Edit: Guddu's reaction to this comment and the fact that his anger seems to have gone away tells you just how far gone he is (in love). He has it in his heart that Runjhun does not associate herself with him but rather with Abhi and I think this comment makes him think that Runjhun is associating her with him... so she's actually referring to the two of them as one entity. It says a lot that two words could have such a strong impact on Guddu. His insecurity just flew out the window.
I have been watching two other soaps on and off and I thought it was interesting that in both of them... the male leads who have professed their love for the female lead desert the female lead as soon as they think the woman did something wrong. Both of these shows have shown the female lead being kicked out of the house and the husband has basically just stood by. Guddu for all his faults... when he finally realizes and admits to himself that he loves Runjhun will NEVER desert her. He will fight for her against the entire world if he has to. He misunderstands her now... but they're still not at the level of a trusted marriage yet. I cannot wait until Guddu becomes aware of his feelings and accepts Runjhun and she accepts him.
mind you, i'm working on this blind since i don't speak hindi. but i carefully looked at that scene when runjhun said "hamaari dukaan" to guddu. i had to look at it numerous times, seeing how the phrase affected guddu.
i think rani is on to something. the camera is focused on runjhun, then she says "hamaari dukaan" (and something else), then the camera moves to guddu. notice how his eyes move up, indicating that the what runjhun says struck him. runjhun continues, and you notice how guddu's eyelids lower a little, again indicating that he is thinking hard about what is being said. the look is not so much softened, rather it is more pensive. at some point (because i don't know what runjhun is saying), guddu looks a bit annoyed, but still remains quiet, and listens to runjhun. as runjhun leaves, we see guddu slamming his hand on the counter. that one particular act indicates that in that exchange between them, runjhun got the upper hand not because she beat guddu in her argument, per se. knowing guddu, it's more like runjhun beat him in the argument because he knows that what runjhun says is true.
i believe that ranni's interpretation is highly possible. as i have observed before, the CV's in this show are more into emotion-based storylines instead of plot based. i have also observed, as have others, that they are using the visual medium more to convey the story. by not relying on dialogue to say what the characters are feeling, or thinking, this enables the show to have so many interpretations.
as we all know, guddu does not care one bit about the store. his reasons for going back today was mostly because he took what the mamas and the mamis say as a dare. he did say before that his only reason for putting up the mobile phone store was because of runjhun's dare, and that whether or not the store earns is not anymore a concern for him. notice also how he was arguing with runjhun prior to her saying "hamaari dukaan", and yet he kept silent after that. later on, we see him saying that he wants to apologize to the mamas and the mamis for his behavior earlier in the day. it was very guddu style, very abbrassive, but he was still apologizing.
now, what brings this apology. guddu, as we all know, will never apologize to the mamas and the mamis. he also doesn't care how the store fares. so what brought this about? let us remember that during his drunken state last friday, his biggest concern was abhi, and how he feels runjhun has emotional attachments to abhi. i believe that rani is correct in saying that by runjhun referring to the store as "our store", then somehow, guddu has this feeling that runjhun and he are bonded in some way already.
does guddu know that this is what he is thinking? probably not. does he know that this is what he is feeling? probably not. but feeling and knowing are two different things. guddu might not verbalize these feelings in his head, but i believe that this is what guddu was feeling, even for just a split second.
