Hey Shaheen, I tried my best level for not quoting but I felt to share my thoughts in addition to your *flawless,absolutely awe and praiseworthy post as an opening* Aaj tune dikhadiya Shaaheen ka Adda aur maine ouski fida hogayi. With Mehr ki *phoolon ki baarish* aur Arohi ke taaliyan, I will start:
Why Arohi still feels betrayed and is not ready to forgive Arjun?
I care so much for you; you are also supposed to care equally. I never hurt you; you are also not supposed to hurt me. THIS IS HOW AROHI THINKS!
Justifying the way Arohi is thinking is agreeable but I will like to add that Arohi here is the young girl who has just come through her teens and growing to a lady, this is the time,love hits her for the betterment to change some of her perspectives. The way she is thinking is matched with her childlike innocence and her pure heart that 'I never harm someone, why do I get harm?'
Like one said nah,lovers are complement to each other, while the young girl is behaving like this, his beau knows that to win his belle, he needs to stay calm and here comes the sayings that someone made me learned:
'' Anyone can give up. Its the easiest thing in the world to do.
But to hold it together, when everything is falling apart, that's the true strength.''
I think this saying explains the melting of Arjun and also the first line talks about Arohi who will now step in soon to the second step. That self journey she had in the jungle did not stop there, she refused to accept she is the changed girl but when her beau is here, she will see it by herself,with time.
In love, the mind and the heart- logical and emotional feelings all are focused only on your object of love. It is an obsession when you think of nothing else but your loved one. This is main cause of pain after betrayal. Because you never could believe that your loved one could betray you. You had considered them to be far better and lovable than anybody else. How could Arjun do this to me? That question keeps hammering Arohi's mind and she does not get any answer. / We cannot seem to see Arohi's pain and sadness because they are all feelings inside her heart and mind.
Point to watch out here, Shaheen - is it an obsession? I think KMH2 and this love story is a love in innocence. There is not an obsession in both ways. I will continue to it, yes, Arjun was all hers and this fact audience knows has not changed but what has changed is perspective. The story started with the perspective of love in innocence where one was feeling guilty of betraying someone he holds more than his own life and continued where the one got betrayed because of others thoughts injected to her on the one who she trusts more than herself.
It was praiseworthy to see Arjun made the initial step but circumstances have turmulted to the extent that Arohi is covered in her own world of fake happiness, where she is ready to lay her life for the happiness of her family. The laugh spirit of a child was replaced to the turmult blurred eyes of the child who got the biggest shock in her life. She is traumatised and she is finding warmth in the love of her family because she thinks that they will never hurt her and that is creating more and more misunderstandings that has built into a wall of darkness, not letting her to see the real light that comes from her beau. The string of fate is playing among the lovers where Arjun who has always been the struggler know how to make his way and Arohi who is still in the shield has yet to find her way. Fate separated them because of misunderstanding solely from Arohi's side as she is intentionally being broken trust from her best friend - Gauri. Still to weigh the amount of pessimist flow, love always find its way to goodness, characters are coming and building to a gang that are pawns to break that built dark wall in Arohi. Today's confession to Shefali - A positive character is a layer of bricks fallen from the dark wall that Gauri made her believed. Twisted with more jhadkas from Arjun - It is a turning point to Arohi - she claimed with words of mouth and convincing herself 'She does not trust him anymore' but then she swallowed all the hard words of Arjun? She knew that their eye locks were like souls communication but now she is believing again on Arjun. As one said, negativities have quicker absorption impact than positive image. And good job KMH2, it is shown by all the inkaars of Arohi on Arjun's goodness and gulp the negativities.
Why do we have more sympathy for Arjun rather than for Arohi? Rightly so, our sympathy level for Arjun is higher because we've seen how he chucked his family for Arohi, how he is working really hard to get back to Arohi. But then we feel sad for Arjun but how about Arohi? Is that ok for her to forgive him just because he left his family and has a new job??/ I say no that is not enough. What has to be instilled back again in Arohi for her to forgive him is that sense of blinded trust. Im sure you would remember the blindfolded scenes!!This is the kind of trust that has to be built up in Arohi for her to be able to forgive him.
You are right here, most viewers empathised more in Arjun's characters because it is explained by outer elements. I was among who always looked Arohi's side until the episode that she said to Arjun, she does not know what he did to her. I was thinking too, what,was it a dialogue that should have been said? Then I think it is justified by the amount of trust she has on Gauri,her best friend, whom she has always covered and took care of,the impact of the evilish words of Gauri that made her broken like multi pieces of a glass. Even she assembled, even if one eye lock melted her but she is unaware the actual impact of Gauri's machiavel and that will be the real broken intentional trust. Still,as the show is short, I think it was high time to see again rocking Arohi. I know time mends it. I agree to you on the rising question that when the girl is in,does it mean Arjun is returning home even with a different job? However as I am going to look at it on a reel perspective, this was the way to show that this lover is kneeling selflessly in this love. This lover is crossing all the barriers to recover the smile of his dame. Bearing insult from the one he holds most and from the one who hate him to death, he is ready to go to any extent for the person not to have more tears in her eyes. He has found and understood the level of pain he brought to her and forgot the fact that he is in pain to but to see that sparkling care free smile of her. This is also the elevation quality of a hero and a lover that will withstand any storm that he has to face.
As in this love story, no one is really to blame but circumstances, I will side the poll about Arohi to give Arjun a second chance, after we have seen that when she is at home,she is living the numb life of Arjun that used to be. Oh yes, in love,lovers' swap the way of life and it is shown here how Arohi, despite being admist the jovial family, she is all alone,just like Arjun was. Arjun is gaining back the innocence that he long left away with the drousiness of Arohi's love. We have seen Arohi is in heart vs mind conflict in the claustophobic atmosphere she put herself in her house. Today was the first time she talked openly on her emotion and none other than Shefali. DJ restricted to voice her emotions out but Shefali who is the living audience of this story will continue to live and be for Arohi in the moment of torments. On the long drive scene, we saw how Arohi was again the free bird with Arjun and was back on her bachpana self and sweet chirpy self. I personally feel, on Arohi's side, she is on the recovery way to that trust she held to Arjun. She got that trust when she realised how he misunderstood Arjun and this happened again but with more 'zor ka jhadka.'
To sum up, the love of Arohi to Arjun started with infactuation and she got quickly attracted to Arjun. The phases that she has been afterwards are only answers to her own self, if this remains an infactuation, this will dissolve the way it came but if that infactuation slowly turned into love, even if she want to push it away, it will pull back and hold.
As for Arjun's side, it was a slower process, he fell in love to Arohi with the innocence and purity of her character. While Arohi chirped in innocence because of her strong attraction, Arjun slowly drives into it and drown to the bud in his heart that is watered by Arohi's fragrance and this love built strongly that he knows her life is more precious than his. It was love always in his side.
I bet this has to happen for one lover to hold the string when the other one defies the truth like what we have seen in all love stories
