I am totally fed up with this show at this point. Today's episode made it clear that the intention is to keep Barkha in this show permanently..dreading this but most likely (i.e 100%) gonna happen. That's why:
1. Kanha is now daily stating that he is overwhelmed at Dev's love for Radhika and Radhika is extremely fortunate to get a husband like Dev. Yes, any girl would be ecstatic to get somebody like Dev (here I am talking about Dev from RP tilak onwards) who picks somebody else as his wife in public, believes that woman and some random woman (during sindoor episode) over his wife, shouts at his wife at the first time she supposedly spoilt some food (the wife should be perfect and smiling all the time and should never have a down day or a day where she is subdued), shouts at her when she supposedly questions the "mahan" other woman in his life and blames her for her insecurity. This perfect husband wants his wife to sleep with him when he is in the mood or content to live a celibate life when he is in his sacrificing mood. This "great" husband does not care if his kids would be considered illegitimate in the society or if is wife is called characterless for something his half brother did. Then of course there are his last actions when he tries to slap her or accuse her of being an attempted murderer or doesn't care if she is missing all night. Then on top of that, he never bothers to inform her father that his daughter is missing for a month. Doesn't bother to inform the police or back away from looking for her when the supposed "mahan" fake wife goes missing for an hour or some people recognize him as their esteemed RP. Now daily he is reminding her that he is doing a great favor by bestowing the "wifely" rights that involve sharing his room and sleeping with him without any benefit of public recognition.
But according to Kanha, Dev is the best husband in the girl whom any girl would be fortunate to have. Kanha hasn't so far said even once that Dev is fortunate in having Radhika as his wife or Radhika's love for him is supreme. This is the girl who is his devotee, has served everyone selflessly, endured all Dev's mistakes, stayed with Dev when he had nobody and he was a nobody but was willing to give him up when he was going to be somebody. So she gets punished severely for suggesting that she is willing to share her sindoor but Dev gets no punishment and gets all the sympathy from Kanha.
Even if somebody was Kanha devotee, they would stop being Kanha's devotee if this is how Kanha behaves. So my conclusion is that Dev is being whitewashed so that Barkha can be whitewashed. Just like Amma, her punishments are being buried for 10 minutes and getting few slaps from her mother.
2. So it not Rukmini, but it is real Urmila. This is the same woman who had no objections when her daughter was getting married to a guy who didn't want to marry her but was desperately in love with her daughter's best friend. This same woman had no problem when her unmarried daughter was declared RPtain and infact wanted her to get married to Dev and be his second wife. She had no problem that Radhika was leaving the house despite being the legitimate wife and real RPtain. Yet now she is being called nice by Kanha and is going to be protected by him if Barkha tries to harm her. The same Kanha stood silently while Radhika was being tortured. I guess this is the fate of true devotee. Urmila is here to stay just as Amma was there to stay with Vishaka. This is so that Barkha and Urmila can later on plot against real Radhika.
3. Dev's dialogues. I was thinking that he has become as irritating as possible. But I was wrong. Today I wanted to smack him real bad. I am surprised that creatives can make their male lead so unlikeable. He was pompously congratulating Radhika on getting her rights as these rights are his to give or take depending on Radhika's behavior. Then he wanted to hold her hand and told her again pompously that they would fight all battles together. He conveniently forgot that he had left her side a minute after telling her that he believed in her more than himself. He has broken all promises and yet keep on making new promises. Kanha keeps on getting impressed without mentioning that he broke all his previous promises so badly.
4. Kanha's dialogues that he wants to see Barkha would go as low as to deceive her mother was a joke. This is a psycho person who in order to snatch her friends rights on her husband, property and title has tortured her and killed her. She has tortured another human being who was sick at the time and has broken an innocent person's wrist to fulfil her goals. So is deceiving one's mother worse than this?
Anyway, my conclusion is that Barkha is going to be more than likely married to Rohan so that she can stay in the show. Nobody states that she can't get married until the truth comes out. Now the logic according to Dev's statement is that Barkha would get married and then he would bring out the truth about Radhika. Shouldn't it be other way around so that they can look for guys for Barkha. But it is not so because Barkha's marriage would be another secret marriage with Rohan. I don't think the truth about Barkha being Radhika's murderer is ever going to come out just as the truth about Amma never came out in CB1. According to Kanha, Barkha has been punished for all her wrongdoings and her last punishment would be marriage to Rohan.
Misti, I found the episode so intolerable that today I didn't even find one thing redeeming including Dev dreaming about Radhika. I just found him intolerable and fast forwarded even his scenes.
Now when I think of episodes before July 24th, I feel that they were gems in comparison to what is shown these days. To put it bluntly, CB has been pure garbage last few days. It is now a show of Barkha, actual Kanha and now Urmila. All three can not act and are the most irritating characters. So the criteria to hog limelight in CB is that one should not know how to act and be the most irritating and drab character.
