as u said ...the story of shiva his leelas...were presented a lot better in other shows too...but none has showed the love life of shiva...
DKDM...IS DOING THAT
It is a mythological show, because:
1) Shiva and Sati are Hindu Gods and any show that depicts their story, whether it be romance or other stories, is a mythological show. How can you say DkDM is not a mythological when even the CVs categorize it like that?
2) Non-mythological or non-historical shows are based off of fictional stories, and Shiva/Sati are not fictional characters. They are Gods everyone prays to.
Om Namah Shivay depicted the love story of Shivji and Devi Parvathi as well, and it showed it in an accurate, decent way without adding unnecessary fluff or making Parvathi seem human.
It's fine, I know many members in this forum are looking for a modernized version of Shiv-Sati story which includes passion and lots of romance like they find it Star Plus shows, even if that is not appropriate to show between Gods. If you guys are enjoying it, that's fine, but for viewers like me who want to enjoy the show for Lord Shiva's leelas, it's a bit difficult to digest such scenes because for me, it's an insult to depict Devi Sati in such a manner.
I'm not trying to criticize the show for no reason. I love mythological shows and want to enjoy this show for romance too, not just for the philosophical lessons...but more olden-day romance that would be appropriate for the Satya Yuga in which this story happened. The romance scenes in this serial seem more like Kali Yuga romance.
I like the actors and the settings and the overall devotion of this serial. I think the CVs are doing a really good job in that, but the romance and depiction of Sati and even Shivji during the romance scenes needs lots and lots of improvement in order to attract other mythological fans. This isn't the only show to show romance in mythology. Other shows, like Ramayan, Jai Shri Krishna, Krishna Leela, and all of them showed Ram-Sita and Radha-Krishna romance in an appropriate manner. Even DBSK, which became a flop now, showed Rukmini-Krishna well in its initial episodes. No one else seems to have a problem depicting Gods' love stories, that I don't understand why the CVs are taking a humanistic directing in depicting Shiv-Sati romance. Even Ram-Sita, Radha-Krishna, Rukmini-Krishna, Krishna-Satyabhama, were all human avatars of Gods, but their romance is never depicted so humanistically.
