Yes, you understand fully what I am talking about. Most people want cheap romance between a teenager and a mature woman.
There was one post today that marvelled at how Kesar was looking at Gulaal's lips
. That too in a drunken state. This guy Kesar has no sense of responsibility - leaves his best friend in the middle of the road, acts rudely with supposedly "The Woman" of his life, and gets drunk to be able to speak with Gulaal and he is supposed to be the right match for Gulaal - the selfless, caring, generous, and considerate adult? That is just a crazy idea. But then again, SP will probably do just that to raise the TRP and butcher the show.
I really would not want Gulaal to have anything with Dushyant either. It's one thing that she has forgiven him, but he is still a culprit. Gulaal should choose wisely. That's why I really want Vasant back so that Gulaal finds her ideal match.
It will be really funny if Gulaal slaps him hard tomorrow
You see, commercial films make more money than art films for this reason - it's hard to find an audience that longs for real drama instead of "teenage romantic masala."
@ red, this show is not about older woman, young man romance - in fact, I think SP is making a show specifically about that that!..(Reemz, it's by Pearl Grey btw
). The expectation came about because of the loyal viewers. As mentioned, I do watch the show but not for who is ending up with who, but more to see how Gulaal handles the challenges of her life. I'm a writer in life and I find the character's progression from a lovable romantic girl to a mature woman, more subdued now, almost afraid to open her heart again after unbearable agony of losing her soulmate, very fascinating. In that respect, I think the writers are doing a good job and hence my first post - I've not seen any signpost that hints at any romance (my subjective view) and so to suddenly have it, well, to me it would feel its forced or to please the masses. As a writer, it is our job to explore the unexpected from the obvious, not to give into cliched unless a fresh twist is added.
So to me this show is about a young woman, Gulaal and the people in her life, her relationship with them all, positive and negative, how she handles the burden life throws at her. She is human, makes mistakes and then tries to rectify them. She is more than a two dimensional character.
