Originally posted by *dewdrop~pearl*Actually the first scene between Ram and Priya was a bit cleche, but the concept behind it was sweet...like how you end up telling your deepest secret to someone who is a total stranger, but couldnt have been anyone better than her , as it makes more sense to share such thoughts/feelings with someone who would understand it, than someone who would just end up feeling sorry for you (and I REALLY doubt if Neha would have been the right person to share something so deep )
And Priya isnt THAT innocent too , she was nicely eavesdropping and listening to some stranger's "secret" ...and she also told her dad that she overheard this guy's secret "accidentally" !
Actually dont you think Priya's dad's voice is a bit wierd and draggy ?!
Infact I really love this word "connection", actually this is one word which even I keep using, but lot of people tease me and call me "filmy" / "non-practical" . What is so "filmy" or "non-practical" about this word ?! Yesterday Priya was only talking about "connection", but today's epi even demonstrated that for those who were confused or not sure about what connection is all about. She was actually able to feel a connection with this complete stranger. She dint know who he was or anything about him, inspite of which she connected to him instantly! And I could really feel Priya's mood lightening up after her "eavesdropping" session, and the thought that she is not alone and that there is nothing "abnormal" about the way she felt.
You know Vasu, WORD about the Dil movie , infact that thought crossed my mind when I saw yesterday's precap itself ! I recollected the scene where Anupam Kher was wearing shorts and jogging lifting his knees upto his waist !
Regarding Sakshi, I feel more than pretty, she is really ELEGANT. There is a certain elegance in everything she does, the way she talks, the way she carries herself, etc., and I really admire elegant ladies (only if I could be like that !)
And Priya's mom's thought - that she can say anything "bitter" to her daughter, but if anyone else does that, she wont tolerate, is such a TYPICAL human nature...even my sis is like that - she thinks she can fight with me how much ever she wants, but if anyone else upsets me by fighting with me, she doesnt like it !
Hmm, so her mom thinks it wouldnt be possible for Priya to find someone who is AS rich as her ex-bf is it, wait until the BUSINESS TYCOON Ram Kapoor comes into the picture ! And lets also see HOW content Shruthi would remain with her 2 BHK flat !
Hey Aparna - I agree, that first scene was cliche but as you said it had a nice fallout. It's kind of like that incidental date thing except neither of them have even seen each other
I also don't know if Neha was the right person to spill this secret to
but supposedly she and Ram are old college buddies, so much so that he calls her 'darling' - maybe she's not as annoying with him? Funny, if she knew him that well, why did she set him up with a bimbo?
Priya's father is terribly miscast; he sounds like a completely wet blanket. He looks and feels ineffectual - which, to be fair, might be the point we are meant to see. But as a confidante for Priya, he is sadly lacking; now it seems she doesn't even have Shruti (oh, how I get a thrill every time I write that
) on her side as she seems very bitchy and catty. I'm looking forward to seeing Karthik, Priya's brother as he might be the friend she needs...at least as long as she and Ram don't get together!
I also love the word connection used in this manner - it is so much more effective that using words like soulmate or love or whatever. It's not just about love, as Priya said; it is not necessary for her to love someone but it is necessary for there to be this connection, this tug-and-pull...this feeling of apnapan. I don't at all think the word is filmy or non-practical. I think people can have connections with those they don't even have relationships with. Like you said, a simple moment of a similar emotion created a connection between these two strangers that may never be realised. Of course it will, since this is a show, but in real life, these two could just be strangers passing each other in the night, building a momentary connection based on a shared experience and gaining strength from that, only to move on in their own lives and never meet again. Certainly that is more powerful than any ordinary "love at first sight" type scenario!
Ah yes - Anupam Kher and Saeed Jaffrey in their "jogging clothes"
I really loved this film, and Anupam Kher was hilarious
You are spot on about Sakshi - she is so elegant
. It's...hard for me to explain, and I don't want to sound like a lovestruck fangirl (which I am
), but she has this grace, this femininity that no matter what she wears, how much or little make-up she applies...she stands out. She sparkles in every frame. As you say, she carries herself and her clothes so well that she always looks perfect for that part.
I did like Priya's mom more in this episode than the previous few - for exactly that reason. She at last showed some sense of love and pride towards Priya and fought for her against the world, in whatever small way. Many people I know are like her - I suppose in families we have this haq that we can say anything to our loved ones and (almost) get away with it, but no outside is allowed to say the same thing. It is a very natural aspect of humanity, which is why I am glad they made the mother character a little more three-dimensional. Whereas Ram's mother seems to be stuck in her evil-face rut so far.
