In the world of VM this 'fusion' of two actors in two shows to make true a dream, or rather a glimpse of that dream is very new concept for me. I have seen a few attempts and although I can not fault them in technical excellence they do not all 'mesh' well together.
As you said it is about an overall feeling, a story. As you know I love your vms and I have to say I loved this one too. Your vms tend to have so many layers, seeking quality over quantity. Short and sweet but a sweetness that suffuses the soul rather than temporary high of 'unrefined' sugar!
I loved how your story is not just a 'promo' for a new show but has a past, a history leaving us wanting more, that tantalizing happy ending just mere breaths away.
Your exceptional choice of opening scenes. That symmetry of the b/w of happy times 'BEFORE' they met. That youthful exuberance, a hint of the symmetry of their souls. Wonderful.
I loved that burst into the 'present' that 'koi ho' that effect change at 0:12 timed to that 'skip' in the beat, nicely flowing into that 'yaad' for 'yaadein mein' I loved that written words over the scenes, for artistic value and helping us to understand your segueing into the 'past' memory WHICH I read as that 'past' when they were 'happy' as friends. Loved it
Then those scenes of the 'sorrow' of present, that bittersweetness of love that though better than friendship still stings all the more for it.
I loved how 'aaina bani yeh annkhen teri' the symmetry of those tears upon the brink of the abyss of their despair, which you flowed into symmetrical scenes of haya, shyness for Sanaya and then Karan. "Dheemi si" Very nicely done!.
That 'slight scent upon the air catapulting him back to that memory of their happy past! Excellent.
However my most favourite scene, and I am sure everyone else's too, is that at 0:40, just technically superb BUT heartwarming too. Very well done!
That 'jhoko ne jo' timed to perfection!
Again you showed me that you take every detail into consideration. That effect change at 0:48, synchronizing with the change of the flow of the song, that emphasis of 'churai' BUT also an echo of that beginning scene of Sanaya at the window, that feel of a ghost tear, that wind across her cheek, here the wind, as means to a 'moment' of quiet yet profound contemplation! wonderful!
That memory of their 'union' those iconic shots of a historical day, the bride and groom, the giving of each hands into a combined destiny, that union of mind, soul and body. True the blurring at0:56 hides the 'truth' of the identity of Mohit BUT for me it adds a certain 'dignity' to the kiss, so that we 'feel' it more than 'witness it' I loved it!
That jolt back to...it should be Sanaya BUT it is Karan, hinting that they are both lost in the SAME thoughts. Very beautifully done. Then that added layer of voice over of Sanaya elegant and graceful (and very much missed) voice, and a scene to match, just exceptional!
Then the reunion of the PRESENT, that moment of first glance AGAIN, the souls that are destined to be together no matter how much the hearts resist; pulling at my heart to join the 'mess'!
'Manzil humein bulane lagi' just wrenched my heart but timed wonderfully to that 'upbeat' introduction of a stringed melody into the song. So that crossroads of doom of despair into the possibility of the happy ever after of tomorrow. It seems as the song was made for YOUR vm and not the other way around. The way you timed that juncture at the moment the song begins to 'kick' in suffused the viewer with a feeling of hope! It was very excellently done!
Then those 'combined' thoughts of their past, from his mind to his sight of her in their past TO her sight of him in their past back to her! Just beautifully done!
Then that all embracing of destiny' Kash aise, Manzil Lagale Humko Gale!
Wonderfully done Ishita. You truly are gifted. Love Sabah
