IPK meets P&P(2)

Parallelism of Darcy and Arnav

Fitzwilliam Darcy, the lead hero of Jane Austen’s classic “Pride and Prejudice” has long been the template for creating a dark brooding romantic hero. Though Arnav’s characterization is not simply an adaptation of Darcy, there are some parallels he shares with the classic hero.

Of wealth and words

Both the characters are exceedingly rich and strikingly handsome but are socially inept(atleast at the beginning)

How to not make a terrible first impression

Attraction might be easy given their looks, but their love interests are repulsed/intimidated at the first meet.

Their conceited outlook makes them blind to reality and how people perceive them as they struggle with attraction/love and ego.

Conversation skills

Even though both the characters are very caring and protective of their loved ones and friends, they can’t make a conversation. They keep interactions brief(mostly just one-liners, seriously?!) even while courting and always end up wanting more.

With others they seem reclusive and just mumble courtesies to fill the void.

In love with your eyes 👀

This is almost the first feature both the heroes admire about their love interests. Maybe that’s why they speak volumes with their eyes and rarely have to use words.

Love is the best redemption ever

Darcy and Arnav’s characters seem to hinge on this. From the minute they fix on pursuing their love interest(even if rejected), they evaluate themselves and keep pushing to betterment in trying to be truly gentlemanly and learning how to love. That is their redemption arc.

They just can’t bear to see their lady love in distress. No, Never..

That’s all for now!

Thank you very much for your questions and apologies for the delayed reply!!! <3 I never intended not to answer, it’s just the life that happens. 

10: A movie you should love in theory but don’t.
I used to regard Lawrence of Arabia (1962) as one of the best films ever done. Like many of David Lean’s films, it deals with desires that don’t come true. This type of melancholy appeals to me. But after the second watch of Arabia I found it very boring. The story progressed far too slowly that I lost my interest in it. Sometimes, these kinds of multi-hour, majestic epoch movies have this effect. It’s a shame, because Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif are a fascinating pair. I still think, however, that the cinematography is one of the finest ones in film history. Especially the extreme long shots together with Maurice Jarre’s oriental music are breathtaking. I also love the roughness of the desert, the dust, the dirt, how people sweat under the burning sun, and the fundemental questions in order to survive. Hmm, maybe I should just rewatch the movie. :)

11: A movie you should hate in theory but adore.
This is a juicy question, like a forbidden pleasure. :) I’ve always regarded romantic comedies as the movies that are not worth spending time on, but I really enjoy Love Actually (2003) and Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001). I wonder if it’s because Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are both playing in them. XD

12: Three most romantic movie scenes.
This was one of the most difficult questions which you try to answer but your head is empty. In addition, I found it much easier to pick hot or touching scenes, and even in TV shows rather than movies. Finally, after a long consideration and browsing the bookshelf, here are my choices for very romantic scenes in both movies and TV series (sorry, couldn’t leave them out):
- Pride and Prejudice (1995): Darcy proposes to Elizabeth for the second (and last) time.

image

- Queer as Folk UK (1999-2000): Stuart wants to find out if he fancies Vince by asking him to dance at the wedding.

image

- Looking the Movie (2016): Patrick asks Richie if he wants to try to share their lives together.

*Big sigh*

15: A movie that unexpectedly freaked you out?
Well, all I can think about now is The Excorcist (1973). I had seen several Argento movies, which made me think that “older” movies can’t be that scary. As a result to this, I ended up spending two painful hours, tears in my eyes, watching how the poor girl’s desperate situation did not seem to end. The movie taught me that I should never underestimate horror movies.

Thanks again, I really enjoyed doing this! :)

The Movie Asks

I’ll never forget the one time a guy picked up the book I was reading to try and impress me. It happened to be pride and prejudice so when he read the first sentence he started lecturing me and feminism and how books like the one I was reading made women out to be slaves that were bought to be wives. Needless to say I never talked to him again after that. Talk about judging a book from the first sentence.

Georgiana Darcy’s Diary


image

By: Anna Elliott

Rate: 5/5

Synopsis: Mr. Darcy’s younger sister searches for her own happily-ever-after.


The year is 1814, and it’s springtime at Pemberley. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have married. But now a new romance is in the air, along with high fashion, elegant manners, scandal, deception, and the wonderful hope of a true and lasting love.


Shy Georgiana Darcy has been content to remain unmarried, living with her brother and his new bride. But Elizabeth and Darcy’s fairy-tale love reminds Georgiana daily that she has found no true love of her own. And perhaps never will, for she is convinced the one man she secretly cares for will never love her in return. Georgiana’s domineering aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has determined that Georgiana shall marry, and has a list of eligible bachelors in mind. But which of the suitors are sincere, and which are merely interested in Georgiana’s fortune? Georgiana must learn to trust her heart and rely on her courage, for she also faces the return of the man who could ruin her reputation and spoil a happy ending, just when it finally lies within her grasp.


Review:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a young lady of rank and property will have packs of money- or land-hungry suitors yapping around her heels like hounds after a fox.

As many of you (the 5 followers I have atm) know I have an intense love of Jane Austen. So when I got my hands on this book, I had to just finish. Georgiana is a sweet girl who is now super cautious about who she lets into her heart. She is accomplished, well read and very wealthy. Which is the problem. All her very eligible callers find her wealth to be her most appealing feature. This was a fun, pure and very funny story. I loved everything about it even the twist and love interest. Also its great to see more of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth.
