Why do the CVs create these characters? eThe CVs apparently create these Angels-on-Earth, impossibly selfless characters as main leads to supposedly portray them as the ideal Indian women who hold the quintessential Indian values.
However, they stretch the paradigm of goodness to such absurd and irritating point that people start sympathizing and identifying with the lesser good and negative characters. While I do not support Gauri, I am finding Anandi quite over the top with her goodness, especially after Jagya moved back to Mumbai. I will not want any woman to be like her and spoil her life uselessly like the way Anandi is doind. But there are many people who not only hate these 'positive' characters but are rather die hard fans of Rashi, Tapasya and Gauri. They will passionately defend and try to justify selfishness,lying, insensitivity, cruelty, violence, jealousy, manipulation and in Gauri's case, even illegal relationship with a married man and yet they have no patience for what is supposedly meant to be virtues. They can go to any length to defend the flaws in those characters and will find justification for every 'bad' deed they do but they will not tolerate the flaws of goodness. I do not mean to be judgmental about any fan group, but I am just trying to ruminate why many people find the paragon of virtue so unbearable and instead have immense patience and consideration for the negative/ not so good character. Is it the hatred or irritation with the sacrificial main lead that drive them to the lesser good or evil characters? Maybe because the negative traits do make those characters more human and hence more relatable than the absurdly good characters. It's really ironic-----for by etching out an impossibly virtuous character, these serials are actually generating hatred for those traits of virtue, which in moderation should be practiced by all human beings.
good to see u. It is painful to watch characters which are good to death. My liking for Anandi has changed and now it is bordering hatred, A's stupidity does not make G look better. She is equally stupid. In fact both are giving competition in proving who can get more dumb in life. Such pathetic female characters are irritating and even sometimes disgusting to watch. The only likeable female character in BV is Gehna. She is traditional, obedient follows customs but has lot of self respect and has the ability to think herself as a woman before thinking abt being daughter, wife, mother and DIL. All the other female characters in BV are worthless and Anandi and Gauri are the worst characters in BV's recent times...
I feel there is a difference between being good, virtuous and living as a dumb person without self respect...Unfortunately all good characters in serial world are too stupidly good. Even in SNS Gopi is so intolerably stupid that whenever she gets tricked by Raashi I don't feel sympathy for her but feel like giving 2 slaps from my side. I dislike gauri and Anandi equally now...and at this rate CVs will make me develop a soft corner for jagya
