Ahh good, Shilpa...you've saved me the trouble of making a post...I'm just going to blab in your post...so bear with me and my rambling for a bit :PI was finding it hilarious how long they were dragging out the lean in for the kiss
.I too kept thinking why they were dragging it ..i was like , call me when thats over.
..like almost like pendulums they would both sway...slowww motion mein...atleast 5 minutes must have passed like that
...swaying inch by MINUTE inch closer together...lol...some of the camera angles in this scene were weird but nice overall. And something's weird about this "night lighting" cuz it makes both their lips look blue/purple sometimes...lol...yeah I'm noticing random things...haha
The silence in the moment when Navya backs away from the kiss and he's just looking at her in confusion...really well executed...no bg music, nothing..
. I liked it how at places today they had the BG musc off , while the basketball playing also, it was like complete emptiness and suddenly all the guilt pouring in Anants mind.
and then BAM the phone rings out of nowhere startling both of them...and Anant getting the shock of his life seeing BABA flashing on the phone
...CSB was at his creepy best in this scene...jai ho! lol...the "bhagwaan chahte the" and all bit I can still get but what the hell was up with the random "bolo Om namah shivay" in the end? Hain?
...Anant was TERRIFIED out of his mind and it showed on his face
..I was simply blown away by Shaheerz acting today , his eyes told it all , he hardly had any dialogues other than the talk on phn , but all the turmoil , guilt ..whatever we may say was reflected clearly in his eyes.
.talk about zor ka jhatka...lol...and poor Navya was standing there the entire time waiting in confusion? Awww...I'd thought she'd run off by then...but she didn't.
Another interesting bit...the way AN look at each other after the call ends...especially Anant's expression as he is still processing all the OTT stuff his baba has blabbed at him...and suddenly Appy emerges...the way Anant slowly starts backing away...I felt sorry for both of them in that moment...Navya toh obviously is still in her naive confusion but Anant had this expression of a lot hitting home at last and realizing that this was symbolic of him having to back off from her otherwise too. - i too feel the same here.
Next, the basketball scene...ok firstly Anant/Shaheer doesn't know how to play bball...LOLLLI never noticed it ,after reading this i went back and saw..and yes he didn't score a basket
...his dribbling was cracking me up SO much
He was pounding the ball in like this REALLY hilarious manner...but anyways moving to the real point of the scene...Anant's turmoil and anger at himself...the flashbacks were very well woven in and the voices ringing in Anant's head...Navya, his own voice asking Navya for the kiss back, CSB's voice...all of it overlapping in his head and adding to the turmoil...oh and again...Shaheer needs a haircut...his hair was looking even worse with those ZULFEIN all sweaty and stuff...lol...Anyways the scene gets more interesting when Ranbir pops in all chirpy and happy...and says JUST the things to make Anant realize just HOW much he had lost control...And did anyone notice how Anant couldn't score a single basket?? He kept trying and his frustration kept increasing but he couldn't score a single one...Ranbir scored one pretty easily...lol...I don't know if that was symbolism too...or just that Anant is a HORRIBLE bball player...lmao. That moment was awesome when Ranbir calls him SANT Anant who would view Ranbir as a "ghor paapi"...the anger in Anant's voice there as he bursts out at Ranbir...woah...-Awesome dialogue , he just hit the bull in the eye. It was like Anant's inner voice making a mockery of him.
I also liked the girly talk scene b/w R-A-N...gossiping over Ritika's romantic encounter with Ranbir but Navya herself so confused and wondering about her own feelings regarding what had just happened...asking her "darr nahin lagta?" LOL...I must say though that Appy is a total dumbass that she couldn't figure AT all that Navya wouldn't randomly go and stand next to the bonfire aevein...but oh well.
Precap is interesting...it's not a cut direct from Anant...he's gone back to being polite, impersonal Anant...but poor Navya is obviously confused...now she'll be thinking for a while...and so will Anant...even if he doesn't want to think...lol
*Edit: Oh I forgot to say I agree with you on the whole fears of emotions bit...yeah Anant is terrified of his own emotions and his lack of control over those emotions when it comes to Navya...so he will obviously try to stay away from her...but I don't think Navya will let him off without giving her an explanation...seeing the way she persistently tried to talk to him even after the whole "main aisi nahin hoon" misunderstanding, she will deffo corner him sooner or later to talk about this situation too...remains to be seen what Anant will say then.
wonderful post , its has almost everything I wanted to say .
