There was a number of hype round ‘Suno Chanda 2′ ever because the sequel for the present was introduced. The premise of the present is unquestionably distinctive in Pakistan, a comedy present that airs solely throughout Ramazan. It’s nice to have a present which you could simply snigger too, particularly throughout Ramazan, when your schedule is completely off.
Now, I’m going to start out this off by saying that I didn’t watch ‘Suno Chanda’, however due to all of the content material being created on the present, I had a great understanding of the storyline and what dynamics the characters had aapas mein (due to all our protection of the primary season final Ramazan)
After the second season began airing, I watched the second episode and located some manifestly disturbing themes and plot factors.
Firstly, Jiya’s plans to go for her Grasp’s diploma, and the way everybody within the family responds to the information.
Arsal’s excessive response to the information set the tone to how the remainder of the episode was going to cope with the subject. Jiya’s want to go overseas for her Grasp’s was clearly not information for anybody, in order that leaves the query; what was everybody hoping to occur to that want after she acquired married? Clearly, they have been hoping she wouldn’t wish to go anymore.
Furthermore, as an alternative of attempting to resolve this (slightly pointless) disagreement between themselves, Arsal RUNS out of his room and straight to Bi-Jaan’s aspect to complain about his spouse. Because the clear matriarch in the home, I hoped she would give a extra balanced response, even one thing so simple as ‘let’s all take into consideration how this going to occur’, however she clearly advised Jiya to decide on her marriage over her desires. I actually do hope that the present does develop this story level additional as a result of there are a number of episodes left.
This results in my different concern with the Arsal and Jiya’s relationship.
Any hiccup that comes up between them, they run to their ‘elders’. They haven’t any functionality of fixing points between themselves, and every time they take their points to another person they act like complete kids. I perceive that they JUST acquired married, however they haven’t any understanding in any way of easy methods to converse to one another. Greater than that, everybody else within the household sees to ‘child’ them and cope with their points with some extent of nonchalance. It looks like all of the ‘elders’ simply wish to get them quiet, slightly than really get the problems solved.
Take the entire ‘mujhe aap bulao’ concern raised by Arsal. He makes an enormous concern about what Jiya calls him now that they’re married- clearly, this was a dialogue that wanted to occur earlier than they acquired married however right here we’re. The best way the drama offers with this concern is simply horrible. It units the fallacious precedent about how these items have to be resolved and in addition how marriage and respect in marriage have to be constituted. It is a present that’s airing in 2019, it must meet up with the instances.
Additionally, the present is exhibiting a wierd model of affection.
Arsal is proven, on a number of events, sweet-talking Jiya when she’s mad at him, and instantly her coronary heart softens up. Their fights aren’t about small issues, they’re generally having some fairly main arguments, however as an alternative of speaking it out like two regular adults, they go into this lovey-dovey mode and bas, every part’s okay. It is a very outdated world method of exhibiting love in dramas and it must go now. This isn’t lifelike and is unquestionably now relatable.
Lastly, I’ve a number of points with the extraordinarily stereotypical depiction of Punjabis and in addition utilizing that tradition as a ‘joke’.
We’ve had lengthy discussions concerning the depiction of Punjabis, and in addition utilizing Punjabis as a joke in dramas. In ‘Suno Chanda 2′, Pinnu is a chief instance of that. Her loud persona and ‘jokes’ are the laughing level for the present. There’s a must continue to grow our scripts and our drama ideas, and this depiction of Punjabis is archaic and doesn’t slot in with the brand new age of movie and tv.
The present has a HUGE platform and a number of alternatives to assist see individuals a completely totally different paradigm, nevertheless, the present selected to not problem sure perceptions. There’s senseless humor, and should you watch it mindlessly, you’ll snigger, nevertheless, should you take a step again, you’ll see that there’s loads fallacious with how the present goes thus far.
