I know I am not to post topics comparing shows, but the way Anjali is shown, I can't help it.
IPK has Anjali who is clingy and weepy , who emotionally blackmails, manipulates, and has all the family members dancing around her, indiscriminately picking up pills and offering her whenever she is in the frame, ( which is always, since we are talking of EXTENDED SCREEN SPACE, God help us!).
In the very next show we have Maanvi, battling a terminal disease without resorting to high-end drama.
The pregnant lady, for all these naatak, doesn't sport a baby-bump, whereas, the one with cancer goes bald!
Anjali clings to her sibling and is jealous if he spends a wee bit of time with his wife, whereas the latter stands firm in sending her sibling back to her spouse!
plz plz For God sake, post this to 4lions or ipkknd officials.
this sickening monster anjali is sucking the soul of our beloved show.
It should be noted that IPK was promoted as a love story, where as the other show is all about sibling love!
Before I get bashed for comparing, let me clarify. I love, or rather loved IPK, and actually started watching the other show by sheer accident, since it comes right after IPK. But the way they have handled cancer is commendable, no melodrama, at the same time, not trivialising it either, whereas IPK's handling of a normal, beautiful experience like pregnancy sets your teeth on edge!
CVs, please, this is a wake-up call! With such powerpacked talents, esp in the leads, (and by that I DON'T MEAN ANJALI!) please, please do some reality check. Don't give us such unpalatable characterisations, even if it means the said actress gets an opportunity to show her histri(yawn)onics!
Give us back the show we loved!!
