Wonderful! I so wanted to discuss this so thanks for making this post!
Ganga stole the show in last night's episode, I thought.
TTS was trying all his best manipulative tactics, ie having Pintu tell her about what happened at the station, to get her to sympathise and buy into his false image as a benevolent man who takes the high road, even when he is unjustly insulted. I loved the eyelock between them after TTS "comforts" Pintoo, bringing him further on his side, so to speak. Ganga knows something isn't right and TTS knows she knows. He looks at her like he has won a challenge against her and almost dares her to say anything, which she chooses not to. Confrontation is clearly not her way of approaching problems.
The second scene where she had almost no dialogue was the one when Dehati and Bihari come. I love the disapproval that was oozing out of every pore and when TTS called VP's family "chote log" after Dehati apologised, Ganga's look of shock and anger was priceless!
It looks like Pintu is paying the price for declaring allegiance to his father. Somewhere below all that swagger and arrogance, there is a kind, intelligent and sensitive boy who is heart broken at the thought of marrying into a family who are diametrically opposite. The pleading looks he gives his mother as TTS and Bihari crack crass jokes, interspersing money and relationships as though it was the most natural thing in the world, almost made me cry. I loved that he looked at her almost with resignation and when she touched him she was telling him not to give up as she would not let this happen! This scene has made me want to see more of the Ganga-Pintoo relationship as they seem to be the two peacemakers of the family, while TTS and Babloo are the hot headed extremes, always at loggerheads.
Hats off to Ganga for yesterday's performance!
