Okay, I'll admit it, I seriously thought Khushi was gonna try & commit suicide. I was expecting Payal to come running out. But.
LMAOOO. She's making jalebi. Super cute scene, and Sanaya did it well - I like how she's eating the jalebi with a glum face, and sniffling away.
Arnav's scene was next - & okay, as much I absolutely and utterly love him, there's no emotion on Barun's face. It comes out in his voice somewhat.. but he definitely needs to work on expression.
When he goes to eat breakfast, I almost had another giggle fit. Nothing like eating breakfast besides an Olympic sized swimming pool. *rolls eyes*
Anjali makes her appearance - I love her so much. She is definitely a sweetheart. I definitely like Anjali-Arnav scenes. But again, Barun is a bit monotonous. But kudos when Anjali says "Acha baba, I'm sorry" - something seems to click in him.. and he softens. I did like that.
The breakfast continues, and Arnav finally regains some emotions. LOL.
But he soon becomes a statue once more, and leaves, but not before agreeing to fulfill his sister's mannat.
Cut to Khushi, who's made a "Mt. Everest" of jalebi. *giggles* She's crying, eating & cooking. Her father comes, and it's definitely a touching scene. I must say, his accent is totally authentic - which is something the youngsters could pick up on.
Sanaya and Sanjay definitely brought the scene up to par.
Bua comes - she's my favourite, I swear. Each episode must have "Nand Ki Saur", and I die of laughter each time I hear it.
The neighbours come, and let's face it, I was expecting opposition - get out of this place, etc. But instead they applaud Khushi & her family for what they did. The only people not convinced were of course Bua & Garima. The old lady from the first epi tells Khushi to come to the dargah - so at least they explain why they're going. Generally I find shows just do things without explanation.
Cut back to Arnav, who's now in the car. A piece of advice I have for Barun: Get rid of the fake American accent! It does nothing for him!! I cringe - it's like the poor thing is forcing it out.
The Gupta's car breaks down, and it's a tense scene. Garima brings up a good point - that the neighbours of course supported them, after all it's not their daughter who's marriage got ruined. Kudos to Deepali - she's definitely got the supportive sister down pat.
Arnav's car passes Khushi's. *rolls eyes* Of course it had to happen.
Everyone arrives at the dargah. The girls walk off.. and ladies & gentlemen: the first dupatta scene. *shakes head* Reminded of an Ekta serial in that moment.
Barun did pull it off though..
The sufi song starts: it's beautiful to hear! One thing I loved watching, the obvious difference b/w our couple. Khushi loves the religious stuff, Arnav cringes and ignores as much as he can. I loved how he flinched every time that brush thingy touched him. Sho cute!!
& the tying of the string - it could have been a lot better I believe. Ah well. More dargah scenes to come I hope?
Khushi makes me laugh - I love how she actually talks to God. Supremely cute - Sanaya seems to be getting comfortable.. I like that.
She does it again when she buys a mannat lock. & then they meet...
I'll give Sanaya & Barun this - they work well together, but expressions need to really be worked on. I feel as if though they're both thinking of other people when they shoot these scenes.. something doesn't sit right.
& when Arnav tells her to throw the key away, the mantra comes into play: Darti hai, par karti hai.
Khushi, who asked God to see him once again, gets her wish straight away. What to do now? She decides to yell at him. However, her shoe slips off, and she's painfully trying to reach him.. which means she wasn't going to hit him with the chappal at all. Hmph - that would have been interesting.
The scene that unfolds was quite weird.. I just felt that Khushi trying to re-gain her breath was a lil' out of place, but Arnav definitely takes advantage of it, and decides to become the torturer again.
All in all, it was an interesting episode.
It's only epi 3, so comfort factor will happen within a few weeks.
See y'all soon.
