What is the Theme of Geet HSP? And have the Geet Team abandoned it?
The Title is "Geet:Hui Sabse Parayee" but, what is the theme of the show? Is it "Justice"? Is it "Life"? Is it "Love"? Let's examine the evidence,haan!  

This is one of the first promos of the show:
[Youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtk49vnsZVI[/YOUTUBE]

It got me to THINK! The official title maybe Geet:Hui Sabse Parayee, but its about a girl living her life - zindagi - against all obstacles.  Its hopefully about her giving birth against all manacles.  Its about her finding love and happiness against all insurmountables.  Its about her finding Justice against all impossibles.  Its as simple and complex as that. Living life ain't that easy, so lets commend her for it.Clap  Are the CVs keeping to this theme and is there story yet to be told?

Living Life - Marriage?
After many trials & tribulations, she has found a life partner and is on the cusp of marrying him. Marriage is Major and Geet definitely deserves to enjoy every moment of this phase of her life. So, lets enjoy every aspect of it with her from shopping to sangeet to suhaag raat;)  The CVs are definitely on top of this element of the story.  But, what about Justice?  Have they dropped the ball there?      

What about Justice - Did the CVs Forget about it?
Dev & NT went to jail, but both are now out on bail. That is the realism not artistic license. Most people charged with such offences get bail and it takes years and years for courts to convict for appeals to be complete.  

What Happens in the meantime?  Stall Tactics!
- Kill or intimidate key witnesses - that is what NT tried to do with Geet, haan?
- Pretend they are crazy, unstable or simply sick - NT's suicide attempt is not uncommon...then there r a thousand and two diseases that some "accused" individuals suddenly develop...
- Negotiate plea bargains or dropping of charges - NT's attempt to blackmail Dev and Arjun's attempt to get Maan to drop the them.
- Victims meanwhile attempt to speed up the process and acquire protective/restraining orders...

There is more in this regard that can be tried:
- Appeal is another delay mechanism
- Character assignation, yet another
- Bribery and manipulation of the process
- Witness recantation due to intimidation or trauma
- not to mention the obvious courtroom drama that might happen
-Parties on trial tamper with the evidence - i.e. make people disappear....is that what happened with Geet's family?  Is that why Dev could not locate them?

So, what we have seen about Justice is not illogical, but rather realistic. The story has not stagnated. Moreover there is plenty more that can be shown.  

But, they need to connect the dots for the "lay" viewer that expects justice at jet speed.  Maybe have a lawyer explain the legal procss to Geet as would happen in reality. For instance what is bail? And the purpose of restraining order.  I know its not a reality show, but some info may illuminate and help the viewers grasp the logic that is there.   

Rhyme & Reason - this the Season?!
But, have the CVs still lost rhyme and reason? Or are Geet HSP fans hyper-critical?  Maybe both? I don't think the Geet HSP team has lost "it".  Have they faltered recently? Yes. They have.  
1. Maaneet's Passion went MIA for a bit - u know the "tease"/"excitement" aspect of couple much in love on the verge of marriage.  They have surely recovered in this aspect between the Tailoring Sequence and the Painfilled Mahi Dance

2. Story was AWOL - We were left to ponder did Maan drop the charges against NT?  Why does Annie not wonder about Dev and NT?  What about Vicky?  The Geet HSP finally started addressing these questions although Vicky ka abhi bhi koi naam ya nishaan nahi.  But, MSK does not appear to have forgiven NT nor asked Geet to do so.  So, the case is still on....if we ever get there.  There are a few other key q's tat CVs need to stop playing ostrich with: (1) Dev & Meera - Meera is no medusa, so Dev outside her door cannot remain forever a statue.  (2) Where is Sasha - was she soo ashamed that she joined Pindi Queen's dance troop?  (3) How preggers is Geet and when will it show?  I want to see her throw up on Maan and him hold her hair back (that is true love along with halitosis (bad breath:P))

3. Promos & Spoilers - 
They are supposed to tingle the viewer's sense and make you want to watch.  Some of the recent promos failed miserably in that regard. Do we really want to see Geet answer who she is to MSK? That to a tapkofy from nowhere sister?  Or get excited about pre-caps featuring Arjun&AnweshaROFLROFL  And 1 or 2 spoilers r great, but too many raise xpectations to high and we get hurt when the execution is not upto our sky high expectations.  Same goes for SBS - its needed for promotion purposes, but they should keep it to offscreen masti-mazak with only hints about the track.  If we have seen more then gist of the epi on SBS/SBB/etc. then we have (a) no reason to watch if we didn't like what we saw (2) we ramp up our expectations to high.  Both scenarios are counterproductive - a promo or spoiler's objective must be to create "curiosity" nothing more or less.  

That said the current promo is good - why (1) It is ambiguous - does not give away what will happen (2) Features Maaneet hugging & thinking marriage - wat cud be more exciting?  (3) Creates tension - the needed buzz - will Arjun destroy Maaneet?  If so how?   

Ufff - i cannot believe i wrote soo muchROFLROFL  Please add on ur 10 cents to my rant!

I think the CV's should  utilize logic with what ever they want to throw at us...even if its the existence of a non-existent sister. The script needs to be more refined. How much the viewer enjoys the show is dependent on good story telling. Tracks should not happen without telling us how and why it happened. It should not be left to the viewers to assume what happened. Loop holes in the story should be filled in. For example we should hear more about Sameera and Vicky. Anvesha ask why Dev was not in the wedding card, but why did she not ask about Vicky? Where is NT and what is she up to? And many more that the CV's shud be aware of.

I think Geet CVs definitely floundered from the pregnancy revelation onwards ... at some level audience criticism was justified but yeh even we are hypercritical ... unwilling to accept any new track LOL criticizing even before the whole picture is released making for some messy viewing Ouch

CVs seem to be doing fine now ..Arjun and the suspense that has been maintained with regards to his intentions and plans makes for fine viewing .. but CVs need to close loops and in some instances give a proper back story with appropriate scenes.. flashbacks etc .... audience shouldnt have to assume that THIS is what the CVs wanted to show us ... it should be clear in the episode itself ... our job is not to decipher what the CVs tried to show but think about wht next (as most are doing with Arjun .. does he know the full truth about geet .. what will happen next etc)

I personally believe that ur analysis delivers cut- and- dry  incisive hints.
 
Where the tension does not have to happen is this marriage track that seems to often assume doubt and fear snow balled into negativity:  The marriage needs to happen and does not have to be run of the mill ideas to continue the episodes.  THe marriage needs to be grande and what the fans want.  The marriage needs to work with a bang and scale so incomparable because of the social aspect of the place of the Khandhan in the Delhi socialite world and  throwing an event so expensive because Maan wants Geet to enjoy the pleasures of a wedding she could never enjoy earlier but now can.  The marriage needs to happen most of all because the PASSION between the couple is at its steaming best.
 
The theme of the GEET HSP as u rightly pointed out, a justice undone and untackled, is dampened with so many insignificant issues with entry of insignificant characters.  No doubt a few take the story forward but the peripheral issue of a rocking marriage and then tackling the challenges post marriage is forgotten.
 
Some say a baby spoils the image of the actor but if there is an mc track it can be handled well to heighten the passion and indiscrimitive obsession to the culprits who would have led to it...and tackling the whirlwind of emotions within the victim and how an 18 year old handles it post trauma...without long drawn episodes on it..And Maans desire for a family with Geet..... 
 
How about Post marriage and if not too soon, the taming of the shrew? Geet taking over Khurana Constructions one day and the areas leading to that with romance and work place nok-jhok, and Maan into new ventures...etc.
 
Cheers.

Aha.... Anj....the lawyer within has risen Embarrassed
 
Excellent points.....!! Clap I hand it to the CVs for showing the law aspect pretty realistically..!! As u put it.. this is HOW the local LEGAL system works.....!! It takes ages n agesssssss for one to get justice..just seconds to get a bail...!
 
Having been thru the bitter experiences in life..Geet now has every right to look forward with hope to the future.. while treading carefully along..!! There surely is no fault if she doesnt wish to remember the past n the people associated with that bitter past...barring from justice point of view..!! I hope she has learnt her lesson.... !!
 
U know a few days back i was reading at some so called 'Intellectual' place that how 'Geet has a gestation period longer than an elephant..' If anything...this show has faltered on this very crucial aspect...!! Barring the random convos with 'mere bachche' there is not even an iota of Geets pregnancy ever showing....!! Really hope they correct this glaring defect... in the coming times.. just like they have finaly started to bring logic back.. after the non stop Mahiiiiii Mahiiiiiiii sessions..
