Here is the update for today's episode. Please ignore mistakes.
The episode begins at the very scary point it was left yesterday. Lakshmi, having spilled coffee on Arjun's dad starts apologizing furiously saying that she wasn't looking where she was going and that she was looking behind and hence accidentally spilled coffee on him. Arjun's dad meanwhile was looking at her furiously and when she stopped speaking he told her sternly that a person should always look ahead and walk to which Lakshmi agreed and apologized again. Arjun's dad brushed her off saying it was ok and that she should leave. Arjun looked on helplessly and signalled her to leave. As she was leaving, lakshmi cursed herself for having spilled coffee on her future father-in-law!
His dad then walked over to where Arjun was standing and asked him about Lakshmi, to which Arjun responded that he didn't know her and that she probably had come looking for a job in their office. Arjun's dad commented that people like her weren't even fit to work in their office and Arjun looked at him sadly. Arjun tries to divert his attention asking him not to spoil his mood and requests him to check the presentation before the clients came in. Arjun's dad asked him for the presentation after warning him for his slip-up addressing him as Dad in office! (banda professional to hai!) The scene shifts to next morning, Lakshmi's place, wedding preparations on in full swing. Bua is worried about the amount of work still left and is wondering how she will do it alone. just then our hero, our munda Arjun comes in and assures her that everything will be done since he is there to help. Bua starts explaining to him the long list of work that has to be completed while he listens on patiently and carefully assuring her. Then he sets off to work,handling everything perfectly, even serving the guests refreshments himself(Arjun Agnihotri ji, dekho pyaar me kya-kya karna padta hai)., and clicking pictures for kids.
Enter our EVIL CHACHI, whi claims to be a family member otherwise but here, is shown cribbing that its one of a kind wedding where the guests are made to work and that no one has even offered her a class of cold drink since moring. Arjun who is passing by carrying a tray of cold drinks offers her a glass to which she again complains saying telling him that he intends to send her to the hospital by making her drink cold drink in winters. Arjun quickly grabs a cup of hot tea from a passing waiter and brings it to her and says take your pick. Chachi smiles and praises him saying he is the only one who actually takes care of her. She then enquires about the where abouts of Lakshmi. At that very moment, our sunshine Lakshmi makes a dhamaakedaar entry bringing the groom's party along. her sister is delighted by her gesture. Lakshmi rightly says that since the two had the haldi ceremony on the same day, she thought it would be best to have it together-double the people, double the fun! The sisters share an emotional moment with Saraswati appreciating Lakshmi for getting the groom there since he didn't really have many people to enjoy the ceremony in his own family.
Lakshmi's father, standing besides Arjun praises Lakshmi telling him that he is proud to have a daughter like her, who despite living in her own dreamland, never forgets about her family. He tells him how, more than him, its Lakshmi who has planned and undertaken so much for her sister saving each penny from her Kathak classes. He prays that God may grant Lakshmi's dreams too. Arjun thinks to himself, that Lakshmi's dreams are right there, real, in front of her own eyes, in her very reach.
They begin the haldi ceremony amidst much fanfare, with lakshmi being the first to apply haldi on her di n Jiju, obediently following Bua's instructions of starting with the feet going up to knees, hands n then face. She is followed by the other relatives. Her mausi applies haldi on her too. She protests but Mausi cuts her off saying that according to belief, an unmarried girl who applies haldi gets married sooner. Lakshmi's cousins a busy drooling on Ajay saying that they would get married to him in the blink of an eye if he agreed. They call lakshmi and request her to introduce them to him. She looks annoyed and they apologize immediately saying that they thought he is just her friend. she then says that he IS just a friend and that she would happily get them married to him, in a slightly irritated voice. she takes them to him and introduces him to them. They flirt with him clearly and he seems slightly uncomfortable, subtly denying their offers at getting him something to eat or drink. They then crack a joke n Lakshmi joins in their laughter when Bua comes to Arjun's rescue, scolding the girls for being behind his back. The girls leave unwillingly. Lakshmi tries to tease him saying that though he looks okay, he is pretty bad in the girls department. Arjun retorts by reminding her of the coffee spilling incident from earlier in the day and how she looked so nervous then. Lakshmi tries to turn the tables saying that he was HER to-be father in law but Arjun cuts her off pointing out the TO-BE part! Lakshmi playfully applies haldi on his cheek and runs away with Arjun following close on her heels. They share a cute and playful moment. The relatives, Chachi n Mausi are commenting as to there is nothing special about the haldi and that its getting very boring to which Chachi adds her expert comments bragging about HER(when did she buy it?) Delhi saying that they have a lot of fun in such ceremonies there, calling professional music players and that girls dance with zeal. Lakshmi enters and ensures her that there would be nothing falling short in her sister's wedding. And so begins the dance with Arjun playing the dhol(). The song is a parody of Mere Angne mein with the wordings instead being that she would marry a rich man, a man with a jet and not a scooter, a man with a blazer n not shirt-pant, that she wouldn't amrry any NRI, she would marry a guy who had a big mansion. She wouldn't marry a doctor or an engineer, but only the owner of a listed company(IPO Wala). As Lakshmi dances around playfully, Arjun looks at her lovingly, admiring her smiling form. Both her sister n the groom notice her talking freely to Ajay and Saraswati asks him for his viewpoint to which he says that he can see that Lakshmi likes Ajay, but isn't ready to accept it because she has built her imaginary world with Arjun Agnihotri(Don't worry! Ajay bhi kam nai hai). They decide to wait for things to happen on their own!
P.S.-Sorry for the shabby song translation-thats the best I could translate a hindi song to English
Didn't want you guys to miss out on the brilliant lyrics.
