I am really sorry for not able to post a scene yday. I will try my best to make up for that.
This scene was damn good… wont give anything away now… read on.
Sumeet was at office, when Renuka comes over to meet him. She is feeling sick or rather was pretending to be sick
. (Did she act as if she was fainting? I don't remember.) Sumeet cant obviously let her go home alone so offers to drop her home. But before that he insists that they go to the doctor. Rahul comes to know that Sumeet has taken renuka home. Sumeet doesn't inform Kumkum that he will be late. Rahul comes home and tells Kumkum that Sumeet has gone with Renuka and he isnt comfortable with the fact that Renuka is around Sumeet and even Sumeet doesn't seem to realize it
. Kumkum tells him not to worry, she trusts Sumeet a lot and Sumeet himself is aware of his limits and responsibilities.
Sumeet comes home late after taking renuka to the doc and dropping her home. He comes to his room…. Kumkum looks at him come and removes kurta for him. Sumeet in this mind is telling Kumkum "main janta hoon humhare beech normal pati patni ka rista nahi hai…. Par tum itna tho puchsakti ho ke main itne dair kahan tha? Main tumse kuch chupana nahi chata Kumkum, ek bhar pucho… main tumhe sab sach batana chata hoon." Kumkum says (again in her mind) "uske zarurath nahi hai Sumeet, mujhe tumpar vishwas hai" Sumeet is standing there only, so Kumkum tells him to freshen up and come for dinner coz dada, dadi also haven't eaten their diner, they were waiting for him.
They go to the dinner table. Dadaji asks Sumeet why was he late today… and Sumeet lies
. He talks about a project and says he was busy with that. Kumkum says something in a sarcastic manner which gives Sumeet the hint that may be she knows he is lying. (I don't remember what she said) after dinner Sumeet is going towards his room when Rahul comes in the front and scolds him for whatever is going on between him & Renuka. Sumeet gets angry and says he doesn't have to give him any explanation, he knows what he is doing. Rahul tells him he should be ashamed to lie to Kumkum and that she knows the truth. Sumeet tells Rahul, Kumkum trusts him so he shouldn't be worrying.
Sumeet comes into the room, Kumkum has gone to bed. The minute he steps in she switches off the light at her bed side. Sumeet realizes Kumkum is upset and doesn't want to talk to or listen to him
. he looks around sad, when he sees that Kumkum hasn't had her medicine. He picks it up and goes to her and says "main janta hoon tum mujhse naraz ho, par meri narazgi apni ap par math nikalo. Dawaye kalo. Please." She gets up and takes the medicine from him. Then he says he doesn't want to hide anything from her, but he didn't want to upset dada and dadi that is why he lied. He says that renuka was very sick so he had to take her to the doc and back home. Kumkum remains silent. Sumeet is feeling even bad.
The next morning, renuka calls up and Sumeet is telling her what happened and that Kumkum is very upset. Renuka does all drama and says she will talk to Kumkum everything will be fine. Just then Kumkum walks into the room, takes out her suitcase and starts packing. Sumeet is SHOCKED!
He asks her what is she doing? "Main es ghar ko chodkar jarahi hoon. Hamesha keliye" came Kumkum rude answer. The entire world came crashing down on Sumeet.
Renuka who was on the phone is very happy… Sumeet tells her he will talk to her later and puts the phone down.
Kumkum is walking out of the room, meets everyone. Everyone is shocked by her decision and are worried. But Kumkum is not telling them why she has taken such a drastic step. Sumeet on the other hand was standing almost dead
. He doesn't know how to stop her and convince her that he didn't do anything wrong…
Dadaji asks her again why she is leaving. Kumkum says this day should be marked in the calendar…. She asks dadaji to pick up the calendar. Everyone are so confused. Dadaji picks up the calendar and is relieved. He looks at Kumkum and smiles and says "Kumkum kahin nahi jayegi" and everyone are like what is with the date? Any guesses what was the date? It was April 1st…. APRIL FOOLS DAY!!!
Everyone broke down laughing while Sumeet was still reeling from the shock/fear of Kumkum leaving him and the house. Kumkum turns around and smiles at Sumeet asking "kaisa raha mera april fool ka plan? Banadiya na bewakuf." A slow smile dawned on Sumeet's face it was as if life was being returned to him. he still couldn't believe that Kumkum could play such a prank on him. He was still standing dumbstruck while watching Kumkum laugh away. Looking at her he is thinking, he has seen his smile of hers after such a long time… without any tension on her face. he tells himself to see that smile on her face he is ready to get fooled any number of time(how sweet!)
It is night and Sumeet has still not recovered from the shock Kumkum gave him, while Kumkum cant stop laughing. She asks him how could he even think she would leave the house and go. Sumeet nods his head and says "ek min pal keliye tumne tho meri jaan hi nikal dethi." They finally laugh and say good night to eachother and go to sleep.
The best part was the day this episode was aired… it was the 1st of april, I must admit Kumkum fooled me too.
But I kept wondering why will she take such a drastic step when she knows Sumeet wont do anything wrong. I thought she got upset seeing Sumeet speak to renuka over the phone.
I will continue what happened after this t'row. Another landmark scene… high voltage drama it was.
Btw I forgot another 2 small scenes… very small but beautiful nevertheless.
It was just 2-3 days after marriage... Sumeet was leaving for office without even having breakfast, when veena(or dadi) forces him to have, So he sits down. she asks Kumkum to make sure he doesn't go without having his breakfast, so Kumkum sits down while he eats. They sit quiet, Sumeet finishes eating. While going he says bye to her… she says bye and Sumeet hesitates for a minute and says "aur apna kayal rakna" Kumkum is surprised, confused, happy all at once… Sumeet just leaves. That was the beginning of Sumeet's loving concern for Kumkum.
This was after the dadaji yelled at Sumeet for not taking care of Kumkum during renuka's suicide drama.
Kumkum comes into the room and Sumeet is busy looking at her medicines and writing something. Kumkum comes and asks him what he is doing. He says he is making a chart of the medicines she has to take so that they don't miss out. Kumkum wonders why he is doing it… Sumeet say "main dadaji phirse dhant kahana nahi chata."
He has finished making the chart and tells her she better follow the timetable and take her medicines on time or dadaji wont spare him. Kumkum is touched by the gesture of Sumeet and thanks him… and she gets a bright, brilliant smile from Sumeet which she returns.
That is for the day. I hope u all like it. do leave ur comments, it helps me to correct myself if required.
Bye for now…
Catch u all t'row.
Lots of luv
