Loved yesterday's episode and everyone's take on it.
I am also one of those who was pleasantly surprised that Priya did not turn into full "bhashan" mode during the car scene. Her awesome joke with its "patle" punchline and the soft serious one liner about her parent's rights to choose her husband was enough to get her line across. Am I the only one loving this girl more with every episode?
As for Ayesha, wow! I was so happy to see that she actually thought about the impracticality of the match. It was nice to know that Ayesha is not quite as self absorbed as her mother's attitude towards seems to let on. And I loved her little argument with Priya. As Priya has already been established as the romantic, it was nice to see Ayesha adopt the other role. And it was interesting as well because it was the down to earth Priya who had the romantic views and airheady Ayesha who had the more practical view about the trainwreck that is Natasha's obsession with Karthik. Also, I like how even though she was filling out those websites about Priya on her mother's order, she seems to have a very different opinion, which she only expressed in front of Priya. She didn't mention Natasha's unsuitability to Karthik, or refuse to help her mother despite not liking how Priya'a marriage was being handled. It showed a sort of passivity in her. And now, I would love to know more about the favoured daughter, and the kind of pressure she probably has to deal with, and her inability to say what she thinks..
I am really glad they showed us this side of Ayesha, now if only they could do the same with Sudhir, it will be great. I was a little suspicious as to why he is blatantly rejecting proposals? Did he do the same when Priya was of a suppossedly of a more "marriageable" age?
Best part about this episode: Priya's ideal man. First runner up: Vikram and Ram's argument about the value of Piya. Second runner up: 33 years old comment.
