I apologize for the late post on the last three episodes. Had a ton of work and very less time.
The EP 203 started out with Twinkle putting a fresh bandage over Kunj's arms. It'd defined how she would return him his strength by earwig the insecurities he has for their relationship and his loss of power after struggling through the recent few incidences in their life. Twinkle ultimately hold the power of decision and her choice to hand over the power of her life to Kunj signified how he would always be her final choice regardless of circumstances.
Ruksana and Mehreen making there way through to room 290 to donate the blood. The number 290 indicates and resonates with fulfilling the only mission in life and the only mission of life Anita and Yuvi have is to make Twinkle's life hell. Under the pretense of being generous and kind, they walked in once again in Kunj and Twinkle's life and manipulated the situation to their benefit.
What stood out in the moment was Yuvi's eyes fixed over Kunj as the blood transfusion started. Now earlier on I mentioned how Blood symbolizes mortality and life and for both the men, especially at this point, the life is Twinkle. The positioning is as such that Twinkle even sits in between but makes sure to keep her back towards Yuvraj and focus on Kunj. It is a reflection and future declaration how Kunj had been a driving point of Twinkle's life and the one to grant the power to Kunj to control over Twinkle had been Yuvraj himself. > After the farmhouse incident and after Kunj rescued Twinkle form the sangeet kidnapping, she repeatedly questioned how Kunj could be abusive and disrespectful to her. She always had reasons to provide for Yuvraj's abuse but she did;t had any reason for Kunj's behavior because it was beyond her thinking to see Kunj could commit such an atrocious act.
Yuvraj, through his impassive and overconfident behavior drove Twinkle away from himself into Kunj's arms. His transfusing a bottle worth out of three signified how through his behavior he pushed Twinkle away, insulted there love and handed the power to lead his relationship with Twinkle into Kunj's hands by making him an observer and judge of their relationship. >> This act is reflective of the past when Yuvraj called Twinkle to Jalandhar to forcefully marry her. His lifting the veil signified and then lifting it for Twinkle afterwards signified how during the Mata Chowki, he declared the purpose of his relationship to Twinkle. Twinkle being Twinkle missed the first moment of declaration as she did that day because of being driven by love instead of vengeance and revenge. The second time on, as she thanks Yuvraj for saving her husband's life and providing a blood she realizes the reality of the blood that flows inside Kunj's veins as well. Kunj's lead and judgement on her relationship has been an eye opener and Twinkle's awareness on the conspiracies that will continue to follow her through under the name of 'past' and the reality of Yuvraj as he is equalizing with Yuvraj in terms of significance in Twinkle's life.
Leela is playing an active role in this last track of the war between Yuvraj and Twinkle unlike the last two tracks. Obviously the dynamics have changed significantly for Tanejas now and that makes it a big reason. They have nothing left to lose now as they've lost everything and fortunately enough gained back everything as well. The fear to lose and the fear to fall down doesn't linger in Leela Tanja anymore as it did when she brought up her daughter single-handedly and established herself as one of Punjab's successful businesswomen. Ever since the day of Mahi's fall, Leela as adorned silver and creme colored suits. Silver signifies cleansing of mental and emotional issues to give path to a new beginning. While being a color of wealth, it also signifies itself as a color that gives path to justice.
Leela's instrumental position in this track signifies her position of leader and advisory to Twinkle, not just as her mother but as a women who has stood against evil to keep her home secure for all the years that have gone by.
In past few episodes with Leela finding out about Kunj, she has followed through Twinkle's decision and kept everything under wraps as the couple have asked her to do so. She has also stood up for Kunj in front of Anita since the previous two episodes. I'm going to use the whole War analogy here to explain this. > I mentioned how Kunj had decided to enter the battlefield which occupied Tanejas and Luthras as a protector and guardian to Twinkle. He and Mahi are literally outsiders in this war because they were not present throughout the Anita-Leela direct rivalry and both have entered in because of the change in dynamics of rivalry and hatred between the families. It is no longer Leela-Anita, It has become Twinkle-Yuvraj. While the mothers still hold an important place alongside there children. the new players aren't welcomed until they would be absolutely required. Upon learning of Kunj' weakness, Twinkle made sure to arrange for a solution to arrange a back up for him as his position is of a fallen solider in the battlefield. However as Kunj stand with the righteous, he holds the reigns of justice in his hand in more ways then Yuvi is thinking through about. Upon finding out that Kunj has stepped in the field and that that Sarnas might become active ally, Leela became defensive and seclusive. The Sarans are the judges and the spectators and Leela cannot allow her son, her Twinkle's husband to become a casualty in any cost because of temporary weakness which has been caused by her indirectly as she had taken on the alliance between him and Twinkle. She had been the one to invite Kunj in without realizing the effects of what could happen.
Leela being the one to step up and slap Yuvi in the hospital and declaring that she has found another donor indicated how the circle would be completed eventually with Leela coming back to forefront at a unexpected time and putting the Luthras at the place they belong.
Twinkle's source of strength is no longer Leela because the position of protector has been taken on by Kunj and Mahi and with neither present, her only source is the budding love between her and Kunj. We all know at this point that whenever Twinkle gives her heart away to someone, she does it with such passion and fervor that she loses herself in the whirlwind of it. Twinkle is the girl who loves and for her, there are no rights and wrongs when it comes to holding onto her love. She is a righteous person with a set of rules that are morally correct but Twinkle is also impulsive. Twinkle's silence in front of Yuvi displayed her willingness to sacrifice her pride in order to make sure that Kunj will return back to his strength >> However Twinkle's motive to return Kunj back the power he requires and to wipe off his insecurities is selfish in matter that she is forgetting who Kunj is. Her impulsive decisions that have constantly put Twinkle through positions of self-sacrifice, wouldn't be appreciated by Kunj at all creating a rift between the two.
Upon Kunj's return, Kunj is offered a soda/soft-drink as a beverage to help him feel better by Bebe. Soft-drinks represent peaceful time because of being infused with high amounts of sugar. Last time Kunj and Twinkle drank a smilier drink, it was mixed with alcohol signifying both of them escaping the realities of there relationship and cherishing the small moments between them however a step as such allowed there insecurities to develop further on and give more space. >> If you guys remember, last time despite losing herself and being willing to kiss, Twinkle's nose came in between signifying her realizing the storm that could come in their lives. This time, before Kunj could consume the carbonated drink, it was knocked from his hands onto the floor by Twinkle despite it not being mixed with alcohol this time. The particular instance reflected on how family had always pushed Twinkle and Kunj together but the development in Kunj and Twinkle's relationship through the push of families has always been surface development without any depth. Twinkle knocking the drink and breaking the glass signified how her upcoming decision would be a cause of "disappointment" to Kunj as it would be an interruption and set back to the relationship both had build up with each other after the misunderstanding regarding the Sarna-Scandal broke out. > I mentioned earlier that the reason for Usha's acceptance for Twinkle as her daughter would be because of Kunj's happiness and her burst at Twinkle signified how initially she wouldn't be happy at finding out with the fight and coldness between Twinkle and Kunj however her interference would be brushed off by Kunj.
Bebe and Usha were by Kunj's side while Twinkle only held onto his hand, signifying how the two people to push Kunj back towards Twinkle and make him realize on how to understand Twinkle, would be the two mothers. At this point, Kunj wants to work on the relationship but he would feel stuck because of Twinkle's unpredictability and impulsive decisions for the people she loves and this track until it's end would focus on Kunj's ability to deal with Twinkle's companionship. So far Twinkle has given him the right of a husband in front of the world and kept up his name in front of the world as his wife however the commencement of this track will allow Kunj to "earn" his way through the claim of a husband's rights that Twinkle has put forward for him since she has confessed her love for him.
The story in the end is Twinkle's journey to find love. Yuvraj proved his love to Twinkle by initiating a relationship with her during their adolescence, behind their warring mothers' back and for Kunj to be able to prove his extent of love for Twinkle, he would have embrace her with her flaws and past baggage. Only after Kunj verbalizes his "understanding" of Twinkle's decisions, then he would be able to move forward on. His trust would suffer a setback and he would question it, but the ability to answer the questions instead of restarting the whole process all over again is going to a worthy act from Kunj to prove his love's worth to Twinkle.
The episode 203 ended with one important note. It was the incessant need of Yuvraj's doctor to sent Yuvraj back to the jail indicating that Yuvraj will only be manipulating his way into freedom in this track and would land back in jail after this track for all the previous crimes he has committed however before going away, Yuvi will arrange for a way to pull Anita out of Sarna House as well.
Leela has regarded Kunj as her son from the day after the roka ceremony and she had seen what a gem of a person he is. Her belief in Kunj's upbringing, in Kunj's reaction and her understanding of his behavior has allowed Kunj to share the same level of respect and attention that Twinkle shares in the Taneja household. Usha finally acknowledging that aspect was not just a wonderful treat but her embracing Leela as a partner in standing behind her son. Usha thanking Leela for all that she has done so far signified Kunj's immediate family along with Bebe, coming together with the Tanejas in the bigger picture of war between the Tanejas vs. Luthras.
The following scene afterwards is with Twinkle handing Kunj a glass full of beetroot juice. Just earlier she knocked down a glass and then later comes up in the privacy of their room to hand him the juice. Beetroot is typically given to help reverse chronic diseases and to is also added in detoxing diets. Beetroot symbolizes love, the kind that helps heals and provide strength. Twinkle handing over the juice signified how once the truth about the blood-donation and Yuvi's blackmail comes out in front of Kunj, he would be able to deal with the blow because of his believe in Twinkle's love for him and knowing that whatever step Twinkle took, must've been for his sake.
He later pulls Twinkle up towards him asking her to talk, however she stays mum and asks him to tell her what he wants to hear. He pulls her forward for the kiss and instead pulls up a mask. Now masquerade balls go back to 13th century and the conclusive purpose of the mask was to conceal identity in face of the partner. Kunj pulling up a mask, and that too that was painted black and red, signified how in upcoming episodes regardless of understanding Twinkle's stance and even after calming down, he would continue to bother her and conceal his feels of gratitude towards her. Only after witnessing Twinkle on verge of tears and her constant restlessness would he allow himself to go to her as a husband.
Kunj wearing an aqua blue shirt signified how in current state, he understands Twinkle's pain and worry for him however despite that he'll be trying his best to make her realize of the stability they provide for each other as a team. Light blue is also a color that of peace, clarity and communication which signifies how in future when Twinkle would be standing up for their relationship, he would need to follow her lead in order to allow her to choose her. His understanding go her thoughts is becoming more necessary and he cannot allow himself to go with the flow and be dismissive.
The scene is followed up by Anita trying to once again bribe the police officer who had been assigned to keep guard on the prisoner. The hospital setting determines the opportunity of life and the two men in Twinkle's life are literally holding onto their lives and the right to live it. While Kunj is in a compromising position because of being sick, Yuvraj has fallen into the web of his own and isolated himself because of his obsession for Twinkle. Yuvraj willingly giving his blood, a source of life and morality to Kunj determined how he could've been able to redeem himself by letting Twinkle go however his obsession clouding over, he along with the advise of his mother has manipulated the situation to a position where it the appearance is bent towards him but he owes Twinkle more then ever now. The fact that the police officer denied the money to keep Yuvraj away from jail signified that on the end, Yuvraj would be retreating back to the jail for the injustice Twinkle has had to suffer because of him. > You can always prolong and bent the road to a particular destination with money, but justice is served in the end and for the good to prevail over, and for Twinkle to make the decision of choosing Kunj as her partner to be with her throughout her life, the men would have to reach to their final destinations.
Leela calls in the donor at 12 = a number that represents God power and authority however with Mohan not showing up until 12:30, signified how the devil/Yuvraj and Anita would be leading the game on for the next few days until their time is up and their second chances are over for once and for all.
Leela bringing in another donor and Anita buying the donor off signified how the control of the war between Tanejas and Luthras lies with Anita because of her significant position in the Sarna mansion, her strong financial ties that can persuade the stronger Sarna family towards her and her initiation of the attacks on Tanejas until she is out of resources. Anita will only back off after all of her resources are drained and nothing remains in her hand that would allow her to further bent the laws of justice. The scene was followed up by a tashan-filled phone call between Anita and Leela the night before which concluded into Leela allowing Anita to back up and at least live her life without falling further down the deep end that she keeps walking towards.
Kunj has gotten 1 bottle of blood that has allowed him to continue on his basic activities on terms of without exerting himself however he still requires 3 more bottles. > Yuvraj had unknowingly allowed Kunj to have power over Twinkle's decisions by being brash and unkind towards Twinkle's pain when she was being forced to marry Kunj however for the next instances, he had been careful and calculative in his approach to push Kunj away from Twinkle and isolate Twinkle for himself. 3 is also a number of divine power and Kunj being able to get three bottle of blood from Yuvraj which would add up to 4 would give him the conclusive authority over Twinkle by eliminating Yuvraj to ever become a choice in future after this track. >> Twinkle at this point, through reasoning of sacrifice has the power to leave Kunj however once she has spent a night by physically giving herself to Kunj, her decision of a life-partner would become concrete.
After quite a while Leela changed the color of her suits from monochromatic silver, creme and white to something with more color. The yellow color is associated with the sun, the strength it provides, the optimism it carries and it is a color of enlightenment. Yellow is also associated with dieties in Hinduism and Leela being the one who has now handed over the ground-work decisions to Twinkle, and transitioned on as an advisor hold the power in truest sense to end the circle of war between the Tanejas and Luthras in the end. Ultimately Anita realizing that she had pointed at Leela with a baseless accusation would earn Leela the victory.
Twinkle switched on to the color pink. Pink is a nurturing color that generates unconditional love and warmth. It combines the innocence and purity of white along with energy, fervor and passion of red. Twinkle running and calling Kunj to move him away from the car that was rushing towards him and her agreeing to Yuvi's terms without paying heed to Leela's advice signified the blend of love and protectiveness she has grown for Kunj. Twinkle has repeatedly said that when it comes to Kunj's safety, her brain stops working and she makes an impulsive decision that feels like the only way out and the only way to keep the person she loves safe.
Twinkle's impulsivity has earned her the title of drama-queen and siyaapa-queen because her reaction had come from the core of her heart instead of from her brain. Twinkle deciding on giving into Yuvi's terms and conditions has done so because of the purity f her heart and because of the dire need for husband to gain back his strength.
While Leela maintains that they can arrange something else and look throughout the country, Anita being just as powerful and on the opposition has the means to bent the system just as much as they have the means to arrange for a donor. The only people who hold higher authority are the Saranss and the Sarnas will be there to stand up when Kunj would have the possibility of being a casualty however in faces of Leela and Anita, they would not be stepping in. Twinkle's reasons and her decisions are just as much valid just as Kunj's disappointment and anger would be in next two-three episodes. >> The mention of a lawyer by Leela while Kunj, who is working on a "project" was on his phone signified the return of Mahi that will allow the Lutheras to be served with justice that they had piled up against Twinkle.
Kunj upon returning from college, finds a apples and oats for lunch. Apples are the forbidden fruits in many religion and cultures but alongside that sinful connotation attached to it, they are source of life and symbolize the circle of life and death. If attained through proper means, the apple with provide you with healing powers however if tried to attain through wrong means, the apple will push over the edge of your own confidence because of your temptation and immorality. Two other things that were on the table and offered to Kunj were oats and orange juice. Oats signify fertility and Orange juice signify vitality.
Kunj was given the apple by Bebe, half of which he consumed upon her pushing it in his mouth. He "IS" the husband of Twinkle which gives him right over her however has he has to prove that he is worthy of the right that he's been handed; the reason why he dismisses the healthy food options offered to him and goes on to figure out his food for the day.
He is surrounded by Usha and Bebe throughout the ordeal. The ingredients visible are onions, green peppers, leafy vegetables and water. Onions are known for their healing powers since the days of ancient civilizations. Kunj cuts the Onion that makes him cry. The layers of onion and the chopping of those layers signify removing the roadblocks and limitations of your life. Since onions are symbols of eternity, the layers also symbolize as multi-dimensions they provide in order to keep the core of the onion strengthen. >> In this instance, Kunj's source of life is Twinkle and Twinkle is the person Kunj needs to understand completely. Just knowing that she is innocent and impulsive would't cut it for Kunj to be worthy of her. The tears symbolize emotional release an the one by Kunj's side as he realizes the reason behind Twinkle's decisions. His next ingredient is green peppers and leafy vegetables that symbolize healing and restoration of health. Bebe giving him water signified how it'll be Bebe who'll push Kunj back towards Twinkle after purifying his thoughts from the doubts of Twinkle's past relationships.
Kunj later on feeds Twinkle signifying how he'll be the one to reach out to Twinkle as she wouldn't have much to say besides revealing the truth to him and even if she does try to say something, he'll not be willing to listen to her.
The following scenes after wards were literally a jumbling mess with jumping towards one point to another however I was glad to see that the "project" that employs Kunj's future and brings justice to Twinkle's misgivings and the harm she has had to bear through. Twinkle's realization of the betrayal she's handing over to Kunj in return of his blind trust in him is going to hold her steps in the future as through that she would allow herself to sacrifice in the worst possible ways by not being there for Kunj when he needs her to be there for him however at finding Twinkle in such a situation, Kunj would be willing to give his life up to save her. > Twinkle diverting him from the sacrifice and the lies towards the project indicated that she'll push him back towards his life while isolating herself away because of Kunj's disappointment in her. She'll allow him to seek out justice for her, as she did for her sister and with her choosing him and her own downfall instead of Yuvi, she'll be cementing her place permenantly in Kunj's life.
Yuvi is dying to be a free bird however his drive for life his driven by his obsession to attain Twinkle, only because she rejected him and her ferociousness attracts him. Ironically, instead of being a free bird, Yuvi will further cage himself.
EP 206: April 25th 2016
Anita and Yuvi through the episodes have been dressed in bright and deep shade of orange instead of a neutral shade of orange. The color represents deceit and distrust reflecting on how both can go back on their words at any given moment given the leverage Twinkle has "allowed" them to have.
The episode started out with Twinkle outing her intentions after seeing Kunj blindly trusting her and realizing the betrayal she'll hand him over. However as said above, when it comes to Kunj, Twinkle's brain stops working and the fist thought that strikes her is usually the last one too because her brain freezes up. Leela's silence throughout signified how she no longer holds the decision making ability but can only continue to lead and advice.
The majority of episode was centered on Yuvi getting beat up and the reason why the particular scene was important was that despite Twinkle giving Yuvraj a second and last chance because of the graveling situation she herself is in, Yuvraj is not a free bird he considers himself to be. Nor does he have the power that Twinkle enjoys ever since the war between her and Yuvraj had gotten on equal footing. Yuvraj threatening Twinkle and then falling on the ground after receiving a slap from her; is beaten up by the society signifying how the scandals and the famous warring relationship between the Tanejas vs. Luthras will be turning it's back on Luthras as Yuvraj's reputation will be further tarnished pushing his fate towards justice that is required by throwing him back to the dingy cell he had been dying to escape.
Yuvraj later joins his hand in front of Twinkle however the next time he'll be in such a position would be because of Kunj and Mahi putting him in a position where he would be forced to apologize to Twinkle regardless of the outcome of the situation.
Upon her return to the Sarna mansion, Twinkle finds Kunj sitting with Usha and Bebe sitting on the other side. Kunj expressing his doubts on the "kamaal" she has been accomplishing instead of the problems she usually creates. Over hearing such, Bebe commends Twinkle on her purity and how she usually thinks through despite appearing impulsive. > The actions taken on by Twinkle along with Leela would be revealed to Bebe and Usha at best instead of the whole family from what I've gathered so far and in doing so, Bebe would be the first one who despite being disapproving of Twinkle hiding the truth from Kunj, would support her just as Leela.
Bed is the most intimate places shared by a couple. It signifies partnership at best. It serves as the most natural place to be in. Twinkle dressed int he ivory-champagne and pink suit, which she usually wears during tormenting times and pulling the bedcovers on signified her trying to bury and hide the lies she's spoken to Kunj in order to appear normal. Kunj coming from behind signified how he'll be able to catch onto her lies. Making the bed signifies being rigid and stiff. A change that Kunj has managed to notice however has spoken about yet.
"Koi khambakht jurat to kare tujhe aise chune ki." - Kunj uttering the same upon realizing Twinkle's taken aback and shocking reaction was not just to be smooth with his wife but a warning to Twinkle that he wouldn't be tolerating her interest or anyone's else' interest in her while they are willingly with each other. > Twinkle was grasped similarly before by Yuvi when she had decorated the room and instead of Kunj, it had been Yuvi to touch her in the same way Kunj hugged her from behind today. The change and the nervousness in her body language would not be ignored by Kunj for any longer.
Today's episode was shorter and limited in presentation as all the previous three episodes have been. The slow build up towards climax and the revelation of the truth to Kunj is keeping me on my toes. I hope the execution of the future episodes is just as good as it was during Manohar's scandal episodes.
Do leave your thoughts on the episodes!!
