Dialogue Male and Female of the Fortnight:
Female Dialogue :
Kaise bhool jao un saat phero ko, jho saat vachano ke saat liye the ,kaise bhool jaon us kumkum ko , jho aai ke na chahte hue bhi , unke haaton meri maang sajai gayi thi , kaise bhool jao mangalsutra ko ,agni ko, woh ek mahina jho maine unke saat...baba mere liye meri shaadi marriage certificate nahi thi, mere liye ek pavitra rishta tha... aur baba, rishte kabhi kaagas ke buniyad pe nahi bante, aur na hi mitathe hain - Archana
I absolutely love this dialogue! It is so simple, very honest and so pure. And what beats it all is that Archana said No to signing the divorce papers. But what this dialogue goes to show is that Archana really cared for Manav. And we cannot blame her for not trusting Manav. The important thing though, is that she respects Manav despite the complaints she has against him. I think I'm also so very happy about this dialogue because for the first time, she didn't go under the pressure of her family and stood up for herself. Looks like independence is already making her way through. Archana is already finding her own voice and that is such a refresher from the Archana who would quietly, yet unwillingly, succumb to any of her families demands. *SIGH* breath of fresh air ill say :-D
And you know what shravini, dada aur vahini, dono ek doosre ke liye hi bane hue hain, dono bilkul ek jaise hain , dono apne zarooraton se zyaada doosro ke barein mein sochte hain -- Sachin
Sachin! The guy never ceases to amaze me. One moment he is plotting with his mom to patao Shravini, and the next moment, he's the most caring, loving, considerate person you'll come across. We are definitely getting to see many shades of Sachin. But we all knew that besides the mavaali he can be, Sachin is a nice guy at heart. And everytime I hear him talk about his Dada and Vahini with so much pride and respect, I feel like showering him with jadoo ki jhappiyans! I hope he will forever be as supportive as he is towards his bhaya and bhabhi.
Star Male and Female of the Fortnight:
Star Female-Archana. This girl has gone thru a lot, but that hasn't pulled her down. She knows in her heart what is the truth, but at a time like this she needs to support her family...hopefully down the line the family will support Archu. Going to night school is a big enough deal, that Archu has also taken up a job. Manju was always putting Archu down for her lack of education and job, now Archu has shut her up by getting a job position that Vinod could've qualified for. One thing to say to Archu is stay strong and hold up your head high, but don't forget that one person who loves you more than anything.
Star Male-I would say Tarun because like a true friend he is ALWAYS there for Manav. Even though the actor changes in the show, the character remains the same...true and understanding. Tarun will help Manav achieve what he wants and hopefully he'll achieve Archu too.
ArMan Sequence of the Fortnight:
For quite a few weeks now, we have been totally deprived of ArMan scenes. And although we do end up having both Manav and Archana on screen at the same time, they are not the kind of scenes we expect. But still, there was one scene that stuck out to me as plain beautiful. It was the Mandir scene on Sankashti. Manav leaves Archana's mangalsutra at Ganpati Bappa's feet, leaving everything to fate. Moments later, Archana comes for darshan and the mangalsutra ends up in her thaali, going to prove that Manav and Archana are destined for each other. I just thought that was a brilliantly choreographed scene, so it definitely deserves its spot here :-D
Best Family Scene of the Fortnight:
Mr. Head Turner [Style Icon] of the Fortnight:
I wanted to give Manav this spot, but turns out, Sachin can be quite the charmer too! *Giggle* Sachin does a fabulous job pulling off the shabby look. He looks like a normal, lower middle class man in his minimal accessories, chapal's and dress shirts. But when he does dress up for a date with Shravani, then TAUBA, he looks even better. Sachin has been a contender for the spot for a while now, so I decided it's about time he makes the cut.
Ms. Head Turner [ Style Icon] of the Fortnight:
I'm not sure if it is because we have been focusing mainly on Archana now or what, but I only seem to notice Archana's clothes. And my, she keeps getting better with each scene. She just looks stunning in her saree's. The colors are perfect for her. And even if her pallu is not pleated as neatly as Manjusha's might, that only goes to show her simplicity. And I've always said that in Archana's simplicity lies her beauty. So without a doubt, Archana wins hands down. P.S --- I think this is three times in a row! *Giggle*
World of Archana and Manav:
Under the Stars
'1:30 am Saturday'
Sitting on her bed, head lying against the headboard Archana was reading the cutest romantic novel known to man. The way the character in the story says I love you to the girl just made Archana wonder if this was ever going to happen to her. Her dream guy was with her but it still felt incomplete. Manav was her boyfriend alright but he never said those three words that she's been yearning to hear from his mouth. They've been going out for more than a year and he still hasn't said anything to her. She couldn't help but wonder if he really loves her or not. "Oh well, If Manav loves me, then he'll say it sometime or another."
She was so engrossed in her book that she didn't notice the rock that was thrown at her window. 'thud' another rock was thrown and this time she looked up. She looked at the clock and thought "Who could it be at this time?" When there was another thud, she lost her patience and stood up to go to the balcony. When she opened the door and looked down, she saw was a black figure in the fog and it looked like he was holding some kind of a box. "Who are you? And what the hell are you doing outside my balcony?!" she whispered loud enough for only him to hear. "Arrey what who the hell are you?! You don't recognize your own boyfriend?"He replied back annoyed that she didn't recognize him. When she heard his voice, it seemed like the whole world just stopped'that there was no one else in the world except her and him. She recognized his voice in a flash and replied "Oh Manav tum! I'm so sorry; I thought it was some creep trying to get into my house. Waise tum yahan? Aur who bhi iss waqt?" she questioned.
"Do I need a reason to come and see you?" simple words such as this made her blush. 'If only you could say what I want you to say' she pondered to herself. "Why are you staring into space? Help me come up" Manav started climbing the pipe and eventually made it onto her balcony. She noticed that he was holding a basket and asked "What's in the basket Manav?" "Arrey, you like picnics right? So I thought why not have a picnic right now." "A picnic at midnight? Pagal ho gayo kya?" "There's no book that says picnics are meant to be held in the day right? Why does it matter when the picnic is as long as it's fun?" She knew it was a waste of time to argue with him, he's going to win one way or another. She just agreed with him. Manav and Archana set up the blanket and the food.
Both were leaning against the wall. Archana had her head on Manav's shoulder and his arm was around her. 'It's so peaceful na?" she said it as more of a statement than a question. Looking into the sky, Manav noticed that there was a shooting star. "Look! A shooting star! Close your eyes and make a wish sweetheart." both Archana and Manav closed their eyes. 'I wish he could say those three words I've been dying to hear' her wish was made. She wondered if her dream would ever come true.
~ A dream is a wish your heart makes ~
After cleaning up everything, Manav stood up to leave. He made his way back to the railings and started to climb down. Archana stood at the railings and watched as he climbed down. Halfway down the pipe though, Manav started climbing back up. A frown made it's way to her face and before she could ask him what he was doing, Manav shushed her and said " I just wanted to say 'I love you.' and with that said, he left a quick peck on her cheek and climbed down the pipe again. Stunned; that was her expression. Slowly she blushed and a smile appeared on her face. She looked up into the night and 'He said it! He finally said 'I love you' she happily skipped into the room and plopped onto the bed. Re-playing the moment over and over in her head Archana fell asleep with a serene smile on her face. Her wish had come true after all. ~
~ Have faith in your dream and someday
A Rainbow will come smiling through ~

JOKES of the Fortnight:
"A widow is a woman who stayed with her husband so long that he died."
Haila!! When I read this, I just fell on the floor laughing. The sentence has Savita written all over it!! The way she always yells and complains about everything,not to forget how she yells at her poor husband. I'm telling you, she's going to be the #1 cause of that man's death. He'll probably die of a freakin' heart stroke listening to her yelling non-stop!!
Two friends were in a restaurant chatting One says to her pal, "My Mother-in-Law is an angel Her friend replies, "You're lucky Mine is still alive."
Oh.M.Gee!! this was just hilarious! Once again...the joke is meant for Savita...I think mostly all jokes are to do with her torturing either her husband or Archana. That other friend that says "You're lucky" reminded me of Archana and her mother-in-law. Although Archana is too sweet to say that, I bet she would think this now that I think about it..I think Archana is too sweet to think this as well...I sure would say that if Savita was my mother-in-law. However, I don't think she'll be an angel when she dies..more like a devil or a demon if you ask me. She'll probably end up hauting Archana even after she dies! okay I went totally off topic there.
Review for Fortnight:
This last fortnight wasn't too bad actually. I know we've all been wanting ArMan's reunion, but the track was pretty alright nevertheless. Archana's education and employment track has definitely been a treat to watch, although most of us are wishing that they would move on with the track already. But like Satish said in one of the earlier episodes, education does not take anything away from you, it only gives'so Archana's education will play a huge part in her feeling independent. This job and education is like a slap in the face for Manjusha, Savita and EVERYONE else who degraded Archana for not having an education. We still have not figured much of Ashwin out yet'that track is also moving slowly'overall, a LOT happened, but it was somewhat of a slow fortnight. I'd rate the last fortnight a 7 on a scale of 10, only because, even though we've not had much of ArMan, the track is quite substantial.
Expectations for next Fortnight:
We've been seriously deprived of ArMan scenes. So I know all of us are wishing for a fabulous sequence between the two of them, so I hope the creative's will hear us out this time *not like they ever have :( *. Anywayss'..there are a couple of things that I expect from the weeks to come..I hope, for Varsha's good that Ashwin's true ulterior motives come out soon'if not, I'd really like to see Manav try and help Varsha realize what a mess she has gotten into'I'd like to see Varsha and Manav form a bond'Vaishali already seems like she's got a liking for her jeeju, but we've yet to see that side of Varsha'so I hope Varsha's feelings towards Manav changes if he plays a part in bringing out Ashwin's little white lie! And I think all of us would want to see both Archana and Manav be successful in their respective careers. I hope something good comes out of this for the both of them. Oh and I would LOVEE to see someone shut Savita up for a while'I think we've had way too many outbursts from her side, it's about time that someone shows her, her place'so I hope someone gets to that before we all get on her case!!!
