The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy'. Your instant reaction will be negative!
BTW what did you think of the episode generally?
Definite shock value at play here. The one thing I noted that even to Jeevika's ears, when Viren uttered those words, there was a momentary flinch, a momentary flash of despair as the words hit home again and again of just what exactly they were going to do.
In general, the show's plots just going haywire - like all over the place. The bloopers are more frequent than ever and even more ridiculous to digest, but that said Manvi's confrontation with Jeevika was absolutely spot on. I really couldn't have expected anything other than her rebuttal to everything Jeevika said; the whole idea in her ears is completely absurd, she can't fathom it at all. Call it guilt or whatever, she too is seeing one side of the coin, but I doubt her stance is going to change even after she sees the other.
The less I say about Virat, the better. I'm not too sure on what exactly his reaction was supposed to be. I know the dudes ill, but to some extent I kind of connected with his emotions. I'm a emotional recluse, I don't like to project my feelings out, and if I was in his situation, how else could I have reacted? On one hand, that's my neice/nephew who I've begun to love already, the love I never received as a child, I'm going to pour into this kid and not let him/her be chastised by the family when they get it wrong like I was; and then the other where the love of his life is slowly (or quickly, depending on how you look at it) is dying, but he doesn't really have any sort of stand point in the whole debate - he can only watch.
On the other hand, as Manvi's dialogue is becoming more and more poignant, Jeevika's is becoming more and more disconnected and brash. Sometimes the dialogue that's spurned out is boderline disgusting, seems like the writers are having a hard time coping to right equally as beautiful dialogue for Jeevika. Or they might just be spending their time playing Slender and scaring the shit out of themselves :L
The other dialogue problem I had was just the way the 'oh, doesn't matter, we can have another one' has been over used and some what trivialised to some extent. Yeah, fine have an abortion if it's a must, but the whole dialogue is just degrading the impact of the abortion - as if it's had barely any impact on them. At the end of the day, seems like the foetus inside wasn't special at all, or that every child should be given the same importance as that one had - having a kid is simple, anybody can do it. Quite insensitive to many many number of people out there who can't conceive at all and here we have two people saying that throwing away a child is nothing coz we can always get another as if the child is some toy :S
Or it could just be Viren and Jeevika trying to cope with the abortion, downplaying the child's significance in their life so it's not easier, but more gentler in letting go; but somehow I doubt the writers are that deep...
