Just read a few of the posts and replies on yesterday's epi and all are such valid points... opposing yet both povs are valid.
Made me think what are my expectations of this story n characters?
Me i am watching it cause the characters (read Sahir) is so multi dimensional. .. he keeps a viewer on his or her toes.
Arzoo is a character i usually understand n always respect.
Zaki is lovable n has a good heart but needs to grow up.
Now Sahir's love for Arzoo and vice-versa...
1. I feel that Sahir is still not selflessly in love with her where a person will place his love interest above all else. He is a man still ruled by his ego... reason why he thinks of his idiotic wada more than Arzoo or his own family. He is madly attracted to her ... physically yes... but also to her aura of innocence and integrity - both of which are under the radar right now. Rehman made it worse by telling Sahir that Zaki n Arzoo are romancing.
maybe being all alone in an emotional sense has done that to him.
and I don't see him being free of this malaise until he is free of Zeenat's extremely negative shadow. And for that he will have to fulfil this promise (redviolet rightly mentioned in her reply to Jyoti's post - Sahir must be extremely insecure to allow the words of a woman like Zeenat to have this hold on him.)
he is also a possessive man... evident in the way he gets riled up every time zaki n Arzoo topic comes up... though he has no right to feel this way.
But at the same for me this is what makes Sahir interesting. I would have lost interest if he was the perfect man... son... lover... brother n boss. Dharampurush look good in godly epics. In my daily soap i love the angst filled, conflicted soul... masochist much me??
2. Arzoo - i don't think she is also that deeply in love... no let me rephrase that. She is truly in love but doesn't realise the extent to which this love can overwhelm her. She for one is not letting the emotion have an upper hand.. She is still a very practical soul... walking away from the umbrella and his proposal. .. knowing that the road ahead is unfamiliar, dangerous and not something she can or wants to get into. She is willing to love truly n deeply... from a distance... but is yet to realise that love is a messy affair.
you cannot feel or evoke that emotion and then stand on the sidelines and wait and watch.
But now that she knows Sahir's feelings for her too (no reason for her to think of them as fake... and for all his Machiavellian tendencies I don't think his feelings are fake... like her, even he doesn't realise the depths of his feelings n most probably will realise it too late)... i think over the next few episodes, Arzoo will also in a way allow herself the freedom to feel and love, without her guards being up. This will be aided by Sahir being at his best behaviour. ..
But this new well behaved Sahir could also mean that she misses an opportunity to know the real Sahir. Not that he was allowing her much lee way there. But yes that scene just highlights his loneliness - he is always behaving with a mask of control in front of others. Arzoo was the exception...
if he was not so damaged he would have been a pleasant man... but now until he truly heals he may have to continue with the pretense of control and calm.
At the same time I don't think he will be all calm and collected in front of her for long... the next outburst is just a few weeks away :)
All is fair in love n war.. . Definitely so for Sahir
