@veeps, I always love your takes ... yours, Sri, Doc, vee, joey, Mandy, meens, ippy, ... by the time I get online, the discussions are on full swing, and I never manage to tell you all that, but these and a few others are the ones I make a point to search out and read. And Lady J's Take 5 of course ... missing those badly!  Hug And the reason I love this thread is that it is discussion based without being too analytical or overly critical ... people criticise Khushi but don't bash her ... and there are lots of people to defend her here LOL I barely visit the main forum these days Tongue

Aw - thanks Dee - But not half as much as we're mising TWTW! Kya hua? Confused

I know this may upset Gul Khanji and most of IF, but while ASR might make my heart sing, I only feel invested in the story when I get Khushi. The day Khushi makes no sense, even an otherwise perfectly good episode leaves me feeling unhappy. Let Khushi be drama queen, angry, hurt, sad, annoyed, deliriously happy, whatever, but let her make sense, please. But na, they have to constantly mess with her character. And a lot of times they seem to do that just to make someone else look good (or not so bad).
 
So when Arnav is douchey, make Khushi do some crazy antics, just to divert attention. When Anjali is losing it, make Khushi give her gyaan so that she tries to stab her baby and do a quick fix abortion. Yesterday Khushi was made to do ridiculous things so that Akash appeared less doucehy (sadly, fixing Akash requires more than that). Yaar, matlab kya bakwaas hain boss?!
 
Let us consider the greatest (okay, not the greatest, but a pretty good one) love story, Darcy and Lizzie. Now women are all in love with Darcy, but they still get to see Darcy through the eyes of Lizzie. Of course, ASR is no Darcy and Khushi is anything but Lizzie (I mean among other things, she doesn't have that sense of irony.. but that might be a Lucknow versus English thing), but still going with this example (because Gauti Bhaiya also seems to have grandeurs that he is retelling P&P). Now even for a rather intelligent woman, Lizzie was prone to being mildly petulant and had a meltdown or two. Yes, the pride and prejudice were hers after all' something that Khushi too 'suffers' from. For instance, Lizzie was much for forgiving of Bingley for being 'so rich' but somehow that same quality in Darcy was equated to misplaced pride. Reverse snobbery much, yes? So if we all see Darcy through the eyes of Lizzie, who she doesn't have a favourable opinion of, how is that, we are able to fall in love with Darcy and understand Lizzie simultaneously? Ya, ya, it is blasphemy to compare Jane Austen with anyone, let alone desi TV soap writers, but ab shuru kar diya toh baat toh khatam toh karoon. Lizzie was sometimes even borderline annoying (there I said it!), but one would always root for her. Unless of course you watched that horror desi interpretation of Lizzie (Bride & prejudice). But then you have lost half your battle there when you cast Aishwarya Rai (*snort*) to play Lizzie. I am just saying, stop messing with Lizzie, so that I can continue to love Mr Dracy, okay? Okay.
 
I also am not liking this whole justification by Daljeet and gang. I am bored, bored, bored. All this "I work so hard" blah is so blah. Not like you are a sugarcane farmer in Uttar Pradesh who does all the work only to have the monsoon fail and lose his crops. Now THAT is poignant, you know, where extraordinary efforts seem to have no correlation with the actual payoffs. The rest of the people are just doing their work. And I know accepting a take-down of something you love is tough, let alone something that you created, but come now, deal with it. That is all.
 
Today the parental unit have their day off (matlab Ragini ka stress walla day). So we are going to watch Anand. You know because when your teenhood crush dies, you need to watch him die in reel life for actual closure. Who said parents need to make sense?! Zindagi kaisi yeh paheli, haye!
 
PS: Kuch zyada ho gaya, na? Koyi nahin.


ClapClapClap Rags, can you send this to Gul, GH and the rest, please? The audience for a love story is composed 99% of women, and if they fail to identify with the female protagonist, then however drool-worthy the hero is, it doesn't matter, if you feel the heroine isn't even worthy of his love! Kind of defeats the entire purpose of the love story ...
And that does NOT mean making her into an SP bahu ... but give her enough monologues and scenes where you show what she's going through. They did it properly for Khushi's realization when BS was missing, now again they're slipping back into the same mistake ... pay attention to Arnav, and never mind Khushi, she can be silly, dimwitted, insensitive ... telling Akash to go on honeymoon when his Di has just suffered a catastrophic break up was just idiotic!!! Lazy writing!!!

Ditto on Daljeet ... stop doing an Anjali!!! And follow your own advice and look at all the characters, not just your own!!! 

Clap

Rags, super P&P special... I agree with veeps, whatever GH's delusions of grandeur about his work, this was never P&P - not ASR and certainly not Khushi. Didn't Gulji say that their stories are from the PoV of the hero? P&P is Lizzie's view of Darcy and maybe this is ASR's view of Khushi? Would explain why it's so screwed up sometimes. That Jekyll and Hyde thing at work. 

As for the cast and crew...best not to read or watch what they have to say. Makes the show more enjoyable. 

Watching Anand will make you feel better, despite the ending! Big smile

Rags, that scene was horribly written. We know where this is heading but this scene could have been handled a lot whole better.
