U are so right! The female character is so well etched and she is given such a solid background but rk is all hazy and weakly sketched character. 

The point where you said as to where the family was when he was arrested I thought that his mom might be some heartless birch who doesn't give a damn but the opposite happened. 

But on the other hand why would a man who has had a healthy upbringing be upset with remarriage?  And that too as a grown up??

I think there is more to this. Maybe his current step father was his father 's best frnd or brother and the. Inappropriate behavior is making him like that?  

The show's weakest aspect is also the very slow story telling, the pace is not to my liking at all.

So the worst thing the makers have shown in the 90 or so episodes of Madhubala, according to me, is RK's background. 

First problem is the logic they are using to justify his character. He was very close to his dad. One day the father dies, leaving him shocked and shattered. His mother remarries for his How does that give him any reason to hate his mom for life? Or to turn into a heartless monster? 

  RK's past has been not fully revealed yet . Also his anger has increased step by step due to his Step Dad . Basically he is Boy who is completely broke from inside . 

Second problem is the mom's entry. A police case is filed against RK. The police come to his house to escort him to jail for 4 days. He repeatedly tries to bribe victim's family to save his own self. He makes his master plan to manipulate Madhu's life, buys Mukund's mom, uses Trishna/Roma as pawns, and arranges the engagement. Madhu and Malik visit him at home to call press conference. His love announcements on tv. The photos in the paper. News reports. SO MUCH happens and his 'mom', step father and brother are not in the picture???? How realistic is that?? And then he beats life out of Malik, leading up to the dhamakedaar wedding...and all of a sudden a heavy lady in traditional sari is standing at the doorway! Confused

Just to make things a tiny bit realistic they could've shown that his family doesn't live with him. And why does he live with his mom if he hates her so much??? I have no clue.

  Yaar yeh log baad mein bhi dikha sakte hain ki Mom kahin gayee thi Ashram mein isiliye nahi thi tab . This is not a big issue . Yeh technical aspects hain Serial ke . 

And third problem is his mom's character/appearance. Why does she look like a typical housewife in heavy sari and jewelry?? Does a superstar's mom and wife of a producer REALLY look like that? Stern Smile

 How should producer's wife look dear . Are there any rules Confused ? 

And she also makes sabzi in the kitchen for a son who doesn't even acknowledge her as mother...what was she expecting??? RK will come and eat from her hands and then kiss her goodbye?? 

 Yaar Maa ka dil hai she will keep on doing this in hope that one day his son may eat from her hand . I am dead sure he will eat food made by her . She will never loose hope .

Very poor logic used by creatives. I feel this aspect has hurt the story quite a bit.


    Personally i think Story is doing fine . Also this is story of Madhubala only . But you need backdrop of every character why he or she is like that . Madhubala's side of story we know & now its RK's turn . After some days we will get to see making of Madhubala the superstar . 

  I think Audience need to have patience as we will get to see everything but slowly & steadily .

Ok...TM..Nice post...Im nt saying tht the show is Perfect...It has no loopholess...Thr r ...n thr has 2 be...becoz thn only one improves...Tongue...n the show is improving...Abt RK'char...see first of all the char is nt somethin v can understand at one go...Its clear tht he has a troubled past ...I mean childhood...A child can never understand the complexities of life...thy r nt equipped 2 deal with it...Morals dnt work thr..If as a child..he has suffered ...he wil try 2 b rude...nt 2 hurt 2 protect himself...4m the world...RK portrays himself as a rude person with no emotions...simply becoz of the said reason...

Being his char weak...I dnt agree with tht...His story is nt revealed yet...V cant judge his story as weak...n as an excuse as somebody pointed out here...Abt Madhu...I agree tht Paddy had suffered alot...Bt its becoz of her correct decison ...n her strength tht MB n Trish were leading a gud life...undr the protection of Shamsher...So 4m tht pov...Thy had a secured childhood...Whras RK lost this protection whn most needed...So I dnt think its an excuse...

I strongly believe tht nt Humans Bt Circumstances which r negative...My comment is nt in support of my fav lead...Its in support of which I can relate...

Abt the slow pace of story telling...I would say its fast whr the leads got married vry quickly...This is a tv show..It needs time...2 show its story...

My comment is nt 2 hurt u or any othr member

1. You can never predict how any human mind is going to react to a certain situation or how it is going to shape them as an individual. Rishabh has been shown as a hypersensitive 12 year old whose father's death's mystery is yet to be revealed - as his mom has mentioned ' that one super traumatic night' . He could not accept his mother's second marriage , had a terrible relationship with his step relatives and he became alienated. So, what you have today is basically a frustoo lost 12 year old locked in past. Besides , who knows Rishabh's whole story? Nobody. You have only seen it in bits and parts. 

2. Rishabh is living in his house , his father's  house as Kukku Bhatia mentioned. Why should he go anywhere? Its his house and he is putting up with them because of his mother. He is just paying back the blood bond. 

3. Yes, numerous industry wives move around like Rishabh's mom. And no, am not talking about immediate Bollywood. 

4. Creatives never justify Rishabh's behaviour - they just tell you where he is coming from and that his problem is a troubled lonely childhood. 

5. When Rishabh was in jail, the casting and the story points had not been locked, except Razaa Muraad. That is why you got the Bangkok excuse. 

The logics of the creatives are totally in place - its just that you perceive the situation with a different POV.

Disagree with most points. 

1. Why do you think Rks character is not justified? what do you expect from a 12 years old who lost his closest and fav person on earth and next thing he sees is his mother marrying another man as taking his fathers place? You aren't really expecting a 12 years old to understand the need of marriage, reality, society etc are you? LOL and its not even shown how Kuku bhatias treated Rk in childhood but the present gives fair idea he never treated RK as his own son so hence the result is like this. its very much justified and we still don't know his whole story. 

2. I agree I didnt like his mother entry but Kuku and sikandar was in bangkok when these all happened. they said it in their entry. and correction: he didn't beat up Shamsher. it was self defense his body guard defended Rk when Shamsher tried to attack him. and FYI, it was Bittuji who beat Shamsher black and blue and RK didnt even instruct him to do so. 

3. Its Rks house and he let them live there because of his mother. whatever he says isnt it obvious he cares for his mother and thats why he saved Kuku and Sikandar from the police fiasco. 

4. Whats wrong with a mother cooking for his son? you havent seen much of any actors or producers wives or anything as it seems. LOL even Madhuri Dixit cooks for her family so what? and Radhaji is a mother and doesn't matter how angry their children can be, they will always look after them and that's exactly why his mother cares for him. and its visible she clearly knows todays RK became like this for his mother...

the logics are in right places but you need to see them...

disagreeThumbs Down
how could you expect that a boy at the age of 12 who has close bonding with his father will accept step father after the death of his own father...

if we  go through other factors like his moms entry than we can ignore such points chill & enjoy the show
