I finally watched today's episode and I have to say I really liked it. True it wasn't as packed as yesterday, nor did the drama really play out but I thought it was just the perfect episode to curb the drama before it became melodrama. I love how the whole thing is pretty much Pinky chases Pintoo who in turn goes after Krishna who gets a reminder of her bigger dreams.
This is a chain I have been enjoying watching. Every time Pintoo and Krishna have a big encounter and their feelings are about to consume them, resulting in some sort of public humiliation for Krishna, she gets a reminder of her BDO dreams. Just after the engagement when she was feeling low, Chanchal and Ravi took her to the BDO's bungalow, not knowing that that was the one thing she needed and again just as she comes off this confrontation with Pinky and Saraswati is shouting at her, VP comes in to tell her about her results being announced. I think this is symbolic of the whole story. Krishna may face any number of hardships in her life but her dreams will see her through!
I also liked how Pintoo behaved somewhat civilised with Pinky after Krishna told him to. It was also interesting that he went to comfort her and she told him that Pinky needed him, perhaps implying that she didn't. It is interesting that her saying that at the police station had such an adverse effect while here it sort of cleans Pintoo's act towards Pinky up. The influence of Krishna is gradually developing and making him a better person, even if it is not with her.
I know Ganga seemed a bit harsh today but what Pintoo did was really unforgivable. I think she was sympathetic to him until he was not committed to Pinky fully but I see her as a woman who sets a lot of store by fulfilling her relationships completely. Even though sometimes you can sense that she HATES her husband she is still loyal and kind to him and I guess this is what she expects from Pintoo as well. Be happy with your lot in life. Again, this is a cliche usually used for mothers and daughters and like I said in yesterday's discussion, for all his machismo, Pintoo much more closely resembles a cliched damsel in distress.
Finally, I agree with you all. The phone conversation was wonderful! While his mother calls Pinky, his first thought is to call Krishna and talk to her. And he seemed so calm and at peace when he was talking to her though the awkwardness was there. It was also wonderful to see his confidence that she would become a BDO and the pleasure he takes in that fact.
What a contrast the phone conversation with Pinky was! Poor girl! Even though he was perfectly cordial with her, I got the feeling that he sort of derived this strength and patience through his conversation with Krishna. With Pinky he was barely civil and cut the call as soon as possible but with Krishna he found an excuse to keep the conversation a little longer after he had said what he had to about the incident, with the badhayi about becoming a BDO. It is also possible that he knows he won't be able to congratulate her in public so does his best and gets the message across. This felt so real!
Ok I really don't know what the result will be! At first I thought all the people rooting for Krishna were being too overconfident so there would definitely be a shock for them when she didn't make it. BUT TTS and Bihari are being overconfident too, so I really don't know! Hats off to the CVs for keeping the suspense. Or have there been spoilers I missed? Please say no!
Anyway Pinky has to pass because we have already been through the self-destruction thing after the interview and what would they show now if she failed? The question is will Krishna pass or will they make her fail and fight the corruption? I hope she just passes already!
