Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon…Ek Baar Phir

As if television was lacking regressive ideas and here we get a number of more such ideas that showcases various ways to raise the bar and standard of domestic violence through Star Plus’ Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon…Ek Baar Phir. So much for promoting the ‘Nayi Soch’ of the top GEC on television? ‘Love and Hate’ stories are nothing new on television. But with each new show exploring this genre, the ‘hate’ part is slowly drifting towards ‘superstitions’ and ‘cruelty’. Didn’t we have enough stories on this genre already? The mere necessity of showcasing this extreme range of regressive stuff is unacceptable and completely uncalled for.

In the upcoming week of Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon..Ek Baar Phir Aastha (Shrenu Prikh) will be instructed to eat in the same plate in which Shlok (Avinash Sachdev) does. Being the loyal ‘bahu’ of the family, she is expected to follow the family traditions and this being one of the great traditions in the family, Aastha needs to abide by it.

But wait, the trauma doesn’t stop here. We have to stoop down more to watch further regressive stuffs. Aastha is also asked to clean Shlok’s feet in order to perform the ritual of ‘Pati Pujan’. Moreover, she is also forced to drink that water after cleaning his feet considering the water as the holy ‘charanamrut’.

While we are still wondering about why the makers are promoting ‘superstitions’ just to press the button of ‘hatred’ more in the storyline, you can choose whether you want to watch this episode or not.

  1. I’m not sure if the show will really have the desired effect on the audience… IPK2 takes the concept of women condoning the violence they receive at the hands of the men/ in laws in their lives, for whatever beliefs and feelings they hold, to an extreme—Anjali because of her warped sense of reverence to her husband, Jyoti through fear and now Astha because of blackmail… When I’m watching the show, more often than not I’m rolling my eyes thinking “is this for real? women actually talk like that? people actually think like this?” Not in the society I live in and as such, for me, it’s very difficult to relate to the ‘extreme’ of the show. I do like it that Astha stands up to Shlok when he tries to intimidate her and dares to treat Kavya as she should be treated, behind her mother in law’s back. But Anjali is a puzzle. She actually makes herself look like a she devil and her husband the more reasonable one of the lot when in reality it’s the other way round. Even Shlok does this to some extent and I don’t really understand the purpose behind that. Is it to show that we often don’t realise how cruel some people can actually be because they hide their actions so well? Maybe… I’m just not able to relate to that over the top portrayal of women trying to hide the faults of their men and sons going out of the way to marry women, pretend to be in love and all that and subject himself to a loveless marriage in the process just so he can get payback for a minor incident concerning a mere girl and his father… Mehhh anyway…
