F32:Humsafars | Evolution of Symbolisms

Post by --sumana13-- on 2014-09-27, 11:44

Humsafars or for that matter each and every show on Television wants to propagate concepts. Be it of love, social message, layers in a story or symbolism in scenes. Really! Now we bring you Symbolism that one would have seen in the first few episodes of the show and one in particular we would like to bring to you is about “exchange of Mugs”.

Sahir Azeem Chaudhary drinks black coffee (Okay for those who did not get that as yet, now know). While Arzoo Nausheen Khan drinks kadak chai. And what is the symbolism there in? Nothing. We are going to talk about the mugs. One holds a Red Mug while the other Green. Just like the signals, they say stay away or stop and of course green denotes go ahead. We really don’t want to go into a full blown discussion on symbolism here. The topic is evolution not what symbolisms were there in the scene. That is for you all to find out and us to know. 

The Reality of the scene.
The set up is getting ready. There is rain predicted. The Moon is lit (yeah it is called a 6k HMI). The lights are on. The shot is ready. The scene dialogues are just about written. Mint Fresh. Yes, they were written on the set with creative inputs of three people, the final draft was ready. Just about. In Triplicate. Two for the artists and one for the AD to check the lines during take. Deep words. Everyone on the set (Well, everyone creatively inclined which includes yours truly as well gushed over the words, the import of it all). The symbolism factory was churning out some candy floss that audience would marvel at.
Now, time for the other symbolism. The mugs. Yes. Two Mugs. At the Fashion Show, Tea and Coffee provided by the management. And they are green.

Stop Shoot.
“No!” says the creative producer (CP) and creative director (CD) in unison with a vehement agreement by the Director which sounded like a prayer answered. These won’t do. We have to pre-empt the audience. We have to zoom in on the cups before hand to deliberate on what will happen next, much before the girl absently picks up the cup and says, “Coffee?”
The set up people run helter-skelter.  Requirement : Two mugs of same type but different colours. All the mugs on the set are rounded up. Yes, it is a mission. One is black but the shape is not same. The other is Yellow even though the shape is same as the green it is rejected as in the low “moon light” the colours won’t be distinguishable. Think. Think. The creative team comes up with several ideas. Of course, all the mugs were brought in only to be rejected.
One says “Can we color one of the mugs with a permanent marker?”
“NO!” comes the answer from the CP.
Heads scratching, the assistant art director on the set is asked, “What paints do we have? Acrylic?”
“Sir, it won’t stay on the glazed china.”
Point noted.
More deliberation. Now the time has run to 25 minutes. It is 12 am. So break is called for, so that dinner can happen and search for the right material for the mug is found. For obvious reason, going to nearby shop is out (Yeah well, even if we don’t sleep, the rest of the world does have a time limit to working hours).

Back after the break. One smart set-up guy brings a red-gel paper that is used to cover a light.
“Now, we are talking,” says the CP and CD. While the mug is being doctored, the discussion ensues. Is the red colour right?
Of course, that will add symbolism. Voila. We found the perfect solution.
Bring it on.
The set guy goes ahead and creates magic. Everyone applauds.
The shoot is on.
Symbolism intact. Check.
The exchange of mugs plausible. Check.
The CP, CD give a nod to the Director who says, “Roll.”
Time is 1am.
We have the shots of the first take and then what you saw on screen.
Just a small example of how symbolisms are born.
Bravo to the team.
Moral of the story: Symbolisms are not created, they evolve.

Well we have travelled far in the serial duniyaa from kaphi with Karan to kaphi with symbolism.. My sadness knows no bounds....the bezubaan cups who were so important for paragraphs to be written we're not paid for taking the scene to the level beyond what the 6kHMi could.. And probably were discarded into one neglected corner after the masterpiece sequence was shot!!
No No No Hai Yeh zalim duniya :'( :'(
