I have a confession to make. I’ve watched fifteen episodes of Pehredaar Piya Ki and to be honest, I should’ve just stopped at the promo. But the show’s blatant disregard for an audience’s intelligence makes my blood boil. This ‘9-year-old-prince-marries-an-18-year-old-princess’ cringe fest has put Sony TV on top of the TRP game! Are we really so easily blinded by false promotions that conveniently peg Pehredaar Piya Ki as the story of ‘a rare bonding’?
Apparently so. But since I’ve sacrificed significant grey matter on my journey with Diya from her blissed out maika to her scheming sasural, I must tell you that a LOT more is wrong with this idiotic royal bunch, than meets the eye.
