Excellent Posts Everyone
, Of course someone had to come and Spoil the momentum with something that has nothing to do with the topic of the thread. Forgive them.
So, I will vent my frustrations as follows:
Cvs you have disappointed in so many ways, I know deep down you don't even know what you have done or what you will do in the future. Why? I don't know, I could bash you from now till eternity, but I know you will never be able to make the show to please the majority, as it was never your intention.
Cvs I was so intrigued by the topic you chose that I came home everyday rushing from work because I wanted to see what you had in store that would give all viewers a small break from the usual focus of Jodis, and Sas bahu drama. I don't mind some of everything, but your Topic of Bednis if utilised properly would have made it the most Interesting Show in History of Indian Serials, and you would have been the first to accomplish this and you would have gone down in History.
Can you imagine if you had just planned carefully and left out the arrogance towards your viewers, what near Heroes you would have been today?
CVS You should not have done below:
Try to make us believe that an Man can stand up for what is right at all times, remain unprejudiced to a culture of women, who make a profession out of their bodies for money, while mocking aspects of the institution of marriage, can change in two seconds. How did you expect us to believe that is possible?
You tried to make us believe that a Man who showed unconditional friendship and love to a girl from a scorned culture, was only lusting?
This man helped this girl in her worse times, even when his own family was against her, looked down on her, detested her.. Did you really believe intelligent people from any culture, cast, creed, nation, would ever fall for that concept?
Ok, so you made us disappointed in Vikram lying, because people with good values don't support lies, but did you expect us not to understand his plight, and his deep down intentions to tell the truth, based on how you started the show and what you presented as evidence to us?
Cvs you showed us Vikram and Dhanuma discussing that he would reveal the truth soon, then unfortunately Gulabiya found out about Reva first. So why are you trying to portray Vikram as this man who Always wanted to hurt Sugni and ditch his wife on the streets? Were you not the ones, who made us believe Reva is paagal, so Vikram had to get her treatment?
So, how do you justify Vikram being evil? Didn't you not state in the show, in more than one episodes that Jiji forced Vikram into a marriage with an insane wife? That she was insane from childhood?
So, are you saying Reva was so smart, that she pretended to be insane since she was a child?
Cvs are you kidding me? Do you think your viewers are that simple minded and would be too busy raving for Jodis, that we would not see the inconsistencies in your story?
The morality aspect CVS . Show or no show, real life or no real life, pretence or joke, people with a good value system, cannot swallow immorality, especially the ones you have continuously dished out for months now. I don't care how fictional these characters are, you would have to be brained dead to not be impacted by what you watch on Television. In general people watch TV for the purpose of entertainment, but they choose certain channels and different types of genres based on what they want to experience. I will not for once believe that I do not have a choice in what I watch on television, and I cannot dictate what television writers show me or my family. Yes, I can change the channel or turn off the tv, but at the end of the day, if 200 out of 250 persons turn off their TV or change the channel, would your show really survive? Where would you get the money? You do not pay yourselves, so it is the viewers who have a say in your livelihood at the end of the day.
I know you may take comfort in the fact that a lot of people in the world, just don't care any more, have given into the negative aspects of life to take over our world, for so many reasons. Some can't be bothered because they feel they can't make a difference. Some believe that not being concerned about the well being of the world and the preservation of good over evil, makes them boring or judgemental. Some feel keeping quiet and saying PSH is just a show, makes it okay in their mental world and they are untouchable by impact of these shows. Hey it is just a show after all, why are you people getting so "lunatic," over fictional characters.
I don't accept that a Girl should marry the Nephew of the Man she almost got married to, even if he was a fiancee from hell.
This is immoral and not entertainment for family.
I don't accept a Girl should willingly take the fiancee of another woman for her own happiness and revenge, worse a friend. Then call it in the name of goodness.
For educational purposes I will relay to those who don't know and obviously you don't or choose not to Cvs know that Fictional Characters cannot be based off of "Nothing," it is always stemming from or being guided by something real in life. It is impossible to say a Fictional Character is based on something you don't know or never heard of, does that make any sense? So, that is why it is important that what you show censored or uncensored is according to your audience, because these Fictional Characters are portray from something you must have seen or something from your mind, so how can they not be real?
Are you saying that your brain is not real? It does not have a thought process that is real?
Then, why should I accept or buy into your Negative Minds, since you say these are only Fictional Characters, don't they belong to your Minds then?
So, Cvs I do not want to accept your Negative Minds and call it Entertainment. If we accept all the Minds of Cvs of the world, even though they are negative, then it can no longer be freedom of entertainment. We cannot be experiencing this freedom if we are only depending on your minds, and our thought processes are not included.
If all the talented actors work for your Negative Minds, then they are in the same position as us viewers, they have not thought for themselves, just Robots.
Now to the show itself:
Sugni has disappointed me the most. Her age was a concern for me at first, with her big ambitions to change a culture which would take a mature, determined and strong person to accomplish and endure. Yet, I got comfort in the fact that she started out so good. The very first time, Sugni played Jhansi Ranki and saved that girl from her own half brother and his friends who were up to no good, I saw that strength and determination and even pureness.
Then all the other times, she tried to make her family including her Mother know she did not want to live the Bedni life and continue this degrading and destructive culture, that has ruined both sides of the coin for any family.
I am still trying to figure out why she was portrayed this way if it was just for "show." There is no consistency in this character.
Sugni maybe really acted her age, even though they say age is just a number, the verdict is still out on if we can always rely on that concept.
Sugni went from being so in love with Vikram, he could do no wrong for her. I can understand why she would feel this way, because Vikram did portray a man worthy of loving and is still consistent in this aspect. However, could Sugni have been more cautious in spite of Vikram's knightly behaviour? Maybe not, because she is 18 after all, and it is the likely age to fall in love and even if it is just the concept of love, especially if you meet a man like Vikram. Charming, Kind hearted, caring and helped your Mother get to the hospital when there was no one else. Any girl would fall for a man who was nice to her Mother, he would stand out from others.
Sugni said she saw Vikram as her husband, she would commit suicide if he was married, and of course we know she is alive and kicking.
Sugni said so much and has done so much in the few episodes we saw that we thought she was someone to be reckoned with, but now we have to accept never existed.
The main contention for all to decide, has been if Sugni's reaction finding out Reva was alive, justified.
Sugni could have been hurt, I accept that, Sugni could have been in a rage, I accept that. However, Sugni is clearly not a rational girl, after all she did learn from the best her Mother. We have seen how she has handled situations. Yes, everyone has flaws, and being irrational I can't condemn anyone for, even though we know that is not a healthy way to live, but to Bid yourself to the highest bidders of a whole community of Thakurs? Okay let us say her reasoning is that "Oh, just my luck, I finally thought I did not have to end up like my Mother, a Bedni, and live a decent life." I can agree with Sugni here for feeling this way. Let us say Sugni gave into this feeling and decided to just go with what she thought was her faith, but did she need to choose from the whole community of Thakurs? Did Sugni need to let Adi from the same house of her "Culprit," the Nephew of this man do her Sardhakai? Sugni knew that Adi was never a lover of Bednis, even if he and her Mom became new BFFs in two days, it was not the whole Bedni Community that he became friends with. She knew Adi was very much engaged to Amrita, the girl who was always kind to her, she danced at their Engagement Party. Did she not for once feel repulsed by Adi as her love's nephew?
I could have understood but not agree, if Sugni had gone with any other man outside of Vikram's house.
Her behaviour towards Adi in the room was repulsive. I could not imagine how no matter what state she was in, she would be willing to let the nephew of her ex fiancee who you she stayed in the same house with his Uncle only a few days before, touch her? Why would Sugni do something like that? How can that be moral?
She claims she is trying to save a marriage, so she killed two birds with one stone, ruined Vikram's life and Amrita's future, and hitch herself a husband in one go!!! How clever Sugni, you have rewritten the Bedni's culture, you have gone where no other Bedni has gone.
How can coming in front of a man who loves you to distraction, in his own home, flaunting your to be marriage with his nephew, make him fix his marriage? Men tend to want you more, when they feel they can't have you. Someone explain Sugni's logic to me (or is it the Cvs?)
It is obvious by now that Sugni is not concerned with Vikram's pain, I smell serious Pay Back on her part for ruining her dreams as "Wife."
To me Sugni is more mad at losing wife status with Vikram, than losing him. If not why the hurry to Marry Adi, why not just skip town? I am sure Vikram's love is pure enough not to search the whole of India and holding her against her will.
I wonder to myself, why Sugni would think that Adi would be genuine or loyal to her, if he betrayed his own Uncle and the girl he was engaged to marry. I have answered my own question, Sugni is not loyal herself, She was not even loyal to her own Mother, when she wanted to marry Vikram and when she wanted to Marry Adi. Isn't that strange? Marriage is obviously like "Breathing," for Sugni.
Sugni is words I cannot use on this forum as it would be deemed as bashing to the 10th Power.
Now, Sugni is supposedly showing determination, but is it channelled in the right direction? Can we ever trust Sugni ever again, after her wilful act of ruining a family? Can we really still hang on to Vikram and Sugni, when love is supposed to be Kind not Cruel?
Okay let us not depend on Sugni to have the Sanskaars of a decent home, where she sees loyalty, togetherness, strong and decent men working for a living, a single Mother working an honest job for a living, but isn't there something called "Conscience?"
Everyone was born with a Conscience, so why can't we hope to see an active one in Sugni? Didn't we not see her a good person in the earlier part of the show, or was it our imagination?
I am really sorry for the very very long Post, but I saw "Frustration Thread," and mine has been spilling over for months now.
