    Thanks for the post, Ramki! Definitely TNS deserves a pat on his back! If we get tired of watching such lengthy serials, imagine his plight directing so many episodes, Great work indeed! Waiting to watch Mrs. Mukyamantri (Only a matter of 3 hours). But I am happy that Muktha is finally getting over after stretching it over and over.

    RK iga neevu hosa serial huduka beku 🙂

    Vidya: You are welcome. I am also glad the serial is getting over. The director has said that directing the serial drained him out. Actually, for the last one month, I feel a part of the audience also got drained out and bored seeing the dragging of Muktha.
    Well, let’s see how he directs the film ‘Mrs.M’. Not all teleserial directors have been able to balance both TV and Movie direction. And since TNS’ “Matadaana” just attracted the niche audience and didn’t fare too well at the box-office, eager to see whether TNS has learnt any lessons.

    Vijay: Welcome back! Illa saar, sadhyakke bere yavdu serial hucchu illa. Yeno Court scenes goskra Muktha hucchu hidithu. As I have written in an earlier post, TNS attracted non-serial watchers into getting addicted to “Muktha”.
    Cheers & keep visiting 🙂

    Mukta was a serial(I am deliberately using past tense-its singing sayonara anyway) which made the typical under dog sit up in self belief!She too could fight the rich and powerful .And win! It freed one’s notions of –Enu maadokkagalla,naavenu gellokkagalla Nammanella tulidhaki bidtaare–
    but it has to end
    so that people get on with their lives—

    Welcome to ‘Rambling with Bellur’.
    Thanks for the well-written comment. Muktha showed the story of most middle-class families, politicians, religious institutions, business men, lawyers, doctors…….the psyshology of human mind has been portrayed very well in this Mega serial. It showed what goes on behind the scenes in so many different spheres of life.
    All in all, a serial worth watching.
    Do visit again. Good luck.
