Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi

Ishwari of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi has been through some tough situations where her only support and hope was her son, Dev and her 100% emotional dependence was on him.

Every time, Dev did something that favoured his wife against his mom, even though he does not mean any such thing, Ishwari felt her relationship with him was threatened. And, because she doesn’t see any weakness in her son, she blamed Sonakshi for it.

Even during the fight, pre-leap, she said, she has seen Dev drunk only twice and both times the reason for it was Sonakshi. Ishwari fails to see that it is her son who turns to alcohol in his weak moments.

To her, she has not seen any situation that should inspire her to change her thinking. Changing one’s thinking requires that one should realise a fault in one’s ways. Everything, Ishwari looks at, is with her skewed perspective. After all, there is nothing wrong in loving her son and wanting the best for him. Ishwari does not see it as a fault. She sees it as her responsibility.

Also, when Ishwari handed Dev the pre-nuptual agreement, she said, she does not have any hand in it, when in reality, she was the one who got the papers made, and she told him that she knew Sonakshi was not right for him. She also reminded Dev of his sisters and pointed out that those papers were a shield against Sonakshi.

Ishwari’s view is skewed. She is not inherently a bad person. She does not want ill of others. She only wants good for her family. Her experiences have formed her life’s view and she has no reason to change it.

As per her, she is not the one who has caused the family’s downfall. As per her, she accepted Sonakshi for her son, even against her own better judgment. As per her, she has made allowances, taken initiatives, laid down her own wishes – so that her son would be happy.

What she does not like about Sonakshi is her independence. She wants someone just like her for her son. Someone who would not demand her own opinion and her own space – in other words, who would not get a space between the mother and the son.

Ishwari is acting just as per her character. If such a person is threatened in any emotional way, they either fall apart or retaliate just as she did.

When you write a story, you have to justify every character. This character has a strong backstory. Letting go of that, would rip the character of their emotional make-up. Even the villains have their points of view. and they see themselves justified in their own view.

  1. I have a slightly different perspective though! Its very difficult to believe that Ishwari is a good soul after all that happened! A mother so obsessive that every bit was so conditional! Expecting Sonakshi to bear a child despite knowing the problems. Getting the prenuptial document signed by Dev in a tricky manner.The deficits she saw in Sonakshi could not be applied to her daughter Neha! Indeed a skewed approach . On top of it believing Vicky and getting instigated by GKB though she was aware about these traits of theirs! She did all this just to remove the hurdle Sonakshi from that space between her and her son but in the process she ruined his life! Will she realise that ? I hope she does! I loved her when the serial started and was aghast with her character at the end. Having said that,we still have such women in today’s society and thats the unfortunate part.

  2. Someone is sensible here! Else, everyone just keeps bashing her. Ishwari has her own reasons – and reasons are not right or wrong, until they start hurting someone. And Ishwari’s reasons eventually did. But one has to be sensitive enough to understand her intentions and insecurities.

  3. How did she accepted and loved Sonakshi when she thought she became pregnant? How selfish she is? if ahe can control soneoes life and he/she meets her expectations she is happy. She has no expectations and complete trust only on GKB and Vickey. Life will teach her lessons hopefully.

  4. So correctly said. It’s very important in life to accept relationship , eschewing pre conceived notions. One should give relationships time to sail forward and strengthen. Ishwari let herself be a victim to her own prejudices and delusions and failed to see things in the right perspective. Added to it GK B fuelled her emotions and she lent a ear to all the crap. It’s sad to see a basically good human being like Ishwari , be a victim of skewed emotions. I suppose it’s all Karma.
