They do make a good team ..both Krishna/Paarth, Krishna/Pratigya..
Arjun was all set to fight for truth andrights and righteousness but was momentarily overcome by temporal emotions, It took Geeta Upadesh for Arjun to overcome it..and also he did overcome it bec he knew that what Krishna said was the truth ..he regained the will that was lost temporarily..similarly even here when Pratigya is weakening or is being muzzled, Krishna fights back..giving the proverbial boost to the flagging Pratigya..
I will try to answer as best as I can, for I too am still wondering about it ...IMO..Pratigya's fight is for women's rights..and the stand of right is based more on Law rather than on Dharam..Her motivation is her inherent need for justice in all things..sometimes even to the deteriment of the victim..Tanths, I have an issue on this about her fighting for womens rights...Someone who believes in women rights wont allow some other women to be a barter in a marriage arrangement like how Komal was...She knew the reason Adarsh asked for Komal's hand in marriage...A woman would not willingly allow some woman to spoil their life...But this has nothing to do with being illegal as such but morally wrong...
Star If I may add my 2 cents... According to me (after she showed disapproval and Adarsh refused to budge) prats believed her family members would take care of Komal the same way they had cared for her.. she was aware of the circumstances yet she knew unlike the Tachrus her family would not physically harm her in fact she repeatedly stated to her brother the importance of taking care of her regardless of how the marraige took place.. (I understand they have emotionally abused her.. and he has been a bad husband).. but how was prats to know.. here Komal's family members took advantage of the situation for personal advantages.. while prats simply saw Komal being married in to an acceptable family !!
True..But here Pratigya is shown as a girl who is focused only on Truth and rights..sometimes they supersede relations , she is an idealist, a dreamer ,a preacher ..
I accept that K has fallen in love with P and actually has rather a lot to be proud of - after all he has netted a pretty, educated, so called sherni of a wife, who he knows is capable in all ways - great catch!
At the same time , remember Pratigya was not turned on by an educated, well heeled guy and she made the move towards Krishna after he rejected her, She knew his shortcomings ..yet she accepted him [not fully but yes with some proviso]..I would say that she does love him , where Krishna is extrovert,Pratigya is not..
and yes, Krishna's love tinges on obsessions , it's crushing like a roaring waterfall ..whereas Pratigya's love is like a gentle river..prone to sudden floods..
in an relationship..both need not have the same intensity or depth of love for each other or at the same time ..in KP's case too we do see this fluctuation's..
Pratigya's character is actually very simplistic, and one dimensional ..she is not shown as a character who learns and evolves, who has different facets ..neither is she layered ..she has remained unchanged right from the inception of the show.. Place Krishna and Pratigya side by side..make a mental evolution graph ..you will notice..Krishna changing...while Pratigya remains the same at core.
