Also, Navya and Renuka's grief-stricken faces lingered on for a long time after the episode ended... Dadi today showed how our elders mean well but sometimes say too much. It has been going on in everyone's mind that there must be something wrong as there is no news from Gautam... but it was one of those things that were just better left unsaid. Exactly...totally agree with you on this point...it was like the elephant in the room that no one was discussing cuz no one had the real answer but Dadi couldn't seem to let it go even though she was mainly showing concern for Renuka overall but she went about the wrong way...I will say this though...us Gautam ki khair nahin when Daadi finds out about his affair
The woman who plays Renuka is I think one of the better actresses around these days. Her wistful look while watching her husband's pic and her tears in this episode would wrench any person's heart. The longing and the pain were incredibly moving and realistic like Shilpa has said above. Oh yes I agree...the actress playing her is doing a great job...quite natural in the scenes and the one you pointed out was very poignantly enacted.
I disagree with you on one point though. I didn't find the fact that Rupesh sir checked all the girls disgusting... He didn't oggle at them... did he? >.> The only way he could have recognised the girl was from her clothes. I was half expecting the girls to be lined up in a way that Rupesh sir would check them from behind, which might have been logical but VERY insulting to them.
Yeah, he stood by watching Ritz longer than the rest (except Navya of course) but that was maybe because she's notorious to having a boyfriend and hanging around with him in college so naturally she's everyone's first suspect. Plus, the teachers are responsible for the students in the picnic so they Would have to take the blame if anything bad happened. I just think that Rupesh sir is a man of rules who follows them almost to the by-hook-or-by-crook level (and also happens to look more comical than sinister most of the time, for our benefit
). Imagine what would happen if CSB and Dadi find out about this. *faints* LOL...I do get WHAT his intention was, Aimin...I didn't say that he had some ulterior motive in looking at the girls closely but the WAY he was doing it in bits DID look creepy...that's the point that Ruxana made. They've made his character caricaturish anyways...it's a cartoon.
And so the torture is thankfully over, and the episode realistically ended with Navya not meeting Anant's eyes. Arey how is that realistic??? You mean she didn't look up cuz she KNEW he was there? But I wanted them to exchange a look there...I think it would have made the scene better...Navya's crying in the end got dragged a bit
This week Soumya proved that she doesn't have the emotional range of a teaspoon. From elation, to nervousness, to apprehension, to sorrow to sweet tenderness back to nervousness and then terror.
She kept me hooked for sure. & though the episode dragged I'm still grateful for the fact that the writers still haven't given us a reason to open up a topic titled 'Things We Loathed'. LOL Soumya did better in some bits and even surprising me pleasantly so I will agree that she's been better this week portraying the range of emotions as you said but the scared expression still needs to be worked on...it gets repetitive and annoying. LOL yes so far I haven't found cause to open a "Things I loathed" topic...and I don't think I ever will either...I'll just stop posting a topic the day they give me enough cause not to like anything
