I do understand the frustration of all Armaan fans about how the track of the main characters are going. I can see it all over the forum. I am not going to go into copying the mechanic story and so on..
The reason I said that there seem to be diff. CV's for both is the way the characters are being dealt with.
In the case of ARVI, they show both Arjun and Purvi being strong, persistent, able to handle hassles coming at them in their own way, they communicate with each other their thoughts and feelings. Look at how they had Arjun pursue Purvi, convince and cajole her of their love. Now, recently, after Purvi has given in, they show their understanding of each other, ready to face all, they are open with each other about how they feel, their fears about Archana's willingness..Yes, there was a glitch in their relationship, due to Arjun's inability to be open with Ovi and Purvi was rightful about not having to do anything with him. But, they overcame that. They are a young couple in love, making their own mistakes and overcoming their hurdles in their own way. They are portrayed as such in a positive way inspite of all mistakes.
But, on the other hand, the CV's do not portray Archana and Manav as how they should be. More so, in the case of Archana. They still show her with the same mind set of what she was 18+ years ago. In no way, are they showing them having the maturity of what a 50+ yr old adult should be. They dont communicate with each other half the time, if they do, it is in half sentences like ARchana did the other day. The CV's of this track seem to be stuck in the same mindset as what it was so many years ago. Archana is still unable to talk before Savita's ranting, still puts up with her nonsense talk. Why dont they show her as a strong woman who survived despite losing her husband and kids. why dont they let her stand up for herself. other than an occasional show of strength, which still is shown with her crying throughout..we dont see the same characterization as they show for the younger generation. Soemtimes, I feel that they are confused as to how to portray Archana. When she is dealing with ARVi, or outsiders even, she is shown as an assertive, dominant even, and strong, ready to deal with it all. Once she goes back to that D-house, that is it. She is always shown helplessly crying most of the time. Well, Manav, the less said the better. Why do they show him as a 50+ successful businessman who cannot even stop his mother from insulting a guest who comes to his house. It is frustrating watching all this.
And I am not ARMAAN bashing, mind you, in anyway. I know that i am not aware of all the history in its details, but these are my observations on what I and quite a few of us see today.
For me, there is a huge disparity in how these two sets of characters are dealt with. I dont mean the details of the story, more so the characters itself.
Ok, I will stop now...:)..I probably haven't convinced you or got any closer, but just wanted to put forth what i think.
Nice to interact with you dear..Jyothi to keep it simple the current Arman and the Arman before are complete turn around ,they have nothing in common and are totally different. The reason we Arman fans feel so frustrated is coz of this factor. With Sush quitting and leap taking place and the way ,reason it took place (Soham's separation) has left a sour taste among all PR/Arman fans.
The current Arman is way different than the older ones. To put a analogous view , say for eg in Arvi suppose RD quit the show and Asha continued ,a new actor comes in place of RD for Arjun and now coz its a new person they change the characterization of Arjun meaning you see a all together a different Arvi which is exactly what is the current Arman. (Just came a analogous perspective of the situation through Arvi ,no offence here re ).
Hiten is doing a wonderful job as Manav but due to change in characterization of Manav by CV's its not the same any more and also due to the sour taste of the 18 year leap,Manav's character has changed here. Hence current Arman's story is a drag.
Coming to the old young Arman,as Poppy dear (Poas) pointed out we were enjoying the same hot romance with young Arman @ that time. The reason the TRP's were so high was the sizzling hot chemistry and the romance of Arman/Sushita on and off screen. Hell they were so broke they were chucked out in road but stayed and supported each other so so much.The reason PR was popular was the Arman love story,the way they supported each other. Hence many Arman fans feel offended as many scenes given to Arvi have been already done by Arman before which was a super hit.Arman went through so much hell so much trouble and still they managed to help others and still they supported n helped each other out.Their love was so pure and thats the very reason all were hooked up to PR inspite of crappy storylines just like now Arvi fans are hooked for Arvi.
WE too had so many film songs shoot for them Ekta promoted her film song "Dheere Dheere " Tushar kapoor film through them like she did with Arvi recently. Manav was totally different personality those times ,heck even if anyone dared to see Archu he would break their bones and he did so many times as well. I can go on and on ...Jyothi to understand the histroy of Arman you would need to see the storyline and scenes to understand better
...sorry for the long post...
The sample scenes below reflects What I said:
A simple one:
And this one : When Archu was pregnant
Sorry again for the long post n glad to interact with you re..
