@ Vandu: Loved ur detailed analysis as always. i am sure u know that already..well paathwadi is a famous maharashtrian dish..yummy..google it..if u can't find receipe i'll mail it to u..promise..its spicy and crunchy. too good..my fav..
i am glad that you found the point that he lives in that room without living his mark..it is symbolism that he is not settling in and not comfortable there. and it should be expected..a grown man used to living a casanova life at fast lane is now trapped in atown where there is no nightlife..no friends and excitement..and he has to stay there for long..probably he is trying to find ways to wriggle out of there and run back home again...hai na...and of course it is building up frustrations in him which come out as lashing out on servants etc...well, there is something in his past related to the decanter...nothing very earth shattering...
i hve been asked by many if the restlessness in dutta is due to just his saturation in his life style or is it deeper..is he as scarred a tudu in second chances..i ahve to say no..he is not scarred as Tudu...infact he is much more priviledged and thick skinned than tudu..infact they are poles apart in some ways..
Tudu felt and cared too much hence it was problem for him..he was an introvert and death of his parents and friend had scarred him..left impact on him..for him there was no one but naksh..and he had always been aware of his feelings for her in some subconcious level..his world started and ended on naksh..yet he hoped and prayed for her to be happy with someone...
Tillu on the other hand doesn't care for anyone much except for his sisters maybe..he can't forge that bond of belonging anywhere and its not due to any incidence, its just in his blood to be reckless and ruthless to get what he wants..probably because he was so pampered by his parents and sisters all his life...ziddi, ariyal..and amibtious..as i said winning was his drug and he was not one to play by rules..he was brute enough to hurt a small girl of 8 when he ws 17 that was proof enough of his brutish strength..
yes, his parents death was tragic for him....and so was witnessing his sisters weding getting apart...but he was then 17 almost an age when kids are grown up..mini adults..to add to it he had so many motherly sisters..and money..and every comfort around him..it doesn't take away pain but helps u adjust..even hsi sisters were all married and hence not excatly devasted by the accident as tudu was..
Tillu has never been in love..he doesn't believe in God and has a daredevil steak..see how he answered the woman abt smoking in hospital and how he was almost rude to shrug off the girl in train..he is not the gentleman type..but rather a tough cookie....but he was getting bored of his monotonous life and his life was catching upto him..afterall around 10 yrs of partying and studying and working and womanizing had to bore and trie him at some point..and thats what happen that day when he lost control in OT which freaked him out and he blindly agreed to do anything to break the mould..
but now he is here and he is bored and this girl challenged him..excitement but different one...he doesn't hate beautiful girls..he has no aversion to beauty infact he has been intimate with innumerous such girls like the nurse, or girl in train that he is bored as they have all cagulated as faceless characters or bed parteners over the time..
he scoffed when he said she is no beauty because no one would call nakkusha a beauty..at first look..but lets see if he changes his tune with time...physical attaraction is always an important part of falling in love..hai na..
Hope it answers all the questions about Dutta's character here...
if any more questions plz ask..
