Jai, i agree with you that both Manav and Archu's lives were destroyed by Savita. Not only them, but Ovi Teju and Sachin lost soo much . It is not just that they lost the nurturing years of both parents together, or Archana's loving and sweet mothering but that their lives were filled with hatred. This is why Savita's deeds are so despicable. She did everything opposite of what a mother and grandmother should do...she didn't just hate and destroy Archana, she destroyed her own son's life and her 3 grandkids.
For me the forgiveness for her should definitely hinge on the fact as whether she realizes what she did was wrong, and is remorseful, not because she is now lonely but because she understands her actions destroyed so many lives. Otherwise she will just do it again...or try. She has to be changed before forgiveness can or should come. mo
Tanya, I agree with you re: the chawl case.. People are blowing it way out of proportion imo. Manav should be grateful as he is so attached to this house of his childhood, and in fact the judge agreed and so in fact did Manav and DK at the time...like you said. And BOTH Manav and Archana have not trusted the other one many times over the years, choosing to believe others who somehow convinced them against their own instinctive feelings.
As far as Soham goes, i also love him to pieces, but i don't think he will be angry at Archu. He already feels a draw and attachment, and he is very sensitive...he can feel her sympathetic feelings towards him. I'm not even sure he will be mad at Varsha (maybe he will) because he is so caring towards her. He really loves his mother. He and Purvi will be close i am sure, and they will be a good brother/sister team i think for a lot of things. Soham and and Manav will go toe to toe, because a father won't accept to see his son in such a negative position in life, and i think Soham and Sachin will experience some natural male competitiveness as siblings...but eventually they also will bond. But Manav/Sachin bonding with Soham, i think will take a while.
