Here goes my longest comment till now on IF! Are you ready for it?
Never did in my life I had ever thought that a TV Serial can bind so many together. And, also leads me to a land where I can see so many "me"s all around. Hehehe... jokes apart...don't you agree with me? And then this paved the way to a fic which has an equal preference to me with the show. DMG 5 years from now!!!
I don't remember telling you my favourite scenes till now. I am going to list them all and add a few comments here and there :D. Here you go!
But tonight was special. Tonight was different. Tonight, at 12, the day would change to the day he had met Riddhima Shashank Gupta, now Riddhima Armaan Mallik, for the first time. And they were going to celebrate it. It was their night, their day, their celebration.
- From here the journey started and I am glad to be a part of it!
He was such an amazing person. She had been married to him for 3 years, they had had a beautiful daughter together, she had known him since 5 years and yet she was amazed at how she got to know something new about him every day.
Atul: kia yaar'hum jab bhi attay hain who so rahi hoti hai'
Armaan: Champ who bachi hai'.6 mahinay ki'soye gi nahi to kia tere tarah pura din bakk bakk kerti rehey gi??
Atul: acha yaar dantata kyun hai'
- I had laughed so much after reading this.. this is so typical Armaan-Atul. :D
She heads over to the kitchen, and Armaan follows, holding Emaan.
Armaan: par yeh tumhare pass aker to chup ho gai thi'mere pass atay hi ronnay lag jati hai'(making a face)
Riddhima: (smirks) han Armaan'kyunki mein uski maa hun'who pehchanti hai mujhe'
Armaan: kia matlab? Main bhi to uss ka baap hun'.mujhe kyun nahi pehchanti'
Riddhima: Armaaaaaaan!! Kyunki who pura din mere pass rehti hai iss liye'aur abhi to bohat choti hai'jese jese barri hogi tumhain pehchaan jayegi'
Armaan: hmmmm'lekin mujhe yeh samajh nahi ata ke bachon ko pata kese chal jata hai ke kaun uski maa hai'
Riddhima: Armaan..tum adhi raat ko paglon jese sawal matt karo'
- a very cute scene of AR
Padma smiles and puts up a hand to his hair to flatten them down'.Armaan smiles and then puts his head in Padma's lap. She is surprised, but still smiles, patting his head lightly.
Padma: kia baat hai Armaan'koi pareshani hai kia?
Armaan: hmmmmm'..(very seriously)
- cute bonding of Armaan-Padma. Love it!
Rahul: matlab jisse hum larki samajh rahay tay who koi murjhai hui jharri hai??
Atul: ay Rahul'.meri Rhea ko esa na keh..woh to itna pyarir hai'harray harray paton aur rangeen phulon wali'
Armaan and Rahul straighten up, looking forwards, giving each other the exasperated 'ye kabhi nahi sudhrega' look
Atul: arey tum logon ko kia hua?
Armaan: harray haarray patay'forget it (shrugging)'Champ tu sach main'.champ hi hai'(snickering)
Atul: lo! Ab maine kia kar dia?
- hahahahaha.. an unforgettable TACOS scene!!!
This was how life had meant to be. This was what they had dreamt of when they had thought of their happily-ever-after. They need not have rip-roaring passionate romance everyday, though they did enjoy it too, they still preferred the quietness of the night like this one, the moon-light, a cool breeze, with them sitting together and just feeling the love around them. That was romantic enough. Armaan sighed as he thought of how many sleepless nights he had spent and how many tears had been wept for these beautiful moments to take place. As both Armaan and Riddhima gazed into each other's eyes with love, they took a trip down memory lane of how hard they had fought against the odds of the world to get here.
- such a beautiful scene!!
Armaan, sitting in the labs, taking down notes of a biopsy report of a patient, smiled as the ward boy gave him a note that Dr. Riddhima had left for him. He excitedly opened it, and this is what it read:
Itna pamper kero gey to iss janam main to kia, kisi bhi janam main tumhain dobara chor ke nahi ja paungi. Sorry, mille beghair ja rahi hun. Yaad se khud bhi kuch khaa lena aur please time per ghar chalay jana. I missed you today, wese. Ajeeb hai na, jab pass hote to tumhain khud jannay ko kehti hun, jab chalay jatay ho to dil kerta hai tumhain wapas bula loon. Pagal ho gai hun, hehe. Apna khyal rakhna. Main tumse kal milti hun.
P.s. I love you!!
He read it about 5 times. Her love and care just radiated out of the small letter. He smiled, reading aloud YOUR BASKET many times. He pocketed the note, he meant to keep it with him forever.
- hayee.. very very sweet na!
Armaan: hmmm'sirf best friend??
Riddhima: uh-hhuhhh'(shakes her head) best friend hi nahi'you are everything to me'.my guardian, my saviour, my shield, my soul mate'.my love'my life'
Armaan's face breaks into e genuine and huge smile as he hears those words from her mouth. The amount of honesty in her eyes told him that every word carried a lot of meaning in it.
- Love this scene to the core!
When Armaan takes her to his house.. all the scenes that follow...surrprise, gussa, Riddhima not eating..
hah!!! Enjoyed reading it all along.
Then comes Karwachauth.. that was simply superb!!!!!! Just Love it the core!
Riddhima tries to manaao Armaan... on his bday she arranges a quite surprise and they both get back
together. That was just toooooo beautiful!!!!!!Lovely!!!! Romantic!!!!!! :D
Armaan's bday date out with Riddhima-- awesomely written by you.
Riddhima: Armaan…mujeh tumhain aik aur baat batani hai….
Armaan: hey bhagwan!! Aj mujhe zinda salamat ghar puhancha dena…(looking up) warna yeh madam to
mujhe surprises de de ker maar deingi…(laughs, then looks at her) haan bolo…
Riddhima: (puffs her cheeks, and pouts) (speaks in a childlike manner) I love your dimples!!
Armaan stares at her for a second, surprised, then they both start laughing.
- Dimples... hayeeee... sweetie sweet one!!!
Armaan: Riddhima….iss dunia main hum bohat baar different references se jannayy jattay hain…jaisay ke
tum…Dr. Shashank Gupta ki beti….(with his hands apart and his eyes wide, trying to imply something big)
….Head-Nurse Padma ki beti…..Dr. Anjali Gupta, the most competent intern, ki behen…..Dr. Armaan Mallik,
the most good-looking guy, ki girlfriend….(chuckles a little)
Armaan: par iss sab ko chor ker tumhain ye prove kerna hai ke tum in sab rishton se hatt ker bhi bohat kuch
ho…you are an individual…you have your identity…to tum uss identity ko banao, aur aissa banao ke sab
tumhain Dr. Riddhima Gupta ke torr per yaad kerein…tumhare reference se dusray logon ko link kerein…
- A perfect AR scene! Awesome couple!
RM's confession scene - Out of the blue it was.. muski's reply is the highlight!!
Riddhima: Armaan…?? 12 BACHAY?? Humne market nahi kholni….ke aik ke saath, aik free….(making a cute
Armaan laughs out free
Armaan: arey aik ke saath aik free kyun….i believe in individual cost of product…to aik time per aik hi baby…
Riddhima: haan haann…(sarcastically) bachay to bass paida ker ke rakh dene hain na, aissay ghar ke konnay
main….unhain pallna posna to hai nahi na…
Armaan: (frowns) kia matlab…??
Riddhima: pehli baat to 12 bachay paida kerna, out of question hai….i mean, SOCHO bhi matt….aur secondly,
hypothetically speaking, agar aissa ho bhi…to unko barra tum keroge?? Tum to conveniently chalay jaoge
kaam per, aur main ghar per pagal ho jaungi…specially agar bachay tum per gaye to…
Armaan: (shifts his place, puts his head in Riddhima's lap, half-lying down, looking up) mujh per gaye ka kia
matlab…..mere bachay mere jese gi honge na….aur btw, yeh tum 12 bachon ke itne khilaaf kyun ho??
Riddhima: Armaaaann!! Tang matt kero na….(fingering his hair)…3 bachay, not more than that...that's final…!!
Armaan: acha baba….jese tum kaho…3 kids it is then….Armaan, Riddhima aur unke 3 bachay…wah wah, what
a happy family….(looking up at her)
Riddhima: wese Armaaan….tum yeh socho, ke agar mere 3 bachay ho gaye, to mein tumhain to bilkul time
nahi de paungi na..
Armaan sits up straight
Riddhima: kyunki 3 bachon ki dekh baal kerna…unhain khilana, nehlana, kapre pehanana, unka khyal rakhna…
iss sab main to mera sarra time nikal jayega na….
Armaan thinks over this and looks at her, his eyes wide
Armaan: Riddhima…tum mujhse 1 minute ke liye baat nahi kerti ho to mera haal burra ho jata hai…aur pura
din meri ankhon ke samne hote huay bhi agar tum mere pass na hui to mein kia karun ga??
Riddhima raises her eyebrows and purses her lips, nodding.
Armaan: (thinks for a while, then claps his hans together) Idea….
Armaan: tum pura din unka khyal rakhna…aur jab main ghar aya kerunga, to hum unhain Padma Auntie ke
pass bhej dia karainge…aur phir sirf tum aur main….kia kehti ho??
Riddhima: flop idea!! Humare apne bachay honge….koi karaye per nahi layen honge Armaan ke jab dil kia ghar
se bahar nikal dein…
Armaan: acha to phir kia karainge…?? (biting his nails, deep in thought)
Riddhima looks at him and smiles. He was such a kid. She takes his face in her hands and makes him look at
Armaan: Riddhima…(pouting like a baby)
Riddhima: Armaaaan….tum bilkul fikar matt kero…tumhain time dena, mera problem hai…aur phir chahay
humare kitne bhi bachay ho jayen, tum to mere sabse pehle aur sabse pyare baby ho na…?? You are my first
- Reading this whole scene i was like.. from where did the conversation start and where did it end? But then
is this not the cutest AR scene?? hmm??? :P
Riddhima topping the exam and then the scenes afterwards on the beach side... hayeee... fida!!
Revealing the truth of Armaan's past in front of Riddhma..Armaan's parents .. Emaan.... and AR bonding
growing more n more.. - I just like to read this n number of times though its quite sad and emotional without getting tired. lol
The perfect Valentines day for AR!
Armaan: Riddhima'you are the biggest part of me, I love you and there isn't a second I don't think about you..or about us'or how our kids would be
like.(he grins at this, and so does Riddhima) I have dreamt of my whole life with you'.and today, I just want to say..
With that, he went down on his knees, looking straight in Riddhima's eyes and then bowed his head for a second. Riddhima's eyes watered, she
couldn't imagine how anyone could do so much for her, how anyone could love her so unconditionally.
He sat on is knees, and one of his hands travelled to his pockets from where he took out a ring box. Riddhima gasped, as he opened the box which
had a beautiful, shiny emerald ring lying on it, surrounded with little diamonds.
Armaan: will you marry me, Riddhima'??
The tears that she had been holding back fell loose of her control and rolled down her cheeks as she pursed her lips together. This had to be one of
the most beautiful moments of her life. She just looked down at him, as he waited with bated breath.
Armaan: come on yaar….I wanna build a house with you, I wanna live every day of my life with you…I wanna have kids with you, I want to die when I
am 110 in your arms….i just..want to grow old with you man…come on…say yes…commeee onnn…
Riddhima controlled her tears and smiled a little at his nonsensical banter, and just nodded her head. Armaan's eyes lighted up…
Armaan: yes…?? (Riddhima nodded again…)….Yes??....(she nodded again)….YES??? (Riddhima nodded vigoruously nodded)
He said it this time, shocked, as he stood up, nodding his head too, as if asking a question. Riddhima laughed at his shocked expression and saying a
loud YES, threw her arms around him.
Armaan hugged her tightly, as Riddhima cried with happiness and he swirled her around. They both rejoiced in the beautiful moment, perhaps one of
the most memorable of their lives.
-- I truly adore this scene.
Armaan walked out of the room and then made his way to Riddhima's. If he was lucky, he would find her in there, and he would be able to clear out
all her questions and ambiguities. He knocked on the door once and walked inside the room, closing the door behind him.
Sure enough, Riddhima sat before the dressing table, clad in a green-colored saree, her hair dried yet her face still devoid of any makeup. She was
staring into the mirror, and as Armaan made an entry into the room, she turned to look at him. They both stared at each other quietly, for some
minutes, and then Riddhima got up steadily and made her way towards where he stood, a few feet away.
Standing before him, she just looked into his eyes once more and then put her arms around his neck and clung closer to him, embracing him as closely
as she could. Armaan was not surprised by this act; it was something he had wanted to do since a long time. Putting his arms around the small of her
back, he pulled her extremely close to himself and buried his face in her hair. She caressed the nape of his neck, as the slight tears he hadn't been
able to shed over the two whole days made their way down his cheeks.
After what seemed like the longest hug they had ever shared, Riddhima parted from him and wiping away the tears from his cheeks, smiled slightly
and simply said, "Thank you."
Armaan didn't need to ask her why or for what she was thanking him; he knew the answer very well himself. He just nodded very lightly, and then smiled back at her.
And then, for the first time ever in their relationship, Riddhima took an initiative and putting her hand around Armaan's neck, she pulled his head down, while standing on tip-toe herself and she kissed him. Very lightly at herself, a mere brush of the lips; and then she took his mouth with more fervor. While Armaan was taken aback in the beginning, he soon realized what was happening and then putting his arms to her waist, he pulled her closer to himself and kissed her back. What they both expressed with that one gesture was unexplainable; Riddhima thanked him from all her mighty heart for what he had done for her, she could never repay him back for it, while Armaan made her feel how damn important she was in his life, how truly he valued her. And they kissed for long, breaking off when the kiss turned passionate enough for both of them to be on the breaking point. It was Armaan who backed out first, knowing that if they continued, he wouldn't be able to stop himself. And as he stood looking at his beautiful
girlfriend turn different shades of red, Armaan smiled to himself and knew it was all worth it; every single thing he had done. They still stood pretty close to each other, close enough to hear each other's heart beats. Riddhima still stood there, blushing, her head bent down.
Armaan smiled again, as he waited for her to look up and when she didn't, he put a finger under her chin and lifted her face up. As she looked into his eyes uncertainly, he bent down and brushed his lips with hers again; a soft, sweet kiss. And while his lips still rested against her, he whispered, " I love you."
Riddhima smiled against his lips, and with no boundaries known to her or nothing stopping her from doing so, she kissed him back the same way as he had done and replied, " I love you too…"
- this is the cherry on the top of my list of favs :D.
The ending part was so very well taken forward.. that not even one scene has fell out of place. I just wish the creatives would have read this before going for a leap.
Strong, almost action packed, not nervous since we know that they are together but excited how will they get together. You made me almost sit upright for the whole read.
I liked so many things in this- Nikki.. you got her into a scene suddenly when she IS required and then gave her the space... and also a very Good role in getting AR together. I know you never thought about this but I felt her sudden appearance and disappearance was so apt.
Padma... strong support for the ones whom she believed in. Even her character never waver.. whether it is (not so)supporting shanky...or at the end making him realise whats the truth.
Shanky... shaky... A strong father.. but then goes weak when it comes to his children. His side is so well shown here.
Armaan... the strong.. nah.. the strongest...lover, son, and into all other roles.. he is the ONLY One to fi in that! :D
Riddhima.. wasn't she vulnerable for the start.. thats what she had and is now.
AA... they are there when they are actually needed. True Friends!!! :D
Riddhima joining back to work is so refreshing.. just got me back to those awesome hospital scenes. You really know well how to place the scenes.! And then BINGO.. as I told you reminded what happened to RM and then you gave them the required scene... AR-RM scene... that was so so so very well written that I could see it all through.
This is this!! This is my memoir of DMG!!
