Yesterday we left off where Saurabh was looking horrified
when Shaguna blurted out Neha's dying wish.
Saurabh gets up and with a tense
expression, tells Simran
that he wants to speak to her alone. Simran looks exasperated. Shaguna
is looking apologetic for having opened her mouth and Simran scolds her
for doing so. Shaguna
says sorry. Bhua asks if this is true. Simran just looks at her. Harsh
that actually, there's nothing wrong in that, because you two still
feelings for each other and care about each other. Simran excuses
herself to go
but as she is halfway across the room, Abhi tells her he will talk to
himself. Then he raises his voice and irritatedly tells everyone NEVER
about it ever again, ANY of you!!!
Saurabh is waiting and Abhi comes in. Abhi simply says that
it is not his or Simran's wish (manshaa) and that they cannot ever think of
such a thing. He requests Saurabh not to upset himself. Saurabh is short with
him – he tells him that if he has said what he came to say, he can go. When
Abhi was about to leave, he asks him to tell Simran that there is no need to
come to him. Abhi says 'ji' and goes. We get a close-up of Saurabh looking
disturbed and frustrated.
The next day, Harsh, Catherine, Simran and Abhi are having a
meal at a nice restaurant. Harsh asks Simran 'why not?' (obviously referring
to her and Abhi getting back together). Simran says 'Why?' Harsh says there is
nothing wrong with it at all. Harsh and Catherine express a wish to spend more
time with Abhi and Simran, and ask them to stay on in London for longer. The marriage is
very close and they will be going off on honeymoon soon. Harsh offers to
postpone the honeymoon so that they can all be together longer but Simran
rubbishes that saying she will feel very guilty. Ultimately they make
Abhi-Simran promise that they will still be there when they return from a 3-day
honeymoon, so that they can spend more time with them afterwards.
The next scene has Abhi, Simran, Aastha and Shaguna in the
car on their way to the wedding. It is morning time. Shaguna is fascinated with
the bazaar and stuff and chattering non-stop about what she sees. Shaguna goes
on about how pretty baby Aastha is looking, like a li'l 'khargosh' ... Abhi hears
this and just laughs out loud putting his head in his hands.. Incorrigible
Shaguna!! Next she is amazed to see lots of Indian-style shops and panipuri by the
wayside. Simran gleefully tells her that she shud be – this is the 'Little India'
Cut to the wedding venue – a tastefully decorated marriage
hall. Catherine arrives dressed in Indian bridal wear, looking pretty and
elegant. She walks down the aisle and joins Harsh where the priest chants the
shlokaas and the rest, who are all seated, look on with happy faces. Catherine
and Harsh exchange garlands and the priest offers Namaskaaram to all the Gods.
Then he calls out to the bride's father for doing the Kanyadaan. Catherine looks
dejected – there is no one to do the Kanyadaan. There is an awkward silence
where everyone looks at everyone else and then surprise, surprise – Abhi speaks
up that he will do it (by the way, he's looking quite cute in his headgear ) He
gets up and does the needful. Simran gives him a long, appreciative, profoundly
grateful look – he acknowledges it quietly with a half-smile. Thus, Harsh and
Catherine are married.
It's time for the bidaai and Harsh and Catherine are saying
goodbye amidst lots of laughter and merriment. Simran exclaims in mock horror
that no one is crying at this bidaai!! Catherine asks her what's a 'bidaai'…
Simran explains that a bidaai is like a farewell where everyone cries while
bidding goodbye to the bride, and that it's a very emotional moment. Catherine
still looks confused. Simran elaborates that since an Indian woman is very
attached to her parents, it is a very momentous time for her since she must
step into a new life with new people. Catherine says she does not have that
kind of bonding with her family. She left home (USA) at eighteen and her family
have not had the time to attend her wedding. Simran chides her never to say
that again and tells her warmly that we are your family now, and will always be
there for you. She asks Harsh to take full care of her to which he readily
agrees with a laugh.
We have Harsh and Catherine then coming back home to be greeted
with the traditional welcoming ceremony by Bhua. Soon after, they are shown
saying their high-spirited goodbye's and zooming off in their car for the
honeymoon. Bhua sighs that finally everything is done with.. and Simran teases
her that you are now a SAAS . Bhua smiles that she doesn't feel like one and
Foofaji teases her about starting to feel like one once she starts sunaoing
stuff to her bahu Bhua then encourages Simran and Abhi to go out and enjoy
themselves. They are hesitant as usual but when Bhua asks them to think about
Aastha, they smile and go off to get ready. Bhua notices Saurabh making a strained
face and asks him what happened. Saurabh asks her why she is forcing the two of
them to be together. Bhua just asks him why he is so insecure about Simran to
which he has no answer. She gives up.
Simran, Abhi, Shaguna and baby Aastha in a pram are walking
along the street. Simran is hungry and Shaguna expresses a wish for spicy food.
Simran scolds her for having become so fussy Abhi and Simran go off to get
some food leaving instructions to Shaguna not to wander too far, and that
they'll be right back. Shaguna says OK but obviously her head is still in the
clouds… she is caught up with everything happening around her. At first she
stands with the pram but then she notices a man smeared in paint(??
some yucky stuff) walking strangely to attract attention. He positions himself
cosily in a trash can with umpteen people staring at him. Shaguna is titillated
and goes to have a closer look, leaving the sleeping Aastha further and further
behind.. enter yesterday's Wicked Lady … she sees Shaguna has left the pram
practically unattended and moves closer and closer....
Abhi and Simran are walking along having giant sandwiches.
Something gets stuck on Simran's cheek and Abhi makes quite a show of removing
it.. taking his time.. Simran gets embarrassed and tells him to stop.. finally
it's off.. whewwww. Abhi says he had wanted to ask Simran something – did Neha
really say 'that' as her dying wish? Simran says yes and asks him why. Abhi
says just like that.. Simran asks – but why? Abhi says he wonders what was
going on through her mind at the time.. it couldn't have been easy for her to
have made that decision. He tells Simran to come along.
Then we see Shaguna getting closer and
closer to the 'funny
man'. Eventually she is right next to him, squealing with delight,
dancing around him, as he makes faces and mock scares her in turn. The
wicked lady seizes the opportunity. She picks up the sleeping baby in
and quietly walks off. Shaguna is in such raptures she walks mindlessly
the pram and starts wheeling it back, without even checking to see if
inside. She meets Abhi and Simran coming from the opposite direction
smilingly bends down to give Aastha something to eat and gets a BIG
asks Shaguna where Aastha is. Shaguna replies that she is right here in
pram.. then notices the empty pram and is taken aback. Simran is almost
hysterical by now and Abhi looks like he is about to throw up – he is
beyond words... Shaguna cries that Aastha was just sleeping in her
starts shouting for Aastha and they all start looking for her
is just one big confused mess and Simran is crying and Abhi is walking
asking everyone if they have seen his baby girl and Shaguna is also
everywhere.. the madness goes on and on but they can't find her...
Simran comes face to face with Shaguna and gives her a TIGHT slap
she is nearly crazed with shock and fear… and cries out in extreme pain..
"Where is my Aastha? Where is my Aastha?" Abhi just holds Simran and she clings
on to him.. crying, disbelieving, frozen with fear.. while Shaguna is left
nursing her face and looking petrified....

thanks for the great update. i dont understand why all twists are made to increase simrans agony and misery. wisdh the director does somthing to keep simran happy.
my idea on the twist is" maybe after astha disapperas with the wicked lkady - simran and abhi together would raise nehas kid.
