I am a first time poster of this forum, so apologies if I make any mistakes...
I love this show, however today's episode, for me, seemed like hypocritical at it's best!
I am not being biased just because I am a woman -
Lucky's mother comes and Lucky becomes childish; to the extent that he refuses to comprehend or acknowledge any kind of decision making skills - even if the decision is being made for him or on behalf of him. His childishness increases to the extent that he, quite literally, throws his wife out! Those who have been following the show could see that Lucky was at wrong. Understandable that Sweety is stern and keep going on about education, but have we seen the children complain?
So Lucky further more, immaturely feels that he is doing Sweety a favour by making an attempt to bring Sweety back home. Even there his own decision making skills fails him. Sweety's father then starts to blame Sweety and calling her self respect, ego!
And today - Lucky's entire perception gayi tel lene.. when he actually started to believe that he made the effort to bring his wife back home, but she refused to come with him! He even spoon fed this theory to his son! Till today, he has not, does not and will not get it that he was wrong! The icing on the cake was when one woman (Lucky's mother) is telling her own son how she failed to bring him up properly to the extent that her son can't keep his won family together! And then another woman (Sweety) comes back home, all of a sudden delusional that her self respect actually was her ego. While the man (Lucky) suddenly realises he was wrong! How did he come to that conclusion?
Then throughout the semi quarrels, he kept repeating "ok, ok, it's all my fault" - as if he's doing everyone a favour! The writers built up this entire wife versus husband, man versus woman, girl versus boy thing but the climax was pretty disheartening and honestly felt like a slap on the face! And the biggest cop out was reuniting Lucky Sweety with the son running away from home and that too, to see the girl he loves!
Please do not think this is some feminist post. I would have written the same if the man was in the woman's shoes! Anyway, I'll shut up now...
