April 6th Update
Kripa is so cute, she makes me go so mushy…..where on earth did Ekta find her, she is such a darling! This girl is going to take away every possible television award this year! But girls bad news, no sign of Angad today…..except that we could see his pics, but not the guy in action…..Ekta is testing our patience!
Anyway, the update goes like, Alia makes an entry in her Bike, looking good! She bumps into some guy, and gives a ''I don't care for you bugger'' look and asks him rudely, ''lagi toh nahin naa, ab hat jaao raaste se.'' As Alia takes off her helmet, the guy goes like, ''Oh its you, Alia the great, who else.'' Alia just gives an attitude loaded look to this chap and drives away. (I think she will be one cool character!) Kripa meanwhile, comes to the Academy in an auto, to the Soul Music Academy (what a cheesy name!) and wonders that if her dream will come true or not of becoming a singer. Kripa looks around (Dance classes and Music classes going on) and is quite fascinated by the building and the surroundings. She meandes her way through to Kartik's Office (he is like the CEO or something, whoever the guy is, he does a very good job!) and enters, as soon as she is about to take a seat, he snubs her and tells her that he is busy presently and that she should wait for him outside. Kripa very innocently nods her head and waits outside, and keeps waiting for ages, till the peon comes and calls her inside. Kartik asks Kripa in a very patronizing way if she has seen around and she would have guessed by now what a prestigious academy Soul is and that before getting an admission here, she will have to give an audition with some Prof. Shivamani. In what I felt was an incredibly cute scene, Kripa immediately begins to gear up for singing, assuming that she has give an audition immediately, Kartik looks at her with ''What the hell'' and tells her that ''Yahan nahin, Prof. ke saamne. Kripa looks apprehensive but still confident and readily agrees to give the audition and goes for the same. Kartik smiles to himself and says that Prof. Shivamani is the toughest music teacher in the Academy and Kripa will have to very, very good to get through him.
Kripa is waiting in the Audition Hall when Anita and her group of bird-brain friends drop by and Anita gives a sly look at Kripa and then goes on to introducer her to her group (she calls her Kaya intentionally!) and asks her what is she planning to sing for Prof. Shivamani, Kripa very innocently says that she has been learning Classical Music for the past 8 years and that she will sing one of the Raagas for him. Anita immediately rolls her eyes and tells her that Prof. Shivamani just looks traditional but he loves these film item songs and that if she hopes to get an approval from him, she should sing a good filmy song. Kripa is at a loss and says that although she has heard a lot of these film songs, she has never attempted to sing one. Just then Prof. Shivamani (he is Anupam from Tumhari Disha) and Kartik come into the auditorium and Kartik introduces both of them. Kripa proceeds on the podium for the audition and looks confused, then remembers Anita's words, who is sitting with a catty expression on her face along with her friends and in an adorable scene, immediately belts out ''Kaanta Laga, Haye Laga.'' Gosh, it was such a sweet scene, and Kripa's character came out so well, her incorruptibility, her simplicity and her childishness! Kartik also lets out a small smile as the Prof. looks on wonderstruck and Anita has a smirk on her face. But she sings the song beautifully (I think it was Prajakta Shukre of Indian Idol who sang this for Kripa) infact, in a classical mode and as soon as she gets over with the song, Kripa is frightened looking at Prof. Shivamani's expression, as he looks at her sternly and gets up and then to everyone's utter amazement, he goes to her and blesses her. He says that in so many years of his experience as a Music Teacher, he has not seen such a great audition and that he is sure that Kripa will be the brightest star to shine in Soul Academy and a voice that will be remembered for ever. Kripa is thrilled to bits and her eyes well up, as Kartik and Anita look in disgust!!!
In the next scene, Anita and her friends are shown to be in a bad mood and are walking down the corridor, when they bump into Alia who taunts Anita why is she making such a rotten face for which Anita tells her that Kripa has got admission in the Academy. Alia is amused and tells her that when will she grow up and why does she continue to get jealous of people who are truly talented. Anita is bugged and tells Alia that she should not forget that she is her elder sister for which Alia very tartly replies that God should have blessed Anita with some brains also and then Alia would have treated her like her elder sister! Anita just huffs and walks off, while Alia looks on amused.
In the next scene, Kripa is shown to be in her room (she is still in the Outhouse) and is trying to fill up the Academy form and keeps talking to herself. She keeps remembering Prof. Shivamani's words that Kripa will be the brightest pupil ever to come out from the Academy (the first one being Angad!) and then she chides herself that she should not get into her day-dreaming mode again and that she will never be able to fill the form correctly. As she struggles with the form, there is a column in which the residence has to be filled up and Kripa wonders whether she should put her Nainital Address or the Khanna Residence in it and then she realizes that she has to get the guardian's signature on the form and decides to go to Dilip for the same.
There is a private party going on at the Khanna Residence (In Ekta's world, no one works, people just party!) and Naina is in conversation with some lady and Dilip is with some guy. The man tells both Dilip and Naina that Christina Sommers (who is some leading pop singer in the <ST1:COUNTRY-REGIoN w:st="on">US</ST1:COUNTRY-REGIoN>) and Angad should come together for a new album and that he would like to initiate that. Dilip is just about to open his mouth to say something, when Naina buts in and says that Angad is open to all deals but everything should be on his terms and conditions and that he is as big a superstar as Christina Sommers if not bigger. The lady present agrees with Naina and tells him that anyone would be willing to give his left arm to work with Angad, and Naina is very pleased with herself. Dilip asks Naina where Angad is, and she goes to Anita (who is flirting with a guy, who is probably the Guest's son and is trying to get a date for herself!) and tells him to get Angad downstairs immediately. Anita is not pleased, but Naina gives a stern look at her and Anita makes a funny face and goes to Angad's room, where that cool dude friend of his is sitting and reading some book. Angad's room was shown nicely today (wonder when Ekta plans to show Angad clearly???) and he had some rather cool posters, looking very rad in all of them. (I especially liked the one of his in a white T smiling sweetly!) Anita asks the friend where Angad is and that Naina and Dilip are waiting for him downstairs for which the friend says that he is waiting for Angad to come out of the bathroom and that they are planning to go partying. Anita makes a face and says that Naina Mausi will kill Angad, if he is again gayab tonight, the friend says that he will make sure Angad is down for a moment to say hello to the guests and then they will scoot off. Anita says that no one on Earth can have control over Angad and that he always does what he feels like. The friend (who seems to have a crush on Anita) begins to playfully flirt with her and she seems to be unaware of him and then she rushes off. (The friend had an awful English, btw)
In the next scene, Kripa comes inside and says ''Heloo Aunty'' and Naina is horrified, she goes to her and tells her that Kripa should understand that they too have a private life and that next time before coming to the residence, she should take permission on the Intercom. Dadi (looking so beautiful in a sky blue salwar kameez and a lovely pearl necklace) is disgusted with Naina's behavior and looks at Kripa with sympathy. As a stunned Kripa is leaving the room, she hears the guest asking Naina who the girl is, for which Naina replies, ''Oh Nothing'' and Kripa is shown to be completely shattered. As Kripa walks down to the Outhouse, she remembers her argument with Gayatri where she had insisted on going to Mumbai by saying that everyone in the Khanna House will be there to take good care of her and her eyes well up with emotion. Kripa goes to her room and looks at her Family Photograph and breaks down (Did a very good job of it) crying as she misses her family's love and warmth.
All in all, a fairly good, Kripa Centric Episode. Ekta's find is going to create a dhoom, this girl is not just a good looker, but a very competent actress, the scene in which she breaks down in her room was superb! Hated Naina though, she is so mean to poor Kripa! But Alia seems to be a great character and will probably support Kripa. So we have three people going for our gal till now! I think by not showing Angad so soon, they are just making the viewers more and more eager…..well, as long as the wait bears its fruits, I guess it shouldn't be a problem!
Judging by tomorrow's promos, I am not too sure if Angad will be shown tomorrow also, else he might make a last minute entry when Kripa has to garland and say ''I love you''…..keeping my fingers crossed!
Your comments on the Update would be so welcome!

April 7th Update
All in all, a bummer of an episode, Angad was not shown even once today, on top of that Kripa is in big trouble!
Some new characters have been introuduced, a girl called Mishti who is a student in the academy and Anita's ace rival, she has warmed up to Kripa in a big way! Kripa best buddy from Naintal, Harshini has also arrived Mumbai. Dadi's South-Indian Maid has also been introduced!
Khanna Residence (Naina's Room)
Basically the episode begins with Nethra and Naina getting a beauty treatment in their room and Anita generally bitching and gossiping around. Kartik comes by, and Anita teases him into getting a makeover done, Naina sarcastically passes a comment, that Kartik has no such need, because he is not a superstar. Kartik is miffed and walks out in a huff. Anita bitches to Naina about Kripa and says that there is one more person in the house who needs a desperate makeover, Naina is annoyed and tells Anita not to take her name, then asks about her whereabout, Anita gives out her silly putter and says that all of us behaved so badly with her, that by now she must have left for Nainital.
In the next scene, Kripa is shown to meet up with Harshini who has come down from Naintal to join the Academy and she recounts the entire story till date. Harshini is disgusted but assures Kripa that she should not let hypocraites like the Khanna's down her morale like this and that Kripa had come to Mumbai to fulfill her ambition to become a singer and that she should go ahead with it and not bother about anyone. Kripa is not easily consoled and says that singing was never her ambition but a passion for her. She had come to Mumbai for learning Music and that she is very disappointed by the Khanna family and that she cannot learn anything in such an atmosphere. Harshini consoles her and tells her that now she is there in Mumbai and that they will both be there for each other and also have lots of fun. Kripa cheers up considerably.
Meanwhile Dadi is at her home and is thinking about Naina's ill-treatment towards Kripa and becomes very upset. Dadi's maid comes by and asks her why is she so pre-occupied, Dadi tells her that she is very upset over the fact that Naina and the others are being so nasty to the poor kid and that Kripa is so young and alone in a city like Mumbai and instead of protecting her, they are making life miserable for her. The maid tells Dadi that Tejdhar (Teddy) was also telling her about Naina and Dilip's rude treatment towards Kripa and that the poor kid is having a hard time. Dadi teases the Maid with Tejdhar and asks her since when have both of them become friends (this was a rip-off from Hum Aapke Hain Koun!), the maid blushes and says that nothing like this is going between Teddy and her and that they just share stuff for professional reasons!!! Dadi then comments that if Kripa is strong enough and takes things in her stride and stands up for herself, then it will be good enough, else she will have to take stock of things to come, as she will not let injustice meted out to a girl like Kripa.
Soul Music Academy (Prof. Shivaman's Violin Class)
At the Acadmeny, its Kripa and Harshini's first day and they join Prof. Shivaman's classes. Prof. Shivamani is very pleased seeing both of them and introduces them to the class by stating that both of them have learnt music for 8 years in Naintal and everyone had heard Kripa singing in the auditorium yesterday and know how talented she is, and that Harshini is equally talented and that he is sure they will both excel in the academy. Anita is quite jealous and tells the Prof. that they are too junior and how come they are being put in the same class as the rest of them. Prof. Shivamani snubs Anita and tells her that he has heard both Harshini and Kripa and he feels they are far more talented than most of the seniors present. Anita and her friends are completely put off.
Soul Music Academy (Common Room)
Kripa and Harshini enter the Common Room and are insulted by Anita and her gang who tells them to scoot off. Harshini puts up a good fight and Kripa too joins her, Anita passes a mean comment that they should probably leaee the Common Room for Kripa and Harshini as the room is meant for Commoners! Kripa just cannot understand Anita's behaviour and stops Harshini from arguing further. A glamarous looking girl makes an entry, fair, tall and very model type looks, her name is Mishti and Anita is quite put off looking at her. Mishti passes a comment at Anita telling her that there were too many good people in the US and hence she started missing Anita and decided to come back, but she sees that Anita is still up to her old tricks and bullies new comers and kids! Mishti and Anita have quite an argument, where Mishti makes fun of Anita by saying that is she still trying tto get dates from guys who used to run behind Mishti and Anita very snobbishly says that she doesn't have to run behind anyone, after all no one should forget that she is Angad's. Misthi retorts that its a pity that a guy like Angad has a sister like Anita for him Anita decides that it would be wise to just keep quite and walks off with her floozies. Mishti introduces herself to Kripa and Harshini and tells them to come to her if they have any problem whatsoever in the future.
Khanna Residence (Anita's room)
Anita and her gang decide to get even with Kripa and Harshini and set them right. Anita suggest to the others that she will get Kripa and Harshini to come to the Discotheque with them and then they will have fun at their expense.
Dadi comes to meet Kripa at the Outhouse and tells her she had come to see if the delicate flower is still standing tall or has it started withering under the glare of the Sun. (Indicating to Kripa and the Khanna's) Just then Anita drops by and aplogizes to Kripa for her misbeaviour yesterday and offer her and Harshini to come to the Disco with her. Kripa is quite reluctant, but on Dadi's insistence, she agrees.
Kripa and Harshini go to the Disco, and Anita passes some sarcastic comment on Kripa's dress, but Kripa does not quite get it. Anita then offers them drinks and puts a sedative in them. But Mishti sees it and takes the drinks from them and warns Anita to mend her ways. Mishti gets two fresh glasses for Kripa and Harshini and tells Kripa that she should not trust people so blindly and not take everyone at face value. Anita then asks Kripa and Harshini to join them in the dancefloor, while Kripa refuses, Harshini goes ahead, a guy who was in Anita's gang kind of misbehaves with Harshini and tears her top. Mishti offers to help her out and takes her to her Car to change.
Another guy in Anita's gang goes and sits near Kripa and starts consuming Drugs, Kripa is not aware of the same. Just then the Police comes and announces that they have got a tip off that some youngsters are consuming drugs here, the guy sitting with Kripa has vanished by now, but the packet of drug is still lying on the table. Kripa is shocked and goes and stands near Anita who whispers to her that if the Police asks Anita something, Kripa should proxy for her. The Manager points to Anita first and tells the Inspector that she was the girl sitting with the guy consuming drugs, Kripa proxy's for Antia by saying that she was with her, the Manager then remembers and tells the Inspector that it was actually Kripa who was with the guy. As a stunned Kripa look on, the Inspector asks Anita who replies in the affirmative. The Inspector tells Kripa to come to the Police Station with her. Harshini and Misthti look at her helplessly.
Harishini and Mishti are pretty cool! Though I mistook Mishti to be a teacher at the Academy rather than a student! She is very glamarous looking, and comes in a lot of ads, don't know are name though! I really hope Dadi takes Kripa into her home, that way Angad and Kripa can share some great, romantic moments there
Promo for next week shows Kripa telling Harshini and Mishti that Anita ditched her, while a furious looking Naina is standing near them. Harshini points at Naina and Kripa is petrified looking at her!

April 13th Update
Main Players in the Episode
The episode beings with Kripa's shell shocked expression on watching Angad flirting outrageously with that one-night stand of his. Kripa walks out shattered and heartbroken and looks behind once more at the room where Angad is cosying up with the girl and goes back to the living room and sits in a corner still holding Angad's pic from her hand.
A POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE SCENE (But nothing really happened) Outhouse
Its midnight and Angad walks down to the living area to get a bottle of water for himself, Kripa is still sitting where she was and looks numb and dumbfounded, and does not notice Anagad coming and nor does he (selfish, self-obsessed creature) and the girl comes from behind and hugs him and says that ''I love you.'' Angad gives her a ''Lay off will ya'' look and just smiles causally and says, ''Ye kya love shuv laga rakha hai, what do you want.'' The girl is embarrassed and does not say anything. Angad very coolly says that what is she wants, a chance to appear in his album, or a chance to travel abroad on his stage shows or a chance to sing with him. Kripa is listening to all this and is just too shocked to offer any kind of reaction, and just keeps listening. Angad then tells the girl that he has arranged for her to appear in his next Music Album, is she happy. The girl is embarrassed yet cannot hide her happiness, then hugs him. Angad is like, yeah whatever, who cares, I won't even remember your name tomorrow morning. Kripa is still sitting there numbed, and is all the more shocked when she hears Angad telling in general, that Love is just a commodity for me, it just does not exist in my life. Love is just a dream, something which I am not foolish enough to dream, I only peddle it for others so that it will help gain me name and fame. I just use to my advantage. Kripa is so disgusted, and still standing in the corner, while that girl leaves the house. Yeah, just when I thought that Angad and Kripa are left alone in the outhouse, Angad takes off the shirt that he was wearing and flungs it back, which falls right on Kripa's face. Kripa keeps thinking of all that Angad had said in his interview and then she thinks about all that she saw and heard right now. Kripa throws his shirt in revolt and anger.
The next morning, Kripa looking so pretty in a orange and green Salwar Suit, is getting ready to leave for the Academy, when she glances at the same room where angad had put up the last night and then she looks sad and disconsolate and then has a sickened expression on her face as she tries to wipe off memories of what she saw and heard yesterday night and walks out of the house.
COOL ALIA SCENE (ACADEMY)
Alia, cool Alia, bumps her bike into Kripa! (These two are going to be buddies, yeah!) Alia keeps honking, but Kripa is lost in her thoughts and falls down. Alia in her typical style says, ''Aankhen nahin hai kya aur kaan bhi nahin hain kya, horn suayi nahin diya.'' Kripa is still dazed and apologizes softly, Alia softens up and asks her what is she doing here (she sees her coming from the outhouse) and then it dawns upon her that she is Kripa. Alia offers her a lift to Academy in her own quirky style (love this gal already!) and they both leave for the Academy. As Alia drops Kripa at the College, Anita and her gang of dimwits chance upon her, Anita is furious and asks Alia why on earth did she drop Kripa to College and why is she striking up a friendship with ''that girl''. Alia gives a royal snub and tells her to mind her own silly business and says that no one tells Alia whom to befriend and whom not to, so just lay off. Anita is like, ''Whatt???'' Anita's friends in order to cheer her up tells her that today is freshers day, why not do something that will cheer up Anita like anything (they refer to ragging poor Kripa, who else?)
PRITHVI SCENE (ACADEMY)
Anita and her bummer friends have blocked the way to the classroom and when Kripa and Harshini try and enter, they tell them, ''Villagers'' (that was quite funny btw) today is fresher's day and that either they do what their seniors tell them or they accept that they are just a bunch of losers. Harshini loses her cool and accepts the challenge, Kripa refuses, but Anita bugs her so much, that she too agrees to it. Anita then gives a garland to Kripa and tells her that the first guy up the stairs has to be garlanded and she will have to say, ''I love you'' to him. Kripa is shocked but in a spot and as she looks back, she sees the peon taking the stairs, Kripa just takes a deep breath and closes her eyes tightly and kind of throws the garland on the guy. The Camera pans on to a pair of shoes, white jeans and then a white jersey. Then they show a pair of nice arms holding a Violin and then they zoom on to his ears, one of which is pierced, then they show his eyes and then the guy finally. Its Prithvi……I thought he looked very nice! The guy keeps staring at Kripa and she in turn keeps looking at her. The guy looks mesmerized and love struck, while Kripa lowers her eyes and is unable to do anything. Just then, Anita is shown to be, Oh Shucks and then goes, ''Prithvi.'' He on the other hand just smiles casually at Anita and says, ''There you go again Anita, tum ne phir se apni harkatein shuru kar di.'' Anita and Prithvi seem to be very good friends, the way Anita speaks to him affectionately! Harshini on the other hand keeps staring at Prithvi, and looks like she has lost her heart to him already. Then its Harshini's turn to garland and as she closes her eyes and puts the garland on the guy who comes upstairs, to her utter shock, its Prof. Shivamani. Harshini is petrified and the Prof. looks angry, just then Prithvi, the coolest one comes from behind and makes up an excuse for Harshini and the Prof. is happy with it and walks off. Harshini is now totally fallen for him. Kripa is shown to be lost and in her own thoughts, while Prithvi cannot lift his eyes from her. As Harshini hugs Kripa with relief, Prithvi keeps staring at Kripa's face with amazement while Harshini keeps looking at Prithvi.
Kripa and Harshini are shown to walk in the Campus, Kripa is looking exceedingly sad and lost, while Harshini keeps talking about how handsome and dashing Prithvi is and what a lovely name it is, while Kripa is oblivious to all this. Kripa then suddenly says that she is leaving for Nainital tomorrow, Harshini is shocked and asks her what is wrong, Kripa says that nothing is wrong, its just that she is not meant for a place like Mumbai and that her Mom was correct when she said that Kripa would be happy between her loved ones and that she wants to go back to her small, happy world. Harshini tells her that Kripa had earlier decided to stay back for Angad and her sake, did she do anything to hurt her, when Kripa replies in the negative, she asks if Angad said something to her, as soon as Harshini takes his name, Kripa looks very disturbed and says that she does not want to offer any explanations and that she has decided to go back to Nainital and nothing will stop her. Harshini is very sad and thinks to herself what could have gone wrong with Kripa and then decides that there is just one way to stop Kripa and that she will never be able to refuse that person.
Harshini and Dadi are in a conversation where Harshini tells Dadi the entire story and says that Kripa refuses to divulge what prompted her to go back to Nainital. Dadi thinks to herself and tells Harshini not to worry and that she will do something, which will make Kripa stay back. Harshin is elated, while Dadi has a knowing smile.
The Promo of the next episode shows, Naina, Dilip and Kartik together, while Naina looking very frantic and worried asking Teddy where Kripa is, a somber Teddy answers that she is leaving for Nainital. Naina then says that now she cannot let Kripa leave this house at any cost and that she will do anything to make her stay back!
Comments – Good episode, but now that they show Angad atleast, they are refusing to show us even one Angad – Kripa scene! Prithvi is good, though his voice is too soft, actually it goes well with his image. He and Kripa looked awesome in the scene, where she garlands him and he keeps looking at her awestruck! Watchout for another chemical pair guys, though nothing infront of the Angad-Kripa pairing! I like Alia already, she is a bindaas type of character, not bothered with anything or anyone. Angad's dialogues were wonderful and his expressions were bang on target. He is a completely natural actor and acts with consummate ease! Kripa is again very natural, very expressive and looks wonderful! Hoping to see some vibrant episodes ahead.
Your lovely comments and feedbacks are so awaited buddies

Mine may not be as good as chilliyflakes, but there wasn't one up so i gave it a try... enjoy!!!
opening scene starts with anitas mom watching kusum on tv and then alia comes in complianing about how she wants to watch the football match, she doesn't get her way so she leaves and then anitas mom watches the news and sees that the anchor is talking about angad and how his childhood friend kripa sherma is going to sing with him on his upcoming album. Anitas mom is surprised so she calls naina who is sitting in her office working.
Naina turns on the television and see that the news reporter is talking about how angad is going to have kripa sing on his next album. Naina is shocked. Then they have an interview with angads dadi, dadi says that kripas dad had done so much for the family just when they were starting out and so it is now their turn to help and that would be by having kripa sing on angads next album. Naina is shocked and furious.
Kripa is still upset about angads behavior from the night before and has made the decision to go back home, she is packing her clothes. In the main house naina and dilip are discussing how could his mother have done such a thing, then dadi shows up. She reminds dilip that he is where he is because kripas dad had sold his farm and his wife's jewelry so that he could fulfil his dream, and then she tells naina that she has changed from what she was before, and that all the money has changed her and made her into someone bad. Dadi then leaves.
Naina gets really furious about it all and says to dilip that kripa has to leave now because she can't sing with angad, then kartik comes in saying that kripa can't leave, he turns on the television which shows that people like how kripa is going to sing with angad on the next album, it shows some humanity in them, and that it makes them the bigger than everyone else. the news reporter also says that his album sells for his recent cd have grown. Naina realizes that kripa has to stay, because she will help his image. Teddy then comes in saying that kripa is leaving for her home.
Naina and dilip try to stop kripa from leaving but she doesn't listen to them and leave in the taxi for the airport.
Naina, dilip, kartik are sitting in the living room disscussing how they will bring kripa back and if she doesn't come back then what will they say to the media about her not being there. All of a sudden kripa shows up and everyone is surprised, then dadi shows up saying that she brought her back. Dadi had told kripa that the only reason she is leaving is becuase her expectations weren't being met and that now there is no reason to stay, but kripa still has her dreams of being a singer so she should fulfiil them, so kripa comes back. Everyone is glad she is back and ask her stay in the main house but she prefers to stay in out house, so she leaves and then anita and naina are talking. Naina doesn't like her being here but if she can help angad then its good she stayed.
April 14th Update
Ekta is boring us now…..no Angad today! But the story has taken an interesting turn, one Dadi has come to know that Kripa has a soft corner for Angad and secondly, the Khanna's are going to behave decently with her from now….at least for some time till they get their job done!
The episode begins with Nethra watching ''Kusum'' on TV and getting very involved in it, Alia comes in, looking pretty smart in jeans and a halter neck, and takes the remote from her and says that she wants to see the Sports Channel. While flicking the channels, she puts on the News Channel, and Nethra takes the remote from her saying that at least let her watch news, if nothing else. Alia gets up in frustration and says that she is going to her friends home to watch TV (the entire Khanna house has just one TV???), a news comes on some K Channel (that's Mr. Bajaj's Channel from KZK, talk about self-promotion for Balaji!) that Superstar Angad's new, yet to be released album, Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai is going to launch Kripa Sharma along with him and that she will be singing in the album with him. This news has been confirmed from Devyani Khanna, Angad's grandmother who has herself announced this. As a shocked Nethra watches the television, Dadi comes on screen and smiling belligerently declares that Angad and the Khanna's want to prove to the world that humanity is not gone from the world and for this they have decided to give a chance to a rank newcomer like Kripa to sing alongside an established, super-star like Angad, because Kripa's father had helped Dilip Khanna become what he is today.
A stunned Nethra calls up Naina, who is sitting in her Office (looking very much the dominating businesswoman, in a power-suit) barking instructions to her secretary, and Nethra tells an irritated Naina to switch on K Channel immediately. Naina cannot believe her eyes and ears when she listen to Dadi repeating the same stuff.
The next scene shows Naina and Dilip in a furious conversation with each other where an outraged Naina shouts on Dilip, what has gone wrong with his Mother and what does this nonsense mean. Just then Dadi comes from behind saying that she will explain what this ''nonsense'' means. Naina and Dadi have a furious conversation, in which Naina tries to insult Dadi, but she gives it equally back and passes some good barbs at Dilip. Dadi says that Naina and Dilip might have forgotten all about their humble background and how Surya (Kripa's dad) had sold off his farm and Gayatri's jewellery to help out Dilip, but she has not and she will not let them forget it also. Naina and Dilip are furious but they are unable to say anything. After Dadi walks out, Naina tells Dilip that she doesn't care what she has announced in the Media, she wants Kripa out of this house as soon as possible, just then Kartik comes and says that it is not possible now and that Kripa has to stay here at any cost. Naina asks him what the hell is he taking about, Kartik puts on the TV, where the announcer is saying that since the news has come that a rank newcomer has been given a chance to sing alongside Angad, his reputation has hit the zenith and he has consolidated his position over the music industry more stronger than ever. Then they show the audience reaction, where people praise Angad by saying that he has proved that unlike other Media personalities, Angad has lived upto people's perception and expectation of him and that they are loving him more and more. Naina is elated, then Kartik tells her that since this news has released, Angad's album sales have gone up by 35% and that distributors are asking for more and more copies of his forthcoming Album. Naina then tells Dilip that they have to have Kripa with them now, Naina asks Teddy very sweetly to get Kripa to them as soon as possible, a serious looking Teddy tells them that Kripa is leaving for Nainital right now.
Kripa is shown packing her stuff and remembering the few days that she spent in Mumbai, particularly all the Angad moments, when he touched her hand for the first time at the Concert, when she saw him at the Concert the second time, his interview, the way he was giving autographs to kids in the Green Room….and then she remembers all the sad moments, when Angad had thrown the jacket on her and assumed her to be the new maid, then the horrible scene, where she had seen him making out with his one-night stand and writing his name on her back, then all that he had said to the girl, then the way he had flung his black shirt on Kripa (accidentally). Kripa wipes her tears and then walks to the Taxi, the background tune of the Yaadein song is playing, as she loads her stuff onto the Cab, Naina and Dilip walk to her and then ask her rather sweetly where she is going. This was a brilliant Kripa scene and showed her remarkable strength of character and dignity, she very politely and firmly refused the Khanna's to stay back in Mumbai by saying that she has over-extended her stay in Mumbai and has taken undue advantage of their courtesy and that she is going to her Parents where she would be happiest. As a stunned Khanna's look on, Kripa goes away.
The next scene shows the Khanna's pottering in the living room, discussing what will happen now. Anita has also joined and she very meanly says she feels that all of them are over-reacting and they should be relived and happy that the down-market, loser Kripa has gone back to the Village from where she had come. Naina is irritated and tells Anita to shut-up and says that it is not the time to take out personal enmity and that what explanation will they give to the Media. Dilip says that not to worry, we will let out a statement that Kripa fell ill and that she decided to go back to Nainital. Kartik and Naina do not buy the explanation, just then Naina's secretary comes and says that Angad's records are breaking all sales figures and his personal reputation is on an all time high, since this news of Kripa singing with him has come out. Naina tells the gathered crowd that she had never thought she would say this, but if she wants anything right now, that is to have Kripa come back to the Khanna family.
Kripa is sitting in the lounge waiting to board onto her plane and she is remembering Angad over and over again and she is not able to stop her tears. Just then a girl comes and places her bag besides Kripa, and as she looks up, its Harshini. As a stunned Kripa stands up and asks her what is she doing here, Harshini says that they had both dreamt of coming to Mumbai and fulfilling their dreams together, if they cannot do that, let them break it together atleast. Kripa is touched and tells her that she does not want Harshini to abandon her plans because of Kripa and that she is leaving Mumbai for entirely some other reasons (she has still not told anything about the Angad issue), Harshini says that whatever the reason, she for one knows that Kripa is a very strong and determined person, and that if she could not withstand the atmosphere in Mumbai, then Harshini can never tackle it alone.
The scene shifts to the Khanna Household, where a worried Dilip, Naina, Kartik and a disinterested Anita are shocked to see Kripa walking in with her baggage and then as they stare at her emotionlessly, Dadi appears from behind and Kripa turns around to look at her and everyone bursts into a relieved smile except Anita and Kartik (he doesn't seem to be bothered by anything)
Just then Dadi comes and Kripa is stunned to see her. Dadi smiles nicely and she hands over a present to Kripa by saying that she wanted to say goodbye to Kripa and handover this present for Surya and Gayatri. Kripa feels very bad and says that she wanted to meet Dadi but could not due to some last minute rush, Dadi shows as if she is not bothered and says that it is ok Kripa. Dadi then says that she won't stop Kripa nor ask what has prompted her to leave Mumbai so suddenly. She says that there are two types of people in the World, Winners and Losers, so what if Kripa belongs to the second category, so be it. Kripa feels very awkward and tells Dadi that she is not a quitter and her reason for leaving Mumbai is not because she had some expectations of the Khanna's and of Mumbai and that fell short of her expectations, but it is Angad. Kripa suddenly bites her tongue and realizes what she has uttered and is not able to look at Dadi, who suddenly has a, ''Oh so that was it.'' And Dadi says with utter amazement that she had no idea that Kripa had come to Mumbai because of him, she had thought it was to pursue Music. Kripa mumbles something and tries to correct what has accidentally slipped out of her Mouth. Dadi then says that she won't stop Kripa from going back to Nainital, or recommend her to stay back in Mumbai, because now whatever Kripa does she has to do because that is what she feels right and that is what her heart says and not because of someone else. Kripa just keeps looking at Dadi and then breaks out into an endearing smile and says that she is willing to give one last chance, but this time to herself and not to anyone else. Dadi and Harshini are elated.
The scene shifts to the Khanna House, where Anita is like whatever, Kartik has no expression and Naina and Dilip are elated and tell Kripa very nicely that they are very happy that she had decided to stay back in Mumbai and that they are willing to do anything to help her out. Naina then offers to take Kripa into their house and tells her that she will stay inside the Khanna mansion from now onward, but Kripa very politely and firmly refuses and says that she is comfortable in the Outhouse and that she knows her ''place''. As Kripa and Dadi walk out, Naina smiles victoriously, and tells everyone present that if Kripa thinks that she will take advantage out of them because of this incident, she is so wrong, Naina will make Kripa pay for each and every thing that Kripa gets out of the Khanna Household and that Naina knows how to use and dispose people at her convenience. Naina says that they have to put up with Kripa only till Angad's next album releases and becomes a blockbuster, and then she can go to hell or to Nainital, whatever comes first.
Average episode! Good acting by Kripa and Dadi, though it was actually Dadi's episode today. The dialogues are really good, I loved the ones between Dadi and Kripa in the Airport scene!
Its really bugging that they are not showing the lead hero at all! I mean its three weeks now, and he has appeared in two songs and just two scenes, with a couple of dialogues thrown in! Its like a guest appearance, hope they show him regularly from next week! Its very bugging to do an update without Angad! But I found this ridiculous that a small press report could cause Angad's album to soar, that means he is so untalented that he needs to resort to gimmicks all the time???? Whatever, hoping for a better next week.
BTW, Angad, Kripa and Prithvi are appearing in a special promotion for Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai on 20th April, Wednesday at 10 Pm or 8 Pm on Sony! Its some kind of a live programme, maybe a dance cum song thingy! Whatever, must be fun to watch Angad on some other programme as he refuses to come in a single episode! I hope the three perform on, ''It's the time to Disco'' and on ''Tum Paas Aaye'' and ofcouse, the best song of all, ''Mahi Ve.'' It would be great fun to watch!

April 18th Update
Finally, Finally, Finally…..We get to see Angad and Kripa…..together!!! And boy, do they blow the screen away with their Chemistry or what!!! But its Angad who takes the cake, his mere presence is enough to evaporate everything around him, and it seems that he is only one present in the scene, that is the amount of screen presence he has!!! A great episode and an even greater one is awaited tomorrow, when Kripa will slap the living daylights out of Angad…….and he will raise his hand to slap her in exchange! We got to see the three principal characters together today….Angad, Kripa and Prithvi and it goes without doubt, who is going to be scene-stealer of this show! The most important thing, from now onwards, the story is going to focus on Angad and Kripa and their intense rivalry (which will eventually turn into friendship and then into love, but as of now, just watch the screen explode with fireworks!)
The episode begins with Kripa leaving the Outhouse for the Academy, where she meets up with Harshini (the other girl has been changed, the new one is ions better!), as these two leave for the Academy, Kartik's Car draws near them and surprise of surprise, Kartik tell Kripa that he will drop both of them to the Academy. Kripa is naturally surprised, but then politely declines. Kartik just ignores her saying no and insists on dropping them.
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO
While on the way, Kartik stops the Car infront of the ''Soul Music Studio'' and Kripa is taken aback. On asking, Kartik tells her that he has some work at the Studio, he will wrap it off and then drop both of them at the Academy. Kartik then very sweetly offers the girls that they can both have a look at the Studio and some recording that is going on inside. Kripa is initially apprehensive, but Harshini gets pretty excited and then both of them follow Kartik to the studio. Kartik seats both of them in the reception area and vanishes. As Kripa looks around, her heart stops for a moment, as the Studio is full of Angad's pictures and Kripa realizes that she is unable to look at them. She avoids the memories of that eventful night which changed her whole thinking and attitude towards Angad and then tries to shut her eyes toward his pictures. Just then, the scene, that I was waiting for ANGAD'S BOOMING VOICE IS HEARD FROM OUTSIDE!
COOLEST SCENE OF KYPH TILL DATE!
As an excited Harshini and an anxious Kripa looks sideways, they watch Angad entering the reception area looking like a Million Dollors! He is dressed in his trademark Denim jeans and jackets and has one of his ears pierced, he has a very attractive neck-piece and his hair is casually parted. Angad is completely oblivious to both the girls, as he walks toward the main Studio, he is greeted by Mannan (looking very cute, btw) and both of them sort of share a joke. Kripa is still stunned at the shock of seeing Angad again, and she remembers the same night once more and figets around very uncomfortably. Then in a very cool scene, Angad suddenly notices Kripa and Harshini and in the cutest manner possible, asks Mannan that, ''Yaar yeh dono ladkiyan kaun hai, pehle toh kabhi nahin dekha.'' Mannan lets out a small laughter and says, ''Yaar left waali ka toh pata nahin, magar jo ladki right par bethi hai, tu use kaise bhool gaya.'' Angad gets very curious and still smiling mischievously, he wonders aloud to Mannan that is she one of his ex-girlfriends or what. Mannan is very amused and says that, rack your brains buddy and remember who she is. Angad is like, is she someone whom he knows from the US, Mannan is now really enjoying and he keeps grinning and saying no, then Angad asks if he knows her from Australia or UK, Mannan says that come closer buddy. Angad has a very surprised expression on his face and says, no way, I know this girl from Mumbai, that's impossible, ''Yeh kaunsi waali girlfriend hai, yaar?'' Mannan now bursts out laughing and says that she is the same girl with whom you were caught in the Outhouse when you had fallen over her and a major controversy was averted in the last moment. Mannan then says that she is Kripa, your Dad's old friend's daughter. Angad has a ''Oh, so that is who she is….interesting, very interesting'' type of look and then gets a naughty glint in his eyes and whispers in a very conspiratorial manner to Mannan, that, ''Yaar ab is ladki se toh ek official mulakat karni hi hogi, she deservers this.'' (Cocky chap, this one is!) Mannan is like, whatever you say buddy. Angad very confidently strides towards Kripa, who looks ready to die, as she watches Angad walking towards her with a partly curious, partly amused expression, Harshini looks like she is going to faint out of excitement, as Kripa gets up,
Angad forwards his hand (he was donning a really cool silver bracelet, looked especially good in his arms!) and smiling (again he has a curious look on his face) says, ''Hi, I am Angad.'' Kripa just keeps looking at him, and then she remembers the first time she had seen Angad on stage and he had touched her hands while hi-fying with his fans and then she remembers the night when Angad had come to the Outhouse and thrown his jacket on her face and then how he had tripped and fallen over her, then she remembers his interview in which he had waxed eloquent about love and then she remembers the night he had got that girl with him to the Outhouse and all that tirade of his against love. Kripa's petrified face turns into one filled with disgust and loathing and she just utters a curt ,''Hi'' and walks away from Angad, who is completely taken unawares. Harshini is like, whats' wrong with you Kripa, and as a very surprised Mannan looks on, Angad is just so stunned that he is unable to react, he then turns back to look at Mannan and has a, what's up with her, kind of expression.
Kripa refuses to look at Angad, while Mannan walks towards him and whispers, howz that for a change. Angad gives a, oh yeah, I have seen that routine before, kind of look, while Mannan grins and says that, oh she is one of those playing hard to get types, ''Tujhe impress karne ke chakkar mein hai''. Mannan lets out a Catty smile and says (I loved the way he says this line), ''Yaar, yeh jo playing hard to get waali types hoti hain naa, they are the easiest to get in the end.'' And both Mannan and Angad break out laughing, while Harshini goes to Kripa and asks her what has gone wrong with her. By this time Anu Mallik, the big bore, has made his entry and after some amount of back-slapping and general bonhomie, Anu and Angad go inside the recording room for session along with Mannan in tow. Harshini tells Kripa, that Angad being such a huge rock star personally came to her and wished her, she did not even have the courtesy to shake hands with him and gave him such a cold response, what would he be thinking of her. Kripa refuses to say anything, but her eyes well up with tears as she keeps thinking of Angad's night out with that girl (the scene keeps flashing infront of her eyes).
Simultaneously, Angad is shown recording for some song, and he complains rather sweetly to Anu Mallik that why is he always given these soppy, love songs to record and why not something different. Anu Mallik chides him back playfully that Love is an all time bestseller and that Angad's voice suits love songs. Angad is like, yeah whatever and then completes the record session. Anu Mallik is shown to be very happy and tells him that Angad should never forget that love is his forte and that his fortune lies in singing such songs. Angad then walks out of the studio, Harshini and Kripa are still seated there, while Kripa is thinking of the times when she was in Nainital and had bruised her leg to get home quickly so that she would not miss Angad's concert and then she thinks of his pic that she had hidden under her pillow, and then she is not able to stop her tears. Harshini asks her what is it that is bothering her so much, to which Kripa says that (lovely dialogue) ''Angad mera aadarsh tha, who insaan tha jiski mein itni izzat karti thi, jab apne aadarsh ko apni hi aankhon ke saamne jhoota bante dekho, toh dil par kya goozarti hai, who tum nahin samaj paaogi.'' Harshini who is not aware of the background is not able to understand but gets an idea that something has occurred between Angad and Kripa that has broken her spirit in such a way. Angad comes out of the recording room, and his cell phone rings, as Kripa listens to his conversation, he is shown to talk to some girl and then fixes up a date with her at 8 in the evening and then very casually plops his phone back. Just then some cheap looking girl enters (wearing a strange outfit!!!) and Angad goes like, ''Oh No'' (he looked very cute in this scene, quite reminiscent of Saif Ali Khan from Dil Chahta Hai!) while the girl goes all ga ga over him and tells him that they have to go tonight for a date. Angad very seriously tells her that he has to go out for Dinner with Mom and Dad (Sure, sure!) at 8 today and hence he wouldn't be able to make it. The girl is highly disappointed and tells Angad that he is always avoiding her, Angad has a bored expression on his face and somehow disperses her off and then heaves a sigh of relief. Kripa is now positively disgusted as Mannan comes from behind and both he and Angad make fun of the girl who just went out (Boys, I tell you….) Kripa just stand up and walks straight out with Harshini in tow, who has now understood what is so bothering Kripa.
Cute little Prithvi is shown to sit and stare at his notebook, he is apparently trying to complete his poem, but his concentration is someplace else. As he repeats the lines of the poems, he keeps remembering Kripa garlanding him and he blushes to himself (that was really cute!) Just then Mishti comes from behind, looking really smart, and hugs him and calls him, ''Bhaiyaa.''(So, our guess that Mishti and Prithvi are siblings is correct after all!) Both the brother and sister are shown to share a very affectionate relationship and they both pull each other's legs, Mishti is shown to have deep respect and love for Prithvi, whom we get to know is basically a very shy, introverted person, but highly regarded by everyone around. Mishti teases Prithvi about getting a girlfriend for himself and that he is way to straightforward and decent for these times. Prithvi is like, ok, ok, now don't start again. They both leave for the academy.
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO
As soon as Kripa exists outside the Studio, a hoard of Media persons encounter her and barrage her with questions on how she feels to get a break with Angad, and how did she manage such an opportunity. Kripa is shell-shocked and is shown to go blank, as she tries to grapple with the onslaught of the Media on her. Just then Kartik comes from behind and protects her from the journo's and takes her to a corner, where he scolds her for coming out of the Studio. Kripa is still shocked and asks Kartik what were these people talking about, Kartik gives her a very cold look and tells her that they have decided to launch her in Angad's next album, Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai and that she should thank her lucky stars to be getting such a break, when half the world outside was struggling to reach someplace. Kartik tells her that rehearsals will began from tomorrow morning and that she better be on time. Harshini and Kripa leave for the Academy in Kartik's Car.
SOUL ACADEMY (CAMPUS)
Kripa and Harshini are shown to be in a bitter argument, where Kripa tells Harshini very stubbornly that she will never sing along with Angad. Harshini is irritated and tells her that why is she being so pig-headed and people dream all their lives to get such a big break and that Kripa is unnecessarily making a mountain out of a mole hill. Kripa gets very emotional and replies back to Harshini that she came to Mumbai to learn Music and not make a career, she says that she is not ambition and that is the way she is. Harshini explains to her that, she should be grateful to the Khanna's who have given her such an opportunity and that it was her dream to meet Angad, now she will actually be singing along with him, what else can she want. Kripa tells Harshini that for every note she sang, the Music within her began and ended with Angad and that he was the reason she wanted to sing and her passion of music started with him. But after all that she has seen of Angad, the way he treats people, his corrupt values and morals, his belief in the non-existence of love, she is badly let down and that she cannot dream of singing, especially along with him. Kripa says that she has got over her obessession of Angad with great pain and difficulty and that she does not want to take a chance where Angad would once again come into her life. Harshini says that it doesn't matter what Angad turned out to be, the fact is if Kripa is truly over Angad, then she should have no problems whatsoever singing along with him, he should not make any difference to her. Kripa has no answer to this and then Harshini in a mood to cheer her up takes her for a cup of coffee to the College Canteen. As Kripa and Harshini walk down the College Campus, a host of other students and professors congratulate Kripa on her good fortune to sing along with Angad and Kripa is again put off.
As Harshini and Kripa are sitting on some table, Mishti comes along and very cheerfully greets them both and congratulates Kripa very heartily and tells her that she is indeed very lucky to get a chance to sing with a super-star like Angad. Kripa feels very awkard and excuses herself to get Coffee for all of them.
Mishti is very surprised by Kripa's behavior and asks Harshini what is up with her, she looks so disappointed instead of looking excited, Harshini is not able to reply back. As Kripa gets the Coffee and turns around, she accidentally bumps into Prithvi and the Coffee falls onto his Shirt. Prithvi is stunned and keeps looking at Kripa, and then remembers the garland scene once again and a smile spreads over his face. Kripa is very embarrassed and aplogises to him, and in a very sweet manner asks him if she can wipe the stain off. Prithiv is shown to blush and says that its ok, he will manage. Mishti who is looking from far wonders what has gone wrong with Prithvi and that the time when she had poured Coffee over him by mistake, he had taken her to task the whole day, something is definitely fishy! Mishti and Harshini walk towards them and Mishti introuduces Kripa and Harshini to Prithvi, who smiles at Kripa and tells Mishti that he knows her very well, she had infact said, ''I love you'' to him, Mishti is wide-eyed, as Kripa very quickly says that, nothing like that, it was a bet with Anita. Prithvi laughs and says that he was just joking, nothing like that, but they have met before. As Mishti looks at Prithvi looking at Kripa with admiration, she lets out a smile. Kripa and Mishti both leave for some work, while Harshini gives a long-lost expression to Prithvi and introduces herself. Prithvi is still looking at Kripa who has long gone now, but very politely greets Harshini and asks her what is your friends name, to which Harshini says Kripa. Prithvi repeats her name and tells himself, what a beautiful name.
Naina is telling Kartik that Angad's World Tour is about to begin in two months and that she doesn't want Kripa around at that time. Kartik assures her that by that time, Tanya will be back from the US and then they can easily replace Kripa. Also the Media and the Public would have forgotten all this issue by then. (Tanya is apparently the lead singer along with Angad for all his Albums and Songs)
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO
The next scene shows Kripa (looking ethereal in a red salwar kameez) along with Kartik in the studio, where he is giving her some instructions about the song and tells her that she has to be on time everyday and as she is the lead singers, the others will follow suit. Kripa is first shown to be a little anxious, then as she starts singing (basically a very melodious, classical version of the title track) she closes her eyes and remembers Angad, all the moments she had spent thinking of him, when she had seen him, met him and then the bad ones. Initally as Kripa sings, everyone around her is surprised, including Kartik, and some other guy who looks very impressed, Kripa keeps singing with gusto (she just sings the note, not the actual song, btw) and then she closes her eyes and her tune goes some other way (she does not go off-note, but starts singing on another tune) and the chorus group and the others present are stunned and everyone stops and starts listening to her. Kripa is completely unawares as she is shown to be totally mesmerized and singing with full passion. As she stops and opens her eyes, she is astounded to look at Angad standing real close to her (has an awesome, powerful, passionate, angry look in his eyes) and staring at her real hard. The episode ends on Kripa's shaken face.
PROMO FOR TOMORROW
The Promo of tomorrow's episode shows, Angad passing some dirty comment on Kripa and she losing her cool and giving him one tight slap. Angad looking like he has been hit by a 100 ton brick, then getting a really cold, outraged expression on his face and raising his hands to slap her back…..
Awesome Episode, but I think tomorrow's episode will definitely take the Cake! Iqbal was just superb, he seems to be made for this role, everything from his smoldering good looks, to the boredom in his voice, to the naughty twinkle in his eyes and of course that one in a million voice just screams…ANGAD. Kripa was excellent again, but she seems to lose sheen infront of Angad's towering presence, he looks just too much for her!!! But Neha does a really good job of Kripa, her emoting abilites are very good, its only her dialogue delivery which falters a bit! There is no doubt about the fact, that Angad and Kripa share a wonderful screen chemistry, the scene in which Angad gives his hand to her to say hello, was just awesome! A special mention about Kartik, who acts very, very well! I seem to warm up to him now, he looks like a very complex character to me! The new Harshini is pretty good, but she looks very mature. Misti looked young today, but definitely not like Prithvi's younger sis! Amit fits the role of Prithvi to the T, he has an air of quite dignity and decency about him, something which makes him so endearing and adorable! His acting is just ok till now, nothing great, but he does look the part! Finally a episode, which left me exhilarated!

April 19th Update - The Slap
Kya Maara Re….bechara Angad toh gaya kaam se! Wow, what an episode, what a slap! And did Angad deserve it, oh boy! I am so rattled till now, can barely type this update! Angad rocked today, he just rocked! He looks awesome when he is angry, just mindblowing expressions and the boy knows to act, no doubt about that! Also our guess about Angad and Prithvi knowing each other is bang on target, infact they are childhood friends…..do I see parallels to Raj Kapoor's Sangam here!!! Amazing episode, the best till date, without doubt and it gives an indication of how good the serial is going to be!
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO (''THE SLAP'')
The episode begins with Kripa going La…La…La (KYPH's signature tune), and her shocked face as she stares at Angad who is giving her the look of the year!!! Staring at her with a strange mix of expressions, Kripa just keeps staring back at him, and the Camera focuses on both their faces one by one! Kripa has a slightly petrified, drawn-back expression and Angad has a partly curious, partly amazed look. Everyone around, mainly Mannan, the Choreographer and the Chorus group is looking at Angad and Kripa, staring at each other without even blinking their eyes. Then in the most adorable way, Angad breaks into an endearing grin and claps his hand, as a stunned Kripa looks on, everyone else too joins Angad, as he tells her that you sang wonderfully, then he looks at Mannan and the Choreographer and says that, ''Kya gaati hai yaar ye ladki, I am impressed.'' Kripa just looks at Angad and does not say anything, then in the most unexpected twist, a girl who was standing behind Kripa, drops her bottle of water on the floor, Kripa turns back and bends to pick it up, and then, in what I thought was an extremely well-conceived scene, Angad who is still raving about Kripa turns back to her and, hold your breath, ''PATS HER BUMS'' in a very casual manner. Can you believe it, I was like, Whoa, I never thought of this! Kripa who is still bent is shown to be stupidified and she stands up straight and just stares hard at Angad and then, ''SLAPS HIM REAL HARD ON HIS CHEEKS.'' Everyone around is just rooted in their spots, as the Camera focuses on just Kripa's outraged expression and Angad's stunned face, he is just too shocked to react, then Kripa screams on him and tells him, ''Don't you dare touch me again.'' Angad's expression changes from a shocked one to that of complete anger and outrage and his eyes burn with intensity as he just keep staring hard at Kripa, who also doesn't flinch. Angad then raises his hands and Kripa is shown to be scared out of her wits, everyone around is just dead quiet, Angad then brings his hands down, as Kripa is shown to catch hold of her breath, but she does not flinch from her spot, nor does she lower or avert her eyes from him. Angad still has a livid expression on her face, and then suddenly he moves towards her, Kripa who looks as if she is going to die any minute, moves back, Angad keeps moving towards her and she keeps moving back, and both of them do not take their eyes of each other (boy, it was so romantic, so passionate, so exciting) and then Kripa's back hits the wall and Angad comes very, very close to her (I thought that he will kiss her at this moment, how disappointing!) and as Kripa (who seems to be so scared that she is not even breathing) looks on, Mannan calls Angad's name from behind very slowly as if to stop him, Angad who still does not take his eyes of Kripa (Man, is he intense or what) stops Mannan by just raising his hands and Mannan is quiet. Angad then brings his hands up in the same position and raises to slap Kripa, and in a stunningly brilliant scene, brings his hands very close to her face and smashes it on the Wall (Gals, I was this close to having a heart-attack in this scene!) and then brings himself even closer to Kripa and says in a cold, icy tone, laid with incense and fuming with anger, ''Get Out'' ''Right now, abhi isi waqt yahan se dafa ho jao.'' Then screams at the top of his voice, ''I said just Get Out'' Kripa is completely rattled and her eyes well up with tears and she just walks out (I liked the fact that she walks out and does not run outside, good for her!). Angad is then shown to be livid with rage and is barely able to control his trembling, he is still staring at the door through which Kripa has just exited and then he gives a cold stare at Mannan and tells him that he does not want to see her face ever again and she has to be thrown out right now and then. Mannan is just too shaken to react and just nods his head.
In the next scene, Angad is boxing at his home (looking va..va…vroom!) and has the same intense, angry look on his face and keeps remembering Kripa's resounding slap to him and boxes even harder. Mannan comes from behind and asks him if he is Ok. Angad who is still punching hard, does not stop and tells Mannan that how dare that girl slap him and that too in front of his own troupe and juniors. Mannan tells him to just cool down and says that he should not have thrown her out in this manner. Angad stops punching and gives a furious look at Mannan and tells him that, the girl slapped him, slapped Angad, he will never forget this insult and she will have to be taught a lesson. Mannan does not reply back, then Angad thinks something to himself and then replies in a terse voice that he wants that girl back for the rehersals. Mannan is like, but why, she slapped you infront of the whole world and then you threw her out in such a bad manner, now you want her back. Angad pours himself a drink (and does he look Dishy when he does that!) and after taking a sip, tells Mannan, that no one till date has had the guts to even raise his voice against Angad, and that wisp of a girl actually slapped him. Angad says that by throwing her out of the house and out of the Studio, it will be letting her go very easily, he will even out with her in a manner that she will never forget it for her whole life. Mannan is not very pleased, but is also not in a mood to counter Angad and tells him that she will never come to the rehearsals. Angad gives a devil-may-care smile (that's his signature smile btw, which has Nitica & Me particularly go weak in the knees!) and says that she will come back, she will surely come back, when Angad goes to her and gets her for the rehearsals. Mannan just keeps quiet and offers no opinon.
THE OUTHOUSE (BRILLIANT ANGAD-KRIPA SCENE)
The next scene shows Kripa alone in the Outhouse in her room, crying and thinking about what happened, when someone knocks the door. As Kripa opens it, she is stunned to see Angad standing there, with one of his hands resting on the door and he gives a hostile stare at Kripa. She just gives one look, makes a face and goes inside. Angad follows her inside and both of them have an awesome confrontation. I could not follow this scene too well, as my cell phone rang at the wrong time! But I remember one brilliant line that Angad says to Kripa, ''You have slapped Angad the Man, not Angad the Star.'' (Brings out the guys smoldering strength so well) As Kripa listens to Angad with loathing and disgust, Angad tells her that he did not mean to touch her in any such way that she is imagining and that he has no dearth of girls. Angad says that he has such power and influence that he can get any girl that he wants, any time of the day, then in a powerful sequence, he stands straight infront of Kripa and says, ''Tum Bhi, Kripa, tum Bhi.'' Kripa is just too disgusted to say anything and just gives a ''Oh lay off you creepo'' type of look! Angad says that he is not letting go off her that easily and that he will make her pay for her insult to him today. Angad then tells her to join rehearsals from tomorrow morning, Kripa is shocked and tells him pretty harshly that she won't come and why should she come, especially after he has thrown her out of the Studio infront of everyone and told her not to show her face again. Angad gives her a, who cares to explain to you, type of look and then says that is she afraid of him, that is why she is refusing to join him. Then Angad lets out a small smile and says that, is she too like one of his innumerable fans, and this was just one of her ploys to attract him (boy, is he cocky) and that she does not want to join him for the rehersals because she is afraid that she will be madly attracted to him and probably fall in love with him. Kripa just gives a dirty look at Angad and tells him to stop day-dreaming and says that she does not care two hoots for him and he can just get lost. Angad then provokes her and tells her that if she has any guts in her, then he wants to see her tomorrow morning at the rehearsals. In a powerful sequence, Kripa gives a hard, cold stare at Angad and tells him that, ''I accept your challenge.'' Angad too keeps staring at her and tells her that, no, not like that, you have to sign a contract, which will bind you to complete this assignment. Kripa does not think or even bother to read the papers and just snatches from him and signs them and pushes them in Angad's hands. Angad gives her a ''just wait and watch baby, just wait and watch what I do with you'', look and walks out of the room, as Kripa is left emotionally shattered!
CAFETERIA (SOUL ACADEMY)
Prithvi and Mishti are sitting together and Prithvi looks lost in his thoughts. Mishti starts pulling his legs (thankfully she calls him by his name and not address him as Bhaiyaa!) over Kripa. Prithvi blushes like mad and tells her to shut-up. All the while Kripa (wearing a very pretty lilac salwar kameez) is sitting on a table just behind them, but she looks very lost and sad as usual, Misthi has noticed her, but Prithvi has not. Mishti deliberately asks Prithvi questions on Kripa and whether he likes her or not, Prithvi just brushes her off. Then Mishti calls Kripa to join them, and then leave both Prithvi and Kripa behind, and whispers best of luck to him! Prithvi tries to make small talk with Kripa, but she is very disturbed and then Prithvi asks her very sweetly that is she upset over something, Kripa just smiles and avoids answering him. Prithvi then in a bid to cheer her up tells her to join Mishti and him for a Party tonight, Kripa very politely refuses, but then Mishti comes and insists her on joining them.
DISCOTHEQUE (POTENTIALLY ROMANTIC ANGAD-KRIPA SCENE)
Kripa, Prithvi and Mishti enter the discoteque, Mishti vanishes with her friends and Prithvi and Kripa are left by themselves! Kripa looks very lost and upset, and her eyes seem to search for Harshini, she asks Prithvi if he has seen her around, Prithvi is least bothered and in his very cute, innocent way, tells Kripa that she is looking very beautiful tonight. Kripa just smiles and says thanks (she did not blush, just smiled!) and then Angad enters the Disc, looking incredibly handsome in a white Tee and Blue denims (One this chap is blessed with such looks, on top of that he dresses to kill) and everyone in the disc gather around him for his autographs. Angad just gives a bored smile and obliges everyone, Prithvi's face has a sweet smile as he looks at Angad (indicating that they know each other very well) but Kripa refuses to turn and look at him, and her face goes all sour and upset once again! As Angad is busy signing autographs, his eyes fall on Kripa's back, and he recognizes her, he stops signing and just keeps staring at her, at the same moment, Kripa too looks back and both of them give each other a hostile, hard look. Kripa just walks out from there, making Prithvi wonder what's up with her. Angad is still mingling with his fans and friends, while his eyes don't leave Kripa (boy, is he romantic or what!) who goes to a corner and stands there looking miserable and lonely. Two drunkards who are standing nearby start acting fresh with Kripa, (Prithvi is nowhere to be seen, btw!) and Kripa tells one of them to stay away from her, and that he stinks of Alcohol, but both the guys act very cheaply with her and they kind of over-power her. Just then, in what I felt was such an Angad-Kripa seen, Angad who is looking at the whole proceedings, gets an irate look on his face and he walks towards Kripa and holds one of the guy's arms very tightly and tells him to just lay off. Both the creeps who obviously know Angad and are apparently scared of him, back off immediately. Kripa who looks ready to cry, heaves a sigh of relief but then realizes who her savior is!!! Angad brushes off those guys very coolly and then just gives that look of his to Kripa, who is now quite embarrassed and not able to look at Angad directly. Prithvi comes over and asks if everything is alright, Kripa assures him that's its ok. Prithvi and Angad then smile at each other and then as a stunned Kripa looks on, hug each other pretty affectionately, while Prithvi tells Kripa that Angad is one of his oldest and best friends and their families know each other very intimately. Kripa does not offer any reaction, while Angad keeps looking at her (he will just melt her one day like butter, if he keeps giving those looks of his!) Prithvi then very jovially asks Angad how are the rehearsals coming along and how is her friend progressing! Angad smiles sarcastically, which Prithvi does not seem to catch and then in his inimitable style tells Prithvi, that he should drop over to the Studio one day and see how his ''Friend'' is progressing. Kripa immediately senses the sarcasm in his voice and just looks at Angad with no expression, she still looks embarrassed. As Angad leaves to join his friends at the Dance Floor, Kripa says softly, ''Angad, thank you.'' Angad does not even bother to turn his head and just makes a, who cares expression and in a very snooty, arrogant manner walks off, leaving Kripa all the more miserable. Prithvi who's is not noticing this sequence!
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO (DANCE SESSION B/W ANGAD AND KRIPA)
Angad, looking his usual dapper self, in the same Sandoz (the red and white one, that he wore in the outhouse scene!) and Kripa, dressed in a lovely White Salwar Kameez are getting instructions from the Choreographer on the dance step. The song is ''Sholo si, Sholo si, teri aankhon ki yeh roshni, kiske liye hai…'' from the movie Shabd (Sanjay Dutt and Aishwarya Rai danced on this, lovely, racy number) and then Angad and Kripa began dancing, they are doing the Waltz, where the guy pulls the girl's arms towards him and she will twist and swirl to fall on his arms (the signature Angad-Kripa scene). Kripa is doing well, and Angad seems to be least affected by her, but the moment, she comes and falls on his arms, and he touches her cheeks with his fingers (as part of the choreography), Kripa is completely disgusted and stops dancing. Angad is very irritated as the choreographer asks Kripa what has gone wrong with her, she was doing fine till now. Kripa is embarrassed, and does not reply back, Angad is still staring at her coldly.
THIS WAS A BRILLIANT SCENE…..CONTINUATION OF THE ABOVE ONE!
As the Music starts again, Kripa and Angad once more start dancing on the same steps and then suddenly as Kripa is shown to follow the steps perfectly fine, Angad's expression's undergo a dramatic change, and his face turns from a perfectly indifferent one to one filled with revenge and passion. He remembers Kripa's resounding slap to her and then her word, ''Don't you dare touch me again'' and then a madness comes in his eyes and he brings Kripa close to him with such ferocity and heatedness, it was just too powerful a scene. Angad keeps getting repeated flashes of Kripa slapping him and he keeps making Kripa dance forcibly with him, very roughly, he twists and twirls her and keeps banging her against him, as Kripa's words keep echoing in his thoughts. Everyone else is stunned and all of them stop where they are, but no one has the guts to stop Angad, Mannan looks petrified and so does the choreographer. Kripa is shown to be too dazed, and then after doing this to Kripa a number of time, never once leaving his eyes from her, he leaves her arms with full force and she falls real hard on the floor, as Angad gives her his trademark, angry stare, and Kripa winces in extreme pain, her eyes well up with tears as she looks towards Angad, who has a look of, ''The Battle-lines are drawn lady.''
Brilliant Episode. I have no word to describe the rush of Adrenaline I felt while watching it! Angad rocked like no one else in this episode, be it his powerful expressions, his anger, his smile, his dialogue delivery, the passion and intensity with which he looks at Kripa while dancing, he was just too good!!! Kudos! Kripa, in herself is adorable and acts very well, but does not seem to shine all that much in the dramatic sequences, especially in front of Angad, who seems to physically and otherwise overpower everyone around him. But I still stand by the fact that Neha does a very good job of Kripa and she is going to get better and better. Regarding Prithvi, well, he is really cute, and acts pretty decently, but then again his character and for that matter everyone else's is overshawdowed badly by Angad's! I guess that was the reason why Ekta was delaying his entry, she had to give other's some chance, before her Hero made an entry and swept everyone off their feets!
Otherwise a great episode and I for one felt that Kripa slapping Angad was JUSTIFIED. And I loved the way Angad reacts to it……it was an incredibly passionate and romantic scene! Amazing episode guys, just amazing!!! Hope all of you catch it!
