Very well written and i can definetely add to the instances where our intelligence n patience has been insulted n tested but then it would make a pretty looong post!!!
It seems the PH doesn't give a damn about the show anymore since its busy with its new shows etc. the story is going randon without any logic. The dialogues are being written without any regard to their implications esp the 12july accusations of Arnav on Khushi!!
The harvard educcated doesn't give a twit about his wife n sis in law being called derogatory names by maami for so long??? Akash has turned into another mama?s boy, spineless!!
Cant even start what the cv have done to Anjali's character!!
Please do send ur post to PH fb page!!
Praying for better times for us n the show!!

Thanks for adding the baby bump point.. missed that.. without getting into details.. another show by the same PH made a lot of news on the same lines about the character being pregnant without a bump and there were a lot of criticisms about it at the time too.. Guess they dont learn or maybe all the meds Anjali is taking is a part of some new medical discovery of being pregnant without a bump!!! Naye Soch you see!!Smile

I dont think they understand the message they are sending -- something as beautiful as "pregnancy" at least for the family and in general for the people around is being made fun of by keeping her looking the usual without a baby bump!

The reason obviously is "they think she will not look as good with the baby bump" -- but she will look good moping around, acting like she is about to die of some really dangerous decease that sucks out all the energy at once!!  And the she is looking good I guess doing crap like showing the disgusting "feelings" she did on Friday!!!

So, the physical problem of looking a bit fat because you are pregnant is bad but showing the completely ridiculous and really repulsive personality is fine as long as you can look like you are thin -- SHALLOW doesnt begin to explain the behavior.

From a time when there were just one or two channels for viewing to a time where I don't even know how many channels are provided to me by my service provider... what has changed is not just the increase in options available, but the immense power to choose we as audience have, which really boils down to what and who holds my attention and for how long.

From a person being someone's favorite actor from the first movie they watched till their last one, this is the age where favourite actors are as recent as their last performance or popular character they played. Basically the demand is less and supply is more which is why the TRP game is the axe that determines who stays in the race. This is not just an Indian phenomena... in the west... shows are as good as the last season they aired. Shows that have been popular for years suddenly brutally get axed by channels cause they failed to attract the audience.

And now what does the audience want - is it romance? drama? action? violence?  Well, to each his own... they want all of it and just one of it... there are enough people who watching t.v. who can make a decent number of audience to all shows that cater to all these genres. They watch what suits them...
But what most of us wont compromise with is being perceived as illogical dub witted idiots who watch things episode to episode without connecting the dots and questioning. This forum itself is an example of how much we question reasoning and and logic. I for one like to see myself as a logical person who really likes viewing things that make sense and are in tune with the characters, storyline and plot that was started on...

The story of IPPKND was tight, bang on and within the scripted plot till the terrace scene between Shyam and Khushi for me... whatever happened up to that point made sense... I never disliked Arnav cause no matter what he did and said, because it was just as expected from his character,just like Khushi's  naiveness was expected from her, as one who always gave people the benefit of doubt and so on for the other characters.

The downward Spiral for me started after that.. where my intelligence was questioned and I was expected to believe and buy stuff that was completely illogical...

Instances for that..
  • If Arnav believed Shyam and Khushi were involved and cheating his sister and on confrontation Shyam convinced him of the same, why didnt he tell Khushi the reason for blackmailing her into marrying him earlier on. What was the big secret... for God sake,, if they were lovers, Shyam would have told Khushi anyways.
  • What was the logic of adding the 6 month as a contract  time period for marriage (that too as a last minute voice over). Anjali would still be pregnant and so at risk if she was informed that her husband was a scumbag.
  • And ok.. if that was the intention and looks like 6 months is almost coming to an end, then when finally the truth was out... why wasnt everything brought out in the open. I mean was Anjali suppose to be told things in installments.. recover from this shock first then I will tell you that i saw him with Khushi 6 months ago and thats why I choose to support Khushi and not just because I am bestowed by her.
  • For a man who sacked an employee just because he didn't stand up in defense of his to be wife before his family, Arnav is shown to be an upright man who has no tolerance for anyone who disrespects the wives and daughter in laws of the house. So what happens to him when his wife and sister in law are repeatedly heinously belittled and insulted. Did he lend his spin to Preeto's husband during Bidaai??
  • Khushi's engagement to a man named Shyam was a known fact to all in RM.  Infact when she revealed the name, Mami had  looked at Anjali awkwardly and Anjali had brushed it aside saying only my husband's name is not Shyam. When Khushi gave her story to Arnav when he confronted her...I get that at that moment of fury he ignored it. But for all the flashbacks he had.. why didn't he rethink her explanation and piece things together... or at least investigate.That is what a person who so badly wanted to believe his love was not at fault would normally do, right?
  • The mother of all... Arnav was freaking kidnapped...he didnt loose his way at the airport and get locked in a room in Vasant Vihar... do family members have no concern and care to inquire at least after the inital shock of the drama is over of what happened to him and how he was kept. Not even the so called brother who seems to have lost a grip of what he is angry with his wife about.
  • Khushi risked her life to save Arnav.. she almost died and had to be revived... a medical consult is what logically people would go for to ensure she hasn't suffered some collateral damage.
  • During the Shyam confrontation..Arnav held his facial muscles tight and stood through all accusations and character assassinations Khushi and Payal was subjected to making us believe that there was a big mystery why he was holding his silence. We all waited for the big revelation as to why Arnav was mum...guess it is still not the right time to reveal that or the fact why they came in separately. Do we have a dream sequence for that?
  • When Arnav did decide to explain that he was sure Shyam is at fault.. why only tell Nani about it.. why not sit all the others down too and reveal the truth to them too, especially when accusations seem to continue to float. What is the secret there?
  • When so many things have happened in a household, nephew kidnapped and rescued, son- in law accused and exiled, niece attempting abortion, does the only male elder of the family not have to be informed??? Where is Mamaji?
  • When a pregnant woman goes to the doctor demanding an abortion and on the doctor's refusal, attempts to harm herself within the hospital premises, she is deemed to be mental unfit. It is a big sign of a mental breakdown.. and you dont bring this person home and leave her to confine herself in her room. You get psychological help. A family where people are Harvard educated who know that much, I had hoped.

These are the ones I can compile from the top of my head. If anyone can think of more such instances where our intelligence has been underestimated, feel free to add.

Sometimes I feel the PH planned and wrote the story till the wedding preparations time after that it was on the spur of the moment cause the loopholes have been widening ever since. And no matter how much they justify the pressure of the profession.. it is all about the survival of the fittest and the unique...

We dont want Rabba ve 5 days a week, but proper character formation and establishment is what makes a journey likable and believable. If you try to en cash on one or two characters and then wake up to involve the rest.. the audience have grown use to a pattern and are unable to warm up to the others suddently... So having  a plot and using any track to follow the big picture is critical!

i hold similar thoughts...i posted something  similar..which was sort of a precisof wht u  have penned down...bottom line is "dont ask questions"...anything said or written is taken as lusty desire of the viewers wanting to only watch ARSHI make out...
for heavens sake i am waiting for them to have a sensible dialogue with each other...there is no communication at all between them...

  For the past two 4 months I also have the same feeling and it really makes me wonder whether these people who are so called "creatives" of this show really know their stuff or not or they are into this profession for just the heck of it.
It makes me question their professionalism.
They came up with a wonderful and a different recipe
It felt like we had all ingredients of a wonderfully succulent Shami kebab , but they cooked their stuff wrong and presented us with half cooked meat on the platter and then said "Khana ho to khao warna fek do".

Amen sistah!

I completely agree. It does seem they have sort of lost their way for the past few months, and are struggling to find their way back again. 
I am afraid for the next month or so we will see them trying to do collateral damage. Hence not much progress in terms of them finally filling up the gigantic, gaping holes with some information. 
I have a feeling that they are slowly getting it back on track. But when will it be fully on track and back to being amazing? No body knows that. 

Maybe we should question Gautam Hegde? 
Wait I think I know his answer:

"We are working very hard. Give us a break"
