BTW, SMJ's replacement is a show called  - Lakhon Mein Ek -- fictionalised accounts of good human beings. Watched the first episode, a woman who raises abandoned children (mostly girls) and becomes their mother and provider. It was too cheesy, but I sort of found myself warming up to it nonetheless.

What a trump card played by the CVs in the form of Daadi Mallick!  Killing many many birds with one mean-looking stone. 
  1. Bring the past back into the present.  What better way to do it than to actually resurrect a key player. 
  2. Make the s#$% really and truly hit the fan.  I allude to the white elephant called Shyam Manohar Jha.  No one's talking about the dude.  Well, they have to now.  And pick a side as well. 
  3. Bring said white elephant and the DHV back into the show.  It is now clear that Anjali's emotional blackmail would not have sufficed to achieve this.  Enter Daadiji. 
  4. Lay out the ASR RTR.  All the proponents of "actions louder than words" can rejoice, because that's what this will be about apparently.  
  5. Pave the way to the mandap for Arhi remarriage.  If we couldn't see the need for a shaadi 360 until now, one just showed up at the door of RM, chataai and peetal bartans in tow.
  6.  Manorama-Payal lacking in the saas-bahu quotient of paramount importance in a SP show?  Why fear when a maha-saas is now here.  Let's all worship at the altar of the TRP meters.
While I'm not happy with the way dadiji was introduced today -it was a bit OTT for me -this track definitely promises to be fun as long as Khushi doesn't play the mute bechaari nari she did today. 
What's more, Swati Chitnis seems to be a fabulous actress and suits her role to a T. 
Front front see...bhat bhat happens! 


Manisha, great post! Khushi will take the insults thrown her way, that's a given it will be ASR who is her voice while she tries to win Dadi over.

Mandy, I don't expect Khushi to turn into a Jhansi ki rani here.  This is Arnav's family and she always treads super carefully.  But it's unlike her to not say a word -she was weird today.

Rabba Ve Masala Ladkis

Long, mind numbing, exhausting day and I almost skipped the episode and the hangout ... but I guess I guess yeh meri aadat hai. Tongue Mohabbat for the isspice girls drew me in! Hug


Phew... high voltage drama! For all of us who wanted a back isstory be careful what you wish for, coz you just might get it. Dead How hard was it to watch daadi take her shot at the show's fave punching bag! Cry  Every kind of prejudice was on display - social class, caste... The hardest thing for me was not that it shown (although that was awfully hard!) but that it drove home the fact that it is a reflection of asli duniya. Sure the dramatic quotient was amped up but not by that much - unfortunately. Unhappy


India does live in many centuries and people like daadi are very much part of one of those centuries. It's just that all of us here have made the time leap and don't want any part of that social structure or those value systems. It is offensive to us, but it IS very much a reality for many. Ouch


I take little comfort from the fact that daadi will likely see the error of her ways or that Arnav bitua will now take up cudgels on patni's behalf. Nothing about this segment will be easy or feel fulfilling! Those among us who wanted ArHi to stand together and solve problems ---- that wish may be coming true but at what cost? Those who wanted redemption, we may get a double bonanza (NOT!) - daadi and grandson both wallowing in their sins. Again, wish coming true but at what cost? Ouch


From today's precap it seems likely that daadi will play catalyst for shaadi 360. That piece doesn't really bother me... if that is what it will take for the daadis of the world to accept Khushi as a bahu, Arnav bitua owes it to her.


Between the two of them, do they really need another wedding - public or private? Does Khushi? The mangalsutra and the sindhoor are but symbols. If Arnav can show Khushi that it's not how you start the journey but how you finish it that counts, then isn't that all that matters? If he shows her that no matter how she came to wear her sindhoor and magalsutra, now she  wears  them for the right reasons, isn't that all that matters? While she wrings her hands over the contract and what Di needs, if she realizes that it's not whether they can live with each other but whether can they live without that is important ... then everything else is just gravy, trim, trappings... nice to have, not need to have. 


At any rate Subhadra Malik brings with her a boatload of kostins... what, when, why, how? For now I'm a little too heart weary to speculate, it is day 1 and I'll wait to see how it plays out. Vinamr nivedan to the CVs --- peeleejh do not crush our spirit for too long in the crazy gold rush for TRPs. One thing seems sure we're going to find out that ASR is a chip off the old block, the apple does not fall far from the tree... and so on. For no matter how much daadiji hurt Khushi today, ASR has done far, far worse to her. If we survived that I guess we can survive this. 


Oh and hat tip on Day 1 for the actress playing daadi - she was PITCH PERFECT! Thumbs UpThumbs Up

Acha? phir to dekhay ka padi! BTW - AK was the most annoying thing about SMJ :D I loved all the discussions and guests but had wished for him to shut up or just disappear from the screen.

Manisha: really liked your post. The CV's sure know how to catch our attention. Though at times they fumble to set the mood right. In this case, thats what happened, they caught our attention but ruined our mood.

I just wanted to say this, there is NOTHING wrong that Daadi mistakes Khushi for a maid. Lots of maids are really well turned out and it is an honest mistake that one can make. For example, when new people visit my house and see our really attractive and neatly dressed maid, they are often confused wondering who she is. And very routinely my dad does look like Ramu Kaaka. Nothing wrong with that. (Plus, maids are awesome. My mom will vouch for that) I was okay about Daadi mistaking Khushi for a maid and I didn't care much for the 'OMG how dare she call her a maid' (not to delve too much into that, but those reactions are what I found offensive)

But I have to say, I was still unhappy with Daadi. Even though I get the intent for bringing her in (drama --->> TRPs) and provide greater insight into why Arnav is such an ASR. I also get it that I am indulging in a knee-jerk reaction, but lets just that I have very little tolerance for casteist, classist saas-drama. Yes, I understand that such things happen in the real world (the newspapers tell me about how certain people cannot enter the inner sanctum of temples etc), I get that, but I still don't see why I need to see it. Perhaps I don't understand religion really, having been raised by rationalist parents and being a product of mixed faith, where everything goes and there are no 'purity zones' in our house. So I am just frustrated seeing this in a love story.

Though to be fair to Dadi, even Nani in her early days was pretty douchey. Ya, she loved Khushi and thought of her as 'aapan umra ki ladkiyon se bahut aage' ' which was only because Khushi fitted into her definition of good Indian girls ' you know, Indian attire, tied up hair and who could tell her festivals apart. She hated La, who was a 'working-woman who liked to party' (*gasp*). But today Naani has thawed and tomorrow Daadi will too ' but the question still remains, do means justify the ends. But this is the same show, where to bring the truth about the marriage the girl had to seriously contemplate suicide. So yeah, anything goes. I have also concluded that I don't like matriarch type characters on TV shows. They always make sure that patriarchy wins. Irony much.

BTW, as someone who watches the competition show on occasion (go ahead and judge me), which while having a super regressive premise, is actually a pretty progressive (albeit boring) show. The matriarch character there, is a meanie too, but is also simultaneously badass. TV and the world at large, needs more badass women :D

Thanks Sari for your post. Some of us were waiting for us it right after the episode so that we could calm ourselves down. (though, birthday girl Ippy did her very best to keep the mood upbeat :D)

PS: Given all the Ramayana references, what are the chances that Daadi is going to be the chastity demanding Dhobi?

What a post Ragini. Amazing as usual. 

Dadi and Dhobi ROFL Today she made bhabhi as dhobhi and you are making Ramayana reference and making her Dhobi? Good one. 

Regarding cast/religion, though some of us don't believe in it (and get really frustrated when we have to fill those sections in a random application), may be there are people who strongly believe in it. But the problem is it doesn't suit IPK context. If the story's setting is in a village and the script demands it, then yes. It makes sense. They have to show that even though cities and people in cities have a different life style, it remains the same in village. And a change has to be brought. 

But I really don't understand how can this fit in IPK context where the owner of the house lives in Delhi and has studied abroad. People like us have chosen this serial for a love story and why do we need to see this cast/aukat thing. May be there are people who want to see matriarch type characters and they have options. But I am confused about such characters in a love story. 

And speaking about badass women, there is none in IPK. There are only badass men - ASR (in words) and Shyam (in action). 

And finally, your mom is so right. Maids are definitely awesome. They are better than any DADI/NANI/DIDI/MAMI combined even when they do "OOO la la"

Umm. I have no clue what or who you are alluding to. It is like a serial.
