Absolutely terrific post..
That slap was THE answer to the likes of creepy men who use, objectify and humiliate women..
Ananya did make all of us, and perhaps even her Kabir Sir proud by taking that drastic step.. (Isn't that what Kabir did when he set out to protect Dr. Sinha?) Ditto.. There's no difference at all..
She risked everything, her job, her self-respect, and losing her hero's trust, and yet she did it all without caring a darn about the consequences, only because she wanted to protect a scarred, broken woman from being paraded in front of the world..
One could call it dare-devilry, or being self-righteously pious, but it wasn't either!
She was just being a sensitive, strong woman who valued the price of a fellow human being's life above all..
And kudos to the CV's for portraying it flawlessly..
Standing up to Kabir, and putting forth her point - She may have been wrong in not trusting her bosses, and also acted unprofessionally, which cannot be refuted..
But that is her decision, one she must have reached upon after a lot of deliberation..
Kabir, although angry at her for her lack of professionalism, and believes that they ought to use this example to cite the hypocrisy of our society, isn't a heartless Hitler..
I, for one am hoping that once the issue is sorted, and they're done covering Mahi's story, Kabir-Ananya have a small meaningful conversation..
They need to be able to understand each other better.. Even if Kabir is a recluse, I hope he starts opening up, coz she certainly needs his guidance professionally..
Personally, I loved the 'pinning to the wall' scene, for its live-wire like energy and the subtlety with with Ananya put forth her arguments.. Also, I feel Kabir may have realised that what she did was perhaps for a better good.. But he cannot, and should not give her the impression that she is allowed to take them for granted..
Ananya's hurt, disbelief and disappointment were brought out flawlessly..
I feel it'll be Ananya who shall bring Mahi to KKN willingly, and place her trust in Kabir to do the right thing..
That is the only redemption for her unprofessional behaviour, but it will also go a long way in cementing the 'shaky trust' between Kabir and herself..
Needless to say, Mr.Sharma will be bowled over by her bold act, if she does so and will ensure that her trust isn't misplaced..
Anyhow.. I am actually in awe of Kritika since last night.. Time and again, she has proven to be a director's actor.. Right from her first show as EK's stereotypical female lead Arohi, to feisty, bubbly, opinionated Ananya Kashyap, she has come a long way..
Not just Kabir, but I feel Rajeev too has met his match (Strictly, on a professional level)..
The guy is a powerhouse of talent, and emoting anger, pain, longing, strength of character just comes naturally to him, which is all what Kabir is about..
Kritika as Ananya is picking up the mantle..
After a really long time, we have two equally-strong headed, uncompromising leads.. And I really hope it stays that way..
