Shyamala, Naava, for the first time yesterday I was a little uncomfortable about Onir.
Apart from whether he should be with Purvi or not, I have always credited him with a transparent good nature. Something was out of place yesterday, couldn't put my finger on it exactly. Onir's reluctance to let Purvi come to court, his reticence in telling her about the switch in the CDs, even the adroitness with which he changed those CDs, boded some evil intent behind it all.
Also, contrary to what some have insisted, Purvi is the one that has been bursting to spill the beans. After the Mittal confrontation, she wanted to go tell all, Onir held her back. Yesterday, she wanted to confess, he again pulled her back. I can understand if he "discusses" the option of baring all and then by citing the reasons against the disclosure, persuades her not to tell everyone. That is not how he has been operating, it is a preemptive and decisive "no" to her wish to share her wrong doing with the family.
Thinking back, Onir was readily acquiescent to the baby swapping, yes, he did ask her, "are you sure you can live with this" but no strong dissuasion especially as Purvi was in no state to make a sensible decision.
Maybe, just maybe there is more than meets the eye with this man. Onir bamboozled Purvi into marrying him, done ever so sweetly, the wait (court marriage) which takes a month or two was readily waived for him, I am a little on the fence as regards to him now. Even the money snatching when the police arrived on the blackmailer scene was clever, yes, at that moment it did appear as just an opportune move but was it really? Is Onir sly? Is he there for ulterior motives? His shades of grey if as Shyamala writes can be attributed solely to a man of close to 40 being in love for the very first time, I may reluctantly excuse him. Why does Mittal accuse him of organ trafficking? Baby swapping, yes, but organ trafficking? A far fetch or mistake on the part of the CVs? Why did Onir a good doctor not report Mittal and Kundan the very first time? Any doctor worth his salt whose profession demands he save lives not destroy them, would and should have been appalled enough to have raised immediate hell over the entire sordid situation. Why did not the good doctor, Onir? Are the CVs leading us a merry dance again?
All that said, two things displeased me about yesterday's epi, Purvi's dwelling on her sin of baby switching with no thought or mention of Onir possibly languishing in jail for long years and secondly, I did not like Onir's almost forceful stopping of Purvi from confessing, did not sit right at all.
One thing that did please immensely was Ovi's return to the demented zone, her panic, her nightmare, made me smile. Her terror at having something she believes is hers being prised away from her, warmed the cockles of my heart. Not punishment enough for snatching Arjun (yes, I have registered all the arguments that hold Purvi at fault but they make not a whit of a difference to me when it comes to Ovi's guilt) from Purvi. I gleefully hope she, Ovi, stews in this misery of doubt and fear for a really long while. Leopards don't change their spots and she for all her goody two shoes behavior lately, can never change her inherent arrogance or selfishness. She may be pitiful in her insecurities but good, not at all.
jhanvi... an excellent review of "suspicions" about Onir. hh...makes me almost want to watch yesterday's epi...
sorry Shyamala, i am not being a good girl.
all things aside, why should Onir be spared going from good to questionable in the PR roster. Happened to some very good people before him. !
But i do have to take issue with the Ovi part. I think her actions now are justified, any mother waking up and seeing her baby not there..has a moment of panic...however, it isn't stated that way...it seems her fear isn't a Varsha style kidnapping, but an Arjun kidnapping.
So, is she or is she not really concerned about the baby? After all when she saw that Teju had her, she was fine.
Maybe she does think Purvi will try to replace her a mother, and that's a normal reaction when she believes the baby is hers (or if the baby is hers) and knowing how much the baby means to Arjun, I find it perfectly normal.
You know i don't care for the Ovi/Arjun jodi at all...i can't even watch it ever, but loving the baby is in fact a good trait, and, well, i hope Ovi becomes good in the end...although it will be harder for her to do that, i think she has tried. Look at Varsha, looks like the cv's are on their way to redeeming her character. If Varsha can turn around, i am sure Ovi can too.
But i also find Purvi's obsession with the child is perfectly normal too. You can't be a mother of a baby you hold in your arms and not long for it, not want to nurse it. right?
Unfortunately there are real time consequences for each and all of their mistakes.
