A better epi than yesterday...thanks largely in part to the focus on Navya's family...the only relatable family in this show :-)
1) Loved the scene b/w Navya's dad and Daadi: Such an adorable and touching scene honestly...especially the little touches like the Daadi being grumpy and him handing her the pen...such natural chemistry b/w them...they actually seemed believable as mother and son...especially when she said stuff like I know your antics since childhood and how you come and sit quietly in front of me when you want something...lol...and her modified line..."MAA khoob samjhe"...awww
And such a REAL scene I feel...the doubts that parents face...those moments of self-doubt...am I being too strict? Am I being giving them too much leeway?? Makes you think what a difficult job parenting really is...the way Navya's dad mused out loud about how he feels he's made some mistakes with Renuka being the first child...maybe he put too many restrictions on her and never let her LIVE her life fully...and now she's a mother at such a young age...his anxiety as a parent...wondering about his mistakes...and his trust in Navya...the way he explained that to Daadi...honestly superb scene...really loved it.
2) The ending scene b/w Daadi and Navya: LOL I think I'm becoming a major Daadi fan
...the actress portrays her SO naturally...and just the right touches of the knowing looks she gives, the sly taunts sometimes, the rigid conservatism, yet willing to bend her rules sometimes as well as she did in this scene SO cutely
One note in this scene though...Soumya should watch out for how much she keeps moving her eyes around in a scene to apparently show she's "thinking"...it looks odd...but she otherwise looked very sweet when she breaks into a huge grin and hugs Daadi
3) The Anant-Navya convo: Nice enough although I found his comment about her badi badi aankhon mein aansoo kinda random
...significant line..."toh finally ab hum dono jaa rahe hain"...baaki sabko bhool gaya Anant?? Whatever happened to his "friends ke liye picnic chalo" excuse?
...Jokes apart...the latter half was better after Navya explains to him why she can't go...the way he instantly first cajoles her to manaao her daadi but then quiets down as he listens to how grave the situation has become at her home...
On a side note: I see a lot of comments in the forum today about ppl saying they hate Renuka...I don't get where this is coming from...why HATE on her?? Renuka seems like a human character to me...she's on the bitter side yes but look at the INSIGHT we got into her character today...the first born child who was largely restricted from doing most things while growing up...wasn't allowed to go out much or something and then married off at a young age...and now she's a mother at 22!...such a young age when she's hardly fully matured herself and she's become a mother...let's atleast try to understand where she is coming from...her only grouse today was that there was drama in the house...she is otherwise a supporting and very protective sister to Navya...I don't find her brusque manner to be reason enough to HATE her
And yeah I would have liked to see HOW Center Shock Baba gave permission to Anant
...again a scene they randomly decided to leave to the audience's imagination?
Their narrative style is kinda patchy I must say.
