Did you guys ever see a love struck girl or guy playing with rose petals the game of ‘He loves me, he loves me not’. We have another rather stupid version of that game being played in the show now. Dev and Sonakshi are playing ‘He/she still affects me, he/she affects me not'(Farq padta hai, farq nahi padta hai).
Well, as they would continue to play this game for some time now, I have one of my old stories in mind. Rather than coming up with something new, I would simply go ahead with an extended version of the same old story. Let’s call it the season 2 of Hope and Swan’s story.
For those who didn’t read it before here’s the first part – Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi : Dev’s Lie To His Family Made Their Relationship Status Stand As – ‘It’s Complicated’
The story starts from where it ended. Rain never came. Hope’s lies didn’t work in his favour. Ducks under-estimated him. Swan misunderstood him and she left him and all the ducks.
Hope blamed the ducks for Swan’s departure and was heartbroken. He stopped visiting the ducks. He vowed to never care about anyone anymore except himself. He promised himself that all he cares about now is himself for thinking about others has given him nothing in return. Hope left his palace.
But still rain never came. Years after years the ducks hoped for rain to come and also hoped that Hope would return. But neither came the rain nor returned their Hope. But they were never left in scarcity. He remained away but he made sure that enough water was supplied to the ducks from time to time so that they survive and continue to live. He gave them everything for survival barring himself.
The Swan had travelled to a distant place by then, a place where she hoped to find water or rain. She did find water there and she found a little swan. Swan developed affection towards the little swan and took her along. They travelled far away places together in search of rain. But one day, Swan met a known man who told her that rain would soon come in the land of Hope. Monsoon is coming and after years, it would first appear in the land of Hope.
Swan decides to travel with little swan again back to the land of hope. During their journey she told everything about her previous friends and about Hope to little swan. Swan also told her that little swan might get to meet Hope again there. This got little swan excited but she didn’t leave Swan’s side ever. Swan got reminded of Hope’s hurt and lies. But she pretended that after all these years, she has learnt to live with little swan and Hope’s memories do not affect her anymore.
Hope, on the other hand, also got to know about the weather forecast. He somehow knew that Swan might come again after years. But he told himself that it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t affect him and he is no longer bothered with her presence or absence.
But little swan loved rain. Once Hope and Swan both dreamt of enjoying the rain. And this time, little swan was bringing a lot of things with her in her magical wings. She would bring rain for everyone and also new hope for our Hope who was pretending to have become hopeless.
And I hope, someday I will be able to write the season 3 of this story too. Let’s see how big the little swan gets by then. And I guess the conclusion of this story would give enough hope to the viewers to keep imagining what might happen in Hope and Swan’s story in the coming time.
Now talking about the episode. Here’s my little tit bits –
Only Sonakshi Knows How Much Her Daughter Is Like Her Father!
‘Socho agar main waisi waali beti hoti to?’ – That would never fail to bring a smile on your face. She is surely by all means her father’s daughter too. She follows her mother by seeing and listening to her. But unknowingly, she has taken after her father in a lot of ways. Even being the ‘pooch’ (tail) of her mother is a trait of Dev, who has always been loyal to his mother for a very long time.
She loves rain too. Something, that’s common between both her parents. Now I am hoping to witness two scenes in my mind. One would be the repeat telecast of a rain sequence, this time with Soha being in it and also the repeat telecast of the earlier award function scenario. Only difference would be that last time Dev took the award as Sonakshi watched him and he gave all the credit to Ishwari. This time Sona would take the award and Dev would watch it as she would give all the credit to her daughter.
Truly life is a circle. Dev might pretend that he doesn’t care but deep down somewhere the old Dev Dixit still breathes and he would be very very ‘proud’ of Sonakshi.
Dev Dixit – The Two Edged Sword
After 7 years, Dev has learnt how to bend things his way. Something he could not do earlier. He could not control Vickey’s wrong doings in office. He could not teach his brother a lesson out of his Mama’s debt and Ishwari’s blackmailing too. But this Dev Dixit is a changed man.
He has learnt to get things the way he wants. It was a pleasure watching the changed boss in the office. Although, one might miss Tina, but this Dev surely remains to be the shrewd businessman but with a changed approach.
He is rude, straight forward, doesn’t care about consequences and doesn’t believe he is answerable to anyone. He gives guest appearances in his own office but those guest visits are enough to run the company. Vickey truly needs to learn that wearing a suit like Dev Dixit, doesn’t make you Dev Dixit.
If this was one shade of Dev, then there’s another shade of him too. That shade is a little colourful and of a pretentious flirt. The way he approached the teacher at Golu’s school, the old Dev would have run away from her had Sona still had been in his life. But this Dev doesn’t believe a little bit of flirting does any harm. This new shade of him is refreshing to watch but hard to believe.
And his last scene at the office, wherein his PA informs him about the award show where he might not want to go as Sonakshi is receiving it this year, for a a few second probably the old Dev could be seen. If he truly wasn’t affected or bothered, he would not have gone there. Especially because he didn’t attend the same award show in the last 7 years. But his saying ‘yes’ to the event, suddenly after all these years, made it evident that he wants to see her once yet again.
Ishwari And Elena Need A Comeback!
Vickey is getting his required doses once in a while at office. But Radha Rani receives none at home. She is still the same. No one makes an effort to shut her up or no one still tells her that they need not hear the filthy words that come out of her mouth. Dev doesn’t live in that house anymore. And until Ishwari and Elena start speaking or make Radha Rani go silent, the family will not get back their old happiness.
Somehow, when Radha Rani ill talked about Sona again today to Golu, Ishwari’s expressions gave nothing away. Yes, she was bothered with the words but yet again she said nothing. Elena too remained numb although she didn’t like what Radha Rani was saying. For years, they let her speak and she spoke so much that all the real speakers of the house have chosen not to speak anymore.
If Ishwari wants her son back and happiness to return back in the house, she first needs to do with Radha Rani what Dev did in office with Vickey. I am hopeful time will come when we will get to see that as well.
