Awesome analysis as always, Poco, and right on target on every point.
I think the quote was from one of Lisa Kleypas' books. She writes some absolute gems.
One of the biggest questions going around right now is why and how Maddy will become a star. Copy-pasting something I wrote elsewhere, and I don't remember for sure if you suggested the same premise some time back or I'm misremembering.
Rather than Maddy proving a point, I really think it'll be far more magnificent emotionally if RK *wants* her to shine.
I want Maddy to become a star only under Rishabh's protective and loving aegis, which means *after* they both
fall in love.
That way, we'd have a track like 'Abhimaan' where the wife gets into her adoring husband's career at his insistence, and then sees the happy marriage she values going on the rocks for a soaring career that she doesn't actually care about.
Yes, it'd be longer getting to Maddy's stardom track that way, but it would have more depth. Like the gentle touch in the pre-series promos where Rishabh is moulding her.
Making a girl a heroine - even one-time and of a flop film - is no revenge. RK doesn't seem a poor planner to offer such a thing when he can get the same results without raising her on high.
But that he would want to offer the world to Maddy once he's in love with her
- that fits in with his intensity and his passion and doesn't contradict his sense. Also, I want to see them getting romantic soon.
Not talking about happily-ever-after at this point. I'm talking about them loving each other. For Rishabh to cherish Maddy and adore her, but still be vulnerable in his ego. For Maddy to love Rishabh but not know how to keep idiotic frivolous things from getting into and upsetting her happiness in marriage and love.
These two have adversaries and problems crawling out of the woodwork. That's unlikely to stop. Even not loving each other, they can't actually stand to see each other harmed.
How much more fantastically complicated will it get when they do love each other but get estranged emotionally?
Falling in love is unlikely to be the end for these two. It's just shifting their journey from a kachchi sadak to a pakki sadak.
Knowing you and the other person love each other and yet being foolishly convinced that that's not enough - that should make for some spectacular romance.
And tomorrow's precap was lovely, but unfair.
At least Maddy had given him two choices. Really hope the episode proves as good as it promises to be and TRPs keep rising. And once again, thanks for bringing every facet and nuance of the episode to light so beautifully.
