Its simple.An actor is like clay,he is moulded by the director.
Its director who wants him to behave that way.Why is it so difficult for people to understand that?
Rajat's posture,which has been bothering people SO very much,isn't his usual posture.Its what he is being asked to do.
And moreover,kings are not supposed to be epitome of grace,they define 'strength' and 'power'.
So just because he went head over heels for a girl,all of a sudden,he wont turn soft.
And for all those who think,somebody else should have been given the role,i just tend to laugh.Because,tell me,who else has been able to make such major impact playing a historical?
Just one.Rajat Tokas
So if he isn't good enough,then no one is!
There is a reason why he is famous.And it is NOT just because of his looks.Looks toh bohat logon ke paas hota hai,but he didn't become famous just because of that.it was because of the way he portrayed PRC.If you would have seen the show.you would have known,that the director is at fault here.
And i see SO many fangirls drooling over their supposed favourite actors in other forums,where they just DO NOT stand even one word against their actor,even if the actor TRULY cant act *no offence* but just because he is 'hot'.
We are not such mindless pankhis. We showed respect,didn't we?We silently listened to everything.So please show some respect to us as well and try to understand the issue here.
We dont mind criticism,but attacking the actor directly,how is that criticism?Say you dont like how Jalal is being shown,fine.but statements like "Rajat cant act" etc,thats just not fair,considering most the people saying that havent seen his work before.And those who have,you did like him in PRC right?He did ACT well there,then how can one say that "he cant act"?
everyone knows he did a fabulous job as PRC.he didn't take those awards for no reason.Fine,the girls might watch a show for the actor's looks,what about the elders at home?Why would they watch it?The kids,why would they watch it?Obviously,not for the looks :D there must have been something right?
You dont like how he is playing Jalal,fine.But blaming the actor for it is just unfair.He has made remarkable work previously,and that cant be just ignored.while there are a few who aren't liking him here,there is a vast population who is!And no,its not because of his looks.What is the problem if a good actor,has looks anyway?
You might say,the only people who like him,are the ones who watched PRC.but no,i have seen SO many other people (take our forum only for example) who havent watched PRC and yet are loving him.
One clearly does not know,what goes on the set,what goes on while editing!
The crappy piece of editing,screenplay and camerawork,why dont we talk about that?Even that plays a major role how it looks on screen.
I am not opposing anyone's views here,coz they clearly are yours.I respect it.I am just hoping that my views as a viewer are respected too.
No offence meant to anyone.
I don't understand why you are so upset. We were having a decently civil conversation about something that is quite important. Many people on the forum have expressed their dislike for the way Rajat is acting...that does not mean he is bad actor though. And perhaps the director is the one who has instructed Rajat to act in such way but the result is the same since Rajat is the one who is acting onscreen. Are we not allowed to talk about what we feel when we see each episode just because we have not seen PRC or any of his other shows?
Who blamed Rajat outright? Who said he can't act? I cannot remember typing anything like that. I said that a lot of people have praised him so I am sure he is a great actor, but in this show perhaps he isn't showing his best.
I don't understand fans. I am not a fan of anyone, thus I simply do not get it. I like Brad Pitt, but still I may think he acted well in one movie and bad in another, even though he is Brad Pitt. I don't understand how to be a fan. I simply critique what I see. I may be more forgiving if I know that an actor is good but in this one movie he acted bad, but that does not mean I would blind myself to his faults and praise him when I think he didn't do a good job.
I don't get it. Why is criticism so hard to take for fans? I don't get why you are taking this so personally. It is not a personal attack to anyone on this forum, it's a discussion about Rajat Tokas's portrayal of Akbar. Besides, criticism can only make you better afterall.
And what are you implying by the bold part? What do you mean you showed us respect? I don't understand. Showed us respect by refraining to bash us (??) like they would in other forums for having a decent conversation about something we notice everytime we watch an episode.
It is too soon for Jodha Akbar forum to become like all the other forums where you can't say a word against the hottie cuttie pie without getting bashed. Ofcourse I have not been bashed yet on this forum, but do let me know if I am allowed to make future threads where I am criticizing the actor Rajat Tokas. If not then there is no use for me to come back here. I will quit this forum like I have quit so many others, QB being the recent one.
Btw, if this thread was actually attacking Rajat then I believe the mods would have closed it by now.
