What is perhaps more bothersome is how hellbent fans of TVS make abuses to extreme human rights violations. Despite and more so if Reva is mentally ill, she shouldn't be LOCKED UP for it. With little positive human interaction and who knows what help, it further enforces such a stigmatized view of mental health and if this is really a cause based show and CV's are okay with/encourage it, is beyond me. I can't even describe how inherently wrong it is on so many levels, women's rights, children omggg.
I think the mark of a really good actor is if he is meant to be negative/ on track for it is for people to respond to the character portrayal in the same manner (ie not liking the characters unless you are a sadist - ie Shyam in IPKKND/Jagaya BV, Joffery in Game of Thrones). So far that is not happening.
OMGGG I can't stomach it almost at how fans continue to make excuses and love this jodi and don't see whats happening. There can't be any excusable reason for this cruelty. I sincerely do not believe or endorse any sort of "love" if one cannot treat other people with humanity despite how much of an inconvenience they are or you do not like them. I just can't omggg ugh. Disappointed
Jasmine, we are not excusing the behavior. We are definitely upset with how the writers are handling this character so we are certainly coming up with our own theories as to why this is the case...
The writers are doing a modern day Jane Eyre and the idea of a wife walled away in haveli with a young girl running around really makes no sense so we are ally coming up with plausible explanations.
As a therapist I think the whole issue of mental health is treated so poorly on Indian television that I am not expected much from Ms Jha and the CVs of this show.
No Laila, in here I have to disagree with you as well. The entire push to find what ever explanation that coud be plausible for such an offense is an attempt to excuse such offense. To lesson the fault of the offender. More so, to find reasons that he is still a good person despite locking up his perhaps mentally ill wife and child. Instead, we continuously insist that despite whatever happens (whatever inhumane treatments, cruelty subjected that TVS-Sugni remain together in the end? Perhaps my expectations are too high to see justice done (as has been portrayed in certain serials).
Throughout PSH many users have repeatedly been doing just that, on this very thread people are talking about Sugvi kissing???? I am not here to equity police anyone nor bash them but am just voicing out clear concerns with the current storyline of SugVi.
I too have extensive experience with mental health advocacy but do not feel it safe to say what here. I have am have some serious doubts over this and cannot, I repeat cannot accept much less try to defend. I have always liked VB as an actor and am not attacking him but rather voicing outrage over the normalized response his character is evicting here. There are people who do not accept this or encourage this behaviour and call it love, or motivated for or by love. No excuses, no more lies to Sugni or family.
Does anyone know ways of contacting CV's and presenting our viewpoints??
Well we got our answer today...and remember THIS is India and the treatment of the mentally ill is no where near as sophisticated as in the west. Locking someone up in a mental asylum in India is probably far worse than locking them up in their own home. Remember, it was Dhanuman who found her, brought her back and kept her there...and remember SHE has no problem with her current living arrangement - she likes it, she likes being decked out in her wedding dress and simply getting a chance "paint away" - prior to this she was in an ashram. What TVS is doing is not the ideal approach AND he certainly SHOULD be honest. You can go to zeetv and even call them as well.
Yeah, and you should losen up about the posts on kissing etc...we're all having fun
