I will not lie but coming back home after playing in the park and watching Kasautii Zindagii Kay with mom and grandmom at 8.30 every night was a ritual. TV time was filled with dramatic sounds, reincarnations and a lot more drama in the 90s, but sorry not sorry, we absolutely loved it! Sometimes, a 90's thing is a 90's thing and we're not quite sure if it fits in today's day and age. Since the popular K-show is coming back to television this month, I'm making sure you're prepared for all the tears, the slow slaps and the marriages and divorces. So, here is a special survival kit for all the binge-waters of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2.
Rule number 1: Don't do it alone. Your friends told you that they will be with you through thick and thin, right? This is the time they prove it to you. If your friends are unavailable, call your mom. She might even be able to tell you all the juicy details that you might have missed from season one.
Munchies are a must no matter what you're watching. Get some popcorn, chips or a coke. You can entertain yourself with snacks if you're too bored or too engrossed. What if something really intense happens? Comfort food, remember?
POPxo Recommends: Order these packs of makhanas (Rs 480) if you're looking for a healthier option. Buy here.
The previous season, in spite of being extra melodramatic, had some scenes that invited some serious waterworks. So, make sure you have some tissues handy... just in case!
Itna drama and emotions? To digest this, or more maybe, and to control the already existing drama in the serial, and also your life, you need a glass of wine (or something stronger may be?).
POPxo Recommends: This cool camera flask (Rs 1,299) will hold your liquor. Buy here.
You will be watching a Bong drama and I should not lie to you but they will have good food and a lot of sweets to tempt you in the series. You might as well order some for yourself before the temptation gets to you!
Bengali families talking to each other in their mother tongue. You might as well just know some basic words and phrases, bondhu. Didn't get it? Look it up!
POPxo Recommends: Oxford English-English-Bengali Dictionary (Rs 527). Buy here.
Who doesn't like to snuggle up while watching something? Cosy up under your favourite blankie and let the drama begin!
Want a cool way to have your wine? Yes, you got that right. There is nothing absurd in this. It's just something I like to do. If you're a teetotaller, you can simply add some coke in it. Stay high (drated), kids!
You can make your spot even more comfy with some pillows. You will be back here again the next night and the next...for God knows how many years. So, make it comfortable and settle in.
POPxo Recommends: This Why Bhagwan Why cushion cover (Rs 499) will definitely match the drama on your TV screen. Buy here.
