Hi All wonderful girls,
A Huge Sigh of Relief , The tense frown replaced by a beatific smile on my face [ as I watched the episode ] ... There I was terribly scared that , Lo ASR chala Majnu Banne and Today They showed ASR bhi Majnu Banega but apne andaz Main ... A episode which was reminiscent of the Past as the director took us to the past and lead us on a pleasurable stroll of the significant events ...An episode which had the magic of IP , which sizzled n kept us completely in its thrall ..The passion could have steamed up that coffee and Tea generously shared by the couples ..
It was a episode that showed that the present cloud of depression is ending but it also hinted at the upcoming cloud of darkness ..
Khushi is intent on mending the fences between her sister and Akash ...With no other thoughts running in her mind , over riding her sisters strictures , Khushi heads to Akash's room and begins to spill the beans ...but before she complete her mission she is spotted by Payal, who stops Khushi, takes her away from Akash and chides Khushi for not being obedient to her Jeeji's wishes , before Khushi can even come.. The siblings are joined by Maami who showers them with her own brand of Tender Loving care , She is fortunately stopped by Nani who reminds Mami that Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu thi and Bahu's duty was to keep the family united which is what the sisters were following to the T...
I had in my y'day's post had mentioned that Akash is undergoing a revival Meaning that he is coming back to the sane , balanced man ... we saw further hints for that in today's episode ... Notice that Akash has finally opened the doors wide open , Khushi then begins to fill him with details about Shyam, There will be a tightness about his face as he listens to the tumbling words of Khushi and his face , the tension slackens when he hears that PAYAL HAD EVERY INTENTION OF TELLING HIM THE TRUTH BUT AMMA ... So he finally had his answer to why Payal was quiet, had to stay quiet ... This will go a long way in soothing Akash but Akash being Akash , he will take it slowly and cautiously ...
The next moment of interest is when Payal drags Khushi and is trying to get Khushi to understand and appreciate the meaning of 'NON - INTERFERENCE ' when Mami interferes in their squabble , offering her own unwanted pearls of wisdom .. I loved the fact that Mami has still not forgiven the Gupta sisters, it shows the love and affection that she has for the Orphaned children, It is quite natural for a mother to feel murderous against the perps who made her kinder's life miserable , ..Maami was being that Mother and was totally partial to her child's well being while ignoring the fact that the children's of another Mother might and could have had another strong reason for the silence !! ..
Nani ... A aging Banyan Tree, One who has witnessed many storms, who has weathered through many a storm, has taken many a blows and has seen many tragedies happening in her life ...Nani who has the equanimity to see the truth, has the patience and understanding of all People.. Nani it is who steps into the breach and rebukes Manorama for her unjustified outburst , we find that Nani does not hold the Gupta sisters responsible But it is Damadji that she finds responsible ...Now here is the interesting conundrum ... When Nani said that It is all bec of DamadJi !! ...Which Damadji did she mean ?? Anjali's Husband or Anjali's Father !!
Khushi is drinking Tea when she sees Anjali stepping out of her room, Nani's words still being fresh in her mind , Khushi dutifully steps away from the vision line of Anjali, goes into her own room, still carrying the cup of chai in her hand...Khushi places the Chai on the table, opens the closet and is stunned !! For there perched amongst all her gaudy dresses , amongst the swirl of bright colors is her prince charming giving her one of his endearing smile , smile enuff to melt one's heart , a lovely smile that instantly evokes a answering smile from the other, invoking a chord that reminds her of the previous encounter ... but the smile is quickly checked as Khushi remembers that she still is the angry wife, She valiantly curbs her growing smile , turns her back .. Arnav jumps out , asks her with a smile whether it brings any incident to her memory, Khushi being the consummate imp lies barefacedly saying that Hmm-mmm She does not have even a teeniest memory of what is burned in her heart, Undeterred , A nonchalant Arnav picks up his coffee Mug and splashes it on her face unrepentantly asking 'AB' .. A spluttering Khushi who very well remembers THIS incident since she was the one who threw the Tea in the first glares ferociously at Arnav, turns her back and wants to stalk away from him but her lord and master whose tolerance level was always low will not have it, with clenched teeth grabs her hand, begins the ABCD of being the loving ASR when the voice of NKBC [ Nand Kishore Broadcasting Service ] echoes in ASR's mind , he swallows his anger, turns the taps on charm again and becomes Arnav ...The Lambkin Khushi not knowing any better , snatches her hand away, provokes the sleeping Tiger in him and tries to make a dash for it , The Tiger provoked beyond measure , grabs th fluffy Rabbit again , twirls her towards him, crushes her onto his lean , hard frame promising her a lesson on what he can do, the smile seductive , as he casually , languidly pulls the hair and places his hands on the dori, initiating the memories of their first encounter, triggering runaway emotions in Khushi, A Khushi who recognizes the dangers of being placed in such a situation, her disobedient body reacting to the caress of his finger tips , her emotions betraying her as anger and desire fight for supremacy !!..Anger wins, she pushes him away, pours the Tea on to his face and scowls at him, proving to him that she too is a kitten with claws.. The Tiger is fully provoked , Gone is the restraint as ASR seizes Khushi and pulls him towards her, dashing her hard against him..Khushi clings to him like a creeper that has clung to a tall, strong tree , the silent war of will continues as they continue their battle through their eyes, Khushi's eyes is the first to fall , unable to face the fiery passion of Arnav , Khushi hisses out that Arnav is transgressing his limits , Arnav bites out that he can cross his limits as she is HIS WIFE !!.. Khushi tries to puncture this assertion by telling tartly that she does not recognize him as her Husband !!.. That is like a red cloth to a raging Bull, A Bull moreover in the throes of passion, picking up the gauntlet , Arnav swears to get her to accept him as her husband !! Being the perfect gentleman, he seeks to stamp the new challenge with a kiss .. His eyes drinking her in , he moves for the kill ,,,,Khushi, A quivering Khushi who is getting very much drawn in to his seduction, who is being lost in the fires of emotion is slowly but surely melting ...The wife in her wanting to be in his arms while the woman in her does not want to be subjugated ... But it is a losing battle as Khushi begins to drown in the pool of love, desire WHEN interruption comes in the form of HP !!
AHHH !! That was my feelings as I saw this segment ..Two hot headed Individuals, passionate, loving , crazily in love with one another but equally determined to give rough ride to one another ... fighting , squabbling, arguing and enjoying every moment of it ...ASR was ASR and yet the man in love who had no qualms in expressing his love, that he never cared for anyone and lived the moment on his terms was underscored when he refused to let go of Khushi even when HP came and knocked on the OPEN DOORS !!
This was a scene where both Barun and Sanaya excelled ..The voice modulations and the way his eyes changed expression and the subtle changes in Khushi's demenor by Sanaya ..both fed of each other and we the viewer's were the winners ... Shwethu , OK, I accept ur Arshad does wonders with Love scenes !!
One thing I always have liked about IP was the subtle touches they bring in ...here too there was a subtlety... Tea is a homegrown plant and is much preferred by the poor/middle class in India as the cost is less in comparison to coffee bean .. a drink which only the hoi polli could afford in the earlier times ... Although things has changed now..it has been fixed in the minds of ppl that Tea is poor man's drink while Coffee is for upper class.. today it was highlighted wonderfully well ..Appreciate it much..
The scene in the hall ..the two standing like 2 recalcitrant student caught doing something forbidden , awaiting the sentence , looking guilty but unrepentant ..Loved it
EN Guard !! The fencing starts between the two duelists as each fence one another , the sparring laced with love, the wounds their mark of love as Khushi challenges, Arnav accepts, Arnav dares, Khushi accepts.. as each want the other to surrender but both wanting to surrender too..such is the logic of Love !! ... Previously Arnav had corralled Khushi in the bedroom secure in the knowledge that there was no one at home but not now, now he does not give a damn and has no scruples cos for him she is HIS wife ..No Matter what and if Lil wifey is playing hard to get, then he will enjoy the hunt and bring her to heel too ...The Hunter is on the prowl ladies, Beware Khushi , He will stalk you, silently, his eyes shooting arrows of love, ardor, passion, crippling you, maiming you ...he will not rest until U surrender completely but YOU, YOU Khushi are wind...can wind be contained ?? NO ..So this promises to be a battle of eternity where The Mighty Hunter will always be engaged in taming the untamable spirit ...He does not realize that the untamed spirit will bow down to you when u learn humility, when u learn to be open ... Arnav has begun to take the baby steps towards that and I am sure the unconquerable spirit will surrender itself not in front of his ego but in front of his unconditional Love !!
Anjali, A woman who is slowly stirring out of the shell, who is again beginning to take the steps this time with her brother for a crutch ..not entirely dependednt on him but not yet free too .. A lovely camera work here .. I just loved it ..Anjali is adorning herself in front of the mirror, the photo of Shyam-Anjali displayed prominently on the wall ,projecting that she still is rooted to her past but slowly gradually she is walking towards Arnav...but the intriguing thing is she is poised equidistant between Arnav and Shyam ...which way will she lean ??..
Arnav has got the green signal to go to Agra , He enters his room , packing his things together when Khushi arrives bringing colors .. Arnav who has never bothered to keep anyone informed about his movements before now voluntarily discloses to Khushi that he is leaving for Agra ...Khushi refuses to accompany him and says that she has to cleanse everything ...Arnav leaves after wisecracking about her mental faculties... A livid Khushi vows not to go into his arms, accept him as her hubby ...but fate has other plans ...Night dawns !! All things that Khushi fears, darkness, aloneness, Thunder comes with the express purpose of scaring her ...
TAJ MAHAL !! Ahh.. The word coined here in this Very Redux for the Swimming Pool !! and today we heard Khushi mention that standing by the Pool...dil ko sukoon Mila as was the fact we got the Green Shirt !! * Ab Green Kiska Fav hai sabko pata Hai **
For all the Wonderful Girls who are anxious to know about Doods and her Thoughts ;
Doods will be on every Alternate day
first the episode and now your post... my smile that has been plastered on my face since last night just grew wider
see everything is getting back to its original punch... IPK... Redux... with you back to writing and Doods coming back... everyday a new writer on this thread... the Redux parivar growing... aur kya chahiye...
btw. loved your analogy of tea and coffee... in a way when they splashed their drink over each other... it almost felt like ..." ek doosre ke rang mein rang gaye..."
Aww yanka ,
Thankss Yaara... May the Parivar grow and May it always grow under the shade of love, openness and May the shadows of Dishonesty, deceit stay away from it !!
Ek doosre ke rang main is very apt , it also reminded me of Bridal bath one undergoes before marriage..
