Thank you both for accepting my bit in the criticism - intended to be constructive musing only - but while i'm at it, i want to clarify about jignesh, cause it seems i mis-conveyed myself.
i have no issue with a bad guy being less bad, or having shades of grey and not being just black in the black and white bad and good distinction. in fact, that's how real people are, good or bad. they can have unbalanced proportions and shades of grey inclined towards black or white, but that's still grey alright.
which is how most of the other 'villains' on this show are - whether is chotte dadu's (lol) comic relief, or RPS/Mikhail not being evil enough as their first respective projections.
Jignesh however is a whole new case. for starters, he's not grey at all, he's black, cause so far there has been shown no grounds to redeem him - and like one of u said about characters being grey, as being real, this jignesh being black is almost unreal. but fine, its a show and they make him all out bad - how about not making him a contradiction at that? so my problem started when he first went leching at arohi, then blamed her about it (very dumbly - and an all out bad guy is just not meant to be dumb IMO in the first place) before tha singhania family, then conveniently took the blame on himself upon arjun's obvious threat - and what did the audience, the family do? it was hard to say what their final reaction to that scene was. except dadi's. i got back some hope when RPS and jigi had a personal dialogue over the matter, but that turned out to be just as confounded. so while i appreciate the air of mystery in any plot - makes it exciting - i don't mistake a confused script with intentional enigma, if you guys know what i mean, lol!
and now, when rashi is coming back home, jignesh gets back into that speech about how arjun has arohi in the house and what not and lol, the family is back on his side. not that we expect them to side up with arjun, but just on jignesh's part after going through that entire allegedly leching at arohi sequence, which was never really explicitly clarified between him and any of the members individually, how does that dialog even come from him? that's what i mean, by the cvs making him bad, but with a weak script. not working on him as a sound villain (who has
to grey in his character not black, if he's going to look real at all btw) and giving him all those oddly set lines that are like bumps in a smooth script.
i hope i explain my point better? this has nothing to do with bad guys being good or bad. its only my complain of a loose characterization in general.
all that said, looking forward to tuesday's episode of course - with just as much enthusiasm as always
- i'd love to be active on the forum, but unfortunately, its been ages since i've really managed discussion time on IF for any show. i'm just not as regular as i used to be once upon a time, anymore, cause life has happened over the few years =)
but hey, thanks for the welcome. appreciate that!
