The smouldering intensity in his eyes
the supreme confidence in his gait
the arrogance of his manner
his boldness and his swagger
his no-nonsense attitude
his courage and fortitude
his principles and his ethics
he will always stand by what is right
For daadi his respect and affection
His love will be so overwhelming
It could lead to suffocation
But with his love will come his passion
He is also capable of incredible compassion
He is stubborn to a fault
He wants everything his own way
He thinks he is god's gift to humankind
He never listens to what anyone else to say
When hurt he will lash out like an animal in pain
and treat the person who hurt him with contempt and disdain
even though at times the man behaves like a savage
All this comes wrapped in a good looking package
Beneath the superior attitude lies a deep seated need
A need to be needed for himself indeed
He is not a man without weaknesses
He is a man scarred by his past
But when a woman heals these deep wounds
His capacity for love is vast
His is a love that will stand the test of time
His is a love that is deep his is a love that will last.
CVs take a bow . Today's episode rocked. We finally have the semblance of a storyline. Wooohoo ......but again we ONLY HAVE THE SEMBLANCE OF A STORYLINE .....YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD TO MAKE THIS A REALITY .....NO LAZINESS HAAN
I loved today's episode and there was just one cloud on the horizon and that is the girl playing NE ....lord that girl cannot act and is destroying the effect of some really good scenes. The scene where Maan told her what Dev did she had no expression on her face to express how horrible a deed her other brother had done ......I can live with the character but do one of two things
a) change the actress
b) send the actress to acting boot camp
Loved several things about the episode so I am going to list them out scenewise
1) Maan explanation of what Dev did to Geet was to the point and not overly dramatic. I especially liked his little demonstration to make Annie understand how Dev destroyed Geet's life and how Geet is pregnant with Dev's child. I feel he should have told her that Geet's family tried to kill her. I also noticed that he told her nothing about NT's role in the whole scheme. Whether this was done on purpose or just an oversight is something only time will tell. Nikuj killed the esssence of the scene and she was so unconvincing when she was being penitent. GC tried hard and only his efforts made the scene passable.
2) Loved the Arjun-Geet scene. Arjun is a very intriguing character who seems very balanced. He sees Geet unhappy and rues that anyone she tries to come close to leaves her - family, friends and now maybe the man she loves. Arjun tries to help her by advising her to look to the future and stop living in the past. He goes into philosopher mode and explains to her that just like there are 12 months in a year which are different from each other, how can she assume that her future will be the same as her past. Very good and sane advice. I like the dude.
This is just a feeling but I somehow think he will befriend Geet to try and get close to her and hence gain leverage on Maan . He will also try to make her an ally in wooing NE. In the process he will see her great personality, her helpful nature, her struggles and most of all her inner goodness. I want Geet to let something slip to him about her story and how she loves Maan and I want Arjun to start respecting Maan for saving Geet's life. This will start making him question what NT told him. Why do I also feel that Arjun may save her life at some point and play a huge role in the wedding? ....will circumstances conspire to ensure he winds up doing the kanyadaan? .....if he does then it will put him in a very difficult position. .....me liking this possible kashmakash in Arjun's mind a lot .....I would really like to see this track.
I want Arjun to be trapped in a web of his own making......he will start feeling guilty taking advantage of such a nice girl especially someone who is so warm hearted and caring as Geet and also someone who has suffered so much in life. I want Geet to take care of him - like maybe he gets hurt and she bandages him, maybe he is hungry and she gives him food, he is tired and she asks him to rest things like that. She treats him well. I have a feeling Arjun like Maan had had a bad childhood which is why he is the way he is.
A scene like this would be great. The Khuranas are finishing lunch/dinner when Arjun comes in. He has some work and says he will come later. Geet notices that he looks tired and asks if he has had lunch/dinner and Arjun says he is too busy. Geet tells him to sit down. Arjun protests and Geet tells him that if he does not sit down she will fire him and asks Daadima to help. Against his wishes Arjun is seated at the table with the Khuranas and Geet serves him food. Maan is unhappy and leaves. NE and Daadi also have to leave. Geet says "no one should eat alone" and stays with him until he finishes. He starts thinking about how she is so nice and the food goes down the wrong way. He starts coughing and Geet runs to get him water and pats his head and tells him to eat slowly. You can show Arjun thinking about how long it has been since someone actually took care of him that way.
3) The scene where NE comes to apologize to Geet with the office people and band baaja. Thanks for not making Maan dance ....we appreciate it . So all the girls are from Geet's side and all the boys from Maan's side. And Geet tells NE that she is her sister....so NE is now doing gatbandhan for sure . NE confesses Maan planned the whole thing and Maaneet exchange a look.
4) Arjun ka drama and hungama very very effective ji. I loved how Geet told Maan that she is sure he had made the right decision but she would like to know the reason. Maan reveals that Arjun is NT's brother. Geet says that she would like to give him a chance because NT's sins should not be visited upon her sibling just like Dev's sins should not be visited upon Maan. Daadima adds her two cents and Maan agrees but makes his displeasure clear. He also lets Arjun know that he is watching him. I loved this scene. Geet's innocence is going to be Arjun's downfall. He is going to be swept up in her magic and start questioning what he set out to do. PLEASE MAKE MAAN KEEP SUSPECTING ARJUN TILL THE BITTER END. MAAN MUST NEVER NEVER TRUST ARJUN NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE OTHERS COMPEL HIM.
Finally a word about the TRPs. As long as your writers do their job and keep the flow up, you have nothing to worry about. Just make sure you do not mess up the wedding because then everyone will be out for your blood.

Kudos to the CVs. Today's epi progressed the storyline by leaps and bounds … no beating round the bush, no dragging of the scene…straight and to the point…whether it is Maan's convo with NE, Geet-Arjun first meeting or Geet's logic to keep Arjun as the wedding planner. An intellectually mouth watering episode…with superb acting by GC, DD and Arjun, super dialogues, execution and storyline.
The CVs seem to have completed their gestation period and r burning rubber ….yeah. We got an inkling yesterday with Maan calling Arjun a spade, joining the dots between Geet and NE as the root cause of Geet's distress.
Maannie by the pool
Maan finds NE by the pool…in tears and comes straight to point.
NE, as usual, jumps to conclusion and blurts out in a similar way she did with Geet. Maan tries to stop her but she is on a roll….self-pity….leading upto 'I hate her.'
Enuff is enuff…Maan takes the ropes in his hand and uses a unique, effective way to drive his point home.
Let's play ur childhood game of hide-n-seek. Maan's strategy is two-fold…
- first, he wants to calm her down to the point that she can think straight
- second, drive the point home in the way she can understand
What better way than to lead her on that path with something from their childhood ? Becoz more than us, Maan knows his sister…beneath that immature attitude lies a good heart and a sharp brain. Brilliant move !
He lets her lose until she is abt to fall into the pool. The dialogue that ensues is enlightening…
MSK - See u were abt to fall in
NE - No bro, I wudnt
MSK - Why?
NE - Coz u r here…with u here nothing can happen to me. I trust u more than my life.
…and then WHAM !
MSK - And this is the same trust Geet had in Dev. But Dev not only broke her trust but destroyed her life.
NE - What r u saying bro ? Dev n Geet ….
MSK - …Ki shaadi hui thi …Even tho he was married, for Geet money he falsely married her, showed her dreams n made promises. Just one day after the wedding, he ran away…and today Geet Dev ke bachche ki maa banne wali hai.
NE is dumbfounded …Honestly Nikunj should have done a better job with her expressions. She totally diluted the importance of this scene with her below par expressions.
NE - I cant believe my own bro did something like this….n without even knowing the truth, I said so many things to Geet…and she took it all in quietly without saying a word in defense. I made a huge mistake…I must ask her forgiveness.
MSK - NE just saying sorry is not enuff…I have a better idea. Who better to know Geet's frame of mind than her Maan J
Geet-Arjun – peheli mulaakaat – extremely well done
I was always curious how this first meeting wud take place between these two…and I must say I'm not disappointed.
Geet looking pensive, tearful, forlorn … lost in thought. Arjun walks in with file and notices her. Does he not know that she is the bride ? I doubt it.
Curious he steps closer and introduces himself. Geet does not hear me. Arjun continues saying, what's wrong u seem worried. Geet wakes up from her reverie, stands up and hastily wipes her tears.
Arjun handles the situation very well…find a damsel in distress, calms her down to open up to a stranger. Some super dialogues from Barry….saving it for another day. I don't think Arjun expected to find an intelligent, thoughtful mind behind that face. He was taken in by her story and her simplicity….and I feel genuinely opens up and advises her. There seemed to be no airs around her …unlike NT, NE. What u see is what u get.
Drashti and Piyush did very well in this scene. Arjun- Geet – their first step to building up a rapport.
Arjun must have expected to see a small window into her thoughts but got a mountain load instead. He is intrigued by what he's hearing…he is drawn to this stranger girl's thinking, her fears, her past …she is an enigma…when push comes to shove…he will hesitate to exploit her….this is my initial reaction.
His male protective instinct kicks in and he tries to pacify her by giving her the analogy of different months in a year having different seasons. Phew…thank god…no more astronomy…more like the weather channel. But I liked his advice and Geet did too.
Geet feels reassured by this stranger, calms down and thanks him. She finds out that Arjun is here to meet Anwesha and goes to find her.
She finds her in the dining room…both wanting to talk to each other. So Anwesha leads her outside to talk to her and takes her to the outhouse which is dark. NE turns on the light and the dhol starts playing. Geet turns around to see the office staff decked up in all finery dancing the bhangra…Maan walks in and stays in the background. NE looks at Maan and smiles
NE tells her that she brought her her coz she didn't know how to ask for forgiveness. And adds a nice touch, courtesy Maan, all the girls are Geet's maiyka and the boys are from the groom's side…a complete family. NE says she is defo on the bride's side. Geet is touched and says that she has found a sister who will always support her and hugs NE….NE gives a thumps up to bro. Maaneet exchange smiles. Geet's humility comes out when she says that NE did not have to do all this…all she needed was a hug. But NE confesses that this was planned by Maan. Maaneet exchange a smile.
Maaneet, Dadi, Arjun – another good scene
Dadi asks wots happening hearing the music. Maan is about the respond when he spies Arjun and says U ?
Geet feels guilty that she left Arjun hanging and apologizes. Maan is shocked. Dadi is surprised to see him. Before Maan can say anything she tells him that Arjun had come to return the file but feels that Arjun would be the best wedding planner for them. Maan puts his foot down and says that I've decided that Arjun will not be the wedding planner. I like the way Geet tells him…Maan agar apne yeh faisla liya hai to soch samajkar hi liya hoga. But can I ask why ? Do u know today when I was alone, he'd helped me. Maan refuses to accept her statement and enlightens her …isne jo bhi kiya tumhari madad ke liye nahi, apne maqsad ke liye kiya…that Arjun is NT's bro.
Geet is shocked. She turns around and asks Arjun – u din tell me this. One thing I liked about Arjun is that he looks Geet straight in her eye…there's still hope for him.
Arjun defends himself saying I din know who u were…I just found out today that u r the girl Maan's getting married to. I know there is a lot of hatred for NT,so I'm relinquishing this contract coz I don't want anyone to look at me with doubt…n Maan I won't justify myself any further…and hands over the file to Geet….and asks Geet's forgiveness. I asked u to forget ur past but unknowingly I reignited those same thoughts from ur past….I'm sorry.
He gives Maan one last look and turns to leave.
Geet stops Arjun. Maan is upset…Geet what r u doing ? did u forget how many zakhm NT has given u ? He is the same NT's bro.
I know Maan. I can never forget that….nor can I ever forgive NT. But this doesn't mean that we should look at everyone associated with NT with suspicion. Arjun listening keenly.
Both Maaneet are so much in character….Maan the angry, arrogant, unwilling to believe anyone that has defied the truth. For Maan once he judges a person he is unwilling to change his opinion…coz he arrives at it with a lot of thought. This might not be applicable with his opinion about Arjun. For Maan life is either black or white…nothing in between.
Geet is also still the same, in love with life, inspite of all her past unhappiness, willing to give another a chance, unwilling to paint everyone with the same brush. She would rather color them differently.
Maan tries to protest but Geet stops him saying u n Dev r bros. But u two are so diff. After what Dev did to me, I shud never have trusted u. If I think like u then I wud think that u would also one day betray me.
Dadi says Geet is right (arjun turns around and looks at Maan who is listening to Dadi's words)…all 5 fingers are not alike…n how can u forget that he saved my life this morning. This is news to Geet….another brownie point in Arjun's favor…but Arjun is not gloating.
Arjun, I feel has also had a lot of eye-openers. For starters, he met Geet and has formed his own opinion. Then he met Geet with her family, Maan and Dadi. Then he finds out that Geet has been wrong by Dev and NT…something so bad that she can never forgive NT. And then inspite of this , how she is willing to give Arjun a second chance. A lot of things that Arjun has to digest…something I'm sure his sister has not been upfront with. How do all these developments affect his mission of ruining Maan's happiness ?
Bahut nek hai yeh Dadi says. Give him another chance. (Arjun pretty soon u hav to prove or disprove Dadi).
Geet continues. Maan u always look at people with sachai ke nazar. ..so tell me, wud it be right if we look at Arjun with NT ki nazariya se? How can we judge Arjun without knowing him?
Maan cannot argue with Geet's logic but is unwilling to bring down his guard and says that tho he may go with them but does not accept their choice. Geet looks at Dadi who nods her head in acquiescence. Geet then looks at Arjun smiling and Arjun returns her smile.
A perfect game of chess …in progress.
A white king, queen and bishop ….facing off a black knight who is trying to defend his dark queen. The duel between the white king and the black knight will be fascinating. The black king is nowhere to be found….But after today, I feel Arjun will go hunt Dev down to get some answers.
Nissar, CVs, Barry – Brilliant !!!
Gurmeet, Drashti, Arjun – Fantastic performances. Arjun welcome to the team.
NE, Dadi – Good job !

After a long time we finally get an episode with logic. I liked
the overall episode, even the Maan and Anvesha scene, which at a first glance
looks childish and immature coming Maan. The idea behind the scene was good;
Maan was trying to show her that prejudices are clouding her judgment. However,
this scene turned out to be subpar due to a subpar performance from Nikunj. Her
acting leaves Annie's character unconvincing. It's true that I don't like the
idea of Maan getting a sister out of thin air, however I do understand that what
is done is done. Just because the audience may accept this character out of
nowhere, doesn't mean that we can accept performances that are obviously
lacking on a regular basis. Annie's reactions to the truth revelation were
horrible at best and she ruined the scene for me by making it look amateur. The rest of the episode was good! I especially
liked the Geet and Arjun scene. It gives his character a mystery factor, and makes the audience wonder whether Arjun
is positive or negative. However, please CVs don't make a Arjun a another character in limbo. In simple words, we don't want another Dev! He is meant to negative and he should remain that way. The last scene were Geet chooses to give the
contract to Arjun despite knowing he is NT's brother, was very much in her character. Geet is a
person who chooses to believe in the good in people. She is innately trusting and at
times to a fault. And I for one didn't feel that Geet compared Maan to Arjun,
she simply compared the situation. I liked Geet giving Arjun the file; that
means the story is going somewhere. This track might seem like troubled times
ahead for Maan and Geet, but it is not necessarily so. This track has a lot of potential and will end
with Maan and Geet on top. However, whether this ends up being a winner in
terms of logic depends purely on execution, and execution alone. So CVs please put your logical minds to work
and give us something GEET like, because lately the show has been very out of
Maan today did something that goes against his very instincts. He knows that Arjun is up to no good BUT he lets Geet give the contract to Arjun. He expresses his displeasure and simply walks away. The look Maan gave as he walked past him was enough to show the audience that Maan will be ready. Now the Maan and Arjun war is all set. Let's sit back and watch how the battles unfold!
Sin: Awesome "analysis" my fren....Maan sure has his share of issues that expands beyond his gigantic ego. Aisa Bhi Hota Hai Part 2 is Priceless!

Maan and Anvesha scene - I liked this scene. For the first time Maan was able to play connect the dots and find a solution to the problem (this is how it should have always been and should continue to be). They way he explained to Annie about the truth was smart as well. It was a well thought out scene. It definitely felt like a brother sister moment, where the elder brother teaches his younger sister about right and wrong. Gurmeet was good with his expressions. If Nikunj was better with the acting the scene would have had more impact
Arjun and Geet Scene - This was my favorite scene of the episode. First off, I like Arjun's character.Do I like Arjun? YES!! A suave villain he is...and he might not be a villain at the end. He is interesting and there is more then meets the eyes. He has many layers. He has potential to be both positive and negative, basically a character with grey shades. He appears to be a strong character. I want to see more of what is going on in his psyche. The scene was a very emotional one. Geet's pain was evident and it made me genuinely feel for her as I always do. Geet pours out her heart to Arjun and he gives her good advice. I think Geet's innocence and sweet charm might end up to be Arjun's weakness and not Maan's as everyone continues to believe. How is it not possible to get engrossed in Geet's innocence and goodness? Some are jealous and hate her for it, while others love her madly for it. Drashti stole the show with her brilliant depiction of pain and sadness.
Arjun strikes again! - Arjun has somehow been able to get the three most important people in Maan's life (Geet, Daadi, and Anvesha) in the palm of his hand or so he thinks. I am sure he is under the impression that Geet will be his ticket to destroy Maan. I feel though he is wrong, Geet may be the only one who will save Maan. How will Arjun win the battle? Will it be through Geet or Anvesha's heart? I am hoping that he falls for Geet. That will add spice to the story. Him falling for Anvesha is just too predictable and been there done that. But that us most likely the path Cv's will take.
I love the fact that Geet gave Arjun a chance despite the fact that he is NT's brother. This nature about Geet is what sets her apart and why Maan loves her. I do not believe her to be his weakness at all. She is a strong woman who is able to fight for herself and for Maan when it is needed. Here we have two people who love each other so immensely that they are willing to give anything for the others happiness. I do not think we need to worry who will win the battle between Arjun and Maan because of this reason. They will stand up for each other and fight for each other. What will be fun to watch is how Arjun attempts to trample them. Now the question is how is right in judging Arjun, Maan or Geet? I shall say both. Ajrun has two sides to him. There is one side that is misguided by his sister and believes that Maan has ruined her life and there is his "good" side. If he was all evil, he would not have given Geet advice or consoled her. Maan is right in judging him because; Arjun is truly after his happiness. Geet is right because it is not in Arjun's innate nature to be evil but he is rather influenced by external factors.
Over all - An improvement from what I have been seeing for the past couple of weeks (pathetic script and logic). It was a good episode with things that finally make sense.
Now let's come to the theme of the den; Maan Singh Khurana. Naam
mein bhi kitna daam hai! What is he? Man or god? Obvious answer: man with god
complex. Sinny has wonderfully depicted the many facets within Maan Singh
Khurana's mind. I do not feel the need to say much more. I will say that every
human being is sculpted with the happenings of their past. The past frames our present
and future. It makes us who we are. Maan is a perfect example of that. We do
not know what has happened in his past, but were given clues that a certain experience
in his life has made him the man we see today. Maan sees himself as self actualized
and strong person both emotionally and physically. He holds himself in high
regards. He comes off as strong, but in reality he is weak. He is weaker then
Geet, who he perceives to be fragile and always in need of him (which I believe
comes from the fear of abandonment). The experience with Sameera broke him and
made him reclusive. That is not a sign of a person who is emotionally strong. Yet
Geet, who has faced so many hurdles, still lives life with a smile on her face.
Maan has high morals and is brave. That
is what makes him appear so superior. He may stand there like he is the king of
the world with his arms flooded across his chest and clenching his jaws, but he
is nothing but a man scarred from the battles of life. However, with time and the right influence we
are able to see his gentle side.
I still remember my reaction from the first time Geet bumped into him at the fair and he pushed her away. I hated him at that moment. But he made a lasting impression. Until I saw him save Geet from the water I wondered what kind of man denies a girl help. Then today we have the Maan Singh Khurana who is willing to give even his life for that same girl who was a thorn in his life. Now I wonder what kind of man does so much for a girl that you cannot help but love him. Yet that arrogance and self importance is still intact in his nature. We see a soft side, but we also see that rage when it is needed. We as humans are not made of a single quality, but many qualities that come to form when the situation requires it. Same goes for Maan. He may have been that arrogant man filled with hatred back in Hoshiarpur, today he is a man in love whose compassionate qualities (Not that he wasn't compassionate before.He has always been Geet's savior. Even if he acted like she annoyed him.) are brought to the forefront because of his predicament.
