AIRLINES... Skimming the Clouds!

Post by sonshine487 on 2014-09-12, 12:53

Airlines… a weekly show. 9 PM every Sunday.

Started watching this show lately… that is not saying much as it only 3 episodes old yet. Each episodes lasting an hour. I like it… at least I am liking it for the time being.

It centers on Ananya Rawat, a newly recruited rookie pilot in a domestic airlines, INDE AIR. The story revolves around Ananya’s struggles at work which is a predominantly male area.

“Being the first female recruit in the airlines, your male colleagues will have a problem, but the female colleagues will have an even bigger problem with you.” Wise words by Captain Verma, who flew first with Ananya. True indeed. And it did materialize in the attitude of flight attendant Natasha. Sad, but true… we’d think that being females we would want other females to make progress. May be it is a case of… “make progress, but not more than me!”

The male chauvinism is depicted with a touch of humor right from the first when Ananya introduces herself to her rookie colleagues. The trite comments and the attitude is bang on when a male pilot refuses to shake hands with Ananya saying that he better maintain a distance in order to avoid sexual harassment cases. Also when she enters the locker room and is promptly directed to the airhostess locker rooms. Ananya counters that latter comment with a smile, removing her overcoat to reveal her pilot’s uniform. What took the cake was in the second episode when she entered the locker room to catch another pilot with his fly open… hilarious!

Ananya is shown as a very calm and quiet girl with a core of steel. She is the grand-daughter of a retired airman in the IAF who dreamt of being a pilot but the said dreams didn’t materialize… so he lives his dreams through Ananya, his favourite. The two share a strong bond and derive strength from each other. Ananya and her mother live with her maternal Grandfather along with her uncle, aunt and two cousins. Ananya’s education has been taken care of by loans with the house as security which hasn’t gone down well with the aunt, who expects Ananya to shoulder all the responsibility in return. Her mother is a soft, loving soul who thinks the world of her daughter.

Ananya as a result is a girl who dares to fly but with her feet firmly on the ground. Largely non-confrontational, she also does not take things lying down. She cannot stand injustice. She can take a joke though and smiles at the human follies and frailty.

Loved that old Ambassador that Ananya was driving to the airport on her first day of work. Also a nice touch… the little boy, her cousin, having to hold the antenna by hand outside so that Ananya can listen to the weather report on the car radio. Too cute!

The other central character is Captain Akash Saluja, a senior pilot in INDE AIR.  Apparently he has a past. He was in the Indian Army. The issue is a mystery. At the moment though, he is shown to be involved in some fishy business, involving a number in the newspaper, several meetings with defense personnel and a secretly delivered gun at the airport. He is shown as a flirt and a borderline chauvinist, though to be fair, he had no issues with Ananya being a female, but with her refusal to let him take control of her first flight. Can’t blame her though… Captain Verma had a heart attack, she was in command and Akash who happened to be on the flight as a passenger was not officially on duty, so she had every right to throw him out of the cockpit, which she did. But the incident escalated and now there is a tug of war between the two.

But Ananya has the grace and the poise and a subtle humor sense with which she is able to win over hardened MCPs like Captain Rathore. She managed to wring an appreciative smile from him after all. So let us see where it will lead us.

But it will be entertaining, that is to be sure… Akash has a wicked sense of humor. I totally digged the way he was needling Ananya in the 3rd episodes. He enjoyed taking the mickey out of her. Loved the way he made fun of her being too soft-hearted for her own good. Loved how Ananya was flabbergasted to be made a fool of by the frail looking “elderly” lady on the flight and how Akash dealt with it so cleverly.

Also there is Natasha… she is a millionaires daughter. But works as an airhostess, to be near Akash…. Apparently. Wonder if she is the fishy employee on INDE AIR that Akash is in the trail of? Or is Akash himself the fishy one? Also that news snippet of two terrorists succeeding in entering the country. Are they connected? Let us wait and find out.

Each episode deals with a different micro theme… the 1st was when the pilot had a heart attack. The 2nd episode… a bomb threat; and the third episode was about a diamond thief on board. But the series is connected by the mystery involving Akash.

Let us hope that this will prevent us from getting bored. A new scenario every week… new faces to see and all.

So much for the pro’s. Now for the cons…

How much can they show with everything centered around the airport and the inside of a plane. Already they are repeating a lot of footages. It is so obvious that the take off and landings shown are the same even though said to be at different airports… that can’t be helped though. Perhaps they will divert to the personal lives of the crew too…

Whatever it is, I am in… the only time they showed a kitchen on terra firma, it was a man (Ananya’s Nanaji) who was making tea!

not a bad start...but wat got me when captain had heart attack and he asked akash to take over akash said he was off duty he couldn't because of procedure...all he had to do knowing wat they were was to go into the cockpit and say to her that I am here if needed...but no it felt forced to try and get an argument between the two for him to try and take charge...

akash dealings seem iffy I wonder whether he is an undercover agent or along that line..

this i hope doesn't have kitchen politics...the little they have shown of the aunty is more than enough...

more in favour of undercover agent

the man who was with Akash in the 2nd episode... discussing about the enquiry committee dates and the one who was told about the bomb...

Ananya was telling him that she was let off by the inquiry team bec she was right. fat head got the issue confused. the chief was firm that the inquiry was about the pilots' petty fight in the cockpit... and not about Ananya not letting Akash take over. Akash was smiling bec of that.

3rd episode end
No Akash merely smiles... That is why I think he has some ulterior motive in kicking up a dust
Besides it was done in a bantering kind of way... I don't think Ananya was being superior at all. She was trying to needle him like he did to her in the cockpit.

no he is not the classic mcp...there is more to his character...hopefully they will keep it interesting...

u mean he raised a hue and cry on the plane to divert or avert something else...u wouldn't expect him to take it ap far as disciplinary action on the ground...
