Today for the first time I found something so illogical in the show... What the CV's called the "blast your past"...
Viraj told Jhanvi about his past life (in his suited manner)... Jhanvi asked him if they can bring Payal home, so that she gets a better life, and maybe will help her in recovery. Viraj was visibly upset with this request, so which clearly shows that he doesn't want his sister to be a part of his present and future. TILL HERE EVERYTHING WAS FINE.
Then he surrounded Jhanvi with her sarees, all of which had some fond memories. He put them on fire, and burnt her school and college certificates, and family photo album. Even this was fine, as he wanted to emotionally hurt and scare her, so that she never even brings up his past. This was more than enough.
WHAT MADE THE WHOLE SCENE ILLOGICAL/CONFUSING WERE THE DIALOGUES. IT WENT IN SOME DIFFERENT DIRECTION ONLY.
Viraj said that you want to bring up my past, because you want to change me. (Jhanvi never even meant that, she just wanted to heal his wounds from past, to offer some healing to his pain). He went on TO BURN HER PAST, SHOWING IT HAS NO IMPORTANCE IN HER PRESENT LIFE, BURNING HER PAST DOESN'T AFFECT HER PRESENT LIFE... So what I was finally able to get from the whole scene (Dialouge wise) is that according to Viraj "Past does not affect your present or future"... Then why was he upset when Jhanvi brought up his past. Why is he so protective/secretive about his past. He was conflicting himself.
Earlier though he had done extreme things to Jhanvi, but was justified from his POV, on that (not justified to ours). And every time it gave us an insight into his psyche. This scene had me totally confused, as what does Viraj thinks about Past.
If Viraj felt that past should not be brought up to affect the present (to restrict Jhanvi from talking about his past); a) he should have burnt his own past (na rahega baans na bajegi bansuri) b) He could have brought up something bad from her past which is troublesome and painful, to tell her how hurting past, should not cast a shadow on present c) He should have burnt her present things, that if you want to live in past, so you will now live in past... live that middle class life of a bachelor girl, or send her back to live like as in stone age etc... BUT WHAT HE DID WAS BURN HER GOOD EMOTIONALLY ENRICHED PAST, SAYING PAST DOESN'T AFFECT PRESENT AND FUTURE, SO SHE SHOULD NOT BRING UP HIS PAST. If past doesn't affect present and future according to Viraj, why is he so protective and secretive about it.
IF ANYONE UNDERSTOOD VIRAJ'S PSYCHE IN THIS SCENE, PLEASE HELP. (APART FROM HIS HURTING AND SCARING JHANVI SO THAT SHE DOESN'T TALK ABOUT HIS PAST).
