- Girls even if they are small girls can't sit and eat at the dining table, Surprisingly none of the male oppose this rule, neither the dad nor the uncle.
- MIL can threaten DIL anytime that she can send her to her parents house if she feels you are not following the rules of the house.
- And finally the reason Shlok baba is so upset is because the girl he loved left him. I wonder how did he even think any girl will stay in the house with the rules that archaic and with his mother. Agar pyaar kiya bhi hota na, then she would have backed off before the marriage if she were to visit this zoo once.
Hai Re NandKishore, this is the summary of IPK2. One week is more than enough for me to call this as utter crap. ASR was arrogant but never this bad even during the hate marriage phase. I wonder whom did Star Plus hire to write this story. It seems like they got completely mistaken by the character sketch for the leads. And SP seems to rope in old team to recreate the season 1 look. In today's credits, I saw Arshad Khan as one of the directors for this show.
Completely agree with your post.
Anjali/mother is unwatchable for me as I wanna reach into the tv and drag her by the bun and forcibly lecture her about what century she currently lives in.
Astha is too fake bubbly for me. Only 4 year olds prance around the house looking for their mom and dad in such a sing-song airy way! She needs to tone done a bit to be more palatable to me.
Shlok is over the top as well...needs anger management classes. And I am pretty convinced the actor has been really studying BS expressions and poses because I see them repeated onscreen. Maybe it is the director who is encouraging that?
Side characters do not captivate me. They have nothing of interest and cannot act. It has only been a few days so maybe this will change and they will get into character.
Anjali makes the show unwatchable for me.
They should show Shlok having some warm interactions with others...like Arnav-Anjali or Arnav-Akash scenes which were funny, tender and nice.
Even in the very first episodes, we had such warm interactions between Arnav and Anjali and you know that Arnav is respectful towards women even if he misbehaved with Khushi. Here I was stunned yesterday when the mom stays to the small girl to go inside and not eat at the dining table and neither Shlok, nor his brother said anything. I am sorry to say, those kind of characters don't appeal to me. You need to have some redeemable qualities if you need to click with the audience. I think most of us when we were watching IPK could sympathize with Arnav because Barun could bring the angst of Arnav and the pain he was going through quite effectively and even though Arnav was being a beast to Khushi, the audience knew that Arnav too was suffering. I don't see that happening here.
Avinash looks good but he looks way too older to his elder brother. And his stance and everything seems to be so rigid. I too agree that he is copying Barun in all the poses. But his eyes are not able to emote the feelings.
