Alrite.. here I am, finally able to sit and make a post. As much as I have waited for you to post something, I have been waiting to come back and write something. Not because you or the others have left something unsaid, it is purely because, I am not able to stop thinking about MaNan and hence the NEED (not want) to come and continue to gush about it.
Where do I start Nikki? And what do I say? As you said, there have been too too many posts about MaNan. Such is the magic that they have been creating. I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, that though this is supposed to be a youth show, the show, especially MaNan have captured the hearts of all ages!! Its like MaNan and their Magic Land/World,where they have pulled us all into. So, what can you say about Magic??? MaNan's magic is like a spell, from where I really find it difficult to come out. Never have I fallen in so much love with fictional characters. In fact, many a time, I forget that this is a show and MaNan are just characters. Niti and Parth are living and breathing in their roles... whatever told about their professionalism and dedication, doesn't do justice!!
Stopping the rant above, coming to your thread/ post. So beautifully you have picked the most epic scenes in the last few days. In fact, I'd say, had U asked me what was the most beautiful one- I would have really struggled to choose. For me, each and every scene of MaNan since FC night has been beautiful. And MaNan dont stop to surprise us, the way they have been growing (that is all kudos to the CVs, Director and Niti and Parth). Their relationship is as beautiful as a fully bloomed tree with flowers of PROMISES OF LOVE, CARE, AFFECTION, LOYALTY, PROTECTION AND TOGETHERNESS!!!
I dont want to go off on an tangent, which is quite easy with MaNan. I am pulling myself to come back to your post and concentrate on ur post and ONLY ur post. But I have a strong feeling I will be spamming your thread. My advanced apologies if you feel and think I did. Its really NOT me, but MaNan doing it !!! 1) The first scene of urs- the SHOWER scene. Never have I ever seen such a poignant scene on any Television, let alone Indian Telly. In fact, the whole scene leading to Nandini walking to the shower was heart-wrenching. But what struck me was, albeit in a trance, she walked into the shower, without closing the door. Of course, she was in shock and numb, but I took it as, subconsciously she wanted Manik to come help clean her. And the way Manik walked in, as if, he knew that is what Nandini expected him to do. Boy... I have such a heavy heart, thinking about it and typing it out. And Manik's expressions of seeing Nandini, without life, standing like a doll under the shower.. ! He, slowly walking upto her, very gingerly touching her to reassure her- its him, HER MANIK and then trying to clean her physical marks on the body and YES.. the standing out scene of the whole lot.. Nandini's bleeding ear. I can't recollect Manik every recoiling or reacting to his own injuries or wounds. It wasn't just Nandini's ear that was bleeding, it was HIS HEART that was bleeding. And how can U stop a bleeding heart- IT KILLS YOU!!!!!
I know you haven't mentioned the towel scene following the shower but that was also a very beautiful moment for me. I took the white towel to be a symbolism between these 2 young, innocent, pure lovers. I have made a post on this and hope you dont mind me C/P here.
And the most significant thing for me was the WHITE TOWEL, they used in the shower scene. I am sure, this is a much thought out idea by the CVs and NOT just a co-incidence.
What does the colour White signify???
WHITE symbolises PURITY, INNOCENCE, COMPLETENESS, SERENITY, HOPE, PROTECTION, CLEANLINESS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY A CLEAN SLATE FOR A NEW BEGINNING.
Nandini and Manik- OUR DEAR MANAN- they stand for everything that is WHITE.
The LOVE they have for each other is PURE.
INNOCENCE- Yes, they should have been 2 innocent teenagers, oblivious to the ways of the world, but fate and destiny have from time to time, presented them with multitude of problems and evils. But when together, they still have the power to make their lives, uncomplicated and INNOCENT yet again.
Manik and Nandini together, as MANAN mean COMPLETENESS. They are incomplete without each other.
They bring HOPE, PEACE and COMFORT to each other. Light following darkness.
The towel scene was a symbolism of Manik ensuring her his PROTECTION and like wise Nandini, reciprocating the same. They are there to protect each other at all times. He was shielding her and so was she, encasing him with her under the same blanket of encouragement and protection an security.
CLEANLINESS here means- Manik trying to help HIS NANDINI, to cleanse and strengthen her spirit and her whole self.
Finally- it is the start of a new beginning. Manik encouraging Nandu to put the past behind her, consider it as a dreadful nightmare and to move on.
And sub-consciously, Nandu (Manik's Nandini) accepted all the above gestures, joining Manik with her.
2) Your 2nd scene- the haldi wala milk scene!! Though very subtle, what a deep meaning that scene depicts. Manik and Nandini are no longer 2 different people. They are, but 1 SOUL in 2 bodies!! How very well they understand each other. Manik, drinking Haldi-Milk for the sake of Nandini, though he utterly hates the taste of it, so much so, that he almost pukes..!! And lo, behold, what does he get?? A TWINKLE in the eyes of his STAR, a small SMILE on her beautiful lips, and did anyone notice the LOVE in her eyes?? Such a beautifully shot scene- esp the reflections in the mirror and then Manik's lips slowly smiling too, seeing his beautiful Nandini smiling!! Awww... !! Really hats off to the CVs for giving us such heart-warming scenes and episodes !! 3) Finally, the last episode and the song of Jeena, Jeena!! God... Nikki, can't even begin to express how I felt watching the episode and the aftermath of it. Niti's and Parth's expressions.., they deserve a standing ovation!!
As I said before, they speak the language of LOVE and they can so well communicate even in SILENCE!!! Do they look like teen-agers in love? Definitely NOT... they look and act like very seasoned, matured lovers who have been through so much and understand each other very well- in and out!! The song, Manik's care, affection, devotion, worship, love towards Nandini- their looks, not for once, leaving each other and Nandini holding Manik's hand for that extra security and finally the fore-head kiss... which poured out all of Manik's LOVE... I really do not have any words to describe all the above. Should I say, that whole scene was poignant, touching and at the same time was so ETHEREAL and DIVINE!!! It was like Manik was soothing and calming my distressed heart, my aching heart and my weeping heart. I felt like he was singing a lullaby to comfort me. Watching that scene made me feel so at peace. Such a SERENE moment!!
No words would ever do justice to the whole scene/ episode.
I dont even want to dare go back and look what I have written. I just hope it was not mere nonsense and did make some sense.
Finally.. I once again, want to thank the whole of KY2 team (on and behind the screens) for giving us such a wonderful, fantabulous show and episodes !!!
I know, I keep saying finally and still am here... Just wanted to end with 1 song for OUR LOVELY MANAN!!
Vaada Rahaa Pyaar Se Pyaar Ka...
Ab Hum Na Honge Judaa!!
(Came by to add this song as well.. one of my all time favourites, so soulfu and emotional.. and I feel this is very apt to Manik, like "Jeena, Jeena")
Hum tere bin ab reh nahi sakte
Tere bina kya wajood mera
Tujhse juda agar ho jaayenge
Toh khud se hi ho jaayenge judaa
Kyunki tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho
Zindagi ab tum hi ho
Chain bhi, mera dard bhi
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho
