Superb post Koyelji!!
This is really a much needed post to put forward the reasoning of AshNi's sympathetic attitude towards Daksh and to clarify certain situations depicted in precap for Monday's episode.
Great analysis by you as always!! Loved every bit of it... ditto ditto from my side too.
As to, why AshNi believed Daksh; Ashu is too simple and sober to distrust any person who is so beguiling by outer appearance and especially when that guy puts his own life at stake to prove Dr. Rangnath innocent, why would Ashu not believe him?? Nidhi was still hesitating in shaking friendly hands with Daksh--her feminine instincts are still warning her but she has witnessed with her own eyes, the whole incident how Daksh fought for getting the evidence against the pharma. company goons plus Ashu too has been insisting her on taking care of Daksh -- He told her twice that Dksh had injured himself very badly and his injuries were graver than his. So, what option does the girl have?? But not trusting Mr. Fox?
Moreover RanJi are just like family members to AshNi. Nidhi-Anji are more than sisters and Rangu is like a younger bro. to Ashu. So, saving Rangu by getting hurt himself was a master-stroke from Daksh's side... This was all he needed to win the trust of RanJi as well as AshNi.
As for, why Nidhi went with Daksh to buy VD gift and why was she all decked up or why she didnt go with Ashu to the party etc. -- We will have to wait for Monday's episode for clarifications to all these doubts. Rather than speculating anything bad and bashing any character, it's better to stop reading too much between the lines till Monday's episode. Maybe Daksh invited AshNi both to the party (BTW, where is the mention of any party in pre-cap??
) or Ashu himself might have suggested Nidhi to go with Daksh and help him choose a gift for his GF -- we already saw twice, how he made Nidhi help and check on Daksh -- once while discussing plan of action for getting Rangu released from jail & next while she was dressing his wounds. Since Ashu has already planned a surprise VD celebration for Nidhi, he himself might have told her to get all decked up well before going with Daksh, so, that later Ashu could directly take her to surprise celebration spot.
I may sound too optimistic, but might be possible that Ashu gets to overhear Daksh's convo. with his father (I didn't see Nidhi/trustee closing the door after Nidhi left Daksh's room) and he is well-aware of Daksh's wrong intentions with Nidhi. Ashuji is too protective and possessive about Nidhi...
I am quite hopeful about such a possibility after watching Ashu swooping wifey up and getting her into car... The force in this gesture was so vehement... as if he wanted to protect Nidhi from evil Daksh before he could come near her... Ashu is very honest and cannot deceive others -- I agree, but, he isnt that fool that he cant understand others' slyness. When Amar was smitten by Nidhi, Nidhi hadn't believed Ashu, but, it was Ashu who had sensed Amar's special feelings for Nidhi. This time also, the way he had replied to Daksh: "Woh khushkismat main hi hoon jise Dr. Nidhi ne pasand kiya hai" -- I am taking 50-50 chance here that Ashu has figured out Daksh's obsession towards Nidhi & will protect her always. Looking forward to Monday's episode... still 2 more days to go...
