Priya...FABULOUS! As always, you hit the nail on the head! I couldn't watch the epi in its entirety because of uploading issues on some of the sites, but I think I caught the important scenes. Today the foundation was laid for what is to come...The biggest joy for me was to see every character true to their form! We are now all on the same page, its time to move the story forward!
Thanxx Anji...love those lines...had heard them long back...but u just too good in putting them at the right place
I also watched the epi just once - but surprisingly for me today it was not an unrest at the end of it, which usually happens - maybe cos i know we moving finally on the story front..And yess every character was in their perefect form ystrday...I love the family's reactions when Paayal and maami were on stage - it was the same yestrday too - thats a beautiful capture the director has done wid -and today it was nice to see, how ASR responded to others jeering...also liked backstage how Shyaam even said the consolatry words to Maami...that was really nice !!!
I didn't catch the Mami-Payal skit--just as well I suppose! Did see their convo in the greenroom...This is just a ripple in what will soon be a tidal wave! As you correctly pointed out, it will be Arnav, & may I add, Khushi, who will shelter Payal from it! Arnav has always been sensitive to Payal. Their scene today was especially significant in reminding us of what is to come. Khushi-Payal's interaction was classic...Payal confides, tells her not to worry...And if anyone can understand Veena's pain & make a sacrifice, it is these two sisters...again, the CVs kept their reactions consistent to what we know to be true!
Ya,we know Khushi will always be there for Paayal,wat may come - unless Paayal comes to harm her Arnav ji which wont ever happen so that assured, both the sisters' righteousness was beautifully shown !!!
Khushi and the MC...Tlly agree with what you said here...She calls a spade, a spade..It was all an act...She might as well be telling them about her marriage...Yes, she's making an excuse to ensure another's victory, but this time she doesn't want the prize, she doesn't want to share it with her husband. He has deceived her. She wants the truth! Yet, when Nani questions her, she reveals nothing. The facade is intact..Again, true to her character...
Yes you said it perfectly - thats y it was two different montages - she says to the orgaisers wat had to be an indifferent act - her bad, the peeping tom heard it and when Naani come, the sanctity of her marriage was intact - no way she will play down her relationship with him infront of the family - same thing notice - when Anjali says "dnt tell chotey" - the look in her eyes - it was no way i will allow him to face any wrath - watever be the bitter equations between us !!!
The confrontation: Loved how you described this scene--yes, the show's signature tagline in motion!!! Sparked by his wife's dhokebaaz & not wanting to share the spoils comment, Arnav confronts her in the only way he knows...But she expects it...Doesn't care for it! He asks...threatens...SHE DOESN'T BACK DOWN! He wants to win, he was with her to win! He says he did her a favor! What was in it for her? She says why does it matter? If its just an obligation, why should does her answer matter!? This might as well be a blanket statement on their marriage...He married her to get the upperhand on the snake, but she doesn't feel any obligation to him! She knows him so well...tells him to break something...BECAUSE THIS TIME SHE WON'T ALLOW HIM TO BREAK HER! Today, Khushi embodied the HATE, while Arnav embodied PASSION...I thought this was very interesting...The greenroom and Sanaya are made for each other...She has nailed every scene in that room, yaar! Yes, today she was STUPENDOUS!
Yes she was just amazingly brilliant haha, totally greenroom and Sanaya were made for each other I would hv been floating in the clouds - if the CVs would hv gifted us two epis of the Angry Birds only in the greenroom - i am sure I would have crossed all the levels
I could see the small matchbox space explode in flame - so now we shift the scene today to the pool side - so the burning inferno can be extinguished by the pool side water
Loved ur line of Hate and Passion - thats wat is the summary of the show and thats wat make us love it more - if ppl dont understand that message and see the layers and the build up to it, they'll always find ways to not be happy about the show - its how this story is gonna unfold...its never ever gonna be a easy rosy path of romance - this is now way Nicholas Sparks
and somehow the green room scene played out the lines of their coming-out song - how perfectly the CVs had chose this song !!!
Teri Meri, meri teri Prem kahaani hai mushkil
Do lafzon mein yeh bayaan na ho paaye !!!
Khushi's moment with the snake & Anjali...yep, the triangle has started to take shape...For the first time, she gives him absolutely NO OPPORTUNITY to get away with the last word...He makes it so obvious what his intentions are...Yes, DISGUSTING is an understatement when it comes to him...Today, in a public place, in front of witnesses, Khushi reminds him of WHO he is to her...and to WHOM he belongs! Your description of the chemist's scene with Shyam was perfect...The chemist's expressions mirrors the audience's...Shocked and disgusted by Shyam's audacity!
I saw a glimpse of the precap...suffice it to say, it will be the trigger shot...but will it be enough? Khushi is ON FIRE & I want her to take this further! Its the only way...it really is her moment now...CVs, please DON'T BLOW it!
Rating: 4/5...Would have liked a longer ArHi scene to be honest...even though its to be continued, I felt it ended a bit too abruptly...Shoddy editing too (at least as it appeared online!) Anjali, the swooning, phone call to snake & the need for meds was not convincing for me! Something tells me the medical 'emergency' was by design...way too contrived!
