Today was seriously like a bad car accident that was horrible to look at but too difficult to look away from. From the minute Amreek and Bani came down the stairs I had a massive knot in my stomach and it just grew worst with every minute.
First of all, WHO actually ANNOUNCES their decision like that? I mean I'm sure it happens but if you know that your decision is going to be as controversial as it is, wouldn't you try to speak to your parents in private first before blind siding everyone? It would have been so much better if Amreek would have just stepped to one side with his parents and told them his decision so that THEY would approach the issue with tact instead of just going *blah* I like Rajji *blah*.
Over all, what I had thought would be a cliche'd scene ended up being well handled and I'm kind of surprisingly interested to see what happens next. There wasn't a lot of melodrama during the whole thing (not excessive at least) and I liked that the whole "Desho misunderstanding Rajji and Nirvail for this" was not approached. They dealt with that pretty quickly - Rajji meeting Amreek and their discussion was revealed to the family pretty nicely by mami jee and then Nirvail handled it pretty nicely. He was on top of the issue RIGHT away so that left no room for Desho to question him! Especially when he said that Rajji will never try to steal what's rightfully Bani's - that clarified all of Desho's doubts hopefully... (Can you tell I am sick and tired of shows where misunderstandings are just stretched for no apparent reason..
But I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised by Amreek. I thought he was going to be a regular silent dulha who will make a mess and leave with his parents but I do appreciate that he took the whole fall out for the issue. I mean he is doing this for BANI (partially) but he's single handedly taking the entire blame and putting up with all the anger for it.. I appreciate that - that sort of confidence and courage.
And in all honesty, who can really blame him for liking Rajji instead of Bani? Is it really that far fetched of him to like a girl who is confident, speaks her mind and actually CONVERSES with him and DISCUSSES with him instead of one who is a silent mule and literally a self-inflicted martyr at all time. Please, if it was me, I'D pick Rajji over Bani too.. Rajji has infinitely more character than Bani at the moment. I'm all for doing what is right for your family but lets not regress to the 18th century in the process! I'd be more impressed if Bani was able to handle the situation WHILE maintaining her wishes/aspirations. But she is just choosing to take the easy way out - let me just stay quiet and go through the misery of a marriage no one would be happy with because it's going to be just TOO hard to try to fix everything without doing something so spineless. *rolls eyes*
For me, Rajji-Amreek-Nirvail were definitely the star of today's show. And not to mention, I kind of like mami jee too now! She's pretty blunt and sometimes doesn't say things very tactfully but she usually says the RIGHT thing and means well.
Lets see how tomorrow is!
