“Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart, or burn down your house, you can never tell.”
– Joan Crawford
This quote of Joan Crawford compares love to fire. There are always the two extremes in love. The fire of your love can give you the required warmth or can even burn your house.
While pondering over this beautiful quote, it suddenly reminded me of the love of Devakshi as we have witnessed in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi. There was always the rawness, the passion in their love. They loved each other to the core; sometimes they got their share of affection, at other times this untamed heat caused great damage to them too.
If we see, in a way, the fire element has played an inconspicuous but respectable role in Devakshi’s story. The whole journey of Dev and Sonakshi, along with their troubles and happiness, was subtly followed by fire, which was obscure yet sizeable.
From times they spend with each other lighting the bonfire, to the instance when the same fire had engulfed their relationship – this flame has many stories to tell.
In short, the theme of fire was prevalent in the story but was very subtle.
Let us start with one of the most pleasant memories of Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi that we have. The time when fire was incorporated into Devakshi’s lives probably for the first time. It was dark and the lights went off. Sona, being afraid of darkness, stayed with Dev side by side while he went to search for candles.
In the kitchen, he lighted a matchstick and Sona’s face reflected the fire. Her face lighted up and the girl had a certain aura which the scene portrayed.
Both looking at each other it seemed as if the single matchstick had erased the darkness all around. The fire being ignited by Dev while it was Sonakshi who reflected it.
In the future episodes, it was she who reflected the actions of Dev; while Dev became softer and more open towards Sonakshi, she in turn became more responsive towards his feelings, his unsaid emotions and thus laid the stepping stones of their love.
This fire was soft, the matchstick only gave a limited amount of heat, indicating that the future of Dev and Sonakshi was going to be like that only. To sustain the fire of a match we need to transfer it into something bigger, something substantial, let’s say a candle. Similarly to keep the affection alive, they too would need to give efforts and convert the wayward feelings into something bigger such as love.
The marriage of Devakshi had the fire at the altar – the ritualistic fire which was significant for the wedding ceremony that took place that day. Full of energy and blaze, it paved the way for their marriage ahead……..contd.
