kaari tori akhiyaan yaad karuun

jhuuthii-muuthi mitava aavan bole
Overall I liked this episode .. Why.. was there a continuation to the MU track ?? No !!...Was there an escalation of Shyam's advances ? No !! ...Are the family getting progressively involved in Arnav- Khushi's life acting as tie breakers?? NO !!..In short the much touted plot stayed where it was ..But It moved smoothly and softly in another arena ...The Redux members would be aware that Y'days Redux contained very gloomy posts lamenting the non movement of track and I too agreed with the general consensus , then when I was doing the read up of all the posts..My eyes fell on the post written by Payasa !! ..Her post gave quite a different perspective to look at this show and it is thanxx to her I am looking from that perspective and realizing that IP has not gone anywhere , it is alive and well but is deepening the track for better effect ...so what did Payasa say ..?? Payasa said that the current track is two fold..One is the increasing of the MU [obvious] the other is probing the makeup of characters ... I really feel like banging my head over this cos I had pompously said we got the first brick in what makes ASR in a post which had dealt with his ego ..and here I am overcome with Duffer tendency lamenting the lack of movement when they are slowly peeling the layers and showing what made chotte into Arnav Singh Raizada, the past serving to show the expected reactions to the aftermath !!
Arnav singh Raizada sleeps on his king size bed, his eyes fastened on the clock as he impatiently awaits the arrival of Khushi..Khushi comes in reluctantly , admonishing Laxmi to be quiet and sending her off for the night ..Khushi watches Arnav sleeping for a while , slowly walks away taking care not to disturb him.. she goes to her side of the bed, closes her eyes, while Arnav slowly turns around like a sunflower following the sun, looks at her slleing form , closes his eyes in contentment and falls asleep..Khushi too has her fill of devouring him by sight and closes her eyes, Her eyes and memory holding on to the last image that of Arnav sleeping like a kid..Lies !! All
lies, the so called anger,disgust, contempt all lies for prowling
underneath this deceptive overt hatred is one shining truth, awaiting
its chance to pounce on this unwary players is a alien and
diametrically opposite emotion called LOVE !! ..
Habits once acquired is very hard to give up, both have become each others drug ,addicted to one another's thoughts, actions, foibles much though they may deny, each have created a niche in one another's heart ..a heart which becomes a void when it is not filled with their presence ...both are happy when they see each other, when they are together ..
I loved the troubled guilty expression of Barun when he overhears the reason for Khushi's dawn to dusk workaholic behavior and the way his eyes softens when he watches Khushi sleeping !!
The next day dawn with the sound of Dhabba falling acting as the pleasant wakeup call for the Raizada Arnav ..He dresses up , gets ready to leave for his office when Anjali gives him the Prasad , and some advice freely..Prasad is accepted , Advice is discarded ..Arnav leaves for his office ..Anjali realizes that the advice shud be given to one who understands the value of it and goes in search of Khushi..Anjali gives Khushi a peek into chotte a boy, reserved, sensitive, angry, caring ...If Anjali expected Khushi to thaw after this, then Boy was she wrong cos Khushi , the ever vigilant warrior gleefully realized that she has got Zeus thunder which she can use to aggravate Arnav further...
Almost everyone knows that Anjali is the main player in Khushi -Arnav life ..that she will be the bridge, connection but today she was shown as Janus, a sutradhar who has clear vision of the past and future .. who knows that to understand Arnav better, Khushi has to know Chotte well, what drives the present day Arnav, what made him into one ..Anjali it is who has placed this valuable hint on to Khushi's hand bec ANJALI UNDERSTANDS THAT KHUSHI WILL BE THE ONE WHO WILL GRASP THE MEANING IMMEDIATELY, FASTER THAN ARNAV ..
Another instance where we got to see Anjali is picking up on the vibes and realizing that Khushi is not really happy.. As is Anjali's nature, she may begin to worry and nag which may push Arnav into taking some action either to disprove Anjali's assumption or to confront Khushi leading to further throw of hints...but all that will be later...right now the fires are being stoked..
Anjali has given tips to win over Arnav's heart which even though redundant now will come into play later on as Khushi realizes that purity of his heart and seeks to win his love ...
In ARHI relationship it is not Nani but Anjali who is the God Fairy for she has picked up on the fact that Arnav and Khushi are not spending time together, is guiding Khushi in carving a place for herself in his heart and to drench him with her love..All of which Khushi has agreed to do and Khushi will do it but in her own inimitable style driving him nuts !!
Also loved the fact that Both Arnav and Khushi get the blessing of Dm via the interlocutor Anjali Kids see the truth easily sometimes when it is difficult for the adults to decrypt the obvious and are gulled by other factors ...This was a line that resonated from y'day ..Now will this kid come and point out the obvious to this two idiots giving them the much needed insight into one another and the poisonous circumstance...I hope so !! SAVE ME FROM SWA-MI !!Khushi starts her Mission to irritate Arnav with Love ..The intention is to pretend love , pester him with love , vex him with love , aggravate him with love but Love, That wild horse can never be reined in and it has the propensity to pop out when least expected , isn't it ...Here was Khushi fully determined to rouse the wrath of the sleeping Lion Arnav when a few flicks of his hair lying askew on his forehead sent her heart galloping, her eyes dreamy, her countenance softening ..Her hands move of their own volition to brush away his hair ..A span in time when true love brooks no opposition ...
Khushi begins her assault on Arnav's temper , a temper he holds on to with much difficulty as he realizes that Khushi has thrown away all his sober and staid clothes & replaced it with lurid colored one's ... Arnav is furious, boiling mad at her ...when Khushi judiciously decides not to take any more chances and beats a retreat under the guise of preparing the brekki ...The clumsy girl almost dashes against the strong wooden door and is halted from doing so by her concerned Swami ...It was That brief moment when love asserts itself despite the many hurdles put up on its way ...
Needless to say, this brief scene of love and care interspersed amongst the comedy was the best.. best bec it did not call attention to itself, best bec it seemed natural ..The look of intense happiness in Khushi when Arnav calls out , the softening of khushi's face when she sees Arnav ..
Also Liked that amidst the lurid color shirts, Arnav unerringly picks up the Red shaded one..the color denoting passion ..power!!Barun was at his best here as was Sanaya ..if the recliner scene had u grinning, then Barun's muttered, 'Zaroor kuch gadbad hai' sent one laughing and his exasperated .." Swami se acha Laad Gavarnar hi tha " was damn Good
The most intriguing part was Akash taking the keys with him ...somehow suggesting a lack of faith and trust between these two..PAYASh bond is a untested bond and with each of them guarding and holding on to their thoughts and always agreeing to what other says with their alphabets ..I would be interested to know how they will unfold when strife hits ... did not Shyam warn Shashi earlier on that Payal will be at RM under his control and that he has the power to make or break Payal's life... will we see that cming into play..Khushi's fears of Payal's life shattering turning true but the blow comes from another source named Shyam... Trust is a doubtful commodity in PAYASH life but Trust reigns supreme in Arnav-Khushi life..yes sometimes it does face its share of storms, tornadoes, Many a time it appears that they will succumb but have weathered out successfully so far and now Shyam awaits !!
NOTE TO CV's ;
I thought Anjali was infected by polio right from her childhood .. was she affected by polio or is she wearing braces due to some accident ..
** Haawt Air Pleej ** Yo CV's Payalia , the provincial Payalia gets to wear a night suit , a satin one, looks like a proper Business man's wife while Khushi sleeps in the same outfit she had worn all day or worse ..she wears the Gupta's night suits ......isn't she a tycoon's wife ??
I do know that Saathiya Saath Nibhaana is under scanner, applaud ur good heart in trying to promote another show, but bear in mind.. if u persist with no story, no movement in tracks, endless dragging and illogical twists, then u may find urself promoting ur show in another successful show...Don't take ur show its success for granted !!
If U want to maintain a surprise over the intro of a new character, maintain a buzz over it, create enuf curiosity so that the viewer's tune into ur show ..Then clamp down on ur news leaks !! had u kept the intro of the new character under wraps..the Net would have gone wild with its speculation and would have been driven to switch on just to watch the entrant..Missed chance !! & the spinoff from Beti B [ of bachchan khandan]..seriously !!
Bless you! You have enunciated every thought that I had in my head. I was not at all happy yesterday with the episode. Oh yes, it was very funny and I absolutely adored the expression on Barun's face while he waited on the lounger for his Khushi to arrive and sleep peacefully. Once he looked at her face, only then was he able to sleep peacefully..so adorable! . Same is the case with Khushi to a certain extent only though...why is that you think?
Loved a glimpse into Arnav's past. The rest of the episode was for me.. all about ARNAV and how he is holding on to his temper, his exasperation at Khushi's behaviour and all in all, Barun's acting. Just lovely. Aagyakaari Khushi did get on my nerves... especially when she enacted Gopi.. never seen that show but what the hell.. wasn't amused. Khushi's unconscious love for Arnav when she moves that flick of hair from his face and then.. coming back to her senses and ruffling it again.. hilarious! And MY GOD.. all that shuddh Hindi!
Arnav in red was like "phool khila hain" kaanto wala..
Yet to read Doods but I'm sure that post would also be worth standing ovation as yours is..
