"Connubiality" - A "retrospection" by Subhash K. Jha
The old-world charm of a yarn that weaves in and out of amorous arrangements within an arranged marriage, is tremendously aggrandized by the lead pair who go through the mellow motions of falling in love, in a spirit of artless adventure in an unexplored journey.Wow. What a paragraph from Mr. Jha's Vivaah review. A paragraph whose polysyllabic count is so high that it reeks of a Shift-F7 hack job (Hit Shift-F7 in MS Word to find what it does).
So if one reverse-engineers the above statement, it probably started life as something like:
The old-world charm of a /story/ that weaves in and out of /loving/ arrangements within an arranged marriage, is tremendously /increased/ by the lead pair who go through the /sweet/ motions of falling in love, in a spirit of /sincere/ adventure in an unexplored journey.(I don't know quite what to make of amorous and aggrandized!) Now, I may be doing Mr. Jha a disservice, but "aggrandize" and "artless" and "amorous" within range of each other? C'mon. Even GRE takers don't write like that.
And as a bonus for reading this post, let me quote the ending of the review:
Vivah predictably concludes with the couple's wedding and suhaag raat where the bridegroom tells his burnt wife, "Come let me do your dressing."Dayaa max!
Undressing is not what this film is about. Not even on the suhaag raat.
