Julie, yet another good post, thank you.
I think the serial directors work in the opposite extremes.
What is known to be sacred to a community is turned as sacrilege and what is sacrilege is turned as sacred,. Every moral, ethic, virtue & good principle is twisted & made a mockery of, to suit egos, lengthening melodrama by hyping up the emotions of the audience.
That's why you find Sughni's role conflicting and in oppostion to original character
- Sughni promising never to dance in front of these men, then next, she does it.
- She wants to leave the town to preserve her honour & chastity, but then she is willing to do 'sar dhkai' and sell her body out to other men (regardless of how many affairs & wives they have).
- Sughni prevents Adi from putting on the sindur on her, due to him being engaged to Amrita, yet she doesn't mind having extra marital relations with him, eventually showing her true colours not caring what happens to Aditya's & Amrita's engagement when she demands marriage with him to preserve TVS's marriage, as if anyone can dictate to a grown man and force him to remain in an unhappy, volatile broken marriage.
It's all just very childish & irresponsible. We can go on listing conflicting issues with each of the characters on this show & their deceit & hypocrisy till forever. It's sad that those who run these serials lack sensitivity to the ethical standards and the sentiments of the viewer. In this profession, they seldom care about the hurt, anger, pain & damage they cause to the conscious mind. Viewers unfortunately are innocent in this game and once they are addicted to TV, often get trapped finding it difficult to detach emotionally and do other positive engaging activities. I feel sympathy for those who are traumatised further with abuse, depression & other health issues.
I can't imagine what the Bednis are going through & what they will be feeling if they are watching this.
We're all virtually, wasting our precious time here. You can see this from the negative acting roles & excessive publicity, modelling, vanity shows etc and you know what goes on behind the screens - endless partying, music, joking (about us) & also probably drinking alcohol, getting drunk...no wonder that they can't think straight any longer!
Therefore, it's best to smile and for us all to move on to do better things in life.
