hats off!! a very well written post!
i completely agree with u and Dots!
CVs are forgetting that the main reason why most fans are annoyed with DEK is not MonAsh but lack of any progress in the story after Moniya entered the Mahal! Moniya's character is very hard to relate if you compare in the earlier episodes! Creatives should know that before ManVeer or MonAsh or any other track the basic concept of the DEK is a journey of a naive free spirited girl living in the chawl Moniya to a royal princess Mantaya! Moniya/Manyata is the main character and the story revolves around her transformation but unfortunately ever since Moniya has entered the palace she is shown to be suffering from multiple personality disorder!
Moniya-Akash track should have been developed properly if they wanted it to be shown such an integral part of moniya's life! Akash's character lacks depth he is shown to be a lost soul most of the times and they expect the audience to sympathize with him!
Today's audience is very smart & demanding if they don't get what they want they will just quit watching the show! In this day & age where audience has access to various channels for entertainment why would they want to waste their time & energy on a show that leaves them dissatisfied?
