The evolution of conscience isn't something that is so black and white and can be taken on such a SURFACE level....
To see the potential to Roops as a character and the layers to her, one has to delve beyond the surface...her history of being under Kala's thumb, spoilt by everyone in the family.....you expect it to be so cut and dried as Roops waking up one day and declaring that she's positive and blindly loyal to Dutta and all will be sunshine and daisies?
Characters are driven by motivations and circumstances on many levels....not everyone is as single-dimensional as Madhu that they only have one purpose to their lives which they go around blatantly declaring.
When given a chance, Roops WAS being shown to repent and try to redeem herself during the DP track, but you have mentioned previously in this thread that you didn't care much for that then either since you don't find the actress competent enough, so what would NOW make you suddenly want to give Roops a chance for redemption if they even were to consider giving her that scope in the show again?
Yes, indeed, people here are turning things personal.
I wanted to discuss the character and relationship between D/M, but obviously things got a bit out of control and we ended up in a Team Madhu and Team Roops situation.
I never said or claimed that I don't find the actress who plays Roops competent. I said that she didn't act convincingly in the emotional scenes. That doesn't mean she's incompetent. It's a harsh word considering how I find her very convincing otherwise.
Yes, you're right that Roops has been under Kala's thumb. She's been spoiled and conflicted. But if she can understand that she did wrong to Dutta, if she can realize that and regret, then I believe that she's capable of understanding what the right thing is as well. I do understand her character. I understand where she's coming from and that she can't simply go from bad to good overnight. There's a lot more I could say about her and we'd end up in a longer discussion, but I'm not interested.
I wanted to discuss Madhu and her relationship to Dutta and how I hope that the CVs will give it a chance and develop things there in the future. That's all.
