I can totally see why you feel that way but I'll try to explain how I see it. The one dialogue of Jeevika about Manvi kind of summed up to me how these two sisters work:
'Apni didi ko samajhti hai lekin duniya ko kyun nahin samajhti?'
i.e. She understands her sister but not how the world works.
That's the difference between Jeevika and Manvi. Being the mature and responsible one, she knows how the world works. Yes she has promised her sister that she would never leave her (that will be the case anyway) and for now it has been conveniently been forgotten because in the real world girls have to part from their families after marriage. Manvi has understood that now so they've both have had to make peace with it. But from what we know and heard, these two won't be seperating anyway and even though some of us maybe feeling that Jeevika is not returning the same depth, it will be her who makes sure Manvi remains with her.
On one hand Jeevika is said to not love Manvi as much as Manvi loves her and on the other hand I see people thinking their love is too obsessive because Jeevika ends up bringing Manvi in everywhere. She went to the extent of suggesting that Manvi stays with her in Chandigarh.
With Beeji she feels a sense of obligation because she brought them two up so naturally she silently obeys every order of hers. With Manvi, Jeevika is herself. She will shout at her, tell her to shut up because she knows she can get away with it. I said somewhere else how Jeevika kind of takes Manvi's presence in her life for granted because they've always been together so for now she's just worried about what will happen to Manvi after she's gone but soon she will realise how alone she will be without Manvi.
I really think any complaints regarding this matter will be solved next week :) It's only been a month so far and the real story hasn't even begun. What's wrong with Manvi? How are the sisters going to stay together? That is the main theme of the show and so far we haven't really got to the main plot.
You only realise someones true worth when they leave you but right now they're both together and living in the moment. It's what happens when the wedding nears and happens that the relationship will be in full force.
haha, yeah made such a long post after so many days. haath mein boht khujli ho rahi thi na
i liked ur take on this reemz. i guess one two minor points i'd just say are:
@blue: imho, i saw that as one of those offhand comments that a person just makes. to pacify oneself orr the other. i mean, if she had meant this seriously, then she'd have pursued the comment more right. i dunno, i guess for me , i just saw it as an offhand comment.
@red: loved wht u said her. and i guess i cud see that as a definitely possible reason for why we havent seen that depth from jeevika. becuz she takes manvi for granted. while manvi on the other hand knows that she's about the lose jeevika. hmm. i feel, if i was in jeevika's place, the word marriage wud itself make me think of having the leave, which wud've made me think of my sister, which wud've made me so depressed. but i guess with jeevika's character, that realisation and association of marriage with leaving manvi wud come later...
i like the points u madee!
though, i wud have liked to see the theme being portrayed from the start, rather then seeing jeevika all of a sudden realise "oh i CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT MANVIII!!!".. but then, that's just my pov. and as long as this point is brought out, i'm good.
and hey, i love dabbu, but i need a scene where jeevika realises the meaning of having to leave JUST MANVI, not her whole family.
