Oh Ayesha! I'd forgotten what her name was...LOL yeah I'd also largely dismissed her as a bimbo but I loved her scene with Priya today...especially the way she asked her if she was tired of the arranged marriage circus...and her reservations about Nuts were bang on! LOL...Priya is too much of a hopeless naive romantic in some ways...I always find it amusing when she launches into these "love conquers all...opposites attract" kinda fundas of hers
...cuz otherwise she is so sharp, so sensible. I think that's probably why it amuses rather than annoys me too. Since Priya is generally such a pragmatic and sensible character, her one whimsical trait endears her to me rather than make me angry. If she were the kind of head-always-in-the-clouds, completely clueless character, then it would probably irritate me more As it is, her whimsy makes me smile. Even I, the most cynical person you will ever meet, have a romantic streak
The car scene in the end was fabbb...I just loved how it was conceived...just gonna copy/paste what I said to Mash about this:
LOL it was suchhh a sweetly conceived scene though...I mean he came for her...in his big car and all
...leaving all those dumb kids standing around wondering why THE Ram Kapoor came for Priya
...and their interaction when he's trying to get the driver to position the car directly in front of her...but she keeps moving
...and he's so frustrated that the first thing he says to her..."aap do minute ek jagah par tik kar khadi nahin reh sakti?" I liked the car scene too - the way she kept edging forward and Ram had to keep up with her I pretty much ignored those random kids and their weirdly inappropriate and sarky comments but the whole RP scene was very well done. Particularly Ram's facial expressions of disgust and OCDness in letting the rain through
.Priya got back in full...and the last zinger..."aur PATLE" Oooh burn I loved how Ram took on this "not again!" expression but couldn't help but look down at himself when she said it Truth is, I don't think Priya would actually care about a man's weight being a factor but the fact that it so obviously annoys Ram makes it all the more amusing for her
And awww at the end..."waise baat toh sahi hi hai"...Aww Ram *pulls his cheeks*..."par nature mein problem hai is ladki ke" See this is what I love about these two - yes their relationship started on a misunderstanding and yes there is the "typical" boy hates girl type scenario going on...but when she says something of sense, he has no trouble accepting it, or apologising for his misconceptions, or admitting a mistake. There is no unnecessary tug of egos blinding them to each other's good qualities, just as they are not in the dark about each other's bad qualities.
I think it's been ages since Kekta has actually thought to put in CONVERSATION chemistry b/w her leads on screen...Hallelujah
...the story has that M&B-ish touch to it obviously but a CLASSY version and not the cheapdi versions playing in all "youth" shows True - the lowly teacher and the rich tycoon, so Mills & Boon-ish. It could almost be called something like The Ruthless Tycoon and the Teacher Who Tamed Him, or something but in conception and execution this is more "literary" a romance
Anyways getting back to the epi...seems like Ram's mother has already set into motion the events which will force her to zero in on Priya last minute as Ram's future wife...she is in for a biggg surprise cuz she probably thinks having seen Priya that day that she's some quiet bechari types crying in a corner...LMAO oh are you in for a ruuude awakening or what, Stepmom ji :P :P haha I totally feel that between Vikram and Niharika, this is how Priya will become Mrs Kapoor - Niharika will probably only want to use her as a decoy, but Vikram will have a Eureka! moment and will somehow convince her (and more importantly, Ram) that the best (only) way to speed up Nuts-Karthik's marriage is to marry Priya off to Ram for real. A marriage of convenience - another Mills & Boon trope, but I am starting to believe it can be pulled off in an elegant manner
The week has started off on a great note...looking forward to more interesting epis!
