The book Love is forever only if you are not married by Vikrant Khanna is a nice attempt to portray how love life and married life are different for the characters in question. Perhaps all the movies should do a sequel to all the love stories that they show on screen with a ‘they lived happily ever after’, that would give a new twist to the song and dance sequence that we are subjected to.
The story set in a background of the seas and pirates and the story telling of the author and also the story of his boss the captain makes for an interesting read. There are two tracks to it and how an aged mentor would retell the story so that the people get the best advise or learn from his experience.
In a way that you come to think of it the before marriage and after marriage episodes reveal the sorry state of individualistic thinking or that of the man woman up manship in a marriage.
The story in the seas with a narration and flash back could have been a bit faster. The story in a story of the captain interspersed with the pirates wandering the ship which has been captured.
The story has all the cinematic visualisation of the pre marriage courtships and how it s all very happy and the world means to me things happen to the couple be it a simple walk down the beach or having an ice cream.
The concept of having space and getting adjusted to in a matrimonial home and more so after a courtship of seven long years I think they never spoke about the families they were going to deal with or never expected to share space with. It looked a little odd given that it was going to happen. Anyways to each his own and that’s how probably it was meant to be.
You will see how they change ways after knowing what is love and how they should have treated it.
There is a nice twist in the end though the Captain’s story was very sad and probably its nature’s way to punish true lovers.
