Even after all the rivers of time, distance, and bad blood that have flown between them, Aditha and Amar cannot fully move on. They are still willing to give everything up for the sake of love, for the woman they love. In the most stunning moment of Ponniyin Selvan: II, Aditha, and Nandini finally converse face-to-face. Nandini had called him to her chambers. Aditha tells her he will give up everything if she comes with her. He will sever his ties with his family. He will give away the kingdom. They will run away and start a life of their own. A similar conversation occurs in Dil Se.. when Moina starts living at Amar’s house on rent. Amar has not forgotten his feelings for her even though he is soon getting married to Preeti (Preity Zinta). At one particular moment, Moina goes to the terrace to call Amar, who grabs her and puts his earphones on her. He plays an old recorded conversation when they had spent a few days together in Leh and joked about starting a family. After the conversation ends, she removes the earphones, and Amar asks her to say yes once, and they will both go far away. They will leave everything. Nandini and Moina seem moved by this proposal to start life again, and they almost acquiesce. However, their moment of vulnerability soon passes, and they come back to reality. Nandini wants to see herself on the throne, she tells Aditha. She wants to live in a palace and enjoy the privilege of royalty. Moina also realizes the importance of her mission and returns to reality. It is too late for this now because har ishq ka ek waqt hota hai. It is also worth observing how similarly and spectacularly these two moments from the two films are shot. The camera focuses on the faces of the characters. When someone speaks, their half face is seen on the screen.
