My analysis of the Aug14th epi:
Janmashtami dance with breaking of the matki: hurriedly done but nice
Addu-Papaji-Jiji-Saroj convo : Addu made it clear to them that he did not want to accept Mohan as his new Papa and not to force him to do so. Good expressions from everyone. But no indication of Papaji-Saroj-Jiji's on what they would do next. Was this scene intended to just inform them of Addu's intentions? And that they are supposed to just stay on the sidelines and see what happens next? Confusing
Mohan-Megha phone convo from work: I would have expected to have seen some teasing of Mohan by the team members - Dimpy, Karan and others - to have him narrate how he feels about his married life. Nothing like that happened. Audience simply get to know Mohan is back to work.
Mohan-Riddhima: Unnecessary and waste. If Riddhi's only intention was to inform Mohan that she was leaving the town, then she could have done that over the phone. Her intention of physically coming over to Mohan's work place is unclear. Writers need to scrap this chapter as soon as possible. Its now dragging along too much.
Nanhi - Renu : Again a waste. How did Nanhi get hold of the file containing the divorce papers? Megha had kept the file on one of the upper shelves. Did not make sense and why to unnecessarily spoil Mohan's character infront of the Vyas family? I hope the writers do not intend to do that. If so, then why bring in an uncomfortable feel to the audience? Useless.
Sanjay-Renu: Good to see the resistance from Sanjay. Renu, the witch, sure does have good acting skills.
: Refrigerator scene was good. Nothing spectacular though. Getting to know more about Mohan's money skills. Does not make sense then why does he feel so confident that he can take care of the kids if he does not have any savings.
Mohan-Addu: Hair cut scene was hillarious. Writers could have included the bike ride - Mohan taking Addu on his bike.
Overall: Lackluster epi. Writers are putting too much focus on other characters of the show rather than focus on MM life. So far, we have not seen any Nanhi-Mohan convo - feels like ever since the marriage happened, Nanhi has gone into oblivion. There should be much more of Nanhi and Mohan, now that they are under the same roof. There should be more of Mohan and Megha togetherness. After the kids leave for school, what are they doing? There has been no MM one-on-one convo. Mohan had taken timeoff from work, so what did he do during his vacation time? Audience did not see any of that.
Conclusion: So far, the epis lack continuity. Alot of things seem to happen at the same time. Primary focus, at least, for the initial few weeks should be on MM life and the kids. How they are adjusting and getting used to one another in the single room house of Mohan. I hope the writers can focus on a single subject and improve the continuity. Something to learn from Balika Vadhu.
