Originally posted by Sandhya.AThe main flaw that pulled the show down was the excessive mahanfying of Jo and buddhufying of Jalal.
Next all Ruqs interference and jo-ja romance in their youth and NOW when their son sa is busy with a mature romance and war, their coochy cooing as though they have nothing else to do. And the extremely unbelievable one woman man-ishness of a man with a full harem. Amd not to miss the 2 feet 90 degrees hand in between drab romance.
Third villifying Ruqs by the afeeming and the mud on head drama which is totally in poor taste inspite of knowing that she can't be punished excessively as per history.
Then the absolute lack of Mughal flavor in Agra.
And such an average Salim and an Anarkali who is nowhere near the khaatil-beauty that made a prince stand against his Emperor dad.
Finally only such love stories are appealing that inspires. Here Akbar should have been shown as to have developed a broader mind and heart due to Jodha that improved his personality and inspired him to become Great. But tjis Jodha's love has made him a buddhuram and all he does is look bewildered and lost and his brains seem to have shrunk sesame size
Of course, this story is not Akbar the Great and so need not focus only on jis achievements. But then this is not Akbar at all. Even if posterity cares to reminiscence the love story it is only because it id the love story of a Great man. (Else nobody would be bothered to know about the marriage of Aziz Koka and his Rajvanshi begum though that too was a marriage of contrasts.) Now when the Greatness of the very man is compromised and he made a fool for the standard EK Heroine mahaanta, the linchpin of the story is lost and the story gets thrashed and in tatters.
RIP JA- the show that was magical for 80 episodes.
VERY WELL SAID SANDHYA
AKBAR'S CHARACTER HAS BEEN ASSASSINATED BEYONG RETRIBUTION. HIS GREATNESS (?) IS ABSOLUTELY INVISIBLE. AFTER EPIC LOOUU STARTED, THE FIRST WAR THAT HE FOUGHT WAS WON FOR HIM BY BEGUMSA. THE SECOND WAR HE ACTUALLY FOUGHT FOR BEGUMSA
EVERY ACTION OF HIS MAKES HIM SINK DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO THE LABRYNTHS OF MORONITY. HIS BE ALL AND END ALL IN LIFE SEEMS TO BE MAKING BEGUMSA SMILE
EVEN JODHA, FOR THAT MATTER, IS NO BETTER. SHE DID START OUT AS A FIERY PRINCESS WITH GUTS AND GALL, BUT AGAIN, EPIC LUBBB DISSOLVED EVERYTHING. NOW SHE IS THIS WEEPY EVER SUFFERING ABLA NAARI, WHO JUST BEARS THE WORLD'S SORROWS AND CHASTISES HER HUBBY FOR ALL AND SUNDRY. FOR EVERYTHING THAT SHE CRIES BUCKETS FULL FOR - HUBBY DEAR IS RESPONSIBLE
LIKE YOU SAID EVERYTHING WAS FINE TILL THE FIRST 80-100 EPISODES.
THEN SOMEHOW LOUUU SURFACED AND FROM THEN ON, EACH TRACK HAS BEEN INTOLERABLE AND TOTALLY DEVOID OF EVERY LOGIC. (HISTORY? WO KIS CHIDIYA KA NAAM HAI?
EVEN POOR SALIMSA HAS NOT BEEN SPARED. EVER SINCE HE IS BORN, HE HAS BEEN PORTRAYED AS THIS NEGATIVE CHARACTER WHOSE MAINSTAY IN LIFE IS HATRED. IT IS THUS UNFATHOMABLE FOR US TO DIGEST HOW A PERSON WITH SUCH A LOW EQ AND AN EVEN LOWER EMOTIONAL RANGE CAN BOAST ABOUT LOVING SOMEONE TO DEATH
HIS EPIC LOOOUUU IS THE WORST OF ALL
