Though some of the storylines might be unrealistic, the makers haven't yet compromised on packaging it in its 16th century attire...which is what makes accepting the drama THAT much more possible...

Be it the Mirchi episode or the latest chess competition...
Be it the Bath tub scenes or the queen mothers lovingly competing for their rights over JodhaEmbarrassed

Mirchi Even though MA's mirchi deeds seemed juvenile, the way the entire episode had been directed made the whole incident appear not-so-nonsensical - what with Jodha respectfully obliging MA's wishes...what with a fully veiled Jodha serving Jalal his food...or even the manner in which her Ameri family were comfortably sitting watching for the king's reactions - all seemed laudableEmbarrassed

Chess competition - Before the chess competition, all the royal ladies have been shown aptly seated behind veiled curtains in their own royal booths and set foot into court only being summoned upon...

Adham-Jodha scene - Even if Jodha managed to come across her Rajvanshi-flag's disrespect only by chance she actually couldn't help but fight for the rights of the dancers appeared commendable... yes...she made some emotional points, nevertheless they were valid...yet, she shut up and left the scene AS SOON AS Jalal ordered her to leave ...

Jodha with the flag The scene where Jalal imagines his fiery Rajput princess waving the Rajvanshi flag for their cause made her appear like a formidable 16th C freedom fighter - no less! That's precisely what he's in awe about her - her spirit and spark...and he felt no discomfort after having seen visions of her in that way...

I could state much more...but pen these thoughts down as they come to me...the makers are doing a commendable job and should receive applause for being true to the era (even if not to the story) which is what helps us accept the fictional tale like it would have really occured...Big smile

Correct...elaborating on the flag was the first time that 'we-the viewers' got an insight into jalal's mind(regarding jodha)...he sees her as a fierce woman who is very proud of her lineage...and, he  had a smile on his face...

Yes I really liked the scene. Jalal really adores Jodha for her courage, for her pride on her clan. He loves her fierce image. Whatever be his words are, he actually wants Jodha to fight with him on her pride, on her clan.Smile

But not always... Like the part where jodha walks around like a normal girl outside and how easily jalal gets in the palace. In reality, she would have been veiled from the general public. The shaguni bai part at times was too much.The show does have it flaws at times. But then there is no such thing as perfection and we are loving the show as it is.

Good post. All of us love the show but criticise it a lot. Ekta and her team do deserve an applause for making the show as it is. Haven't loved a show so much since PRC and it continues to get better.
