well the answer lies in the fact that this is after all a television soap in primetime Hindi and the showmakers have to contest with shows  where there is a high voltage drama. Staying true to scriptures and potraying the purest of everything simply will not sell. Everything boils down to this: money. Even the tale of the Gods.

@Tanni: I totally agree

@ Krishna, you have to take this show with a HUGE fist full of salt (a pinch won't do! LOL)

Every day I read "doubts" about "yogyata" and "pichla janam" and I go through this series of emotions ConfusedAngry/ROFL 

The best thing to do is laugh...

I think with a mythological show, here can be two routes: 

1. you show what has basis in various sources (which, of course is difficult enough given the sheer variety we have not to mention the contradictory versions) - i.e. you show what people already know. give the much-loved stories and figures a new visual canvas. This method has some integrity to it.

2. you treat like any other soap-opera and get "creative" with the narrative ...


This show from day 1 has gone for the 2nd option.

One could say they had no choice in the beginning as there aren't too many narratives around Sati...But they seem to be infected with the same mood when it comes to Parvati too...sadly.

I quite agree with that but the start of show was not like that it was all about mahadev and there was an aura of devotion around sati and mahadev

but slowly it degenerated to soap opera level

that's the reason i feel bad other wise i wouldn't have cared.

Krishna

yeah i am slowly learning how to laugh at this show, but once that happens i will not be able to connect with it as i used to

Krishna

That's very interesting. I came late to the show and had to catch up with back-to-back viewings. Maybe that's why, but I felt like it was a soap-opera from the very beginning. 
Sati crying buckets and trying to be "yogya" was pretty darn funny and melodramatic to me... In fact most of the Sati track was invention with a liberal dose of masala...

maybe that's why I can't get too upset (at least not for too long) with what they are doing now...

same here mira, i think i started watching regularly from the end april, early may and i always felt they made it a little less bhakti and little more soapy. sati's acting at times even beat the gopi bahus who cries buckets all the time.

BUt one thing i agree with krishna in the beginning the potrayal of shiv had a touch of divinity. Somehow mohit was living the part.HE does too now, but the beginning was something wonderful.His appearance at the end of first epi, that content eyes, the aura of peace and power that mahadev exudes was amazing. Towards april and may offcourse it was more of a hero in soap. Other characters and all more or less have always been dramatic.

How can I disagree with that! I concur entirely and that's why I continued watching the show. Mohit totally bowled me over with his portrayal/performance...thats why i am still watching...

but when it comes to the Sati-Shiv, romance bit...it was all a little ROFL and let's see how they do with the Parvati-Shiv track... will it be any different? The cynic in me say not! LOL

@bold red: ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL 

That's by the far the funniest comparison!
