Just replying to previous posts:
Aww you found sense in my nonsense?
LOVED the way you worded Naku's evolution. So true!
They've both come a long way. I think it just shows how everything they've been through together was MEANT to happen JUST so they could be at this phase in their lives. They were meant to go through all those ups and downs so that today their bond would be stronger than ever. And now they will never take their relationship for granted. They both have this gratefulness and appreciation for how far they've come and everything they have been through together. I just find it so beautiful how these two can manage to make each other smile even in these tough times. It's almost like an inside joke between them, that look how far we've come. If we have survived all that, then there's NO WAY we can't deal with anything that comes our way in the future. They are both filled with this optimism at this point which is why Dutta was so calm and cool in Monday's episode. And it's pretty important for Dutta to be this level-headed and positive in order to face someone like Kala. Who will do her best to bring him down and mess with his head. So he needs this...ok I'm going to be really filmy here...but he needs this 'shakti
'. It really helps that DN's bond is now stronger than ever because Dutta needs this strength to face Kala. He needs all the positive emotions, level headed-ness, optimism and strength he can get. For that ultimate good vs. evil battle to take place. I'm SO excited for when Dutta faces Kala for SO many reasons!
*high five* for loving that "Bol Naku" part. And oh that's SO it...what you said about Dutta reassuring Naku in ways she knows best. That "surkasha kavach" dialogue showed this exactly. Dutta knows how Naku has faith in Bappa and these types of omens like pandit jee calling her Dutta's "suraksha kavach" and all. So this way he is enhancing Naku's own faith. He's kind of telling her to be herself almost. Believe in what she believes in...keep the faith. Just like she's always told him to believe in Bappa and goodness. In this moment, he's the one telling her the same thing. It's just so beautiful how these two will always bounce back on each other and support each other like that. Even when Naku herself is doubtful or scared...despite her strong faith in Bappa...Dutta will be there to reassure that faith in her.
I just love how these characters are so imperfect too. I mean I liked how Naku didn't just automatically start with that tilak thing and go "all the best" right away. She was initially scared, and it's just so human to be that way. Even the most perfect and optimistic of people can be scared sometimes. Because it's just a human tendency. And I loved how Dutta says this to Naku. That it's ok to be scared..."Kyunki hum insaan hain, bhagwan nahin". I think it's beautiful how Dutta's the one saying this to Naku now. Remember how Dutta used to be so hard on himself for reacting the way he did, not being able to deal, in the past? And Naku used to be the one that told him that it's ok...you are just emotional...but you have a good heart. You may not be perfect or make the best decisions at times...but inside it all you have a beautiful heart and I can see it. She basically told him that it's ok to be human and falter at times. And Dutta too in a similar way was reassuring Naku in this episode. Telling her that it's ok. I just love how we get to see all these various shades to these characters all the time. And that "suraksha kavach" dialogue was an adorable touch. It just showed how well Dutta knows Naku and knows exactly how to get through to her. He knows how to be there for her when she needs it just like she's also always there for him.
And that home wala point. So true that Naku is Dutta's home because she brings him that peace and happiness associated with a home. And I think Naku has played a part in strengthening Dutta's emotions towards his family too. Not that Dutta didn't love his family earlier also or anything. But I'm sure he also took his family for granted...and we all do that at times. But at this point, he really YEARNS to be with his family...just to be at home. He yearns for things like Baaji's antics, AS's comfort, his sisters' bickering, gaajar ka halwa/home cooked food and of course Naku's love. He appreciates these simple pleasures a lot more now. He just yearns for moments of peace, happiness and love with his family.
And I think Dutta needs these kinds of emotions to fight with Kala too. These strong and positive emotions towards goodness and peace. These are the qualities that will help him face Kala. Also him keep a clear head about WHY he is fighting against Kala even though she is his sister. These are the emotions that will help Dutta judge right from wrong also. Something he's always had trouble doing. When he sees that ultimate goal of peace for him and his loved ones, he will have that drive to fight for what is right. Even though I am sure Kala will still mess with his head and he will get conflicting emotions while facing her...in the end these 'positive' emotions and this drive will help him win.
haha and I know! Dutta's sarcasm was SO awesome to watch! Again just shows how calm and cool he is at this point. He knows exactly what he is doing and he knows how to handle people like Bhola JI and all.
He has SUCH confidence in him now!
LTL reminds me of movies like Sholay and stuff too. With everything from action, drama, romance, friendship and relationships. I've gotten to appreciate LTL as a whole so much more now. There's SO much to this show. I think Fatty...or you or someone said this once about how LTL just takes you into a different world altogether and just absorbs you into it. Oh and about the villains too. So true. I love how LTL gives this personality to their villains. It's just so much more awesome then, when those villains are defeated. As opposed to ordinary aire gaire tuche type ke villains. It's just no fun when lame types of villains get defeated. In that case villains are just annoying and a CHORE to watch. In LTL however, these villains are WORTH getting faced with and defeated. So it's much more satisfying to watch them finally meet their end, as that poetic justice is served.
And so true about aaj kal ki movies not having that masala. Bless LTL for letting us reminisce those that way. Especially those of us that grew up in the 90's with these kinds of movies.
I think when I think of hindi movies, I think of 90's ki movies only. Because that's the era I grew up in maybe. So I love how LTL has these 90's movies ke touches. Makes the show even more refreshing to watch. And in today's age too...where 'hawtness' and superficiality rules...never mind just showing something poignant and with depth! As if that's not worth appreciating already, adding this masala flair to it too...just makes it that much more fun to watch.
