He was brilliant today. Superlative
You have described it so well
Yesterday, they showed range of emotions which Shravan had to undergo and in all this Namik was supreme.
Three scenes stayed with you for a long time:
One, the rubik cube scene: how intelligent was that? Rubik cube, the entry point to Sumo and Shravan's relationship... a puzzle which can only be solved by our lawyer friend. For the past ten years, this cube had not made a move because Sumo was unable to deal with its intricacies,
forever awaiting to be handled by someone intelligent.. Ten long years, Sumo's life had been incomplete without the intelligence, the maturity and innate sensitivity of her nerdy friend... A life which was incomplete is taking its baby footsteps towards becoming whole or solving the puzzle called love. I do firmly believe that even if Pushkar wouldnt have been around Shravan Malhotra would have arrived at the same conclusion.. solving Sumo's problem. Rubik cube enacted a metaphoric transformation in Sumo's life and in turn , in Shravan's as well. Cubes would be put in place slowly and gradually.. the turn has taken momentum where their lives again will go into a slow rewind to perform the next stage of their journey together.
Second, Sumo's dilemma and conflict outside the court. Her mind telling her that he would not arrive yet her heart looking behind once, hoping he would be there. In spite of everything that had transpired the last night, Sumo felt, knew or believed he would come. Why?
Kyunki, Shravan bana hi hai uske help ki liye
This girl has not acknowledged her feelings and neither has she realized the depth of Shravan's feelings for her... yet she knows, she feels, she trusts. Totally a Coleridgean moment.. it was so suggestive and ripe with that mysterious, enigmatic emotion.. we otherwise label as love.
Lastly, two eyelock scenes inside the court. First, Shravan's entry and his eyelock with sumo... If Sumo's eyes showed pain, shock.. and an unknown emotion, Shravan's was reassurance, comfort and a response to her inexplicable feelings. Second eyelock when Sumo's mothers' name was cleared. There was so much peace and calm in that eyelock.. as if the world had stopped for both of them. There was elation and triumph in both Sumo and Shravan's eyes. But, Shravan's eyes registered something more.. as if he acknowledged that he was doing it only for her. Truth counts because she is that truth. Victory matters because her appreciation defines victory..
Success for Shravan was not about winning the case but rising in her estimation. Success was sweet because she was a part of it
As usual, Dyotona.. your post was awesome
And, THIS my friend is what they call a MASTERPIECE!!
Take a bow, lady!!
Indrani, haven't told you this before
Your understanding of human emotions is SUPERLATIVE
And they way you WEAVE it all together
Takes it to a different level
Am truly privileged to have found friends like you in this forum
I was so hoping that somebody would make a post on the finer nuances...was dying to do it myself...but just wanted to let myself soak in the celebrations of Shraman, THE lawyer!
You have described the metaphorical connotations of the rubik cube BRILLIANTLY, Indrani
The CVs sure used it intelligently...what an apt symbolism it is for Shravan!
Loved your expressions of the other stand-out moments as well
Would like to add a few more that stayed with me long after...
1. LOVED, absolutely LOVED the split second moment of that outdoor shot when they show the aircraft flying off ...what a beautiful metaphor it was for the UNCONDITIONALITY of Shravan's love
His trials and tribulations are only his...he expects nothing in return...
The fact that he could make peace with the demons of the past is enough
The fact that he has discovered Suman in the guise of Sumo is enough
The fact that it is this discovery which is his source of strength in his darkest hour is enough
The fact that there is possibly all that there will be to this relationship is enough
It is the strength of this realization that is enough
Expecting nothing in return
What a SUPERLATIVE connotation of UNCONDITIONALITY!!
That look on Shravan's face as he turned around
Or was it some kind of inner calling
As you so rightly said...Shravan would have taken exactly the same decision, Pushkar notwithstanding...
He had made up his mind much earlier...
What an AMAZINGLY well written character, this Shravan Malhotra
2. The other one was the final eyelock...at the end of the verdict
Was so beautifully done
And spoke volumes...
That momentary exchange
When neither Shravan nor Sumo uttered a single word
That look of fulfillment in Shravan's eyes
As Suman 'reached out'
His sense of Righteousness had a whole new meaning
And the gravity of it...
Something else altogether
What a beautiful way to put forth such an important life lesson...
"You don't need to be infallible to be a hero"!!
As you so rightly mentioned...
We're all so happy, delighted actually
Not just for Shravan, but Namik also
The guy has truly, truly come a LONG way!!
