1) Navya's jeeju is well cast...again seems like a very natural, ordinary everyday kind of guy...even Renuka for that matter...liked his brief interaction with his 'saali sahiba'
2) Anant showing up outside Navya's building and calling her...lol...how cool and matter of factly
...however Soumya's acting was patchy in this scene...she got kinda shrill and went OTT with the expressions too...I liked that bit though when he's crossed half the road and reaches the divide and Navya helplessly tells him that fine she's coming down...and he has this satisfied smile on his face
3) The silent eye communication b/w the sisters as Renuka helps her with the excuse to go...in general Renuka's shrill mood swings get on my last nerve but she was good in this scene
4) The entire road sequence...although kinda dragged...especially in the latter half
...but the idea and symbolism of it was nice...He's been waiting for her to show up since forever...she finally shows up and he gestures for her to walk over to him and she tries...but can't reach across the heavy traffic...he sees her struggling and gives her a reassuring smile and gestures that he's walking over (natural expressions here)...Navya closing her eyes in fear in one bit seeing him struggling with the traffic too and when she opens them...lo and behold he's right next to her
...there's a moment here that I found cute...Anant is all happy and chill and Navya is in mega awkward mode again
...so she's looking at him, then glancing away and he gives her this look in b/w like, 'why are you being so awkward?'
...then finally holds out his hand for her...and then starts the whole sequence of taking her hand and trying to lead her across the road...lol...it's interesting that he first asked for her hand and once she gave it to him, soon enough he switched sides and went and took her other hand instead
...well yes cuz the traffic was on the other side so it was easier but after this also he switched hands on her a few times during the course of the whole road crossing...totally comfortable, totally at ease, in charge...while Navya's looking at him all moony eyed like "my herooo"
...the sequence stretched on too long but I did like the idea of it...used as a metaphor to represent the obstacles that will come their way in their journey together...Navya trying but not always managing to overcome those obstacles...Anant taking the initiative...protecting her, supporting her even if their hands get seperated in b/w once, he holds it again and finally both of them reaching their destination...
5) The AN car scene: Navya's smiles were sweet...she's all flattered and touched that he went to so much effort to get her
But Anant being oh so smug...lol..."tum zyada ziddi ho...agar promise rakh liya hota toh mujhe aana hi nahin padta"...and when she's telling that she genuinely couldn't come cuz of guests at home, he actually rolled his eyes
...I liked the bit later on when he goes, "zidd karke laaya hoon naa...toh waapis bhi chhod dunga...*pause* lekin jab kahogi tab"
Also it's like they both talk about everything but the elephant in the room...when she mentions that everyone will find it weird if they both show up together now, he's like, 'don't worry I didn't tell anyone I'm coming to get you'
...is Anant in denial or does he just not want to PROCESS what he's doing?
...then they're both laughing over the lies they told to get to see each other too
I want to see Ranbir bugging him more on this topic to get some answers out of him
Otherwise that creepo bhabhi is in detective mode and out for some answers of her own
