Vinod started asking Saloma a lot of questions regarding her personal life, education and family as well as "the voices in her head."
,What does your mother do? What subjects did you take in school?
Saloma tells Vinod that she used to talk to the voices. Vinod convinces Saloma that "the voices" that she is hearing is "one of the symptoms of schrizophrenia" and that the voices are just figments of her imagination
Scene 2: Saloma hears voices
VINOD(on call) : Its just an imaginary
You never hear before.You never hear before. Why you never listen to me? I-I never bluff.Vinod.You say I bluff.But you never hear.I not mad. I never gila-gila talk to myself.
Saloma cuts Vinod off to convince him that these voices that she is hearing is not imaginary and that she is not crazy
Scene 3: Saloma convinces Vinod that the voices are real
I take medicine,so i very sleepy. My mother say don't take, but i take. You must take also ok?
Saloma(on call): Vinod, before we sleep we listen to class 95fm ok? We listen to the same song, then we sleep.
This adds to friendship development - Vinod was interested in getting to know Saloma better and went to the extent of calling her even after they spent the day together. This is further developed throughout the rest of the scenes
Scene 4: Radio
Vinod: Yah, maybe ill dedicate a song to you
This adds to the theme of Mental illness- Saloma's mental illness,Schizophrenia is being brought up by Vinod when Saloma says she hears voices-which is a common symptom that she faces. Hence, audience is exposed to what Saloma encounters This is also linked to the next scene where she demands that these voices are real and has trouble expressing her thoughts to Vinod.
Scene 5: Vinod is not a voice
The voice say i must bang my head on the wall. The voice say I must jump down. Vinod?You are not a voice right?
Saloma is in a state of panic and this affects her speech- She tends to rush and blurts out the things she say, which is again emphasizing on her mental illness symptoms(strange speech and a decreased ability to understand reality) Adds to her personality: Saloma is persistent and stubborn, she insisted that she was correct and pinpointed Vinod in not experiencing "the voices", She also took the pills that her mom told her not to.
Scene 5: Saloma goes to sleep
They both agree to sleep and Vinod tries to apologize but Saloma cuts him off again and diverts the attention to the radio.
Adds to theme of friendship-listening to the same song symbolizes them spending timetogether even though they are not at the same location. Vinod proposed to dedicating a song to Saloma - this shows that she is important to him and he wants to value and appreciate her through a song dedication.
I am not a voice Saloma. I'm Vinod. You listen to class95fm ok? I'll dedicate a special song to you.
Adds to their relationship- When Saloma is struggling to the voices, she decided to turn to Vinod for reassurance and this implies that unlike "the voices", Vinod keeps her in a state of calm and safe. Vinod character analysis- This wraps up Vinod's character on being caring
The voices return to haunt Saloma and she reassures with Vinod that he is not a voice
Adds to plot: Vinod becomes a routine in her daily life now that Vinod and her are friends He already made an impact on her within the first few days of their friendship- beginning of a blooming friendship
