Okay, Zee (MKrayZee) and me were discussing Nandini since last night and we had a, although short, but a feel good discussion about her and this is our outcome. This is our expectation and our understanding of Nandini.
One of the main reasons why we, and we think many others, liked this show was because of Nandini's character. She was different from the usual heroines. She was real. She was sweet but she could give as good as she got. Her morals were determined by herself and not by society. She set her own limits but she was not a prude. And she did not crumble when the hot lead singer was falling for her.
She was the girl carrying herculean weight over her shoulder with a smile. She was the girl who used optimism as her defense mechanism. Her knowledge in science couldn't shake her desire to believe in fairy tales. She had so much light within her that she didn't even thought before spreading it to her enemies. That was the Nandini Moorthy we first saw.
We are not saying that we want back the exact same
Nandini, because that would mean zero growth, but we surly want her essence
We do not have issues with how she has handled the Pandit track. We cannot expect a girl who always respected authority to suddenly challenge it and defy it. She took her time, she waited till she felt his actions were inappropriate and she reacted (fusion concert night).
Our issue is that she has become dependent on Manik. For everything. This girl had her own individuality and that seems to have vanished. We are not saying that she goes around punching everyone, no. And yes it is obvious that Nandini has gone through so much in the last 6/7 months that her light has dimmed. Anyone would become more subdued after all that she has been through. Even her replies now are not as spunky as they used to be. But her moral compass? Her ability to show Manik that he is wrong? What happened to that?
track, that was one thing that pissed us, what happened to her moral compass?
For all her perception, she knows Manik listens to her, her internalizes what
she says. Every. Single. Word. We never told her to give up on Manik, no that
is not Nandini, but we would have loved to see her calling out Manik time and
again on his stupidity, just like she did in ice cream scene. We would have
been delighted if she could show Manik the exact mirror to what he was doing.
We liked the amputation track because she took the decision to walk out, because she felt they were toxic. Because she could not deal with it. It was her choice. Her opinions. Her stance. For both of them.
We need this individuality back. I agree, it's in human nature to depend someday or other on someone but then you always need to remember not to depend so much that you forget your own element and merge onto their's. With Pandit track, I agree, psychologically Pandit paralyzed her emotionally, taking away from her, her capabilities to react rightfully and depend on Manik. In this, her dependence is because of both Pandit's brain games and Manik's reassurance that he will always protect her. She clanged onto his promise like a parched traveler to last drop of water in a desert.
But, ain't it too much on her?
Where is her breaking point?
There has to be one because she is no machine, she is
How much can a person take before they snap? How much before they lash out? How much hope before you become cynical? How much good before you show your middle finger to the world? She is human. Not an angel. She has a light within her and she shines for Manik but what about her? When and why did she stop shining for herself? We need her to have a meltdown. We need her to lash out. We need her to crumble, to shatter before she can rise up anew as a phoenix.
She needs a break from all this. She needs her space...her own issues, unrelated to Manik. Her choices. Her love. Her dislikes. Her career. Her music
She needs to burn herself down for her to rise from her ashes, like a phoenix.
More stronger, more fierce.
