I've been watching IPKKND from day 1 and I love the show. And like almost everyone on the forum, I love Arnav & khushi's Jodi.
I also think what the creators, writers, directors are doing are brilliant. This show cannot just be about arnav & Khushi.
The show is called: iss pyaar ko kya naam doon.
And I guess there are so many different types of love.
Love a couple feels for each other. Each differs depends on the type of personality of the characters.
Arnav and Khushi are both opinionated & strong. So their love story is passionate, intense, full of chemistry and lovely to watch.
On the other hand, Payal and akash is also a love story but different. They are both introverts, submissive in character. Quiet. Their love story is slow; predominantly a lot of non-verbal communication. Yes akash is hurt and rightfully so but what drives the hurt the honesty and innocence in his character and that he has love Payal since day 1 and has pursued her irrespective of their different status. What is important is honesty and he feels hurt because Payal was not honest with him.
And then there is the sisterly love between Payal & Khushi.
The different portrayal of brotherly love between arnav and NK - where he is getting tips from his younger brother to woo his woman. And a more serious relationship between Akash and Arnav where Akash worships the ground Arnav walks on and does not challenge him at all. This is complete contrast to NK (though all brothers love each other immensely but show it in a different way).
The portrayal of brotherly sisterly love between arnav and anjali is also important. Yes it seems that there is definitely something not healthy about the way anjali is so dependent on her brothers especially arnav. But i think of the two, she's actually more psychologically damaged. It would have hit her harder with the lost of her parents in that circumstance; the breakup of her wedding, having to be strong for Arnav despite also coming to terms with the betrayal of her uncle. Abandoned and them being raised by her grandmother. And with her disability in mobility. Quite a lot for a young woman to carry on her shoulders!!! No wonder she turned to god and her conviction in god is strong. Possibly one of the few things that held her together. And now she faces the biggest betrayal of all - her husband whom she thought was god is a lying snake. Her ego will not allow her to believe that to protect her self. So her defence mechanism is to blame someone else - Khushi; the other woman. Also this woman is the same woman whom anjali will need to share her brother's attention with. So no wonder it is easier to blame khushi. When she finally faces the truth and willing to come to terms with it - i think the risk if self harm / breakdown will be high!!!
There is a portrayal of a mother's love for her children through Mamiji where she showers each of her children (arnav, akash, anjali & NK) differently depending on their needs. She also distinguishes what's hers vs not (I.e daughter in laws and son in law), especially common since she is the boys mother.
Contrasting this with how buaji and garima show their love for the daughters in the family and then the son in laws.
There is an excellent portrayal of a grandmother's unconditional love for all her children despite who are hers and her love for Khushi and Payal. She is also wise and sometimes even when it hurts, one has to stand up for the truth! And then dont mess: if one harms her children, she will be willing to go to any lrngths to protect them even if it means cutting off the son in law Shyam from the family.
So all in all, excellent show and excellent that there is so many different threads to pursue instead of just the love between one couple - arnav & Khushi. All the actors and staff involved in bringing this show to our screens are brilliant!!!!
Thank you for reading.
