:lol!: Tip tip barsa paani ! The promo shows Jalal shouting 'Ruk jaaiye Jodha Begum, yeh hamaara hukm hai ' she apparently will flout that hukm too.Tanthya wrote:Thankooj, Sonia :heart: :heart:sonia1 wrote:So beautifully written Sathu . Only you could have explained the significance of colors so well !
His samsheer first betrayed him during sword fight with Jodha, where he blamed her beauty and now she has colored it too .
Its a pleasure to read you :) Will wait for the next gem !
he has also begun to walk the path too , now for tomorrow when both do tip tip barsa paani.
Thank You for appreciating my efforts, hun

Thank you.Tanthya wrote:Thank You, vandana :)..I am embarrassed to admit, I ahven't a foggiest idea of what I wrote during Holi of IPk, but I sure as hell hope that it was nothing that would have me squirmingGgn_girl wrote:Wow. Super description of Holi and its purpose.Tanthya wrote:A episode that had all the colours of life , Happiness, Sadness,Anger,manipulation and love!!
Jodha is counting her days , her last days of stay in Agra, Contrary to her expectation, the thought of leaving Agra does not fill her with relief nor happiness , Her eyes seem to be searching for a sign, a minutest flicker that might halt her departure but so for none are forthcoming or are being lost in translation !
Holi , a festival of colors,Colors of life, Holi a symbol of triumph, Triumph of Prahlad's love and devotion, Holi, a harbinger of warmth, daylight , a festival heralding the end of winter !! Will this Holi end the winter in the relationship of Jalal and Jodha and announce the arrival of spring, A spring of love, trust, devotion !
Will this spring be the bridge connecting two cultures, two religion, two individuals and fusing them as one !! Hopefully yes! Jalal, retaining his spirit of hospitality to the last has given permission to Amer ki princess to host her Holi Party, BY way of his acceptance and whole hearted approval , he has even sent colors for her to play with !! Ah-ha..the Man who had snatched away all the colors from her life, now returns it manifold , bringing the colors back into her dreary life ,Significantly, the princess who had been disdainful so far ACCEPTS the colors back in her life and prepares to envelop herself with it.
## To be honest, I did wonder why Holi was chosen 6 months before its arrival when there is Diwali just round the corner , I never gave it further thought nor probed my 'wonder' and let it rest, It was while writing this post, that it clicked..Holi is always considered to be a festival of colors, right.. but Holi is also something else..Holi is also the festival of transistion.. Change of season!! from bleak, barren,misty winters to warm, clear, heady weather of summer /spring.. while winter denotes the end, Summer announces the beginning and Here we are getting our first inkling of the end of the isolation and distances between Jodha and Jalal.. The winter in their relationship will thaw gradually leading to the summer of attraction, hesitant affection and deep love .The connection , that bond already exists although the name given to it is hatred but just like a coin with 2 sides, so is the bond, flip the side and one shall see Love ..The time has come for flipping!
The episode also showcased the strong influence of religion on the administration of that era, how quick to take offense were the people of that age which makes the broad minded , all inclusive approach of Akbar all the more commendable .
Duly keyed and programmed by Maham Anga and the Mullah, a wrathful Jalal is unleashed on a contrite Jodha , Jalal who does not mince his words and is violent both in action and words , by upturning all the colors as well as informing her that he would be very pleased by deporting her from Agra, words that are meant to sear her heart and which it does , after delivering a stinging homily , and AFTER listening to her remorseful apology , Jalal leaves , leaving behind a chastened, sorrowful princess deep in thought.
##Once again a rich scene, the king is sent keyed up, quivering with rage , religious prejudice to the inner chambers of Jodha where a lots of unconventional things happen .. First, for a man who has come in towering rage , ready to vent his spleen, He stands quiet and contained until the servants remove themselves from vicinity ! Howsoever the enormity of crime, he DOES NOT subject Jodha to being humiliated in front of the servants like on previous occasion .
Like a cranky child who needs a physical outlet to cool his passions, he overthrows all the colors on his plate YET Jodha does not say a word nor does she look on haughtily or contemptuously , She understands her mistake and maintains a downcast demeanor, The unwarranted harshness on her husbands part (even after she owns up to her mistake and apologizes) is not treated with commensurate hatred rivaling her husband's .There is a realization on Jodha's part and quiet acceptance of his actions, Her only reaction if at it can be called a reaction is an ineffable feeling of sadness as she looks on the imprints of Jalal made on the colored floor . A vast and welcome change in Jodha's mien indeed.
Jalal , Livid and violent has spilled the colors but he has not realized yet that his shamsheer , the one which he swears by, lives by, the one which takes precedence even before his begums, the one always sheathed in black,lifeless has been smeared with the colors too , The colors of life. Jalal, The man without heart, a man who was content , Nay proud of not having any emotions in any cells of his body, A man who was like his shamsheer , cold, detached , isolated has begun to take his steps into the world of colors, of life.. His life has begun the transition from the gloomy desolate lonely life to a life filled with love, laughter,anger and other myriad emotions .. The change brought about by Jodha! His own Holi, his color, his love and eventually his life..
It reminds me of your posts during the HOLI week of IPK.
P.S can i use your idea for writing about the significance of any one festival for my daughter's school ?
You are most welcome to use it, Hun :)
Squirming..are you kidding me..Here you go..
(I hope posting about other serials is allowed in Dhwani..Can't help it though..this is one of my favorite reviews)
From the Redux Series -
Cat Among The Pigeons - March 14th
This Rabba Vey reminded me of the saying, " Let go of ur love, If it was truly ur's , then it will come back to u else that love never belonged to U" ... Arnav walks towards Khushi, a free spirited, fun loving Girl , who is dancing merrily hearkening the drums of heaven.. colors abound her life, gaiety marks her presence..Into this world of cheer enters ,Arnav Singh Raizada, he grabs at her hand, imprisoning her in one smooth move, clipping her wings, destroying all things she holds dear ... The colors are there but she is being held captive in a gilded cage .. She stands before him, her zest for life in temporary abeyance , the smile wiped of her innocent countenance ..when after a long pause, realizing his folly, Arnav lets Khushi go, takes a pace back..allows her , her freedom , gives her the space she craves , releases her from the prison.. Khushi is incredulous, the freedom does not sink in but when it does, ..she blooms, the dazzling smile comes back, Khushi who had been dancing in joy oblivious of Arnav NOW dances only for him , Her eyes fastened on his smiling visage, her glorious smile reserved only for him !!
I never used to comment then..hats off to you and all those who reviewed on Redux.

Hi Vandana, Thanks.Ggn_girl wrote:Super Post. Nice song to describe the current Jodha and Jalal situation. Will their love story take a MounaRagam turn. Will Jodha be the one to confess first ?? it will be interesting to see.Abavi wrote:Loved the holi, transistion point Tant girl!
Jodha's sad face reminded me of Revathi when she yearns for Mohan's word to ask her to stay back in Mouna raagam
This song is dedicated to Jodha!

Beautiful lyrics and magically rendered by SPB and my all time favorite movie. I think i saw that chemistry only in Arshi again.
Chemistry isnt a seldom seen thing in silver screen, magical couple come and go... That too in ManiRatnam movies, Chemistry between the lead pair is inevitable.
But when it comes to tele screen that is a rarity and that when a couple rendered chemistry which can surpass the ones that the silver screen provides, that is when the crew needs to be applauded in case of Arnav and Khushi.

Oh YES! Let it get all picaresque, I wouldnt mind at all... Infact I welcome it with both my hands and my two legs too...Tanthya wrote:There has to be subtle change not overtly visible but one that is felt than seen ..Abavi wrote:The brake inspectors would do their job, but the equation between these two should change.. I would smack him on the head if he goes gaga looking at her green joda... I want him to show some attitude bas.Tanthya wrote:The Boy is already smitten and has made several ovrtures , he is least likely to resist .. what may put the brakes or what will put the brakes will be intervention of either Ruqs or Maham or both in tandem ..Abavi wrote:Nor did Mohan kill Karthick...
I meant to say the part of the movie where the lady starts to warm up playing the role of the wife and starts to like her life at her hubby's place, the man remembers the first thing she wanted from him- a divorce and he pretends not to notice that the girl is giving him the clue with putting on his first gift, those anklets, and he gives her those papers start on her face...
When this tiger hunt is done, I wouldnt be surprised if Jo decided to wear a green joda and Ja pretends not to notice it when he asks her to pack her stuff and send her off to her maika..
I would love if the girl travels all the way to Amer and her patidev follows her for a visit to her maika, breaks his head to woo her and then bring her back. Do give him a reason to woo her, he needs to commit a mistake of letting her go... when she shows that she is ready to start "their" relationship... to make him commit that, he needs help, and Ruqs and MA would be ready to help...
Dont break my bubble tantwa... I am in dreamland
I think wife going away will come up later ..when Maham Anga connives and throws Jodha out but for now, they are going to Ajmer Sharif and the show has turned picaresque .. The first layers of prejudice may begin to wear thin in this journey ..
I shan't break the bubble, Vi Ponnu .. I think it will happen that way :)
So are we gonna voyage into that phase when Ruqs and MA would get vivid clues (if they havent already noticed) about Ja's pertinent attraction to Jo's presence or his absent minded self? and get angry and plot against her?
So there would be a series of plots atleast until MA succeeds, and by then JA would have traversed to a point where he is just a hop away from confessing his pheelingswa for his Jo begum... and then HEARTACHE!!! Me likey likey!
