Its just hopefully people are able to adjust to a different approach taken by the CV in their story telling.
Honestly, I would prefer a show that has a short but SENSIBLE run than a show that rules the trp charts and run forever but has NO story to its name. So while I agree with you that romance and mostly "hawt romance" rules these days, I am okay if it doesn't rule in this show. I am okay if this show has a decent run - a small run but a MATURE run. Maybe I'm just so sick of watching shows turn to trash, all in bid to win this trp race k now I am willing to have a show that doesn't allow trps to dictate it's content. And if that means this show will have a small stint because of it, I'll say it will be a stint worth writing home about.
Plus, the different approach to romance (as you've mentioned) in this show isn't something that no one would be appealed by. Everything finds a target audience and clearly this show has already started to find it's target. We may not get the fangirls other shows garner.. But I am not so sure that that would be a bad thing..
I'd take a different approach to romance - a more REALISTIC approach to romance OVER flying dupattas, trip-catch scenes and five-minute long stares any day!
