Sorely missed each minute of the timeout from IF...Its been 2 days!!!
As if being taken ill wasn't bad enough the network glitches ensured I had no access to all the fun at IF.
Nevertheless, here I am bursting at the seams with so many thoughts on the turn of events for the last 2-3 days on GHSP.
It's a shrewd marketing/ publicity move on CV's part on how they shoot and air promo's that leads the audience to presume one thing
but is miles away from what is to actually transpire.Its evident from the pre cap that more tense moments are to follow.
Unless the Maan doc conversation about aborting the kid is a post wedding scene,Maan can never be at peace with that kind of knowledge and enjoy the wedding.
Geet too is not in the best of health and the wedding just might not take place.
Therefore, the rumor of Maan taking " kasam" to wed in 12 days might hold some water.
Even if the two tie the knot per the muhurat and Maan is presented with the dilemma to choose between the devil and the deep blue sea ,
we know he has a promise to keep , Maan Junior over Mrs Maan.
However, if the scene is before the varmaala, a Maan Geet intense face off is on the cards. Maan will convey the doctors opinion or Geet will
overhear the same. She will then tell Maan that even in her wildest dream she cannot envisgae a life without her baby.And if that spells death knell for her, so be it.
She has been truly blessed to have found her soulmate in Maan and that she can leave the world in peace knowing that her baby will have the worlds best dad in Maan.
Maan will eventually relent and see reason in Geet's wishes. Afterall, he had been selfish once before and knows by experience that the love they share is selfless.
Both know that choosing their baby over each other is the truest testimony of their love. Of course CV shall continue dangling sword over Geets head time and again but what the heck its a love story and cliche shall prevail.
None of the reel world doc's are doing the real medical fraternity any good.Sigh! Wonder why no medical association has bothered suing the makers of tv serials for outraging its community and showing it in bad light.If I were a doc I would take offense and file a PIL just for the kicks.
The mom's unconscious not dead. She will come around eventually.And a mother always has the first right to decide about her baby.
There cannot be a decision made without consulting the mother in question.
This brings me to the lecture on women empowerment and emancipation in yesterdays episode.
That a Geet-Brij conforntaion is on the anvil was no secret as also the promo with Geet being shot at by Brij was a figment of someone's cruel idea of a joke at CV's creative team.
With that being an air tight alibi , CV decides to toe the line of social responsibility to add some pizzazz to the protagonist's characterization.
A small town girl, struggling to gain foothold in a big bad world, a chequered past to make peace with, a guardian angel to her rescue albeit disguised as a detractor,
coming to terms with reality, discovering a sense of individuality and independence and carving her unique identity
and the road to discovering self is the kind of stuff legends are made of.
(Remember how PC's portrayal of a small town girl making it big in the world of fashion in Mumbai, the great heights she scaled, the greater fall she had...all made Fashion a runaway hit? PC even picked a national award for it...that says something, doesn't it?)
Time and again Geet's character has shown promise of going beyond the adorably clumsy and naive girl Maan falls in love with.
In the episode where just before Nayantara falls to near death on her own, a heated exhange of words ensue. Geet instead of being cowed down by circumstances puts up a brave front,asserts herself and the truth. For once, I was glad and relieved,she dint turn into a cry baby needing a mouthpiece or outside help.
Geet and Maan are yet to celebrate their first valentine's and CV cannot kill the chemistry between its love birds.So all ruffled feathers will be smoothed over in time.
Back to the episode, its a marvel of sorts that Brij makes it to Khurana Mansion/Outhouse despite the CCTV's and bolstered security measures.
He doesnt even need a disguise despite the police having launched a massive manhunt to ensare him. Why Maan is footing all the costs over security remains an enigma when clearly all the baddies are having a free run on his home turf.
The bluetooth bit in the story gave us some happy moments and then as the savior ,was the hero. In the moments intervening Brij chasing Geet downstairs and Maan rushing to her rescue there is not a soul around.
I may not be aware of how things work at a Punjabi wedding but a bride being left all alone in a near empty house is stupid beyond imagination.
There are about a dozen people at the door to welcome the baraat. Where are all the security personnel, janitors, cooks? Any human being at all who would have heard Geet's shrieks.
Not before Maan lands couple of punches do the other make their way to the hall. The menfolk comprising- Adi sir, romeo, pandeyji, manisha are shown coming down the stairs.
How did they get up there? Werent they right behind Maan at the door? And with so much commotion why dint a single security personnel show up, not until more blows rain on Brij?
The brother sister verbal duel was sufficiently canned with high doses of drama wrenching out every bit of emotion from the audience.
It still remains a fact that two of Khurana's worst adversaries do not know the truth - Brij and Arjun.
Brij doesnt know about Dev being Maan's brother. At a later date ,maybe he would have a change of heart on being told of the truth and actually apaologise to Maan.
Ditto with Arjun. He is unaware of his sisters wrongful deeds in the first place. It would be too late before he realises that. He would lose out on Annie love and the trust of Khurana's by then.
And viewers can squirm with nervousness if Nayantara wil speak the truth upon regaining consciousness. Should she do that, GHSP can call it curtains and sign off in style.
Arjun, Nayantara, Brij will all kiss and make up. Sameera amd Vicky can stay put at their godforsaken places. Hope CV lets the sleeping dogs lie amd wrap up the show instead of digging out skeletons from the closet and make a khichdi out of the story.
Eventually, the 'ma da ladla/ papa ki pari' shall come into the world, safe in her mothers arms and the two together in daddy's warm embrace.
Makes for one happy family!!!
