Gulaal has so long faced everything with courage. All or most women have the courage to face challenges. Its only the circumstances that sometimes make women a little weak. However strong a woman is, there are certain low points in her life where she would want to cry her heart out, shut herself from the world. That is the behavior of any normal woman.That usually gives her time to gather more strength.
Gulaal is just becoming a normal woman for a change in front of Kesar's love and behavior as she has been getting solid hints that he has fallen for her.
I like this temporary behavior(hopefully) from her which would give her space to come to terms with the facts. Gulaal took a decision that was most suitable at the time of Deeyarvattu. Her father once told her that certain decisions which appear right now may appear wrong in future.So instead of being a superwoman by deliberately suppressing her feelings, I like to see this momentary weak phase of her life. SHE IS NORMAL THAT WAY.
By being normal, it gives a hope that she would in future be ready to give a consideration to her happiness too. The Imli scene when she received it from Kesar and when she cried picking up the strewn Imlis from ground after assuring Motabha about Kesar-Talli alliance, enjoying Kesar's care and companionship during her illness, her disappointment when Kesar said he would have helped anyone in distress(the drowning scene after) is all proof that she has a normal woman in her too.
So if she is trying a short escapism, I love to see that.
