s not really correct as this only one of the channels apart from Sab TV that I think have a large variety in their shows and most of the shows do attract the youth and the younger generation as well not like the other channels. In really shows aspect as well they have shown Great Indian Laughter Challenge, one of the concepts that are taken by a lot many other channels now.

I definitely feel that they don’t need a makeover. They just need to put a few things in the minds of the show’s producers and creative’s that they should stick around their original story line and not experiment too much with it and definitely the shows will rock amongst the viewers.

ABOUT THE SHOW
mileyjab_humtum

The coolest kids in Mumbai are all jet set to heat up this winter with zest, energy and oodles of fun… while the horizon is set ablaze for them with hopes and aspirations, circumstances seem to eclipse them when Diya (the college diva) finds out that she needs to host two cousins… cousins as in “small towners”… and that is so NOT HAPPENING!

Mumbai has been their Utopia and their march towards it has just begun. The glass domes and glass bubbles they envisioned are about to become real. Gunjan and Nupur are about to float on to the blissfully everlasting wondrous mists that engulf city of dreams for million Indians and while Gunjan wants to cautiously wet her feet into the water before plunging in. Nupur cant wait to dive in to this sea of opportunities.

Where the sisters are awaiting the challenge of the big city, we see Diya along with her brother Uday gearing up to ensure that this dive is one the sisters will never forget and may be even live to regret. And a gang of youngsters are seen planning a welcome for these unassuming sisters.

The mild and reclusive Gunjan will venture out to find a special place for herself in a congested world and find herself increasingly attracted towards the one guy she fears… the one guy the entire college loves… the one guy who becomes the bone of contention between her cousin Diya and her… the one guy for every girl and woman: Samrat!

For Nupur it is a journey that imposes a reality check on the way she views life. A shattering of the bubbly and vivacious façade that aims to keep every one happy… for Nupur it is meeting Mayank, which truly is the fusion of fire and ice… of the need for balance in one’s life. For nupur it is about learning to love the man she abhors.

ABOUT THE CHARACTERS

Gunjan
If her elder sister Nupur is like an energetic river, the younger Gunjan is like a still lake. She has a calming effect because of her contemplative nature. Even though the elder Nupur thinks that bachchi, as she calls her fondly, thinks too much. Even if she has to decide which way to take for her new college, she would go through all the pros and cons much to the irritation of the elder one.
She has her own sweet charm. She is shy and reclusive. A studious girl who always came home from school and did her homework before she ate her food. Likes to live a simple non-complicated life. Gunjan was very close to her mother. She oftens misses her and talks to her picture. She doesn’t share her feelings about mother with her father or elder sister. Though being a simple and calm character she ends up being with the hottest boy in the college – Samrat.

Nupur
In small town (Morena), Nupur was like a spark of electricity for the lazy town. Outspoken and extroverted Nupur has the uncanny ability to chat and yap with anyone and any language. According to small town standards atleast, Nupur is a style icon of sorts. She always manages to conjure up ways of standing out of the crowd. she wears little ghungroos on her footwear, carefully matches hairband with an interesting salwar suit. Whatever you may say this girl is a Diva in Morena or atleast she believes that she is!
She has all types of friends from school to college to canteen and net friends. Motto in life: Chin up! In the City, she faces just the opposite of what she experienced in Morena. She finds it really hard to make even acquaintances forget making friends. Her find for a smart, handsome, popular dream man ends on Mayank who is a simple and somber personality.

Mayank
Mayank is a straight and focused academic. He is witty, well read, smart and intelligent and understands that hard work is what is going to help achieve goals for him. He will finally get along with Nupur, a girl completely opposite his character.

Samrat
Our hero of the college. Cool Dude… Fun loving. He is famous because he is good looking as well as he is the top sportsman in the college. He likes to play pranks but he doesn’t mean to hurt anybody. Little overconfident Basket ball star who has won many trophies for his college. Girls drool over him.
Samrat’s character is one of “MASTI” and not of a “kameena”. So very clearly he prides everything he does. he jokes and takes light hearted pot shots but can never be projected as mean. Though he hangs out with Diya but his relationship with Diya isn’t a committed one. He likes hanging around with Diya, as she is gorgeous but it is from Diya’s perspective a relationship that is meant to happen.

Diya
She is the Diva in her college. She is the most hot and happening girl in college. Most of the girls are jealous of her and those who are not, they are in her gang. All the boys in the college are just too fascinated by her. She is a trendsetter in looks and carries her clothes with great confidence.
Everyone likes Diya, but she likes Samrat. She hangs around with him most of the time giving others an impression that Samrat is her boy friend but samrat doesn’t think like that. This equaton takes a sharp turn when Samrat falls for Gunjan. Diya uses even Uday to get her things done. She has a gang of three chamchas – A,B and C who follow her in every aspect.

Uday
Uday is a slow-dumb witted comic relief for the show. He tries to put up this brave exterior, but somewhere inside he is a scary poo. He is actually scared of many things – his sister, cockroaches, Samrat (but doesn’t show it), the dark etc. He has all kinds of paraphernalia for exercise. MORE BRAUN – LESS BRAIN.
Diya hates his sweat! His towels! She can be a super bitch even to him. When she gets hollered by the Dad…Uday will be thrilled to bits…maybe roll in laughter on the bed without any sound! Her problem is that at home he is the only soldier she has in this war against Nupur & Gunjan, so she must bear him.
Diya is elder to Uday by a minute and she has always been bullying him. So the first chance he gets to bully someone… he grabs it! That’s where Nupur and Gunjan come into the picture. He can put up a front of being a bully but this can at a later stage be shattered bit by bit by the two girls. Diya calls him DODO.
