BRIJ HANDA: The MOGAMBO who hardly says "MOGAMBO KHUSH HUA".
Brij Handa has all the qualities that the audience can ask for in an ideal "bad guy" .He is grumpy, ruthless cultural fanatic and believes that he must always have the last word. For him, the family's name and pride holds greater priority than the relationships that make a family. He is a male chauvinist who believes that women in the household should have no say in the family matters. They should not be given the liberation to have an opinion of their own or decide about their lives as only the "men" of the family are capable to know what's better. Being the elder brother to the main lead ,Geet , He forces her to get married to an NRI who would supposedly take her abroad after marriage. When she displays the desire to study further, he pressurizes her on the name of family's "izzat" and asks her to do only what she is asked to do. The wedding was kept a sneaky affair and no one in the society was informed.
Even after knowing that Dev,the NRI husband of Geet, has abandoned her at the airport after taking all her money and property ,he accuses HER of doing something wrong , instead of supporting his sister during this crucial time. He blames Geet for tarnishing their family's pride and honor when the truth is that the "sensible and responsible" men in the family did not bother to cross check the validity and authencity of the family in which they were marrying the daughter of their house. Brij's chauvinist nature is clearly displayed when he punishes Geet, though the family men were clearly at the fault . The audience gets to see the darker side of him when he asks Geet to abort the child so that they don't have to answer the society of HOW ,the daughter of THE HANDA FAMILY got pregnant without getting married. When Geet denies to get the abortion, he threatens her to kill her into pieces. He brings in the midwife to forcefully abort the child her younger sister was carrying, he tries to kill the baby with an over doze of the sleeping pills, he tries to burn his sister alive if she doesn't give in to his will. The ruthless Brij doesnt stop just there. When Geet decides to go against the entire family and their so-called discipline by running from the home to save her baby, Brij sends his goons to find her and orders them saying "KILL her right there and then ,don't think of her as my sister." The anger, the malevolent,the madness to find the person who has tried to defame his "FAMILY PRIDE" could be clearly seen in Brij's eyes. He was neither a brother, nor she was a sister to him, the only relationship they shared at that point was of HATE and COLDNESS.
The audience cried and cursed Brij when he made his first stroke with the sword in attempt to cut his sister into pieces. His hands did not tremble while he proceeded with the second one and saw his sister crying in immense pain. He laughed at her helplessness, She reminded him that she was a sister to him , he abjured. She begged him, he ignored. And the audience was left with "YOU ARE EVIL AND A COLD-BLOODED ANIMAL".
Nevertheless, It wouldn't be wrong to say that he was somewhere responsible in making Geet,sabse Paarayi. If, it wasn't because of his fear, Geet would have not run from the house to save her child. She would have not met Maan at the jungle who advised her to take a stand against her family and fight for her rights. If it was not after his merciless actions, Geet would not disown her family in front of the society they seem to care about most, and sent her "Brij Veerji" to the Jail. It was his actions and reactions that gave Geet the reason to live which was : to save the child from the evil and she somewhere along the road, she found the real "Geet" who was anything but "A Handa" .
Why he did what he did?
1. Influence :He is highly influenced with Daarji's brash ways who gives the utmost importance to the disciple and values which he has cherished all his life. He respects the way how his Daarji has never bent/broken the rules and principles for anyone that he has set ,and when he sees that Geet has trespass the line he decides to punish her in his own way which may look cruel to others but he thinks it's the right thing to do.
2. Ego: Troubled person like Brij is ought to have extensive ego issues. His "male" ego was crashed into pieces when the "female" of the house decided to go against his command.
3. Fear:That Geet might tell an outsider about what happened to her in order to seek an help or support for herself ,if left alive.
4. Social Defame/boycott: What will they do if the child was not aborted? How will they answer the society upon questioning "How did she became pregnant without marrying?"
5. Mental issues:The dude was a psycho who may have some serious mental issues and he felt happiness in other's distress. In other words, a sadist.
6. RAZZ PICHLE JANAM KA: Poor guy was ANARKALI in PICHLE JANAM who was cemented alive in the wall by Geet who was SHEHEN-SHAH-E-AKBAR back then. Hence, he became evil/wanted to kill Geet and her baby to take the revenge from Geet THIS JANAM and COMPLETE ADHOORA KAAM.
What happened to the MOGAMBO..did he live un-happy ever after?
This question left unanswered by the creative team which made the viewer to think "Is this it?" what really happened with Brij after Geet left Hoshiyaarpur?Did he got punished? If yes,for how long? Long enough to make it EVEN. Is there anything that can make it EVEN? Worst: Did he got bailed out due to Daarji's so-called CONTACTS? Sooo many questions , yet no answers.
-As 'BABA' BRIJ: After being the victim of the "gang rape" ,He understands the word "ABUSE" and comes to Delhi to do PASHCHATAAP of his [deed] (Credit for the word "deed": "No-one" but "me" HAAN).He decides to do KANYADAAN of GITH to mukt himself from the GUILTY BHOOT.
-As "PAAPI GUDDA" BRIJ : Believes that GEET should be PUNISHED for sending him to the jail and making FALOODA of PHAMILY KI IZZAT and says "OYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE mein tere chote chote tukde kar doonga OYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" while audience will be shouting "DUMBASS your TALWAAR got rusty while you were out in the "BIGG BOSS" house."
YASH: An unwanted Sidekick ?
In contrast to Brij, Yash was introduced as sweet, charming, a complete "chocolate" boy who have returned from US for the sake of his family business and to serve as a guardian to his "nephew and niece". He is Selfish, but that's the only trait he shares with Brij. Unlike Brij , He is not vicious but is extremely likable. He is a cool guy who wants to see everyone around him happy. Yash is a complete "Casanova" and it seems that the only "major" concern in the life is to have a good time with the girls and in order to do that he needs someone who can take care of his nephew and niece . This is when he meets Geet who's sad and worried due to Maan's absence. Being a flirt that he is, he tries to woo her by his charm but remains unsuccessful. He even offers her the position of CEO in his company to lure her but Geet refuses the offer saying she is simply not interested.
His selfish trait is displayed when he proposes the deal in front of Geet to agree to join his company and he in return he will tell her Maan's whereabouts to which Geet gives in.
Why was it important to have him ?
Personally, I don't find his character well developed and don't think he was "important". He was introduced as a "catalyst" in Maan and Geet's lovestory, though he dint do much to serve the purpose. Instead they started his own lovestory with Meera.
-He employed Geet in "India paints" (his company) as CEO after she left Khuranna constructions: I don't think that there was a need to sketch a fresh character for this. Mr. Chopra would have served the purpose by offering Geet a decent job. It would have been much better to see Geet and Maan trying to cope up with that situation while being away from each other instead of Maan being an "hutch pug" who sings "You and I, in this beautiful world" and follows her EVERYWHERE.
If you don't know what m talking about , watch This:
- Just when audience thought that they will get to see the "chemistry" between him and Meera ,he announced his return to US after selling his company to Maan Singh Khuranna . Once again, fans were left in dismay and they end up making several video mixes in his memory.
Will fans have the opportunity to make endless romantic VMs on Meera and Yash? If not, What will happen to YASH afterall?
-Meera will marry him after she goes back to US?
- He will comeback as Anne's long lost boyfriend/best friend to act as a yet another "catalyst" in Err-jun and Annne's LOVE-ISHTORY.
The question remains unanswered yet again with no answer whatsoever.
ADVICE: Create the characters that you can nourish. Don't waste talent and potential.

The episode was a filler. Maneet scenes were very cute. I loved the way Geet pulled Maan...she sure is a lioness. However, the overall flow of the episode was lacking, too many and unwanted Arjun and Annie scenes and unnecessary self-talks for Geet.
CVs, Anvesha's characterization is leaving me with a foul taste
in my mouth. I'm not sure if this is how Maan's sister should be portrayed. If
you are going to use her younger age as an excuse for her behavior, then spare
your speech because that is a hard sell. Being a teenager does not mean you can't
act sensibly. As of now, she is merely a teenager with raging hormones
desperate for any male attention. She is an attention seeker; first it was Maan
and now it's Arjun. Why can't she be sophisticated and intelligent, instead of
the puppet that she is shown to be now? Also, I know that
you want to portray Arjun as this smart and calculating guy who is manipulating
Annie for his advantage. However, with Annie practically throwing herself at him,
what is there for Arjun to do? What is
so clever about a villain who doesn't really have to do much? This is much like
a lion who hunts a baby gazelle; sure it an easy kill but it makes you look like a loser. In a way, it makes Arjun look lame...I mean in regards to characterization not physical appearance. That, he got it covered by himself, with that wannabe Bieber look of his.
Neha very good job with your Da Brij and Da Yash
Here is my two cents.
Brij: Brij Handa, is the epitome of patriarchy at its worst form.
Despite his existence in the 21st century, his mind set is still of
those preceded him two generations. Brij is highly influenced by his patriarch,
Daarji. Daarji has intricately brain washed Brij to becoming an exact replica
of himself; he has made Brij into a torch bearer of a culture that should have
ceased to exist many generations ago. He is truly a product of a society that
made men Gods and women the dirt beneath their shoes. Every man, not matter how
respectful they are towards their female counterparts, is a male chauvinist to
a certain degree. Brij on the other hand, is a male chauvinist to the core with no consideration what so ever to any woman in his life, be it his mother,
wife or sister. His philosophy is rather straight forward: Men lead and women
follow. Any anomaly to this norm is to be taken care of immediately, almost to
ensure that it the anomaly doesn't become normality. Geet was one such anomaly, much like Geet's
friend Channi. Brij is a man who justifies any of his actions in the name of
Family izzat and he didn't think twice before following Daarji's orders to end
Geet's life. His humanity is lost in a whirlpool that is his false sense of
self righteousness. His immunity to Geet's pleas to spare her life in the name
of family is unnerving. He chose so called family izzat over blood, and and had
he had his way, Geet would no longer exist. Nonetheless, that is not what
happened. Why? Because the story would end with heroine's death. So what happened was what always
happens, the hero came in the nick of time and saved the damsel in distress.
For Brij, Geet is not only the one that got away, but also the one that exposed
him and sent him to jail. In Brij's eyes, that is a making mockery of the very
thing he tried to protect, his family izzat. Being the resilient and the
ruthless man he is, it is hard to believe that the he will leave things
unfinished. And Geet, is unfinished business.
Yash Malhotra: Another character much like the non-existent sister that was created out of thin air. His character is not developed but he did serve as a catalyst to get Maan and Geet back together following their misunderstanding. Yash is very easy going character with a lighthearted view of the world. He had a balancing effect to the dramatic aspect of other characters. Yash and Meera track had much potential as a nice side track to Maan and Geet's. However, his sudden departure to "US" put the track in the back burner, but still leaving room for a potential come back. As of now, the possibility of Yash making a logical return is bleak, yet not impossible. It might take some serious brainstorming on the CVs part to make this happen. Potential return of Yash serves two main purposes.
1) The CVs can explore the Yash-Meera story. This is of very importance, because it will ensure that Dev stays away from Meera. Dev and Meera romance has disaster written all over it. Yash's return to the show will make way for Dev to return to NT. This will make everything in Maneet world all right again. Maan and geet vs. Dev and NT
2) Yash and Meera can be valuable allies/confidants to Maan and Geet in their battle against Dev and NT.
