I am new to this forum, but certainly not to India-forums.
A few days back I found myself hooked to this show for a lot of reasons. I really don't know what attracted me in the first place because my reaction on watching an episode around a month back was - "who watches this show ?"
And guess what, I wsa doing exactly the same after just a few episodes.
I resisted hard even coming to this forum, as I have a history of getting hooked to a forum before.But Today I Had to !!!!
I am mesmerised by the Rajasthani backdrop. I happen to hail originally from Jaipur and Ajmer, which is at half and hour distance from Pushkar. I have been to Pushkar numerous times and I am in awe of the place and the premise in the show.
I saw the episode last night and was deeply moved.
Suraj is, on one hand, trying to read what is written about her wife with her photograph in an English newspaper. And he even regrets not completing his education. Sandhya, on the the other hand, has managed to secure such high marks but cannot rejoice in the glory. She cannot even share this with her husband.
People congratulate Suraj for his extra-ordinarily meritorious wife and he is zapped. He doesn't know whether he should feel happy and proud or feel sad as he knows his family's views about an educated DIL.
The Lead has emoted extremely well and I really felt for the character and his state of mind.
He is confused, shattered, worried and amidst all this...he doesn't know which side to take. He understands Sandhya as much as he does his family and almost knows about what the response would be.
Amazing !!! Written, presented, acted, characterised really well.
All in all...an awesome show.
( And the pleasant surprise was Jaya...JustJ...that I have had the privilege to know ... ...Wow, another reason for staying here
