I was actually pleasantly surprised with yesterday's episode as I wrote in the discussion thread.
I am glad they sorted this thing quickly.
Yes, Akshat was trying to avoid confrontation (which happened anyway with his mom behaving like a 5 yr old throwing a tantrum)...but then there was only so much he could take and he blurted out his true feelings...he's impulsive like that. But everything he said, he felt, and he spoke from the heart and I think his relationship with his parents is such that they were able to see immediately that he was totally serious. Add to this Angad's exhortation that they support Akshat.
So I think it was natural for them to go to the chawl immediately to make amends for their behavior. Really liked how Akshat's mother said, "humse...nahin, mujhse bhool hui hai..."
She took responsibility for her rude behavior...
I think this is how mature people behave...I found this totally realistic.
Compare this with Samir's parents...which I also found realistic. It took Samir's suicide attempt to make them realize they should support their son...they were more controlling.
Akshat-Angad's parents have brought up their sons to follow their dreams (as Angad mentioned)...so while it was human for the mother to want "better" for her son (doesn't excuse her outrageous behavior), it was then also natural for her to get back to her position of wanting to see her son happy, no matter what. What really impressed me was her willingness to apologize...
To me, dragging this would have been like any run-of-the-mill soap...So I am really glad they sorted it.
