Everyone here is a fan of Choti Bahu and thinks on the lines of improving the show in his/her own ways dear. I am talking abt the so called Radev love story shown in Chotibahu. We all wanted cb back only for Avina to be presented as Radev and also for The eternal love story of Radev. . Eternal love story of Radev means, their love story not any thign else. Eternal ness of love doesn't lie with in marriage. If so then there won't be any more romeo - juliet or parvathi-devdas.The start of cb was great that Radev were bonded in the childhood itself , That was really a great start to cb. And also after the grown up Radev came the start episodes, where Radhika rush when she listen the flute or she feels his ehsaas or she gets attracted to him were really awesome. Those scenes gave us that bond between Radev , that ehsaaas between them. Buit after every thing ruined, Radhika's love or Dev's so called love was put into dim. Radhika was later never shown as a lover but as a good responsible wife,okay leave it we may agree wiht it too. But Dev when was he shown to be loving Radhika?????? I wonder because, he was always attracted to Radhika which he assumed to be love. (sorry friends my post may be offending, but I need that chance to blurt) If ever Dev loved Radhika he would have never feared for his obligations. Our Cb1 Dev never feared for all those obligations , he was strong when it comes to the love. Dev when started to love Radhika he realised and took off her along with him, then also he didn't stand up but as a coward kidnapped her. A lover will never kidnap his lover. Whats the love there??????
Well, here...i have to agree with Misti's points. Although yes in a way, i did feel disappointed with whatever they were showing...i didn't expect Dev of CB2 to be Dev of CB1. Dev of CB1 had a whole family with loving people whereas Dev of CB2 was brought up as an orphan. Dev fearing for accepting his love and not going ahead without any reservations was one of the main crux points of the story. Whatever happened because Dev was not bold enough to stand up and say that "He loves Radhika and that he got married to her in childhood" But that was expected because he was brought up in such an environment. He thought it would be better if Radhika got married to Rohan, the next RP in line. He loved Radhika a lot but didn't have the courage to tell it openly...but wanted her to have the best. He thought Radhika was being naive in waiting for a man like him for 12 years. He thought Radhika was not in love with him but was just fulfilling the duty since they were married off! So his own assumptions that Radhika was being naive let to the situation of him almost pushing her away. Thereafter, when she followed him to home, pretending to be Rohan's fake wife, again...he tried pushing her away because he felt it would be better for her to stay as Rohan's wife. However, his stance changed the day he realized Rohan's true intentions! Thus he was forced to kidnap her. All said, my main grudge during all those above mentioned scenes were the presentation. The story could have been made more likeable, had the characters remained true to themselves (i am mentioning everyone's character here) and had they given more space/ time for audience to understand the lead character's perspective. The presentation part was lacking here. Plus the Fake wife track was brought forth again which basically pushed away people. Though I didn't find it a reason to feel disappointed...but yes, again, was severly disappointed with the presentation!
Even when they elope(so called) they enjoyed those moments forgetting the whole world, whats the point there. Real Radhika of CB! never thought that, she never even tried to smile with Dev as long as Vishaka was there and her marriage infront of society didn't happen. Why that strong Dev or strong Radhika are lacking in cb2. Of course u people may say that love story didn't garner trps, but in what way it was presented. There was no one episode with out flaws. If so then whats need to do it, and how will it garner trps. Even cb1 also was a complete immense love story and it ruled trp charts, shayad u people are forgetting.
I didn't have any problems again with the kidnapping part...but they rushed in lots of places here. Things went at a "Express" Speed which is usually not appreciated by the masses. However, again, Radhika's stand during those period was quite predictable according to CB2's Radhika.
And also after return part was nothign less than ridiculous. There were many illegal things shown which ruin the name of love story if ever it was called. In what way it was love story???????/haan. If ever it was a love story and there was lvoe between Radev, Dev would never had been doubted Radhika nor had been he Raised his hand on Radhika. If evr it was love Dev wouldn't have been that silent, when Radhika was misssing for one month. If ever it was a love story Dev wouldn't have feel that ehsaas of Radhika in r/k, but he was completely normal wearing jokes wiht Kanha. And now it was a shoa completely of Bharka's punishment or Kanha -balram convo or Kanha hithopadesh to Dev or Kanha praising Dev as a great man. In what way he will be a great man . Does writers think great man was that who tries to slap his wife with out knowing the truth or the one who puts sindoor on other woman, in brief anger wiht his wife.
Until now my main grudge was presentation but henceforth my main grudge became the illogical things being shown in the show. This is when i started protesting against all this openly. When Dev was announced the next RP...several hidden skeletons came out of the cupboard...but DDjee never had to answer any question from anyone! Not even Dev?? Why didn't Dev ask about his mother? Why didn't he wonder that his DDJee cheated him? DDjee and Dev shared a good relation. DDjee did love Dev. He did bring the child home, give him shelter and took care of him, educated him, gave him the love of a parent...but still he snatched Dev from his mother, which was a wrong thing on his part. Why didn't Dev want to search for his mother? Nothing on those lines were shown! Even Rohan's truth came out in a jiffy and then...all Dev wanted was to marry Radhika!! There is nothing wrong in wishing to marry your lady love...but a normal human under such conditions would have sat and thought about his life...how his mother would be, if she is alive...would have tried questioning his DDjee. But nothing was shown, rather RaDev's marriage preparations started in a jiffy! And then we all know what happened!! One after the another illogical things continued!
Coming to the current phase...Although Dev is a loving husband, he failed in trusting his wife. There is nothing wrong in Kanha appreciating Dev's love for his wife...because Dev's love is for sure...pious and above all...but repeatedly putting Dev on a pedestal is wrong because Dev doesn't deserve it! And there is nothing wrong if he doesn't deserve it. Dev of CB2 is a normal human, who has made some grave mistakes and hasn't yet realized it. Fine with me. It happens. But again, Kanha is repeatedly proclaiming that Dev can be the best husband a woman can get...blah! Is it? Yes, he is a loving husband, but is he a husband who trusts his wife? (Let his growing up, influence of DDjee on him and PF be aside) No, he didn't trust his wife when she needed him the most! So he is not the ideal husband!
and then going to Kanha This was the most ridiculous Kanha found ever by me(atleast in my P.O.V.) I better like to ask cv's folding my hadns that If u don't know who kanha is, or if u don't know what is krishna tathva please stay away, don't ridicule Kanha. Cb had world wide viewers where some of them especilly watch ot for the devotional points of cb. Those people don't know any thign abt Hinduism or our gods, they will think what u show is the real hinduism. PPlease stop the comedy on Kanha, he wasn't a comic character.
Sometimes the Kanha does function properly but sometimes he doesn't. His questions and conversations with Balram sometimes confuses me to the core. The problem again is in dialogues. If given complete lines, perhaps, audience would be able to connect more.
And also Upto now If i rewind back I can no where find Lovestory i this cb2 except for starting one month. I think the writers and zee are very interested in ruining the show and Radev name so that we will never ask for CB3. But cv's please atleast now we ask u to solve this mess and focus on ur leads, Radev and their love which we want. We promise that we won't ask for CB3 but please show what we want in CB2. Please cv's .
ps: My post may be offending but the=is was not only my view but also was the view of many other cbieans, and i blurted out.
