Regarding the ring, I wouldn't blame Sugni too much for that. Remember she was getting married, the biggest dream of her life, and suddenly Vik's long dead wife appears. She is devastated at Vik's lying, feeling guilty for disbelieving her mother. Yet she manages to stay fairly calm and leave quietly. Inside she must have been raging with hysteria. So the last ring throw was probably an outburst on her part, a symbolic bidai from Vik. In fact, in her mind, Vik cheated her, hurt her unbearably, so she did the two things she
knew would hurt him, pick up her chappals, underlining her bedni status,
and reject his mother's ring. Given the magnitude of the previous scene, surely at such a moment she can't rationally think, oh this is his mother's ring, shouldn't throw it, let me find someone to hand it to. So to me the ring throwing was okay, she wanted to hurt Vikram as badly as she could, and she did it.
Well balanced response. And I agree with you in in terms of the post made.
Sugni reacted in the way most girls will react, given that they have been deeply in love with a man and that man has turned out to be a liar. For me, Sugni was the victim. No one but Sugni. I thought Sugni would have slapped TVS but she took all her anger out on the ring.
