This is my first post on this forum. Although I visit frequently, I always refrain myself from posting because of some of the fans on this forum who go absolutely insane (although show it rather subtly) by a certain character's entry. Anyways, not commenting on that - or there will be chaos.
I have been watching this show from the beginning (well, to be specific from the 2nd episode) and absolutely enjoy every bit of it! Believe it or not, I did not quite know who Karanvir Bohra was back then when I watched it - I do remember seeing him before though and then it finally hit me - Kismat Konnection. Moral of the story, what attracted me to the show was Viraj and his complex character. The antics of Viraj were a sight to see and very entertaining as well! (Please just save the "Oh how can you watch the atyachaar on Jhanvi! You do know it's based on reality right?" - I watch it for entertainment which Saubhagya provides. The fact that it happens in real is a different matter altogether).
I completely agree with the article. Anti-heroes or heroes with grey shades are much more fun to watch then the boring-doodh-peta-adarsh-can-do-no-wrong-perfect-in-every-way man. The latter, I have realized, loses my interest in watching them very quickly. Anti-heroes with their multi-layer personality brings entertainment to the show in every way. And then, as the article said, it is so much fun to watch that anti-hero fall in love.
I started watching Karanvir Bohra's "Prem" from KZK a few weeks back by a recommendation from a friend, and I have to say... I don't think there was any better Prem out there. Seriously! His attitude was kick-ass which made Prem-Mukti's love story all the more beautiful and powerful.
I just have to say, Jhanvi can go to her savior if she wants, all I know is that I watch this show for Karanvir and mainly for Viraj. He is what makes the show entertaining. I seriously hope, if ever his character or track in the show ends, the show also ends. I would hate to see this "different" show on domestic violence turn into a sopping love story soon after.
Wow! That must have been my longest post in a while!
**A minor comment to the inclusion of Arnav Singh Raizada in the article. I'm sorry. He is anything but an anti-hero or one with grey shades. His antics are so cartoonish it's embarrassing.
