Arnav Singh Raizada had captured himself in the shades of grey, restricting himself to the confines of the world where he wasn't just another ordinary person but cold, ruthless ruler. Today we saw Arnav Singh Raizada completely unleash himself from those bounds, and stepped out to breath. Today he embraced the miracles life brought along with it without questioning.
And it had been none other than 'love' to unlock the armor that caged his heart. The love, where be's fallen in so deep that he himself isn't able to defy its powers anymore!
The episode focused once again on the tides of relationships.
' Akash and Khushi: the two shared a friendly comfortable relationship with deep understand of each other since the beginning of the days
' Mami and Payal: the fear of inferiority complex was what had made her look for 'Miss India' daughter in law. Beside the personal grudges, she has a valid reason of despising her daughter in law's presence but is the reason complety justified?
' Arnav and Khushi: what had started out as hatred, has reached to a level of love. Frustration, Anger, Fear and insecurities.
' Anjali and Arnav: they had promised to be by each other's side through and through, but would their individual weaknesses and standing up for what they think is right would tear them apart for a brief period? Relationships, of any kind can always be mended but the healing scar never heals completely.
' Payal and Khushi: both had promised to live for each other and one still does. If it hadn't been for Payal, Khushi would have made herself disclose Shyam's nature in one way or another.
The episode started with Khushi confronting Akash over the truth. Her words emphasize 'why'. Akash unlike before is interested to know that why was 'he' excluded. But before the reason could be voiced out, Payal intervenes.
Mami walks in to taunt and Nani steps in to clarify the intentions of the girls!
Payal will be the one to finally put the last stitches to her relationship with Akash but it would be Khushi and Arnav to start the process of mending. They'll be the ones to bridge the relationship. I loved the positioning of characters in this particular scene. Nani standing before the Gupta Girls, standing with the truth and understanding their intentions. Akash in the same circle but a little apart, on another side and Mami who was out of the circle completely. Akash will accept the truth but like Mami, will give a benefit of doubt too. It will be from the sense of betrayal he had developed recently because Payal had failed to keep their promise.
Khushi enters the room and opens the closet door to see a patiently waiting Arnav sitting there. A flashback of a similar past incident floods her mind bring a soft smile on her face. Happy to be able to have a slight hint of smile Arnav jumps out.
Last time, Khushi had announced to leave Delhi for good to Arnav Singh Raizada which had resulted in pure restlessness for him. That was when Khushi had deliberately tried to run away but fate had pushed her back. By recreating the moment, he had once again showed Khushi that she can't run away. Whatever happens, in the end she's stuck with him.
The scene also made me think of the upcoming disclosure of truth in RM. it'll be Khushi opening the doors and Arnav stating the facts. The game designed by Arnav to throw Shyam Monohar Jha out of the house is still on, and it wouldn't be ending until the truth will unleash itself completely.
Each had preferred one drink to calm down their nerves. Tea and coffee. Tea, a symbol if love and an energizer representing strength is with Khushi and Coffee, enriched with compatibility is Arnav's. Both had thrown their preference at each other.
Arnav first, bounding her to himself then Khushi, providing him with strength. Nothing new in this. We've been witnessing this bond since past couple of episodes.
The scenario once again was a recreation of a glimpse from the past. The day when unknowingly Khushi had thought that Arnav had tried to pull her towards him and in return splashed 'HOT' tea on him, hurting him in the process.
The moment of the day! I have a habit of oogling at the screen during such moments and then realizing that it was Romance which is why I had to watch it again! And when that happens when I'm watching a movie, it isn't a bit funny!
Outraged at the fact that Khushi kumari had splashed the tea on him, ruining his freshly launderied shirt, he pulls her towards him. It had been their very first meeting where she had provoked him for his sister, causing him to rip the pearls apart. A symbol of innocence and purity was taken off by ASR and then started Khushi's painful journey. He was affected by her in the very first meeting, because no one knew what his weakest point was and the girl being nothing but a mere stranger had not just refused to answer his questions but also hit at his weakest point. The rage of her walking away like before had caused him to tighten his grip on her. It wasn't just rage but fear and insecurity of loosing her because this time, the weakest point is her. If he can't fulfill her wishes, then he considers himself nothing!
"Tumhare himat kaise hui, main tum se vast kar raha hoon!"
"abhi tou batameezi shru nahi ki."
"Aur bhi buhot kuch kar sakta hoon! Biwi ho tum mere! Legally wedded wife"
"tou kya hua? Manwa lete hain"
He has accepted Khushi to be his subconsciously a long long time back and now, he has accepted that with full authority and consciousness. It is no other person than him who can hold any rights over her. He reflected his possessiveness for her, his desperation to be with her and his fear to not loose her forever this time. This is why, unlike the previous time, he wasn't a least but guilty of coming close to her. He hadn't let her go when the servant knocked because unlike last time, this time not just he have his authority in her but authority in public's eye too. She is his and he would be protecting her, not leaving her stranded in middle of a deserted road!
The two walk down to their call, and are faced by an amused Nani who teases them. Nani is with Khushi, and she'll be the first one to pick that these two are the the building blocks for each other.
*Arnav reflects onto the fact that he has one again hurt her. Khushi's statement reflected duality. She was shoving it in his face that it doesn't matter and also saying that he need not apologize or regret, that she knows that it was unintentional and doesn't matter.
>>Also, it is not Arnav but Khushi realizing that Arnav might take in the latter and not to give that satisfaction, she blurts that she doesn't accept him!
Many were confused with what Khushi wants. Khushi is nothing but frustrated. There will come a time when Khushi like any normal person will break completely with the burdens she's carrying and then Arnav will be allowed to come in. It is the beginning of that point where she us beginning to get weary and tired resulting in her frustrated attitude. She's been holding in all a lot and Arnav not understanding the gravity, is frustrating her!
Khushi moves towards the stairs, towards the top taking Arnav along and building a strong relationship. She's stopped by Arnav who was a step ahead and they both stand on equal footing regaining balance in their relationship. Look at the irony over here. Till now Khushi had recognized whatever Arnav had done for her and commented in it and in return received the statement that isn't because of her and she should stop dreaming. Today Arnav reflected onto the same fact, making Khushi to ask him to 'Stop Dreaming!'
The challenge is ON!
NK's "iss war ko kya naam doon" was uttered from the top, with him standing behind the glass. He'll once again be the witness if the truth when unleashed completely, only this time he wouldn't be a part of it. It was today The call to the upcoming Warfield in RM.
Anjali who has been worn out with the shifted attention of her brother is happy to know that he had been with her all along! An indicator that with the truth out, Anjali will accept that her brother was there all along and that she'd failed to notice his attepts. She'll then once again be the one to push her brother towards his love.
Arnav enters The room informing Khushi that he'll be leaving to Agra and she should come along. She declines the offer and claims that she had seen Taj Mahal and rathet clean up. >>that she had witnessed the power of Arnav's love for her but she wouldn't proceed until the truth is cleared and normalacy settled in the atmosphere again. Thus, she states the facts over again and closes the door.
The seating arrangement in the car was the arrangement of people currently in Akash's life. Anjali, the top priority followed by His Dadi and Mother, placing his wife at the bottom. But there is hope rising again, and Akash will steadily come to face Payal as his top priority!
A well designed episode! Kudos to the whole team for putting in such effort!
