Today's episode was a good one..No AnYa today, but no reason to get all disappointed since Deepu has finally moved from denial phase from acceptance phase!!
Loonies continue to be absurd, no surprises there..
Monday promises to bring more family drama with it, I am just hoping we will at least get a decent AnYa scene somewhere in between..Daadi continues to wave her magic wand:
Daadi take a bow..
You have fixed this seemingly impossible problem by arranging for a single eaves-dropping session..
Seriously how awesome is she??
She continues to knock some hard truths into Deepu..Loved how she said Navya's mistake wasn't that she fell in love, it was that she let her fear get the best out of her and lied to her family..But did such a small mistake deserve such a severe punishment?? How could her parents' decision be right if it was draining her life out of happiness and joy??
So she loved someone, she didn't do so knowingly or intentionally..Kudos to Daadi for saying "Main kahan keh rahi hoon ki tu sanskaron ko bhul ja, main toh bas je kehrahi hoon ke badle zamane ke saath unhi sansakoron ko bhi badal"
Finally Deepu & Meeta have realized that they can't sacrifice their child's happiness for baseless rules and regulations..They have realized that they ought to have faith in their own upbringing, after all their daughter has proved herself by sacrificing her love for their sake, all the while putting up a brave front when she was crumbling inside..
As Daadi implied, the idea is to strike the perfect balance between nayi soch and sanskars, not to let one completely overwhelm the other..My poor baby is an outcast now??:
Anant baba is still in zombie mode, roaming around the loonie quilla like a bhoot..
He looked so lifeless when he came to the dining table..Finally, creepy baba is back in his element..He glared, gulped, glared some more between each sentence he uttered or rather spewed out pure rubbish..
He told Anant that if he thought his rebellion would melt his creepy family then he was wrong, it was only solidifying their decision..What more could you expect out of these people anyway?? If they see their kid is sad and frustrated because of their decision then it somehow proves that their decision was right?? What kind of twisted logic is that??
Creepy baba has now told Anant that he has take his meals alone in his room if he continues to throw tantrums..
Anant once again floored me with his super sensible behaviour..
He asked baba if he could trust baba's decisions all his life blindly then why can't baba show faith in him for once?? Baba stared and gulped some more,Anant really had put him in a tight spot after all..
Since he keeps droning about how Anant is his adarsh pota
and he is the one who can be his uttaradhikari
then why wasn't he able to trust Anant's judgement now?? Much to my dismay angry papa interrupted in between..He screamed about how Anant has become a shameless wonder, how his behaviour is super inappropriate, blah blah blah..
Kya kya namoone hai is phamily
mein?? This man is in serious need of anger management classes, or better yet, a frontal lobectomy!! Exactly why is he so angry all the freaking time??Papa-Dost Deepu:
Finally the much awaited "nayi soch" plays out..I know we have gotten bits and pieces of nayi soch here and there but Deepu's approval and the reasons behind his approval were so refreshingly appropriate..The whole scene between Deepu-Navya reminded me why I got hooked to this show in the first place..It was the concept of bridging the generation gap between today's youth and parents that compelled me to sit down to watch the first episode..
(It was another thing I flatlined after seeing the very first AnYa scene and then there was no looking back!
)The scene started with Deepu crying in his room and Navya catching him in the act..Deepu is such an adorable crier, no I haven't gotten bonkers but he really does look like a huge teddy bear who you just to want to hug when he is crying like that..
So Navya does just that, and he cries some more..Deepu hun you are giving serious competition to our Lover Boy when it comes to the title of "which male shed the most tear in Navya?
Anyway after shedding a few bucketful of tears Deepu starts talking with his daughter..He accepts that the predominant reason behind his anger was his fear that Navya would get hurt in all this pyaar
business, the fear that she was too innocent and it was so easy for someone to take advantage of her was what made him to livid with rage..Loved how he said "Tumhe unglee pakar kar chal na toh sikha diya, lekin tumhara haat chorne me aaj bhi dar lagta hai"
..I loved how the writers wrote this particular bit..They hit so many realistic issues through this one scene..Deepu really let down all his guards today and confessed that his insecurity about her safety got the better out of him..And hey, over-protectiveness and parents go hand in hand after all!!
Moreover, he confessed that there was nothing wrong in falling in love before marriage, if there was anything wrong then it was how soceity stigmatizes the whole concept of love before marriage..
So true really!! This is such a real problem, till date falling in love before marriage is looked down upon in most families, and so many real life AnYa's have had to fight this arduous battle for their love, some succeeded and some sadly didn't..Chalo on to the scene, next came my absolute favourite part of the episode..Deepu said if kids can trust their parents' decison blindly, then why can't parents show some faith in their upbringing and trust their kids' choice??
Such a hard hitting question, isn't it?? I hope any parent watching this show with grown-up kids does consider this question..Moving on, Deepu maha-adorably asks Navya to consider him as a friend and then asks her whether she is ready to spend her whole life with Anant..Navya says yes and the whole family seems very happy..Guys thats one half of the battle won already!!
I am so happy how the entire approval part wasn't melodramatic..It was so very sweet, and realistic..Kudos to the CVs!!Precap:
Deepu puts the first nail in his coffin by telling angry papa he is the "Kanpur wala Deepak, Navya's dad"..Now angry papa will have plenty of time to sharpen his fangs and claws before Deepu arrived at the loonie quilla..Randome musings:?
1)Lesson learned from today's episode:Reverse psychology always works!!
Navya said "I don't want Anant's LOWE" and Deepu-Meeta jump in to say "You must have Anant's LOWE"..
2)Angry Papa totally had a mini seizure when he was barking at Anant..His whole frame was shaking, literally!!
3)Daadi, Deepu is not "Jawan"
..If he is Jawan
, what is Navya?? An infant??
4)No AnYa for two consecutive episodes, don't test out patience anymore CVs!!
That's all from moi, as always likes/comments much appreciated..
