Jenny : Yup most probably tomorrow.
Cess and Lennie : totally enjoyed reading your discussions....couldnt
help putting forward my view also........we all know that had the DMG writers
used their brain cells, then AR wouldnt have been such doomed and
destroyed characters.But my view is based only on the characters and
the events that happened in the show ....not what the writers could
done. Blaming the writers or the characters is one and the same thing because its the writers who create the characters...........
When Armaan had returned from his hiatus, the one thing I didnt like was his anger
towards Riddhima that she had married another man.
He didnt bother knowing what exactly had happened and why Sid and Riddhima had to get married to each other.
understand that he was hurt that he had lost his love but then he was the one who had left her alone so that she could move on from him and not be burdened by
his illness....and when she did, he didnt like it. Talk about hypocrisy! He blamed Sid for being
mahaan and some more nonsense but what was doing when he left Riddhima?? And he blamed Riddhima too. That was just plain DUMB!
still later he did sort of try to amend his mistakes when he saw how upset Riddhima was when Sid had given her those divorce papers. He genuinely
tried to help them......to bring them together.We all know he wasnt faking
it........he really did try even though it hurt him.
And somehow SR started to settle in their life.
Shilpa came into Armaan's life like a whirlwind and we all saw that he
finally started concentrating on a woman other than Riddhima.He wasnt attracted
to her but he definitely was curious about her because she was so
different from Riddhima.
Even they fought a lot, we did see that he
had developed a soft corner for her probably because she distracted him
form his sadness....like the FE scene where he came across her crying
and offered his handkerchief, then when she almost suffocated in the lift and he helped her, when he was upset about something regarding Riddhima
and he cane across Shilpa imitating his boxing style in the recreation
room-that brought a smile to his face. Later he did become
attracted to her...like in JP's birthday party when he found her attractive in
red, that scene where he saw her dancing in the rain and admitted to himself that he had stared feeling something for her.
his so called friendship with Sid- They had a pretty sweet friendship but it all started going downhill when he started turning jealous of Sid...and I remember clearly
this jealousy started when Sid was made the disciplinary
He was jealous about little thing
Sid did.......and he made that very obvious to Riddhima. When he was the
one who brought SR together then he shouldnt have shown his jealousy and
pain to them.
Then he saw that his behavior was upsetting
Riddhima he decides to use Shilpa to make Riddhima think he had moved
on.......his intention to rectify the troubles he was causing in SR's life was fine but his method of using Shilpa was horribly wrong .
So you see Armaan's character assassination had started
with this portrayal of the twin sides of his personality....
Now the actual reason for DMG's downfall....madam
Whenever Sid or Armaan supported Shilpa or defended her, Riddhima didnt like it.If
she didn't like Shilpa, she wanted them to dislike her too.
never approved Shilpa's closeness with Armaan. Not liking is one thing
and jealousy is another thing. Riddhima was plain jealous that Armaan's attention was on someone else now......i know many dont
agree with this. Even I didnt at first .. in fact I remember justifying Riddhima a lot during those days...but after the tent episode I went
back and watched these scenes again and I had to admit she was
And she very much expressed that jealous to Armaan...just look at this scene.....
The jealous is evident even in her body language. The way she questions him about Shilpa, that look in her eyes.....why, why so much bitterness
and restlessness if she was so in love with her husband?
Another hint was when she made cold eyes at Armaan
when he performed salsa with Shilpa.........she kept expressing her
jealousy every now and then and that in turn made Armaan think that Riddhima still loved him.
And then he was sucked into the vortex of 'forever love' again!
was Sid's wife, his love, his whole world.....whatever expectations Sid had it was from her. Armaan was just a friend and later a rival.
Seeing what Armaan
did in the tent was cheap, disgusting but it wasnt unexpected.
But what was shocking was Riddhima's behavior......if she really loved Sid, she would have pushed Armaan away..but noooooooo she was too busy enjoying herself .
I had made a post on the tent episode the day it had aired and I will post it here now.
I know many are saying that she finally confessed her love to Sid only
he didnt hear it. But was that a confession?? First of all since her
re-marriage she has only been thinking about Armaan.On the HM she
suddenly decides that she wants to take her relationship with Sid to the
next level.Then when she hears Yuvi's words she thinks about
Armaan.Today,she came to the room which Sid had lovingly decorated.She
then "realises" that because he loves her so much,she should completely
surrender herself to him- What is in her mind exactly? What does she
want? Who does she want? How about surrendering yourself to Sid because
you want to Riddhima?
Then when she goes and hugs that person
behind her,did you people see how she confessed.....eyes closed
tight,words coming out in a rush..... God! That isnt a love
confession....it looked so forced. Imagine if you fail in a exam....you
are scared to tell your parents about it but since you dont want to
prolong that moment of truth ,you blurt it all out in a rush.I am sorry
but Riddhima's so called love confession seemed exactly like that.
coming to the main part. She assumed it was Sid because she was
supposed to meet him there. But her body knew it was Armaan. Have any of
you seen her react to Sid like that?...............No. I am not saying
SR havent had passionate moments but Ridhima has never completely let go
The Armaan speaks and she opens her eyes shocked. Well
what happened then? She could have walked away then....she could have
told him to leave that place since Sid was coming to meet her.
No instead she ALLOWS Armaan to pull her closer. Armaan might have bringing up their old memories but he wasnt forcing her at all.Armaan was holding her in his arms not clutching her.She could have easily pushed him away ....but no.She allowed him to hold her, touch her and kiss her.
Had that bracelet not been on her wrist,she would have gone all the
way.We all know this,it is so obvious..............she needed a bloody
bracelet to remember Sid.....not her heart.
What is sick is that AR
had their lusty moment right in the place which Sid had so painstakingly
and lovingly built for Riddhima and himself.God how sick is that?
Sick, sick, sick!
Last scene : Only to rid herself of her guilt,she goes and demands Sid
to hold her....tears opens his shirt so that he would make love to her
and she could be free of her guilt.
I am so happy SR havent not consummated yet....................Sid doesnt need that sort of tarnishing.
yes what Armaan did was beyond sick. He was the worst friend that Sid could ever have but for me Riddhima crossed his
cheapness. Sid always gave her a choice .....she always had a choice. She didnt love Sid....fine. No problem. But she could have least respected his love for her by stopping herself and
Armaan.....if she was in love with Armaan she should have confessed to Sid honestly .
He would have let her go without a complaint becasue her happiness was the most
imp thing to him.But she didnt...Like Cess said, she simply hung between both the men like a
coward and let them make the decisions for her.......she hid herself in
Shilpa's house and in the end Sid had no choice but to divorce her so
that it looked like Sid left her on his own and she wasnt the one who
asked for the divorce.
Had the situation been reversed....if it had been Tamanna seducing Sid, would Sid do the same thing as Riddhima...never. Would Riddhima be as forgiving as her husband was to her...never.
Armaan had stopped being Sid's friend the day he had started becoming jealous
of Sid.He was unworthy of the love and respect Sid showered on him. And when it came to Riddhima, we all know that Sid and Armaan would always
stand opposite each other......... never together.
So anytime if I have to chose a person
who I think can still revive himself it will be Armaan (even though really he is beyond repair).............Armaan wanted Riddhima but she wanted the
best of both worlds(Sid and Armaan).
OMG! How did this post turn into an essay??
