Was dismayed to listen to Komal's loudmouthed screeching in the hospital, I bet the entire staff could hear the conversation between her and the parents of Abhimanyu. So, while their young strapping son fights for his life as the result of poison coursing through his bloodstream, SS and shakuntala get to listen to the world's longest speech on how Shakuntala is a bad human being who trapped her weak father. I see, so basically a woman who happens to be beautiful, young and has never left her parents' village is somehow trying to trap the well-traveled and much older Sajjan Singh. Because all men are stupid in the face of such beauty, right? That's a convenient explanation for Komal to adopt, and she does it well. But if the girl wasn't there, she doesn't know the whole story. And if SS did choose to be with her, if he wasn't happy with Amma for whatever reason, then it is both their fault not just Shakuntala as Prats rightly pointed out.
Komal herself is someone's mother, her husband was killed not long ago, so she knows what it means to raise a child by herself but she forgets this easily when he goes to the hospital. All of the Saxena's influence on her, the culinary skills, the better fashion sense, the good manners go out the window because Komal needs to teach Chukti Amma a lesson. Did anyone notice that the girl had time to make a scene in the hospital, call Shakti and tell him the results of the conversation, but not enough time to call home and check on her daughter? Because that would actually mean she was doing her duty as a mom. Instead of letting Chinky run into the front yard and look for some random man to be her father. Komal's daughter has grandparents, a mother, uncles, and aunts but no dad. Yet somehow Komal Saxena now feels the right to judge someone who also has no dad and wants one. What is the difference between Komal's daughter and Abhimanyu, aside from a couple years? They both feel the absence of a parent and would do anything to get one.
Back to the hospital, I highly doubt any of the patients got any rest with Krishna taking over the fight after Komal. The way she cut into Shakuntala was cold-blooded and mean. She doesn't even live in the haveli any more but once a Thakur always a Thakur. Shakuntala did not once speak up in her and her son's defense, nor did she ignore the only daughter of Sajjan Singh. Komal has never suffered anything in her life, apart from losing her husband, she wouldn't understand someone else's pain. As for calling Shakuntala low class, she would probably know firsthand. She gave the Saxenas hell in their own house and they couldn't stand her when she first arrived in the maika. It wasn't that long ago that she couldn't behave like a lady and Krishna had to tell her to try and learn something from her husband and his family. She acts like a blue blood, but the difference is actual blue bloods can read and write. And they don't start world-class scenes in hospitals where sick people are being treated for serious ailments.
Krishna gets there and of course, he is even louder than his sister. I can understand why Baba would feel threatened. He is the favorite son of SS and now his life is changed forever by his father. It's humiliating for him to call brother someone who has made his life so unpleasant, someone who has moved into his house. What about Pratigya, was it not hard for her to accept him as husband after he forced her to marry him? If he for one second thinks that it's their dishonor to accept the simple-minded lawyer and his pious mother, how does he think the Saxena family felt about him and his family when the show first started? Money can buy a lot of things, but it can't buy class. and it can't buy the respect of people that count. It is somehow ironic that Krishna has saved Prats from poison when she followed him, and now he is saving Abhimanyu's life too. Both Prats and Abhimanyu had to fall victim to wild animals. The bargain Krishna made with Abhimanyu's mother was clever on his part. Of course, if he had let Abhimanyu die I don't think SS would have forgiven him. And the cvs did it smartly by making Krishna have O positive type and not Pratigya who would have given it by the liter if it meant saving a life. Makes it more dramatic.
The scene with Shakti and the coach was disgusting. Shakti couldn't just let his brother beat the guy in wrestling and then make him leave, he had to interfere. Abhimanyu could have filed a case against him for attempted murder, but Shakti can't appreciate that as he is so obsessed with being right. But once Prats has told SS who is behind the accident, the expression on his face tells me Shakti will be the one who needs to run.
Before I forget to add, Abhimanyu looked incredibly hot just lying there in his bed. Even though he had no lines, the man was gorgeous. I envy the nurses who get to enter his room.
Kesar and Piasiya trying to clean up the haveli from the presence of the servants was pathetic. If anything, the haveli needs cleaning up from all of their impure behavior. Kesar, why dont you clean up the bedroom which we all know has seen a lot of women outside the family? Who knows if Shakti has conceived any children out of wedlock, it's not like those women would go tell him. She should also clean Shakti's mouth which gives gaalis on a daily basis to all who come to the haveli. It was a mock exercise to retrieve some dignity after SS has given it all to his former mistress and her son. Again, I noticed Samar is nowhere to be seen.
Again, I am not saying the Thakur children have no right to be angry with Abhimanyu, SS, and Shakuntala. However, Abhimanyu just wanted his father's acceptance as Prats pointed out. Everything he ever did since he came on the show has been towards this goal. Had SS not hesitated, then maybe he wouldn't have gotten beaten, poisoned, and then rushed to the hospital. And Krishna's threatening an unconscious man does not exactly reflect well on his character. no matter what his excuse.
