Friends, I do not know if what was shown today was a deviation or a dash of spice, but I know for sure that it was not one bit likeable. They have slaughtered the Walia family. Read on if you are interested.
OUTSIDE WALIA HOUSE
Bebe shouts at the police officer to let go of Billu. The police leaves him, still accusing him and Jassi. Billu yells that it is not true. Amrit asks him to calm down, as they know that their Jassi has not done anything. Billu says with disgust that never has the police ever come to their house, nor has their respect gone in the drains like today. The officer shouts that he is going now, but will come back and will keep an eye on them. He leaves. Nandu comes, all surprised. Looking scared as a mouse, he asks what has happened. Billu chides that he should be the one who is telling them what has happened. Nandu looks puzzled. Billu accuses him that he was the one who dragged Jassi into this, lured her into buying a Mercedes and living a high-class life. Nandu says that they have returned everything to Gulmohur. At the mention of Gulmohur, Billu says that this is the place where he will find all his answers. He says that he will go to GM and meet Armaan Suri. Bebe tries to stop him, but Billu leaves, dragging Nandu along with him.
Bebe suddenly looks worried and says that the Billu-Armaan confrontation is going to yield drastic circumstances. Amrit is surprised and asks her what she means. Bebe says that this is a long story, but it seems she will have to tell her the truth now.
JASSI IN MAURITIUS
Jassi is frantically trying to call her home but the call cannot get through. Nandini suggests that the line may be busy and asks her why she is worrying so much. Jassi says that she is feeling strangely worried for her family. Nandini says that it's just that she is missing them, as it's been days since she's been here; however she is returning to Mumbai tonight. (Thank God.
). Jassi says that tonight seems like forever and that she is feeling scared for some unknown reason and fears that something bad is going to happen which she cannot stop. She tries the phone again unsuccessfully.
MUMBAI: POLICE AND MALLIKA
The officer tells Mallika (on the phone) that he could not find anything in the Walia house. Mallika says that she knew it, but asks him to keep a watch. The police tells her that that old man (Billu) has gone somewhere. Mallika smiles evilly.
She then tells him his next action plan (which we cannot hear and don't want to as well.)
( I was just remembering all those cute scenes outside GM, esp the Armaan jealous of Nandu scenes......what had we done to see this stupid scene at the same place today!
Nandu is trying his level best to convince Billu to withdraw. He tells him that this may worsen things. Billu says that one day or the other; they have to face the truth and these people. Nandu says that these rich people can do anything. Billu tells him that they cannot prove an innocent to be a criminal, after all this country has some law & order. He repeats that his daughter is innocent and that he will talk to Armaan Suri about it. Nandu shouts at him to stop, but can't stop Billu.
Bebe has shown Jassi's diary to Amrit. Both are crying. Amrit says that their Jassi has faced so much alone, but never told them anything. She curses Armaan that God will never forgive him and that he will reap what he has sowed. (Isn't what he has reaped enough?
Just then the police officer comes back (nerd). Bebe is obviously irritated and asks him why he is back. She says her son is not at home. The police says he knows and has come to keep a watch, lest their Jassi stealthily comes back and hides in the house. Bebe shouts that what has she done. The police smiles cruelly and says that once they know what she has done, they will not take her inside the house. Amrit and Bebe are puzzled and scared. He asks them if they have ever wondered why their daughter came home late at night and with whom. Amrit defends that it was because of her work. The officer says that it was due to her illicit relationship with her boss Armaan Suri, which she made use of to create a false company Kohinoor and ran away after stealing it's money.
(Every time I hear that "illicit relati...." I feel like turning off the TV set. Blow!!
). Bebe shouts that this is not true. She suddenly looks like she'll collapse and Amrit holds her quickly, looking equally shocked.
GULMOHUR: MR. ARMAAN SURI AND HIS DRINK
Armaan pours himself a drink. ( Please......boy...wake up! Come out!! And kill Mallika!!!
. He says to himself that this cannot happen, it can't. He says that the whole world may shout that Jassi is a thief but he CANNOT bring himself to believe this. He says he's sure someone has taken advantage of her and falsely accused her.
( Thank you Armaan for trusting her, that itself is a lot for us.
MALLIKA, BILLU AND THE REPORTERS
Mallika is doing her favorite job: giving press interviews. She tells them this is the story of a girl who went to this extent for money; actually it's not only Jasmeet Walia's fault, it is also her family's fault. She then puts on a fake sorry face and says that she is "disturbed" now and cannot talk any more.
Just then Billu tries to enter and the security stops him. Mallika smiles radiantly. Billu comes inside and Mallika introduces him as Mr. Balwant Walia, Jasmeet Walia's father. She asks him what he has come for, isn't he at peace after stealing their money. Billu looks shocked. He says that it is a lie. Mallika challenges him to tell the press where his daughter and the lost money is. Billu says that he is not here to listen to her bakwas and that he wants to talk to Armaan Suri. He asks her to have some shame, she is blaming the girl who has put in her untiring efforts for their company; who is innocent and has not taken a single penny. Mallika's face turns crimson.
She shouts that why has Jassi run away then. Billu says that she hasn't run away and will return soon. Mallika says that yes, she will return, only to go to jail. Billu says he now realizes it's her game. The press then swarms around him and pester him with questions. Billu has a tough time battling them and Mallika smiles to herself. One of the reporters then asks him about the fake balance sheets and even shows him a copy and Billu looks like his whole world has turned upside down.
Big brother Aryan then enters to sneer how chor ka baap was allowed inside. They say he came inside forcefully. Aryan says "Chori ke upar seena jori." He asks the security to throw him out and they do.
Billu is literally thrown out of Gulmohur and he lands at Nandu's feet. A shocked Nandu picks him up and shouts that who dared to touch him. Billu has gone in a state of shock. He sits on the road for some time, and Nandu helps him up. Nandu is shouting that he will not leave these people but Billu is still in his shock, and talks nothing, looking like a mad man. Nandu dutifully wipes the dust off his clothes and looks really upset to see how Billu was treated. He keeps chattering and Billu closes his mouth with his hand and starts walking. Mallika, Aryan and the reporters' words ring in his ears.
JASSI IN MAURITIUS, THE WALIAS IN MUMBAI
Jassi has tried the phone for the umpteenth time and finally switches on the TV to see the news. She hears her own story on the news and cannot believe it. They tell everything about the fraud etc. They even show the telecast of reporters outside her house, a troubled Bebe and Amrit who are trying to get rid of them and lock themselves inside the house. Jassi is utterly shocked and starts crying. The reporter says that this is a story that will bring out the bitter truth of society: the story of a middle class girl who dreamt of a rich and luxurious life who, in order to achieve that, went to the extent of having illegal relationships with her boss Armaan Suri. (Yuk again!
) Billu then comes back and the reporters swarm him. He escapes inside the house.
Amrit and Bebe are shocked to see him in this state and ask him what has happened. Billu starts sobbing miserably. He hugs Bebe and they cry pitifully. (This is torturing not only them , but also us viewers
.) He tells her that everything is over. Bebe says that once Jassi will return, everything will be all right.
Back in Mauritius, Jassi collapses on the floor and Billu sits on the swing, losing all his strength. He tells Bebe not to mention that girl's name ever again.
Finally Jassi's call gets through. She starts speaking to her mother but Billu takes the phone from her. He tells Jassi that it is her father speaking to her. He says that he wants to ask her one question and her answer will decide his life and death, so he expects the truth from her. Jassi has already started crying. He asks her if she prepared the false balance sheets. Jassi asks him to listen to her. Billu says that he only wants the answer. Jassi begs that he listen but Billu says he only wants to hear yes or no. Jassi has no option but to sob a yes. Billu looks shattered. Jassi cries that he listen to her. Billu tells her coldly that he has got his answer. He says that he would have supported her all his life, but she has broken his trust, his honour and shattered her mom and Bebe. Jassi tries to explain but he shouts that she not call her "papaji".. He asks her not to come back and says that he does not want to see her face ever.. Bebe covers her face with her hands.
Jassi looks miserable and shattered.
