A Tim Burton Fan

I have tried to watch as many of Burton’s movied as I could, and I am an admirer of his direction!
His movies are a riot of senses. I don’t think I could have imagined Wonderland any more weird than he makes it to be in Alice in Wonderland. I wish Through the Looking Glass was also directed by him.
He takes the impossible, and gives us a wonderful, believable creation out of it. Yes I escape into the demonic world that is inhabited by Elizabeth Bonham Carter and the apt Johnny Depp. I didn’t as much mind the gore that was Fleet Street or Sweeny Todd as long as the imagination ran haywire.
Also, the hues! The dark, difficult times are in blues,greys, flinching between blacks and browns. The hopeful happy times are drenched in brightness of green, gold and as much as light as could enter the Earth on a hot summer day.
Edward Scissorhands could not have been in better hands.
Imagine my delight, when I watched the trailor of the new movie.

Releasing this September, I cannot wait to watch it. I have this belief that many of Burton’s movies celebrate peculiarity. It is a motif oft repeated, he embarks on bringing to life the glory of being ‘different’- perhaps an introvert, or an amazingly kind heart behind a formidable exterior. He gives people like me a chance to look into our eccentricities and be glad about them because that makes us unique.
I can be THAT Alice.

Saraswatichandra Episode 59 III

Meanwhile, I find my apprehension regarding Umesh coming true. There’s something sinister going on. We see him waiting for someone at a secluded place. Soon, two men arrive and we’re shown just one of these men. The man is annoyed that Umesh hasn’t been able to lay his hands on Kumari yet. They want her, anyhow it seems. I’ve got an inkling that the other man might be Kumari’s father.
Anyhow, at night when everyone has gone to sleep and Saras finds Kumud alone in the kitchen, he steals inside and closes both the doors when she notices him. She’s still angry. He tries to help her do the dishes but she shrugs away and starts folding the napkins instead. He tries to copy her movements (and Gautam Rode manages to convince the viewer that whatever he’s doing is spontaneous and natural.)
We’ve all been rooting for more romance and that did happen today when he tried to brush away the flour that had fallen on Kumud.
That,
in a poem. 😉

He asks her why she was intimidating the birds instead of talking to him. It was he who was late. She retorts back.
‘Late?
How could you be late when you didn’t even come?’
Saras tries to pacify her anger and I must say, both of them did a remarkable job today. Their expressions were true to the situation. Dugba arrives but starts to leave when Kumud asks her to pick up the paapads as they were dry. Saras sits down beside Kumud and tries to help but she just wouldn’t let him. He even tries to hold her hand playfully and she retaliates with such expression and agitation of hands that for a moment you forget they’re actors.
Irritated, she gets up.
‘Badi Ma, much of my time has already been wasted today. So I’m going. He will help you.’
She leaves.
We loved that funny exchange between Dugba and Saras just then.
She asks, ‘What happened to her?’
Saras just makes that innocent ‘I have no idea.’ expression and it left many of us sighing. In pure pleasure, ofcourse!

There’s something sinister going on in Kumari’s boyfriend’s mind. He meets two men at a secluded place and we’re shown the face of just one. He scolds Umesh demanding why he was taking so much time in bringing Kumari to them. I have an inkling that the other man is her father. Lets see!

Saraswatichandra Episode 59 I

The episode began with Kumud arriving at the tree, blushing in anticipation all over.
Ghuman stole the show with her vamp act and made quite a few of us wishing her dead. When she saw Saras leaving, she deliberately dropped a vase causing him to enter her room and then faked a headache brilliantly, keeping him involved so that he’d be late for the date. Meanwhile Kumud’s happiness turns into despair and she decides to go back home. I could relate to that feeling, actually.
And I simply loved whatever followed!
How innocently she vents her frustration talking to the pigeons and Saras hears her doing so. Did you notice that heart winning smile on his lips when she says, ‘Methi ka laddoo!’ ?
