This is to give you my opinion about this show – “Yeh Hai Mohabattein” – on Star Plus:
The Story : A very beautiful story about two different cultural backgrounds (North Indian and Southern Indian) and the issues they go through in the matrimonial union of Raman and Ishita. A very realistic story that many people and families could identify with.
The Plot : The dimension about ex-spouse (Shagun) involved in the dynamics of Raman and Ishita’s marriage – makes sense because “divorce” is becoming a reality of our culture today.
The Twist : The death of Shagun and the ghost of Shagun possessing Ishita – is so far fetched – for 2 reasons :
1. Paranormally – this is not a proven phenomenon – so in this age of science – this is loosing its grip.
2. From a stand point of showing Women’s strength – which this show was successful (so far) in showing through the character of Ishita – who has faced and succeeded through many odds – is now shown to be so weak as to take up the traits of a dead x-spouse of her husband (who she has been detesting. What a paradox ? This is getting many people to switch off their television sets or to flip the channel.
Please resolve the murder mystery through official channels like the police and not through ghosts because it not only makes things unbelievable but also makes our police look incapable.
TR would like to thank Bhavna Thakkar(Psychologist) for her input.
