Hmmm... My first peeve with the show is... What exactly is Muslim about this so-called Muslim/Muslim back-drop of a show? Even a liberal Western Muslim family like mine is more religious than the othordox Ahmed Khans... Islamic naam rakhne se aur urdu ke do chaar lafz zaaya karne se koi show Muslim nahin hota. I'm not saying devote the whole show to religion and culture, just don't outright neglect the conceptual roots. That is all.

okay, so I never bought the Muslim backdrop selling point. Yeah its about time it happened in contemporary TV. But, look, they take this just about as seriously as they take the rising prices for the the urban poor... LOL

They wanted to remove misconceptions about Muslims ? (First of all sad that some people still need misconceptions removed). But what have they done but to show that Muslim (TV) families are just as dysfunctional as Hindu (TV) families. Secrets, infidelity, conspiracy, kitchen politics, murder - Jeez! What's different? I'll tell you -  On this show they say "allah hafiz" and on others they say "Jai Shri Krishna" or whatever...

Point being it's a TV show, it'll be driven by the demands of a TV show and not social awareness (as we have ample proof!)

Cynically,
Mira

This cynical side of yours has actually taught me a lot, Mira. My expectations are subterranean on that front but since we've been given the platform to air out our grieviances, I thought what the heck Embarrassed I think it was the fact that there was a Muslim woman producer, that I allowed myself to hope. What a fool, I was LOL

Bitter experience my friend. The last two shows I started to watch promised "mature" (as in grown-up and sensible NOT steamy/sordid LOL) romance and I was badly let down by both. Regressive female characters, wafer-thin plot-lines, scheming saas, it was all there...I gave up on both in a couple of months...So, yes, I consider I have learned the hard way.

There are only a 2-3 of shows that I've watched from beginning to end (all one season shows)
