ewwww the Raichands speaking pure Hindi?? Maithili in Lehnga?!?! Seriously???
I would stop watching the show if they show any of those stuff! No offence but dont you think Chaand and Haseena would have picked up the language in 300 years? I mean they weren't closed up in a tomb or somethin, were they? They evolved in the 300 years!!!
And about the lack of "indian-ness" in the show...why do we always need a show with Indian culture in it?? Don't you think a bit of western touch is like a breath of fresh air??
Honestly speaking, there is nothing like PURE Indian-ness anymore! I bet you wont find a single person who speaks pure Hindi (maybe some Hindi Lit. prof!!) But thats not the point...the indian-ness you want can only be seen in some Saas-Bahu dramas!
As a matter of fact, I think this show is kind of a typical Indian drama...I mean, I love this show but I think it still needs a bit more of western and younger generation touch...there is still way too much drama and "Indian-ness" going on!!
Fine, at the language. Lets ignore that for now.
Bit of 'western stuff' as you say is, good. But CMON, theres GOTTA be some REALITY attactched to it dont you think?
And you say you want it more westernized. If me make it anymore 'westernized' than it already is, we shall have foriegn actors acting in our soaps next!
And Victorian dresses in 18TH CENTURY? You gotta be kidding me. Wheres the reality in that ?
And besides, we have an Identity. I dont want us to be 'just an another country' which hasnt got a culture of its own. Right?
And if you must know, the main reason I made this post was beacuse, a few of my non-Indian friends were watching PKYEK with me one day. And when they saw those victorian dresses, they were like - "Victorian dresses? This soap of your is such a American soap wannabe"
(They were American)
