So, he is a clean slate for her, someone who doesn't remind her of her loss and sadness like say her other strong relationships - her father and Neil do - two moments in particular with Neil stand out where Sam gets upset when Neil receives Piyali's phone call and updates her on Sam. Arjun is a clean slate who caught her in vulnerable moment where her loneliness was gnawing at her. I think he especially caught on that she cannot resist melting when asked for help to solve a problem - this sense of trust that someone has in her to do something right is not something her mother her has in her.
You're spot on. Totally agree that Arjun seized the opportunity when he caught her vulnerability. I'm sure he was testing her the first time they met. The way she easily sat in his car without thinking even once of the consequences even though i felt that was a bit too much, a girl would think thousand times before entering a stranger's car but guess that was to show us how gullible she's at the moment.
Yes, and also the fact as you rightly stated that he's a clean slate. Totally unconnected to her tragic past(we could be so wrong here,Sigh) Sam's a big mess right now. I had some expectations from her Dad but I guess he's powerless in front of his wife.
