OK....My Ramayan for today's epi.....if there are any mistakes ...please bhul chuk maaf....coz I'm really sleepy and dunno what I have written....MY TAKE
....that was the key theme of the epi....I think
AANS scenes in the middle had me confused....Anyways....the leads need
rest....that's the chant I have playing in my head whenever I see AANS
scenes.......And that makes it bearable....I think......
!!!! Anyways....episode mein tho jhel liya...so why talk about them here...chaddo.....
Daadi....the Villain.....that seems to be the consensus of the
devils....Well I agree and don't too.....I feel what Daadi is trying to
do is making Geet and Maan move on with their lives and not keep
dwelling on the MC....which is a good thing....
But Grieving and
that too Grieving together of Parents who have lost their child is
important too....I know its a daily on a youth channel and the CVs can't
keep showing back to back sad episodes....But one more episode or
atleast half an episode where the couple shared their pains at the loss
of their beloved child would have helped.....
I liked Daadima's
strategy to make Maan and Geet think of things other than the recent
mishap in their lives....If everyone is morose and sad and keeps on
talking about the MC then how will Maan and Geet move on.....Someone has
to be stronger and start the process of healing and no way are they
going to be healed sitting around places where they will be reminded of
the baby.....So Daadimaa sending Maan off to office was good and Geet
too should most certainly join the office....And I hope the CVs are
moving that way
The first scene was full of pathos....DD was
wonderful in that scene....The sweet memories were breaking Geet from
inside....Her hollowness at the loss was unbearable
Maan's benumbed feeling was excellently portrayed by GC.....Maan is a
man who always gets things done and has never been helpless but this
loss and Geet's pain is making him feel powerless....And poor guy he
can't even express his pain because that will hurt Geet more....I loved
the way they slept yesterday on the hospital bed and I loved today's
scene even more....Both of them so much in pain and both trying to
comfort each other....Just that hand-holding was enough to show the bond
that these two shared......Beautiful....
gathering her troops aka Dev and NES to discuss the steps to be taken
for healing Maan and Geet was a bit too premature but was a good
indication of things to come....Basically....the office staff, Dev,
Daadi, NES are all going to try and get Geet and Maan's mind off the
MC....And I think Maan helping Geet to get out of depression is a step
for his healing too....So its all good.....But I have only one problem
why Dev???? He will make things worse and not better....and the best way
he can help Maan and Geet is LEAVE
OK, now Dev is gonna sing "Tu jahaan Jahaan chalega....Mera Saaya Saath Hooooga......"
....SO now he has got license to stalk from Daadi....Hey Babaji!!! Is Daadi ko Sadbuddhi Do.....
Aww....Geet sleeping in the baby's room was .....
has become numb......She cried yesterday.....the tears were not
stopping yday but today...her tears had dried and she couldn't cry no
more....this happens when you have cried a lot......DD was once again
excellent in this scene.......I liked it how she sat up when Dev came in
the room that was the only clue she gave to having registered his
presence other than that he was non-existent for her....Dev advising
Geet....I felt was somehow not right.....He has no rights....I think he
shud just stop intruding in their lives and just leave.......But SS was
excellent in this scene....I think I have said this umpteen times but
I'm loving SS as Dev.....Maan's indifference to Dev was a given......
himself that he cannot let his precious Geet suffer anymore was so
Maanlike....He always puts Geet's happiness as the foremost priority in
his life....Geet defines Maan....So he will do anything and I mean
anything for Geet!!!....I'm looking forward to see what all he will do
to make her happy .....
Dev still in the repentant saint mode ...I'm unable to figure this character out....I just want him to turn negative.....
....And then Maan and Geet to kick his A$$!!!
Daadi sending Maan to office was a good step....but it was too
early.....as I said in the beginning it would have been better if some
grieving was show......And I would have preferred Maan to have served
Geet breakfast and told her about him going to office before
Daadimaa asking Geet to eat breakfast and come down was good but the
shopping comment was very tasteless.....I dunno if it is because the
writers are men who feel that women feel happy only when they go
shopping or something like that ......but I felt that one woman asking
another woman who had lost a child just a day before was totally
would have preferred it if Daadimaa had said that they should go for a
walk or go to the temple even....just for a change of scenery but
So, der aaye durust.aaye....Daadi realised that the only person that Geet will respond to is Maan......
I liked the FBs that Geet and Maan both had.....She had flashbacks of
him talking about the baby and He had flashbacks of her talking about
the baby....Even in their own personal pain they are thinking about the
other....That was so poignant......
GC was excellent in the scene with the FBs in the office and Adi seeing
his Maan sir in pain was in tears too.....Perneet is a very good actor
and should be used more often.....
Well, Daadima's strategy to weigh down Maan with work so that he forgets
his pain kinda backfired when Maan was irritated with people walking in
with random files to be checked....And when Adi came then his full on
MSK avatar had Adi stuttering away to glory.....This scene was subtly
The precap looked interesting....I hope Geet gets back to work soon....or to doing something constructive with her life.....
My only problem with today's epi was the sudden shift from Grieving to
Healing....I wish a longer grieving period was shown or if that was not
feasible as Opti
suggested a message saying that a week or two had elapsed after the MC would have been better....
GC, DD, SS, Perneet excellent as usual
Daadi was good too.....
Writers....Please be careful of what you write...it can be downright chauvinistic.....so please think before you write....
Execution, Editing, Camerawork....excellent.....
