But i guess we all are watching it only and only for Sanaya Irani right.
So tells keep all this apart and just enjoy watching sanaya act in the show.

Oh, I am watching Chhanchhan as long as it is on air for sure. I was just puzzled why it was being labelled as a saas bahu show when I didn't really think it was ... my idea of saas bahu shows was something different. This show I can relate to at many levels ... not only for Sanaya, but otherwise as well.

Whether this show is a typical saas bahu or not, I'm not sure yet. Its too early to say that esp since as of now there is no saas or bahu. But I think this show might eventually go down the typical route. While the issues such as dowry, etc are very much prevalent in the Indian society and this includes even the educated urban sectors and it would be nice to see the show tackle these issues... but I would prefer if these issues are handled in a sensible way and not in the typical melodramatic way. The way the dowry issue was revealed and the wedding was stopped at the pheras is a very cliched melodramatic concept... and these are not exactly my cup of tea. So if this is the kind of approach the show would take to deal with any other issues inc the saas-bahu issues, then I may not really be interested in it. But for now, I'm just trying out this show to see if there'll be anything that would interest me before calling it quits.

Very well put !
I absolutey loved the dowry thing in CC as well as your post.Yes,this is true that the educated and the so called modern and liberal people like us don't have the guts to say bad about our out-dated and baseless traditions and keep following them even after knowing the banes associated with them.
I so loved when they showed CC and her freinds taking an stand over this issue and their elders supporting them,instead of cursing the education and modernism.I wrote this thing somewhere and I'm writing it here again that this is the NAYI SOCH,not what we see in cookery competition and pickle buisness dramas.

love the post
its true the show is a Saas Bahu one but not the typical type where the MIL is full on ruling and the DIL has no backbone
here CC isnt afraid to stand up for what she believes in and what she has been taught
the show also has a light comic feel to it
and i love it for its uniqueness in addressing issues
it is real to life, modern girls are more outspoken, more aware and less likely to be pushed around

and its true its the educated people that are more at fault with dowry as they feel they are higher than others and are deserving
also the fact that dowry is a big issue and is illegal? and now is masked under the notion of 'gifts' etc was highlighted by UmaBen it is definitely raising the right issues in society and doing it in a good way too

I love reading your posts, you put a lot of thought into them and make them thought provoking too. As the mother of a daughter I love the scenario your mom put forward...if you are in a position to do something does it make it alright to do it? I wouldn't want to succumb to anyone's demands but then the balance is if it is a one off then my daughters happiness is at stake...but is it ever a one off?? In my case though I think my daughterhas too much self respect to allow this to happen. Love or not I don't think she would respect a man who would make any kind of demands and without respect there is no love. One of the main things I love about CC is her self esteem and I hope the CV's don't lose that because if even one women can pick that up from this show then the whole show has been worth it.

Thought provoking post !

I for one feel very strongly that the thinking that dowry, female foeticide or other such practices exist only in the uneducated masses is a complete misconception. It is just that the educated and affluent class have better intelligence and means to hide it or cloak it with terms like 'vyavhaar' for dowry.

Coming to the show, chanchan was always supposed to be a saas bahu show because that is the relationship between the two female leads of the show. I don't know what 'typical ' stands for but personally the kind of saas bahu shows that do not interest me are the kitchen politics ones with conspiring MILs and SILs or where the DIL is a meek victim. 

My hope from the show was that it will be an ideological clash between Umaben and Chanchan where Umaben will be an orthodox and arrogant MIL but probably having her own reasons for the way she is. I was a bit disappointed with her character in the show as it was looking one dimensional. But somehow how she justified her support for dowry in the last episode, her dynamics with her husband and how she uses him to rule over her DILs makes me again hope that the character will be more layered than it seems and that they are going to show what made her the way she is. If that is the case then I am interested. 

At the end of the day it is a show and the fact is that what we call melodrama actually sells. It is early days yet and I am still keeping my faith in this PH and two wonderful actresses - Supriya and Sanaya. If the show does not go the way which keeps me entertained , I would much rather prefer not to watch it rather than constantly criticizing it or lamenting about how Sanaya made a wrong choice. Even if the show does not appeal to me, I would be very happy for Sanaya if the show clicks with the mainstream TRP audience and it gets her the much deserved accolades for her talent.
