Doves, Thanks. Just watched the episode. Agree it was so OTT Khair jaane do. I agree word to word with what you wrote so won't repeat myself. Just one thing, the revelation, a little peep into Madhu's history was such an awaited drama for me, I had imagined that it would happen in a special track. Instead it was not even a full minute dialogue ! And RK, the sensitive person that he is, doesn't much show a facial expression change, although the fact that he registered was seen. Sigh!!!! Come to think of it, if they are gonna grind everyday about RK's loss of childhood, death of his father, then pretty much, there is no hope left for the show
If the writer's have half a brain, they will pitch it that this is not news to RK. When he decided to go all revenge-fu on Madhu, he had found out EVERYTHING about her. He would probably have known the big story re psycho dad of death. So he wasn't surprised.
The revelation is not the big development. The fact that Madhu CHOSE to reveal it to him , is.
Yes FQ. Agree there. I did not care to word it properly, but the drama of Madhu revealing in this manner, in a comparative way, with those eyes, I always imagined it in my mind that it would happen in a context quite different from today. Fine if she said it here today, she(as in the dialogue writer) could have made her emphasizing her argument through questioning RK, if she too like have lost all faith ? As in repeat the same thing but in a different tone. It drives hard. Its not RK whom I am concerned about. Its about the AUDIENCE, the Viewer mind that I am concerned about here. It needed to be hammered in public memory with certain level of heightened emotion concentrating on her part of story and why she will not sympathize with him. It would have made me happy then.
I found it interesting that she CHOSE to reveal this to him at this moment. I would have preferred it be in some other context, I would have preferred it to be just the two of them perhaps.
FQ I doubt very much that they're going to play this out as RK knowing about this little tidbit, but who knows they might surprise us yet. Maybe it was meeting her father in the jail cell that kind of tipped him off to something. That would make that little scene a little bit more relevant.
SD, I was a little saddened by her bringing up her father and the history there. I'm going to borrow a bit that FQ wrote in her FQNama for this episode:
Madhu reveals her own life story. Everybody is aghast. FQ may have teared up a little bit. And then what do the Wriiters do? In the worst bit of writing in the history of the world, and I am including the Houseful scripts in the reckoning, they end not on the pathos of that, but on the screwed up bit of paper M is carrying aound tied in her pallu. Just slay me now. No mockery can be mocking enough.
That is exactly how I felt when I watched that.. I was a little disappointed. That's how she's going to reveal it, it was a bit of a throwaway comment to be followed up by more revelations about the oh so compelling kabob storyline that we've been waiting to be continuted with baited breath. It was the most frustrating thing so I decided to concentrate on the fact that now RK had another piece to his Madhu puzzle that he could tuck away and bring out again when the time was right. I really hope they revisit this because I feel like a door was propped open with that line.
See FQ herself said it what I was feeling. That is what I exactly felt. How demeaning. It was me the AUDIENCE cringing. I needed to hear Madhu painful saga in response to; like what 8 minutes of RK harangue. But what do I get to hear? Its like the crpytic message from World War II sent messages...the important is buried underneath the rubbish.
FQ, why didn't u tell me you felt the same. Okay i get it. I have to read it. Okay going there to read FQnama.
