Beautiful post.. and beautiful comments made.
This was my first episode watching Veera.To say that I loved it would be an understatement.. It was touching and at the same time heart wrenching..
When I finally understood the undercurrent of what was happening with the elders and the innocence of the child, I was touched and awed at the way this has been directed.
A happy day changing to shock and horror for the loving wife.. Her anguish at her husband and his betrayal on one side and then the final declaration of how she feels.. Was amazing..
On the other hand, one cannot but feel for that woman who had no choice but to leave her daughter to the man who fathered her. Her last minute plea.. Her sob when she first realized that she has come inbetween a man and his wife..How can one but not feel sorry for her?
A husband, who seems to love his wife.. I do not doubt that even though this was my first episode. The anguish I saw in his wife's face mirrored in his when she declared taht her relationship with him is dead.. He is paying for his mistake with something that is more precious to him than anything else.
In the midst of all this, the one thing that was most beautiful was the innocence of the child. His love for his unborn sister.. The barter system of teh children... His price for the Rakhi.. the last grasp and tthen letting the collection of bottle caps go. The happiness that the child showed was beautiful. In this world of betrayal, anguish, sorry comes the happiness as pure as the boy's innocence. He was amazing..
The smile as he plays with the baby while we are reminded of the tragedy that just happened
Hats off to the director and the screenplay writer and the actors.. I am speechless at this mix of human emotions and the innocence..
I will be watching Veera for that .. I am touched
