Yeah especially this part:

By the light of golden treasure
Was he the one causing pain
With his careless dreaming?"
I just read the lyrics, he is a horrible man, but what a great actor right?
Abhaas Mehta is a great actor. Whenever he's doing Shyam you as a viewer feel repulsed particularly when he succeeds as a villain in whatever he sets out to do in any episode. I think this particular actor totally gets the role and he does his job well. The negative reaction to Shyam is proof of that. Mr. Mehta is doing a good job.
It's like the character of Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs, he was so bad that you liked watching him but felt scared and repulsed at the same time. I don't think people like watching Shyam on their screens but the actor does achieve his goal of having people hate him.
I was listening to the first Unforgiven song by Metallica, then I listened to the second one but the third one instantly made me think of Shyam how, he would consider Khushi to be his golden treasure and how he would be without any kind of guilt or conscience. I don't think Shyam would ask for forgiveness, because then he'd have to examine his whole life which has been a lie. Which is why I thought the song totally applied to this character. As the first Metallica Unforgiven song main line said and I quote "I dub thee unforgiven". So too is Shyam he will remain unforgiven.
