I know you are used to writing for an audience that enjoys various types of kitchen comedy and drama (let's make dhoklas into smiley faces and the mystery of who put the extra mirch in the dal), and appreciate the acting skills of wooden planks and quivering pieces of jell-woh. But that is not the audience for IPK. We demand a little progress, not just in story line but character emotional realization wise.
We have tuned in to watch SaRun who are totally capable to deliver a comedy, drama and anything else your mature brain can come up with. Just after I complimented the show for keeping the characters consistent, you give this crap-a-delic episode.
Khushi is still wondering what is wrong with her? Really. I mean really. She told ASR ON PURPOSE, mujhe farak nahin padta on his engagement because it did matter. Everyone is saying she was heartbroken on Diwali, myself included. There is only heartbreak where there are feelings to break (get that, heart break, must give heart to someone to break, see heart+break = understand?). And yet, here she is thinking the La/ASR engagement will make her feel better...when the mention of the announcement made her cry. What are you doing to her???? If she figures out that ASR is misdirecting his anger for her on La, and she is gutsy enough to traipse into the lion's den ... then this little bit of emotional non-realization is ridiculous.
ASR has been pretty consistently nasty when he feels KKG making any type of inroads into his heart, and I applaud you for showing a hero who is so not the "hero". But honestly,while I recognize he tried very hard to stay away from KKG today...this whole round round with hurt, eye close, sideways apology has been done waaay tooo muuuch. And then the icing on the cake is how while hugging La, who could be a lamp post really, they both look at each other with soft bg music...and then we have him taunt and her say she doesn't know what is wrong with her.
I am not even going to delve into how ridiculous you have portrayed Anjali. Everytime the starter in her tube light fires up, there is load shedding. The smurfs are more in touch with the real world than her.
Gautamji, get a new freaking bag of tricks. NOW. And distribute it to the entire writing staff. (I still have your voo doo doll sir, from the teej month that would never end).
