|Has the bubble finally burst?|
|She was Lakshmi, Durga, Sita and Savitri. No wonder Tulsi Virani is on the verge of a breakdown, says our correspondent|
New Delhi, October 24: THERE is a limit to the extent you can exaggerate emotions and relationships and Ekta Kapoor has surpassed all these limits in her various Balaji teleserials, particularly Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. |
But it is about time Kapoor and her creative team step off the TRP treadmill to introspect. And the time is right now, when her most coveted character, Tulsi Virani, of the highly popular serial Kyunki... is on the verge of a breakdown.
This had to happen sooner or later. In the last three years, Tulsi Virani's has been portrayed as holier than the Ganges and stronger than Mother Earth. She exhibited the courage of a soldier and the wisdom of a hermit. But that wasn't sufficient for her creators. So when feminists protested, they twisted her character into a gender issue. When reformers cried foul, they resorted to references from mythology. When the elections drew close, they transformed Tulsi
Virani into a mouthpiece for the RSS. She was the custodian of tradition, the touchstone of past and present scriptures. During Diwali they reincarnated her as Goddess Lakshmi, the only one responsible for preserving peace and prosperity in the large joint family. During Navratri, she emerged as the fiery Durga, resolving every domestic crisis singlehandedly. To portray her as a martyr she was made to go through a trial by fire, a la Sita in Ramayana. She stayed away from the family in Haridwar till Ram alias Mihir Virani acknowledged his mistake. And to prove her heroism, she was made a Savitri, bringing her husband to life when Mihir is presumed to be dead.
The bubble has finally burst. Unmistakably, there is contradiction in the premise of the show. Kapoor needs to sort this out before Tulsi Virani turns into another Frankenstein.

I think this article is correct. They have always shown tulsi as some goddess, and what all she said to karan, i dont think even a normal woman can say all that to some child. She was shown is a very different light from what was shown when the serial started.
And what all she said to mihir about mandira, correct she was right, but either you dont forgive a person for such mistake, and if you do you dont remind that person his mistakes again and again and this is what tulsi did.
And now when she knows that she was wrong, i think they should show her apologising to mihir. But tulsi virani, the goddess can never apologise coz she can never be wrong!!!!!
Hiten finally out of ekta's shadow
