Helloo Nissar, Maan Singh, Barry, CVs – good build up in tension but viewers patience on the wedding is running extremely low. Look out ! Checking out the posts on FB and elsewhere, ur ears must be burning. Don't drag it too far.
Geet unwilling to forget NT in hospital and the haadsa that took place earlier. But loved the way Dadi shows them the logic behind NT's deed and encouraging Maaneet not to let NT win by stopping the wedding. After talking to her Maaneet feel better and Maan tells Geet that the wedding will take place today with full rasmo-rivaaj.
Arjun tells NT that he's gonna be away for a while to keep his promise to her of destroying MSK. He's now willing to go any length by any means.
Loved this scene :-D
Loved the way she called his bluff…jahan barf pad sakti hai wahan kuch bhi ho sakta hai. But she finally tunes in to his fear/discomfort. Maaneet want to see each other happy for this wedding. Yikes, Maan even got scared when Geet said, mein aapse shaadi nahi kar sakti.. So he confesses that in his life, sabse ehem for him is Geet, even above his personal happiness.
But Geet cant accept that coz she wants to see her Maan happy. So he says he'll try to keep his happiness in mind. But an unconvinced Geet asks him to promise that he will keep his happiness foremost. So he promises to try and Geet asks him to honestly keep his promise about his happiness.
Maan happiness is Geet…his foremost happiness. So his promise to Geet is just reiterating what he's already decided upon … Geet, his happiness, his koshish, his vaada….all rolled in one. Am I stupid or did Maan spin his words so well (courtesy Barry) that he didn't really change his mission….lol … but it made Geet happy feeling that she got him to promise….lol .
I just melted when Maan said 'Geet, tum dono jaldi aa jaana' … aahhhhh ! And the hug…hayee mein mar jawaan !
Loved the banter between Tasha n Pinki. NE slinks off to the hospital. Who will take Geet back to the parlor ? Toss a coin.
Why is Geet alone at the most important rasm of her life – mehendi ? Why was it at the parlor and not in the mansion ?
What am I missing here ? Drawing a parallel with her first wedding ?
NE turns selfish and heads straight to the hospital. Arjun sees her and tries to avoid her. But she catches up and asks abt NT.
So Arjun advises her to head back to the wedding. He pushes her off saying NT needs him. Once inside with NT his emotions are in a turmoil…shud he push off NE , did he do right, but NE is MSK's sister, but why is it so hard to push her off.
NE on the other hand wants to be near him to give him support. But how can she desert her 'bhai' knowing fully well that Geet's life is in danger after multiple attempts and she cannot be alone. D'uh NE, u've proven ur lack of intelligence.
Back at the mansion, Maan comes down the stairs looking sharp in his sherwani and touches Dadi's feet for her blessings. Dadi is so happy to see her Prince pota…kisi ki nazar naa lage.
At the parlor Geet looks breath takingly resplendent in her bridal attire. Even the parlor attendant is stunned by her beauty. But Geet finds out that she's been deserted by NE, Tasha n Pinky and is stuck there.
Maan is shocked to see Tasha n Pinki back at the mansion….but is told that NE is bringing Geet. It's past 5pm and the roads are blocked. Maan tries to call Geet on her mobile …but the mobile is with Pinki. Dadi advises him to call NE. He calls NE to talk to Geet. NE panicks and lies thru her teeth. NE zimmedari naam ki koi cheez hoti hai….but NE has sold herself to the devil of selfishness. Arjun overhears. Out come the crocodile tears as Arjun says, NE don't go, don't leave me alone.
Arjun's turned into Jyo's Baazigar.
How long will Arjun's Baazigar last. When the black queen arrived, the black knight attained his true colors (?)…and is now charging towards his white pawn, NE. Will he be successful in his mission of checkmating the white king with his pawn or will his usool rear its head ?
Brij has entered the mansion, which tells us that Maan's security system and his security team are kaput ! One good thing is that at least Geet is far away at the parlor. But what does this bode for the actual wedding ?
I want Brij to raise his gun and Dev to suddenly barge in and take the bullet. I can't trust Arjun anymore. His turn to eat crow will come later….if he decides to backtrack from his Baazigar role.
So now how will Maan reach Geet ? Word's just come in that Maan and his ghodi have been taking lessons from the RCMP on how to cut thru traffic and blocked roads and reach Geet.
After Pari's exit, Maan had taunted Geet….if she believed in fairy tales, and expected her prince to come on horseback and ask for her hand in marriage. Dream on, he'd said. Ain't gonna happen. Oh, how the tables are turning. Looks like the only way to get his princess in the shaadi ka mandap is to bring her back on his horse.
Maan Singh Khurana, Delhi's most eligible bachelor, riding out on his ghodi to bring back his bride. A scene worth watching ! If this happens on Monday, TRPs will be hitting the roof. Let's wait and watch…if our hypothesis holds any water.
Nissar – need u back in the driver's seat for this.
Gurmeet, Drashti – Fabulous performances. You both look absolutely gorgeous in the wedding attire.
NE – u r oh so dead !
Arjun – no comment

Vrush that was very well done. And I just realized I posted my reservation before I read your words and now its just going to be an echo. :)
To me GHSP was about the story of this girl who wanted to fight for herself and her child against norms of the society and lead similar lives like the millions of us out there. Yes, it had its flavor of romance which did make me go "ooh and ahh" and drama which had me nailbiting, but the storytelling that had me hooked everyday promptly at 12.00pm/11.00am (EST) was "Will Geet be able to escape brij?", "How will Maan react when he finds out Geet is pregnant?", "What will happen when Geet finds out Dev is Maan's brother?" and "What will happen when Maan finds out Dev is the culprit?" and it stopped after that.
My dearest friends, especially Marsha wants me back on the Den, writing and discussing the show. Personal issues aside I wonder, does the story have the same flavor to offer now that it did 5 months ago? Jaya has opened her views with the lines from "Finding Forrester", which are very apt. As much writing and re-writing that perhaps went into the show in the very beginning is obviously thought of as a waste of time now, for the story speaks for itself.
When the show started, it offered us something different. Starone to the best of my knowledge has only taken bets with Youth based shows. This was the first time they began with a family oriented theme, but something for every youth to think about. It offered us glimpses of the world out there and how reality is not always about "Namesake doctors pretending to romance in stairwells". One could acknowledge the amount of effort and thought process that went into some classic scenes
Some classics that will stand out to me time immemorial
1) Meeting Dev for the very first time'
2) The conversation between Geet and her mother about how woman's duty is to get married and take care of her family
3) The classic rescue from the river
4) Revelation of Naintara and Dev's true colors
5) Geet being abandoned at the airport and the following scenes of the painful reminders of the past
6) The famous Oye's thirst of blood for "Purkhon ki izzat" and the cottage scene that followed
7) The first time Maan and Geet meet as Boss and Secretary and Geet goes "Maan" before correcting to "Maan Sir".
8) Hum tum scenes
9) The response from Geet looking for comfort post Kurbaan Hua sequence when she holds Maan's hand
10) The rain hug scene
11) The glimpses of Maan Singh Khurana's past in the darkroom
12) Geet's remembrance of her family and hurt and Maan consoling her during her revisit to HP.
Actually as I write, I realize that there are innumerable times when I have loved this show for the way the screenplay etched out the details of human emotions, responses and behavior. I am not a screenplay writer, so my understanding and appreciation of this show is purely based on how well I can connect to what is being shown on screen. And I connected very well till the day Geet realized Dev is Maan's brother. I was able to put myself in Geet's shoes till that day and I could see myself behaving the way she behaved, which made me feel yes the story was very well written.
But like all good things come to an end, the story went down from then onwards. Vrush says the revelation of Dev's truth was impactful and rushed. I agree, it was rushed but I needed it to be much more impactful, considering the premise of the show was Dev cheating Geet. Maan's response to Dev's betrayal, very very indifferent and if anything aloof, something that feels very unrealistic. The flying in and out of all the different cameo roles, especially Yash, the one with a load of potential makes you wonder what runs in the mind of these writers? Do they have a story or do they just make it up some concoction along the way. The story moved from being about Geet to being about Maan Singh Khurana and how great, ruthless and passionate he is. It became about "Trips, falls, catch, eyelock and Mahiii". And today its about some wedding and the details of the wedding, which frankly I don't care much about.
I am not going to comment about how they could have modified the storyline or how they need to gather the much required TRPs, but I would just say this'a little bit of thought process on how the show managed attract the attention of everyone of us out there, would give the screenplay writers "food for thought" about what they delivered yesterday and what they are doling out today!
Ok just read; I am supposed to comment on possible storylines to focus: Quick thots:
1) I agree, Geet wants to live a normal life, get married and have a family and all. But I would think that she would be at first interested in serving Dev and Naintara their desserts.
2) What happened to Dev? Is he not more important in this story about Geet than Mr. Maan Singh Khurana?? You could always replace the actor and work on Dev and how he seeks revenge from the almighty Khurana.
3) What about Vicky Khurana? Does he have no idea that the almighty is getting married or that the other Khurana is MIA?
4) Why is Almighty Khurana being made an almightly when he is not one? Some mention of a Sameera keeps happening only to be shoved under the carpet again.
5) Finally, you had some presence of mind bringing "Oye" back, but now you have made him a mere pawn to be thwarted by the almighty. "Oye" is capable of much more than that!!
6) What about Mr. Daarji? Does he even have an idea what Oye is upto? And the rest of the family? Surely some path crossing would be more interesting that some "Shelia ki Jawani" performance!!
That said last but not the least, I have said this in the past in one of Bri's Halla Bol threads: When the show was being advertised they began with "Geet: someone whom every family would be proud to have as a daughter, every woman would aspire to be'.." and I am sorry that there has not been much justification for those tag lines!!
I got a whiff of freshness from the bakery
Walked up and eyed the creme brulle
But settled for a freshly brewed coffee
Got served dishwater with sugar in a cup and tray
