I liked today's epi for moving the story further, the choreography and the dance itself, GC/DD's performances '. And slowing giving shape to Arjun's role.
Post Arjun saving Dadi
Maan n Dadi are surprised. More so when they find out Arjun is the infamous EM ka MD.
A couple of things were cleared today. Arjun did not know NE was Maan's sister. Arjun did not know he was planning MSK's wedding. Then why did he buy the EM company ? For a foothold in the city ? How is he planning on ruining MSK per the I-F article ?
I knew Dadi would feel obligated to Arjun for saving her life. Also, Maan would too. But am glad to see that he is able to differentiate with a clear mind what is more important'obviously Geet's happiness'. Mein nahi chahta ki kisi bhi wajeh se Geet ki khushiyon mein kami ho.
NE- Geet convo
Liked how Geet said 'Maan ki behen' instead of Maan Sir ki behen.
Complete, total immaturity from NE. Confronting Geet without knowing the full facts. Blaming her for what ' dividing the family? Heck, NE did not even make an attempt to find out the truth b4 she blasted off. NE's gonna eat crow when she finds out the truth. Just listen to her dialogues. I want to see her eat crow'.haan !
- Dev bhai bhi parivar ka hissa, my bro, Maan's bro..then why is gayab from wedding.
- Why did Maan remove his name from the invitation card?
- What have u done that both my bros are separated ?
- What is it that the entire office knows, but I don't
- What game have u played
- Didn u feel ashamed breaking my family
- That's why u r alone, no family with u coz u borke my family
- Will u thorw me out too?
- Agar mujhe pataa hota ke tumne mere ghar ko aise tod diya hai mein kabhi wapas hi nahin aati.
- Ur silence makes u guilty of breaking my family.
MSK notices a weepy NE passing by but is waylaid by the servant with Dadi' msg ' c ome to the outhouse'NOW
@the outhouse Maan notices Geet walking down the stairs with Dadi lost in thot. Maan's busy trying to read Geet. Logical questions re wedding planner n choreographer. At least Dadi okays the change.
I'm so glad to see MSK still trying to figure out Geet's state of mind. At least Maan is upfront abt why he left her but Geet is not yet ready to confess but talking in riddles.
- Zindagi ke barein mein soch rahi thi
- Kab tak yeh utaar chadaav aate rahenge
- Kab tak yun dar dar ke zindagi jeena padegi
- Kab badlegi yeh zindagi
Geet whats wrong with u 'talking in riddles ? Ah, she deflects the convo'but Maan does that too'he he. Answers a riddle with more riddles.
- Mein itni nazook nahi
- Meine bhi zindagi dekhi hai, kathinaaiyaan sahi hai
- Mein aapki honewali biwi hoon, koi choti bachchi nahi
More proof for Maan that something is seriously wrong.
Maan tries to convey his support via his touch in the dance steps but Geet is too internally focused. So the tryout is a disaster.
More riddles -
- Mein apni taqdir accept kar chuki hoon, agar kismet ko yahi chahiye to yahi sahi. Pehle bhi rishton ko toot te hue dekha hai meine. Aur yeh rishte ko bhi toot te hue dekh loongi.
Now if u were in Maan's shoes how wud u think'what rishta is Geet referring to? But I must commend him for not panicking and flipping at this point ' but still seeking answers.
Geet walks away but can't resist the pull she feels towards Maan. Maan is not letting her go without finding the meaning behind her statements either. If not in words then he's trying to make her explain via dance. Notice how she is subtlely resisting to answer'
Gosh the dance itself is an entire Maaneet convo'. has every emotion. Must really commend the choreographer , Nissar, Gurmeet and Drashti for this scene. It has
- Questions - what's wrong Geet ?
- Talk to me Geet
- Possessiveness by Maan
- Convincing her to open up
- Resistance by Geet ' the way she resists and tries to break away'the way she pushes back his hand
- Despair - Maan at this point does not know how to break that barrier
- Realization ' Geet rushing back to Maan and placing his hands on her waist and continiuing the dance
- Love & Togetherness' in the hug from the back as though Maan's telling her no matter how hard I'm here for u'we will face it together
- Pain - Geet remembers that he is her world and that's when she comes back into his arms and tries to convey her feelings, her pain
- Surrender - Geet melting into his arms and bursting in tears'releasing her pain
- U r my world - The final hug - Maan at this point is reading, sensing her thouts and emotions like crazy'knowing she needs to be comforted. Notice Maan does not close his eyes coz his mind is whirring like crazy trying to connect the dots.
Wow ! Mind blowing performances by GC/DD !
Loved the way Maan picks her up and carries her to the chair, sitting down with her on his lap. Asking her if she remembers the last time they sat together like this.
Why do we spend time fighting ? No MU'did u forget?
That's when she confesses that she wasn't talking about them. I could feel Maan going PHEEWWW ! Good she's not all in a tizzy about Maaneet splitting. Just fighting internally. She can't bear to see him alone (separated from his family bcoz of her)
Tab Maan ke dimaag ki batti jalti hai and he is able to connect the dots between NE and Geet.
Precap ' Arjun comes to KH' finds Geet lost in thot. Asks her something wrong?.Geet hastily wipes her tears and says no, and asks him who is he here to meet. Arjun has an enigmatic expression on his face
Nissar, Barry, CVs - fabulous job ! Loved the continuation in the story and the interesting turns. Arjun's character seems to be taking shape.
Arjun - curious to see how you shape up.
Gurmeet, Drashti - Fantabulous performances. The pain and the passion in the dance was something to die for !
Drashti - U looked dreamyyyyy in that saree !!!
********** Destruct/Construct - Plot Line – Arjun **********
What do we know about Arjun so far?
NT's younger bro
Avid risk taker, calm in the face of a challenge, patient unlike his sister, supposedly an angry young man but knows how to use it productively
Drifter – NT is from Canada, but when she meets Arjun she mentions Malaysia…besides his stop at the kick-boxing ring
I want to base my plot on the assumption that Arjun knows Geet….from HP. How ? Read the background.
Arjun is an avid traveler, an outdoorsman. Unlike Maan, he's into meeting new people, seeing new places. Being a Canadian, he ventures into backpacking in India and ends up in HP. He was probably who NT called for advice on where to buy land (for her fake NRI marriage heist). That's how Dev/NT also end up in HP.
So while backpacking in HP, Arjun came into contact with the village folk. He was introduced to the Handas thru some common village friends. He was probably closer in age to Brij but did not see eye to eye with him due to Brij's jaded views. He'd met Brij in a kick-boxing ring…HP ishtyle. When he met the Handas, he was drawn to Geet - her love for life, her enthusiasm, her positivity in the midst of a stifling home atmosphere of female inequality. Both had struck a friendship…nothing romantic. Geet considered him to be Brij's friend. But her persona had made a huge impact on Arjun…so much so that Arjun was going to stop by HP again in the near future when she was a little older, hoping to meet Geet again. He had spent some precious days with her and her family surrounded by her siblings, ragging her. Since she was so young he was not vocal about his feelings. Besides he was a drifter. Arjun then moved out of HP, bitten once again by the travel bug, about the time Dev/NT descended on it and so was unaware of what happened to Geet.
Fast forward to the present
Arjun in Delhi to answer an SOS from his sister. He has seen the anger and thirst for revenge in her. Whatever his personal opinion about the whole issues, he wants to be there for her and support her in her endeavor. He cannot depend on his sister for his livelihood and so he decides to setup camp by buying an EM company for his daily bread and butter.
First of all he needs to douse the flames of the fire ignited by NT. So he waves a white flag and enters the KC domain with an offer – If the Khuranas take back the legal cases against NT, he will send her back to Canada.
Arjun's plan is to bankrupt MSK. To achieve this he has to test the waters and spread his net. He first bumps into NE in the KC parking lot but does not connect her to the Khuranas. A hot blooded male like him is taken by her attitude and probably by her looks.
How can Arjun bankrupt/ruin MSK? Well, the guys getting married … so lets play the role of a wedding planner by buying the best EM company in town. And so the Khurana wedding account walks into the trap in the form of NE. I seriously doubt Arjun did not know that NE was related to MSK. He has to know. But he is distracted by his attraction to her … and probably the fact that she is a dumb belle…all the more convenient for him to wiggle into the Khurana's inner circle. NT is a pariah, Dev is nowhere to be found. So NE it is.
Another Khurana that caught his attention was Dadi. She was the first one to step forward and accept his truce. Now should he take advantage of a poor old woman. In normal circumstances maybe he wouldn't have…but when he has to choose between NT and anyone else…heck, he'd take advantage of that 'anyone' else. Fate threw that opportunity in his lap in the form of that falling plumbing and Dadi standing right beneath it.
So now he has two things in his favor – NE's grudging acceptance of him as a wedding planner and Dadi. He was pretty sure Dadi was MSK's weakness … until MSK in on to his game of EM and sacks him since he does not want Geet to be unhappy.
Geet. The name sounds familiar. But he is not able to put his finger on it. Never mind that. Arjun may just have found MSK's weakness….Geet. But he has to meet her to be able to strategise his next move.
And so like a true risk taker he decides to enter the lion's den – the Khurana Mansion. His excuse, well he can use a few – Return the file Maan gave him, meet Anwesha , try to get back the contract, check on Dadi's health after the incident. But his overarching need is to find out more about Maan's bride.
And so he enter's the den…and finds a beautifully dressed maiden, in the front room, quietly shedding tears. He is enamoured by the scene. Someone dressed so nicely can only be the would-be bride. What could be so wrong in this beautiful house that could have brought her to tears? And so he asks hers. She is startled at the sound of his voice, not knowing that she has company, turns around.
Arjun catches his breath….at the simple beauty of this woman….and something else. Time seems to stand still… could it be that …. no, impossible…this is Delhi, not HP…. he shrugs off the thought. But then she asks, R u here to meet someone ? That voice, though somewhat pre-occupied, can only belong to ... Geet Handa. As he'd imagined, she'd bloomed into a beauty ! Wait a minute, what was she doing here in this attire ? Maan had talked about his bride, Geet. Could it be that….oh no ! Good lord ! Geet Handa is Maan's would-be bride …the man he'd come to destroy!
Arjun had come to the mansion to find out Maan's weakness…and in the process met his own.
Arjun's kashmakash – from an avenging angel to a man torn between his loyalties
Arjun will be torn between giving justice to NT versus bringing down Maan which will definitely hurt Geet. His blood boils at the injustice meted out to NT. He must focus on that. He must ruin Maan. Geet is his weakness…so he can hurt Maan by hurting Geet. He must not let his feelings for Geet make him weak. How can he hurt Geet ? What has she done to deserve this ? No, he cannot use Geet as his pawn. Maybe, NE. NE is impulsive, with an attitude but….not a bad person. And Dadi, she seems to be such a sweet person…sorta reminds me of my own. Gosh, how did he get into this mess ? A clear thinker like him, needs his wits around….not tethered to emotions. He has to remember NT is the innocent victim in this ….or isn't she? Geet cannot be the same person as painted by NT. And, where's Dev in all this ? Have to track him down to get some answers as a bro-in-law. Arjun entered the scene to find Maan's weakness and ruin him but is swept away by his own weakness – Geet.
