Priya: your quote and 1st part of the post just is so insightful.. I took me couple of reads to fully understand it...just beautiful. Agree with you about the screenplay and direction as also about the acting : highlight of the episode.I always look for your take about the episode as it connects me to the inner voice of the storyline and today was no exception.
Kabhi kabhi humein lagtha hai ki hum aapke bohat
kareeb hai, aur kabhi aisa lagtha hai hum bilkul ajnabi hai...
Arnav-Khushi's journey hit a major milestone today. The gates of communication has been reached. It has not fully opened up but it has been unlocked. We see a wife reaching out to her husband to help her understand what's hurting him; vocalizing her need to 'understand him and his history. We see a husband putting aside his own turmoil, assuring her of no wrongdoing in their marriage which is at crosshair of conflict between Daadi and Arnav . Tumari koi galthi nahi thi, meine tumhe majboor kiya shaadi ke liye He opens up to her about his Daadi, her stubbornness, her fixation with her own notions. A self-reflection maybe? But the rawness of an open scab from wounds inflicted 14 yrs back is evident in his inability to talk about it and his walking away from there.
Daadi- Arnav rules of engagement:Two people who are more similar
than different. Both confident about themselves, their convictions. And both at
loggerheads because of their past and present. She demands
answers about his actions in the present and he refuses because of her 'abandonment'
in the past. She reminds him that he's like his Dad whose actions still a sore
point for him. She demands authority, respect because "haq banta hai
hamara, riste se umar se'hum aapke Daadi hai..Aapke babuji ki amma'.he assures her
of his respect for her but lets her know he'll never be like his dad, "nahin main unke tara hoon..nahin main banunga"'.
She prods him as her grandson. He replies as the man of the house : Dadi,
shaayad apne teek se suna nahin,iss ghar mein unke (dad) baare mein baat karna
mujhe Pasand nahi hai...
6 months back Arnav had promised Khushi that sindoor and Mangalsutra were all she's going to get from him as his wife'.he'd not give her the postion as his wife and threw her out of their room as he didn't want to deal having to breathe the same air as her. Today there is another threshold. Another gestural refusal by his Dadi to Khushi's role as Arnav's wife. Arnav crosses over the threshold of separation and goes and stands by his wife : Jahan meri patni ke liye jaga nahi hai, mujhe nahi lagtha waha meri koi zaroorath hai. A resounding message addressed at Dadi but affects his wife more . which was further confirmed by his 'Aapki maarzi" . A reaffirmation by a husband that he'll stand by his wife like he did the other day when he threw Shyam out and said "I trust Khushi".
Other points of interest:
Acting : Naani and Daadi
ruled today. Finally there was one person who can share the screen space with
ASR and not wilt to his overbearing personality, hi Daadi. And Sanaya's eyes
spoke volumes as a bahu wanting acceptance at her in laws, as a caring wife reaching out to soothe her husbans or as a woman getting respect of a sahadharmini, by her husband in true sense for the 1st time.
An episode with small but significant moments, some having roots pain in the past while other with promises of better tomorrow.

Congrats dear harichandana'.your post was so touching'almost an eye opener to us who thinks all this caste based madness is a thing of past.thank you pyari Anjali
@ priya, is this d best crooner or d best is yet to come?
Darling, your crooner is like Sobti'who raises d bar himself'.competing with his own excellence'.
I don't know frm where am reporting 'sets of Dabangg, location of Singham'must be something like that'what a face off.
Guys, pls excuse me today if I continue to praise BS after every alternate sentence'doesn't he deserve that?
Life can only be understood backwards
But it must be lived forwards: can anything be more apt?
Past is right in front of Arnav Singh Raizada'after 14(or is it 15) years? With all d bitter memories, that fateful night'mention of his father'd last night of his mother and Di's broken marriage'
Oh sobti!!!!! Who else could have portrayed that pain, that helplessness, those restrained emotions in your eyes.
Jis tarah se hamari shadi hui usme tuhari koi galti nahi'maine tumhe majboor kiya'
What an admittance from d husband who once accused Khushi of: mujhe explain karna zaroori nehi samjha????
Why do I feel that when Arnav said it doesn't matter to him what will happen after 10 days he meant a lot'.in these 10 days each day he is going to reveal something to Khushi'whether it's a sorry, or sharing a past story or creating a dreamlife for her'she will become his ARDHANGINI in its true sense at d end of 10 days'yesterday was a small step towards it 'when Khushi reassures that he can share his sorrows with her.
Dadi wohi dekhti hain jo who dekhna chahti hain: didn't we here d same allegations frm Khushi towards Arnav in d bridge scene'..
Aahha now I know runs in d family'..but ASR is righteous in his own way'he is not shying away from his misdeeds'.he admits that there was no fault of Khushi in the marriage'likewise takes d responsibility in front of Dadi too. He accuses dadi of d same charges'd anger in his eye speaks volume'he has paid his price for not believing Khushi, he saw what he wanted to see and believe and ended up making d biggest mistake of his life'that's why probably he hates those character traits so much'.and of course he has not forgotten dadi's aloofness towards them for d last 15 years'
Ok I have my reservations on dadi'.i am still to understand d character other than d basic Malik traits like anger, not letting others speak, arrogance'.
Isn't she a irresponsible one too? She went to her recluse after that fateful night which shook their lives vehemently'.never checked on her grandkids, not even her friendlike relative Devyani Raizada, denied to even meet them'.how come she makes a grand entry after 15 years and demand explanation for all d happenings in these people's lives. she is even concerned about missing damadji...i guess Di will soon get extremely comfortable in Dadi's company...
Payal: at least she understood her mistake'.she knows nobody can stay angry with Khushi once they interact with her'
thanks to payal we got our best moment'' As I said in yesterday's crooner, how Arnav walks back to Khushi, stands next to her and will take their journey forward '..share their pain'to live blissfully in d future you have to embrace the sorrows from d past and cover them with your love.
Jaha meri patni nehi aasakti
Mjhe nehi laagta waha meri koi zaroorat hain
Yippeee dhinka chika dhinka chika'total siti maroo paisa wasool moment for me..
This is how my ASR looks and talks'.mami is yet to understand whose d original sher in d house.
Even nani was proud of his stance'playing d husband's role to T, she was proud of her upbringing'.wishing only if her son in law would have behaved d same 15 years back'
Arnav with his one single gesture probably eradicated d doubt from his nani's mind that he was not like his father'
Big round of applause for naniji'.what an absolutely adorable lady'she lost her daughter, but took care of her children, brought them up as decent human beings, showered them with love, guidance and blessing.
My today's kostin'.
3. is his father alive?
Epic moment: mami hiding behing NK
She knows she is scary but now Dadi will soon taking over'.tough competition ahead.
NK: muahhhzz babua for your smiles at right moment.
Khichdi ka paani: ya all mixed up'..all tangled up here relations, past and present...
I have no superlatives for BS anymore'..you make me speechless'you are the best..
Piece of advice to Mr Sobti: get your eyes insured dude'.they are peerless

A good heavy book holds you down. It's an anchor that keeps you from getting up..(Roy Blount)
Lady Sobti you raise the bar every time to..what a write up Priya..I got goose bumps..GRAINS OF REFLECTION. I was pondering on his past'...how his past has made him, what he is today...
"ek lamhae mai simaat aya hai sadiyon ka safar...zindagi tez bahut tez chali ho jaise"'
14 saal pahlae..14 saal baad'who ek lamha .. yeh lamba safar'but he lived that moment every day of his living life.. When you keep revisiting your past every night, it ends up making you the person you are every morning!! Its soo important for you, that your dreams change..
Dadi-His link to past (broken and scattered ..grains of reflection. ..Nightmare)
Khushi- His bridge to the future (his shadow in her eyes'grains of reflection..dreams)
Haqq- (how i love this word ..now a days)
"Shayad aapne suna nahin ..iss gher mai koi unka naam lae MUJHAE pasand nahin"- ..so true Mera Gher, Lion is in the den...walls are of brick not glass..shielding and protecting..No one is allowed to hurt me or mine..you were gone .when I needed you most..You escaped..I fought'stood by..made it from scratch...fathered my home..my sibling and my family..NOW I DECIDE. If you love me you understand me...if you don't love me..I don't care whether you understand me or not...ties of blood will not give you "HAQQ"..
"Biwi ho tum meri..haq hai tumhara ..mujh per"- wife from a contract marriage..but he loves to call her BIWI
"Kiss haq sae pooch rahi hai aap mujh sae"- Blood ties..i am your fathers mother'But he refuses her .. her rights..If we go by regular norms of "RISHTAEDARI KI DUNIYA" she is head of the family being denied rights'
Haqq pyar ko hota hai..adhikar ka nahin..diya jata hai.liya nahin jata'
Mai Aisa kyon hoon: His simple and stated thoughts:
How you spoke about his thoughts being simple..he knows the bottom line..and states it..that makes him fearless because he is not confused about what he wants.. "janha meri patni nahin aa sakti..waha mera koi kam nahin hai" decides at the moment..and executes.. "shayad aapne suna nahin".. he knows RELAXXX
first face off with "Kichad ka pani on the face"(did it say anything about the past) ..denied entry to her room..she was stopped at the threshold..Aukaat or Mariyada ka farka'she was denied entry because dadi thought she doesn't deserve to be a part of her family'but he crossed the threshold.. "Rishtae ki Mariyaada dhaleez langh kae bhi rakhi jaa sakti hai.." went out and stood by her..for her ..Sometimes all you need in life is a hero..(read it somewhere in the crooner)
PS: but yes..slowly Arnav is making me forget the 3 episodes when ASR was quite'that one step out of the threshold to stand by his wife 'Time heals and actions to.
Again revisited my doubts on her belonging..how she belonged to the house..room..man..and his pain... do they actually remember "nahin jaoongi wapas jub tak contract khatam nah ho jaye".. "hum aap ko apna pati nahin mantae"' "baki sab bhi khatam"..reaching out to each other.. "ek second bhi yeh mat samjhna ki tumhari galti hai"' "aap bata saktae hai hum ko"
My words and ramanchi-ramanchi that they keep playing
koi khamosh hai itna, bahaane bhool aaya hoon
kisi ki ek tarannum main, taraane bhool aaya hoon
meri ab raah mat takna kabhi aaye aasma waalon
main ek chidiya ki aankhon main udaane bhool aaya hoon
(I am home..and how!!)
Sahara:In each family a story is playing itself out, and each family's story embodies its hope and despair. Dadi is not all despair..there is hope..Khushi clinged to her when she was about to lose balance on "kichad ka pani" in their first face off'n then you can't hate Khushi..no one can..look at your grandson dadi..mighty tried with all his might..and now he is fighting with all to keep her..
