Instead of planning their day out, why couldn't we have a scene where Jeevika asks to look at Manvi's bruises? Why couldn't we have tender Behna moments after Jeevika found out about the symptoms? Instead we get half hearted scenes which do nothing for the main story!
My initial doubt turned out right. This Mumbai trip wasn't really for the illness after all! Why bother using it as an excuse?
I don't watch eastenders but I remember when I saw one of my
Favourite characters in Hollyoaks die of cancer, it was handled so realistically! But in our Indian shows, we are too eager to please certain fan groups! But there is a timing for everything and unfortunately cvs arent getting that ATM :/
I can rant and rave about the looney CVs and their half assed script all day :L
It's all in the pursuit of fleshing out the characters is what I'm putting it down too. The mistake the CVs initially made about delaying the cancer truth three months is coming back to bite them in the butt. It's just messed up ALL the timings - like really it's been a full year since the Virika marriage which means Manvi's had cancer for more than that and in that amount of time only TWO chemo sessions... Wow, that's gonna do her a WHOLE lotta good.
So I'm not gonna complain about the irrelevancy of the JeeMan-ess of this week and what will be next week because at the end of the day the CVs here have shot themselves in their own foot for the whole 'Virman LS 2014' thing. There's no escaping it now, it will happen and in that process, I fear that the essence of this show and the core issue is lost which most likely will happen. - PS: This isn't having a go at Virman shippers but more the incompitance of CVs; i.e. there's nothing wrong in wanting your couple to get together but in the big picture, yup everythings totally messed up.
I mean you said it there; what's the importance of Jeevika gonna be the next week other than a social commentary on Manvi's growing love for Virat and possibly opening her eyes to it all. Surely there must be something else? Heres hoping they actually have some sort of meaningful scenes next week.
Btw, are you on about Steph's cancer? That literally was a tear jerker. I wish some realism was kept in Indian TV coz it would just bring it to a whole new level. Like the 'Satyamev Jayate' is kicking off in India and it to some extent reminds me of Jezza Kyle. If something like that could be a real cultural milestone, why can't a show like this be where the storyline is not so unique but where the story is told so emotionally and accurately be a turning point for Indian TV?
Your last sentence says it all: TIMING! They've messed it up too much for it to actually fall back onto track. I really wanted to make a post about the timings of EHMMBH but haven't found the time (ironic much). Everythings too out of sync which means everythings really out of place hence to some degree the cancer seems too fanciful to seem real and the Virman LS seems to be happening to quickly and Virika are still stuck in honeymoon stage... Weird :S
With all due respect to the fangroups, when we all began watching this show, we all adored our respective couples right? This was without any input or demands from us fans. So obviously we were loving what we saw so my question is, why HURRY the process just because you don't have the patience? Why not try to see the bigger picture and understand that there is much more to this show than romance. As much as I love JM, I've never demanded a particular scene or moment for them because this is the writer's job not mine. I may end up offending people but the constant ask for jealousy tracks, intensity, rain dances etc etc makes me angry. Have you not already seen that in countless other serials and movies? Let the writers do their job like they had originally planned to. I guess it goes to show the weakness of the cvs who give in so easily. Or maybe I've grown too old and want to see something more than just romance :\
:( Yep Steph! I loved her character so much but to expect such sensitivity in Indian shows is asking for too much. I really thought the hospital scenes after J finds out the truth will be memorable and very heartbreaking but the first scene itself was such a downer.
Come to think of it, there is a slight rush in the VM story. We've only seen obvious signs from Manvi in the past week or so and next week she's going to realise it too. Even that I have no problem with but if it's going to sideline the MAIN story then I don't see how the cvs intend to proceed. Vireka need some drama lol! They have a few disagreements but then they're back to their honeymoon phase. Surely there must be more to them then the blush?!
