2. why dont we see more of that? her unnatural attachment to Chote should be explored and addressed. Why can't someone in the house stand up and tell her, look your chote is married, time to cut the umbilicial chord. these things happen in familieis all the time. unnatural attachment to mother/sister and the wives pay for it. why not address that and show how a healthy relationship should be?
3. finally, not all things traditional are necessarily good. Elders in India have a sense of entitlement that they deserve respect and to be heard by default. but the truth is you have to earn your respect and be heard only when the youngsters seriously err. otherwise, i believe in letting the young make their own mistakes and as long as those are not going to be fatal, adults should allow them their space.
4. i am not a ritualistic person - in that sense I am ASR. I dont believe a few pheras will make any difference if you dont believe in your basic duties inside. this is just another way to extend the story. if asr had revealed his truth, the guptas or rm or both would not allow this to contiue for long and ASR loses his standing. so they wont reveal it. in fact when he would be about to reveal it - khushi wills top him .
5. in all this, one thing eludes me - what in the world did this ditzy blonde see in that nincompoop to fall in love with him? give me one good reason. yeah yeah his love is hidden inside but that we know she doesn't. so i am lead to believe khushi fell for cheap trinkets - the chana , the jalebi and the pear necklace. she is easy.
SJ - brilliant take.
1. If future employment is dependent upon past record, they would need some sort of a meaty role in this story to score the next gig no? If they have nothing to show for their skills, how does one score the next job?
2. Agreed. Also, why not show her trying to figure out what the eff went wrong with her marriage before she is allowed to give a bhashan on 'properlies' to anyone else?
3. That is a concept very much evaded and foreign to South Asian part of the world. The generational gap doesn't make it easier either. While the new generation keeps on moving in a forward direction, the older seems to have gone backwards or have stayed where they are. It is a two way street and both parties have to meet in the middle. Harmony is often preached but seldom praticed.
4. Story extension and to bring the social drama for TRP. Nothing more to it.
5. She has a thing for polyester suits, unkempt hair, body odor and random outbursts without any rhyme or reason?
