Aarthi, before reading your fast and lovely post and before watching the epi, following is what me posted on Shelly's thread, dunno if you got a chance to read it ...
Excellent post as always and you have presented your views, pros and cons beautifully with your word-power! All the other posts are right on too!
However, I'm with Arthi as far as Adi-Sugni situation is concerned. While the board here is going gaga in favor and against over the eyelock, to me it appeared just a PASSING moment because Sugni just happened to fall and he held her from falling, followed by a STRONG remark that (paraphrasing) ~ "those who try to fly, get hurt very badly when they fall" ... of course expressing his disapproval and displeasure about Mamaji-Sugni love. That in no way means CVs are trying to pursue the original story of this young couple, esp when TVS/Sugni relationship has come this far and so strong and majority of us loving every moment of their togetherness.
Yes, many questions and confusion are rampant about Riwa, her mental conditon and why in all these years TV did not think of getting out of such an unhappy unpleasant situation and divorce her. All I can imagine based on the kind of person we have known Vikram to be all along, is that he is a kind, caring, lovable, subdued person and just stayed in the marriage for her sake and hopefully to get her out of her mental miseries, rather than take the easy way out and leave her in lurch.
So cant say if SugVi marriage will happen without a divorce, although dont rule out that possibility either. CVs are capable of twisting storylines any which way to move the story forward. And who knows some other facet or track may come along in favor of Gulabiya and her Vachan about no marriage on Teej may just come true. In fact, that's what I would love to see happen and it's my prediction too that marriage WILL TAKE PLACE but NOT NOT sooo soon into the serial. Many bottlenecks, objections, obstacles have to come in SugVi love path by TJS, panchayat, jiji, daima, to keep our interest, curiosity, expectations alive and vibrant, albeit full of confusion
BTW yesterday's stares between Vikram and G were noteworthy too, as if each challenging the other, while at the same time we see this face of Vikram trying to manipulate the poor family to meet all their NEEDS, and implying thru his eye language, contortions to G ~ see, how I'm succeeding in my iraade, intentions, and G left perplexed by everyone, ie Sugni, Naganiya mami interrupting her, and all this making Vikram feel victorious already.
To add to all our uncertainties, now the new twist of Sugni staying at the haveli today to "watch over" Kuhu may be yet another dimension by CVs and yet another masala may be getting ready to be simmered when she gets there. Me glad though that this is not TVS "planning", or is it? BTW wondering where the heck is wretched dhanuma? Has she conveniently disappeared, or with Riwa, so that Sugni gets the chance to be at the haveli ??
So lot of rigmarole in place to keep us hooked and bewildered
And as you say, you dont know where this is going ... is precisely where CVs have planned to put their viewers, on edge and confused.
Just my 5C!
AFTER WATCHING THE EPI ... .
Now about Adi-Sugni eyelock ... If anything, there was surprise (not attraction ... geez) in Sugni's eyes coz to her Adi is nothing but SADU THAKUR ! And she has too much respect and love for her thakur maalik to betray it. The whole Adi-Sugni jodi is preposterous to say the least.
And like the few posts already, I was beside myself too! Blushing and my eyes glued to the computer screen watching at the ROMANCE in TVS eyes, body language, adaayein ... My My My !!! TVS can be such a HUGE charmer and a flirt and knows EXACTLY how to entice an innocent girl in his chungal mein so that she dances to his every tune just the way he wants! I personally enjoyed every moment of that Sugni ka sharmana and Vikram ka "khelna" and piercing nazaron ke teer se Sugni ko ghaayal karna, by using kurte ke button pretext !
On the other hand, as somebody said, Mai is going to make a fool of herself yet again by entering the haveli and shouting. Obviously she is doubting her own parvarish of her daughter, coz as we saw, Sugni KNOWS her boundries and under no circumstances she will cross them, and perhaps neither will TVS as he respects his Sugni's feelings too much, esp when she made it abundantly clear to him.
