Who believes JA is true...that show is also fiction with all the trash being dished out constantly...but only the presentation doesn't give rights to call Siyasat or for that matter the book as a historical.
If you think Indu is being honest by first writing in the story that Rahimi belonged to Rukku and then in the end clearing the air by telling that it belonged to MUZ...then JA is also being honest in putting its anuchit NR disclaimer, every now and then in the show...she clarified in the book point by point what she imagined, which was not there in history and thus the story is fictional...so JA puts disclaimer as a whole lot.
The salim-anar-akbar triangle may not be gross to many of you, but for me it was...the gossip of Salim-Anar love story was also there without this Akbar love angle...she could have touched upon that...Indu very cleverly tarnished the Mughals here IMO.
Charu is too limited as an actress, she too lacks nuances, if some other actress lacks acting skills it doesn't favour Charu either.
Mandy, all I'm saying is, if you do want to debate things, you have to base facts on historical account, documents, etc. and not fictional novels based on historical, when you get answers in form of references of history books and documents, you have to be ready with your artillery as well...and you do get where I'm pointing to.
Let not this reel, crap of JA blur or demean our sensibilities to the real JA figure that did exist, in what superiority or importance can be contended.
Good points and well articulated.
Mishti - Even akbar nama I will take with a bit of salt if he keeps referring to some narrative - But it is more like a diary and there is another financial accounting/ salaries info diary which is huge and well maintained. The moment anyone sits and records some events/happenings in life there is an element of drama added to it - Just the % is different - But Akbar name and successive histories have recorded Akbar's achievements and style of governance clearly and I will go with these for Akbar - Anything else on Akbar, especially the love life is blind spot for me. No source can be relied upon.
