I'm only human,
Sanam, you know my heart hasn't fully recovered from the last vm
khayr, I only need to remain breathing...
I loved the theme you chose for this, so beautifully expounded by you and illuminated throughout but BANG! right in the middle, at the heart and in the heart of your piece, @1:00, with that perfectly chosen line, Mujhe nupur ki yaad nahi ati kyun maine usse kahbi bulaya hi nahi
True, we only remember what we forget. However here reminding us of the strength of Mayank's heart for most would abandon those memories that come with bittersweet pain, he doesn't forget because
he is always remembering her. Just beautifully illuminated by you.
I loved the use of dialogue in the vm to add depth. However what I loved even more was that flipping from colour to black and white, of the vm near the beginning, and again at the end, my favourite being, @0:24/25 almost a flickering effect, as slowly a light is struggling to remaining on, that ardent love that he
never let go out, a hope,
that never died even with her death, that NOW is gaining strength and breathing life, colour back into his life. Beautifully done!
I loved, JUST LOVED, that moment you choreographed @0:35, who will bring me flowers...
Sanam just heart twistingly beautiful!
Was that your fading @0:55/ 56? If so just spectacular!
Then again that wondrously beautiful moment which you choreographed so finely @1:10, don't ever say goodbye,
then the crash of cymbols to cover their heart's shattering, @0:13 which you enhance as the colour seeps out their lives, upon which you choreographed that long silence, from 0:13 to 0:21, that lull in the song and their
storm. For there is nothing to say anymore, ever, F
or we speak so many words for necessity BUT those special sentences we keep sacred those words for those whom our hearts seek to keep bound by them. Just heart wrenching!
That stark echo of Nupur's rakh hogayi...
within that silence adding weight and pressure upon that hurt that you would think would destroy him BUT you choreograph that rise in the song, so that lingering i'm only human
seemingly a weakness in that echo that being human means that we are weak too. HOWEVER, that silence, shows us another side to it, another connotation, that by being only human
that means strength too,
can not give up and so BANG, @1:33 the rousing music kicks in over that lyric, to illuminate that momentum, that fire still burning within him! Just outstanding!
That determined look of Mayank's @1:35, just wonderfully chosen!
and the music and the choreography just overwhelming my heart and reminding me that when you love, you love with ALL you heart, for if you protect yourself by putting up borders around the most fragile part of your heart by doing so, you protect
yourself from a deeper love too. I remember this star wars poster with the tag line,
'a jedi shall not know anger, nor hatred...Nor love.'
We can not protect
ourselves from pain by not also protecting ourselves from true love, for true
love means being open, thereby exposed and so vulnerable, fragile. However the thing about light, love being a part of light, a small enough is
enough to dispel, destroy and bring to desolation any darkness. So, when I love with all my heart despite that it fact that it means I will hurt with all my heart too.
I loved it!
Just give me time to recover before the next onslaught, for the sake of this fighting heart.
With much love, Sabah
