Shlok has finally shown his true colors just like we predicted
Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon Ek Baar Phir takes the love-hate relationship a notch higher than the previous season, but we don’t like it one bit. Treating women like a doormat and insinuating that it’s her duty to always be below men is beyond infuriating.
The minute Shlok (Avinash Sachdev) and Astha (Shrenu Parikh) began their love story we predicted that something seems amiss. It was too early for Shlok to get all goody. As soon as the duo tied the knot, the dishy dude started showing his true colours. His real motive to marry Astha was apparently to take revenge.
He categorically tells her that she will live the rest of her life as his personal servant doing everything he says – good or bad. He further adds that she can’t go back home ‘coz she has hurt her parents enough and if they know the truth they will not be able to bear it. And telling anyone at his house will not benefit her either.
We are sure, like any daily soap in the end Shlok will be forced to change, he will fall in love and marry Astha all over again and this time it will be for love. What utter crap!
Ideally how long is Astha expected to tolerate her maniac husband? Every time he tortures her, humiliates her and treats her like shit – she will continue going back to him and ask for more? Is that what the character is going to do? ‘Coz such a show is beyond derogatory and insults the state of women’s affairs in the country.
And how far will Shlok go with his mode of torture? Will he also force her in bed to make her submit?
