So I'm totally enjoying this new show, like everyone on this forum. However, what draws me to this show is not the chemistry between the sisters, rather it's the chemistry between Viren/Jeevika and especially Virat/Maanvi.
Don't get me wrong, the sister bonding shown is cute but I do find it a bit unbelievable. I understand that they lost their parents so Jeevika looks at Maanvi in a maternal way but I still feel that sisters don't act the way they do. I have two sisters myself (both elder to me), who I love and cherish. That being said, whenever we are together, we don't just hug each other and wipe each others teary faces. We bicker, joke, and do nautanki together. They do also reprimand me immediately if I do something blatantly wrong. They don't quietly watch a spectacle unfold if I acting completely irresponsible, such as when Maanvi pretended to be Jeevika when Viren first came to see her. I know that a small part of Maanvi may not have wanted the wedding herself initially as she did not want to be separated from Maanvi but this was not as important to her as making sure that Beeji was happy. Although she was unhappy with the circumstances, she still went along with Maanvi's childish behaviour, making her equally responsible for what went on.
The relationship shared between sisters isn't perfect in reality, but that's what makes this relationship so beautiful. Despite the constant bickering and fights, the love between sisters is unlike anything in the world. I personally don't even remember the last time that I hugged one of my sisters (and she still lives in this house) and Jeevika and Maanvi can't let go of each other ever episode!!
Now again, I am not bashing the show, the CVs, or the actors, I'm simply expressing a small displeasure of mine. I feel that shows need to be more realistic nowadays! They need to look at real relationships and families to understand how they actually work. Do modern and educated families such as Viren's, still follow every single "parampara" so rigidly? WHO DOESN'T LIGHT UP PATAKAS ON DIWALI??
Ok, I think I'm going waaay off tangent now, but I do feel relieved. This was an excellent opportunity to vent.
Your comments are more than welcome. If you have a sister, is your bond with her just as it is portrayed in the show? I'm curious to know if I am the only one that sees things like this!!
P.S. Please ignore any typos or if something doesn't make sense here and there. I don't see the point of editing something if it was meant to be a vent because those were words straight out of the heart
