Heh..didn't find the epi that exciting today. It was OK-ish.
Bua stops Lakshmi from going into the courtyard, fearing that Lakshmi will get colored. Lakshmi confidently tells Bua that no one will dare touch her today. Only Arjun has the right to color her first but before that she will color him. Lakshmi tells Bua about the bet between ArMi. Bua very dramatically starts blessing her to win but Lakshmi doesn't wait for the blessing and leaves.
Lakshmi is on the way to the courtyard when all the children from Sanatan nagar surround her. She scolds them and tells them that the target today is Arjun Agnihotri and not her. One little girl claims that even she is waiting for him and Lakshmi scolds her
Some boy gives an idea of digging a big hole and hiding it with paper and when Arjun will walk on it, he will fall in the pit. Lakshmi says that Arjun is not that dumb and he won't be walking but driving here. She tells the kids to surround Arjun as soon as he steps out of the car, then she will catch him. The line maaru little girl again asks Lakshmi what she intends to do with Arjun once she catches him.
Lakshmi is all
and scolds the girl again for talking too much.
She clarifies that she only wants to color him. The children all agree with her plan.
Some guy in white is standing besides Arjun's car. The chillar party surround him and Lakshmi shouts Happy Holi and jumps out, to color the guy, but stops short, when she sees that its not Arjun. She even adorably asks "Arre yeh kaun hai?" all confused.
Meanwhile Arjun calls Lakshmi from somewhere behind her and as soon as she turns around, he colors her face.
Lakshmi is shocked and claims that he cheated. Arjun asks what she had intended to do with her monkey gang.
Everything is fair in love and war and he didn't cheat. He reminds her that she lost the bet.
Lakshmi colors his face and tries to run away but Arjun grabs her hand. Lakshmi tells him to let go, since everyone was staring(they weren't actually)
, but he refuses and reminds her that she has to stop calling him "Aap" and "Arjunji". He wants his old Lakshmi back. Lakshmi agrees and Arjun lets go. Lakshmi threatens him with Kanpuriya Holi
and turns towards the children to help drench Arjun with water and colors but the children are all sitting dejected. On some prodding, she comes to know that there was some water pipe mishap and hence Sanatan nagar won't be getting any water that day.
Everyone stars worrying about water and how they will cook without it. Lakshmi is all sad and everyone starts requesting Lakshmi to do something (Woh kya karegi? Why is everyone telling her to do something)
Lakshmi turns back to apologize to Arjun about the fiasco and finds that he's not there.(She is STILL CALLING HIM AAP AND ARJUN JI! AM so going Ghajini on the girlYOU LOST THE BET! STOP IT NOW!)
Suddenly Arjun comes back and asks Lakshmi why she is still standing there, his family is on the way. (So he drove faster to get to her sooner? and that too alone? Isse kehte hai despogiri to see your loved one)
A car stops in front of them and out comes Dadi, Aakash and Swati. (It looks like the same car went back and got the rest of the family o.O)
Everyone greets each other. Lakshmi takes Dadi's blessing, the old fashioned way(touching feet) and then Dadi hugs her. Swati compliments Lakshmi on looking extra beautiful and Arjun smiles. (It always amuses me how Arjun becomes so proud whenever someone compliments Lakshmi. Like its his personal victory)
Dadi claims that all the beauty will soon get hidden with colors. She tells the servants to bring all the Holi gifts inside.
Bua is shocked at so many gifts and Dadi says that since the whole Sanatan Nagar is Lakshmi's family, they got gifts for all.
Lakshmi's dad inquires about Arjun's parents. Dadi tells him that they are both on a business trip and in their family, one doesn't travel during festivals and hence they couldn't attend. She claims that Arjun's dad really really wanted to celebrate Holi with Lakshmi and her family(Jhoothi Dadi The lies are piling up)
but she stopped him from traveling. She tells Lakshmi's dad that she is aware that they must think that they are making up excuses all the time about business and it must be hard to believe them. Lakshmi's dad says that he trusts them and believes them
, he'd just wanted to meet them during the festival. Lakshmi's dad asks Dadi to wish Arjun's parents from their side and to tell them that he is waiting to meet them soon.( I foresee that RV is going to insult Lakshmi's dad soon)
Dadi asks why everyone is so quiet and sad. Arjun asks the same thing and Lakshmi reminds him about the water shortage. Arjun says that when he is there, no one can be sad. He whistles and a water tank stands outside Sanatan Nagar and everyone beams at him, especially Lakshmi. Everyone starts applying colors and Arjun's eyes stalk Lakshmi as she goes around getting colored and applying it. (Seriously, his eyes only follow her)Precap:
Arjun and Lakshmi dancing on some ancienttt song.
Looks like someone took Bhaang, for he seems very touchy feely with her.
