I agree with u. A beautiful finale episode. So well emoted. that letter tore at my heart also. I too had tears in my eyes. I actually felt sad for two reasons.
First was that ARM was such a good-hearted man, but did not want to show that side of his to the world. He preferred to hide the soft side of his nature behind the tough exterior.
Another reason why I felt sad was when I considered what a waste their lives had been because they let their egos take precedence over their feelings. The saying 'time and tide wait for no man' is most befitting here. Both ARM and NKK spent practically all their lives attacking and counter-attacking each other, and in their blame-game they drifted away not only from their original characters/personalities but even from their loved ones Had they given less importance to avenging each other and more to their family life maybe things would have been different.
All said and done they were not evil characters but simply had fallen victim to circumstances. ARM's letter in the finale episode was so moving. It showed the true but hidden good side of his character. And when Kabir called for the Nawab Mills to be closed for 2 days as a mark of respect to the original owner that showed the beginning of the thaw. In fact the thaw could be said to have started when he went for the funeral meeting. His awkwardness there spoke volumes.
In the last two episodes both the characters/actors stole the show. Hats off to all of them. I think this show deserves a standing ovation.
One final word...Shows like Kismat are a rarity on Indian TV...wish more production houses would come forth with such shows and also wish more channels and the viewers would encourage the production houses to make such shows.
Adios amigos...although life will go on for all of us after today, yet for me it will not be the same for sometime to come...I am sure will be looking for a similar good show for along time to come. So till then will watch some crap on TV as that is my major source of entertainment...
