I am completely conflicted in how I feel. On one hand as a mother I understand Gulabiya and her need to protect her daughter. On the other side is the obsessive lover who is willing to do anything to keep his love with him. I can't help but feel sympathy for him and want to support him. Even though I know what he is doing his wrong!
It is all very interesting, different and never boring.
That is EXACTLY how you are supposed to feel because in the novel of Jane Eyre and every protrayal of the character of Mr. Rochester, you know he is doing wrong, you know he is deceiving Jane but at the SAME time you know that he truly loves her. The same can be said for Mr. De Winter in Rebecca where he too harbors a dark secret and is not honest with this wife. It takes a very good actor to generate that from an audience. You don't hate him, but you hate what he is doing...and that's the difference.
