Pointing Figures? Double Standards Much?
Zoya's stupid? She's irrational? She's the reason Dilshaad will possibly die?
Reality Check People...!
Dude Asad kept the whole Magalpur episode from his mother and that was the seed of this entire Venus Fly Trap.
Zoya did the right thing by helping Mariam because where was Asad going to send her? To some relative of Mariam's in Bhopal where she is the least bit safe as her uncle can get there in minutes?
She even followed his orders by sending her out its his mom that brought her back in.
People, wake up! Zoya should be LEAST blamed for this! Review all of the facts, take everything into consideration, and without being bias weigh them out!
Asad almost let Zoya die, but we found loopholes "Oh he wouldn't have been able to save her anyways, he did the right thing by waiting and then saving her," and etc.
But lets face it.
It reality they showed him realizing he needs to save her later. And that is my point, if he had the realization and urge to save her and walked away due to majboori than I would haveno problem at all with him saving her later but no there was no realization, he kept walking feeling like he should do something but not doing it. He didn't not save her then because of majboori he didn't save her then because he was confused.
Forget Zoya, in a moment when ANYONE is being buried alive at least you should feel the urge, and desire to save them really badly and the only thing holding you down could be majboori. All I wanted was him to feel not necessarily act upon his feelings but at least feeling helpless rather than confused.
But no, he was confused, at a moment like this people should be confused its perfectly fine but not about weather they internally, in their minds at least want to save them. And then, the most ridiculous part, out of no where the realization struck him. An epiphany! Out of no where! That he must save her!
I just wanted him to feel that before he started walking away, I could care less when he saved her I just wanted him to feel that, and have his helplessness be the only thing stopping him from acting upon his actions and walking away with his Mamu.
If he had wanted to at least in his mind wanted to save her rather than in a split second getting the memo that he wanted to save her, he wouldn't have been held guilty for this in my eyes at the least.
(Note: I had to edit this part with more bold points because once again people aren't reading the words written they are reading the words they want to see. I am not saying I find him guilty for walking away and saving her later, I am saying I find the fact that he didn't have that moment of epiphany and felt that feeling beforehand when they were burying her alive. I hope you can understand what I'm saying at least now because I don't know how to make this simpler!!!)
But we found loopholes didn't we, and clearly Asad was at fault here but no..., he's beloved Asad he was helpless! I don't care at least he should have seen somes internal turmoil! But I saw confusion and frustration (which are legitimate but not the most apt) rather than internal turmoil and majboori in the scene. But that's just me and that my friends is constructive criticism of a character.
And what do we think of Zoya? "Zoya's just annoyingly too into other people's business."
Well yes she may be but she has a heart of gold. She's different from other female characters in shows, she fought with that gunman to the best of her ability, she's different. And she wasn't even at fault because I'm pretty sure that gunman was from that bitchy Razia and Mamu anyways.
My point here is that Zoya shouldn't be blamed so harshly and not be accused of "not using her brain" she was not completely at fault.
If Asad wasn't so hell bent on keeping things from his mom, maybe she would have been in on this and the track could have played out completely differently in which Dilshaad would have insisted upon Mariam staying there. But his character portrays the common Indian man mentality to an extent: Keeping things keeps one safe but he like every other man with this mentality doesn't know that it actually puts that "one" in the most danger. I'm not saying he's completely faulty here too but just like he's not 100% responsible neither is Zoya.
If we are willing to overlook Asad's flaws than why accuse Zoya of flaws she doesn't even have?
But if you really want to get nit picky about her then here: she has a golden heart and that's probably her biggest flaw but it shouldn't be confused and misinterpreted by people as nosiness, annoyance, and downright stupidity because she is the last person in this show who those 3 words would fit.
Look into the situation for both characters before smearing the blame on them. Like seriously why this double standard people?
I may have said it before but here we go again, Zoya is the character that caught my eye, I love her to death, she represents everything I believe in and stand for, and she is why I watch this show.
But I'm not bias, when she does something out of character or something that she as a character cannot justify, I'll pick it out. But you should do the same and right now she has done nothing that her character cannot justify.
So before you start pointing fingers look into the matter rather than just saying "I know that but..." you know the facts so don't contradict them with your accusations.
That is all.
PS. This does not mean I don't expect Asad to like... how do I put this lightly... blow the roof on Zoya. I mean his mom possibly died and him (AS A CHARACTER) would be in no state to rationalize things before acting upon anything. So I mean him misunderstanding her is technically not alright but given the situation and his fragile state at the time, its understandable. But you guys (THE FANS) should not and this rant is for the fans not Asad who undoubtedly is going through a lot.
Wow. That's probably the biggest rant I've ever written. LOL Back to work.
