Neerja, thanks. Also don't stop writing your views even if they are different from others. As long as the discussion is respectful without name calling to forum participants or actors, it is just one's personal opinion.
My problem with Friday's show was that they are always projecting Dev as Kanha and Radhika as Radha. HA clip posted in the morning had lines about that too. Kanha was above all materialism and discriminations, but he was never dumb. In fact he was the brains behind the whole Mahabharat battle. So how can Dev be shown dumb especially when they showed otherwise in until day before yesterday.
If they had shown from the beginning that Maheswari was coldly calculating who hid her true nature from Dev and was mildly indulgent towards him, I could understand him thinking that he owes Maheshwari. But she and her son constantly put down Dev calling him servant and what not. They showed him only being close to Daima who also loved him and had a mission in mind for him. So it is not possible to show him being so trusting towards Maheswari.
As Misti mentioned, they better show Daima convincing Dev that Maheswari was good for his protection. But they need to make it clear to the audience. The impression I got was this was closer to Kanha and Radha's story in some sense. So Dev was prince in disguise who was brought up as an orphan for his own protection. He gets his Radha who has spiritual connection with him and for whom Dev comes before anything including the society. Together they complete each other and will fight for their rights and others' (this was meant fighting for the good family members and RP responsibilities). So Dev can not be dumb if that is the theme.
@Neerja-Thanks and I hope that you did not take my earlier post personally. It was just my POV and nothing personal against anyone in the forum. So keep on writing and discussing.
@Angie- Thats what I thought too regarding the story......if they are making the story more closer to what Krishna and Radha were (on the basis of what is known about them in books and legends)........Krishna was not dumb..........he was the brains behind Mahabharat and if Dev has been projected as that krishna then he cannot stand and say yes maam to Maheshwari. If he does that then there has to be a valid reason and not that Maheshwari has become a manipulator who has it in her to hoodwink everyone. If Dev is a loner here.......might also be reserved .......infact I will expect that, because the child Dev was wary of the others in that family.........I mean he was only close to amma and dadaji. But again I did not sense that reserve nature and wariness in Dev.........his smiling and his behaviour towards Maheshwari made him look dumb and not wary or reserved.I hope they clear this up and make the characters of Dev, amma, padma more clear and also show their interactions with each other and with Maheshwari...........also Virath-Dev interaction. I am also interested in seeing what has happened to dadaji.
Same goes for Radhika.....she has to have it inside her to stand up openly against the society for her own beliefs. The stubbornness needed for that can be seen in this Radhika..........lets see how they develop her more so that she gets the self confidence and not depend on the father.
