Smriti Di, you've summed everything up so beautifully......your words actually have brought tears to my eyes.
Arghhh if i could strangle SA believe me i wld........the woman was clearly insane missing such an amazing scene out. I mean what was she thinking? this is one of THE defining moments of RD's relationship na and it should have been for AY too. I mean for goodness sake it's such an important scene - Diego/Yuvi finally sees that Roberta/Ashi still loves him as much as ever - that moment when he opens his eyes n sees her staring down at him - you said it before i think di, it's like a vision of eternity - seeing the girl he loves sitting there before him, tears in her eyes at his condition and realising that she still loves him, that the whole election thing, her standing against him wasn't her going against him. It's such a crucial moment!!!! N I can just picture how Yuvi wld look at Ashi - his eyes slightly glazed, that momentary confusion in his expression as he gains consciousness again - and then how his face would just suddenly be filled with that glow of love as he sees his vision of salvation and knows that she saved him. Omg it wld have been so magical - just imagining it is giving me gooses - can't you feel the intensity of that moment only by imagining it on AY - just think how awesome it wld have been in reality.
N then afterwards when he wld open his soul to her - i mean, come on, this was sooooo important!!!! The only person Diego/Yuvi could ever share his deepest darkest fears n feelings with was Roberta/Ashi n this scene shows it soooo perfectly. I mean how often does Diego/Yuvi actually say what's in his heart? Not very often na - but in this scene he just pours his heart out to her n it's such a special moment btwn them n i still fume whenever i think that SA denied AY this chance!!!! N the hugggggggg - omg, i go into a fit of shivers all over whenever Diego pulls Roberta into his arms. The way she struggles against her feelings really tugs at my heartstrings - she was sooo frightened of the magnitude of her love for him n of being hurt again but when he puts his arms about her, when she feels his breath on her face n sees his soul reflected in his eyes she can't fight it anymore. N the way those tears of mixed anguish and relief shimmer in her eyes always kills me - it was such an intense moment n I know, i know that Raj-Priya would have re-created the emotional intensity of midnight picnic all over again - they wld have taken the show to a new level with the way they wld display AY's emotions - Raj wld show perfectly the inner pain of Yuvi at thinking he has lost everything good in his life, esp his salvation, his Ashi; n Priya, man i can picture her expression as Ashi hugs Yuvi n i know there wld have been soooo much of love n pain in her eyes that we all wld have been choked.
And omg, Di, the way Diego says 'Roberta, Roberta, Roberta' always leaves me in shivers
Just hearing how Yuvi wld say 'Ashi, Ashi, Ashi' n imagining that agony in his tone, the longing and despair, the need to have her in his life, to save him from himself - omg it wld have been so beautiful.
N i tell u another scene that always makes me mad is the one where Diego kidnaps Roberta n then they handcuff themselves to one another - why didn't they do that on AY??? It wld have been soooo beautiful a scene, so touching n such a symbolic moment of their love for each other. Damn SA for cutting all these important moments......she needs her head examined, that's all I can say.
