A vengeful lot, aren't we? But, in all of these, except for the Eureka
moment, Dev will garner the sympathy of Grandma, Brother and
Sister-in-Law, for he'll be the victim.
So, here goes. An attempt at "Others".
Maan and Geet successfully played cupid for the adorable little brother
and cousin sister. A marriage was arranged between Dev and Nandini.
The marriage preparations were ongoing. Everyone was jubilant.
[We get a promo of another dream marriage, this time between Dev and Nandini.]
Dev, the reformed soul, approached Maan and Geet. He told them,
"Bro and Geet, you have done so much for me. Bro, you footed the bill
for my marriage to Naintara. Geet, your family footed the bill for my
marriage to you. So, let me foot the bill for this marriage."
Happiness abounded everywhere. All the pre-wedding rituals went off well,
leaving everyone inebriated with the new-found joy and happiness that filled their
lives. It was a grand celebration to celebrate the nuptials of Dev
Khurana with Nandini, his flavour-of-the track (as Geek puts it).
Then, it was time for the much-awaited moment.
Finally, the day of the wedding is here. Nandini and Dev are at the mandap. They stand up to take the pheras around the fire.
Just then, a female voice rings out authoritatively. "Ruk jao, yeh shaadi nahin ho sakti."
Everyone freezes. Dev could not see the person because of the
crowds gathered around. He adjusts his spectacles and thinks to
himself, "It can't be Naintara, can it? She is still in coma."
He is shocked to see a female police officer pushing her way through the
crowds. The epaulettes on her should identify her as a police officer
of the rank of Senior Inspector. Her name badge identified her as
Beeji stepped forward and said, "Madam Inspector, what is the meaning of
this? Why did you say that this marriage cannot take place?"
In reply, Inspector Vengeful Audience, said, "Ma'am, I am here to arrest
Mr Dev Khurana for a case pending against him charging him with the commission of several offences,
including bigamy and cheating, committed by him and Naintara -- his first
wife -- against a young girl called Geet Handa. He married her whilst
married to Naintara, swindled her property, impregnated her and
disappeared. We had arrested him earlier, but he was released on bail.
His bail has now been cancelled."
A completely perplexed Dev said, "But, ma'am, why would my bail be
cancelled? I am now a reformed man. Naintara and I were let off on bail
as our lawyers proved that we had done no wrong. "
Inspector Vengeful Audience replied, "Mr Khurana, Naintara regained
consciousness early yesterday morning. Whilst she hung in between
life and death, she felt remorse for what she did. So, on
waking up, she immediately gave a statement to the police confessing the crimes she
had committed along with you and gave us the number of the locker in which she had preserved the evidence of the wrongdoing -- Locker 008. In light of this,
the police moved the court for cancellation of your bail, which had
been obtained on false grounds. Naintara is already in judicial
custody. She is now a reformed woman and wants to atone for her sins in
prison. She told me to pass on a message to you, 'Together, a girl we
did swindle, Together in jail, shall we spin the spindle.' So,
we are here to take you into police custody. You will continue to remain in custody until your case is tried by the court."
Everyone is spellbound.
At last, Maan and Geet come forward. In unison, they say, "Ma'am, this
can't be done. We've forgiven him. Surely, that must count for
something. You can't arrest him. He wants to live. He has just found a
new love. Surely, everyone deserves another chance."
Inspector Vengeful Audience said, "Who are you?"
Geet said, "I am Geet Khurana. I am also Geet Handa, the complainant,
you spoke about." And Maan said, "I am Maan, her husband and brother of
Casting a sympathetic smile towards the couple, Inspector Vengeful
Audience said, "Oh, I see. Well, I'm sorry, Mr and Mrs Khurana. I have to arrest
Dev. Whilst you may have forgiven Dev, he and Naintara still have a
debt to repay to society. You'll forgive me, won't you?"
So saying, she led Dev off.
Nandini approaches Maan. She tells him, "Jijaji, you were right. One
cannot find out about a book until one has read it completely. I just
completed reading the book called "Dev" and realised that it is utter
trash. Could you recommend another one, please?"
PS: The tagline of the promo for Dev and Nandini's wedding read: Dreams do come true.
Bravo...you were fabulous with your innovation in script and
loved it 'Together, a girl we
did swindle, Together in jail, shall we spin the spindle.' Dreams do come true
sarcasm was...too good...Do send me when you write something like
this...Just that it should not be pro-Cvs.
