LOVE ACTUALLY

Ram and Priya’s romance on the Sony TRP topper has made puppy love passe. In their 40s, Ram (Ram Kapoor) and Priya (Sakshi Tanwar) met as mature adults, were completely opposite in temperament and fell in love years after marriage. Their arguments were cute, the way they made up after that even cuter.

FACES OLD AND NEW

While the older players continue to rise in popularity, the five-year leap has introduced a host of new faces. Newer subplots maintain the freshness of the show and the various twists and turns keep the interest alive. Priya met with an accident and slipped into coma and came back to life after seven years — something all Sakshi fans were waiting for eagerly.

CUTE AS A BUTTON

Amrita Mukherjee, as Ram and Priya’s adorable daughter Pihu, was the reason many of us tuned in to Bade Achhe Lagte Hain. Precocious but never paka, the six-year-old won us over with her chubby cheeks, cute smile and her love for aloo parathas. The father-daughter bond between Pihu and Ram — who called her his ‘Rockstar’ — gave us many cute moments. The recent generation leap, however, means that Amrita has given way to an older Pihu. Sigh.

C FOR CHEMISTRY

Ram and Priya brought passion to the small screen. Their intense lovemaking scene included a liplock and quite a bit of action between the sheets. The steamy scene set TRPs soaring and Twitter abuzz. Even otherwise, Ram and Priya’s teasing chemistry and playful arguments have kept the viewer hooked.

RAM KAPOOR

He is overweight. Make that fat. And yet, Ram Kapoor is the prime reason behind the consistent viewership of the Ekta Kapoor-produced show. The 40-year-old with a 40-inch waistline has scores of female fans, who especially love how adorable he looks when he gets all agitated! Awwwww.
