Awesome captures Nur!...I pretty much have the same thoughts as you mentioned for the photograph scene...they find comfort in these memories, they miss it ..miss what they shared back then...a lot has changed since then..at least he has his reasons...Gulaal just has hints that something is unbalanced here in their relationship..she's still trying to discern what it is.
I liked how she sneaked into his room to place the album..hehe..and that one moment you described..he realizes she has kept it there..like JZ mentioned in the last thread..there is a connection from the imli scene to here..by giving her those imlis he let her see that the old Kesar is still alive hiding behind somewhere..so she takes it as a chance to get one step further and find out more. Catching him off guard, she gets some of her answers cleared..he hasn't gone astray...his family, Vasant and more importantly Gulaal still holds priority..
@Gulaal's FB..isn't it amazing..she still has this neatly ironed school uniform of his in her
cupboard 10 yrs later...simply shows how much she held on to his memories while he was away. I love that young Kesar-Gulaal scene...so so lovely...trust Kesar to come up with such excuses to stay away from school...and I loved how he replied to each of Gulaal's words...
...one mention of her leaving and it gets him all serious even though he probably knew she was joking...he'd do anything to have her with him always...and now he does the exact opposite, does not want to listen to her, does not find the need to listen to her...he is rebelling and she has no clue why..if she compares and contrasts his reaction to the photo album and the earlier outburst...all she gets is mixed signals...poor Galool..
Kesar once again reliving that moment of truth...I like how he wipes away the tear and walks out..as if thinking he can't be only sitting there hurt with the facts..but he has an agenda that needs to be sorted out...but again like we see it's not easy for him to go confront her immediately..
@Letters...one of the 2 things that always revive the sense of betrayal, the burning questions...I noticed how the letters are also torn around the edges...the amount of times they have been read and re-read...nice touch..(of course it could also be the number of retakes with it..hehe but I'll prefer the other reason..lol)...what I love about the letters is all his thoughts there are clear cut...all the questions are listed...precisely the same ones he actually musters up the courage to ask her many days later..with as much anger as he wrote them during the past decade..
Talli interrupted...it was like all the anger he felt that moment was directed as Talli..she had to bear the brunt for a minute there..of course Talli where are your manners?..uff never mind..
And when Gulaal enters like Nur says time stands still...everything else blacks out..lol...and she's actually being very formal in this exchange..conveys the message and leaves..I think what leaves him startled is that he was running around with Talli a moment earlier...showcasing that child like side of his..and Gulaal saw him like this..something he surely doesn't want her to get comfortable with at this point..
Edit: Word to your post JZ!..the bits about his letters so true..he passes the judgement and assumes it to be the deserving one..
I'll join you in applauding JK!..lol...the woman and her lines are epic indeed
..and yes from the moment Kesar has returned she indirectly forces Gulaal to think of the future..but it does not make much of an impact..cos dear Galool has spun her own web of a Kesar Talli happily ever after...
