Training Program Episodes - A Total Let-Down
22 April 2014 | by myellepeddiSee all my reviews

Sandhya's training at the academy was very poorly construed and a big disappointment. The terrorist part was unnecessary and laughable. The handful of terrorists hardly looked dangerous and their firearms looked like Diwali bombs!! While they were all gunned down (should not have been shown in a family drama) by trainee officers, not a single officer suffered even a scratch!

Sandhya's success in the Academy is a foregone conclusion and the need for a trophy was not there at all. I'm sure no one would have selected Pushkar as their choice and Sandhya would have been assigned there naturally as her first choice. It is not a capital or even a city to compete about!! The entire run for the trophy was baseless and childish - not worthy of future commissioners of police.

The charm of Diya aur Baati is in its simplicity and honesty and the last few weeks have been a total disaster. The lengthy speeches in praise of Sandhya's brilliant performance were boring and uncalled for. She did not impress throughout the program and did so in a hurry only towards the end to convince the viewers that she deserved the prize!The only saving grace was the impressive acting by the actor essaying the role of Zakir. Rahul & Roma were also fairly convincing. Hope the serial picks up on Sandhya's return home - the script writers appear more comfortable at Pushkar!
