Today's epi was interesting overall and although I'm probably the singular person who's found something to nitpick over in the end, I liked it overall. I was gonna wait for Jzee's post but I guess that might be delayed so I'm just gonna blurt out my thoughts this way.
There was more "ladies ki chik chik" type scenes vis a vis Renu and sourpuss MIL but the bits that warmed my heart were seeing Sanjay not blindly going along and still being positive and nice to Megha...this character is really a surprise package in this show with the shades he shows. Second reason why I liked him today...cuz he chose to jhaado that loser Tanu and not blindly go with his wife on this one...and Tanu ki toh Nidhi band bajaa hi rahi hai so that was fun to see as well.
On to Mohan...so they showed a logical progression with Mohan trying to double check the proofs to make sure that they are authentic or not and if he's missing something in this puzzle...for the sake of Nanhi's faith and that of Megha...somewhere he himself isn't willing to believe that Amar could be the culprit...the beginning scene for that matter with Megha imagining Amar showing up to bolster her spirit...another nice touch...very much a manifestation of what Megha needed in that moment I'd say memory wise...and a good way to start the epi and tie it up with the ending MM scene.
Which finally brings me to the most important part of the epi...the last MM scene...firstly I LOVE that music they played in the beginning as Megha walks over to the bench and sits down...it's a very poignant piece...then to a bit of humor with Megha seeing Mohan and telling him ki koi baat samajh mein nahin aati...and Mohan with earphones in his ears can't hear her so he's shaking his head without looking in her direction...I found that damn amusing
Moving on...the graph of the scene grew interestingly with that MOMENT I'd say when Mohan (as always) chooses to soften his tone and hold up a white flag first...and he does with such an honesty genuinely putting forth his dilemna...telling her that for the first time he isn't able to believe the stark proof in front of him... somewhere it strikes a chord with Megha enough for her to open up a bit too...and I loved the way she sort of started with a fond smile at reminiscing and then moving on to talking about the case in particular...that interaction there as Mohan asks her follow up questions...
Megha has the idealist streak that her FIL has in some ways too...maybe it's more theatrical flourish types to show her saying, "All I have with me is faith that Amar is innocent" but it gets a bit whimsical...they turned the moment poignant there but somewhere I was expecting a different flow maybe...and to top it off they have to show Mohan saluting her for her strength after this...I just felt the gesture came a bit quickly...they could have shown more interaction...a gap before this gesture...in some ways the flow of the scenes becomes patchy...maybe I'm the only one who felt this way but otherwise I loved the scene.
Anyways, the promo has perked me up for next week again...Mohan fumbling with his ice-cream, Megha laughing at him and him giving a pained smile in response...hilarious
P.S. Tiny glimpse of Guru today with the snoring but chalo atleast they showed him
