I love your parallel betn Sinha's case and Mahi's case. The two acted on their strong beliefs though the goals were different. Ananya's act is more selfless!
I don't think her stand is wrong in terms of protecting a broken vulnerable woman and certainly standing for her when people want to parade her mercilessly! Remember the Nidhi Rane case. Image what would happen to Mahi! Pitying is the worst and cheapest kind of fashionable gossiping! I am happy that Ananya at least tried to avoid such fate for Mahi.
Kabir is sensitive towards this issue and I m sure he must've something in his mind after that insightful input from Ananya. He might have presenting it sensitively but still It would inevitably had worst impact on Mahi and I shudder to think about her family! The things they would learn she had gone through! Its emotionally mutilating.
I would definitely support Ananya. There is no point about mistrust on her seniors here! Or even unprofessionalism. She was just demanding some time for Mahi and not essentially denying the story completely!
It was just that it all happened to fast.
Obviously, she wasn't even thinking about the repercussions when she decided to 'steal' Mahi away from KKN.. Or maybe she didn't care about e'm..
Coz her priority was to ensure that Mahi was rescued and treated, for her physical and psychological distress before she is made to face the camera, and the hypocritical world that shall rip her self-respect to shreds, once again..
Then again, looking at it from KKN and Kabir's POV, there was a better way to do it.. Of course, they haven't given her reasons to trust them, and so she did not..
Again, that's her POV, so no matter what we say, it cannot be designated as being right or wrong..
But looking at the larger picture makes me think that Kabir wasn't entirely wrong either..
Yes, he cited her unprofessional behaviour and sensitive nature as her faults..
But let's put it this way..
For how long will Ananya be able to protect Mahi? Even if she does, the psychological scars will never go away..
Of course, not right away but once Mahi has the reins of her life back, she will have to accept the reality and move on.. make attempts to gather what is left of her, and fight against the ones who deny her a right to live modestly..
And that is where, I feel Kabir's news presentation will be the saving grace..
There is no greater power than being able to influence the masses to THINK, and retrospect..
Reminds me of Sach ka Saamna.. Even if most of it was scripted, am pretty sure that the contestants went back home feeling proud of themselves.. Coz they emerged victorious in the end, despite their several shortcomings..
And if the story is able to do that for Mahi, I don't think she will ever need to be protected again..
Kabir is right in his way but he ought to respect this other viewpoint too. This issue is too sensitive and it merits tht!
He will, I think.. Or perhaps he already knew all of it from Laxman..
He wasn't being insensitive, I feel.. He was just annoyed that a person who had trusted him blindly once, took him for granted..
And as the Boss, he had every right to be furious.. Coz the integrity of their Channel is under threat, if they fail to deliver what they promised..
As for his speech on the media being 'dalals', that's yet another hard-hitting reality, that cannot be refuted.. The uglier side of journalism, perhaps Ananya has yet to witness it..
as for their conversations, oh I wished they had in detail about how he doesn't understand her! I was so dying to hear that!
Anyways, kabir being utmost profession a heart-to-heart conversation will have to wait. Though he has his own ways of seeking out personal info without sounding to personal!
Whereas Ananya takes up foolish ways!
Lol.. Soo true.. She's got to learn the tricks of the trade from the master himself..
Errmm, not a heart-to-heart one, but perhaps a few lines where he justifies what we're all echoing since last night.. 'There is no right or wrong, one simply has to find a middle ground..'
Perhaps that would lead to something more being said.. Or if not, atleast they'll be a step closer to unraveling each other..
I don't think Ananya would bring Mahi to KKN. It defies her whole point of fighting. Her current stance is not for KKN or even Kabir. Its for Mahi.
Exactly! And I feel kabir's story on the Celebrity Drug raid, will provoke her to think..
Even if she does bring Mahi to Kabir, or takes Kabir to Mahi, it will only be for Mahi..
Not because her story needs to be told, but because she deserves the right to be heard.. If she wants to..
Else the media will just pass her off as yet another ruined starlet..
It's now that she will understand the true power that the media yields over common people.. And if it can be used to help Mahi live a dignified life in the future, I see no reason why Ananya wouldn't want to do it.. Of course, only if and when Mahi is prepared, physically and mentally..
That scene was terrific and I loved the raw energy of emotions they exhibited. Ananya's was strong and unwavering. Kabirs was volcanic and daunting.
He shouldn't be taken for granted that he has already established strongly in many ways!
But Ananya is not going to learn. She loves the tag of "Rebel!"
Hahaha.. and that's what causes friction between them.. Which I love the most!
Kritika is very professional, talented, and choosy about her roles. I like the fact that RK brings his character alive like no one can ever do it! At first I thought Ananya's character was not up to the level for Kritika's caliber but now I can see why the Behl's chose her. She can portray strength without any show or style. It comes naturally to her. Her chirpiness and cuteness are her innate traits. And yes I love her refreshing smiles! Also she brings the innocence of Ananya pretty well and yet she is a woman of substance. Reminds me so much of that initial Arohi!
@Bold: I thought the same.. But she's proven her caliber over the past few weeks.. And I feel no other actress could have pulled it off now.. She managed to strike a balance between the several shades to Ananya, and has now made her a character worthy of remembrance..
