The day Shyam was asked to leave the RM, her faith in everything broke.. She went into a state of shock.. She was unable to grasp the situation.. and she lost the grasp on reality..
She suffered in her misery alone.. She banished her brother from entering her sanctuary.. The family which doted on her.. left her alone thinking that its best to let her come to terms with the truth.. But the family did not reinforce the truth..
The brother never came clean about the facts of the situation.. Only told that he had to do this for her and her baby.. but not the real reason.. he thought he was once again protecting her from the ugly truth.. but did he??
Can any woman who was in a devoted relationship for 4 years believe the accusations against her husband just because somebody said so.. If a woman does, then doesn't it mean that she had no faith in the relation to begin with..
All Anjali knows and understands is that HER CHHOTE kicked out HER SHYAM JI because of KHUSHI JI.. She is no SAINT.. Can you imagine what might be going through her mind?? Why did she ever bring Khushi into RM? Why did she not listen to chhote and kick her out?? She was happy till she saw the sparks fly between Arnav and Khushi but now that it has threatened her existence, not happy at all.. only thing she is blaming is why did chhote marry Khushi??? Why? She finds herself the culprit for keeping Khushi coming back to their lives.. and therefore she is now blaming chhote for it.. for it was he who fell in love with her and married her bringing her in their house and gave 24x7 close proximity to Shyam and Khushi' If he had not married her, the truth of Shyam's engagement to Khushi would probably have stayed buried FOREVER..
She is mourning for the death of her relation.. A person in mourning can be depressed or can just have symptoms of depression.. I would say Anjali as of now is suffering from psychotic depression.. Her entire demeanor.. ready to fall at the drop of the hat look.. That is why she is having the irrational thoughts that Chhote no longer cares about her'What she needs is a little reassurance from his side that no matter what he will always be by her side.. Remember when Arnav said di aap mujhe kabhi ma ki tarah chod ke mat chale jaana' Do u think it's the fear only Arnav has.. The fear of abandonment is deep rooted in Anjali too' She never expressed it for she was sure that her brother and husband would never leave her side.. But now with one gone.. her very foundations have shaken and who is to say that her brother cannot leave her too?? That is why every time she sees Khushi and Arnav together sharing private moments she goes to her hell that Chhote might forget about her..

From a viewer's perspective
A while ago, Doodleberry wrote about how the internet janta forms a very very small percentage (1%) of the viewership of TV shows, including IPK. Also, vast majority don't read redux and don't have others to clarify all the WHY's and HOW's for them. So, today, I decided to sit in a lay viewers chair to see what my feelings are about the show. Even I, a regular viewer, can give you pointers on what would work for me, right?
Dear IPK Team,Please bear with me while I take you through my journey of IPK. The way IPK episodes are shown, (the pattern is pretty evident now) once or twice a week I get a dhamakedaar episode and rest of the week, it's confusion and frustration, confusion because I don't know which way the story is headed and frustration because I don't understand what the characters are doing from one day to another.
I'm not going to do any bashing of CVs or PH or anyone else involved, but would like to TRY if they'll understand a regular (non-technical) viewer's POV. Shall we get started?
THINK ABOUT IT
Sometimes I wonder if the show is meant for intellectuals and not common people like me. This is a family show and I watch it for entertainment and drama, my attention span is very little (don't have the luxury of time) and to top it all I'm unable to relate to the characters on a daily basis. If it's Arnav confusing me one day, next day it's Khushi followed by Mamiji or even Akash. I'm not interested whatsoever in doing brain surgery to figure out what's going through their minds and why they are behaving the way they do. Here are some things for your consideration.
1) Relating to the characters
Let me take you through my journey of some characters and what I saw.
Arnav Singh Raizada – During the whole kidnap fiasco which was more than 2 weeks ago, I was totally puzzled by his behavior. Wondering how I remember this aspect when I said my attention span is short? Because ILU from ASR is a huge change in his behavior and this is what I was waiting eagerly to see. Firstly ILU was out of the blue and I didn't understand where it was coming from. Is he the same guy who kept hounding and pounding Khushi about the terrace episode and made her miserable? Just because of what she said at the airport, voila a tube light went off in his brain to bring about this change or did something else happen or did he do this to tell Khushi he was in trouble???? Still not clear why he changed and there was nothing to help me understand this major change. Please don't ask me to assume things here.
Secondly, you've always shown ASR as a thinker. He was in captivity for 15 days. All I saw was him fighting the goondas, but NEVER EVER was there any thought on his mind about WHO KIDNAPPED HIM? Isn't that the first question any one of us would ask? I was left scratching my head again and decided to leave it as I didn't want to tax my brains. .
Next scene is after kidnap when Arnav and Khushi are about to enter RM and they had a small talk. Now, when his wife brought up the issue of whodunit and she told him its shyam, all ASR had was a shocked look on his face. That really made me think ASR's brain went BYE BYE. Also, when he asked Khushi if she had any evidence to expose Shyam and the way they made their entry gave us all the impression that wife and husband discussed something and that's why even though Khushi didn't have much of an evidence, she tried to unmask Shyam. Imagine my surprise when the whole time I kept thinking ASR had some plan up his sleeve (once again it's the impression that I got based on what you showed) and the shock when I found out, ASR just believes Khushi and they had no plan in mind at all……….so, me thinks, this guy let his wife walk into lion's den and just stood there watching the show until the last moment??? How do you expect me to relate to him and is this the same person whom I saw before the kidnap? Is he thinking at all? My brain got too heated up and I said, chalo let's leave it, the show is not worth wasting my time. It's only creating more and more confusion.
Khushi - The other day, you showed Khushi talking to DM and telling her what the problem is with accepting her husband. Ok, but did the monologue come at the right time? I was scratching my head for a couple of days about her behavior and gave up. Then, comes the monologue, but wait please, it's still not clear if she's bothered about the contract or not. Oh, of course, I had to wait another day when she finally tells him that theirs is a contract marriage. Ok, so it took 3 episodes to clear things from her side. Now do you see the timing issue that viewers like me have? It's always been like this with IPK, first confusion and then clarity at some point. Question is, why do I have to wait for things to be clarified? If this happens once in a while, no problem, but it happens regularly in IPK world.
What'll work for me: Can you please have meaningful monologue's and put it in plain and simple language and make it crystal clear, so there's no confusion about inconsistent behavior or sudden change of behavior. Please know that what I see today, I'm not going to remember tomorrow, so show things at the right time. If you show a change in behavior, show us the reason for it by at least the next day and not 10 episodes later.
2) Handling Sensitive Subjects – I don't have family members or friends who have experienced depression the way Anjali Jha's character does. Now, if you show me something related to Cancer, a lot of us can totally relate to this dreadful disease that's been around for a long time and there has been a lot of exposure too. Coming to depression, it's taboo and people don't want to talk about it and even if someone is undergoing it, there's denial. Very few of us have knowledge about this condition or the issues that a depressed person faces.
Anjali Manohar Jha - The last couple of weeks you've tried to show Anjali in a depressed state, but did you tell me, the viewer, what she's undergoing? NOPE. I'm left to draw my own conclusions about her condition. So, what do I feel now about this character? I have no clue what she's going through and think that she's not willing to connect up the dots and is just getting paranoid and putting her brother in a fix and trying to make it sound like Khushi is to be blamed. Yes, to come extent I'll sympathise with her, but if I see this for more than two weeks, my sympathy will not continue and I'll assume she actually wants to separate Arnav and Khushi and will not be happy about it.
What'll work for me: Give me briefly some idea about the seriousness of depression and that too for a pregnant woman. Show me something that'll create an impression about this condition. If there were some dialogs between the doctor and Arnav about Anjali's condition, how to take care of her and what problems she'll face, there's every chance I'll relate to this, right
I have a lot more things to say, but want to give you time to digest just the few pointers that i mentioned above. So, let me take leave for now and see you some time soon.
