Diya, UR, Hope,
Thanks for a balanced and positive thread. I see your stop watches marking everyones lap times in the episode were conspicuously absent!
Missing T! I am sure she would have had a lot to say about the overt Guns N Roses symbolisms. I want to post a song link here, that to me, sums it up about Shantanu... A scorching cover of the Bond flick title track by Axl Rose... Live and let Die! But dont know how to on this damn iPad. Will edit on my laptop.
This, ladies, I think will be Paros track. Logically, it should be so. She has to realize that everything is not what it seems. She is not as quick to action as Rudra is, making it quite logical that Shantanu should continue on at the haveli while she works on her suspicions and the growing list of clues. I really like that although everyone, including Rudra, is impressed with Shantanus bravery, she still found it odd to have him standing in her room. If Rudra were to suspect anything he would not leave Paro with Shantanu. So the track has to unfold with Rudra in a blind spot.
On the other hand, Shantanu seems to have found the one thing that can throw the wool temporarily over Rudras eyes... Physically actually taking a bullet, and actually doing good!
A high price to pay to win his trust. Can Shantanu continue to afford it or is his budget going to run short?
As with the best laid plans of mice and men, the resistance comes from unexpected quarters. Sunehri is not a pushover. And neither, he will find, will Paro be either.
Another surprise on the upside would be Shatabdi in her inimitable way, being of some help to
Paro, in her English knowledge perhaps, or some other way that can floor the viewers. The wow, who knew that factor could certainly make for some good moments.
Did anyone spot the Body double for Sanaya as she picked up the bullet! The bullet in her hands closeups! Only it was not her hand. This is a perfect example of how post prod gets afterthoughts in shots and then has to make do. They have done that over and over again with Ashish, closeups being
alternated with long shots of a body double! Why do that! When people are shooting together, take all possible angles and work with that! They have even shown a back shot of the BD when Ashishs dialogue was still being spoken, mid sentence! How stupid is that? It was the earring gifting scene.
Even though Paro was finally letting her fear out, Rudra seemed a tad distracted even as he held her close. That preternatural instinct, staring at the first tangible evidence of the killer, had him giving her a loving response, but with that note of distraction.
Finally, Shantanus buttons are being pushed with Rudra and Paros love. As I predicted, everytime he sees them he will remember the price at which that togetherness came, and he will burn.
Sona, Lovely post... I totally agree about it going to be more of Paro's track... As, if Paro tells Rudra about her doubts on Shantanu his trust on him will break in an instant... So, may be Paro will decide to keep an eye on Shantanu, trying to figure out what he is upto... The day Paro gets even a hint that he is really the Bad guy... He will immediately be kicked out of the house..
Even though Shantanu shot himself to save himself from being caught... It helped him in another way too... Looks like, that one shot gained him Rudra's trust... For how long will that stay.. Had to see... Between, I just remembered... Didn't Mr.Singh suspend Rudra form duty and ask him to talk to psychiatrist?? And even after that Rudra is going to work every day. Me confused.. What was the purpose of that scene??
@Bold, that is one awesome idea... It would be awesome to watch Shatabdi helping Paro in some way...
About BD's... Nothing much to say there... Even though I don't like having them .. I realized that they come as part and parcel of Indian teles.. Unfortunately, we can do nothing about them..... You have a sharp eye for catching the hand...
Ya, Rudra did seem little distracted... May be he was just concerned. And also confused as he didn't know what to say to ease her...
