My take for that particular day was...!!
''A mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven'' - Paradise Lost.
The shit hath hit the ceiling - all the sane world of fans curse the Night of Wonder, while the ''Idiots'' appreciate the sheer genius of the creators.
The episode as expected did not have the complete SR cuz for that we needed atleast a 2 hr show. I don't think they'll stop at this cuz
a) we got no precap
b)ppl were waiting for this more than Maneet's shaadi
c) it's logical.
The show all in all was superhit - blockbuster material. Mamey, Lucky, dev, Nandini, Maneet, temi and Beeji...eah n every character was there, n well etched out!!
Mamey rocked - d'oh..he always does. our lubhely mota khamba
Lucky - my phuska hero...lubh u - he sees stuff the first and magnificently blotches it up.
Dev-Nandini...dono character namoone hain bas.
Loved Dev's shaatir dimaag for a change...he didn't succumb under pressure like he normally does.
Ppl are angry that he ran with Geet n Nandini, when Maan asked and didn't stay to help Maan. Frankly, i think it was smart. He knows he'll only be a liability to stay on n fight...it'll add to Maan's work to takin care of him...So it's logical, he be of help n get the girls out of there...to safety and let te capable one do the job well.
Nice move CVs. it had gr8 flow nad nice progression.
Loved the part of the kasam as Nandini as witness.
Getting to Maneet.
I don't get the fan's anger. It was perfect, it was chaste ...it was sensuous...even more than RTM in some ways.
The fact that they're there, one in mind soon to be so in body...
I think the fans have overworked their minds.
The entire raw, natural surrounding was perfect...
Gonna add a bit of my take to someone else's criticims!!
For me,, this sequence is quite apt. I don't want to call it Suhag raat cuz frankly they're way past that stage. It's more of a physical intimacy and need. It's about exploring a new part of their relationship.
If i put myself in Maneet's shoes...what do I see
- I love the gal, she loves me. We wanna make out, oops no, we're not married, can't do it yet,
- then the baby might get hurt, too bad,
- anger takes control -separation -
- living under one roof - can't even sleep in each other's arms,
- going out with a pain of a sister and a now-loyal brother - thieves caught them...
- running for their lives...have to shack up in a barn - exhausted but finally together...
It's a release!! it's catharsis -with maneet it's not only about making love for pleasure, it's more pure than that. They've been through a life-threatening ordela...they just want to have a sort of release...also...it's been on their mind forever!
And, let's not forget, Geet wants it as much as he does, ya. He's even more exhausted, but the feelings have been rising to the surface for both of them since the karva chauth...so I think it's perfect.
And it has this naturalistic element...not made up in a bedroom, with a cakeful of make-up on geet and silky much used bed covers...but in the most raw, unsophisticated, basic state...it's symbolic of their state of mind and situation; how they must be feeling.
I added the quote in blue, cuz it's in a person's mind how they perceive Maneet...and in my perception the night was magical. It was innocent - the part where geet said she's ready - i liked her speaking up - a 21st-ish century woman...u know...not showing thru actions she's ready...she's not embarrassed to speak about it. It was handled boldly in a sense n thats how it should be.
People tend to treat sex as a taboo - when it's the most natural process ever...so when this is post-marital sex between to equal individual...why the hush-hush nature!
Maneet always have been n will be different - jo bhi ho hatke hoga...toh I actually liked that part...she wants it , he wants it...no law in the world can stop them, them why the hell not!
