After watching the show, I will have to differ on a few nuances (Sorry!). .... Hey dont be ... we need to see diif POVs only then the story'll be enjoyable ! I read a lot of people's views and I think I will be the loner here. But anyways my views -
"I think he didn't expect R to accept the marriage and come down dressed like a married woman ... she stumped him there ! "
I agree, he did not expect this and she stumped him.
"And Amma was lovable .... she calls G 'beta' and assures him that she'll take care of him from now on .... and there def was guilt in G's eyes"
This one, I differ. I did not feel that there was any kind of guilt in him. He was just like you said, just stumped and couldn't believe she could come out dressed up all like a newly wed bride.
"And finally the scene of the day .... R serving breakfast for G .... she does it most unwillingly and G looks quite ashamed at the royal treatment he's being given by Amma .... Amma leaves the two together ....and they look away from each other ...."
Even here .. I don't think he was even a bit ashamed. It was more "uneasiness" . Well he was getting the royal treatment .. but he was more uneasy thinking "Where have I come?", "What have I done?" , "What all I need to put up with?" and consoling himself mentally, "It is okay, I am doing this only for my mother", "I will do anything for my mother's sake" and looking away thinking, "and look at this girl.. why has she dressed up all like this" ..."who asked her to come like this?".... "and why is she showing this anger"... "If she can show anger, I will also show anger"....and further, "come on! why is she angry?, I am the victim, I need to be angry".
So, Usha, that is what I understood from his expressions .. and did not find guilt or shame ...
Now, I am uneasy to have a differing view from you ..but I definitely want him to feel the guilt and shame .. but right now from the looks of it, seems like it will take time.
Awwwww.... my dear Bee ... dont be uneasy .... remember me & my rose tinted glasses ?? .... well maybe .. just maybe, I'm looking at the scene expecting to find a remorseful G and hence I feel he's kinda ashamed .... * shrugging * ....
But you've described the thots chasing each other in G's mind soooo beautifully ... every description you used is on the dot !!!
But .... ....( the rose tinted glases come on ...again .... ) ... what you feel is 'uneasiness' ... I see it as a sure-fire sign that guilt is just below the surface ....
if he was not that wee bit guilty , he wouldn't be uneasy ... he would sit there and grin his famous grin (remember the day after the touch .. chookar mere tan ko' ... he was grinning at R's discomfort there ) ... looking very victorious ! ... He just didn't bargain for all this ' Jamaai Raj treatment' that invariably comes along with the marriage ...... granted, he's worried about his mom ... but even then he wouldn't let ANYTHING hassle him if he personally didn't feel a prick on his conscience !
G, as I see him .... can handle ppl being violent / hurtful / mean / irate .... he will steamroll them with his 'gunda-style' dhamkis .... kinda eye for an eye ..... but ... if after his unforgivable act ... someone's being 'nice' to him ... he will def feel the pinch ... that would hurt him more than any physical / verbal abuse ....
(taking off the glasses ) ..... Sighhhhhhh ... better to wait and watch ! ....
