Since comments of peeping toms and voyerism is being repeatedly made, I feel the need to clarify. I don't think people are being voyeristic because they would like to see a sizzling scene between their favourite couple. Sizzling does not translate in to blatantly explicit scenes. All they want is to be shown something exciting so that their imagination can work out the rest. There wasn't even a hug or a kiss (not even on the forehead) during the act for crying out loud. As to GC or DD feeling uncomfortable, I don't think that issue is even valid considering that they have done hotter scenes together in this very same show than the one shown that day. This is a visual medium and there are bound to be expectations of a visual treat especially when the channel and PH have hyped so much about it in the media.
Okay Opti tell me once when u have seen Gurmeet and Drashti giving a proper kiss,??havent we forever complained about kisses on the ornaments, light feathered kisses and fatherly kisses...it is very clear that they are okay with hugging and touching but not kissing... and the fact that they should not behave like this and comply...as i said we cant live their lives or take decisions for them right???? we cant complain for this one aspect when they are giving us more than we can expect in all the other aspects!!!I agree their could have been a little bit more and the reaction would have not been soo bad but again as i said why would the show deliberately want to ruin this moment which has been awaited sooo long...if they have quoted they have reasons which cannot be disclosed we should believe them...
I don't think DD has a problem. She has already kissed him on the cheek. GC too has of late kissed her hand. He has kissed her eyelids, forehead, hair etc. Shoddy camera angles and editing may not have given the necessary effect but that does not mean the actors have not done such scenes because they have. Why would they want to ruin their own show? That is a question only they can answer. Why did they continue with Dev redemption track even when no one wanted it? Earlier AS was blamed for refusing to play a negative role but he has quit and I doubt SS has such hangups since he has already played such negative roles and is darned good at it. So why continue with Dev's saintly acts and even introduce a love track for him?Yet they continue with this Dev-Nandini track though I doubt anybody really wants such a track. Is there any logic in his continuing to live in Beeji's house while Balwant lives as a driver so that he can win over the family as Maan? If they cannot disclose a reason, it is as good as not existing for me. What good does it do even if it does?
Yes, the focus was on tender display of love and not on passion but then a simple conversation between the two to place the context of the scene would have ensured that the viewers knew what the score was. Maan says that he wants to become a papa the previous day (to a 18-19 year old who had recently gone through a dreadful MC). The girl's earlier pregnancy was more an accident brought about by a fake marriage. She decided to keep the baby, not because she was dying to be a mother but because she did not want to deprive that innocent life its right to live. Unfortunately things were not to be and she loses the baby. Now many of us felt that a replacement for that baby by getting her pregnant again is not the way to go about it.
Very true...i just feel this line has a deeper meaning and is a hint to the future track they have in mind...nevertheless i too agree that an 18 year old girl would not wanna become pregnant again soo soon...all i can say to this is we can just wait and watch!!!
If they are paving the way for the future track ( of maybe fertility issues) then it is really pathetic. There are so many differnt things they can explore before going the baby route again. can they not explore how Geet pursues her education with Maan's help or maybe goes into business with him? We have still not been told about Maan's past with his parents. That can be an interesting track too. There is the mysterious Vicky. They can show how Geet finds him and gets him into the family by appeasing Maan's anger against him. Everything need not be tied to the reproductive organs.
The papa reference could just be a euphemism for intimacy and going by Geet's response in the tabela, she too seems to see it that way because she did not say she wants to become a mama. But for someone who sees both the episodes back to back and does not bother to think so deeply (after all the show is for entertainment), it may seem like the hero wanting another baby, the heroine agreeing to it and the hero then proceeding in the baby making process even when the heroine looks bone tired. If only they elaborated a little on what Maan really wanted to convey by that papa line and how Geet reacted to that, things could have been put in better perspective. Remember they have not had a proper conversation about the baby's loss after the MC. first Geet was grieving and then there was the misunderstanding between Maaneet. finally they are back together but the baby loss has still not been dealt with by them. The act then would be viewed as a celebration of love (which it was supposed to be) rather than a means to an end (the end being the baby, as it came across to many viewers). So the gaps in narration and execution left many disappointed and frustrated.
I agree 100 percent to this...Monologues of the characters and matured conversation between the 2 characters is definitely a huge point of concern...they really need to show that...but whenever they are in the same frame they end up showing some romantic scene which is drooled by the audience and i think they conclude that this is what everyone wants...all i can say is i hope that now that they have had the SR the relationship will focus on conversations and not the romantic teasing sessions...
I dont agree with your last point. Romance and teasing goes on throughout a couple's life and does not stop with consummation. I've been married for 16 years and my hubby and I still tease each other and we have our romantic moments too. They can show matured conversations when the need arises and intersperse it with romance and teasing. Nobody will complain.
