Have you ever seen a man, all rugged, broken, shattered and wrecked walking down the street with lost eyes and wondering how he even landed up in an unknown place?
Have you ever seen a man who keeps smiling with invisible tears in his eyes?
Have you ever seen a man who keeps walking, and walking and walking even if his knees give up, he still keeps walking without even knowing the direction that would make him reach his destination?
Have you ever seen a man, who is immensely rich by money yet miraculously poor by fate?
Have you ever seen a man who has loved so much, so so much that he has nothing left inside him anymore.
Have you ever seen a man who has been mercilessly punished by fate for being too good and innocent in this cruel world around him?
Have you ever seen a man, who has lost himself to his prolonged failures, frustrations and fears.
That’s Dev Dixit. And the man is empty today.
Yesterday when the episode started and Dev asked Sonakshi to shift to the guest room followed by their huge argument in that room, initially Dev’s accusation on Sonakshi would make anyone angry. Even I felt the same. After all these years, Dev was raising his finger on Sona’s character. Not done!
But by the time the episode ended, it showed us where has love landed Dev into. Today, I agree that indeed love is painful. Pyar mein dard hota hai, jab hota hai to bahut bahut dard hota hai. And too much pain makes you go numb. Yesterday Dev’s outburst was the phase before a person goes numb due to immense pain. The man is empty from inside out and everything inside him is in enormous pain. He needs some healing and soothing. And I hope he gets that very soon.
Sometimes, even writers fall short of words to explain things. Today I feel I too do not have enough words to explain the extent of pain that Dev and Sonakshi are going through. They are bit by bit breaking each other, probably to build each other again. And the process of breaking will be emotionally draining, both for them and for the viewers who love them. But indeed, to begin a new chapter, the old chapter needs to end. And yesterday’s episode marked the beginning of the end of the bitter chapter that we were reading since quite some time now.
Dev Dixit lashed out at Sona yesterday. He was rude, cruel with his words but yet probably, this outburst was needed for him to express the hurt he has been going through since ages. His words about Sonakshi’s eyes, their love, their good old days and how he followed her only because he cared for the girl whom he once loved expressed a lot about Dev’s inner turmoil. He loved her, still loves her and will keep loving her. It’s just that he is unable to say ‘I Love You’ again as easily as he could say it the first time.
Dev, Dev, you are lucky and unlucky at the same time. Everyone you have loved, has loved you back. Everything that you ever wanted, you got that eventually. It’s just that there have been hurdles on the road.
Love has various shades. If love is calm, it can be aggressive too. If it is painful, it is soothing too. If it can control you then it can be uncontrollable too. Right now it’s the painful, aggressive and uncontrollable love that is dominating you. It’s the wound of seven long years that has become a scar now. Let the scar get hurt again, let the wound open up again. Only then it can be healed completely.
People might say that Dev and Sonakshi need to fall in love again. But I have a different explanation. You both have fallen too deeply in love, so deep that it’s impossible to dive back. And since, you have already fallen deeply in love, it’s best to rise high in love this time.
