I'm all caught up! *does cartwheels* ) and maybe it's my marathon viewing of the show, but in my opinion I haven't seen anything "wrong" with the show at all. *ducks from flying chappals*
Arey, arey! Hear me out!
Every track I saw in my catch-up marathon, made sense if I just waited long enough to watch the next couple of episodes. Even the Nakku-hiding-the-trust-before-marriage track (Yes, I was that far behind on the show, that I just caught up on it this weekend) made sense once I saw her interaction with AS before the wedding events began. And if a track that was as big a mess as that made sense to me and was acceptable, I really don't find it hard to stomach a bit of a time-space-continuum error in today's episode or put up with a bit of a family gathering.
To me, I liked the idea of a family gathering - it's different and sort of cozy. In fact I'll go as far as to say that it made me feel a little nostalgic - I remember sitting together with my family (extended family and all) at whim when I was back home, just because we were all there and could throw the plan together. So if I ignore the fact that it took Dutta longer than necessary to reach home and therefore allowing for the get-together to be set up, I can totally appreciate the idea that people with money to spare can get something as extensive as this, set up at whim. And since I choose to ignore those minute bloopers (honestly, they are so
insignificant in the grand scheme of things
) the show's great. It's better than many. We get 1-2 bloopers in a week or two and I can live with that. I've seen shows with 4-5 bloopers in one EPISODE! Toh ye toh kuch bhi nahi..
And it's a show yaar - I'm not sure I can judge them to give me perfection each time - I think the bloopers and W*H-ish story lines are just as important for the show as good ones. If everything's great, what exactly am I going to laugh at?! We got the best jokes during the Mavali-Supriya tracks and if that track didn't have bloopers and nonsense-storylines I'm not sure what did! (A boyfriend telling his girlfriend to SEDUCE a don as opposed to just making a run for it? Seriously! Could it get any lamer than that!
About DN's character groW*H - I haven't seen a "stagnation" in the story. Or let me rephrase, I haven't need an un-natural
stagnation in the story. Sure, we were given the feeling that Dutta was stuck in that "I hate you in the day and love you by night" routine for the past couple of weeks, but come on yaar! That is totally Dutta!! I mean this is the same man that turned into an angry reclusive don and STAYED that way for 7 years (first it was 10 years but ab Seema says it's been 7 toh maybe it is 7..?
) - if he can let a betrayal from someone he simply cared for (like Seema) fester for SEVEN years, is it really that unbelievable that he will find it hard to move past the betrayal he got from the woman he truly loved? And to take this one step forward, is it really that hard then to understand that the family (Baji and co.) have to PUSH him to acceptance through these parties or any other whacky (by normal standards) way? *nervous muh*.. To me that's okay..
And lastly, when Dutta "accused" Nakku of trying to seduce him by her beauty I did NOT see it as his doubting her intentions.. Come on yaar, the guy is trying desperately to grasp at ANY logic that will allow him to continue hating her. We hear his "accusations" and cause uproar - but we ignore his plea-esque comment when he asks her "WHY
she comes to save him every time" in the beginning?! Honestly, anything Dutta says now should not be taken at face value. He's being stubborn - as we should all know by now that he would, because that man is stubborn as a mule! And I really find his antics more adorable and amusing than upseting. When he accused Nakku of trying to "seduce him with beauty", I totally laughed and shook my head.
I mean LOOK at his face when he says this! The blatant way he is trying to harden his expression is proof that the repetition of Nakku's "faults" by him are now more to convince HIMSELF to hate her, than to convince her that he does...
*realizes she probably didn't make any sense*
Khair, this could all just be me and my optimism at its best. Plus I've learned to trust the CVs implicitly.. *nervous giggles*
Thanks yaar, for this reply! Sometimes, when I get accused of being all optimistic in the face of lame episodes, I tend to believe it. It's nice to know there are others who still have conviction in the show.
I was with Naku when she decided to hide her face before the marriage. I mean, I was worried about her apparent lack of guilt, but the CVs upheld my faith with the beautiful, beautiful marriage!! Sara had to remind me of LTL's teaser promo, that is when it hit me, that Dutta marrying the dark Naku was the fulfilment of the promise made to us in that promo. Main thamoonga uska haath...
The SR was the most aesthetically shot scene ever...Dutta pouring out his heart to a worried Naku. I have never seen a more beautiful SR ever.
Then again, Dutta's rootha hua pati act is getting on everyone's nerves. I must admit, I was one of the multitude throwing stones at him when he called her manhoos! And then again, I was dead scared when they introduced the third angle. For a show like LTL to bring in such a cheap track, it worried me silly! I thought they'd lost it! BUT again, the CVs humbled me! Suresh was brought in so that we'd see Dutta reaffirming his faith, his love for Naku. I have never seen that happen in any show. Indian husbands are dumb when it comes to such situations! Not our unpredictable, grumpy Dutta!
The last two weeks have been weird, with odd editing glitches, supernormal scenes and stuff! But I have never watched this show because it is perfect. I keep saying it, that I love LTL with its bloopers and glitches. They could treat me to the most ridiculous scenes ever, but I will love it as long as it keeps away from the beaten path. The treatment, that is what makes all the bloopers ineffective. I know that something's changed from the beginning, but the essence of LTL, it's still there. There's still that honesty about each scene, and i watch it for the love story. As long as the love story is interesting, I'll keep watching it!
Dutta being lover by night, and stranger by day....that kinda intrigued me. I love the way they're showing it. And the fact that he's fighting it so hard, that makes their love story all the more passionate! It will be rewarding to watch Dutta finally open his heart to love and let it conquer his soul.
All I can say is, I love love love this story of the adamant, impulsive don and his journey towards redemption and love!
