Hi! Your post is very well written and your point is acute. It seems that the director of this serial is hellbent on portraying anyone who is against him, as extremely horrible people. Domestic abuse should never be taken as lightly as it is being taken in this serial.
But then again, look what else has been condoned in this serial: rape, beatings, attempted murder etc. I lost hope in this serial when after Maha was raped, everyone still insisted that she should live with Pandi and Pandi was subsequently shown to be the 'good guy' in a sense. That to me is utter rubbish. No women who goes through such traumatic events, especially when she had no control over her mind...should ever be portrayed as Maha was in this serial (i.e. the 'villi').
As for cleaner serials, I would recommend either Saravanan Meenakshi or Pirivom Santhipom on Vijay TV. Both have a clear storyline and the chemistry between the leads are amazing (okay, I might be a bit biased). But best of all, there are rarely any domestic abuse type scenes (in fact I have never seen any such scenes) or filthy, disgusting dialogues. Instead they usually have romance or comedic scenes. I would also recommend Thendral (which is another Sun TV serial) to you but it has more filthy dialogues as opposed to abuse type scenes (though there are a few).
Good luck watching this serial and may god help you tune out all the inappropriate content they are broadcasting!
