Jodha Akbar - 23.September.2013

Post by ShaliniRobinson on 2013-09-24, 10:58

Jalal, the Judge
---
 
It is a good thing that Jalal is a king. He wouldn't have had a successful career as a certain Mr. Holmes!
 
Jalal made the same mistakes with Maaham's case that he made with Jodha's case.
 
In both cases, he was certain that he is right in his understanding of the person and of the situation. Although he has taken learning from his failure with Jodha's case in ensuring sufficient investigation; yet, he hasn't learned the lesson - rise above your emotions to see the truth.
 
Jalal's failure in executing judgment comes from his mindset.
 
With Jodha, he started with the mindset that Jodha is wrong.
With Maaham, he started with the mindset that Maaham is right.
 
Until proof was found, Jalal was certain that Jodha couldn't possibly be innocent.
However, in this case, his love and affection for Maaham possibly far outreaches his hatred for Jodha.
Even in the face of proof, he was certain that Maaham couldn't possibly be wrong.
 
In both cases, it is by emotions and feelings that he makes initial judgments which, of course, color his perception going forward and have an obvious impact on the final judgment.
 
*
 
In Jalal's defense:
He does use his mind. He does try to investigate with an unbiased approach. He does give it time and multiple attempts of questioning and investigation.
 
What defeats him is not really Maaham's intellect alone - it is his inner struggle with acceptance of Maaham as a murderess, and his tendency to believe everything that comes from Maaham on face value.
 
*
 
As usual, Jalal is blinded - by virtue of him being a potent combination of all-powerful, heartless, and shrewd - to the fact that the people he has allowed near him are the ones who've known him all his life. Nothing wrong with that - except that they know him as well as he knows himself, and in some cases, better than he knows himself.
 
These are the people who, if they love him, would guide him to be his best - but if they were to hate him or see him as an object that gives them power, they would use and manipulate him and he wouldn't smell a rat.
 
*
 
By the way, it is both interesting and funny that a man who claims to be heartless is driven by emotions to the point of being blinded by them!
 
*~*
 
Maaham - Who?
---
 
It is pretty clear that Maaham has once again pulled yet another layer of wool over Jalal's already well-covered eyes. For all it matters, Jalal may well be a blind man, sadly, led by someone walking him to his fall.
 
 
Even Maaham's own son could not make her admit her crime, and he knows her better than Jalal does.
 
Jalal couldn't sniff out the difference between the real Maaham and the fake Maaham despite his multiple questions.
 
It would be no surprise to discover that the woman who answered his questions to prove her identity as the real Maaham, and the woman who answered his questions incorrectly to prove her identity as the fake Maaham - was the real Maaham.
 
I wonder if she'd count on the fake Maaham to answer to Jalal incorrectly to prove the fakeness (for the want of a better word).
 
All she needed was for Jalal to know that there are two of them. And she can very easily manage that.
 
Maaham doesn't need to wear a disguise. Maaham doesn't need to threaten. Maaham doesn't need to ask pertinent questions.
 
She lets Jalal do all that dirty work, while she - so to speak - enjoys the sun in her very real avatar, Maaham herself.
 
*
 
Interestingly, Maaham is perfect for the job of a vazeer-e-aaliya, if and only if she was loyal.
 
 
*~*
 
The Choice to be Free - Really!?
----
 
Does Jodha really have a choice?
As per Jalal she does, however, perhaps, Jodha knows that whatever Jalal said is meaningless in the face of her current reality.
 
Jodha did not decide to marry Jalal for her own sake. It came as a response to the call for duty towards her motherland, her people, and her family.
I doubt the decision to stay with or leave Jalal would come for her own sake. She'd still, probably, go with whatever's best for her motherland, her people, and her family.
 
 
*
 
As per Precap, Jodha doesn't believe Maaham's game.
She's got a good eye. But is she a match for the awesome Maaham?!
 
Let's wait n' watch!

Thank you, buddy! :)

Actually, as of now, no one stands anywhere near Maaham.
With the current royal flock, it would be a coalition in the common interest of catching Maaham red handed that'll do in Maaham.

Else...

Jalal should've seen it though. There were just TOO many loopholes in Maaham's story.

However, the plus point was - Maaham didn't tell any stories. She let Jalal do the talking on her behalf.

That's the beauty of Maaham Anga's game!

I am SO impressed with this character.
Both the writer of the character and its scenes, and Ashwini who plays her - are REMARKABLE!!
