The episode starts with Kripa's younger brother peforming a pooja. Kripa watches him from far, keeping an eye out for her mother. They plan on convincing Gayatri to allow Kripa to attend Angad's academy in Mumbai. When Kripa sees her mother, she joins her brother in the prayer. At first, she doesn't know what to say, but then says she is thankful to have a caring and understanding mother etc. Kripa continues saying its not a big deal if she can't go to Mumbai. Gayatri's [Kripa's mother] smiles. After Kripa finishes her prayer, she sees her mother and pretends to be surprised. Gayatri gives Kripa the good news- she has decided to allow Kripa to join Angad's academy in Mumbai. Kripa as expected is elated at the news. Kripa's father brings jalebis to celebrate the auspicious occasion. Gayatri eats a jalebi despite having diabetes.
Meanwhile in Mumbai, Mr Khanna prepares for yet another interview and photo shoot. I wonder why his parents are hogging all the limelight- shouldn't Angad be the one giving interviews and photo shoots? Anyway, Sharma calls up Khanna and tells him the good news- Kripa is going to join his academy and Sharma will bring her to Mumbai the following day. Khanna pretends to be thrilled with the news, but in reality is not. After the phone call, Khanna discloses the news to his business partner or PR guy. The guy tells him that the news could help the Khanna's public image and hence boast the sales of Angad's music albums. Khanna is convinced but is worried about what his wife will think. PR guy tells him not to worry as Naina is ready to sacrifice anything for a good public image.
Kripa and her best friend (don't remember her name, sorry) are sitting outside, staring at the stars. Friend tells Kripa she is lucky to be going to Mumbai and meeting with her love, Angad. Kripa says she doesn't expect to win Angad's respect- she just respects Angad a lot and somewhere within that respect lies her love for him.
Kripa's father remembers the time when Khanna left for Mumbai. He remembers him saying that he won't change and will surely call his best friend to Mumbai one day.
At St Peters High School: Kripa and her classmates take part in a pre-graduation (I think) ceremony. The school principal announces that Kripa will not take part in the graduation because she will in Mumbai pursing her dream as a singer. He invites Kripa to come up on stage and sing a song. Kripa sings the Indian Idol theme song. After the song, Kripa's friends join her on stage and wish her the best of luck in Mumbai.
Later on, Kripa comes home from the ceremony. She finds her brother in her room, arranging his toys and stuff. Little brother says he has been waiting for this moment for a long time- to finally get his own room. Kripa gets upset at his being so happy about her leaving and wants to know where her stuff is. She finds it in the closet, all arranged nicely. She hugs her brother for saving her stuff and the two share a nice brother-sister moment.
Gayatri collapses on the sofa and Kripa's father calls out for her. They take her to the hospital, where thankfully Gayatri is okay. She asks Kripa why she is still in Naintal- she should be on the train to Mumbai. Gayatri scolds Sharma for worrying too much about her and tries to assure everyone that she'll be fine in a few days. But Kripa says she isn't leaving. Gayatri finally convinces her to go. But Sharma stays back to care for Gayatri.
Kripa's little brother and best friend drop her off at the train station. On the train ride to Mumbai, Kripa listens to Angad's songs, excited about embarking on a new journey. A thrilled Kripa finally reaches Mumbai. The episode ends with Kripa saying that she is finally in Angad's city of Mumbai and very soon will meet him.
Comments: Tonight's episode was nice and moved fast. There were also some sweet moments between Kripa and her parents. I think the actress that plays Gayatri is doing a fabulous job- she portrays the character very realistically. No Angad today again, boo-hoo ;) I hope he'll be introduced tomorrow or else we'll have to wait until next week. I also can't wait to see the scene when Kripa and Angad meet. It should be a great one. We all know Kripa idolizes Angad but what will happen when she finally meets and realizes the real Angad?
