FOR U ERIKA
( You can throw as many slights as possible on me .. i will cry & laugh & bear it .. BUT .. my LOVE will not become any less .. DEAR DADI MAA or GRANDMA)
Dear Fellow Viewer & Reader .. Welcome to yet another edition of DC .. an episode which I am sure touched a lot of bruised hearts .. an episode which i am sure held you captive .. with the promise of the veil being lifted .. from the shadows of the past .. an episode . which answered some of the questions .. which was always highlighted in the past .. on the basic character structure of Arnav & Anjali ..
But for the majority of us .. the episode was all about HUMARI BAHU ..KHUSHI ...
Yea as always .. all this in 18 minutes of edge of seat drama & entertainment ..
14 years back .. a young boy & a young girl .. lost all that was dear to them .. a cruel fate of hand .. left them orphans .. & were then brutally thrown out of the their home & hearth .. the place where all their memories were held ...
The lady who was supposed to shelter & nurture them .. left them .. to wallow in her own grief ..
That day they not only lost their parents .. their home ... their ANCHOR .. they lost their YOUTH & INNOCENCE ..
Result : THEY LOST THEIR IDENTITY
( Did u ever wonder . why .. Arnav always mentions .. his name with pride "I AM ARNAV SINGH RAIZADA ) .. & associates his name as his alter ego.. his name has always been his EGO .. . because he knows what it is to loose ones IDENTITY .. )
Thats the day .. Arnav & Anjali .. faced life's cruelest joke .. they faced Abandonment ..
They say our past frames our future .. & if this is true .. then Arnav & Anjali's past .. has this huge shadow .. on their soul .. the shadow of abandonment .. which has framed their future ..
Time & Time again .. the maker has highlighted .. the reactions of Arnav & Anjali .. when they felt .. they were loosing someone .. who was close to them .. when they felt they were loosing grip on life .. they both unravel .. whether .. it is a mad dash run behind an ambulance .. or its a breakdown when u dont know the whereabouts of the other ...
Whether it is forcefully tying the person to you .. the moment u felt you were loosing them . .. OR .. pinning away for the person who left u .. making him larger than life in ur mind ..
14 years ago .. Arnav left .. Sheesh Mahal .. an abandoned .. man .. a shattered man .. Arnav left sheesh mahal as a MAN OF 15 years ..
He came back .. after 13 years .. as a BOY of 27 years .. to claim back .. all that was abandoned to him ..
On the same day .. he met with his destiny .. he met with his future .. but instead of holding onto the future .. he insulted & abandoned that future .. since at Sheesh Mahal .. Arnav had learnt only one lesson ... ABANDONMENT ..
BUT they say .. u can run . u can hide .. u can duck .. but the past will catch up with you .. & catch up it did .. the past caught up with him & became his future . ..
This is ... Iss Pyaar ko Kya Naam Doon ??
Ok so guys .. grab your remotes .. sit back . & lets play .. Pause Release ..
Arnav and Nani are shocked to see Dadi in RM and Arnav recalls the fateful night again. Dadi is emotional seeing him and hugs him. Dadi and Nani also share a joyous reunion. Nani introduces Dadi to Payal and Khushi. Dadi is as usual disapproving of Khushi and is shocked to know that Khushi is Arnav's wife. Dadi looks at Khushi .. then looks at Mami .. Nani asks Khushi to take Dadi's blessings with Arnav but Dadi gives her blessings only to Arnav giving Khushi a long look and walking away from them. This shocks and upsets all Nani comforts Arnav and Khushi saying she'll talk to Dadi and set everything right.
Ofcourse Pause Pause ...
Before i go into explaining the view from the Directors lens .. Let me first acknowledge .. Barun SObti .. BOY .. u were beyond fantastic today .. superlative .. sublime .. just dont do justice to ur performance ..
Ok .. grab ur remote ..
Arnav & Nani walk into RM & see Dadi there .. now pls pause here .. lets go frame by frame .. lets catch Anji first . does she for a moment have a look of guilt .. ( hand caught in the cookie jar look) .. she knows what she initiated in her room with Dadi .. she knows .. who she will use as her crutch .. but in a split second .. her expression changes to concern .. & apprehension .. she knows the impact of seeing Dadi .. on Chotte ..
Dadi .. there is a moment of complete shock .. a blank look on the face of Dadi .. she is seeing her GRANDSON . after 14 long years . ..& then the maternal feelings rev up ..
Arnav .. he is shocked .. he then freezes . as he is plunged back into his painful past .. then the young helpless boy emerges .. lost in his reverie of the past .. who is nudged back to the present by his ANCHOR .. his nani .. & then walks forth the MAN .. Arnav Singh Raizada .. trying very hard to hide his 15 year old self ... bends & touches dadi's feet ..
& THEN he hugs his dadi .. with a NANI looking on .. i cant even beging to explain the brilliance of that one shot of NANI .. she is looking on at her friend .. with a FOND smile on her face for Arnav .. communicating .. U GAVE ME THE BROKEN BOY .. i am sending to you .. THE COMPLETE MAN ...
Then comes the moment .. Nani .. the GENTLE MATRIACH .. embraces Dadi . the CRUSTY MATRIACH . they share a quip . of long lost friends . & then Nani turns to introduce her new BAHUS to her friend .. "Samdhan" .. She introduces Payal first .. while Dadi .. acknowledges her . there is no softening in the woman .. no call for blessings .. no general platitudes .. offered when u meet a new bahu of the house ( very strange) .. & the comes the moment .. NANI .. introduces KHUSHI .. the ELDER RAIZADA BAHU .. THE WIFE OF ARNAV SINGH RAIZADA ..
A shocked .. dadi .. looks at KHUSHI & then At Mano mami .. who quickly hides behind NK .. a proud . Arnav looks on ... Nani asks Khushi to come forth & take blessings from dadi along with Arnav ..
They both bend together to touch Dadi's feet .. Dadi .. moves .. one foot back .. yes the one for Khushi .. & Arnav .. looks on angrily surprised or resigned
Nani comforts the 2 .. saying she knows her friend .. oh well she knows her grandson . who her friend doesnt know .. she is not wanting the inevitable confrontation .. which will happen . hence comforts them to let her handle this .
Scene 2 : RELEASE PAUSE .. PROCEED SCENE
Nani comes to Dadi in her room and asks her why she is so upset. Dadi says how she can be happy when she had left the responsibility of the kids on her but she didn't know about anything in Arnav's and Anjali's lives. Nani is angry and shoots back that she is the one who left them and went and didn't even care to keep contact after 'the incident'. Dadi asks her not to talk about it since she can only remember that 'woman'. The two women get into an argument.
Please to Pause ...
Ok lets firstly hand it over to Jayashree Tji .. very good performance tonite mam .. every thing the director wanted to convey thru the episode was there in ur face to read mam ..
2 friends meeting after a long time .. Nani who had given her daughter to Dadi for safe keeping .. as her "BAHU" .. got back .. just remains .. BUT tonite ..Nani .. is giving back the "BAHU" to the friend back.. without malice ..
Nani .. questions .. Dadi .. on what was her place to ask any questions to her .. the WOMAN left behind .. holding the remains of a butchered past ..She questions dadi .. on her right to today ask questions about .. "damadji" .. Anji Pregnancy ( oh well we have many ques here can v air them ?) Arnav marriage .. WHEN IT WAS DADI WHO ABANDONED .. SHIP ..
An enraged Dadi .. tells Nani not to bring in the past .. as it catapults her back to sordid thots of that "WOMAN".. Dadi says she doesn't want to remember that day .. BUT Nani . forces her to face up to reality .. ONCE AGAIN .. driving home the point .. U ABANDONED the KIDS to ME .. because of that INCIDENT .. so OF COURSE THAT INCIDENT & that WOMAN .. has impacted all the lives .. ( so guys .. who is this WOMAN .. hmm ) .. ... ..CUT ..
SCENE 3 .. RELEASE PAUSE .. PROCEED SCENE .
Khushi is disturbed because of the way Dadi has treated her. She walks into Arnav's bedroom and sees Arnav there. He also looks lost. He senses her presence but doesn't react. Khushi tries to talk to him about how Dadi didn't like her maybe because she didn't know about the wedding. Khushi goes and sits on the bed and Arnav finally takes a look at how upset she is. He comforts her saying that Dadi is not angry at her and also, the way they got married is not her fault but his; so she shouldn't blame herself as Dadi has always been this way and her judgement is always coloured. The way he speaks about her, it is clear that he doesn't like her dominating nature. Khushi is a little puzzled and asks Arnav why he is so angry, she feels it is some other reason and not what happened outside. She also asks why he never mentioned Dadi before and if things are fine between them. She assures him that he can tell her. Khushi tells him that she sometimes feels that she doesn't know anything about him. Arnav just walks away from her and Khushi feels that one moment, she feels she knows him and the next, she feels he is still a stranger.
Common Guys . Arhi bedroom .. U GOTTA PAUSE ...
The wife opens the door & walks in .. The RELUCTANT wife .. who just recently .. GOT the POWERS that her DESIGNATION brought with it .. who has not yet understood the power her designation brings .. hence is not able to exercise her right .. forcefully ..
The wife walks in tentatively .. towards her husband .. doesnt know whether she can voice her insecurities . doesnt know if she can share his angst .. but knows she has to comfort .. so she does that .. finds an excuse to lessen the pain, anger & guilt ..
The husband .. knows his wife is coming to him .. but does not acknowledge her .. he sees how tentative & reluctant she is .. BUT does not turn toward her .. or visibly accept her comfort ..
The dejected wife walks away .. & sits on her bed .. overwhelmed .. the first baby steps to claim her rightful position .. were today .. thwarted .. she is in tears ..
The husband .. realises .. pulls himself out of his reverie of past .. & goes up to his wife .. his RELUCTANT wife .. tells her .. U R THE RELUCTANT ONE HERE .. U R THE ONE FORCED INTO THIS UNION .. BY ME .. IF there is anything or any person to be ANGRY with then it is ME .. ( hmm true union of souls .. both taking the blame on themselves to ease the pain of ABANDONMENT & REJECTION) ...
This is the first time .. they have ever discussed the circumstance of their marriage .. & YES .. ARNAV ACCEPTS THE BLAME .. FOR FORCING HER INTO THIS MARRIAGE ..
The Husband then offers her comfort .. but a shocked Khushi looks on .. when her husband .. gives her the first INSIGHT .. it was also the first TIME ever .. he has shared his thots .. with her .. he says .. his dadi is a tunnel visioned woman . who always feels her way is the right way ..
The wife .. shocked .. ( home run ) hubby opened up .. walks up to him & starts pounding him gently for answers .. but .. this was the extent of how much .. ARNAV .. cud face his demons today .. he comforted his WIFE .. his RELUCTANT wife .. BUT .. he did not want to voice his DEMONS ..
The husband walks away .. the shocked .. wife left behind .. is left to wonder .. what is their MARRIAGE all about .. he has used all his might to BOUND her to him .. BUT .. a step forward together .. becomes .. 3 steps .. sideways .. away ..
Scene 3: Release Pause .. Proceed Scene ...
Dadi is upset with Nani about not informing about Arnav's marriage and is even more shocked to know that Arnav hadn't told anyone about the marriage (as told by Arnav himself as he interrupts their conversation). He tells Dadi that no one was present at his wedding. Dadi expresses her displeasure on this and Arnav doesn't seem to care. Arnav also tells her that she has no right to question him like this after leaving them and breaking all contact. Dadi tells him that she is still his grandmother, his father's mother. At the mention of his father, Arnav turns away and the two have a heated argument where Arnav says he is not like his father and will never be. He tells Dadi that he doesn't like anyone taking his father's name in the house and makes it clear enough despite Dadi's anger.
WhOOps Pause . else .. DadDY .. Sorry DADI looses her cool . ..
Once again ..it will be remiss of me not to mention .. the brilliance of the Young Barun Sobti here .. faced with 2 veteran actresses .. he more than held his own .. BUT whats more or less over shadowed & hogged the scene away .. Swati madam .. u need to buck up .. a very seasoned cast resides here ..
Dadi is pounding .. accusations on accusations on NANI . for not keeping her abrest of Arnav's wedding .. she cannot believe that her friend would not keep her informed of such a momentous occasion .. An unravelled nani .. reluctantly tries to sputter out . that she to had no clue of Arnav wedding .. but Dadi . the law unto herself .. is on with her diatribe .. WHEN .. they are interrupted BY ARNAV ..
Arnav .. the husband .. who just comforted & pacified his reluctant wife comes enraged .. to his Dadi .. to answer that .. he is answerable to NO ONE .. he did INFORM ANY ONE OF HIS WEDDING ..
Dadi .. first tries using .. her anger to bring him under her thumb .. but .. on seeing that being unsuccessful uses the EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL route .. she tells him .. HE REMINDS HER OF HER SON ..
The Grandson . when questioned on why he did not bother taking blessing or permissions before his wedding .. when asked .. what kind of decisions was he taking .. LETS LOOSE .. HIS INNER .. ANGST .. the FEELING OF THE ABANDONED BOY RISES TO THE TOP .. & out pours the venom .. U R ASKING ME .. NOW .. where were u when u totally ABANDONED us .. NEVER TO LOOK BACK .. SO WHO ARE U TO ASK THE QUESTIONS TODAY .WHAT RIGHT ARE U ASKING ME FOR ANSWERS .. . ( Barun superb voice modulation .. & expression of disgust .. mingled with angst) .
THE grandmother .. seeing loosing her grip .. tightens the screws .. says she is his grandmother .. the mother of his FATHER .. ( whoa lady red flag to the raging bull dear) ..
A visibly enraged .. but in control Arnav turns around .. & tells his DADI .. IN MY HOUSE NO ONE MENTIONS .. MY FATHERS NAME .. & U R MISTAKEN I AM NOTHING LIKE HIM .. ( oh well lady ofcourse he is not .. the father was a MALIK .. the son is a SINGH RAIZADA) ..
Scene 4: RELEASE PAUSE .. PROCEED SCENE ..
Nani tries to calm Dadi and Arnav down, asking them to forget whatever happened. Just then, Khushi comes in and Dadi stops her with her hand. Arnav turns around to see Khushi retreating. Dadi starts talking to him and Arnav walks up to Khushi ignoring her. He takes Khushi's hand and stands by her side and then ask Dadi to speak up. He tells her that he is not needed where his wife can't come so he will listen from the doorway. Khushi is touched at this gesture. Dadi says that she cannot say anything if that is his attitude. Arnav doesn't seem to care and Khushi is quite taken aback at this.
