Suvi...y is someone so acting like Arnie boy nowadays...wants to fight only...chalo fine Jhaansi ki raani...lets get started...I was actually going to reply ur comments in order today - first the blue, then the grey...
But nahiii...yeh kisi ko manzoor nahi...First i fell off laughing reading the ABOVE IN BOLD AND RED...and then
Suvi...please tell someone...I did read both of your discussions yesterday - and it was logical and critically balanced...But i never had that in mind while doing the crooner...haye haye scolding...woh bhi jhaansi ki raani ko...meri itni jurrat
I have not yet put the BASHING post - kyunki mera bashing waala scene abhi tak show pe aaya hi nahi - its gonna come today na - Aur tab to main kisi ko chodne waali nahi - nahi GH,nahi Arshad,nahi Khushi -in line of fire !!!
Okay coming back to Khushi - because I wont get time to reply everyone individually - i'll say it here and its more or less the same thing I said in the Crooner - y do we not see from her POV...even I told Sathya in my comment on her post - check even she has said the same later in her post - beautiful analysis of Khushi's character - y should she go on with the silent treatment is wat my point was - wat did she achieve in that - he will oscillate in his love and anger - she still doesnt have any clues - she has faced the family's wrath - for her - the marriage is a question mark ...on top of that she has a leech running behind her all the time - she doesnt have anyone to vent out her feelings - so there maybe poles apart reactions from her - she is not a city-bred polished girl like Lavanya - for her its not about ASR's money - for her the acceptance and values are more important - wat defines her is "child-woman" - at times she takes the burden and mature decisions - at times for her is having the fun of it - its just pure innocence and like I have maintained both Arnav and Khushi are flawed characters - (Arnav aside here) - Khushi might make mistakes - but her heart is in right place - when she took a mature decision of
not telling Arnav about Shyam by the poolside on the first day - that has impacted her very existence at the moment which she is unaware ...And today in her childish strategies she is going to end up hurting Arnav again - but thats how the character Sketch of Khushi is - as of now CVs are walking on thin ice of balance - they have yet not crossed the line - but the day they do I wont hesitate to say !!!!
Just think for Khushi she has been trying every trick in the book to understand Arnav's decision from Day 1 of the marriage but nothing has worked - either he walks away, doesnt understand,end up hurting her or something - she left the home it didnt work - she started job it ddint work - she tried irritating him it didnt work - he ended up almost confessing - she went running behind to just get one answer - but he didnt melt - remember her words by the stairs - its just a riddle - so she chose to keep silence - but again it didnt work - he sent letters breaking her heart - she was silent that day also - but when Anjali came and opened the small window - she just jumped up again at one more or let me say one last chance to get back on him - if love annoys him - so be it - wait and watch the Game is yet not over - go read the lyrics of the song again - there is lot more to Khushi...
yess we might quoestion - on the breakfast,lunch part - that has been bad on her part - so she'll suffer for that - thats y i wrote on both the last two crooners - the game of fake love will fire back at her - its just the character depiction - no discontinuity in it - she is naive - she is making a mistake - like Arnav has made - she has been hurt more than him !!!!
And ya one more thing -on one day OTT, another day intense - thats possible in real life too - to face life - we do put up with lot of faces ( I have done that )- the only difference in 20 mins CVs cant elaborate or explain every action - ya thats y some days monologues or FBs are more handy...
Anyone and everyone is free to disagree with me...but thats how I read Khushi's character !!!
Dont you know why I behave like ASR?? You said yourself he behaves like a scorpion!! And hun.. dont blame me.. I warned you about the Jhansi ki Rani living on in me!!! And dont blame me for the bashing either, you got me into the mood the day before yesterday!! Goaded me into it!!! I was working on it the whole time since then!!! Here's the fruits of my labor!! And now you are promising a bashing crooner again..!!! Tell me.. do I prepare myself or stay calm?
Now I agree with your opinion and understanding of Khushi's portrayal!! But I have certain points to make..! The silent treatment.. was it actually a treatment? I dint think so!! It was a very natural reaction when you are hurt the way ASR had hurt her..! She was hurt and angry! And thus she decided to stay away from him..! I identified with that Khushi!!
She is a flawed character and she has made mistakes before.. we accepted that! But given the list of problems you have mentioned she has, dont you think the child woman is reacting a little weird? Yes.. we all have mood swings!! We all oscillate between tears and giggling every now and then!! Somebody ask me!! But the magnitude of the problems plays a major role in it!!! In her case, the enormity of it is not lost on us!! But on the CVs perhaps!!
I dont mind the ways in which she goes about finding the answers to the puzzle that her marriage is to her!! But there has to be a treatment to it!! Compare the scenes these days to what used to be there before Diwali..! Any scene.. not just Khushi's! The difference is in the treatment of the scenes!! Comedy was also there in the pre diwali scenes, acidity and dhak dhak and all, or on the nainitaal trip!! How I keep replaying those scenes!!
I have a hard time identifying with this new childer than childish Khushi!! I have seen her dignity when ASR announced her marriage plans with Lavanya on Diwali night!! I have seen her care and concern the very day when after the heartbreak and 'get out', she still stops her mother from serving him sweets! I have seen her breaking down into tears at the heartbreak that day! I have seen her self respect and the fire of the woman scorned in the guest house scene or the boutique scene! I have seen her thoughtfulness in making sugarless mitthai or stopping ASR from having spicy daal even after such an insult!! I have seen her LOVE even when Lavanya was around!! These are all with respect to ASR!! WIth others also, we have seen her in a responsible, mature avataar!! She was the breadwinner of her family, an upright one at that!! You remember Naaniji's words after the cocktail party? Khushi bitiya mein apne umra ke logo se kahin zyada samajhdaari hai! Where is all that??
There are other issues too!! Shouldnt Khushi be shown thinking about how to handle Shyam? His growing advances! Where does Shyam keep disappearing to? Where is Buaji and Khushi's parents concern over her living in the same house as the creep, or even ASR's concern over it for that matter! Where is Bauji?? He doesnt wonder why his favorite child behaved like that? Where is the old bro-sis love and the scenes.. I used to cry watching them earlier!! Where is the relationship, the sharing between Payal and Khushi, living in the same house, both having problems?
I have to say this Debu.. of late, the thing that is consistent in the show is the upheaval in the tracks!! We are also here for entertainment but given the attachment we have with the show.. we tolerate much of the shortcomings in logic!! But they cant keep playing with our sentiments.. I start getting involeved with the intensity and then Whamm!!! in my face comes the comedy!! It confuses me!! I have to sit and decide after the episode whether I liked it and how much I liked it!!
Earlier.. I simply worshiped the show!!
