I have tears in my eyes.. What an episode
Beautifully executed and
for the cast and the crew. They have managed to make this one of the most touching episodes ever.
A family. Worried for their son on one hand and worried for their DIL on the other. As any hopes of Ahem coming back dims slowly, the entire family stands together, gathering each other, rallying around, trying to stay strong for each other and for that one girl whose life resides in his heart.. She would be shattered and devastated if she found out the truth. Kokila was right. Gopi cannot handle the truth without breaking down. She finally did.. OMG..How beautifully portrayed
I cannot but have tears in my eyes. GoKi, you guys rock..
Kokila is strong but she is also vulnerable. Hetal and Baa are the same. This is called as a family and today Rashi can be added to the Modis again. The fact that Ahem is not coming back soon is finally sinking into her I guess and she proved that she was atleast better than her mother. Her frustration, irritation at Urmi was really true in the kitchen. Yes she was afraid that somebody would hear her mother and she would be pulled up again but atleast she had the decorum to try stop her mother from running away with her mouth. Urmila
was just herself today. Uncaring, unmoved at the tragedy happening. Her words are always negative showing her true self. She is better off with Rashi in the kitchen and for her information, she is welcome to walk out of MM and go home and sleep. Dhawal should have let her.
As the hopes die down of Ahem just walking into the house, Koki finally breaks down. She may put up a brave face to Gopi but it is her son, the son she was so proud of, the son who is her life. Under these circumstances she breaks down and her own MIL who is another mother to her stands with her, comforting her and giving her strength.
They say that happiness multifolds when shared while distress reduces to half. The Modis took solace in each other and gave strength to each other as they fought their own selves, willing to hope for the best while they feared the worst.
I knew, I knew the person at the doorbell was not Ahem. But the joy that broke in those faces as the doorbell rang, the way the entire family ran to the door, for that one second, I was wishing...wishing so hard that Ahem come back.. I was wishing so hard
and like the Modis my face fell too. Even though I expected it to be Mr. Sneaky Aman, I could not but hope in one corner of my heart. Hats off to the team
While the others battle with a plain clothes officer (I do not believe it for a second that Mr.Patel is a sub inspector. The man cries out loud that he is no police officer. How can the Modi's fall for this white lie?
), Aman raised my suspicion to his fullest
Aman better stop behaving like he owns the Modis
He is too authoritative with Jigar, too controlling of their decisions in this situation and is that a joke? Not call the commissioner of police?
Jigar please think.. This guy is so obviously a fraud
Only Koki looked a little troubled and even she was overwhelmed to think through the request
BTW, I hate it. Aman assuring Koki not once but twice. Why do I have a feeling that he is trying to be Ahem? He is.. He is trying to be Ahem in his absence.
As the family battles through trying their best to do the right thing, Gopi, who they want to protect is battling her own demons. Her talk to their baby blaming herself for Ahem going out was just the starting point. She knows something is wrong but others assure her otherwise. There she was crying her heart out on Baa as her two mothers looked on. They know there is nothing they can do.
Baa again gathers her strength to give her strength to Gopi, to make her sleep. They know she needs to be strong. She is going to be a mother. But what can one say? Gopi is so tied to Ahem, they are linked through a love that transcends space and time. Was that a premonition? Or just a nightmare.. It was so touching to see her dream as she cried for forgiveness begging her husband to come back. Gopi is frightened as she dreams of Ahem asking her to save him.. He has very little time he says.. How will someone get over that? No wonder Gopi screamed and cried for Ahem.
The family was right beside her. Gopi hugging Koki pleading to talk to Ahem was so moving. The family are helpless. They cannot alleviate her fears only assure her and keep her in the dark for a few more hours. But they did not count on Urmi..
Till this, I was watching my heart in my mouth as the family went through the upheaval and stayed strong for Gopi. But as Gopi walked to the hall, it broke me as her eyes traveled to the door.. The hope, the distress, the sadness in her eyes as she looks at the empty space..
My eyes filled as Gopi walked towards the kitchen. I think Gopi's heart was already screaming that her Ahemji was not ok.
It only took Mrs. Urmi Shah's big mouth to make her nightmare come true. As UrShi talked, Gopi stood there horrified, learning the truth finally. Her look of utter horror and disbelief as she stood at that door. Rashi has not chance. Gopi has heard everything. She is just letting it sink in.. And as it sinks in, hysteria will set.. That is what the precap is all about.. The devastation that she will go through as she realizes that her Ahemji is missing and no one knows where, no one has a clue. As she realizes that her mistake may be the costliest ever she will break, asking everyone why they lied to her.. Why they lied.. Because she now knows that her heart did not lie. She had ignored its plea because she trusted them all, those who rallied with her. Now she knows that her heart was right while they all lied to protect her from herself.
I will be waiting for Gopi to gather herself. Watch as she stands tall and strong and watch as this amazing family supports her to find their son and bring him back. Ahem is very very lucky. I envy him
** Rashi is finally back with the Modis. She may not have been crying but she is realizing that this may not be as simple as they imagined. I am glad she is not her mom
** Kinjal - I can forgive her follies. She stood there supporting her mom through and through. Whatever their differences, mother and daughter today broke the invisible wall between them. I wish Parag had intervened just one moment later.
** Aman is officially the villain. I am totally convinced.
** I loved how they all had such good words to say about Ahem. When Parag said that Ahem was always good in his business relations you could see his trust and pride. A father finally speaking
** And again, hats off to the team especially Rupal and Devoleena for the amazing portrayal.
Special mention to the background music, especially the one that changed from happy to devastating when the doorbell rang.. That fooled me even though I knew it was not Ahem
