Mad at me, but still willing to help, having sensed that my blog views were way way down over the past few days, he provided me with content. See, even when we are in a fight, he still cares.
Trailer!!!!!!!! Nothing really new here (unless I am missing something in the subtitles, tell me if I am!). Shahrukh is a tour guide in Europe who is kind of bored with his life but doesn’t know how to change it. Anushka bursts in on him like a breath of fresh air and drags him along on her impossible quest. They have adventures.
The only thing that is “new” is a couple of moments that give an ever so slight shading to their relationship. We knew Shahrukh would fall in love with Anushka, no duh. But the way he looks at her makes it seem like it isn’t just a kind of light wistful love, but something that gets deeper and agonizing inside fairly quickly. And that he kind of acts on it maybe? Some of his expressions seem like they are directed at her, like he is waiting for her to respond to it.
And Anushka maybe definitely feels the same way? We’ve been debating if it will be a wistful “she made me a better man and then went her own way” kind of romance, and it still could be, this might just be clever edit to the trailer and all of those doubtful conflicted looks she is throwing at him are just guilt over his feelings that she doesn’t reciprocate, not guilt because she DOES reciprocate. But at least this trailer is telling the story of “Opposites thrown together, lonely man falls in intensely in love and goes after her, wears her down in spite of herself, reunion in the Punjab.” Also, that leather jacket shot with him calling out her name at the end, TOTAL DDLJ homage, right? Or supposed to make us think it is a DDLJ homage?
