April 20th Update
What an episode! I am now completely torn between my loyalties for Angad & Prithvi! And our guess about the Angad – Mishti connection is proving to be right, but in a totally different angle! Also, Tania is very cute to look at and madly in love with Angad (who isn't), but he treats as a buddy! Also, Prithvi and Mishti's mom made an entrance, she seems to be a complex character, but mostly on the positive side! And the most important thing, there was so much of sizzle, sizzle between Angad and Kripa, and we got to see a glimpse of Angad's softer side today….and also Kripa still holds a candle for Angad, no doubt about that! And finally, after watching today's episode, I can fairly assess what the future storyline is going to be like! Back to the update!
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO
The episode begins with Angad twisting & turning poor Kripa all around him like a pendulum, with that revengeful look in his eyes and then letting go of her arms forcibly, she falls down with great impact and obviously hurts herself very badly! (Poor thing, felt so pitiful for her) Kripa winces in extreme pain, her eyes well up with tears, of both the physical hurt and also of the humiliation, Angad looks down at her and she looks back at him, both of them have a starting session, and then Angad gets a, ''Oops I am so sorry'' look and offers his hand to Kripa to help her get up, he actually apologizes, but with a very patronizing air, as if he intends to let Kripa know that it was deliberate. Kripa keeps looking at him, she looks in enormous pain, Angad then nods his hand as if to insist Kripa on holding it and getting up, just then another hand goes down to Kripa and as a surprised Angad looks sideways, its Prithvi, who first throws an upset look at Angad and then looks at Kripa with sympathy and affection and then in a brilliant sequence, Kripa gives one cold look at Angad and then takes up Prithvi hand and gets up with his support. Angad is taken aback and then gets a slightly jealous look on his face, I think it was more of a snubbed type of look, but it also had a hint of possessiveness! Kripa is wincing in pain, and as she hobbles along with Prithvi's help, who looks miserable after seeing Kripa in such pain (oh, Prithvi is such a doll, who won't love him guys!) takes her to a corner. Just then Angad who keeps staring at Prithvi and Kripa for some time, then tells the choreographer and the rest of his gang, let the rehearsals begin, as soon as he says this, both Prithvi and Kripa get a resentful and hurtful look in their eyes and they turn to look at Angad, who smiles devilishly and says that he can see that Kripa is hurt, she can go home and take rest, the rest of them will continue. Kripa and Angad stare at each other real hard, and then Kripa lets go off Prithvi's arms and tells Angad that she will continue to rehearse along with him. Prithvi looks positively shocked and Angad is completely taken aback and for a moment, his expression softens. Prithvi tries to butt in and tell Kripa that she has hurt herself very badly and that she should not dance, but Kripa tells him that she is ok and she wants to continue. The dance continues with Angad, ever so ruthlessly dances with Kripa, who is dying out of pain, but her self-respect refuses to give up and she completes the session. Prithvi looks miserable at Kripa's state, and Angad is both confused and irritated at the same time at Kripa's response to him. After the session is over, Kripa just throws a glance to Angad as if to indicate that she would not bend infront of him ever, and then picks her bag and walks out with Prithvi, who in his sweet manner takes the bag from her and escorts her to the Outhouse.
Prithvi drops Kripa to her room and asks her if she is alright. Kripa is still thinking of Angad and the way he had so forcibly danced with her and hurt her so badly and then how he had given his hand to help her stand up. Prithvi tells Kripa that she should take rest and get a hot water bottle for herself (awww, how cute can this guy get, chaps!), Kripa is still lost in her own world, she nods and says bye to Prithvi who keeps giving her such cute, lovelorn looks. As Kripa enters her room, she turns back and looks at Prithvi with affection and respect and a smile spreads her face, Prithvi inturn smiles back at her an then the garland scene flashes across his eyes and he kind of blushes and leaves the Outhouse.
THE TRIO SCENE
Its late at night and Kripa is sitting on her bed and thinking about all that happened at the rehearsals and then she tells herself that why is she thinking of Angad so harshly and why is she losing her temper at him everytime and misunderstanding all his motives. The Butt-slapping scene keeps flashing across her mind, then the dance sequence where he was so rough with her and then the one where he gives his hand to her.
At the same time Angad (looking absolutely dishy) is sitting on his bed and thinking of the same stuff that happened at the rehearsals and then Kripa's eyes keeps flashing before his face and he gets very restless. Angad thinks to himself why is he getting so irritated by Kripa unnecessarily and why is he treating her like this (see, basically he is a good chap!).
Meanwhile, Prithvi is shown in his room and thinking of yet again the same scene and how Kripa had winced in pain and how much it had hurt him.
The background score of Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai plays and then the scene freezes Angad and Kripa's face on it and then Prithvi's face comes….basically the screen is frozen to show Angad on one side, Prithvi on the other and Kripa in between, all thinking about each other! (Quite filmy, but very cute nevertheless)
PRIVATE PARTY SCENE
Naina is shown to be in a Party (this woman has nothing else to do) chatting along with some society ladies who ask her about the new girl they are launching along side Angad. Naina very patronizingly says that yes they have decided to launch a new face with Angad and give chance to newcomers also. One of the lady says that she had heard that the new girl is very talented and isn't Naina worried that she might become a bigger star than Angad, Naina gets a snooty and angry expression on her face and says very proudly that many stars have come and gone, but there has been no one like Angad till date and no one would be ever able to take his position and fame. The other ladies wisely agree with her. Naina is then shown to frantically wait for someone, when one of the ladies ask her whom is she waiting for, Naina says that her old friend, Damini is expected to come back from her World Tour and that she is dying to catch up with her. Just then a woman, with long hair and dressed in White is shown to enter and Naina's face lights up like a thousand bulbs when she sees her. The Camera focuses on her face, its none other than the Jaya Bhattacharya (who plays Payal in KSBKBT) looking very different in a halter neck blouse and a white Saree with lots of weird jewellery and a big red bindi. Both the old friends greet each other affectionately and Naina tells her that she has so much to catch up on with Damini. They both go to a quiet corner and have a conversation, through which we come to know that Damini is a very successful, extremely rich (richer than the Khanna's, I suppose) entrepreneur and a widow. Damini is basically the head of a huge event management conglomerate and arranges all of Angad's shows. Then we come to know that she is also the Mother of Prithvi and Mishti and a very good one at that. Damini comes across to be a dedicated family person unlike Naina and handles both her business and her family very well. Naina then talks about Mishti and Angad's marriage (what about Kartik, was he adopted out of a dustbin, how does she always forget him?) and says that it is her dream to see Mishti as the Bahu of her house. Damini is shown to get very uncomfortable at the mention of this and tries to brush off the topic. Naina mentions to her that even though Angad has had lots of women in his life, he has never fallen in love with anyone and that he deserves a girl who would teach him the value of love and none best than Mishti for that. Damini does not seem to pleased by the idea but offers no opinion on this.
THE OUTHOUSE (VERY ROMANTIC SCENE)
Angad is shown to toss in his bed restlessly, not able to sleep, he switches on the bed-side lamp and looks at the clock, its 2 Am at night. He gets up and searches for his sleeping pills, but finds that the bottle is empty. Angad gets a frustrated look on his face and thinks to himself that he has to get some pills else he won't be able to sleep a wink. He remembers that a bottle of it is kept in the Outhouse and goes to fetch it.
As Angad enter the Outhouse, he see's the door open and then keeps standing where he is as he looks at Kripa, who has her headphones on her ears and is singing the tune of the title track, completely engrossed in her music. Angad keeps staring at her and a lot of screen time is shown with Angad giving her a strange, curious mix of expressions, half enchanted, half fascinated, partly mesmerized and partly irritated. Just then the lights go off and Kripa's eyes open in shock that someone is standing behind her back. BEAUTIFUL SCENE! As Kripa turns back, to her horror its Angad who is looking at her with burning intensity and a mad passion rages in his eyes, it looks as if he is going to gobble her up right away! Kripa is just too stunned to react and keeps looking at him, then Angad lights up his lighter and brings it to Kripa's face, she steps back petrified, he moves towards her, she steps back even further, he keeps moving toward her, not once taking his eyes from her face, she too is looking at him, but while Angad has a passionate, intense look on his face, Kripa is scared out of her wits. Kripa then reaches the far end of the room and Angad gets even closer to her, then he brings the lighter closer to her face and the room goes still with both of them facing each other in close quarters for some moment (I had goose p***les in this particular sequence) and then he lights a candle besides her. Kripa gets her breath back and the lights come back. Kripa suddenly gets very angry and tell him curtly that she knows its his house, but he has no right to barge into anyone's room in the middle of night. Angad completely ignores her and opens the drawer, gets the bottle of sleeping pills and closes the drawer and gives one look at Kripa, who is taken aback slightly, as she looks at the bottle of medicines in Angad's hands. Angad turns and exists towards the door, and in a brilliant Angad scene (I completely loved him for this) tell Kripa, without looking back at her, ''Agar tum nahin chahati ke aadhi raat ko koi tumhare kamre mein aaye, toh apne kamre ka darwaaza band karna sikho.'' As Kripa keeps staring at Angad, stupidified and stunned beyond imagination, Angad goes out shutting the door close with full force.
Meanwhile Anita overlooks Angad with Kripa in the outhouse and in a covert manner tells this to Naina, who brushes it off by saying that Angad would not even care to give a look at a girl like Kripa, and that she is going to get a one in a million girl for Angad, who deserves a guy like him!
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO
The choreographer is instructing the steps to the Chorus group and then she tells a step to Angad who immediately grasps it. The choreographer then asks Angad where is his partner, for which Angad has no answer and then just makes a wry face, then both of them practice a step, and as Angad dances with the choreographer, and as she falls on his arms, he is completely taken aback, as he sees Kripa instead of the Choreographer and he pulls himself back in amazement and shock at his thoughts! Just then Kripa enters and apologizes for the delay, Angad just gives her a dirty stare while Kripa has no expressions. Both Angad and Kripa began rehearsing the dance sequence and Angad again has the same maddened look in his eyes but tries hard to stop himself from repeating what he did to Kripa yesterday. Just then Naina and Karitk enter and tell Angad that there is a good news and that Tania is back. As poor Kripa looks on surprised and shocked, Naina tells her that she can join the Chorus group and that Angad's regular partner is back from her vacation. Angad is shown to be elated and gives a victorious look at Kripa who, poor thing looks shattered and heart-broken, while Kartik, surprisingly looks feeling bad for Kripa. Just then a girl is shown to enter and in typical Ekta Kapoor style, her legs, eyes, hair is shown is bits and pieces and then finally the gal herself. Tania is very cute to look at, almost childlike, very similar to Kripa but kind of cuter than Kripa who is more on the prettier side! Angad and Tania hug each other very affectionately and Angad gives her a very buddy-buddy type of hug, while Tania looks completely love-struck by him and gives an envious look at Kripa, who poor thing, moves back to the Chorus group. The chorus group is shown to be disgusted and one of them tells Kripa that this is so unfair, why isn't she saying anything, Kripa who obviously is heart broken, holds back her emotion and says that it hardly matters to her if she performs as the main lead or with the chorus, she has signed an agreement, she just wants to complete that and get over with it.
Naina and Kartik are shown to have a conversation where Kartik tries to defend Kripa but in his own way and tells Naina that she should not have done this to Kripa and what will the Media think if they come to know of this. Naina is least bothered and tells Kartik that they will issue a statement that they gave a chance to the new girl, but she was not talented enough to perform with Angad and that is why they put her in the Chorus group. Kartik looks disgusted with Naina but does not say anything.
The dance begins again and Kripa along with the other chorus girls has to do a step with Angad in which he will hold her arm and twist her from one side to his other side, but as soon as Angad gives his hand to Kripa, she is unable to touch his hand, and then the flashes of the slap scene, the butt-slapping scene comes over and over again in front of Kirpa and she is not able to dance with Angad.
Angad first keeps staring at Kripa and then loses his cool and asks her tersely what the hell is the problem with her, does she think, that he wants to touch her deliberately, does she think, that he is making a pass at her, why the hell is she so stuck-up. The episode ends with Angad losing his temper over Kripa, who looks absolutely miserable and pathetic, poor thing!
Another sizzling episode, Angad and Kripa bring the house down with their simmering chemistry! The Outhouse scene, in which Angad lights the candle and walks towards Kripa was just spine-chillingly romantic, just stopped my heart for a moment. Angad looked incredible in this scene, and Kripa's expressions were just bang on! The way Angad's eyes get a mellow look when he thinks of his treatment of Kripa had me going awww, he looks adorable, when he gets this vulnerable expression in his face!
Prithvi is just such a lovable character, and Amit brings immense dignity and serenity to the role! The way he looks at Kripa with pain and longing in his eyes could melt any one, he had lovely expressions in his eyes!
Kartik is going to be a dark horse, there is more to him than meets the eyes!
Excellent episode, thoroughtly entertaining and enjoyable. Loved the scene in which Angad, Kripa and Prithvi are shown together, frozen in the same pane…..it caught the essence of the story so beautifully! Three radically different characters, bond together by destiny, love and friendship!
I just hope that Ekta Kapoor does not turn KYPH into another KTH, because the Angad-Kripa-Prithvi nexus seems to be too close to Sujal-Kashish-Piyush thingy! Infact, if you look at the kind of characters emerging everyday, you can also see parallels to an old English Classic called, ''Wuthering Heights'', in terms of the character connections, will write on this more, sometimelater!
Good night and Sweet Dreams!

April 21st Update - Angad knows Kripa loved him
Brilliant episode. I think this one was better than the slap one, in some aspects! Kripa completely stole Angad's thunder today, her performance was just superb! And Prithvi, God, its impossible not to fall head over heels in love with him, he is just such a doll! I am warming up to Mishti in a great way and also to Kartik, who's real self is coming out in the open slowly! But the show was dominated by Angad and Kripa's dazzling confrontation scene, in which, hold your breath, Kripa discloses her deep love for Angad, as he listens dumbstruck and believe it or not, actually cries…..it was a gem of an episode, not be missed at any cost! Angad is definitely falling for Kripa and as much as she denies it, Kripa is still so in love with Angad…..gosh, these two have to get-together somehow (though I will feel miserable for Prithvi, he is an angel, he deserves someone great like him!)
SOUL MUSIC STUDIO
Angad pulls Kripa to his side and asks her in a terse and angry voice why the hell is she being so stuck up and not dancing properly, he says that he is touching her only because it is a part of the sequence and not because of anything else. Angad asks her what the hell does she think of herself that she is always acting so pricey in front of him. Kripa is furious at the same time, very upset, she tries to untangle her hand from Angad, but his grip is too strong, Kripa tells him to leave her, he refuses and asks her that she has to give him a reason why is she behaving with him in such a rude manner. Kripa somehow manages to let loose her hands and tells Angad that she does not want to see his face and as a furious Angad looks on, she picks up her bag and walks out. Tania who is overlooking the entire scene is incenced and goes behind Kripa and tells her to keep away from Angad and not try to divert his attention. Kripa initially keep mum but then tells Tania to shut up and says that she is not the least bit interested in Angad and infact she doesn't even want to see his face ever, as soon as this contract is over, she will leave Mumbai forever and never come back. As a shocked Tania listens, Kripa tells her that she not just hates Angad as a Star, she also hates him as a Human being and that he is a completely disgusting person who turns her off. As Kripa walks away crying and angry, Angad listens to the whole conversation and his face his red with outrage and as a confused Tania tries to stop him, Angad follows Kripa.
THE OUTHOUSE – BRILLIANT ANGAD-KRIPA CONFRONTATION SCENE, THE BEST SO FAR!
Kripa goes into her room and breaks down crying badly as she is not able to come to terms with her emotions for Angad and the reality that faces her today. Just then a mad with rage Angad comes inside her room and confronts her to tell him what the hell is wrong with her and what the hell did she just tell Tania. Kripa tells him that she told Tania that Angad did not affect her in any which way and that she is not interested in him at all. Angad gets an irritated look on his face and tells her that he is not bothered whether she is interested in him or not because he doesn't care one damn for her. But what else did she tell Tania about him. How dare she say that Angad is not a good human being and what right does she have to pass judgement on him. Then in a lovely scene, Angad who is bellowing over Kripa, accidentally throws open a drawer and his pictures and posters fly all over the room. Kripa is frozen where she is, and Angad at first is dumbstruck, then he gets an evil, sarcastic, knowing smile over his face! He insults Kripa in the most vile manner by saying that he thought that Kripa was a girl with tremendous self-respect and that she was different from the others. But now he knows that she was just trying to gain Angad's attention by showing herself to be a different person, she after all turned out to be one of his innumerable fans. Angad tells Kripa, who is just silent as a stone, that if she was so desperate to call for his attention, she had no need to slap him and that too in front of so many people, and that she is a hypocrite and attention seeker. Angad then starts laughing on Kripa and picks up one of his pictures on which Kripa has written ''I love you Angad'' and then tells her cuttingly that he can see through her entire gameplan, this was just a ploy to attract his attention and that is why she came to stay in the Outhouse so that she can run into him more and more.
As Angad finishes his tirade against Kripa, she turns and then has a brilliant dialogues, I am just trying to get the essence of all that she said, but it was a lovely scene, which brought tears to my eyes! Kripa's who's eyes are now overflowing with tears tells Angad that yes she loved him, loved him with all her heart, loved him like she had never loved anyone before. Kripa says that Angad was her first and only love, he was the reason for her smiles, her happiness, her joys, her excitement. He was the beginning of her day and the end of her nights, he was the Sun who brightened her mornings, the moon which lulled her to sleep. Every time a breeze touched Kripa's face, she could feel Angad's breath in it, every time a rain-drop kissed her cheeks, she could feel Angad's touch in it. Every note that Kripa sang, was drenched in the love for Angad, he was the music of her life. Kripa says that Angad was the only human being she loved and worshipped before God and that he was the reason for her living. Kripa says that she spent innumerable days praying to God that just once she should meet the man whom she has worshipped and adored so much. Angad's views and belief in love made Kripa believe that true love existed in life and that he is the reason that she started believing in love.
Kripa then says that after meeting Angad, she lost all her dreams, hopes and happiness in just one go. He not just shattered her illusion, he broke her heart into a thousand pieces and that she will never be able to gather them for the rest of her life. Kripa tells him that the night she heard him telling that love is a commodity for him and he has no value for it, she lost faith not just in him, she lost faith in herself. With Angad's love vanishing from her heart, Kripa lost the zest for life and the hope that she will ever believe in love again. Kripa tells him the reason for her reacting toward Angad negatively was the most natural reaction in the world for anyone who's whole life comes crashing down in one moment. Kripa tells Angad that she no longer loves Angad nor does she believe in love anymore and that these pictures and posters and Angad himself make no difference to her. The love and respect she had for Angad has gone in a second and that it will never come back.
All the while Angad is shown to go through a gamut of emotions, from a cocky expression, to a shocked one, to a dazed one and then one to realization and regret. His eyes fill with tears as he listens to Kripa tearing her heart open and her pain and anguish reflects in his eyes, as Angad realizes what he has done to Kripa, albeit unknowingly. There is a moment of silence, as Angad looks crestfallen and dazed and walks out of the door, Kripa turns back and tells him to take the pictures along with him as she has no need of them anymore. Angad just walks off, still shaken up completely. Kripa is now left alone in her room and she falls down on the floor shattered by the emotional upheaval that she has just undergone and cries her heart out, while Angad's pictures are strewn all around her!
THE BOSE HOUSE (PRITHVI AND MISHTI'S HOME)
Prithvi and Mishti are sitting together and Mishti is constantly noticing Prithvi who is completely lost in his thoughts. Suddently Mishti gets a mischievous gleam in her eyes and very causally asks Prithvi that she is thinking of inviting Kripa over for the party that they are having tonight. As if woken up from a slumber, Prithvi immediately responds by saying that it's a brilliant idea (it was so cute, I felt like kissing Prithvi on his cheeks, he is so lovable!). Mishti starts laughing and pulls Prithvi's legs and teases him mercilessly about Kripa, Prithvi though embarrassed tells Mishti to shut up and says that there is no such thing about Kripa. Mishti tells him that she will invite Kripa over to their house, after all she has to get her brother married. Prithvi goes all red and just ignores Mishti's playful jibes! Damini Bose comes over and asks them why are they arguing, Mishti very jovially tells her mother that they have to get Prithvi married soon, as every girl is after his life, Prithvi being one of the most eligible bachelors in town and also the only scion of the biggest event management company in India. Damini smiles affectionately and tells Mishti that they will surely get him married but only after Mishti gets married. The Mother and kids have a great family moment and we come to know that unlike the Khanna's the Bose are a very close knit and loving family bound to each other closely!
THE KHANNA HOUSE
Angad is sitting alone in his room, highly disturbed and emotionally strung, Mannan enters and asks him what is wrong with him these days, why is so touchy and lost. Angad does not answer, Mannan tells him that since the day you have come in touch with Kripa Sharma, you seem to be a different person. As soon as her name is announced, Angad gets livid and tells Mannan that why the hell would she affect him in any manner and that he hates her more than anything else. Mannan looks at Angad and tells him that there is a very thin line between love and hatred and at time people get confused over the same and do not realize that they are actually in love and think of it as hatred. Angad gets a are you crazy man type of a look and reacts in a volatile manner and tells Mannan that he doesn't care one damn about Kripa and that he just wants to even out with her once and take revenge for her slap and then the chapter of Kripa Sharma will be over once and for all. Mannan gets a strange look in his eyes as if he has understood what is bothering Angad so much and looks worried for him.
Just then Naina comes in and tells Angad to get ready to go for a party at Damini Bose's house tonight and that it is very important for him to attend it. Angad has a, no I don't want to, kind of bored look and tries to talk himself out of it, but Naina gives a frigid look at Angad and tells him that he knows there is no use arguing with her and that he should be ready on time. Angad gives up and does not say anything, while Naina tells Mannan that its her responsibility to see that Angad attends tonight's party.
Naina and Dilip are getting ready for the party when Dilip asks Naina what is the party about, Naina tells him that their son is going to meet their future wife today. Dilip is surprised and asks her when did she select a girl for Kartik, Naina tells him that she was talking about Mishti and Angad's marriage. Dilip tells her that isn't Kartik elder to Angad and that he should be the one to get married first, Naina very coldly answers that while Kartik might be the elder one, Angad is the more important one. Kartik meanwhile is listening to the whole conversation and his face shows no emotions, just a deep resentment in his eyes. Naina then thinks to herself that she has to somehow get Angad and Mishti married, then Angad can afford to be as careless about his career as much he wants to be, because Damini so rich, that Angad will not have to do one single thing for the rest of his life.
THE BOSE HOUSE PARTY
A grand party is hosted by Damini and the Khanna's are enjoying themselves except Angad who looks sulky and lost, with Mannan standing besides him. Prithvi's eyes are constantly looking at the door, and an angelic smile spreads over his face as he sees Kripa entering the Party along with Harshini. As Kripa (looking very pretty in a pink suit) looks around for Mishti, Prithvi walks to her and greets her cheerfully. Prithvi then tells Kripa that he wants to introduce her to his Mother, Damini Bose, Harshini immediately recognizes her name and very excitedly tells Prithvi that she had no idea he was the son of Damini Bose, the big boss of India's biggest event management company and that he is so down to earth and unassuming. Prithvi looks embarrassed as Kripa looks at him with respect and affection and tell him that she is very pleased to know that there are people still left in the world who do not let their power and position influence their thinking and stay grounded to life. (Amazing Prithvi dialogue!) Prithvi smiles at Kripa and tells him that all this money and business belongs to his Mother and that probably the day he is able to make something of his life, he might become a snob too and misuse his position. Kripa looks at Prithvi with great affection and says that such a day will never come and that Prithvi will never change his nature and remain as nice as he is always.
Meanwhile Angad notices Kripa and gets all the more upset, Mannan tells him to keep his cool and not do anything untoward or react to her in front of everyone. Angad who looks very disturbed turns his face from Kripa's and tries to control himself.
Meanwhile Prithvi introduces Kripa and Harshini to Damini who is very pleased to see them and is very warm and cordial toward both of them. Mishti joins her mother and then teases Prithvi with Kripa, who goes all embarrassed and red while Kripa is clueless! Then in a lovely scene, the music begins to play, and Prithvi asks Kripa, May I? Kripa is very reluctant and tries to avoid, but Harshini pushes her towards Prithvi and both of them join the dance floor for a dance.
Meanwhile the Khanna's are chatting up with Damini and Mishti, while Angad's eyes do not seem to leave Prithvi and Kripa at all and he has a strange mix of emotions in his eyes, and a clear hint of jealousy shows in it. Then as if in an impulse, he asks Mishti to join him for a dance, till then he was not even looking at her! Mishti and Angad join the dance floor and Kripa's eyes fall on Angad and her face goes sad. Both the lovely couples continue to dance, Angad keeps staring at Kripa, while Kripa stares back at him, Prithvi keeps looking at Kripa love-struck, while Mishti is cool! Meanwhile (I might be wrong her, do correct me, if so!) Kartik is looking at Mishti! The scene ends on Kripa's sad and heartbroken face and Angad's anguished and confused one staring at each other while dancing with others!
Amazing episode, superb in terms of dialogues and content! Kripa rocked today like no-one else, she really showed her mettle, not just as a formidable character but also as an actress. The way she sears her heart open in front of Angad was just heart-breakingly beautiful, it was one of the best emotional scenes I have viewed in recent memory! The dialogues were beautiful, the way Kripa describes her love for Angad could melt a rock! Angad looked amazing as usual, but today was Kripa's day, as the slap episode was only Angad's! Prithvi's character is so different from the usual third love angle ones, his character has so much innate dignity and maturity, that its impossible not to feel for him. But somehow the person who affects your heart most is Angad, it was really painful to see him cry….brought out his vulnerability so wonderfully! And Kartik, I think he holds a candle for Mishti! So Mannan is the first one to see what is happening to Angad, and realizes that his buddy is falling in love! Loved the dance scene too! The way Angad looks at Kripa and the way she looks back at him and the way Prithvi looks at Kripa was so heart-rendering, so romantic and so touching! Love seems to be in the air, it does!
Rocking episode, all the best scenes seem to be happening in the Outhouse, it seems the place to be!!!

April 25th Update: Angad and Prithvi are enemies in the open.....already!
Good Episode, but kind of ''thanda'' after the fireworks that exploded last week! But after today's episode, I have come to the observation that while Iqbal Khan (Angad) reeks of sex appeal and has an awesome, overpowering screen presence, and is definitely a very talented and natural born actor, while Amit Tandon (Prithvi) is good-looking in the cute way and is quite a decent actor, he is no match to the sheer magnetism of Iqbal! But at the same time, I think that Prithvi as a character is evolving to be superior than Angad as a character, in the same way that Mr. Bajaj became everyone's darling, than the bozo Anurag in KZK! I think tomorrow's episode is going to be really cute, with Angad and Kripa both bumping into each other in a Bathroom!!!
Coming to the update now, read on folks!
BOSE PARTY SCENE
The Party is going on in full swing, and Kripa cannot lift her eyes of Angad, who keeps giving her strange looks, at times possessive, at times indifferent, at times intrigued, at times confused and at times mesemerized. While Kripa is so clearly still in love with Angad, she keeps turning her head and glancing at Angad, while dancing with Prithvi, who is bessoteddly looking at only Kripa and no one else. Mishti meanwhile shows no such special inclination towards Angad and just seems to enjoy the Party. As the music slows, Mishti very mischievously tells Angad if he can smell something burning, Angad who's concentration is obviously not on the dance, is taken unawares and he is like, ''Duh?'' Mishti tells him that every girl present in the party is probably dying of jealousy and might be cursing Mishti, that she is dancing with the dashing and handsome superstar Angad. Angad smiles casually and in a flirtish manner tells Mishti that there is one girl present in the party who does not think that Angad is handsome, Mishti is surprised and asks him who is it, for which Angad smiles and tells her that it is you. Mishti laughs on this and they enjoy their dance. Then suddenly, Mishti keeps looking at Prithvi and Kripa (who has thankfully stopped staring at Angad and is looking at Prithvi for a change) who seem to be enjoying their dance, and comments to Angad on them. Angad's cool expression changes and he gets the sulky look on his face while staring at Kripa. Mishti tells him that she suspects Prithvi to have fallen for Kripa, even though Prithvi hasn't admitted anything to her. Angad's face falls even further, as Mishti asks him that he obviously must be knowing Kripa, she is being launched with him, Angad keeps staring at Kripa and Prithvi and does not reply. As they keep dancing, Kripa and Angad bump into each other, and Prithvi notices how their expression gets frigid and feels something is definitely missing.
Damini Bose comes on stage and declares that she has to make a special announcement and she wants her children, Mishti and Prithvi to come on stage for that. The couples stop dancing and while Prithvi goes to the stage, in a rather dramatic manner, Mishti lets go off herself from Angad and turns to hold Kripa's hand and to the shock and surprise of both Angad and Kripa, gives Kripa's hand in Angad's and tells him to take care of her, while Prithvi is away. Angad is stunned and keeps looking at Kripa, who is equally stunned, and the Camera focuses on Angad holding Kripa's hands and both of them keep looking at each other, dazzled and confused. Tania enters and looks at Angad with a lovelorn expression on her face, and gives an envious look at Kripa, who is completely unaware of anything around, meanwhile Anita comes near Tania and tells her that if she does not let Angad know of her feelings for him today, then she will lose him forever. As Tania goes near Angad, he lets go of Kripa's hand and both of them go in the opposite directions. Tania goes to Angad, who is at the Bar with Mannan and tells him that she wants to speak to him.
While both Kripa and Angad are away, Damini announces that from now onwards, her event management company will be taken over by Prithvi and Mishti and that Angad Khanna's next world tour will be handled by both of them. Everyone cheers for the Bose Siblings and Naina is seen to be particularly happy! Mishti and Prithvi hug Damini affectionately and we yet again get to see how happy the Bose Family is as opposed to the Khanna's.
ANGAD AND TANIA
Angad looks cool enough and tells her that ok, they both go to a secluded corner where Tania asks him why does he keep avoiding her these days. Angad looks very cool and relaxed and tells her kindly that he thinks of her as a good friend and nothing else, but he is noticing that she is getting the wrong signals about their friendship, Tania starts crying and tells him that what they shared was more than just a casual friendship and that she has deep feelings for him. Angad tells her that even when they did share a physical relationship, he had always made it clear to her that in spite of that, he will still consider her as a friend and nothing else. Angad tells Tania that when he himself does not believe in love, how can he think of sharing his life with her. Tania breaks down completely, while Angad looks cool and unrepentant, but at the same time, he is not completely insensitive towards Tania, but is very clear on his stand. Angad tells her that she has to get over this stupidity and just treat him as her friend and nothing else, and that he cannot offer anything more than that to her. Angad walks away, while Kripa, who has overseen the entire conversation is shown to be shell-shocked and her eyes well up with tears (Who on earth told her to follow Angad like Mary's Little Lamb everywhere?)
NAINA AND TANIA
Naina, who has also overseen the entire episode (Another Peeping Tom!) is seen to look victorious at Angad's response to Tania and when he has vanished, she goes to Tania and insults her in the most vile manner possible and tells her that if Angad every loves anyone, it will someone of his own status and if he ever marries someone, it will again be someone of his own status. Naina says that just because Angad spent a few nights with some girls does not mean he will end up spending his entire life with them, he is a star, for him such girls and just like tissue paper, use and throw. Naina tells Tania that how dare she even dream of Angad in this way, and that she is no longer needed in the show. Naina walks away, while a shattered Tania is shown to run off the party weeping, and Kripa, who has not heard Naina's conversation with Tania follows Tania outside.
KRIPA AND TANIA
Kripa and Tania meet outside, where Tania tells her that everyone is allowed to love the Angad the Star, but if someone dares to love the person in him, this is what becomes of her. As a even more heart-broken Kripa listens, Tania tells her that Angad is a heartless person, who values no relations, no emotions and no feelings and for him everything is inferior to his self. Tania tells him that today Angad is probably feeling benevolent towards Kripa, but tomorrow when he gets bored of her, he will dump her like a waste paper and walk on to another girl, shattering Kripa's life into pieces the way he has broken Tania's heart. Tania tells Kripa that if she has any amount of sense in her and if she cares a little bit of herself, then she should never make the mistake of falling in love with Angad, because nothing except heartache will come out of that. As Tania leaves Kripa, she is staggered and emotionally wrangled and stands there like a statue.
Prithvi comes from behind and asks her what is wrong with her, Kripa says that she is not feeling too well and that she would like to go home. Prithvi (love this chap!) tells her that he will get Harshini and drop them both, Kripa says that let her enjoy the party, Mishti will drop her, but she wants to leave now.
PRITHVI AND KRIPA
Prithvi offers to take her home and both of them drive down. While driving, Kripa is lost and sad, and Prithvi asks her softly what is up with her and Angad. Kripa is taken aback and avoids the question, Prithvi tells her that its ok if she does not want to talk about her relation with Angad, he won't pry into their personal matter (isn't he a doll?) Kripa smiles and says that nothing like that, its just that she ended up signing a contract with Angad in a fit of fury and now she has to complete it, after that she will leave for Nainital. Prithvi is surprised and asks her why does she want to leave so soon, for which Kripa says that there is too much hypocrisy and meanness in Mumbai and that people are always the opposite of what they seem, and that she thinks, she will never be able to fit in with such a culture. Prithvi tells her that while all this is true, what is also true is that Mumbai is the only place where even the farthest dreams come true and that Kripa should not be bogged down because of one or two people. Kripa tells him that she is not bogged down and the reason for her staying back is just one person, for whom she is willing to give Mumbai another chance. Prithvi's face lights up (loved him for this) and he asks her very hopefully who that special person is. Kripa very innocently replies that its Dadi (Devyani Khanna) and when she asked Kripa to stay put, she could not let her down. Prithvi immediately realizes what he was thinking and what Kripa said, and kind of looks a little let-down but again cheers up and builds Kripa's morale. Prithvi thinks to himself that he is amazed that such a beautiful and delicate girl can be so strong and willful.
ANGAD AND MISTHI
Meanwhile, Angad is shown to drive back home, when Mishti is standing waiting for her Car. Angad pulls his Car back and asks her what is she doing here, for which Mishti replies to him coquettishly that she is waiting for a decent boy to offer her a lift home, because her Car has gone to drop Harshini home and has still not come back. Angad (God, I loved the way he said this line, he made this simple line sound so sexy!) smiles causally and tells her that though he is not decent, he is a boy and he can offer her a lift home if she is willing. Mishti (who is obviously smitten by him like most girls) happily jumps into his Car and both of them enjoy the ride back. (I liked the way Angad is pally with her, in a very casual and laid back manner) where both of them playfully flirt with each other, Mishti asks him to put on some Music, and when he begins to play one of his songs, she tells him that she did not know that she had to put up with his song, to get a lift in his Car. Angad laughs and tells that its ok, he will switch on the radio if she likes, but Mishti tells him, its ok, she will listen to his song, there is not much choice. Both of them playfully banter with each other, obviously enjoying their mutual company! Angad pulls the Car infront of the Bose House and gets down to open Mishti's door (Not just devilishly handsome, but so courteous, no wonder girls are all flip-flop over him) and bids good-bye to her. Misthi who looks smitten with him, walks slowly to gate, hoping that Angad will kiss her or atleast say something romantic, but he just calls her name, and as she turns back hopefully, he says that he is sorry to have forced her to listen to his songs. As Misthi laughs and looks at Angad wistfully, he drives away.
ANGAD AND PRITHVI
As Prithvi drops Kripa to the door, he tells her that he is really glad that she came to the Party tonight, for which Kripa smiles affectionately and thanks him for making the evening special for her. Both of them shake hands, and while Prithvi keeps holding her hand, Angad comes from behind and looks at both Kripa and Prithvi from distance and thinks to himself, ''Accha toh baat yahan tak pahunch gayi hai.'' Angad is clearly jealous and as Kripa laughs on something that Prithvi has just said, clutches his fists in anger and gives a dirty stare at Prithvi. Kripa very hesitatingly offers to make Coffee for Prithvi and would he like to come in, but Prithvi being the gentleman he is, refuses and bids her good-bye and while going, Kripa turns and tells him that he is a very nice human being. Prithvi blushes like crazy and walks out, while Kripa goes inside and closes the door. Angad is standing in front of Prithvi throwing daggers at him, while Prithvi also doesn't look too pleased to see him. Angad very sarcastically tells him that while he was busy offering his services to strangers, his sister was stranded in the party and that he had dropped her home. Prithvi very coolly replies back that he is thankful to Angad for the same but Mishti has a Car and she could have well managed to reach home herself, even if Angad had not offered her a lift, but Kripa did not have a Car and hence he dropped her home. Angad, who looks clearly hostile now, tells Prithvi, in a voice reeking of jealousy, that while Kripa might not have a Car with her, she sure found a chauffeur for her. Prithvi now looks angry, but controls his temper and tells Angad brusquely that Kripa is a very nice and decent girl, for which Angad has a, oh sure, aren't they all? look, and Prithvi continues that even though Angad and he are not friends (its pretty clear that they will never be friends, now that Angad knows about Prithvi's feelings for Kripa and his own growing attachment to her) he knows Angad from childhood and that is why he is telling Angad to just let Kripa be alone and not bother her. (God, I felt like kissing Prithvi for this, he is such an amazing guy!) Angad is like, oh yeah, you are threatening me, and just gives a very cold look at Prithvi, who is completely unpetrubed and gives the same glare back to Angad and walks off, leaving Angad fuming and mad with anger and resentment!
Definitely a good episode, but as I said before, nothing in comparison to what was aired last week! Prithvi is good, and I mean good! Thanks God, he is not one of those typical, support system type characters who keep wallowing for their lady love and do nothing about it, Prithvi is strong and positive and evokes great respect and admiration as a character! Amit is surely doing a lovely job of it, his expression and dialogue delivery is improving very fast! But there is just no two ways about the fact that Angad truly rules when it comes to sheer star power. Its impossible to concentrate anywhere but on Angad, when he is onscreen, he devours everything around him! Iqbal is fantastic with his dialogues, his voice modulations, his expressions and of course, the way he reflects Angad's attitude on screen is just beyond any description! Kripa is good, but fades in front of Angad and now Prithvi, infact she seems better as an actress when paired with Prithvi, but loses sheen when Angad is around! The story seems to be moving well, Mishti might not be in love with Angad, but is definitely smitten by him, and complications are bound to arise later on, in this respect, if Angad gives her some wrong signals about his feelings! And, episode by episode, I am of the opinion, that Angad's character is getting fatally attracted to Kripa's, else there was no reason for Angad to feel so insanely jealous at seeing Prithvi and Kripa together! Loved Angad's sarcasm laced dialogues in this scene, but so did I love, Prithvi's cool retort to him! Can't get enough of both these chaps, Kripa sure is a lucky dame!

April 26th Update: Angad and Kripa share a really funny and cute moment in the Bathroom and in the Car!
I think today's episode rates 10 / 10 on the cuteness factor! I simply loved Angad and Kripa's chemistry in today's episode and Angad was like….WOW! Words fail at times to describe how damn cute and cuddly Angad looked today and he acted superbly! The episode did not contribute much for the story to move forward, but we did see a lot of A-K moments today, which gave us a glimpse of how cute they are going to look when squabbling with each other! And we also got to see Angad's sweet, vulnerable, childish side, I loved his scene with Dadi, but the best scene of the day, and probably one of the best shown till date was the one in which Angad and Kripa drive back home! I was laughing like anything, it was hilarious!
KHANNA HOUSE – NAINA, DILIP, ANGAD AND KARTIK
Naina is telling Angad that she has thrown out Tania from the group, Angad is surprised but not much, and asks her why. Naina tells him that she was getting too attached to Angad and that she did not want any last minute scandals. Angad gets a, oops, she knows about it, look and makes a cute face. Naina tells him that they have to get a replacement very soon and that she is going to get the best available professional singer for the concert. Angad is like, no way mom, I won't sing with a professional singer, I want to perform with someone new. Naina tells him that no one in World can ever over-shadow Angad Khanna and even if she does get the best talent from the industry, Angad will shine in front of her also. Just then Kartik comes and tells her that some legal hassle has come up in Delhi and that Dilip and she will have to fly down personally and sort out the matter. Naina is disturbed and tells Kartik and Dilip (who joins later on, I think) that she has never missed any concert of Angad's and this is a big one, how will things get managed. Angad assures her that everything will run smoothly and that Kartik and he will manage things on their own. Naina is not too happy but realizes she doesn't have much choice, and then the three of them leave for Office.
KHANNA HOUSE – ANGAD AND DADI
Angad is seen to potter around the house, when Dadi comes and Angad reacts happily like a child and gives her a warm, bear hug. Dadi smiles affectionately and asks him, ''Duniya ka sabse accha baccha kaisa hai?'' Angad and Dadi are shown to share a great rapport and Dadi seems to love him like anything. Angad seems to be a little lost and Dadi asks him what is bothering her darling baby, for which Angad asks her if she too thinks that he is too insensitive as a person. Dadi smiles knowingly and tells him, oh so that is what is eating you up today. Dadi says that Angad is like the Race Horse which has been trained rigourously to just look ahead and concentrate on the race and win it by hook or crook. If the race Horse ever makes the mistake of looking on his sides, he will probably get behind in the race and lose it. Angad smiles at Dadi and asks her, is it wrong to be ambitious. Dadi smiles back sweetly and as Angad places his head in her lap (I was like awwww in this!) she says that it is definitely not wrong to be ambitious but it is wrong to be inhuman. Angad is taken aback and asks Dadi that she too thinks that he is inhuman. Dadi says that she knows that Angad is a sensitive and loving person, but he has buried that facet of his personality under layers of outwardly harshness and ruthless ambition and he does not let his inner goodness come in the way of his achievements. Angad gets a little introspective and tells her that if ever he did make the mistake of falling in love with someone, then it would probably interfere with the career and his future plans and he would never want it that way, he says that he is sure, he wants to put everything in the backburner for his ambition and future and that he is willing to make any amount of sacrifices. Then both Dadi and Angad get into a very jovial, leg-pulling mode and Dadi keeps pulling Angad's leg and he keeps giving smart retorts back. Angad is like, what is this Dadi, you keep calling me a Horse, then you say I am inhuman, this is not fair, I am your favourite Bachha, how can you call me names? Dadi goes like, awww, my baby and then Dadi tells him how would he like to have his favourite Chocolate Cake baked specially by Dadi in the evening. Angad is like, wow, yum, yum, ofcourse, I would eat the whole thing up. Dadi tells him that he can drop by at her home after his evening jog. Angad mocks and tells her that, ''Chocolate Cake after evening jog?'' Dadi tells him to shut-up and jog for one hour extra! Angad hugs her and tells her that he will surely drop in by at her home in the evening.
DEVYANI KHANNA'S (DADI) HOUSE – HILARIOUS / ROMANTIC SCENE B/W ANGAD & KRIPA
Dadi is shown to be frantically preparing the Chocolate Cake for her favourite person in the kitchen with her maid helping out. Dadi tells her that she has not even started baking the Cake and Angad will come by any moment and ask for it, what will she say. (Dadi seems to be besotted with her grandson, like all other women!) Dadi looks pretty unhappy with the way the Batter is turning out and she asks the help to get some additional flour for the same. As the Maid goes to fetch flour, Kripa comes in and hugs Dadi affectionately from behind and Dadi is elated to see her. Kripa is curious as to what is going on, while Dadi tells her to go and see where the maid is, she had gone to fetch some flour for the Cake. As Kripa goes to see her, the maid comes in and bumps into Kripa, spilling the entire contents on to her Kameez! Kripa is like, oh no, while Dadi starts laughing and tells her to go to her room and change. Kripa very cutely tells her that she doesn't have another set of clothes, Dadi tells her to put on her track-suit. Kripa goes to Dadi's bedroom, gets a pair of track suits and goes to the washroom to take a shower. Just then our stud enters prancing happily and looking va, va, vroom in a pair of sleeveless T and track-pants, sweating from this evening jog! He goes straight to the kitchen and very cutely asks the maid where is his Dadi and where is his Cake, the maid, who seems to be equally besotted with Angad Baba tells him that Dadi has gone out for 5 minutes and he can wait for her in the living room. Angad is like, ok, whatever and goes straight to Dadi's bedroom. He takes off his shirt and then stands infront of the mirror and admires his muscles and all and seems generally very happy with himself. As he keeps admiring himself in front of the mirror, and does something with the towel like Superman, Kripa dressed in a bath-robe, very causally comes into the room from the Washroom and both of them are facing their backs. Suddenly Angad begins to whistle a tune, and Kripa is stunned and slowly turns to look around, at the same time, Angad who is completely unaware of anything, is still admiring himself and he also turns around and both of them shout at the same time, ''TUM?'' Angad is stunned and Kripa looks ready to faint, Angad is highly embarrassed and wraps the towel around his bare chest and Kripa is mortified and quickly puts a towel over herself and asks him, the words barely tumbling out of her mouth, what is he doing her, Angad who is still shocked, asks her what is she doing out here. Both of them keep looking at each other for some time, with the Camera panning on Angad and Kripa's eyes and while Kripa lowers her eyes, Angad keeps looking at her, mesmerized and hypnotized for a moment. Kripa just shakes her head and rushes inside the wash-room, while Angad is still not belieiving what just happened, then the cutest thing happens, Kripa very slowly opens the Washroom door slightly and as Angad turns to look at her, she puts her hand inside and says in a very slow, soft voice, ''Aap please mera track-suit mujhe denge, who andar hi reh gaya.'' Angad kind of makes a rotten face and gets an irritated look in his eyes and without saying anything, hands over the track-suit a much relieved Kripa!
But just then Dadi comes in and both Angad and Kripa are self-conscious and thoroughly embarrassed, Dadi keeps looking at both of them and smiles indulgently and tells them that its ok, no need for explanations, she can well imagine what would have happened. Angad is like, thank God, he makes a cute, relieved expression and goes out with Dadi, but not without giving a snort to Kripa, who looks ready to fall down any moment. The next scene shows Kripa looking really funny in the over-sized track-suit, looking very discomfited and coming to the living room, where Angad and Dadi are sitting. Angad throws her his typical intimidating look, but it was kind of softer than before and since he too is still embarrassed over what happened, does not say anything and looks her and there. Kripa suddenly tells Dadi that it has got really late and that she has to leave for home, Dadi tells her nothing doing, first she has have a piece of the Cake, it is Angad's favorite. Kripa makes a funny face and says that she doesn't like Chocolate Cake, while Angad gives her antagonistic look. Dadi very sweetly says that she has to taste it since she herself baked it, Kripa is at a loss and sits down resignedly, Angad then gets up to go, Dadi scolds him maternally and tells him that both of them have to finish the Cake. The poor souls eat up the entire thing, sulking and not looking at each other at all. Dadi then tells Angad that it is very late at night and since he is going home, he can drop Kripa. Angad is like, yuck, whatever, and Kripa is like, oh no, home with this Monkey? Kripa tries to get out of the situation but Dadi refuses to listen to her, and Angad who has the cutest, sulky expression on his face tells Kripa rather harshly that he will drop her home and that he waiting for her in the Car. Kripa just keeps looking sullen and in a huff and does not reply, while Dadi asks Angad if he has forgotten anything. Angad is like, oops, and he goes and gives a warm hug to Dadi and kisses her on her cheeks and scoots off. While Kripa too hugs Dadi and is about to leave, Dadi tells her that she should not judge Angad so soon and so harshly, people are always not what them seem to be. Kripa gets a sad expression on her face and tells Dadi that its true what she has said, people are not what they always seem to be. Dadi understands Kripa's meaning, and tells her that this is not what she meant, and that as Angad's grandmother, she knows him inside and out and tells Kripa to be less judgemenal towards Angad and she will realize what she has just said. Kripa appears confused and just bids good-bye and leaves.
HILARIOUS SCENE TILL DATE – INCREDIBLE ANGAD AND CUTE KRIPA
Angad and Kripa are shown to be in the Car, sulking and brooding and generally in a resentful and morose mood. While Angad is concentrating on is driving, Kripa is looking out, and at times looking at Angad covertly! Angad gives a sly look at Kripa and then gets a very devilish expression on his face and suddenly increases the speed of his Car and as Kripa looks on scared and shocked, he begins driving very, very fast. Kripa is petrified and asks him what is wrong with him and why is he driving the Car so fast. Angad gives her a grouchy look and tells her that this is the way he always drives and if she has a problem with his driving, then she can just get off here and now. Angad pulls his Car to a stop at a deserted place, Kripa just gives one fuming look at Angad, who is obviously enjoying the drive now, and gets off the Car in a huff. Angad doesn't even bother to look back and Kripa and just drives off leaving the poor thing stranded in the middle of nowhere. As Kripa, looking very cute and lost in the over-sized trackpants and slippers walks down, dejected, tired and slightly scared, a roadside waif begins to follow her. The guy is middle-aged and looks like a junky or something, at first Kripa does not notice, then she is very anxious and begins to walk very fast, the junky keeps following her and he too speeds up. Kripa is now terrified and starts running, just then the swanky Red Car pulls back and Kripa's fearful, timorous expression changes into one of reprieve and she breaks into a tearful smile as she watches Angad walking out of the Car looking intense and forceful and walks toward the Urchin, who is now obviously scared. As Kripa looks at Angad, who seems as if he will he will just kill the guy, in the most hilarious and funny manner, Angad's expression changes into one of extreme, false sweetness and he puts his hand over the Urchin's shoulders and tells him rather kindly, that he is an old guy, why is he wandering about like this alone in the middle of the night and that he should get into his Car, he will drop him wherever he wants to go. (I must have laughed for atleast 5 minutes continuously in this, the way Angad's expression changes was so good, so cute and so funny!) As a stunned and appalled Kripa looks on, her eyes wide open with surprise, Angad throws her a, ''I won this round baby'' type of cheeky look and very coolly drives off with the guy. Kripa is still shocked and then realizes how Angad has made a total cartoon of her and stomps her feet in frustration. As Kripa walks down dejected and irritated, her face lights up when she sees Angad's Car parked down and he lying on the Bonnet very coolly, as if nothing has happened. Kripa is very happy at seeing him, but at the same time angry, she just gives one cold stare at Angad, who is completely unperturbed and sits in the Car. Angad hops inside the Car and gives her a, ''you loser'' type of a competitive look and very victoriously drives off as Kripa is majorly frustrated and annoyed!
KHANNA HOUSE – THE KHANNA FAMILY TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME
As the Car pulls down at the Khanna House, Naina, Dilip and Kartik are seen to be in another Car, leaving for the Airport. Naina tells an indifferent Dilip and an irritated Kartik, that just because she is away, she doesn't want anything going wrong with Angad's concert and that she will never tolerate if anything messes up. She says that she cannot bear to take one single chance with Angad's career, Kartik looks quite upset but tells Naina to cool down and that he will take care of the Concert behind her back. Naina tells Kartik to find the best replacement for Tania, for which Kartik tells her that she should rethink about getting Kripa back, as she already knows the composition well and getting a new person at this stage won't be such a good idea. Naina tells him stubbornly that nothing doing, she can't stand Kripa being anywhere near Angad and that he will perform only with the best talent. Kartik gives up and just shuts up. Just then the three notice, Angad and Kripa in the Car, and Naina gets very disturbed and asks Dilip and Kartik, what is Kripa doing with Angad. Dilip is not bothered and says that they must have come back together from the rehearsals, so what, just let him be. Angad leaves Kripa sitting in the Car and goes towards this parents and brother and bids a very affectionate good-bye to Naina (who clearly loves him too, as opposed to what we were thinking earlier) who tells him to not be careless and practice well for the concert. Angad teases his mom and tells her that if she worries so much for him, she will get wrinkles on her beautiful face, Naina's face lights up with affection for Angad and she tells him to be serious sometimes. Kartik and Dilip both break into a laughter and we see a rare glimpse of the Happy Khanna Family. Kripa is looking at them from distance and she has a strange look on her face. Angad bids good-bye to his Parents and walks off.
TANIA AND KRIPA
Kripa goes to meet Tania at her place the next day and overhears a conversation between Tania and her Mom and gets to know that Tania is facing a huge financial crisis because she has been thrown out of Angad's group. Tania sees Kripa and is pretty rude to her, Kripa tries to talk to her, but Tania gets emotional and tells her that Mumbai has no place for losers and that no one has time to wipe off the tears of people who have failed to make it, and that Kripa should go and make her future, so that she won't be alone and waiting for someone to wipe her tears off. As a sad Kripa listens on, Tania tells her that she dreamed of an upper-middle class existence, and ended up in a financial and emotional mess like this, because of people like Angad, who will trample anyone and everyone, to secure their future. Tania breaks down and walks off, while Kripa is shown to be shaken up and thinks to herself, that ''No Dadi, I was not wrong in judging Angad, he is what he seems to be.''
Very cute episode, I loved the Car scene, especially the way Angad's expression changes from that of intense, anger to that of false sweetness, and the way he gives a victorious look at Kripa was priceless. Iqbal acted superbly, his comic timing is just bang-on and he looks all the more endearing when he has this innocent, sweet, boyish look on his face. Kripa looked like a 13 year old going for a Pyjama Party in the Track-suit, she looked about 10 years younger than Angad, but nevertheless these two share a wonderful and warm on-screen chemistry, even in the scenes, where there is no romance or intensity potrayed! Loved the interactions b/w Angad and Dadi, atleast one person in the Khanna House treats him like a baby and spoils him with love & affection instead of unwanted independence and wealth! Angad looked such a chweety pie in this and the way he puts his head on Dadi's lap was so heart-warming! So, Dadi is one person who understand and sees the human in Angad and adores him absolutely! I liked the fact that she calls him, ''Duniya ka sabse pyaara baccha'', that was so sweet! And after today's episode, I am of the view that Naina is not a bad Mother to Angad, she is just a highly misguided one, she is seeking to fulfill her ambition through Angad, but at the same time, is hyper about his career, the way most Modern Mothers today are…..its just that Naina has been dramatized to make her look like a Monster. I actually liked her interaction with Angad today, and the way she brushes him off like a typical mom, when he pulls her leg! There is definitely something special about Angad, he shares a great rapport with almost all the characters, and I am not just talking about Iqbal the Actor, I am also commenting on Angad, the Character! Overall an interesting episode and a very funny one too!

April 27th April: Kripa and Angad have another fight, and one with Prithvi is due tomorrow!
Very good episode, but if yesterday's was 10 /10 on the cuteness factor, today it was 10 / 10 on the Kripa – Angad confrontation factor!!! Angad looked as sexy and macho as ever and boy can he act or what! He looks incredible when he is angry and the whole screen lights up when he smiles! Kripa acted really well today, she does these dramatic scenes rather well, I have noticed. Prithvi is getting so good day by day, I loved his performance today, it was so understated and so natural, he seems to be born to play Prithvi to utmost perfection! Mishti looked very cute, but the surprise factor was Kartik, who is incredible in his acting, very natural and effortless. I think that way KYPH has a cornucopia of excellent talents!
MISHTI AND DAMINI – ADORABLE MOM /DAUGHTER MOMENT (Mummy Ki Pari Hoon Main…..)
The episode beings with Damini chiding Mishti to get ready soon to leave for the inauguration of the Fashion Show or Boutique, and Mishti tells her that she doesn't want to come to the Fashion Show, Damini teases her that Angad is coming, and Mishti is like, so? Mishti tells her that she has to go the Academy, her buddies are waiting for her, Damini asks her Kripa and Harshini. Mishti tells her only Harshini, because Kripa will be gone for the Chorus Practice. Damini is surprised and asks her wasn't Kripa supposed to be the lead with Angad, Mishti makes a bad face and tells that Naina Aunty was very unfair to her and put her in the Chorus Group without any explanation! Damini is very surprised and wonders why that could have happened. Damini once again very sweetly asks Mithti if she is sure she doesn't want to meet up with Angad, Mishti is like, Mom, Please cut this off and breaks out laughing with Damini!
KRIPA SINGING, AND ANGAD ENTHRALLED – (Parvaton Se Aaj Mein Takragaya, Tum Nein Di Aawaz, Lo, Mein Aagaya……..)
Angad, looking his burning hot and attractive self, is the Chief Guest at some Fashion do, with Damini in tow there and is happily cutting the ribbon and prancing about smiling and enjoying. Suddenly he hears a voice singing, Om Jagdish Hare, and he is rooted to his spot as he strains his ears to listen to the voice! Angad asks some lady standing nearby, if she knows where this voice is coming from, the lady tells him that there is a famous temple nearby, and someone must be singing a Bhajan there. Damini too listens to the voice and tells Angad that such an incredibly sweet and powerful voice, wonder who is this. Angad who is totally lost in the song, mutter something to Damini and says that he has found the voice he was looking for and whoever this person is, will sing along with him in his Concert. Angad still mesmerized by the voice rushes out following it, totally lost to the world, as he nears the temple, the voice becomes more prominent, Angad gets a smile on his face as he listens to the voice and sees a girl standing with a Aarti Ki Thali and singing. Angad keeps looking at her, but is not able to see her face, as it is covered with a dupppata, and follows her throughout the temple, when she is taking the Parikrama. Angad's expression was priceless when he sees that its Kripa, and keeps staring at her with a hostile, irritated look. The Panditji comes and gives some Prasad to Kripa nd tells her that it is for her and her husband and may God always keep them together and happy. Kripa is stunned, and Angad's face gets even more severe, as he gives one rotten look at the Pandit and then at Kripa and walks off in a huff. Damini Bose who has followed Angad and asks Angad who was singing, he makes an angry snort and tells that it was nobody and lets go. Damini is surprised and then notices Kripa leaving the temple, when she tries to call her name, but Angad stops her and tells Damini that let her go, Damini is completely taken aback and asks Angad, that it was Kripa who was singing, wasn't it? Angad gets a severe expression on his face and tells Damini, that Aunty, come what, I will never sing with ''that girl''. Damini is stunned and before she can ask Angad for an explanation, he walks away in anger.
PIG-HEADED ANGAD AND PRACTICAL KARTIK (Main Aisa Kyon Hoon, Main Aisa Hi Hoon………)
Angad, Kartik and Damini are in a meeting at her Office, where both Kartik and Damini are trying to reason it out with Angad that Kripa is the only one who can sing with Angad at this last moment, as she knows the composition and is definitely very talented and good. Angad, like a stubborn pig refuses to comply and says that come what, he will never sing with ''that girl'' and that he cannot stand her at all, leave aside performing with her on stage. Kartik is agreeing with Damini but tells her that even Naina is against this. Damini very calmly tells Angad that he is a Professional and as a true professional, his personal feelings for someone should not interfere with his singing, it should not matter to him with whom he is singing, what is more important is, what he is singing. Kartik agrees with Damini and tells Angad that aunty is correct, and that he has to be practical and agree to sing with Kripa, but will Kripa agree to sing with Angad now, as soon as Kartik says this, Angad's expression gets all the more outraged and he fumes thinking about Kripa. Angad is still stubborn and again says that he won't sing with ''that girl''. (Both Kartik and Angad keep referring to Kripa as ''that girl'' only Damini takes her name, these two boys are so manner less, I tell you!) Damini gives up and tells Angad that its finally his choice and if he doesn't want to sing with Kripa, then its ok, they will find someone else, but he should think about it once more. As Damini leaves, ruffling Angad's hair affectionately, Kartik tells Angad that they have to get on with the show, and once its over, to hell with Kripa. Kartik tells Angad that he will have a word with Kripa and convince her to sing, Angad gets an intense expression in his eyes and tells Kartik in a cold voice, that no, I will speak to her myself. Kartik is, ok whatever, just get the job done.
ARROGANT ANGAD AND STRONG-WILLED KRIPA – ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN! (Aa Dekhen Zara Kisme Kitna Hai Dam, Jam Ke Rakhna Kadam, Mere Saathiya!)
The Choreographer is waiting for Angad to come and is looking very worried and asks one of the Chorus Girls why is Angad still now come in. Kripa is shown in the background happily chatting with one of the Chorus girls and is completely unaware of anything. Just then Angad comes in and the choreographer breaks into a bright smile and tells him that only two days are left for the concert and they don't have a lead singer yet. Angad (looking like a million bucks in a black sandoz) gets a strange look in his eyes and gives a sideway glance at Kripa, who has not even noticed him, btw! And announces that they have a lead singer, Kripa, the choreographer is like, what? Kripa?, but looking at Angad's steely expression, refrains from saying anything and is like, ok whatever, get back to your positions. Kripa is so taken-aback that she just keeps staring at Angad who is not even looking at her and has already taken his position and he puts his right hand out and tells Kripa, ''Kripa, apni position par aa jao.'' (Some cheek this guy has, I tell you!) Kripa just keeps staring at Angad's back and then at his outstretched hands, Angad has the cockiest expression on his face, as if nothing has happened and that dancing with Kripa was the most natural thing in the World. Kripa comes towards him, gives him one hard look and literally screams at top of her voice by saying, ''Nahin, mein tumhare saat nahin gaaongi.'' And as a ''Oh, Oh'' Kartik looks and Angad is left completely humiliated and flustered, Kripa walks off in complete outrage and disgust. Everyone is left staring at Angad, who looks ready to eat Kripa, and follows her outside and tells her to wait. Kripa turns around and tells him that how dare he suggest that she should perform with him as his lead after all that he and his mother have done to Tania. Angad is slightly taken aback, as Kripa tells him that Angad and his mom might be one who can trample over other people's dreams and go marching forward, but Kripa is one who will prefer to step out of the way, incase her going forward is ruining someone's life. Kripa tells him that what was Tania's mistake, that she dared to love Angad, dared to love a superstar, so that was the price she had to pay, and Naina threw her out of her job leaving her penniless. Kripa tells Angad that she is not ruthless or heartless like Angad or his Mom, and that she will never step into Tania's shoes and hurt her any further. Kripa tells Angad that he is positively disgusting and she would rather quite the Academy than ever sing with a person like him. Angad looks so mad at Kripa, that it seems he will immediately wrangle her neck, he tells her very coldly that she cannot quit the show in this manner, she has signed a contract and she has to fulfill it at any cost. Kripa tells him to get lost and says that she cares two hoots for the Contract and that he cannot do anything about it, if she won't fulfill it. Kripa gives one furious look at Angad and says that she will never, ever sing with Angad, come what, he can just go to hell. Angad is left incensed with wrath and mad rage, as he cannot digest Kripa's major snub to him!
SLIMY KARTIK AND ''IN HOT SOUP'' KRIPA (I can never think of a song, with Kartik in it!!!)
Kartik comes to meet Kripa at the Outhouse, Kripa is surprised but calls him in politely, Kartik is very cool and tells her that she has signed a contract and that she will have to fulfill it anyway. Kripa says that she doesn't want to sing with Angad, Kartik tells her that she doesn't have a choice and if she doesn't report to the rehearsals tomorrow, he will send a legal notice not just to her but to her Parents also in Nainital and that she will have to cough up 50 lakhs if she won't fulfill the contract. Kartik tells her that Angad is a fool and that instead of dealing with the whole issue in a cold, business like manner, lost his temper on her and blew the whole issue like anything, but Kartik has the right method to regin in Kripa and that she better oblige to what is being told to her, else she and and her family is going to be in a big soup! Kripa is stunned and doesn't know how to react, while Prithvi who had come to meet Kripa, listens to the entire conversation from outside the room and is furious with the Khanna's but decides about something and walks away from there, unnoticed and quietly!
CUTE MISTI AND CUTER PRITHVI (Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka Sabka Kehna Hai, Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behna Hai….)
Mishti is shown to call up Kripa and tells her that they have been planning a dinner for so long and that Harshini, Prithvi, Kripa and herself have to go tonight for it. Kripa is in no mood and is worried sick after her conversation with Kartik and tries to wrangle herself out. Mishti refuses to listen to her and says that nothing doing, she has to come to so and so restarurant and that they will be waiting for her there. Prithvi has a cool expression on his face, as if he has planned something. (And he dresses up really well, he was looking very nice in a light blue linen shirt and off-white cargos, goes well with his overall personality)
PRITHVI ROCKS MY WORLD (AND ANGAD STOPS MY HEART!) (Yaaron Dosti Badi Hi Haseen Hai, Yeh Na Ho Toh Bolo Kya Yeh Zindagi Hai…)
My Prithvi, my sweet, my adorable, darling Prithvi. He rock like anything! Prithvi very coolly hands over the cheque of 50 lakh and is absolutely relaxed about it. Kartik is surprised and asks him why is he doing this, to which Prithvi replies that their event management company supplies the chorus girls for Angad's shows and that he is just letting go of one of them, by giving the compensation amount back to the Khanna's. Kartik is very surprised now, but does not react and tells Prithvi that its ok then, Kripa is free from the Contract. Prithvi very politely thanks Kartik and leaves the room. Once Prithvi has left, and Kartik is left wondering now whom will they arrange at such a short notice, Angad walks in very coolly and greets Kartik, hi brother, why do you look so worried. Kartik in his usual, deadpan manner tells Angad that Kripa has freed herself from the Contract, now what will they do about the show. Angad's face gets all frigid and terse and he asks Kartik if Kripa was here, Kartik says that no, Kripa wasn't there, but her friend came and gave this, he hands over the cheque to Angad, who is quite surprised at seeing it. Kartik tells Angad that he is very surprised at this and he had no idea that Kripa had such powerful friends who would go to such an extent for getting her out of this muddle. Angad is now dying out of curiosity and asks Kartik, who was it who gave the compensation on behalf of Kripa, Kartik says, Prithvi Bose. Angad's is mad with jealousy and his face wrinkles in anger and he is left with a cold fury, as he takes the cheque from Kartik and walks out, leaving Kartik wondering what his brother is upto now!
FURIOUS ANGAD AND LOST KRIPA – ULTIMATE RETORT BY ANGAD TO KRIPA'S SNUB TO HIM! (Aaj Na Chodoonga Tujhe Dam Dama Dam, Tune Kya Samjha Hai Mujhe, Dil Mein Hai Toofan Bhara…..)
Kripa is getting ready for the dinner and combing her hair, when someone knocks at the door and she goes to open it. Kripa opens the door and is staggered to see Angad, who is looking at her with a rotten expression comes in and tells her that he had thought that however arrogant and stupid Kripa was, she was atleast a self-respecting, independent person and not one to take favours from her so called friends. Kripa is taken aback and asks Angad (quite politely, btw) that what is he talking about. Angad (looking really good in a red shirt and denims!) very coldly and cruely tells her that is she was desperate to free herself from the contract, she could have very well spoken to him too, why did she have to go and beg in front of her friend and his mom for that. Kripa is still lost and tells him, that she has no idea what he is talking about. Angad snorts sarcastically and tells her to stop acting so innocent and he has seen through her game already. Kripa keeps asking him what is he talking about, what cheque, which friend, she has no clue. Angad tells her that Prithvi had come to Kartik and given a cheque of 50 lakh which will free Kripa from the contract, before Kripa can react to this statement, Angad who looks mad with cold rage, tells Kripa that he knows Prithvi and his Mom from a very, very long time and has immense respect for both of them, especially for Damini Bose. As Kripa listens stunned and reactionless, Angad turns and gives her a powerful, forceful look and throws the cheque on her by telling her that she can return the cheque to her friend and tell him that Angad himself frees Kripa from the Contract, not because she was able to give him the compensation for it, but because he has immense respect for Damini and since Kripa is close to her son, he has no intentions of causing any disharmony between all of them. As a dazed and shaken Kripa listens to all this, Angad throws her one putrid look and walks out of the room!
GENERAL COMMENTS BY SILLY CHILLY!
Good episode! I liked the way Angad fumes and frets when angry! People who lose their temper frequently, are generally very clear by heart! This chap is going to go places, no two ways about it! Kripa was very good today, her acting skills are improving quite well, and she does these emotional, outburst scenes rather well! Prithvi is one cool customer, and its impossible to tell that this is his first foray into acting, he is really natural in his performance! The Trio has a good balance and all of them seem to complement and offset each other, that way their characterization is excellent, we get to see three completely different individuals, woven by the thread of ambition, friendship, revenge, love and self-respect. If you notice, Angad, Kripa and Prithvi are very alike in many ways and completely opposite to each other in some, probably that is why we relate to all of them so well! Also I find Kartik very, very intriguing and interesting as a character, and this fellow acts so well! Amazing serial, I am really impressed by its pace and story line till now!
HIGHTLIGHTS FOR TOMORROW – KRIPA AND PRITHVI
Tomorrow's promo shows Kripa being really upset with Prithvi, who is his usual cool self and tells her that he did not help her out because he was pitying her, but rather because, he thought that what she was saying and doing is correct, and if she doesn't want to sing with Angad, no one on Earth can force her to do that, Prithvi tells her that he would have done this for any of his friends. Kripa looks confused, as usual!

April 28th Update: Kripa agrees to sing in the concert
by CHLLYFLAKES UPDATE(CHEERS)
If Angad looks any sexier than he does now, I would just fall off the bed tossing and turning, trying to catch some sleep, just dreaming of Angad!!! Man, where was he all this while??? Not just reeking of sheer magnetism, his acting is what adds the icing on the Cake…..pure dynamite! And his scenes with Kripa are just explosive, the way his face burns in anger, you feel that he will just jump on Kripa and wrangle her neck any moment!!! Poor Prithvi wanted to propose Kripa tonight, but Mishti darling poured cold water over it, quite unwittingly though! Dadi has sensed not just Kripa's anguish but Angad's deadly attraction towards Kripa….and she is upto something!
THE OUTHOUSE – KRIPA AND PRITHVI
Kripa is sitting alone in her bedroom, pondering over all that Angad just said and still not believing Prithvi's actions. The phone rings, its Harshini, who whispers conspiratorially on the phone and asks Kripa why isnt' she coming, a lost and irritated Kripa tells her that she is not feeling too well and that is why she decided to give the dinner a miss, and to apologize the others for the same. Prithvi, Mishti and Harshini are sitting together, and as Harshini tells them Kripa is not very well and hence won't be able to join, Prithvi immediately senses what could be wrong (not just sensitive, but smart too, I like this lad!) and excuses himself from the dinner. Harshini is disappointed, but Mishti understands and smiles to herself.
The door bell rings and Kripa is taken aback at seeing Prithvi standing there looking kind of guilty. Kripa is very upset, as Prithvi asks her if she is feeling better now. Kripa tells him that she had never expected this of Prithvi and for God Sake, he didn't have to show his position and wealth by baling out Kripa like this. Kripa tells him that it was her decision to sign the contract and she shared her problem with Prithvi, because she considered and trusted him as a friend and not because she expected him to come running in her aid (Lovely dialogues uttered by Kripa in this scene, wish I could put the exact words, can't recollect now!) Prithvi is calm and collected and tells her that his reason for helping out Kripa was not to shown his power and position, but because he believed that what Kripa did was correct and he knows that by not wanting to perform with Angad, she is trying to help out Tania and not harm Angad in anyway. Prithvi says that he admires Kripa's strength and sentiments, and that is the reason he decided to help her out. Kripa is still upset and tells Prithvi that it is not a question of her not fulfilling the terms & conditions of the contract, it is a question of commitment and loyalty to one's own decision and if she has the brains and guts to sign a contract, she can find her own way to either fulfill it or not. Prithvi tells Kripa that he really admires the strength and self-respect in her and will always stand by her, Kripa melts and apologizes to Prithvi and says that she knows Prithvi did not help her out to show his position but because he considers her as a friend.
THE OUTHOUSE – ANGAD AND KRIPA – SHOWDOWN NO. 3
The next scene shows Prithvi and Kripa walking towards the main gate, where she is seeing him off, both of them are laughing and talking very animatedly. Just then our dude's Car is shown parked outside the gate, and Angad is looking at both Kripa and Prithvi from the rear view of his mirror and gnashing his teeth in anger and seems to be in a foul mood. As Kripa laughs gaily over something that Prithvi has just said, Angad goes completely mad with anger and his eyes burn with jealousy. As Prithvi is shown going off in his Car, Angad steps out and goes towards Kripa who is completely put-off after seeing him and just makes a unpleasant face and walks off. Angad being Angad cannot resist passing an acidic comment on Kripa, follows her dutifully to the Outhouse and as Kripa (who has not noticed him following her) goes inside, Angad comes and stands near the door with his hand resting on one side and he is staring at Kripa, as if he will have for dinner tonight! Kripa notices him and is furious at seeing him, and asks him rather rudely, what is he doing here? Angad who was waiting for this, very acerbically comments that, oh, I didn't know that only your boyfriends are allowed in the Outhouse. Kripa is disgusted and shouts on him that Prithvi is not her boyfriend. Angad who is now in full glory gives one sharp look at Kripa and tells her that, all that nonsense she was sprouting about self-respect and all, and then she has her ''special friends'' coming over at odd times to meet her and help her out. Kripa is completely mad at Angad and just keeps staring at him in cold rage, waiting for him to finish. Angad then says some pretty nasty things to Kripa, he tells her that, she saw his picture somewhere, fell in love with his image and then when she came to Mumbai and discovered that Angad the person was not like Angad the Star, it broke her heart. How the hell is that his problem? (Hey, this is exactly what we were discussing a few days back!) Angad says that if he is being a hypocrite, that is because, his profession demands so, at least he does what he believes in his real life and if he says that he doesn't believe in love and relationships, it is because he doesn't! Atleast he is not a double minded charlatan like Kripa is, who talks about values and morals and then has her ''special friends'' dropping by at her place and going out of their way to help her. Angad is absolutely reeking of sheer jealousy, but he talks sense, in one way! Kripa first keeps listening then tells him to shut up and now listen to her. Kripa says that first and foremost Prithvi is not her boyfriend but her well-wisher and a good friend, but obviously, a person like Angad who does not believe in love and relationship, would never understand what friendship is. Kripa says that all that Angad just said had little bit of truth and a lot of envy. Kripa tells Angad that he is just plain jealous of Prithvi and that he cannot bear to see that someone is helping her out. (I felt that what Kripa said was equally correct!) Kripa tells him that she is not taking Prithvi's help and that she will sort out her problem herself, because she is not one who will give precedence to herself over her friends, unlike him. Kripa says something rather nasty to Angad (can't recollect exactly) and Angad totally loses his cool and utters, ''You Bloody….'' Kripa is stunned and keeps staring at him, while Dadi enters suddenly and is shocked and says, ''Angad? Mind your language, yeh kya bol rahe ho tum. Aur yeh ho kya raha he tum dono ke beech mein?'' Angad who suddenly realizes Dadi's presence is bewildered and gives one look at Kripa and walks out of the room! Dadi comes inside, looking dismayed and asks Kripa what was going on between both of you. Kripa who looks totally staggered mutter something and is not able to control her tears. Dadi looks very confused and tells Kripa, that till date, she has never heard Angad ever uttering a single profanity against anyone, and that she still cannot believe her ears over what Angad just said to Kripa. Dadi tells a weeping Kripa that she will speak to Angad and ask him to apologize to her.
ANGAD'S BEDROOM - ANGAD AND DADI
Angad is sitting in his rocking chair with a glass of chilled beer (to drown his woes over Ms. Sharma, I guess!) and has a frustrated and highly disturbed expression over his face. He hears Dadi's voice calling out for him, and he immediately gets up and tries to hide the glass (Awww, see he has so much respect for his elders, he won't even pretend to drink in front of them) Dadi comes in and very indulgently tells Angad that how much more is he going to drink, and that he should just stop for today. Angad looks very embarrassed and has no reply. Dadi then gets a very sad expression and tells Angad that though she knows that Angad is a little short on temper, she had never expected Angad to say such a thing to Kripa and what on earth provoked him into doing this. Angad looks like a school kid caught cheating and trying to give an explanation to the teacher! Angad makes a frustrated grunt and tells Dadi that he doesn't know why Kripa irks and irritates him to such an extent that he is not able to control himself and just loses his cool over her. Angad looks very fore lone and guilty and walks out of the room, while Dadi smiles to herself and says that she knows now, why Angad lost his cool with Kripa. Till date, no one had the guts to question or argue with Angad, and Kripa not just stood bravely infront of him, she actually showed the true picture of Angad to himself and that is why he could not digest the fact that someone could behave with him in such a manner.
PRESS CONFERENCE – ANGAD AND KRIPA
Angad, Kartik and Mannan are in a Press Conference talking to the Media about their forthcoming Concert. Angad utters the same stuff about love and feelings and says that only a person who can believe in love can sing from the heart and reach out to people. Then the Media persons begin to ask him about his new co-singer for the upcoming Concert, Kartik and Angad get an embarrassed look and try to avoid the question, but the Media is persistent. Just then Kripa walks in and though Angad is surprised, he very coolly tells the Media present, that his new co-singer has just arrived, why don't you guys speak to her directly. Kripa smiles confidently and arrives on the podium and sits right besides Angad who again has the same grumpy expression on his face but alternates it with a smile for the Tv! As Kripa keeps smiling and answering questions from the journalists, Angad very cutely, says in a sarcastic voice, while continuously pretending to smile, that, she finally came to her senses and decided to perform with him, Kripa who is no less than him, does the same thing and tells him in the same vein that she decided to perform with Angad because she did not want to take either Prithvi or Angad's favor for that matter and deal with her own problem herself. Angad just makes a funny face!
BOSE HOUSE – Prithvi and Damini
Prithiv is sitting on his couch and watching Kripa's press conference and has a completely love-struck expression on his face, Damini comes from behind and is surprised at Prithvi's strange expression and then looks at the Television Set and smiles to herself. Damini asks Prithvi very sweetly what is so lost in, Prithvi tells his mother that he wants to confess something to someone, Damini smiles and asks him if that someone is a girl. Prithvi says that yes, and also a very good friend of his and he is afraid that she might take what he says in a wrong sense and he doesn't want to lose a good friend. Damini tells him that he should not worry about what her reaction might be, he should just go and say what he wants to right away. Prithvi gets a wide smile on his face as Damini hugs Prithvi affectionately and pats his head!
THE COFFEE HOUSE – Angad, Prithvi, Kripa and Mishti
Mishti calls up Angad and invites him for a Cup of Coffee, and tells a surprised Angad that she wants to discuss his forthcoming World Tour. Angad is cool and tells her that he will be there on time. Meanwhile Prithvi calls up Kripa who is sitting with Harshini and asks her out for Coffee, Kripa is surprised and asks him if any special reasons, he says that nothing, he just wants to discuss about the Concert. Kripa is like ok, whatever you say, while Harshini tells Kripa that she has these butterflies in her tummy for Prithvi and can she ask him what he feels about her. Kripa is very happy and tells her that she will surely talk to Prithvi on this.
Angad and Mishti are chatting in a very jovial vein, and as girls nearby keep giving him wistful looks, he very cutely gives a flying kiss to one of them and makes a face at Mishti and tells her, I tell you these girls, it becomes rather tough to handle them all the time. Mishti is like, oh lay off, she laughs and tells him that she knows Angad is very fond of all this female attention and he is saying this only to impress her. Angad retorts very cutely that Mishti is already impressed with him, is there any need of him to further impress her. Mishti breaks out laughing and chides him playfully. Just then Prithvi and Kripa enter, and Mishti is elated at seeing them, and calls them towards herself. Angad is very upset and completely ignores both of them, its only when Prithvi says hi, he replies in a sullen way! (That way, Angad is such a baccha and Prithvi is so mature!) Kripa is highly discomfited at seeing Angad and doesn't say anything to him. Mishti forces Prithvi to join them, he makes a very cute, irritated face to her and says, whatever and sits down much to his disappointment! Kripa ends up sitting right next to Angad who keeps giving her strange side-way glances. There is a very uncomfortable silence round the table, as Prithvi goes off to get Coffee for Kripa and the others! Mishti then comments that how is the rehearsals coming along and how are both Angad and Kripa getting along. Angad just makes an even more sulkier face while Kripa says something sarcastic about the rehearsals. Mishti senses that there is some issue between both of them, but is not clear about it. Thankfully Prithvi joins them, and Kripa then says rather emotionally that she is really and truly grateful to both Prithvi and Mishti for their unconditional support to her and its only because of them and Dadi that she has been able to fulfill the contract, else she would have completely given up. Angad is still giving her funny stares! Kripa then very innocently says that she is really looking forward to going back to Naintial now once the concert is over, as soon as she says this both Angad and Prithvi look astonished and dismayed! While Angad has a curious look on his face, Prithvi looks highly disappointed and sad! Mishti looks startled too and asks Kripa why does she want to go back to Nainital so soon, Kripa gets a poignant look on her face and gives one side-way glance to Angad and says that she has no reasons left for her to stay back in Mumbai once the concert is over. Angad looks kind of guilty and Prithvi looks totally gloomy! Mishti smiles and gives one look at Prithvi and says that, she has a reason to stay back in Mumbai, only she has not noticed it till now. Angad senses what Mishti means, and looks highly displeased, while Prithvi is embarrassed out of his life and gives one shove to Mishti under the table!!! Mishti gives a cute wink at Prithvi who is just miserable about what Kripa just said, while Kripa tells Mishti that she has thought over it a lot many times, and that she will surely go back to Naintial once the Concert is over. The episode ends on Angad's mystified face and Prithvi's distressed one!
CHILLY ''SPECIAL TADKA'' COMMENTS – READ THEM AT YOUR OWN RISK!
I would say today's episode was a ho hum episode, so-so! Actually the fault lies with us, when we have seen something spectacular, we just get more and more greedy and lust for better things! But there was a spectacular showdown scene b/w Angad and Kripa, and both of them had some rather spiteful & ghastly things to tell each other! Angad rocks in his dialogue delivery and his expression are so natural, you feel that he is actually fuming with anger or for that matter is genuinely confused about something! This boy is really good and may his talent take him places! Kripa is…..ok! Actually she was good today, but she pales into insignificance in front of Angad, not her fault! And sorry to say this, but her expressions are pretty funny at times, it seems she puts too much effort into her acting and it shows! Prithvi is another natural actor, but his character is so, that most people would misunderstand it for lack of acting or being wooden, but I don't think so, he is very good with his role and does full justice to it! Mishti is like a spark of fire in a cold winter night, she is vibrant, confident and acts quite well! Harshini looks plain silly! Dadi rocks like no-one else and Maya Alagh does a fantabulous job of it! The dialogues were just too good, especially the one in the scene between Kripa and Prithvi and then the one between Angad and Kripa! The episode did not contribute much in the sense of moving the story forward, but Angad's performance (and yeah, he looks like a dream) combined with the anticipation that Monday is going to rock like anything else, made it worthwhile!
PROMO FOR MONDAY
Wait till Monday for that………..

May 2nd Update
Today's Episode Update is dedicated to the following Forum Members!
Nitica, Sonynyu, Sugar, Dinky&IQ, Radz2Cool, Mink, Samie, M&M, Kariya and last but not the least Lata for making this Forum the way it is….lively, bubbly, sparkling, energetic, spirited, animated and a lot more, I am running out of adjectives, but not out of my affection for all of you!
Before the rest of you guys, lung forward to wrangle me, I am going to dedicate each update from today onwards to a set of Forum Members,…….as a way of saying Thanks to all of you for you immense support & love! The order of names is totally random, I think that all of you are so cool and totally rock my world!
A special song for Sugar (for the aunty snub…sniff) – Itne pariye jo ho tum, pehle kabhi toh nahin the, mera jahan mein gamon ki, tum toh wajah hi nahin the….kab tak jeenenge aise batao, aise mujhe na tum aazmao, bolo tum bolo…………..
I want to kill Ekta Kapoor, actually torture the woman and then kill her…..or maybe something more drastic! Itna anticipation badaya, aur end mein itna bada let down! Kripa ko dikhaya bhi nahin, makeover ke baad! Kal tak intezaar karna hoga, what a bore!
But the good news is that we got to see pot loads of Angad and boy…..I think rating him for his looks and acting is liking placing a lamp before the Sun….this guy is gonna go very, very far in his career! Amazing performance and drop dead gorgeous on screen! The way his warmth and confidence blazes the screen is just worth watching! And he certainly does not have two left feet, he dances superbly!And today Angad and Kripa's chemistry lit the screen on fire (just one teeny weeny scene, but whatever…dunno why though, when I saw Angad holding Kripa's waist, I felt he was imagining somebody else in her place (wink:wink!) An episode which kind of let me down, but tomorrow there is going to be the much anticipated turn of events, as per the promos…..the love story will begin! But in terms of content, it was not much to write home about, most songs & stage performances…..that way it was an immensely enjoyable episode! A word for Mishti, she has so much effervescence and warmth in her, I really liked her today! And yeah, Prithvi is so cute! But it was Angad, Angad and Angad all the way!
BACKSTAGE FOR THE CONCERT (Chot dil pe lagi, pyar hone laga, who ajnabi mere dil ko, bhala bhala sa laga….Angad to Kripa and back)
Angad and Kartik are in the backstage mulling over last minute details of the concert and getting real tense. Just then Dadi and Kirpa arrive and Angad makes a face and gets that cute, sulky expression of his, Kripa just looks awkward! Kartik greets Dadi very affectionately and hugs her and so does Angad baby! Kartik excuses himself saying that he has lots of last minute work to wrap up, while Dadi tells Angad that she came to wish both Angad and Kripa as its their first concert together. Angad just gets a sulky expression again and tells Dadi whom as she come to wish, him or Kripa. Dadi smiles indulgently at him and tells him that she has come to wish both of them! Kripa just gives one wistful, sad look at Angad and turns her face. Kartik then again comes and takes Angad to a side and tells him that he will have to cover Kripa in the stage performance today, Angad is surprised and asks him why, Kartik says that the Media has given very bad reviews to Kripa and called her down-market, middle-class, average looking girl and that he doesn't want the entire show to be ruined because of that girl. Angad's expressions suggest that he feels very bad when Kartik says this and he gives a sympathetic sideway glance to Kripa, who looks miserable on hearing this and her face becomes very downcast (poor thing, felt so bad for her in this scene and loved Angad for kind of feeling bad for her, sweet chap!) Then Angad immediately comes back to his real self and brushes off Kartik by saying that he doesn't care for anyone else, but he will never let his performance be affected due to someone's else's fault. Angad just gives one of his looks to Kripa and vanishes with Kartik.
Dadi also overhears the conversation (Kartik has no inkling of the word ''Subtle'' I think, the jerk!) and becomes very upset and tells Kripa that she knows Kripa has felt very bad about all that Kartik just said, Kripa who is very downcast and looks ready to cry says that its ok, she did not feel bad at all (awwww, see, the lady is warming up to my heart once more….Chill dinx, don't get the baseball bat out so soon….) Dadi tells her that she knows a magician who will enhance Kripa's natural beauty all the more and make her the brightest star of the glamour world.
REHERSALS FOR THE CONCERT (Jo chu liya aaj tumnein, jee lenge hum phir who lamhe…)
The back stage is all abuzz with the Concert thing and the Choreographer is very excited and tells Angad and Kripa to get into their positions soon. The Choreographer tells Angad to hold Kripa's waist, Angad makes a wry face and Kripa's face completely falls down and she looks ready to die. Dadi is sitting in a corner watching the rehearsals. As Angad places his hands over Kripa's face, his face gets very awkward and he looks somewhere else, while Kripa just makes a funny face (She does have silly expressions at times) and closes her eyes tightly as if to remind herself that this is just a show and it will get over soon. Dadi is very surprised at their reactions and tells herself that she cannot understand what is going on between Angad and Kripa. At times she feels that there is a deep attractions between both of them, at times she feels that they cannot bear to look at each other's faces and at times she feels that both of them have fallen in love and are trying their best to fight that emotion as much as they can. Dadi thinks that something has to be done for this.
The Choreographer calls off and wishes Angad and Kripa best of luck for the concert, Angad looks highly relieved to let go off Kripa's waist and walks out, while Kripa looks as if she will faint with relief! (lucky woman, I tell you!)
MANISH MALHOTRA'S OFFICE (Kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar, Main Hoon Naa…..Manish to Kripa!)
The scene basically shows Manish's fuzzy image and his voice commenting on Kripa that she has good eyes, a warm smile and basically she is good looking, only she needs polishing. Dadi is all smiles, and Kripa looks unsure. Manish tells her that unless and until Kripa has the confidence in herself to change and face the world, he cannot do much. Dadi answers for Kripa and says that all Kripa needs is a catalyst and that she will be ready to take on the World. Then Dadi tells Kripa that does she know who this guy is, who has changed the way heroines look today, who has brought a new trend in the industry and who is called a makeover magician, its Manish Malhotra. The Camera focuses on the hottie's face and he is all, Well, I am the best, kind of smile and all.
The next scene shows Kripa being groomed, with her hair being chip-chopped and some stuff being applied to her face!
BACKSTAGE (Maar daala….hai maar daala – Kartik to Naina Mummy!)
Kartik is very anxious about the Concert as it is the first one that he is handling for the family without Naina being around, Anita comes near him and in her typical bitchy manner tells him that she put in a word with Naina aunty that Kripa is performing with Angad today. Kartik is furious and tells a pleased Anita that why the hell did she go and bleat about this to Naina, and she would have anyway come to know of it later on. Just then Kartik's cell phone rings and he picks it up with much anticipation as he sees Naina's number flashing, Naina blasts him off like anything and tells him that how could he ruin Angad's concert by putting a down-market, ordinary looking girl like Kirpa opposite to him. Naina says that if something happens to Angad's career because of this stupidity, she will never forgive Kartik for this.
Meanwhile Angad's eyes are searching for someone, and as Mannan comes and tells him to get ready to go onto the stage, Angad very casually asks if everyone is ready and if everyone has come, Mannan gets the cue (clever boy) and tells him, ya everyone, except Kripa. Angad gets a disgruntled expression on his face and just gives a frustrated grunt, as if he doesn't care where she is!
On the other hand Prithvi (looking very dapper in a white linen shirt and denims) is also very anxious and his eyes seem to be searching for Kripa. He bumps into Mishti who gives a real hard time and teases him very badly. (Loved Mishti & Prithvi's chemistry in this scene, they actually looked like Siblings!) Prithvi is blushing like crazy and tells Mishti to scoot off, but in the end acknowledges that he is worried like crazy for Kripa and hopes that she pulls this performance off very well! Mishti is all overwhelmed and very happy for Prithvi!
Meanwhile a lady wearing a halter neck blouse and blue Chiffon Skirt is seen to sway and come inside the dressing room, a warm smile spreads over Angad's face as he greets, Esha Kopikkar warmly and she tells him that she has come to wish him all the best and to request that he has to come for the premier of her new film, Kya Kool Hain Hum. Angad is like, awww, Esha, I would have come anyway, but I am so touched that you came and I am dedicating a performance to you! Both of them are like buddy-buddy type of conversation!
Manini De, the lady who comes as Pari in JJKN, is the anchor (very irritating, I tell you) and in her silly, Pari type style announces that the moment everyone was waiting for is finally here and Angad will be performing on ''Chaska Mera Chaska'' from Kya Kool Hain Hum. The Screen is then ablaze with Angad's different poses, and he obviously looking va-va-vroom in all of them….especially the one with the blue light, which focuses only on Angad's eyes. Angad comes on stage and Esha Kopikkar (very pretty smile, btw), Mishti and Anita are cheering for him from the audience.
CHASKA MERA CHASKA – Performance by Angad
Very good dance steps, Angad looking like a million dollars! The highlights of the song were that it emphasized on Angad's face and expressions, and he actually looked like a Rock Star!
KABHI NEEM NEEM – Performance by Madhushree
Love this song, Madhushree performed on this, sang really well!
TUM HAIN AAJ MAINE JO DEKHA – Performance by Madhushree
Love this song too, again a very good performance by the talented singer
KAISA YE PYAR HAI – Performance by Angad
Again a great performance by Angad, on this lovely song! Loved the lyrics as well, Sugar had posted them before, hence not repeating it! Lovely steps, good expressions and his confidence on stage showed very well!
BOLE CHUDIYAN – Performance by Kumud, Kshitij, Garv and Kali
I found it plain silly, none of them could dance very well except Kali! Kumud looking so fat…..Kali looked very nice & petite thought, and the men were quite delectable, especially Kshitij!
BIJURIYA – My favourite Amit Sana!
Dunno why he didn't sing the song very well…..and he looked funny! But whatever, I like him better than Abhijeet, so I anyway enjoyed the performance!
BACKSTAGE (Kya yahi pyar hain, bolo, kya yahi pyar hai, dil tere bin kahin lagta nahin, waqt goozarta nahin – Mishti to Angad)
Angad is backstage busy signing autographs and looking different from his usual self, kind of lost and not his usual confident, gregarious self! Mishti is watching him from a distance and a sweet smile spreads over her face. As Angad is giving autographs, a beautiful pair of hand stretches out for Angad to sign on, he looks up in surprise and exclaims, ''Mishti?'' She asks him if he wouldn't give her autograph, he smiles and says he would, but only on paper. Mishti burst out laughing and takes out a piece of paper and he signs it for her. Angad tells her that he does not belived in love and all that mush, but he also believes that here are a set of crazy people on whom falling in love suits and Mishti is one of them. As a glowing Mishti looks on, he tells her pretty seriously that she should let go of her single status and get hitched big time and that being in love will really suit her! Mishti then tells him very shyly that he is looking very handsome today, Angad is kind of taken aback by this statement and very apprehensively says thanks to her. As Angad walks for his next performance, Mishti is left looking at Angad with a ''Am I falling in Love with Him'' kind of look and Prithvi comes from behind and teases her mercilessly over it. Mishti tells Prithvi that he always tells her that no one in the world can win an argument with her, but today she has found someone who could not only win over Mishti in an argument but actually leave her speechless and she is feeling elated that she lost to this person. Prithvi understands whom she is referring to and looks very happy for Mishti!
Meanwhile Kripa is back in the Green Room and getting the final touches to her makeup when Prithvi comes and knocks on the door and tells her very shyly that he has come to wish her all the best. Kripa's nervous voice comes that she is getting dressed and she cannot see him. Prithvi tells her that once the concert is over he wants to see Kripa's bright and confident face and not a downcast and failed one, Kripa outstretches her hand from the door and Prithvi very sweetly takes it and wishes her all the best. Misthi comes from behind and tells him that now is he relieved that he has wished his Kripa. Prithvi blues like mad and tells yes, he is feeling much better now, Mishti hugs her brother affectionately.
IS PYAR KO MEIN KYA NAAM DOON – Angad and Kripa's stage performance!
Manini announces that the time has come for which everyone was waiting. Today a new star is going to be launched along with none other than Angad and this star has been groomed by Manish Malhotra. Everyone gives an encore for the performance to begin and chants Angad's name in a frenzy! Angad is shown to be on the stage, looking enchanting and surprisingly very innocent. He starts off with the lines of Is pyar ko mein kya naam doon, as the audience cheer wildly for him, and Mishti watches him enthralled from there. Just then a female voice is heard from the background, who gives the encore to the song in a classical base, and as Angad turns back surprised and anxious, he is rooted to his stop, as he looks at Kripa, who is looking (a long shot actually, her face was not shown, only her overall appearance) very different and actually stunning (sorry Dinx, she did look nice from far!) in a short, silver, encrusted dress, her hair colored and curled from beneath. The episode ends on Angad's thunder-struck face as he keeps looking at Kripa, breathless and amazed!
SPECIAL ''TADKA'' COMMENTS BY CHILLY CHATPATA (Malai Mar Ke…)
Ekta Kapoor and Sony should win a ''Blow your own Trumpet so hard, that it bursts on your face'' award, the way they advertise about their shows and fimls so shamelessly! Its disgusting after a while! But as someone said, that Ekta is just concerned with her TRP's and nothing else, so its ok, I guess!
As I said before, the episode was a let down in some sense and also a great one in some others. Let down because, we were all anticipating Angad & Kripa's performance today, and that did not happen, it will happen in tomorrow's episode! But a great episode because, we gotta see our dude dancing on some good numbers and yeah, even in the few dialogues he had, he shined brightly. His expressions were very good, especially when he had to hold Kripa's waist, he was adorable and also when Kartik calls Kripa down-market, the way his face goes all melt-melt was so endearing! That way Iqbal is truly dynamic in his performance, he can look like a saint one moment and a sinner the other!
Kripa actually looked adorable today, in the one small scene she had, with virtually no dialogues……she looked very innocent and so much like the old Naintial waali Kripa! And she seemed to look pretty attractive in the silver, backless thingy, though her face was not show properly!
Kartik acts well, he is very cute in his own snobbish way! Dadi is an angel and yes, the one who will hook up our love birds together (by lovebirds I refer to Angad and Kripa and not Iqbal and our buddy, btw!)
Prithvi and Mishti share an awesome chemistry, they look warm, affectionate and loving and actually behave like siblings. Mishti acts very well and she has a lovely smile, very genuine and unaffected! Prithvi is just too good a character, they should have added some meanness or negativity to balance his goodness!
The stage performances were good, but completely overshadowed by Angad, I guess that was the whole idea!
Tomorrow's episode is going to be the turning point in Kripa's feelings towards Angad, when Tania tells her that Angad actually helped her out financially and saved her from trouble, by offering her to perform in the concert, much against Naina's wishes. The promos ended on Kripa's shocked and guilty face! Awwww, ab toh Kripa gayi kaam se!
