JEEMAN- Love them to death!! SHREYA- Love her to death as well so JEEMAN + SHREYA= Death of ME! Simple as that!!! At times, I find the word 'LOVE' too small to describe my feelings when it comes to both JEEMAN and Shreya's singing and when we have combination of that, my vocabulary just ditches me!!! We have already seen this combination as the title track of this show is sung by Shreya and no wonder, it gives me goosebumps the minute I hear her voice and see JEEMAN on screen (Though sad version is even more killer)!!
As for this VM; the song itself- THODE BADMASH- was more than enough to lure me in! My favourite song of Shreya (Again, I use the word favourite for MOST of Shreya's songs) and now that I have heard it being depicted on JEEMAN, I am thinking, the song has found its REAL meaning today as if it was meant to be for them since forever and found its way to where it actually belonged! Strange how each and every line of this song suits so well with them as if it was designed for them!!!!
Just the first 8 seconds of the video connects to the theme of the song; just as the first line is sung, we see Mannu doing her "Nadaan" childish antics and Mannu faking injury scene nails the "Badmash" aspect! Their rakhi sequence hug implicitly describing the second line of the song "Haan magar yeh sach hai, ki meri jaan ho tum"! No matter what Mannu does, for Jeevika, she is her life and vice versa; Jeevika may enact strict role of a sister and mother but for Mannu, she is her life too! The scene of Jeevika kissing Mannu during the "Hum Kaise Hain Na" sequence re-asserts that notion that they are each other's reason for existence and are always looking out for each other!
Interlude weaves in beautiful flashbacks and scenes and then comes MY FAV moment of this VM which completely melts my heart; from 1:17-1:20 as the lines "Meri Aankhon Ka Intezaar Ho Tum" play in the background, captures a BEAUTIFUL scene of Jeevika with her awesome expressions and her eyes speaking volumes! Its as if her eyes are silently expressing same thoughts as that of the song!!!! I remember watching that scene and just being an awe of Jeevika with the way she looked at Mannu - EXPRESSIONS at their very best! Yet, the following scene is no less, its that iconic 'glass breaking' scene which I think we have discussed million of times but gives us new interpretation every time we revisit it!! How apt are those lines "Mera imaan, meri shaan, mera maan ho tum" as they are each other's trust, pride, and honour and we have seen unlimited examples that endorse this point!!! They place each other at the level where one doesn't feel ashamed to bend down and here Jeevika, despite being the older one, does just that!!! The moment at 1:33 syncs so well with the song as Mannu teasingly nudges Jeevika's shoulder; the timing just couldn't be any more perfect than this!!!!
