Parvati and Pallavi have their first confrontation in months. Sasha's
plan to kill Om goes awry when Monica intercepts the bullet. Monica
dies and Sasha is reminded of the many warnings he received. Parvati
realizes what a cost they paid in order to uphold justice. The battle
comes to a sad end.
And now Kahaani [Yet another good episode]
The shades of gray surround Monica's funeral gathering. Her father
performs the final rites and then begins the cremation. Garima and
Sasha arrive at the scene escorted by the police. Monica's father is
bewildered when he sees Sasha and tells him that he'll not let him
live in peace for what he has done to Monica. Garima tries to talk
reason with him but he won't listen. He screams at the police and
tells them to get rid of Sasha immediately. Sasha is taken to court
where he's consumed in a maddening grief. The judge proclaims him
insane and sentences him to an asylum. Sasha can't even speak he's so
in shock and both he and Garima are shattered in a literal sense. As
the police vehicle drives Sasha to the asylum they stop at a traffic
light where Sasha sees a biker, just like him, stop next to the
police vehicle. Suddenly a past of malicious and bitter memories come
The four bikers storm the streets of Mumbai with a car in the middle.
The Gargs arrive at the Agarwal mansion and tear down the flowers.
Sasha, Machan, Rob and Neel walk down the grand steps of the mansion.
The battle between the families begins. Om signs on the papers
transferring everything into the name of the Gargs. Sasha plays mind
games with Krishna. Sasha throws Gunn on the bed before revealing the
deal between himself and Krishna. The Agarwal Industries board is
taken off only to be replaced by one that says Garg International.
Parvati tries to slap Sasha but he holds her hand down. Machan is
arrested and then sentence is passed on him. Parvati gives Sasha a
time frame of 18 days as per the battle of the Mahabarata. 18 days
later Sasha falls down at Gunn's feet. Monica is shot and she falls
dead in Sasha's arms…
Snapping back to reality Sasha watches as the biker drives off and
the lights change color. The police vehicle arrives at the asylum and
Sasha is locked away in his cell where he recalls one of Parvati's
famous lines to him. "There is no good or evil Sasha, every man is
given what he deserves according to his Karma." Sasha starts laughing
hysterically and the darkness drifts into his cell as his theme plays
one last time reminding us that maybe, just maybe, he will be back.
At the Agarwal mansion a new day has dawned and everyone happily
participates in the morning pooja as Parvati goes from room to room
with the aarti and everyone is happy. Finally she goes to Krishna and
Gunn's room where she sees the two of them sitting on opposite sides
of the bed. Gunn tells Parvati that she was feeling a bit weak and
that's why she didn't come downstairs. Parvati asks whether she
should send her breakfast upstairs but Gunn says that she's fine and
that she'll be down soon.
As she walks out of the room Parvati tells herself that their enemies
are a good distance away from them but the distance between the
people in the house has still not ended. Shruti interrupts her
thoughts and asks what she's wondering, Parvati passes it off as
nothing and the two of them join the rest of the family downstairs.
Kamal makes fun of Parvati and she chases him away while Dadi says
that today they maybe happy but they must not forget the price of
their own people they had to pay. Avantika, Sambhav and Parth have
suffered for other people's mistakes. Vandana tells Dadi that they're
doing everything they can to save Parth and Dadi says that one good
thing that came out of all of this was that Chavi was able to bridge
the gap between Vikram and Chaaya and now they're back together.
Parvati tells Om and Gaurav to join everyone else for breakfast and
she is about to go to the mandir to leave her pooja thali when she
hears a sharp sound of heels piercing the mansion. Parvati observes
the lamp on her thali and watches as it flickers. She turns around
and is shocked to see Pallavi walking up the stairs accompanied by
two men carrying trays of shagun.
Pallavi walks straight to Parvati and seeing the pooja thali in her
hand, says that this is the way to greet visitors. Everyone is
shocked to see her and Parvati asks what she's doing here. Pallavi
says that she's here to see her bahu. Kamal is shocked at this
statement and asks what she wants to do with Gunn and says that in no
way is she Pallavi's bahu. Pallavi tells Kamal that he hasn't changed
one bit but right now she needs to talk to someone with a little
sense and Parvati has a lot of sense. Krishna walks in with Gunn and
Pallavi walks over to him. She sees Gunn and goes to talk to her and
kisses her on the forehead saying she's as beautiful as her name. The
family watches as Pallavi takes out a chain for Gunn and tries to put
it on her however, Gunn moves away. Pallavi catches her gaze and sees
that she's looking at Parvati. Pallavi asks her if she needs to ask
Parvati's permission to accept a gift from her saas and then tells
Parvati that she's still playing Hitler at the mansion and that she
should stop ruling other people's bahus. She goes on to say that she
just wants to gift her daughter-in-law something special because
she's wearing an outdated mangla sutra but Gunn stops her and
Gunn tells Pallavi that she's an elder and so she won't be rude to
her but she can't stand to watch her family being insulted like this.
She tells Pallavi that had she come here with some sincere love in
her heart then maybe she would have touched her feet and got her
blessing but all Pallavi wanted to do was to insult the family and
that is unacceptable. Parvati, Om and the rest of the family smirk as
Pallavi gets stumped. Pallavi tells Gunn that nothing has changed
because she has already been washed in Parvati's colors and she has
learnt exactly who to insult and how and that could have only come
from this house. Krishna tells Pallavi that she hasn't changed
either. He says that had she come today as a mother then she would
have received a lot of love but she chose otherwise and so did they.
He asks if she's done with seeing her bahu because if she is then she
can leave. Pallavi puts the chain back in the box and starts to walk
out when Parvati stops her. She tells Pallavi that they've been
drowning with gifts from her since the beginning of time so they
don't need the ones she's brought today so she can take them back
with her. Pallavi walks out and the men who followed her in follow
Later Shruti is looking for something in her cupboard when Parvati
disturbs her and asks what she wants. Parvati asks if she's not going
to work and says that the way she's dressed it looks as though she's
going for a party. Shruti says that she's going to work and then
going to the party of one her employee's kid's first year birthday.
Shruti says that she's looking for a purse and Parvati offers to give
her one but Shruti says that she had some important documents and her
credit cards in the purse and she last took it to the engagement
party. Parvati says that maybe she left it there and says that she
should go to the Gill's home and see if she can find it and also make
that an excuse to meet them again because the last time they met it
wasn't all that pleasant. Shruti says that nothing that happened on
that day is their fault. Parvati says that still for all they should
Meanwhile Krishna walks in to see Gunn going through some books. He
remembers her sewing his shirt with the broken button and breaks the
button off the shirt he's wearing and pretends to try and fix it
again. Gunn walks over to him and sews it for him. He thanks her and
she says that she doesn't want his thanks because hereafter she'll
give all his shirts to Kundan and he'll fix them. Krishna says that
he thanked her for standing up to Pallavi and Gunn goes silent. When
she moves away he tells himself that Sasha is paying for his sins but
wonders when he will stop being punished for his crime.
On the next Kahaani
Shruti and Gayatri meet up again and become quite friendly. Meanwhile
Pallavi is back to her old ways and won't stop at anything to get
even with her bahu for the insult.
