All fights or conflicts are the tests of the true characters of those involved and present. We had Dolly (and possibly Khali) on one side and Ashmit-Veena on the other with Sam and Shweta almost the mute spectators.
I thought it was pretty difficult to fathom what was going through
Shweta's mind. Or for that matter, another mute spectator, Sam. May be
they were enjoying the fight between their two enemies. It was as if in
part II of the fight with Dolly, their characters were replaced by
Ashmit and Veena. For them, it was a win-win situation.
In particular, the way Sam was calmly, indifferently watching the fight
without even uttering a word, let alone intervening as Khali did without
much success and later, on being prompted, the Captain (!) Shweta did.
I wonder many a times, if the captains are not expected to intervene in
such tense situation, what are they appointed for? Maybe Shweta took the
political advantage of the situation, but the looks on her face were
not conveying the same. The expressions on her face were of someone who
is pretty disgusted with these kind of fights and perhaps of
helplessness with these daily Dolly Bindra fights of which she herself
was a party once. May be deep down, she was happy Ashmit and Veena were
carrying on where she and Sam left it, although I am sure she is no
great friends of Ashmit or Veena as one could make out from Shweta's
Samfans must be relieved for once that he acted politically correct and
played the game in its true (!) sense. I personally would have loved Sam
getting up and intervene like a true gentleman.
It was also funny to see Ashmit reacting to Khali's intervention and
asking him to lay off. In the same breathe, he is criticizing Khali for
not doing anything in such situation in spite of being so able-bodied
and elder. Every guy worth is 2 mm biceps wants to be a superman in
front of his lady love and it was hilarious to see Ashmit telling Veena
how he would have dealth with Khali and how he would have burnt him with
a burning log. I thought that was also an act of verbal violence and
threat to be taken note of. But can you imagine a rat threatening a
mountain by saying I will gulp you?
Also to note was Ashmit giving the steel pipe to Dolly to hit him with.
It was probably the same pipe that Dolly had beaten Sam with the last
time - something that BB did not show after announcing that the scenes
were too violent to be shown to family audience.
One more side observation was Dolly mentioning Ashmit and Veena under the "rajaai " or the blanket. I would not elaborate, but I guess that said it all.
Did Dolly realize that you do not feed milk to a Cobra? Of all the
people, Khali had to remind Dolly didi that it was she who saved her
after he nominated her. It also showed that Khali too has a mind of his
own and he does not always do or say what Dolly wants as Shweta or Sam
and others think.
For Veena it was a complete U-turn as far as Dolly was concerned. From her respect as a woman she came down to doubting Dolly's femininity ! She always comes out as a shallow character.
thought Khali could not have pushed Dolly (being a lady) in the same
manner as he did to Ashmit (or, earlier Sam) but like Shweta he did try
to take Dolly away by physically holding her shoulder. At least he did
something as he had done before and though he may be little partial to
Dolly, I think he ends up getting raw deal any which way in these duels.
a great human conflict situation for the analysts. An extreme conflict
situation often brings out the worst (and even the best) of the
characters involved. In this particular conflict, everybody came out as
