This Charitar talks about how body language (wide eyes in this case) can be perceived differently.

Sheel Manjari was surprised by looking at her own husband, as she thought, he was a different man. Her eyes opened up wide in astonishment. The husband thought that she freaked out by looking at him (believing in his mind that he had caught her cheating with someone) and that's why her eyes opened up.

This Charitar is a bit related to the base tale.

Sheel Manjri has been duped to believe that the person in front of her (her husband) is someone else. In the base tale, Chitar Singh has married Chitar Mati, just because of the fact that she looked like his ex-wife. Maybe the wise minister is trying to convey to Chitar Singh that you have been tricked by looks.

This charitar also tells about false relationships. The woman in this charitar became a "dharam bhen" of the other woman. In the base tale the Queen is the Dharam Patni of the King but she also has ulterior motives.

Good point.

More importantly, Chitar Mati is a "dharam ma" of Hanuwant Singh.

The Shah left his faithful wife, Sheel Manjari for a vile woman. The similarity with the original tale can be seen as King Chitar Singh is trying to give his filial and righteous son a death penalty for his vile wife. 

The "Tale of Sheel Manjari" illustrated that women can do anything to get what they want, in this case the man the woman desired. In this way the smart minister gets Raja Chitar Singh to think from a different perspective, i.e. that Chitar Mati may indeed be fooling him and that Hanuwant Singh is not guilty. 

Even though, Sheel Manjari was very faithful to him, just for one gaze the Shah left her. He did not bother to think that his wife was faithful. In the original tale, Chitar Singh did not care about the righteous nature of his son and was ready to think that he was guilty. This applies to real-life in a sense, if someone is good at something or is a good person in general one slip can cost their whole reputation and people will only remember the mistake. Guru ji is telling us that we must think before we act or otherwise we might cause unnecessary disturbances in our lives.

Lack of thorough investigation on the part of the Shah and Chitar Singh, before making a decision.

The shah has a Hindu name, I wonder why, what are your views on this? 

Why are you wondering? Is it because "Shah" is usually a Muslim name?

Shah just means a rich person, as we say in Punjabi, "Shah Banda".
