LOL they've played that fast version of the BALH tune previously also but I forgot to mention it to you that day...they were playing it in the bg of the phone scene on Tuesday...lol...but yeah today it was clearer...also in the end they played the sad version..."bade SACCHE lagte hain...soonapan, veerane...something something"...Amazing how Kekta knows how these generic sad versions of the song will fit EVERY sad situation b/w RP later on...LOLL Yeah I know, I heard it in the last ep too but forgot to mention it...I didn't catch the lyrics of the sad version but Ekta's music team sure knows how to milk a song for all its worth LOL

Nice epi honestly...I wasn't really pained by any scene...even though the bits with Nuts were quite creepy as usual...this chick belongs in a mental institution, no joke...how is she being allowed to roam free with normal public? *shudders* I know, right? And in that scene where she is packing her bags, she didn't say a single word and ended up coming off creepier than Dracula...*shudders*
[/QUOTE



[QUOTE=priya.nair]

The Bold Talks:  I was sad to see that there was no more alone convo between Priya and Ram as I hoped that there was more on that. Shipra started her usual showoff and I am sure most people must have tuned out but what I loved was the expressions that kept playing off on the faces with no one really agreeing or disagreeing verballyI liked that scene as well - and I do agree that Niharika had some good expressions and reactions to Shipra's words...its just a shame that Niharika looks like Ram's third sister...

However what I did not understand why he had to let all the meeting take place if he wanted his sister to be married before him. I think this was an insult to Ram and his family.On the other hand for Ram to acknowledge his thoughts coming into this and accept his mistake wah wah . Exactly - Karthik should have avoided the meeting altogether, especially since he and Priya had discussed it  the day before. I guess things happened so fast he was unable to stop it. I did like that Ram was man enough to admit his mistakes and do it so honestly and purely rather than throw an ego fit for no reason. 

Nuts MIA :Is it just me that I don't understand Nuts and what she is trying to emote . With such top actors this actress seem to not fit in as I always feel she has a weird look on her face and cannot decipher it to be happy or sad or in love. Was this a blooper if the door was behind Ram and Ram was talking how did no one see Nuts leaving? Why is Niharika so hell bent on getting Nuts married asap. Somehow I feel she only thinks of her secretary daughter and son as her own. I don't get Nuts at all. She seems to be so single-minded but I can't imagine her as this important fashion designer if all she does is run when things don't go her way. Temperamental, I understand, but this is just psychotic behaviour. 

Maybe Shipra did have a point on Priya not taking marriage seriously but that did not mean that this situation was Priya's fault. See, I can understand Shipra's point in principle. But my issue with it is twofold: 1. How do we know that Priya didn't take marriage seriously in the past? Sure, she wasn't interested in being some supermodel but its not as if she deliberately would sabotage her own future. She has said many times that I will marry whoever "Papa" will find for me. So, 2) why the hell hasn't Papa or Shipra for that matter found anyone for her until now? I found it interesting that in yesterday's ep she specifically said "Papa" and not "I will marry anyone my parents will find for me", knowing perhaps that Papa will not force her into looking at unsuitable people just to be married. I understand Shipra's frustration that at this age, Priya may not get a rajkumar who ticks all the boxes and compromises may have to be made, but why does that give her the right to demean her daughter? She is not doing anything to help her - apart from surfing the net for widowers ; if Shipra simply tried to understand things from Priya's perspective, they could have a much better relationship. And if her anger is with God, then go shout at God, na LOL why take it out on poor Priya whose only fault is that she does not want to marry for the sake of getting married?

@avivakirk - hey Aviva! Agree with your post completely...I would give this episode an 8 also.

Yes this weeks episode was having all the right combo of progress in story, great plot, superb acting , wonderful family bonding and even better emotional expressions of the main leads and to a lesser extent other actors too. Totally agree - all apart from Nuts did an excellent job. Even Shipra, whose actions I hated, did not annoy me as much with her acting
 
Nuts is now driving me nuts with hardly anything worthwhile to say about her, wheras Karthik seem to the next pillar of strenght for Priya after her Dad. Kudos to him for understanding her. I actually prefer Karthik to Sudhir as at least Karthik seems to have the backbone to take a decision like that. After all, it is his life he is putting on hold. What does Sudhir do apart from fetch groceries and eat?
 
The chemistry of RaYa is very much palpable leaving us yearning for their marriage to happen. Waiting for that beautiful flow of the brook akin to the hidden feelings and longings  to flow like a stream called love.

Awww, so cute! Waiting for that moment too...

The 16th June episode showed us that Ram's ego isn't so big that he can't apologise when he's in the wrong. I also liked that Karthik stood up for his sister, but sad that the fact that she's not married was again raised in front of people who were practically strangers to her. I also liked her dialogue when she said that can't a woman be single if she wants to. 
  
Ram trying to pacify Nutz and getting frustrated that he's not getting through to her...was a natural scene, her mom and sister somehow seem more like the type who place status above Nutz.
 
While Shipra seems selfish, I feel that its her frustration and guilt at not being able to get Priya married that is causing her outburst. She's loud but I think that's how the creatives have envisioned her character.
 
The last scene, thank God for Vikram and his practical sense. The background music and lyrics suited the mood and while Ram hates the rain and Priya loves the rain, both are similar in ways that are important. They both love their families and I guess this love for their siblings is what will bring about Ram and Priya's marriage.

Hi Suganthi. I agree with much of your post, especially the points above. 

@silvermoonlight - hi! I agree, Karthik should have taken Ram aside and not blurted out the whole thing in front of everyone. 

@kishpi - I feel much the same about these two characters. Shipra's motivations at least I can understand, but Nuts is just such a mystery, and not one that I am particularly interested in...

@Mru - hey Mru. Yeah, the timing of Karthik's declaration was a little off. I wonder if that was his real reason because if you noticed, he first mentioned the whole "standing on my own feet thing" and when he saw that it wasn't working, and Shipra was saying "that's not reason enough", he quickly came out with the reason of Priya. I'm not saying that he wasn't genuine in his love for Priya; just that it was a weird time to declare so.

Good analysis, Vasu ( I am taking the liberty to call you that! Smile). Of course you can, roomani!


I liked Kartik for standing up for himself and his family but why then did he not speak up earlier?  If he wanted to "settle" his sister before his marriage, why did he even allow the Kapoor family to come home with the proposal? Ermm It looked to me that his thoughts on Priya were almost the effect of Ram's offer; either his conscience was stung because he did not think of his sister or he just needed more time before actually tying the knot...to prove himself worthy and he used his sister as the reason. Confused I really felt for Priya, she was in a most uncomfortable situation at that time as her tears indicated! That's interesting - that his conscience was pricked by Ram's obvious love for his sister. But from what I have seen of Karthik so far, he is still the only person ((I refuse to count useless Sudhir) who is 100% committed to Priya and understands her like no other. 


@Anamika - hey Anu, I'm liking the show more and more as well. It is generally quite fast paced and not too draggy, so I'm hoping it continues this way and we get to see the issue of RP's marriage soon, even it is is the end of next week. 

@vidusha - hi. thanks for liking!

@Preeti - The Karthik-Priya scene was my favourite too; just the fact that it was so real really blew me away. In other shows there would be this mahaan speech about daughters being as good as sons and blah blah blah, but all Priya said was "so what? I do what I do because it's my family, because its my duty". It didn't seem like the typical self-sacrificial type of lady who wants to be considered mahaan. She acknowledged that she too wanted to get married but it was not a priority and she wasn't going to go around parading her unmarried-ness as a point on which to garner sympathy. And again, I agree with you on Shipra - she should at the very least respect Priya's decisions even if she does not like or understand them. If she respected that about Priya, I would actually not mind her so much. 

@Maz - hi! Don't be a silent lurker LOL so what if we all discuss the same thing, everyone has their angle on things and that's what makes these discussions - and life - so interesting. 

As far as we know, Sudhir and Shipra do nothing, and everyone lives off Priya's earnings. I want to know if Priya does more than teach at TOEFELs classes because I can't imagine being able to sustain a family of five on one person's salary. Maybe Karthik helps out, or will start helping out now that he has a new job?

@shreya - you're welcome, lol. I have a habit of making long, impassioned speeches about  things I like and don't like (I could be a Kekta mahaan-type bhashan devi for sure LOL) but I am so glad and surprised that you guys actually find my ramblings interesting and worth discussing LOL to be honest it's nice to be amongst people who have decent and intelligible thoughts and can express them in more than emoticons and grunts LOL

Loved your analysis and I agree with everything so there is nothing more to say LOL

Im reading ur analysis 4 the very 1st tym n very well written Vasu (hope u dont mind me calling u directly Embarrassed)
 
it was a touchy n sensitive epi like u mentioned n i liked it
 
it always cant be hilarious or sizzling ...
 
Ram sniffing the water was funny though n so was karthik calling nutts nutty ... way 2 go u defo r Priya's bro in bravery ROFL
 
Shipra was too much at the start... some1 tape her mouth wiv duck tape plzzz
her breakdown after ... i dunno i tried to understand her yet her reasons 4 insulting Priya arent good enough ... if she is upset wiv God then try to be that extra nice to ur own daughter
 
when Vikram said to Ram like u Priya would also want a man who would understand her etc ... i was praying some bells would ring like i could be that man... but im being to hasty i guess
 
the last last scene was so surreal... she in the rain... bare footed on the grass n then him closing that window... just like the promo
 
London... r drug addicts only found in London?? there has to be something more than that

Nice post! 'been reading your takes this week...and every time find myself too late to post any reply cos everyone has already completely dissected all bits of the episode, and there is nothing more to say!..lol..

I agree with you about Shipra...I don't get it either...I haven't seen the first few episodes of BALH...but what do Priya's parents actually do/did for a living?..is it only Priya's income with which they live on?..I don't understand why everything has to be dumped on her...


@Mrubee...don't agree about Karthik..Why didn't karthik think of this before Ram's family came over with the proposal?  I think it's because he was pondering over the situation..and things happened too fast around him..he didn't expect psycho Natasha to go on a wrist slitting spree and consequently to be made to get married so soon..he probably always wanted his sister to be settled and happy before he thinks of his own wedding..


@nureat01...totally agree about Nuts!...she is mentally ill no doubt!...that is definitely not just stubbornness..


heyaa Mazzy.. so finally you post .. hehehe

Hmm.. on Karthik .. It might have been so that he always wanted Priya to get married before him. But he hasn't been vocal about it, or at least it wasn't shown or implied.  The timing was off for me. Maybe the scene was set up in such a way that Ram talks about his sister and then Karthik talks about his sister...  so it seems like a sibling love competition.

We will find out soon, if he uses the sister card again whenever Ram talks about Nuts .. hehe

Ohh.. and loved the way Priya was walking on the lawn, barefeet. It can be very soothing, at least it is for me, .. and of course the little play on the first promo of rain ...

Oh I loveddd that bit too, Mru! Really simple and so wonderful...I agree it's a very soothing thing...and I loved that they showed it like this...Priya in a contemplative mood just taking a walk to soothe her mind...you can tell how much she enjoys nature and greenery too...

And yes they tied in the first rain promo wonderfully...I'd say the entire epi suddenly upped the quality level of BALH episLOL...barring the creepiness of Nuts...otherwise I felt the way the scenes were conceived and directed...there is definitely a marked improvement in quality.

@psawyer: yep your ramblings are fun to read!..hehe... sure will post more often :)

@Priya's parents..ohh alright..it seems like a loophole in the story...just to portray her as the one with all the responsibility...

@bold- I think it was to be assumed in his resigned attitude the night before they visit...saying something like 'so they are coming home tom?'..etc.. And also maybe that's why the first time Priya spoke to him about Natasha...he tried to underplay his feelings...and not show his eagerness to get married..

And as to him talking about this issue after Ram discusses the factories thing... maybe he was just waiting for some proper conversation to begin...and just being polite...if Karthik had spoken first...surely Ram would have been irritated a little...

Errr...I don't know why I am defending Karthik so much also...LOL

@Priya walking on wet grass...ooo yeah that is a very relaxing feeling...and it was a nice contrast to Ram closing the windows..

Maybe Karthik was in a classic *Phas Gaya Re Karthik* mode, haha.. I wouldn't blame him considering what Nuts is..

I hated the way he brought his sister in his marriage talks and turned into a *what a cool brother * at the expense of his sister!!! It may have been done unintentionally but still that is the way it was. He highlighted his sister's *not being married* in the conversation instead of highlighting * his future wife's nuttiness* and walked away with all the sympathy and respect !!!

Mazzy, you defend Karthik  and errr.. I will skewer him  ... hahaha ..
