Version 2|: Focused on Biji Arohi Convo & Shef Arohi Convo(my 2nd take in the lounge)
I felt getting the charm of KMH
again, the felt charm I got when I kept on repeating mode listening to
the mother's letter in KMH1! What a beauty! Classic! 7-stars
I always felt but
why now Arohi has got a whole joint family, why there is not the same
charm of the mother's letter. Unconsciously I kept hunting for the
'hadke' response in KMH2 of the mother's letter and I felt it to be
missing. As the concept also was unveiling, I had to wait for it to
unfold to understand what the concept is about.
felt that in the love of Ahluwalia's there is still missing for Arohi.
I kept in a search mode that Arohi needs something more than that and
even being full in warmth of her family, there is something more she
needs. I could not figure then what?I could not link the photoshoot stills with the show how it was going and yet it has given us so so much in concept!
The fairtytale built of the show
with the charm of adding real themes to it, truly mesmeris me! I will
later have a post on this bit!
For the time being, I will focus on Arohi and Family.
I realised after watching this episode that what was it showing indeed!
parents, no matter how grown up the child becomes,they pampered her so
much that in their eyes' she is still the baby. The child, though at
time feels overprotected and suffocated bu knows it is out of over love
to her and refuse to see that she is the big girl now! In response to
this love and warmth and goodness, she spread the innocent joy to them
even if she is different with her friends. ''friends are for that
nah,seeing the proper blooming of the person, where at times parents
failed to see.'' It is not fault of parents', it is just they love
their children more than anything else in this world. This is also the
Ahluwalias. In building this love,they have also inculcated prejudices
in the child's mind about what is meant by good and bad. They are again
not 100 percent at fault because they did not want their children to be
I felt the sense
of suffocation of Arohi in this environment! It was not in a bad way
but then she loves them all equally that she is ready to do everything
for their happiness. Like last time we said that Arjun was the puppet
of Rudra Pratap Singhania for his business work, here Arohi is the
puppet of the family love.
yesterday, this was not the story at all! It was not about the
Ahluwalias but it was how different two families can be! Mother's house
will remain still the baby's shelter but as it is said and every
parents (''damned I am myself being haunted on the moment'')
have the dream that their children married and progress in new family
and life. It is not that they want to get rid of their daughter but
like my mom once told me ''Nisha,
just like I left my home to come to build this family, one day, you
will do it as well. The instiled values in you when brought to another
new home and accept part of the new values, that in itself is magnemity.
Secondly, as when
you have come in this world, we have already seen more life than you,
it is logic that we are going to depart from life before you. In this
sense, the parents feel happy to see that their children have someone
other than them by their side who will walk and live life together and
instil those mixed values to the newcomers of the world. For wherever
you or your brother progress in life, this is the biggest achievement
I was teenager
when mom told me this, that time I felt that 'I will never leave my
parents for somebody else. He has to come and live at my place. Why
should I leave my parents for him?'
Phir I grew up and
when I fulfiled my dreams, concerning studies, I start seeing more and
more meaning in these words, making me realise that from the ''phase of
growing up'' now i have ''grown up''.All I know now, is the experience
and strong and far sighted character of my mother is the tubelight of
my life. I have grown to the same level where I see what is in it and
many more ''knowledge'' she filtered me. So for me guys, it was hard
for me to gulp the fragility of Arohi's mother. Yet Arohi's mother was
the sweet and fragile person who is only thinking the best for her
Her eyes blurred
yesterday was all for the motherly affection and genuine care she has
for her Arohi and as she is also built with a picture what is good and
bad, she fears to see Arohi in more tears and in that the parents
failed to see that Arohi is changed and is ''growing up.''
All the persons
in the Ahluwalias except DJ and Dadu actually are unable to match the
strong character Arohi was building too. Still it did not match the
fully real strength and support of character that Arohi needed. They
were more of her ''letting go with limits'' and thus still was
uncomparable to the ''mother's letter in season 1''
because the story this time is different. It has taken the right amount
of time but now is showing light to it. Yesterday's episode earmarked
it. The story is not about a girl who
is going to fulfill her deepest dream for herself and for her father.
The story is not about an unmarried girl who has some dreams to fulfil
before moving on the next step in life. The story is not about a start
of a love story.
The story is
about the journey of a young girl/a daughter to a married
woman/daughter in law of a new family. A new family of different way of
living and culture and initially how difficult is the young girl who
has spent years in a family shower of love and warmth has now married
in a family where emotions donot exist and is more materialistic.
It is difficult to adapt if it keeps being compared on ''my family is like this'' ''your family is like that''
This is where the word of experience came again to tell her how to live!
masterpiece and all of a sudden felt, this is the support and strength
that Arohi was longing to hear. All of a sudden I felt the wisdom and
experience of the mother who taught her child how to move on to her
dreams and getting someone special and never lose courage (season 1) is
now giving knowledge of ''expectation one has in married life and
family and when it is not like the dream and expectation, how to live
and be happy in it.''
It was a masterpiece for me to the extent I quote one of the line as my siggie.
( represents old age and wisdom, represents strong character,
represents kind heartredness and sacredness of character, represents
good that can exist among the built prejudice, represents the pillar of
the family, represents ''never give up'', represents ''stand for it''
and represents warmth and love) talking to Arohi
(represents young and impulsiveness, represents learning new lessons in
life, represents ''yet to be seen' represents 'respect to elders'
represents individuality and freedom of thoughts, represents of ''if it
has not get proper advice, never compromise'','represents modern and
stubborness in character,' 'represents needs to ripen in character and
finally but not leastly ''assimilating lessons in life)
What lessons she got in the conversation (already wrote in first take)
And again Shefali, who is
also young and is learning experience of life, learned those values
from Arohi. Shefali who knows Arohi more than her family knows that
Arohi is changing.
After the conversation of Biji and Arohi, it is contrasted immediately to the conversation between Shefali and Arohi.
The friendship of Arohi and Shefali is one of a kind
I have never seen this friendship
explored in old shows I watched. Shefali is a practical and cool girl.
She is as sweet and innocent as Arohi but she is more outgoing than
Arohi. In the sweetness of her character, beauty is added in her
simplicity and girlie personality that is as kind and clean heart as
Arohi. No wonder she is the ''ame soeur'' of Arohi. Shefali is not
those friends who ''prompt into conclusions.'' she is not those friends
who listened a sentence and give ''5 lines of advices'' and she is not
those friends who wish bad and hurt her friend. The value of this
friendship is mindblowing with an element of 'chill' and 'support', with an element of 'having fun and blast' and 'learning the lessons of life together
She knows the nature of Arohi well and
infact when Arohi was not married,she was the only one who understood
Arohi from the start.
She was not that friend like Gauri would
have reacted 'she is an old lady,forget it, we are youngs,we know we
are right, you need to do it.'
No she is not! She respects the 'old
lady' as much as Arohi does and she is as different as Arohi. For a
moment of glory to her,she was happy that 'Biji' melted the anger of
Arohi but still Shefali is seeing the self conflict of Arohi and
Shefali knows that Arohi has once misunderstood Arjun and once it is
cleared, Arohi will double love Arjun. Shefali will push Arohi to it
but not in words and actions but by being a listener and get her on the
right wave. Her facial expression when Arohi said ''arjun is not my
lifepartner'' was equal to a smile in her heart with the thought''you
have already married her Arohi and you always wanted him to be.'' and
then when Arohi said she has not come for ''sudhane'' but for 'band
Again a sweet smile on that thought in
Shefali's expression knowing she will melt soon because if Arohi is not
a vindictive nature. She is stubborn and is thinking she is hurt but
Shefali knows 'once Arohi gets it right by herself.' She will stick
here only She is a beautiful character and she will only ''talk something to Arohi if Arohi is growing stubborn to infinity.''
Both Biji (the word of old wisdom) and
Shefali (the word of innocence) are sided to Arohi and she feels
complete with her strong character and soon apply those lessons she
learned from Biji and learned to''forgive and accept the truth'' for
the betterment of her own self and everybody!
I have a third version, will post later
