What can I say, the last few days have been excellent in the sense that the story is rushing ahead at full steam. The engine has been fueled and running at full speed ahead for the welcoming of the new entries into the show. But sadly the makers did not see fit to discard the excess luggage at the last stop and instead are bearing that too, along to the new destination.
Tomorrow marks the 400th episode of the series and it is indeed a great day for us all, fans of the show. The cast and crew must be elated as they have survived and succeeded against all odd proving everyone wrong from the former irate fans to the detractors to the nay sayers to the skeptical and those who did not want to give this talented and awesome group of people a chance, to prove their worth and their skills.
After treating us to the kidnapping drama and the dreaded Raghubhai saga, the CV's decided to appease us by moving Ashlok to their one BHK. My only grouse is that it should have been a bit far away from Apsara and her sight...I mean they have shifted to a house above their old one...Not cool CV's...not at all. We do not mind her so much but to show her salivating over Shlok and dreaming about him and her...that was a whole new level...
Ashlok got to romance in private finally and we saw Shlok admiring Aastha, his wife now, dressed in yellow...staring out the window and enjoying the fresh cool breeze and the sunlight on her face. It was so similar yet so different in its treatment. The last time we saw Shlok admiring Aastha, a girl he was annoyed with, wanted to teach her a lesson and yet fell in love with her when he saw her by the wind gazing at the anant chaturdashi chaand at Kolhapur Hotel and making a wish like a little girl. He could not act on his desires then as they were just awakened (his big fat ego acting as a stumbling block later too) but this time he could, as she was his wife, his love, his lover, his for 7 lifetimes and went to her to tuck in the key chain that would tinkle and sway with her walk...indicating her presence to him, just as the paayal he gave her on Deepawali day would do, alerting him of her presence and her whereabouts in the house. The first order of the day was to make love to his wife properly as he said, it felt like a century since they spent 2 moments in each other's company in utter privacy.
Shlok did not forget his ayi and Aastha was doing a fabulous job of keeping Anjali in the loop. Shlok wanted to make reparations, we wanted to see the two of them bond and spend some quality time as both loved each other but could never ever express it. For all his outward harsh behavior toward his ayi, he craved for her love and attention the most. Without much ado, the CV's got back Anjali to Ashlok. Thank god for small mercies as I was wondering if Anjali would actually make it or it would go the way of the other soaps and she would get lost or something would happen to her. No, the CV's woke up and was smart...gave Anjali some brains and she came to her son by herself. Wah Wah...Anjali...Taaliyan...to your bahu too for giving you self confidence in spades.
Shlok like a little kid, so excited to see his ayi...rushes to the bus depot early to pick up his ayi. Then on reaching home, plays a prank on Aashta by teasing her saying his ayi changed her mind and did not come. He also rubbed it in that she was worried that her bahu might have changed and would pick a quarrel with her at the drop of a hat. When she sees Anjali, she is overjoyed, overwhelmed and overcome by emotions and all go teary eyed. Aastha gave such a warm and wonderful welcome to Anjali showing her that she has not forgotten the sanskaars given to her by her ayi Kalindi,(a favorite line of Anjali's if Aastha's mother ever taught her daughter anything useful) making her proud (if only she knew) and also following the Agnihotri traditions that were set in stone, upholding their maan and samman. Shlok was pleased as punch to see his wife welcome his ayi with an Aarti and was enjoying the sight to his heart's content. Earlier, he stoically tolerated all the rituals as it was a way to displease Anjali or Mrs.Agnihotri as he called her and to prove a point to her when she scolded Aastha for some deed or the other. He did not care for them much but now it was a way of expression as the heart was full of love and wanted an outlet.
Loved the way how his spitfire of a wife glared at her PD for playing such a cruel joke on her, keeping her ayi from her. For the first time ever we got to see Shlok bond with his ayi and made his regrets and apology to Anjali with a heavy heart. He had always judged her wrongly, found her wanting in her love to her children, thought she never loved him enough or appreciated him. He finally reveals that he was blind in his love of baba and saw what baba wanted him to see, hence could not see the LOVE shining from her despite her difficult circumstances. He tells Anjali that she will never tell him that he hurt her with his cruel barbs and taunts but now he wants to do everything for her and offer her the world. By a quirk of fate, he can only offer her this small house and promises to get her a bigger house soon with more comforts. He says that his ayi is very good and she got a MAD SON like him to which anjali reacts strongly and closes his mouth and says that even a mad son like him is enough. She gets peace and happiness seeing the two of them together and a house is made into a home where there is laughter, love, sharing and caring among all the members. The size is immaterial to her and she is at peace at this tiny house as she felt suffocated living in a huge mansion where her voice was not heard at all and her desires were suppressed.
Aastha had had enough and she wants some TLC too and jumps in. Shlok then flicks her cheek and says she can't bear it if he got some time with his ayi and the three of them share a beautiful hug. Anjali just simply blown away by the love and attention she is getting from her Shlok and Aastha. Ashlok fight like kids to be the recipient of Anjali's love. Later they pray to Bappa and Shlok asks biwi to make coffee for his ayi when Aastha says the Annapoorna of the house will light the stove for the first time. Anjali happily says let us both do it, pray and do pooja, to Aastha and they proceed. Loved the 3 of them here, their little nok jokh where Shlok's knowledge of how his ayi drank her coffee was imparted by Aastha and said when biwi is there why will his ayi even enter the kitchen.. He wanted her out of the way so that he could complain about his wifey, how troublesome she is and making him lose his sleep...(only due to Nirma thoughts ...)
Shlok is feeling Happy, truly happy and peaceful to see the two women he loves the most, together and happy...feeling strengthened and ready to take on the whole world if need be to keep them safe and protected and smiling.
The next day when they show off the FT proudly to Anjali, she can't believe her eyes that they have named a FT after her...loves it when MB and his wife come to meet her. The news got around that Shlok's ayi was in town and all trooped in to pay their respects to her. She was a simple mother here, without the infamous Agnihotri tag attached to her, the hauteur and snobbishness having vanished when they left the house. She was proud to hear praise of her son and when she saw him work the tables, she was saddened to see him reduced to these circumstances , what a fall it was for him...one whose every wish was fulfilled before he even completed his request, drove a Ferrari, had swarms of girls and others falling over him and was the rich scion of a successful businessman. How time changes and alters everyone from their station in life to their thinking.
I was waiting to see this scene for ages where Shlok will sleep or lay his head in his ayi's lap like a little kid and feel safe and loved. Anjali tells Shlok that his baba loves him very much and a parents happiness lies in their children. She reminds him that it is his baba's b'day in two days time. Shlok feels upset and his face pales and pretends to be asleep when Anjali shakes him. As is only fitting, Anjali is sleeping on a warm bed on a cot...with Ashlok sleeping on a mattress beside her bed on the floor. She is enjoying the simple comforts in life which her husband never gave her; respect, appreciation and love that she is getting from her kids.
Shlok gets a nightmare, poor thing was so upset on hearing baba mentioned that he dreamt that he was calling out to him, to save him, he was in trouble...Aasli wake up and then pacify him...he looked mollified but still the thoughts of baba are uppermost in his mind, falls asleep thinking of him.
Anjali is getting to wear the most precious gem of all, her son Shlok's hugs and arms around her that pales in comparison to the trunk full of jewels and gems that were given to her by her abusive husband. They may be expensive pieces but not priceless like her Shlok's love and hugs.
WHAT WILL TOMORROW OR MORE PRECISELY THE 400TH EPISODE BRING US??? A BIG TWIST, A PHATAKA DHAMAKA TWIST FOR SURE AS THE PRECAP SHOWED US. NIRANJAN AGNIHOTRI IS GOING TO BE A MERE MAN, SHORN OF HIS NAME, HIS MONEY, HIS EGO AND HIS PRIDE OF BEING NA, BY NONE OTHER THAN HIS ELDER SON VARAD WHO IS GOING TO RUN HIS BUSINESS TO THE GROUND. TREAT HIS FATHER LIKE DIRT, PUT HIM OUT ON THE STREETS OR LOCK HIM UP OR CAGE HIM IN HIS OWN HOUSE LIKE AN ANIMAL, A CAGED LION...THAT PACES ENDLESSLY IN THE CAGE...EATING AND DRINKING WHEN FED OR WHEN LET OUT TO WALK.
KUDOS TO THE ENTIRE TEAM, THE PH, THE CHANNEL AND THE DIRECTOR SAAB FOR GIVING US THIS UNFORGETTABLE, MAGICAL JODI AND MAKING IPKKND EBP A PART OF OUR DAILY LIVES.
HAPPY 400TH EPISODE. LOVE THE SHOW. LOVE AASTHA AND SHLOK.
