Not as good as Naturally Sadie
30 April 2010 | by mxb2001See all my reviews

The show was created by the same woman as Naturally Sadie so I was hoping it would be at least entertaining if not actually clever most of the time. So far I have been disappointed however. The writing is dull and insipid. I fear it may be because the stock TV writers are mostly not Indians and thus are struggling to come up with thematic material. On second thought even generic episodes have been lacklustre. The acting also seems poor although one does have to make allowances for the inexperience of the actors. Marline Yan shines though. A natural talent to be sure. Still I do rate it 7/10 because I'm happy to see something about Indians.
