II.My random thoughts on the changing phases of Maan's character - a character that has been irrationally consistent.
Prior to meeting Geet, Maan was a bundle of complex emotions which he kept well hidden from the rest of the world. All he let Geet and the rest of world see of him was his indifference and arrogance. Geet changed it all. She basically turned an anti-social, highly egoistic, arrogant and grumpy man who had a very low level of tolerance for inefficiency, lies or betrayal into a humane, loving, caring, selfless and tolerant man who re-learnt to smile. Thanks to Geet, he learnt to live and not merely exist as he did before her entry in to his life. She did not have to go on a mission to change him but did so by just being herself. If one recalls, after he returns from HP, he settles all Dev's past debts and was prepared to welcome him back to Khurana House, willing to forgive and forget whatever it was that irked him about his wayward and gambling behavior. So Geet's magic started to work even before he even liked her, let alone, love her.
We have seen innumerable grand instances of Maan saving Geet's life. Geet's influence on Maan's life has been more subtle and continuous. He did not realize when he was changing but he did and the change was gradual. This is not to say he was completely transformed. The change brought with it its own share of side effects. It heightened the buried insecurities stemming from his mysterious past, turning him into an irrational and possessive man every time he was under threat of losing her. So whenever he thought he was losing Geet, he reverted to his original self. We saw that happen when Geet revealed her pregnancy and later her painful past. We saw that happen when she left him thinking that he was playing with her feeling sand supporting his brother. Every time this happened, he first turned his anger into himself, hurting and punishing himself before lashing out on the woman he loved.
His extreme love for the woman sometimes brought with it queer logic. When she says that she wants to quit her job, he equated it to her wanting to quit his life. If she kept things back from him, he presumed that it was because she was wrong although she may have done it to spare him pain. Surprisingly he did not apply this twisted logic on himself. He has kept several things from her but then if he keeps secrets, it is for her own good and not because he was guilty. Come to think of it, the whole misunderstanding track would not have happened had he confided in her about his intention to bail out Dev for a few hours for his Dadi's sake but then he did not see it that way. At the end of that track we saw Geet literally groveling to let him take her back. More recently, when he decided to postpone consummating his marriage till Geet was declared physically fit by her doctor, he decided to keep it from her for her 'own good'. Later when Geet came to know the truth, she was the one groveling again to be forgiven for misunderstanding him. Yes, he apologized for hiding the truth, but it came from his lips and not from his heart.
The tables were turned this time. Geet had to save Maan's life by seeking help from the one person she detested the most, his brother Dev. She had to plead with the man who wronged her, to donate blood to a brother who hated him. She did it for her man but could not work up the courage to reveal it to him although she never stopped feeling guilty for not being able to do so. As she feared, when he came to know the partial truth, he turned his anger into himself. So she had to tell him everything and she did say it all as she had done in the past. His immediate reaction was as irrational as it was in the past. He equated her secrecy with guilt and wrong doing. Here lies the disparity in his thinking. When he keeps things from it is for her own good but then when she does the same thing he cannot believe it could be for his own good and not because she was hiding her faults.
The irony of it all was that he
thought his hatred and anger for his brother was because of what that brother
did to the woman he loved but he ended up letting the fire of hatred and anger
grow so such proportions that it scorched the woman for whom he let it burn.
Looking at this differently, when Geet's life was in danger after the sauna incident, Maan chose her life over that of her baby, knowing how much she loved that baby. Similarly when Maan's life was in danger, she chose his life over her hatred for the man who was to save him, knowing how much he hated him. Both these incidents showed just how much both Maan and Geet valued the other's life but Maan had momentarily failed to see this when he lashed out at her.
The difference between his fury yesterday and those of earlier occasions was that in earlier cases his anger stemmed from his fear of losing her. In other words, his love for Geet made him an irrational man. Yesterday, though, his anger stemmed from his hatred for his brother. Unfortunately his hatred for Dev overrode his love for Geet. That is why Maan felt miserable when Geet made him see himself. His love for Geet had changed him for the better but he realized that his hatred for Dev has changed him for the worse.
