yes her look is too polished & too urbane & too unreal for a deglam village girl. But I think the reason is, & this is solely my thought, that firstly the makers want to enhance her beauty because of rudra's father's cautionary tale to him that beautiful girls can never be anyone's. I think the colorful, flashy clothes are there, because, next week onwards, Paro will be a widow, stripped off of all color & chamkila things. They may have wanted to emphasize that. This is the reason for all the unnecessary skin show??? Sorry but I dont buy it. SI looks out of place with everyone else fully clothes but her... I have no issues with the colors of the outfit. Rajasthan is known for colorful clothes... And forget the forum. This is what I personally dislike about RR and SI's character.
& yes, I agree, & I am waiting for her character involvement after she becomes a widow..a first for sanz (& I am so happy its a first for her & it didn't happen in my show!)
& I disagree that, without all out rajasthani from sanz the show wouldn't feel authentic. I will talk of two show here:
1.I have seen more QH than I care to admit.. A khala of mine followed it. Uttering Allah Miya & adding Miya after each male character's name while calling him & adding ayen-gayen(Arabic letters) to each word's diction doesn't make it any more authentic to me than if they hadn't done it. I HATE THAT SHOW! Fari in India more people speak Hindi/ Madwadi/ Punjabi/ and other local languages than they do Urdu. Muslims are a minority and Urdu is more or less confined to Lucknow and small UP/MP towns. I have had non-muslims ask me the difference between Arabic Urdu and Persian as for many all is the same. Toh QH main thoda bhi Urdu people get awed. That is why I also mentioned Na aana and BV... And there are so many others re.
2. IPK smelled of Lucknow till the very end! It screamed of Lucknow! But main characters of the show, like Arnav, Anjali, Akaash never uttered so much as 10 lucknowi words! But Nani & Bua, & the elders characters were out and out Lucknowi & that made it authentic to the T! So I think, even in RR's case too, there is not that much need for the leads to garble incomprehensible rajasthani all the freakin' time! The elder characters could do it all the time, but spare the leads! They can speak in the simplified rajasthani that BV leads speak in! Even in BV the more rigorous rajasthani is reserved only for the bhabi character & every other character speaks a much watered down version of rajasthani..Anandi speaks more of a shudh hindi than rajsthani in fact IPK was a show based in Delhi. Arnav and Anjali moved out of Lnow when they were kids. Aakash was never there. Their schooling and up bringing was in Delhi... They would look out of place being Lnowi. The elder characters had their roots in Lnow and had stayed there for long. Their language therefore reflected it. Payal and Khushi grew up in a Lucknow which was a growing town. Therefore the proper Hindi and not the Lnowi of Bua, Nani et al.
But in RR's case, those characters have been born and brought up in a small Rajasthani village. They are supposed to speak Rajasthani and that is it. I read in one article it is a very small, cut from the world kinda village where people still find partition something they cant relate to. So, their entire world is their village. If they dont speak Rajasthani it will look odd. And BV ka town in Rajasthan is a way more developed one than that of RR with proper schools, hospitals, even a microwave!!! They are more connected to the world outside. Upon that Anandi has done her schooling in Hindi. Therefore the Hindi re...
The more I read your comments, the more I realise BV has done some great work on their characters and RR has done a sketchy one.
If you choose to reply to it do it in a fresh post
