I have always liked Gulkand - I feel she is the only person in that entire family that has no fear in calling a spade a spade and speaking the truth. However with that said - I do feel CVs have failed to do justice to her character - as it was introduced to us viewers. 
Initially Gulkand was portrayed as a loud, foul mouthed, short-tempered lass with a remarkable sense of justice. Her heart is "usually" in the right place - I say usually because her anger towards the Prasads stems from the love she has for her brother and and an inability to tolerate anyone taking him for a ride, anyone being cheated - any form of injustice. I'm assuming having been brought up by her brother single handed, she loves him fiercely - she's the kind that once she's in your corner and she lets u in - she'll stay loyal and fight tooth and nail for you - for as long as she can. In light of this I also feel she learned very quickly that the world doesn't respect kind hearts, "nice" people - those people get walked over ALL the time - case in point Payal and her family. 

So this is my take on the characterization of Gulkand - initially. Now what we are seeing is in my opinion out of character or a diversion from the initial conception of the character. 
Gulkand wanted to save Payal from the same fate as her - very noble - that was the right thing to do, could she have handled things differently - yes, would that have been any better - in the real world perhaps but then again this isn't reality and they need drama to keep the show going..

I know some have said that Gul only wanted to save Payal to one up the Prasads - perhaps that would have been an enjoyable by-product of the circumstance but I would really like to believe that her main motivation was to be able to disclose the truth to Payal - out of humanity and her sense/need for justice.

Gulkand's behavior now is odd - Payal's first morning - where she was taunting Payal for cooking a tasteless breakfast and the volcanic episode of yesterday has left me astounded. 

The first breakfast morning - her bullying Payal - I get because she's mad at her for knowingly jumping into the well so to speak and instigating her to speak out - giving her a taste of the dynamics in the household etc - all of that was ok but when Rajat appeared - why didn't she spill the truth to him? Better yet why didn't she say = oh hello brother of the bride since I missed the wedding for extenuating circumstances - let me tag along with u to meet the family.

Right now what we're seeing of Gulkand is that she's going full grey - not shades of grey - its turning into a competition of maintaining power and control. Her creating a scene was fine but writers slipped - I would have rather seen her rip the in laws a new one for being so greedy at her wedding but letting Payal off so easy coz she earns. 

I did feel a little bad for Payal when Gul burned the saree but TBH Payal totally asked for it - who asked her to be so meek and docile? I really hope Gul is just behaving this way to get a reaction out of Payal. Or perhaps this is to teach Payal that if Payal wants Gul's help in future she's closed that door since she didn't take her help initially?

Well i know i am late
But i do want to share my opinions on this

Well gul is trying her best to irritate payal
So that she speaks against the family
But payal is not doing so
Maybe because payal thinks that she should
be a good bahu.
or maybe because she thinks
her sweet behaviour will bring a change
But she needs to realise that they r too stubborn to change

After watching yesterday's episode I wonder if
1. Gulkand really wants to provoke Payal into action or 
2. Gulkand's behaviour is about maintaining power/ controlled over her in laws.

The other side of the coin is Gulkand wants Payal to speak and defend herself as she don't want her to get involved in Prasad family's trap and hence she's provoking Payal. Payal's character doesn't lost its charm, she's just trying to adjust with truth knowing the consequences after truth revealation to her family and society norms!
