Actually, I like that he is imperfect. This story is better in the sense as both Radhika and Dev know the entire truth and telling everything to each other. Their beliefs and obligations are different and causing the distance between them. So in the end it is not other people who are affecting their relationship but only their personal actions. But despite his imperfection, the basic nature of Dev should be tempered with and they did it during the fire scene when he hesitated to save Radhika. He may be angry at Radhika but he would always come for her when she is in danger. In fact, I loved Dev in CB1 in the first year but found his reactions very unrealistic in the second year when the truth about the first marriage came out. They should have shown him protecting Radhika from other PF members and Shastri family, but they needed to show his sense of betrayal and loss of faith in Radhika for her actions. They made him too perfect when he forgave her in five minutes.
I actually want him to lose Radhika because he has made a lot of mistakes and deserves to lose her for a while in order to repent in a true sense. One loses a valuable thing in life when they don't appreciate that thing and take care of it. So if creatives are making it about Kanha's leela, then that would be his punishment.
Why6 I agree with you regarding maintaining the core of Dev's and Rad's characters
For Dev, I really saw the whole fire incident a couple of times and my reading of the scene was that he was not hesitant, but surprised... the first time he went in he did not see Rads ... however, the whole thing was shot badly if different people are interpreting it so differently ... also, i did not like chenu holding his dad back ... chenu is a big boy and a brother and should have gone in to save Rads ... they could have shown him falling down as he ran to save her and mansa held back by his wife and daughter ... all in all, not shown well at all ... if people are interpreting him as being hesitant, that is almost an anti hero
The reason i liked Dev from season 1 was bcos, apart from his unconditional love for a young orphan girl, he was idealistic to a fault, very respectful, did not believe in blindly following superstitions and was protective of women in general, not just rads ... i liked him grieving over killing vish's baby and did not like it when he slapped and dragged vish out of the house ... those were times when i think they brought him down for the sake of TRPs. As Abhay, yes they dumbed him down which was not great ... but more than him not believing rads (which is why most people hated him) i did not like that he slept with rads and went chasing after her when he thought he was married to kanika ... those were moral boundaries that they never showed him crossing when he thought he was married to vish.
Again, I am glad that Dev is not perfect here ... but as you said they should be careful and not make him lose some of his basic character traits ... lot of people like his character and they should not make them lose that connection. I do hope they show what he is thinking
I definitely agree that it would be good for both Dev and Rads character growth if they split temporarily after Rohan recovers ...
CB1 should have included punishment of Amma and Dev mad at Rads for the marriage lie as tracks ... hope this time around they show justice
