Just saw the episode and this one seems to be one of those episodes that was aimed at providing a really strong basis for Gurbani's mom to really actively
search for that NRI dulha now. It was a decent episode over all but just left me a bit drained towards the end..
They seem to be laying that foundation for Gurbani's mom's resentment really well
- in the past few episodes we just had that "what if" and "life would be better" theories
that she was living on but today they actually put the reality in her face (and ours) and showed her just HOW better her life could be. And this time, instead of me feeling bad for Gurbani's mom, I actually felt bad for Nirvaal's family. Because honestly, I
was starting to feel guilty for him not being able to find the magic-key-to-instant-success in Canada and "failing" instead. It started with Sukhi's house and how grand it looked and then we moved on to Sukhi and her 360 makeover.. I was already a little shifty and uncomfortable by that point with all the look-how-great-her-NRI-wedded-life-is but then Sukhi's oh so handsome husband walked out with a son (que doe-eyed aunties going ga-ga).. *exasperated muh* But YE bhi sahi tha.. Until that kid dropped his food and Bani being the ever nice person absentmindedly offered to help. *face palm* She didn't know how upset her mom would get and how this would be the last straw but oh man, I could! And if I could stop her and get SUKHI do clean her own son's mess I would. In a heart beat
.. Because yaar itna guilt trip kara diya ye toh..
And then Gurbani's mom's (WHAT IS HER NAME!!! I can't remember!
I'm calling her GM.. Lol..
) starts to cry and baad mein she vents to Beeji.. *sigh* Yaar ab toh MUJHEY guilt ho raha hai and it's just been four episodes. Nirvaal and his family have been dealing with this for years.. I can totally see why he is sick of it and just hurt by GM's constant anger.. It must
grate on his nerves.. It MUST! Because I know it would mine..
On to nicer, happier
things in the show today - SOHUM (Apparently it's spelled with a U? I didn't even know!
)! This guys is so cute (like pull-your-cheeks wala cute) with his adoration for Gurbani..
Gets all rigid around her lest he say/do something that gets him "caught". And then stares at her peechey se..
Do you know how EASY it is for that to get creepy
and how amazed I am that I find it cute instead? *shakes head*
By the way, how innocent and cute was his dream?! Especially when they both just SIT on the steps with enough distance between them for pre-wedding-Sukhi to sit and just smile at each other.. *sigh* How freaking adorable! THANK YOU to who ever is incharge of making sure that this did not turn into a lust-and-hormone-filled stare session! It managed to retain its innocence and I just loved it! Reminds me of a simpler, more innocent time when it was just enough to sit and share a moment instead of all the other crap.
AND! Anu! A new addition to the Ishq da Kalma song!!!
I've been listening to Ishq da Kalma on repeat too so you can imagine how excited I was.
LOL! Bani is all upset k Sohum talks to everyone and their grandma with a smile on his face and bass isi k waqt he can't talk!
Yes Bani, please do tell how you don't care..
Baki GM's calling Sohum "munda thori hai, Sohum hai" and Rajji's oh-so-innocent smile at Sohum while he was heading back.. LOL moments.. These were cute!
The episode had enough of cute/serious moments balance that this should have been a balanced enough episode but I think it is the way that those scenes were bunched that just made the second half a bit overwhelming for me. Pehley it was all smiles and then end mein it was just tears and guilt upon guilt! And of course, lets end it with a hot-headed "pind da munda" finally just getting his say while his dad isn't around and hurling a kid's toy over the wall.. *shakes head* *face palm* WHYYY? *frustrated sigh* I mean I know why.. I just wished he hadn't
because now that just exacerbates the situation.. *sigh* But woh bhi kya karey.. The constant tanabaazi that his parents have to deal with must get on his nerves too. (Yes, this is basically how most of my discussions in my head go with respect to the GM-Nirvaal conflict.
I am definitely excited for tomorrow though because it seems like while today they showed how great an NRI-based life would be and set the basis for why GM will start to actively look for an NRI dulha, tomorrow they'll show us how everything may NOT always be sunshine and roses in this scenario using Rano's side of the story..
