Nice topic. And I completely agree. What worked for SaJan was definitely the fact that they understood each other better than anyone else and trusted each other blindly.
If you see, Sam was always surrounded by people. He was THE most happening guy of the college, everyone wanted to hang out with him because he was so popular. Sadly, no one wanted to befriend him for who he was. He craved for true friendship which Gunjan offered him. He trusted her enough to tell her how lonely he felt without his parents, without true friends. How he was always insecure that these fair-weathered friends would ditch him when he would need them the most (its a different thing that Nupur was the one who heard all this, but thats besides the point). Though, his life was perfect but Gunjan was like a breath of fresh air for him, so different from any other girl he'd met. He wasn't after him, she was there for him! That's what made her so special in his life: that she was willing to befriend the 'real' Samrat and not the hot dude of college 'Sam'. Hence, he couldn't help but trust her. At the time of the talent parade when she didn't show up, he trusted her enough to know that she wouldn't let him down, she was probably just scared. Then when Sheena accused Gunjan of pushing her in the pool, Sam at once, sided with Gunjan. He trusted her more than he trusted his own gf, the girl he supposedly loved. Slowly and slowly, his liking for Gunjan deepened. His attraction turned into affection and his admiration into adoration and he fell in love with her and continued to love her unconditionally, even when she blamed him for her sister's death.
As far as Gunjan is concerned, be it as Bhavesh or as Sam, she'd always been comfortable around Samrat. When people had teased her in her first few days at college, just looking at Sam's (Bhavesh's) face made her smile and forget the teasing. Neele aasman ke tale, as long as he was with her, she didn't care. Thats why she was so hurt when she realised that her guardian angel in the college didn't really exist. Then at the Talent parade, no one except Sam could've made her gather the courage to sing in front of the audience. She trusted him when he assured her that she has it in her to win the hearts of millions with her voice! It was because she'd trusted him so blindly that she could not bear that he'd lied to her. Once again, she was heartbroken but Sam, like a true friend did not leave her side. Even when she wasn't speaking to him, he made sure that he lent his silent support to her, as her secret friend. Samrat knew that Gunjan would want someone to talk to since her sister wasn't around and he was also aware that he couldn't be that person. So then with whom would Gunjan share her feelings? Enter little Sam. Gunjan trusted little Sam just like she'd once trusted Sam. And slowly and slowly, through his understanding and supportive nature, Sam won Gunjan's trust back. And this time, she gave him her heart too. And even when he didn't reciprocate her love, to him it was only friendship, she still stood by him. She was hurt and pained but she made sure that Sam always smiled. She did all she could for him and his gf, as much as it hurt her. And ultimately, with her trust, her faith in him and her caring nature, she made him fall in love with her too! She did get bitter towards him after Nupur's death but years later, when she met him again, she felt her old feelings rekindle and romance blossomed again. It was Sam's understanding and respect for Gunjan's feelings because of which, she couldn't stay upset with him for long.
Hence, these two made-for-each-other people were just destined to be together and they lived happily ever after...
Ok, sorry for the essay but once I started I just couldn't stop. Hope I didn't bore you guys!
Nice post once again, TM!
