Dialogue Male and Female of the Fortnight
This fortnight we had somewhat of a shortcoming in dialogues. Although we could have done with some better dialogues, we did get some good ones. Here's our pick for dialogue of the fortnight.
Archana bohut achi ladki hain, chirag lekar doondane par bhi aisi ladki nahi milegi...is ghar mein kushiya lati thi voh...apne is ghar ko swarg bana deti ti voh..manav..tune usse jaane kyun diya? - Damodar
This was just the saddest scene. Watching Damodar so heartbroken was so sad. Everyone in the family knows that Archana is the perfect girl for Manav, and to have Damodar just reaffirm it in front of Manav was so sweet. Damodar is right, that house will never have a daughter in law like Archana. As good as Shravini is, even she may fall short of the expectations. Oh and can I say, it is SO good to have Damodar back! His wit combined with Savita's is hilariously funny to watch. Anyway, the fact remains that this was a good dialogue... Damodar considers Archana his own daughter, and the seperation has been proving tough for him too.
The moment I heard Archana say those dialogues to Satish, i jumped with joy. Because we honestly have had enough of the rona-dhona and the self-pity. We would really like for her to catch a hold of herself, and do the things she needs to do... become someone in this cruel world. It is time that Archana starts focusing on her self for once... she has been so selfless, she needs to take some time out for herlself. And this is a great start. She can go so many places with that kind of attitude! Kudos Archana, kudos!
Star Male and Female of the Fortnight.
Star Male-Satish may not be liked currently in the show, but this man has proved to be a supporter of Archu, to say the least. He has learned the truth and has put the past behind him and shown that he is a man of substance. Satish takes the cake for being understanding and helpful.
Star Female-I always believed Varsha would realize her priorities once in life. I applaud her for coming back to the house and for doing what she is currently, helping out the family and being there for them on an emotional level. Kudos to Varsha for being strong after all that has happened.
ArMan Sequence of the Fortnight
Well, if you think about it in the literel sense, then we did not have an ArMan sequence this fortnight.. which is bad considering that a fortnight is two weeks and we havent even had ONE ArMan sequence~ they HAVE to bring them back together soon. How long has this seperation gone on? SIGH! i'm growing old waiting for these two to unite! *Ahem-- got carried away* The point is, even if we didnt have ArMan together and sharing the same screen space, we did have a slight, semi ArMan moment. And even though Archana was not present physically in this scene, she kind of was. The scene I am talking about is when Varsha comes to talk to Manav, and she asks him if he still loves Archana... and Manav replies with, "main Archana se aaj bhi bohut pyaar karta hoon, voh meri zindagi hain, sab kuch hain meri, meri jeene ki pehli, aur meri jeene ki akhri vajah bhi vahi hain...Varsha maine aaj tak zindagi mein itna pyaar kisi se nahi ki jitna main archana se karta hoon" *SIGH* blush~! Aye haye, how romantic! Ofcourse we all know that Manav and Archana still love each other, there is no doubt about that, but after so long, just to hear Manav say that was brilliant. And when I said Archana was present in this scene, I meant she was present through Manav. Together they are one, you can almost feel their love. I thought it was such a good scene.. the dialogues were perfect. The soulful look in Manav's eyes was better! Everything just worked perfectly!
Best Family Scene of the Fortnight
Family Scene-This has to be between Varsha and Archu where they both discuss how their roles have reversed. It's a simple moment, but the way Aayi looks on to both of her daughters shows that strong mother-daughter and sister-sister bond. It shows how much, regardless what happens in life, they are there for each other and they understand each other.

Ms. Head Turner [ Style Icon] of the Fortnight
Archana, as always, looks good, so she needs no special mention. But the two ladies who stood out this week were Varsha and Shravini. Shravini's outfits are mostly simple, nothing over the top and she especially looked good in that black salwar. Very every-day like clothing, but she definitely pulled it off with style. And now that she is back in her salwar suits, Varsha looks absolutely pretty in those. But let's not forget that she has been pulling of the "kurti" look very well so far, so she deserves a special mention this fortnight.
World of Archana and Manav
For All Eternity...
~New York City~
Central Park; the most peaceful and beautiful place in New York. Resting along the shore, it was a place where people of all sorts came to exercise, relax, and forget everything else. Among those in the park was Manav, sitting on a rock by the shore, staring at the descending sun. Unlike everyone else, Manav came here to remember something, or rather remember someone.
-Walking down the streets of Nothingville
Where our love was young and free
I cant believe just what an empty place
It has come to be
I would give my life away
If it could only be the same-
'Her favorite place' he thought and sighed.
From the outside, Manav looked like any other normal man; tall, fair-skinned, and handsome. But on the inside, it was as though a storm was brewing in his heart, sadness overtook his soul, his heart wanted to cry out but his mind wasn't letting him. His eyes; it's like they were always in search of someone. 'It's not right, she never wanted me to cry, and she wanted me to be happy.' A faint smile appeared on his face. He didn't smile because he wanted to, but because she wanted him to. His mind drifted back to that day two years ago; the day that changed everything'for the worse.
-NY City Central hospital-
"Mujhse vaada karo kit um kabhi udaas nahi hoge." Every word was becoming hard for her to say, the pain clearly visible in her almond shaped eyes. Manav sat next to his wife, his love, his jaan and stared at her pained face. How she's changed in the past month, her face always happy and smiling was now blank; nothing but pain and sadness. How he wanted to ease her pain and make her happy again. Being in the last stage of cancer, her condition had reached to a point where there's no cure. Nothing could be done now but pray. And pray he did. He prayed to the one above to send her pain to him. Give her his life. Do anything to make her happy again.
"Promise me that you'll take care of yourself and you'll try to move on." He made the promise, because this was the first time she had asked for something. He couldn't refuse her her first request. Even though he agreed, he knew that he would never be able to move on, no one could ever replace her. No one can replace his life.
He took her hand into his and flinched. There was an IV going into the vein on her palm. Her usual soft hands were crinkled and dry. He requested God to let her stay with him, or make him go with her; to keep them together. Forever. An eerie silence filled the room. Neither spoke but both conveyed everything; through the heart.
Archana shivered. It was time. She was trying to stay awake; trying with all her might to stay with him. She made a promise to stay with him forever, now she was about to break it. This wasn't about her anymore, it was about him. Archana had to stay with him; she knew that he wouldn't move on, knew how much he loved her. First time in her life, she wished that she hadn't met him. If she hadn't married him, he wouldn't have to go through all this pain.
She squeezed his hand. In a quiet whisper, she said "I Love You" and closed her eyes. A silent tear escaped his eye. It was as though their whole life went through his mind in a sort of a timeline; their wedding, their fights, all of the moments that meant the life to them. Placing a soft kiss on her forehead, he replied "I love you too jaan and I always will." He needed to go, to get away, go to a place where she still lived; Central Park. He left but his life'it stayed.
Manav hadn't noticed when but he was crying. He was finally letting it all out, the pain, the anger, and the frustration. He was finally responding; he felt again. He closed his eyes and remembered her face. She always felt at ease when she came to the park. This was her place; her getaway. His mind made a picture of a petite girl running in the grass; laughing. 'Archana' sighing one last time, he got up and started jogging again. Two years and nothing's different, he was still breathing, smiling and responding. What would be different if Archana would have been alive? His smile would have reached his eyes. He would have been alive.
-If only you could see the tears in
The world you left behind
If only you could heal my heart
Just one more time
Even when I close my eyes
There's an image of your face
And once again I come to realize
You're a loss I can't replace-
--( Soledad; Westlife)'

JOKES of the Fortnight.
Hahaha! This cartoon sums up everything we have been saying for the past 6 months or more. This mother in law really IS of no use! And *SIGH* the prospect of being able to recycle Savita is so exciting! Haha! Oh man, how much fun would it be to remanufacture Savita into an entirely new product? Lol, this cartoon just had us rolling on the floor with laughter! *giggle*
Review for Fortnight
Finally .....the story is regaining its lost ground ...thanx to varsha ...she is one heck of a person ...maybe the kind manav deserves ....i think the creatives have put more effort into her character than probably the lead- archana (the less i say abt her the better it is ...she has never managed to impress me with what she does).So some relief for manav as he isnt alone in the battle anymore and has found a very able ally in varsha , but the question that comes to my mind is that ...what kind of a pavitra rishta is this between the leads that a third person is fighting for their relationship ,clearing out the misunderstandings while the two of them do nothing for it ....except believe what ever is thrown at them .
Not totally satisfied but then beggars cant be choosers really ...for all atleast the story is moving forward and i seriously hope that the MAR trio is uncovered soon and that Manjusha is thrown out of the house..... cant expect arman to do that ..so my hopes rest on varsha and now that satish is willing to help i do really hope the truth comes out soon.
Rating for the fortnight -3/5
Expectations for next Fortnight
Last fortnight was not too bad. I know we all wanted a lot more from it, but the track is definitely heading somewhere'With Varsha back home and all for ArMan, I have hope. So, Id really like to see Varsha step it up a notch and fight for her thai and jeeju..I really do hope that Varsha will be successful in bringing Manav and Archana back together..and by the looks of it, Varsha just might make that possible. Speaking of Varsha, I hope she finds a new job, with a better institution and a better boss than her previous work place. Im sure we'd all like to see Varsha successful and finally stand on her own feet and fight the bad world. And for the past few days, Ive seen a couple of posts on Satish and Varsha'hmm..now that they've been brought up, I do think they'll look quite nice together..So we'd like to see something brewing between Satish and Varsha, so Satish can leave our Archana for Manav :D And also, since Damodarji is back, we'd LOVE to see him bring Savita out in the open..we've had way too much of this woman's nautanki's and it would be great to see her true colors shown' since Damodarji already feels that someone was behind ArMan's split, it would be SWEETT for him to khol Savita's bhol.
