How beautifully heartfelt those words are,the teenager shravan was is still stuck there waiting there to be rescued and only from her.

Pain is the one that binds Shravan to Suman...Suman to Shravan..the heart beats and stops at that affection..they can sense the affection..the thread and the bond they hold is greater in ascendancy with their soul.

Haq what a word it is too much to ask for to less to give and still too much of impact.Both of them are a road where they don't know how to get through it but all that matters is the other one and their happiness.

The promo has taken the cake and has to be one of the best made ones I have seen in recent past.

I am so excited to know how shravan the lawyer will come in play and do the work his way and end up making both sides happy and with least of damage.

How will they get together and how will she stop him Embarrassed

You write just so good I wait for it lady

Heart



Aww, Ansah! Thanks. Hug

Beautiful wordsClap...the thread and the bond they hold...the pain they feel when the other one hurts...Heart

Haq- Pyar koi haq se nahi kiya jaat...there can never be a haq in love...because love gives all the haq! 

Me too...waiting to see how our Super Lawyer keeps both the sides happy. LOL...and for that Thank U scene that is to follow.Wink

Lovely promo! 
i have always had this issue that there was too much visual difference between young sumo and grown up sumo. not in face only, but in style , in body language in stature, in gait in more ways than one...

today for the first time, i saw a continuity between the two, it seemed for the first time that yes that girl could have grown up into this young woman...

i am glad they managed to attain that, if only for my own peace of mind..

What you wrote is so very true. Clap
They managed to give us that beautiful continuity..it was also a recap of sorts...a very beautiful promo indeed! Clap

Sweet, beautiful memories;

But you missed the little side notes I left for you.

 Chick, my lovely girl.. This last line shall stay with me for years. Thousand thanks for this lineHug

Sidenotes,,, remembered Snape's potions' book.Tongue 

But, more importantly sidenotes are so much a part of the reading process, trying to make sense of what's written. Much of it subjective yet not to be cast aside as whimsical or even fiction (probably it is fiction but then we all live in fictionsWink). And sidenotes, like the main text remain for future use (case in point, their letters, pictures and memory per se) forever regurgitating but not with the same or identical meaning. It shall always be lesser or more than what was penned down at that originary moment. Shravan's feelings for Sumo are those side notes which shall be overflowing into the present and yet cannot stand alone without the main text. The main text for me, is their present in all forms.. their struggle, conflict, love, and pain for each other... their relationship. 

Sidenotes and the main body of the text shall continue to be written and rewritten, read and reread.

One day, you shut it close...

Shoved it into nowhere.

I let it lie there,

As the Headlines waited for me.

Thats the beauty of a sidenote.. ask any student they would prefer only old books because they have those sidenotes to make their present reading far more intelligible. Headlines are temporary but sidenotes linger on... alive, pulsating brimming with life. Making the text ever so layered... meant to be simple, sidenotes often keep on accumulating as many times we read and as multiple people read.

One day, you brought it back to me.

And I refused to look at it...

Pushed it back to the empty hole,

Where it couldn't be banished again.

 Can it be banished? LOLOver time, these become the main text illuminating the originary text in so many different ways.

The album revealed itself,

Slowly, the pages started to fill.

And then it struck me today,

We were revisiting history.

History is rereading from the vantage point of the present. And those sidenotes again enable the fossilized history to be alive amidst the ruins of the present to rebuild, make whole those ruins.

 

You are the girl I admire,

I am the boy you befriended,

The same lovelorn teenager...

We are back at the same page.

Chick, you are slaying girl.Clap That is the beauty of the text and the sidenotes, isnt it? To arrive at the same page and yet it is not the same. Possibilities emerge where there was none. Shravan encountered Suman where there was only supposed to be Sumo. Re-reading of sidenotes, does not often lead to the same meaning.. it forever exceeds the limits of its own understanding.


Suman:  

Yes, we are back at the same page...

The one that lay incomplete,

Waiting for us to fill it with colours,

As we advance together.

 

But my hands are tied...

My steps are hindered...

I don't want to be the one between

You and Your Happiness.

 

My heart filled with gratitude...

Your triumphs weigh up on me.

You have scaled the skies...

How can we ride as equals?


 

Woh Haq Kahan se laon?

 

We have gushed over the most beautiful promo...the words that caught me the most were these. 

Woh Haq? What Haq? The Haq to stop him? The Haq to love? The Haq to come between him and his family?

Then I dismissed it, since Suman was very much considered a part of the Malhotra Family by Shravan's father, for whom he had the highest regard.

Friday's episode changed that.

Poor Sumo was standing there by the stairs, not knowing what had hit her...and Ramnath just walked past, refusing to do anything about it.

Suman showed amazing strength in those few seconds...where she decided to sacrifice what was most important to her, because that would hurt him...

Why is it that both the families refuse to see anything beyond friendship between the two?-  Is it because they think it is impossible...that neither would cross the limits, given the obvious disparities???

How well the creative team captured the disparities...

This line that remained with me after I watched the promo. What is haq? Right over property, right over someone. Who has these rights? Often these rights come into play because of laws constituted. And rights are also hierarchical in nature. Ironical or intentional, but you do have the protagonist as a lawyer. Sumo as a teenager had unconditional right over Shravan. How was this possible? Because Shravan allowed it so or because it was made possible by his own sidenotes, own reading of their relationship. Probably , Suman's sidenotes merged with that of Shravan.

But, as I said rights means possession over someone or something. Was it always a case of unequals? Do the sidenotes now dont add up or they have been erased? But, they havent been as we know both Shravan and Sumo's sidenotes have become more potent over the years. Then why this query about haq? Is it possible that new sidenotes are being written or have been... that are attempting to negate their sidenotes.. haq which was never asked or demanded or pleaded.. has found new connotations. Yet, whose sidenotes shall emerge stronger? This is where this show has kept us glued. And, I hope continue to do so.

Those small messy sidenotes refuse to be erased away.. they shall fight, reclaim and find new frames to be encoded.

As Shravan was celebrating the Tiwaris' success, amongst a family that was loosely tied back together again...The Malhotras were enjoying a casual night...they would give anything to be together...Be it Ramnath or Kamini...Even if their reasons were different...And how they resist a outsider coming between the projected unity of that family...Even if it is Suman.  Suman Tiwari- That nuisance of a girl...who would tag behind Shravan to get small favours out of him...How preposterous to think she would have the courage to dream of someone like Shravan!

Shravan- Namik- was phenomenal in the last scene...From helplessness and anger, he went to mellowing as Suman entered...and imploring as he tried to reassure her...and finally in the precap...destroyed.  The whole sequence of events was completely against everything he had believed in all these years.

His father asked for the impossible...Probably because it has never occurred to Ramnath what Suman meant to his son. How would he, when Suman herself doesn't.

 But when it comes to the two of them, Shravan would always put Suman first...and she would put him first over herself...Is there a better way to celebrate your love?- Living for each other...Ek Duje Ke Vaaste.Heart

Yes, Shravan Mehlotra may have still to learn a lot about his profession, but he would never have to go back to the drawing board to learn what it means to love and sacrifice for love. What is selfishess and self-centredness. The bariqian between right and wrong which had become blurred after what his father had spoken to him became ever the more clearer after he encountered that girl facing the biggest crisis of her life. His father spoke about the greater good.. what Sumo showed him was that goodness will never (at least my reading of it or my sidenoteWink) be separate from the one you love. Goodness as the sidenote of these two troubled but wonderful individuals have shown is never separate or divergent from the one you love and care.


PS: Back to the promo- I love the way they have integrated the teenaged couple...More than a couple getting separated, it gave the feeling of two people getting back to where they had left. Embarrassed Where had they left? Where Shravan had wanted Suman to know his feelings...I am hoping the next track will be about that...How Shravan would want Suman to know that he wants to take their relationship to the next level.Wink

Their sidenotes are being cleaned and made anew and possibly the next stage will show them building upon the lost sidenotes

 

 

Take a bow, Chick for this wonderful post Clap
