ok i either you would laugh off.. or would probably think wat my mother does.. am a man in a woman's body
so I saw it.. hmm and the first reaction I had was poor viren is probably thinking me having cancer would have been an easier cop out man.. coz Cancer se darr nahi lagta (esp ehm wala tepid cancer) emosonal atyaachar se lagta hain...
DEAR GODDD.. give the guy a freaking TIME OUT when he asks for it.. how hard is it.. ok first things first his shock, disbelief denial was etched out well .. and the arguments given through Viren on a pro-life perspective are also believable.. esp the you are stripping off an innocent life that cant even save itself.. m sure pro-life ideologies base on it..
Jeevika's turmoil and pain would have connected to me if she had more believable lines than main uska diya bujhne etc.. or manu ke life ke panne khatam ho rahe.. how theatrical.. and if she weren't always crying for everything.. tht punch was missing as much as I love KD.. yup in all honesty her desperation filtered through..
if the guy cldnt help some time alone.. he was told nahhh u cant have it.. sis jr comes for session 2.. plz keep my sis happy yadaa wadaa.. first of all i cant overlook that this woman hit hypoglycemic coma hrs bak.. n prob shld be in a ICU needled up .. oh in reality.. just get her on a life support.. buy few more days and get those placental or induced pleuripotent stem cells will ya.. wat nonsense.. ok control..
so moving on.. the jiju saali scene was nice stand alone but i couldnt help thinking at it from Viren's perspective coz u know 1 in a million epi is about someone else's pov but the behnas .. here this guy is fighting a conundrum and isnt even allowed 2 mins to mourn the loss of something precious to him.. or for that matter.. his wife coming to the whole decision mentally by herself.. when he said no matter how much love I give her.. its not the same.. there was hurt there on some levels.. it was a rude shock for him to hear her say she wants to abort coz he had no clue she was even on that page.. for him its wow.. is this really to the extent she could go.. knowing something and seeing it are 2 different aspects.. and it was a bitter reality for him..
i loved the camerawork today.. esp of viren on the couch.. where he reminisces the promise he made to manvi yet again.. and what cost it comes at.. killing his own little desire.. and this isnt the first time.. and may not be the last.. he is stuck between a rock and a hard place i guess for the rest of his life..
the mandir scene .. hmm i would have rather liked a sit by the seashore lookin at the horizon and contemplate scenario.. coz somewhere he is ALONE.. and No one can share his grief.. somewhere a part of him died.. he is the quintessential exemplary son, sibling, brother, husband family guy.. but i would have loved to see an individual space where he is just HIM.. where he cld mourn this loss by himself coz no one else would probably share it.. (apart from a swamini on some levels i guess)
those people saying they can always conceive again .. what the big grief.. well its not the same NOW.. coz more than the abortion.. its the thought that unnerved him.. to see to what extent Jeevika can go.. in her single point focus.. and that would not change.. to the extent that even if they had babies.. those babies could still have the same destiny or priority in her life..
there was a rude shock on a lot of levels for viren.. and tomorrow he may agree.. but somewhere a part of his expectations as a husband did DIE.. much before the fate of his dreams.. or his child..
P.S.. I just finished watching what I think is the best show I have seen in recent times and am/ was so invested in the poignant pain of the protagonists.. the journey.. that EHMs punch you to make you cry doesnt do it for me.. on some levels i see it as trying too hard with a situation but then thats me.. i dont care if no one else shares my sensibility.. lolll
Tacker shone.. but that's expected.. I have maintained he is cut above in his acting prowess when it comes to his peers in this show at least.. KD has been impressive in her growth.. and pushing the envelope.. but the last week.. and i think its overexposure if you will... her lines and perpetual maudlin state dont find that impact anymore.. this was a good epi.. coz of the poignance shown esp wrt to Viren.. i love it how he shuts himself.. and deals with it privately.. coz m a fierce individualist myself.. so I totally relate to the timeouts ..
