I know most of us have many complaints about this serial..I have too. Too much of radhika on Screen, melodrama et al. I agree to all of that..But One thing which stuck me in this serial and other radhika serials is her bravery and spunk.

In the TV serial world of Doormat daughters and DILs ( even in so called progressive hindi serials) where daughters are bred to become DILs and DILs are shown to be doormats who will have to put up with bull shit from husbands and ILs, its a pleasant surprise and a welcome change to see Radhika propogating standing up for yourself and not taking any anything which she does not deserve from anyone...be it her husband. She does not show women as spineless creatures who always must cry and do regular sacrifices and take the insults of ILs timidly. Well... I just hope other serials follow suit and do not show women as docile creatures.

yes that is one thing I love in her shows though it is full of herself Angry and she shows all other characters as villainy...but I love the positivity she gives it to the story and how she stands strong

Its really great on Radhika, that she stands for herself in serials and also in life.. She has everything to make up to a creative head, continously producing serials that everything being watched.. She is in a way addin gproud and colors to women's life...

I am sorry, but I do not agree. Except for Chitty, all of Radhika's serials have been massive, and I mean massive letdowns. Annamalai, Selvi, Arasi - they were serials for Radhika, by Radhika, about Radhika. Every other woman were wicked, psychotic, jealous, malicious, obnoxious, gossip mongers. Radhika's characters are always sacrificing, blindly loyal and Miss Perfect. In fact, I consider her the biggest letdown for women. With her maturity, intelligence and talents, she could have delivered powerful messages. However, her messages range from it's ok to be a second wife, it's ok for married women to go after married men or women to go after married men, you can kill someone and get away with it and so on.  Arasi was another major disappointment. I had such high hopes for that, and turned out that Arasi was not a lioness but a toothless tiger.

I agree with Karthikka.
I must have ranted about Radhika lots throughout Selvi and Arasi, in IF. But I really can't stand the way she puts on this front of feminism, yet all her serials have women characters that are all either annoyingly weak or intolerably evil! Except for her character of course who is always perfect in every way.
I've also noticed how every main character turns bad at least at one point during the serial, then they all come moping back to her at then end. I was extremely disappointed with Arasi - there were some seriously heart warming scenes between mother and daughter in some parts, but none of it was shown at the end. (Her acting is amazing though, got to give it to her) GJ got away with everything. Arasi's relationship with her husband was one of the best things in the serial, but he got killed off....I could go on!
I'm finding Chellame okay to watch though - maybe because it's not a Radaan serial (I think?)....but even here, it has shown almost every character as cold and evil. I think Raadhika has found her niche and will stick to it, unfortunately.

@Lavy - welcome to Chellame section, havent seen u around hereEmbarrassed
 
Nice discussion going on guys. each and one of yoy have pointed out my mixed POV so I dont have any comments about radhika and her showsTongue 
 
Just one thing, compared to other naive main characters like Ganga, Abhi, Thulasi, nandhini, kasturi etc..she stands up aka her role instead of being naive and doormateConfused But in chellame, it was obivious from first epi...everyone will turn their back on her at some pointWink

@karthika.          
 
What else story u need ? All the family should be happy without jealousy. Then where does the story come from???????????????????
She shows Men and women are equal and should be given equal importance. For instance, u can take Sivakumars character in Chitti and Annamalai.
