Fan Speak: GEET was just not a journey…..It was a way of Life – Raashi Jain!

Many serials, jodis and actors have come and gone in Indian Television Industry but no one has been able to reach the heights that GHSP/Maaneet/Gurti conquered just within seconds with their magic.

Maaneet taught us the true meaning of love through portrayal of each and every feelings in such a way that kept viewers all over the world captivated and mesmerised and will keep doing it forever with their beautiful memories. “Kurbaan hua” is such a benchmark in their and our journey without which describing geet and maan is very herculine task followed by many more such song sequences such as Hum tum, Behne de, Teri deewani, Pee loon, Roop tera mastana and many more as well as with many touching sequences such as “Aaj se zindagi ki har subah tumse shuru aur har raat tum pe khatam”, sonography moment and maan apologising geet for choosing her above her child during steam room attack by Brij. And how can one forget about that khatti-meethi nok-jhoks between the duo which brought them closer than ever.


Maaneet had not been what they are today if there would not have been so many more characters in the show. Be it a positive character or a negative one, both played a role of cupid by bringing maan and geet closer. Had Dev and Naintara not ruined geet’s life, her own family would not have been against her forcing geet to leave hoshiyarpur and start a new life in Delhi. Had not Adi called Pinky to office when she went to pick up geet, she would not have gotten that job as Maan’s secretary. Dadi played a vital role by not only giving geet back her job when she herself had left it but also by making her shift to outhouse of KM. Other important people being Sasha, Tasha, Rahul, Pari, DeMello’s, Meera, Yash, Romeo, Pandeyji, Manisha, Annie, Arjun, Brij and the list goes on and on.


I know I have written too much but not to forget the technicians. But wait where’s our life and geet?

GHSP came into our lives through television but we started getting involved in it thoroughly through geet pages on facebook, they gave us many friends and in sometime people all over the world became one big family. After that started the fan fictions which too very soon became our life and gave us a whole new world of maaneet. Slowly and steadily Maaneet entered our lives through various means and when they started governing it we never came to know. It was like a most natural thing happening to us and became our lives!!!

Maine kuch zyada hi likh diya na, par kya karun mujhe samajh hi nahi aa raha tha ki kya chodun aur kya likhun………abhi bhi bahut kuch aisa hai jo mai nahi likh payi……aap sab toh jaante hi hai ki agar maaneet ke baare mei baat karo to shabd kum pad jate hai par unki baatein nahi khatam hoti hai……..hope you all like it!

Fan Speak: This show GOT to release on DVD – Sadia!

I still remember the day I first found Geet – the show I mean! I was browsing through YouTube when I saw the little thumbnail of “Kurbaan Hua” song sequence – that infamous picture of Geet in white and Maan in black behind her. For someone who doesn’t watch Indian serials, I don’t know why, but I couldn’t stop myself from clicking that thumbnail to watch the video. The thumbnail itself made me curious – the lighting, the colour theme, the expressions on the actors’ faces, the pose – I never saw anything like that – atleast not on anything Indian serial related!

After I watched the video, I couldn’t sleep. Literally – all I could think about was “what did I just watch”. I got up and started browsing through more Geet related videos. The next clip I saw was the “Maahi Maahi” song sequence and from that moment, there was no coming back. I was physically stunned! It’s one of the most beautiful and passionate sequence I’ve seen in my entire life. From that day onwards, I was hooked to this serial. My nights would be spent watching Geet-Maan related scenes and my days would be spent thinking about the scenes and trying to stay awake, while working or studying!

There are many serials on TV, there are many actors and actresses on TV. But for me, I have never seen anyone like Drashti Dhami and Gurmeet Choudhary. Their approach to a scene, their interaction to not just eachother but other characters, the way they say their dialogues – it’s unlike anything I’ve seen! And this goes not just for the actors but the entire team of Geet. I wonder if they fully understand what they have created!

What bought me to the Geet forum was a single thought after watching “Maan’s Letter to Geet scene” from the Amritsar track. There are many beautifully shot scenes in Geet; the “Dargah scene”, the “Behne De” scene, the “Kehna Hi Kya” scene, but that “letter scene” is my favourite. It’s like as if the camera was reciting and enacting the most romantic poem one could think of! Beautiful close up shots of Drashti and Gurmeet also showed the brilliance of the makeup team this show has.

And yes the single thought was “this show GOT to release on DVD” – because all I wanted to do was keep this show in my possession forever! A very selfish thought turned into, probably the most selfless thing I have done in my life?! The thought was so strong that I made a Facebook account for the sole purpose of being a part of the “Geet” forum. I went to the forum as a silent observer. I still consider myself that. But as I introduced this single thought of mine to the world of “Geet”, I wasn’t so silently observing anymore. I found four people – four sisters I should say; Zainab, Sejal, Iffy and Rani. That single thought of mine was not so single anymore – it has become a thought for many. I now run a page with my sisters to turn this single thought into a reality for all of us Geet fans.


Can a show give so much to it’s fans? Geet has. We will forever remain thankful to the makers, actors, creators; infact the entire team of Geet, for giving us something so beautiful, priceless and invaluable. 

Thank you Rangmunch TV, for giving us fans a platform to express our thoughts to the team of Geet.

Fanspeak: Kurbaan Hua was Poetry in Motion-Niharika Sonti

For me, this show has really lived up to its name. It was a like a song whose tune had me enchanted and mesmerised and evoked a plethora of emotions – love, pain, angst, laughter. I was introduced to this show quite by accident by one of school friends and my namesake Niharika Vidyasagar. 

I watched a few of the old episodes out of curiosity, but the one scene that truly captivated me was the song sequence “Kurbaan Hua”

If I had to describe that scene, I would say it was “poetry in motion”. There have been many song sequences before and after that in the show that I have enjoyed, but to me “Kurbaan Hua” will always remain the most special one of all of them. Though it pains me to know that the show is ending, I feel heartened by the fact that the magic of our favourite pair can be relived by catching all the episodes online or in the form of fan fictions. I will forever be grateful to this show and its entire cast and crew (and of course my friend) for giving me some wonderful memories to cherish and relive the years to come.
