episode starts off from yesterdays where she falls down while walking on those
stilettos. The concerned family of hers comes running to find out what happened.
They are shocked to see her make up.She is reluctant to tell but Aarav tells
them that she wants to enter the Mrs. India contest. Our darling Naani a very
broadminded lady asks her why she wants to do it. Kushi says she wants to prove
she is not stupid and can do something by herself and with confidence.
family agree with her and encourage her and Naani says everything will be okay.
She requests them not to tell her Arnavji because she wants to surprise her.
family as usual will do anything for their Kushi Bitiya and will get her new
clothes and accessories and encourage her to take part in the competition. The supporting cast Naani, Maami and NK stand out.
show Arnav in the office working and delegating some responsibilities with Mr.
India the invisible man Aman. At home Kushi is filling her form. Naaniji will
tell her not to worry about anything and will teach her how to dance.
Maamiji coming down the
stairs hears this and is angry. She will tell to herself I will see how she
will become Mrs. India. This reminds me of Maamiji of a year and a half ago who, When introduced, she was busy putting on makeup
and dressing up for a Puja held in the house. She is so conscious of how she
looks and she never steps out of her room without any make up on her face. She
has a very sharp brain and very quick witted. She is always with face packs and
going to Spas.
She tells she is the one
who is going to be Mrs. India and was the 6th runner up for some
beauty contest. She starts filling the form and realizes that there is an age
limit. So she puts it as 35, Aarav who comes there asks her if she is really
35. She says that she is young at heart and so she can be 35, and she acts as
if she is very upset and goes up. When she sees that naani and Kushi are not
bothered she gets very upset and makes a call to Arnav telling him Kushi is
This scene was vintage IPK
and takes me back to the golden days of IPK, Maamiji just nailed the scene and
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing her after a long time.
My dear friend Bushy
would have done a better job than me.
Arnav is very puzzled about
the call for she says all is not well and how Kushi is planning something.
Arnav in turn calls Kushi and she does not answer his call.
The next scene is just fantastic;
Maamiji is in her room crying and NK by her side just supplying her with
tissues from the box. She says she is missing Aakash and Payal and she is
lonely. NK can't understand why she is crying and she tells him because she is
now lonely she wants to become Mrs. India.
NK is shocked and asks her
why she wants to become Mrs. India. Kushi come up to Maamiji room and signals to
NK that she will handle Maamiji. In order to console Maamiji she tells her that
the organizers knew that if they raised the age limit for the competition then
Maamiji would surely win it.
So they deliberately had a
age bar, then she pleads with Maamiji that since she is an expert in all these
beauty treatments she wants to learn how to put make up from her. Maamiji is
ready and tells her I will try but I cant give you any guarantee that you will
look as beautiful as me. Maamiji starts getting Kushi ready.
Meanwhile Anjali will be
going to the temple. Arnav calls Kushi, again it is not answered. Maamiji is
giving the final touches and Naani, NK , Aarav see Kushi and scream. Maamiji
says see how beautifully I made you look. Kushi sees herself in the mirror and
screams out of shock.
I just loved this scene.
All the family members getting together, going according to Kushi's madcap
ideas like before. They all are hiding it from Arnav. Just love the scene.
Naaniji, as I said was a very broad minded lady and knew right from the first sight of Kushi, that she was the apt partner for a troubled grandson. She always encouraged Kushi to to what she wanted an trusted her to the core. She is a very elderly person and a shrewd judge of character.
There is a strong bond between Kushi and Naani and she has her unfailing support. She is a very sportive lady and ever ready to help her grand daughter-in-law out. She was teaching her dancing in order to help her to become Mrs. India. I just love this bond. I wonder are there are anymore characters like Naaniji around. I would love to have one around.
Next they show Kushi on the
phone with Payal, Arnav entering the house, talking with Aakash. I loved that
scene. Kushi describing the day to Payal and telling her fear that she is
scared and asking her not to tell Arnavji.
NANDA KISHORE AKA NK
NK sees Arnav and is
panicking and rushes to Kushi, proving that he will always be at her side
helping her as a best friend would do. He informs her that Nannav has come. She
is shocked and both try to clean the room. Kushi tells NK to go and stall
NK comes down the stairs,
Arnav asks about Kushi and NK will be stuttering and then says Kaam me mahfooz
hai. Arnav asks him, you thought for such a long time. And then you made a
mistake. He asks why she did not answer my phones and NK pretends he does not
know. Nk asks him why are you home so early. Arnav tells him it is personal. NK
getting desperate to stall him, tells come we have not spent time together, we
shall play some game with Aarav , like Antakshari. Arnav asks him are you on
drugs, he tries to stop Arnav from entering the room. Arnav does not bother and
he pushes the door and enters it.
The above scene was
excellent and both the actors Barun and Karan nailed it.NK proves he is once again a true friend of Kushi and usual partner in crime. Will do anything what she wants no questions asked. He blindly believes her and knows she does for the good of the family. It was very evident when they joined together to bring down Shyam.
Then he enters the rom and
knows she is hiding something from him. He asks her but she wont tell. Then she
gets a call and she answer's and puts it down. Arnav asks her who called Kushi
retorts do I ask you every time who calls you. In order to distrct him she
calls him Joru Ka Ghulam for coming home early. He is havng none of it. He knows
she is up to something.
The last scene will be best
described by my Adda friends. All I can tell is the Haldi loop is closed today.
Today's episode belongs to
the most talented supporting cast , Maamiji,Naani,NK,Anjali and Aarav.
