Okay so I guess I shouldn't be posting this here and anyway I was supposed to be offline but I just can't resist...
if I had my way, the AN story would've gone something like this after Abhi returned:
Remember the part where she asked him to come to her house to repair the bulb? I rather imagined that they would've had some serious issues with trusting each other again and also getting back into their comfort zone...as in, reading each other wrong or just wandering away into nowhere in conversation...and maybe they'd have dinner together at her place, and just sit there in silence for the other to say something, to make things clear about where they stood then. 'Cause after all they went through, I didn't expect any of them to just jump into the other's arms and hold on till eternity. That would be unlike AN. Instead, they'd have taken it slow...a bit more of the awkwardness of their situation, and also learning to believe in the other once more and just to take it easy. Maybe a few strange conversations where they go on about nothing or one speaks and the other just listens, and then they wonder later about how they didn't argue at all...they wonder how they became so agreeable all of a sudden. They'd crave for that light-heartedness with which they could take each other for granted before, something was wasn't present between them anymore. Then perhaps a few dinner dates, where they loosen up and say stupid things at the wrong times which help lighten up the situation...a few emotional moments in the car (as we both know, cars are auspicious for AN
) and just that little one-armed squeeze to let them know that they're there. This time, perhaps forever. A little bit more time and we move into the hugs, the kisses, and they just relax around each other, get back into the comfort zone and start disagreeing again. And when AN argue, you know they're back to normal.
Then, as they become more and more comfortable, they ask the uncomfortable questions and cringe about the answers they get or might get...but they accept it simply because its part of reality. Their reality. Something they've both had to experience, and they know nothing can possibly be worse. Obviously, after what happened, you'd expect them to be a bit more possessive about each other, but that's only normal. Take it even further and they go back to being who they were, and how they were. Just a little more sensitive, a little less taking each other for granted, and a stronger promise of togetherness.
I was hoping they'd show something like this, in a span of say about 2 months...and then Abhi contemplates asking her if she would marry him...he's apprehensive, wonders if she needs more time, but he, being him, blurts it out in an intimate moment and to his relief and joy, she says yes. They don't make plans like before, but decide to go with the flow...tell the friends, let the news sink in, the wry comments buried and the bad memories thrown into the dustbins.
But somehow, I didn't want to see a wedding actually take place. Don't ask me why. I just don't know. And even if they did show the marriage rites, I certainly didn't want any kids in the picture.
I don't like kids...and definitely not with AN. In FFs, its easy to read it and accept it. But in DMG, I'd have had real trouble digesting that
Strange me, but yes. I seriously don't like kids
Yeah so they're cute and all but that's it. I don't like all the cooing, and the pinching cheeks and going gaga over the kids...let them be!
