A Decisive man, A irresolute Girl, A girl who had to face the mirror n see the pimples, acne's n all , A Woman who continues to exist with her head in the clouds ...they made the ensemble of what was essentially slow episode but when looked overall.. the story progressed a bit but just a bit !!
Arnav Singh Raizada finally realized two points ..1.) he does not feel anything for Lavanya Kashyap . 2.)..He never did anything right where she was concerned ...decisive man that he is, he forthwith proceeds to set the house in order ...He enters Lavanya's room and endeavors to clarify his stance , not with clinical precision neither with cold detachment but with gentleness , firmness and above all with compassion ..A compassion which soon mingles with respect for a supposed vacuous girl at her thoughtful gesture..
I loved the fact that Arnav Singh Raizada who has decided to end the farce is moving determinedly towards Lavanya's room to acquaint her with his decision Pauses the moment he sees Khushi, looks her carefully to check whether she is alright, whether she is still in the grip of powerful emotion .. on noting that she is almost normal..He moves on His errand..Good directorial touch that !!
Khushi Kumari Gupta ..A girl firmly intent on telling the truth to the concerned person, fearful that her disclosure might bring about another stalled marriage for Payal but that fact does not allow for any deviation from the course of truth that she has chosen ..But the moment the Mangalsutra falls and Anjali begins her lamentation , Khushi's toughness melts and turns to jelly ..leaving her wavering on her intention...Not just that she promises to save Anjali's marriage at any cost...Pray tell me How ??..Is she going to be shadowing Shyam on his every nightly rendezvous..will she be ordering her DM to immobilize him and keep him near Anjali Always..I'm flummoxed ..
Now the loving part ..even when she must be hurting rotten inside..her only concern is that her broken engagement shud not throw a pall of gloom on the upcoming E' ceremony ...Khushi Kumari Gupta...Ur heart is a ocean of love , unselfish love...
Anjali ...The cuckoo Girl... Her Mangal Sutra breaks ..and what does she do?? does she take it to the Goldsmith to get it repaired ..No !! She immediately Dials Devi Mayya n starts her next round of Vrats to ensure a long life for her hubby ...From the Panic attack she goes into as soon as the chain breaks..One would have been pardoned if one thought that she just received the news that her Husband came under a 100 ton Lorry and turned into a pulp ...But it also underscored, nay triple scored how clingy , how dependent she is on that husband of hers..A husband whom she considers to be her foundation but does not know is a marshy swamp who will suck her down ..
Some tough Love for Anjali too ... Anjie Baby... Stop doing so much Vrats, pooja's ...U r polluting the RM with the constant smoke emanating from the Havan's ... U r prolly turning anorexic and tired , incapable of being active where it actually matters *ahem, Ahem** focus on that area ...n Ur Hubby will not even desert u for a sec... Loved the fact that despite facing a cataclysmic disaster of cosmic proportion [ Mangal Sutra breaking ] ..she still had enough wits and concern to note the empty finger ...And A Muhwazz for the simple fact that out of all the ppl, she was the only one who openly expressed her concern for Khushi's feelings, her battered emotions ... Just for that Anjie Baby, will forgive even ur 365 days Vrats n Pooja's..
Lavanya Kashyap ...A girl who has seen the truth, faced the truth , refuses to acknowledge the truth !! ... desperately clinging on to the last shards of her bubble wrap...When A persistent Arnav finally tears down her last illusion .. She reluctantly but with grace faces the music..She musters up her courage and confesses that she knew all along that ASR never did love her but she was lying to herself , such was the power of her lies that she herself was beguiled into believing it too be truth ... Lavanya understands that Arnav does not love her ..does not hold him culprit for jilting her ... courteously tells him that he must never feel guilty ...Earns Arnav's respect by magnanimously requesting him not to reveal the broken relationship thereby spoiling the happy atmosphere ..This girl has traveled long way but is it for keeps ??..Also found it odd that she said that she loved him so so much ... it did not sound convincing cos we never saw the ' So much in love ' girl ..we saw a empty headed girl wanting to become Mrs.ASR ...Hmmm.. Lost in translation or badly conceived plots ..Take ur pick...
Today..Lavanya towered over everyone ... The amazing changes that she has undergone, the way she has grown was truly astounding..from a girl who thought and lived only for herself and her next appointment with the beautician to a girl who pauses to think about the happiness of a family of whom she is not even a member instead of wallowing in deepest anguish , who quietly accepts ASR's decision without any pleading, tantrums ...and with immense dignity forgives him for playing with her heart ...Lavanya turned out to be a Lady ...A lady with a golden Heart !! ..
The relationship appears to have come to a closure with Arnav finally embracing her, trying to comfort her, conscious, restless even when he was hugging her, and not swept away or lost like the way he is with Khushi..After a decent time elapses ,,He initiates the moving away too ..But has the relationship really come to a closure or will it continue with the two of them becoming friends n Lavanya playing cupid or will there be a brief fling in the future or will she be the one to bring Khushi back into Arnav's orbit again ... Was this a closure n yet not a closure ?? .. The scene rankles for instead of putting a lid , it actually opens a can of worms in this case can of unpleasant speculations !!
The episode was beautifully directed .. with Arnav walking out of the doors to end a relationship , Khushi entering into the house after ending a relationship ... The clever juxtaposition of two parallel happenings in the same house ..Questions posed by one couple answered/elaborated by another duo ..The truth hidden from the others ..whilst each will continue to think the other is committed ...Also loved the fact that there was no melodrama or OTT emotions between Arnav and Lavanya , if anything the scene was underplayed evoking our sympathy which a OTT Lavanya would not have been able to do... With her restrained and dignified retreat Lavanya earns our respect too..
My Only Request to the CV's..Let ARHI romance track start after Shyam's exposure..cos after such a lengthy famine of ARHI Moments ..We surely deserve a long spell of ARHI romance ..CV's..Do u Understand the word LENGTHHHY ..I M sure u do...well understand another point .. when I say Romance after Shyam's exposure..I mean that the he be exposed most expediently ..LET ARHI ROMANCE TRACK BE OUR NEW YEAR"S GIFT N LET IT ROLL ON WITHOUT A ROADBLOCK NAMED SHYAM !!
Nice post Sathya BUT I wholehearted agree 1000% with the green highlighted portion of the post. I also feel La earning ASRs respect is going to play a BIG part in the near future. LA is NOT going away . She Just might TURN Negative or stay Neutral BUT SHE IS HERE TO STAY. LA ASR track is not over and I strongly feel so.
I dont want the Cvs to drag La track unnecessery or turn her into a VAMP but KKG not telling the Raizadas about Shyam is as BAD as La forced ASR to keep mum about their broken engagement. I DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL.
