Are you planning to kill me ladki??
That was so effin' good!!
Forever misunderstood character of TBP = Mr. Ranveer shergill.
Although, he was even more misunderstood in season 1 than now, he still doesn't get his due credit as the complex character he is. I honestly empathize with ranveer more than any other character in TBP, even when I don't show my love for him that much. But, since he is the other half of Rahi, I automatically love him just as much, also because his character along with panchi's have had so much scope for growth that I can't help being so concerned for them as characters. Up until anand sir was here, we could clearly see that growth, they both had grown and matured immensely. I will keep this discussion limited to Ranveer since this os is about him, but as I was saying, this dude has always been misunderstood and never been appreciated enough for his good will and caring attitude towards others. Sure, He took panchi for granted in season 1 or even in season 2 sometimes, but don't you sometimes take the ones who are closest to you for granted? I know, I have done that to a certain degree all my life! But, when ranveer does it, he is judged so harshly by everyone! Nobody sees that lonely soul who is just looking for love and comfort. and If cvs are planning to go along with the veeni track, I will be forever disappointed with the fact that rukmini also failed to recognize and see that lonely ranveer inside of the facade he puts up. He just wants LOVE, he is not out to eat anyone! *sigh* I'm done with my rant!
On to your os, Seriously, I think you took this os to another level by focusing only on ranveer! The transition from the Casanova phase to that sensitive and heart broken phase was just so smooth and beautiful! I could literally imagine the two different ranveers infront of me, I could almost see that transformation. I think this is your best work in terms of that aspect, that transition for me just stole the whole spotlight and made this piece utterly brilliant!
The ranveer you portrayed in this os brought back all the memories of season 1, but than he had panchi by his side then, or atleast in the end, he did. but, now? Who is with him? Ranveer needs panchi, there is not such intense need from panchi's side, but from ranveer's side, it's a definite need. He needs his best friend, who no matter what always understands him, who always knows what he is feelings and what goes on in his heart. but when cvs snatch away the very need that ranveer as a character has, how is that character supposed to sustain and grow? Now, that character is almost lost and all that character growth seems like utter waste. Therefore, I'm so glad that you concluded this heart break with rahi at their classic and comforting best, and with the line.."I'd have died if I didn't have you..." He really would have died, not physically, but mentally. I think at some point rahi need each other like water, they need each other to uplift each other's spirits, recharge, and just to do all the things that they can't do with normal people because their relationship is just that much deeper. and maybe even at some point, they are each other's foundation, so for their building to sustain, both need that foundation. In short, ranveer is a needy man (not in a negative connotation, more so in an emotional aspect), and he needs someone who gives him unconditional amount of love without expecting anything in return. It won't be even wrong to say that he needs that kind of unconditional love to fill up the void of not getting his parents' love when he was little. And the only one who can give him that kind of love is panchi! That is the whole freaking point that cvs won't show, or are incapable of showing. *sigh* Screw it!
*Just realizing how much I wrote*
I totally went off on a different tangent, but your os just evoked such emotional response from me that I just couldn't help it.
This one also managed to blow me out of the water, I swear I could go on all day long about this single piece, but I will just stop here for now. Brilliant Job done, Mais!
CVs should read this and get back to their senses because right now you seem to have a better character development in this single os of yours than their countless filler episodes.
