I see a biased negativity towards the Saxena's and Pratigya all the time. I see ppl always praising the thakur's : Well, I like their acting skills not their characters. They are evil and ruthless ppl who does not think twice to even kill their own DIL's. How can any sensible person support this kind of acts ?
Ppl criticize Prats for supporting her parents? Are we living in a primitive and fuedal world ,where once a daughter gets married she has to cut all her ties with her parents? If Krishna can blindly support his evil dad and mother so can she. A daughter is no less than a son just because she is married. A daughter has equal rights and responsibility. I remember when everyone praised Komal when she manipulated Kesar into taking back the case against her mother. How come Komal is praised and Pratigya is bashed for standing by her family ? Double standards !!!
What would any of you have done in the same position? Let one's own sister get raped by a monster?
K does not blindly support his parents IMO.......infact he's gone againt them quite often. He's often seen wrestling with his choice.... then ultimately going with the one that would cause the least collateral damage depending on the circumstances. The last time I saw him blindly support them was during the confrontation with IG at the engagement fiasco...... even that time, some would argue that he was justified
Komal - I don't undertand her so I can't defend or critisize her. I can only say that I never was one of those praising her during that incident. The callous way she dismissed Kesar's plight then bullied & threated her was very chilling to me. If she had told her that yes, what her mom & bro had done was horrendous but for the sake of the family cohesiveness, to please not send them to jail, maybe I would have given her the benefit of the doubt
Yes, there are some posters who indulge in knee jerk bashing of P for various reasons that I wont go into here and there are others who try to give balanced review of her actions based on whatever circumstances made her take that action........
what most people are impatient is about the fact that the character of Pratigya has not been sketched to show her trying to balance her priorities. Dont get me wrong, RED is evil. The ease with which they agree that any human thorn on their side is expendable is very chilling, but it is reality.
Pratigya is polite to them but avoids them when ever she can, but how much can she realy avoid interacting with them when she lives, cooks, cleans etc etc as any bahu is expected. I dont expect her to be warm to them, but I expect her to be smart enough to find a way to support her maike without giving the takurs more ammunition becos of her family.
If it hurts her to hear them bad mouthing them, why hasn't she been shown trying to help in a way that does not cause them further ridicule ? You may argue that whatever she does, takurs will still taunt her but there are ways she can go about it to minimize the worst of it or turn the tables and make the takurs look like hypocrites for having a problem with her wanting to be there for her family when they themselves are constantly crowing about maintaining good family relations
