Welcome to the new writers!
Hope you do a good job :P
The epi was really good in its dramatic element; execution as well as dialogue.
It moved the story at a good pace and yet was able to maintain the element of suspense, at least a bit.
Lets do a bit detailing shall we?
I feel like it today :)
The episode starts with Maan searching for night-suit- a source of comfort for him..for all of us,right? LOL...finally- we forget the day's work and get to sleep. Change our clothes and slip into bed to have a peaceful night of sleep.
Maan is searching for that comfort which Geet comes and gives to him.
She says it's not there where he's looking- he's looking in the wrong place and she gives it to him.
At night- We see the beloved moon...and maan and geet are trying to sleep.
Unable to communicate; unable to sleep- peace the furthest thing from their mind.
"tumhe sorry kehne ki koi zaroorat nahi hai"
He has his arms crossed- again-he's going through his personal hell and refuses to talk. Closing everything in while in that tear of Geet- she's let it out.
A tear falls from Geet's eyes as she's thinking of what she's hiding from maan. And how he's angry- not at her- but FOR her- as she shortly writes in her note to him.
They look at each other- wanting to comfort each other and seeking comfort from each other...but are unable to...
She takes the initiative of writing that note to Maan and clearing it up.
she tells him all she can. She tells him about Dadi's moch and why she had to do what she was going to. She tells him everything save that one truth that is standing tall between them.
Call me crazy but today's epi- I wanted to look at symbolism after a long time that's why I found it peppered with it.
Geet took out maan's clothes already for him. She firstly, didn't want him troubled even a teensy-weensy bit as she feels she's already troubled him enough. what with hiding all this from him
Also, reminds me of how wives or mothers used to clothe their warrior husbands/sons before going into battle- which is what the succeeding days are going to be for maan and geet.
( I know this is far-fetched :P)
She has given him armour(so to say) so that he can cope with the problems that will soon fall on them thanks to Dev..maybe even dadi.
Plus- She is going to tell him the truth soon- so he needs to remember that she loves him- that she was trying to protect him which is why she didn't tell him.
OF course- he doesn't find his wallet?Hanky? inside-
So he opens the cupboard and finds the notes pasted on the door.
She says she knows that he wouldn't want anyone even near her- that would hurt her- be it a BEE, or DEV
and with his sad, gloomy face he writes back to her..
Trivial incident but Geet forgot paranthas that Dadi told her to make- her alignment with maan is clear :)
Anwesha comes and asks Geet if she's made bfast for dev as well..forgetting so simplistically what happened to her... and later apologizes.
Aah...MAan has a secret admirer...the stalker becomes the stalkee..gets a call from this guy on office phone as well as cell-phone..
Wants to meet the delightful maan in person.
I'm wondering- this person wants only MAAN to see the Dev-Geet pic- which is why insisting on a personal meeting, right?
or is it just a trivial passing detail..
Maan isn't interested in anything about Dev-doesn't have so much time..but if it concerns Geet...
he smiles a chhoti si smile at her when Annie informs him that Geet has made this pasta for him with so much love.
What I didn't like was that he cannot talk to Geet because he feels guilty and angry at everything else...and himself..but why can he talk to Dadi? when Dadi was the one who told him to let dev stay?
And then the call where he blasts Mr sharma
He hates lies. he should have been told.. baat chupane se bigad jaati hai.
agar u had told me- i would have been momentary angry..i wouldn't have felt betrayed...
2 things beyond the obvious reference to him getting angry when Geet tells him-
Of course a sign that when Geet tells him- he'll be momentarily angry-
Not at her for betraying him- but because she had to do this for HIS sake.
this links to my second point-
Maan has told geet a lot of times that he is only maan for her. Not anyone else. While Maan Singh Khurana gets angry with everyone outside..where Geet is concerned, his anger is directed within.
While I agree maan is portrayed as the man who can do no wrong- he sees Geet as the woman who cannot- so that even if she does something wrong- he forgives her easily..because he empathises..and loves.
For Geet as well- she adores him. She puts up with his anger and his moods- knowing that she will forgive him, knowing that if needs be, he'd do the same for her.
Which is why I thought the pre marriage nok-jhoks were important in developing equality and mutuality in their relationship. Even their IP track MU.
she knows it's her fault to HIDE from him...although she did it for her reasons..now she feels guilty
anyway stalker calls
Maan calms down instantly
The caller says- he has info abt dev and geet.
he wonders what is it between dev and geet that he didn't know...
The general public in show world will react positively and accept Dev's 'reformation' as he saved maan's life.
Maan doesn't know and annie hopes all will be cool with time.
MY GOD arjun looks v scary..ROFL
HE has a new plan now eh?
to tell maan about who saved him?
ITs so weird that Arjun and Geet are on the same side..haha
Both maan and Arjun have anger in their hearts...will they be on the same side against dev?
He's angry with whatever's happening in the house
Angry with himself- he can't do anything for her.
he knows ki with dev around she has to do so much in pain and he can't see her in pain..
Even without knowing the truth, Maan has aptly described Geet's state of mind
Barry - *jhapkisses*
oh and I wish we could have something like this from maan- "tum kitni achhi ho geet"
Please...pretty pleasE??*blush blush*
BTW,whose handwriting was it? Mine's better! :P
No matter what, the end of the note says "tumhara maan"
GEET ka MAAN...and GEET ka MAAN will he stay always.
So see..this is good. there is an underlying thread of positivity in the epi today
aah the almost evil daadi comes back..wants to keep the baby safe haan??
SELFISH is what she is..THAT's ALL
Jab mann kiya toh apni baat manwali and jab nahi toh change karwali.
I swear- she's fickle.
wants to keep the khurana heir safe so she wants Geet out of stress.
but can't throw dev out also. So she'll definitely accept her decision of telling maan immediately...before someone else does
GOOD Geet remembered the dialogue where she was told by dadi not to let any third person come in their relationship.
Ironic how Dadi had intervened here..but now- Geet has taken the reigns of their relationship once more.
Dev hears that...but his expression...was that of shock...and what else?
He will want to leave.and Geet and Dev will interact again....
And maan will see their interaction..not hear..see...and the photo
What I saw in his face was anger at Dev...he is not jealous or insecure. he feels Geet is hiding something. There is something about Geet that he doesn't know and that is what troubles him.
..he doesn't doubt Geet or anything...
I don't think..
I wouldn't want him too..considering inka trust etc itna dikhaya and suddenly with 1 photo..it all turns..
so i hope the writers will be careful here...
I guess this could be a kind of memory lapse as he's out of joint with what others know..he doesn't :))
alright- I guess that is it!
I liked the episode..
i'd give it an 9/10 :))
love to all!
@ALL- something from the heart- I think it might suit geet too
What is it that you want- you have everything..
it is love i want, oh go..only love that i need
someone to hold and someone to cry with
someone to whisper to and someone to play with
someone who understands and forgives
someone who will tell me what troubles them,
someone who'd trust me enough to share
someone loving, not cunning
someone to only love and care
let me be who I am,
don't change me
for I'm happy with myself,
I used to be alone, not lonely
then i felt lonely even when i was not alone
there was no connection, there was no attention
there was no helping hand and no healing touch
where are those days when I laughed and hugged all I met?
where are those days when I laughed and loved?
Now all I can do is cry in solitude,
wondering where those days are gone...
wondering if they'll come back again
sadness is familiar to me, but I seek the treasure
the treasure that lives with me..within me..
i still wait for that laughter to ring again
that will remind of who I was and who I am
