"I married an emotion - she married an idea ... " Che Guevera at his wife's funeral
The above quote has an uncanny connection with Shlok and Aastha today ...
Shlok married a woman of emotions - passionate in her feelings/ demonstrative in her expressions, craving for a return of love - the emotions he saw in her attracts her to him -but he has wrapped a mask around his visage ... and he is refusing the deal with his inner emotions triggered by this chit of a girl who has turned his world upside down...
And Aastha married an idea - or shall we say ideal - a shlok who she imagined he was -
the caring, loving man who wooed her, loved her,swept her off her feet and married her
- only to bring her down to cold earth with the shattering blow that he did not love her ...
so she has begun to believe the worst about him and has failed to really see him beyond the
disillusionment of her own idea of who he is ...
But the truth is that neither the emotion is true nor the idea ...
Shlok's hate now stems not from revenge for his Baba's insult as he keeps on saying, but from the insult meted out to his own self by Aastha due to her failure to believe in him - to believe that he is incapable of actually incriminating her father and putting him in jail -
he is hurt, his ego is hurt because he probably feels that he has tried to tell her many times -
-angrily in the jungle that he was not responsible for her father going to jail,
again persuasively explaining to her when they get off the truck that he was not responsible as his own father's prestige is associated with it ,
and again today he lashed out in anger that he did not do it - and he did not care whether she believed him or not...
And a heartbroken emotional Aastha says that she does not have any reason to stay behind
because this is a "naam ka rishta" - shlok married her for revenge - there is only hate between them and though she married into such a beautiful family , shlok has denied her the right to continue living with them...
so aastha says that she
cannot live there because shlok hates her - ( she does not reiterate that she hates him)
she says she cannot stay there because he has denied her the right to stay..
she apologises to NA and to a baffled Varad and Chacha and asks them to forgive her for any
mistakes she may have unwittingly committed ...
and finally, the surprise ...
she tells Anjali that she held on to the water in her hand ( aastha - you are a magician)
which Anjali poured at her maikey to take the vow and did not answer then but she says
will answer now : that the choice about sasural or maikey lies in shlok's hands
and as far as she is concerned, she chooses her maikey...
so in other words, if shlok had not asked her to elave the house, she may have stayed back...
aastha still loves her shlok is what i can presume from all this...and shlok cannot also hide his feelings for a second - feelings of worry and frustration
as he is seen looking at her when she is speaking to anjali and telling her she has decided to
back to her mother's place...
Everyone in A house looked suitably shocked - sojal and abhay also looked very pleased
with themselves when they realised that everyone will think that shlok was behind the arrest and no suspicion will be directed towards them...
But why do i get the feeling that both NA and Anjali were not convinced with Shlok's outburst
- i almost felt that anjali heaved a sigh of relief - NA was looking at shlok in a surprised and somewhat suspicious manner and anjali in a manner that said -" i know my son too well ..."
and NA tells Aastha that this house will always be hers...
and the pre-cap indicates that he is going to pressurise his dear son to bring his dear DIl back home for the sake of Agnihotri prestige... so what is shlokie going to do to bring aastha back... ????/ tho he claims to his father that he cannot live with that girl ???
cant wait to watch all the episodes this week...
Hats off to Shrenu for some real quality emoting -- emotional scenes are really her forte
and avi was also outstanding as the back to angry look shlok agnihotri - the close-up of his angry face and hands close to NA's downcast face was a super shot by Waseem ..
Manish was also very good as always
a fabulous emotion packed episode ...
Great post Jonee.
This is what i wrote in Lechu's post just now .
I think he spoke about his hatred purposely in fron tof everybody and especially nA as he now made NA guilty . He made NA feel that Shlok took all these steps to punish Astha as she insulted his father. Now NA wants her to come back because of his image and Shlok will bring her back saying that she can still go. To her house and visit her parents. so NA cannot do the same to Astha that he did to Anjali. Astha will still have the rights to go and visit her parents and Aaju and stay with them whenever she wants.
Shlok has seen how angry NA was , his hand grip , so he is worried that NA will harm Astha and so to protect her he will play it this way. He also told NA that he is not behind Avadhoot's imprisonment, so now NA and Varad will start to think more about who the person is , so indirectly pointing fingers at Abhay. I think Shlok has started guessing about this. He will also thus know that his dad was not behind avadhoot fiasco.
Another thing Shlok did today was made it clear yo everybody that Astha did not purposely insult NA at the award fiasco and was so cleared her name from that.
So if you look at carefully Shlok is taking Astha's wrath but actually helping her. He made her more secure from NA and also will let her have all the rights not just as DIL as NA said but also as a daughter.
Anjali too again provoked Astha telling her "Shadi koi guddo gudiyon ka khel nahi hai." So Astha chose her maike and now NA will let her keep relations with maike for his image.. NA indirectly also said that he did not do any favor to Avadhoot.
So actually this is a win fro Astha as rights as Bahu and beti , although she is not getting her husband's love and till she starts seeing Shlok's real maksad, she will have to live with his hatred.
So Astha will come back but at her own terms now.
I think shlok is playing his game very well. He knows exactly how to change his game plan as per the situation. He has to win his game against NA, Anjali and Abhay and he will by changing his colors. He is the actual chameleon, not Astha.
Shlok and Anjali's emotions today show they have nailed NA . He is now caught in his own web and will do everything for Astha for his image. Even Varad purposely said that Shlok always loved Astha , right and Shlok said now he hates her. so Sjlok under Varad's mask helping Astha to get all her rights under the mask of hatred.
So my equation , i wrote it in another post is Astha hatred and Shlok hatred which is mask for actuallove for Astha at this time. Shlok knows what he is doing , he will clear his name in Avadhoot case and win Astha's trust back.
Great acting by all. Lively episode.
