I would like to thank you for this written update! You did a fantastic job
But I would also have to disagree with you respectfully.
I do not mean to start a war or any sort of disagreement and just wish to share my opinion.
If you feel at any point that my views are detrimental feel free to report the post to the moderators and accept my apology.
I don't feel in anyway that today's episode, or any episode this week has been a filler episode. On the contrary I feel that the story line has progressed quite fluently.
Today from the beginning scene with anandi and shiv it could plainly be seen that shiv is trying to court his wife. The dialog he said about trying to gig her as much love as a family would was a sentiment that had both my mother and I squirming with smiles at the television set. With this sentiment he also expressed and addressed the fear any newly married woman has regarding her husband - the fear of not being as loved in their new home. It was plainly seen by anandis reply hat both of them are striving together to get her assimilated into her new home as well as move forward in their married life.
The car ride the fact that anandi kept stealing glances at shiv and shiv catching her looking at him and smirking can only mean one thing - anandi is truly starting to become infatuated with her husaband. This was furthe reinforced by shiv introducing her as anandi shiv raj shekhar. Those scenes truly showed how comfortable anandi is becoming with her new husband.
Further more when anandi was handing out the blanket to the little orphan girl and she only thank anandi- she looked at shiv so the girl could realize to thank him as well. This was a clear sign to me that she is becoming more and more attached to him!
The subtle ness of siddharths acting is to b applauded. You could clearly tell that all along he knew that jagdish was in the premises. From searching for him when hey first arrived, to looking solemn during the tour, to trying to control his smile when anandi was in shock of finding him there (at which point my mum and I got off the couch and both went goo goo gaga over SIDS acting) shiv raj shekar can clearly bring happiness in his wife's life as well as his new inlaws-somehing that is to be commended in all gentlemen.
As for the scene that involved a lot of talking - I think that this is why you may believe that this was a filler episode. I believe the speech shiv gave was necessary in two things being accomplished 1) anandi clearly will gain more respect for him and admire him and 2) jagdish's mentality will change as I'm sure he will finally stop running away. The speech was also a good insight into human nature as one tends to run away. It also made j realize that he had left anandi in the same position so maybe he will now gain a better understanding of what he put her through - helping in him, I hope, in becoming a better man.
Last of all the ending scene with Ganga and jagdish can not even begin to be described as a filler - that plot line will be picking up. Ganga will see that this man is truly trying to help her - provides insightful indication as to where that track is going and gives us hope hat she will be rescued soon from her terrible fate.
So again I would like to apologize if injury anyone's feelings but I for one was left giddy after this episode and wouldn't describe it as a filler episode
